Just For You Owl

I made this little box for Valentine's Day but I think it could be used for any occasion and can definitely be changed up for any holiday. I got the idea over at Angie Juda's blog. I get so many cute ideas from her. Hope you are having a great President's Day!

This is a cute little box that was inspired by Angie Juda. I used the new Petal Cone Die on page 15 in the Occasions Mini. This is such a versatile die! Tomorrow I will show another project you can make with this gem of a die. I also used the new Eat Chocolate stamp set (pg 30 of the Occasions Mini). I love chocolate so this is a great set for me! Let me know if you have any questions at all!

Inlaid Embossing Technique

I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted. Life has definitely been busy. Today I am showing a card we made at my Hostess Club. I made it using the Inlaid Embossing Technique and it is based on a card I saw on Chris Kolly's blog. I pretty much copied her card but changed the sentiment. It is a very easy technique and I would like to try it with different punches and stamps.

To make the card, I punched all of my hearts out and glued them down on Whisper White cardstock. Then I ran it through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing folder. It is a really neat technique and I hope you will give it a try! Let me know if you have any questions!
