Bell's and Whistles GD

Happy Monday everyone!! Burrrr winter has arrived here in Maryland and temperatures sure have dropped. We are at 28 degrees as I write this. Too dang cold for me to be out there! My hubby called me Friday from work and said "How would you like to go to one of the Islands the first of April?"  and my response was "do we have to wait so long!?!" Silly question, he knows I will go anytime!

I had an exciting email a few weeks ago asking me to be a Guess Designer on Bell's and Whistle's. I couldn't say yes fast enough and what a huge honor this is!  I was chosen for top 3 Designers. What an honor!!  I love Elizabeth Bell images!   This month's challenge at Bell's and Whistles is "Hearts" and I knew immediately which stamp I would be using and it is  Blowing Kisses.   She was designed  for SCACD and you can find her here.  She is blowing you heart kisses with lots of love! I wanted to create something a little different and found this video on  Splitcoaststampers by Beate to create a Heart candy box with easy to follow directions. I love the way it turned out!

Paper: Bo Bunny/Crush Collection
Memory Box Die: La Rue Heart
SpellBinders  Classic Heart and Scallop Classic Heart on sale here for 19.49!
Flowers: Prima
Copics: Face: E21, E00, E11 and R20. Hair: E35, E53, E51, E50. Dress: RV23, RV21 and RV00. Socks: YG23 and YG21.

 LOL! I am on a diet and had no candy to fill the box to make it pretty!! Lace holds the top and bottom piece together when open.

Lace was adhere to the sides in two strips.

Hope you like it!! Very easy to make following Beate Directions and Video.

TIP OF THE DAY: Store your not so juicy ink pads upside down to let the ink sink to the top of the pads.

Round up your friends 
Come meet some of The Outlawz Design Team members and your online friends.
