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!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!



DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #272-Tutti Fruitti



Hi Stampers,

Today's Thursday challenge is a color my world challenge and with that, the colors are all included in the Tutti Fruitti DSP. The prints in the DSP stack are just adorable and very colorful!!! For this week's card, I let the DSP do the talking. Didn't overthink it and just went with it. The only stamping on it is for the sentiment which comes from the Mixed Drinks stamp set.






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!!!

Thanks for stopping!!


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #271-Lemon Builder Punch


Hi Stampers,

We have my fav this week---a sketch pad challenge!!! I have NEVER had a card come together so fast. I was even giddy about it!! Usually what I attempt to do and finish what I do, are 2 different things. If only all my cards were like this!!!

As you can see, I am showing some love to my Lemon Builder Punch and Lemon Zest stamp set. Even though Sale-A-Bration is going on, there are many stamp sets I haven't even used in my stash!!! I did use the fun Tutti Fruitti DSP for this card. The prints in this set are so bright and colorful and YUMMY!!!






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!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #267-Birthday Wit


Well, welcome back to me!!! I didn't post at all the whole month of January!!! Unfortunately, time does not stand still. I needed a rest to just breathe after the holidays. So lets fast forward to this week's DOStamper Stars challenge---sketch pad #267.

This sketch is great, it came together very fast for me as I needed a card for our eldest grandson's birthday. He is turning 18!!!! I'm just completely speechless. I thought our children grew up fast. Add the grandchildren and POUF!!!! Connor has turned into an amazing, loving, kindhearted young man and we couldn't be any prouder. He is on the wrestling team and loves it. So, yes, I did cheat because I used my Cricut. Does it count though I used the medal from the World's Best Trophy set and the sentiment from the Birthday Wit stamp set?


The Pacific Point ribbon trim is perfect for this card!!!
