Welcome to Papertrey Ink’s October 2016 Release. Today, the design team is showcasing an array of new holiday products. I have the privilege of featuring Betsy’s latest issue of the Dress Up Dolls series, Dress Up Dolls: Let’s Bake. Food during the holidays is always a memorable experience. Many times, we have traditional foods, especially when it comes to sweet treats. I’ve created a project to share how to gift chocolate pecan turtles in a unique and special way. All new products will be available on October 15 at 10pm ET at Papertrey Ink.
I have a little confession. I love Betsy’s Dress Up Dolls collection WAY more than I thought I would have. I’m not a big fan of coloring stamped images or stamping people, but there’s something about these dolls that make me smile and enjoy the process of creating with them. I made a swim coach card a couple of days ago. Did you all see that post?!
This holiday season, I’m bringing back homemade pecan turtles. I made them as gifts years ago and they were a huge hit, but never made them again. I’m not sure why because they’re super easy to make and people love receiving them. After all, the holiday season is about filling are hearts and stomachs, right?!
My project features the new Dress Up Dolls: Let’s Bake along with the previously released Dress Up Dolls: Basics. I drew the lines on the shirt and the dots on the apron and chef’s hat to get those patterns. I even hand drew some “curls” using a black Copic fine line marker on the hair.
For the tag, I used the Tasting Tag die. I stamped whisks all over it to create a baking themed pattern. I also used the previously released Canned stamps to feature “homemade” and “goodies” is from the new Let’s Bake set.
I added the tag to a pint container that is dressed up with polka dotted patterned paper. The pint container can hold lots of pecan turtles. The top of the container is embellished with a tissue paper flower using the Tissue Paper Favor die.
