Sweet Valentine~Pretzel Treats

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion 
Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a wonderful week....just a few more days until Valentine's Day~
Are you ready???
We will be spending it on a mini getaway with 3 other couples snowmobiling. We just got some fresh snow so hopefully the trails will be good and temps will stay decent. Fingers crossed.....Can't wait!

Today I am sharing a yummy Valentine's Day treat for Arya, Lacy and Ailey's daycare....about 60 of these. They are really easy to make and everyone seems to love them~Yum!
After dipping these yummy pretzels and adding some sprinkles, I packaged them up. I made a sweet little tag and tied them on with sheer ribbon from my stash.
The elephant is a print and cut image from the Silhouette Store #115674. I printed them, then cut and added foam adhesive for some dimension onto a tag. The tag is My Creative Time's~Just Tag Dies. I stamped the sentiment in the corner with My Creative Time's~Teeny Tag Greetings stamp set. 
Cute, quick and yummy!!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion 
Happy Sunday Everyone!
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend~
Today I am sharing a pretty card I made using some products I recently purchased and just now getting time to use them. I went a little outside my box with different techniques but so glad I did. A few things I learned along the way, a few things I would change or do a little different but overall I really like how this turned out!

I have been inspired by a few amazing and talented blogger friends with all these crazy techniques, textures, paints etc. So, thank you Lisa at A Mermaids CraftsMona at Cupcake Creations and Pamela at My Little Craft Things for inspiring me to try something new. For those of you who do not know these ladies, be sure to visit their blogs, you will be amazed with their creativity and stunning projects!!

I started with the Nesting Square Doilies Die for the card base and layer of my card. The next panel is My Creative Time's~Stitched Squares Inside and Out which is water colored using Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet and Fired Brick distressed inks. I lightly misted it with water and let it dry. I then added a layer of texture using a Tim Holtz layering stencil and Ranger texture paste. I heat embossed around the edges with Fantasy Silver from Sweet Stamps for a sparkly look.
I layered cheesecloth, then tucked in Memory Box Chandra Stems with an enamel embellishment to the center. I layered a pretty piece of lace along with a border with My Creative Time's~Fun Stitched Edge die. The heart is My Creative Time's~Heart to Heart Love Frames Die. The inside frame is dipped in Top Boss, then Shabby White Embossing Enamel as are the larger butterflies and heat embossed. The gorgeous butterflies are from My Creative Time's~Pretty Butterflies and Dragonfly Die set. The little butterflies are embossed again in the Fantasy Silver embossing powder for a shimmery look.
The flowers are from Recollection, dipped in Angel Dust. The pretty ribbon is Whipped Cream crinkle ribbon from DL.ART and the little button is Wee Petites from Die Versions embossed in Shabby White Embossing Enamel.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Frilly and Funky  Challenge~Enjoy Your Embossing

Happy Valentine's Day!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion 
Hi Everyone and Happy Tuesday! 
I have a quick and simple little Valentine treat to share today for the little kiddo's on your list. I used stamps and dies from My Creative Time for this project.  They were very easy to create and are fun for giving just a little something to someone on this day. I didn't do a lot of extra details since the little ones are going to just rip into them anyway.
Great for classmates, teachers, etc.  
I started with a base of 3 1/2 x 4 1/2. I scored it at 1 7/8 and 2 5/8 and wrapped it around the box of candy hearts. The gray panel is 1 1/2 x 3 1/4 and embossed with a swirl folder from Darice. Before I layered that in place, I wrapped a piece of twine around it and tied a bow for it to close. 

The cute doily is created with My Creative Time's Bunch of Stitched Doily Die. The little heart is from the Carved Heart stamp/die set and popped with foam tape.  The sentiment is stamped with the Teeny Tag Holidays stamp set. 
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) DL.ART February Linky~Anything Goes
2.) My Sheri Crafts Challenge #174 Be My Valentine (Use pink, white or red)
3.) Little Scrap Pieces Show if Off Saturday
4.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #123 Anything Goes

Craft Room Makeover

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone!
Happy Monday~I hope you had a great weekend!
Can you believe it's February already? Wow, I seriously do not know where the time goes?!

Well. I thought I would take a few minutes and post the progress being made in my little craft room. I have had a few friends asking me to share...so, here you go :)
My old craft room was a similar design with the exception of the higher counter.  I did gain a little extra room in the cabinets on the high counter and in the corners of the room. The opposite side of the high counter also has room for a high stool/drafting chair if needed for Arya (Granddaughter) when she comes to craft. We added additional lighting as well as a spot for taking photos of  my finished projects.  My closet had additional shelving added to make this area more functional as well. I have done a LOT of purging, cleaning and re-organizing. I am happy to say I feel really good about my craft space.

I do have a little more labeling of bins to do. The top shelving about window is where my Cricut cartridge boxes will be stored. I have the booklets and cartridges stored, labeled in plastic snap bins and organized alphabetically for easy access. I have some decorating to finish up along with a magnetic/chalk board I'd like to make for a empty wall I have when first entering into the room. Other than that, I am excited to start creating again!

Thanks for stopping by!
Leave me a comment...I would love to know what you think. Also, looking for any suggestions on decorating tips/idea's for this space~
