Forever Lovely Calendar Card

I created today’s projects for my January Thank You Cards. They are a bit different from what I usually do since they contain a little calendar but I really like the way they turned out and hope everyone who receives them will enjoy them.


They are so easy to make and even better they fold flat for mailing.

Want to learn how I made them? I’ve filmed a Tutorial for you today and also typed up a PDF to go along with it so you can make some too if you would like.

Hello Cupcake Mini Gable Box

Today’s project is one I made for every last week for my 2019 Occasions Catalog Kick Off using the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Hello Cupcake.

The Lustrous White Mini Gable Boxes made this project quick and easy since all I had to do was decorate and assemble, the box was already to go with a lovely shimmery finish.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the little treat box they found at their seats when they arrived.

Did you know that the Hello Cupcake stamp set is FREE during Sale-a-bration when you place a qualifying order of $50 (before shipping and tax)? So when you order the supplies used to create this little box you’ll earn the stamp set. Yes, it’s that easy!

Want to learn how I made them? Here is a video tutorial for you.

Rooted in Nature Faux Silk Tutorial

I started this project a while back and got side tracked. Does that ever happen to you? That being said, I’m not admitting to my stack of half finished projects  anything. LOL!

Well the good news is I finally finished it and love the way it turned out so I wanted to share it with you today.

What do you think? Can you see your favorite autumn photo in it? The color is a bit late here in this neck of the state so I haven’t gotten many pictures yet, but hope too still if the rain doesn’t wash things out.

This frame looks like it took along time and is complicated, but really isn’t difficult to do with a few basic supplies. The frame itself is one of those inexpensive $1 frames you can find at your local Walmart or craft store.

Here is a video tutorial for you showing you how I made it. This video is a bit longer than I normally do so I hope you enjoy it.

Lemon Zest Treat Holders

I love lemon and so needless to say I find using the Lemon Zest Stamp Set a lot of fun to use. As I was wondering around my local Dollar Tree a couple of weeks ago I found this package of individual Lemonhead Candies, one of my favorites so I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of bags to use as treats.

This treat holder is quick and easy to make and folds flat when you don’t have the box inside so it’s great for travel too.

So not only did I create these for my October Card Class as a little treat, but they’ll be headed to Orlando with me next week as a swap during our OnStage Live event too.

Want to make some too? Here is a quick video tutorial for you.

Blue Mountain Stampers Team Time

Yesterday I shared my special team event project with you and so today I thought I’d share some of the wonderful projects my team brought to share at our October meeting. The share time covered everything from cards to 3ds.

This first little project holds a few mini candy bars and was made using the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (147820) and the Candy Cane Season (147692) and Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp sets (142043) with their coordinating punches.

It’s topped off with our Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched Ribbon (144117) and Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine (147888).  Isn’t it adorable? I love the idea of combining the gingerbread cookie with the candy cane for this quick and easy treat.

And here is a beautiful box that was created with the Seasonal Layers Framelits Dies (143751). One of my favorites since it takes you through all 4 seasons.

And finally some bags and a box made with our Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (146926) and Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper (146338).

And of course we didn’t forget the Cards – This first one was made with the Daisy Delight stamp set (143669).

And this last one using the Accented Blooms stamp set. I just love the fall colors that were used on this card so I’m including the supply list for you below.

Country Home Plastic Frame Post it Note Holder

Yesterday I shared with you a treat tent that I made as a special surprise for my Peak Princess Day. This event is a special one that I hold twice a year to pamper my team and I love that I can do that. So today I thought I’d share the project we made and I remembered to take pictures this time so I can share those too. LOL!

So here is my classroom set up and ready for everyone. We played Bingo, laughed, shared, had some goodies and stamped together.

I’ve got such a great team who inspires me every day! I feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful team.

Here’s the project we made.

It’s a quick and easy project using the Country Home Stamp set and a inexpensive plastic frame. I’ve designed this one to hold a small package of post it notes since I wanted to include the sentiment.

Everyone got to choose their images and colored the images with their choice of Stampin’ Blends.

I love seeing all the different color combinations they did.

And of course what is a party without a little something to nibble on?

I couldn’t resist making some Twinkie Torte when I found some Pumpkin Spice Twinkies on a shopping trip.  It’s a recipe I’ve had since I was in High School and one of my favorites. The cinnamon was a bit much in the Twinkies for me, but the torte was pretty good with this fall flavor twist. I’ve had some questions about it so here is the recipe so you can try it too. And I found a yummy recipe for Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Pinwheels I couldn’t resist sharing with the team too. Tasty and sooooo easy to make – which is my kind of recipe.

 

Twinkie Torte

1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips

1/3 c. water

1/3 c. sugar

6 eggs, separated

2 c. whip cream or Cool Whip

9-10 Twinkies cut in half

Maraschino cherries

In saucepan, combine chips, water and sugar. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until chips are melted. Remove from heat and add egg yolks one at a time, mixing well after each, and cool. Beat egg whites till stiff – gently fold into chocolate mixture. Place Twinkies, cream side up in 9×13 inch pan. Spread chocolate mixture over Twinkies. Top with whip cream and garnish with cherries. Refrigerate 12 hours before serving.

Enjoy!

Trick or Tweet Folding Box

I love these little folding boxes that I shared with you the other day – so this time I’ve created one using the Trick or Tweet stamp set. After all we need to scare up some chocolate, right? And I couldn’t resist this little guy – he just makes me smile.

When you open up the lid and you’ll get a Halloween greeting and

Chocolate of course, (although you could put all kinds of things inside since it’s a pretty roomy box  if your guys don’t love chocolate.) I found these Russel Stover Carmel Brownie pumpkins at my local Ingles and couldn’t resist pickup up a few as gifts family.

(Sorry I think my photos are a bit off, it’s another rainy day here in Georgia which doesn’t my photo I hoping it’s just my screen.)

I’ve created a PDF tutorial with a complete supply list for you and of course, you can see the video on how to create this Folding Box HERE.

Trick or Tweet Treat Box

I love to make little treat items for family and friends and so when I saw the Trick or Tweets stamp set in the Holiday Catalog I knew it would be perfect for this year’s Halloween treats.

Check out this cute little box I made using the set

My fellow stamper, Pam gave this cute little box idea last spring and so I wanted to give it a try myself. Turns out these little boxes are sooooo easy to make, that they are kind of addictive once you get going.

Or at least I couldn’t stop – LOL!  The images and color combinations were just a lot of fun to play with once I got coloring with my Stampin’ Blends.

I thought you might like to try some too for your treats so I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial.
