A very warm welcome to Stop no. 10 on the Stampin’ Addicts New Catalog Mega Hop…you have just arrived here from Barbra’s blog where she showed you great ideas for the beautiful set Come to Bethlehem...I have a link at the end of this post so that you can hop over to the next blog…keep hopping and eventually you will go full circle…

The set I chose to use here is Got Treats which you can find on pg 55 of the Catalog – it features 10 stamps and some are designed to work with that fab new Mini Milk Carton die…please read on to see what I did with it and to find out details of some cool blog candy…and when you come back Monday you will find out who won the blog candy plus get more close up photos, templates and how-tos for my items…Got Treats definitely makes me think of yummy goodies and so for my first project…

I decided to make a Mini Milk Carton caddy containing 4 milk cartons…there are stamps in this set that are designed for labelling the top of the milk carton to give the recipient an idea on how to open them…and guess what’s inside of them?  Mmm…scrumptious Hershey’s Cookie’s n Creme Kisses…I chose them because their wrappers were blue and it suited my theme BUT oh my…they are now my favorites…

Yes…ummm…Christmas in July?  Well, I came up with a punch Penguin a couple of days ago that I made using the new Owl die and so that got my cogs working…besides…you can’t start on holiday projects too soon…and living in Central Texas has me dreaming of cold weather right about now!

My caddy was a breeze to making using Brushed Silver cardstock and Island Oasis paper from the Summer mini which I thought ironic for a winter themed project and it holds 4 of the Milk Cartons which are made from Shimmery White cardstock and are decorated with snowflakes and the new rhinestones (pg 188)…what a perfect treat for a teacher or co-worker…and you have plenty of time to make ’em if you start soon!   And there is my cute little punch Penguin…love that guy…

When you come back on Monday you will find a printable tutorial and template here on how to make the caddy that holds 4 mini milk cartons, more photos of it and my cute Punch Penguin…

Next I was trying to think of how to use those stamps a bit differently, other than for attaching to treats…so I decided to use them to make some cute 3″ x 3″ cards with co-ordinating envelopes AND a gift box to present them in…here is the box that houses them…

I just love Early Espresso and can’t stop using it – it’s my new favorite color…and the swirly stamp I used on the top?  From one of my new favorite sets – Elements of Style (pg 133)…on Monday I will have the printable tutorial and template on how to make that box and close ups of the cards and envelopes inside of it...speaking of which, here they are…

Cute, eh?   Those little cards are very fun to make…you could make a box full of cards as a cute Back to School teacher gift which would go down very well – and those Mini Envelopes?  You can find them on pg 171 of the Catalog and all use a little piece of Designer Series Papers on the flaps – this is a very cute and easy little extra to do…

And so on to my final project -I decided to use the co-0rdinating stamp set On a Pedestal (pg 55) to create a decorated Tea Tin – these sets go together so well and it’s very hard not to use that beautiful cake stand so I just had to…the photo really doesnt do it justice…

These tall tins are just perfect for packaging candies, chocolate dipped pretzel rods, cookies…any treat you have in mind…and for just around $1 each they are a very affordable way to present your gift…

I used papers from Blushing Bride Patterns to decorate my tin and accented with Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry and that GORGEOUS new Crochet Trim Ribbon…and I used the new Pearls to decorate the pedestal and the lid…I love pinks and browns together and this tin would make another great Back to School new teacher gift.

Don’t forget to come back on Monday to find printable tutorials and templates and to find out who won my blog candy…speaking of Blog Candy…leave me a comment to let me know which project you like the most and you will be entered into a drawing to win a kit of supplies for you to make your own cute Milk Carton Caddy filled with Mini Milk Cartons…

I hope you enjoyed your visit – you are now leaving to visit the extremely talented Barbara and see what she has come up with using the cool set Morning Cup on her blog at Creative Stampin Spot by clicking HERE – enjoy!

  • July 30, 2010 at 3:50 pm

    Your mini cards and coordinating envelopes are so adorable. I guess I need to start thinking about back to school gifts since its right around the corner for us.

  • July 30, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    Oh my gosh, these are just too good! I love all three for different reasons, but I have a love of the little cards! You caught my eye with the shamrock and my birthday is St. Paddy’s Day! I have to subscribe now for the tutorials on Monday! Gotta check out the penguin tutorial in a bit. Thanks for sharing all your creativeness! I have a load of the tea canisters I can now decorate!

    Love them all Sarah but I am partial to tea so my favorite is the altered tea tin. Great job!

  • July 30, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    I love all of your projects, so much that I can’t even pick a favorite. The tea tin is so perfect for a small gift.

  • July 30, 2010 at 7:23 pm

    Those 3×3 cards are adorable, especially with the matching envelopes! Great work!

  • July 30, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    I loved all of the projects, but since I have to choose a favorite, I’ll go with the note cards in the cute little box. When I taught school, I always needed note cards, so I know that is a much appreciated gift…but so is the chocolate in the cute cartons and the surprises in the tea tin!!! Where did you get the tea tin? Same place as the nugget box? Thanks for sharing great projects!

  • July 30, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    Great projects. I love the mini milk carton and carrier.

  • July 30, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    Wow, loved all of your projects. The milk cartons and holder are great! I loved your box and the cards — very, very nice. Looking forward to the tutorials. TFS

  • July 31, 2010 at 3:43 am

    The milk carton is the BEST. I want to use it for teacher gifts. What a great idea!

  • July 31, 2010 at 6:49 am

    How can one choose? Must say love that little penguin, the note cards are wonderful, perfect to pop in someone’s lunch kit. Great Projects

  • July 31, 2010 at 6:57 am

    Your work is just lovely. So hard to choose a favorite, but I am really drawn to the sweet little cards. Can’t wait to try them. Thanks so much for sharing!

  • July 31, 2010 at 8:30 am

    Yes, same place as the nugget tins :-)

  • July 31, 2010 at 2:39 pm

    I think the 3×3’s would be great as a hostess gift too.

  • July 31, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    Wow, Sarah, you did a wonderful job! Love the penguin idea, and the bling on the snowflakes on the milk cartons. The box is BEAUTIFUL and the cards with matching envies are SO cute! I’m with Kim, I think that would make a great hostess gift!

  • August 1, 2010 at 12:11 pm

    It was hard to choose, but I think the mini milk carton caddy has to be my favorite. Anything containing chocolate will win every time!!! TFS & looking forward to the tuts on Monday.

  • August 1, 2010 at 1:06 pm
