I took out a couple of Halloween decorations out since I was so excited playing with all my Halloween goodies from the Holiday catalogue. Then, I reconsidered…. Chris's birthday is coming very soon, actually it's on Thanksgiving this year. I just can't take out the Halloween stuff before his birthday… It just doesn't feel right…I'm still not sure how I am going to post about him. Some of you know how I love to scrapbook and I would sure like to incorporate him in my pages. How can I describe Chris to you? On social media, Chris is like Tim the toolman Taylor's neighbor, Wilson W. Wilson Jr. You never get to see his face on the show. Well that is pretty much my social media life with Chris. Ya! he's a private guy but the main reason involves his career. With some careers social media is not a great thing… He also has my best interest at heart… Therefore, You will not get to see very much of my guy:) Here's a little sneak peak… I do plan on putting him in my project life albums, you might not see all his body parts on my blog lol I can count on one hand the number of years he has until retirement…. After that, it will be a different story. He does have some serious man candy going, so I'm very sorry that I can't share:)))) It will be a very thick album since we are compatible in so many ways and already have a great deal of adventures that need to be preserved in albums:)
He didn't know it was him in the picture when I showed him. Maybe cause he didn't have any gel in his hair.. So I don't think it's a big deal that I share here. Plus it's the perfect "Wilson" picture. I'm still struggling with the nick name I will call him while blogging. If you have any ideas please share…
Back to stamping. I created a couple of 3D treat holders. My focus was Halloween but you can make these goodies with a completely different theme. The more I play with my Stampin'up! products, the more I get creative. Albert Einstein once said: "Creativity is intelligence having fun." I'm having a great time and struggling with Influenza so I haven't slept much this week. I had all the time in the world to think of creative projects. A couple of days ago, I had a aha moment. not sure if the designer at Stampin'up! planned this out but the spider web dollies on p. 47 from the Holiday catalogue fits perfectly with the square pillow box thinlits dies p. 41. Isn't this awesome? I think so!
See my images below: I cut the spider web dollies in half and it fit perfectly on the top of the square pillow box. I also used a clear window sheet to make all my pillow boxes. My goal was to show off the goodies in the boxes but you can use regular card stock to make them. Different options are in the holiday catalogue on p. 41. I also love how Stampin up! created bundle deals, the pillow die has a great bundle deal. You get 15% off when you purchase the square pillow box thinlits dies with the stamp set called a little something on p 41. I received a couple of requests for the paper copy of the catalogue. If you are in canada and want a paper copy email me HERE.
I decided to post the boxes individually so you get a better look at these. I can't pick which one is my favorite?
Love Love Love the Happy Haunting designer series paper #139584. Especially this side of the designer paper which reminds me of burberry.
I had to do a custom pillow box for Jordan… I added chocolate in her box and her picture as well.
These make perfect Halloween treats. And the decoration adds a touch of love to share with your family, coworkers and friends. I'm thinking of adding a basket of these at my desk at work.
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend. I'm off to bake pumpkin spice cookies for my gang!
