As I sit here contemplating another cup of coffee I thought I would post a project!
I have another video - this one hi-lights the new Mini Treat Bg Framelit Dies in the Occasions Catalogue. Now I have to admit it took me placing a few orders before I caved and bought this item. When I first saw it I thought "Life is WAY too short to be making my own little bags". Heck - there are lots of stores out there selling ready-made bags for dirt cheap, right? … and the $48.95 price tag was nothing to sneeze at - even at my demonstrator discount! Alas … it was OTHER little dies in this set that kept begging me to buy them … and I eventually caved. Have I made a treat bag yet? Nope. Have I made an adorable little card with the other pieces yet? Yup. Will I be making more adorable cards? Yup. Will I make a treat bag since I now have the die for it? Likely. Am I glad I own this set? Absolutely! Check out the video first:
Now check out my card:
Key-UTE! … and it took me about 2 MINUTES to make! I seriously made it the day of my Catalogue Launch Open House - SO quick and easy! I used the heart die three times to punch out all the hearts. I punched out a red circle using the 1/2" circle punch. I placed the white front on a black mat, figured out where I wanted the red heart to go, taped down the 1/2" circle and then taped the white layer on top. I grabbed my Just Sayin' stamp set ad stamped the sentiment in Real Red. DONE! I will be making more of these to have on hand and to sell at the Boutique. A great, fast, fun card … using the Mini Treat Bag die :)
OK - maybe I'll skip the coffee, grab some breakfast and take a nap - I don't think I'm done sleeping quite yet! Until next time, have a stampy Saturday!
