Holiday Gifts in a Jar share

Hi Stampers and Happy Friday! I wanted to share a few quick projects with you. This was suppose to post last weekend and  I never scheduled it to go out!  My mistake! But here it goes! I have been wanting to do these for some time now and finally got around to it. I  made samples for an “Udderly Awesome” Meeting in Duarte, Ca. that I LOVE going to.  These below are for Fall – I’ll share the Christmas ones I did tomorrow morning with all the links to the recipes so you can make some yourself!

Fall Gift JarsHow fun are these!  Besides the jars everything used here is from Stampin' Up!

I will share the mix for the jars and the Cookie Recipe for this one too! It is really YUMMY and was shared with us from Stampin' Up!

These were so fun to make and easy too! Don't know why I waited so long to try them and what a great gift!

Have an Awesome day and thank you for stopping by!

Happy Stampin',

Just a few more Thanksgiving shares

Good evening all!  What a day today!  I had to get a few things for tomorrow. Oh Boy, I didn’t think I was going to get out of the store alive! LOL!  Actual I think I went right before the craziness was going to begin. I had my son with me so I was glad it didn’t take to long!  Just grab what I needed and RAN! LOL! 

So before I curl up with my yarn and watch some T.V. with the boys I wanted to share these 2 cards that we made at my Fun Folds Class

Every month I have different types of folds, or something interactive! LOVE those kinds!  So we did 2 Wiper cards and 2 Z-Fold Cards.  I’m showing you the Thanksgiving Wiper Cards today and will share the other 2 on Friday.


Thanksgiving Wiper Card

This is it!  Now the inspirations for this card was one that I saw on Stampin Connection, from a Barbara Welch!

LOVED it as soon as I seen it! She had a really nice Brad in the of the 4 squares.




                                                                                                                                  When you pull the sides of the card your greeting pops up on top! It’s like a Wiper effect!

Super fun to make.

Scallop Envelope Purse

Good Morning all!  Ok, so here is another share I have for you! I have been sooo wanting to make these for the longest.  I saw these everywhere last year and am just now getting around to it. Talk about Easy??? Oh, Yes, SUPER easy!  So let me tell you how it was done. If you'd like a photo tutorial comment me.

Thanksgiving Scallop Envelope Box Supplies used are all Stampin' Up!

Stamp Set(s): Day of Gratitude #120835, Teeny Tiny Wishes #115370
Cardstock: Whisper White, Specialty DSP Autumn Spice (this is YUMMY paper)
Ink:  Old Olive, Basic Black
Accessories:  Old Olive Ribbon 5/8, Dazzling Diamond Glitter, Dimensionals, Word Window Punch, Modern Label punch, Sticky Strip, Big Shot, SU! Bigz Scallop  Envelope # 113462

Basically all you do is cut out 2 of the Envelopes, Trim the bottom about a 1/2 inch or close to that. Then place both bottom pieces together using Sticky Strip and Ta Da, you got yourself a very cute little holder.  Which I do have to say holds 2 Ghiradelli Chocolates nicely inside!   If you still need the visual please don't hesitate to ask. I totally understand!  Also, I will have another post a little later!  Thanks for stopping by!

Sour cream containers bulk Happy Friday everybody!  Is it just me or did this week just fly by?  Well it sure seemed to for me, but then again I was super busy.  I wasn't feeling to well yesterday but I mentioned I was making little treat  holders for my son's class.  Well I did get them done and wanted to share those today. 

Now this project is an oldie but a goodie! Love the sourcream containers.  They are super easy to make!  If you haven't tried them you should.  Below is a quick tutorial on how to make them.  Would LOVE to see what you make.  Comment me with the link!

Mr Acorn box Also I made his Teacher a cute little box with "Mr. Acorn".  Is he not the cutest? 

I got this idea from a fellow Demonstrator Doris Denman.  Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator we have access to a site called "Stampin' Connection" and that's where I saw it!  She's has other amazing projects that I'll just have to share a little later! ; )

His face is the Ornament Punch! How clever is that???  I will share more of Mr. Acorn a little later.

Now on to the Picture Tutorial for the Sourcream Container!

Stamp set: Day of Gratitude, Teeny Tiny Wishes.
Ink used was:
Early Espresso, Old Olive, More Mustard, Crajun Craze, Chocolate Chip & Basic Black

Sour Cream Step 1

Step 1

I randomly stamped a full sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Leaf, the acorn and Happy Thanksgiving using the colors mentioned above.

Step 2

Cut into 4 even pieces 4 1/4 then in half at 5 1/2 you'll have 4 pieces measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Sour cream Step 2

Step 3

Next you'll put your adhevsive as shown.

Sour cream Step 3

Step 4

You'll want to take off the sticky strip from the 4 1/4 inch side and roll like toilet paper and you'll end up with what should look like a toilet paper roll.


Sour cream Step 4
Step 5

 They you'll take the sticky strip off of one side and squeeze together like shown.





Sour cream Step 5

Step 6

Put that end into the crimper and turn about 3 times.  This will hold the sticky strip real good in place.

Before you pull off the next side of sticky strip put your goodies inside. I used Hershey's Kisses 3-4 will fit good inside.

Sour cream Step 6

Step 7

Squeeze again put the opposite way. Look at the bottom of the photo.

Then run through the crimper again and you are done.  Now you can add a tag to these too! How cute would that be.  I just ran out of time.

Sour Cream projects
This will be  your finished project!  Now was that easy or what?

As always thanks for stopping by and tomorrow I'll share the party favors I made for my Son's end of the season baseball party.  TOO fun!

Have a great weekend and Happy Stampin',
