POCKET CONCERTINA BOOKLET WITH YOU’RE A PEACH PAPER!

Yesterday I shared the Concertina Card that I made for my daughter’s 21st. Today I wanted to share with you this special little booklet I made. Of course using the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper.

It was just a little booklet with some inspirational sentiments for her.

It’s small in size and tied up with some Pale Papaya ribbon. The peach is cut from the You’re A Peach paper.

When you open it there is a little concertina piece. I have held it down here in the photo with the Bone Folder so I could take the photo.

Folding out the strip of card there is a special sentiment on each section. I used a number of different stamp sets for the sentiments and for the images.

This was really fun to create (and made from the heart to my gorgeous girl).

I will share the dimensions for it another time. I only have them in metric at the moment.

Hope you like it.

Hope your week is going ok wherever you are in the world. Thanks for visiting me and take care.

21ST BIRTHDAY CONCERTINA WITH YOU’RE A PEACH PAPER!

I just wanted to share a special card with you today. Yesterday my gorgeous baby girl was 21. I can’t believe where that time has gone. We are a little peach crazy in our house with perfumes and creams and all kind of Peach Scented products. So of course it had to be the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper.

I wanted to make the card a little different and found a sweet concertina style card. It’s just a little bigger version than a regular zig-zag type fold.

Here is the card from a few different views.

The ’21’ was diecut from the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper from Sale-A-Bration using the Large Numbers Dies (now retired but really I can’t get rid of those). The peaches were diecut from the paper.

I found how to make this style of card from Suzie’s blog -> HERE. The measurements are in imperial. I used those measurements as I was short for time so I haven’t got them in metric as yet. I will make another card later to share those.

I made another mini version of a concertina card as well that I will share in the next post. It is so sweet so you will want to see that.

Have a great day,

Jenny

CREATE A PINWHEEL TOWER CARD + VIDEO!

For our Friday Flicks today I show you how to create a Pinwheel Tower Card.

You might have seen these around. I have been fascinated with them and wanted to have a go. They are so easy – and they look so cool. You will want to try one yourself.

I have used the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Tidings and Trimmings Bundle.

Here are each of the other panels.

It can easily fold flat. This particular size is too large for a standard envelope but you can create your own OR cut the panels 2cm (3/4″) thinner and it should work.

I have the video below for you or it is now on Youtube to view. I give the measurements for them in Metric and Imperial but don’t stress I have the measurements below.

PINWHEEL TOWER CARD MEASUREMENTS

There are a number of versions around. This one was based on Karen’s card -> HERE.

Tower Base – 17cm x 14.8cm 7″ x 6″ Scored at 2.5cm, 5cm, 7.5cm, 10cm (1″, 2″, 3″, 4″)

Panels – 3 @ 7cm x 14.8cm 3″ x 6″

Designer Series Paper Pieces – 4 @ 14.4cm x 6.6cm 5 3/4″ x 2 3/4″

– 4 @ 14.4cm x 4.1cm 5 3/4″ x 1 3/4″

Hope you get to make one yourself.

The Tidings of Christmas paper is one that is reduced at the moment in the Paper Sale. This finishes on Monday. So not long to save 15% on it.

You can find it in my store -> HERE.

Have a great day,

Jenny

2021 ANUAL CATALOGUE KICK-OFF PHOTOS!

I recently held my Annual Catalogue Launch. Once again I forgot to take photos of the lovely people who came but I thought I would share the projects.

I made some cute gift tags up for the treat bags. These were using the Color and Contour Bundle. I used some of the lovely new Incolors for them.

Here is a close-up of each of the colours.

They were put inside of a cello bag which had some Memories and More cards and some Pale Papaya ribbon. The Ombre Incolor bags had some Sticky Notes, teabags and of course chocolates. I love that everything can be matchy-matchy. 🙂

Each guest could make up an Incolor Bookmark. The flowers were punched out using the Flowers and Leaves Punch. Such fun!

Next post I will share the cards each guest made. That was lots of fun too.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

WILDLY HAPPY EASTER BASKET AND CARD!

