WELCOME to my very first posting on my brand spankin' new Blog! This should be fun...I'm looking forward to sharing lots of fun projects and ideas. So...here we go!!!

I'm still learning about how this whole blog thing works, so this site is very much "under construction", so don't forget your hardhat = ) !

Aren't these little boxes just the cutest things ever? I got this fun little stamp set this week, "Merry & Bright" & it's my new favorite...it's absolutely adorable! I made these as a thank you gift for a workshop hostess this week. They actually stack right up on top of each other (that's why there's a little extra stretchy silver cord going around the little one, it actually holds them all together). The largest one is 3 1/2" square and is filled with 3" coordinating mini notes. The medium is 3" square and is filled with coordinating gift tags and the smallest is filled with hershey's nuggets wrapped in the same designer papers. I used the Designer Papers from Winter Bright Scrapbook Kit along with the textured cardstock. The colors in that kit are so fun together...pretty in pink, bashful blue, real red & wild wasabi. And, I added a little dazzling diamonds on all 3 images....I just love that stuff, it's easy to apply & really adds a spectacular little shimmer & shine!! = )

Paper: Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Shimmery White. DP from the Winter Bright Scrapbook kit

Ink: Basic Black & Wild Wasabi Stamp pads, Real Red Marker

Stamps: Merry & Bright (from the holiday mini)

Accessories: Scallop, 1 1/4 & 1 3/8" circle punches, paper piercing tool, silver & rhinestone brads, dazzling diamonds glitter with 2-way glue pen, silver cord ,dimensionals
