Stampin’ Up! Baker’s Boxes for Fall and Halloween!

Hey y’all!  Welcome to Monday – and the work week.

What a downer-way to start a blog post, huh?  Sorry! 🙁

Let me give you a more-fun bit of news!  Stampin’ Up! let us know there’s been a big refresh in the Clearance Rack – so be sure to check it out.  AND – Fast Fuse is AVAILABLE while supplies last at a huge DISCOUNT!!  Don’t wait if you need Fast Fuse – check it out below and get it while it lasts!

So – if you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thanks.  I hope you had a good time – it was sort of fun designing on the fly as a group, wasn’t it?  If you didn’t get to watch, but would like to see the fun after-the-fact, here’s the Memorex on YouTube!

The sneak peek I gave you yesterday was a Baker’s Box that I’d colored using Stampin’ Spritzers and Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink Refills.  The video shows how I did that!

For the sample box, I used the cool Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF and the new Country Home bundle to decorate it after I was thru coloring it.  Take a look-see:

On last night’s video, we decorated our colored box using elements from the Cauldron Bubble Bundle!

The video explains the coloring process – so take a quick gander at that!

Decorating the sides of the boxes was the same for each design.  In both cases, I matted either an embossed card stock panel or a piece of the Toil & Trouble DSP on a color coordinating mat and then adhered them to the sides with Liquid Glue.  On the front panel, I punched a half-circle with my 3/4″ Circle Punch.

 

From there, it was a matter of “frosting the cake”!  Each box started with some Chicken Wire Elements, snipped down and adhered with Liquid Glue.

I cut several images from the Toil & Trouble DSP using their dies in the Cauldron Framelits to decorate the Halloween Box – as well as two spider webs from Black Foil.  I also punched a Black Foil bat with the Spooky Bats punch!

The sides of the Fall box are Crumb Cake card stock, embossed in the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF, then lightly sponged with Soft Suede ink.  The sentiment banner is an image from the Country Home stamp set, stamped on Crumb Cake in Early Espresso.  I colored the cotton balls with my White Watercolor Pencil and snipped a banner end.

I stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze on a thinner strip of Crumb Cake and bannerized it, too.  Then I adhered it to the larger banner with a little Liquid Glue and slid a Galvanized Clip on the left end.

I wrapped some 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around the box and tied a knot on the top.  Then I added a Linen Thread Billie-bow and a second “regular” bow with the Braided Trim.  Then I slid the sentiment banner under the bow and secured it in place with a Glue Dot under the Galvanzied Clip.

And that was it, folks!  These new Baker’s Boxes are perfectly sized for a deluxe donut or a few gourmet cookies.  Or…candy!  Or…whatever!  And you can just decorate them to your heart’s content!  Fall – with the Country Home Bundle – would be perfect!  And Halloween is almost here!  Cauldron Bubble and a little Toil & Trouble make super fun treat boxes!  Hope you like!

CLEARANCE RACK REFRESH

Clearance Rack

New items have been added to the Clearance Rack in the online store.  Supplies are limited, and with discounts up to 60%, products will go quickly. Shop now and stock up.


FAST FUSE ADDED TO CLEARANCE RACK (WHILE SUPPLIES LAST)

Fast Fuse Adhesive

If you’re like us, you thought the days of Fast Fuse were done at Stampin’ Up! (You know . . . because we had already retired the product and everything!) However, our vendor reached out to us because they manufactured a surplus of Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and they offered to sell their excess Fast Fuse inventory to us. We took them up on their offer and purchased 2,500 Fast Fuse applicators and 72,000 Fast Fuse refills.

One of the reasons SU! decided to buy this product was because of feedback they received letting them know that some of you still wanted to purchase Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and this was the perfect opportunity to make it available once again through the Clearance Rack. Fast Fuse refills will be available to you for more than 50% off their original price! Because supplies are limited, you should go right to the online store to place your order instead of waiting to place a workshop order.  These’ll go fast, y’all!

See what I did there?  You’re welcome.

Get them right now while they last!  Order direct thru my Online Store with these links! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix

On Sunday, I was walking from the bedroom back to the kitchen.

And I noticed Finn.

Sleeping.

