Video – Surprise Can with Easter Lamb

IMG_8299wmWho doesn’t love a surprise? Especially from a can that holds the mystery of how it was filled. Very ship-in-the-bottle-esque.

As the video shows below, you will need these three items to make these treasures:

Walmart has them so I assume other big box stores do too.

Pull top cans with a bottom lid
Look for cans with a pull top as well as a bottom lid like the one pictured  below. I have the best luck finding them in the canned fruit aisle of my grocery store.  IMG_8261wm

Stampin’ Up!’s Crystal Effects are a must-have too. See my video below to see why.

The ADORABLE stamp set used here is Easter Lamb. It’s a sweet stamp from our Occasions Catalog. For only $10, it’s a steal!

Video – Toadally Awesome Curvy Keepsake Box

IMG_6858 with markYou’re Sublime is an excellent stamp set when you’re in the mood for a little whimsy. The images, especially this little toad with its big eyes and goofy grin, make me smile.  🙂

The Decorative Dots Embossing Folder adds to the whimsy of this box by creating a bumpy, toad-like surface. There is a trick, however, to making the texture work. See the video to follow:
