Cue the Confetti!

Time to look at another upcoming offering from the Occasions Catalog, Picture Perfect Birthday.  Since I have a daughter-in-law who has a birthday next week, I thought I would play with some of my new "toys".  They won't be released until January 3, but as a demonstrator, I get to order early...yea!

This is a cute and very quick card, but I love the bright colors and the sequins.  

The card base is Thick Whisper White.  I added a 2" strip of Picture Perfect Party 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper on the left side of the card.  This paper is fabulous!  A Stampin' UP! artist designed it using real images (this one is strips of paper); it was photographed for one side of the DSP, and there are graphic images on the other.  Some of the photo images include candles, birthday hats and blowers, and balloons.  And all in fantastic, bright colors!

After adhering the DSP, I took one of the little stamps and stamped "plus signs" along the edge, using Peekaboo Peach ink.  And check out those sequins!  They are the Tutti-frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins...YES!  Adhesive backed!  Yippee!  And they come with all these colors (5 in all) in one pack!

I stamped "cue the confetti" with Melon Mambo ink and tied a knot of 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon in Lemon Lime Twist.  Done!  And so cute!

These products are coming your way soon...

More Treat Packaging

Yes, I have another day of Treat packaging for you:

How about some Christmas Poppers?

These are so easy to make, using the Envelope Punch Board.  And it's a great way to use up some of the Designer Series Paper you've been hoarding!  😁

Susan Itell has a great tutorial on how to make these; if you have questions about them, please send me a note and I'll put together a video.


After punching and adhering your popper, fill them with treats of your choice (I used Hershey's kisses).  You can decorate them however you want.

I used Oh What Fun for the "jolly" and added some little holly leaves/berries from the Carols of Christmas set.  

These are such fun to create and make a great stocking stuffer!  

Click on the picture of the products below and head to my on-line store to purchase materials to whip up some of these treats.

Free Shipping and Treat Packaging


Don't forget!  One day (today) only - FREE shipping all day long.  Any order, any price.  Great time to pick up something from your wish list!


Let me share another treat package I created (with the help of Tami White):

These Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are so cute!  Just adding some trees cut with the Card Front Builder Dies and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper make for an adorable treat.

Let's take a closer look:

Trees were added on all four sides after adhering a 1/2" strip of Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I only used Tear & Tape Adhesive on the bottom of the trees, so it doesn't show through to the inside of the box.

See that little deer?  Also included in the Card Front Builder dies is a framelit for the deer--I used Copper Foil sheets to cut him out.  And I wrapped the whole box with some Linen Thread.

Just add Hershey's Kisses in Christmas colors and you have a seasonal treat to make anyone happy!

Supplies can be purchased by clicking on the photos below; you'll be whisked to my on-line store.

Treat Packaging, Day 2

Do you have the Gift Bag Punch Board?  Look what I made:

These adorable little bags hold small treats for holiday gifting (mine has Lindor Truffle candies in them).  Each is created using the Gift Bag Punch Board using the "small" size with Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper.  They are easy to create, fun to decorate, and a happy surprise to receive.

Let's take a closer look:
After creating and filling the bag, I cut some of the houses from the Hometown Greetings Edgelits dies using Basic Black cardstock.  I just trimmed to fit the front of the bag and adhered with Tear and Tape adhesive and some Multipurpose Glue. 

Here's another using Whisper White houses.  The sentiment (Musical Season) was stamped and embossed using Silver Embossing powder. 

Want a more formal look?  Add a topper cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and a pretty bow, using the Bow Builder Punch for a "tuxedo" bag.  Here I embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing Powder.

Or how about a musical version?  Just cut the horn with Gold Foil and the Musical Instruments Framelits dies and clip with a Gold Library Clip.

Wouldn't you love to get one of these little treats?