Finn sleeping is not unusual.

This, though.

THIS…

These are just things that make you scratch your head and think…wait…what?!?

Stampin’ Up! Country Home Video Sneak Peek

Morning, my peeps!  Happy Sunday!

Tonight we’re going to do a video that will be messy.

There’s likely going to be ink everywhere.

Just want you to be prepared.

We might use the Country Home Suite.

We might not!  (Which would make the title of this post a mean ole bait-and-switch!)

Guess you’ll have to join me at 8pm Eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page to find out!

Take a sneaky peek of our project!

Hope you’ll join me while we get inky!

8pm.  Eastern.  Right here!

Finn Fan Fix

 

I caught him in the act today.

At the 1 1/2 mile point (apparently it’s getting earlier and earlier….).

I took that as I headed down the LEFT fork – to finish the 2 miles.

HE is on the right fork, moseying to the house.

Right after I snapped this – he looked back and realized I’d caught him in the act.

So he sheepishly rejoined me – for another 100 ft or so, and then he disappeared…

The thing is – this morning? I really did NOT want to keep going.

I was ready to stop.

And he knew it.

He has ESPN fer shure. <<insert ponytail flip>>

Stampin’ Up! A Whole Lot of Lovely True Gentleman Marker Holder

Hey, y’all!  Welcome to the weekend.  Again!  Wow.  Time is flying – Sale-A-Bration ends TODAY!  So…if you’ve been “waiting till the last minute”….uhm….the last minute is upon you! 😉

Friday was busy for me – Finn to the vet (he’s fine!), real-work busy-ness, horse-shoer….bottom line, when I got ready to get a project together to share with you for today, I needed to select from one of my quicker to-do-list goodies!

Enter…the Sharpie Holder! 🙂

I’d seen this quick and fun project on Pinterest – from The Papered Chef – and thought they’d be fun to make.  And since they’re quick and easy – they’re perfectly perfect if you need a bunch of them!  The base is simply a strip of DSP – I used the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP – and a sentiment.  I grabbed one from Truly Tailored – the punny-ness of it was just too cool.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Wood Textures Easter Basket (weave!)

Happy happy Hawwwwmp day!  Hope your week is going well!

Before I get to the project for today – I need to clarify something on the twist-and-pop-up card measurements.  I’d inadvertently put a bad measurement for the “mechanism” on the blog posts for the two cards I made.  Here’s the real numbers:  2 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  I’ve fixed the posts already to reflect the correct numbers – but…if you’ve been trying to make one of your own – this measurement will work much more better! 🙂

Okay – now that that’s out of the way, let’s get started! The other day at our team meeting, we made a fun little 3-D project that Amy designed for us.  I decided to do a little bit of modification and add a few little fun goodies.  It uses the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF….the Daisy Punch and…the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  Take a look-see:

The little basket is fun and easy! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! A Good Day for Delightful Daisy Treat Holder

Monday again, y’all!  Whoo-hoo?

No.  

But – I had a good weekend and I hope that y’all did, too!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but would like to see how I made these Spring-y little treat boxes, here’s the YouTube version!

I admit, I blatantly CASEd the heck out of this from Sam Hammond (aka Pootles) – she did a great video!  You can see her version right here!

For mine, I used the gorgeous Delightful Daisy DSP from our Annual Catalog, and paired it with a sweet little sentiment from the A Good Day stamp set, which is in the Occasions catalog! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Tags & Trimmings for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month is Christmas or Happy Holidays!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!  

I decided to make a treat holder using the fun Tags & Trimmings bundle.  Take a look-see:

This is such an easy little treat holder to make, y’all!  Hang on!

To start with, I cut the two main pieces of the stocking in the Trim Your Stocking Thinlit set in Powder Pink.  When you make this, you can cut a piece of card stock about 6″ x 6 3/4″ and both of the dies will fit on it and you’ll be able to get it thru the Big Shot!

I used the coordinating dies in the set to cut the top, heel and toe of the stocking from the pretty Year of Cheer Specialty DSP.  And some “pom-pom trim” from a scrap of Whisper White card stock.

