Trick or Treat

Just a little fun one today.....these are the new cellophane treat bags from the Stampin' Up Holiday Mini.  I made the "lollies" from the Newsprint Designer Series paper with my new Simply Scored tool (page 6 of your Holiday Mini).  These were so much fun to make once I got the nack of flattening them down into flowers, it only tooks about 2 mins to make each one.  Stay tuned for more lolly projects, check out the wreath in the Holiday Mini using the lollies - it's amazing and I have to try it!  I used the Batty for You stamp set, it's an all-time fave, and of course, I had to have it - BATTY for you!  These make some fun treats for friends.

That's all for now, I've got bread to make, muffins to bake, dinner to come up with and a mountain of laundry to have done before bedtime tonite!  Aaahhhh, Sunday afternoons spent getting ready for the week.

Thanks for stopping by......ttfn!

A little bit of Christmas....

I've been busy trying to come up with some ideas for Christmas time classes and clubs.  There are just so many cute things to try that I always find it hard to choose!  For this project, I chose the new Polar Party stamp set and the Pool Party paper (Designer and Cardstock).  The card is a shaker card made with the new shaker frames that make this project easy, peasy.  The inside is filled with the new Mica Flakes.  You can see all of these products in the Holiday Mini.  The little treat box is made with 2 scallop envelopes and I am off to see if I can find any mini candy canes to fill it with - wouldn't that just be so cute!!.  I somehow doubt I'll find any yet.....maybe I'm a little excited for Christmas - its my favorite time of year. 
Here's another fun one made with the Mini jingle bells - how can anyone not like Christmas with mini jingle bells!!  The stamp set is Holiday Happiness and the paper is from the specialty pack of designer papers called Holly Berry Bouquet.

Thanks for stopping by........enjoy!
