Lots of "For You" cards today for you! =)
The next card kit at Create My Keepsake will be available soon for all you card kit members. You'll be getting an e-mail with the link to purchase this kit either today or tomorrow, so be on the lookout! If you are not a member, you can click HERE to become a member. (Any questions, just send me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) Here is a picture of the yummy kit with new Making Memories - Love Notes and lots of extras!
Below are the 4 cards that I created with the kit. All of the supplies and instructions will be in the kit to create these, plus one altered item! (And I had a lot of supplies left, so you can do many cards or layouts too!)
This is the altered item I was telling you about that was also made with the kit. There are two patterns in the kit by the sweet Regina Easter, a Valentine bag that you see here (I printed it onto red cardstock) and the circle stamp that you see here also. They will be available for free download when you buy the kit.
I made these fun lollipops to tuck inside the bag. The lollipop supplies are NOT in the kit, but I thought I'd share with you how they are made, they are really easy and fun. You can buy all of the supplies at a craft store such as AC Moore. Put sticks into the tray and melt some white Almond Bark in a double boiler (water in the bottom pan and candy melting in the top pan). Pour melted Almond Bark into hearts in the tray. Gently tap the tray on the counter to even out the Almond Bark and get any bubbles out that may be in there. Then I put these in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes, because I am impatient and want to do another batch quickly! Gently pull them out of the tray when hard, wrap with cellophane and tie with a ribbon or twine. I love to make these for the kids in Taylor's class!
This next card is for the next challenge at Cardalicious! The challenge this week is to create a "For You" card using the color green and letter stickers. I used a bunch of Sweet Cakes here by Pink Paislee and some Making Memories, Hullabaloo. The ribbon is Making Memories, Paperie. Gem is from Walmart, blue lace cardstock is KI Memories and birthday rub on is Melissa Frances.(Will be in Paper Crafts, Card Idea Book, Oct. 2009)
Be sure to stop over at the Dream Street blog where they are beginning their peeks to the new lines coming out at CHA! I am excited that there will be rub ons with each new line!!
And a quick shout out to a few people who have awarded me a blog award recently...I'm so bad at remembering these, so I'm terribly sorry if I've missed anyone. I thank you soooo very much for reading my blog and for all your sweet comments!! Thank you to Peggy Sue from Denmark, Odette, Hilary and Nancy for the kind awards!
