I don't know if you can see it or not, but I reversed each pinwheel so you could see how different each one looks.

So I got a little creative today, FINALLY!!!!

Did NOT CASE this from anyone, it actually came out of my own brain!  Created by Mo & Jo!!

As always, click on the picture to make it bigger!!

I must admit, there is a technique to adding a brad to these guys, but after a while you figure it out.

Also the two pinwheels are made using the same DSP piece of paper, but I reversed one, hence the different patterns.

Here is the recipe:
Stamp Set:  Wishes Your Way
Cardstock:  Retired DSP Love Impressions, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink:  Real Red
Accessories:  Adorning Accents Folders (embossing), Sizzlits S Die-Pinwheel, Heart Shaped Brads (non SU), big fat glue dots cut in half to adhere to the back of the pinwheels.

Yes, I went a little Valentine crazy yesterday because I was going to see my grandkids and wanted to give them a treat, hence the 3 posts of Valentine Holders.

Again, I used retired DSP but since it's for the grandkids, they don't care!  I made this for the oldest grandaughter who just turned 5!  She loved it!  Yay!

I used the big heart punch, red glimmer paper, retired DSP and the Bigz Petite Purse die.  Fun and easy! 


I first found this idea on a blog from someone in Germany, so I had to translate it and redo the calculations from metric to inches.  BUT one day on Pinterest I found a tutorial in English by Dawn Tidd!!  Yay!!  Here is the link to her tutorial.

I printed the tutorial (not a video) and viola!, here is what I made.  I had fun making these!

 Don't forget you can click on these pictures to make them bigger.

Yes, the first one is retired DSP from last year, but when making these for the grandkids, they don't care!

I used the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Adorning Accents (the heart one)

A Hershey nugget would fit just right in the bottom!!
I wanted the red one on the right to have some DSP on the top, so I punch it out and put adhesive on it to give it a little more color.

Stamp:  Hostess Mixed Medley, Pretty Postage
Ink:  Real Red
Accessories:  Postage Stamp Punch, 1 1/4" scalloped circle punch, 3/4" circle punch, and for the top of them I used the Fancy Flower punch.  Make sure to pay attention to the tutorial to see how to punch it.


I cased this Two Tag treat holder from 
 Angie Juda aka Chic' n Scratch!  

Here is the link for her video tutorial.

I used retired DSP from last year, but since it was for my grandkids, they don't care if it's retired or not!

I attached little snack boxes of raisins inside.  

Click on the pictures to make them larger.


Stamps sets:  Pretty Postage (24-7), Hostess Mixed Medley
Ink:  Real Red
Accessories:  3/4" circle punch, 1 1/4" scalloped circle punch, Real Red grosgrain ribbon, sticky strip!!
