Spring Time Fun!

I've been busy working on a few projects these past few weeks. It took a while for me to get my new workspace set up and organized. I'll post pics as soon as I get it clean again.

Valentines Day is getting close and I just finished putting together
Zachary's classroom valentines. I have to stuff them with goodies but they are finished. I used a craf
t envelope to make a pouch then aded the paper twine and robot. I love the "Best Bots Forever" set. to make the background I simply placed all of the robot body parts one one large acrylic block and created my own background stamp. Love the new cling mount stamps! I also made a V-Day card on the fly by request. One of Zaldy's cousin
s needed one for her beau. I hope he likes it (pink robot card). Th
e small box was made with the new "First Edition" paper in the Occasions Mini, "News Print" paper in t
he Idea book and Catalog, Rose superfine glitter and rose seam binding, also in the occasions mini. i found the flowers and floral supplies at the local craft store. It was fashioned after some boxes that I made at a class that I took at a local craft store. It was such a blast. The ones that we made in the class were a little simpler. What took this one longer was the 3D hear on top that I sculpted from styrofoam
and then deco-podged the "First Ed
ition" paper onto. The seam binding ribbon and crepe paper were gathered using my sewin
g machine. "Sew" easy.
The new Minis have so
many wonderful product I cannot wait to use them all.

I also had fume making a b
ox that looks like a cupcake from the new "Ice Cream Parlor" DSP and buttons both av
ailable in the "Sale-A-Bration" mini. I gathered the Satin ribbon just like on the other box and hot glued it to half of a styrofoam ball. Add a few "sprinkle" buttons and a candle and it looks too good to eat.
The bird cage is a project that I had been wanting to do for a while. I have had the little fairy figurine for a while and have always anted to make a home for him. One day I was at Micheal's and they had everything I needed to bring that picture in my mind to life. Now I have something prety to look at while I work. He sleeps on my desk and makes me smile every time I see him.

Here's looking forward to spring.
