1/26/11 Valentine Chocolate

I got this cute idea from Aaron B. She posted directions on her blog


Aaron put a tea bag in hers which was equally cute but I don't really know any tea drinkers...so I did candy.

1/18/11 Need a good book to read?

I LOVED this book. It is written by David Nicholls. It is written about 1 day every year and what is going on between this girl and this guy over like a 20 yr period. It is very unpredictable!

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers!

Hand made flowers are very popular right now.
I'd like to show you a couple.

The second one I made at Archivers using some new flower punch system. It's really beautiful. I am thinking of all the stuff I already own that I could use to make these.

After punching, you curve the petals with a tool, color the edges with copic, glue them on to a snowflake punched base and then put yellow flocking in the middle for "pollen".

The first one is made out of ribbon! It's really easy.
First punch a circle out. Then adhere the ribbon to the center of the circle with a brad. Then, twist the ribbon, adhering it to the paper circle every now and then with a glue dot. Keep twisiting til the circle is full!

Card class for January

Some of my "students" requested Thank you cards. So here they are.

"Kind of" an H2H challenge

This card's colors remind me of the H2H challenge. I cant officially make it an entry because none of the papers or products are CTMH! It's lovely though, isnt it?

H2H challenge

I didn't have the new blue ink and we were allowed to use sorbet so I did that. Its kind of boring but maybe next month will be better!
