Best Day Ever Tote

I made this tote out of the Best Year Ever DSP and the Deco Labels Collection Framelits. The deco label is a fun way to create a handle for the tote.

A Spiral Flower Jar For You

Mason jars are great for gift giving. I simply created a tag with the tag talk stamp set and then created a sweet flower with the spiral flower die to place next to it. I love how it turned out!

Enjoy A Gift Bag

The gift bag punch board was a bit confusing to begin with, but once I figured it out I made this cute little gift bag. I think the sequin trim gives it a little glam. :)

A Little Something Birthday Box

I cut a few side pieces off the lid on my hamburger box to create a holder for a body butter. It sits nicely inside a cupcake wrapper, inside the box. I also used the balloon framelits, bow builder punch,  itty bitty banners stamps, banner framelits and num-num stamp set.

Let's Celebrate Card

After cutting the "hello" thinlit out of foil paper, for my last project, small pieces from the inside of the letters remained. They looked like candle flames to me, so I used washi tape and the foil pieces to make candles for this 4 x 4 card.  You just never know where your inspiration will come from.  ;)

Hello Pillow Box

Don't you love the hello you thinlits?! They make every card or project look great. I used the gold foil sheets with the "hello" Thinlit. Love, love, love the foil sheets!

A Painted Thank You Keepsake

The Painted Petals stamp set is easy to use and the stamped image looks amazing.  It's quickly becoming one of my all time favorite stamp sets! :)

More butterflies, this time with chocolate!

Sending Wishes Card

The Butterfly Basics and Painted Petals stamps work so well together. I used both to make this card along with the Elegant Butterly and Bitty Butterfly punches, which work well together too.

Butterfly Basket

Yay, I finally received the butterfly thinlits and butterfly basic stamps, and I can't stop using them! Be prepared to see more of my projects with butterflies on them :) I started with the berry basket. I added small handles to it and filled it with Ghiradelli chocolate.

Baby Boy Gift Bag

I don't do much for babies, especially baby boys, so I thought I'd give it a try. I think it turned out pretty darn cute, don't you? I used the something for baby stamps, hello life stamps and baby's first framelits. I just love the little tie! I have a couple more projects using the baby sets, I'll be showing soon.

Banner Treat Box

I'm having so much fun with these tiny treat boxes!  They are so easy to embellish and can be filled with so many great things. For this box I created a banner with the banner blast stamp set and banner punch. It's so cute!:)

Thanks Nugget Box

The die to create this box is from My Creative Time and its called Treat Slider Box Die.  I love all the scallops!  It even includes a die for the sweet covers you wrap around the Hershey Nuggets. I'm a big fan of die cuts, which you've probably figured out. :)  This is definitely a fun one!

Birthday Greeting Pocket

Did you notice the Gratitude For Days Simply Created Kit, on the Stampin' Up! clearance rack?  I glanced past it a couple of times until I really took notice of the colors.  So glad I decided to purchase it!  There is so much in this kit for the price and it doesn't need to be used for it's suggested intention. Mine is for a birthday gift. I'm going to fill it with cash and give it to my daughter for her birthday.  She'll love it! :)

Happy Treat

I wasn't sure I wanted the Hello You Thinlits dies and Crazy About You stamps, but now that I have them I love them. They turned this simple candy bar into a sweet little birthday treat.

Curvy Keepsake Duck

Isn't this the cutest?! It's made using the Curvy Keepsake Box and its holding two Ghiradelli mini chocolates. I wish I could take the credit for coming up with the idea, but I can't. You can find the instructions on alexscreativecorner.blogspot.com. Her idea is so clever and I appreciate her sharing it with us.

Peeps Peat Pot

Peeps are not my favorite, but I've seen some cute Easter ideas made with them. I like the way they look in my peat pot :) Happy Easter!

Bunny Easter Cup

I wrapped a plastic condiment cup in a grass border, made out of green card stock, using fringe scissors. The handpicked framelits dies created the perfect size sign to place next to the tiny Lindt Gold Bunny.

Carrot Box

Here's another fun box I found on Connie's website, simplysimplestamping.com. It's suppose to hold seven Hershey nuggets, but I put carrot shaped chocolates in mine for an Easter gift. Thanks again Connie!

Love Mini Treat Bag

Stampin' Up! has this wrapping paper called, Festive Designer Kraft Paper Rolls, on their clearance rack. I love wrapping paper and especially this kind, because look how cute it looks as a mini treat bag. Yep, I used it to create this adorable treat bag with the Mini Treat Bag thinlits, Hello Life stamp set, Bow Builder punch and Chalk Talk framelits.

March 17 Coins

I like making St Patrick's day projects, but the candy options are limited. These chocolate coins seem to be everywhere, so I decorated the tops of the coins and added them to my green box.
