POPPY THANK YOU TAGS!

On the weekend for my special Poppies class I made each person that came a little Thank You tag for coming.

They are just simple tags but you don’t need to do a lot with these poppies.

The top of the Whisper White tag is punched with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch with some Petal Pink Metallic Edge ribbon through the top.

After cutting the poppies,  the Petal Pink solid flower was sponged with a little Petal Pink ink and then the outline poppy in Poppy Parade was adhered over the top.  There was just a little strip of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper across the bottom.  The leaf cut in Granny Apple Green is actually the “leaf” or base for the small poppy bud but I think it works well as a little leaf.

The “splotch” stamp is from the Painted Poppies Stamp set and the Thank You from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.  

Sweet tags in no time.

I showed you all about the gorgeous Poppies products in yesterday’s Sunday Suites.  Did you check them out?

You can head to my shop now -> HERE and see them.

Happy Stamping,

ALL DRESSED UP BACKPACK!

Have you seen these cutie bags around the internet?  They are made with the All Dressed Up Dies from the Best Dressed Suite.  So sweet. ❤

This is one I made for my presentation at Onstage.  By changing the handles you can make it in to a backpack.

I kept it simple and didn’t add a tag on this one but it is easy to do.  You don’t need too much with this gorgeous paper from the Best Dressed Designer Series paper. 

Cut the buckle out using the die and add that to the strip before adhering the handle to the bag. To add the handle, adhere one end of the strip inside the front of the bag.  The other end, fold over the end a little and then adhere this to the back of the bag checking the position of the handle so you have a little curve happening.

A few people have commented about cutting the paper with these dies that they tend to be “cutting” rather than “scoring” on the bag.  I would suggest play around with the layers on your diecutting machine. You may need a shim on the top of your plates.  Alternatively, if you have a soft mat place that as your top cutting plate making sure the die is facing down as you don’t want to cut the mat. 🙂

Others have asked how tall these bags are. They are tiny.  It stands at the height of the Tombow multipurpose adhesive.  If fits the small notecards in which is about 7cm (3″) high.

Happy playing.

SUNDAY SUITES – BEST DRESSED SUITE!

Sunday Suites are back for 2020.  This week since I have been sharing projects with the Best Dressed Suite let’s have a closer look at the whole suite.

I think the Best Dressed Suite is a really fun one and can be quite classy too.

This is what is included in the entire Best Dressed Suite Bundle.

The Best Dressed Suite Bundle includes:

* Dressed to Impress Photopolymer Stamp Set (10% off)
* All Dressed Up Dies (10% off)
* Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper
* Mint Macaron 1/8″ (3.2 cm) Sheer Linen Ribbon
* Best Dressed 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Note Cards & Envelopes
* Best Dressed Tassels

Colours used in the suite are: Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Lovely Lipstick, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, Mint Macaron.

Let’s have a closer look at the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  It is gorgeous.  One side has stylish images, the other side has floral prints either large or small.

One thing I learned when preparing my projects for Onstage was that the larger floral prints have been designed with white spaces around the flowers so you can easily fussy cut them to add directly to your projects.  I will share more about that on another post.

The Best Dressed Notecards and envelopes make really quick note cards to give to others.  They have a partly printed “swoosh” on the front of the card and the envelopes are printed on as well.  There are 24 in total with the cards and envelopes and they come in Daffodil Delight, Purple Posy and Petal Pink.  They are really sweet.  They are little cards measuring 3″x3″ or 7.6cm x 7.6cm.

What about some samples with these mini notecards.  These are straight from the catalogue. The notecards fit nicely inside the bag too so that gives you an idea of the size of the bag.

The All Dressed Dies are really fun.  They make the sweetest little bags.  You can change them up anyway you like.  See the samples below.  I have created a few fun bags already that I will share with you soon.

Don’t forget the Best Dressed Tassels as well.  There are 18 in total. 6 each in Petal Pink, Pretty Peacock and Whisper White.  With the White ones too you can colour them with the Stampin’ Blends or sit them in a little dish with reinker and water.

In the dies set is the long stitched die.  It’s great for the handles on your bags or I have used it as an edging but what about this fun idea.  Add the strips to the front of a card to create added texture.  This card sample is from Stampin’ Up!

