We Whisk You a Merry Christmas

Posted by creativemindsstampalike on December 21, 2008

whisksHey everyone!!

Guess you all are getting ready for Christmas, doing last minute shopping and gift making. 

I just had to share this absolutely CUTE project my BFF Kim did for her co-workers.  She just took a wire wisk, filled it with goodies, attached ribbon and a tag.  Now how cute is that?!?!?       I actually thought about making a few to have on hand in case an unexpected visitor drops by.  And you could adapt it to any occassion.

So, I will say:  We “whisk” you a Merry Christmas :)

Stampin’ Up™ Holiday Ornaments

Posted by creativemindsstampalike on November 13, 2008

I finally received my Designer Series Paper Ornaments Star Bright!!!  These are so fun to make and are so pretty.  Each kit comes 12 sheets of DSP (double sided paper) that is die cut and prescored, 10 yards of silver elastic cord, and 12 Styled Silver Brads.  This enough pieces to create 54 stars, 6 paper strip globes, and 5 to 25 paper-circle globes.  This is what I have done all day.  I just love them.

This is the Stampin’ Up™ Star Bright paper.  I added ribbon from my own stash, and the snowflakes were punched with a punch from the Martha Stewart line, which was given to me by my BFF Kim 🙂  Hope you  enjoy the ornaments and if you want to order the kit to make your own visit my Stampin’ Up™ website.

Good Monday Morning!!!  Sorry we didn’t post over the weekend.  Last week was a busy week.  The 7th graders got to march at Friday night’s football game.  So my son, Jacob, and Michele’s daughter, Allie, were so excited.  They had a blast, but it was very nerve racking for us parents.  But we did get a little time to craft Friday morning.  The paper baskets we made for a swap I’m doing on  It gave us a chance to use the Baskets & Blooms Bigz XL Die (113484) from Stampin’ Up (check out my Stampin’ Up page on my blog to order your own Big Shot).  They turned out so cute!!!!  I think the red and white one with brown reminds me of a reindeer.  The spiders are made with a peppermint patty in the middle.  I think they are so adorable.  I decided I’m going to tie them on the little tins that I made for Caleb’s teachers and then I’m gong to make one for each of the kids in his Kindergarten class.   I just took the small tins and tied ribbon on them, filled them with the fall flavors of Hershey Kisses, included the pens I made (pictured on our blog last week) and tied the spider on handle……..ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE!!!   Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!!!   Wendy


Supplies for Baskets:  Baskets & Blooms Bigz XL Die (SU 113484), very Christmas Paper (or any paper design), Ribbon, Terrifically Tacky Tape, crimped strips of paper to stuff in them, and fill with goodies.

Supplies for Spiders: Black & Orange Cardstock, Scallop Circle Punch (SU 109043), Photo Corners Punch (SU 109042), Peppermint Patties, Googly eyes, double sided tape, silver cord

Michele’s Wrap Ups

Posted by creativemindsstampalike on October 17, 2008

1- toliet paper roll
1- sheet 12×12 paper,cut to 9×12 (use paper to match your party theme) ( I used Holiday DP from a stack pad from HL) 
2- 12 inch long pieces of ribbon (I used Christmas Ribbon from HL)
1- 2×3 1/2 piece of solid color paper to match DP stamped with themed stamp (I used Christmas tree stamp from SU Tag Time retired)
Ink Pad to match color scheme
4- pop dots
Wrap tp roll with DP and tape shut.  Gather one end together and tie with one piece of ribbon.  Stuff your roll with your treats and gather opposite end and tie with other piece of ribbon.  Take your 2×31/2 piece of solid paper scallop or corner round the edges and stamp with themed stamp.  Place 4 pop dots on back of solid paper and place in center of roll.  Enjoy!!!
* I stuffed my rolls with DumDum suckers & Smarties… you could use any type of small candy, toy, or prize to go in the roll.
These could be used at a childs birthday party, Christmas party or a name plate at a Christmas dinner.
