' For Peeps' Sake' Treat Box

If you're still looking for treat ideas for Easter,
here's a fun one :)

I used the Tiny Treat Boxes from Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog,
and created a little insert for the Cadbury Caramel Egg.

I think the Bow Builder Punch is going to be my newest 'favorite' tool!

Here's a tutorial for the box insert:
1. Cut cardstock to 2-15/16" x 2-15/16"
2. Score at 1/2" on all four sides
3. Punch out a 1-1/4" circle out of the middle
4. Cut up to score lines on all 4 sides, fold, and assemble

Hopefully that makes sense!

Have a fabulous day!

Supplies Used (all are from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: For Peeps' Sake
Ink: Calypso Coral, Hello Honey
Paper: Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Best Year Ever DSP (Sale-a-bration)
Other: Tiny Treat Boxes, Word Window Punch, Bow Builder Punch, 1-1/2" Circle Punch (non Su!), Scalloped Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch

'Enjoy An Egg-cellent Easter'

I fell in love with the "For Peeps' Sake" stamp set
 from Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog. 

Such cute images! 

Since Easter is almost here, 
I figured I'd better get crackin',
and whip out some treats.

Here's one that I came up with... 

I ended up repurposing a bottle like this 
from some sweet & sour sauce.

All I did was remove the label,
wash it really good,
and spray paint the lid.

Here's a view from the side.

And a close up of the cute bow on top!

This was such a fun project!

Supplies Used (all are from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):

Valentine Treat Boxes (sharing a little late)

I know Valentine's Day is over....,
but I still wanted to share some cute treat boxes 
I made for a Valentine's exchange.

Stampin' Up!'s Envelope Punch Board was used to make the boxes.
I don't use that tool nearly enough!

Each box was filled with chocolate candy hearts like the ones in the picture.
Nothing beats getting a yummy treat packaged in a cute little box!

Here's what the back of the box looks like.
I wish I would've put some decorative paper inside.

And here's a close up of one of the boxes.
Pretty cute!

The idea for the treat boxes came from HERE.

Happy Friday!
Hope you have a fabulous weekend :)

Supplies Used (all are from Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Stacked With Love DSP Stack
Ink: Real Red
Stamps: You Plus Me
Other: 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 2" Scalloped Circle Punch (non SU!), Owl Punch (heart), Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Envelope Punch Board

Quick Happy Birthday Card

The last 2 months have been a whirlwind.

My husband and I closed on our very first home on December 1st.
Then began the overwhelming task of packing, unpacking,
and figuring out where to put everything.
We're still working on it,
but are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Most of the boxes are unpacked,
and our house is starting to feel like our HOME.

The very last room to get tackled has been my craft room.
After getting most of the room put together,
I had to take a break and make a few cards.
Because that IS what you do in a craft room ;)

I went with one of my favorite layouts
and used some retired SU! paper to make some birthday cards
(I 'm already behind on sending these out for 2015).  

Here's my cards...

The 'Happy 'Birthday' stamp
 is from the Big Day stamp set 
from Stampin Up!'s Sale-a-bration catalog.
I just LOVE it!

There's still some organizing to do in my craft room
(and throughout the whole house),
but I'm super excited to actually have a craft room!
I'm sure I'll be spending lots of time in there :)

Supplies Used (all are from SU! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Big Day Stamp Set
Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Tangerine Tango 
Paper: Whisper White, Kraft Cardstock (non SU!), Sycamore Street DSP (retired) 
Tools: 2" Circle Punch (non SU!), 2" Scalloped Circle Punch (non SU!), 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Owl Punch, Project Life Corner Rounder Punch

Easy Christmas Gift Idea with Free Printable

My kids needed some quick Christmas gifts for their friends,
and I remembered a cute gift one of them got a few years ago from a cousin.

It was just a can of soda pop and a bag of microwave popcorn 
tied up in a cellophane bag with a tag that said:

Pop, Pop
Fizz, Fizz
Oh, what a good friend you is!

I searched online for some ready-made tags,
and didn't have much luck.

So I made my own :)

Here is how we packaged ours.
(I wish I would've bought larger cellophane bags)

If you'd like the tags without the watermark,
you can download it HERE.

Merry Christmas!
