Be of Good Cheer Delightful Decorations Tag – Sneak Peek

Love the new in color Gumball green, its so bright and fun! This is a very simple tag to make, its from the 2 tags die, and I just punched out a design with the ornament punch and a to/from stamp from delightful decorations. See the perfect coverage on the stamped image? That’s all due to the new firm foam style ink pads!

Stamps: Delightful Decorations

Paper: Gumball Green, Whisper White, Be of Good Cheer DSP

Ink: Gumball Green

Accessories: Big Shot & Two Tags die, ornament punch, cherry cobbler baker’s twine


Be of Good Cheer Scallop Envelope Box – Sneak Peek

This is a refreshingly easy box to make 🙂 4 cuts of a scallop envelope die and just adhere the tabs together into a box and decorate! The top flaps can also be closed on top, but I think this is probably best with them tied open.


Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Be of Good Cheer DSP

Accessories: Big Shot and Scallop Envelope Die, Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon

Comfort Cafe Midnight Muse Milk Carton Box – Sneak Peek

This is another project that I’ve wanted to try since I first saw it at last summer’s convention. This isn’t painfully difficult, but at the same time, isn’t exactly simple either. But its a great box that will fit a small, but not tiny, gift.

Dawn O. made a great video that will definitely help you make this. You’ll find her page with the video linked under her name.


Paper: Midnight Muse, Comfort Cafe

Accessories: Very Vanilla 1/8″ Taffeta ribbon, big shot and milk carton die, sticky strip.

Springtime Candy Flowers! – Sneak Peek

I must say that this idea (along with most others you see on my blog) is not original to me, it was from another local demonstrator Jennifer Bloomquist! You’ll find her original post under her linked name. These are super cute party favors, but make sure you use something really sticky to get the candy to stay on the flower since foil can be pretty slippery. These are easter Rollos, but kisses or even mini peanut butter cups might work great too.


Paper: Lucky Limeade, Floral District DSP

Accessories: Blossom Punch

Betsy’s Blossoms Heart Shaped Box – Sneak Peek

Not only is this a new stamp set, and new paper, but new colors too! This heart shaped box is a bit labor-intensive and I found a fabulous video on Stampin Connection (a demonstrator only website). If there is enough interest I will hold a class for us to make these boxes!


Stamps: Betsy’s Blossoms

Paper: Primrose Petals (new in color!), Floral District DSP, Whisper White

Ink: Primrose Petals, Gumball Green

Accessories: Framelits hearts, tombow mono multi adhesive, patience 😉

Floral District Scallop Envelope Love Notes Box – sneak peek!

Love this little box! My mother-in-law Joanie made me one last year for Easter, and it has taken me quite awhile to make one myself… I used the beautiful new Floral district paper, I really love this particular pattern with the more realistic flowers… and love the colors!


Stamps: Best of Everything

Paper: Whisper White, Floral District DSP

Ink: Tangerine Tango

Accessories: Whisper White 1/4″ grosgrain Ribbon, Curly Label Punch, Big Shot and Scallop Envelope Die.

Comfort Cafe & Itty Bitty Banners Sneak Peek

I have to say, this is one of my favorite cards that I’ve made with the new sneak peek goodies. This is not made with a die, but just punches… square and corner rounding. And then is finished off with an Early espresso button and some Pool Party bakers twine.


Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners

Paper: Pool Party, Midnight Muse (new in color), Very Vanilla, Comfort Cafe DSP, Soft Suede

Ink: Midnight Muse

Accessories: Sponge, 1″ Square punch, 1-1/4″ Square Punch, corner rounder punch, Scallop border punch, 3/4″ circle punch, dimensionals, pool party Baker’s Twine.
