Love Blossom Domed Treat Box

A New Catalog is a lot of fun – and of course when it’s Sale-a-bration, it’s even more fun! So to start the New Year off with a bang I held my NEW Catalog Sneak Peek Event on the 3rd of January – two days before the catalog launched! That meant that everyone who attended was able to play with some of the new products and see them before it went live! Whoo hoo! A great way to start off the New Year, right?

In today’s post I’m going to share with you some photos of the event. This first one is a picture of the classroom set up – to show you a bit of what greeted everyone who attended.

And this second one shows you what was at everyone’s spot.

Everyone who attended received a couple of special treats from me – and in today’s Video Tutorial I’ll show you how the little chocolate holder was made.

I call these Love Blossom Domed Treat Box – I’m so original, not  with names – but well I called them this because they’re domed or treasure box shaped!

I used our new 6×6 paper stack, Love Blossoms since they were the perfect size! I didn’t even have to cut the paper!

Want to see a quick video tutorial on how to make them? Well, here you go. (Sorry about the froggy voice, I’m fighting winter allergies and just couldn’t wait any longer to share this with you.)

A great project, huh? And it holds quite a bit so you can put almost any item you’d like inside. Of course, I wanted to pamper my guests with some Valentine chocolate, (before Larry found it!) so this was perfect.

And of course, our Honeycomb Happiness (Sale-a-bration 1412788/141291) is an item that you can earn FREE during Sale-a-bration. I love the images and thought the sentiment was perfect for this project!

I’ve given you a complete supply list for this project below. And I don’t know about you, but I find the Envelope Punch Board a fantastic addition to my stamping supplies and have been finding all kinds of things besides envelopes to make with it!

Another Pictogram Punches Swap

Today’s post will be short and sweet since it has been a busy week and I’m getting ready for my Blue Mountain Stampers’ Weekend Getaway today. I love these weekends since they are a time to share ideas and creative energy with my fellow demos. If it is something you’d like to know more about contact me and I’d be happy to share with you  how to join in the fun.

Anyhow – on to today’s card. I love the mono-chromatic look and today’s swap from convention fits the bill. Lisa created this card using different shades of purple – and who doesn’t like purple, right? It’s always been one of my favorite colors. I even did my bedroom in purple as a teen.

Lisa used the Pictogram Punches stamp set to create the focal point on the card – clever huh? I love the versatility of this stamp set. It is a great year round choice for all kinds of occasions. You can see the black & white card using this set HERE.
