Love is in the air

So I just couldn’t resist sharing some more swaps. 

So what is sharing here? A few swaps I received from Marlene Salvato at our 2013 Stampin’ Up! Leadership event I went to in Orlando, Florida! 

Seriously are these just the cutest ever?  I LOVE the Little Penguin! I have another one from her that I’ll share with you all later!  I also love the lay out on the both cards. The color combo and textures on the other card are just AWESOME!

Ok, going to relax now it’s chilly and I have a quiet house! Need to finish a blanket that I’m making for my grandmother. Which you can see HERE next week.

Check back in tomorrow for some more ideas! Until then….

Purse Treat Holders

Valentine purse treat holders Morning Stampers!  Wanted to share this fun project with you all this morning.  I had fun making this and am working on a video for this fun Purse "treat" holder. 

This was inspired by a box of chocolates that was in a basket that my hubby got from work and I knew when I saw it I had to make one similar and I finally got around to it.  So enjoy and I will be showing you how to make this very soon! Thanks for stopping by!  Questions let me know.

Here is a close up of box #1

 I made a window in the front of of it with the 1 3/4 inch punch.  I also used acetate for the window.

This was my 2nd attempt at the box. The first is below.
