Jaded Blossom Mini July Release - Road Trip Treat Caddy

Hello! Jaded Blossom is having a special die release for July!
We are calling it the Candy Caddy Die Release


The Candy Caddy will be available for sale starting July 1st, 12:00 am (limited quantities available). Our design team member Trixie came up with this idea!



I used the caddy dies to make this holder for road trip snacks. 


I used the tray portion for the bottom and then just folded the sides up wrapping a piece of card stock and ribbon around it to keep it together. It also looks like the road my little car is traveling on.

The little car SVG is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons while the sun and sentiment are made using the  JB Mini Tag Dies and the JB Jeep Beep candies stamps.

Make sure to head over to Jaded Blossom to see what the rest of the team created. 
Jaded Blossom also has a ton of fun stuff happening in July!

Jaded Blossom July Mini Release-camping treats

Hello! Jaded Blossom is having a special die release for July!
We are calling it the Candy Caddy Die Release

The Candy Caddy will be available for sale starting July 1st, 12:00 am (limited quantities available). Our design team member Trixie came up with this idea!



I used the caddy portion of the die and folded it up to make a handled treat bag topper. 

This actually folds up so its got two spots for two treat bags. 
I used the JB A2 card sleeves for the treat bags since they are the perfect width for the caddy. The rabbit in his sleeping bag is from the Cricut Campin Critters cartridge as is the sign that I stamped with words from the School Rocks stamp set. 

I finished off the topper with a strip of green paper that I cut using my Martha Stewart scissor that makes multiple cuts at one time. 

I think any child would love to see this in their backpack at summer camp. 

Thanks so much for checking out my project today!

Congrats Graduate!

Happy Monday!!! 
Over the weekend we had one last graduation party to attend. For this graduate, I decided to do a slightly different card. This is a box card...at least that's what I'm calling it. This design does make it hard for delivery and therefore not a design to fit an envelope for the mailbox. It's a hand delivery card.

The box bottom is from the Silhouette Store. It measures 4.25" wide by about 2" tall. I added a back so the overall box card is roughly 5.5" tall. I turned to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and the graudate files to embellish my card.
Once I had everything glued down, it was time to add the gift part...dollar bills taped end to end and rolled up to fit in the box. I added a tab at the top to start pulling the money from the box. 


How I did it:
Graduate and Ribbon SVG file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Graduates file
Title and mortar hat SVG file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Hats Off file
Banner and box bottom from the Silhouette Store
Tab is made using the Jaded Blossom Treat Tag die.

Have a crafty day!

Video Gamer Blog Hop- Get Ready to Play!

Hi there and welcome to the Jaded Blossom and SVG Cutting Files amazing
Video Gamer Blog Hop!
Do you like to game?  Well if so, you are in for a REAL Treat!!

If you arrived at this "level" that means you must have successfully completed the last one, otherwise, you will need to RESET and start at the beginning with Michelle

As any video gamer knows, you can only complete the game by beating all levels to eventually get to the Boss level.  Our blog hop today is set up on that 'idea', with each stop being a level to complete.

LEVEL COMPLETION GUIDES
To COMPLETE this level, all you need to do is...
1- FOLLOW this blog you are currently reading
 (see side bar for ways this blog allows you to follow)
2- COMMENT on this blog post, letting me know how much you enjoyed my project today
3- Go to the NEXT  LEVEL once you have completed the steps above!

So let's get to the game and play!
I did a gamer treat box. This box is brand new from SVG Cutting Files. It is the perfect size for many things, but today I have two Kit Kat candy bars in there. 
Yes, two. It's hard work playing all those games to advance through all those levels.
I used a EK punch to add a decorative border to the flap and then attached the ever so cute Parakarry from the Mario game. A button placed just below the flap holds it in place and keeps the box closed.
The sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom  Funny Mail stamp set.


CONGRATULATIONS!

Having a Sand-aational Day!

Well, I hope everyone is having a Sand-sational day!

