New Year's Eve Jaded Blossom Guest Designer, Katie Jr

Happy New Year's Eve! I hope everyone is having a fun & safe day! I am excited that Candace & Michelle allowed me to be the Jaded Blossom Guest Designer for today. I love Jaded Blossom stamps & dies. They are fun, practical & easy to use! 

My project features the Jaded Blossom "Happy New Year!" stamp set & the Wine Tag Die to create New Year's Eve treats. I saved toilet paper rolls & twist ties from packages so I could assemble the treat holders. I used white and silver sparkled blue tissue paper as wrapping. The treat holders are stuffed with mints, chocolate candies & confetti. The confetti is actually the Happy New Year's Eve Candy Stamps! How fun is it to rip open the treat holders to have candies & fun confetti circles spill everywhere! 

The wine tag added some much needed pizzazz to bottle of sparkling cider. Blue, Purple & Silver made a fun color combo for this festive set.

Hope you enjoyed the post! May 2015 be filled with lots of crafting!

The Happy Baker!
We have all seen the cool treats that Candace is always making and since it is her special day, "Birthday calories don't count!"
I was originally going to put sprinkles in the tubes but decided on these new carrot cake M&M's.  The sprinkles will be in a goody bag for later use.

Here is a close up of my sentiment and double tube holder:
  Here is the recipe:
Mini Tag die from Jaded Blossom

AND since you get DOUBLE THE FUN on this blog 
Here is what Katie Jr / Katie M created...
Candace has FABULOUS taste. I wanted to make a card that implied what a cool cat she is :) 
Inside her greeting card I included a
I hope the next time she purchases her favorite drink (which is pictured here with her goodies and is also my favorite drink) she will have as big a smile on her face as the gray cats do!!
 AND since she loves traveling I made her these LUGGAGE TAGS to help distinguish her bags from all the rest. They are a happy orange color and each have a nerdy mustache message!
I "mustache" You To Let Go Of My Bag
I "mustache" You To Put My Bag Down

(TAGS: Jaded Blossom Treat Tag Die & Mustache Dies)
