We Create Blog Hop--Yummy!

I hope you are all enjoying the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! I have so many products that I love and I try to pace myself (but we all know that doesn't work!!) The problem is that the new August to December Mini catalog goes live this Tuesday, Aug. 4 and there's so much to love in that catalog as well! Stay tuned!

This month's projects are focused on snacks and treats--who can say no to that? While I do love to bake, my work schedule makes it so there is not a lot of time to bake along with the subsequent clean up before it's time to turn in for the night. So when I need a quick treat for a neighbor or friend, the local Target is my go to for most of my favorite yummies.

I used the images from the Annual Catalog for my inspiration. You can find ideas for any project imaginable in our catalogs and I love to CASE (copy and share everything) the fantastically talented designers/artists at Stampin' Up!. I don't know how they keep coming up with these beautiful creations!
I used Playful Patterns DSP for all of these tags. I love the color combination as well as the patterns on each of the 6 x 6 sheets of paper. It is so much my style--bold colors and bold, playful patterns! Amazingly, all these patterns coordinate well together! No matter what you are celebrating, there is a pattern for it in this DSP pack.

On this one (who doesn't love some dark chocolate and salted caramel?) I used the Daisy Lane and some Pearls colored with coordinating Stampin' Blends. I also used the two Daisy punches as well as the Sprig punch.

This tag uses the Waterfront stamp set with more color Pearls, Stitched Shapes die and vellum and the Gold 3/8 Metallic-Edge ribbon colored with the Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blend marker. (More salted caramel, this time with milk chocolate!)

 The last one uses the Stitched Shapes die as well as the Classic and Timeless Label punches and some 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon colored with Purple Posy Stampin' Blend. The stamp sets were Timeless Tulips and Dressed to Impress. A few extra colored Pearls add a little extra shine and texture. (Brownie M & M's? I mean, come on!!)

I was so grateful that when I went to Target, they had all of my favorites in the most perfect colors to coordinate with my planned DSP--can you say serendipity?

Well, on to the next friend in our hop, Cheryl! I know you'll enjoy her project. Don't forget to leave some comments! Everyone can use a little love!

Sending virtual hugs and wishing you lots of yummy treats in your future!



  1. I love all of your ideas! These are super cute!!!

  2. Nice! I often don't have the energy to bake goodies, much less decorate them so adorably, so pre-packaged treats help me to get the job done! Thanks for sharing these playful tags! 😉

  3. Isn't it great that the catalog has such great ideas to inspire us? A cute tag on such a tasty treat is the perfect idea. Its too hot to bake anyway...Right?

  4. Such a cute idea! I never think to decorate treats like that, but these tags could be made ahead of time, and added as needed! Love it!

  5. Wonderful gift ideas to brighten someone's day.
