50's Sweethearts Mailboxes

Here are a few more mailboxes that I made for my niece to give to her teachers for Valentines Day.   For these, I used the new digital image from The Greeting Farm called 50's Sweethearts.  I just love this new image.  Don't they remind you of Danny and Sandy from Grease?  Too cute!!!!
Each mailbox had a bunch of wrapped Hershey's Nuggets (like the ones I had in my other mailbox post).  I used DP from Basic Grey's Bittersweet and Scarlett's Letter line.

Having Tea with Pretty Hat Anya

I wanted to do a non-traditional gift for a friend, co-worker or teacher for Valentine's Day.  A little something to say "I Love You" or "I appreciate You" without all the mushy stuff.  Some people might feel weird giving their co-workers something with hearts and the word "love" on it.  Anyhow, this is a tea packet dispenser that one can keep on her desk.  It's so cute and since it doesn't have the traditional Valentines Day theme, they could use it all year long and can be given for many other occasions.  I used the Pretty Hat Anya stamp and once again I made use of my Basic Grey paper.  This dispenser stands about 6" tall.
Here is an upclose view of her pearl necklace.  I used white pearlstuds from Kandi Corp.

Not sure if you remember but I made this box in an earlier post.  I just changed it up a bit to turn it into a dispenser.  You can see that post here.

Baby Booties

Hi everyone!  Sorry I have been MIA for a while.  I was sick like a dog and didn't get around to doing much of anything.  For those of you that are waiting for more Valentine's Day projects, I will be uploading more photos within the next couple days.  Anyways, while I was sick I had to work on these darling little baby bootie favors for a baby shower I will be going to on Sunday.  My friend is having a baby girl and that gave me a chance to use a lot of my Basic Grey papers.  I just love the soft vintage look these papers gave to the booties.  I filled each bootie with wrapped assorted Hershey Nuggets.
These were fun to make (I made 40 of em') but it was very time consuming, after seeing the end result, I guess it was well worth it! LOL!
