Happy Friday and Happy Valentine's Day! Today is the day we celebrate our love for each other. Typically, Valentine's is celebrated by couples, but why not share the love with your friends? These pillow boxes are just the right size to give your friends a couple pieces of chocolate or a small gift. Last weekend, I made some of these Valentine's treats to pass out at a Demonstrator event that I attended. I love making treat holders … [Read more...] about Happy Valentine’s Day

I just realized we are now more than halfway through the month of January and Valentine's is just a few weeks away. I'm trying to get some projects made quickly to share with you. One of my favorite products from the new Occasions/Spring Catalog are these cute heart-shaped tins. These tins are food safe and you can bake in them. I filled mine with candy since I didn't really have time to do any baking this weekend. I decorated … [Read more...] about I Had This Lion Around
I am so excited that I get to see some crafty friends tomorrow. I will be at the Just Crop Retreat in Fullerton and I am so looking forward to seeing all the ladies. I love sharing make and takes with them and all the fun new products every time a new Stampin Up Catalog comes out. Sale-A-Bration is also one the best times of the year because of the freebies you earn with a qualifying purchase. This Valentine's Treat Box is one of my make … [Read more...] about Love You Lots

Anyway, here is today's project, which can easily be whipped up so quick. I used the stamps, paper, and heart doilies from the From My Heart Suite and combined them with the Printed Cellophane Bags from the Birthday Bonanza Suite.Just fill the bags with candy … [Read more...] about How about a quickie?
And you bought all gift cards instead of presents. So now you're wondering how to make them look fabulous instead of giving them away in a cheesy plain envelope. I've got just the solution. Grab a stack of our Gold Mini Pizza boxes and get wrapping. These gold boxes are so pretty and they really don't need a lot of decoration. I like to wrap mine with a band of pattern paper. Then all of my decorations get attached to the pattern paper and not … [Read more...] about You waited til the last minute…
Winter is coming... I know other parts of the Country are already buried under lots of snow, but here in SoCal, that means the temperature drops below 65' and we'll get a few days of rain. It's expensive to live in Southern California, but that comes with the promise that the only snow we'll see is on the tv. That doesn't mean that I don't enjoy a beautiful snowy winter scene and I couldn't resist the stamp set Snow Front. Snow Front is … [Read more...] about All Is Quiet on the Snow Front
For each OnStage event, I like to make a little gift for the ladies in my downline group that are attending. They get a little box with some goodies in it that will add a little something to their day. I like to use our mini pizza boxes because they are fairly sturdy and travel well. They are also just the right size for a few small goodies. This time the box included a lip balm, a package of cashews, chocolates, and some page … [Read more...] about Downline Gifts
