Day of Celebration Card

This is a card I made for my club members to make. I also used it as a swap card for a swap I recently participated in. I love how the yellow polka dot embossed background really pops on the black card base. I finally got the chalk talk framelits and the new stamp set that goes with them and loooooove both! Thanks for stopping by!

Banner card

Valentine Card Swap

Here is a Valentine’s Day card I made for a swap I am participating in. It’s not too complex, but I used a ton of different products. My biggest tip on making this card is to use rolled up mini glue dots to hold the bakers twine onto the card.

The banner stamp set and punch will be available on Jan. 28 as a part of Sale-a-bration. For every $50 you spend during Sale-a-bration, you get a free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog. Check back on Jan. 28 to download the new catalog and see some more ideas!

Occasions Mini Release and Treat Holder Tutorial

The Occasions mini catalog has officially been released! I had several people over today for an open house to take a look at many of the products in person and to make a couple of make-and-takes. I’ve already dived into a lot of the new product and am excited to keep playing.  I mean, just look at all this awesome stuff (and I haven’t even ordered all of the stuff on my wish list yet!)

Occasions 2014 Stuff

 

The project I want to share with you today is one of the make and takes from my event today.  It is a little candy holder that is super easy to make and quite adorable IMHO. 🙂  It would be perfect for making Valentine’s Day treats for students or coworkers!

Valentine Treat Holder

I used the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to make this treat that holds a “fun size” Snickers bar.  Start with a piece of designer series paper that measures 2 in. x 6 1/2 in.  Score at 2 5/8 in. and 3 7/8 in.  Punch both ends of the paper.  The banner at the top that holds the treat holder together is a strip of cardstock measuring 1/2 in. x 3, scored at 1 1/2 in. so that it is easy to fold in half.  Notch the top so that it looks like a banner.  Finally, the little heart in the corner is just a piece of real red cardstock punched out with the Small Heart Punch.  I adhered it to the treat holder using a Stampin’ Dimensional and added a little rhinestone to the middle of the heart.  Super quick and easy!

Christmas Holiday Project Review

I always have bigger ambitions for holiday projects (okay…not just holiday projects…all projects) than I seem to ever actually accomplish.  Below are a few projects that I either made or swapped over the last month or so.  My biggest resolution this upcoming new year will be to get back to updating my blog, making tutorial videos, and trying to get closer to making all these ambitions I have actually materialize into something!
