Turkeys, Elves & Snowflakes…. Oh my

I LOVE the gift items we can make with our stamps and paper and so today I thought I’d share with you some of the cute little items I received in a swap I organized for OnStage in Orlando.

I’m starting with this adorable Turkey – such a clever idea using the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch (148013) and some simple circles.

He holds a little Peppermint Pattie – so simply add a name to his tummy and you’ve got a perfect table setting piece for this Thursday.

And here is another treat made with the Making Christmas Bright stamp set (148046).

Open it and you’ll get a wonderful surprise – Yumm I’ve got to go looking for some of these chocolates myself it was so yummy!

And this cute little box using the Santa’s Workshop suite of products holds some Ghirardelli chocolates.

And this snowflake beautiful box was created with the cool colors of winter – done in Bermuda Bay and Pool Party the box has been brayered with color and spritzed with some Frost White Shimmer Mist. Pops of Silver Foil Paper and some Silver Mini Sequin Trim finish off the elegant look.

The sentiment is from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set (148478).

And here is another treat made with this same sentiment – it’s a great size for all kinds of projects!

This treat was created using the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (147820) and a cello bag that holds some Hershey’s Nuggets.

And finally a little top hat treat

I love the simplicity of this little top hat filled with Kisses. I immediately thought of Frosty the Snowman. LOL

I can’t wait to try some of these treat ideas myself – as I do I’ll be sure to share how I created them myself!

I’ve been doing swaps for years with some of these ladies, but this is the first time I’ve done one in person so it was wonderful meeting each other after years of emails and packages. They are just one of the many blessings stamping and being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator has brought into my life.

OnStage CentreStage – Epcot

Stampin’ Up! events are special and because of you all I was able to get a special invitation to CentreStage & Epcot.

I was so excited to be able to qualify for this event for a number of reasons – one of which I’ve never been to Disney in Orlando! Another making making memories, meeting new friends, and see old ones.

Here’s a new friend, Linda Baker, we met on the bus ride over and decided to join forces for the day with Tracey who was meeting me there.

After a full after noon at Epcot’s Wine & Food Festival our CentreStage event included a wonderful evening of deserts & karaoke.

The fried donuts with fresh vanilla bean ice cream were fantastic!

The evening ended with the fireworks display – I was even able to catch a selfie with Sheli and Sarah towards the end of the event!

And of course our first glimpse of the NEW 2019 Occasions Catalog! Squeel!

Thank you again for helping me reach my goals and be able to qualify for this event – I couldn’t do it without you my stamping friends and team!

OnLine Extravaganza starts Friday November 23rd – and You’re going to LOVE it!!!

I’ll be posting more details on the 22nd for you until then safe travels

Quick & Easy Easter Treats!

Check out these quick and easy Easter Treats I whipped up yesterday using the We Must Celebrate stamp set – I really love this little bunny.

And the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (128748/127802) is one of my favorites since it has a ton of sentiments and gives you something for every occasion!

I used our 2″ x 8″ Cellophane Bags (141703) and filled it with Hershey’s Nuggets that I wrapped strips from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (144185).

A quick wash with my Aqua Painter (103954) in Smoky Slate (131179) and Blushing Bride Classic Ink (131172) completed my bunny. For the topper I was inspired by the colors in the paper and used my Layering Circles Framelits Dies (141705).

And how about this little Treat Pouch filled with a Ghiradelli Blueberry Chocolate Square? Got to tell you these chocolates are yummy!

I used the Petal Garden Designer Series 6×6 Paper Stack (144168) since it is perfect for this project – no cutting and of course teamed it up with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies (141705) so I could get the full body of this little guy. A quick sentiment done in Old Olive Classic Ink (126953) and voila! done and ready for giving out this weekend!

Enjoy! And then why not stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more projects with you?

Pop ‘n Cuts Easter Treat

I love to use the Card Base Pop ‘n Cuts Die to create all kinds of projects. So when I was playing with the Eggstra Spectacular stamp set the other day working on my Mini File Folder Gum Holder (click HERE to see more about that project) I couldn’t resist pulling it out to play with – and voila!

Pop 'n Cuts Easter Treat

The holder holds a square of Ghirardelli chocolate. (I found these special ones for Easter at my local Ingles that are just too cute with the little images on them.)

Ghirardelli Chocolate Spring Pop 'n Cuts Easter Treat

Don’t you just love the soft colors from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper? Mmm… subtles, I love the soft spring color pallet, it’s my personal happy place and after this winter I think we’re all looking forward to spring!

I’ve used my Blender Pen and Smoky Slate Classic Stampin’ Pad to color the little lamb along with an assortment of Stampin’ Write Markers for the basket of eggs. And the Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon belly band just slides off and allows you to open your treat –
