Gift Boxes

Sorry I haven’t posted lately, this time of year is crazy as you probably know!

I’m getting ready for my next and final craft show of the season.  It’s going to be Dec 7th in Lexington Mass.  Here’s the info



Lexington, MA 02421

I purchased a bunch of the gift boxes that are in the main catalog.  They are GREAT boxes. Sturdy and a nice size.  I wasn’t sure how I could present them to sell at the craft shows.  I’ve had 2 shows with them and no one has bought them.  Then today, I was getting ready for the show and realized I had bought a “boat load” of Ghiradelli chocolates to wrap.  The though of wrapping 30 of them was a bit over whelming. I looked over at my boxes and thought that the squares would fit in them perfectly. And they did!  The gold paper looks beautiful with the Cherry Cobbler as well.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Candy Boxes

Just looking for different craft show items.  These were so fun to make! They are made with the retire Fancy Favor box. I’m working on a Grinch one, but I might end up with an elf suit instead. The reindeer ears are from the Sizzix Die Bigz Autumn Accents die. The Santa tag is the Ornaments Keepsakes Frame Lits and the bird punch!

Bloomin’ Marvelous!

I’m SO happy there’s a watercolor look stamp set in the Sale-a-bration!  I just love the look!

I created this 3 x 3 card with a little gift box.  The gift box is made from the Fancy Favor Box.  Last night I was trying to create a box to hold the cards – worked on it for about 1/2 hour before I realized I could use the FFB!

Look for this in an upcoming class!

Making Some Christmas Presents

Now that my craft shows are done, I can make some Christmas presents.  These are for some sweet little girls I know.  I need to make 2 more of the soccer ones for Maya’s two other sisters who play soccer as well!

Fall Candy Dish

I borrowed the Perfectly Preserved bundle from one of my downline gals this weekend. As you can see, I’ve been using it for the past few days. I think I’m putting it on my wish list! I wasn’t thrilled with it when I saw it in the Holiday Mini, but the more and more I see people making things with the, the more I want it.

I made this fall candy dish with the set and the DSP.  I’m going to try to sell a few of these at my upcoming craft fairs.

It’s that time of year. Teacher gift time!  This is a great little gift to any teacher!

I’m going to offer this as a class, a tutorial and kit. The project included the box, 8 – 3 x 3 cards in 2 different styles and 8 – 3 x 3 envelopes.  Here are the details:

I was given this card as a “thank you” from Stampin’ Up! for doing a Workshop Wow demonstration at the Hartford Regionals last month.  I loved it so much that I bought the set, Bold Blossoms so I could make it myself!  I’m making a few of the sets to sell at my upcoming craft show on Saturday.  I’ve been cranking out so much stuff, you’d think I’d be “stamped” out by now!!!  Don’t think that will ever happen!


I changed the colors and the design just a bit.

Simple, yet so beautiful!

Back from Regionals!!

Had a GREAT time at the Hartford Regional Seminar today!!!!  My whole team came as well as some great stampin’ friends!!  It was a fun filled day of stamping, chatting and good times with good friends.  I also did a Workshop Wow presentation in front of everyone.  I demonstrated this cute little business card holder using the Sizzix box #2 die.  It’s great to put on your desk or stick on a bulletin board at your gym.  You can change them out with the seasons.  I was so afraid that lots of the demos already knew the trick, but so many of them didn’t!!   Isn’t it cute!  Love the owl punch!!

I was blog hopping and discovered this on someone’s blot (I just saved the link in my “favs”, but now can’t find the blog!).  This is an awesome wedding favor!  I think she used the Blossoms Petal punch from the Occasions mini, I tried it and it was WAY too hard to do all those little pieces.  I just used my Fun Flowers Sizzix die. SO much easier! If you don’t have the Petal Cone Die, you’ll want it now!

Petal Cone Madness!

I’m like a kid when it comes to new SU products.  When I get something new, I just can’t stop playing with it!  I’m in the spring mode too so here’s another Easter project. A tutorial will be available in the future for this.  It’s a little tricky to do the top of the carrot. But it’s just so cute!!!
