DT Day w/Connie Can Crop

Hi Everyone! It's my turn to post over at Connie Can Crop's blog! Today I want to share a cute card I made using a file from Paper Crafting World, our sponsor this month! I'm going to be honest, I'm not a very good paper piecer (is that a thing?!). I usually go the print/cut route to save me some time! But I pieced this little bear together to try it out. About an hour later (does it always take that long!??), shes finished! Shes adorable too ;) 



Supplies Used~ 
Jaded Blossom Birthday Treat Tags
Jaded Blossom Luggage Tag Dies
Stickles Fruit Punch color
All cardstock is from my recycled stash. 
I have to use it up! The bin is over taking my area!
American Craft Ribbon

To go along with Connie's monthly challenge, I made most of my card using scraps. I used this cute egg/duck teddy bear that I had from the SIL store and popped him on an action wobble. I had some leftover rumple ribbon I tied in the middle. The tag and sentiment is from Jaded Blossom and the background paper is some leftover Christmas paper! And I have a few random purple gems left that I keep trying to use up! HAHA!

Monthly Challenge #56 ~ Reduce Reuse Recycle


Its time for another challenge with Connie! Her theme this month is reduce, reuse, recycle. Find anything in your house & reuse it! 

I used an old jam jar for mine for this project. We get the yummiest jam from our local farmers market and the jars are great! I can't throw them out!



I used a bear bunny image from the silhouette store and put some stickles on him for a little extra sparkle. my rumple ribbon bow on the top and Jaded Blossom to the rescue for my stamp sentiment and die. I wanted to fill the jar with jelly beans, and I went out 3 times for them and kept forgetting! So, I filled my beary bunny with gummy bears! (which are my favorite anyway!) 

I can't wait to see what you all create! This is such a fun challenge with all the endless possibilities!

Valentine's Day Treats

It's that time of the year again....Time to make my Valentine's Day treats! I only have 1 left in elementary school so I have to savor it! My middle school-ers did ask me to make something for each teacher though....how can I say no to that?! 




                 

I created all of these using Print/Cut with my silhouette. After I cut them out, I did add a solid back to them just to make the little guys more sturdy. 

Aidens class will get 20 of the racoon's and his teacher gets that cute little owl! 
Jayce & Logan each get the cows for all their teachers (6 teachers each)
Jayce has been "dating" the cutest girl for a year now! He is taking her to the movies for Valentines Day and will give her the lion treat bag! 

Supplies Used ~ 
Jaded Blossom Flag Dies
Jaded Blossom Panel Dies
Jaded Blossom Got Candy

I am entering my treat bags in the following challenge:
