I've Got the Hots for you! + Freebie!

Hey folks! I'm happy to say that I think I'm finally over the pregnancy queaziness. I have felt great today and today is the first time in a long time that I've felt like crafting just for the fun of it. So here's what I've been up to!

I had a bunch of red hots laying around here that needed to be used up, so I made these cute little Valentine treat baggies to put in my craft booth for sale. I'm going to price them at $1.00 each (b/c they were so easy to do and who doesn't like a bargain?!)
I've also included the bracket file for you to create your own. My baggies were 3"x4", so I cut the RED bracket at 3" wide and the white one at 2.75" wide. To get the sentiment on the white bracket, I measured and printed them out on plain white cardstock and then used a small piece of double stick tape to attach the bracket in place over each sentiment (hold them up in the light to make sure you have them placed just right). Then I ran the same piece of cardstock through the printer again (this time with white brackets attached) and poof! They're done. Just peel them off the cardstock, fold them in half and glue them to the red bracket. I then just used a Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to attach them to the baggies.
Ok, now go make your own!
Here is the sentiment (all ready for you) and the svg file for the bracket.

BIG NEWS & a Valentine's Card

It's so nice to get back in the swing of things after the holidays. I'm having a lot of fun preparing for Valentine's Day. I didn't start making cards until after Valentine's last year, so this is the first time I've ever tried them. I'm lovin' it!

Of course, it is so easy with Lindsay's cute little digi stamps. It didn't take me long at all to make this card, I saw these cute little birdies from the Love Grows Here Set and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them! The cute little Lover's Lace across the top of the card is an svg freebie from You can find it here.
Also today and tomorrow everything at MyGrafico is 25% off!
The sketch is from 2 Sketches 4 you.
And now for the BIG NEWS and your Thursday freebie! Yep, you guessed it!
I'm pregnant!!!
Enjoy this cute little stork and baby!

Don't forget to stop by Lindsay's blog for a freebie and to check out the rest of the DT's work!

A Quick Sympathy Card

I don't know if I've ever mentioned it or not, but I'm in charge of our church's flower fund. So when a family member of someone in our congregation passes away, I'm in charge of sending a card and some sort of plant or food or what have you. So here is a quick little sympathy card that I whipped up tonight.
The senitment was acutally printed using my computer. I just measured a rectangle the size of my card (before folding it) then I made my sentiment and positioned it where I wanted it on the card. Then before printing, I deleted the rectangle that I used as my card template. Just like stamping!
The next thing I did was use the tulips freebie from SVGCuts. It took just minutes to cut and glue together. Then all I had to do was assemble the card.

Stretchy Bracelets I Made

Even though I was on vacation in Florida, I still found time to squeeze in something crafty! I made these stretch bracelets using some beads and stretch cord that I bought at JoAnn's. I'd never been in a JoAnn's before, but I fell in love! I wish we had a store like it here in kentucky.
I plan to sell them in my craft booth for $6-$8 depending on how fancy they are. Sorry I couldn't get better photos.

Butterfly Valentine's Card! + Word Art Freebie!

Well I'm sure you've been wondering where I've been! I slipped off to Florida for a couple of weeks for vacation. I was in Ft. Myers. It is much warmer down there than it is here in Kentucky! It is nice to be home though. I was having a crafting withdawl! Although I did find something to fill the void. I'll post about that tomorrow! I've been making bracelets!

Ok now to the card....I made this cute little valentine's card using the butterfly svg from the "Love is in the Air" SVG Set by Cocoa Studio. It's just $4.50 for 7 great valentine themed svgs! I was given the kit to test out and here is what I've made so far!

As for the cute little word art, you can download it here.
I used this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.
