Cupcake Party – French Fry Treat Bag

At my Try the New Tools Night, my stampers got to try out the new French Fry die cut.  So sweet – and it only uses half a piece of card stock!

We used one of the phrases from Cupcake Party and the color combination is Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey.  It matched my Mini Ghirardelli candies perfectly!

The bag to hold the candies is actually one of our clear envelopes!  We just cut off the sticky seal part!

Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape-Large Paper Clips

This was another item my stampers made at last week’s Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape Stamp Camp.  Another item in my stash (I know, I know) I found that was perfect after perusing the Pinterest posts was large paper clips.

Here is the one I designed:

Washi Tape Ideas-Large Clip Skeleton

 

The directions are pretty easy.  Here are the materials you will need:

  • Whisper White CS
  • Washi Tape
  • Large Paper Clip
  • Sticky Strip
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Punches/Accents for Middle Accent
  • SU Grid Paper

Here are the instructions:

Cut the card stock just a little shy of the width of the washi tape.  For this size of clip, the length was 8-1/2″ long by 3/4″ wide.

Lay the card stock strip on the grid paper (helps with eyeing the matchup).  Carefully apply washi tape to one side of the card stock (washi tape will not release easily on this little piece), turn over and apply washi tape to the other side of the card stock – make sure it is smoothly put down on the card stock.  You don’t want to see the Whisper White CS – this CS is just to make the washi pieces sturdy.

Cut strip into 2 pieces – one about 3-1/2″; one about 5″.  Curl the 5″ piece with a pencil or your fingers and set aside.  Make pennant on 3-1/2″ piece by cutting in center and then cutting off triangles.  Apply a 2″ section of Sticky Strip to the pennant piece – keep red tape on for a bit yet.

Take the larger piece and make a large loop – trim if too big before releasing the red tape.  Once happy with the size of your loop, take off the red tape and butt the ends of the loop at the middle, pressing it into the Sticky Strip.

Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on either side of the large paper clip.  Release the paper pieces from the Stampin’ Dimensionals and press to either side of the loop.  Then take washi tape and gather the loop in center and adhere to the back of the pennant piece.

Add accents, punches, etc. to dress up the clip.

Enjoy!

Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape-Skeleton Domino

This week I held my Wickedly Wild About Washi Tape Stamp Camp.  OMG.  I just love this stuff.  It is so versatile and forgiving.  Here is one of my favorite items we made this week:

Washi Tape Ideas-Toil Domino

It’s just a domino covered in our Witches’ Brew Washi Tape!  I stamped on top of it with the skeleton from Toil & Trouble in Staz On ink.  All you need to do is attach a pinback or a magnet – what a darling little item to share!

Modern Mosaic Embossed Clear Box Gift Holder

At my hostess appreciation event this spring, my wonderful hostesses made this sweet make and take. 

2013 Hostess App Chalk Talk Embossed Box

 

First we used the Mosaic Madness embossing folder to emboss the clear box.  It is so striking in real life.  Inside the box was a heart-shaped chocolate-covered cookie. We added little pink shreds and tied it with Primrose Petals ribbon. We attached the tag with Baker's Twine. The phrase is from Chalk Talk, one of the new stamp sets in the catalog, and it is mounted on the new Artisan Label punch.

The ladies loved the make and take.  They can reuse the box after eating the yummy cookie!

2013 Stampin’ Up! Hostess Appreciation Party

Yesterday I hosted my 2013 Stampin' Up! Hostess Appreciation Party.  It was a wonderful afternoon filled with yummy food, the BRAND-NEW 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! catalog, a sweet project (I'll share this later), and gifts for my fabulous hostesses.  Today, I am sharing one of the gifts on my blog –

Petite Purse Die

At my Die Cut Diva Night, we made some cute purses with the Petite Purse Die.  Here are some examples I showed my customers:

 

Big Shot Petite Purse Die

 

I love the green one – it reminds me of a purse my Great Aunt used to have.  What I love about this die is it only uses a half sheet of card stock – and you can even use our gorgeous DSP!
