MK Live 12/7 Stocking Stuffers

Do you have trouble coming up with cute ways to package little gifts for Stocking Stuffers? This quick and easy box can hold little chocolates, or small gift cards. It’s 3″ wide, 2″ tall, and 1/2″ thick.


I put some Mini Ghirardelli chocolates in my packages along with a business card and plan to have them handed out to my husband’s co-workers, and pop a few in my purse so I have something a little more exciting than just a business card to pass around to help promote my small business.


Don’t forget to use the current hostess code NU3P7YVK when you place your order to get a thank you card from me at the beginning of next month!

Advent Tree Calendar

As a continuation from yesterday’s video where I showed you how to make a box, today we are putting that box to use. . . 25 times!

I’ve constructed an Advent Tree Calendar out of the boxes and am so excited to show you how I did it! This is NOT my original design, I first saw these last year when my Mother gave one to me as a gift.


I love how this turned out using the Candy Cane Lane DSP and the Real Red Cardstock. I hope you join me in making one!

I used a computer program to make a template for the numbers. I printed them in red ink onto the Whisper White Cardstock. I punched them out using the 3/4″ Circle Punch, and adhered them to the red circle on each box with a glue dot.

The template for the numbers can be found HERE!

***AT THE TIME OF FILMING, THE CANDY CANE LANE DSP IS ON LOW INVENTORY*** Make sure you order some of this fantastic paper before it goes on back order! (10-13-2016)

July 2016 Paper Pumpkin Alternate

Here it is! Finally, a July 16 Paper Pumpkin Alternate. This month’s kit is called What a Gem, and it is a BLAST! I love the fun boxes, it’s different. The tassels are also super cute, but I just can’t bring myself to use that much string on tassels alone. . . So I came up with this fun and simple card to really showcase those gem stamps. What do you think?

3-fer-1 Boxes

Hey guys! I’ve been having so much fun creating samples for my Catalog Launch Party on June 18th! These boxes were a random thought I had while preparing my samples for the party. I hate wasting paper, especially when it’s such a gorgeous color, that I wanted to make some boxes with as little waste as possible. That’s when I came up with these cute 3-fer-1 boxes. I named it that because you can get three boxes from one sheet of 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock.


If you need any materials to make your own fantastic boxes, please check out my online Stampin’ Up! store where you can purchase your products 24/7 and even in your pj’s! 🙂 If you want to see more great content that isn’t shown in videos on my YouTube channel, check out and like my Facebook page!
