Birds of a Feather Table Treats

Today I’m going to share a fun project I made for this weekend’s #OnStage Event in Atlanta. I’ll be giving these out to some friends as table treats – just a little something, something for our sweet tooth.

I really love this set with it’s fun images and couldn’t resist using it for this Thanksgiving project when I found these pumpkin pie Rice Krispies treats with their gold wrappers (rather than their blue ones), I thought to my self it’s perfect! I’m always thinking color coordination when I’m looking at the packaging on the store shelf. Have you ever shopped that way?

Actually they actually are pretty good too. So if you run across them you might want to give them a try too. If not the regular ones will work just as well.

Since I’m taking these to share I thought you might like to make some to share too, so I’ve created a video for you.

Not only do I share how to make the holder, but I’ve also shared how I colored this little turkey with our Stampin’ Blends – I just love their bright bold colors for projects like these!

I’m going to run since I’ve got to get out the door, but stop back by again next week when I’ll be sharing the team gift I made for #OnStage with you. I ran out of time, so I don’t have the tutorial done yet.

Enjoy!

To Every Season Thank You Card

I do love a stamp set that has great images for both cards and treats, add the fact that it has punches and it’s sure to be on my wish list. Today’s project is a thank you card that I’ve whipped up using the To Every Season Bundle’ fall option.

I’ve chosen to highlight our Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scallop Ribbon on this project since I love the look and feel of this ribbon AND I love the fact I can get it in all 5 of the 2019-2021 In Colors!

Here is the card I created for my November Thank You cards.

While right at the moment it feels like winter here in North Georgia with our 20 degree wake up this morning, it really is fall. In fact the leaves on the mountain sides are simply beautiful right now and were at their peak I think. After our late 90 degree weather and this early blast of arctic cold I think mother nature is a bit confused.

Any how would you like to see how I made this card? Why not check out my Video Tutorial?

#imbringingbirthdaysback with Country Home

I’m on a roll with Country Home and loving the images colored with our Stampin’ Blends. Today’s card is one that I made to send out this week for my October birthdays. I wanted the feeling of autumn when I created this card so I reached for the Terracotta Tile and Pretty Peacock. Two of my favorite 2019-2020 In Colors, and here is what I came up with.

Of course, I can’t resist the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint to create the 3d feel of the cotton pods either.

Here is a quick video tutorial sharing how I colored and used the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint along with a couple of tips for success. I’ve also done a PDF to go along with the video for you.

👑Peak Princess Fun & the Amazing Magnolia Lane Folding Album

Last weekend was my Peak Princess event. What’s that? Well it is a special afternoon of pampering for those Team members who have earned it. We enjoy the time together, food, played a game, and of course create a project.

This event was extra special since it was our largest group yet due to everyone’s hard work – and I added a bit of a luau theme to the snack table to celebrate.

The hit of the snack table was the Artichoke & Mushroom Toast – not really Hawaiian fair, but since the Hawaiian pizza rolls I was planning on were a flop when I tried them, this worked out well since everyone seem to enjoy them.

Here is the recipe if you want to try them yourself. I found them really easy to do and prepped everything the day before and then assembled before the event.

Artichoke & Mushroom Toast

Taste of Home

  • 36 slices French bread baguette (1/2 inch thick)
  • 3 T. Olive Oil, divided
  • ½ lb. sliced fresh mushrooms
  • ½ lb. sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 T. butter
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jar (7.5 oz) marinated quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/3 c. mayonnaise
  • 1 T. Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 2 c. Swiss cheese, shredded

Place bread on baking sheets; brush with 2 tablespoons oil. Broil 4-6 inches from heat for 1-2 minutes or until lightly toasted.

In a large skillet, sauté mushrooms with Italian seasoning in butter and remaining oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place artichokes in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Add mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese; cover and process until blended. Spread over toast slices; top with mushrooms and sprinkle with Swiss cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 4-6 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Yield 3 dozen

And here is the classroom waiting for everyone to arrive.

I shared the little Country Home Kit Kat Holders which were everyone’s “pillow gifts” on the table with you yesterday – I thought the thankful greeting was perfect to express my thanks to my team.

We enjoyed a game after everyone settled in –

Have you ever played the Right, Left Game? It’s so simple…. everyone starts with a package and then we passed our packages to the right or left depending on the Ink Pad story I read.

Lot’s of fun and laughter to go around!

After we did a Make n Take and created these lovely Folding Albums. My friend, Marni gave me one of these little albums last spring in a swap and I loved it so much. I saved it since I knew it was the perfect project for the day. I simply put my own spin on it.

It wasn’t hard to choose the paper I wanted to use. The Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper is so striking and you’ve got a ton of pattern choices in the package. Here is what the album looks like opened.

I’m looking forward to filling it with some photos!

Here is the gang working on theirs

Want to see how I made this album? The Team enjoyed making them so much I thought you would too!

Amazing Magnolia Lane Folding Album Video Tutorial

Oh, I almost forgot the tag or chip board is simply the extra piece in our Specialty Designer Series Paper packs – How great is that? You can up cycle it!

So what do you think? Want to make one for yourself? I think they make great gifts and of course you could stamp on the inside diamonds if you prefer rather than use it as an photo album. I think there are endless ways to use this amazing album!

Here is a printable version with the complete supply list I used.

#simplestamping with Bon Appetit

If you sometimes find the options over whelming when you sit down to create a card, simple stamping just might the thing to recharge your creativity. Today’s project was created using card stock, ink, and a couple of punches. It also uses the stamp set from our September Paper Pumpkin Kit. Which is perfect for simple stamping. Check out this cute little note card for Halloween. Perfect for mailing or tucking in with a little treat.

These little skeletons are simply stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and I used the Gorgeous Grape spot that came in the kit for the sentiment and sponging. Want to see how I made it? I’ve got a video today for you. (I know it’s a day later than planned, but I wanted to share my big news with you yesterday – a perfect way to start the new year!)

Perfectly Plaid Card Tutorial

Yesterday I shared with you our first Make n Take from my Holiday Catalog last weekend and today’s card is the second project everyone made that afternoon. The Wrapped in Plaid Suite of products has a lot of wonderful products both for card making and gifts. So it was a natural choice for the event and I love the fact that the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper comes in a 6×6 size so it is perfect for card making. You are going to love the gold foil that is in the patterns too.

Here is the card – It’s quick ad easy so it is great for making a ton of them for sending this Christmas.

Like it? This tree is so realistic with just one try since the stamp itself has wonderful shading to it. While I chose this tree for my project the plaid tree was also used and looked wonderful too. Don’t you love that? Lot’s of choices from just one set – and with the coordinating punch the choices are endless!

Here is a quick video tutorial for you showing you how I put this card together.

Holiday Catalog Kick Off Gather Together Make n Take

It finally feels a little bit like fall here in North Georgia with some cooler temperatures, while it is still in the 80s there’s a hint of cooler weather coming our way. And after spending the evening last night with my daughter and her band, watching them and the other county’s High School bands perform their half time shows it feels more like fall to me too.

Check out this fun fall card that we make using the Come to Gather Suite of products found in the Holiday Catalog.

This suite is filled with those colors that make us think of fall and I’m loving the Come to Gather Ribbon Combo Pack with it’s rich satin edge ribbon and linen thread – perfect for a range of products.

Today’s card uses the Brick & Motar 3d Embossing Folder to create some texture and interest in the background. Our embossing folders are perfect for this and make it quick and easy too.

Want to see how this card comes together? Check out my video tutorial and of course a printable PDF too.
