Stampin’ Up! Bunches of Bundles SALE and Merry Little Labels Gift Box

Happy Saturday, y’all!  I hope this finds you well.  If you’re awaiting Irma – I hope this finds you safe.  Interestingly, it appears she’s headed for Atlanta.  Likely will be down to tropical storm level when she arrives, but…I suspect we’re in for a day or two of a mess.  Nothing like folks in FL, though! 😦

I’ve got a really cool offering of some special Holiday bundles that I’ve put together.  Think of them as …Curated Collections!  Like I’m your….Personal Buyer!  Yea!  That’s it!!  Those follow a quick look at…

I made this pretty little Christmas gift box with a Mini Pizza Box and a few goodies from the Merry Little Labels group of products.  I also pulled in the Winter Wonder TIEF – and embossed the top of the Mini Pizza Box before I put it together.

I used my Fine Tip Glue Pen to lightly trace the embossed image and then sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter.  Once it was good and dry, I assembled the box.

The ribbon is 7/8″ Striped Ribbon – I wrapped a piece around the box and secured the ends with Glue Dots.  Then I adhered all the decorations to that band of ribbon, so that the recipient can just slide it off to get to the gift or goody on the inside!

I used some Glue Dots to wind a couple of loops of Silver Mini Tinsel Trim around.  Over that is a large bow of the 7/8″ Striped Ribbon, a couple of Green Sprigs and a Mini Ornament.

The tag is from the Merry Little Labels stamp set, heat embossed in Silver on Whisper White and then punched with the new Everyday Label Punch.  I added a hole with my 1/8″ Handheld Punch and then tied a piece of Silver Metallic Thread thru the hole and tied it to the bow.  Done! 🙂

So…let’s talk bundles!

You’ve had some time to peruse the supercalafragileisticespyalodocious Holiday Catalog and I know you want a lot lot lot!  So, I’ve got some really cool Bundles for you to choose from – each of which will save you about 15%!

Finn-Fan Fix  

Finn helped the housekeeper today.  She comes once a week (oh, what a wonderful indulgence!) and he loooooooooves her.

It doesn’t hurt that she carries a bag of doggie treats in her tote.

He keeps a close eye on her as she goes about her business.  You know.  Just in case….a treat were to fall out….

But that kind of intensity is exhausting.

Even an Aussie has to shut down and re-charge every once in a while.

You’re on your own for a minute, Sonya….

Stampin’ Up! Wood Textures Sneak Peek Note Card Holder!

Mornin’, y’all!  I hope you had a great Easter weekend!

Yesterday, I ever-so-slyly shared this picture with you to entice you to join me on Facebook last night…

Well – this was the “rest of the story”!

 

I made 10 little crates using the new Wood Crate Framelits and some of the too-cool photo-realistic Wood Textures DSP Stack paper!!  Filled them with some pink “grass” and added chocolate Easter Eggs.  They were a hit with my friends yesterday!

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!

Check out the video and see how to make these little cuties – and then add the Wood Words Bundle to your Wish List!

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!

Stampin’ Up! Presents and Pines Box-in-a-Bag for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

HappyStampersBlogPostBanner-2
Mornin’, y’all –  welcome to another edition of the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  This is color week – and I know there are going to be a lot of great projects for you to see this week, so….be sure to check out all the offerings of the Ladies-Who-Hop!  

Here are the colors we used – a pretty good color palette for a Christmas-time project, don’t you think?

My project also played nicely into this week’s The Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.  Check the bottom row! 🙂

pp319-sketch

This weekend is the OnStage Local event – which just so happens to have a venue in Atlanta!  Handy, huh!?  And the day before that, Brian King and Pam Morris are hosting a World Card Making Day event (a little later than the actual WCMD – but nicely aligned with OnStage!).  And, they’re doing a 3-d project swap.  So…today’s share is one of the projects I made for that swap!

At least – that’s how it started out – now I’m not sure I’m going to give it away! 😉  Only time will tell!

I used the Presents and Pinecones DSP and some Pretty Pines Thinlits.  Added in a Holly Jolly Layers sentiment and made…this.  Take a look-see:

presents-pinecones-box-in-a-box-1-stamps-n-lingers

This is a “Box in a Bag”!  Fun, right?  And really easy to make!  My friend Jari Francis made one a few days ago, and I decided to try it for myself.  She – and I – used the great tutorial by Diana Gibbs on SplitCoast Stampers.  You can check it out right here!

Although you can’t see it, the inside box is made from a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock, cut to 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″, put together exactly like the tutorial shows.

I used the pretty pine cones design from Presents and Pinecones for the “bag” part of the project.  Just like the tutorial stated, I ran a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive along the bottom and one side of my 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of DSP, then I pulled off the backing paper from the bottom strip.  I “rolled” my paper around my box.

But – I sort of messed up.  I started the paper – in the middle of the box as instructed – but I started with the edge that had the Tear & Tape on it.

