Be Mine Cookie Wrapper

I love taking treats and making fun wrappers for them. I bought a box of multi-cookie packages and took this Nutter Butter package along with some Pink Paislee paper and made the cutest wrapper for it.
I cut my strips and used my EK Scallop Border Punch to do a decorative strip. I first bent the paper around the cookie package to get where it needed to be creased, then with my Martha Stewart scoreboard I creased my lines.
I added a wing sticker along with an airmail sticker from the Pink Paislee Valentine sticker sheet. I added an Epoxy Bubble Cap from Epiphany and a Crown Charm from Tim Holtz that I tied to the cookie package with brown twine. Don't forget the red gemstones. I know you will want to do cookies, candy bars and other fabulous treats. Enjoy. Hugs Pammejo

Sillouhette Project 2 - Valentine Crush Card

Here is my second project using my Cameo, oh how I am falling head over heals in love with it LOL. I used Bo Bunny Crush and Memory Box paper for my card. I also used a Thinking of You rub ons by Pebbles, little ric rac and some bling always brings a project together. My large Valentine I fussy cut from a piece of the Crush paper. I love to fussy cut it is so relaxing.
This is the best part of the Cameo -my heart background was part of the library that came with the Cameo. I made it to fit my A2 card so I programed it to 4 1/4 x 5, though it was just a bit short of the 5 inches, still learning, but it turned out well since I was going to add the bottom piece of paper to the card anyway. The clean, detailed cut is just amazing. I wish you could see how narrow the line work is in the piece, it is simply amazing. I hope you enjoy my project and if you have a Cricut I know there is some fabulous backgrounds on some of the cartridges, I have a Cricut also. Hugs Pammejo

My First Cameo Valentine Project!!! Candy Bag

My first project on my Silhouette Cameo is a candy bag. I used some Bo Bunny Valentine paper that I had. The Valentine image is in the library of the Cameo, what makes it so fabulous is you can make it any size you want it to be, that is as long as it will fit on your paper. (I know I plan to use just the front of it as a card.)
I had to navigate a square on my computer to the front of the bag on the Silhouette Cameo to make a window so you could see into the bag. I placed a piece of acetate inside the bag so my candies would fall out.

I added some of the black heart paper from Bo Bunny behind the large heart at the top to give my bag some depth, along with framing out the window and placing paper behind the small hearts at the bottom of the bag. I added some ribbon that I purchased from my local craft store and of course had to add a Epiphany Heart Charm with some black twine to the top of the box.
As you can see I am super excited about my Cameo and can't wait to make my next project on it. There is so much to learn about it but I know it will be so convenient for me when I travel just to take it along and design on it. Thanks for coming by today and if you want let me know why you would love to have a Cameo. Hugs Pammejo

Love Struck Valentine Cards - Fast and Easy!!!

If you are looking for some fast and easy cards to make -you can't fail using the We R Memory Keepers Love Struck Collection. Just a couple of pieces of paper and you can make several beautiful cards. I love the bright colors of the collection. I made two to share with you today but if you jump down to my post on Jan 14th you will see some mini's and a container that I made using the same paper collection.
If you are a regular visitor to my blog you know how much I love making these flowers. I can't help myself I just love making them they are so simple, require no die cuts or machines. Just tear and roll, my kind of creating. LOL I also love the distress look that can stay clean and fresh, don't you?
For my second card I just covered my card base, added a tag to front.
Added some ribbon and tied into a bow, used one of the new Epiphany Crafts #25 Heart Charms with a #25 Bubble Cap to the top of it to my ribbon using some pink twine from My Minds Eye to give my card a little depth. Thanks for stopping by today. Hugs Pammejo

