Autumn Jar

Autumn Jar

By | 3-D Items, Gift Ideas, Home Decor | No Comments

Confession: This autumn jar project was an excuse to make this yummy fall snack mix that I have no business eating. There is just something so yummy about eating candy corn (otherwise known as pure sugar) along with peanuts. The salty, the sweet… I just can’t resist! So of course I had to create something pretty to hold the mix that I could photograph and share with you thus making the buying of candy corn a necessity. Thank you, thank you very much. This jar was very easy to decorate. I cut a piece of patterned paper 4″ x 12″, cut…

Go Wild with Bookmarks!

By | 3-D Items, Kids | No Comments

One thing I love about my oldest daughter is that when she gets an idea she makes a plan and she runs with it. She is an animal lover and in the last 2 years has raised her own money to adopt a whale and a sea turtle through the Pacific Whale Foundation. She sold cards made with a whale stamp to adopt the whale and made mini turtle cheesecakes to sell for the sea turtle. Yes, I have a little entrepreneur on my hands. So imagine her delight when earlier this week she found the World Wildlife website and an…

When I first started stamping back in 1998, one of the first things I learned how to make was an envelope bag. Otherwise known as a Bag-a-lope. Those cute little bags in the photo above?

There’s just something about turning something so basic and dare I say ugly into something fun like a little gift bag. And really “Bag-a-lope” is just a fun word to say. Go ahead and try to say it 5 times fast. Here’s a view from the top… The possibilities…

Mini Treat Bag Inspired By a Card

By | 3-D Items, Big Shot, Christmas, Gift Ideas | No Comments

When I saw this card by Jill Olsen I thought “I LOVE IT!!” I just loved the colors and design layout right away, but I thought the pom-pom trim might make it a little more difficult to mail… as in they would want to charge me more. I like to keep my cards pretty flat for mailing, but I immediately thought that this would make a great layout for a mini treat bag. And I was right!! Look what I made!!! I made a plain white bag with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Dies and Whisper White card stock, then…
