DSP Fond Farewell ~ Thank You’s

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I am always looking for inspiration and sometimes that comes from fellow demonstrators!  Due to one thing and another I was not able to send my usual  ‘Thank You’ to my March customers who shopped for their Stampin’ UP! goodies with me.  So when it came to April I knew  I needed to do a something special for them and my April customers.  I found this really great ‘twisted’ packet from Sam Donald so made a bunch of them from several of the soon to be retiring designer series papers.

Easter Treat Basket ~ with Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I have a little treat basket to share today – I had planned it to be one of the projects for my monthly card class this week but I cancelled it due to the social distancing we are all currently practicing because of the  Corona virus pandemic.

A Little Treat – Decorated Ghirardelli Square Video Tutorial

Gift Wrapped Stickynote Page Flags ~ Video

I bet the title of this post threw you  a little, but it was hard to find something that was descriptive!  At the beginning of June I held my launch party for the 2018 – 2019 annual catalog.  I have new product for my dear customers to ooo and aahh over as well as some make and takes but I also like to make a little gift for each as a thank you for coming as well as shopping with me over the year!

This year I found some packets of sticky-note page flags which seemed to me to be absolutely perfect for marking up their new catalog with the goodies that caught their eye!

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
