Berry Delightful Strawberry Treats for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I really like making little treats and gifts for my friends and family! Delivering treats has been a much needed “get out of the house activity”. I look forward  to driving around town and leaving little surprises in mailboxes. I made two different versions of today’s project. One stands upright and the other folds over to reveal the surprise treat when opened. This little treat can be given any time of year or you can make it to give out for Valentine’s Day… just change the sentiments.

One of my favorite treats is chocolate covered strawberries. (Oh yum!) While this isn’t the real thing, it’s a fun alternative with a much longer shelf life. Both versions have a slide out box which holds 3 chocolate hearts/strawberries.

I made the stand alone version first then decided to tweak it so it would fold over and open like a card. All inclusive! You can add a message on back of the stand up version if you want. Here’s a look at each project.

This version is just 1/4″ shorter and has an extra score line.

I added the little cut out for a sneak peek at the sweet treat!

I used the Berry Blessings Stamp Set and the lovely Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. This exclusive bundle is FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. It was top on my wish list!!! Here’s a look at the set.

This set coordinates with another stamp bundle in the new Mini Catalog, the Sweet Strawberry Bundle. I love that this bundle includes the Strawberry Builder Punch!

The Sweet Strawberry stamp set is the sweetest stamp set ever! Full of plump strawberries and all-occasion sentiments, the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set is perfect for handmade cards, scrapbook pages, and more. It’s a set you can use year-round—change the colors of the foliage images to match the season, and use the sentiments anytime. This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set; it allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. This is a Distinktive** stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images. Here’s a close up of the realistic looking strawberry!

I hadn’t intended to create my own box for today’s project as I was planning to use the new Love You Always Treat Boxes (#154285) found on page 11 in the new Mini Catalog. However, those boxes were much larger than I realized!  While they are great and would be perfect to hold 2 (large) actual chocolate covered strawberries (they are food safe!), it took about 20 of my little “strawberries” to fill the box! I wanted to make several of these treats to give so I opted to make my own box. I’m going to be totally honest here….While I love how these turned out, it took me several attempts (and a few wasted sheets of cardstock) to get the measurements and scores just right for what I wanted!!! That being said, please check back tomorrow and I’ll have the measurements and photo tutorial for you (and possibly some of my “other” versions. LOL).

Which one do you prefer…The stand up or fold over version? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below!

Celebration Labels Tags for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Tag, You’re It” – tags or 3D projects to get you inspired for the upcoming gift season. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I am loving the versatility with the Celebration Labels Dies! I paired the dies with the Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder Punch to make these tags for some homemade applesauce and apple bread.

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos and Celebration Labels tag ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
One of my favorite fall traditions is to pick my own apples from the orchard then come home and make all kinds of apple recipes! My family loves my apple bread. I decided to take a little (6 1/2 hour) drive to personally deliver some to my adult children last weekend. (*The fall foliage made for a beautiful trip north!)

I also made some bread for my sister and coordinated her tag to match the bread plate.

The Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper I used on each of the tags is part of the 15% OFF sale this month! These patterns can be used for many different occasions throughout the year!

These tags are all about layering! The Celebration Labels Dies have 5 different sizes. They’re perfect to create handmade projects for any occasion. You can click HERE to see some cards I shared previously using these dies.

Here’s a tip to extend your dies for even more layering possibilities! Cut out one of the dies then line up the notches in your paper trimmer and cut in half. Adhere to the top and bottom of the layering die and add a strip across the middle.

Here’s the details if you’d like to make these tags. (FYI…I’m planning to use the pumpkin from Harvest Hellos to make tags for Pumpkin Bread for Thanksgiving!)
