Cocoa Cup

You can make a disposable coffee cup into a cute drink cup just by covering it with pattern paper.  I'd much rather drink from something cute, wouldn't you? :)

Let It Snow

I like the look of white on white, its very elegant. I've added  a button and ribbon from the sycamore street ribbon and button pack,  from the new sale-a-bration catalog, which will be available on January 22.

Snowman Card

When I saw this snowman card, Melissa Davies created, I knew I wanted to make one.  It was after the holidays, so I had to wait until this year, but he was worth it.  He is soooo darn cute!  He's made with the top note die, snowflake punch, 3/4 circle punch and 1/2 circle punch.  The brim of the hat is a piece of paper measuring 4 1/2 x 1.  The heart on the snowflake is from the owl punch. For his nose I took a small piece of orange paper and cut random pieces until I finally came up with a shape I liked.

Christmas Candy Jar

I love this jar from the perfectly preserved stamp set!   I stapled a tiny cello bag of skittles inside my project after using a square punch to make a rectangle shape, so the candy can be viewed.Love it!!

Apothecary Kiss Wrap

The largest die from the apothecary accents framelits makes a perfect wrap for three hershey kisses.  Here are two fun ways to decorate the wrapper.

Gingerbread Treat

How about a treat that stands on it's own! :)  This uses the envelope from the bitty box and envelope die and a frame from the peekaboo frames die. The two fit together perfectly to create a standing treat holder. The peeking gingerbread makes the treat that much cuter! :)

Kissmas Tree

Isn't this the cutest?!  You can find it on, along with easy to follow instructions.  I decorated my tree different and wanted my tree a bit shorter, so I only used one hershey nugget. Thanks for sharing this fun project Brenda! :)

Happy Holidays Tree Card

This card is made using the petite pennants builder punch.  It's a great way to use all the scrap pieces of designer paper.  I can't take credit for the idea and apologize because I can't find the original creator.  I appreciate they shared and their talent.

Gingerbread Lollipop

I thought I could live without the designer rosette die, until a friend of mine showed me a project similar to this, she made.  Of course, like many other dies, I had to have it! :) I'm not sure you can see the empty brad container behind the rosette.  I used the crop-a -dile to punch a hole on the side of the container for the sucker stick.  You'll have to use some hot glue to hold it securely.  I wrapped cellophane around my completed project, so it would look like a sucker.  I'll have to come up with more projects using the designer rosette, so I won't feel so guilty for buying it. ;)

Christmas Candy Bar Wrapper

Isn't this a fun wrapper for a candy bar?!  The instructions can be found on split coast stampers.  The paper bow is made with a 4 1/2 x 3/4 piece of designer paper and two large ovals, punched from the same paper.  The ovals are folded over, but not creased. I used a button for the center of my bow, but there are several fun options.  I think the bow makes all the difference, don't you? :)

Merry Christmas Tree Box

Template For Sale
This adorable Christmas box is made with my square hinged box template, which can be purchased in my "templates for sale."  Don't you think the 3D look of the Christmas tree is fun!?  The box measures 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 x 1 3/4.  Just imagine all the fun Christmas treats and gifts you can put inside! :)

Petal Cone Tree

The tree on this project is from the lovely as a tree set, it fits perfectly on the petal cone.  This would make a beautiful ornament or a fun way to package a Christmas gift.  

Snowflake Ornament Card

Don't you love this new single snowflake stamp, Stampin' Up! is offering?  It's a nice size and it matches the blossom punch, how clever! :)
