Another Valentine

I saw this card and I had to CASE (copy and share everything) it. You can click on the picture to make it bigger. I was looking for a card that we could do in 4-H. This is a little too complicated for them, but super stinkin' cute. I love it, I made two. The little heart on the side is glitterified.
Stamps: A Happy Heart
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss (I think)

Swap Valentine

This is my card for the card swap in January. The instructions were to use bling. I cased the idea from this blog.

I cut out the red heart with my cricut and then painted it with Shimmerz paint. I stamped the heart, cut it out and then added rhinestones to the center of the flowers. Oh, and the white is embossed with the swissdots Cuttlebug folder.

Kids Valentines

These are the other things we did this week in 4-H. The club is really big into service, so the girls made one Valentine to take home and one that I sent to the Cards for Kids program which you can read more about 2 posts down.

I wanted to do something kid friendly so I chose the bug images from the SU set Bugs & Kisses. The girls did a really cute job.

Box in a Bag

The 4-H club that I teach started up again this week. The girls must have really had fun last semester because all but two are back and I have 4 new members. That's 13 girls total. This is one of the projects we made this week. It's called a box in a bag.

The original instructions can be found here. I made a cute bag for my friends birthday that looked similar to the examples on these links, but I forgot to take a picture of it. Trust me it was cute. For the girls, I had to make it smaller and much easier, so I took out lots of the embellishments. It's much plainer.
Here are some examples of the cute things people have done with them:
Halloween Purse
Green Argyle
Purse in a Box (a little bigger)
