Take a look at these darling creations by Shelly Smarzik

She used the Valentine's Day/Cupcake Box tutorial to make a Get Well Wishes Box and a Camping Survival Kit.

"I just wanted to share with you what I did with the Valentines Box Tutorial I purchased from you. I made it into a Get Well Wishes Box. Band-aids, tissues and of course some chocolate! This is what my stamp till you cramp girls will be doing this Saturday. I love your projects and visit your sight every day! Thanks for all your hard work. It makes it so much easier on the rest of us!"

"The second box I did is a Camping Survival Kit! I had so much fun making this box. Now every time I go to the Dollar Tree, I look at things and say... ohhhhh that would be cute in a divided box gift. lol Anyway, what is in this box is: graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate bars and the thing with the mosquito is a packet of baby wipes to clean up afterwards! Soooo fun!"


JazzyStamper gave me this award. Thank you Jasmine. Check out her blog in Perth Western Australia.

Some good stuff going on in the world!! These next few pictures are just a sneak peek of the beautiful Becky's Tote-ally Awesome Tote made by Sarah Bonsell at Card Oasis. Sarah is in Manfield, United Kingdom. check out her blog to see the rest of the pictures. It's darling!

Sarah also awarded me the Brilliante Weblog Premio Award which I can't get to upload for anything today! Thank you Sarah!!

This week I will be doing a mini tutorial showing the steps I use to achieve the water coloring look I used in the cards of my Tote-ally Awesome tote. I explained it a bit in the tutorial but have had lots of questions.
Also a mini tutorial on the Big Shot purse I posted earlier is coming this week.
I hear ya...I'm coming...thank you for all your interest and questions and suggestions, I love it!
