Fall Y’all Frame with Celebration Tidings

Fall Y’all Frame with Celebration Tidings

Time for the Fall Y’all finale’. I’m over the moon excited to share my Fall Y’all Frame with you guys. Wouldn’t this look super cute on your holiday tablescape. It would also make a great little hostess gift. I’ll be giving one to my daugther for her desk at school. I think the kids will get a kick out of it.

First up, I know you’re asking THE question. Where did you get the frame? Well, believe it or not, my local Dollar General. Yep, and it was only $3. It’s a 5″ x 7″ frame and I love the barnwood look. If that’s not Fall Y’all, I don’t know what is.

Creating my lettering was a breeze with the Playful Alphabet die set. First, I backed my Basic Black card stock with our adhesive sheets to create alphabet stickers. No messy glue and very forgiving as you are planning the perfect placement.

All the dimension and stitching created by the dies made this project super special. The stitched leaves die set is a must have. It’s a very unique set, that can be purchased as a bundle. That will save you 10%.  Because the stamp set is photopolymer, you’ll achieve fabulous distressed fall images with each stamping.

Our fantastic focal image was created, yet again, with the Celebration Labels die set. Be sure to check out day #1 and day #2 in the Fall Y’all series. You’ll fast discover you’ve got to have these dies in your crafting stash.

Gift Wrapped Christmas Treat

Gift Wrapped Christmas Treat

Let’s switch gears a bit. Today, let’s create a quick and easy gift wrapped Christmas treat. There’s a couple of reasons this one can be easily massed produced. First, the Gift Wrapped Bundle includes a punch. Second, the mini pizza boxes are all cut and scored, ready to decorate.

Gift Wrapped Christmas Treat, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because I punched a couple of bow images, I was able to create a very dimensional embellishment for the treat box. By running it through the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder, it was easy to add lots of great interest and texture. Not only that, spritzing the embossed images with the Champagne Shimmer Mist made the bow very festive and sparkly.

A bellyband is alwasy a great way to not only hold your treat box shut, but to decorate it to your heart’s content.

And what says Christmas treats more than custom wrapped candy? It’s so easy to wrap Hershey Nuggets with a 1″ x 3″ piece of DSP. I’ve used the Tis’ the Season DSP pack to choose my candycane pattern.

Gift Wrapped Christmas Treat, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The mini pizza boxes come 8 to a package, making them a very economical option. The Gift Wrapped Bundle should be one of the first things on your holiday craft supply list. You’ll thank me later.

Halloween Candy Cone

Halloween Candy Cone

Booing is a Halloween tradition of surprising neighbors with treats during the month leading up to the holiday. Families sneak special treats onto neighbors’ or friends’  or kiddos’ porches after dark. I think my Halloween Candy Cone is the perfect treat for just that.

There’s lots of reasons you’ll want to create multiples of my Halloween Candy Cone. First, it’s easy. Second, it’s large enough to fill with lots of treats. Third, you can hang it on the door handle, ring the bell and BOO!

So many reasons to order a couple packages of the Black Glitter Paper. The glittery paper is just right for treat packaging. First of all, it’s glittery, but the glitter doesn’t cover you and everything else. No glitter shedding!  Second, it has a black core, so no white edges.  Third, you can use our Black Stampin’ Dimensionals to make everything seamless.

Hallow's Night 2-4-6-8 Treat Box, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

My color combo from my Hallows Night Magic treat box was dictated by the gorgeous Magic in this Night DSP. The palette is Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock and Whisper White.
