There's still time . . .

There is no theme for this Linky Party ... as long as you create using ANYTHING Crafty Secrets / Heartwarming Vintage, you qualify for the prize!  A Winner will be announced next Mon, Mar 11/13 to WIN a $50.00 Crafty Secrets Gift Certificate.  Don't be shy - come play because every person that enters will receive a $6.00 coupon code to use in our Store!  How awesome is that!!

Here are a few things I've been working on using Crafty Secrets products ...

This was such a fun card to create!  The main image is from the Creative Scraps CS01-DS Spring - Easter sheet.  The card is a gate fold card design in which I've placed a Spellbinder die on the 'inside' (cut side up) of the front flaps in order to cut out the window pattern.  TIP:  If you are going to  use designer paper on the front flaps, you'll want to do that before you cut out your window.
Accessories:  Spellbinder Labels 9, Cheery Lynn B117S Fanciful Flourish Sm, Prima flowers, Kaiser pearls, Lime Green Stickles

Hotshot Craft Blog #15 - Anything But a Card (Hershey Pouch)
Another fun creation to share with you today is this  
Easter Hershey Bar Pouch.


The cute bunny & sentiment on the front are from the Bunny Hop Printable Download at the Crafty Secrets 'Crafty Vintage Girl' store.  The background paper is from my scrap box and the base paper is bright pink cardstock.  Offray satin ribbon and prima flowers were used to embellish.  

Though hard to see, so here's a close up ... I've colored my bunny using my alcohol markers and digitally placed the sentiment on his belly!  These are perfect little Easter treats and, who doesn't like a Hershey Bar!

OKAY ... now you'd better hurry ... TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!!

Hope to see you there!
as always ...
