Heartfelt Treat Box

Today’s project is one that I made as a little gift for the NE GA Stampin’ Up! Demos recent shoe box swap that I hosted last Saturday.

This event is a new one that I’m hosting for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators, including those in North and South Carolina who want to participate and are in driving distance. It’s a lot of fun sharing and stamping together.

It holds a some heart shaped chocolate cakes in it made by Little Debbie.

So quick and simple to make and who wouldn’t like a little cake to sweeten their day?

Check out my video below to see just how easy they are to whip up!

Heartfelt Treat

Today’s project is one that I made for my Team OnStage After Party as a treat and it some how got buried on my desk. (lol if you could only see it).

Sound good? Hold on to your hats – this Mini is packed with fantastic product choices for us!!!

Cute? It’s a quick and easy treat for some one you love. Whether you make the treat yourself of buy prepackaged ones it’s sure to be a favorite, since who doesn’t love the salty and sweet combination?

Gather Together Pillow Box Treats

Here is a quick and easy treat that hold a few pieces of chocolate that you can put together quickly using our Kraft Pillow Boxes from the Annual Catalog.

How did I make these?

Well I used my Stampin’ Spritzer filled with alcohol and a few drops Pretty Peacock Reinker. I sprayed the Kraft Pillow Box until I got the depth of color I wanted and allowed to dry. If you find your box is getting too wet, allow it to dry between coats of color.

I used my Story Label Punch and punched out the handle before I assembled my pillow box. If you do this before you color it you will get more bleeding on the inside from the spritzing.

Then I decorated as desired.

Supplies:

Stamp Set: To Every Season (150531) and Gather Together (*150589)

Ink: Pretty Peacock (150083/150090), Cajun Craze (147085/119790), Crumb Cake (147116/121029), Terracotta Tile Classic Ink (150886/150093), Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack (147931)

Paper: Crumb Cake (120953), Terracotta Tile (150884), Cajun Craze (119684), and Whisper White Card stock (100730)

Accessories: Gathered Leaves Dies (*150662),  Story Label Punch (150076), and Linen Thread (104199)

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!

Team Time fun with the Come to Gather Suite

Last week I held my monthly Team Meeting, it is one of my favorite days of the month. We gather, share, stamp, and enjoy time with each other. I’m blessed with a wonderful team that is also a great group of stampers. Because we all have been stamping for different lengths of time and have different styles, I always look forward to seeing what they have been creating.

Want to see? The theme for our swap this month was fall and none of the projects disappoint!

Here is a great treat box with a drawer that slides out

filled with a banana Twinkie, yum.

And a cute little sticky note holder using our Stitched Nested Label Dies.

And here is a quick and easy wrap for some mini chocolate bars – the sentiment is from the Painted Harvest stamp set found in our Annual Catalog.

And a few more cards

Pat created this next project using our Copper Embossing Powder and the trifold card measurements I shared with you earlier

And this final card uses our Gift of Fall Add On Note Card, the coordinating Paper Pumpkin stamp set, along with the Seasonal Layers Dies and Rectangle Stitched Dies.

I love the way that our Paper Pumpkin Kits coordinating with our products, allowing us to have even more options.

And of course every team meeting includes celebrating accomplishments, stamping, and learning new things too.

Country Home Kit Kat Holder

This past weekend was my team Peak Princess event and so I wanted to make something special for my team members that earned this special event during the first quarter. Naturally the Country Home stamp set came to mind with it’s lovely sentiments and images. The fact that I could use the fun new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint on the cotton pods from the Holiday Catalog was an added bonus and a ton of fun!

Check out these elegantly wrapped treats

And since this holder fits a full size Kit Kat Bar there is plenty to share if you want too!

They are simple to make, use a sheet of card stock and I really like how the back opens to show your sentiment.

See how I made it and the magic of the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint here in my video tutorial.

Gather Together Mini Shipping Treat Box

Today’s treat box was created special for my Holiday Catalog Kick Off last Saturday and it will filled with some chocolate goodies. I had a lot of fun making them for my guests.

