I love making these personalized coffee treat cups.  One was previously posted on Monday, April 7, 2014. This is a project from one of my very favorite company's: The collection called Good Day at the Office Kit found here. The ffinished Coffee treat cup size: 7" tall x 3-3/4". Paper used is My Little Shoebox  Cherry Delight - Happy Times (paper is from 2012), White Card stock for all the lids, Chocolate Brown is used for the sleeve.
 See how cool these personalized coffee treat cups are.................the personalized portion is a FREE SVG cut from when they had Candice's Birthday Blog Hop a while back - see the original posting here..  The Sleeve (is from the Good Day at the Office Kit from  I was able to ungroup the original file and add any letters I needed for the personalization - cool, eh? Unfortunately, I was not happy with the way the Starbuck's logo cut so I ended up doing a search and printing out the logo which looks nice.
 Treats of coffee candy inside - it does hold a whole bunch..........

Cherry Delight Accordion Circle Card

Another favorite card of mine to make for a birthday celebration.  papers used: My Little Shoebox Cherry Delight - Happy Times and Charming (paper is from 2012) and card stock sticker sheet.  Base of the card is Core-dinations Pure Chocolate Canvas Texture Card Stock, Stampin-Up Very Vanilla card stock. Love that pink and brown color combination! The die used to make this cards is Elizabeth Crafts Accordion Circle Card die: cut 3 times. Once in the Chocolate card stock, then in Vanilla card stock, then in the My Little Shoebox Cherry Design paper.  Some trimming is needed to make the mats since it is not part of the die. Here is the card totally flat before the centers if the notches are connected.
Here is the card when the notches are connected and standing up:
On the left side: 3" circle cut in Vanilla card stock by using my Silhouette to make this custom cut. Card Stock sticker sheets embellish this first circle.

In the center section: Tessler Crafts Ellentina Cutting Happy Birthday Die cut using the Vanilla Card stock:
La-la Land Crafts Cherry Blossom die using card stock vellum and Memory Box Woodland Branch die in brown card stock. Adding the adhesive pearl int he center is the finishing touch.
On the right section: this sticker in positioned on a 3" Circle in Vanilla card stock:

Halloween Witch Boot

Some Witch boots for Halloween. These are quite large when they are finished.  Finished size is 8" x 9" x 2".  It is a SVG cut file from the on line Silhouette Store.  You can find all the info along with a tutorial on how to assemble this boot in their store link.
See the boot and how cool is that?
Love this bat with red adhesive rhinestone eyes.  He is attached with some black wire.  Wrap the wire around a small paint brush for it to get that "curl" look. Follow the instructions to attach to the tip of the boot with a hot glue gun from the inside.
See the lace up details: Edge of the boot contrast has orange Stickles
Another view: ends of the 1/4" satin black ties are using a 3/4" circle punch and a 1/2" circle punch.  finish ti off by adding some orange Stickles.
Here's a side view showing the black web and heel:
View from the top - I chose to use ribbon for the top of the shoe instead of the Halloween pumpkin boarder that came with the file.  I used my sewing machine to gather the 1-1/2" ribbon, the attached it to the top of the boot using sticky tape (which still did not hold it............grrr............). Black tissue to cover the candy inside:
Some of the candy from inside the boot:
