Welcome to my Corner of the World

Every year I like to do craft fairs making items that are just perfect for stocking stuffers, appreciation gifts for hostess’s, coworkers, teachers or small table gifts. Everyone love to receive a ‘little something’ and I just love to give a ‘little something’ !

Decorated Hand Sanitizer Gift Box – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love little gifts, both giving and receiving them is a thrill! – just a little something wrapped up prettily, given unexpectedly or placed on a holiday or celebration table – just lovely.

When Stampin’ UP! 2020 Aug/December Mini Catalog came out earlier this year it had the Little Treat Dies, perfect for creating and wrapping a little gift. I experimented and found I could get a mini hand sanitizer in one or a couple of those famous chocolate squares! I am sure there are lots of other goodies out there that would fit in as well.

A Little Treat – Decorated Ghirardelli Square Video Tutorial

I am so grateful for my lovely customers who shop with me for their Stampin’ Up Supplies.  I try to give a little gift each month and for April I  chose to decorate some Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares.

These are so quick and easy to make, you can get 6 out of a single sheet of card and 36 pieces of DSP from a 12 x 12 sheet.  The colors I chose to use are directly from the Happiness Blooms DSP and the greeting from the A Good Day Stamp Set (which is about to retire so get your order in as soon as you can so as not to miss out (there is a link below)

Christmas Cracker – Lindor Treat Box

I have one more Christmas themed treat box to share before the BIG Day.  As many of you may know I am an ex-pat Brit living in North Texas for a little over 16 years.

One of the Christmas traditions in the UK is to have Christmas Crackers on the table.  In our family we used to pull them after we had eaten the main course and before we tucked into the dessert of Christmas Pudding and Mince Pies with either brandy butter or whipped cream.

Season of Cheer Ferrero Treat Box ~ Video Tutorial

I have said on many occasions that I love to make 3D items and what can be better than a 3D with chocolate!  I chose to make them in classic Black and White then used the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper which allowed me to bring in some gold and silver.

This would be perfect for your Christmas tablescape but change up the colors and you can have a treat holder for birthdays, wedding, showers, baby – just about any celebration you can think of. Continue reading

Hershey’s Nuggets…….. mmmmm!

I love to take candy (sweets) and make them into something a little bit special.  I have been decorating Hershey’s Nuggets for several years now – giving them as thank you’s and selling them at craft fairs in the run up to Christmas.  They are very quick and easy to do, taking just a few supplies……. and you can use them for just about any occasion you can think of.  The ones I am sharing today were for a July 4th dinner we were invited to a couple of weeks ago.

Decorated Votive Candle with matching gift bag with video!

I have a small but delightful team of ladies who are part of the Stampin’ Up! family with me.  I wanted to make them a small thank you gift for Christmas using products from Stampin’ Up.

I am a little late in posting this and the video as Christmas is now 3 weeks behind us – but the idea can be used for any occasion – in fact I think they would make very nice shower favors – they can be made in the party’s color scheme.

Envelope Punch Board ~ Chocolate Thank you with Video

I try to make something as a little thank you for those ladies who shop with me each month.  It might be a card but this month I decided it was time for a  little chocolate.  I used the Ghiradelli chocolate squares, I think this is the 3rd or 4th projects I have used these, but the variety of flavors and the taste of the chocolate is sooooooo good that I think it deserves more than one visit!