Wrong.

Start with the edge that does not have the adhesive.  That way, when you get to the end, you’ll be all ready to stick everything together.  If you do it my way, you’ll have to stop and add another piece of adhesive, and you’ll have a “leftover” strip inside your box.

Like mine! 🙂

But, it worked out and I had my bag!  So it was time for some decoration.

I cut a 1″ x 11″ strip of Crumb Cake card stock and ran it a few times thru the Pine Bough TIEF.  That added a little texture and interest, and broke the fibers of the card stock a little, making it easier to roll around the bottom of the bag.

presents-pinecones-box-in-a-bag-6-stamps-n-lingers

Which I did, using more Tear & Tape Adhesive.  When you do this – just take your time.  The most persnickety piece is making sure that the bottom of your strip stays aligned with the bottom of the bag/box.

At this point, I “designated” a “front” to the bag (I put the bag seam on one side, and the bottom strip seam on the front – knowing I’d cover it with my decorations.

I decorated the bag with Pretty Pines Thinlits pine boughs, cut from Garden Green card stock.  I cut several of each length and adhered them oh-so-artfully around the bottom of the bag, using Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine three times around the bottom of the bag, adhering it with a Glue Dot at the front of the bag.  Before I stuck the final end down, I ran two Mini Pinecones embellishments thru the twine – and used the final Glue Dot to stick them in place.

presents-pinecones-box-in-a-bag-4-stamps-n-lingers

Next I cut some pine cones, all using Crumb Cake card stock.  For two of them, I cut “backer” pine cones from Copper Foil, and adhered them with Liquid Glue.  I also cut a couple of berries in Cherry Cobbler.  Using more of the Liquid Glue, I adhered it all to the bag.

The bow is tied from three pieces of Bakers’ Twine – Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler and Gold – and adhered with Liquid Glue.  I left the tails long and used more Liquid Glue to stick them to the box.

presents-pinecones-box-in-a-bag-5-stamps-n-lingers

With that all done, I addressed the top of the bag.  First I used my 1/2″ Circle Punch to cut holes in the top for my Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Silky Taffeta Ribbon (which I’ll use to close the bag after putting my gift or a few pieces of chocolate inside!).

I made my tag by stamping the round image from the Host-exclusive set called Holly Jolly Layers (Holiday Catalog) onto Whisper White card stock.  I used my Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp directly.  Then I cut it with a scalloped die from the Circles Layering Framelits.  I punched a hole thru the top with my 1/8″ Handheld Circle punch and then ran three strands of Baker’s Twine thru the hole.

presents-pinecones-box-in-a-bag-3-stamps-n-lingers

I tied the label into one of my 1/2″ holes at the top of the bag, tying a final bow and….the bag was done! 🙂

This is a fun sized bag – it would easily hold a small (lightweight!) gift – socks?  Tie?  Action Figure? Candy?  And it’s really easy to get the box-in-a-bag part put together so that you can get to decorating – which is the fun part.  Hope you like!  And that you’ll give one a try yourself! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Totally Trees Thank You Notes and Gift Box

Good morning, ya’ll, on this three-day weekend!  Hope you’re dry and getting ready to have a great Holiday!  We are supposed to have some nice temperatures this weekend – tv weather just said the morning temps should be in the high 60’s!!  Whooooooo-hoooooooo!!  I hope I feel the need to have a little shiver!! 🙂

For today, I went back to the new Totally Trees stamp set.  This is another one that I’m really loving – it’s got so many possible combinations to fuel your creativity!  I used the set to make some little, tiny thank you notes, so I borrowed a little sentiment from One Big Meaning, too.  I made a bunch of them, and also took a quick minute to make a custom gift box to hold the little notes.  Take a look-see:

If you look, you’ll see that I added a couple of leaves, from the Vintage Leaves stamp set, cut with the Leaflets Framelits dies!  When you open the box, the inside reveals 10 little note cards and matching envelopes. Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Going Places Mini Murse in a Box

All my bags are packed (sort of)…..

I’m ready to go (mostly)….

I’m standing’ here – outside your door (no – don’t go to the door, I’m not really there)….

Already I’m so tired-of-traveling I could cry-ai-ai…..ai ai…. 🙂

No – I don’t intend to quit my day job and take up singing or song-writing!

But, I am getting close to being ready to head out.  I mailed home three boxes today – so heavy I could hardly carry them (thank goodness for if-it-fits-it-ships pricing!) and even threw my back out (why not?!?) and I’m still worried about how heavy my luggage will be.  I think if I’m going to keep doing this travel-around-for-work thing, I’m going to need a motor home, specially equipped with a stamping room! Whatcha think? 😉

So, today’s post is quick.  I’ll be adding a tutorial over on the Tutorials page (seems like a good place to put it, yes?) with the details on making these cute little treat boxes.  I got the idea from Kristi Gray, a fellow Happy Stamper, who shared her little treat boxes that she’d made after seeing a tutorial from Sam Donaldson, in the UK.  I was tickled to see them – cuz they use 6″ x 6″ paper!  Which is about all I had here in Arizona.  And – you make them with the Envelope Punch Board, which I’d carefully carried all the way here and never used.  Cuz I didn’t have any paper big enough to make an envelope with – yes, pretty awesome planning!

