Love You Scrapbook Page

I am trying to get caught up on all the projects I have made so far this year.  Tonight I took a ton of photos and cropped them.  The first project I want to share was my first scrapbook page of the year. I am not a scrapbooker really, but once a month with my demo we do 3 projects and one is usually a scrapbook page.  Too much time has gone by for me to remember the names of the specialty papers used.  I love the chipboard letters on this-it is so cute.  We didn't do anything special to them except pop them out!  How easy is that?

VC Rocks Blog Hop with Chocolate

What can be better than a great blog hop plus chocolate?  Not much if you ask me.  This is my first time participating in a blog hop so I am very excited. VC Rocks is the best Yahoo group ever because everyone is so friendly and a little crazy too.  It is like a big pajama party all summer long!

 My project features one of my favorite colors that Stampin Up! is retiring--Pink Passion.  I just love pink.  So here is the final project.

The first two  item needed is a bag of Hershey's Nuggets chocolates and address labels measuring 1"x2 5/8"which were purchased at my local dollar store.

The supplies from Stamping Up are : a Big Shot,  Matchbox XL die cut, Matchbox Messages and Great Friends stamp sets, clear window sheets, Pink Passion card stock, Pink Passion  and black Stazon inks, and red sticky tape.

Stamp four address labels with flower from Great Friend using Pink Passion ink.  Then stamp the verse onto the labels as well using black Stazon ink.

With the Big Shot and the Matchbox die, but the bottom of the box out of Pink Passion card stock and the cover out of a clear window sheet.  Assemble the bottom of the box according to the directions.

While the cover is still flat, stamp it using the flower frame from the Matchbox Messages stamp set using black Stazon ink. Let the ink dry completely before assembling the top according to directions and using the red sticky tape.

Fill your box with the four chocolates, slide the cover onto the box and you a have a quick and cute gift for a special friend in your life.

So hopefully you enjoyed Artful Sentiments by Kimm at , my blog and now please rock your way over to Shari's Stamp Pad at  .

A Little Of This, A Little Of That...

It has been a while since I have posted; but now I have to really organize my time.  VC Rocks! has started up again.  It is my favorite Yahoo group and it is only from May to August. We have more fun in those few months than most do all year long.  The best Virtual Convention going and you don't even have to be a SU demo to join to reap all the rewards of this place.  We have a hotel with four floors and every room has the best view, we have pool boys to wait on us hand and foot.

Any how, I have to get organized for the May swaps I am joining. I actually have one done!  I have another to complete and then I will go from there; maybe I will do 3-4.  I have worked on a project for a blog hop (the first time I will have ever participated in one) I have the photos taken-now I just have to get it ready for the net.
