Eat Chocolate!

Sorry I haven't been able to post lately--my new computer actually started giving me fits and I have spent several FULL DAYS trying to do whatever I can to convince it to behave otherwise. If only computers could eat chocolate, I'm sure my computer and I could have reached a favorable compromise right away! Speaking of eating chocolate, here are some projects made with the new stamp set called Eat Chocolate:


These are super simple projects, although if you want to recreate them both exactly, it does take a number of punches, and the Big Shot. The great thing about that is, if you want to invest in those supplies right now, you can earn a bunch of FREE STAMPS with your purchase, during the Sale-A-Bration! Seriously, one Workshop Hostess of mine just earned nearly $150 in FREE stuff with her Big Shot purchase, and she didn't even hold a party. Email me with your Wish List, and let me figure out how we can multiply your FREE rewards during Sale-A-Bration!

The candy bar favor is made from one of the Two Tagz Sizzix die cut shapes...the die creates one score mark, and all you have to do is add one more score mark 2" from the flat end of the tag, as you can see below. That creates just enough oomph for the tag to fold up over a .49oz Hershey bar and hold it snug. (I found the candy bars in a 10pk at my corner drug store.)


This reminds me of the sweetest tag I've ever seen. It was on a box of Milk Chocolate covered Raspberry Caramels from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, which are absolutely my favorite treat in the whole wide world. My sweetie gave them to me, and on the tag he wrote: "To Kimberley, with lots of chocolate. I love you." Awwwww...makes me smile every time I look at the tag...which is every day, because I keep the tag right in front of my computer monitor!
