Simple Chocolate Towers

Here's what I did with the scrap from the hearts I punched out for yesterday's card. I literally had an itty bitty strip of paper left over from where I punched between the hearts. I save a lot of my scrap, but even this was too small to keep, so I tossed it. Later, while I was assembling these for my Stamp Club ladies, I thought of the itty bitty scrap and realized that there was still enough to punch the tiny hearts from the three heart punch. Recycling can be fun!

I made all of these (plus a few extras) over my lunch break. I am lucky enough to live close to work and so I came home on a day when the kids stayed for lunch and came up with this idea. It all started when I looked at the ginormous bag of chocolates that I bought at Costco and wondered how I was ever going to get through them all. At the one a day that I eat, this could be a lifetime supply. I guess the sentiment fits - so much chocolate, so little time!

Loving the new Glitter Paper!

I'm loving the new mini catalogue! The glitter paper is so easy to work with - no more going to work with sparkles on my face, and the Framed Tulips folder make it a breeze to create a WOW background. Tomorrow I'll post what I did with the scrap from the glitter paper.
