You Make My Heart Flutter!

Happy Australia Day to all my Aussie readers!!!!!!!

It's time for yet another challenge with my CCEE Stamper friends!
This week our challenge was a supply challenge with Cindy Motherway sending us the supplies for our project.

Cindy sent us the following:
  • 2 different designer papers (red & pink)
  • 2 different ribbons (red & pink)
  • 1 heart brad
  • 1 heart button
  • 1 sentiment
  • paper bag
  • sheet of red heart stickers
The instructions that Cindy included with the supplies were:
  • you must use the white bag and the sentiment ... we had to be careful not to mess up, cause Cindy only included the one sentiment!
  • you must use one of the papers. You must fill it with something fun and you must give it to your hubby for Valentines Day.
  • We could use anything else we wanted ... we didn't have to use it all.
I decided to use the pink designer paper for my project and seeing how much I love owls ... I decided to use the these High Hopes owls for my goodie bag. You can see I used the white bag ... just in case Cindy comes checking ;) . I did cut my bag down a little so that it would work with the designer paper we were given. And I used the pink ribbon just to be on the safe side hehe!

I had some of the pink designer paper over after cutting it down to create my goodie bag so I decided to make a scrapling ... my scrapling is approx 2 1/4 inches wide. As I had to use the sentiment Cindy included and I couldn't get it all to fit on my goodie bag ... I decided to use it on my scrapling instead. Here you can see the inside of my scrapling too with the remainder of the sentiment ... and the heart brad too!

Now as for the part about MUST give it to my hubby .... we will see ... my hubby doesn't believe in Valentines Day so I probably won't.

Frances, These are adorable! Haven't commented lately, but not because I didn't enjoy what you posted--just too rushed! I so appreciate that you let us know what you used and "how" you used it. I don't often have the stamps you used, but I'm able to visualize "my stamps" in their place. Thanks so much!
