Did you notice the adorable bunny image in the We Must Celebrate Stampin' Up! stamp set? It's on page 39 in the 2018 Occasions Catalog and I think he's pretty cute!! (or here online). I inked only the bunny and colored him with Stampin' Blends to make tags for my Easter Treat cello bags!
I filled 3x6 gusseted cello bags with various Easter Candy, then made tags for them with the bunny stamp. I think they are so cute!
You can make these! All of these Stampin' Up! Supplies are available in my online store.. click any product photo link at the bottom of this post. You'll need to shop for your own candy though.. and warning.. you might need to sample it before filling the bags... just sayin'. Cuz, that's what I did.
On the tag above, I also die cut grass with the Picnic Basket Builder framelits and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, then die cut it with the Layering Ovals framelits. To finish off the tag, I just added a hint of color with the Light and Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends and then added some self-adhesive Tutti-Frutti sequins! I tied up the bag with 3/8" metallic edge Berry Burst ribbon.
For the bunny tag above, I colored him with a touch of Light Crumb Cake and some Ivory Stampin' Blends and just a touch of Dark Pink Pirouette, then die cut him with the scalloped oval /Layering Ovals framelits. The middle layer is Flirty Flamingo, and I had a polkadot oval on my desk from THIS PROJECT, so I just used it as my final layer.
The ribbon is the FREE Sale-a-Bration shimmer ribbon in Calypso Coral (yours free with a $50 order through 3/31/18).
The Cello Bags are 3"x6" with gusseted sides so you can fit quite a bit of candy in them if you want to. They are on page 195 in the current Annual catalog, or HERE online. I'm sure it's not easy to see in the photo but I also filled the bag above with the Sweet Soiree Shreddie.
Thanks for joining me! Are you making Easter Treats this year?
Make a quick and easy Easter Treat Box with the Lots to Love box framelits! They are so EASY to put together! Just 2 die cut pieces and 2 strips of adhesive are all you need! I created this cute Easter / Spring Candy Box treat with the Lots to Love box framelits, Painted with Love designer paper and the cute "A Good Day" stamp set all found in the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog.
Above: the treat box is die cut with the Painted with Love designer paper and it's the perfect weight for these boxes! I put some Berry Burst Shreddie (pg 13 Occasions catalog #145562) into the box along with cute Easter Bunny candy. I used Berry Burst 3/8" metallic edge ribbon to tie around the box! The greeting is from the Badges & Banners set, and punched with the Duet Banner punch.
Below: I love all the fun layering possibilities using the "A Good Day" stamp set (pg 17 in the 2018 Occasions catalog) and the coordinating 1-1/8" and 1-3/8" Scallop circle punches! I love stamping several images, punching them out and layering them, like I did on the bunny stamped scalloped circle below!
I stamped the bunny with Memento black ink on Whisper White cardstock so I could color it with the Calypso Coral and Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends Markers. In addition to the scalloped circle punches, I ended up layering the bunny onto a Berry Burst scalloped circle die cut from the Layering Circle framelits. I added it to the box with Stampin' Dimensionals.
A Good Day stamp set, pg 17 in the 2018 Occasions catalog
After Die cutting the 2 pieces for the box, I die cut an oval in one of the pieces, then cut a piece of Window Sheet to fit behind the oval cut out. This is optional but allows the recipient to see what's in the box! I highly recommend using the Tear & Tape to adhere the 2 halves of the box together! Easy to use and holds great!
Painted with Love Designer paper, pg 19 Occasions catalog, here online.
Did you notice the cute little Easter Grass I added to the box? I used the Picnic Basket framelit set to die cut 2 layers of grass. One is Old Olive Cardstock and the other layer is Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. The Picnic Basket framelits are available on page 6 of the current 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog, or by clicking on any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.
As I was typing this blog post.. I had to go in the kitchen and sneak one of my Easter Eggs from See's Candy. This has been a fave since I was a little girl... I figure about 1 a week for a treat shouldn't be too bad, even though I don't really eat much chocolate.
Watch the Stampin' UP! Video Tutorial below to see how easy it is to put together these boxes from the Lots to Love Framelit die set!

Today the Luv 2 Stamp group of Stampin' UP! demonstrators (my "downline" or team) are gathering to stamp and create projects featuring 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration products!
One of the projects we are creating today is this Silver Mini Gable Box that I designed! The perfect treat box for Valentine's day, or any party or gift-giving occasion!
I love the color combo of black, white, silver and Calypso Coral. I hope you like this too!
DON'T MISS IT: Silver Mini Gable Boxes are on page 13 of the 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog #145568
The beautiful black and white patterned paper is a 2-3/4" x 12" strip of Petal Passion designer paper wrapped around the silver gable box, and then lots of pretty Calypso Coral hearts were added for pops of color! Each stamping day participant could select their choice of paper pattern, and ribbon. The ribbons are both from the Sale-a-Bration 2018 brochure and are available as your free gift with $50 order from Jan. 3 to March 31, 2018. Find them on page 9 in the SAB brochure, #147243.
