Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the Scrappy Moms April Release Party!!

I'm so excited to be the Guest Designer for Scrappy Moms Stamps April 2012 Release! All week long(April. 20th - April 26th) the Scrappy Moms Stamps Design Team and I will be showcasing the TWO BRAND NEW, JUST RELEASED Stamp Sets. There will be TONS of inspiration and maybe a prize or two along the way, so you won't want to miss it!!!

For today's project, I used the BRAND NEW "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" Stamp Set - now available for purchase.

This set is filled with FUN and GIRLY phrases, perfect for your Best Friends!

What girl doesn't like Chocloate, even if its just a little piece?

I used the Cricut Lite Sweet Shop Cartridge to make this Chocolate Candy Bar Shaped Card. All layers were cut at 5.5".

Using the Cricut Craft Room program, I manipulated the layers a bit to have the "Chocolate Square" pieces pop-up from the "Chocolate Bar". The wrapper was also cut several times to make it stand out more.

I wrapped some "Hot Pink" Crinkled Ribbon from My Craft Spot around the Chocolate Bar and created a triple-loop bow.

The tag was cut from the Cricut Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge and stamped with the "Good Friends and Chocolate..." sentiment from the JUST RELEASED Scrappy Moms Stamps' "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" Stamp Set - available for purchase now.

To finish it all off, I topped the Sentiment Tag with some "Strawberry Cupcake" Trendy Twine - available at My Craft Spot - and a Mulberry Paper Rose. I added some "Frosted Lace" Stickles to the Rose.

The inside of the card was left blank for a more personal message.

I hope you have enjoyed my project using the "Good Friends and Chocolate make everything better!" Phrase from the Scrappy Moms Stamps' "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!" Stamp Set.

Please be sure to check back in on Tuesday, April 24th for another project using ONE of these TWO BRAND NEW, JUST RELEASED Stamp Sets. Now, head on over to Scrappy Moms Stamps for more inspiration!
