And now for my project!
Now before you start saying.. THIS DOESNT LOOK LIKE CHRISTMAS to me... well... you need to look a little more into my project. 
I created Ralphie from "A Christmas Story" - one of our families favorite movie to watch on December 25 (heck you can't miss it when it plays 24 hours all day!!)
I wanted to take an iconic scene from that movie..and well... The Bunny Suit (Nightmare) just spoke to me!
Since the suit was sooo PINK, I just did not scream Christmas to me for my project, so I opted to take a Christmas icon moment and turn it into NON Traditional Christmas project.... let's be honest.. its Easter/Spring!

I cut my Ralphie out of sime PaperTrey Ink dotted paper.  Look at the bunny slippers!
I added him to an older treat box from Jaded Blossom (the 2 X 2 X 3 boxes would work awesome here too)
I wrapped some fun Plaid Washi tape around the edges, topped with some yummy Maya Road Twine.
I used the Mini Tag Dies with a sentiments from Easters Treats 2.  I thought it was the perfect sentiment to add some comical relief, as if you have ever seen the movie, you know how much Ralphie HATES this bunny suit!
Inside I added some Strawberry Wafer cookies!

Now remember the Ralphie cut is free during this blog hop duration ONLY!



Don't Fret...you can't get lost on this hop with our fool proof line up below!!

And now my PROJECT!!
I decided to do Donald Duck. This image just cracked me up...because the turkey is sitting on his head making the headdress... I just find that amusing...and sooo Donald is looking for the Turkey....(hence Turkey Crossing on the sign).
I love this new treat box.. it holds (and was designed) to hold a regular Starburst...not the SHARE size..just the regular normal one!  I love it!

Here is Donald (free file today only) on the new SB Platform box!
You can decorate this in so many fun and creative ways!
I also used Harvest Signs, Fall Dies and Let's Talk Turkey,and spring dies (grass)- all from Jaded Blossom!
I added on some Doodlebug Sprinkles and Kraft twine from my stash!
Here is how the Starburst slides in the box part area of the platform.

Here is a nice close up of the ADORABLE Turkey!!

Harumff! Its Gruffin Time!!



Meet Gruffin!
He will be available on FRIDAY....
I added a bridge (see his story below)...on a treat tag and added that to a gusset bag filled with some matching colorful Sixlets!


The gruffest of Squarey Trolls, Gruffin is a grumpy facade who is known for hiding happy monsters and happy feelings under Buffaloney Bridge. There are ways to get through to him, but there is no tried and true method. He’s unpredictable. Tell him a joke he’s heard before, and he might snap you in two. Best to avoid him all together, but if you do run into him (or feel the urge to make him release a happy monster) be prepared for an earth-rattling, “Harumff!!!”

And now for my project!
Now dont go to crazy at what Im about to say.....
I am NOT a huge fan of Nightmare Before Christmas!  I have NEVER sat through the whole thing start to finish.... soooo I just looked at images online and found that at some point Jack gets covered in snow and looks like a snowman. So THAT is where this projects stems from ha ha..
I embossed the body parts and then I took some black twine and stitched his mouth lines. I LOVE texture afterall, so I needed to do something to make him not so plain!
I added him on the NEW file, Fold Over Treat Holder, which holds the 3 X 4 treat bags perfectly.
I used the icicle border from Winter Dies to edge of the top of the holder , and then stamped  a sentiment from Christmas Signs on the Fall Dies (sign board) 
I wanted a nice pop of color to offset all the purple, so that is where the green hat and the pink twine come into play!
oh...and I filled my treat with Yogurt Raisins.. sooo YUMMY....yea, I polished off the bag once the picture was taken and edited! lol

Happy Birthday Cupcake! Its a Beary Sweet Day for you!

Hi everyone...
Today I have some ADORABLE Beary Sweet mini notes to share with you!

I used the Beary Sweet Cupcakes 2 file (available on Friday) and the mini note card bases to make these adorable and yummy cards!

See Candace is not the ONLY DT member that can make awesome cupcakes!!  That's right, I can too!!  (Just in paper form, while she does it in actual edible form! LOL)


I just LOVE making the mini note cards because they come together SUPER FAST and easy!


