Inchie swap - from Cricut MB

Well - I jumped on the inchie craze. You say ... you haven't heard. Google and you'll get cool info. Anyway - it's a little image - about an inch in square and you scene it up - like a mini SB page - or at least that is how I envision it.
On the MB at a member wanted to do a swap with tags and inchies.

Here is my submission - we had to make 20 and our theme was "wings" anyway we wanted to interpret it.

I used card stock for the base of the tag from The Paper Company (nice thick CS) (I cut mine to 3 1/2" x 2"), I inked the edges with chestnut Roan ColorBox ink calk pad.

Diecut the angel wings/heart from Sizzix. Love it! Got it in the clearance bin at ACM. Inked the edges with yellow.

Now for the inchie.... multiple layers here.... first layer on the bottom - 1 1/4 inch sqaure of yellow/green pp and crimped it - fun! Then punch a 1" blue square (CM punch) and placed that on top. Using the Friskar border unch - I cut the diamond border in green cs and glued that down. added a little paper blossom (bought from Oriental Trading).
Lastly I used the phrase "wish" from Stampin'Up

FUN FUN FUN - wish I signed up for another theme but..... will be going on vacation and need to get things in order.

Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Challenge 3 repost

So - I do not know what I was thinking last night, other than I loved Maria Bell's card challenge layout and I was staring at the gorgeous paper which lead me to spring - which led me to the bunny card made below.
As I was reading Maria's post of fellow submissions - it hit me - oh duh! I was suppose to do a Christmas theme - duh!
so - here is my entry - whew!

The cute elf is from studio G 2008 series 21. The three bow brads from... not sure as I have them in a bin....the little clip is from making memories. Patern paper from HOTP

State Swap organized by Molly CB MB

Well I finished!
52 of us - well some did more than one ... we all picked a state or two, the cover and the back to make this State Quarter swap and album.
The States cartridge was used. I did not have the cart so Molly did the cuts for me and mailed them to me a few weeks ago. I glued and glued and now I am done.

For You sweetheart treats

I designed this little folded piece of paper to fit perfectly around these Necco treats.
Cut a 12 x 12 paper to get four 8 x 4 pieces of paper (you will have a 4 x 4 piece left over)
Score at 2 3/4", 3", 6" and then again at 6 1//4"
Fold up the larger area and use eyelets to keep sides closed.
Fold down top and embellish as you like.
I used a foam dot to keep the top flap down.
Embellishments: Yellow square piece of CS cut and CB through a folder. "For you" cut at 1 1/2" from the Cricut Wild Card Cartridge - cute little blue hearts also cut from WC cart.
