Lots of chances to win Heart Blog Candy






There will be mulitple winners for today's prizes! One winner will win these Target birthday stamps and two winners will each win 3 booking stamp sets from CTMH. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post.

My blogoversary is coming up the first week in June and I will be celebrating a month early since my baby is due the first week in June! Every day for the next two weeks I will be posting a new prize. To win that day's prize just leave a comment on that day's post by Wednesday, May 14. I will select the winners for all the prizes on Friday, May 16. You can win more than 1 prize! I will be using random.org to select the winners. If you are a subscriber, you may leave two comments on each day's post for an extra chance at winning.

For Mother's Day, I also made my mom a little coaster book. The directions for this can be found on Nichole Heady's website.


This is the cover of my book. I used 4/4 coasters and instead of trimming and sanding the corners - just use your corner punch on the papers and it will make a nice rounded corner that matches up with the coasters. The flowers is from K and Company and the papers I used are from Scenic Route.



The ribbon is SU and the Happy Mother's Day sentiment is also SU. The numbers are from a CTMH alphabet set - I think The Works is what it's called.


When the ribbon is untied, you can see that each side is a little accordian book.

Here is one side of the accordian pages with pictures of my cutie pie. This is the cutest project, VERY easy to do. The directions are super simple to follow and the end results are fabulous. Sometimes when I follow tutorials or projects online, they NEVER come out looking as good as the project I saw online but this one did!

Pin It Now!
