It’s time for the Baker’s Dozen Studio Challenge. This is a monthly opportunity for us to share what makes our stamping studios hum. Each month we will have a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.

The theme for October is:

Good things come in small packages! The holiday season is upon us and between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukah, and Christmas there are a ton of opportunities to create and give little treats, gifts, and party favors. Please show us something you’ll be giving this year.




I have found that although my friends love it when I make them cards and gift sets, they love it more when I can fill their tummy with something yummy. I made a little gift box filled with pistachio cranberry biscotti. My friends always love a good treat to eat and I love to make it for them. This is for my girlfriend who is always doing something thoughtful for me, whether it be a phone call, texts me a funny picture, or shares her time with me. This is her favorite biscotti and I’ve been asked for this recipe many, many times. I also made some chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to go with it…and might have even had a few myself!


For those of you who want it, here’s the link to the Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti (All Recipes)…where I found the recipe years ago.

I used this TUTORIAL on SCS to make the treat box and the image and sentiment are from A Bushel & A Peck. The patterned paper is October Afternoon Cakewalk and it has such a nice, vintage feel to it.

Here are the supplies I used:
