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.

Another one of Connie's tutorials. I made mine for Easter, with chocolate eggs.

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.

Peanut Butter Cups For You

This fun box holds three Hershey peanut butter cups and was simple to make. All the instructions can be found on Connie's website, simplysimplestamping.com. This lady always has the cutest projects to share. She's the best! Thanks Connie!

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.

Happy Tolsby

When I saw this specific stamp in the Hello Life stamp set I had to have it. I love this saying! I purchased this tolsby at IKEA so I could frame it and place it in any room as a reminder to "do more of what makes you happy."

Gift Card Easter Basket

How fun is this?! I used the berry basket die to make an Easter basket gift card holder.

St. Patrick's Box

These 2 X 2 boxes are so fun to decorate.  My green Christmas washi tape was perfect for my St. Patrick's day box. :)

Best Ever Birthday Pouch

This birthday pouch has lots on the outside and a simple chocolate candy bar on the inside. :)

EOS Sucker

I've been wanting to make this project for a long time. It's an EOS lip balm sucker!  You press a thumb tack onto the end of a sucker stick, this gives you a base to glue onto the lip balm. Wouldn't this make a fun addition to a birthday gift or great party favor?

A Hamburger Box For You

I thought I'd try the hamburger box die again. I'm  still not willing  to put it on my favorites list. It's a lot of awkward and confusing folding. I wish someone else would fold it and put it together for me, because once it's folded it's cute. :)

Valentine Basket


I made this treat holder with the new Stampin' Up! berry basket die.  I ran the die through my big shot one time instead of the two it takes to create the full size basket. I measured down one inch from the score line on the bottom of each side and cut, creating two identical pieces.  I glued the top closed before I placed the pink piece around it, then I glued one bottom piece over the other, this way it's sealed on top and bottom, but you have open sides and a one inch bottom for holding a treat. Mine is holding a small Hershey candy bar.

Enjoy Kisses

I can't get enough of the bow bulder punch! It adds the sweetest look to any project.

Heart Pouch

This little treat holder is made with the scallop envelope die, oval punch and bow builder punch. It's the perfect size for a Ghiradelli chocolate square.
