So Sentimental Gift Tag

Look at how “SWEET” this is! I received this from a good friend of mine, Pat Brannin. She just MADE my day and I had to share this with you because it coordinates with the Class to Go I am offering now until the end of the month! Check out the Class to Go HERE.

Pat is SO CREATIVE – look at her attention to detail in how she coordinated the tag to the actual caramel corn tag! I LOVE IT! Thank you Pat! You made my day! This is too cute to eat! LOL

Hershey Candy Bar Video

Hi Stamping friends!

You are so sweet, thank you so much for your kind sweet words about the Hershey candy bar Valentine treat! Here is a video I made today to help you with the details and measurements! I am blown away by your interest in this!

Here’s a photo of the completed project!

Please let me know if I can help you with your stamping needs!

 

Pazookie Christmas Treats

Do you know what a “pazookie” is? It’s a half baked cookie and then you add ice cream on top after you take it out of the oven. That is one of my favorite desserts! I figured out a way to make individual pazookies and gave them as a party favor! They are individual servings in a small Kerr jar. Then when they get them home they just pop the jar in the microwave for 15-20 seconds and add their ice cream!

You can use your favorite cookie dough, but I went the easy route and just bought pre-made Toll House cookie dough. I have the instructions on the tag below. FUN easy gift!

Here’s the assembly line! LOL

Team Gifts

This is what I gave my team for attending OnStage this year! The acrylic block was etched by Tamra Davis. Each block was personalized with their name, along with the 30th Anniversary logo. Tamra has an awesome Etsy site HERE. She’s a joy to work with! #yesievenwrappedoneformyself   LOL It will be a great keepsake for those who attended!

The pizza boxes are a fun way to dress up any small gift! I just cut Designer Series paper to fig the sides and top. I cut a square hole in the top of the pizza box, then adhered a Window Sheet to the square hole. Covered it with Designer Series Paper and some gold shimmer paper! I found the little gold sparkle ornament at Hobby Lobby.

It is also tradition to make roommate gifts! This is what I gave my roomies!

I made a return address label and ordered it through Rubberstamps.com I also made a little treat box to wrap it in that had Minnie Mouse clip on it. I made the clip out of circle punches and a mini clothespin. I also made some Disney treats by melting a Hershey’s kiss on a square pretzel for a couple minutes, then pressing M&Ms into the pretzel!

The treats were so fun, I thought my grandkids would get a kick out of them as well. The next day I let them create their own, too! You can see each grandaughter’s personality captured in these photos. Pictures speak a thousand words! LOL I would say they both have a little of their Grammy in them! LOL

Here are all the supplies I used for the pizza box gift.

….And There’s’ MORE!

Here’s a table gift the gals received, it’s a little Stampin’ Up trash bin filled with “white trash” treats inside! Basically you just add the food you like and mix it with vanilla almond bark! The popcorn is Chester’s Puffed Corn (looks like packing peanuts – I teased the gals and said packing peanuts were the mystery item in there LOL)

Here’s a simple card – what you can’t see in the photo is the whole front of the card is spritzed with our new Frost Shimmer Paint. You just put a tad bit in our spritzer bottles, then fill the rest with rubbing alcohol. There is a nice shimmer to the WHOLE CARD!!!!

 

We had a swap contest for the gals, and here’s the winning card! Isn’t this adorable! Pat Brannin was the winner – she was our “ROYALTY” and got to bask in it with a crown! LOL She used the “eclipse” technique. Such a cute card for Halloween!

Here she is with her prize, the whole kit and caboodle for Santa’s Workshop Cards on page 21 of the holiday catalog! WAY TO GO PAT!!!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hope you have a wonderful day! Here are some cookies I made – still playing around with my airbrush sprayer that I got for Christmas! It’s so much easier than piping words with frosting! One little stencil is all it takes (and the airbrush system LOL)

Here’s a Valentine’s Day card for you, using the eclipse technique! I like to adhere with foam strips when doing this technique. The foam strips are a little bit thicker than Dimensionals and really give your projects a POP! To create the eclipse look, simply set the heart framelit right on top of the floral image you stamped on the Very Vanilla cardstock. Cut out the heart. Adhere the heart to Calpyso Coral cardstock and fussy cut close to the edge. Then POP this heart piece on the front of your card using Foam Strips! By the way, this stamp set is SO DETAILED, it looks 3-D with the shading of the rubber! VERY COOL!

The stamp set and ribbon are FREE with a qualifying order during Sale a Bration!

 

Football Cookies! PLUS Hershey Nugget Purse!

Another passion I have, besides papercrafting, is cookie decorating! Here are some of my treats for Super Bowl Sunday yesterday! I got an airbrush for Christmas for my cookie decorating, I just need more practice now!

Here’s a project – so simple and easy! Brenda Quintana has an awesome tutorial on how to make these, individually OR if you are making a bunch of them assembly line style! Her instructions can be found HERE. I added a tassel to my purse by wrapping the Baker’s Twine around my finger about 3 times, then tying off. This 12×12 Designer Series Paper is FREE by ordering $50 during Sale a Bration!

Hope you enjoy this little nugget treat!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Hope you have a Merry CHRISTmas!!!!

Don’t forget the REASON for the SEASON!!!

Here’s a little Christmas ornament I made using the Christmas Quilt Bundle. Get it before Jan. 2nd, because this one isn’t carrying over!

Spooky Cat Card and Fun Halloween Activities with Stella!

Here’s another card using the Spooky Cat bundle! It’s not too late to get this stamp set, punch and paper!

  • The Basic Black and Very Vanilla cardstock both have been embossed with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.
  • Larger square is 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″
  • Smaller square is 1 5/8″ x 1 5/8″
  • Cat eyes are black rhinestone jewels
  • This is a great layout to use for any season! I love how it showcases the Designer Series Paper!
  • Recipe at the end of post.

I love baking with my grandkids. Here’s Stella and I making some spider cookies! They are just peanut butter cookies with Reeses peanut butter cups in the middle! Because the cookie is hot out of the oven, it will melt it a bit and it will look smooth. They were so much fun!

We also made a skeleton out of Qtips! Thanks, Pinterest, for the idea!

Stamp on Cookies!

One of my downline, Jean Piersanti, hosted a cookie class! We had so much fun learning some helpful tips in decorating cookies and how to stamp on them!

It’s super simple, use your favorite cookie and icing recipe. Let the icing dry completely. Then color your stamps using an edible marker like this. They can be found HERE. Stamp the image on your cookie. It’s as simple as that!

This Little Piggy stamp set is perfect for this! I colored him in using Edible Pink Dust Powder with a brush found HERE.

Notice the cute little pizza box, which will be available in the new holiday catalog coming out Sept. 1st!
