Blackberry Bliss Bag

When I saw my unopened blackberry bliss paper I was shocked.  I can't believe I hadn't used it.  It's such a beautiful, deep, rich color and looks great combined with pool party.

Cherry Thankful

Cherries remind me of summer, so I thought a cherry card was a great way to say welcome. In Utah we've had 90 plus temperatures the last few weeks so it feels like summer came weeks ago.  I guess I blinked and missed spring. 😫

Red, White & Blue Chocolate

Dont you love when you create something in just minutes?!  Normally I spend lots of time on each project.  This one came together quick and I love the results! I wrapped three Ghirardelli chocolate squares with paper from the Sending Love DSP. After tucking them inside a cello bag I used gold twine to attach a couple stars I made with my Stars Framelits.

Jelly Bean Pouch

I can't remember the last time I made one of these pouches.  They are so quick and easy to make.  I made mine with a 6x6 sheet of paper but they can be made in any size.  I'd recommend making them a little larger otherwise you're limited to what can be tucked inside.

Clear Celebration Chocolate Box

I found these Dove dark chocolates at Target.  I love the red, white and blue wrappers. I love dark chocolate too, so it was a win all the way around for me! 😋  Have you seen all the different candies with patriotic wrappers?!  They make it easy to create fun holiday projects. 👍

A Father's Day Card

Trees are great for many types of cards.  I chose to put a bold patterned paper behind my trees to create a Father's Day card.  I think the look is clean and classic, don't you? Happy Father's Day!

Donuts Just For You

The Paper Pumpkin for May was all about donuts and I missed out. ☹️ However, I wasn't going to let that stop me from creating with donuts!  So, I pulled out my 2", 1 3/4" and 3/4" punches and got busy creating.  After I punched a 1 3/4" circle from pink paper I free handed the outer edge to give it and "icing" look.  I searched through my stamps and found a sprinkle stamp in my Sweet Scoops stamp set, because donuts need sprinkles. 😊  The cover was made with my Fry Box Bigz Die.  The final and best part is the Hostess mini donut I placed inside. 😋

Mustache Box

I don't have many masculine stamps or embellishments but I do have this mustache die. After attaching a die cut mustache to a mini clip, I used it to attach a tag to my box.  Luckily I had masculine looking paper to create the tag. 😉 Now that I'm looking at this post, I find it funny I don't have masculine stamps or embellishments but I have a mini hammer. What?! 🤔😜

Mini Black & White Purse

Purse time!  I thought it was time to create one of my favorites, a purse! ❤️  I found the video for this purse, made from a 6x6 sheet of paper, on YouTube.  It's created by Maymay Made It Crafts.  Isn't it adorable? So is Maymay. Thanks for sharing!

Flowered Birthday Gift Card

I used a couple items out of the One Great Year Paper Pumpkin kit to create this gift card holder.  It's actually a card and gift card holder in one.  I created a small pocket on the front to hold the gift card, this way I can add a sentiment to the inside of the card.

Chocolate Pocket Change

Do you have stamp sets you just can't part with?  I'm so happy I kept a set called Pocket Fun (retired years ago).  It has a pocket stampsimilar to Pocketful of Sunshine, in the new Stampin' Up! catalog. When I saw this new set I was reminded of mine, so I pulled it out and created a pouch for pocket change...the chocolate kind! 😋

It's Your Birthday Curvy Keepsake

I have money rolled up and tucked inside this birthday creation.  Nothing better than cash on your birthday, am I right? 🤑 I made this gift with the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits, which Stampin' Up! retired. What?! Why?!...😫
