Valentine’s Gift Bag


Hi Again!!

I’m back with the gift bag I didn’t have photos of yesterday….so sorry about that!! 

This is the gift sack I made for my daughter’s teacher.  As you can see, it’s another super simple project, but I think it turned out really cute!  :-)

Here are shots of a few different angles of the bag. 


Here’s a straight on shot of the bag.  I started with a plain white paper lunch sack and cut about 1/4” off the top to get rid of the jagged edges of the bag.  I punched the top of the bag (while still in the folded position) to get the heart border.  When I did this, I had NO IDEA how it would look on the finished project, but it turned out great!  The punch works perfectly with this bag and makes a cute decorative edge for the bag with very minimal work involved!  ;-)

I used the Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge to create the hearts.  I cut the black scalloped and white hearts at 1.75” on the border feature.  I used the same Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and inked the edges of the bag and the white hearts.  I stamped “Happy Valentine’s Day” using the SSD Label Accents and Black Soot Distress Ink.

Thanks for stopping by!  See ya again soon……

Valentine’s Day “cards”


Here is a quick Valentine’s Day project I created and wanted to share with you, my valued blog followers! 

These were so SUPER easy to make, but my kiddo loves them!  That’s the important thing, right?

Here is a photo of all of the ones I made.  We made one for the teacher and I snuck an extra in there to my sweet girl, from me.  She has no idea and won’t until she starts distributing them in class.  :-)

Here is a short video showing how I made these.  They’re seriously………SUPER simple! 

I made a gift bag out of a paper lunch sack too, but seems I didn’t upload the pics to my computer after I took them.  *sigh*  I will upload those in another post once I get them onto my computer…..  :-)

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!!

Scrappy Frogs – Die Cuts


Hello there!

I hope this finds you having a happy Monday!  It’s a little chilly in central Texas…..well, chilly to a Texas girl.  It’s probably a heat wave to those of you that experienced all the snow over the weekend.  You know what I have to say about that?  MOVE!!!!  LOL

Anywho, it’s time for a new challenge at Scrappy Frogs.  The theme for the month is DIE CUTS!  How super easy!  I made this card at a recent Stampin Up function and decided I’d use it, since it’s almost Valentine’s Day!  :-)

Good news……

Hi Friends!

You may recall THIS POST from the end of December, where I mentioned that I was applying for the Scrapbook Pal design team.  The entries were being accepted until Jan 23 and I, honestly, didn’t think I had a snowball’s chance in……….well, you know!  ;-)

Well, guess what?  I received an email yesterday afternoon congratulating me on being selected for their team.  Ah I excited?  Heck yeah!  Pinching myself to see if I’m dreaming?  You bet!  LOL

My new teammates and I have been chatting behind the scenes already and everyone is SO nice!  I’m really looking forward to working with Scrapbook Pal and creating with their super cute products!!! 

Have you shopped Scrapbook Pal before?  No?  Well, you’re missing out!  They have TONS to choose from, their prices are great and their free shipping amount is pretty low too!  Here are just a few of my favorites!! 

OH MY!!!  he he!  :-)

I ordered a few stamp sets from Pink by Design and I’m ANXIOUS to get them!  The ideas are flowing and I can’t wait to plaaaaaayyyyyy!! 

Anyway, that’s all for today!  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you’ll come back for a visit again soon. 



PS – if you’re in the central Texas area and you’re interested in classes, please be sure to keep an eye on my “upcoming classes” page.
