My Fun Creative Journey and creating with stamps...

  Hello all... I have something to share with all of you. The truth is I love all kinds of products and not just from one company. I've been going back and forth with Stampin'Up, Close to my Heart, Creative Memories, Shopping online and Magnolia Designs which is stencils, chalks, inks and home decor. My true passion is creating with paper, ink and stamps but because I kept trying different companies, I was never committed to one nor was I happy. Because of this I wasn't sharing things that I would make here on my blog due to being in violation of company rules or something. From now on I've decided to start sharing my projects and if you see something that inspires you, send me a message and I will be happy to tell you where it came from. I have decided to join Stampin'Up because they have all the things I like and the company I seem to keep going back too! Stamps, dies, stencils, mixed media, and cardmaking kits with instructions on how to complete or change it up

Day One of the Twelve Days of Christmas...Join me Won't You?

Hi Friends, Come along with me for some fun... I thought for the our first project we could do a   Ghiradelli chocolate treat holder! This little matchbook-style box holds two chocolate squares and is easy to put together. These are fun to give out to cashiers and just about anybody when your out and about doing your errands and it's sure to put a smile on their face. My Elf says "this is the season of jolly and Falalala"! You can use any color cardstock I used Blushing Bride because it matched my designer paper. I used products from Stampin'Up. Ghirardelli Chocolate Treat Holder Measurements and Details:   Blushing Bride Cardstock: 10” x 3”  On the long side, score at 3-1/4” 6-1/2” and 7-1/4”  Die cut a 2-1/2” x 1-1/8” Stitched Rectangle from the Blushing Bride cardstock, leaving a 1/4” strip of cardstock between the die cut rectangle and the edge.
