Wow! Yesterday was CRAZY!! Hence the reason for the late blog post! I thought I was done shopping, but my husband and I found out that it was not the case! I thought he bought some gifts online and he thought I did! Ooops! Then, after I shopped, I found some gifts that were hidden LOL!! Needless to say, the kids are making out like bandits this year! Thank goodness for curbside pick up at all of my favorite stores! That made shopping so much easier and less stressful for me during COVID. I hadn’t done much curbside shopping because for some reason I thought it would be like Walmart, where I had to schedule a time (most of the time for the next day), but these were desperate times! As it turned out, the purchases were ready within 2 hours! These local shops are really working hard to get your business, so please help them out by buying local!
If I was a drinker, I would have torn into Monday’s project, LOL! But I’m more of a sweets person (not sure my waistline likes that!) so I’m more apt to tear into today’s project!
For this project, I folded a piece of Early Espresso cardstock around a small package of Nutter Butters, burnished the folds with my bone folder, then layered and embellished the front.
Here I used Whisper White, however, the Whisper White line is retiring. The mill that manufactured the cardstock closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Stampin’ Up! moved quickly to find a new manufacturer that had similar qualities in their cardstock. We are unsure when they will release the new Basic White line at this time, but it should be arriving soon! A good substitute would be to use Very Vanilla in it’s place on this project.
I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the sentiments to keep it from being too flat. I also used two different browns for the cookies (Crumb Cake & Sahara Sand) because who has ever baked cookies and they all come out the exact same color? Yeah, not me!
Each product I used for this project is shown below. Simply click on the picture and it will take you to the product. Don’t forget to add me (BrandyAnn Lozoya – Crystal Lake, IL) as your Demonstrator if you don’t already have one!
