Hello Blog Hop- Paisleys and Poseys

Hello and welcome back to the Hello Blog Hop!

In sticking with our Holiday Catalog Theme, this time I decided to use the Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set.
I had an idea in mind and I decided to give it a try. We have some new DSP called Fancy First Specialty DSP. I wondered what it would look like with the paisleys embossed and then rubbed in navy. Well, it looks awesome! The  paper already has an image embossed don it, so not only did the embossed paisleys resist the ink, but so did the diagonal stripes on the paper! Fun!  

I used Night of Navy and Real Red. I love this combo! So classic! I chose a sentiment from Love & Affections. The trim is the Real Red Sating Ribbon. I cut the edge off and pilled the fibers out.  Lastly, I used the Paisley Framelits to cut the red shape. Beautiful, isn't it?

Alright, your on to the next stop, back to the top, Sarah Berry!

Hey everybody! I have a new video for you today- yay! I want to take minute and show you these cute bone pens I found on Amazon (Link at the bottom.) They go perfectly with the Mr. Funny Bones stamp set!

These are super easy and FAST to make, which I love!

Keurig Cup Gift Box- Pumpkin Spice Edition

Hello my friends! Remember this project I showed at my online workshop a couple of weeks ago? 
It holds a K-Cup and it's situated in our new White Gift Boxes. In the video tutorial (see below) I mentioned that you could put a bag of marshmallows in the bottom as well (this one is hot chocolate.) 

I have received several emails asking where I had seen those individual bags of marshmallows and I can't remember nor have I been able to find them! But, my friend and downline Lisa sent this picture to me yesterday. She found them at HEB (our local grocery store). She said they were on the bottom shelf next to the colored marshmallows. :-) I knew I had seen them at some point! 

I have made a bunch for my upcoming Craft Fair and used Pumpkin Spice. I also wanted to say that my friend Renee BRILLIANTLY said to me "Why don't you just cut a hole in the lid rather than making that insert...." 
Mind. Blown. 
Why do I always make things harder than they have to be!?!? So, for these, that's exactly what I did!!
I used a stamp from a past Paper Pumpkin Kit- unfortunately it's not still available. It was a treasure for sure. I also used the pumpkin from Jar of Haunts. 


And here is the original video if you need to see how to make these fun little gift boxes!

Thans for stopping by!

Don't forget- TOMORROW is the last day to get the Cookie Cutter Classes!! 


New Cookie Cutter To Go Classes now available!