Have to share with you 2 of the projects we made at our Easter Class last week. Add a little bunny from the Wildly Happy stamp set and it works out just cute for Easter.

We made another gift box too which I might show at another time.

The bunnies were coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. The paper is from the Sale-A-Bration Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper Pack. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings set.

This long Gift box you can make for yourself. I found it HERE on Sarah’s Blog.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

STAMPIN’ UP! BUTTERFLY BIJOU MINI TREAT BAG + VIDEO!

Today’s project and video is a little different. I have a cute Mini Treat Bag for you. It’s using the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. I also have a couple of other versions in this design.

You can check the video below and I have the measurements further down so you can refer back to it.

Here is the Mini Treat Bag.

Notice the bottom edge? I diecut the “hatch” type die on it. Whether you stamp or diecut on this you will need to do this before you assemble the bag.

I added a detailed Diecut butterfly from the Brilliant Wings Dies set cut in Mint Macaron. I diecut a stitched circle with the Stitched Shapes Die between the butterfly and bag to help separate the 2 so the butterfly doesn’t get lost on the bag.

Here is the video. If you receive this post by email the video may not show so be sure to head to my blog to catch the video or heat to Youtube.

I made 2 other versions too. A sweet one with the Dandy Garden Suite. It’s a great way to use the dandelion paper. Also one with the Whale of A Time Designer Series Paper.

MEASUREMENTS TO MAKE YOUR OWN MINI TREAT BAG

Box Base: Card – 21cm x 7cm. Score on the 21cm side at 7cm, 9.5cm, 16.5cm and 19cm.

DOVE OF HOPE CHRISTMAS DECORATION!

I wanted to share this project with you today. This was a bonus project for our class last week. I saw these gorgeous Christmas decorations on Pinterest -> HERE.

I changed it up a bit. Rather than using the Gold Hoops I cut 2 circles from Gold Foil cutting the centre out of them too. Then layered them back to back. It still works well. I added some Vellum behind the wings and tail to add a little softness.

I think everyone liked it. I like how it is hanging in our Christmas tree. 🙂

Happy Christmas to you. I hope you have a wonderful, festive time and remembering the wonderful gift of peace and hope we have been given.

EASY CHRISTMAS GIFT BOX

I received a really sweet gift box last week for a Secret Santa gift. I just had to show you.

It’s quite a large size and is a great one to use your 12″x12″ paper.

Want to make one yourself? I think it’s like the one Sara made on her Facebook Live last week. See it -> HERE.

Hope all your last minute crazy Christmas plans are going ok?? I still have wrapping to do and the house to clean and food to cook. It will happen. 🙂

Take care,

Jenny

IT’S A WRAP WEEKEND – GIFT PACKAGING IDEAS!

Over the weekend on my Facebook and Instagram page I held a “It’s A Wrap” Weekend. I shared a number of ideas to quick, cute gift packaging. I’m sure many of us are still scrambling for last minute Christmas gifts and packaging them. I thought I would share them here in one post.

Before the weekend of sharing started I shared this cute tag and gift bag. If you are in a hurry just grab a white handled bag and add a cute tag. I used the Peace and Joy Bundle for this one.

Have some gift boxes around. Wrap around some pretty Christmas paper and add a cute tag and ribbon. These ones used the Gold Pizza Boxes and the Kraft Shipping boxes.

I shared this gift box last year. It used the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper. It is a tall gift box so you can fill lots of little treats or a small gift inside. It is so easy to make too. Just a tip: Be generous with the ribbon. It makes it look really lush.

I have the tutorial for this box -> HERE.

Like the gift boxes you can fill a little tin or a glass jar. Tie around some ribbon and small embellishment. The great thing with this one is that they can use the tin or jar later.

Lots of gift ideas I hope will help you. I have more to ideas later too.

It’s a bit late now to order the tins or boxes for Christmas but you can order them and stash them away for next year. The tins are greatly reduced too.

It’s crazy times. Hope you are doing ok.

Still time to get some extra bling for later too.
