A Tisket a Tasket a Highland Heather Basket

Today’s project is my take on a quick and easy basket. AND it’s perfect for spring, especially since it uses our lovely Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper!

I made this basket with a moving handle so it is more like a picnic basket than an Easter basket. Don’t you love the little bit of lace on the handle? I made this with our Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and it was so easy to do with just a small strip of Whisper White card stock.

Want to whip some of these up too? They are a nice size so add a little shredded paper and treat and you’re set to go. You can make a ton of these with just one stack of Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper and it comes in a variety of spring like colors so they are perfect for giving to others!

Here is my a video tutorial and PDF for you –

I hope you’ll enjoy making these cute little baskets too.

On a personal note I thought that I’d finally share the home improvement project that I was working on with you. I mentioned it a couple of weeks ago and then realized last night that I’d taken the pictures but didn’t share them. Sigh. Some days… lol Can you relate?

Any how here is what was keeping me busy – I still have a couple of finishing touch of things I need to do, but it’s all good.

I had a great time watching my son work on and build the cabinets and then watching the kitchen come together after dreaming about it for so long. I’m bias, but I think my son has done a great job. It turned out beautifully and I really like the look of the hickory. Johnathan did a beautiful job of choosing the grains so they look nice. I love doing projects like this together – great family time and memories being created in addition to a functional end result. You’ll get to see it yourself the next time to come to class, since this space is for our use and will make things easier than the old temporary kitchen set up.

Quick & Easy Treats

As soon as I saw the Happiness Blooms Designer Series paper I thought of the cute treats I could create with it for St Patty’s Day. The pattern looked like clovers to me. So here is what I came up with.

So I reached for the Amazing Life stamp set which contains not only the Good Luck sentiment but a 4 leaf clover too – both perfect for my project.

I’m a mint fan so when I found these little Russel Stover mints I picked up a bag – I love little prepackaged treats like this!

Want to see how I made them? Here is a quick video for you.

Meant to Be Merci Treat Holder Tutorial

Merci chocolates are so yummy that I thought I’d create some treat holders to share them – plus it stops me from eating them since they seem to call my name! So I reached for the Meant to Be Bundle and got to work.

Here is what I came up with

This little treat holder holds 3 Merci Chocolates – a perfect size for just a little taste of chocolate when you want it.

I love the way the heart shape is at the top without any card stock behind it. Want to know how I made them? Here’s my video tutorial.

Bloom by Bloom Calendar Card

I had some more calendars that I wanted to use so I made this bright and cheerful Bloom by Bloom Calendar Card to send out. I know it’s almost the end of January but I think they will still bring a smile to the recipients face.

I’ve created a PDF Tutorial for this card and if you would like to see my earlier video tutorial that I shared with you showing you how I made these calendar bases for my Forever Lovely Calendar Card CLICK HERE.

Just a note: the video has been notated that I said the wrong measurement for the base on the video, but please know that the PDF is correct. Sometimes my mouth gets ahead of my brain. Ever have that happen? lol. But know that you start with a standard card base that is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.

Forever Lovely Valentine Treat

I made today’s project as a little goodie for my team members and put one at everyone’s tables for the Winter Retreat this past weekend. I couldn’t resist these yummy little Creme Filled Wafer Rolls when I saw them and was hoping they were individual wrapped. However, that turned out not to be the case so our 2×8″ Cello Bags to the rescue!

I simply slipped 3 of the little sticks inside and sealed then decorated. I really like how they came together and think they turned out quite elegant with the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets. The little heart looks just like a chocolate box since I used the Tufted Embossing Folder. What do you think?

I’ve put a video together for you in case you’d like to make some of these treats too
