Christmas Nugget Tins

Made two different types of nugget tins for Christmas. The first one I used Sizzix's Sizzlits Winter Set #3's Reindeer and my Ridinghood Red ribbon from the SU mini catalog. The second one I used some of SU's new Christmas rub-ons and the same Ridinghood Red ribbon.

Inside is a Hello Kitty Christmas pin that I made with Shrink Art along with the nuggets for Enjoli. This is part of a little rak that I am making to send over to her on the Big Island. I just love Christmas!

Hello Kitty Tree from my BFF!

OMGoodness, I went to visit my bff, Joy, at work yesterday and she surprised me with the greatest Hello Kitty/soccer/cupcake/pink & brown mini tree! Her boss makes these and was selling them at a craft fair yesterday and I had mentioned to Joy that I wanted to buy one. Instead of having to buy one, Joy made me one! I can't believe all the work (well I can, because Joy is the sweetest most thoughtful person that I know). I love it Joy! Will keep this baby out year round! Thank you so much Joy, your friendship means the world to me!

Pacific Stamper's Holiday Stamp Camp

Happy Tuesday everyone! As I promised, here are some of the projects that were made at the Pacific Stamper's Holiday Stamp Camp:

Brenda always makes the cutest favors for the event. Can you believe she made like 75 of these little bird houses! They were filled with little peppermints. She is totally amazing.

Kayla and Lorraine made these little treat boxes using the Holiday Trinket Stamp set and the Top Notes Bigz Die. Such a clever idea, it is kind of like the Frankie box that people were doing for Halloween.

A pic of the inside.

Jane and Michelle made these gift card holders that were so awesome! The card splits apart to show the gift card holder. The card swivels and everything, so crazy!

Pic of the inside.

This was my group, we did a Snowman Soup. Used an extra large whisper white envelope to make the bag-a-lope and scored three sides at 1". Then cut of the unscored side to creat the bag. Also used the Merry and Bright stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed these and aloha!

It's Raining Hello Kitty! Blog Candy Alert!

This weekend I got to meet one of my blog sistahs, Enjoli! She is the sweetest person and look at all the goodies that she brought over from the Big Island!

For my daughter, a cute embossed Hello Kitty tin filled with Hello Kitty goodies! My daughter just loved it! Carried the tin around all night until she fell asleep and I could tear it from her hands, lol. I was afraid that she was going to ruin it.

She also gave me this cute little scallop envelope box/basket filled with yummy cookies! So cute!

Had to show you the cute designer brads that she used for the handles.

Here is the matching card. Just love the colors and all the papers. Thank you so much Enjoli for thinking of me and my daughter. You are so sweet and I hope you liked your bag full of goodies from Joy and I.

Speaking of my BFF, she also gave me a Hello Kitty rak too! Everyone spoils me, I don't deserve all of this! She made it using the diaper fold technique and filled it with a bunch of little clear stamp sets. Thanks Joy! Love them all!

Stop by tomorrow, I will be sharing some of the projects and goodies from my SU group's Holiday Stamp Camp.

Lacey over at Hand Stamped by Lacey is having a birthday blog candy giveaway! She does the cutest cards and love to use those adorable High Hopes stamps. Go check her out!

I've been busy!

Starting to get ready for the upcoming holiday season. Found these little candles at Walmart for $1. Decided to get 5 red and 5 white and decorate them so that I have little things to throw into gift baskets this year.

I made a zillion of these little box/bags. The base is 3 1/4"x 3 1/4" and the surrounding piece is 3"x 10. Just like the big ones, but a cute tiny version. Putting candy and a Hello Kitty pin for all of my SU group. If you are in my group and see this, just act surprised, lol.

Faux Metal Cards

For my monthly SU meeting, we had the swap theme of Faux Metal. Apparently there are two different faux metal techniques. The technique that I did was from Split Coast and it was kind of a pain. The second technique that some of the ladies did was using metallic paper and embossing on it with matching metallic powder (I really liked how this technique came out versus the one that I did).

We have a very talented group of ladies and I wanted to share their cards:

Jane used the embossing onto the metallic paper technique.

Kehau used the technique linked above.

Brenda used the technique linked above.

Michelle used the embossing onto the metallic paper technique.

Lorraine used the embossing onto the metallic paper technique.

Shelby used the technique linked above.

Melissa used the technique linked above.

And I also used the technique linked above. Enjoy and aloha!