Don't miss the perfect little treat boxes: Silver Mini Gable boxes NEW from Stampin' UP! on pg 13 of your 2018 Occasions catalog!!
These super cute mini gable boxes can be decorated with any colors, theme or embellishments (and for more than Valentine's day of course!), and filled with candies, treats, small note pad and pen, jewelry, crafting supplies, or of course, my favorite, a little stash of post-it notes :) The "fillable" area measures 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 4".
I have created some sweet little boxes all decorated with the Heart Happiness floral heart (colored with Stampin' Blends markers) and some Petal Passion designer paper wrapped around the box. I cut the Petal Passion paper to 1-3/4" wide x 12" long and it fits perfectly around the box.
For the Real Red heart box above, I also stamped the "Sure do love you" banner with Real Red ink from the "Sure do Love You" stamp set (pg 19 of the Occasions catalog) and die cut it with the banner framelit that is included in the Sure do Love You bundle. Each box also has Silver Foil die cut hearts. All of the hearts are die cut with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits.
ABOVE: I think this box would be GORGEOUS for a wedding favor or bridal shower favor if the brides colors included peach. The box includes a Peekaboo Peach cardstock die cut heart behind the colored floral heart, and Peekaboo Peach crinkled seam binding ribbon.
I colored all of the floral hearts on these boxes with my Stampin' Blends markers after stamping the heart in Memento Black ink onto Thick Whisper White cardstock.
ABOVE: this box was decorated with a more dramatic color scheme of Rich Razzleberry, Fresh Fig, Pink Pirouette and Elegant Eggplant... I combined all 4 of those colors, plus the Old Olive in the leaves for this mini gable box!
BELOW: Real Red is always a great choice for Valentine's treats :)
Thank you for joining me today! Are you making Valentine Treats this year?
Today I am sharing a SNEAK PEEK of the adorable new Mini Silver Gable boxes, decorated and ready for spring! These would make such sweet table favors at a shower or wedding, or a great little birthday gift for some jewelry or a gift card!
I added die cuts behind the die cut flowers using Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the Petals & More thinlit dies. I tied up the handles on the gable box with free Sale a Bration ribbon in Calypso Coral. The box is wrapped in a 1-7/8" x 12" piece of decorative paper from the Sweet Soiree designer paper pack.

These make the perfect neighbor gift, teacher treat, co-worker surprise or stocking stuffer for the holidays! Just fill with your favorite candies!
These treats are self-closing and all you do is pinch the top to open!!
I loved the extra added design element of punching the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, or you can also round the top with a circle punch, circle framelit or paper snips.
I created all of these candy treat holders with the Quilted Christmas 6x6 paper stack designs and decorated them with the Stitched Felt embellishments and Quilted Christmas ribbon, all found on page 5 in the 2017 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog.
The tags are created with the Everyday Label punch (pg 12) and stamps from the Christmas Happiness set (pg 27) and the Labels to Love set (pg 45).
You can create cute colored stars for accents like I used on the tags by coloring the Metallic Enamel Shapes with Stampin' Blends markers or sharpie markers!
You only need a 4"x6" piece of paper, so they work perfectly with the 6x6 Quilted Christmas paper stack! Grab your Simply Scored board and follow the video instructions linked below!

If you joined me here yesterday you saw the results of our girls crafting day "Be Merry rosette ornaments" creations, and today I'm sharing a fun thing you might like to do with them.. put one on a Mini Pizza Box for a great little neighbor gift, teacher appreciation gift, co-worker gift, etc.!
This is one of the 7 projects we created last month at our Luv 2 Stamp Group event. We made the rosette ornaments from the Be Merry kit and hot glued them to a pizza box! It's the perfect little container for some holiday candy, treats or gift card!
We found that a hot glue gun was a great help in securing all these layers together.
In addition to the contents of the Be Merry ornament kit, we added a Foil Snowflake, punched circle from the Quilted Christmas designer paper stack, a stamped greeting from the Christmas Happiness stamp set, tag border from the Labels to Love set, and the Everyday Label punch. We also added an adorable stitched felt red star from the Stitched Felt Embellishments package, topped off with the Quilted Christmas 1/4" ribbon bow.
Final touches of gold: Faceted Gold Gems and Gold Metallic enamel shaped stars.

We're so excited because my sister-in-law invited us to her home for Thanksgiving again this year.. we love and appreciate her hospitality! I think this will make a sweet hostess gift to take to her!! I used the Stampin' UP! Painted Harvest stamp set to stamp the sunflower image, leaves and thankful greeting, and the Gourd Goodness stamp set to stamp the pumpkins.
This jar is actually a candle holder jar from Michaels (see THIS post), but I took the candle holder part out, and filled the jar with candy, and then covered the hole in the lid with the stamped sunflower on the punched out circle!
