A Little Bling

I really like the "What A Gem Paper Pumpkin" but I'm struggling with alternate ideas for it, which is fine because I'm excited to use it as it's intended. :) For this project I used one of the smaller boxes.  I chose to leave it open on one side so I can tuck jewelry inside. The "just a little bling for you" tag will make the perfect sentiment. 

Cupcake Celebration

This is such a sweet gift bag. I made it with the Build A Birthday stamp set and Big Bold Cupcakes Sizzlits, which are retired, but you can use the new Cupcake Cutouts Framelits. They look similar enough to get the same affect.  I absolutely love how it turned out! I'll probably put this project on a shelf in my stamp room instead of giving it away. :) 

Dressed Up Keepsake

Can you guess what I used to make this dressed up keepsake? I used the Dress Up framelits, Curvy Keepsake Box thinlits and the Blossom Petals Builder punch. Fun huh?! The little bundle of chocolates fits nicely inside! 

Lemon Friends

For some unknown reason I like the look of lemons on craft projects. Maybe it's the happy, bright yellow color?? It's definitely not the way the lemons make you pucker! :) This little project is a box of Lemonheads in a glassine envelope and a few added embellishments. 

Sugar Filled Crate

When I saw this cute crate in the new Stampin' Up! catalog I knew I needed to make one! So, I searched Pinterest until I found easy instructions. After cutting the pieces I put them in my woodgrain embossing folder to give it a realistic appearance. If you want to put anything heavy inside I'd recommend using a heavy cardstock or chipboard. Mine is holding chocolates, which may be a bit heavy, but so darn cute and yummy! 

Birthday Box And Card

This 3 x 3 card is made with the stamps from the Many Manly Occasions, Paper Pumpkin Kit.  The box on the other hand is a "one sheet box."  I found the instructions on  It's made with a 12 x 12 sheet of paper so it's a good size box and it was easy to make.

Paper Pumpkin Pouch

I purchased this adorable heart journal at Target, a few months ago. Yep, because it was gold! :)  Well I finally found the perfect use for it.  I made a birthday gift pouch with an envelope, washi tape and gold paper from the Banner Surprise Paper Pumpkin. The mint and gold look great together. 

Banner Surprise Nuggets

Stampin' Up! has new 2 X 8 cello bags and I like the size! Look how perfect Hershey's Nuggets fit inside. I used my June paper pumpkin to make a fun banner to attach on top. 

Candy Jar

The die cut used to create this cute little holder is by Sizzix, called  Food Jar.  It's the sweetest little jar and the die includes the spoon too. I crimped the top so it would look like a real jar then added the flower and bow to give it a feminine look.

A Little Something Gift Card Holder

I like the look of black and watermelon wonder together. This project is plain and simple yet sophisticated. Now that I look at it, I wonder if I should add a little bling before I give it away. ??  Even though it's a treat bag I'm going to put a card inside. Hmm...maybe the card should have the bling. :) 

Sweet Treat Box

I lucked out with this box die. I went to a local scrapbook warehouse sale and found this die by QuicKutz called treat box. It was $4.00! The die has a slot where I put the sucker, which makes a unique way to close the box. I was lucky enough to get another die called paper bag for $4.00. It was a great shopping day! :)

Birthday Banner Surprise Card

Where is the time going? It's already July and I just got around to making a card with my June Paper Pumpkin. I'm so excited about this kit! It's so fun and clever! I have to admit I'm not very excited about the block lettering on the stamps, but that's ok, I have lots of other choices in my stamp collection. ;) 

Star Spangled Purse

A Star Spangled purse. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
