Another super duper stamp set brought to us by Miss Emma! What cute sentiments, and super cute teddies! I used a Silhouette Studio file from Lori Whitlock to make this cute shadow box frame. And of course I had to use pics of the cutest babies ever!

How cute are these stamps?! How much do I love you? No way to measure! I used a cute flair button from Paper Play Studio. The paper pieced bear is from My Scrap Chick, however, I'm not finding it. You could always write to her and ask, or use any bear of your choosing.

These little grand babies... are my precious teddy bears, for sure! I love using the crinkle ribbon and twine. I really like the look it gives. I also used a few other of Emma's sets on this project.

Pick up some of these sets and get to creating one of these keepsake frames of your own. Thanks to Emma for another great set of stamps!

I designed this to be hung, not sitting, although if you put it on an easel, the teddy bear won't be an issue hanging off the bottom a bit. I used my hot glue gun to attach a string to the back to be hung as a picture would, where you can't see the hanger. The reason? I forgot to attach the ribbon for hanging when I assembled the frame. But, as Emma says, there are no mistakes in paper crafting!

Another cute little project using a matchbox file from SVGCuts. I added a little bag of Gummy Bears...appropriate for Teddy Bear hop, right?! Easy peasy but super cute!

Here's my project I made for the blog hop. I loved this little apothecary box from SVGCuts and the spider and web from the Silhouette store, combined with the cute little stamp set, Spooky Treats, and it was perfect.

I also used the new tag die and made a little card with it. I folded a piece of black cardstock in half and positioned the die so that the fold was just below the hole. Then I cut another and layered it on top so the fold was hid. The top layer I ran through the distressed stripes folder and inked up a bit. I added a small square inside to write a little note. I added some spiderweb tulle and twine along with the flair button to finish it off.

Here's a pic of the inside of the tag.

Here's better shot of the top with the spider web and spider.

 Log onto to your Facebook now and let's start spreading word!;)

 Here's the first project I made using stamps from the new release. I hope you like!

 I used the 3x3 Trifold Card Die to create this cute little tray style box. I made a simple box using a square piece of cardstock, measuring 5x5. Score at one inch on all sides. Cut the short score line up to the long score line on two opposite sides. Fold up and adhere the tabs. Cut out the other papers using the die and layer as I did in this picture.

 Here is a close up pic using the Scallop and Stitched Circle Die with the sentiment and the little cookie stamp. I used tulle to tie the bag of cookies closed and glued the medallion on the top. 

  I also used a couple of the other stamps included in the set and the Teeny Tag Greetings Stamp Set that comes with two tag dies, and used only the dies. I used the "just add" and "hot milk." I put a piece of tape to cover over the word hot, stamped on the ink, remove the tape, and stamped just the word "milk" onto the tag. Stamp "just add" right above and you have a cute little "just add milk" tag. And who doesn't want a cold glass of milk with their chocolate chip cookies?! Also, the cute flower is made using the scalloped die from the Scalloped and Stitched Circle Die.

Come back on Friday for the blog hop, leave some comments, and be entered in the drawing to win some goodies. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other designers projects!

Fun times are on the lookout!

 Sorry, for here again, more pics! I got to thinking you may want to see what I stamped on each tag. Enjoy!

 Coming up on fall, and it's my fave time of year! I love the colors, the crisp air, the sound of the leaves crunching under foot. I had just gotten this new stamp set from My Creative Time and LOVE the little leaf dies. So, I set about creating some little tag note cards and a box to hold them. Sometimes you just want to leave an encouraging note for someone, not always to mail. These are flat cards, not fold over, although you could scale the box to fit whatever size and then add envies too. The sky is the limit! Wouldn't this be a nice gift for maybe a teacher, or office manager....someone that just wants to encourage. How to fun to find a little card like this on your desk when you came to work in the morning! I hope in some way, you find inspiration in this post and on my blog. That's why I do what I do. Hope you enjoy these pics. Come back often!  The sets used here are listed in the post below. Go check out Miss Emma's won't be disappointed!

I used a file from the Silhouette Store to create this little box of tag note cards. They are flat cards, not fold over. Great for just a little note for encouragement or attached to a gift. I used stamps from my favorite stamp company, My Creative Time. Go and check out all of Emma's wonderful stamp and die sets.

I made these cute little treat boxes using files from the Silhouette store and print/cut them using my Cameo. I like my Eclips a lot, but if I want to print and cut, I go with my's so easy! I love printing papers using digital files I have acquired over time. It can get pricey so that's why I got a Continuous Ink Supply System. I can always print just what I need and never run out of just that one piece you wish you had more of. The costs of the ink to refill versus buying new cartridges in the store is way crazy cheaper!!! I used an Epiphany Shape tool for the button and the stamp is from My Creative Time.

I used a file from the Silhouette store by Lori Whitlock to make this cute little box. It has an inset lid that you can put a few goodies in. I did some bats and a few beads. Love this little box! The stamps and banner are from My Creative Miss Emma's stamps! Check out these products and create your own Trick or Treat goodie box!
