Coffee Break Suite - Candy Box






Hello Hivers, 

I decided to make a little box to hold some coffee flavored candy.  I found the tutorial on Pinterest for the box.  I can't remember who the originator is.  

I used the Coffee Break Suite of products to decorate with.  I added one element from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.

Demonstrator Only Swap




Hello Hivers, 

I have really been pushing myself out of my comfort zone.  I signed up to participate in a 2017 Holiday Catalog Pre-Order Demonstrator Only Card Swap.  At first I committed to just making 11 cards of one design.  But then, for some unknown reason, I went back and signed up for 2 more designs (11 of each design).  I was very nervous.  You have to make original designs....and you all know that I am the queen of CASEing.  But I knew that I could do at least one...but three?  Boy, oh boy.  I found that my Creative Mojo works great under pressure.  I love all three designs I came up with.  

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  I would really appreciate the feed back.

Hello Hivers, 

 This is another look at the Count My Blessings stamp set from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  This card was inspired by a card that I made for a Demonstrator Only Swap.  I will be sharing those cards with you tomorrow. 

Enjoy your day.

Spooky Night Designer Series Paper Treat Pouch




Hello Hivers, 


How are you loving the new 2017 Holiday Catalog?  Isn't it great!? I am having a ball making all sorts of things with all my goodies.  Today I am sharing a treat pouch that I put together using the Spooky Cat stamp set and the Spooky Night DSP.  The pouch holds about 7 of the Pixy Stix.  I cut a window in the pouch using the Everyday Label Punch and added a small piece of Window Sheet.  The sentiment was cut out using the Wood Crate Framelits.

Side Note:  The Halloween Night Baker's Twine I used is retired.

Paper Pumpkin - Altered Alternates













Hello Hivers, 

I am sharing a gift I gave my daughter.  Yesterday was her 12th birthday.  I bought a pocket calendar from Target and personalized it for her.  The name stamp is a retired Stampin' Up! stamp.  

I used some elements from the August 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit to decorate the calendar.  I also used the Wood Words stamp set and embossed it in Gold. 

I am showing photos of the front and back of the calendar.  My daughter really loved her gift.  I am happy she did.  Oh, and all the embellishments will stay on safely because I added the plastic sleeve back on to the calendar when I was finished.

Lovely Inside & Out - Friend



Hello Hivers, 

Here is a quick and simple card.  I used the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set.  I added the Marker Splatter/Thumping  technique to the Whisper White background to give the card a bit more interest.  What do you think?

Happy Little Piggy



Hello Hivers, 

I am loving this card layout.  As you can see, I have used it for a few cards now.  I just change a few things around.  I am really liking this color combination...Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, and Night of Navy.  They are so rich and vibrant.  And OMG!  Look how happy that little piggy looks.  Just adorable.

Wishes all Aglow - Jingle



Hello Hivers, 

Happy Labor Day.  Today I am sharing a Christmas card.  I made this with the Wishes All Aglow stamp set.  It can be found in the new Holiday Catalog.  I paired it with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  I colored some Rhinestone Jewels with Sharpies to add a little bling.  I also added the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers along the bottom edge of the sentiment.
