Today I'm sharing my last card for now with the Trucking Along Bundle. This is also one I used for recent customer thank you cards. This stamp set has several different options for things to go in the bed of the truck, like the flowers, a stack of gifts, and a tree. I used the pretty flowers for todays card. The flowers are two different stamps - the outline and then the fill color. This allows for easy stamping without having to do everything in … [Read more...] about One More For The Road
I'm back today with a card using that mini truck from the Trucking Along bundle. I added one of the smallest pumpkins from the Pick of the Patch set and it barely fits in the truck bed. The Pick of the Patch bundle has a coordinating punch, but this particular pumpkin doesn't fit the punch so I had to hand cut it out. This is one of the cards I used for my September thank you cards. Every customer who places an order or subscribes to Paper … [Read more...] about It’s The Great Pumpkin!
One of the Online Exclusive bundles that was released a couple months ago is the Trucking Along stamp and punch bundle. This is the first chance that I've had to use the stamps and punch. Although when I ordered it, I knew I would have a make a 3D truck with this set. Well, it turns out that this makes a really tiny truck. The truck is 1.25" tall by 2.25" long and .5" wide. I could have made the truck wider by just using a wider piece … [Read more...] about Trucking Along

One of my all time favorite treat holders is this matchbook M&M holder. So simple, yet so cute. You staple the M&M bag inside and then decorate the matchbook. This is what it looks like open. I used the Happy Halloween strip to hide the staple. I had fun decorating the front with the pumpkin jack-o-laterns. The matchbook is so small it doesn't need a lot. What do you do for Halloween? Do you pass out … [Read more...] about Matchbook M&Ms
