Treat Box

By | 3-D Items | One Comment

Back in early January I attended the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference in Palm Springs, CA with some of my fellow demonstrators.  My upline, Kristen Bryant always gives us gifts when we attend major SU! events, and this was no exception.  When we met at the airport, she had these cute treat boxes for us filled with goodies! One of my favorite customers (oh, am I not supposed to have favorites?) saw it on display at the Birthday Bash and asked how to make it.  Since her friend (another favorite ) was having a workshop the next weekend, I said I…

Cookie Dough Truffles

By | Gift Ideas | No Comments

For the Love of Chocolate!

By | Cards | No Comments

Here are the three cards that we made at my February stamp class last week.  You’ll want to check back tomorrow for the recipe for the Cookie Dough Truffles that I served.  The class was titled “For the Love of Chocolate” after all! The base card for the “from the heart” card is Purely Pomegranate, but we used the Rose Red marker to color in the flowers.  It’s nearly a perfect match!  I also love the different use for the punch-outs from the Word Window punch.  The heart stamp is from the Simply Said stamp set.   The colors on…

Happy Birthday!

By | Cards, Home Decor | One Comment

Happy Birthday to my mother-in-law Dolores Taylor today!  Some of the family showed up for Saturday dinner at her place as a surprise and we had a fabulous time.  Most were smart enough to head home on Saturday night, but as a little bonus surprise our overnight visit turned into a weekend stay.  We got snowed/iced in and just made it home this morning.  The girls had a great time and I had a chance to organize her stamping supplies. Dolores loves lilacs, so I made this little gift ensemble for her using the Blossoms Abound stamp set. This is…
