Apple of My Eye Fry Box

I love to pamper my customers and yesterday evening I got to hold my Sale-a-bration Celebration Customer Appreciation event. So today I thought I’d share the little goodie that greeted everyone at their spots.

Bright and cheerful – these little treats held some of those yummy candied oranges.

Did you know that this little goodie was created using several items from our Retirement List? I’ve included a complete recipe below for you. There is still time to get your favorite items, although some items are while supplies last!

Want to see some other cute items I made with the Fry Box die in the past?

This first one uses our Hot Diggity Dog Stamp Set which is also on the list.

And how about this cute little holiday treat. The Scallop Circle punch is part of the items we’re saying goodbye to.

Cute? Right? I’m going to miss this fun die and our Scallop Circle Punches when they retire on May 31st.

Stop back tomorrow when I’ll be sharing my little Thank You gift that everyone received.

Santa Fry Box

The Online Extravaganza is filled with great deals and here is a wonderful little treat that you can whip up for the holidays using several of the items on the list!

Santa Fry Box

This cute little Santa Fry Box was made with the Fry Box XL Die (132966) and the Floral Frames Framelits (127012). If you haven’t tried it already the Fast Fuse (129027) it makes putting these together a snap! And it’s mess free too.

Can you tell the beard was created with our Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (135315)? I wish my camera would pick up just how beautiful this paper is. I love this paper which shimmers and shines with the light and it’s on the Weekly Deals this week! So what could be better?

I chose the ribbon since it coordinated with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper I thought. It’s our Gold & White 3/8″ Glitter Ribbon (139614) from the Holiday Catalog and while I used the White  I think the bow would be great in gold too since it would highlight the belt buckle.

Want to see another Fry Box projects I’ve made? Great for those 4 legged family members you need a holiday treat for.

You can check out my quick video tutorial showing you how I made the back with our Designer Series Paper.

Holiday Gift Guide-001

Holiday Gift Guide – want some quick and easy holiday gifts for young and old? I’m happy to help you  find just the right gift.

Retreat Pillow Gifts & Another Video Tutorial

Pampering and pillow gifts continued through out the retreat – Saturday morning everyone received their goodie bag, or in this case Berry Baskets filled with items for the weekend’s Make ‘n Takes. Since the new 2015 Catalog had not gone live yet this was a huge hit since it contained  some of the NEW 2015 In Color Dotted Dotted Lace Trim and Envelope Paper!

Blue Mountain Weekend with Jini and Anna Goodie Basket

Isn’t the Berry Basket Die (137366) cute? I cut it first using Always Artichoke card stock and then ran through the Designer Series Paper pieces for just the sides. The cute little coordinating bow was made using the Bow Builder Punch (137414) and another pattern from the Designer Series Paper Stack. Love this option for Designer Series Paper – our stacks make it easy to mix and match like this since they contain 4 of each pattern. And with the new 6×6 option you can do even more!

Blue Mountain Weekend with Jini and Anna  (1)

And of course – here are some more of the little treats from the weekend.

Blue Moutain Weekend with Jini and Anna Candy holder Blue Mountain Weekend with Jini and Anna fry box

I love this little Hot Diggity Dot Stamp Set (134021/134024) and it’s sayings and of course, the fry box was filled with what else? Hugs and Kisses of course! The fry box was made with our NEW 2015 In Color Watermelon Wonder and the Fry Box Die (132966). If you want to learn how I made this, you can click HERE to see my video tutorial.

Blue Mountain Weekend with Jini and Anna petite purse

And the final project I’m sharing today had a little extra special something inside – Can you guess what it was?

Blue Mountain Weekend with Jini and Anna purse with scissors charm

The petite purse held a scissors charm using our Something Borrowed Embellishments from the 2015 Occasions Catalog!

Blue Mountain Weekend with Jini and Anna Sissors Charms

Now I know that these embellishments are retired at this point – but these scissor charms were so much fun to make I thought I’d share how I made them with you in my How to Make Scissors Charms Video Tutorial.

Easy right? And once you get started there are all kinds of combinations you can make. What fun I had designing these for our guests! Oops, I slipped in my tutorial and let the cat out of the bag – since I’ve made the blue scissor charms for my team members, the Blue Mountain Stampers and our retreat this coming weekend. Shhh…don’t tell them…LOL!

Here is a final picture of all the pillow gifts from the retreat.

And why not leave me a comment and let me know which pillow gift is your favorite? I’d love to hear from you.

Hot Diggity Dog!

Well today is going to be a baking marathon type day at my house. I’ve got two bags of bananas sitting on my counter top that I ran across last week on sale that are just calling my name. And it’s a good thing too since Larry just last night mentioned he was hunting for muffins in the freezer and couldn’t find any. LOL

I really enjoy my days holed up in my kitchen with the tunes cranked and the aromas filling the house. How about you, is baking one of the things you enjoy? Got a banana muffin recipe you love? Want to share it? Email me a copy ([email protected]). I love trying new recipes out and someone else’s favorite it always fun to try!

But before I get baking I wanted to share with you this cute little project that I made for the dog lovers in my life using the Hot Diggity Dog stamp set. This cute set was one that I had to have when I saw it since the images are cute and the sentiments are so much fun.

Hot Diggity Dog Fry Box

I’ve done my little Fry Box in Georgia bulldog colors for those UGA fans so this little guy seemed perfect for this project. Too cute, right?

I’m planning on making up a bunch of these for my friend’s pets for Christmas this year. Just a little something, something for the four footed family members. And wouldn’t it be a great little gift for someone who just adopted a new pet too?

I wanted to share with you my tip for creating the panel of color in the back of the Fry Box so I thought I’d put together a little video tutorial for you. Here is my Hot Diggity Dog Fry Box Video Tutorial. Why not check it out?

So what do you think? Fun? This Fry Box Die is great for all kinds of occasions – what would you use it for? Why not leave me a comment and let me know? And thanks in advance for taking the time to leave me a comment.
