This would be a fabulous treat to leave in the mailbox for your postal carrier or to leave for your UPS delivery person. I’ll bet it would put a smile on their face for sure.

Because the bundle comes with a set of coordinating dies, you’ll be creating a batch of Cup of Cheer Treat Holders and other projects in no time flat.

The cute little pocket, on the inside, holds a packet of Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix. What would you include in the there? I would love to hear your suggestionns.

To create the “foam” on my cup of cheer, I used our new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint. It’s easy to use! I punched a 1 1/2″ Whisper White circle, scribbled some of the puff paint on and heated it up with the heat tool. Voila, instant foam!

Pumpkin Spice Thank You Treat

Pumpkin Spice Thank You Treat

In today’s fast pace world, I truly think it’s important to thank those that touch our lives on a daily basis. It’s fall, so that means pumpkin everything. So why not create a cute pumpkin spice thank you treat? 

Pumpkin Spice Thank You Treat, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

How about leaving this sweet little Pumpkin Spice Thank You Gift in your mailbox for your postal carrier? I’ll bet you will be the hit of the route.  What about your UPS driver, nail technician, hairdresser or even the cashier at your favorite super market? Sometimes we take these all important people a little for granted. Nothing says appreciation like a handcrafted gift.

And, because we are getting ready for that all important Thanksgiving holiday, you know I had to find a Pumpkin Spice flavored treat! To create my 3D pumpkin, I used the cute bundle, Harvest Hellos. That one coordinates with the cute Apple Builder punch. But, it’s more than that. You can also create super cute pumpkin’s.

Oh my, stamping on the Come to Gather DSP, was such a great idea!  Stamp five pumpkin images, punch them out, fold in half and voila a 3D pumpkin.  

Creating the Pumpkin Spice Thank You Treat Holder was inspired by the Little Debbie treats that I found at my local Dollar Tree. Any big box in the U.S. will be carrying these. Be sure to grab a couple of boxes. I think you’ll want to create a few.

I just love that sentiment! It made me smile when I stamped it. My color palette is Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock with Whisper White. The goregous woodgrain DSP is from the Come to Gather pack. Love it!!! Grab a cuppa, sit back and relax. I hope you enjoy my video tutorial of this sweet Pumpkin Spice Thank You Treat!

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Box Wrap – Merry Merlot CS – 4 1/2″ x 11″, scored at 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 4 1/4″, 6 1/4″, and 8″
  • Slider Box – Merry Merlot CS – 7 1/2″ x 5″, scored on all four sides at 1 1/2″.
  • Mats – Come to Gather DSP – one @ 4 1/4″ x 2 3/4″, one @ 4 1/4″ x 1 3/4″, and one @ 4 1/4″ x 1 1/2″
  • Window – Window Sheet – 4″ x 1 3/4″
  • 3D Pumpkin – Come to Gather DSP – 2 1/4″ x 12″, stamp five of the pumpkin images in Cajun Craze. Punch with the Apple Builder punch.
  • Leaves – Pretty Peacock CS – 3/4″ x 4 1/4″, stamp two leaves in Pretty Peacock, punch with the Apple Builder punch.
  • Stem & Trendil – Early Espresso CS – Scraps – Punch one stem with the Apple Builder punch. Trim a sliver of the CS, curl on a pencil to form the trendil.
  • Scallop Oval – Cajun Craze CS – 1 3/4″ x 2 1/2″, cut with the die from Layering Ovals.
  • Sentiment – Whisper White CS – 1″ x 3″, stamp in Merry Merlot, die cut with the smallest oval from Stitched Shapes dies.

Cookies & Tea Treat Holder

Cookies & Tea Treat Holder

Are you ready? I’ve got a quick and easy cookies & tea treat holder for you today. Lucky me, one of my lovely WOW Club Members shared these as her thank you happy during her recent party. Everyone loved them. After the cookies were all eaten (by my husband, by the way) and the cup of tea was enjoyed, I deconstructed her cookies and tea treat holder. I just had to see how she created it.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Cookies and Tea Treat Holder, Daisy Lane, Stampin' Up!

First thing I learned is that it required NO GLUE! That’s right, you read it correctly. There is no glue needed to construct the base of the treat holder. How you score and fold the paper is the trick. This is going to be the quickest and easiest cookies and tea treat holder EVER!! Teacher Appreciation week is fast approaching. These would be super cute to send with kiddos for their favorite teacher.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Cookies and Tea Treat Holder, Daisy Lane, Stampin' Up!

I’ve used one of our “coming soon” stamp sets in my design. Our new Daisy Lane bundle will include a stinkin’ cute 9-piece cling stamp set and a medium Daisy Punch. Both are brand new! With this new punch, there are so many more flower making possibilities.  You’ll want to order yours just as soon as the catalog goes live on June 4th. Need a copy of the catalog? Click to fill out my contact form and I’ll be in touch.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Cookies and Tea Treat Holder, Daisy Lane, Stampin' Up!

Because I used the Share What You Love DSP, it made my cookies and tea treat holder super strong. The paper will be retiring, so you’ll want to pick up a couple of packs to create future treats and boxes. It’s the perfect weight and there are 24 sheets in the package.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Cookies and Tea Treat Holder, Daisy Lane, Stampin' Up!

I’ld love to show you how quick and easy this project truly is. What better way to do that, than with a FREE video tutorial!

Easter Treats Extravaganza

Easter Treats Extravaganza

Time for my Easter Treat Extravaganza! Do you love to put a smile on the faces of those important people in your life? You can do that with just a little something we refer to as a “happy”. Nothing says love like a handcrafted little something.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

All four of the treat holders are pretty quick and easy to create.  I highlighted the projects on my recent Facebook Live. Be sure to Like and Follow my WOW NOLA Creations Page so you don’t miss out on any future  Susan WOW Live Shows. I’m LIVE Sunday evenings at 7pm (CST). Can’t make the LIVE, no worries, I always post the video and you can catch the replay. Now back to these super cute Easter Treats. 

