Fun Flowers, Part 1

Hi Stampers! I had a fabulous time at Stampin' Up's! Vancouver Regional Convention yesterday. The event totally exceeded my expectations; the presentations were excellent, the make n' takes were the best ever, the swaps were top notch, and we were even treated to a 3pm snack of cupcakes! Stampin' Up! treats its demonstrators so well, and I feel lucky to be a part of such a great company.

On to the card; today's card uses the new Fun Flowers die, available in the Occasions Mini Catalogue. It's a Bigz L Die, and offers great value as you get three big, beautiful flowers and two centres from one die. I cased this card from Mary Fish, and she has a video on her blog to show how easy it is to add dimension and a wow factor to your projects with these flowers.

Check back soon for another card using these Fun Flowers!

Valentine's Treats

I'm just getting around to posting this now, but I thought I'd share with you some little Valentine treats I made for a staff luncheon we had at school. These little milk cartons were fun to make and share, and with the help of the Big Shot, easy to mass produce. I filled each of them with five dark chocolates; I love the size of these little chocolate rectangles from Costco. They nestled in those mini milk cartons perfectly!

Thanks for stopping by!
