 Mini Christmas Bakers Box

mini-Christmas-Bakers-Box-b

The Mini Christmas Bakers Box is the exact same box I made for Week 3 of the 12 Weeks of Halloween.

This time I used the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper with the Christmas Tagables Photopolymer Stamp Set.

The Christmas Tagables is from a few years back …. but it’s still available (134623).

Candy Cane Lane Rectangle Coaster Calendar

 Candy Cane Lane Rectangle Coaster Calendar

rectangle-coaster-calendar-pc

The 2017 Coaster Calendar was such a hit last week that I decided to expand it to a desk size using the Rectangle Coasters.

This version is made with two coasters and can be made with the Rectangle or Square Coasters.  You will need a Crop a Dile or a tool to make a hole in the Coasters (regular hole punch will not work).

  • Click here if you would like to purchase the calendar file.
  • Click here if you would like to order 4″ Square Coasters  or Rectangle Coasters.

If you are unfamiliar with our calendar file … please watch the video before you purchase the downloadable file. You can print and use the calendar file as much as you’d like but we ask that you do NOT share the PDF. (Our price of just $2.99 has remained the same for the past 5 years.)

rectanglecoastercalendarc

To decorate the coaster calendar … I used the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and as soon as I wrapped up the video tutorial I decided to add Rhinestones to the staple instead of the Candy Cane Lane Bakers Twine.

12 Weeks of Halloween 2016 Week 3

 12 Weeks of Halloween 2016 Week 3

12weeksofhalloween2016week3

The Mini Bakers Box is the 3rd project for the 12 Weeks of Halloween.

I made it using Basic Gray card stock that measures 7-3/4 x 4-5/8 …. along with the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Because I used the Designer Series Paper to decorate the box I only used one stamp set.  It’s the Mr Funny Bones Stamp Set and If you watched my Holiday Catalog Haul video I mentioned I would be using it a lot for the greetings 🙂

To tie the box closed I used the brand new Halloween Night Bakers Twine.   I just love all our Halloween product this year and can’t wait until September 1st when the Holiday Catalog goes live!!

If you’re not a fan of Halloween I have a Christmas version of this box to share with you next week.

Coaster Calendar 

I had someone suggest that it would be a good idea to staple the Calendar months together before adding the Bow Paper Clip  … that is a great idea!! I spent hours working on getting the calendar template made and by the time it came time to decorate the Coaster Calendar I was frazzled because that’s when it hit me that we no longer carried brads.  I think it turned out cute but the calendars not being secure was driving me a little crazy.  I’m so happy that Michele suggested the stapler!!  You will see another version soon!!

Christmas Treats Box

 Christmas Treats Box

Christmas-Treats-Box-b

The Christmas Treat Box is the same box as the one I posted for Week 2 of the 12 Weeks of Halloween.

To make it you just need a piece of card stock that measures 8-1/2 x 10.  

I used the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set for the Reindeer and the greeting is from the Candy Cane Christmas Stamp set … the colors are Real Red and Crumb Cake.

The Cookie Cutter Builder Punch cuts out the reindeer … as well as the Santa from the Candy Cane Lane Bakers Box from last week (and more!) and it will be available in a Bundle with the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set on September 1st.

The Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper is an awesome pack of paper and I can’t wait to order a ton more on September 1st when the Holiday Catalog goes live. (The entire suite is awesome!!)

Candy Cane Lane Bakers Box

 Stampin’ Up! Candy Cane Lane Bakers Box

Candy-Cane-Lane-Bakers-Box-b

This is the Christmas version of Week 1 of my 12 Weeks of Halloween.

I used the Bakers Box Thinlits to make the box using Crumb Cake Card Stock.  Then decorated it with the amazing Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper

The greeting “Ho Ho Ho’ is from the Greetings from Santa Stamp Set and the Santa is from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set.

You’ll be able to purchase the Cookie  Cutter Builder Punch along with the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set as a Bundle (and there’s a Cookie Cutter Halloween Stamp Set too).  The Holiday Catalog goes live on September 1st and they should start to arrive in your mailbox very soon. 

I stamped Santa on Shimmery White card stock and colored him with the Real Red
Stampin’ Write Marker
that’s available in the Holiday Catalog as a combo pack including Crumb Cake.

You can’t see it in the picture … but I used the Wink of Stella on Santa’s beard and coat.

Chic n Scratch

10 year  Blog Anniversary

10 years ago on August 14th,2006 I started my Chic n Scratch blog and on August 16th I made my first official post.  It was one of the best decisions I ever made!!  But …  it took me hours, months and years to figure out everything … back then there wasn’t videos to walk you through every step of blogging. Or thousands of demonstrators to show you the ropes.   I remember staying up many nights until 2 or 3 in the morning … just trying to figure out the terminology … for example “what the heck was a type list and how do get a watermark on my photo”.  I always say I’m not the smartest or the prettiest in the group but I’m a hard worker, determined and persistent.     I thank God for leading me in the direction of blogging, my family for their patience & understanding and my customers for their continued support …. and my downline for choosing me to be their leader! Some days I still can’t believe I earn a living with a home based business … maybe that’s why even after all these years I know that in a blink of an eye it could be gone (if you watch the news … you get what I’m saying).   

Long story short ….. customers, demonstrator friends, downline members, my family & last but not least Stampin’ Up! I want to say THANK YOU!   I hope this journey continues for many years!!!

To celebrate my 10 year Blogging anniversary I’m giving away a $50 shopping spree to one lucky person.   To enter to win … leave a comment on this post (US citizens only). If you need some to say in your comment …. you could share how long you’ve been coming to my blog.  I will post the winner on Monday August 22nd.