Valentine Hop - Jan 14/15

Do you feel it....the crisp air, some may be getting snow in their locations but "LOVE" is in the air and today we are sharing some Valentine inspiration with you to start celebrating the coming holiday. I made a lovely Valentine Mine Card and Tags container for my project today.
I used the We R Memory Keepers Love Struck Collection for my project and a small 4 x 4 plastic pink box container that is perfect for my project. SO.....if you came by to see what was happening today I would encourage you to go to Beyond Scrappin' Blog to join us in our Valentine Hop. I am sure the talented Nicolette would love for you to come hop along with us and if you came from the creative Leslie of Leslie Rahye Blog then you are heading in the right direction.
NOW.... back to my project, I love to fussy cut so I took some of the paper and cut the flowers from the sheets and added to my box top, once I had everything on the top of the box (buttons, bows, gemstones, etc) then I added Glossy Accent and set it to one side so it would have a chance to dry. I love Glossy Accent, if you have never tried it I would encourage you to do so, it is a wonderful adhesive but to use it over your embellishments is just amazing. Most importantly it is an inexpensive way to give your projects depth.
Tag 1 - I distressed my card front using my Tim Holtz distress tool, inked the edges, added some pink ric rac along with a Vintage Edition Bottle cap. The flower in the center of the bottle cap is a flower that I fussy cut out and place in the center.
Tag 2 - I have two pieces of paper that are layered after they have been distressed and ink. I made a paper ribbon from a 1/2" strip of matching paper, stapling into place and using pop dots placed the Sweet Love Birds in their nest on the front of the card.
Tag 3 - I punched out 3 different size circles from my Marvy Scallop punches, wrinkled them up, un-wrinkled them, did a little inking and layered them on top of each other. The center of the flower is an Epiphany 1/2" clear circle, what a fabulous new set of punches. They are a must have for all of us scrapbookers.
Tag 4 - I fussy cut the Be My Valentine from a piece of the collection and added it to the top of my card that I had wrapped with Pink Twine and a Heart Charm from Epiphany Crafts.
I made these two sweet tags using my Marvy Tag Punch, did a little decorating with pieces of the Love Stuck papers and added some of the 1/2" circle Epiphany Crafts. What I like most about my project is that it is a wonderful gift that I can give to some one for Valentine's Day and they are so versatile that one can use them for a gift, on a bag or just give a card. I hope you have enjoyed my project, feel free to follow my blog and if you have made any mini's please feel free to share your blog and post so we can all go and get some ideas. Now on to the next stop on the hop and that is with our fabulous Anita over at
Anita's and Bugs Blog. Hugs Pammejo

"Come Fly with Me"

I love this photo of Matthew and Isaac. They are both getting so big, hard to believe that Matthew is taller than I am now. In this photo they had insisted on wearing their grandpas hats to church, Matthew had just started getting his permanent teeth in and if you look real close you will see a toothpick hanging out of that huge gaping hold. I did this layout using all the products from the Artsy Urban Collection. I thought it was the perfect paper for my black and white photo of the boys and though some would say that pink and flowers shouldn't be used for boys I think it pulls the photo off of the page.
I mounted all of my papers onto black cardstock and the photo to red. The die cut that says "Come Fly with Me" was the perfect title to the page. I just love the paperclips and brads. They really add a classy look to any project. Hugs Pammejo

It's Cold Outside Blog Hop-Jan 7 and 8

It's Cold Outside Blog Hop is hosted my Zenita and if you would like to participate I would encourage you to go to Zenita's blog Scrappin with Z and join us but if you came from the talented Melissa blog Time Weavers than you are heading in the right direction. I made my card using Stampavie Snowy and Rudolph by stamping my image twice on Coconut Swirl cardstock and Memento Tuxedo Ink. I colored my stamp image with Copic Markers. Remember you only have to color one image completely in the other just the snow bank. Once the images are colored I fussy cut the image that I colored completely in and placed it on my other image using pop dots. I then placed both on my card base that I had made using Memory Box Christmas paper pak. I also did some pen work using a Clear Stardust pen and stapled into place with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. I added a little bling to front of the snowman's belly along with Glossy Accent for his nose and Rudolph nose. I hope you continue on with the hop and visit Lisa's Blog - Scrappin with Lisa -Handmade with Love. I am sure you have been so inspired along the way, would love for you to share what inspires you about the cold weather. Hugs Pammejo
