A few projects

I have a few projects to share today.

First up, I made some Valentine treat bags to hand out to my kids 
in my Sunday School group.
I used some Doodlebug kraft polkadot bags, which I filled with some candies.
Then, I cut a 2x8.5" strip of white card stock to wrap around each bag.

I stamped the cookies from Wplus9's Milk & Cookies and masked it to stamp
the jar & straw.
I die cut the banners using Reverse Confetti's Tag Me banner die in pure poppy card stock.
Then I stamped a sentiment from Milk & Cookies and the "happy valentine's day" from 
Reverse Confetti's Crushin' in versa mark and heat embossed them in white.

I'm linking these up to the Wplus9 Birthday Celebration: Week 1 Challenge
which is "Comfort Zone", because I used my favourite style ("pretty CAS") and  
one of my favourite things: patterned paper.

I'm also linking it up to Fusion #3.

I also have a layout to share that I made for this month's Pages With Papertrey Challenge, 
which is to include a heart on a layout, without using pink or red.

Here's my layout:

I used some Fancy Pants patterned paper (yellow) & some Studio Calico PL cards.

I typed my journaling on my typewriter.
I used my Bubble Talk dies to die cut another SC PL card. 
Then I die cut it again with some Ocean Tides card stock and layered it underneath for this week's 
I'm also linking this up to this week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Have a Heart.

For my title, I die cut "Furry Friends" with my Mama Elephant Inline alphabet dies using
Ocean Tides cardstock.
I stamped the arrow from Reverse Confetti's Crushin'
and the sentiment from PTI's Wonderful Words Additions.

If you play along with the Pages With Papertrey Challenge, please share
a link to your layout here in the comments on my blog or here on the PTI forum. Thanks!

Now, I have one more project to share before I go.
It's a card I made for the PTI 7th Anniversary, Day 1 Challenge, which is to used one of the 7 sketches on Nichole's blog and pair it with one of the 7 colour combos she's posted.

For my card, I chose this sketch:

And I paired it with this colour combo:

Here's my card:

I decided to switch the sketch from horizontal to vertical & to use my Sweet Life stamp set.
I stamped my leaves on the white card stock background and then ran it through my Big Shot
with my woodgrain impression plate.
I die cut the flowers and then stamped them with aqua mist (stamped off), then aqua mist (full strength) and then hawaiian shores.
The sentiment is from Think Big Favourites #12.

Thanks for looking!
