Happy Leap Day!

So this extra day has got me all confused….one extra day this month/year and I'm messed up! Anyway – you'll see a familiar post tomorrow if you stopped by earlier today…

Happy Leap Day to all of you – have you "leapt" into digital crafting yet?

Quick Valentine’s Treat Box

Box-closedThis box is so cute – and it's the perfect size for a sweet treat for your Valentine.  I used the Big Shot and the Bitty Box and Envelope Bigz XL Die.  The heart uses the full heart punch and Red Glimmer Paper. On the Whisper White cardstock I used the heart strip from the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  The sentiment is from the Sale-a-Bration set Outlined Occasions, and you can select this as a free item with every $60 merchandise order.

I loved how easy this was to create!

Here's the inside of the box:



I used the Small Heart punch with the Red Glimmer paper; stamp is from the same set, and I coloured it in using my blender pen, picking up Cherry Cobbler ink from the inside of the ink pad lid. I like using the blender pen for tone on tone colouring because the shade matches but you can still see the outlined image.  Two Ghirardelli chocolate squares fit perfectly inside. A sweet treat!

Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
