Happy Fri-Yay! I'm particularly happy this Friday since we are heading into a long weekend here in the US. It's always fabulous having an extra day off work. Today I'm sharing a project using one of our Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes. I love these little boxes for gift giving. The decoration for this box is all attached to the wrap around the outside of the box. This allows the person to open the box without ripping apart the pretty … [Read more...] about Harvest Meadow
I promise I won't get carried away with Halloween quite this early, but I had one more treat holder to share. On Monday, I shared the little 3x3" pouches. Today, I'm sharing those fabulous Tombstone Treat boxes in the July-December Catalog. These boxes are pretty good size (3.5 x 5 x 1.25"). Definitely bigger than I thought they would be. I just love the little ghost from the Cute Halloween stamp set and used him on this box as well. The … [Read more...] about Hey, Boo
If you've been in a retail store in the last couple of weeks, you probably noticed Fall and Halloween decor have hit the shelves. Did you know there are only 69 more days until Halloween? I know, it sounds like that is so far away. But, it really isn't. Just think about how quickly 2021 has flown by already. And since it's Monday and I thought we could all do with a treat today, today's project is a small 3x3" treat holder. It holds candy, … [Read more...] about Treat Yourself
Continuing with sharing projects from our recent Demonstrator meeting... today I'm featuring a project designed by Lyndi. I love these cute little critters from the Peekaboo Farm stamp set. This set features five different animals that peek out from behind this wall. Or you could have them peeking out from behind some other object as well. Lyndi's project is actually a small gift box, using one of our Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. These boxes are … [Read more...] about Peekaboo!
Today I have two more You're a Peach projects to share with you... the mini jam jar and a 3x3" card. Yes, that is one tiny card. These are nice for tucking into a gift bag to go with a gift. And with the small size, you can keep the note on the inside very short. Okay, let's talk about these mini jam jars. These are seriously just the cutest little things. They are food safe and I've heard they hold about a quarter cup of liquid or cream. … [Read more...] about More Peaches Please
Do you ever have a weekend where you feel like you actually got a lot accomplished off the to-do list? I felt that way Sunday evening... got lots of little chores around the house done this weekend. Plus, major accomplishment, I finally started tackling the disaster that is my garage. When we had our slab leak last year, the garage became the default catch-all place for boxes when they came back from storage. I worked really hard last year to get … [Read more...] about Sweet Peaches
Stampin Up does a great job with floral stamps. Every time they come out with another one, I tell myself I don't need another floral stamp set. And then somehow, someway it makes its way into my cart anyway. I can't explain... it just mysteriously happens. :) One of the prettiest floral sets in the January to June Catalog is the Fine Art Floral Suite. This Suite has everything... stamps, dies, pattern paper, acetate sheets, sparkly ribbon, and … [Read more...] about Fine Art Floral Suite
I wanted to design a quick treat holder that would be inexpensive to make. I came up with this small chocolate "book". This is super easy to make and costs very little in supplies. Start with a piece of card stock that is 4.25" x 3.5". Score it down the center on the 4.25" side. Cut a piece of pattern paper to 3.5" by 1 7/8th". Glue down with tape runner. The ribbon wraps around the outside of the "book". Stamp your heart on a piece of white … [Read more...] about A Little Something…
