Stampin’ Up! Sweet Stack Mini Chocolate Pocket

Call me weird but I have a habit of wandering candy aisles looking for sweet treats that might call to me for some crafty packaging.  As soon as I came upon these Ghirardelli Mini’s I knew a pretty little packet was called for and this is what I came up with using the Sweet Stack stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

It looks like a mini traveler’s notebook doesn’t it?  There’s a little pocket for the chocolate and the inside cover is perfect for leaving a small note to the recipient.  These treat pockets don’t use a lot of supplies and are a snap to make.  Check out my video tutorial below to see how easy-peasy they are to create.

Acorny Thank You Treat Holder

When someone places an order with me I like to show my appreciation with a handmade card but every once-in-a-while I surprise them with a little something more.  In September I created these Autumn-themed treat holders for an event and loved them so much that I made up extras to slip in with my client’s orders.  These adorable bags could be filled with any kind of small candy but the stamp set I used is named Acorny Thank You so you know it had to be candy corn!

 

16-oct-acorny-thank-you-treat-bagAren’t they sweet?  They are quick and easy to make so I’ll be making up several to have on hand for many different events this fall.  They would be great to tuck in with a tip to hair dresser, manicurist and dog groomer as well as hostess gifts and table favors.

Here is a video tutorial for the Acorny Thank You Treat Holders and a full list of products used are listed below.

New Stampin’ Up! Catalog Reveal Party

I held my June Fun & Fancy Stamp Classes on Monday and everyone in attendance received a copy of the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  A new catalog is always something to celebrate so a party was in order.  The theme for the party was Flip-Flops and Flamingos.  As mentioned in my blog post HERE I have fallen in love with the new Pop of Paradise Stamp Set and I’m finding Flamingos everywhere these days!

Here are a couple photos from the party:

16-JUN-Catalog-Reveal-Decor16-JUN-CupcakesMy cupcakes were Tropical Mango and coordinated perfectly with one of the new In-Colors, Peekaboo Peach.  I made the cupcake picks by stamping the pineapple image from the Pop of Paradise stamp set onto Peekaboo Peach card stock using Basic Black ink.  I punched the pineapples out with the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch then adhered two circles together with a toothpick in the center using Fast Fuse Adhesive.  It was a last-minute idea and I put them together just 30 minutes before the party started!

Floral Wings Easter Basket

16-MAR-Floral-Wings-Easter-BasketWe will be hosting 10 for Easter dinner this Sunday and I have been busy this week preparing.  One of my favorite things to do for holiday dinners is to set a fun table and this Easter I wanted to place a basket filled with sweets at each place setting.  My time is short so I needed something quick and easy and came up with these cuties.  I’m really happy with how they turned out and think they scream, “Spring is finally here!”.   They would also make great favors for all the upcoming Spring events; baby showers, bridal showers, May Day, and Mother’s Day to name a few.

I was able to make three baskets from one sheet of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and they were super simple to put together.  The basket is made from a piece of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and the handle is a 6″ x 3/4″ piece of Designer Series Paper.  I used a 4″ x 3″ piece of Whisper White card stock to stamp the butterfly image onto and the lacy butterfly was cut from a 2-1/2″ x 2″ piece of Vellum.  Here is a video I created to show you how the baskets are made.  Enjoy!

Envelope Punch Board Treat Box

16-FEB Env Punch Board Treat Box

An envelope is an envelope is an envelope except when it isn’t.  I made this cute little treat box using the Envelope Punch Board by Stampin’ Up!  I love using the Envelope Punch Board to create coordinating envelopes in any and all sizes for my card projects but I probably use it more often for 3-D paper projects.  Take a browse around Pinterest and you will see a great variety of ideas using the Envelope Punch Board.  It’s a great addition to any craft room and it’s on sale thru February 22, 2016.

The box is pretty simple to put together; just a few folds here and a few trims there.  If you’re a visual learner like me though, this quick video tutorial will be helpful.  And when you’re finished viewing take a minute to check out all the Weekly Deals below.
