Give a Hoot!

Owls seem to be everywhere these days. I just love how cute they are and the big variety of styles they incorporate.  My daughter was working on an American Girl craft project (an owl pillow, of course) and it gave me the inspiration to create this cute Fay-vor...Tootie Hootie!

 This cute little pouch fits a full size Hershey bar just perfect! 

You could even tuck in a note and some cash or a gift card for a truly Sweet & Simple gift sure to get a "HOOT" out of "who"-ever you share it with.  I actually used the pattern pieces from the pillow kit as templates for making this cute pouch.  Have owls inspired you lately?  ScrapCraft a "hoot" of a project today!

Thanks So Much!

Do we ever say it enough?  I know I could be better at saying this simple phrase and more than that, sending a Sweet and Simple card to show just how thankful I am...for whatever it is at the time.  No need for anything monumental to occur, sometimes a simple "Thanks for Being You" can change someone's day. This happy and bright card just makes you want to smile!
See that cute little yellow flower? The yellow base is the back side of the stamp. I put it on the block backwards and stamped...oops! But in the end, a happy accident...flip it over and stamp the outline (actual stamp) in another color.

Such a fun card to make! Another Sweet & Simple design. I used stamps by The Stamps of Life.  I used all the stamps with "thanks" from several different sets. 
This flower makes me happy!  Love how it turned out!!! I stamped the large flower 3 times and the small flower once on patterned paper and cut them all out.  Leave the base flower flat, fold the petals on the next large flower, curl the petals on the top large flower and adhere using pop dots for great dimension. Fold the small flower petals and adhere with another pop dot. Finish with felt flower, Stickles and a rhinestone for bling! 

 So go ahead and make someone's day today...get out your toys and play!  ScrapCraft a Sweet & Simple card to say "Thanks!"