Any how here is the treat – a made with one of our Mini Shipping Boxes, so it will hold quite a bit.

Clearly I had a thing for caramel when I was shopping since when I started filling the boxes I realized I’d picked up 4 different kinds. Or maybe it was because I was looking at the color coordinating packaging! LOL! Do you ever do that?

I really love how these treat boxes turned out and I can’t wait to share the fun technique for creating these wonderful little leaves and stamping on the wood element pieces that I used to decorate the box. No inky fingers! Ahh….. the magic of stamping.

Why not check out my video tutorial? Not only will you see just how easy these treats were to make but I’ll share a couple of tips and tricks with you too.

Shoe Box Fun at the Team Weekend Getaway

I mentioned last Friday that I was getting ready for my team retreat – we gather 3 times a year for weekends of stamping, laughter, food and fun. I really look forward to these gatherings of uninterrupted crating time with my peeps. They are the best and while it is like a big slumber party we also get to get to use our Holiday PreOrder goodies to create. What could be better?

A shoe box swap of course! While it was a small gathering this time due to schedules we still had a wonderful time at our shoe box swap. It is always good fun and I love seeing what everyone is creating. Here are some of the projects.

This first card is for Halloween and uses the Apple Builder Punch (150663) and the coordinating Harvest Hello stamp set (150581).

This set is great for quick and easy card since it has a coordinating punch – and a super set for teachers and back to school projects since its got some wonderful sentiments too.

And here is a card that uses a bundle (153006) that is sure to be popular.

The Christmas Gleaming Suite is filled with wonderful products, and the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series paper (150429) includes Copper Foiling that is quite striking. We used the new Copper Delicata Metallic Ink for this project (150707/150708) and can you see the subtle shimmer of the Shimmy Crystal Effects (150892) that we used for the berries? So excited to have these new option for our crafting!

We also made this fun easel sticky note holder using the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper (149500).

And finally here is my card that I created using the Toile Christmas Bundle (152367) from the Toile Tidings Suite of products.

I just fell in love with this Distinktive stamp set as soon as I saw it – the cardinal is always a favorite of mine. I’ll be working up a tutorial for you and hope to share it in the next week or two as we get closer to the Holiday Catalog launch on September 4th.

And of course, what is a team event with out some door prizes?

Goodies from the Holiday Catalog catalog – winners got to choose their favorite accessories.

Team Swaps & More

Yesterday was my monthly Team Meeting and while I always enjoy these gatherings yesterday was extra special because I was able to surprise with my box that arrived just in the nick of time – So everyone was able to get their first look at the 2019 Holiday Catalog products too. Who doesn’t love that?

Here is a picture of my table spread out with PreOrder goodies for everyone to see.

And I did a very quick unboxing video the night before of my Holiday Catalog Preorder goodies for you too. I had hoped to share it yesterday evening, but the day went by too fast.

2019 Holiday Catalog Preorder Goodies Video

So what do you think? Does the Holiday Catalog look like it will be a lot of fun? I’m really looking forward to this weekend and my Team Retreat where I’ll get some uninterrupted play time!

Mean while would you like to see some of the wonderful swaps my team made? I can’t pick a favorite – can you?

This first swap is a 3d and you know how I love those! This great little Good Morning Magnolia Bag was filled with a couple of pieces of chocolate, Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper covered note pad and pen.

No, the chocolate didn’t survive long, but I’ll be enjoying the note book and pen for a while yet. LOL

And here is a wonderful card made with the Friend Like You stamp set (149237) and Friendly Silhouette Dies (149546) that come in a bundle.

I really love the soft feel of the sponged sky as a back drop.

And this next card was made using the Daisy Lane stamp set (149325) and both the Daisy Punch (143713) along with the Medium Daisy Punch (149517). Isn’t it great we’ve got two sizes of Daisy punches now?

And this final card was created with one of our past Product Medley Bundles, Everything is Rosy.

I’m soooo glad that Stampin’ Up! will be offering another one of these Medleys in our Holiday Catalog. So watch for that coming soon.
