Quilted Christmas Suite …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared our Retreat welcome and a touch of our Friday evening celebration, but now it’s time to open up the bags and break out the stamping!!

We kicked off our stamping with the Quilted Christmas Suite … it has everything coordinating and fun!! And with our Retreat Theme: Home for the Holiday’s … Our first two cards were 3 x 3 note cards (for gifting).

We used the Quilted Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and the totally fun Stitched Felt Embellishments!

We continued with another 3 x 3 note card and them embellished the Pizza Box to coordinate with our cards.  The perfect gift for a teacher, co-worker, your quilting friends … any friends, or yours to keep!

For the Pizza Box … we broke out the coordinating dies and cut out … do you believe this, a coordinating pattern to give our paper dimension!

This is an amazing suite of products that coordinate perfectly and bridges the quilting world with the stamping world.

This is just the tip of the iceberg … stop back tomorrow as I share another project we did with this suite and one of our Swap Cards!!

Thank you for stopping by today …

Hope your day is a good one!

Halloween Week: Treat Boxes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick -n- sweet little treat for you today! I’m showcasing our Acetate Boxes! These boxes are a quick -n- easy way to share a sweet little treat with a neighbor or loved one.

Our first little box is found on page 195 of the Annual Catalog and is perfect to share a yummy treat with. The belly band around the box is from the “Halloween Nights” Designer paper  … even the cute little pumpkin was cut from another sheet/pattern of the designer paper.

The larger acetate box can be found in the Holiday Catalog on page 13, and holds a little bit bigger type of treat! I’m sure that you can think of all types of goodies to put inside. Again the belly band is from the “Halloween Nights” Designer paper … and so is our cat. The cat is actually punched out with our new cat punch, also found in the Holiday Catalog on page 53.

So if you’ve got some specials little ghouls or goblins that are expecting a Halloween treat … make them something special in just a wink of the eye!

Thank you for joining me today for this little treat …

Have a great day!

Giftable Greetings

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Enjoy the floral vibe, drenched in sunset colors! We’ve included everything you need to make eight multi-occasion cards. Say thanks or express your love to someone in need. What makes this kit truly unique is it was, as the name implies, designed to be giftable—tropical flowers adorn the delightful box, with a gorgeous coral ribbon to complete the presentation. With kids headed back to school, the Giftable Greetings is a great way to say “thanks” to a special teacher.

More on Birthdays

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share another video that highlights a birthday card kit!

Stampin’ Up! trainer Brandi and her daughter Lily Jane, share some tips and tricks for the Birthday Bright Project Kit–a brand-new kit in the 2017 occasions (spring/summer) catalog.

I thought it was so cute to see Brandi’s daughter Lily Jane showing us how to make this card.  You’re never too young or old to stamp!  My granddaughter started stamping when she was 4 years old … and I have many stampers that are well (shhhh) we never tell a women’s age!!

This kit is awesome and the cards are so cute!  Twelve cards with envelopes and 12 gift tags and the cute storage box… wow! Don’t forget the envelope template … how neat to have that for all your future mailings.  I now have this on my next order!! Let me know if I can order one for you, or just click on the pictures below and you can shop directly from my on-line store.

Thanks so much for checking out my blog today.

I hope your day is a good one.

Today’s Stampin’ Supply List …

 

 

Gift Giving with the Mini Treat Bags

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

If you’re looking for a cute way to create gift giving bags, we have the answer for you! The Mini Treat Bag dies are quick and easy to use, and great for holding a treat or gift card.

Sit back and enjoy the video, and then I will share a cute idea for a Holiday Gift Card.

Make a few mini treat bags with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits dies, a Big Shot and your favorite Designer Series Paper. These mini treat bags are cute and so fun to give to away.

On our Holiday Bag, the original designer Alecia Connelly used the new “Holly” Impressions Folder to create texture on the bag.  Alecia is a fellow demonstrator that I was introduced to by being part of the “Leaders” private Facebook page that Stampin’ Up! set up for all demonstrators that are at the Silver Elite level and above … it’s a great place to get stamping ideas and tips for running our stamping businesses.

I asked Alecia if it was OK if I cased her project, she said “share, share, share away!” … This was our Friday Night project at the Holiday Star’s Retreat which I hosted for my downline (the ladies who signed up as demonstrators with me). Gent’s are welcome too! Our group is called the Star’s by Design.

The “Tin of Tags” stamp set and Stitched Framelits were used to create the greeting and focal point to the front of our package.  The holly comes from the “Holly Berry Happiness” stamp set … both of these are my “GO TO” holiday stamp sets!

The inside phrase also comes from the “Tin of Tags” stamp set!  To hold the gift card on, you can use the half punch that is discontinued, or you can do what I do and just stick a couple glue dots on the back!  They hold the card on great and come off easily by rubbing on them a bit (or you can use your adhesive remover).

Hope you enjoyed this cute Holiday Gift Giving Idea. I thank you for stopping by today.

Stay warm and have a wonderful day ~
