Gift Idea – Coaco Pouch

Christmas gift Ideas stampin Up Coaco Pouch with Scentsational Season stamp set

FINALLY FOLKS. . .  OMG I'm a little overwhelmed.  I have finally got my new computer and printer up and running, but I must admit that change is very frustrating.  Of course when you purchase a new computer you have to start from scratch and reload some of your programs.  I guess I'm showing my age here, I just want to be able to sit down and have everything work like I'm used to.  LOL

I'll keep this post short.  I would like to share one of my craft projects with you.  I have one last craft show on Dec 8th at St.Charles West High School.  Now that I think about it I might have already showed these to you,  If I have I hope you will enjoy seeing them once more.  Here's the scoop on the pouch. 

I used Early Expresos as my base.  The plastic bags were purchased at a big box store in the jewlery department.  Inside I have a Swiss Miss Coaco packet, some mini marshmellos, a Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark chocolate (Yummy!!!!!!) and a pepperminit candy cane.  My stamp set is Scentsational Season (121026/121190) from the Holiday Mini.   This is so easy because it has matching Framelits.  I love that!!!!  As a savings Stampin' Up is offering this as a Bundle.  You save 15% when you purchase them as a bundle.  You can't beat that.  My designer paper is from Be Of Good Cheer (126896).  And for a little pizzazz I used one of our Rhinestones (119246) for a little twinkle. 

I'm going to sign off now, thanks for stopping by and for your patience.  I hope to have all this new stuff mastered real soon.

I love being your demonstrator so if you are in need of some great Christmas gifts or just need some supplies to finish up those Holiday Gifts please CLICK HERE  to shop in my ONLINE STORE.  It's open 24/7 for your shopping convenience.  Take care folks and I'll try and post again soon.

Cello Bag Punched Art Snowman

                Snowman Treat Bag with hershey Nuggets  Holiday Mini

Hello Folks. .   Happy Monday.  Here is another craft fair item that I
would like to share with you.  I found this on the internet and thought
is was so so cute. 

It's a candy treat bag made with a punch art snowman.  I used a small
cello bag and filled it with four Hershey's Nuggets.  I cut a 1 x 3" strip
of designer paper and wrapped the nuggets.  Next I took a piece of
white cardstock and cut it with our Top Note Die Cut.  Embossed it
with our Northern Flurry Embossing Folder, scored it down the middle
on the short side. 

My snownman is made with several of our punches.  First the hat
is done with the 1 1/4" square punch, the window punch and the small
corner rounder punch.  The face is from the large oval punch.  The face
is hand drawn.  The little cute hearts come from our Owl Builder Punch.
I didn't have the Red Glitter Paper so I used our Dazzling Diamond
Glitter Glue.  The carrot was cut from a scrap of Pumpkin Pie and the
hands were punched from out 1/2" circle punch.  I used our Decorative
Label Punch for the Cherry Cobbler shelf and stamped with the Merry
Christmas sentiment from Petite Pairs with siliver embossing powder.

Sparklely Frosty and Friends

Stampin Up Christmas Card with Frosty Friends  Stampin Up Holiday Mini

Hello Friends. . .  I have been working feverishly on some of my
craft fair favors, the deadline is fastly approaching.  It's not panic|
time yet but soon.  I will be sharing these with you during my
next few posts.  In my last post I gave you a sneek peek of my
Christmas Card.  It's one of our single stamps called Frosty Friends
  You can find it in the Holiday Mini on pg 9. 

My layout is a pretty simple one.  My cardbase is Whisper White
and I also used a matt of Whisper White for that tone on tone
look.  I used our Northern Flurry Embossing Folder #120902 for
some added texture and depth.  Always an important design

Next I used one of our Labels Collection Framelits #125598.  I
believe it was the fourth one counting from the inside out.  I used
my stipple brush to put a little blue sky in the backround.  Use
any color of blue you like, I used Bashful Blue.  I stamped my
image with Black Stazon Ink #101406

I used SU markers to color in my image and a Blender Pen with
refill inks to give my little snowmen some shadows.  I hope you can
see that in the photo.  Added a pearl for the snowman hat and some
flitter for the snowballs. 