Today is my design day over at Digi My World. I am using an image from the Surfer Boy Corey digital stamp set. These little guys are great for summer season cards.

For those that don't know, I have fun coloring my images using the Silhouette software. I colored him up and then did a quick offset layer before cutting him out. 

I had extra fun playing with some digital papers for the surf board from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Spring Fling Stripes paper pack. The sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom Happy Summer stamp set. 

Hope you enjoy the sun where ever you are. Happy Crafting!

Got S'mores?


Happy Monday!  It's Summer and that usually means camping, swimming at the lake and of coarse roasting things over a fire. Who doesn't love s'mores! S'mores aren't just for camping anymore!

It's design day over at Jaded Blossom for me and I thought it would be fun to do a little summer treat bag in honor of those fire roasted treats.

I used the Fancy Topper die and paired it up with the Got S'mores? stamp set. This stamp set had everything from the little recipe to the cute cookie treat image I added on top with a little twine and button. 

Go ahead and enjoy a little S'more!

Have a crafty Day!

Jaded Blossom June release Day 5 - Score!

Happy day- it's Friday!! I have the last sneak peak for the June Jaded Blossom Release week before the big release later today. 

In case you missed my Release Day Projects, here they are:

MONDAY Yo Ho Ho
TUESDAY Bon Voyage
WEDNESDAY  Shark Bait
THURSDAY   BTS Survival Kit

Today we are using the Go Team stamp set. I think this has been long overdue so I am so glad to see this new set coming out. It will come in handy for those end of season soccer parties, football coach thank you's and treats for the little hockey players. 

Well, it's all about hockey in my house with having a son who played hockey most of his school  years and the whole family being hockey fans.

Yes, we are still watching hockey the next couple weeks with the Stanley cup play-offs happening-- Go Rangers!

OK- sorry, I got side tracked. For my project today I am so excited that Annie from SVG Cutting Files did the most adorable Hockey Player treat box for me.

I couldn't just make one, I need a whole offensive line to represent the family favorite teams.

Each little player comes with a  helmet that can slip on or off and the base is large enough to place a sentiment like I did here using the All Start sentiment from the Go Team stamp set


When you lift up the hockey player, it reveals a secret spot to put some treats. Each player measures 6" tall including the base  and 2" wide with the base slightly large.

You can really have a lot of fun customizing the faces, hair color, jersey design and breezer color ( breezers are the pants hockey players wear). 

I used the Candy Banner and charms dies along with the Sport Candies stamps to embellish the jersey on each.

These remind me of year-end trophies we would give each player at the year-end parties. 

Here is a look at the complete stamp set being featured by the Design Team today.

Go Team

Be sure to stop by the Jaded Blossom to see what the other great projects the Design Team has to share with you. 

I will be back later with one last project forthe big release.

Jaded Blossom June release Day 4 - Survival Kit

Wow- the week is flying by and we are on day four of the June Jaded Blossom release week and another peak!

School is out and it is always good to thank those that help educate and watch over the kids all year round. So today's stamp set, School Rocks is perfect for this. 

But for me, I decided to turn it around and think ahead to next year already with my special Back to School Survival kit. 

The slider box can be found in the SVG Cutting Files store here. 
I made the box and then got to work making it fun and pretty for that teenage girl that might keep this in her locker for the "just in case" moments.

I used several dies to embellish the box, yes it's a die overload day! 

The box is filled with all the necessities for an urgent situation: mints, pencils, hand cleaner, nail file, chap-stick, hair tie and chocolate!

This box is so cute with the little flap that comes over the top where I placed a small piece of velcro to keep it together. 


Here is a look at the complete stamp set being featured by the Design Team today.

Jaded Blossom June release Day 3 - Shark Bait!

Welcome back to day three of the  June Jaded Blossom release week and another peak and more stamps being released this week. 