To take out the candle holder portion, I just wiggled the piece back and forth and it eventually broke the weld. Easy.
I tied it up with the 3/8" Crushed Curry Mini Chevron ribbon.
The pumpkins are stamped with Peekaboo peach and Pumpkin Pie ink. I love the photo-realistic images in this Gourd Goodness set. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to add them to a die cut Stitched Shape Whisper White oval piece. I stamped the greeting from Painted Harvest in Cajun Craze ink.
The leaves are stamped and punched using the stamps in the Painted Harvest bundle - SAVE 10% when you buy the bundle including the stamp set and leaf punch! See the bottom of this post for all shopping info!
Thank you for reading my blog post today! I hope this project inspired you!
You can make one, too! You'll find all of these Stampin' Up! supplies in my online Stampin' Up! store by clicking any of the product photos below:
This adorable little candle holder was one of the 7 projects we created at our Luv 2 Stamp Group team event last weekend. Everyone really seemed to enjoy creating them with Stampin' Up! supplies!! I hope you enjoy the idea too - great for a neighbor gift, teacher gift, co-worker or for your own home!
I found these cute jar / candle holders at Michael's (actually had to go to 2 stores to get 35 of them for our event), and we did a super simple decoration with the Jute Twine, a stamped/layered tag, the Holly/Berry felt embellishment and come colored White Perfect accents!
As I mentioned above, I found these cute little candle holder jars at Michaels. They have them in all different colors ... colored glass, colored lids... they are pretty cute!
Be sure to download your tip sheet above for all the supplies and tips to make one!
The stamped tag is from the Labels to Love stamp set, stamped in Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist. It's punched out with the Everyday Label punch, and layered onto a Real Red Stitched Shape Oval, and onto a Lemon Lime Twist scalloped oval (from the Layering Ovals framelit set). These supplies are found in the Annual 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, and in the 2017 Holiday catalog, and also linked in my online store at the bottom of this post for your shopping convenience.
Available November 1st!! Whohooo!!! Stampin' Blends Markers!! They are not just for blending when coloring.. look how pretty they are when you color on the White Perfect Accents!!!
Cut a Stampin' UP! Acetate box in 1/2, then decorate it and fill with Ghirardelli candy or other favorite holiday treats!
Thanks to demonstrator Jill Olsen for this fun idea, you can get more for your money when cut the boxes in 1/2!! Just think, 20 treat boxes for only $6.50!! whohooo!! Click here to order your Acetate boxes!
You'll find these GREAT Acetate boxes on pg 13 in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.
See THIS POST for my other Ghirardelli Square candy idea using the whole Acetate Box and 6 Ghirardelli chocolate treats.
This was one of the 7 Holiday catalog projects the Luv 2 Stamp Group created last Saturday at our stamping day event. We used the Year of Cheer Holiday catalog paper to wrap around the Ghirardelli chocolate squares, and also to decorate the 1/2 boxes. Each box is finished off with a gold or silver Foil Snowflake, and a stamped sentiment from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock, and punched with the Starburst Punch. (all of these products are shown at the bottom of this blog post - just click any product photo to shop in my online Stampin' Up! store).
The finishing touch on each package is the lovely metallic enamel shapes!
Make these Holiday Treats! You'll find all of these Stampin' Up! supplies in my online Stampin' Up! store by clicking any of the product photos below:
Gift Cards... it seems we all give them either at the holidays or during the year for birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, Christmas, etc., but it's fun to make them a little more personal and fancy than just handing them to the recipient in an envelope.
Today I have a gift card holder idea for you that is basically a side fold card with a little pocket inside and since this one features the Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe bundle, it's the perfect holder for a Starbucks gift card.
Even though it's difficult to see in the photo, the lid is glossy white cardstock and it looks super cute in person!
If you'd like to make this fun project, be sure to download your project tip sheet and supply list below!
Tip.. use Tear & Tape or strong adhesive at the bottom and 2 sides of the small piece of Year of Cheer paper inside the card for the gift card pocket to ensure that it holds.
The card base is Thick Whisper White cardstock and the front snowflake design is found in the Year of Cheer designer paper pack. The coffee cup is die cut from the Quilted Christmas designer paper pack. The small hearts are die cut from the Support Ribbon framelits - sorry I left those off the supply list below.
Happiness... is stamped in Emerald Envy ink (to match the Emerald Envy ribbon) and it's found in the Coffee Cafe stamp set.
I loved the shimmery foil pattern in the Year of Cheer paper so I carried that through the theme of the card with the Champagne foil cup "wrapper" and the Foil snowflake!
Join my Team! This was one of the 7 projects we created on Saturday at our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting! Here are 4 lovely ladies creating this gift card holder project. If you'd like to join my team, READ MORE HERE and please email me with questions.
If you don't need a holiday themed gift card holder idea, just substitute any paper or color combo and you can give this gift card holder any time of year!
