Mini Cups

I had a customer come in wanting 12 mini cups and stands. I only had 4 ready for purchase, so I had to go into high gear to get 12 made as quickly as possible.  She really liked the green papers from the retired Wintergreen Designer Series Paper so I used up the rest of this paper to make these. 

Here they are all wrapped up, waiting for their goodies to be added.  The handmade gift tags were placed inside for the customer to fill out.

Desiree's Craftroom Update!

It's been a crazy couple of days!  I've been trying to get my inventory up so my shelves don't look so bare!  

There is a lot going on with Stampin' Up!  Be sure to log in and reserve your Stamparatus today, if you haven't already.  Remember to have your credit card on hand.  Here's the link to order yours.  On the right side, you will see a Click Here for the Stamparatus -- log in with your Stampin' Up! account.

You should also check our year end Sales Event.  Not all the items will be carried over through January, so get your list out and double check those "MUST HAVEs."

Friday, I worked on Corner Bookmarks and posted progress on Twitter and Instagram.  If you're not following me there, just look for Desiree'sCrafts.  

It's easier for me to post during the day from my phone on progress updates.  I'll try to get ahead of things and post more often here.  For today, enjoy these pretty corner bookmarks.

Stocking Stuffers, Anyone?

If you need some stocking stuffer ideas, here are the tags I made for my Hershey Nugget Trays. 

I used retired Stampin' Up! designer series papers; some current and retired stamp sets; and parts of a kit from a few years back to help with inspiration! 

I also still have some of the Candy Canes dressed up as well.  All of these are available in my store at the Branson Mill Craft Village.  Stop in and see me soon!  

And of course, I do the Hershey Bar Wraps!

If you're not local and want to get some of these or want kits so you can make them yourself, drop me a line.  

These are just some of the ideas that you can help Santa with filling up those stockings!  After all, everyone loves chocolate, right?
