A Tag or Not

I love the Fancy Tag thin cuts…I not only use them for stand alone tags, but I add them to card fronts and yesterday I decided to make them into some Valentines!     img_2910

These tag treat holders were not only fun to make they were so easy too.  I measured my treat and then doubled and added about a half inch to my length of cardstock.  I then folded it with a pleated bottom and then positioned my die cut so that the bottom would not cut.  I decorated it with a cute Valentine stamp that was in my stash from last year and they are already to go in the mail to a sweet niece & nephew!

You can find the Fancy Tags Thin Cuts on my webpage by clicking here.  I’m sure you won’t be sorry if you add them to your shopping cart.

Ice Cream Treat

If you’ve been following me for anytime you know that I love cards with movement and making them just got so much easier.

I saw a die from Lawn Fawn which makes Magic Slider cards. It’s now happily at home in the Craft Coop.

I grabbed a fun ice-cream themed stamp set from a few years ago and went to work making my card. The big surprise is a gift card attached to the back side of the slider.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit…I hope you can leave a comment with your favorite flavor of ice cream!

Pop In

I thought I’d pop in on a Friday morning with a fun gift box idea.  I needed a fun way to display a movie gift card and saw a cute idea on Pinterest, so I grabbed my Artiste cartridge and started cutting away.

I used paper straws to hold up my gift card and shapes.  I think I’ll be using this idea in card form too so stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by on a Friday…enjoy your weekend.

Treats of Friendship – AHSC  #100 

What a week!!  I was worried that I wasn’t going to find time to get into the craft room and work on my card for the 100th sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, but building a window box with granddad became a priority so I snuck into the craft room this afternoon and “built” a card based on this sketch!

I have just been dying to play with new things so today’s card is a sneak peak into Seasonal Expressions 2.  The Treats of Friendship stamp was one of my favorite stamp sets.  I love the “punny” sayings.  The paper is from the Seaside paper packet.  I love the colors and tried to color my donuts similarly with the Shin Han markers.

Of course no card is complete without a little treat on the inside.

I made this card for my favorite barista…I’ve been dying to introduce her to Close To My Heart and “I donut what I’d do without her”.

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Sweet Treats With Love

There’s nothing better than finding the inspiration (Pinspiration) to make little goodie bags!

Our sweet granddaughter is having her 4th birthday party at the farm and I needed a treat bag for all ages! I thought these sweet bags filled with Salt Water Taffy and topped with Dream Pop papers would be a hit — no melting chocolate and no dollars store gizmos to break!
