Ben Franklin Crafts make & takes

Today was "world cardmaking day" and to help celebrate, Cheri and I did some Sizzix make & takes at the all Ben Franklin Crafts stores on Oahu.
Actually, we did this first make & take at the Market City store yesterday. We made a Hello Kitty Christmas ornament. So cute! This morning I was at the Paa St. store and we made a trick or treat take out box with Hello Kitty. The embossed words is a brand new Sizzix Halloween folder set.
While I was at the Paa St. store, Cheri was at the Enchanted Lake store and they made this Christmas card with last year's TI set. I hope you can see the snowman on the card. This card only used embossing folders. Another fast card to make for Christmas.Then we met up at the Pearl City store in the afternoon. Joy from The Joy of Crafting tv show surprised me with this cute french fry box filled with chocolate goodies. It was packaged so neatly that I didn't want to open it. She made this owl using Marvy punches. So clever!I also got a bag of avocados and some Ritz cracker snacks from Carole. Thanks so much Carole! I ate the snacks during the make & take. We didn't get to eat until after 3 pm.
We made this Christmas treat bag at the Pearl City store. It's not a good picture of the bag but it holds quite a bit of treats. It was cut from one of the Ellison dies.
So glad to see all of you who came to the make & takes! Hope everyone enjoyed themselves. Cheri brought many samples with her and I can hardly wait to get a bunch of the new dies for myself!
Don't forget you still have time to post a comment on the post below for a chance to win the new winter set TI.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!!! I need to clean up my mess!
