Chocolate Bar "Book" for Valentine's Treats

Do you remember Lifesaver "books"?  This is a different take on that.. with 2 Hershey bars.  








As I created this treat holder, I learned a few things about Hershey Bars!  They come in slightly different sizes, with some longer, some shorter, some wider and some curvier!  So there are 2 options to make this Chocolate Book.


If you use the Dark Hershey Bars, they are longer and skinner so you cut your paper accordingly.  Cut the paper 6 1/2 x 5 3/4, score on the short side 2 3/8, 2 7/8, the top layer is x 2 x 6 1/4 embossed


If you use the Almond Bars, they are short but curvier, so cut your paper a little shorter but a little wider to accomodate the curve. Cut the paper 6 x 5 1/4 score on the short side 2 1/4, 2 1/2, top layer is 2 x 5 3/4


To decorate, I added a top layer and dry embossed it with the new Gingham embossing folder (any folder will work well!)


I adhere by Chocolate bars to the Early Express cardstock, wrapped a ribbon (about 28") and decorated the front with the embossed top layer and 2 hearts.  I chose a gold foil heart for the Almond bars. 


We are making this project at our Valentines Day party this Sunday Feb 6 3pm by Zoom (so all can join in).  Let me know if you'd like to be part of the team and this party!  We have some fun games and creativity planned.  You can reach me on MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com


I'm highly recommending you buy the 6 pack of Hershey bars.. you'll want to make an extra "book" and it's possible that between the grocery store and home... 1 might disappear .. and maybe as you make them you might need a snack?



Happy crafting! MaryKate

Every Chapter - A fun book club card

 My library celebrated their 40th anniversary of "Friends of the Library". I made tent cards for the tables.




So it's a regular card 4 1/4 x 11 but both sides had the "front" of the card.  


I embossed in silver for some shine. I was asked to use the library's colors... which are Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody and Gorgeous Grape -- all colors I love (but not together!) I thought the colors were quite rich together.

So I used some of the Free Sale-A-Bration paper (Marbleous) and I think it kept the look but softened it.

The set is called Every Chapter and I love it!

I'll be using this at my upcoming library class Feb 4 and 5 (2-330pm both days) and free!! No cost, the library provides me with a supply fee.  Details on the Workshop tab. Hope to see you there.


Questions? I'm here... MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com

Birthday Cards - a fun kit with Light the Candles, video included

Hi all!


This is a super fun birthday card kit.  The kit makes 8 cards (great for men, women, children), just fun birthday cake and candles! 


Click here to see me make the cards it's a short video, I make just 2 (I know you are busy crafters!)


Kits are available in my online store, you click on the cart and select "kits" from the product list.  


I made up the 2nd card as designed and then also with a "wonky" look.. which do you prefer?


Everything you need is in the kit: all the project supplies, the stamp set, ink, block and adhesives.  I love that it's so portable.  Kits are perfect if you are away from your own craft room (perhaps you are a snowbird?).


Here's a link to the instructions (if you'd like to see how the cards go together).

Click here for the instruction set

Lot's of choices with our Kits collection.  


Let me know if you have questions!

Sour Cream Container using SAB Rainbow Paper with a video

 This week I have several projects made using our wonderful new Sale-A-Bration items.  This is fun cute table favor, treat holder.  Below is a link to a video on how to make this holder.  


“Sour Cream” Treat Box Dimensions and "how to"

1.   The Rainbow paper is 4 x 6 with TearNTape on 1 short and 1 long side. Put tear n tape on one short side, turn the paper over and put tear n tape on one long side.

2.   Make a roll (almost looks like a toilet roll!) secure using the tape on the short side of the paper.

3.   Remove the lower tear n tape (now it is in a circle) and secure the bottom edge – but when you secure this make sure the seam is off center.

4.   Now fold the other end the other way so it looks a bit like a sour cream container.

5.   Add ribbon and a greeting to the open end, securing with a clip. You can adhere both ends, but I like to be able to open and close my packaging.

