Milwaukee OnStage and Swaps

Hi Stampers,

I was fortunate and blessed to be able to attend Milwaukee OnStage this past weekend. What a blast!!! First of all, it was to celebrate my upline, Dawn Olchefske's, $1 million dollars in sales achievement!! WOOHOO!!!! We are so proud and happy for her!!! When they blast the confetti cannons I thought she was going to jump off stage as she wasn't expecting them. Here she is with Shelli on stage:


If you ever get a chance to attend OnStage-DO IT!!! You meet so many people and learn different tips and tricks. It is SO WORTH IT!!!

Here is our group of DOStamper Stars:


Before OnStage I posted my two 3D swaps on Facebook. Well, needless to say and happy by the way, the demonstrators loved them. I thought I would post pics and directions here. Sadly, the Lots to Love Box Framelit Die is going to be retired. This is what I used to make the box. It is easy to make just time consuming (does that even make sense-LOL) Cut 2 of the Lots to Love Box Framelits. Take one and cut an oval shape out. The one that you cut the oval shape out of do NOT fold on the score line. Leave it upwards to create the arch. Adhere both together but cut the small tabs off the side of the one with the oval.


Stamp and die cut out the floral swag from the Hold to Hope stamp and die set. Adhere to the front of the box. Cut 8, 3/8" strips of Whisper White paper. Sponge the edges with Smokey Slate. Punch the end of each one with the Classic Label punch. Adhere to box around the oval. Trim the ends.  Punch flowers from the Tree Builder punch and add rhinestones.  Also stamp and die cut the butterfly from the Hold on to Hope set. Add the flower seeds and package.  This would make a great Mother's Day Gift to hand out at church, co-worker, friend, teacher..........




My 2nd 3D swap-Apple Pie Air Freshener:


For this project my inspiration came from Erica Cerwin. She recently made a card with an apple pie on it. Since I had just posted recently about my Lemon and Orange Air Fresheners--I thought I would try the apple pie. And, it worked!!!

Supplies needed:

4" square coasters, Cherry Cobbler cardstock, Tree Builder punch for the apples, Delicate Doilies, Tombow glue, 1/8" whisper white sheer ribbon, 1/4" Cherry Cobbler double stitched ribbon, Glue Dots, Basket weave Embossing Folder, Sponge, Crumb Cake Ink, Pretty Label punch, Stitched framelits, Circle Layering Framelits, Apron of Love stamp set and framelits, Big Shot, clear envelopes, stapler, Crop a Dile, Wood Textures DSP, Essential Oils or Warmer Diffusing Oil

Cut one of each from the coasters. One stitched circle and one scallop circle. Emboss the stitched circle with the Basket weave Embossing folder. Glue together with TomBow glue. Punch hole with Crop a Dile. Apply oil on the back of the scallop circle and let dry. After drying, sponge the embossed side with Crumb Cake ink. Thread the white sheer ribbon and tie a knot. Tie a bow around this with the Cherry Cobbler stitched ribbon. Punch 2 apples, take basic black marker to color stem and attach with glue dots to the front. To package as I did-you need the Apron of Love stamp set and framelits. Stamp the I heart baking on Wood Textures DSP. Cut out with the rolling pin framelit. Attach to the Cherry Cobbler Pretty Label punch. Fold a doilie in half over the clear envelope and staple.


Please subscribe to my blog to see these and other projects. I would LOVE to be your demonstrator!!!

I hope you are able to give these a try!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!



Lots to Love Box 3D Lemonade Stand

Hi Stampers,

First of all, don't forget Sale-A-Bration will be ending at the end of this month--which is at the end of next week!!! EEEKKK!!! That went by way too fast!!! Can I ask something of you? I am close to meeting my goal I set for Sale-A-Bration but not quite there yet. Would you help me out and go to my website and place your order before next week? I would truly appreciate it!!

Now, for today's blog post. Playing with the Lemon Zest stamp set and Lemon Builder punch last week, I came up with the cute idea of making my own Lemonade Stand out of the Lots to Love Box Die. All you need to do is cut 2 of the box framelits only take one of the die cuts and cut off the tabs so the top is open. Then, take a layering square framelit and cut out the opening. Stamp with the Hardwood stamp. Put box together and decorate. I put in 2 of the Crystal Light drink mixes in mine. Isn't this cute? I used the Colorful Seasons stamp to make the little lemons and limes banner.




All decorated and ready to give away!!!

I hope I was able to inspire you in some way. I hope you get to play!!!

Make sure you go to my website to place your order!!! Thank you so much!!!

St. Patrick's Day Hat Treat Holders

Hi Stampers,

I'm not Irish but who cares---I still like to celebrate and drink green beer on St. Patty's Day!! I thought these would be cute to give as gifts to friends, coworkers, classmates, etcetera. Plus, who does not like mint and chocolate? Uh...yes please.  I mean the bag of M&M's was in my cart before I knew it (no brainer) and they taste GREAT!!!



I did not have a small enough heart framelit/punch to make the 4 leaf clover. VOILA!!! Use my pansy punch!!!



I used some ribbon from my leftover Paper Pumpkin last month.


Did you notice there are only 3 that are candy filled? That's right. There was a hole in my bag. *wink*


Cut Emerald Envy 3 x 8-1/2". On the short side score one side at 1/2".

Cut Basic Black 1/2" x 8-1/2".

Cut Gold Foil with one of the smallest Layering Square framelits.

