Alternative Treats that Wow!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a new video for you and a new twist on a familiar product … Our Treat Bags.  I LOVE learning alternate ideas to use for our products!  It shows how versatile the product is and what a good investment we have made!

Here’s is a cute treat bag made with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Die & two of my designs:

Sit back and watch this short video as it shows you exactly how to create the “MINI” Mini treat bags!

This is a GREAT product to have in your stamping supplies – it’s fabulous for all occasions! You saw my Halloween bags, now image … Christmas! How about Birthdays, Baby Showers, Thank You Gifts & more!

What would you make with yours? I’d love to know! Lets see how many different ideas we can come up with 🙂

Thank you for taking time out of your day to spend with me!

Have an awesome day!




Death by Chocolate!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Death by Chocolate!?  If we have to go … what a way to go! I simply could not resist sharing another treat bad with you. I am again using the “Happy Haunting” Designer Series paper in yet another pattern… Plaid!! Plus it has a cute polka dot pattern on the other side so it worked perfect for my treat bag.


This treat bag went together … 1 – 2 – 3! Once the bag was secured with my Fast Fuse, I simply popped on one of our “Spider Web Doilies” … they are soooo cute!

I then grabbed my greeting from the “Sweet Hauntings” stamp set and with the use of my markers I decided I only wanted the words and not the frame around it… this way I could punch them out (which I did) with the 1-3/4″ circle punch and place it nicely into the center of my doily!

Last but definitely not least … I grabbed a Sharpie™ and colored my Rhinestones to match my designer paper and greeting.  I love it when everything matches … lol. Then used my dimensionals to adhere my greeting and give the bag even more dimension.


I can’t wait to stuff it with candy! And if you take a walk on Main Street in West Bend, Wisconsin you will see this cute little treat bag, along with some other stamped projects in the Candyman on Main’s Halloween window display. I should have that done by the end of the month!

I thank you for stopping by, it was so sweet of you!

Have a delightful day!






More Treat Bag Fun for You!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

As promised, today I have a treat bag with a window! Let’s have a little fun here today … I’m using the  Treat Bag Thinlit and Happy Haunting Designer paper. I’ve chosen a different pattern of paper today so I can show you that this is not just for Halloween.

For those of you who know me well, you know I love Star’s!! Here they are in full force, and to top it off … our thinlit die has a star in it too! I used it to cut out my window and make another star to bring in the orange color from the inside of the bag (reverse side of paper).


You simply place the star or other shape that you would like to use to create a window in the center of the largest die. If you want to fill your treat bag with smaller goodies, simply adhere a window sheet inside before assembling your treat bag. (Too hard to do once it’s all put together).

So … if you want to treat someone that “rocks” with a fun little gift, what would you give them? Why “POP ROCKS” of course.  So clever (or fun) … Pop Rocks + Star paper = Rock Star!


What a quick and simple way to brighten someones day! Hope you enjoyed!
