Girl's Day treat box

Hi everyone! Here's an easy treat box to make for Girl's Day. Box used is the Sizzix XL shaker box die. Stamps used are Dandelion Designs. I kind of ate all the chocolate candy while making this box so I had 2 pieces left which is why it looks half empty.
Don't forget about our make & take tomorrow from 10-12 pm. We'll be using the Big Shot Pro machine to make our project. Please check the post below for the supplies to bring with you.
See you tomorrow!!!

New Pillowbox

Hi everyone! Last night I used another 12x12 die for the Big Shot Pro machine and made this ginormous pillowbox. The finished size is 8"x5". Very huge for a pillowbox but it holds a lot of stuff. The sample will be at the store so you can see how big it really is. All stamps used are Hero Arts. The lace punch is a Martha Stewart border punch. One of my favorite punches to use right now.
Have a great weekend and stay warm!

Shipment of new products

Hi everyone! Products that we ordered at the CHA show have been arriving at the store everyday. Here are some of the new Spellbinder dies. There are a bunch of new dies on backorder and should be coming in soon. We received some of the Greeting Farm stamps too. So many customers have been requesting for these stamps.
We also got in the Martha Stewart scoring board and some papers. There are more boxes that still need to be checked in and priced.Lastly, we received our reorder from Hero Arts. Here are some of the stamps.This last picture shows most of the red hearts that customers brought in during last week so they could get an additional 10% off of their purchases.

We have a big Sizzix shipment coming in tomorrow so stay tuned. Have a great evening!!!

Round top box

Hi everyone! I'm finally using my Kathy bunny die and decided to put her on this Sizzix box. This is a Pro die called round top box. It is a 12x12 size die to be used in the Pro machine. The top flaps over to the other side and you insert it in the slit. I like the new size of these dies because you can cut 1 box or bag out of 1 sheet of paper. Unlike the XL dies where you have to cut out 2 or 3 pieces to complete a box. We still have the MS grass punch so get it now while it's still in stock. Ribbon used is American Crafts.
We made a matchbook candy favor this past Saturday for our make & take. It was cute and simple. We used Hero Arts dot cling stamp for the background and Dandelion Designs stamps to decorate the cover.Here is the inside of the matchbook. We stapled a lifesavers candy to the inside cover.
Have a great Tuesday and don't forget this week's sale on Offray ribbons!
