Scentsational Hot Chocolate Pouch

Here's another great treat pouch, also seen on Dawn Olchefske's blog...
Her card has what looks like a chocolate covered peppermint stick but I couldn't
find any of those so I settled for a candy cane. A very cute idea!

Watercolor Wonder Gift Bag

Here's a quick and easy gift bag made with Watercolor Wonder which is a two step stamp set.  I just randomly stamped the poinsetta with both the bold and the outline stamps.  The cover is stamped with Heart of Christmas from the Holiday Catalog.  The bag topper is an 8 1/2 x11 carstock sheet with a hole
cut for the handles.  It's done in Cherry Cobbler and tied with tulle ribbon.

Apple Cider Pouches

I got the original idea for this from Dawn Olchefske, but not having all the products, improvised a little to be able to make this.  I used the Autumn Accents die cut for the leave and embossed them with various embossing folders.  The DSP is from the Orchard Harvest collection.  I just added the cinnamon stick by placing it in one of our 1x8 cellophane bags.

Wine Glass Charms

I participated in a Holiday Boutique this weekend.  Here is my table and here is one of the items available for purchase.  These cute little Wine Glass Charms are made with Jolly Bingo Bits and packaged them using one the empty containers that your clear blocks come in.  It's a great and inexpensive gift for the holidays.  I used the small oval punch and the scallop oval punch with these. And...Jolly Bingo bits is a set of 24 stamps so you make them all different!

New Paper Trimmer Available!

  • An extra-wide 6-1/4" cutting base and an extended 14-1/2" ruler
    • The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked in 1/4" (4 mm) increments, allowing for small measurements.
    • The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
    • The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts.
    • When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across the entire surface.
    • The cutting base and track include a full ruler, incorporating measurements down to 1/16" and grid lines that mark each quarter inch.
    • All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won't wear off.
    • The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin' Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
  • A full 12" cutting and scoring track
    • The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you don't have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you're not using them.
    • The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 12" (30.5 cm) without having to remove or switch out handles.
    • The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport.
    • The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
  • Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
    • The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
    • Handles come in two colors: dark for cutting, light for scoring.
    • The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you're cutting.
    • The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will begin.
  • Storage compartment under base
    • The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades. 
    • Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools organized, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you've stored.  

    Diaper Cake and Baby Favors

    This is a diaper cake I made recently for a co-worker.  We had a small shower
    and I decided to make this as a centerpiece.  We don't have a whole lot of ladies
    who work in my department so I thought it would be nice to make it a little
    more special since there weren't too many of us.  It's my first attempt at making
    a diaper cake!  Not bad huh?  And I made the party favors as well!  We had a great time
    and the cake was a hit!

    the jar is a die cut window backed with a window sheet so you can see through and view the corn!
    The Designer paper is the new Orchard Harvest and it's accented with Linen Thread and Naturals Designer Buttons.
