Curvy Keepsake Cuties …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Thought we’d have a little fun today seeing some fun and creative ways to use your Mini Curvy Keepsake die …

Let’s start are weekend with a little sparkle!!  These cute little treat keepers are so quick -n- easy to make and you can use any of our four glimmer papers, and don’t stop there … you can also use the beautiful foils we have too.

Another quick -n- easy way to create cute holiday treat boxes is using some of the beautiful designs in our Designer Series papers. We have many beautiful holiday papers right now …

This designer paper has retired but I find it’s a great way to use up my papers and put a smile on anyone’s face!  Who wouldn’t love getting such a cute little gift …


If you missed my latest creation with the Monster Bash Designer Series paper … These little cuties are to die for (well, not literally) your trick or treaters, co-workers or friends will be thrilled.



Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies 150644

Last but not least is a real treat keeper designed for the biggest gift giving time … Christmas.  Can I get a little “Ho … Ho… Ho”  Simple to create with just a few punches, my Santa Curvy Keepsake will even fit in the stocking.  Making it with cardstock, makes it a little more durable.

These would be so cute on the fireplace mantle … on a co-workers desk, where ever Santa would leave a little treat.  A nice chocolate truffle fits perfectly in the Mini Curvy Keepsake box!

Have fun creating these quick -n- easy little treat boxes for every occasion … they make perfect little gifts around the table for baby showers, brides maids, Thanksgiving … you get the picture.  I have a list of supplies below that I used to create these cuties.

Thank you for joining me this “rainy” Friday … just glad it’s not snow!

Have a great weekend ~

Here is a supply list for some of the items shown above … 


Throwback Thursday … Country Home

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today is Thursday … a throwback Thursday but I’d like to think it’s a “thankful” Thursday. I’d like to share some of my favorite cards from the Country Home stamp set. This is a beautiful set for the time of year however I believe that you can find a friend that would fall in love with this at any time of year.

I made this card for a friend who was brought up on a farm so that milk can brings back memories for both of us … for her, her parents house, for me … visiting my grandpa and grandma on their farm.  The stunning Tin Tile Embossing folder in combination with the Country Home stamp set really warms your heart.

This warm little hello is another one of my favorites of the Country Home Stamp set.  I used to work in a Flower Shop so I was immediately smitten with the dried flower arrangement that I could tuck so neatly into this pitcher … kind of reminds me of my grandma, she had one just like it ♥ 

Sometimes it’s just nice to sit back and reflect on days gone by … especially when you can enjoy that moment with a friend or family.  I hope you enjoy your day today.

Thank you for joining me today …



A Rosy Celebration …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared with you the announcement that the Everything is Rosy has been added to the Clearance Rack, along with a parade of cards to show what you can do with this product medley.  Today I’m going to share some of the cards I created.   I also have a fun announcement for you today … check out the video!!

On my first card, we used the Rose Glimmer Paint to stamp the back ground.  It reminded me of old fashioned wall paper and the glimmer added the perfect twinkle.

The rose gold elements that are include in the medley make creating cards easy, but they look like you’ve spent a lot of time on your card.  I’m sharing the next one in two angles so you can see how beautifully the Rose Gold goes with the Night of Navy.

I love the foils that are include with this medley and “everything” coordinates so it takes the guess work out of your creating … the hard part is picking which pattern you want to use, they are all so pretty.  This card may be simple but I think it’s my favorite.

The next card shows how you can tame down a pattern that you might otherwise think is a bit loud.  Some love it, not my first pick but once I got my card together … I loved it!!

Do you agree? Turned out pretty cool … I cut the frame out using the rectangle framelits which really highlighted the greeting. The pretty floral adhesive die cuts add the finishing touch to the card.  I absolutely fell in love with this card when it was completed.

I hope you enjoyed the cards … let me know if you have any questions with this product medley.

NOW … onto the announcement!!

Our newly designed Paper Trimmer is lightweight, portable, and perfect for making stable and straight cuts!  There is not a release date “to date” … they are making sure they have enough inventory to make everyone happy.  I don’t predict a long wait … I’m hoping next month (but don’t hold me to that).

Thank you so much for coming back to check out my cards!!

Hope you have a beautiful day ~

Reflections of World Card Making Day …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I just want to take this time to thank all of you that stopped by my Stampin’ Escape Facebook page yesterday to celebrate World Card Making Day.

We had some fun with games, special offers and more … So I’d like to thank those who participated as well …

I want to thank everyone who played the “You are My Sunshine” game … making words out of the letters from that phrase.

Each winner will receive a package of the new holiday rhinestones …

I’d like to thank Andrea Morris for booking an October Stampin’ party … with such, she won FREE SHIPPING on her entire order! Now that is a nice savings …

I also want to thank Kris Harmsen for participating in the “Pick a Anchor” game and winning FREE Glimmer Paper along with her order….

Many participated in the “Guess How Many Kisses” Game … and Dawn Chapman came up victorious with only 3 kisses away from the correct answer.

And one of the first we played but last to be revealed was a picture and getting to know me a little better. From the picture, they were supposed to pick four things about me.  These were my answers …


We had a lot of fun and I think we will have to do this on a smaller scale but more often.  Hope you can join us next time, if you didn’t to join us yesterday.

Thank you for checking in today, I’ll be back tomorrow with my Simply Sunday post.

Have a wonderful day.
