Tin of Treats!

This cute little lunchbox is from Michael's. What a perfect little box to fill with goodies for my little one. Some sparkly fingernail polish and body spray, playdoh, hair wraps, bracelet, treats, kleenex and kaleidoscope. :) It was easy to decorate with diecuts from K & Co. and my Xyron 510 and 150 adhesive machines. A little rub on from Scrapworks is on the handle.

Gift Ideas

I received my new Papertrey stamps (Made of Snow) in the mail last night. I could not wait to ink them up. This is the result. A cute little bag of homemade cocoa topped off with the sweetest little snowman. The paper is Vintage Cream, Sweet Blush and Vellum from Papertrey, Going Grey ink from SU!, Stickles by Ranger, flocking by Stampendous, glue pen by Martha StewartQuickutz and Spellbinders dies, cuttlebug die cut machine, glassine bag from Papertrey.

The wine bottle wrap is using a new stamp set from Close To My Heart (Festive Frills) and gordeous new paper from Graphic 45 (Botanicabella). The berries are accented with stickles, the die cut acorn is from K & Co., base cardstock is Bazzill and the ribbon is from Cosmo Cricket. We give a lot of wine as gifts during the holiday season. Wrapping the bottle like this allows the recipient to leave the bottle out on display. I used a glue dot to hold the wrapper to the bottle so they can just slip it off and reuse it. :)

Halloween is so fun! I enjoy decorating and making cute little goodies for others at halloween. These cute pumpkin wrapped truffles needed just the right packaging. I think this reused ribbon tube is just perfect. :) You can see their happy, sweet faces and it was easy to decorate. The card is a combo of products from Heidi Grace, Doodlebug and K & Co. I used my copic markers to color in the house and stickles to add a touch of sparkle. Enjoy!

Sorry to have disappeared.

Life took over. I have been busy designing, getting the preschooler settled into a routine, putting finishing touches on the new addition and fighting off a head cold. :) Whew!! I am so jazzed that the holidays are right around the corner. There are so many fun new papers, stamps and embellishments to play with right now. I should be posting regularly again and look forward to sharing some really fun stuff.

The following three peeks were made using Glue Arts adhesives. Glue Arts has some amazing adhesives that are easy to use and great prices (check out their free shipping!!). Check them out at and sign up for their monthly newsletter full of ideas and inspiration.

These projects were made with Xyron products. My Personal Cutting System, Wishblade and Design Runner are made by Xyron. They are best known for their sticker maker machines, which I love, but they offer so much more. Check out their online galleries, forum and retail store at
