Festive Friday – Mini Lots to Love Box

  I love this fun and easy Mini Lots to Love Box, but I am even more excited to be part of the new design team for the awesome Festive Friday Challenge!  It’s an amazing challenge where you earn a point every time you enter a card or 3-D item and earn 5 points if you are chosen as one of our Festive Friday Faves (three awards given each week!)  You can use your points to choose prizes!  One of the prizes will be the tutorial to make my Mini Lots to Love Box!  Please leave a comment at the top of this post or email me at Beth@StampingMom.com if you enter the Festive Friday Challenge or have any questions. 🙂  I hope all of you enter our challenge here!

I filled my Mini Lots to Love boxes with Ghirardelli Squares and White Shimmer Sixlets.  You can click on the links below, to purchase from Amazon.  Everything I used to make the box is listed at the very bottom of this post.  Click on any of theses pictures to purchase the products from my store.


Hope you’re having a great week!

Blessings,

A couple weeks ago we had our Cabin Fever Stamp Camp.  Each of the demos hosting, made a notebook and gift bag for each of their guests.  I had fun making these eleven notebooks for my guests.  I wish I had thought of this idea myself, but I cased it from Teresa Howe.  I loved her beautiful notebooks made with Brusho and the Painted with Love DSP.  Making the butterflies with Brusho was fun!  Do you see how each one turned out differently?  They are really pretty in real life!

I  made eleven of these gift bags too.  The butterflies were heat embossed with Gold Emboss Powder.  I used an Aqua Painter and Brusho to create the color.  I will post pictures of the displays and all the cards our guests got to make at the Stamp Camp soon.  Here’s a video to see Brusho in action.

 

The Fast Fuse Sale ended already, but I did get my order in for those that let me know they wanted some.  Yeah!

One on One Card Swap- Stampin Up Style

Here’s another post I put the pictures in during December and forgot to post.  Someone told me at BSF Leadership today they couldn’t tell I really have memory issues, I guess they don’t read my blog. 🙂  Here’s some beautiful cards exchanged in our One on One Card Swap before Christmas.

Thanks for sending me all the beautiful cards. Everyone who sent a card, got a card in exchange in the mail.  Please let me know if you would like to participate when we do another One on One card swap!

We had a teenage issue at our house today.  It started when I opened a Costco size (very large) container of fresh raspberries for breakfast.  I had an an awesome breakfast of Coconut Yogurt, almonds, frozen blueberries and delicious fresh raspberries.  I liked it so much, I thought I might have it again for lunch after BSF.  Problem was, when I got home at noon, the empty raspberry container was in the garbage.  Apparently Keegan had raspberries for breakfast as well.  All the raspberries!  I have a secret I haven’t told my kids.  I have an entire garden devoted to raspberries every summer.  I go out each morning during raspberry season and eat them all before I get back into the house.  If today is any indication, I hope Keegan never finds out about the Raspberry garden. 🙂

I ended up having delicious Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup for lunch instead.  I made it Sunday for the first time and it was super good!  Keegan got home after school famished, after having only raspberries for breakfast.  He went back for cup after cup of the soup.  Steve called at 5 to tell me he was on his way home and couldn’t wait to have some soup.  (It’s freezing in Iowa and we got several inches of snow today, so soup sounded really good!)  I told him Keegan ate ALL the soup and ALL the raspberries.  Steve told me to lock the refrigerator and keep Keegan away from it until he got home so there would be something left for him to eat.  LOL  Life with a hungry 17 year old who’s 6’3″!  Good thing we love him so much!

Hope you’re having a great week!

Blessings,

Beth 🙂
