Someone Sweet

I have a new project to share today.  And I am totally in Love with this bundle of products.  Handing out little treats and Random Act of Kindness cards is a pleasure for me.  This new bundle makes this So Easy!!!  This is a Sneak Peek from the upcoming August – December Mini Catalog.

 

 

These cuties are made using the Little Treats Bundle.  Aren’t they adorable?  I used the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper.  I am already in love with these new colors. What makes these extra special ,is that there are colors for feminine and masculine.  They may be a tad on the “sweet” side for some guys, but Hey they contain chocolate!!

Here is a view of the inside:

 

 

These little holders will comfortably hold two Ghirardelli chocolates in regular size.  I chose to go with two of the Mini Chirardelli chocolates.  They fit just below the top of the little pocket, so it allows the top to pull together without a bit of a bump.

There is nothing extra that I needed to do to make these other than just run the die through the cutting machine. It cuts and scores, as well as has the little tab and slot on the pocket.  No adhesive is needed at all for this little cutie.  I used the ribbon with the bookmark type tie to hold the tops together.

The sentiment die is also included in the die set.  I love the scallop with the stitching.  The sentiment is included in the stamp set.  There are sweet sayings for most occasions included in the set.

Easter Basket

I do not normally post on the weekends.  But I had a cute idea that was appropriate to share for a little Easter project.  I had the idea to use the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to make a little basket to hold 3 X 3 cards and envelopes.  After I made it, I thought it would make an adorable Easter Basket.  I did a video and hopefully you could make some of these for your little ones.

If you get my blog posts through an email, you may need to open it into a web browser to see the video.  I haven’t got all of the kinks out of the process yet.  They say practice makes perfect…..I sure hope so!!

I decorated the basket with the Welcome Easter little chick stamp.  I stamped it on a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock and die cut with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The chick is stamped a little above half way on the die cut.  I used the design of the die , where you can see the chick’s top knot, as a line.  I scored across there and then secured it to the bottom of the basket and to the side.  You could also simply cut off that section and adhere the piece flush with the bottom of the basket.

The chick is stamped in Gray Granite Ink and colored using the Stampin’ Blends.  The yellow is both of the Daffodil Delight Blends.  The feet and beak are colored with the Light Mango Melody Blend.  I went around the chick with the Light Pool Party Blend.

The DSP is from the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper and is one of my famous “back side” of the paper.  I have a tip in constructing the basket.  Put the DSP on while the box is laying flat.  I messed up in the video and forgot to do that!!  Of course I would make a mistake 🙂

Here is a picture of the 3X3 holder that I made originally

I hope you can use this idea to spread some extra cheer this Easter.  It will be different for all of us.  Take care!!

Sweet Treat

I have fallen into the not knowing what day it is.  I have been working on projects the last few weeks and have several ready to go.  They are just not blogged about.  So sorry for being late on this early Monday morning.

I have had some different treats in mind for the sweet Printed Gusseted Cello Bags.  These bags are adorable and are part of the Birthday Bonanza Suite of Products.  A large variety of items will fit in them.  For me it was all about the tag.  Here is my Sweet Treat for you.

 

And here is a closer look at the tag.

 

 

This was a very quick project, which I love!  But it is also great for leftover designer paper.  I have used the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper.  For the flap, I used Terracotta Tile Card Stock to fold over the top of the bag and secured with a hand held stapler.  Any desk stapler will do for this.  I then layered a piece of the DSP over top of the card stock and secured it with multipurpose glue.

The tag is from the Bonanza Dies.  I cut the tag itself from Thick Whisper White card stock.  I placed a strip of the DSP ,that had been cut from sizing the flap layer, across the center of the tag. I used the dies to cut a sweet koala bear from the DSP and added him with some dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Little LadyBug stamp set from Sale-A-Bration.  The word bubbles are from the Bonanza Dies as well.

To finish the tag, I added Gray Granite Textile Weave Ribbon through the tag hole .  I wanted a little extra, so added a piece of the Grapefruit Grove 1/8″ ribbon and tied a bow around the larger ribbon.  The tag is secured to the bag topper with a couple of dimensionals.  I thought the tag itself could be a cute little bookmark as well.  I have used this tag previously and folded it for a gift tag.  You can see that project HERE

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you can smile from this cute little koala.  I wish I could send one to all of you.  As an old Stampin’ Up! stamp said “Keep Calm and Stamp On” !

March InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. Hop, hop! This month’s projects celebrate Easter, so prepare yourself for a variety of gorgeous, Easter-themed projects. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I have once again matched the color of the Hop Banner, without knowing ahead of time what it is.  Hopefully that is a good sign for my projects I have to share.  I rarely do two projects, but I have broken that today.

First here is my card for the Easter theme.

