Easy Valentine Treat

I showed this idea on my recent video, but I didn’t give the details.So I will do that today!

I sat down last week and made five of these in a very short period of time. The Acetate Card Boxes are 3 1/8″ square x 13/16″ deep. So they are almost 1″ deep and are the perfect size for mixed nuts, M&M’s, Ghirardelli Chcoclate and on and on!

You can click here if you want to watch me fold the box and put it together on my last video.  It’s the first of two projects that I made in the video.  I used 22″ of the 3/8″ Double Stitched Satin Real Red Ribbon and the Many Heart Dies.  The Happy Valentines Day comes from a set called Meant to Be which is in the main Annual Catalog.  I added the heart to the box with dimensionals.   If you want to add a little heart charm to the top, you’ll see a picture of that below, too.  The charms are a part of the Love You Always Suite in the Mini Catalog.

Below is how I first made this box, still using a heart out of the Mini Catalog.  It’s smaller and more ornate.

Friends are Like Seashells Bundle with Video

This bundle is so much fun to work with!  I bought it because I want to create a month for my calendar with it.  In the meantime I have a friend who loves the ocean!  I decided to make a card for her out of this bundle!  I love this idea from the catalog and just changed up a few things about it!

Click here to watch my You Tube Video to see the steps for making this card!

You can see the Wink of Stella a little bit better below. In person, it is such a “wow”!!!

Steps which you will see on the video::

  • Cut out the large shells die (5 1/2″x 4″)
  • Emboss it using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder
  • Stamp each shell onto the embossed c/s:  So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand.
  • Use a sponge dauber for the Soft Sea foam and the Sahara Sand colors.
  • Add wink of Stella.
  • Stamp the greeting of your choice.
  • I used a greeting from the Happy Thoughts set out of the current Mini Catalog.
  • I punched out three extra plain ovals to place underneath the Blushing Bride Layering Scalloped Oval.

Sweet Ice Cream Bundle

Feeling so much better after falling up the stairs!!  That was not fun!

I saw this idea for the designer paper background here through Chris Slogar on Pinterest.

Here is another idea from the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle.  I used Blackberry Bliss card stock and ink.  I saw the idea for the designer paper part of the card on Pinterest several weeks ago. I love the font on the Happy Birthday!  I punched out several extra scoops of ice cream so that the ice cream would pop off the card a little bit!

  • The ice cream designer paper is 2″ at the top and 2 1/2″ at the bottom.
  • The Blackberry Bliss DSP is 1 1/2″ at the top and 1″ at the bottom.
  • It’s pretty easy to just mark the DSP with a pencil and use the cutter to make the pretty angles.
  • I Stamped the crisscross design on the  Crumb Cake ice cream cone and then ran it through the Absolutely Argyle Embossing Folder. I think that you could emboss a whole piece of c/s and then punch out the cones at the correct angle. That would be faster if you are making multiples.
  • I used one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies for the greeting and then simply cut out the Blackberry Bliss layer with my cutter.
