Twine Frame

This is my darling little niece's son Wyatt.  I wanted to make
a sweet little ornament with his cute face in  the center.
I used our Stampin Up! Circle Framelits and some cardboard
to create this simple ornament.  See below for the how to's

Coffee Cards

Trying to get everything wrapped up this weekend!  litterally!
I picked up these cute starbuck's gift cards and wanted a little holder for them to put on top of gift packages.
They are made by cutting a 2" x  8"1/2" piece of crumb cake cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot with our Polka Dot embossing folder.  Now fold it up from the bottom just 2 1/2"
Put your gift card inside and tie it off on the sides with our Silver Baker's Twine.   I used the Perfect Blend stamp set to make the coffee cup.

Perfect Blend - #131392 for $10.95

Mustache Framelit

I needed me a quick birthday card this morning for a sweet gal.
I used our Mustache Framelit to create this little easy gem.
To give each mustache some texture, I ran each of them though
our embossing folders.  How's that for a quick card!

Popcorn packaging

Okay this season is just passing me by!  I can't seem to get it together this year!  A bit behind for me.  But here are a few packaging ideas for you for the dyed popcorn I posted last week.
I used our basic black cardstock and cut it our with our framelits and then embossed the stamped images on the bottle on the right.  The bottle on the left is just with our chalkboard pen.  
I had my annual luncheon with all my girlfriends from back in the days on sunday.  We had such a great time crafting, game playing and just a lot of laughter!
One of the crafts we did was design your own mug.  I purchased plain white mugs and used Oil Based sharpie pens in black.  Once you have drawn on them you put them in the oven for 25 mins at 350 degrees.   Everyone had fun making these.

These are just a few that were made.....

Cafe Bags and Popcorn

I used popcorn at Thanksgiving for my tablescape and had a whole bunch just sitting in my pantry.  So I looked up how to dye popcorn and who would have guessed how easy and fun it was!
As you can see it turned out so pretty!  Once popped it will be red and green!  What a fun gift to give.
I used our Cafe Bags to put them in and then added a tag made from the Holiday Home set.

Now, how do you make the popcorn you say?
Take a ziplock bag and fill it half full of water.
I added 6 cups of popcorn per bag. Then  just
as you dye Easter eggs you will dye the popcorn by
adding vinegar and food coloring.   I added 1 T of vinegar per
cup of popcorn and the same for the food coloring.  Close bag and let sit overnight turning over the bag as often as you want.

Next day using a slotted spoon put the popcorn on a cookie sheet and put into the oven at 150 degrees for an hour to dry. Make sure and rinse your popcorn well before drying to remove the vinegar.
You can see in this picture how well the popcorn takes on the colors.  Also in the above photo where I mixed the two colors together.  They are soooo festive!
