Sunny Day

Hi Crafters, the title should really read Snowy Day instead of Sunny Day lol, are you enjoying all this lovely snow? Well, if your tucked up in the house with nowhere to go I'm sure the answer is yes but I really don't like driving in it at all, the main roads seem fine but I live in the country ontop of a hill, not too good unless you have a sleigh lol.  Well I have eventually got round to posting some of my latest projects, I decided that I have not been doing enough scrapbooking, I save everything for my scrapbook, tickets, invitations, newspaper clippings, you name it I save it. SO, I ordered myself the lovely 'Sunny Days' simply scrappin kit...........and what do I do............make cards lol oh and little gifts.......well I couldn't help it and anyway there is loads of stuff left for my scrapbook.....I will eventually get round to it! But aren't these colours just GORGEOUS! Love them! and the cardstock that comes with the kit is textured, beautiful! If you have never had one of the Simply Scrappin Kits before here is what you get
3 sheets each of two designs of fabulous double sided designer paper (12x12)
2 sheets each of 4 colours of textured cardstock
2 sheets each of 3 designs of self adhesive die cuts
and everything is coordinating!

On the top picture you will see a little pot I made for a candle, I came up with this design last Christmas when I needed pots for plants I had bought for the childrens teachers, I sat with a 12x12 piece of paper, twisting and turning until eventually I got the pot I wanted and no glue or cuts is needed! I will come back with instructions for this as its so handy and easy to make in any size. Above you can see a little easel calender card I've made, this is my first easel card, think I must be the last person to try this out lol. Everything used is from the Simply Scrappin Kit except for the little happy day stamp.

And last but not least is my little tweet treat bag, I've seen these little bags on a few blogs, I've heard them called Diaper Fold Bags but for this one I was inspired by Monica Gale who made a little tutorial on the In Love With Stamping Forum. Loved how Monica used the word window punch to close the little treat bag, great idea.
