Love Bandit

I recently saw this crazy adorable little raccoon Valentine's treat holder on Pinterest, and had to try it.  It is one of the projects we're making at my Stampers' Hostess Club that starts tomorrow.  There are a few spots still available in my hostess clubs -- check out all the details here.

The original designer of this adorable treat holder, also made a fox and wolf one -- incredibly cute!  She has a printable pdf with all the instructions of how to re-create this here.

My seven year old saw this and was convinced that I need to make 20 of them for his classmates....  Not sure I'm quite up to that.  They're quite a bit of work to cut out and assemble, but surely are the cutest little treat holders ever!

Happy crafty Saturday to each of you!  If you haven't seen the new Spring catalog yet, click on the pdf above to check it out.  Lots of fun new products to try out!

First Steps

In honor of a goal to accomplish dozens of gorgeous scrap book pages in 2013, :) I'll start with this one I created today!  And, I thought the title was particularly fitting to a new year and new beginnings...

Sabina had this darling little black dress with white daisies on it, and it happened to be the one she was wearing the day she really started walking.  The dress seemed like the perfect theme for a scrap layout using the retired SU flower Bigz die -- which I purchased just to make these pages!  Yep, crazy, I know...but doesn't it look so darn cute with the dress in these photos???!!! To make the page just a little sweeter, my crafty friend had a little flower punch that was the perfect smaller twin to my Bigz die.  Perfect!

Not too much on these layouts is current SU product, except for the card stock, but it turned out so HAPPY that I just had to share!

I hope you have a great crafty start to 2013 -- and get out each and every one of those products you purchased for a project long ago, and USE them! :)
