Can you believe that next week is Thanksgiving? Where has the year gone? I know, don't answer! Well, now it's getting close to crunch time for getting those Holiday gifts and cards made. One of my favorite products in the August-December Mini Catalog is the Heartwarming Hugs Suite. Oh my goodness! The coffee carrier and mini coffee cups are just the cutest thing ever. The coffee carrier is designed to hold two of our coffee cups or you … [Read more...] about Eat, Drink and Be Cozy
Welcome to our NEW AT SU! Blog hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who are Hoppin’ with creative paper crafting ideas to share with you. Today we are showcasing products from the August-December Stampin’ Up! Catalog. My project today uses one of the fabulous Rectangle Tins.

Honestly, I wasn't going to purchase the Poinsettia Place Suite. I was only going to get the Beaded Pearl embellishments. Then Stampin Up started their pattern paper sale on October 1st. And I decided I really kind of liked the pattern paper, specially on sale. So I added the paper to my cart. Then I realized that some of the dies in the stamp bundle actually cut out the poinsettias in the pattern paper. And... that was it. I ended up getting the … [Read more...] about Poinsettia Place
It's time to start ordering your Halloween craft supplies, if you haven't already. I love making small candy holders to share with family and friends. Our small 3x3" envelopes are the perfect size for the individual M&M packs of candy. I realize 3x3" cards are tough because they are too small to mail in the United States. And, it's such a small size to work with. However, they make an excellent treat holder if you need something relatively … [Read more...] about Boo!
Happy Friday! The new Rectangle tins are going to be perfect for the Holidays. The tins are sized big enough to hold credit card sized gift cards or cash of course. I've decorated this one for Autumn. When you make something like this, you want the paper wrap to be taped to itself, rather than to the tin. This allows the recipient to slid the wrap off the tin, instead of ripping it apart. Remember to have your paper seam be on the top … [Read more...] about Wishing You Well
This year's Holiday Catalog is filled with tons of cute things to make for your treats. I love the mini coffee cups and the variety of tins, but today I'm focusing on the new Little Treat Box dies. This Little Treats box is tiny. I took it with me to shop for candy at the store. It doesn't fit larger candy like the mini M&Ms or Skittles bags. It does fit two of the Hershey Nuggets in it side-by-side standing upright. Or the Hershey … [Read more...] about Little Treats Bundle
One of the best things about visiting Hawaii is all the fresh pineapple. It's so plentiful and it is one of my favorites fruits. The Tropical Oasis Suite has the cutest products to celebrate Summer. One of my favorite dies from the In The Tropics dies is the pineapple die. I love the size of it. The pineapple is about 4.5" tall. With the size of the pineapple, I thought this would make a really cute treat holder. Unfortunately, the set … [Read more...] about Aloha!
Just to give you a little history, I've been blogging regularly since 2013. Seven years! Can you believe it? And in seven years, technology changes quite a bit. I knew about six months ago I was going to need to do a major update on my blog and hosting, but put it off until after the Holidays. Then of course, major plumbing problems, house construction, etc, and here it is April. But it is finally done! I am so excited for the new graphics and … [Read more...] about Welcome To My New Space!
