Hallowe’en or Christmas Treats!

Hallowe’en or Christmas Treats

I realize that today’s post is too late for your Hallowe’en or Christmas treats this year but hopefully, you can envision it being adapted to hold some sweet treats for Christmas!   This is called a “Matchbook” holder because it really looks like a matchbook, doesn’t it?

Many years ago when we got married, it was a tradition to have a matchbook similar to this one with our names and the date of our wedding printed on them for our guests to take with them as a remembrance of our special day!  I do believe the “Matchbook” is making a comeback!

You can make this, too!  Here are the products used: 

Now I’d like to show you the treats that I put inside the Matchbook folders to hand out on Hallowe’en night.  Maybe for Christmas, you could use individual Turtle Chocolates or Peppermint Patties!

Would you like to see a close-up look – here it is!

I hope you’ll share some of your Matchbox Creations with me!

Friendly Friday Wishes

Making money and being rich isn’t everything. I believe it’s also important to be happy with what you do each and every day and, if you make some money along the way, that’s a bonus!!

And now the weekend has arrived, we’re off to spend time with our family going to events that we enjoy and spending time together. What are your plans for the weekend?

Anniversary Card for a Special Fall Day

Anniversary Card for a Special Fall Day

Have you ever needed an anniversary card for a special fall day?  Here’s one that I recently made and, even though you can’t see it in this picture, I used Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to the flower images!  Love the results!  When using photopolymer stamps with matching framelits, I suggest that you lay the stamp inside the framelit and then place the block on it.  By doing this, the stamped image will be in exactly the correct place when you use the framelit with the big shot to cut it out!!


Anniversary Card for a Special Fall Day

You’ll note that by using the method mentioned above, the “Happy Anniversary” greeting is shaped to match the background that is cut out with the framelit!  Rhinestone basic jewels can be added for sparkle if you want.

Here are the products used:

You can see another sample using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set here.

Special Birthday Card Unlike No Other!

Special Birthday Card Unlike No Other!

Each year when my hubby’s birthday arrives, I make a special birthday card unlike no other, so he knows he’s very special to me!  Today I’m sharing the 2017 version of his birthday card – he liked it – I was pleased!  You will note that it’s larger in size (5″ x 7″) than most of my samples – again that’s to let him know he’s special!

Here are the products used: 

Another sample using these framelits is here and a Christmas version is here.
