Chocolate Petite Pocket

Darn, I was just starting to have fun with the petite pocket die and they retired it. :(  I used it to make this pouch for a small package of M&M's.  The apothecary accents framelits was used to get the decorative top on the pocket.  I can't wait to see the new big shot products Stampin' Up! will offer!

Dress Card and Cupcake

I know you can't tell from this photo but the dress and cupcake are made with the same patterned paper.  I used the scallop circle bigz to make the cupcake.  I cut out 8 pieces, wrinkled them individually in the palm of my hand, gently unfolded each one, stacked and attached them in the center with a brad. Once they were attached I started with the center scallop and worked down, scrunching each one tightly upward and inward, around each another. Lastly, I gently unfolded each one into the form I desired. Hint: the thinner the paper the better. The cupcake liner is from my pantry!

Happy Birthday Candy Box

This little box has a top that can be left open to expose the content. I only decorated the inside cover. Now I'm thinking I need to decorate the cover on the outside too. That way it's cute open and closed! :)

Graduation Card

Congratulations to the class of 2013!
 I used the Adorning Accents Edgelits to cut about an inch off an envelope, then attached it to a notecard.  Now the card slips into the envelope and it becomes part of the card.

Here's a fun little way to dress up the popular paper straw! :)

Just For You Gift Sack

Another bow made with the Dress Up framelits. However, this time for the center of the bow, I used the Artisan Label punch which is in the new 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! catalog.  If you haven't seen the catalog you're going to love it.  It's filled with so many adorable new things!

Butterfly Lip Balm Cover

This is holding a Softlips lip balm. I created it with the third largest die from the Window Frames Collection Framelits. I scored it at 1 1/2, 2 1/4,  and  2 7/8. I only embossed the front section with the Chevron embossing folder. A few different tags and ribbons and you have a small gift for a friend.

Dress Up Card Stand

After thinking I didn't need this die I sure seem to use it often. :)  I folded a piece of kraft cardstock in half and placed it a little below the top of the neck so it wouldn't cut. Now it stands and opens like a card!  The polka dot dress is only connected at the shoulders so it can be lifted with a message underneath. I placed a bracelet over the top to make a nice gift for a special someone.

Just For You Petal Cone Container

I'm sad to see the Petal Cone die going. :(  There are so many fun ways to use it, for example it makes the cutest little take out box, like the one I created.  Who says just because it's gone from the catalog you have to stop using it!? Not me....

Tootsie Roll Pop Top

A peek at the new Stampin' Up! catalog gave me this fun idea.  I used the Oval Accent Bigz and the Hearts a Flutter Framelits to create this fun topper for a Tootsie Roll Pop. It's such a fun way to present a little treat.

Pinwheel Jar

I learned the best trick from a local TV program.  If you stretch a balloon over a jar, you get a colorful jar!!  How fun is that!! :)  I added a little pouch with a Hershey mini candy bar and a fun paper straw to spice it up. :)  Love the pinwheel, but I struggle putting the little bugger together.
