For My Friend

I have a coworker who is moving on to greater opportunities... Sad for me, wonderful for her.
We clicked very quickly & she instantly became my friend.
As this is her last week with us, I wanted to be sure to give her a gift from my heart. 
Of course gifts from my heart are always handmade :) 
 (I might (will) include some homemade chocolate chip cookies too)


Recipe :

Jaded Blossom - Card Mat dies, Daisy and Best Friends stamp sets

Jaded Blossom Valentine Challenge

I am heading off to Band Camp tomorrow for a couple days of fun! As I will be out there with over 80 grade 7 & 8 students on Valentines Day, I knew I would have to make treat bags for them all! 
As Jaded Blossom decided to throw a challenge out there, I knew I'd have to enter with these 90, yes 90 treat bags. We can't have the little ones who live at the camp be left out either!

I bought little zip bags from Dollarama for the candy. Filled them with a few each and topped it off with some Jaded Blossom goodies!

Fancy Treat Topper Die
Simple Sayings Valentine Edition
Tic Tac Toe (the sketched heart)

Thanks for popping by today!
Enjoy your Valentine's tomorrow!

Happy New Year - Trendy Twine

Trendy Twine Guest Designer - Candy Cane Planner

Happy Sunday Crafters!
Today is my last guest design post for the month of November with Trendy Twine:( 
I wanted to share with you something I love to do - plan!
Decorating my planner is probably my favorite way to craft these days. If you are anything like me, extremely busy, then know that I set aside one day a month to get my planner crafted for the entire month. That way I'm not feeling panicked to get my weeks done before they happen.

I enjoy picking papers to start! 
Then comes the stamping.

Today I used 3 stamps from Annie's Paper Boutique.
And finished off my little banners with Candy Cane Trendy Twine!

Here are the items I used today.
Candy Cane Trendy Twine
All of my die cuts were from CDD - Plan It Dies

Thank you so much for having me design this month - it's been a blast!
Until next time,

Trendy Twine - Fall Decor - Guest Designer

Hello Everyone!
I wanted to create a fun decor piece. Here is what I came up with.
 I love finding new ways to use twine! 

I got my hubby to cut me some scrap pieces of wood. I sanded them down a bit, but left them a bit rough to give it texture. I used Martha Stewart's metallic 'rose gold' paint for the base.

I created nail art with the beautiful Spiced Pumpkin twine from Annie's Paper Boutique.
The leaves are from Jaded Blossom  - Autumn Leaves.  
Thank you for taking a peak at my project today!