I inked up the sentiment from the Tags & Trimmings stamp set in Versamark and stamped it on the front of the stocking.  Then I heat embossed it in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

When you make one, add the decorations before you assemble the stocking.  I used Liquid Glue to add all the little pieces and parts.  I cut two of the large and lovely snowflakes from the Trim Your Stocking Thinlits – one each in Silver and Gold Foil.  I also stamped one of the little buttons – in Versamark – on a piece of scrap Powder Pink, heat embossed it in Silver and cut it with the matching die.  I piled them all up with Liquid Glue and added them at the top of the stocking.

To assemble the stocking, I used Tear & Tape Adhesive on the scored tabs (the dies do the scoring for you).  If you’d like a good tutorial on how to put this baby together, you can check out Amy Koender’s video right here!  I used silver Mini Tinsel Trim for the top “hangar”.

The final touch is a bow made with two lengths each of Silver and Gold Metallic Thread, adhered with a little scrunched up Glue Dot.

Et Voila!  This little Tags & Trimmings treat holder is just the perfect size for a taste of chocolate, a gift card or a nice folded show-me-the-money gift. Snap it up and decorate or gift-give with it!  Hope you like!

Scroll on down for the card cuts and all the products you’ll need to make this one for yourself.

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Sue’s been doing!

Introducing the….Stamparatus!!

 

At OnStage, Stampin’ Up! introduced our brand spanking new stamp-placement tool, called the Stamparatus!!  I know a lot of you have Misti’s or other brands of stamp placement tools and you love them.  Well….SU! demonstrated this last weekend and OH.  MY.  GOODNESS!!  The things it will do!  It’s a Misti-on-steroids!

The Stamparatus will change the way you stamp, and before long, you’ll wonder how you crafted without it!  Check out this video (be sure to watch all the way and see The Hinge Step!!)!

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

Here’s the product details!

Retail Price–$49.00 USD

Okay. I’ve gotta have one. How do I get in line?

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system.  It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:

  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • 1 tool per customer per reservation window. 
  • You can participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you must provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.

Click here for a flyer with lots of FAQs and answers!!

Stampin’ Up! Wood Crates and Lemon Zest Goodie Holder

Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all!  Hope this finds you well and enjoying your week!

When I had lunch with my friend the other day, I took her a little sumpin’ sumpin’ that I made right quick with the Wood Crates Framelits and matching Wood Words stamp set.  And a fun pop of Lemon Zest!  Take a look-see:

 

I cut out two crate pieces with the Wood Crates Framelits from some Thick Whisper White card stock and stamped the floral image from Wood Words in Lemon Lime Twist on both of them.  I added a little more color with a Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker.   Continue reading

For the video last night,  I changed it up a bit and made…

I created the crate and then added three little 3″ x 3″ note cards using the Wood Words stamp set, and 3 matching envelopes that I made with the Envelope Punch Board!

Finn-Fan Fix…

Yesterday morning, before we headed over to have Easter dinner with our friends – and let Finny have a playdate with Scout – we had farm work to do!

Fed the horses, cleaned the stalls, pulled feed for dinner.

Then we needed to sweep the aisle.

It was a terrible mess!

Finn’s version of “helping” is a little less than…helpful…

Stampin’ Up! New Catalog Survival Kits

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well.  I’m here in beautiful Savannah, at OnStage Local.  Lats night I had the privilege of attending Center Stage – the additional session for folks who’ve promoted to Silver Elite and above (sending many thanks to my wonderful downline folks and customers!!!).  We had a fun time with Brian King and some of his group and heard a few speakers who were helping us to grow our business.  And…I got a couple new goodies from the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.

Oh.  And my very own copy of that new catalog!

Y’all.

Seriously.

This catalog is amazing and awesome!!  I flat can’t wait for you to get to see it!!  I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that you need to get your credit cards limbered up! 😉  And – you should consider joining my team right now so that you can get that cool 20-25% discount and give your credit card a little breather!

I can’t show you any pictures of anything related to the new catalog yet (Monday afternoon – promise!), but figured I’d share some B-roll with you!  Here’s me with Linda Geiger and Amy Koenders driving over to Savannah.  No – we weren’t moving at the time! 🙂


Later, after we’d checked in and met with the ladies of our group, they headed off to dinner at The Old Pink House (real sorry I didn’t get to go to that! 🙁 ) and Amy, Sue Prather and I headed to Center Stage!  The day was gorgeous – if breezy! – and the river was bustling!


