Top 'O The Lolli To Ya

I have a couple of new things to share today and they have to do with 
St. Patrick's Day and Lollipops...what a combination!

First, I'm up again at The Kraft Outlet today.
The Theme: Luck 'O The Irish Challenge
Have a Kraft Coffee Bag (or two, or three) on hand and load with your gifting treats.
For the tag, I downloaded the FREE clipart from  Print onto Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock and trim with a pair of detail scissors.  Print the same image again onto a green cardstock, enlarging the image just a bit (I changed the page margins on her paper, which created a smaller and larger image).  Trim the image again and also cut out the small oval image in the center.  Layer the Lunch Bag Kraft image over the green with foam dots.
Next, attach the green oval image onto the Lunch Kraft Bag image with foam dots and then trim with Dark Green Baker's Twine  (I use a Glue Writing Pen by Martha Stewart...perfect for adding twine to any project).  I added a bit of green glitter to the shamrocks and two brown pearl embellishments to the image as well.
I took a Jenni Bowlin Vintage Black Journaling Card and distressed the front with a little spritz of Eucalyptus Walnut Ink.  I then machine stitched it onto a patterned paper, leaving a 1/2" border on each side.  Distress the edges of the patterned paper with brown ink.  Punch hole at the top of the tag and insert about 10" of Natural Brown Hemp Cording.  Tie into a loop and attach to the Kraft Coffee Bag with a Tiny Wooden Clothespin.
Next stop...I Heart Ippity
The blog has been totally must see it! 
Today is Thursday and that means a
Totally Terrific Thursday
I Heart Ippity project.
Time to fire up the Zig Markers and dust off that jar of glitter!
I love lollipops...they're whimsical and remind me of an old-fashioned game of Candy Land :) 
My daughter gets invited to a lot of birthday parties...and I'm usually the last to know.  It's great to have handmade cards, gift wrap, bags and boxes on hand at all times.  So, I decided to create a little gifting box that's the perfect size for those 'best friends' necklaces, which my daughter loves to give.
I used the 
sucks to get old 
Itty Bitty Stamp Set IPPITY-IB-010
  For my gifting box, I used a premade container by Martha Stewart (got them on clearance at Wal-Mart).
I stamped the lollipop image with Staz-On Black ink onto a scrap of October Afternoon (Modern Homemaker) patterned paper.  I then colored in the dotted portion of the image with a Basic Red ZIG marker.  For the non-dotted portion, I glittered with a bit of iridescent glitter.  I trimmed the lolli part of the pop out and glued on a plastic candy stick (but you could use the paper sticks from actual lolli pops).  I then glued on a cute ribbon bow and pearl for the center of the lolli!  Wrap a strip of patterned paper trimmed in ric-rac around the box and're done!

 Thanks for dropping in!


  1. Your little coffee bag came out wonderful Shelleye. :-) I love how you closed it with the little clothes pin. Really cute. Great inspiration!

  2. You totally ROCKED the challenge and Guest Designer spot at The Kraft Journal!! Thanks so much for being part of our team this month!!

  3. First of all, I must say the title of your blog post is very witty! I am obsessing over the st patty's creation. My husband would love this...he loves anything to do with Ireland. :). As for the lollipop box, it doesn't get any cuter than that!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
