 Have you heard? This week (April 21st - April 25th) you can get FREE shipping on your Stampin' Up! order!! There is no minimum to purchase a little or a lot! Whatever works for you and your budget :D

Plus the retired list of stamps and accessories is out (you can see it HERE). The retired products are available through June 4th or while supplies last. Something new this year is that goes for stamps as well...once they are gone they are gone! So hurry and get your favorites now before it's too late!

I found inspiration for this card over on Pinterest. I loved how easy it was to create and that's it only uses one color (besides black). How cool would it be to have a set of these cards - one in each of the in colors...think Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush (which is pictured above). By putting "Pssst..." on the front it leaves the inside for many different options like birthday, thinking of you, your awesome, thank you, etc. I'm going to make them to give as gifts.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies Used: Strawberry Slush ink & cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Basic Black cardstock, Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad, Happy Watercolor Stamp Set. You can purchase these items and more at my site, HERE.

Easter Treat Boxes

Sorry I've been MIA again - I have been so sick this year and I just couldn't seem to get over the infection. I finally went to an ENT on Thursday and found out that my sinus cavities below my eyes are compacted with junk. So I am now on 3 weeks of antibiotics and steroids. I go back in a month to see if we have finally cleared this crap up! At least I'm starting to feel somewhat like my old self. I have a little more energy (I'm sure it's due to the steroids, lol) which is a good thing. I am very behind on many many things so hoping I catch up soon. Here's to doing stuff one day at a time, right?!

So for stamp club in March we made these cute Easter Treat Boxes using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. There are so many wonderful things being made with that punch. It's a WONDERFUL investment that's for sure!

I then had to make some for an event I participated in. I had some with jelly beans in them and others with M&M's in them. I made like 10 and one lady purchased them all. I guess I should have made more, lol!

I used Eggstra Spectacular stamp set and Stampin' Write Markers to color in the images. It's such a cute fun set!

Of course I like variety so I made them using the Sweet Sorbet paper (which was a special during Sale-A-Bration) and matching cardstocks. I used Chevron Ribbon to tie the boxes shut with a little Whisper White Baker's Twine.

You can purchase supplies for this and other Stampin' Up! Products at my site here. Thanks so much for stopping by!
