As my chicks grow...

And as I find more time to get creative, I thought I would share some of my creations, as well as my time with others. Hopefully I will make new friendships and create lasting bonds over paper, adhesive, and embellishments. So sit back, relax, and let's share...have a cup of coffee, or tea, or in my case a and let's just have a blast creating, finding new projects to make together, and gathering our supplies for future endeavors!

Valentine Projects

Well, I have been crafting away the past few days. Still have a number of projects planned, but I wanted to share what I have been working on lately. 

Here is the first pic of my recent projects. 
This is a Starbucks frappaccino 4 pack. I made this one for my sis. The paper is from the Target dollar section. The ribbon is from K I Memories, American Crafts, and Craft Essentials. The "CUTIE" is from a sticker set in the Target dollar section and the flower is Prima with Stickles in the center.

This is a closeup of the front of the first fourpack.

This is all 4 bottles with the carton. All of the papers are from the same pack from the Target dollar spot. The large flowers are  Prima Island Pastel. I used baby blue stickles and pink stickles on the centers. 

For the bottom layer of cardstock I used Bazzill. This is the first of the 4 bottles. I filled this one with Conversation Hearts.

This is the second bottle. I filled it with plain M&M's. 

The third bottle is filled with dark chocolate M&M's and the fourth is filled with Dove Chocolate hearts. 

The top of the bottles. The designs are made with rub-ons that were also in the dollar section at Target.

This set I made for my brother. I hadn't filled the bottles yet when I took the pics. Again, all the paper and embellishments are from the Target dollar spot and the ribbons are the same as the previous project.

Bottles one and two. Filled with Conversation Hearts and I ended up filling the other with Hershey's Kisses. 

I filled these up with peanut M&M's and Peanut Butter M&M's. 
Last pic... These are 3D stickers also came from the Target Dollar Bin.
I would really love for any comments on my most recent project. Hopefully there will be many more projects to come! I look forward to hearing from you!
