Hello Gift Bag

I created this pink gift bag with my Gift Bag Punch Board.  The scallop along the top was created with a die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  I used the same die to scallop a gold foil sheet to create the second scallop layer.  Don't you love the pink and gold together? 
The black circle is 2 1/2" and the "hello" is from the Hello You Thinlits.  I had the cute black and white tissue paper, but I think it would've been easy to create something similar, don't you? 

Butterfly Basics Birthday Card

Is there anything better than a card that comes together in minutes and looks nice?
The one problem for me, when I give it away, I feel like I cheated a bit because it didn't take much time or effort.  Silly huh?

Lots To Love Chocolate Box

I had to have the Lots To Love Framelits before Stampin' Up! retired them. This sweet little box is the first project I chose to make.  It only needs to be cut once and scored at 2 1/8" and 2 3/4".  Easy peasy!  That's why I chose it for my first project! 😏  The handle is a 1/4" x 7" strip of pink cardstock.  It matches my closure, which is a 3/4" circle. The notch in the circle was made with one of the dies in the set.
It's a brilliant little die.  I know I'll be using it often to make closures on future projects.

Birthday Wishes & Kisses

Who doesn't want a "kiss" for their birthday? 😘😊 As I searched through my stamps I found a Stampin' Up! Hostess set called, Happiest Birthday Wishes.  It had this fun medallion looking birthday stamp.
I stamped it once on blue paper and again on purple paper.  It took a few circle punches and a scallop circle punch to combine the two.  Luckily, the colors look nice on the black and white topper I created with the Window Frames Collection Framelits.

Brushstroke Blossoms Card

I used a stamp set that retired years ago by Stampin' Up! to make this card.  It's a two step stamp set called Brushstroke Blossoms.  I don't think I've done two step stamping in a very long time.  I need to do it again, soon.

Pansy Hello Treat

I adore the simplicity of this treat holder.

I made it with the Bag W/Scallops, Sizzix Bigz Die.  I punched the Stampin' Up! Pansy Punch three times then folded and curled each petal until I created the look I wanted.  The center of of the flower is a faceted gem.  It gives the flower a nice little sparkle.  A small piece of washi tape is under the tag I created with Stampin' Up! Tiny Tags stamp set and Jewelry Tag punch.

Ice Cream Matchbox

Aren't these the cutest?!

I used my Sizzix, Matchbox Bigz Die and Martha Stewart, Drippy Goo Punch to make this yummy treat. πŸ˜‹  I created another cute ice cream box you can see and purchase in my Etsy shop. See it here.

Sweet B.B. Baker’s Box

The Stampin' Up!, Baker's Box Thinlits are so easy to make and so darn cute.

This time I turned it into a "Sweet BB" box.  I used the Stampin' Up!, Admit It and Something For Baby stamp sets and the Baby's First Framelits.

Cottage Wall Purse

This little cutie is made with the Sizzix Bigz die, Purse w/Ornate Flap.  I've had the die for years and didn't keep the instructions on assembling it. First mistake!
After way too much time putting it together, I embellished it with the little straps on the bottom.  Second mistake! It's suppose to fold open and lay flat.  Well, it can't do that now! πŸ˜†
All in all, I like it!

Happiest Of Days Gift

This little cake from the Stampin' Up!, Happiest Of Days stamp set looks great on everything!  You can color it to match any project.

I'm lovin' the soft shades on this cake.  I especially love the sweet little container.  I've had it in my stash forever and now I found the perfect way to embellish it.
