Check Out this Wondrous Wreath Video!

When I first opened the Stampin Up Holiday mini, I fell in love with the Wondrous Wreath set.  It also comes with a matching framelit set so that makes it super easy to cut out the pieces. This video shows you how to use the set and shows you some cute projects too! If for some reason you can’t view it in your email, just click the link to my website to view it.

Fall Treat Bag!

popcorn bag


This is a really quick and easy fall treat bag I made using the Stampin Up Chevron bags found on pg 201. The front piece is stamped using the For All Things set found on pg 41 in the Holiday mini. I used hello honey and cajun craze to stamp the images. Also the background designer paper is the gorgeous Color Me Autumn paper also found on pg 41 of the Holiday mini. I put a bag of microwave popcorn inside and sealed it with the Color Me Autumn washi tape.
