Decorated chocolates gift idea using Stampin' Up! Lattice Bigz Die

Here's an "easy as" project which was an idea from Teresa Dabrowski who presented this great project at the Sydney Heartfelt event last month. It's basically a chocolate wrapped in a lattice bigz die square using glue dots to adhere it to the chocolate and a bit of "bling" on the top. Most of the bling is using Stampin' Up! punches, glimmer paper and ribbon but there's some little bits that I used from my stash like the pieces of glittery mesh that suited this project. Only a word of warning to chocolate lovers like myself I think I ate as many as I decorated!! lol but I think these gifts really step up a boring box of chocolates and are probably good for people watching their waistlines because they might not be so tempted to pull apart the pretty wrapping! Only twenty sleeps now till "Ho Ho"..........Sue :)

Stampin' Up! 3D Christmas Projects with Tulle and Glimmer Paper

Well this is my take on the Stampin' Up Christmas ornament featured on the cover of the Holiday Catalogue - very much the same except I opted for Espresso and Crumb Cake colours instead of the traditional red and green. The new silocone mat available is terrific and a must for this type of project.

This banner was inspired by a project from the Sydney Heartfelt event which one of my fellow demonstrators had made, I know it was one of two talented ladies but I can't remember which one actually made it, so thank you to either Nikki Stalker or Tracey Eaton, I'd rather mention both ladies than make the mistake of giving credit to the wrong one! I just liked it sooo much I had to make one for myself which is now hanging in my craft room. I am very happy to say I am finally recovering from my flu/lurgy bug illness and my mojo and energy is finally returning. Geee whiz it has put me about three weeks behind so boy have I got some catching up to do! Crikey it's only 22 sleeps away now!!!!!!!!!!!.............cheers Sue :)
