Pick your Poison.....

Hi Everyone! Candace and Michelle here..
Before we get to Kate's project today we want to share that this is Kate's last project here with Jaded Blossom. Kate has decided to step down from her design team duties so she can spend more time with her family. But don't worry, I'm sure we will still get to see her fabulous projects in the Facebook Group from time to time. We wish Kate the best of luck!
We will miss her, her awesome coloring and fabulous projects!
~Candace and Michelle


Hello Everyone... It's Kate with you today with my last post for Jaded Blossom.

The past 2 years have been Amazing especially working with Candace and Michelle and there Super Talented Design Team.  Unfortunately, with 4 kids wanting this Mama's constant attention lately, I felt it better to just step down from the Design Team.

For my last project today, I made a little centerpiece.

I got these bottles from Hobby Lobby
I cut the pumpkin and bats using Vinyl, yes our awesome dies can cut through vinyl as well as felt in case you didn't know.

here is a close up

Candy Caramel Apples

Happy Monday! Tanya from Crafting on Caffeine and today is my Day here. I am excited to show you this yummy treat!

I made my own Caramel Apples using the Apple Die and the Sign Post both from the Fall Dies Set. I cut the Apple die 3x for each apple. then I used Glossy Accent to make the apple shiny. 
The treats inside the bag are Caramel Apple chocolate cups. I thought it was great with this treat but not sure about the taste.

Gummy Bear Treat

Hello! Mel from Doxie Mel Designs with a easy to create treat today. The container and wooden scoop are from Jaded Blossom. The wooden scoop has a metal loop "screw eye" from the hardware store that you can hand screw into the handle. I picked up a package of 10 for around a dollar at Home Depot.  I like to tie the scoop to the treat as I am the type of person that will lose things quickly. To go along with the gummy bear theme, Mr. Gummy Bear is NEW from SVG Cutting Files and will be at their store this Friday! The bear is from "Beary Sweet" collection.

Sentiment- Kind Thanks

Halloween Matchbook Treats and Tutorial

Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug and I am sharing some fun Halloween treats along with a short tutorial. These are super easy to make using the Jaded Blossom Dies and they would be so cool to hand out to kids.

I kept the design simple so you can whip these up in no time. You can also change up the colors and add any kind of candy packets you wanted such as M&M's or Reeces Pieces. I chose to work with Skittles.

Cut black cardstock at 3 X 7 1/2 inches
Score at 3 inches and 6 1/2 inches
Place your candy in the cover tucking it under the 1 inch flap. Then you will staple the flap closed catching the candy wrapper in between. Make sure to staple towards the bottom so you are able to tuck your flap in, but also make sure it's high enough so your mat piece covers the staple.

Now you are going to cut your mat pieces and add the decorations.
This turned out to be the PERFECT size to use with the Card Mat Dies.

Cut white with Card Mat Die
Cut second mat at 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 inches. 
(I wanted the stitching from the Card Mat Die to show, so I cut mine slightly smaller than the 2 1/2)
For flap cut a 3/4 X 2 3/4 inch

Next I cut out the spiders and webs using the Halloween Dies and glued them on.
The sentiment mat was cut using the Mini Tag Dies 2 and it was matted in black with a
3/4 X 2 3/4 inch piece of black. The sentiment is stamped from the Halloween Candy Wraps.
To finish, I added a punched web to the inside of the cover. I glued it to the candy wrapper (this way it will fit under the flap) placing it under the flap.

And there you have it!
I hope you all liked my project and have inspired you to try  these for yourself!
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

You're in my Club!

Hey Everyone!

Jamie here to share a card I made with this Month's Spotlight Set... Game Night!

I used a few of the Card Mat Dies to create this card, along with a sentiment and candies stamp from Game Night!

I took some real playing cards that I bought from the dollar store and cut them with the smaller square Card Mat Die to make the "hand".  Then I used a candies stamp to look like a card hand holder.

Spider Trick or Treat

Hello Everyone! Mel from Doxie Mel Designs  stopping by with a "Spider Treat".  I found these gummy spiders and slid them in a favor bag from Jaded Blossom.  The top of the bag is the NEW topper Die, Scallop Slider & Topper Die.

Here is a close up of the topper. The spider print from the Halloween Candy Wraps is layered behind the spider.. just to add a little more to the spider theme. The web is from the Halloween Dies and cuts so beautifully!  The sentiment, included on Halloween Candy Wraps, is stamped on a banner from Mini Tag Dies 2.

Pawsing to say thanks!

Hello everyone! It is Crystal here from Crystal's Creative Corner and today is my Jaded Blossom Design Team day!
I have a little gift that my Yorkie, Boomer, gave to his groomer to share with you today. ;)
We travel to North Carolina for our vacations a few times a year...and we take our "puppy son" with us! We found an exceptional groomer there and every time we visit he gets the best snuggles, and the best doggie treatment! So I thought I would make her a little treat from Boomer!

I used the following Jaded Blossom products:
The Yorkie Dog is from the Cricut cartridge Four Legged Friends.
Here is a close up of the topper:

Have a great crafty day!

No Lion!

Happy Monday! Barb with BugBites here with a quick project using a treat that I found when on vacation a couple weeks ago in Whistle, BC. 

I first discovered the delicious Lion bar several years ago when I was in London. Have only seen them a few times in the U.S. so I was thrilled to find it on this recent trip. It's like a 100,000 bar but better!

I did a simple tag using the Jaded Blossom Treat Tag die and the Go Wild Stamp set and tied it with a simple bow to the chocolate bar. all the details are on my blog.

Have a crafty day!
