Simply Sent Candy Box

Hello Ladies!  I wanted to share a Candy Box that is so easy to make.  I saw this idea on Julie Davison's Blog during the Simply Sent Promotion.   I really LOVE it when you can use a product in more than one way.  This Candy Box can be used for Any Ocassion!  At Convention this year we saw a demonstration of how you could make a box using the Simply Sent Cards.  Julie came up with another cute box idea and she even created a FREE tutorial to show you how easy it is to make.
Just click  ( Here ) 

You start with the Simply Sent Everyday Elegance Cards.  So pick your favorite color either Cherry Cobbler or Baja Breeze there are 4 of each color.  Do some scoring, some folding and a little cutting, then voila you're done!!  I just love the scalloped edge around the top of the box!

So here is my take on the Candy Box.

These Candy Boxes are so darling and perfect to hold any delicious surprise inside.  With Christmas right around the corner I decided peppermints would be perfect!

Here's a close up view.

So don't delay on getting started on this FUN project for Christmas. 
Perfect for a fellow co-worker or your child's Teacher!

A Special Thanks to Julie for sharing this wonderful idea with us!!!
Thank You for stopping by today and take a break to do some stamping!

Happy Stamping !!!

Snow Much Fun Envelope Gift Card Holder

    First I hope that everyone is having a Wonderful Thanksgiving! 

                          I have a couple of days off, yipee !!
Time to have some Stamping fun and get a start on Christmas gifts.

Today, I have an adorable Envelope Gift Card Holder to share with you.  It's the Snow Much Fun Envelope Gift Card Holder that I saw over at Lee Conrey's blog ( Here ).  This is pretty much a case of Lee's Gift Card Holder.  When I saw it, it reminded me of the Make & Take Project that I shared with everyone at our November Diva Meeting last year.   The Christmas Sachet Envelope.  ( Here )

So here we have my take:

                 These are so much fun to make and super easy too!

                              Here's a Close up View.

It's been so busy that I forgot to take a picture of how the actual Gift Card Piece fits inside.  But if you go to the link above there is a picture on Lee's blog.

Start with a Medium Envelope that you have sealed closed.   Trim off 2" on one side.  I used the Scallop Edge Punch to decorate the bottom of the Top.  Stamped the Top with the Serene Snowflakes stamp set using Crumb Cake ink. Then I sponged the bottom of the Scalloped Edge with Crumb Cake ink.  Then take the Bottom of the Envelope and run it through your crimper, making sure the lines will be vertical.  Additional stamp sets were Petite Pairs and Snow Much Fun.  Accent with Crumb Cake Seam Binding.  Other supplies were the Big Shot, Pefect Pennant Die, Modern Label Punch, Round Tab Punch.

Thanks for stopping by today and again Happy Thanksgiving to All !!

Happy Stamping !!!

Turkey Talk Treats

It's almost Thanksgiving and it's Our Anniversary today!  We actually got married on Thanksgiving Day some ---  years ago.  Next year Our Anniversary will be on Thanksgiving Day again.   Here's the wonderful surprise that was waiting for me when I got home from work tonight.

                          What a Wonderful Surprise !!!

Okay, now I better get to what I wanted to share with you today.  It's my Turkey Talk Treats that I made for my co-workers.  I kinda spoil them around the Holidays as much as time allows.   I saw this cute idea on Lorri Heiling's blog a while back and finally got some time to give them a try.  You can see Lorri's Turkey Treats ( Here ).  I believe that Lorri said the original idea is from Erin Gonzalez

         Don't you just LOVE them!!  My co-workers sure did. 

Now my Turkey Treats use the Retired "Turkey Talk" SU stamp set.  This has been a Favorite of mine for quite some time.  Every now and then I just have to dust it off and make some FUN things with it.

                      Here's a close up view.

So ladies get your Big Shot out and your Two Tags Die and have some FUN.  Add some ribbon, I used some Retired 1 1/4" Striped Early Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon.  The Early Espresso Baker's Twine is used to keep everything in place.  Then add your Favorite Candy Bar or use as a Table Placement for all your guests.  I also used the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch along with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch.  A super easy way to decorate your Thanksgiving Table!!

Santa Sleigh and Card

Today is my BIRTHDAY!!!   So I wanted to share with you the project that Heidi Baks created for Craft Project Central. Heidi has created a petite little decor item, because she loves to decorate with crafting items.  Isn't this just the most adorable Santa Sleigh and I love the cute Card with the Stitched Felt Wreath !!!

Santa's sleigh is stuffed full of mini presents. And of course Santa doesn't travel without his sack stuffed full of goodies, a mini drawstring bag created from Deck the Halls Designer Fabric. A standard size coordinating card gives you an idea of how petite and cute this ensemble is.

Don't forget you can get all the instructions in November's issue at Craft Project Central.  I can't wait to make this project !!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Happy Stamping !!!

October Stamp A Stack

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Halloween !!!  I'm still behind in posting, so today I have the cards that we made at the October Stamp A Stack.  We had a full house again this time.  All the cards were created by Susan Campfield and Brenda Cardinal.   Thanks to Both for sharing their creativity with us again at the Stamp A Stack!!!!   So let's get started shall we.

First up is the "Love and Sympathy" Card:

You really can't see the Medallion background stamp very well, but it makes this card so elegant!

This is the "Bright Hopes" Card:

I LOVE this Christmas card!  The Whisper White and Baja Breeze are really a wonderful combination for the Holiday Season.

The third one is the "Glimmer Christmas Stocking" Card:

This card is simple, but yet stunning for the Holidays.   The Silver Glimmer Paper really adds the sparkle to the Stocking. 

"The Newspaper and Ties" Card:

Now for the ever popular Masculine card.  This card uses that Funky Fold that Susan has created for a couple of other cards in the past.  I believe this card was one of the Favorites. 

The "Gently Falling" Card:

Now this isn't exactly how Susan and Brenda designed this card.  I had forgotten my camera at home and did all the stamping.  Assembly was done later when I got home, so the Grateful Greetings Banner should actually go across more towards the center of the card rather than at the bottom.  I guess I was daring to be different with this one!!! 
That 's what I always say when this happens.

I hope that you enjoyed the awesome cards from the October Stamp A Stack !!!

Have a wonderful TGIF tomorrow!!!

Happy Stamping !!!
