Best. Day. Ever. Butterfly Bottle Carrier!

                             
Welcome Stampin' Friends!
I know, I'm a little butterfly crazy lately! But I thoughly enjoyed playing with some FREE Sale-a-Bration goodies and of course, my favorite Occasions Catalog product, the Butterfly Basics Bundle! "Celebrate" just about any occasion or even just the day with this adorable bottle carrier! 
One of my Create Happy Crew and dear friend, Lisa Fronti, came up with this designed and created one of these adorable bottle carrier for Christmas (Thank You Lisa!) sooo, yea, and I totally CASED it!

Using the Best Day Ever stamp set  and the Best Day Ever Accessory Pack from Sale-a-bration, it was easy to come up with these color combos. Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry work so well together! Added Soft Suede to bring it all together. Measurements and Details:
~First use Mulitpurpose Tombow glue to adhere both tall pieces to the cardboard base, overlapping the bottoms and lining up the score lines to the edges of cardboard base. As long as the bottle inside isn't too heavy, this base will hold
~Pinch together the tops of the pieces you just adhered to base. Using the Tombow glue, adhere the top closure piece, making sure to center score lines and edges of holder. 
~Punch holes and tie a handle with ribbon.
~Assemble the belly band by folding on score lines and adhere together before adding your embellishments. Fits right of the holder for easy on, easy off! 
A neighbor of ours has a birthday next week. I think she'll love the packaging more than the single serve bottle of wine! I'm thinking these would make great favors for a shower, wedding, anniversary...whatever you can come up with. This bottle is plastic so not too heavy. Just be careful with the of the bottle you put inside. These would be stinkin cute for a baby shower with a small baby powder container inside! Here's Lisa's bottle carrier...and my inspiration!

Happy Valentine's Day Hubby!

Welcome Stampin' Friends!
Hubby's Valentine! Shhhh, don't tell him yet! Ran a piece of aluminium foil in the Honeycomb Embossing folder through the Big Shot! I've done this technique using the Chevron folder before, but think I like this one even better. 
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Enjoy and stay warm!

Hmmm, I think I've been working my Big Shot cutting plates too hard! Did the whole oven thing and it actually worked for a few weeks. But considering I've had this pair for 6 years...Ya think it's time to part with them? 
There are many videos out there with instructions on using your oven to flatten cutting plates and getting those tiny card stock slivers out. Try it...or just get new ones! I was pleasantly surprised that the new ones are a bit larger and have beveled edges. Why did I wait so long!
