3D Thursday - Guest Designer Week

Well, this week I'm a bit slow for posting.  Everything is just a bit crazy with my grandkids out of school right now and me being the sitter and teacher.  We are so excited to welcome Michele Wright from over at The Cow Whisperer's Creative Cards.   Michele created a super cute little treat box.
Michele used Stampin' Up!s Welcome Easter stamp set and stamped the cute little Lamb on Whisper White Cardstock and used Stampin' Blends to color him in.
Michele used Rocco Rose cardstock for the base of her box.  She then used Smokey Slate cardstock on top of that then Pleased As Punch DSP to finish off her box.
Here's one more view of this adorable little box.  For the FREE printable Project Sheet just click on the link below.  That's all for this week crafty friends.  Prayers that you all stay healthy in the weeks to come.

Carrot Treat Box - Guest Tutorial Writer For Splitcoast Stampers

Good morning!  I'm excited to share with you a cute Carrot Treat Box that I designed as a Guest Tutorial Writer for Splitcoast Stampers this week.  This treat box is made by starting with a 6" x 6" piece of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock.
 I used green tissue paper for the carrot green leafy top and love the way it looks.  The tissue also holds the chocolate candies.

I chose to use our pretty Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to tie around the green tissue.  I used the stamp set Fable Friends to stamp my tag.  
One more picture showing the top of the carrot box.
For a list of supplies and directions check out the end of my post for the link to Splitcoast.
  Here's the video tutorial I made.

Time for you to make one of your own.  Have a crafty day friends!

3D Thursday - Tulip Builder Punch Mini Treat Basket

Welcome to 3D Thursday, where ever Thursday we post a 3D Project with a link to print FREE directions!  This week it's my turn at the craft table.  I came up with a super cute little treat basket and of course it holds chocolate!
Let's check it out!
I came up with this idea a few days ago as I was getting ready for my monthly stamp group.  I try and make 2 cards and a small 3D project with them each month.  So checking to see what kind of chocolate I had in my stash, I found Hershey Nuggets.  Wohoo!
Now I do have to say that when I first made the little basket I did not attach a handle to it, but Dana Mayberry added one to her's at the workshop and I loved how it looked.  I LOVE when my customers (friends) add to my ideas!  So I ask if it was ok to add a handle to mine too.  She was excited that I wanted to.
So here we have a sweet little tulip basket crafted together by using the Tulip Builder Punch.  Oh my! you will not believe how super simple this project is!  I also inked up part of a stamp from the Timeless Tulips stamp set for the tag.
Here's one more view from the top. 
 I really hope that you enjoy my mini basket and will click on the link below to print off the FREE directions.  If you would like to order any of the products listed to make this fun project you can just click on the "Shop Now" button and it will take you right to my website.  Remember during Salebration for ever $50 you spend you get FREE stuff.
Have a crafty day!

Triple Valentines

Good morning everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day.  It was a very cold one here in southern Illinois.  This past week I helped my triplet grandsons make valentines for their classmates at school.  I thought you might like to see the boys and how much they have grown, Oh and check out their valentines too.
Jace was the first one to make his valentines.  This fun little treat holder holds a small Hershey bar and Jace is all about chocolate!  Good job, Jace!  The instructions for the fun holder can be found in my 3D Thursday posts files.
Reid loves chocolate too! and he used our retired 2 x 6 cello bags to add chocolate hearts too.  Super easy, we just added a topper to the bag.  Good job, Reid!
Cade and his matchbook style valentines which hold a package of sour patch gummies.  Good job, Cade!  While sometimes it get a little crazy when they want to make something.  I am so very grateful that the love to craft.  It makes my heart so happy.
Thanks so much for stopping in and checking out the boys crafty fun.
