Kraft Pillow Box Treat Holder

Good Morning everyone!  Yay...it's Friday and a three day weekend!  Well...my husband took yesterday off so it's a five day weekend for us!  We're heading to the Rib Cook-off in Reno, Nevada with our son and his girlfriend.  We've never been!  I'm excited...but also dreading the crowds!  I'll keep you posted!  What are your plans for the weekend?  Whatever you do...BE SAFE & HAVE FUN!

Today's project is a gift that I made for my retreat ladies last weekend! I filled it with CHOCOLATE!  I used a Kraft Pillow Box.  To create the band I used a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock that I had embossed with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder.  I measures 2" X 8" and both ends are punched with the Delightful Tag Topper punch.  I love how it hangs over the side. I layered Polka Dot Tulle, Scalloped Lace Trip, Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen ribbon and Linen Thread into kind of a sloppy bow.  The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and is punched out with the Story Label punch!  The pillow box is so versatile!  Use it for back to school gifts, upcoming Halloween treats, Thanksgiving place settings and Christmas treats!  Don't forget Valentines Day will be here soon too...LOL!!! Oh the possibilities!

HEY!!! Thanks bunches for stopping by today!  Have a WONDERFUL weekend!

Dandelion Wishes - Elegant Anniversary

Good Morning Everyone!  Yep...it's still morning...BARELY!!! Man...I slept in until nine o'clock this morning!  I NEVER do that!  The weird thing is...I still feel tired!  My chores are done and I'm getting ready to drive to Redding to watch my daughter play volleyball.  I love cheering my kiddos on!  Before I go I have a beautiful anniversary card to share with you!  ENJOY!!

I used the Swirls & Curls embossing folder to emboss a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I tied a bow around the embossed piece using 3/8" Silver Metallic Edged ribbon and then attached it with dimensions to a 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" Whisper White card base.  Next I stamped the sentiment using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set onto a stitched circle cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits. It is stamped in Gray Granite ink and attached to a Pearlized Doily and then to the card with dimensionals.  I also frayed some Whisper White Flax ribbon, separating it into strands and tied another bow.  I punched some small flowers and added some pearls to finish it off!  I love how it!


Well...I hope you have a FANTASTIC day and that you enjoy a bit of creating time!  I'll be back tomorrow with more INSPIRING (I hope the inspire you), creations!!  THANKS A BUNCH FOR STOPPING BY!!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities - The Gift of Fall



Hello everyone and WELCOME to this evenings Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!  The kit this month is The Gift of Fall with a fun gift bag.  It also has an awesome add-on with 24 cards and 24 envelopes just in case you'd rather make cards. This months kit is one of my favorites! Here's what I created!

Of course I used one of the bags, but changed it up a bit by adding leaves that I cut with the Gathered Leave dies in the NEW Holiday Catalog.  I also layered fun matching ribbons to the top of the tag and slipped the leaves underneath!
My next project is a basic A2 card with a 4 1/2" X 8 1/2" Pretty Peacock base.  I LOVE this color! Layer one is a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock. It is topped with a 3 3/4" X 5" piece of Crushed Curry cardtock that I embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder. It is attached with dimensionals.  The tag is from the kit and is also attached with dimensionals. I used a vellum leaf (from the kit) and a sprig of Crumb Cake leaves (also from the kit) and the upcoming Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves dies to stamp and cut a few more leaves.  To finish it off I tied Linen Thread and White Bakers Twine into a bow and attached it to the top with a glue dot.
My favorite project is a card I created with the add-on kit.  The card base has beautiful color on the front. Using a  3 1/8" X 4 5/8" piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock I stamped a leaf in the center using the Gather Together stamp set.  I cut it out with the Gathered Leave dies and then embossed the frame with the Subtle Embossing folder and attached it to the card base with dimensionals. The vellum sprig is from the kit as are the gold sequins. I added metallic pearls to the centers of the sequins.  Last, I cut leaves from Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze cardstock and layered each one with dimensionals and added a Linen Thread bow to the stems.   

Here's a visual of how I stamped and cut...just in case I didn't make sense!  lol!

...and here are pictures of the add-on kit and the monthly kit!

~Today's Thought~
Sometimes we fall sometimes we stumble but we can't stay down. We can't allow life to beat us down. Everything happens for a reason and it builds character in us and it tells us what we are about and how strong we really are when we didn't think we could be that strong. - Gail Devers - There are moments where we just fall so hard that it seems as though we can't find a way back to where we want to be. But if we look at our situation in a different light our circumstances aren't as bad as we thou

Copper Tea Tin and Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP....it's NOT just for Christmas!

Hello there! I'm getting ready for my retreat this weekend...well, I'm actually trying to get going so I can get ready for my retreat this weekend.  I do have a project I want to share with you...it's a gift for my retreat ladies!

I decorated a Copper Tea Tin with Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Holiday catalog...a 2 1/2" X 12" strip wraps around perfectly!  It's NOT just for Christmas!!

The sentiment is from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and is punched with the 1 1/8" Scallop Circle punch.  I stamped the background in Pretty Peacock ink onto to scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Tasteful Textures stamp set and punched it out with the Story Label punch.  

I attached the sentiment and the background to a piece of Copper Foil paper that is embossed with the Hammered Metal embossing folder from the Holiday Catalog and punched with the 2" Circle punch.  I finished it off with layers of ribbon...1/4" Copper Trim, Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim, Linen Thread and Pretty Peacock 1/2" Scalloped Linen Ribbon.  I LOVE that look!  Now to fill it with goodies and have it at their tables!  

Hey...thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a FANTASTIC day!  Hope you find time to CREATE!!
