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…

 Today, I am showing off a super cute file from PPPR.  I used the Heart Banner Cutting File… which was just perfect for my project!  The thing I love most about the PPPR files is that they fit together so easily there really is no guessing on how they go together! 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?
