Today is the day!  I am jumping on an airplane for Arizona in just a few hours and spend a week with a couple of my Stampin’ Up demonstrator friends.  It’s going to be way more fun than 3 crazy women should have together and I am SO excited to share the next 7 days with Jackie and Sharon.  You might recognize their names.  They share Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge cards with me sometimes.  I love these girls so much.

I have some fun stuff lined up for you while I’m gone so don’t leave.  I was a busy little stamper preparing for this week away.

While I’m gone I really need to unplug, if you know what I mean.  I am leaving the laptop behind.  That is a little scary but the 3 of us decided we need to step away from our screens this week.  (Note: if you place an order while I am away, I will email you the exclusive tutorial when I return.  I appreciate your patience.)

See  you all tomorrow!

2-Minute Tuesday Tip – Quick Hershey Nugget Wrappers

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching!  Maybe you are looking for a fun and fast way to create a gift for your co-workers or the kiddos at school?  Check out today’s 2-Minute Tuesday Tip!

Let me share today’s video…

 

It’s as easy as an address label!  I used Avery #5260 (1″ x 2 ⅝”)

Here are the stamps I used on my labels.  To order, just click a pic!

*Also available in Wood Mount

I hope you enjoyed today’s tip.  I have been using this tip for years!  Personally I love to stamp all over the sheet and then I have 30 chocolate wrappers ready to go.  It’s always nice to have an idea like this when you need it.  Hershey says that they won’t endorse wrapping the chocolates in labels claiming it can change the taste of the chocolate.  I have no issue with that but if it’s wrapped in foil, how can any “taste” from the label get through?  Just my 2 cents.

Well my friends, I am going to get busy on some stamping.  After being out of commission over the weekend I don’t have a video for you tomorrow so I had better get busy!  I have a few ideas in mind so I need to get the camera rolling!

See ya tomorrow my sweet peeps!

Adoring Arrows Paper Pumpkin Kit – January 2017

I have been having a blast with this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit!  Every month when I open my mailbox and see that beautiful orange box, I get heart palpitations! I absolutely LOVE my Paper Pumpkin kits.  It’s like getting a present every single month.

Look at this CUTE little Valentine box that you can make with this month’s kit.  You get enough supplies to make 24 of them! Wowza!

My girls LOVE Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and these cute heart-shaped Reese’s were perfect to go inside.

I decided to have some fun and see what else I could do with the kit.  Here I added our 2″ x 8″ cellophane bags filled with Valentine M&M’s (my favorite!)

I used the Sweetheart Punch to punch a heart from the box which allowed the M&M’s to show through.  So cute and a fun and different way to use the kit this month.

Last-Minute Stocking Stuffer – Candy Treat Box

Don’t let THIS happen to you!  

Looking for some last-minute stocking stuffers or gifts for co-workers and neighbors?  Look no further than Simply Simple Stamping!  I am going to be sharing some quick and easy ideas for little treats through the end of the week.  I love to create things like this and with a little help from my friends, I have some great ideas waiting for you.

Today’s project is just about and quick and easy as they come!  

I have always had a love for creating boxes but the clear tiny treat boxes are absolutely wonderful.  I love how heavy the acetate is and how SHINY it is.  Did you know that these boxes come with a protective cover on them to keep them from getting scratched up?  Stampin’ Up knows we want pretty boxes.

A Stampin’ Up demonstrator friend of mine, Becky, took a strip of Designer Paper, wrapped it around the box to make it beautiful! I love how it turned out! 

Those Layering Circle Framelits are perfect for these too AND they are on sale right now too!

Does anyone else not feel like Christmas is this weekend?  My whole family is feeling this way.  Not sure why.  Did Christmas come early?  Did we not listen to enough Christmas music?  What’s the deal?  I got a really late start on shopping this year. Maybe that’s it?  

We are excited about Christmas, don’t get me wrong, but it just feels like it should be a couple of weeks away still.  

I want to do some stamping for my girls today so I think I will turn on the Michael Bublé channel on Pandora and find my inner Christmas elf.  ELF!  That’s it!  We have only watched “Elf” once this season.  We usually watch it about a hundred times.  There ya go.  Problem solved.

Have a great Wednesday everyone!!!
