Valentine's Treats

So here are the finished pinwheels for my two sons' classes. They all loved them. We decided to give the girls the heart paper and came up with a blue paper for the boys. They were a hit!!!

Wedding Card

Here is a wedding card I made this morning. I didn't have much time to deliberate on how I was going to make it but I think it turned out well. The heart and "Happily Ever After" were cut from Storybook at 2".

Pinwheel instructions

Here are the instructions for making a pinwheel. This is super easy!!!! Have fun creating. There is also a pinwheel on the Mother's Day cricut cartridge from last year.

4"x 4" piece of double sided card stock



Score the cardstock on the diagonal making an "x".

Cut the "x" leaving about 1/4" in the middle. DO NOT CUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH

Apply adhesive to very center of paper.

Take one edge and fold to middle. Whichever direction you choose, keep it the same on each cut section. Apply adhesive to middle after each fold.

The center can be decorated as desired. I used a brad which re-enforced holding that middle section. I use my cricut dental pick to pierce a hole in the middle of the pin wheel so I can easily place the brad.

*** You can adjust the size of the card stock to whatever project you are doing. Just make sure you have a square. ***
Feel free to email with any questions.

Happy Crafting!!!!

More Valentine Treat ideas

While at Camp Crop Alot, I learned to make a pin wheel card thanks to Angel. She is a Close to My Heart Sales Rep. She taught several classes over the weekend. Great job Angel!!! So of course this pin wheel got my wheels turning. This is what I came up with. I think my boys friends will be getting these for Valentine's Day this year!!! I love them. So simple and great for any occasion. Just a reminder...... I can custom make these for any event!!!! Just give me a call or send me a message. I'm on Facebook too so check out our page.


New friends and lots of laughs

Hi Everyone,
I am going to say again what a great time I had this past weekend at Camp Crop Alot in Americus. If you have never been to this retreat I urge you to get online and find a weekend to go. It is a great value and lots of fun!!! Get your girlfriends together and plan your trip now. I met lots of new friends and enjoyed time with old ones too. My new friends wanted to know how to make the sour cream treat containers they have seen on my blog. Being the great friend I am, I obliged. Well, when I returned from shopping, this was at my crop space. This was their version of the sour cream treat container. I love it!!!! So many laughs and great memories were made. Love you girls!!!!!
