Thinking of You

Just a few little things to share with you today. The first thing I'd like to share with you is a little thinking of you card..... I used a DCWV little stack for the papers, my new Hero Arts stamps (sentiment and chair) and some KaiserCraft bling. And I also see some little thank you tags, also using some Hero Arts stamps.
I made these tags using Papertrey Inks tag die cut.

Thanks for looking today!

Spring exchange projects

My friend's Di, Erica and I did a Spring Project swap and we had a lot of fun with it. Today I'll show you what I made for them and what they made for me. First's what I made for Erica. She loves everything girlie and feminine so I tried keeping that in mind when I made this project. I used wooden craft sticks (shorter than paint stir sticks) for this project and I added little embellishments here and there.

For Di's project, I used more earthy colors since that is what she tends to like the best. (Iknow, there's still pink in there, but it isn't bright! haha)
Now my two swap partners couldn't be more talented. Here's what Di made for me and Erica:

This canvas is so pretty and feminine. Thank you Di! And thank you Erica for the pictures of Di's projects and the ones you did. Your photos are so much better than mine!

Erica made this gorgeous little treasure box!

Inside was a lovely double sided pendant which I treasure.

Thank you girls for such a fun swap! I look forward to more in the future!

For even more pics of these projects, check out the post I did for The Scrappy Tree today.

Both cards used Crate Paper (Emma's Shoppe) papers, EK Success border punch, vintage lace and buttons, Papertrey Ink stamp, silver leaves, kraft cardstock.

Using the Kissing Technique

I have to admit that I love watching Youtube videos! Since I have been unable to get up in my craft room the past few nights, I'd like to share something I was watching yesterday.

Hero Arts has some great videos on various stamping techniques and this one is on Kissing! Try it today if you get a chance! It's a great look!
