Who's Your Doggie?

Ha... love that.... "Who's Your Doggie?" makes me smile every time. I remembered that I forgot to share with you the Valentine's I made for my kids. I remembered that I forgot... lol, that is too familiar these days!

Do you remember Nicole's boxes I made for Averie's Valentine's? I had all these pieces left over of scrap paper. Dang it if I can just throw them away... I'm the worst at hoarding and not throwing away scraps when it comes to designer paper. I know my desk would look SO much better if I just tossed it. Just.... can't... do it. So, I took the pieces of scraps left over from the boxes and made these for my kiddos.

No matter how much they see me stamping and making cards, they never seem to tire of getting one hand made by me. Gotta love em! Even my 15 yr. old smiled and touched the heart. The hearts all had Fluff on them... a new product we'll have soon at OCL. Averie's had the Sparkly Fluff since her heart was pink. All I have in the Sparkly is the pink... go figure. I know I'll get some other colors soon though. *wink*.

So, if you make the boxes, DO not throw away all the scraps! You can whip these up in no time flat! See where the ribbon is? That is covering up a score line. The diagonal piece? It's one of the flaps from the box. The scallop piece behind the dog image is from the reverse side of the designer paper. I just doubled up two pieces, then ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Scallop Circle Nestie. Easy Peasy. :) Very little waste of the precious designer paper. :)
