Tasty Treats

2015_09_02IMG_8771I made these cute bags at a Stampin Up workshop held earlier this summer and I just got around to filling the darling bag with treats to give to a coworker as a pick me up gift.  I started with a Stampin Up Sketched Dots glassine treat bag #138316 and then made the tag using the Cherry on Top DSP paper stack #138443. I added a coordinating 1 3/4 “scallop circle #119854 and layered with a 1 1/2 inch circle embossed with Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #133520.  I stamped the sentiment from the All Boxed Up #139340 stampset onto a Washi Tape #138296 punched piece and then accented with a Bitty Butterfly #129406 and an Itty Bitty flower #133787. The finished tag is attached the folded bag using a super cute mini clothespin #133764.

Mini Beach Bags

2015_07_02IMG_8837 Check out these super cute mini beach totes made using a piece of the Stampin Up Maritime DSP and coordinating cardstock.  These little totes are the perfect favor for a beachy theme event or even for the 4th of July.  The Maritime DSP is on the retired list but as luck would have it Stampin Up recently added it to the Stampin Up Clearance Rack at a rock bottom price.

Warning… These totes are addicting to make because they are simple and fun to make.  Plus it is a perfect way to get rid of your scraps. They are perfect for candy and a gift card.

Monster Hugs



As a child I loved Valentines day in school.  I always loved making the cure Valentine box each year and getting the store bought valentines and spending hours deciding which classmate got what valentine.  Fast forward 45 years and things have not changed…. I still love Valentines even the pre-printed ones called Monster Hugs Valentine kits that Stampin Up introduced in a boy and girl version complete with googly eyes!  When I saw them I knew I had to have them so I did and then realized what in the world am I going to do with 18 boy and 18 girl valentines. For today’s post, paired the Monster Hug Valentine kits with the Yippee Skippee  #131344 stampset to create a fun card.  I added the monster to coordinating cardstock and in the folded arms I tucked away some cash or candy to mail to my sweet valentine youngsters.  When the arms open up and the surprise is removed it reveals just how much I freaking love them them.2014_02_06IMG_0630

And if that is not enough I even made custom boxes to attach the sweet monster to and added chocolate kisses for my friends at our dinner party. Even more I still have some left and can use them as designed for treats for the neighborhood kids with treats in them.2014_02_06IMG_0633

Grab Your Broom

Grab your broom and Fly away!  I went into production making these cute broom treats.  I tucked a piece of black licorice (my favorite candy in the whole world) into a 1″ x 5″ cellophane treat bag #124134.  I then made the broom whisks by cutting a strip of cardstock ( I used creamy caramel-retired) and fringed the top and bottom and put a piece of sticky tape the whole length and the wrapped it tightly.  I secured the whisks with a piece of twine wrapped several times around the middle.  I finished it off with an accent from the Mixed Medley Hostess set #128057 from the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog.

Look the brooms stand up on their own! I love how these turned out and found that treats like this make adult women so happy and it is a great way to get rid of retired cardstock.  Funny thing though is that my older brother thought it was a lot of work for 1 piece of licorice.  That is definately a guy for you!
