Birthday Invites.

I was asked recently to make some Birthday Invites for a soon to be three year old's birthday party, using a train theme.  Thanks to Stampin Up!  I had a perfect idea and the best colors to pick from.  (I think it may be time to become a demonstrator again).

Didn't those  turn out cute!  I'm so excited about these.  Stay tuned, I am working on a birthday banner now, for the same soon to be birthday boy.  I have some great ideas rolling around in my head.  We'll see if they work out on paper.

Valentines Decor

Wowzers!  I'm never gonna be on top of my posting like I'd planned.  Life just gets too crazy busy.  I've got several things to post all at once, so here we go.

I made these adorable valentine's cards for one of my card swaps.

Aren't these the cutest?!  I found the tutorial on You tube.  You can find it here.  I love, love, love Dawn!  She does a fabulous job with her tutorials and makes it so easy to follow her.  

Next, I finally made it to the Wood Connection.  It's been too long since I've been, so I was like an addict in the candy store.  I finished one of my projects, but still have another one I am working on.  
 I've just noticed that jar on the left is empty.  It did have Valentines M&M's in it, but obviously the kiddo's have raided the stash.
I love how the glittery heart turned out.  This entire project was so simple.  I used some of my Stampin Up! stash.  I loved, loved, loved, this paper when I first bought it.  I loved it so much I haven't wanted to use it for anything.  (Heaven forbid I run out of it.)   This project was perfect for it.  I can display it year after year, and see my paper.  :) 

Next, I made these super simple candles.  I should say heated these candles.  I love the simplicity of this project so much that I am planning on having candles to trade out for each holiday.  I had Halloween ones that I'm pretty sure I posted on here, and somehow didn't get around to making Christmas ones.  What do you think?  Cute right.

If your interested in this project let me know.  Or you can google the technique I'm sure.  Have a great Valentine's Day!
