We Must Celebrate Easter Merci Chocolate Box Tutorial

I just received my We Must Celebrate stamp set and couldn’t wait to get started creating with these fun little animals. I knew I would love using the little bunny for creating Easter gifts for family and friends.

I knew just want I wanted to do with them after making this chocolate box for my team members (Click HERE to see the video tutorial). So today’s project is one I whipped up a bunch of for those attending yesterday’s card class as a little surprise.

And of course it holds what else? Chocolate of course! I’m really finding these Merci Chocolate quite yummy and fun to work with and am asking myself how I’ve over looked them for so long!

I love the soft spring feel of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper when I ran across the package – so I used it to help choose the colors I used.

Wonder how I got just the bunny image? You could color it with Stampin’ Write Markers, or even mask the other section of the stamp off, but I cut the stamp apart. Yes, you heard me correctly – and for those of you who know me you know just how hard this was for me. LOL!

But I did it and am glad I did now, since it makes using this image so much easier AND when I want to stamp the group together I simply put it together on my clear block.

It didn’t affect the image at all when I stamped it, which made me very happy. The only thing I would do differently is cut the label before I apply it to the back of my clear mount stamp.

I’ve made a quick tutorial for you so you can make some too!

Team fun

Last week my team and I gathered for our monthly team meeting. I really enjoy this time sharing and stamping together, so today I thought I’d share some of the team swaps with you. I also love seeing the projects that everyone chooses to make for their swaps – it’s always fun to see what they create and share!

This first item is a beautiful box made with the Cake Soiree Suite of products  – and since the Sweet Soiree Designer Series Specialty Paper (145564) is a bit heavier, it’s perfect for this kind of thing.

Beautiful, right? Deborah used the Cake Soiree Bundle (145816/147627) to create the tag. And color coordination was made easy since the suite includes a coordinating  Card stock Pack (145565) that contains 3 colors from the Designer Series Paper.

Love the ribbon? Berry Burst (145489) is one of my favorite In Colors and this ribbon with it’s silver edge is perfect for this bundle!

What’s it filled with? I’m sure some treats, Deborah is the best at finding unique treat items for us. (I haven’t cracked it open yet since my husband is home. LOL!)

And here is another treat item that Sue made using the Perennial Birthday stamp set (145757/145760).

It has two pockets that she has tucked a Dark Chocolate Blueberry  Ghiradelli square into – can’t wait to try them!

And how about this cute little note card?

Like the projects? I can’t pick a favorite. I’m so lucky to have this talented group who love crafting, sharing, and learning new things!

St. Patty’s Day Ferrero Roche Gift Box Video Tutorial

I recently attending a DIY Retreat and received these yummy little Ferrero Roche Chocolates at dinner. Of course everyone at the table was on a diet right now, so I ended up with a little pile of them. LOL! As I lined them up on my table they made me think of little pots of gold – so I couldn’t resist making a little box for them for St. Patrick’s Day!

Of course I couldn’t resist adding a little shine to this project, so I pulled out the fabulous Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. The light green was perfect for this project!

These boxes are quick and easy to make so I whipped up a video tutorial for you in case you wanted to make some too!

So what do you think? Do you want to spread a little luck of the Irish and a little chocolate of course?!

If so I’ve also made a printable PDF tutorial with the supply list and measurements for you to go along with the video.

Salvation Army DIY Weekend

As I mentioned above I was at the DIY retreat when I was inspired by the chocolates so I thought I’d share some pictures with you of the event. It was a wonderfully uplifting weekend that started out a little soggy, but thankfully turned into a sunny event by the end.

I taught two groups the Barn Door Slider Card in Class

and we also made some Lots of Lavender Sachets that I shared with you HERE.

The dining hall was decorated lovely and the tables had coordinating theme center pieces.

The weekend was filled with good food, great fellowship, fun, and friends.

Along with some learning for me too.

What fun we had!

Well that’s it for today – stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some fun team swaps from this month’s meeting.

Painted with Love Treats

Yesterday I shared a fun card that we made during this month’s Blue Mountain Stampers’ Team meeting and promised I’d share some of the wonderful swaps with you too.

So here we go! This first project is a fun box that Deborah showed us how to make – it holds quite a bit of goodies inside and doesn’t use any adhesive which is rather cool. This first one was made with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies (141707) and Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (145580).

It holds quite a bit of goodies inside and doesn’t use any adhesive which is rather cool.

Here is another version she made using the Fruit Basket stamp set (145833) and Tutti-Fruitti Designer Series Paper Stack (145606).

Where did the little fruit come from? It was supply cut out from the Designer Series Paper! Fun right?

And seems we were on a roll with the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper – as you can see it is really versatile. Loving this pack of paper with that fun gold touch!

Here is a little treat bag using the Sure Do Love You stamp set (145763/145766) and the pretty Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack (145588).

Recognize those little gold foil leaves? They are part of the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (1456553).

And here is a fun nugget holder using the Lift Me Up Stamp set (142893/142896) and Up & Away Thinlits Dies (142748).

I love the way the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper feels like a sky with it’s colorful streaks.

And finally a card made with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies (142749)

What can I say, we’ve got a great group and we love to share! Sound like fun? Would you like to come stamp with us too?

So what do you think? Sale-a-bration is a great time to join! Add the fact that you’ll receive a discount on all these products and you can’t loose! If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, the Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can be first too!

Painted with Love Nugget Treats

Today’s post is going to be short and sweet – Here is a quick and easy treat idea using the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies and the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set. If you’d like to see here are the steps to make your own.

Here are the instructions – the supply list is below for you.

  1. Cut 5 strips of Designer Series Paper 1″ x 3″ (make sure the pattern is going the direction you want. For mine I lined the hearts up along the top edge and cut 1″ strips that then I cut into 4 3 inch sections.)
  2. Using your Glue Dots add one to each end of the Designer Series Paper and place one against the Nugget and wrap the Designer Series Paper all the way around. The second Glue Dot will seal the other end down.
  3. Slide the nuggets into cello bag.
  4. Cut a piece of Blushing Bride Card stock 2 1/4″ x 4 1/2″; score at 2 1/4″
  5. Stamp your sentiment in Rich Razzleberry along the bottom of card stock.
  6. Fold the sentiment piece in half and slip over the top of the cello bag and staple. (Your hearts will hide the staple on the front.)
  7. Run a piece of Designer Series paper through the Big Shot using the small heart Framelits die.
  8. Attach the heart to the nugget topper, leaving it hang a bit above the top and side.
  9. Run a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper through the Big Shot using the smallest heart Framelits die.
  10. Adhere the small heart to the nugget topper.

That’s it! Quick and easy – now you just need to share your treat!