Before we headed in, we took a quick picture…for posterity, don’t you know! 🙂

So – here’s what I’ve got for you today.  Two of my friends who also happen to be in my downline were able to attend OnStage in person this year – one lady out in San Diego and one with me here in Savannah.  To let them know how much I appreciate them making the effort to attend with me, I made each of them a little New Catalog Survival Kit!


I got the idea for the innards, which I modified a little, from a fellow Demonstrator, and then I went to town decorating them!  You can see that they’re both completely different on the outside – I made them to coordinate with my Thank You cards.  And to sort of personalize them to their recipients!

On the inside, though, they both got….


I typed up and printed a fun little listing of the contents in each box…


These are so easy to make.  They start with a full-size Stampin’ Up! Wide Stamp Case (these are the cases that the wood stamp sets come in – and you can buy them without stamps – get 4 of them for just $7!).  Then you add your DSP – I used two pieces because it helps them to fold and close smoothly.

The first case started with some Pop Of Pink DSP (this one went to my friend in San Diego – and she love love LOVES pink!!).  I cut one piece to 6 3/8″ x 7″ and scored/folded it at 1 1/4″ down the shorter (6 3/8″) side.  That piece went on the front and spine of the case – just slip it inside the clear plastic sleeve on the case!  The back piece is 5″ x 7″ and also just slips in!

At that point – I decorated the front with some Melon Mambo letters cut with the Large Letters Framelits, and a Succulent Thinlits flower – adhering them with Glue Dots.  The flower was cut in Whisper White and So Saffron and sponged lightly with So Saffron before I assembled it.  

I stuck it on – over a couple of pieces of 3/8″ Silver Metallic Ribbon (of the now-retired Sale-A-Bration flyer!) with more Glue Dots.

Then I wrapped a piece of the ribbon around the case, adhering the ends of the ribbon to each other (not to the box) so that she can just slip the ribbon off to open the case.  I used two lengths of the ribbon to tie a bow and adhered it to the ribbon with a couple of Glue Dots.  And that was it!

The second box, for my friend here in Savannah with me, uses a quieter color scheme and the great Detailed Dragonflies bundle.


This box uses the Carried Away DSP from the Sale-A-Bration flyer (sorry, y’all – but you can use any paper that works with your color scheme)

I cut more Large Letter Framelits – one set in Early Espresso and the other in Mint Macaron – and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.  Then I used Glue Dots to adhere them to the front of the case.

I made a little tag using my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Banner Triple Punch.  First I stamped the World of Thanks background stamp in Mint Macaron on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I punched it top and bottom, wrapped a couple of pieces of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine thru the punched hole at the top, and adhered it to the box with  Liquid Glue.


I cut three of the smaller detailed dragonflies from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits – one from Mint Macaron DSP, one from Early Espresso DSP and one from Vellum card stock.  Then I adhered them together with Liquid Glue on their bodies and adhered it to the tag.  Then I brushed his little wings with Clear Wink of Stella!

The final touch was a line of small Pearl Basic Jewels.  To close the box, I wrapped Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine around and tied it in a knot.  Then I made a 4-strand bow and adhered it to the knot with Liquid Glue.  Again – the recipient can just slide the twine right off!


Et Voila!  Two pretty, decorated boxes – perfectly coordinated with their cards.  And – isn’t that one of the coolest things?  Obviously, you could make these boxes for any occasion – how about one with school supplies in it for a First Time To School gift?  New job gift?  New baby gift?  I think you could get a lot of mileage out of these boxes.  Hope you like!

FINN-FAN FIX….

Pretty sure you have to be tired of pictures of Finn sleeping in the bathroom while I take a bath.

I’m sorry.  But I can’t help it very much.  He just gets in the most cutest and adorablest positions ever.

Case in point.


Check the flopped ear.

I’m sorry for all you people who think you have the cutest dog ever living in your home.  It’s sweet that you think that, and you should keep on thinking it.  But…you’re just flat wrong. 😉

He’s right here in Fayetteville!
