I know I've said this several times, but I just love making treat packets! I love that I can use my Stampin' Up! stamps, paper and ink to make a whole bunch of fun things.
I originally made these sweet treats as 3D swaps for convention. I was able to exchange a few with fellow stampers, but I had some leftover. I plan to give these as welcome gifts for my mom's stamping party in Minnesota next Monday. Who doesn't love chocolate?
These are created with Stampin' Up!'s envelope punch board (#133774). I cut a 4 x 4 piece from the Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper (#133692). I punched and scored the sheet at 1 3/4 inches on all four sides. I then folded three sides in to create a pouch, using Sticky Strip (#104294) to adhere the paper. (Can't have the candy popping out!) I then rounded the top tab with the punch board's corner rounding feature.
The little packets are embellished with Stampin' Up!'s coordinating accessories including the thick Strawberry Baker's Twine (#135637) and the Tangelo Twist satin ribbon (#133669), shown here. The stamp sets were the Label Love (clear #130622) (on the left) and Sumthin' Sumthin' (clear

It's my husband's birthday today, and he is a huge baseball fan! I broke out my new Chevron Punch to create this fun card (CASEd from Michelle Suit). Love it!
To create the black line (on which to place the laces), I found a dinner plate in the cupboard, turned it upside down, and traced the edge with one of the Project Life Journaling Markers. I applied the Real Red Chevrons and used the Essentials Piercing Pack to add a little detail.
I inked the birthday sentiment from Label Love with a Night of Navy Stampin' Write Marker and added a star (Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack) punched from Daffodil Delight.

Today I'm sharing a gift I received from Beth, one of my Kim's Paper Krafters team members, during our recent trip to Salt Lake City for Stampin' Up!'s annual convention. This is an altered notepad holder. Open the cover and inside there is a notepad on the right and a pocket on the left. She's used the Flower Shop stamp set with the coordinating punch and Feel Good stamp set. So cute and useful! Thanks for thinking of me Beth!
I just returned from my third Stampin' Up! convention (Inspire. Create. Share.) in Salt Lake City, Utah. This year, I shared the experience with three of my team (Kim's Paper Krafters) members. It was their first trip, and there was a lot to see and do with main stage presentations, prize giveaways, seminars, make-and-take stamping sessions, card swapping, and meeting new friends. We'd love to have you join us next year.
