Quick Cookie Party Favor with CD Envelopes

Hello to all my friends and followers!  Hooray it's Friday and I'm heading to CKC Lantcaster this weekend!!!  I hope to get some great inspiration to share with you guys in the future!
For today's project I am showing you some very quick favors I made for a birthday party I had this past weekend.
I made some huge chocolate chip cookies, put them on some wax paper and slid them into a CD envelope for a quick package.  To make the cookies even quicker I picked up a large tub of cookie dough from my local warehouse store.  I placed a level ice cream scoop of cookie dough on a cookie sheet, flattened it down a bit and baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  They fit perfectly in the CD window.

CD Envelopes  -  Walmart
Craft Seam Binding, Coffee Bean  -  EK Success
Happy Day 6x6 Paper Pad  -  Simple Stories
Fine Linen Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Evergreen Bough Distress Ink
Copic Markers  -  E25, BG10, E33

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I have enjoyed all the nice comments you have all left for me.     
Have a wonderful weekend!

Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)

A Card, Altered Flip Flops, and a Bookmark - Guest Designer for My Creative Time

Good morning, this is Cathryn from In the Pink.  Today I am guest designing for Emma!  So happy to help fill in for such a sweet lady!
I have a bunch of projects for you today, all with at least one thing in common.  They use some of Emma's dies to make flower embellishments!

My first project is a card I made with the Fun Pockets stamp and die set, the Floral Sentiments stamp set and the Flower Petal die.  I used an epoxy paperclip and the Flower petal die to make a much prettier clip to put on the pocket.  It can be removed and used separately.

The next projects are made from plain flip flops I purchased at Target.  I dressed them up with the Flower Petal and Scallop circle dies and some felt from Papertrey Ink.

I used some heavy duty quilting thread to sew each flower together and then onto the flip flops.

I made these flowers using the stitched circle die.  I cut the felt at each scallop about 3/4 of the way to the center.  The middle flower has one layer from the Flower Petal die on top.

This project is a bookmark I made using a Jumbo paperclip and one of the same flowers from the above flip flops.

I used a needle and thread to whip stitch the flower on to the large clip, then I fabric glued another felt flower over the back to hide the stitching.

Here are the paperclips before I added the flowers.

Supplies I Used:
Fun Pockets stamp and die set, Scallop and Stitched Circle dies,
Flower Petal die and Floral Sentiments stamp set  -  My Creative Time
Lost and Found Two paper pad  -  My Minds Eye
Fine Linen Card Stock and Holiday Mix Vintage Buttons  -  Papertrey Ink
Lemon Tart, Raspberry Fizz and Blueberry Sky Felt  -  Papertrey Ink
Paperclips  -  Walmart
Flip flops  -  Target
3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue  -  Beacon Adhesives
Pearls from my stash

That is it for me today!  I hope you enjoyed my post and found some useful ideas!  Thank you to Emma for creating such fabulous products for us to use!  Have a great day!!!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)

Altered Picture Frame

Good Morning to all my friends!  Today I have a quick project I did with a small frame I picked up at Michaels.  I used the Rolled Flower die from My Creative Time to cut out some felt flowers to adorn it.  I used UTEE on the leaves to make the card stock more durable and Hot Glue to adhere it all to the frame.   I put the sentiment inside to make it pretty for gift giving instead of the "fake" picture it came with hehehe.

My Supplies:
Rolled Flower die  -  My Creative Time
Floral Sentiments stamp set  -  My Creative Time
Raspberry Fizz Felt and Ripe Avocado Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Pink felt and frame  -  Michaels
UTEE and Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad for leaves
Peeled Paint and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks
Rose Leaf Punch  -  Martha Stewart
Pearls from my stash
Hot Glue

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!
Love and Hugs,

Flip Flop Birthday Cards

Good Morning everyone!    I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  Today I have 2 birthday cards using some of my favorite dies and stamps!  I used the Papertrey Ink Flipside die and My Creative Time All Around Birthday Time stamp set, All Around Everything Accessories stamp set and the Scallop and Stitched Circle dies.

For this card I used:
Sunnyside paper  -  My Mind's Eye
Summer Sunrise Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
 Scattered Straw Stickles and Distress Ink
Lady Bug Ink  -  Memento
Jute Ribbon  -  Liz's Paper Loft Boutique
Copic Marker Y02
Adhesive gems and dimensionals

Additional Supplies for this card:
Lace  -  Vintage Whimsy Market Trims, The Girls' Paperie
Distress Tool  -  Tonic

Well that's it for me today!  I hope you enjoyed this post.  Have a fabulous day!!!