As soon as I saw them, I got the idea to make a little bag in a box for the folks in my team here.  I used Going Places DSP – cuz it’s mostly guys!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Reason for the Season Treat Holder

Well, here I am.  It’s Tuesday night and I’m readying my post for the morning.  I’m in Savannah, GA.  Arguably a very food-y city.  Home of Paula Deen.  And….other chef-people.  And seafood!  Lots and lots of fresh seafood!

I arrived around 4:30, tired – not a terribly long drive but one that was undertaken in a rental car that’s annoying.  And smells like an ash tray.  A feature I didn’t notice – for whatever reason – when I picked it up on Monday evening.  After a morning where things just didn’t want to work right as I tried to get out the door.  Fortunately, Bo remains “good”, so that didn’t come into play.  Just not a great morning, okay?

So, I get here tired.  And hungry.  And find out I’m in what appears to be the only Hampton Inn and Suites on the planet with no mini-fridge and microwave in the room.  Wondering what to do with the bottle of froo-froo Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer sitting in my cooler.  And watching it start to rain – buckets.

I solved the creamer issue – they brought a teensy mini-fridge.  Done.

I start to look for suitable dinner ideas.  I’m not far from really anything.  I look thru the “This is Savannah” pretty picture book in the room.  Seafood restaurants.  Steak.  BBQ.  The Savannah Sweet Shop.  So.  Many.  Options!

Rain.

Buckets.

Wind.

Final answer – a medium Pepperoni/Sausage pizza and some hot wings from Dominoes.  In my slippers.  In the dry room.  And, because it’s been a crappy kind of day and I don’t want to be here, I self-medicated to take the edge off.  Just a little.

With Cinna-Sticks and frosting.

I am a party animal.  There’s no doubt about it. 😉

But – here’s what I brought along to share with you guys for tomorrow.  Which will be today when you read this.  All Hail the ability to schedule posts to go out the next day!  There’s no telling what kind of gibberish you’d get if I actually typed the posts in the morning!!

This is a great little treat box – using a SU! Tag-a-Bag gift box (like I used for this cute Halloween box) and the Reason for the Season stamp set and bundled Festive Flower Builder punch.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! A Little Something Cute Personalized Gift Card Holder

Just a quick little project for you today.  We’re headed into the gift giving season – and most of us have a few folks on our list who just sort of….befuddle us….when it comes to what to get for that person.  For some reason, most of those people on my list are guys!  Hmmm.  Not sure why – but there it is.  I always kind of hate to do a gift card – somehow it seems like a cop out.  On the other hand – a gift card always fits, is always the right color, and is usually something they want! I do try to pick gift cards that are suited to that person.  Bass Pro for my hubby (usually in addition to other gifts), Amazon for the twenty-something boys/men who are in college and starting a career.  None of them want a Bed, Bath and Beyond gift card, or a Williams-Sonoma card! 🙂

The Gift Card holder I’ve made to share with you today was a requested item.  My friend has a friend (yes – more than just me!) who has found herself in the unenviable position of having a house full of mice.  Not a couple.  Not even a few.  Apparently – it’s an “infestation”, that she found one evening when she “heard a noise in her kitchen and when she turned the light on, there THEY were”.  The poor woman has spent thousands and thousands of dollars getting rid of the mice and replacing everything she fears might have been “touched”.

So, Jan is giving her a gift card (Bed, Bath and Beyond maybe?!) to help her replace some stuff.  And she asked me for a gift card holder.  With maybe a….mouse…. on it.  She assured me her friend will find it funny!

I’ve put up a Tutorial to show you how to make the basic Gift Card holder using the Envelope Punch Board.  It’s so easy it’s ridiculous.  Check it out here!  So, I made that holder, and then I decorated it according to her request!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Joyful Season and Vintage Leaves on an XL Pillow Box!

Good Sunday morning to you all!  We’re getting a little taste of Fall here in the A-T-L.  We slept with the windows open last night – first time this season and it was wondrous!  Hopefully we’ll get an actual “Fall” this year – fingers crossed!

I have a share today that combines quite a few of the wonderful new products in the 2015 Holiday Catalog.  I wanted to try the new Square Pillow Box Thinlits – but I wanted to do a large one like we’d done at our Amy’s Inkin’ Krew meeting a few weeks back. And, in the catalog, they’ve got a sample Pillow Box in which they’ve incorporated one of my favorite new things – the Woodland TIEF.  So, it was kind of a shoe-in, really!  Add in some embellishments with Vintage Leaves and Leaflets Framelits, and a sprinkling of Joyful Season….and, well…take a look-see:
