I needed to make a “hand stamped” item for a Stampin Up meeting tomorrow. I love these little test tube things, they are so quick and easy and you get a huge “WOW”! The patter is from Lisa Somerville, I altered it a little. When I made this the first time the tubes wouldn’t stand straight so I added a 2nd set of holes inside the box so they’d be held in place. I also added Close to Cocoa on the back for added support (you can see the scalloped top). I hope the ladies like this! That “Love you Much” bundle sure is coming in handy!! Thanks for stopping by, tomorrow I will have the calendar pages posted. Happy Sunday!
Supplies (all supplies are Stampin’ Up!)
Stamps: Love you Much
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa
Paper: Candy Lane dsp (from the bundle), Close to Cocoa, Riding Hood Red cardstocks
Accessories: Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon, scallop circle punch, circle punches, twine.

This week’s Bloggers Challenge was to use any Red, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and either Very Vanilla or Whisper White. Well since I also have to make some Valentine swap cards for Sunday I decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone…here’s the result! You’ve got to go and check out everyone else’s BC cards…they are awesome! You can click on the button in my sidebar. I am sure I am the last one on the planet to try out one of Stampin’ Up!’s punches that coordinate with a stamp…omg! these are way too cool! I used the 3 heart stamp from the Love You Much stamp set, and the coordinating punch…lines up with those hearts perfectly!!! You can get the stamp set, the punch and the new Candy Lane Dsp as part of the Love You Much bundle for only $41.48 (that’s 20% off!!). Click on the “Love You Much bundle” words above and then click “Shop Now” in the upper right…easy as pie! Thanks for stopping by!

This was for Hubby’s Dad & Step-Mom. I really wanted to make them something home made and fun for Christmas this year. Neither of them drink coffee or tea, but they both like hot chocolate. I wonder if Target realizes that they are a crafters dream store? How many times have we found the funnest alterables in the $1 bin? Well none of this came from the $1 bin, but alot of it did come from the Christmas baking aisle! Christmas tree shaped marshmallows, I got some plastic spoons and dipped a couple in milk chocolate and a couple in white chocolate. The cute bags came from there also. I bought some huge pretzle sticks at my local cake decorating store and dipped them in chocolate and then covered them with Christmas Tree candy sprinkles! That is a Spaghetti jar filled with NesQuick powder. I also included my boys’ favorite “Secret Hot Chocolate” recipe! The main image is from a set I won from Gina K Designs recently! (Gotta love Gina!!!). While I am quite proud of myself with all of the Christmas goodies I made this year, I am equally happy at this point to be done making anything “Christmas”, lol! Thanks for stopping by, tomorrow is Bloggers Challenge day, and on Saturday I hope to post my calendar page contributions for the Bella Calendar Swap.

I made this card organizer for my mom (who seems to be the biggest admirer of my cards, yup, she was my first “buyer”). I can totally see my mom making the same face as Bossy Elzy and in that same stance, lol! I made this box at 2 am on Christmas morning, because I couldn’t sleep and because “the idea just came to me…”. She really liked her box, but I guess now I’d better get busy filling it up for her! For the index cards, I made her 8 of them and I left them blank so that she could come up with her own categories, etc.
Supplies (all supplies are Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Bossy by Elzybells UK, “I’m not bossy…” sentiment also by Elzybells UK
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black
Paper: Maine Blueberry, Night of Navy, Old Olive and Whisper White cardstocks
Accessories: Mellow Moss Taffeta ribbon, Top Note die, Copic markers, Tab punch, corner rounder, Crop-a-dile, On Board Chip Board

Haha, I love this line of t-shirts, etc. When I saw this designer paper at my LSS, I knew I had to get it. It made a great cover for a notepad for my Daddy. It’s hard to come up with some kind of alterable for a guy. I also added a little “b” Chipboard monogram. Fun, quick, Easy and best of all Dad loved it!
