All Occasion Treat Boxes

As I have mentioned…I’ve been very busy making items for our church craft fair and for a show I’m doing for realtors as “pop by” gifts. Today I’d like to share with you an item I think is a real winner.

Ch day 30

These are just so cute and hold 4 Ferrero Rocher candies. Isn’t that a nice treat. I’m decorating for Christmas gifts but I’ve also made a few in florals. I got the idea from Dannie Graves and I changed it a bit. I skipped the second solid color card stock and just used the DSP. Here’s the link to her video tutorial:

I think these make a lovely gift for any occasion.

Happy Stamping!


Happy Birthday and a Gift for YOU!

Ch day 25

Happy Birthday! Today is my birthday so I’m giving a gift to my wonderful customers. If you place a $50.00 (or more) order between today (October 11) and Saturday (October 17) I will give you either a pack of Pearl Basic Jewels or Rhinestone Basic Jewels – your choice!

For those of you attending classes this week, this order will count towards your Free Class!

I appreciate all of you and your business so I want to give you a little something extra.

Happy Stamping!

Flower Shop Returns

Ch day 21

Here’s a card I re-did for the 30 day Create Challenge. I love this technique and of course the stamp set Flower Shop with the Pansy Punch. As you can see there is a bit of fussy cutting but it is so worth it for the end result. Sorry…I just can’t give up my retired Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Happy Stamping!

Some quick Thank You notes

ch day 20

I really love the stamp set “Work of Art”. It is so versatile and “quick”! Just let you imagination go with color combos. I used Fabulous Four SS for the sentiment. The Project Life Corner Punch and the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch were used for the bottom edges…it softens it all a bit.

Just a quick post to show you what I have been working on.

Have a great weekend and Happy Stamping!

Candy Pocket

Here’s an adorable little pocket to hold a Ghiradelli Chocolate Square. These are great at craft fairs, stocking stuffers and at the table setting.

Candy pocket

I got this idea from Becky Roberts and I changed it a bit. For the video tutorial.

I used DSP to make the large scallop circle from the Circles Collection Framelits. To make the flower I sponged the edges of flowers from the Pansy Punch and Petite Petals Punch. The leaves are from the new Festive Flower Builder Punch. A green Candy Dot adds the finishing touch.

I plan to make several of these for my upcoming church craft fair. I’ll also be making some for my Leisure Ladies (retired teachers) group’s next event.

These are quite simple and fun to make…try it!

Happy Stamping!

Christmas Bottle Tag

Sorry I haven’t posted much lately – I’ve been in the creating mode! I hope to be posting at least twice a week now (probably more)!

Let’s begin the holidays with some bottle tags!

Bottle Tag 1.1

Bottle Tag 2.2

I used the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch and the Embellished Ornaments/Delicate Ornament Thinlits Bundle. I think I’ll be making a lot of these! Keep in mind…they don’t have to go on just a wine bottle! I used the Decorative Label Punch to stamp the sentiment on. That sentiment also came from a new Holiday stamp set called Lots of Joy.

Happy Stamping!
