Connie Can Crop DT: Little St. Valentine's Gifts

Hi happy Scrappers,

This is my post for Connie Can Crop
 For this project  I made little St.Valentine's gifts for my children teachers:

I made these cute french fries tree boxes using the Heart Treat Box (Free SVG) file from this month challenge sponsor: 

Dreaming Tree!!

I used CTMH glitter and regular papers, some Teresa Collins papers, and some WeRMemories papers:

I also used LIQUID Glass to close the boxes, as it dies so quickly.

For the tags, I used a punch and stamp set from EK success, CTMH inks, and CTMH pink wool thread, and some Bazzil peach paper scraps from a different project: 

A closer look to the tags:

This file was supper easy to cut and even score using my Cricut Explorer.
I added some homemade cookies, I decorated as part of a class by my dear friend Paula Chavart:

I found these cool stumblers and added some goodies and my tags for my husband's MAs:

A closer look to the fries boxes without the goodies:

I hope you enjoy this project and visit me to see further pictures by tomorrow.

Want another chance to win!! Enter the monthly challenge at Connie Can Crop!!

I used our sponsor's free svg file for take-out box.

And used some of my remaining negative cuts for the tag:

The flower, the cloth-pin and sequin are from Connie's shop.

I used some old wedding stickers to embellish my tag.

And tons of liquid glass to glue the box together because of the glitter on the paper:

I added to studio G glitter glue to the center of the  flower and some of the glitter coming of from the paper to the rest of the flower.

Eureka Stamps Challenge #180 Feathers & Fur

Eureka Stamps Challenge theme this week is 

For my card this week I used 24002 Gorilla with Hearts and for the Inside  24001 Gorillya Valentine:

 I created this card for my son for St. Valentine's day. I used some watercolor pencils and a blending pen to color my gorilla. This is my first more successful time using this technique. I used a 6x6 paper pack from Latina Crafter.

I still needed some bling, but I could't find in my stash some red or pink Dazzles, so I used so silver ones and colored with this alcohol marker.

Here is a closer look at the finished image with accent hearts.

 For the inside, I used some picked raspberry (TH) distress inked sentiment and added some shimmer using a pink metallic pen.

I was inspired by the TE Share the Joy challenge sketch:
and adapted it for my the Eureka stamps digital image.

For the color combination, I was inspired by this month's Latina Crafter's twist:

I am also entering this challenge at Left of Center Creative Challenges: 

I hope you enjoy this card and leave some comments.
Have a wonderful week,

The already altered tag:
 lifting the organza fabric:
 The back using the digital images from Eureka stamps:   25401 Happy Birthday Vertical

 I used a small scallop circle cut from a scrap of the already printed  8603(543) Flower Background on white card stock from a previous project:

I used the alcohol markers to alter the circle, some white pilot pen for the balloons and to define the letters of my vertical sentiment.
The balloons were leftovers from a old sticker package.
 I distressed the back of the tag also using TH distressing ink:
