Butterfly Thinlits and the Curvy Keepsake Box

Good morning everyone! I've spent the week getting ready for a craft sale that was scheduled for today. And then, late yesterday, I got word that they decided to cancel it because of the weather. I am glad on one hand because I didn't want to deal with the cold rain. But, now I have lots of things I made and I don't know what I'm going to do with them! Oh well, I will figure it out I guess...

One of the things I made are these adorable Butterfly Curvy Keepsake Boxes. I've had this idea in my head for months now. I finally got the Butterfly Thinlits last week and couldn't wait to make them! 

Butterfly Thinlits, Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit, Butterfly Basics, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, White Vellum, White Bakers Twine, Strawberry Slush Bakers twine, Coastal Cabala Bakers Twine


 I filled them with a variety of Hershey’s candy. I bought a giant bag of the mixed spring chocolate... YUM! 
 I also used my circle mask and the same color Stampin’ Write Markers to add the polkadots to the side of the boxes. I love this technique. All you do is outline the circle and then scribble inside it!!

For Peeps Sake

Good morning everyone! I have a really quick post for you today...

As I've mentioned, I am working on some projects for a craft fair this weekend. Easter is my main focus, so I am using the For Peeps Sake stamp set a lot. 

These little cartons of egg gum are everywhere. I think I bought mine at Big Lots, but I have seen them at several local stores. I made a quick sleeve for them so they are cute! 


I also colored the stamp with Stampin' Write markers. It's a very cute little row of eggs and the markers make it easy to have them all in different colors. 
To make the sleeve, cut a 5 1/8" X 4" piece of Kraft cardstock. Score at 1 5/8", 2 1/4", 3 7/8" and 4 1/2". Fold and adhere. That's it! 

Hope you have a great tHursday. I'll be back tonight with a new Fancy Friday post!

Sweet Stampede Swaps

Hello everyone! Last night, we had out monthly Sweet Stampede meeting. As usual, we talked business, swapped, stamped and had lots of fun. We had lots of belly laughs last night... it was so good to see everyone! 

I thought you'd like to see all of our swaps! I don't remember who's is who, so lpease forgive me ladies, I didn't add your names! And I hope I got one of all of them!

First, I'll show you mine. We focused on the Petal Potpourri bundle during our Make and Takes, so I made them all an additional project to go along with the other five they make. 

 Our swap theme this time was new Occasions Catalog stamps!






And here are some of my team members hard at work play making our five make and takes. They leave with five projects to either use as gifts or to use as class projects in their own business. 
 



If you'd like to join my team, even if you aren't local, we'd love to have you. We have a wonderful FB group and blog. I offer create exclusive tutorials for projects like the box just for them!

Next Class:
(Attend in person or get it "to go" in the mail!)
