Cute Nugget Treat Holder

Finally the long awaited 3D project I’ve been wanting to share with you all.  I’m almost done editing the video and hope to have it out tomorrow sometime. Crossing fingers since it looks like more rain tomorrow that the Internet doesn’t go down. UGH!


Top Note Nugget Treat Holder Ok so this project was one that I got as a Swap at our Stampin’ Up! Convention! I absolutely LOVED it. The idea came from Laurine Hartman, in Beaumont, Texas. Let me first say that I would show you the one she made but it’s didn’t make the trip back home from Convention.  I mean I couldn’t let the chocolate melt it was SUPER HOT out there! Let’s just say it was Yummy and Beautiful too!  I would LOVE to know what Top Note Nugget Holder Inside you think!

As I mentioned above, I should have the video ready for tomorrow so come back and check it out!  I willl also list all the Supplies that were used in this project too!

Halloween Slider Treat Holder

DSC00265Hello All! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was busy. I had a chance to get caught up on a few things here at home and I did start making Halloween Goodies for my Son to take to school this Friday. I've got photos and will edit and share those later!DSC00264

Today I wanted to share this SUPER CUTE Slider card! It is one that I made last year. As I was going through the TONS of photos that I have on my computer I found it! I thought I had deleted it. Anyway, these are so fun to make! I am working on a quick tutorial for you. We'll see if I can do this without a TON of photos or if a video would be better. Ok, need to get some sleep thanks for stopping by!
