Hot Cocoa Projects

It's winter, and it's cold, so hot cocoa seemed an appropriate kind of project, especially when I was going through some old stamps and found a fun one that I had forgotten about.  I think it was a Darcie stamp.  It had a partial cocoa recipe in the center of the mug, but it was useless as it was, since I didn't have the rest of the recipe, and so I cut that part out and stamped other things inside instead.

I made 3 little cocoa bags (my own cutting file design, simple as it may be) with 2 packets of cocoa inside, and the box that is the cocoa packet dispenser was made from a cutting file that I bought from the Silhouette store.

I also made this card to send to my son in Alaska. The snowflake card was from the Silhouette store.  I added a penguin because he loves penguins. The phrase was adapted from another file I got at the Silhouette store.  I have a subscription, so each design is only about 11 cents.  My time is worth more than that, and it often speeds things up for me when I want to make something.


  1. These are so cute. You are very talented. I got your blog link via the Pea Forum. Thanks for all the posts you make there, you are always kind and helpful.

  2. This card is absolutely adorable. You are right, time is very valuable and 11 cents was well spent.
