When I saw this treat box on fellow demonstrator Erica Cerwin’s facebook live I knew I had to recreate it. The worst part is that I could not find the Hostess limited edition Mint Chocolate cupcakes in 3 counties in Central Ohio grocery stores so I ended up using the traditional chocolate cupcakes. The box is made with a pull out drawer to hold the cupcake. The leprechaun is pieced using Stampin Up punches and the Hello Cupcake #149714 Sale-a-Bration stamp set and the sold out Call Me Cupcake Framelits. The background DSP is from the Happiness Blooms #148795 Paper collection and the sentiment is from the Amazing Life #148750 Stampin Up set.
I made the leprechaun as a plant stick for a Shamrock plant which turned out super cute too!
The Day by Day My Paper Pumpkin kit arrived at the perfect time for me to create a quick gift for a friend. I pretty much made it as designed but used other stamps to make it more themed to the month of year.
Happy 2019. Today’s post is the cover and the January calendar pages that I embellished for my friends annual desktop calendar that I get her each year. I purchased the calendar from Shutterfly.com like I always do but this year I made it special and embellished each month with various Stampin Up products. Each month I plan to post the calendar page for the month.
I try and make a handmade ornament every year and when I saw this on a fellow demonstrators blog I knew I had to make it. I bought the wood slices from Amazon and used the glitter embossing paste from Stampin Up to make the ice rink. I stamped the Spirited snowman #148075, colored him and hand cut him out. The sentiment is from the Merry Christmas Thinlits #147912 and the coordinating Merry Christmas To All stampset #147912. Love this sweet ornament and I even kept one for myself!
Here is my latest completed book folding project that I gave to a friend who is a thespian and avid book reader.
Book folding has become a passion for me and believe it or not it requires little supplies and is much easier than it looks! Recently I made this book fold book for my friends birthday who loves Starbucks. I even covered the book with a Starbucks bag. As I folded each fold I wondered if the Starbucks logo had a meaning. Turns out, in 1971, Starbucks (then a mere fledging coffee shop on the Seattle waterfront) was looking for a logo, something that would embody the seafaring history of its home city. … Heckler “pored over old marine books until he came up with a logo based on an old 16th-century Norse woodcut: a two-tailed mermaid.” So now you know!
