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!
I seriously over-estimated my capabilities in getting a new project made and ready to post for today. I'm still surrounded by boxes and piles of craft supplies in my studio. In the meantime, I will leave you with one of my favorite projects so far from the Spring Catalog. I just love this adorable little lion from the Birthday Bonaza Suite. He's just the cutest little love. These foil heart treat holders are still available to … [Read more...] about I’ve Got Nothing…
We're now half way through March and Easter isn't that far off. No, really. I figured there's no time like the present, getting started on those Easter treats. Today's project is a matchbook treat holder. I couldn't decide what color to use, so I made this in both the blue and the purple. Usually, I make these like a traditional matchbook you see in a restaurant. This time, I made the small side on top. You can see what I mean here … [Read more...] about Easter Is Around The Corner
