One more treat...

Happy Monday!! Did you all have a good weekend? It sure went by fast!! So to start off the week, how about a brand new challenge from Lollipop Crafts?? This time we want you to make Anything But a Card with a Halloween theme. It's right around the corner, so what's better than a little treat box...

In fact, this one doubled as a birthday card for a friend. The little drawer holds a few mini candy bars and a gift card. Here's another view...
The size of the box only is 4x3, and very simple to make. I've never done a tutorial before, but if you all are interested, I can give it a shot! Just leave me a comment if you would like to see how this was made.

Check out what my LC team mates have made to share. You'll have two weeks to play along for a fabulous prize. Come back on Wednesday to see who our sponsor is for this challenge!

Stamps - Sweet November Pumpkin Fun set; Amy R Birthday Sentiments; Studio G Alphabet stamp set
Copic colors, Memento Ink, Colorbox Chalk, MMBI Autumn Layers paper pad; Recollection Kraft and green cardstock. MayArts brown ribbon, Twinery Mandarin; misc buttons.

Xmas Gift Card Holder

Hello all and happy Wednesday! Today is start of a new challenge at All That Scraps... everyone's favorite... ANYTHING GOES!!

I guess you can say I'm in the holiday mood lately. This time I made a gift card holder...
with Yuki from Sister Stamp. The box die and the little tag are both from PTI, and the border punch from MS. Finally get a chance to play along the Yumi & Fumi Handmade current challenge, to have no patterned paper! That had me stumped for awhile, but then I thought of... embossing! So I gave it another try, and this time it turned out better... a little?  hehee! I used a sparkle embossing powder on the green cardstock. The picture doesn't show it too well, but it's there! lol!

here's another view...

So now stop by All That Scraps Challenge blog to see what the team has to share! You have two weeks to play along for your chance to win 5 CC Design digis!!

Dear Hubby...

Happy Monday! Today I'm celebrating a special day with my hubby... it's our anniversary! He surprised me with a dozen red roses this morning... that he put together after I went to sleep last night. But then he had to work today, so we will go out for a nice dinner another night! I baked him some yummy banana bread and made this card...
It was hard to find a image that would fit a guy and for an anniversay, but I came across this retired TGF stamp set and it came with a perfect sentiment, "hoo loves you"? and the inside says "me!" (sorry forgot to take a pic of it) Finally I was willing to use some of the SEI Moonrise paper that I've had for the lonnnngest time!
added alot of dimensions... can you tell?

Well, hope he likes it and the bread!
my dear... I love you!

card supplies:
Image-TGF Hoo Loves You (retired); paper-SEI Moonrise, DCWV cardstock; Spellbinders - circle, tear drop circles; Sizzix-Flourish diecut; Copics; Memento Tuxedo Black; Colorbox Chalk browns; white gel pen; misc flowers

More treats...

Happy Wednesday!! It's All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge reminder today, and I'm still in the mood for more Halloween treats!
Using two images from Sweet November Pumpkin Fun set (click here to see the third),  I made some real simple, quick and easy treat holders. But as you can see, it wasn't that easy for me on the embossing! LOL! It didn't turn out too clean, but used them anyways cause they are too cute to throw out! Guess I need more practice on embossing! and maybe watch a quick "how-to" video would help! hahaa! 

here's a pic of the back and little peek from the side...

This little candy tote was pretty easy to make. Just a few pieces of scrap paper, punch two sets of holes (or you can use eyelets), and add a piece of twine. The candy can slip in and out pretty easily, so add a small glue dot to secure it.

Take a moment to visit the ATS Challenge blog to see more inspiration from the team, and if you haven't checked out the new October release from ATS! and you still have until Oct. 9th to play along our "Anything Goes" Challenge!!

Have a wonderful week! ;D
