Sweet Tooth:)

Hello, friends:}


I'm back with another Sweet Stamp Shop creation. It's my day over on the SSS blog--so be sure to stop by there and leave some love!


I created two projects using the Sweet Tooth stamp set. For my first project, I was thinking of my nephew, Jackson. He is 5 1/2 and should be losing some teeth....or maybe soon? I knew that the little tooth image in this set would be perfect for a "tooth keeper" envelope album. It was fairly simple to make--I die cut the envelopes and put them together; stamped the image on the pocket for the tooth and journaling card; paper pieced a decoration for the front and cut some banners (to write the date when tooth fell out or was pulled out). Easy! I punched some holes and put them on a binder ring. Double EASY! OHHH! I just thought about how the pocket could hold the tooth and maybe a picture of the happy kid without a tooth! If the pocket is too small--it could be put in the envelope! FUN! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
The date when the tooth fell out (or was pulled out) goes on the banner.

 I only decorated a couple of the envelopes--I put all the pieces inside each envelope so that the family can decorate it/journal/etc. together. 
 Just a closer view of the pieces. 


I also wanted to make something different with the gum ball machine. I thought it would be fun to make some candy decorations....so I wrapped some paper around a candy bar, added some hand-dyed seam binding, paper pieced the gum ball machine, and added a sentiment. Triple EASY! I love how the gum balls are holiday colors! FUN!
I apologize for the horrible pic--that paper from SEI is metallic and super hard to photograph-but SUPER pretty! 

That's it for me today--be sure to stop by the Sweet Stamp Shop blog for more info on this card and to see what the owner of SSSNicole, has been up to! And if you have some extra time, please stop by our YouTube channel (I added a crafty tip video last week), our FB page, follow us on Twitter  and link up any creations you have made using SSS images on Flickr


Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:)

So stinkin' cute. What a clever idea. Jackson will love this. :)

These projects are just darling, Sav! I love the idea of having little envelopes to put each tooth in! I saved all of my oldest sons teeth in a little satin bag. When he discovered that there was no such thing as the tooth fairy, he got a kick out of seeing all of his little teeth in a bag (minus the one he swallowed when he bit into an apple). Your nephew will cherish this when he gets older. :)

Those tooth envelopes are brilliant, Sav! And the candy wrapper is total fun.

Oh my goodness gracious gravy - how adorable is this! Too bad my babies have already lost all their baby teeth. Good thang, huh, since they're 24 and 29.
