It is the lit
tle things that make life sweeter. At my recent card class, my customer, friend and fellow card maker, Sheri made me the sweetest little strawberry basket using the now retired Basket Builder Framelits. The basket is just precious and big enough to hold no more than 2 Hershey kisses or a bunch of mini MnM’s. I love the removable lid and can’t wait to make these too.

All the The mini egg cartons #142776 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog are perfectly sized to hold small goodies. The mini egg cartons are fun to color with Stampin Up reinkers and either water or rubbing alcohol and a spray bottle to cover the naked containers with fun spring colors.
If you like the mini egg cartons be sure to order them soon because they made it to the Stampin Up retiring list and therefore will only be available while supplies last. Be sure to check out the Retirement List and take advantage of some items being discounted.

To kick off my first workshop of 2017, I hosted my April workshop and put the projects in a cute basket I got from the Dollar Tree. If you look closely, you can see the cute Easter treats that I made. I made the cute mini egg cartons.
I started off with a bare mini egg carton #142776 from Stampin Up and misted it with water and Stampin Up re-inker to color the bare carton. I filled the carton with mini chocolate treats and of course jelly beans. I then added a piece of paper from the Stampin Up Succulent Garden DSP collection #142778 and then tied it up with a piece of satin old olive ribbon. I finished it off by making a tag using the super sweet Basket Bundle #143186 and attached it with the a piece of linen thread.
Because no Easter basket is complete without a peep, I made a free standing food truck box from the Stampin Up Food Truck stamp set that is no longer available. I accented it with eggs and the sentiment from the Basket Bundle stamp set in the Stampin Up occasions catalog.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I love St.Patrick’s Day and did not get around to making any cards this year so instead I supported a local bakery , Susie’s Sunshine Sweets in Granville Oh, and purchased the adorable treats and but them together in a leprechaun hat for a few of my dear friends. Hope your day is lucky!
Today’s post features the all new Dragonfly Dreams # 142924 stamp set from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set. Combine individual stamps to create the final image you want in the colors you want. This stamp set also coordinates with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749. Cammie brayered and sponged her background and then it into 4 pieces and matted on black cardstock. “Stamp like a dragonfly, sting like a bee.” It’s almost the same as Muhammad Ali’s motto, but much craftier.
Here are the cute office treats Cammie made for her husbands office using the now retired Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits die. So cute when you use different papers to create the old fashioned Christmas lights.
Happy birthday to our sweet niece Meridith. She is sweet and 16 and loves Starbucks so her mom had a special cake made for her.
