Shar Hoff :: Valentine Cuties

Happy Tuesday! It's Shar again from Scrapendipity Studio. I'm loving the Valentine themed release and have used it along with the the adorable jumping rope girl, one of my favorites, for today's first project. The sentiment is also from the January release. You'll find just about everything you could want on this set, I'm telling you!

I've replaced her jump rope with heart balloons and used embroidery floss for her pigtails. Isn't she super sweet.
And a wobble. I don't know what came over me, but suddenly everything seems so much more fun on a wobble. LOL She's sure a cutie patootie!

For my second project I used the adorable stinky skunk stamp from the Cheer Up set with the January release set. I used the bow and added stickles. I paper pieced her and used clear embossing powder for the lines and glossy accents for her eyes and nose.

The "I love you" sentiment is part of the new release as well, but the punny follow up I did myself and printed from my computer. :) I love using play on words! 

Here's a better look at the whole treat box. I guess people call them 'sour cream containers' but I have never seen sour cream come in one of these! It's cute anyway, and easy to make. Just roll a 6x4 piece of paper into a cylinder (I wrapped it around a toilet paper roll) and secure it so you have a tube. Squish one end together and glue it closed. Run the end through the crimper if you have one, if not, no big, it still works. :) Squish the other end of the tube in the opposite direction and run the end through the crimper but don't glue it shut. Fill it with treats or toys, then punch two holes and tie closed with twine or ribbon.

 

Thanks again for the love! I'm really enjoying my time here this month. And super enjoying my peachy stamps all over again. ♥