 

Cross of Hope, Welcome Easter, Stampin' Up!, Jackie Beers

 

I paired the Cross of Hope Dies, from the Annual Catalog, with the Welcome Easter stamp set .  I really love that particular cross from the dies.  Those dies are definitely a keeper.  My color choices for the card along with the bunny and lamb, come from childhood memories.  My Mom loved any shade of purple. So all of my Easter dresses growing up, at least while I was younger, were shades of purple.  I knew that had to be the base of my Easter card.

My second project is a little variation of a recent project from The Paper Pixie.   Julie’s Easter Mini Gift Bag, you can see her post HERE, was my idea for an Easter basket.  The only problem was I didn’t have candy that fit that size.  However, I found something that fit perfectly without shortening the size of the basket, which is now a bag.

 

 

Can you tell what is inside?  Yes, it is a Bath & Body Hand Sanitizer.  I know they cannot be found right now.  But as a crafter, I had several in my craft room for projects.  Now you know that they fit perfectly inside this bag.

I used the Coastal Weave embossing folder and the card stock measurements Julie gives fit perfectly inside the embossing folder.  The handle I is the Braided Linen Trim.  I have included in my supply list the items used for both projects.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Ann Murray at Murray Stamps Ink. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Julie’s 3 X 3 card box.

For today’s project I am channeling my friend Julie DiMatteo , The Paper Pixie.  I have put my spin on her adorable 3 X 3 card box.

For my box, I used the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and matching Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  Since Julie used dinosaurs for her box, it should look totally different !  LOL!!

 

 

And here it is with the lid off.

 

This is the link to Julie’s video on how to make the box.  Click HERE.  It is a super video, as always, and extremely easy to make.

My version of the box is made with the Magnolia Suite as I mentioned in the beginning.  I paired it with colors from the DSP.  I used Mossy Meadow as the box base.   My circle layers are from the Layering Circles Dies.  I used the same ones that Julie did in her video I believe.

The Magnolia Lane DSP has quite a bit of white to pair with the Mossy Meadow.  It also has a hint of the Petal Pink.  I stayed with those colors for the layers. I like the scalloped circle for the center,  and the white shows up very well against the pink.  I stamped the flower with the Petal Pink and then the sentiment over top with Mossy Meadow.  The finishing touch was the Champagne Rhinestone, from the Mini Catalog, as the “O” in Today.

I will share with you tomorrow the matching cards I made for the inside.  I stuck with the Magnolia theme.  I have listed all of the products I used in the Supply List at the bottom of the page.  Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you will come back to see the inside cards tomorrow.

Candy Bar Holder

I have a candy bar holder to share with you.  This can easily be adapted to any size candy bar.  I found these large Hershey candy bars on clearance at my local grocery store.

 

 

You can see this is a fairly large candy bar.  I started with an idea from a pull out type holder I had received at a swap last year.  The bottom on that one was closed just by pressing together with Tear & Tape.  This is a hefty bar of chocolate, and I didn’t believe that would be sturdy enough. So I went with a more regular box closure.  I did keep the pull out idea though.

Here is a picture of the pulled out candy bar.

 

 

The Witty-cisms stamp set, new in the Mini Catalog 2020, was a must have for me.  I love the cute stamps and sentiments.  The strawberry and sentiment are one stamp and I stamped it three times to get the extra strawberries for decoration.

I die cut the tags using the Bonaza Die set tag.  I cut one from Thick Whisper White and one from Cherry Cobbler.  You could also use one of the tag punches from SU if you prefer.

The background paper was a leftover piece of Come To Gather DSP.  The ribbon is on the retiring list  as well.

The measurements are as follows:

  • 7 1/2 X 8 card stock
  • On 7 1/2 side, score at 1/2″, then rotate paper counter-clockwise
  • On the 8 side, with 1/2 score at the bottom, score at 3, 3 1/2, 6 1/2, 7
  • Fold and burnish on all the score lines
  • The 1/2″ score line is the bottom.  Cut off the small right edge piece next to the 7″ score line
  • Cut up the scores up to the 1/2 ” mark.  taper the small ones as tabs
  • Place Tear & Tape along the inside of the larger outside section as well as the bottom adjacent to it
  • Place Tear & Tape on the back of each tab.
  • Lay the paper down and fold the small section over, remeove the T&T from the large section and when folded over it should line up perfectly.
  • remove the T&T from the tabs and the bottom section.  Square up the box, fold in the tabs, the flap without T&T and then the one with tape.  once aligned stand it up on the table and use a ruler to go down and press on that bottom flap.
  • Use a hand held punch to center a hole through both layers near the top.

 

 

It took 17 ” of ribbon for this.  So it is a good way to use up some retired ribbon.  Run the ribbon from one side, through the other side and even it out.  Place the candy bar into the top of the box and push down while trying to keep the ribbon even on each side. You should have enough ribbon left to tie a nice bow at the top.

Thank you for looking in today.  I hope this gives you ideas for dressing up a candy bar.  If you have any questions, please contact me and I will be happy to assist you.
