Autumn Treat Box


Isn’t this the cutest thing!!! It’s Time to Unleash the Holiday Catalog ideas.

I just love Love Love this Die. Ok, slightly Skeptical with the die. Could it be really easy to use, could it be a fun new die to buy and make room for yet another framelit in my collection. Yes, Yes and Yes. I tried it and just totally loving it. I know you will too.

I used the leaves from Fall Fest and the bundled framelit dies. Always Bundle -it’s 15% off.

The greeting is the New Hostess set Good Greetings that you can get for FREE when you a Host a $300 Party/Workshop. The little background splotch of color that I stamped “give thanks” on came from another great set-For All Things.

Check out the detail of this little Wood Die Cut embellishment. It’s just the right touch for any package.


This New Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit Die is Amazing.

See what else I used to create this box.

Tiny Candy Treat Box


Sometimes you just need a cute little treat box to put a little something inside it.

I used Mini Ghirardelli candies to put inside:


I gave it to someone who held onto $ and an order from another customer. I just showed my appreciation for the Middle man/woman so to speak.

Of course, I know you want to make one too. So here is a Picture Tutorial for you.

First, pick your base-I used the Designer Series for the original but for this tutorial I used Garden Green Card Stock.

Then I used the Floral Frames Collection (on sale as a bundle with the stamp set this month-Hurry before Sept 1st!)


Using Green Card Stock here.


Time to break out those tools -Our Simply Scored Scoring Tool is awesome.

Score along-best by looking at picture:


Score at flower edges-makes your mountain folds.


Begin to fold all edges.


Start folding-easier with DSP so play with it for a moment with Card Stock.


Add Glue dot the inside of mountain fold-this side will go inside the box.


Add glue dot to outside Mountain fold.


Attach piece and do same on each side.


Curl the edges with a bone folder or pencil.



And the finished piece again.


Here are the Supplies I used:

(-OOPS-I also used the Flower Fair Framelits #133731 for the Flower Patch embellishment.)

The Fry Box Die

The simple French Fry Box. This IS my Favorite Die right now.

I used it this summer for my Church Vacation Bible School, personal gifts, and just fun Make and Take projects.

I had a few of my stamp clubs make these particular boxes in the past 2 weeks. I also found the Fun crinkle filler or Foo Foo as I like to call it. Perfect packaging.

Check it out:


I even had Cupcake Hand Sanitizer. I will admit I hoard these for many projects but lets not talk about that!

Here is the Cupcake up close.


Love them.


So easy to make and I really believe this particular die is Well worth the cost of $32.95. You can use it for ANY occasion and it’s easy to fill, with a bag of goodies or just dropped in. I am quite sure you will see more ideas with this box on my blog in your reading and viewing pleasure. Just letting you know because, It IS my Favorite Die, at the moment.

Here are the supplies I used:

Hello Sunshine-FREE Gifts for You

Happy Anniversary to me!

Happy 17 Years with Stampin’ Up!® To Me!!!

Now that went by awfully quick. A lot has happened in my life in 17 years. I signed up with Sheri Goldsmith from Up North in Michigan. She came back from the Las Vegas Convention and sent me the New 1997-1998 Stampin Up!® Catalog. It was the first year that the catalog was All Exclusive-Stampin’ Up!® stamp designs only. Before that it was other stamp companies. I signed up and could not wait for my kit to come. It took longer to get my kit that year as UPS was on Strike. What should have taken about a week-took 3 1/2 weeks. I was SO EXCITED when that kit arrived. Little did I know all that would come next. I was creative but Stampin’ Up!® Unleashed far more than I expected. More than Creativity, it brought me Fun, Friendships that have lasted over the years-Great Joy, Gifts given and received, 5 Earned cruises, Cash, Free Stamps, etc. Etc. etc. Stampin’ Up!® is there for you the Customer and The Demonstrator to CREATE. What you CREATE-is up to YOU! What You do with your kit-is up to You!

Now-I do Have something Exciting to Giveaway but first:

Although not a stamped Sunflower, I wanted to share this Beautiful Sunflower that is in our planter by the pier. It was probably planted by the birds at my feeder, along with the other fun flowers down there. Take a look.


Amazing Huh!

Ok, a bit more:




I did not plant any of these and it’s been a wonderful surprise to see.

My Nana had a Green Thumb, but I got the Creativity! A Thank You to my Birds (yes-it is possible the squirrels and the chipmunks deposited these too) for the Wonderful splashes of sunshine in my yard.

So-On to Celebrating 17 years.

THIS WEEK ONLY (August 13-19th), I am giving away a FREE 3-COLOR PACK of BLENDABILITIES (value $11.95) when you place a $50.00 online order with me.

A Blooming Easel Card

I have a fun card for you today. A Birthday Easel Card.

Lot’s of layers, a bit heavy, so I did have to use our New Fast Fuse to keep it all together. We don’t want it to fall apart before the recipient gets it.

And, this one might need a bit more postage but it’s so worth it.

It’s been awhile since I last made one of these and thought the Flower Patch stamps were perfect to use for my creative project.


And, it’s been awhile since I have used embossing in my projects too. I was organizing my containers of powders and came across a new color that I hadn’t cracked open yet. The color-Pool Party. So, my card actually started from that one container of embossing powder and a stamp set that just happened to be on my counter. You just never know when Inspiration will hit you!



Sometimes you need a Bright and Cheerful kind of card. I think it fits the bill don’t you?

Happy-Blooming-BirthdayI added the extra flower to hold the upper part in place, hence-Easel Card.
