A little Treat for someone so sweet!

I have some of the best customers! But what makes my customers so special is that many of them are also my friends! I wanted to do something special for them since it is Christmas time!
So, I baked some cookies and packaged them up and made some cute little toppers for them.
I think they add just a little bit of fun to a bag of cookies!

I hope my customers/friends know how much they mean to me! With out them, I wouldn't be doing what I am doing! I love getting together with them and hopefully teaching them some new and fun things!
Stamping is constantly changing and sometimes, I even learn a thing or two from my customers! They are all so talented and special! I look forward to many more years of service to them!

Merry Christmas Friends!

Until next time,

Little Ghirardelli gift holders

Aren't these little treat holders just the cutest! Hopefully none of my friends that I am going to dinner with on Tuesday evening will see this blog posting. lol These are little gifts that I made for them for our gift exchange. They hold 2 Ghirardelli chocolates. Yum!

My sister needed a gift card holder so I made some for her as well. These were made using the little envelope dye that Stampin' Up! Sells for the big shot. All I did was lay a credit card on it and scored new lines for the folds on the sides. and then I put two of them together. How easy!

I used some scrap designer series paper that I had left over from last weekends Stamp till you cramp to decorate the front and used the medium oval punch to make a little handle.
Remember stampers, never throw those scraps out! you never know when it will come in handy!

I finished it up with some Old Olive ribbon... note to self, gotta get some more of that! Don't you just LOVE Stampin' Up! Ribbon! I know I do!

Until next time stampers,

Stamp Till You Cramp!

Well, It was time for a Christmas Stamp till you cramp and that is exactly what happened!
Do these three gals look happy? Well of course they do! And why? you might ask.... well because they are holding up their first ever completed cards! That's right! I had three stampin newbies at my stamp till you cramp! And they all did wonderful! Way to go girls!

More smiling faces! Rose, Cheryl and Yulia join me for a quick picture and then it was right back to work for them! I am a task master I tell you! No time for fun and games at my events! Just kidding... look at those smiles! Beautiful inside and out!

A quick lunch break! Some home made veggie soup was just what the stamping doctor ordered. Looks like some pretty serious conversation doesn't it?!

Now, how did you do that again? Wendy, Priscilla, Kim and Crickett sure are looking at something pretty intensely!

Ahhhhh, my girls Deidre and Michelle! Deirdre brought me a pair of those antlers with bells on... every time I talked or moved my head I could hear ringing in my ears. I took the antlers off, but I could still hear the ringing.... hmmmmm lol

Edwina's turn to show everyone a little something. As you can see, Donna is paying close attention. NOT! LOL

Lucille and Rhonda, these two were hard at work and barely came up for air!

Kim and Crickett studying those directions and doing an excellent job! You would never know that they are new stampers!

I hope everyone had as much fun at the stamp till you cramp as I did! I'm looking forward to the next one! I hope you are too!
Until next time,

Christmas card with a treat!

I have seen so many of these treat cards on the Internet lately that I thought, I have just got to try one for myself. All the cards that I have seen so far have had the treat portion on the left but I thought it would be cool to make it with the treat portion on the right. The card was very easy to make.. actually easier than I thought it would be!
This is one card that I for one would love to get.. I mean, who doesn't love a little chocolate with their cards!
Until next time,
