Happy Belated Valentine's!

Hello and Happy New Year! We've had a crazy start to 2016. I just wanted to post some sweet treats I made for friends and co-workers for Valentine's Day.

Raccoon Punch Art

These little cuties were a hit with everyone and so fun to make! 
Danee Hoang is the creator of this raccoon. 

Here is a closer look...

Ghirardelli Valentine Pouch

I also made these Valentine pouches which can hold a 
ghirardelli square or a hershey snack sized candy.

Hershey Kiss Treat Bags

You've gotta have Hershey kisses on Valentines! 
This fun treat was made with Valentine's paper pack 
I found in my ever growing stash.

Tic Tac Slider

This cute little treat was made with mini tic tac's found at Dollar Tree. All you need to do is slide down the cardstock to get to the tic tacs. 

Hershey Nugget Holders

And these sweet little boxes I made will hold 3 Hershey Nuggets.

Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

Reindeer Treat Box

Hello! I've been meaning to post this little guy for a while I put him on facebook back in October and received lots of requests for the directions. This is a super cute punch art box to make for the holidays.

Reindeer Treat Box

 Here is the original post from Facebook. This treat box will fit a regular sized Hershey bar...YUM!!! 

 To make the box you will need a piece of crumbcake cardstock measuring 10" x 3 1/2". Score 1/2" on the long side and 4 3/4", 5 1/4" on the short side. I distressed the edges with #126978 soft suede ink.

For the eyes you will need the #119869 1/2" circle punch, for the mouth #119873 3/4" circle punch, for the nose #119860 1 3/8" circle punch and the cheeks #133787 star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

To make the antlers and ears I used a Stampin Up's snowflake die which is now retired and expresso cardstock. I distressed the edges of the antlers and ears with #101731 white craft ink.

Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

Today is November 1st! And it is officially the Fall for me and that means Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I have always been thankful for spending time with my family and friends.

Thankful Card

But this year has been especially hard for us. We lost my father-in-law unexpectedly earlier this year and just found out my mother-in-law is not in remission anymore. This morning I woke up feeling so very blessed and thankful for all our friends and family who have been there for us...calling us, sending texts and praying for our family. You are absolutely AMAZING!!! I can't tell you what that means to us. So this year Thanksgiving is definitely going to have a deeper meaning for me and my family. GOD is GREAT!!!

Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!

All Hallow's Eve!

TGIF! So following are the treats I have made for the NBC girls.

When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs & whispers,
tis, near Halloween.

Witches' Night Treat Box


To make this topper I used the #139708 Witches' Night stamp set on Very Vanilla cardstock. I also used the #139605 Black Glimmer Paper and Rhinestones to add to the detail.

These brightly colored owls are so fun. I used the #139690 Howl-o-ween Treat stamps and #139663 Boo to You Framelits to make them along with the #139584 Happy Haunting DSP.

For this little treat I used the #133774 Envelope Punch Board to make these quick treat pouches.

And these are the same boxes I made here I just used Razzleberry cardstock.

The toppers for these were made with #133674 Kraft cardstock measuring 4" x 4 1/2" scoring in the middle.

This last box just makes me smile. I used the Tagged Tote & Treat Tote framelits from Reverse Confetti.

Hope you enjoy...thanks for stopping by!
