SVG Cutting File Love Challenge

Hello everyone! I have a cute valentine to show you today!
I made this M&M treat stick to submit to the SVG Cutting Files Love challenge!
I used a Jaded Blossom 1x8 clear bag, and the stamp set LOVE BUNNY, as well as the new TREAT TAG DIE.
I used the cutest little bunny from SVG Cutting Files called SWEET BABY BUNNY
As soon as I saw this sweet little bunny I saw this treat in my head! I am so happy it turned out just how I imagined! I love these files because of the base that comes with the cut........and  more importantly because the owner Ann is a very generous and sweet lady!
You can link your project HERE !
Happy Valentine's Day!

Now if you're here from Ashley then you're in the right place, if you're just passing through start HERE at the beginning because you don't want to miss the awesome projects! :0)
If you missed my projects this week here is a picture!
So remember earlier in the week I said that Java Time was my favorite stamp set this release!? Well here is why!! :0)
All the little sentiments fit in the the cup that the cutie is holding AND on the bottoms of all the candies!!! Oh yeah--and the coffee beans fit too!!!

Take a look at my project to see what I mean:

See how those little sentiments fit PERFECTLY on the bottoms! They all fit in the 3/4" punch!

I made this coffee mug using a template I found HERE. It gave very good instructions and it was easy to put together!

I used a circle shape from the Silhouette Store for the circle layers tag.
and ALL the stamps came from Jave Time!

In the coffee mug is a cone bag filled with Hershey Kisses!

I topped it off with a little NEW Pink Midnight TRENDY TWINE!
And please note,  Bunny Poop Revamped is NOT included in the February Stamp Release package 
We decided to revamp this set, since a lot of you may already have it, we left it out of the package. So if you want to purchase it make sure to ADD it to your cart
We also have a freebie for the first 65 customers that spend $45 or more (not including shipping) (and this set is not available for purchase!)

Easter-ish Jaded Blossom Release Thursday!

Oh My! I am super excited to share this new release from Jaded Blossom with you today!
Take a look at this one!!!

I just love how this project turned out...It was so fun to make!
I have to admit...I am not a coffee drinker. BUT--after making today's project (and staying up a little late the night before!) I decided to give this drink a try...and I am hooked!!!
I cut the holder from the Silhouette Store. It is a file to hold a milk carton..but the Frappuccino bottle fit perfectly!
The tag is the new Treat Tag Die with a tulle & Trendy Twine bow.
I attached a Curly Die to the front and ALL the stamps you see are from the Jave Time set!
I think this is my favorite set this release...but I don't know tomorrow's is pretty awesome too! You will have to stop back to see it tomorrow!
You do not want to miss the AMAZING Jave Time projects that the Design Team has made! They are all on the Jaded Blossom Blog!
