One of the cutest treat boxes returns in the 2019 Holiday Catalog. And it’s miniaturized!!
The Mini Curvy Keepsakes box is a must have especially if you loved the original that we carried a few years back. I dove right in and created four adorable, fall-themed treat boxes with this die set and some coordinating new products. One box is exclusive to the September Stampin’ Anonymous Tutorial (which you can either purchase or get free when you place an order though me this month). The other three (along with one that my friend Susan designed) are what I am sharing with you today!
I demonstrated two of them from start to finish in my Wednesday, September 4th Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook. I then uploaded the recorded version of my Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products lists below the photos, and then let me know if you have any questions.
The sweet pumpkin box is perfect for Fall in general. Wouldn’t these be cute at each place setting for Thanksgiving?

These last photos are the other two boxes I showed off – my third design (the broom) and the one my friend, Susan designed (the apple).
I just HAVE to show off my boys (again). Hahaha! This week was their first back for the 2019-20 school year.
Nicholas on the left is in 8th grade and is taking his first year of Spanish this year. He’s a percussionist in Band IV and will be performing with his Jazz Band this winter in Disney World! This is his 8th year of piano lessons. He is also in Cross Country again and Gymnastics (his first year and they put him in the most advanced class!). He has the busiest schedule in our family but loves the challenge. He even wants to find employment when he turns 14 this October. This kid has ambition. That’s for sure.
Luke on the right is in 7th grade and is loving his classes this year, too. He is in Choir again (hoping this shy kiddo will try out for some solo parts because his voice is heavenly). He is also in Music Composition, Creative Innovations, and Drawing (he is considering being an architect someday). He’s got a intensely creative mind, so I’ll be looking for some after-school opportunities for him. He’s not into competitive team sports, but he is very excited for Tornado Force this winter where he will be able to stay after school to learn about weight lifting and resistance training.
They both will continue with Boy Scouts and are excited that we will be going to Open Gym on Friday nights at Nick’s gymnastics facility. It will be a great way to end the week if we can keep it up.
So far they are enjoying being back at school. Routine is good, and they missed their friends. And… Dad is back to dealing with them needing the bathroom at the same time he does in the morning. But we are working out the kinks.
Life is good. ❤️

MY ONLINE PAPER CRAFTERS CLUB IS LOOKING FOR NEW MEMBERS
I’m forming a new Paper Crafters club that will begin mid-September (with orders due mid-month for October, November, December, January, February & March). And we are looking for TWO more to join us. The commitment is to order at least $25 worth of Stampin’ Up! product in each of those 6 months. In one of those months, you would reap the hosting rewards (free merchandise based on the club orders). And then you’d also be able to get in on monthly product perks that would be sent to you along with your monthly club cards.

I’m so proud to be teamed up with five other super talented Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators so we can create Fun Fold cards & 3-D projects to share exclusively with our customers, paper crafting friends & team members each month!