So what do you think of the Best Dressed Suite?? Fun hey??

TEAM CHRISTMAS SWAPS!

It was the last team meeting for the year on Wednesday.  I wanted to share the swaps I received.  I have to say I didn’t get to make any swaps for this time but people were very generous in giving me one.

Firstly, this tag set is from Bonnie.  She made a cute little holder for the 6 tags.  There were lots of different stamp sets used to create these tags.

Christmas treats and a tag.  I liked the way Barbara made the tag using the Christmas Gleaming stamp set.  They are all lovely.  I am sorry I don’t have any directions for the little chocolate box.  The window is cut using the Stitched Rectangles  dies though.  It is really sweet.

Then an origami ornament from Vanessa.  I have seen these a few times recently.  I have wanted to make one but as yet haven’t had a chance.

You can see how to make them in this Youtube link -> HERE.

It might be too late for you with these for this Christmas but be sure to PIN them or save the ones you like ready for your creating next year.

Thanks for visiting me,

Have a great weekend,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #91 – CUTE APRON GIFT BOX!

Today’s Wednesday’s WOW!#91 I have a special project for you.  It’s an apron gift box. 

I shared this project at my Onstage presentation back in November.  I was honoured to present the Best Dressed Bundle in Sydney.  I will be sharing other projects with this bundle in the coming weeks but thought you might like to see this project.

It might be fun to make up a little gift box for someone.  If you are a Demonstrator it might be great as you start planning your Catalogue Launches in January.  I have made it in to a little Stampin’ Up! apron which is quite a novelty but you could use other card or paper and make a really pretty box.  I am sharing the template and the details below.

So many people loved this cute little bag at Onstage and also when I have shared it on some Facebook groups I am on.  Now here it is for you.

This is made with the All Dressed Up Dies.

Cut one bag front from black card.  Trim the side off the diecut bag and also the bottom tab so you are left with an apron shape.  Also cut 2 of the stitched strips from black card to use as the straps.

Here is the back of the bag.  I created a little box so you can fill it with small treats  It’s a very simple box.  I will share the template below.  The straps are attached at the top of the apron, crossed over and attached inside of the box at the back.

BOX TEMPLATE

Below is the template to create the box.  Cut your card 10.5cm x 12cm (4 1/8″x 4 3/4″).

Score on the short side at 4cm, 6.5cm (1 1/2″, 2 5/8″). Score on the long side at 2.5cm, 9.5cm (1″, 3 3/4″).

Cut up on the tabs on the short sides.  Fold on all the score lines.

Add adhesive to the outside of the small centre tabs on the short side.  Fold up to form a box.  Add more adhesive on the tabs as needed.  Adhere all together.

Place adhesive on the back of one side of the box.  Line up the bottom edge of the box with the bottom edge of the apron at the back to be sure it is straight. Adhere the straps on the apron and box.

I cut the small stitched sentiment shape to create the apron at the front and added a small logo from the Follow Your Art Washi Tape.

I hope you like the cute box/bag.  It’s a lot of fun to create.

This will be the last Wednesday’s WOW! for 2019.  We will have a couple of week’s break over Christmas and New Year and be back in 2020.  I look forward to sharing more with you in the new year.

If you have any suggestions of what you would like to see for future Wednesday’s WOW! then drop me a comment.

Happy creating,

Jenny

SNOW GLOBE SEAHORSE!

You have probably seen the Still Scenes stamps and the Snowglobe Scenes dies in the Holiday Catalogue along with the Snowglobe Shaker Domes.  These make fun Christmas cards and we had a great time using them in a class recently.  You can use these products not just at Christmas time.  I was looking around on Pinterest and found some fun ideas using other occasions stamps.

For this one I used the Seaside Notions stamp set to make a fun snowglobe.

To make this I diecut the circular shape with the die in the set on the white card then embossed it with the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder.  I used a small piece of white card and traced the circular shape on to the white card in pencil so I could see the area to stamp on to.  Then adhere one of the Shaker domes in to the embossed white card from behind.

The images were stamped on the scrap white card in Memento and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

To assemble the card the stamped white piece was adhered on to the Seaside Spray Card mat.  Then carefully add a little glitter. I used the Ice Stampin’ Glitter and also some Snowflake Sequins. Remove the backing off the Snowglobe Shaker Dome and carefully position it on to the Seaside Spray card mat.  Then you can adhere the whole piece on to the White card mat.

To finish stamp the base in Smoky Slate and cut that with the die and raise that up off the card with Dimensionals.  Stamp the sentiment from the set on to scrap white card and cut this with the Ornate Frames Dies and also cut one in the Silver Glimmer Paper.  Cut the silver one in half and adhere that behind the white one to off-set it . Adhere that on to the card and add a bow from the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon. 

The Still Scenes Bundle will be carried over But as individual stamps and dies.  If you buy them now as a bundle you will save 10%.  See them -> HERE in my store. 

Thanks for visiting me today,

Happy Stamping,

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE TAGS!

Over the weekend I had my last class for the year.  It’s been a fun year of creating, sharing and laughs.  For our last class we made a Christmas box and 6 tags.  I thought we would have a closer look at the tags.

We made 2 of each of these tags using the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  They were certainly loved by everyone and I think they will grace many presents this Christmas.

What else did we use?

Itty Bitty Christmas, Christmas Gleaming Stamp set, Snow Globe Scenes Dies, Rectangles Stitched Dies, Stitched Shapes Dies, Detailed Trio Punch, Banner Triple Punch, Delightful Tag Topper Punch, Sprig Punch.

Hope they might inspire you with your Christmas tags.

The Christmastime is Here Suite of products are still available.  I would grab that paper. It is great not just for Christmas.

See them -> HERE.

Have a great week,

CHRISTMASTIME TALL BOX!

The Christmastime is Here Suite has been with us all month.  I have been so busy with projects for Onstage that I haven’t had near enough time with it.  I have been using the papers particularly though.

Recently I made a tall gift box using the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I have had lots of lovely comments from class members when they see the box so thought you might like to see it yourself.

I love that this paper has the gold embossed outlines over one side of the paper.  There are 3 different designs in the pack with some type of gold touches.  It is gorgeous.  AND I love that this paper could easily be used for any occasion not just Christmas.

Here is the box I made.  Fill it with chocolates for a lovely friend, wrap around some of the gorgeous Gold ribbon and add a sentiment piece.  What more do you need.

The sentiment is from the set A Big Thank You.  The flowers were fussy cut from some of the paper.

Here is how to make your own Tall box.

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE TALL BOX TUTORIAL

Cut card to 21cm x 21cm (8 ¼” x 8 ¼”)

Score on one side at 5cm and 19cm (2”, 7 ½”)

Turn and score on the other side at 5cm, 10cm, 15cm and 20cm.

(2”, 4”, 6”, 8”)

Card mats for the side: 4 each of 4.6cm x 13.6cm (1 7/8” x 5 3/8”)

Designer Series Paper: 4 each of 4.2cm x 13.2cm (1 ¾” x 5 ¼”)

Scraps for decorating.

Gold Ribbon

1. Fold on all score lines.

2. On the long side cut up on the score lines to the score line that runs across. This creates your tabs to fold up. Cut up each tab on both the top of the card and the bottom. The smaller tabs will be the bottom of the box. The larger tabs will form the top of the box.

3. On the short side of the card cut on the 2 score lines that are on the very narrow tab. Cut off completely the top tab and the bottom tab so you only have a narrow tab section in the middle.

4. Adhere the paper pieces to the card mat pieces and adhere them all to the sides of the box. You can adhere them after the box is assembled but it is a little easier to do it first.

To assemble the box:

5. Fold the score lines to form a box shape. Place adhesive on the outside of the narrow side tab and adhere the box together. On the small tabs at the bottom place adhesive on the outside of 3 of the tabs and fold in adhering them together on top of each other. Fold the last unglued tab over the top.

6. The top flaps will fold in and will hold together with wrapping the ribbon around.

7. Decorate the box as you like.

***

Hope you make one of the boxes for yourself.  They are very easy.

Not much time left to get any of the gorgeous Christmastime is Here products.  Don’t miss  out on this paper especially. 🙂
