Not a card Friday: Sweet Treat

Happy Friday!
We are continuing our sweet theme over at Pink by Design.  Today I made a fun milk carton candy holder from the silhouette store.  I found the cherries in the store also and added some peachy keen faces to them to sweeten them up a bit!  The sentiment is from a "soon to be released" set next Friday at Pink by Design!!

This would make a simple but sweet gift for anyone!!  Don't forget to enter our Sweet Challenge.  You have until tomorrow at 11:59p.m. CST.  One lucky person will win a $10 gift card to Pink by Design!!  Click HERE to go to the challenge :-)

Have a sweet day!

Learning to sew!

Hi Everyone,
Last Christmas my husband bought me a sewing machine because I mentioned it would be fun to learn! Well, it sat in the box for a LONG time before I brought it out.  I am slowly trying little projects here and there to figure it all out.
Well.... my boys were invited to a birthday party for twin girls who have absolutely everything! Their mom said they love art, so I decided to attempt art purses for them.  I got in a little over my head because I didn't have a pattern and I had to make two, but in the end I am happy with how they turned out.  I got the writing tablets from the dollar store and covered them with decorative paper so they would match.

The girls loved them :-)  Paper is definitely easier to work with but I am slowly getting the hang of it!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Pink by Design Valentine's Day Blog Hop!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

By now you should all have a lot of Valentine's inspiration for those last minute cards and gifts ;-)  If you came from Paula you are in the right place!

Don't forget to leave a comment on every blog to have a chance to win this awesome prize package from Sarah Hamer and Pink by Design!! What a sweet Valentine's day gift that would be huh?!?!?

My first gift idea was created as a gift for my little boys Cubbie Class at church.  I knew that they were going to get destroyed and thrown away pretty quick so I used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette.  The cute little sentiment is from Sweet Grams 2.

I whipped a bunch of these out in about fifteen minutes and my boys were so proud of them :-)

While I was at it, I decided to make a few individual cards for their teachers.  All of the sentiments came from the "Love Always" stamp set, and these cute little guys are all from the silhouette store!

Aren't they adorable little animals?!?!   I could just cuddle them ;-)

Now I am going to send you along to Sabrina!  Thank you for hopping along with us today!

Here is the order of the blog hop in case you need it:


Valentine's Day Gift Idea!

Hi Everyone!
I am really excited to show you a gift I have been working on for the past few days!  I wanted to make something special for my husband this year, and as soon as I found this frame (on clearance at Hobby Lobby!) I knew what I wanted to do!

Here is the before:

This is a metal frame that was marked down to $5 and I knew that vinyl would stick really well to it.  I wanted to remind my husband everyday how much I love him, so I thought I could add some chalkboard vinyl with the exact amount of days!  The font I used is Playball and I found the hearts in the silhouette store. I used Pink by design Twine and some heart embellishments to finish it off.  I love how I can keep changing the days as I go!

Here it is after:

Isn't this a fun idea!!  I am going to keep it next to his side of the bed so he sees it everyday.  Click HERE to see the website I used to find out how many days it had been since I fell for my sweet guy :-)

Thanks for stopping by today! Come back tomorrow and check out the fun Valentine's Day blog hop I am in for Pink by Design!!
