2nd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop! I am so glad you stopped by and are following along the hop. This month our theme is Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog, Katrina's Kreative Heart (Katrina Wolfe) or you may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to log so you see all the amazing projects. At the moment, you are visiting Katrina Wolfe.

As most of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I am so honored to be able to participate in this hop as Breast Cancer awareness and prevention and finding a cure are pretty important to me. I have lost friends to this horrific disease and I have watched friends fight and win a courageous battle only to turn around and have to battle complications related to their fight. I know in my heart it's just a matter of time for that break through to find the ultimate cure, but we all must do our part, so, I have decided to take a stand against this disease by holding a Stamp Out Breast Cancer Class next week, featuring the Ribbon of Courage stamp set. and I am donating my sales commission for the month of October to Breast Cancer Research in order to do my part. And, for every order of $25 or more using the October Host Code, will receive 3 free card kits in the mail and you will be entered into the drawing for the $15 Host Rewards at the end of the month.

Today, I want to share with you another card I made featuring the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and coordinating dies.

I love the encouraging sentiments in this stamp set. I used the beautiful In-colors Powder Pink and Berry Burst. I think the Berry Burst adds just the right amount of pop to this card.
I hope you are enjoying the hop. I want to thank you for taking the time to hop along with us, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss.

Painted Harvest Mason Jar Gift

Good Morning and Happy Saturday! I have a really cute project for you today that will make an adorable little gift for a co-worker, teacher, bus driver etc. It's a cute little mason jar filled with yummy peanut butter M & M's!
I love the Fall colors of these tasty little morsels. They're actually too pretty to eat but I thought they would make adorable gifts and craft fair items. And the best part...they're too stinkin' easy! I just wrapped a piece of the Old Olive mini Chevron Ribbon around the lid and tied it into a bow. 

I then die cut a piece of Very Vanilla using the largest stitched circle die from the Stitched Shapes collection and stamped the foliage from the Painted Harvest stamp set, with Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive inks all around the die cut circle and added the sentiment and acorn with with Early Espresso. I added this to the top of the mason jar with a few Glue Dots.

I hope you've enjoyed today's project. I would love to hear your thoughts.

Spooky Cat Pizza Box

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I know, this week is off to a bumpy start and well today won't be any different. Let's just say, I am soooo grateful for my crafty friends and the solace of my craft room because my real job is testing my strength and resilience. Now don't get me wrong, I love my real job of Clinical Informatics; however, whenever there is an implementation of brand new can rest assured there is going to be something you discover that doesn't work as it should and it doesn't matter how much testing you did before go-live...well today is the day. We go live with our brand new Emergency Room documentation fingers crossed all goes well and those things you know are going to go wrong aren't anything too difficult to overcome....Is it too late to go back to bed? Ok, well enough about all that.
Today, I have a cute little treat box for you using the new stamp set, Spooky Cat that goes live Friday! Anyone else doing the happy dance? I know that I am. Anyway, I used the coordinating DSP, Spooky Night and stamped the cute little owl onto the tree branch over the moon and cut it into a 3" square. I layered it onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut 3.25" square and adhered it to the pizza box top.To complete it, I took a strand of the mini black sequins and added to the top with a glue dot and then tied a bow using the beautiful black crochet trim and added that also with a glue dot. I then stamped the Happy Halloween in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock cut .5" x 3" and bannered one end and slipped it under the crochet trim with a glue dot.

I thought this came out so cute and it was really easy to make.. It would make a great treat box for the small packages of candy corn or a few small snack size Hershey bars. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Now, I have just one other it just me, or does anyone else think of Phoebe on the '90's show Friends and her song, "Smelly Cat" every time you say Spooky Cat? Please tell me I'm not alone here!
And don't forget, today is Tuesday for Tips! Here is a quick video on how to clean and keep clean your Stampin' Scrub.
 I hope you find this helpful.

Quick, Easy and Adorable Fall Treat Holder

Good Morning and Happy Thursday! I hope you're all having a fantastic day.
Today I want to share with you an easy, quick and absolutely adorable treat holder perfect for a Fall occasion.
This little treat holder was pretty easy to make, using the Wood Crate die and some Crumb cake cardstock. To begin, I cut 2 pieces of of the Wood Crate out of Crumb cake cardstock and put them together creating the crate. To determine the size for the rest of the treat holder, I measured the base of the crate and came up with 1.5" x 3.25" and used those measurements to determine the remainder of the treat holder. Using those measurements, I cut a 12" x 12" piece of Crumb cake cardstock 3.25" x 12" and scored it at 5.25" and 6.75" and adhered the base of the crate between the two score lines. I then folded the ends up and placed them together and using the Classic Label punch, I punched the "handles".
I then created a belly band using a 12" x 12" piece of the Painted Autumn DSP cut 1.75" x 8" and wrapped around the bottom portion of the treat holder and adhered with Fast Fuse. I punched a scrap piece of Daffodil Delight with the Daisy Punch x 2 and sponged the petals with the Daffodil Delight ink and a sponge dauber and put them together and added a piece of Early Espresso punched at .75" to the center. I added this to the treat holder with a Dimensional. and stamped the greeting from the Seasonal Lantern stamp set (available September 1st) with Early Espresso ink onto a piece of Very Vanilla cut 0.5" x 3.75" and bannered the ends with my paper snips and added it to the treat holder with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish the project off, I used a added some Bulls-eye Caramels (a favorite in our house) to a cello bag and placed into my crate, and to tie the handles, I used a piece of the .25" Copper Trim and frayed it out a bit (I think next time, I will pull it and fray it before I tie it) 
And that completes today's project. I really hope you enjoyed it. Please leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts.
