Today’s post is not a card!  I decided to create some cute treat holders for the sweet trick or treaters who will be coming to our door in a couple of weeks instead!

The are little coffins – aren’t they cute?  I’ll share the template so you can create your own at the bottom of this post.  In the meantime, What Will you Stamp posted a challenge to use the Spooky Cat stamp set, and that is where the greeting comes from.

I used the Hardwood background stamp to add the wood grain to the Soft Suede coffin and also made good use of three new ribbons to decorate these cuties.

Here’s the list of products for you.

As promised, you can print off the template below to create your own little coffins.

Have a great time creating and Happy Stamping.


Hi and welcome.  Today’s post is all about gold and silver and a pretty gift box.


I loved the colour challenge posted by The Paper Players for this week and decided that creating this gift box was the way to go.  Who says you can’t use gold and silver at the same time!

The Christmas Magic and Thin of Tags stamp sets are going away very soon so this was the perfect opportunity to use them.  (See the Year-end Closeout items HERE)

Here’s another angle showing those pretty golden bells.


Yes, I cut each one out with my Paper Snips!

Notice the tiny dots?  I used the 1/8″ Hand-held punch and then glued each one on using the Fine-tip glue pen.


Here’s the full list of products that I used in case you’d like to try this yourself.  The White Gift Boxes are the perfect solution for small gifts or even some chocolate treats!

Don’t forget to check out the Year-end Closeouts – they won’t be around for long.

Happy Stamping!


Do you have a recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies?  Last week we got together to create some gifts for Christmas giving and made this jar of ingredients to make the best chocolate chip cookies.


What better stamp set to use than the Cookie Cutter Christmas set and the matching Candy Cane Lane designer paper!  The label measures 6″ x 5-1/2″ (folded at 2-3/4″) to hold the recipe for these delicious cookies.  Adding a candy cane is the “icing on the cookie”, LOL.

This is a simple gift to create – all you need is a quart jar to hold the ingredients.

Here’s the list of products that we used.

Give this a try and Happy Stamping!


Have you seen the White Gift boxes that are on page 7 of the Holiday Catalogue?  They are 3″ x 3″ and make great containers for small gifts, like candy.


I took the colours from The Paper Players challenge to create the flower on top.  It uses the Mint Macaron, Emerald Envy and Real Red perfectly.  I used the Festive Flower Builder Punch to create the flower and glued it all together with Liquid Multi-purpose glue.  It holds it together much better than the SNAIL adhesive.

Here’s another view.  There is a plastic sleeve that is made to slip over the box.


And, here’s a close-up of the festive flower.


I plan on filling this pretty box with Purdy’s chocolates for someone special.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

Take care and Happy Stamping to you.


Happy Friday and check out these cute gift bags that I made using the Gift Bag Punch Board and the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper(NEW).

Sweet Gift Bags -

These would be great for your favourite student and I put a little somethin’, smoothen’ in them as a special treat.

I think that adding those cute balloons from the Balloon Celebration bundle are the icing on the treat!  Of course I had to show off the new In Color Ruched Ribbon too!

If you haven’t used the Gift Bag Punch board lately, I hope this inspires you to get it out and use it.  If you need to add it to your supplies, click HERE to shop.

Here’s the complete this of goodies that I used.

Have a wonderful Long Weekend and Happy Stamping!


Do you like to wear hats?  Any kind of hat?  How about a party hat?  We used to have the tradition of wearing party hats for Christmas dinner so I took a walk down memory lane while creating these cuties!

Christmas Party Hats -

I used the Home for Christmas Designer paper for these and created a large one (pretty much uses a whole 12″ x 12″ sheet) as well as the two smaller ones(1 sheet of 12″ x 12″).  Then I went to work adding decorations.

If you would like the pattern to create these fun hats yourself, just Click this LINK and have fun creating!

We’re in the last few days before Christmas and I sincerely hope that you are all ready for the day!  I’ll be posting up to December 24th and then will be taking a few days off to spend with my family.

Stay tuned for a couple more pretty projects and I’ll post the list of ingredients for today’s hats below.

Wahoo – the Festive Flower Builder Punch is one of the excellent Weekly Deals this week!  Want to know what you can make with it?  Here you go…..

Gift package finished -

That beautiful glimmer flower was created with that punch and makes the perfect accessory for this cute gift box!

Cynthia’s Tip:  When using Glimmer paper with this punch I highly recommend that you use it face down on the table to cut your pieces.  Glimmer paper is thicker and it will be easier on your hand to press down while the punch is placed on the table!

I made the he gift box using the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies out of the Home for Christmas designer series paper(139592).  When using these thinlits dies on a certain pattern, it is important to make sure that one side is cut upside down as per photo, so that the pattern will run the same way when the package is put together.

Gift package step 1 -

Here’s the list of all of the great Christmas-themed Weekly Deals!  Make sure go get them early – these items will go very quickly!!!


Have you tried the Gift Bag Punch Board?  It makes creating a loot bag very easy!  This is another one that I’ll be filling full of goodies for our visiting trick or treaters.

Boo treat Bag -

I cut a piece from the Into the Woods Designer Series paper to 5-1/2″ x 10″ and then just followed the instructions to create the bag.  The ghosts were created using the Large Oval Punch and then I drew on their faces with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker.   Aren’t they cute?


Don’t forget about the excellent deals that are available this week. See them all in my Online Store.

Here’s the list of fun products that I used to create this cut loot bag.

Have you been checking out the Festive Flower Builder Punch(139682) in the Holiday Catalogue?  Well, I purchased this very fun tool and have been busy creating with it.  This is a Poinsettia I made using the Gold Glimmer Paper(133719).

Poinsettia -

I cut the glimmer paper to 3″ x 12″ and punched enough petals to build this pretty flower.  It was glued together using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue(110755) but if you don’t want to wait for it to dry between layers, then I recommend using a Hot Glue Gun.

Stampin’ Up! has put out a video on how to use this very cool punch.  Take a look and give it a try for yourself.

If you need any of the products used just pop on over to my Online Store.
Happy viewing and stamping!


Wow, I’ve been playing with a brand new tool that’s coming in the new Annual Catalogue from Stampin’ Up!  It’s called the Gift Bag Punch Board and I was having so much fun using it that I created this trio of small gift bags.

Gift Bag Trio -

The Birthday Bash Designer Series paper lends itself very well to bright a pretty gift bags.  I used a brand new stamp set to create the tag called You’re So Sweet  Some “going away” twine was used to make the handles for each bag – Painted Blooms Cotton Twine(137873) and Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine(135636).

Enjoy your holiday Monday and don’t forget to take some time to do some stamping!
