Stampin'Up! Punch Mug Tags!

Hey there! This morning I get to help a dear friend set up the reception for her daughter's wedding tomorrow! yay! I will be leaving in just a bit, but before I go I wanted to show you the mugs I've been selling at craft fairs this year:

Aren't these just the cutest? I found the mugs at Walmart, filled them with a hot chocolate packet, a candy cane, and a handful of Hershey's kisses, put them in a Stampin' Up! large gusseted bag, then made punched tags to finish them off!

After I found the Owl tag idea online, I punched the 2" wide x 4" long tag base of Under The Tree Specialty Paper with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, then added the Owl and greeting. I used the Owl Builder Punch and the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch to create the owl, then used the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the medium eye circle punch in the Owl Builder Punch to punch out the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer circles for the Santa hat!

I used the same Scallop Tag Topper Punch and Owl Builder Punch for the penguin. I trimmed off the ears and the feet from the owl body with my Paper Snips, then added Crushed Curry feet and used the heart that is included in the Owl punch to make the Crushed Curry beak!

Frosted Sequins and the Petite Pairs greeting add festive finishing touches to both tags!

That's all for now. You can find all the supplies to create these little guys in my online store here:

Here's the link again to the PDF of the Extravaganza:

Holiday Extravaganza Products List

Here's the final installment of the treat bags. I used the Petite Cafe Gift Bags from page 10 of the Holiday Catalog and Nature's Peace:


I used the Stars Framelits to cut out the tag layers with Kraft and Lost Lagoon Cardstock. The Stars Framelits are 20% off through December 2nd!


The Petite Cafe bags come 10 to a package for $5.95, are poly-lined, food-safe, and are a little larger size, 3 1/2" x 2 1/2" x  8", so they are perfect for homemade holiday treats!

Stampin' Up! Vellum & Snowflake Treat Bag!

Hey there! I'm at a craft fair in Salem, IL today at the Community Center, so if you are in the vicinity, come on by and check us out!

Today's little bag was created with White Vellum cardstock, then embossed with the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Folder. I slid a little piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock inside the bag so the embossing shows up nicely.


I cut snowflakes from Silver Foil sheets with dies from the Snowflake Card Thinlet set, then adhered them with glue dots. A Frosted Sequin snowflake and Rhinestone Basic Jewels complete the snowy theme. I tied the bag together with Lost Lagoon 3/8" Satin Ribbon.

That's all for now. I will show you a couple of really fun items I offered at the craft fair tomorrow, so be sure to come back on Sunday!

Here's your supply list for today's project. You can purchase everything you need in my Online Store:

Stampin' Up! Another Treat Bag, This Time With Ornamental Pine!

Hey there! It's Friday already. How did this week go by so fast? I still have SO MUCH to do! YIKES!!!

Today's treat bag is NOT the last one, there are still a few more coming!


I heat-embossed the branch from Ornamental Pine with white powder on the bag I fashioned from Whisper White Vellum. I stamped the pinecones with Early Espresso Classic ink, then quickly sprinkled them with Clear embossing powder. Our Classic ink, while a water-based dye ink, stays wet longer than our old classic ink, so you can emboss it if you work fast! After heating with my Heat Tool I hand-cut the pinecones with Papper Snips. I added the Petite Pairs greeting, Bird Punch leaves, Gold Basic Metal Button, and Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine knot on the button with Glue Dots.

I closed this bag with a bit of Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon tied in a knot. Easy-Peasy!

That's all for now. Here's your shopping list for my online store:

You can order from my store any time of the day or night, BUT I need to let you know that starting next week, Monday, November 24, Stampin' Up! will be hosting an Online Extravaganza sale with discounts on select items and bundles, so you need to check it out next week! There will also be door-buster specials on the first day, Monday November 24 and the last day, Monday December 1st!

Stampin'Up! Natures Peace!

Hey there! It's a Liam day again today! yay! He's starting to be so much more verbal! When he was here on Tuesday he was counting, "one,two, two, one", and later when I spoke to his mama on the phone after he went home he kissed my picture on her phone and said, "Mamie, Papa, wanna go?" I know, it's the little things, isn't it? Who knows what he will say today?

My project for you today is a Real Red treat bag white heat-embossed with the main image from Nature's Peace:


I fell in love with this gorgeous image as soon as I found it in the Holiday Catalog. It reminds me of cards we received years ago from some friends of my parents. After embossing the image with white powder on the Real Red bag I decided to not detract from the beauty with a lot of embellishment. I just added a simple knot of Gold Satin Ribbon and dangled an All is Calm Snowflake Embellishment:


I colored the silver snowflake with my Daffodil Delight Blendability marker, then tied it to the handle of the bag with a thread I separated from a piece of Gold Metallic Baker's Twine.

That's all for now. Here's your shopping list for today's project. You can order everything you need from my Online Store:

Stampin' Up! Festival of Trees Vellum Treat Bag!

Hey there! Today will be a busy day. They are finally shelling the corn here on our property so I'm making lunch for the "men", something easy to keep ready, as they will be in and out in shifts, so I'm making Taco Soup! yummy!

Today I have another treat bag for you, this time created with Gold Fancy Foil Vellum cardstock and the Festival of Trees Bundle:
For those of you who have been wondering, the bag is 8 1/2" x 5", scored at 1/2", 3 1/4",4 1/2", and 7 1/4" up from  the long side, and then 1 1/4" up from the right end of the short side. I used a tutorial I found here to learn how.

After gold heat-embossing the tree, I punched it with the Tree Punch and then layered it over a 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punched from a Gold Foil Sheet. The gold-embossed greeting is also from Festival of Trees, punched with the Word Window Punch.

I tied the top of the bag together with a bit of Gold 1/8" Ribbon.

That's all for now! I will be sharing another little treat bag tomorrow, so come on by and check it out!

Here's your shopping list to create today's bag. You will find all these supplies to order in my Online Store:

Stampin' Up! Many Merry Stars Treat Bag!

Hey there! It's a Liam Day today! He arrived a little after 7:30 a.m. in his jammies with his hood up on his coat as it was FREEZING-CHILLY-COLD here this morning!

Today I have another litte treat bag, this time using the Many Merry Stars stamp set from the Holiday Supplement, the Stars Framelits, and the Confetti Stars Punch:


Pretty quick and easy! This little bag whips up really fast!

After silver heat-embossing the star image, I cut it out with a Star framelit, then cut out the next-size-larger star from Silver Foil paper. I backed the stars on the top edge, punched with the Confetti Stars punch, with Silver Foil paper too.

A rhinestone in the center of the star and the Word Window-punched greeting from Petite Pairs finishes it off perfectly!

Here's today's supply list. You will find everything you need in my Online Store:

Stampin' Up! Santa Owl!

Hey there! Now that the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop is over this month, I can start showing you the rest of the projects I created!

Today's project is another little gift bag embellished with a "Santa Owl"!


I used Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper for the bag. This paper is extra heavy, so nice and sturdy. I love this "snowflake" print in white on the kraft colored paper.

I created the owl using the Owl Builder Punch, the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, and the Petite Pennants Builder Punch. His vest is punched from another print from the Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper, and the sparkle on his hat is punched from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with the same size circle on the Owl Builder Punch as the pupils of this eyes. There are SO MANY uses for the Owl Punch!

Frosted Sequins add the perfect finishto the Word Window-punched Petite Pairs greeting, don't you think?

That's all for now. LOTS on my plate this week, so I've got to get busy!

Here's the supply list for todays' project. You can order all of your supplies in my Online Store:
