Peachy Keen Farewell Hop

Hi Everyone !!!
If you just came from Melissa's blog you are in the right spot! If not you can start HERE
This will be my last post as a Peachy Keen designer !!
I have enjoyed designing with their super cute stamps this past year and HONORED to be chosen as a designer for 2012 !
I want to thank everyone at Peachy Keen, Kathy is amazing and Angelica who was the DT coordinator for most of my term, very sweet ladies !!!
Most of you know this past year I started my own party favor company, Jaded Blossom, so that is why I have decided to not reapply, so I can focus on this new venture.
However, Peachy Keen will not be far since they manufacture my products ♥
We were asked to pick 3 of our favorite projects from this past year...yes that was a super hard task lol but I did narrow it down.

Love this one, my toddler asked me why the orange had a tongue.... at that moment I knew it had to be a craft project ! lol

Thank you again to Peachy Keen for allowing me to design for you this past year I LOVED it !!!
Peachy Keen is soooo great they are allowing me to give away one of my FAVORITE stamp sets and yes it is hard to choose but this has been my "go to" set !! LOVE it !
 I chose wide eyed kids !!!
You must leave a comment and a way to contact you on this post ~

Christmas Party Juice boxes

HI Everyone !!!
I had posted on Facebook that I was making these again this year and some were curious about the measurements so I thought I would post them for anyone to use.
I buy the juices boxes from Sam's club and then measured the box to create my own wrap.
This year I made snowmen !! I used Jaded Blossom stamps for the "brrrr" a punch for the eyes, and holly and then the Silhouette store for the hat and nose ♥

Ti make the wrap to fit these juice boxes is
cut cardstock 7 1/2" x 6"
score at 2", 3 1/2", 5 1/2", 7"
turn once and score again at 4 3/4"
then cut the bottom lines add terrifically tacky tape and fold
These are the ones I made last year
You can see the ENTIRE post and more pics HERE
These I made for the Easter Party, more pics and details HERE

Hope you enjoyed them Thanks so much for stopping by !!!

Peachy Keen Challenge

Hi Everyone !!!
If your looking for the COOKIE Hop please click HERE ~~
This weeks challenge is to create an ornament.
I used vinyl and a penguin from SVG Cutting files, the snow was hand cut and the snowflake from Winter Lace Cricut cartridge.
When stamping on vinyl I recommend the Staz-on ink.... its the only one I have found that works well. Also used a jewel, ribbon and twine from the Twinery.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team did and join in the challenge HERE

I used floor wax and glitter to coat the inside of the ornament... I made a video a few years ago on how if you'd like to learn how click HERE

Cookie Blog Hop & Giveaway !!!

HI Everyone !!!
If you just arrived from Vanessa's blog then you are in the right spot.
If not click HERE to start at the beginning
Today its all about Cookies !!!!
So I have made a cute gift bag for the cookies my daughter Lily & Poppy made.
(They are 4 and 7)
For these cookie bags I used:
An SVG from SVG Cutting Files called "Cookies for Santa"
Jaded Blossom Fancy Topper Die
Jaded Blossom Gusset Bags
Jaded Blossom Flag die 1 and 2
Peachy Keen Faces- Wide Eyed Kids
Trendy Twine- New pink
and some glossy Accents
with Echo Park patterned paper

My daughter has made these every year because it is something EASY that a kid can do!
I'm sure some of you have seen them before, but everytime I post them theres always someone who hasn't~
So you will need 3 ingredients: Rolo's, Pretzels, and Pecans.
Set oven to 350
First lay down mini pretzels on a silpat (or wax paper)
next place a rolo in the center of the pretzel (Rold Gold brand is my fav!!)

Put them in the oven for approximately 4-5 minutes until you see them starting to melt.
Take them out and place a pecan on the top and gently push into the Rolo... let cool
last step enjoy your turtles !!!!!
In my project I used the super cute stamp set from Jaded Blossom "Milk and Cookies"
So today I will be giving one away so you can dress up your own treats !!
***You will need to be a follower of my blog**