Cut one Emerald Envy circle scallop.

Cut one Emerald Envy stitched circle (for the inside of hat).

Punch out "4 leaf clover" with the Pansy punch.

Stamp and emboss with white embossing powder sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

I took my bone folder and burnished the large piece of Emerald Envy so it would form a circle.

Make several cuts from the short side to the score line.

Adhere Basic Black strip approx. 1/4" away from score line.

Adhere "gold buckle" on top of the Basic Black strip.

Adhere Fast Fuse to all of the tabs on the Emerald Envy large piece and to one end to form a circle and adhere together.

Place on scallop circle and press down with bone folder.

Adhere Fast Fuse to stitched circle and place inside hat.

Place treats in center. Tie on ribbon and tag.  Enjoy!!!

Lemon Builder Punch Mrs. Claus

Hi Stampers,

Yes, I'm still playing with my Lemon Builder punch. My creative side enjoys coming up with different ideas for punches/framelits instead of just what they were intended for. It's good to stretch your imagination. Just because it says it is a lemon doesn't necessarily mean its a lemon. Am I right?

Using Blushing Bride ink, I stamped and punched out a face. Before long, I came up with Mrs. Claus. Isn't she adorable? Please don't be worried, with the Halloween Witch and now with Mrs. Claus, I haven't lost it!!! Trust me----I'm just having fun!!!


What other ideas will you come up with? I hope you get a chance to play!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lemon Builder Punch Witch

Hi Stampers,

No need to adjust your screen---and no, I haven't lost my mind. I have had this idea since the fall and it didn't really come to fruition until I was playing with the Lemon Builder punch.  I wanted to come up with different ideas for using this punch other than fruit. I think I hit it out of the ballpark!! The great thing about this punch is Stampin' Up! let us know it will be carrying over in the new 2018-19 catty!!!! So, you have your first idea for a Halloween tag!!!


Lemon Lime Twist is a perfect color for the face!!!


The "nose" is actually one of the leafs from the Leaf Punch!!! I used a retired candy dot for the "wart" on her nose. I also used a retired spider web doillie from my stash.

So, whatcha think? Are you going to make some of these come this fall? I hope so!!!!

Stamparatus Has Arrived!!!

Hi Stampers,

As a Stampin' Up! demo, often times we get to order products prior to being released to the public. The Stamparatus was one of those perks for being a demo. We got to order this in December and I received it last week. These will be available in the 2018-2019 Annual catalog. These are great for lining up stamps to get the best image. I have had my project in my mind for awhile and with the Stamparatus it makes it SO MUCH easier!!!

We have several framelits, thinlits and such in our catalog. I am still focused on my Lemon Zest stamp set and punch. With the popularity of essential oils, I thought it would be fun to make some DIY air fresheners. My daughter gave me a stack of chipboard coasters a long time ago and I have been waiting for the "perfect" project. Well, this is it!!! I stamped approximately 3 times for each image. I used the Lemon and Mandarin essential oils. I bought mine at Walmart. They were located in the candle section for your reference. I loved how the Stitched circle framelit fit it perfectly to cut out!!  Please don't use your Lemon Builder punch as these are too thick and will end up breaking your punch. I also bought Pine essential oil and I want to make some Christmas trees with our Perfect Pines framelits at Christmas time!!!



This is how I used it on my Stamparatus after cutting it our with the Stitched circle framelit. I flipped it over and stamped on the back.




I just applied 3-4 drops of the oil on the backside on the image (if you don't want to stamp both side). I then used my 1/4 inch circle punch so I could insert the ribbon. I still had some 3 x 3 cellophane bags and placed them inside for packaging. Our regular clear envelopes also work great for these too.

I hope I was able to inspire you in some way and I hope you give this a try!!!

3D Lemon Builder Punch

Hi Stampers,

I found this cute little lemon shape filled hand cream at the dollar store. I thought why not pull out my Lemon Builder Punch and the Lemon Zest stamp set and give it some love!! I removed the inside container and measured it. I replaced it with Old Olive cardstock and Delightful Daisy DSP.  






The little fruit shaped hand creams came in apple, pear, lemon and peach. The lemon hand cream smells like the real thing!!!!

I hope you give this project a try!!!

3D Kisses Treat Holder

Hi Stampers,

I'm back with a cute little 3D kisses treat holder perfect for all of your Valentines. I have included the template for the Kisses shape for the front and back of the box. I used the sentiment from January 2018 Paper Pumpkin that says Sending Hugs and Kisses to You. I embossed this in white embossing powder and die cut with the heart shape thinlit. I also used the Seaside embossing folder to make the crinkles on the Silver Foil. WARNING: Be very careful as the Silver Foil will tear. Try using  only one of the embossing plates first and go from there as everyone's Big Shot is calibrated differently. I used the sentiments XOXO and LOVE from the kit and stamped in Real Red on vellum. I then dried it with my heat gun. I then waded this piece up to look like the paper from a real Hershey's kiss and attached with a glue dot. I filled the box with red crinkle paper and Hershey's Cherry kisses. WOW!!! Are those ever DELISH!!! (Ask me how I know) lol  The treat holder box is made using a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 6". Score along the 4-1/4" at 1 inch and 3-1/4". Score on the 6" side at 2-1/4" and 3-3/4". Burnish folds and cut the knotches. I used tear and tape to secure together and to secure to the Kiss template.

I hope you give this treat holder a try!!!
