Valentine Treat Boxes

Have you looked at page 16 & 17 of the Occasions Mini? You'll find adorable treat boxes for Valentines. I'll be making them with my children this weekend, so stop by next week and I'll post some pictures here for you to see.

If you love them as much as I do, don't delay, they are one of those products that will be available while supplies last - there's a total of 30, yes, 30 boxes per package. I ordered one of each and they really are super simple to assemble I promise!

Have a fabulous weekend!

Christmas Treats For Teachers

We always like to make something special at Christmas for those around us who help make our life special all year long. The children loved giving out these cute gifts - each box had a peppermint chocolate chimney and a little bag of peppermint bark.

We used My Digital Studio to make personalized tags for each package and who can resist Stampin' Up! ribbon to add a touch of luxury?

I love all the fabulous new accessories in the brand new Occasions Mini and my ladies do too. Would you like to be part of an Accessory Share?

This means you get a usable selection of samples and then you can choose which items you’d like more of.

My ladies started emailing me about an accessory share as soon as the Occasions Mini went live online and my first share is already full.

How does it work?

It is against Stampin’ Up! rules to sell their products on (cash and carry), but what I can do is create a group of eight ladies and order all the items below and then divide the items among the group.

If you would like to be part of this share, please email me ASAP.

As soon as I have eight ladies signed up I’ll place the order.

Once the items arrive, I’ll divide them, add your FREE butterfly gift and mail them to you.

$15.95 Accessory Sampler Includes:

• 3 Real Red Corduroy Buttons - 1 each of 3 sizes
• 3 Pretty in Pink Corduroy Buttons - 1 each of 3 sizes

• 13.5 Yards of Satin Ribbon – 1.5 yards each of nine colors. Colors include: Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla, Celery, Old Olive, Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Real Red & Basic Black

• 2 Pretty in Pink Brads - 1 each of 2 designs
• 2 Real Red Brads - 1 each of 2 designs
• 2 Chocolate Chip Brads - 1 each of 2 designs

Bonus included FREE

• Embossed butterfly assortment that coordinates with Accessory Sampler

Cost $15.95 – cash or check (not valid with any other offers, club orders or groups)
Please email me to join the Occasions Mini Sampler Share – your payment reserves your spot in the share – checks will not be cashed until share is full. You can order as many shares as you wish.

My Digital Studio To The Rescue

It's 10:00 PM and your son is due at a Birthday party in the morning and you don't have a card, or a stamp that is suitable for a seven year old to create one. What do you do? Turn on your computer and use My Digital Studio to create something that's just perfect.......

Robby has a huge dog and my son is allergic to dogs, so we have a cat and yes the boys are great friends anyway. I loved making this card because it captured so perfectly the boys and their life and it's personalized for Robby too (I had to change the spelling at the last minute).

Here's the actual card:

Don't forget, if you already own Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio, new images are being added all the time and you can check them out at my web site under SHOP NOW.

My card was created using just the images that came with the original software - I'm loving it. I just wish I had more time to spend playing with it.

I've been playing with my new toy from the Occasions Mini

OK, I admit it, I didn't cut out a single one of these beautifully embossed butterflies and I didn't dry emboss them either - Ahhhh, you think they are some kind of kit don't you?........

Nope, they are fabulously easy to create with a beautiful new die for my Big Shot. I'm soooo excited, I love butterflies, I've just never had the time to sit and cut them out and now I have the best of both worlds thanks to our fabulous new Occasions Mini..... Have you taken a look at it yet?
