More Cookie Cutters

This morning I have a few more projects using the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle. These were brought for display at our team meeting a couple of weeks back.

These first 2 were made by Sue-Ella Hardy. cookie-cutter8A cute little box…
cookie-cutter-9But look what’s inside!
cookie-cutter-10These adorable Santa earrings were made with Shrinky Dink, a StazOn ink pad, and markers. The instructions on the package say to heat in the oven, but did you know that an Embossing Heat Tool works as well? It makes you want to run out and buy some Shrinky Dink right now, right?!  Can you image gingerbread men earrings? These would make such cute stocking stuffers!

And then Alana Jean-Louis made these treat bags…
cookie-cutter-7I can think of a few nieces and nephews who would LOVE these. Can you spot Rudolph’s red nose in that bag? Clever idea.

If you are looking for some other inexpensive stocking stuffer and gift ideas, I still have a few spots left in my Creative Christmas Class this Friday, October 21st. Email me to save your spot at

Love is in the Air

I cannot believe it is February already! Love is in the air. Men are starting to sweat as they try to think of that perfect date…and women are dreaming of romance and chocolate. Right?!

CRAFTY women are thinking one step further though about cute packaging for those treats for family members or co-workers. I’m here to tell you that the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits are always the perfect solution…anytime, anywhere, any occasion. And you’re in luck. They are part of the Weekly Deals this week!!

So I thought I’d give you a little inspiration. I created a few treat bags this morning using product from the Love Blossoms suite. Take a look.
Love-Blossoms-1The treat bags were cut out of the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack and then embellished using primarily the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit.
Love-Blossoms-2Love-Blossoms-3For this one, I flipped the gold foil heart over and sponged the reverse side with crumb cake ink to give it a softer look.

I LOVE the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit. It includes pearl trim, satin ribbon, paper clips with pre-tied bows, sequins, wood veneer pieces, enamel glitter dots, and foil heart doilies.

I hope you are inspired now to purchase these this Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. You’ll be happy you did.

 The other thing that makes this girl happy is COFFEE. I have a few friends who happen to share this love of mine…so I packaged up these cute mugs to thank them for helping out with our team birthday event on the weekend. How cute are these?
Gift-1I found these plastic tubes at a craft store in the states this past summer, and mini oreo cookies fit perfectly inside. To dress up the tea lights, I just wrapped washi tape around them. Love how easy washi tape is! Gift-2Happy Heart Month everyone!