We're going under the sea today with my shark treat box. This shark attack box is so fun and was just released today over at SVG Cutting Files

I placed a piece of acetate on the inside to cover his mouth so I didn't risk the treats falling out. You know how those little like to toss things every which way....lol!!

I used a stamp from the Under the Sea stamp set for inside the box top and the Sea Life Candies stamps for my treat bottoms. 

Take a closer look at the complete stamp sets in today's sneak peaks below.

Oh, and be sure to head over to the Jaded Blossom Blog to see what my fabulous DT friends did with these and all the stamps in this weeks release as well.

Jaded Blossom June release Day 2 - Bon Voyage

Yeah- it's day two of the June Jaded Blossom release week. Are you ready for another couple of fun stamp sets?

Today it's seems we are all about transportation with the new Beep Beep and Beep Beep Candies stamp sets. 

I am going to be on a cruise ship later this summer therefore, my project reflects just that. 
I just love this little Tug Boat treat box  (in my case, my little cruise ship) that was just released today over at SVG Cutting Files



This little boat goes together so easy with one cut for the top, one for the bottom and a couple little pieces for the embellishments. 
I added a couple flags on a skewer that I cut down for the back of my ship. The flags were made by using the JB Treat Flag die set with a sentiment from the Beep Beep stamp set. 

I wanted my boat to look like it is floating on water so I cut some strips of paper that had a wavy edge ( you could use a punch, wavy scissor, or tear for the same effect) and then trimmed them to measure the length of each side of the treat box bottom.


I attached them to the box bottom with a very thin piece of foam tape at the bottom. This allowed for the box top to slide in between the waves and the box bottom easily. 

I used the Beep Beep candies stamps to embellish the chocolate treats. The box measures 4" wide and 4" tall from the bottom to the top of the smoke tube. Remember, when you open the file, size it at 80% for these measurements. 

Here's a look at the complete stamp sets I used today.

Jaded Blossom June release Day 1 - Yo Ho Ho

Welcome to day one of the June Jaded Blossom Release week!

I am so excited about this release because all the stamps are so super cute. 
We start the week of with the Pirate Booty and Pirate Candies stamp sets. 

I decide on a lollipop cover for today. Kinda reminds me of a sail on a pirate ship.
I started with a piece of  2.5" x 7" piece of card stock paper that I scored at the half way mark on the long side. 

With the card stock folded in half, I placed the inner portion die from the Jaded Blossom Treat Bag Die making sure the bottom of the die was below the fold before cutting. That left me with a strip that now has a cute top on each short side. 
Open up the card stock so it lays flat and scored again .25" on each side of the middle fold. This makes for a flat base for my treat to sit in.

The inner beige mat is made by using the same treat tag die but I trimmed the sides to fit on the black card stock for a layered effect.

The Pirate is from the B is for Boy cricut cartridge with a bit of washi tape behind him. I stamped his face using PKS Boy Mates face stamps. 

Now that the cover was ready, I punched holes on each side of where the stick of the lollipop would be and used some twine to do a criss cross effect to look like the ties on a sail. this will hold the lollipop in place.

The sentiment from the Pirate Booty stamp set is stamped on a flag using the Jaded Blossom Treat Flag die and there you have my Yo Ho Ho treat!

Here's a look at the complete stamp sets showcased today.

Food Fare- Pizza Bread!

It's design day for me over at Digi My World. I just love the little chef images so I had to go back and use just one more.
This little chef is a clipart image from the Little Chef Pizza Boy set.This simply means the images are all pre-colored for you so they're ready to print and cut for your project. 
Of course, you can find all these images as digital stamps so you can do your own coloring.

I  have been trying to work on adding recipes to my 8x8 recipe books. Though my goal is to get all my family favorites done, I couldn't resist doing a page for this new Pinterest recipe I found a few weeks ago. It's very yummy and simple. 

The Little chef was printed and cut at 4". I also added a shadow layer so he would stand out more against the background.  the clipart really makes putting these pages together a snap. 

Have a crafty day!
