CD Holders {for my cloggers}

My clogging class is getting ready for a competition, and the girls have been working SO HARD!!  To help them practice at home, I made each of them a CD with the songs we're dancing to, as well as a cute CD Holder to put them in.

Here's the front:

The CD peeking out...

And the back. 

They turned out so cute, I had to make one for myself too!! 

**THIS TUTORIAL was used to make the CD Holders.

My Spin on the Pin {2.10.12}

With Valentine's Day inching closer and closer, I've been on the lookout for some fun valentines ideas.   This Pin inspired me to make these valentines for my kids' classmates...

The bigger size is approx. 4.25"x 5.50".  I used my Printmaster program to create the valentines, printed them on white cardstock, and then hand cut the mustaches from black cardstock and glued them on.  The Hershey's Miniatures are wrapped in a 1.5"x3" piece of patterned paper, and secured to the valentine with a glue dot. 

After I made a few of the bigger size, I decided to make a smaller version.  These ones are approximately 2.75"x4.25".
 
I think I like the smaller size better...what do you think?

There will be no linky party this week.  I'm thinking of cutting those down to every other Friday so more people will have a chance to link up a project.  Does that work, or would you prefer to have the linky every week?  Your thoughts would be much appreciated!

My Spin on the Pin {2.03.12}

I'm the type of Mom who LOVES to show off pictures of my kids.  The problem?  I keep forgetting to put their pictures in my purse.  I pinned this mini book with the intent of filling it with pictures of my little darlings, and keeping it in my purse to have ready to pull out in an instant!

Here's My Spin on the Pin...


There are a total of 12 pages, the perfect amount for pictures of my 5 kids, 2 dogs, and I'll even add a few of my cute husband in there!   

I haven't quite gotten around to filling it up with pictures just yet, but I'm working on it! 

This Mini Fold Book would be a great gift!  I could see it as a Valentine's Day gift for that special someone, or as a Mother's Day/Father's Day gift.  There are lots of possibilities!!

Now, let's see YOUR spin on the pin!!  Link up any project you've made that's been inspired by a pin on Pinterest! The linky will remain open until Midnight on Wednesday, February 8th.

Happy Pinning!
