Summer Tease

Yes, I know its COLD everywhere but Arizona!!  I wanted to share a file that I used from PPPR… I LOVE this file…it looks exactly like a Suntan Lotion bottle… the kind I used to buy at the drugstore back in the days when I laid out everyday, all day long trying to get a tan… Hahahahhaha… now I live in the Valley of the Sun and I don't do much sun bathing!!

Hope everyone gets some warmth soon… I'll send you some sunshine from sunny Arizona!!

Anything Goes Blog Hop

Welcome to the PPPR Anything Goes Blog Hop!!  If you came here from Shannon's Blog you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog.

This is kind of a fun and different HOP... in that there really is no theme!!  We just used some of our favorite files or new ones to show off the PPPR files today!

I used an "oldie but goodie" file... it is one that I go to a lot.  This Acorn Cutting File is one of my all time favorites!!  It is found in the Fall section, but I seriously use this one often and all year around!  I made this cute little treat bag full of nuts for a friend at work... and wanted it to be more generic than cutesy... I punched the top of the bag with a decorative punch, and then put pistachios inside!  Does it get any easier that that?

Don't forget to pick up the Blog Hop freebie on Saturday and Sunday! Monday is goes in the store for sale!!  I love this file!!  So, so cute!!  Expect to see a creation or two with this little guy soon!!

Also, don't forget about our PPPR Anything Goes Challenge. The projects can be anything at all that features Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files and a chance to win $20 in the PPPR store!!

OK... you all know that you are in for an extra special goodie with Gloria... she is up next!!

All Business...

I just love this Clipboard file from PPPR!!  I have used it so many times over for various projects!!  As a Part-time Personal Trainer, I use a clipboard just about everyday… in fact so many kind folks have give me clip boards over the past several years… so I guess I have one in my hands a lot… huh??

Well, I thought this was a perfect way to give a client a little message, in my own special way!  I used this file to create the clipboard and then stamped a sweet message:  Congratulations on your weight loss!"  I put a magnet on the back so they can be reminded of their hard work, rather it be placed on the fridge or wall somewhere!!

It also compliments the brand new files in the PPPR store this week!!  I simply cant wait to get my hands on these and play!!  I think I will find a few ways to use them!!  :)

Up, Up and Away

I just loved this file from the moment I saw it at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons!!  There are so many clever ways to use this one!  I chose to use it as a Valentine's office gift!  Heart Air Balloon is such a versatile file!!

So very easy to put together, it took no time at all!!  (Those are the best kinds…)  The Hot Air Balloon basket was a fun height  to use… it was tall enough to fit perfectly on a gift bag filled with a nail file and polish!

Drink it up...

Happy New Year… January is always a great month to start making goals or changing up our routines!    Sometimes, I struggle with drinking water everyday…or at least enough water throughout the day.  The recommended goal should be to drink half of your body weight- in ounces-  How many of you do that now?  I know I haven't in a very long time!

So to get the ball rolling, I challenged a few girls at work to drink more H2O and I thought this would be a really cute way to start the challenge…

I used the PPPR file Bottle Bag 2  which was perfect as it had a little pocket so that I could put a little packet of Crystal Light in the front.  It fit perfectly over a bottle of water, but it fits over any bottled beverage… :)

I embossed it using a "waves" folder… which I thought looked a little like water, but it looks more decorative than water... and that's the idea..

Very easy to make and I loved the way they turned out!!  Make a goal for yourself to drink more water this year… you'll feel better and your skin will love you for it!!

Thanks for stopping by…

Just perfect for a quick project but looks like you spent some serious time putting it all together!!  

I cut this file and stamped on the banner” Sealed with  Kiss!”  I put it on a little white paper sack I purchased at Michael’s and tied with a pretty red bow!! Inside I placed a super cute pair of socks!  These will make perfect Valentines gifts for the office and friends… Right?

Happy New Year!

It is my day to show off yet, another cute file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons...

I love New Years!!  I think I like the fact that it is like a clean slate as we move into the New Year!  I am one that definitely writes down New Years Resolutions… every year growing up, my mom would have us write down our New Year Resolutions, and then she would put them in an envelope and stick them in a book… not to be opened until New Years Eve the following year… those were so much fun to look at on New Years Eve… I still do that today!!

For my project today, I made a New Years Card!  Isn't he just darling??  The cut is from PPPR Little Hoot!    I love this cut, as it can be used for almost any holiday!!  How versatile is that??  I cut him out along with the top hat… as he looks festive and certainly ready to bring in the Newy Year!!

I wish everyone a Happy New Year!!  May you be healthy and happy… and accomplish much!!