1st up we have this super cute cookie treat. I was able to snatch these up at my local Dollar General. They have bunnies, Easter eggs and chicks. But, for this one I chose the bunnies. Be quick, they are selling out fast!!!!!

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

Using the Daisy Delight stamp set and punch it was super easy to make a fabulous topper for my treat.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

Here’s how the magic happens on this one.

  • Designer Series Paper – Painted Seasons – 9 1/2″ x 2 3/4″, round off the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch.
  • Daisy and Sentiment – Whisper White CS – 3″ x 8 1/2″. Stamp two of the daisy images from the Daisy Delight set, in Calypso Coral, punch with the daisy punch. Stamp the sentiment from the Fable Friends set in Memento Tuxedo Black. Punch out the sentiment with the 1 1/4″ circle punch.
  • Scallop Circle – Calypso Coral CS – punch one 1 3/8″ scallop circle
  • Daisy Centers and Leaves – Lemon Lime Twist CS – punch 2 sets of leaves with the Leaf punch. punch two 3/4″ circles for the center and back of the daisy.

It wouldn’t be a WOW show if we didn’t step things up. Next up we have our little Peekaboo Bunny Treat Holder. The Gingham Gala DSP makes the most darlin’ Easter Treats! Be sure to order at least 2 packages of this fabulous paper before it’s gone forever.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

I picked up the cute chocolate bunnies at my local Dollar Tree. They come 3 to a package for $1. You can mix and match the colors with the DSP pack.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

Wait, did you see those cute sequins? They are sticky back, so easy application. They come in assorted colors with 250 in a package. Here’s how the magic happens on this one.

  • Tag Topper Easter Treat Holder – CS color of your choice – This one is Highland Heather CS – 2″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/4″ and 5 3/4″. Punch both ends with the Tag Topper Punch.
  • DSP  Mat – Gingham Gala DSP color of your choice – This one is Highland Heather. 1 3/4″ x 4″
  • Wet glue the DSP to the front of the tag topper Easter Treat holder. Punch a 1 1/2″ circle from a post it note. Use that circle to mark a place on the treat holder. The bottom of the punched circle should be 1 1/4″ from the first score line on the treat holder.
  • Scallop Oval – CS color of your choice. This one is Highland Heather CS – 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″. Cut with the die from the Layering Ovals set.

Ready to step it up again? This time we will be adding a few more steps, embellishments and lots of cuteness. The Bunny Rope treats were found at Dollar General and they come 10 to a package for $1. Can’t get too much better than that. These would be cute for your kids or grandkids to bring to their classrooms for Easter Treats to share with their friends.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

The cute little bunnies on the packaging started my creative wheels turning. Then I chose the color palette to match. This one is quick and easy to put together. But, it is also easy for the kiddos to get the treat without damaging the treat holder. In that way, Mom could use the bits from the treat holder to embellishment a scrapbook page to commemorate the event.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

I’ve got so many people asking for the directions for this one. Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Sentiment – Whisper White CS – 2″ x 3″, stamp the sentiment from Best Bunny in Gorgeous Grape, punch out the image with the Tailored Tag punch. Punch one Tailored Tag from Gorgeous Grape, cut it in half lengthwise. Glue each section to the sentiment, forming a frame, top/bottom.

Last, but certainly not least, is my WOW Easter Treat.  I wanted the kiddos to have an opportunity to learn something about nature and growing something. That’s when I found the sweet little carrot chocolates at my local Dollar Tree. You can also find these at Dollar General and Target.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Treats, March 2019, Stampin' Up!

OMG, is this not the cutest little planter EVER? And I think the packet of Carrot seeds are the perfect little backdrop.

Happy Time with Fable Friends

Happy Time with Fable Friends

What’s a Happy, you ask? I have a friend that coined that phrase. It’s a little treat holder you create, to share a little something sweet, with friends and family.  This time our theme is Easter, and the Wood Crate Framelits to the rescue! For this happy, I turned the little crate into an Easter basket.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Happy, Fable Friends, Stampin' Up!

When using this die, you’ll need two images. One of the best parts, the die also scores the card stock. I wanted to step it up a notch and ran the images through the Big Shot with the Basket Weave 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It really gave it an Easter basket look and feel.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Happy, Fable Friends, Stampin' Up!

To finish off the basket, I needed a handle. So, I just cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock 9″ x 1/2″. Because I wanted to dress it up a bit, I also added a strip of the Gingham Gala DSP.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Happy, Fable Friends, Stampin' Up!

Don’t you just love the little squirrel holding the sunflower? It reminds me of my backyard. We have very large oak trees and a whole bunch of squirrels.  Every Spring, I plant giant sunflowers and they climb the stalks to get to the sunflower seeds.  It’s all good, I plant so many, I still have my share to bring inside to enjoy.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Easter Happy, Fable Friends, Stampin' Up!

I would love to show you how quick and easy this little happy is to create. How about a FREE video tutorial?

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Crate – Crumb Cake CS – 4 1/4″ x 11″, cut two images using the Wood Crate Die. Run through the Big Shot with the Basket Weave folder.
  • Handle – Crumb Cake CS – 9″ x 1/2″ and Gingham Gala DSP – 6″ x 3/8″
  • Banner – Gingham Gala DSP – 2″ x 3″, stamp sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black, punch the image with the Duet Banner Punch.
  • Scallop Circle – Pineapple Punch CS – 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″, cut the image with the Layering Circle Framelits.
