Chocolate Bar packaging

Hard to believe but it is now February.  I have been preparing some Valentine treats and cards so that I am all ready on the 14th!

Today I am going to share a chocolate bar cover that I made using the amazing Country Bouquet Bundle.  I have also used some of the elements from the Country Floral Lane Suite.

When the recipient receives this packaging all they have to do is pull the ribbon and it pulls the chocolate bar out of the packaging!

PPP Blog Hop - Key to My Heart


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!

The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the January Paper Pumpkin kit "Key To My Heart".

This kit coordinates with the Add-on Heart Boxes (#162417) Price is $15.00 for 10 boxes.
  • The add-on includes:

    • 10 treat boxes
    • Key and label stickers
    • Box size: 3" x 4" (7.6 x 10.2 cm)
    • Coordinating Stampin’ Up! colors: Petal Pink with gold foil.  

These are the original projects:

These are my alternate projects using the supplies in the kit plus a few additional items that will be listed below.

My first alternate is a card using the front of one of the cards that I cut down in size and made it into a shaker card. I used a Fresh Freesia card e.

My second alternate is made using the Add On Heart Box. I added the Fresh Freesia piece under the greeting and added a bow and dot embellishment.

Thank you for joining us as we share with you the possibilities of Paper Pumpkin. Now hop over to my friend Deb where you will find another great Paper Pumpkin alternate project idea. Follow the blog hop by clicking on the Pumpkin below.

Beautifully Happy

Beautifully Happy stamp set is one of the offerings in the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  It has the most beautiful 2 step stamping images that not only fill into an outline, they also are shaded.  In other words the image becomes shaded in light and dark tones of your colour choice.

This Card was beautifully created by Leena Girsa!  She has used 2 of the Sale-A-Bration free products.  Can you spot them both?
