Just Add ... some Love and a bit of News!

Valentine Chocolate Heart Holders

Yes, there is a challenge happening at Just Add Ink this week - it's Just Add Love (Weddings, Valentine etc.)

It was an impossible week for me to try and get a challenge done and I hate letting down the team by not having something new to share today. However, LIFE HAPPENS!

So I thought I'd post some different pictures of my little Chocolate Heart Holders that I made in the last round of UStamp with Dawn and Friends, Year End Blow Out as a Guest Designer (The Oh! My Word Edition will go LIVE TODAY as well. Can't wait!)

Here's the link to the original post - Bliss Chocolate Heart Valentine Holders

Here's a couple of other links to some more Valentine's Day Projects -

Mojo Valentine

Heart Topped Box

That will have to do for now. I had a choice to either give my family take away for the third night in a row this week or get a card done for JAI #55. I opted to make Shepherd's Pie! Aside from the fact that after spending 4 to 5 hours on Tuesday with what I thought were a couple of great ideas in my head, they both turned out to be total disasters as my Mojo decided to go on holiday!

However, I know that a bunch of very cute little kids will be keen and eager to walk through the classroom door next Tuesday and will appreciate the fact that my new room will be in a less chaotic state than it was at the beginning of the week!

"So what's NEW?" (or NEWS in this case) Did you wonder about my blog post title?

If you haven't stopped by the Just Add Ink Blog, you should hop on over to see what's happening!

Hopefully, I'll be back with a NEW Just Add Ink Challenge to share with you next week!

Thanks for stopping by,

I just love these little boxes Bron! And don't worry about not doing a specific project this week, there are times when our priorities are elsewhere and that's just life!
I am glad you shared these anyway, because I think they're adorable :) And the chocolate is looking so good to me right now! lol

What a fun idea. I think I may have to incorporate it into my upcoming Chicks & Chocolate class. I even bought some Hershey's Bliss chocolate hearts! Perfect.

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

 JUGs #350 - Word Week

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
