Snowman Soup

I had a sick child this week so no time to create :( I put this lil treat holder together this morning. Lyn B. is hosting the 3D Tuesday Challenge over at PCP this week and shared this FABBY mug-shaped template. I have used the snowman soup poem to make goodie bags in the past, but this just seemed the perfect packaging! Thanks for visiting :)


1 packet cocoa mix
hershey kiss
small candy cane
mini marshmallows

The poem reads:

"Was told you've been real good this year
Always glad to hear it
With freezing weather drawing near
You'll need to warm the spirit
So here's a little Snowman Soup
Complete with stirring stick
Just add hot water, sip it slow
It's sure to do the trick!"

Unscripted Sketches # 81

LOVE LOVE LOVE the sketch at Unscripted Sketches this week, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I was gonna make a scrapbook page.

I took so many photos of Emmalee this Halloween and I didn't want to leave any out, so I decided to make a mini album. I bought this chipboard All-Sorts album from CTMH a while back and thought it would be perfect. I grabbed my Enchanted Level 2 papers, also CTMH, and went to work.

Notice the inverted scallop Nestie mat around the is my very first time using them. I was the lucky winner of Alanna's candy during the blog hop last month, and this was one of my goodies :) I will def be buying more of these!

Finally, I embellished with ribbon, twine, paper flowers, buttons, brads, and a metal tag. This is the cover of the album...I will post again when I complete the other pages.

Thanks for looking and taking the time to leave me lovely comments...they are always appreciated!

Unscripted Sketches #80

Here is my take on this week's sketch at Unscripted Sketches. The papers are from a Making Memories stack and the SS is called Celebrate in Style (SU!) LOVE that octopus with all the yummy handbags!!! I have been wanting to reconnect with a dear friend...we just kinda lost touch last year and I decided to send a card to tell her I've been thinking of her and want to get together. I was also inspired by challenge #254 at 365 Cards to think of a wish and create a card to express that wish. I'm wishing for friendship :)

CAS Lesson 19

The lesson this week was how to make a simple gift card holder. This only uses a 4" x 11" piece of double sided PP and took about 10 minutes to put together. LOVE it! If you want to make one (or 2 or 3) of your own, join the CAS Card Group over at Paper Craft Planet. Lyn has a terrific new idea/card to share every week.

'Tis the Season

I used this week's sketch from The Beary Scrap and the photo @ The Shabby Tea Room as inspiration for this card. I am usually very traditional and never do anything but red & green for Christmas, but I decided to step outside my comfort zone (just a bit) and try something different. I chose the papers to compliment the blue and red in "Hollie's" outfit. The digital stamp is a freebie over at Sj's Little Musings. I discovered her blog last week and have been enjoying using her adorable images on my projects.

I mentioned in an earlier post that I am house & dog sitting at my Mom's all week and I have to say I've had the best time in her scrapbook studio. It's like having a whole store with new things to discover & play with! You know, I think that fabby ribbon you see on my card may "accidentally" find it's way into my suitcase LOL
