fresh idea friday with eryn...creating "pretty" gifts....

HELLO!!  It's Eryn posting today with a FRESH IDEA!!
{well, maybe it's not "fresh" but it is an idea!} ;)

I decided to put my {ippity} stamps to work and create some "pretty" gifts for my friends & family...


I uesd the LIVE LAUGH LOVE stamp from the, Simply Home set to create this first one.
I like to add additional charms when I wear these....I love the BE YOU one on this one.
{I actully cut the stamp apart to do this...remember Michelle's tip about cuttin your stamps?}

Here are those BEAUTIFUL Butterflies from the kit What Matters Most...
oh and as I type this I am thinking about all the other {ippity} stamps that will be fun to that MUSIC background...hmmmm, thinking...thinking...thinking!  ;)

Just a quick pic of the back.

These were so hard to take a photo of...
that glare takes away from the "cuteness" of them! " :)
But I thought a little set of MAGNETS would be FUN as well...using those same butterflies from What Matters Most.

A wonderful co-worker of mine had this quote posted on her facebook page the other day...
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

ENJOY your weekend!

  10. Eryn, these are adorable!
    I also would like to know where you purchased the clear squares?
    I have some one inch I think they are called memory tiles, but these look thicker and I like the look better. Have seen the round, although the ones I have found are never a perfect circle.
    Do you have a good place to buy these or are you finding them at your Micheals?
    Have a great week!

    P.S. I won the IHHC18 ( i think it was 18!?),and did e-mail my info on that tuesday,but have not received the handle yet...should I have?
