I. Break Time
This is Izabella! Doesn't she look comfy blurfing away on her computer? What is blurfing, you ask? Why it's blog surfing! We all do it, and now we have a cool name for it and a cool digi image from S2G!
Here is a closer view of Izabella. She comes with three sentiments. I gave her a cup of Chai tea and chocolate brown lounging pajamas. I placed pop dots under Izabella and her chair for extra dimension. All of the DP is digi paper from S2G's new "Indulgence" line. The little teacups on the medallion were cut from the same DP covering the tote. The tote is from Papertrey Ink and it is called "Take-Along-Tote. I added Stickles dots to the front pocket and around the edge of the medallion.
Here is a side view of the tote. It also has an inside pocket.
Pictured above, is the tote fully opened. I added Stickles dots to the inside pocket, too. The Chocolate and Indulgence medallions were cut from the new Indulgence line of papers. I then cut Nestie scalloped ovals to place under the medallions. I used a MS lace punch to make a border for the pockets. I punched holes at the top and threaded Hobby Lobby ribbon through the holes to make a closure.
Did you guess what's inside the tote? My favorite drink, Chai tea, in bags, are in the front pocket. I placed four inside, but six would have fit easily. The inside pocket holds Ghiradelli dark chocolate squares with raspberry filling! YUUUMMMMM! Don't run off just yet, I have two more posts featuring some of my favorite "Indulgences"!
I just LOVE this image and the sentiment! I laughed out loud when I saw it! The sentiment and two others come with the digi image "Chocolate Dreams" (pictured in the post following this one.) I again used DP from the S2G Indulgence line! You have got to try it! It's so pretty!I embossed the paper using the Provo Craft folders, Swirls, and Circles. I added Black and pink Stickles for sparkle. (Double click to get a sparklier view.) CS is Bazzill. Flowers are "Got Flowers", and rhinestones are from my stash.
As soon as I saw the "Desserts" digi image, I knew what I had to do: whip up some "Desserts"! I wanted to showcase the new "Indulgence" line, and show how versatile the papers are! This is what I made.
The cupcake is a Basic Grey "Do Me a Favor" that I altered. I added a ribbon and a tissue paper "icing" rose to the top.
Next I needed cake! The template above is my own creative invention "Cake Stack" COPYRIGHT© 2010 Cat Darling. CS is Papertrey Ink and DP is again from the "Indulgence" collection. I just love the colors! They were perfect for my "Desserts"! After assembling, I added a Fiskar's punched border, curled "chocolate", Organza ribbon (my favorite), and an Indulgence tag.
Now it's time for pie! I also designed this original template: "Pie, Oh My" COPYRIGHT© 2010 Cat Darling. The scalloped crust was cut from S2G "Indulgence paper. I punched a border, added satin ribbon, and "chocolate" curls. All of the templates open. Imagine them filled with donut holes and Cakesters! No picture. :( I had to go to the dentist yesterday, and again today, so use your imagination for these yummy treats.
Luscious and NO calories!
I have another post!
III. Chocolate Dreams
This is one of the digital images that you could win if your name is the one chosen from the mystery DT blog! I don't know which blog it is, so leave a comment on each one so you can be in the draw! This digi comes with three sentiments and the little "chocolate dream". All of the DP is from the "Indulgence" line. The basket is a template from Papertrey Ink called "Pretty Petal Pocket".
The hearts and medallions were cut from the S2G DP. Bands around the middle are Hobby Lobby ribbon.
The basket is a template from Papertrey Ink called "Pretty Petal Pocket". I made large brown hearts for the front and back of the basket and then decorated with smaller hearts. It's quite roomy inside, and the three "pillows" were a perfect fit!
Are you wondering what's inside? M and M Premium Chocolate Raspberry Almonds! Soooo Gooood!
I hope you've enjoyed my projects using the new S2G Indulgence Collection! Please leave a comment and visit the amazing eye candy the rest of the team has for you! Jennifer Scull's blog is next on the tour!Good luck in the contests! Winners will be announced Thursday, Jan. 28 at the S2G Blog!
