I am featuring a guest artist today. She is my dear friend, Jennifer Edwards. This was my Christmas treat from her and with her permission I am sharing it with all of you. She simply stamped this cute treat bag with The Angel Company’s Snowman Natavity Stamp Set using Starry Night Palette ink, punched 2 holes near the top and added a ribbon. Then she filled them with Oreo Bon Bons and gave as Christmas treats. The Oreo Bon Bons she makes are so delicious. I think I’ll make some tonight. Check my Facebook page for the recipe.
Here is a small sneak peak at one of the four projects we will be doing at this month’s stamp camp.
I covered 2 miniatures candy bars with scrapbook paper from The Angel Company’s Gentle Beginnings Collection. I then tied a piece of embroidery floss around them and placed them in a small cello bag. I made the topper using white cardstock and a piece of paper from the same paper collection. I stamped “Sweets for my sweet” and the candy pieces from The Angel Company Stamp Set Little Cupcake on white cardstock and colored them with colored pencils. I adhered the candy pieces with Pop Dots to give them dimension.
It is a super easy project. You won’t want to miss out on all the fun next Tuesday, April 14th.
Fall is officially here!!! Yahoo!! I love it… the “not too warm” days and the cool nights. I always want to kick back and stamp this time of year. Ok, so I always want to kick back and stamp… any time of year, but I specially love to stamp and scrapbook it in the fall. I thought I’d kick off the new season with a new website design. I hope you like the new colors and layout. Leave a comment to let me know what you think.
I’ve been preparing projects for my Halloween/Fall stamp camp next week so I’ve been designing various Halloween treat containers. I love this one. It is a little metal tin from The Angel Company. I filled it with candy corn and wrapped it with ribbon. I used a pumpkin sticker from my local discount store to make the tag and a current GWP (Gift With Purchase) stamp from The Angel Company to make the “Halloween” tag. It was super easy. It took all of 10 minutes to make. The tin is 2-1/2 x 1 inches and holds about 2 handfuls of candy. Perfect treat for your little trick-o-treater… or big trick-o-treater. They come in a pack of 4 for $5.95… very reasonable. Click on my TAC website (www.kandy.ismyangel.net) and pick up a few. They would also be great to use for little Christmas gifts for teachers, class parties, co-workers… the list is endless.
Until next time, Keep Stamping!
The Mount Comfort Methodist Church Shop and Crop went very well and was tons of fun!! I met so many new friends. I wanted to unveil the assembled make-n-take I brought to share. I visioned it as a lovely little bookmark, but several of my new friends gave plenty of other uses for it… such as a gift tag, a scrapbook page accent, or the top layer of a greeting card.
There were several vendors there with make-n-take projects, but I ended up only having time to do 2 of them. This cute little autumn treat bag was offered by Darcy Cooper, a Breezy Designsconsultant. I had not heard of them before this shop and crop. She had nice scrapbooking kits and paper crafting supplies and was a great gal to talk with. She had tons of great ideas.
This next one was offered by a really nice gal named Beth Barnett who is a consultant for My Creative Life. This company was also new to me. They also offer really neat scrapbooking and paper crafting supplies.
I really enjoyed myself. And, best of all, it was for a great cause.
