Happiness Surrounds Congratulations

Have you checked out the products in this months Snowflake Showcase Promotion? These products are amazing and so much more than just snowflakes.  Check out this super cute card I made with the Happiness Surrounds set.  I love these colors and they're some that I would have never paired up.  I used Berry Burst, Mint Macaron and Granny Apple Green.  

They're an unlikely trio but they seem to work together.  The framelits in the Snowflake Showcase are pretty amazing and again so much more than snowflakes.  They come with all these little leaf and sprig pieces too.  These items are only available for a limited time or while supplies last!  Don't miss your chance to get them before they're gone!

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!

Christmas 10 Week Countdown Week 5

Over the next 10 weeks I'll share a new and fun Christmas idea all the way up to December 18, only a week away from Christmas!  Of course you can adapt all of these ideas to any holiday or occasion. Today's super cute box is the perfect size box for a truffle or other sweet treat!  This little box measures 2"x2" and is 1 1/4" tall.  
I used the Festive Farmhouse DSP to add a belly band around it.  I added a tag using the Takeout Treats Stamp Set.  I punched out the greeting with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch then layered it onto a 1 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.  I added a little Burlap Ribbon and added the entire thing a Pretty Label Punch on the belly band.
 In my box I have one amazing and delicious Scotchmallow from See's Candy.  You could put any of their candies in this box.  The belly band comes off and the box opens from the top. These boxes are small enough you could make a bunch of them easily for a party, class treats or any other occasion!

To make this box you'll need a piece of cardstock that measures 8 1/2"x5 3/4".  On the 8 1/2" side score at 2", 4", 6" and 8".  On the 5 3/4" side score at 2", 3 1/4" and 5 1/4".  You'll trim along the score lines as indicated in the picture.  The pink tab on the side indicates where to put your adhesive.  Once you have that tab adhered, the bottom folds up with adhesive on the final piece and the top folds in.  Super cute!

Sunshine Wishes Hello Friend

One of my favorite framelit collections is the Sunshine Wishes set.  It's been around a while but I love the images and the greetings that you can cut out and add to any card.  This card is so cute and easy to make.  The sparkle from the glimmer paper makes this card so special!
I cut the heart from our Rose Glimmer Paper.  I love how it stands out against the Soft Suede background.  To add a little more interest I embossed it with the Tufted Embossing Folder.  One of my favorites!  I added a quick greeting using the Happiness Surrounds set and finished the cards with some pearls and linen thread.  Really cute and fun!

Happiness Surrounds Class

On Tuesday night I had a class featuring the amazing products in the Snowflake Showcase Promotion. We specifically focused on the Happiness Surrounds Set, Snowfall Thinlits and the White Velveteen Paper.  All are incredible products but only around this month.  Don't wait!  Get them today!

The Happiness Surrounds set is probably my favorite thing in this suite of products.  It's a true year round stamp set, with greetings that will work for any day of the year or any event.
The Snowfall Thinlits are amazing and detailed and they also can be used for events other than Christmas.  The thinlits also coordinate with lots of the floral images in the Happiness Surrounds set so even if you don't do snowflakes, the framelits are still a must have!
I also love all the backgrounds in this set.  The medallion on this card is beautiful along with the borders.  If you haven't gotten these products yet head to my online store and shop for them today!

Christmas 10 Week Countdown Week 4

Over the next 10 weeks I'll share a new and fun Christmas idea all the way up to December 18, only a week away from Christmas!  Of course you can adapt all of these ideas to any holiday or occasion. Today I have a cute treat bag, that is easy, quick and fun to make! We all need quick and cute projects during the holiday season!  These sweet bags would be great party favors, sweet surprises on a co-workers desk or a sweet treat for a teacher.  I started with our 3"x6" gusseted bags and I added a piece of DSP inside to help shape the bag and lets face it make it stinkin' cute!  
The DSP is cut to 8"x2 7/8" scored on the 8" side at 2" and 3 3/4".  It fits perfectly in the bag!  I filled my treat bag with some yummy caramels! I tied the bag from top to bottom using our Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and added a quick tag featuring the Another Wonderful Year set.  I punched it out with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and layered it onto a 2" Circle of Shaded Spruce.  So cute and fun!  Join me next week for week 5 of the countdown!

Double Nuggets

I love making little treat boxes, they're one of my favorite things to make.  When I saw this tutorial from Julie I knew I had to make it!  This sweet little box is so cute and so easy to make!  You can check out Julie's video here for instructions on how to make this box.  I used Lovely Lipstick Cardstock for my box.      
I wrapped the nuggets in the Broadway Bound DSP.  For the outside of the box I stamped a greeting from the Itty Bitty Greetings and used the Blossom Builder punch to make a sweet flower with the Subtles DSP.  To finish it I used a Gold Faceted Gem in the center.

Thanks for looking, see you soon!

Halloweeen 10 Countdown week 10

Happy Halloween! We're at the end of our countdown!  It's been so much fun sharing so many fun Halloween projects with you.  I have one last one to share.  I love how this came out!!!  I used Mango Melody, Basic Black and some DSP from the Broadway Bound Pack.   

 The pumpkin is made with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Three ovals layered up makes the perfect Pumpkin. I hand cut the stem and added lots of Shaded Spruce leaves and Gold Glimmer sprigs with the Leaf and Sprig punch.
Inside is a fun notepad. I added a pencil holder with a simple loop of cardstock. So fun!!!  The notepad I found at Target in the Dollar Spot.  To make your own you'll need a piece of cardstock that measures 8" x 8 1/2" on the 8 1/2" side score at 4" and 4 3/8". Easy peasy!

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!

Christams 10 Week Countdown Week 3

Over the next 10 weeks I'll share a new and fun Christmas idea all the way up to December 18, only a week away from Christmas!  Of course you can adapt all of these ideas to any holiday or occasion.  Today I have a fun Card Caddy To share.  I love giving cards as gifts and even better when I can package them up in cute fun ways!  This caddy is fun and easy to put together.  You'll need 2 pieces of cardstock for this one cut to 6"x6", this is the back, I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut a handle out.  The other piece of cardstock you'll need is 9"x5" on the 9" side score at 1/2, 1 1/2", 7 1/2 and 8 1/2" on the 5" Side score at  1/2 and 1 1/2". Check out the video below to see how the caddy was assembled.
The cards that it holds are really cute!  I used Silver Foil edge cards and envelopes and paired them with the Signs of Santa Bundle.  The cards are all assembled the same.  I have 2 each of the 3 designs in the card caddy for a total of 6 cards.
 Six cards in the caddy is a very tight fit, however, I used LOTS of Dimensionals on mine.  I think if your cards had less Dimensionals you could easily fit 6 cards and envelopes in it.  Making it a wonderful gift!
You could even fill the caddy with thank you cards and give it as a gift for Christmas, we need lots of Thank You cards after Christmas.  Or if you have a friend or family member that loves to send Birthday cards fill it with birthday cards! Either way it's sure to make a great gift!
