This is the treat I made for Dalton and Ava to give to their teachers.  It contains a hot chocolate packet, a Hershey Bar, and a small bag of marshmallows.  I used the retired Square Pillow box thinlet die and cut off the top two flaps.  Thanks for stopping by!

A Cup of Cheer

I had an idea to make some hot chocolate holders for my last craft show and had cut out several of these mugs but ran out of time so I thought I would use them to make Christmas cards instead.  I had scraps of this Presents and Pinecones DSP laying on my desk so I used it as well.  Thanks for stopping by!

Festive Birthday

You might need your shades for this card. it is so bright!  This is another card from our monthly Occasions class, we always do a birthday card since that is the card people send most often and it is my favorite to make.  I used the Biggest Birthday  Ever stamp set and the matching Wish Big Framelit dies.  The DSP is from Festive Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by!

Swirly Scribbles

We have been without internet for 10 days which is just crazy, of course Thanksgiving was in that 10 days but you would think they could of got it fixed sooner than 10 days.  Anyway, I have one of the cards from my monthly Occasions class to share today.  The In Colors are perfect for flowers and the Swirly Scribbles dies make such pretty wreaths.  The sentiment is from the Open Heart stamp set.  thanks for stopping by!

Lip Balm Holders

I get a lot of request for directions on these little lip balm holders so I thought I would write up the directions.  The main part is from the retired Two Tags Die but you could easily cut just the paper and add a decorative edge to the tops and fold it to form the bottom.  One of the die cuts from this die measure 4 x 2 3/4 and are scored at 1 3/4 from the bottom edge.  I cut  two of them and glued them together at the score lines.

The part that holds the lip balm measures 2 x 3 1/8 and is scored at 5/8,1 1/4,1 7/8, and 2 1/2 and then glued into the center of the two die cuts.

Just in case you are interested, I do these dress boxes in most of the Disney princesses for birthday parties as well as wedding dresses for weddings.  They have a small box built in which could hold small favors such as jewelry or candy.  I ship them flat but they are easily formed.

Here is the original one I made a few years ago.  If you have further questions, let me know.  thanks for stopping by!

A Lotta Gobble Gobbles

These cuties are for a custom order I got during my craft show.  My Dalton saw these and asked me why I had a lotta gobble gobbles hence the title for my post.  He couldn't remember what they were, just that they say "gobble gobble".  Love my sweet boy!  Thanks for stopping by.

Craft show Goodies

I thought you may be interested in seeing some of the items that were the best sellers from my craft shows.  A friend gave me several of theses empty cappuccino jars and I made them into Milk for Santa jars.  I sold out the first day and made a few more last week to have in my shop. 
These little snowmen treats were popular as well, they hold two chocolate nuggets.  I sold out of these as well plus have an order for 65 more.
I only  have nine of the 65 done so that is what I will be concentrating on tomorrow.
I had two left out of 25 of these snowmen hats.
More nugget treats with a reindeer tag.  I had several more custom orders as well which I will share as I get them ready.  Thanks for stopping by!

Santa's Sleigh Scene

I made these for my craft show and I had a customer to ask me to make her 6 sets of each of them for her grandchildren.  I mailed them out this morning!

For the sleigh I cut the runners twice and adhered them together to make them more stable.  The seat was made with a piece of cardstock that is 2 1/2 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches long, and scored at 1/4 inches on both sides of the long side and at 1 inch and 4 1/4 inches on the short side.

I stamped and cut four trees, scored them down the middle, and adhered them back to back.

I added a piece of white cardstock to the bottom of the snowman to make him stand up.  Thanks for stopping by!
