Bird Tote For You

I made this little tote with the Stampin' Up! Fry Box Bigz. You need two fry boxes because you remove the front part of each box and glue together the back pieces. The handle is made with the large oval punch.

Stars & Stripes Matchbox

Here's another little treat for the holiday. A matchbox with a clear cover and Hershey Nuggets wrapped in stars and stripes paper. The "enjoy" is from the mini treat bag thinlits.

Happy 4th Baker's Box

I'm lovin' the Bakers Box Thinlits! The box holds lots of treats and its fun to come up with different ways to decorate it. I used the Stars Framelits to create a small window, so you can see the red, white and blue treat inside.

Mini Uncle Sam Hat

This Uncle Sam hat is a mini coffee cup placed on a 2 3/4" red circle.  Stars and stripes glued around the cup, and a treat inside, make it perfect for the 4th of July.

Butterfly Kisses

It's been a while since I did anything with butterflies, so I thought I'd share this treat with  butterflies and chocolate.

Thank You Candy

I dressed up a candy bar with some of the extra pieces I had on my workspace. Sometimes (actually most of the time) my workspace has a few too many extra pieces, however this time I'm glad I had them :)

Gum Cover

I stamped a cover for a package of gum with the Butterfly Basics stamp set. Then I used From The Garden and Handpicked Framelits, for a tag. The new watermelon wonder dotted lace ribbon gave it a pop of color.

Floral Birthday Treat Bag

You can't go wrong with the mini treat bag thinlit. There are so many great paper choices to create the bag.  A couple tags and ribbon make it perfect gift packaging.

Sweet Treat Cookie Jar

The You're So Sweet stamp set is the cutest! And one of the stamps from the Work of Art stamp set made a great background to go with it. It helped add just the right amount of color.

Painted Petals Tag Topper Card

Another card made with the painted petals stamp set. I found the instructions for this card, which uses the scalloped tag topper punch, on snippetsandpretties.blogspot.com. She has great instructions with pictures, so it's easy to follow.

Painted Petals Birthday Card

I'm so glad I got the painted petals stamp set before it retired. I wish  they would've kept it. I enjoyed seeing all the different projects everyone made with the set.

Coffee Bag

Even though I don't drink coffee, I'm sad to see the Perfect Blend stamp set retire. It's cute and easy to use. For this project I cut a small piece off the front of a mini treat bag so I could place two individual packets of coffee inside. The coffe cup on the front is made with the curvy keepsake die. Now I have a cute little gift for someone who does drink coffee. :)

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! :)

Celebration Cupcake

I used the balloon framelits and celebrate today stamp set to create this fun pick for my cupcake. It's so cute, makes a big statement and was easy to make!

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.