6.   Fill with treats

7.   This is perfect for Valentine’s or for a party favor, or as a name tag for a dinner table

Friendly Hello Birthday Card with a vidoe

 This week I have several projects made using our wonderful new Sale-A-Bration items.  




This Friendly Hello paper is so pretty, the colors are Pool Party, Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia and Granny Apple Green, it's very springy!

Friendly Hello – Birthday card Dimensions and "how to"

1.   Designer paper 4 x 11, scored at 2 3/8 and 7 ¼

2.   Trim the top of the paper into a vee by finding the middle (2”) and then measuring ¾ from the top edge, cutting each side into the center to it’s a gradual vee.

3.   Create the inside – the white is 3 ½ x 4 ¼ - stamp on this paper and add to the inside of the card.  You could cut this down to show more of the designer paper.

4.   Now make the front: stamp the greeting (you can use a punch, cut a shape or die cut)

5.   Trim the 2 other pieces of designer paper that are 1 x 4 with a flag end (or use a banner punch)

6.   Attach the 2 pieces flat to the top part of the card (above the “vee”), and then add the greeting with dimensionals – tip make sure the adhesive for these 2 pieces is only at the top so the card can open.

7.   Tie 18” of matching ribbon around the top and tuck under the top of the greeting so this can be pulled off by the recipient. This can be mailed in a regular envelope.

Sweet Conversations "Split Technique" card with a video!

This week I have several projects made using our wonderful new Sale-A-Bration items and our new Valentine Suite: Sweet Conversations




The card uses the Sweet Conversations paper - this 12x12 pack is a winner!  I love making lots of Valentine cards (spread the love, appreciate people around you!) So this card is a great option as it uses 4x4 sheet of the designer paper. Getting 9 cards from a single sheet is very paper efficient!


A Valentine using the split technique

1.   You have 2 sheet of Sweet Conversation designer paper each 4 x 4; there are several options

a.   White Base 8 ½ x 5 ½

b.   I cut my 4 x 4 with a slice starting at ¾ on the right going down to 1 ¼ on the right.

c.   I spread these apart and stamped in between. I used Sweet Conversations and stamped-off the hearts but my greeting is full strength so it stands out. I added an embellishment of the little envelope from the matching dies with hearts coming out the envelope.

Daffodil Easter Blessings #SimpleStamping Card

This week I have several projects made using our wonderful new Sale-A-Bration items.  



The card uses this Daffodil paper - it is a winner! One of the sheets is perfect to split into 6 card fronts from a single sheet of designer paper.  This quick card has a wow factor just by adding the butterflies and twine!  The greeting comes from the Daffodil set in the new catalog.  #SimpleStamping is fun!

5.   Stamp the greeting and add to the Flamingo shape

Looking for fun-quick handmade Valentine's Cards?

This is a quick fun way to make 4 Valentine cards.





The layout is the same for all the cards...but the cards can be horizontal or vertical.  


You take 4 sheets of 2-sided designer paper (I'm using the new Sweet Conversation paper from our new Jan-June Mini), cut them 4 x 5 1/4



Stack them on top of each other. If your paper is directional, stack them all the same way.


Cut in half (along the short edge) at 2 3/4 (red line)

Cut the larger piece at 3" (green line)

Cut the skinny piece at 2" (green line)

See the template below.


Now mix and match the papers, turn the paper over to see which side you like, mix up the papers.  Add to a half sheet of cardstock (8 1/2 x 5 1/2) I used Real Red and Highland Heather.


I added a heart with a stamp from "Heartfelt" and punched it with the matching heart punches. 

A little red satin ribbon under the heart and poof they are done.


If you have some designer paper (I'm sure you do)... try this stack and slice technique.  

If you need supplies, my online store is open, and if you use the host code (top right corner of this page), I'll send you a thank you gift of embellishments.  Don't forget it's Sale-A-Bration so for each $50 you spend, you select a free item.

I sent out catalogs about 2 weeks ago... so if you didn't get one, please reach out to me MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com


Happy creating! MaryKate
