August Class Projects...and a Couple Bonus Ones Too!!!

Hello fellow bloggers....yes, I know it has been awhile since I have posted!! Tisk tisk on me!!!! Well, I have been busy making all sorts of projects to appease my audience!! MWAHAHAHA!!!

First up, we have a couple projects from the August Sistahood of The Traveling Stampers Class.
This month we used a few NEW STAMPS and some NEW IN COLORS!!!
This card was made using...Inspired By Nature from SU, along with Close to Cocoa & Kiwi Kiss Cardstock....

And this one used Upsy Daisy from SU, along with Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, & Baja Breeze Cardstock...let's just say the girls had fun poppin this card when I introduced them to dimensionals!!!

We also made this adorable mini milk carton using the Pink Pirouette Card Stock, alot of patience with the Scor Pal, and stamped it up with Embrace Life & Taggers Dozen, both from SU! It wasn't the easiest 3D project to build but everyone was "tickled pink" when they completed it!! These are great to fill with little chocolate kisses, or better yet...a cocoa milk bath! See recipe below.

Chocolate Lover's Milk Bath
2 cups powdered milk
1/4 cup cocoa
2 tablespoons cornstarch
optional: 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix together all ingredients and place in cello bag, seal & put in mini milk carton.

I have also been busy constructing a couple projects for some swaps as well as some upcoming just for shits & giggles gifts.
Here is a seed packet that I made for a 3D swap I am in - I used the new Under the Stars set to stamp the skeeter for the background and the bear on the label. The labels & template, I must give credit where credit is due to Katy at They are so fun and cute and allow you to add a little personal touch!! I used Close to Cocoa & Caramel to color in Mr. Bear!!!
And is my first attempt at an Altered Paint Can! I simply LUV the brown, white & blue color combo on this designer paper - this paper is from A La Carte and is titled Focaccia! When I got to punchin the holes for the handle posts with my SU 1 3/8 " punch, I decided that this paper was just to yummy to I punched circles with all the leftover paper and POPPED my can!!! The detail is a little difficult to see in the photo but it just gave it some lovely dimension!!! This can is going to be full of chocolate themed yummies that I am going to send to my best friend out in Quebec...I am thinking it should be called "The Kids Finally Went To Bed" Can - so she will be able to put her tootsies up and feast on one of her favorite things....CHOCOLATE!!! I hope she loves it half as much as I loved making it!
Well, that's it for tonight kiddies....hope you enjoyed these projects! I have this exciting idea of mini s'mores kits for next months 3D project so check back soon to see what I can come up with!
