Favorite Finds for the 6th Week of 2010

Ribbon Flowers on Cards
What a simply cute idea to embellish a card. If you haven't already checked out Kelly Rasmussen's blog, then be sure to hop over there and follow her. She always posts super cute card ideas.

Chic Pearl Necklace
I've seen a few of these ideas and always love the idea of combining jewelry with flowers of all sorts. Lei explains how she created this on her blog.

Love & Food Storage
I thought this was a cute idea that you could give for Valentines or any other special day, couldn't resist showing it to you all. For the tag – that reads “Because I always want you to be safe” and contents list, click here.

Olympic Cookie Medals
In honor of the Olympics beginning I thought I'd share a fun idea I found at Alpha Mom. Check it out to see step by step how to create this fun and useful medal!

My Composition Notebook
...was featured on Scrapbook Trend's blog this past week...wahoo! It was created with Imaginisce's Sweet Cheri Collection. I used a technique that Janna Wilson taught in an online class I participated in...such a fun technique and perfect for this project!!

Erin's Fabric Flower Tutorial
The great Erin Bassett not only posted the how to make these fun flowers on her blog, but she also posted a "video" tutorial for all of us that need the extra visual help.

Pie in a Jar
Love this yummy idea...I think I've even posted about it before. But what I really wish is that one of my talented friends would make one for me!! Check out the how-to here.

Heart Newspaper Blocks
A ton of great ideas for Valentines were posted around the web...this one from Brown Paper Packages stuck out for me.


Zipper Ruffle Shoes
I loved these when I saw them on Diary of a Craftaholic's blog. She bought the flats for a discount at TJ Maxx and simply added the zipper...I can't wait to try this. Check out her blog, she's suppose to post a tutorial soon. UPDATE 2/16/10: Tutorial can be found here!


CARD CLASS: by Sue Neal
I have always loved Sue Neal's designs, ever since I saw her first card published in Paper Crafts. Now she teaches at Robert's stores along the Wasatch Front and I'm so excited about her latest class, Tender Mercies (sympathy). I loved these designs that I ran home after seeing them posted at the store and hoped on her blog so I could sign up for her class!! Join me if you can!
