Boo Treats!

Time has flown this year! Our little ghost friends are flying, too, with chocolate treats for your Halloween! Hi, this is Debb (Clickersister) and I'm bringing a frightful little treat holder 
for you today!

These are quick and easy, so you can make up a bunch to hand out to the little trick-or-treaters! It only takes a few supplies, and this wonderful cardstock has a contrasting pattern on the reverse side!
Let's get started!

The Robin's Nest supplies:

Other supplies:
Hole Punch

These sizes will fit a full-sized candy bar. You can use these basic instructions and change the sizes to fit any size candy bar that you wish!

Cut a piece 7 inches by 3 inches, then taper the top to a point. Cut the second piece 5 by  4 1/4 inches.
Then cut a piece the length of the paper by as wide as you like for the band to go around the outside.

Then score the bottom of the 5 inch piece at 1/2 inch, turn a quarter turn and score again at 1/2, 5/8,
 3 5/8, and 3 3/4. Snip out the corner to the inside score mark.

 Fold at each score line. It should look something like this:

Add your adhesive to the inside flaps.

Place this on the tag portion and adhere to the back. Don't push the front panel all the way around to the back. Let the folded score line create a small "box" for the candy bar to slide into.

Add the contrasting side of your strip of paper around the candy holder, embellish, and punch a hole for the ribbon, and you have your candy holder complete!

See, quick and easy, and great for any Halloween party! Thanks for joining me today!

Unique Angels

Hello Readers,

I am still working on picture day at Grandma's house.
Yes, I am the very proud grandmother of these adorable children.
I'm not biased or anything!

My new purchase for the dress up box was angel wings,
but I had to wait for Halloween to get them, and only could
find 3 sets, so little Caleb he wanted wings too!

We found him some butterfly wings at the dollar store, thank goodness they had
some, he was totally distraught and kept on stealing the
larger wings from the girls.

But all dressed in white, the girls and he had a great time with
being angels.

I love the kisses they are blowing to me.

I don't direct any of the things they do, they just do them
when the camera comes out, and giggle and talk about what they
are going to do next!

Smoky Chevron Cardstock Saffron Sunrise Cardstock

I used these 2 cardstocks from the Saffron Sunrise collection
I also used a vellum from our older lines
a book page, and lots of flowers,
and embellishments from Gypsy Soul Lazer cuts.
Dew drops in gold, silver and white.

I just love how this layout turned out!
seems urethral in the black and white!

India - Art Journal

Hello crafty friends,

I created an Art Journal page for you, always girly but with India theme.

I fell in love with a so beautiful The Robin's Nest's paper!!!

Products I used


glitter paste
picture from Pinterest

How to do

I colored my background with green gelato and I used a stencil with pink and blue ink pads.

I sticked my picture on a small square of paper, used glitter paste with a stencil. I stamped some butterflies that I colored and sticked around my picture. I added some flowers too.

You can see some stamps and Dew Drops.

I cut elephants from the beautiful paper and sticked them under the picture and on the bottom of the other page.

I did the title with Alpha Glitter Stickers.

Do you love this?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Clearance Bin Makeover (clipboard frame)

I am constantly digging through the clearance bins at ANY store I go to - you just never know what you might find.  The other day at Michael's, I picked up an ugly clipboard standing frame twice and set it down twice - walked away.  Then the light bulb went off - I CAN make this PRETTY!  So I snatched it up for under $5.00

It so easy to re-make small home decor items using The Robin's Nest products - - you just need to keep an open mind when rummaging through those clearance bins!  Just remember how easy it is to use paint, paper and embellishments from The Robin's Nest to re-imagine an item!

And in keeping with our Girl Power theme this month - I re-imagined this piece in a classic black & white animal print - - because EVERY girl's decor can benefit from a dash of animal print & bling!

You know how I work -- let's start by gathering:

An ugly clearance bin find (Clipboard Frame from Michael's)

First - remove clip from frame.  Spray paint clipboard frame black

Cut Zebra Print Cardstock to fit your frame and adhere (my piece is 6 x 9).  And let's just take a little aside on this "Thermal Animal Print Cardstock" - - it has a great weight and feel (the pattern is very "slick" with a hint of glitter - - I would almost compare it to a vinyl - - but it's paper - - thick, yet pliable and it is PERFECT for projects like this!)

Now re-attach your clip (which I also spray painted a solid black)

Next - add your Dew Drops and Sequins to add some glitz

Add some "straw" to your clip

And that's all there is to it - - really, the star of this project is the Thermal Cardstock - - try it on your next project!


Be a Star

Colleen here and can't wait to share this girly layout page.

I decided to try a different shape this time, so I cut out a star using my Cameo, and cut out the star from the paper and from chipboard.

I used the backside of the Diamonds beautiful paper and adhered it to the chipboard.
Next I used a couple of my stencils and white molding paste onto the Diamonds paper.  Once it was dry I went over it with watercolor paints that I made myself.

While the paint was drying I embossed the beautiful Deco 6" Frame by Ginas Designs using silver embossing powder.  I also embossed a butterfly and all the leftover pieces from the frame.

I cut the photo into a circle and also cut a frame using the back side of Valentine Stripe paper.

Next I used back side of the Valentine Stripe paper and a die and cut out all the flowers.  I wanted the flowers to sparkle so I added glitter to each flower.  You just use a paintbrush to brush a little glue on the flower and sprinkle the glitter over the top.

To finish off the flowers I added a silver dew drop from the Black/White/Silver dew drop package.

I used a sizzix die and cut out all the leaves from Green Grass Glitter paper.  I added butterflies, some of my homemade stick pins and my homemade pearl accents and finally used Glitter Word Titles and cut out the "So Sweet" and used a star from the Silver Fireworks collection.

Thank you looking and don't forget to check out the beautiful products in the store.

Friendship Wraps with Bev

Hi Bev here today. I am creating with some of these amazing Friendship Wraps. What a great new addition to the product lines. So many fabulous different shapes and styles to pick from.

Supply List: 
Dew Drops: Fairy Dust
Chipboard: shape accents
Fairy: Gina Designs
Other: Memory Box Die, ribbons, lace, flowers, leaves, beads, Kreaxions punch, copic markers, liquid pearls

Here is the one specifically that I am using today.

1. Assemble the box using glue to firmly hold it in place.
2. Pull some accents that you would like to use on this.

3. Trim base with paper wrapped around.

4. I chose to punch a solid border to accent around the upper edge.

5. With the main paper and border done ... the rest is easy. Just trim and accent using things in your stash. On this side I die cut a gold accent using Memory Box die, then clustered Robin's Nest shapes cut from glitter chipboard and the fun silver heart accent. Dew drops were added to the upper right corner and a great cluster of ribbon, lace and beads tied off to finish this side.

6. On this side I made a cluster of flowers, some leaves and beads and wrapped and tied them off with ribbon. To match the other side I added the drew drops and using Gina Design fairy I copic coloured her and added liquid pearls to her wings.

This cute little Friendship Wrap could be used at parties as hostess gifts, candy boxes for those kids get togethers or fabulous fun table pieces for so many occasions. Notice from the side that they have great depth to add what ever you would like.


I was having so much fun I made another one... to share with you.

For this one I folded the upper handles to fold down just a little and meet in the middle.

Supply List:
Paper: Olive Stripe, 
Other: lace, ribbon, beads

Here is the front view with all the fun accents from Robin's Nest.

The other side with more accents... so many to choose from.

The side view where I left it plain sparkle paper in forest green with gold. Tie off the top with ribbons, lace and beads and you have a 2nd  Friendship Wrap box all done.
