I didn’t use a jar for this because there is so many possibilities. I was really stuck on getting a stuffed vampire for it but that didn’t happen! It’s a very cute tote and you could make for any occasion! I did forget to cut out the tag cause I was going to use one of my own, but that will be next so here we are for now.. this is my inspiration for the contest!

Well if you do, I have something for you! My daughter’s teacher is moving away and I wanted to make her something. So I thought it would be cute to make a bunch of tags that her students can either sign, draw on like color code pink for bedroom yellow for kitchen, or whatever she like and use them for moving tags. Sounds a bit silly to be to put a tag on a box but I couldn’t resist since I know that the memorabilia will be there in the end for her students here at this school.
Once I made the tags I had to have something to put them in right? I saw this valentine tool box in the sillouttee store, I just took off the hearts and made it a tool box. Using a thick card stock from DCWV Type Art, I cut it out and put this beautiful mesh ribbon around it. Then when I started to put the handle on it wouldn’t stay so I put some jute wine ribbon on the ends
then a little twine put on her labeled tag from Abigail.
She loved her teacher alot and has been a very good influence on her this past year. I was happy to make her something besides another thank you card. I thought the mesh ribbon really topped off this project. It really perked up my spirits to show off this new project!

Because Thursday nights I get to craft! Better yet, if I can make another 8 hours tomorrow, I will be on the weekend like nobody’s business! So I just made a simple Thank You Card just for fun. I absolutely LOVE this DCWV the Bella Armoire stack. It’s a bit of a close up but I took the picture with my iPhone and had to crop in…
I was going through my inspiration folder and thought I had made one like this before, they all look the same to me after awhile because I don’t venture out much from the sentiment and a ribbon but I liked it. As as I was going through the stack they had a page of 6×6 squares, I cut them down to 3 x 5.25 (well the bottom pattern was a full sheet but that is the measurement for each pattern paper.) I thought I had a light pink ribbon on hand but didn’t so I used the cream color ribbon. Printed sentiment and wala done. The base is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. The layer of ribbon going across is doubled so you can’t see through then a bow pop dotted on where every I liked. I wish I knew who to give credit to but unfortunatly it was just a saved image for inspiration without a signature.
Wait! There is more news! I do not have the Scrapbook Stamp Society winner yet to announce but I do have my blog candy winner to announce.
Drum roll please….
That would be

Have a great weekend… Coming Sunday I am in the “Be Mine” Valentine hop so be sure to be there!
I was so excited about the vinyl hop I was already doing another vinyl project by the end of the night. I was at the store and saw this cup that screamed at me, ViNYL ME, ViNYL me! So I came home and was in Photoshop I knew it had to have hearts on it and something frilly. So I threw something together and wala… but wait, if it is a cone shape it can’t be straight. So I sent it to my friend Pam all the way across the country and said Pam I need help! My design needs to be warped to fit my cup! She (as always) was happy to help me out and then sent the image back and that evening I was a happy camper with my new custom designed cup. She say’s, “I have that cup” So I told her to make one too so she can think of me every time she uses it, of course she called me a dork! But hey… I am what I am! lol
So here it is… I am so excited. Showing the front rolling it around to the back. I just love it. The cup just seems to be kind of our thing. Although she did encourage me to put it up on my Etsy store, so I have listed it there too for Valentines day! Hope you love them enough to grab one up. If you buy two you get 10% off!
Visit me at my very itsty bitsy Etsy Shop and buy one today!
head on over to check out Pam’s Cup on her Blog too!