I used some washi tape from my stash to add to the bottom of each card, jute twine as the cherry stem & of course the perfect complimentary sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Hey Cupcake!
Here is what the full Cupcakes 2 file looks like (available Friday) - how fun are they?

Have a Hap Hap Happy Holiday!

Hi everyone..
I wanted to share with you today some super fast but adorable treat holders you can whip up fast for the upcoming holiday season!

Holiday treat tags!!
I made one as a framed tag and the other as a shaker tag so you can see the variations of what you can do with these fun stamps and dies!

 Here are 2 treat tag ideas for 2 totally different holidays!  First is NEW YEARS and then Christmas!  As you can see.. same concept, but you can get 2 totally different looks and effects!
They both use the Treat Tag Die and the Holiday Treat Tag stamp set. What I love about this stamp set is that you get FOUR treat tags stamps.. New Years, 2 Christmas, & Thanksgiving.
I had some Sticky back glitter foam and cut out several treat tag dies in Chipboard to get the desired thickness I wanted and needed. Then I cut one from the foam as well to frame it.
I then Tied the treat tags to the 1 X 6 tube holders and filled with kisses!
I wanted the classic look of New Years so made this in Black, White and Silver.
I cut some fun Stars in the giltter foam as well.
I had some pretty silver ribbon and added some Doodlebug Washi to the end of the tube.

On the Christmas Treat Tag.. the concept was the same as the other, except MORE layers so that I could add a top layer of acetate and add doodlebug sequins for a shaker tag!
Again I wrapped some fun washi to the end of the tube.

You can see in the top right corner of my tag, the chipboard layers.. its about 1/8"-1/4" thick.

I hope this inspires you to make your own fun tags this holiday season! Add them to treat or even just as package toppings. There are so many fun uses for them, you will be on a roll once you get started!

And now for my project!
Today I decided to make cute Sally, Charlie Brown's little sister!
I placed Sally on the  Tree Tube holder and sized her so that it looks as if she is reaching to add another ornament to the decorated tree.
I tied it off with some red twine.  The 1 X 6 tube is filled with rolos and the sentiment is from Christmas Wishes stamped on a die from Halloween Dies.

Monster Bundle Lollipops... DONK!!

Hi everyone.. with so many monsters being released today over at SVGCuttingFiles, I decided to show you a few things you can do with the few BUNDLES we have for you!

Meet DONK!

 I used the DONK Bundle.... to make a set of Lollipops! These will be awesome for Halloween Handouts, Classroom treats, and party favors too.  Donk has many expressions, and I wanted to show you them all today!!
To make them I used the DONK bundle and sized them to fit on top of the  base of the Animal Head lollipops, (I just simply cut the ears off Monkey one!)

I used paper straws I have had for ages and cut them down to make covers for the lollipop sticks.  I then used different mini tag dies and stamps (monster mash, monster candies) to create these adorable pops!

I hope you liked me little MONSTERS!
Many more to come all month long!

Who is ready to Tango- Go???

Wait until you meet Tango-Go! I love his BOLD Bright Colors!!
Tango-Go will be available in the store on Friday!





This creature is an arrange-a-tang of the G.Mod genus. Typically an arrange-a-tang is a citrus creature who can shape-shift, or “arrange” itself into any shape to suit any meal. They’re goal in life is pretty much to be eaten; so as genetically modified fruit monsters they’ll hide in recipes, and wait for you. Tango-go in particular likes party food. Unfortunately for him, since very few people have good, nutritious food at parties he remains uneaten. Fortunately for you his G.Mod horns won’t get you.

How SUPER FUN is he? Again Tango GO will be in stores FRIDAY!!
Since he is a citrus creature, I found the fun Peachy O gummies candy for him.
 I added my candy treats into the 3 X 4 bags and attached them to the Ticket Die.
Tango-Go just went perfect with this Berrylicious sentiment!

These and all our Squarey Monster cut files are based off original artwork from Squarey Monsters.  Check them all out here!
