Mini Pizza Boxes … All Decked Out!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are doing well.  It’s finally warming up here but it’s coming with rain … however, I’ll take the rain over the blizzard conditions to the west of us!! Stay warm my friends!

Today I’d like to share another Sale-a-bration item … The Mini Pizza Box and the many different ways it can be decked out (and stuffed) Did you know two good sized cookies fit in there!!

First lets team up the Pizza Box with another Sale-a-Bration item, the “Home to Roost” stamp set.  How cute are these two items together.

Next … I would like to share one of my mantle gifts from a past Stamping Retreat.  I turned the pizza box into a “gift box”… and I embossed the top flap!! Did you know that you can use your folders to emboss the cover of the pizza box.  I decked it out with a silver glitter bow on top and rhinestones on the front … they were so pretty!

A project that our attendees made were these festively decorated pizza boxes with three gift tags tucked inside.  These also made a cute little gift, whether they wanted to share them or keep the gift box with tags for themselves … we had a blast making them and they were pretty easy to make.

Let’s move away from Christmas and head over to a birthday celebration … this cute box is surely filled with lots of happy surprises and birthday wishes.  The pizza box is paired up with the “Postcard Pals” stamp set, and I know of few of my grandchildren who would love to get this for their birthday ….

If you don’t have little kids or grandchildren to deck out one of the pizza boxes … why not try the “One Wild Ride” stamp set with it.  What a fabulous way to deck out a gift card, certificate or hey … cash!!

I hope you enjoyed the five fun ways to decorate your pizza boxes … they’re so cute I wonder if they’ll even care what’s inside!  With just a $50 order, you can add these to your goodies for FREE.  Or … if you have more supplies you need to stock up on, you can add that handsome Rooster as well.

Thank you so much for spending part of your Wednesday with me …

Have yourself and awesome day.

Create Christmas Cheer

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh my gosh … I have the cutest cards to share with you today. These cards were shared with us (demonstrators) from Stampin’ Up! and it wouldn’t be nice if I kept these cuties to myself.

You’ll recognize these samples from the Holiday Catalog and can be found on page 38. You will also notice the Buffalo Check background stamp (I will be sharing some samples & tips on this in a future post).

Here is the “Spirited Snowman” … Give these holly jolly snowmen a place in your home. They deserve it! And they will prove themselves useful!

He just looks like he is having snow-much fun!! And so can you when you a head start in your stamping schedule and get started on your seasonal cards! Using just one stamp set, Spirited Snowman. Stampin’ Up! created these three different cards… the versatility of the set is enhanced with different coloring themes and techniques.

Each one is so cute in it’s own way … I love the two snow-people hugging and the sample on the far right, so cute and so simple to make.  Stamp your snowman … emboss your snowflakes with clear embossing powder … and then sue your watercolor pencils to add color to the background and then blend it with your Aqua painter!  When you blend the watercolor pencils the clear snowflakes will now “pop” out and look white (looks like magic!).

Thank you for spending a part of your Thursday with me …

Enjoy your day!

Simply Sunday: Christmas Cards Made Simple

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Have you’ve been meaning to make Christmas cards year after year but you just run out of time or you don’t get as many made as you’d like to, let me help … Today my Simply Sunday post is to share beautiful yet simple cards that will be easy for you to get those cards done.

Pretty right!? The base of the card is the Gold Foil Edge Cards & Envelopes!! You can find these on page 11 of the Holiday Catalog and you get 20 of each (card base & envelope). Then I simply cut a front to emboss, you don’t have to … you can go directly to the greetings which are from the “Merry Christmas to All” bundle. It can be that easy!

If you do want to step it up and create some texture on the card, the front is 5″ x 3-3/4″ then run it through the BigShot with your favorite embossing folder.  I used the “Tufted” but the new “Swirls and Curls” embossing folder that is part of the All is Bright product suite, either would work great!  The new Seasonal Wreath would be pretty too!

The “Happy” is heat embossed in gold and the “Holidays” is cut from the Gold Foil paper, again both are from the Merry Christmas to All Bundle from the All is Bright product suite found on pages 4 and 5 of the Holiday Catalog.

If you want to step it up a bit …

So in they style of keepin’ it simple, I am still using the Gold Foil-Edged cards, envelopes, and the Merry Christmas to All Bundle with the Gold Foil Sheets, BUT instead of the Vanilla cardstock … I’m using Cherry Cobbler cut to the 5″ x 3-3/4″ card front.

The Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Designer paper adds a beautiful layer to your card with ease. This pattern reminds me of poinsettia’s.  You know, this would be pretty over the Vanilla paper too! This amazing laser cut paper has Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other … how cool is that!?

I’m so happy and grateful that you’ve taken time out of your Sunday to sit with me a while.

Enjoy the rest of your day, and I’ll see you tomorrow.

A Walk through the Winter Woods …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sometimes we look for holiday cards that are a little on the simple side, earthy, more masculine … well, today is the day for you. I have a wonderful card to share with you that I created using the Winter Woods stamp set.

I started this card using Very Vanilla cardstock … base is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ background that I embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It adds such a nice texture to the card.

I stamped the birch in Soft Suede on a piece of 2-3/4″ by 3-3/4″ Very Vanilla and then I tied a bow around it … to keep the natural look of the card I used the Burlap Ribbon and pulled it apart!! Love the way it adds so much texture to your card.

I chose to mat the tree with the beautiful Joyous Noel Glimmer paper (Merry Merlot) and measures 3″ x 4″, just to add a little holiday color -n- sparkle.

The greeting comes from the Winter Woods stamp set so no need to look any further, and is stamped in Merry Merlot to coordinate with the glimmer paper. To finish it off, I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.

A nice simple layout with touches of texture and dimension to bring our nature scene alive… and a touch of holiday bling!!

Thank you for taking a stroll in the woods with me today, hope you enjoyed the view!  I’ll be back tomorrow with my Simply Sunday series.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Mele Kalikimaka (Hawaiian Christmas Song)

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sending you warm holiday wishes with our So Santa Stamp Set. Have you ever wondered what Santa is doing in his spare time? Well, here are some snapshots …

The card I’m going to share with you today is quite fitting for the Incentive Trip that Stampin’ Up! has planned for us … we are currently stamping towards Maui!! Warm breezes and Palm Trees swaying … doesn’t that sound perfect right now!!  So here is Santa saying … Mele Kalikimaka!

Here’s Bing Crosby (one of the first to record this song written in 1949 … it also features the Andrew Sisters) Blast from the past 🙂

Just some fun for a Tuesday … hope you enjoyed.  If your interested in finding out how you can go on an all expenses paid trip for two to Maui, contact me – there is plenty of time to earn this trip yet.

Thanks for stopping in, see you tomorrow ~
