Valentine Nugget Boxes

Oh, look what I made for Valentine's Day!! I think they turned out great!! I found a post about nugget boxes on the internet, but I think the little Hersey's Chocolate Bars are smaller in the States, bucause when I first tried making one, my little chololate bars wouldn't fit in
So I played around with the pattern a bit, and this is what I came up with. I just finished making 11 of these adorable boxes.

I used Stampin' Up paper in Cameo Coral, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel. The love hearts on the top are from My Sentiments Exactly, and all other images are from Stampin' Up! The organdy ribbon is from Stampin' Up! too.

Now if only I can not eat the chocolate bars before Valentine's Day...I might have to hide them on myself! lol...

A couple of cards for you!

Hi Everyone,

I have a couple of cards for you today. Hope you enjoy them!!

The first one is a Bella Card!! Have you heard about Stamping Bella?? I bought a bunch of images about a month ago, but haven't had time to use them yet. (huge gasp!!) I love these bellas so much!

I used my Stampin' Up! Wondercolor Watercolor crayons to color the bella and also used a little glitter on the flowers. (This card was so much fun to create!) The paper on the bottom is from Michael's, and did you see, I used a Stampin' Up! marker to doodle a bit around the bella and the top of the card.

My second card today is another Valentine's card. I went to Estevan last weekend, to see my husband and we closed a deal on a house there (actually the house is in Beinfait - about 10 min. from Estevan - and alot cheaper!!) Anyways, there is a store there called "House of Stationery" - and they actually had some nice stamps. I was actually really impressed with that store, and will be visiting them again!! The stamps I bought are from My Sentiments Exactly, and I used them on the following card. I just didn't have enough Valentines and love stamps, now I am feeling much better!! In case you are wondering, yes I do have the cuttlebug, and yes I do love it, I used the swirls embossing folder on this card and the ribbon is from All my Memories.

Again, I hope you enjoy my cards, and I will talk to ya all later!!
