Woo Hoo Treat Bag

Happy Monday! Tuesday is the last day for a couple of people who have been training at our Nothing Bundt Cake store. So I thought I would make them a little treat before they leave.


Woo Hoo Treat Bags



My inspiration came from some bags Becky Roberts made...thanks for sharing. To create these little cuties I simple took a 3" x 3" piece of cardstock scored it in the middle. I used the #132968 Word Bubble, #132173 Banner Framelits along with the heart punch from the #133787 Itty Bitty Accents Pack and the #133203 Just Sayin' stamps.


These were so easy and fun to make!


Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

Ho! Ho! Ho! Tri Fold Gift Card

Good Morning! As promised, following is the Santa card we made last night. We had such a great time making Christmas cards.

Ho! Ho! Ho! Tri Fold Gift Card


I started with stamping the Santa image onto a piece of white cardstock then I colored in his face with #129370 Skin Tone Blendabilities and his hat with #131259 Real Red Stampin' Marker. I applied #133751 Dazzling Diamonds with a #100425 glue pen on his beard, eyebrows and hat trim. Then added a cute pom pom to his hat. I used the #132967 Starburst Framelit to outline my Santa. TIP: Cut your image before applying your Dazzling Diamonds. Then I distressed the edges with #101731 White Craft Ink.  


This is a tri fold pop up gift card measuring 12" x 4 1/4". 
Scoring on the long side at 4" and 8".



The top of the card rests on the "ho! ho! ho!" image which was attached with dimensionals and distressed around the edges. I used the #133520 Decorative Dots Embossing Folder for this.


Here is the top and bottom of the card.


In the middle section of the card I attached a gift card...
look it's a Chipotle gift card...my favorite! :o)

Christmas Card

Happy Tuesday! I'd like to show you one of the Christmas cards we are going to make for the Stamp A Stack on Friday.

Winter White Pine Cone Card


I used red ribbon to give this card a "pop" of color.

I have seen some beautiful cards on Pinterest with this stamp set and that is where my inspiration came from. For this card I used the #135107 Ornamental Pine, #130517 Gorgeous Grunge and the #135017 Good Greetings Hostess set. Along with #122923 Island Indigo cardstock, 109132 White Embossing Powder and #101731 White Crafting Ink.

Fellow Retreaters

Good Morning! I wanted to share with you some of the super crafty girls at the retreat this past weekend. 


Lori the organizer of the retreat. This girl can crank out the projects. She brought each of us a wooden witch to embellish.


Here is Lori's super cute witch.



Next are Amy and Jenni...sisters! 
 


Amy painted these very cool pics...


while Jenni worked on Christmas cards and her stylin' witch.


Here is Michelva very organized and color coordinated. Sorry I didn't take a picture of your gorgeous Advent box.


This is Traci, my roomie:o) who sat next to me...we talked and exchanged lots of crafting tips and tricks. Sorry no pics of your cute embossed cards...I dropped the ball:o(.


And here is Angie...she shared some very sweet stories about her students. She had several stacks of 6 x 6 paper pads to make her colorful and fun cards.


Angie's card for Nat'l Card Making Day which was Saturday.

I had such a great time crafting with these girls!


Here I am posing for a pic with this fun Halloween frame 
Lori made for us to take pics with.


  
This was my drink of choice for the weekend...the girls made this yummy drink with dark hot chocolate and cookie dough vodka.
 


Just a few more pics I took at this cozy getaway...




And on the way home we stopped in Canton to do a little shopping!

Weekend Retreat

Happy Hump Day! I had a great time at our crafting retreat this past weekend. 

Lindale, Texas near Canton

Here is the cottage we stayed in...so cute and cozy! 


My Favorite Things

Before our retreat Lori asked each of us put together a goodie bag of our favorite things. I love Halloween and here is what I came up with for my treat bag.


I used the Raven stamp on a brown paper bag and embellished it with black and orange ribbon and added a little bling to the Raven's eye. I love anything miniature so I added a little spoon and mini clothes pins, rhinestones, ribbon, and a Halloween stamp.

 

To add to the bag I created this small treat holder which holds a snack size Hershey...Chocolate...I love Chocolate!


I made these treat pouches for a workshop. Click here for the template.



I hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!
