Matchbook Candy Treat

At the gender reveal party I wanted to come up with another “take away” for people that didn’t want the popcorn.  I came up with this matchbook candy treat.


How cute are they??!!!

Until next time…have fun creating!


Ready To Pop

Last weekend we had a gender reveal party for my daughter and her boyfriend.  Since no one knew (not even me) what the gender was I decided to make some pink and blue popcorn boxes.

I used the Popcorn Box Thinlits Dies and the Ready To Pop Stamp Set.  You can get the dies and the stamp set in a bundle here.


I think they turned out super cute and to top it off my daughter loved them.

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Stylized Birthday

This past weekend was my husband’s birthday.  We got him some hockey tickets which he loved.  I couldn’t just hand over the generic envelope with the team logo on it.  I had to make a super cute and simple envelope using the envelope punch board.  The stamp comes from Stampin’ Up and is called Stylized Birthday.


I think it turned out really cute.

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Happy Thanksgiving!!

We just finished our Thanksgiving weekend.  I am stuffed.  This weekend I not only had Thanksgiving but we also had a birthday in our house and we did a gender reveal party for my daughter.  We also had a birthday on the Thursday.  Can you say busy!!!

I did manage to do a fair bit of crafting though.  Here is what I made for the Thanksgiving dinner guests….


I used the gable box die from Lawn Fawn, a stamp set from My Creative Time and the Decorative Label Punch from Stampin’ Up.

I think they turned out super cute!

Until next time…have fun creating!!


For You

I have had a kit from Stampin’ Up called the Perfectly Wrapped Project Kit for some time now.  You can find it here.

I decided to make the smaller box, add some treats and take it to a girls night dinner.

I was impressed with how they turned out.


See….pretty cute.

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Father’s Day Card 2016

I thought I would share the card I made for my husband for Father’s Day.


The card is made with cardstock and Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up.

The die set is My Creative Time’s Stitched Apron Dies.

The stamp set is Jaded Blossom’s King of the BBQ.

Until next time…have fun creating!!


Matchbook Mints

Kay Flipps recently sent me a message asking me for instructions to my Matchbook Mints I recently posted.  I thought I would try to do some sort of tutorial for her.  Here goes nothing…


Card stock measures 2″ x 5 5/8″.  Score on the long side at 1/2″, 3″, 3 1/4″.


Fold on the score lines.  In the picture below, I have stapled the “short” end.  You can easily add adhesive to your treat and attach it inside then fold the card stock over and tuck it into the end.


Or you can tuck in your treat before you staple the bottom.  This would also secure the treat inside.


All that is left to do is embellish the front cover.  Here are some ideas I came up with…
