Edit: The envelope that I used for my project is a 4" x 4" Papertrey Kraft envy. My computer with all my photo software is messed up with possibly a virus. DH is working on it now. So I probably won't be uploading my Inspiration Station today. Regarding the next round of The 12 Days of Me Kit.......I need to be able to access my other computer so there will be a slight delay on the kits. Thanks for your patience!
Happy weekend everyone! We were finally able to make out way to the highway yesterday, through all the drifted snow that was plowed. We were all so cooped up. Who knew a trip to Walmart could be such a nice get away. Don't ask me to ever say that again. Because I won't. ;)
Anyway, while in Wally World, I was looking for the Valentine aisle. No Valentine aisle. Boo. So until I can get my crafty hands on some Valentine goodies, I settled for a paper crafted lollipop. If you ordered one of my latest Valentine kits, you got a heart doo dad like the one below along with a lollipop stick. The girls have been saving their slobbered on sucker sticks just so I could use them in your kits. Snort! Not really.....callllllllm down now. :) Your sticks are brand new!
Since these paper lollipops can get a little bulky, I used mine to embellish the outside of a Papertrey square envelope. I'll probably tuck a little Valentine inside or maybe a gift certificate to our local chocolate/candy shop. That would be a sweet treat indeed.
For the envelope, I stamped Fresh Snow hearts from Background Basics: Hearts for the overall background. Then I used Dawn's Say it With Style sentiment *You are so sweet* in Pure Poppy ink. The lollipop was created by punching the large heart and then sewing on a Vintage Pure Poppy Button. The ribbon is Sweet Blush Swiss Dot. To adhere the lollipop to the envelope, I used two layers of pop dots on each side of the sucker sticks. To adhere the sucker stick to the heart doo dad, I simply used a piece of clear office tape.
Oh my gosh, can you image an entire basket filled with these sweet little envelopes? I think I must make some more. I hope you have a SWEET day! I think Eric's invited some of the girls' friends over to go tubing. Jordan is working on some new crafty projects that are soooooooo stinkin' sweet....I might even put some in my Etsy shop, they're that cute! And I am working in my craft room today. I lost my mind a while back and took on a 5 day subbing job next week. Right during Papertrey release week. Right during our basketball tournament. Eeek, I must get all my stamping done this weekend so that I can remain somewhat sane next week.
P.S.......I'm taking photos of my Valentine Inspiration Station and will post them very soon. I know you're all patiently waiting. :)
