Stampin' Up Review and ~GIVEAWAY~!

If you know me or read my blog very often, you know that I love to craft and bake fun things. So, when I was given the opportunity to write a review for Stampin' Up, I was particularly excited. For the review, I recived the following products from Stampin' Up.

• Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamp 
• Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, item number 123125
The products were all super high quality and I decided to use them to create gifts for some ladies in my MOPS group.

First I purchased some delicious hot cocoa mixes and put them in bags that I labeled. Sea Salt Caramel and also Mint Chocolate... Yummy! 
Next, I put the hot cocoa bags into the Kraft Gift Box provided by Stampin' Up. These boxes came un-assembled but, I was really impressed with how easy it was to assemble them. They are also really sturdy so, I think next time I use these, Judah (almost 3 years old) can even help me.  
I used the Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, item number 123125, to wrap up the boxes. A brown paper package, tied up with string. I love it! This twine was really easy to work with and for only $2.95, you get a ton of twine. Definitely a good deal. 
The labels for the boxes with made with the Smooth Card Stock Very Vanilla, item number 124301, and punched out with the 2-3/8”Scallop Circle punch, item number 118874
 I decorated some marshmallows to include as part of the set with the hot cocoa. 

 The tag for the decorated marshmellows was made with the Smooth Card Stock Very Vanilla, punched out with the  2-3/8”Scallop Circle punch and then I stamped it with the Homemade stamp set.
Now onto the BEST part....the cookie press. 
This cookie press creates super cute cookies, so easily. 
I made our favorite sugar cookie recipe, rolled the dough into balls, stamped the cookies, baked them and 
Taaaaa Daaaa!!!
I love that with this cookie press, I don't need to spend the time decorating my cookies. They look cute and festive, without hardly any hassle or time. I've already used this cookie press twice. Once when we had some moms and kids over to play, and another time to bring cookies with me to MOPS. 
Now, for the GIVEAWAY!!! One of my lucky readers has the opportunity win a Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamp from Stampin' Up.
