Spoon Fudge Treats

I traveled last week to NYC for some department meetings with my colleagues. Being we only get together in person once a year, thought I would be fun to bring treats for them.
I found little jars of spoon fudge at a local gift shop. They are the size of a tiny jelly jar. They fit perfectly into my little gable box.
I put together the boxes at home and then packed them flat in my suitcase. At the hotel the night before, I put the box together, and tied the spoons to the box handle.

Animated Blog Hop

Let's Get Animated!!
Welcome to the Animated Blog Hop Event!!

How fun is this going to be?  Cheery, Bright and Animated, we have a great Hop lined up for you! 

If you just happened to stop by, the blog hop begins over at Jaded Blossom
You'll want to start at the beginning to not miss a thing!
As always, this hop is sponsored by Jaded Blossom & SVG Cutting Files.

My animated character is Russell from the movie Up. He is adorable with his scout uniform and round face. 
When I think of scouts, I think of the wilderness and camping. 
Can't go camping without a s'more kit. So, I present this fun little s'more kit. 

The box itself is a gable box svg file found in the SVG Cutting Files store. 
I added a generic window shape to the front and added some acetate so my treats wouldn't fall out. 
I made my sentiment tags using the JB Mini Tag Dies 2 and the JB Got S'mores? stamps. 

Now here are a few things to know about this hop and getting free files.

 This hop will run for 48 hours, unlike our typical 24 --- so don't rush, enjoy the projects and make sure you follow and play along according to the guides below!

Digi My World Halloween treats.

Hey there, hope everyone is having a great week. It's design day for me over at Digi My World.

So I used some of the fantastic clipart that is in the Digi My World Store.

I know many of you are digital stampers and are awesome at coloring those images, but for me, and I'm thinking a few others, I just don't have the time to color those beautifully detailed images.

So, Digi My World to the rescue.  The store has lots of pre-colored clipart images that you can print and cut just like I did today for my quick Halloween treats.

They look like I spent hours, when in fact they took just a few minutes.

I simply downloaded the Halloween tags clip-art,printed and cut.

I did add a shadow layer in black and then attached it to the lollipop holder which is from MCT.
The sentiments are from Jaded Blossom Mini Tag Dies 2 and Too cute to Spook.

Digi My World can really make your projects come together in a snap if you don't have the time.

Have a crafty day!

Happy Fall!

Fall is here and it's time to get the pumpkins out.

These pumpkin soap containers are perfect for a little fall decor in the house or as a little treat for the neighbor. A simple tag makes them ready for gift giving.

I love this burlap paper for fall projects. It adds great dimension to my tags today.

Tools I used for the tags: Treat Tag Die, Fall dies, Harvest Sign stamps and some pretty ribbon.

Have a crafty day!
