Little Monster Patties

Hi Stampers & TGIF!!!  This week flew by!  Spent most of the week getting "caught up", re-organizing, stamping here and there.  I wanted to share a picture of the little Halloween party favors I worked on Saturday Night.  I am making these for my Son to take to his class mates!

Little Monster Patties
Lot's of Little Monsters! Are these not the cutest??

I got this idea from a Swap at Convention! (Traci DeGolier) LOVE THEM! Of course there is a Peppermint Candy sandwiched between the Scalloped Head.

My son did to and wanted me to make them for his classmates.  So yes lot's of work BUT what's a Mom to do? Make them of course! LOL!

Little Monster Patties 1Here is a close up!  I just love the one-eyed Monsters don't you?

I used Stampin' Up! Punches for them. Scallop Circle Punch, 1/2 & 3/4 " circle punches and the Word Window Punch. I will show you the finished packaging when I am done with them.

Basket and Card Share

Dline Makentakes Hi Stampers,

Before I call it a night I wanted to share the projects my Downline and I did yesterday.  Christina, Jackie and Theresa thank you for coming and looking forward to our next get together!

I will post the measurements and how to's of the cute basket we made. Super easy and FUN!  Love that combo don't you?

Thanks for stopping by and until tomorrow….

Happy Stampin',

Blast from the past

Good Morning Stampers! Hope your Tuesday is going well! I wanted to share a project that I shared awhile ago and I didn't realize that the link to the original person I got it from is no longer available OR that I never put the measurements for the project!  So I would like to do that now.  Which project am I talking about you ask?  Well it was and still is a very addicting one, yes I am still making them and they are just the easiest and cutest things ever!  You can see that link HERE!

Valentine Nugget Purse Holder 1It's the Nugget Purse OR Ghirardelli Purse Holder.  I did a video on the the Ghirardelli Size which you can view HERE  and the Nugget purse is put together the same way it's just different measurements.  Which I'll give you now with a few tips.

 Nugget Purse Holder:

Card-stock measures 3 x 5
Score as follows:

3" side – 1/2 in each side I did 2 1/2 turn then 2 1/2 on other side

 

 

 

Valentine Nugget Purse Holder 5" side – 1 1/4 and 1 3/4 this is the front of the purse so if you are using a patterned paper make sure that when scoring it looks upside down. When you fold it UP it will be the right way. Does this make sense? If not let me know I can always take photos so you can see it.

Ok, so now the tip on how to get more bang for your buck.  If you have the 6×6 Designer Series Patterned Paper that you can choose when you Host a Party you can get 2 purses out of it PLUS the wrappers for your nuggets! 

What no LEFT OVERS? LOL! Love it!

Here is the photo so you can see how I did this.

 Well I sure hope this is  helpful and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

 Happy Stampin',

Valentine Class Share

Evening all. Well today was a busy Monday lots going on. I wanted to share my projects and cards that we did for my class that I had on Saturday. Now I have already shared all the Cards, just not the 3D projects. I do have to say I think the favorite was the Lion Card.  I am showing a group shot but will share the 3D projects with more detail on each photo soon. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Valentine Class
Valentine Class Projects & Cards
On top are the 3 cards that I've shared before. The 3D projects from left to right are:
Love Top Note Die box – Saw this on SCS website and they have a great Video Tutorial and it was super easy to do. The Middle is from "Stampin'  Up!s" New Petal Cone die – LOVE this die and was inspired by the On Stage presentation from Bonnie at Leadership in Nashville. Then I saw the one that my lovely Florida friend Sharon Field made, and HAD to "CASE" that Tag. You can't see it to well but you'll see it in a close up photo when I post it. It just gave it that extra "touch" and I think all the Ladies loved it too. Then the last one I cased from "Becky Roberts" she shared some super cute treat holders that she made during the Holidays for a craft fair and they were just the cutest so I new I had to make some for Valentines Day.

Questions please don't hesitate to ask. Check my events for upcoming classes

Treats for Christmas

Christmas Treat FavorsGood Evening All!  It's been pouring all day here in Cali! YUCK! It doesn't let up!

I wanted to share real quick project with you all.  These are the little treat bags I was talking about that I made for my son's class. 

I just added a topper using the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up!, the Perfect Punches stamp set and the Decorative Label Punch. Inside I put a large Candy Cane, Pencil, kisses, mini hersheys, and the treat  holders that I shared yesteday.

The kids LOVED them!  I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of the Teachers Gift I made.  I was going crazy looking for it and then realized I never took a photo.  Guess I'll have to re-create that one huh?  Sounds like a plan!  Thank you for stopping by and check back tomorrow for yet another project.

Happy Stampin,
