The Trucks

12 19truck2-001

I meant to post these trucks earlier this week. Sugar Cookie Social guests made them for what I intended to be a party favor to hold the snack sack and chocolate in the truck bed. I bought the snacks before I made a sample of the trucks as you can see the snacks are too large for the truck bed. A chocolate kiss would fit though.

Ink and Share Blog Hop Mini Treat Bag

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. This hop spotlights the Occasions catalog. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Kirsten’s blog and her fabulous project. My hop design is below.

I decided to use the Painted with Love Specialty designer series paper (dsp) to create a party favor using the mini treat bag thinlets. The heavy weight dsp make it a good option to create 3-D items.

Close up of the belly band and the fab rich razzleberry heart and “enjoy” accents that were cut using the mini treat bag thinlet set. The gold foil strip is 1 inch wide cut from our 12×12 inch gold foil sheets. See the next photo for an economy gold foil bow tip.

There are gold accents on the opposite side of the polka dot print dsp that I used to decorate the narrow note card. I positioned the bow thinlet over the gold foil. Then realized I could cover up the bow hole with a rich razzleberry heart. No one will know but you and me:)

The Painted with Love dsp and the narrow note cards and envelopes are on page 19 of the Occasions catalog. A hot chocolate packet nicely fits inside the mini treat bag. I delivered these to staff this week at a senior living community I visit. They were tickled that I took the time to create these and hand deliver them with thanks for making it possible for me to visit the community.

Coffee Break Blog Hop

I hope you are enjoying our Coffee Break Blog Hop along with a cup of coffee or tea. I’m hopping with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. You may have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

Today’s hop features the Coffee Break designer series paper (dsp) with coordinating Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cup framelits. With 12 patterns to select from on 6 double sided sheets, our blog hop projects may or may not include coffee themes. The opposite sides of the dsp usually feature a complimentary pattern like strips, circles or asymmetrical prints that may be used instead of the coffee patterns.

I decided to create a dark chocolate espresso bean treat sack for my project. Our 2×8 inch cellophane bags holds about a serving of beans after I cut the bag to 5 inches. But a serving for me is 3 beans. I will probably be wide awake tonight since I sampled while I was designing:)

The bag topper is 2×4 inches of early espresso cardstock that was embossed using the softly falling embossing folder and folded to make a 2×2 inch topper. The next layer is 4×1 1/2 inches from the Coffee Break designer series paper package. A whisper white 1 1/4 inch circle creates a mat for the mini coffee cup that was “embossed” using the sleeve framelit from the Coffee Cups framelit set.

The Coffee Break dsp was snipped as shown to create the flag.

Most of the supplies used to create the treat bag topper. I see I did not include the Softly Falling embossing folder and 1 1/4 inch circle punch.

If you are attending the Card Buffet today, this is your party favor!

Toil and Trouble, Boil and Bubble

Jim’s sister Sue created this pin worthy tablescape. It screams Something Wicked This Way Comes. Notice the test tubes? These are left overs from her Something Good to Eat Paper Pumpkin kit from last year. Full kits, refill kits and test tubes are available through my online store here.

She created her own labels that say spider venom, unicorn fur, toad pee, raven’s blood and zombie blood. Fun!

I’ll be handing out candy tonight. I plan to create some owloween treat bags like I shared in this post for my stamping neighbors. So unmask yourself so I can give you the chocolate!

Happy Halloween!
