Who knew that getting up at 6am could make a stampin’ girl just whipped. The kids and I got up early Saturday to do my church Craft show. The kids were really excited about the day until they figured out we would be there for 6 hours. Instantly their faces went a little cold. "Say What, Mom?" They helped me set up and our day started…..
S-L-O-W-L-Y! Honestly, it ended that way too. I ended up leaving slightly earlier than planned because the kids were just DONE! I give them credit for putting up with me that long.
Anyways, I wanted to follow up on the tins I spoke about yesterday! These tins HERE can be found at www.specialtybottle.com. Thanks to so many of you that helped me out with those. My tin pimp Peggy found them again and once she mentioned the name I remembered! I remember having a camp planned with them last year and they were backordered for 3 months. I’m sure that was because of a demonstrator frenzy with them. LOL! They are great tins and you can fit 12 nuggets inside them. If you jazz up those nuggets, they are SUPER cute. Oh and get this…. the other day I was at Costco. I found the best chocolate to wrap. Cheap-o too. It is Kirkland’s Chocolate and the greatest part is they remind me of Choxie’s that you find at Target. Those little things are expensive, but look so cute wrapped in designer paper. Okay, nuf about chocolate and wrapping it.
The other day I was strolling through Target once again. I found these Blackberry candy canes packaged pretty. I took the pretty packaging off and made my own. The candy canes are individually wrapped so I stuffed them into a Medium Cello bag. I doubled the wrapping because the canes are skinny. This idea came directly from the Holiday Mini Catalog!
I used quite a few products on this: Top Note Die Cut, Tasty Sweet stamp set, All Holidays stamp set, Frames & Flourishes stamp set, Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon and that fun rope in the Mini Catalog. Oh, I love it. Of course I used a lot of Kraft cardstock. I know, can’t get away from it. Just love it. I also really like that Tasty Sweet stamp set. Great Halloween images in that set.
One last Topper that I made using the Chills & Thrills Rub On’s:
