My Scrap Chick - 4th of July Star Treat Toppers

Hello Everyone!
Here today to share with you some quick toppers I made for the 4th of July. I will be giving one to each of my kids while we watch the town's local fireworks.
I used My Scrap Chick's 4th of July Tag to create the toppers. I created a shadow for the larger star and cut it out twice. I then sandwiched a 2.25"x10" baggie filled with Twizzlers between to the two larger stars and stapled closed.
These were so quick and easy to put together! Even though 4th of July is on Wednesday, you can still put these cute toppers together just in time.
Thanks for stopping by!

Cardstock Warehouse - DIY Teacher Appreciation Flower Gift Card Bouquet

Hello ScrappinCookie Fans!

I'm here today to share with you a project I put together for Cardstock Warehouse in honor of our hard working teachers. Teacher Appreciation Week runs from May 6th thru May 12th this year. This fun Flower Gift Card Bouquet holds a gift card inside each Rose and serves as a Décor piece long after the gifts cards have been used.  It is sure to let any teacher know just how thankful you are they helped your child GROW and BLOOM.

To create the flowers, I used the My Scrap Chick Rose File. These Roses are made up of 5 layers and each layer has 2 equally sized parts. I first inked my Rose edges, then rolled up the edges using a round object - such as a pen, glue stick, etc. Once all my edges were rolled up, I placed a Glue Dot in the center of one of the equally sized petal parts and then overlapped the two, repeating for all five layers. I then adhered all the layers together using a Glue Dot. To the center of each Rose, I added a small twined button.

 I took the largest layer and turned it into one solid shape, so I would be able to create my Gift Card Pockets - you need Three(3) of these solid flowers. To create the Flower Gift Card Pockets, I placed a Gift Card on a Flower layer, about ¾” to 1” above the edge. Placed foam adhesive all around the gift card and glued the Second Flower layer on top, “sandwiching” the Gift Card inside. I painted some wooden dowels green and adhered them to the back of my Gift Card pocket with some hot glue. Added some adhesive around the stem and adhered the Third Flower layer.

 I used the My Scrap Chick Doodle Leaves to add some leaves to my Rose Stems. I ran these thru my Xyron Sticker Maker and used hot glue to adhere to the back of the stems.

For my Flower Container, I used the top portion of the My Scrap Chick Uncle Sam Hat Box and cut it out using Cardstock Warehouse Black Licorice Paper. I added some panels cut from the Doodlebug Design Back to School Collection. I placed a piece of Floral Styrofoam inside to keep the Rose Stem in place. I added my Roses - took me a few pokes to find just the right placement - and added some green paper shreds to hide the Floral Styrofoam.

I finished off my Gift Card Flower Bouquet, by tying some ribbon around the container and adding a "Happy Teacher Appreciation Day" Sentiment from the Jaded Blossom School Time Greeting Stamp Set stamped on some Cardstock Warehouse White Sweet Tooth Paper.

Now, it’s your turn to make your own Gift Card Flower Bouquet. These would also be great for any occasion, such as Mother’s Day, Graduation, Birthdays, etc. Simply change the colors to your flowers!

ISO: Scrappy Moms Terrific Teachers Stamp Set...

Hello Everyone!

Sorry for the lack of projects. Its been a bit busy around the house. I'm here today to ask for a bit of help. I'm looking for an older stamp set from 2014. 😳 I’m looking for “Terrific Teachers” by  Scrappy Moms Stamps and unfortunately, they went out of business a few years ago. However, I still like their sets and would like to add the "Terrific Teachers" to my collection. So, if you happen to have this set and would like to part with it and sell it, please leave me a comment with a way to contact you.

Thank You so much for visiting my blog and following my work! ❤️

My Scrap Chick - Some Bunny Sweet Lollipop Holders | Happy Easter!

Hello Everyone!
I hope everyone has a very special day together with their friends and family.
Easter sure did come up quickly and I just couldn't let pass by without playing around with the My Scrap Chick Bunny Lollipop Holders. I just LOVE the way they turned out! They were so EASY and QUICK to put together. I was done in less than 1 Hour!
I did downsize the file just a little bit, so that the scalloped window would have a better fit around my lollipop. I first cut them out of Cardstock Warehouse Paper - Banana Split, Blu Raspberry, and Pink Lemonade - and then I re-cut only the front part in some Doodlebug Design Petite Print Paper.
To the Girl Bunnies, I added a small flower from the "Miss Cottontail" Spring Bunnies My Scrap Chick File.
The adorable little Bunny Faces are from the Jaded Blossom Bunny Faces Stamp Set. I tied it closed with matching twine and added a Jaded Blossom Mini Tag Die stamped with a sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Easter Treats 2 Stamp Set.
I couldn't forget to add a fluffy white cottontail to the backs. How cute is that?!
These would be great Party Favors at ANY Spring Party or gathering, not only Easter!
Thanks for stopping by!

Jaded Blossom Guest Designer - Easter Egg Basket

Hello Everyone!
Today marks my last day as Jaded Blossom's March 2018 Guest Designer. Such a sad day! I've had such a wonderful time all month long with the Release and Guest Designer Days. A very special THANK YOU to Candace and Michelle for having me on the blog!
For my last project, I decided to do something with an Easter theme since tomorrow is Easter Day! I started out with the "Flower Egg Basket" from My Scrap Chick and cut it out using Cardstock Warehouse Berrylicious Paper.
I used various patterned papers from the Doodlebug Design Bunnyville and Easter Express Collections. I skipped out on the "flowers" included in the file and instead used the Chevron Borders and Doodle Borders from My Scrap Chick to turn it into a boyish basket.
I wanted to personalize the basket for a special little boy, so I die-cut the name out of craft foam using the Jaded Blossom Alphabet Dies. I just love the way it turned out! The dies cut right through the foam beautifully.
To the handle, I added a cluster of tags. I stamped the "An Easter Treat for You" from the Monthly Spotlight Stamp Set Easter Treats 2 onto a Mini Tag Dies. I then layered that on top of a tag from Jaded Blossom Sweet Treats Die stamped with the "Do Not Open" Sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Bunny Mail Set.
- If you haven't already gotten your Jaded Blossom Easter Treats 2 Stamp Set,
RUN to the store - its ONLY on sale until TONIGHT! -
Even though tomorrow is Easter, you still have time to put a quick Easter treat together. Jaded Blossom makes it so easy with all their stamps and dies!
I had such a WONDERFUL time!
THANK YOU for all the kind and sweet comments left on my blog, facebook and Instagram throughout the month of March!
