Valentines treats

Well it's Monday, what a long day its been.  I'm sitting in my craft room thinking about Valentines treats for my office.  Suddenly I realize I haven't posted this week.
This treat bag is very quick 20 minutes (but that includes picking the paper, stamps, and ribbon).
This is a 2.5 cello bag, the paper is scraps, the ribbon is a scrap, the stamp is from stampin up.
I used Ruby red ink, close to cocoa, and white craft ink.  I didn't use my cricut, I punched the hearts with Creative Memories punches.

Male Birthday

I have a bunch of birthdays coming up for males. Aren't men hard to make cards for. This is a card I saw on Pintrest. I used stampin Up sanded as my back ground stamp and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I cut the Happy out with Plantin School book, I cut it twice once on chipboard and then once on patterned paper found on the HopScotch cartridge (cricut imagine). I used my imagine to cut the cupcake, found on the Better Together cartridge. I cut the Balloon and the party hat on my imagine, and flood filed the images with patterned paper found on the HopScotch cartridge. The birthday was a stamp from CTMH and embossed with white embossing powder.

As I said I am trying to post at least once a week, so here is my card for this week.

I saw this on pintrest, and thought it would be the perfect card for one of the girls at work. She adores shoes. I clicked on the link to see if I could find instructions, I could but you had to pay for them, so I decided to make my own.

Supplies used:
Cricut Wedding Cartridge -- the shoe cut at 3.25 inches.
Flowershop Cartridge -- flower cut at 1.5 inches
Tags Bags Boxes and More -- tag cut at 2 inches
Bubblegum Strips -- for the pattern on the shoe and for the pattern on the tag and background
Stampinup paper and two pieces of scrap DP I had left over.

Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder.