To make them look like they are not suspended in air, I cut a
piece of designer paper with my framelet and added it to the bottom
of my snownmen.  Then I attached a 1/4 Whisper White Grosgrain
Ribbon.  My tag comes from the die cut Lots of Tags #114508 and
I stamped my sentiment from Teen Tiny Wishes #115370/127802.
I wanted just a tad more sparkle so I found a non SU die cut of
small snowflakes and added a silver brad sticker.  Also added a
few pearls on my embossed snowflake layer.

Well that's it more me today.  I hope I inspired you to get started
on your Christmas Cards.  Believe it or not it is just right around
the corner.  If you need some supplies please take a moment
to shop in my Stampin' Up ONLINE STORE 24/7
Thanks for
stopping by and Happy Stampin'.  Toodles

Post-It Note Holder with Perfectly Preserved

        Stampin Up Bundles Perfectly Perserved Bundle Holiday Mini

Hello Stampers.  Well, the day has finally arrived.  Today is our
Christmas Stamp a Stack.  I have eight guests coming and I guess
I'm as ready as I'm going to be.

I have another craft fair item to share with you.  I was inspired by
Holly from Rubber Redneck.  It's a post-it note holder.  I changed
mine up a little to make it my own.

I cute a piece of Early Expresso 3 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored it at five (5)
then turned it and scored it at 1 3/4".  I cut another piece of EE
at 3 1/2" square for my base.  Layered it with some Cherry Cobbler
and So Saffron.  I put a little texture to them using the
and Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folders (123134/117335).

I just received some new rubber and die cuts.  It's one of our
new BUNDLES called Perfectly Preserved (129944).  You save
15% when you purchase one of these bundles, there are several in
this years Holiday Mini
Click here for more info.

My designer paper can also be found in the Holiday Mini called
Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper (126895).  It has all the
pretty fall 
colors and goes great with the Perfectly Preserved stamp
These make great little gifts, especially since Christmas is just
around the corner.  Great teacher gifts, secret santas and stocking
stuffers.  If you would like to order some of the supplies that I used
 to place your order ON LINE 24/7 or email me
and I will place it for you.  It will ship directly to you.

Sassy Salutations and a MOJO Sketch


          SUO Stampin Up Sassy Salutations Holiday Mini $99 Starter Kit

Hello folks. . .  Happy Monday to ya.  Today I have last weeks MOJO
Sketch to share with you.  I think it turned out pretty grand.

It a 5 x 5 square card.  I love this color combo.  The base is Crumb
Cake, matted with a piece of Very Vanilla and matted again
with designer paper Candlelight Christmas Speciality Designer
Series (126901) from the Holiday Mini.  According to the sketch I
needed a lacy edge so I pulled out one of our retired lacy border
punches.  Next is a 4" paper doily, topped with a 2 1/4" scallop square.
I used my nesties but SU have a Scallop Square Duo Bigz Die (120903)
that would work just fine.  It is mounted with a piece of Early Expresso,
topped with a 2" Cherry Cobbler Circle and a 1 3/4" Circle.  My
Stamp Set is Sassy Salutations (126705/126707).  It's a fun new
word set with a great looking font.  For some added pizzazz the
sketch calls for a pretty flower at the bottom, so I pulled out my
Betsy's Blossoms (126004/126006) flower image and used our Bird
Builder Punch (117191) for the leaves.  Added some pretty satin
ribbon and viola' you have a very pretty card.  Oh, I did add some
pretty pearls (119247) to the top of my border. 

          SUO Sassy Salutations Birthday Holiday Mini $99 Starter Kit

On the inside I used the flowers from Besty's Blossoms and added
my birthday sentiment also from Sassy Salutations.  For an extra
pretty touch I included a stamped envelope.  I'm going to add this
to my stash for the craft fair.

I hope this inspires you to make a card of your own and if you are
in need of Stampin' Up supplies please shop in my ON LINE STORE
