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.

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.

I wanted to share this project as my little Christmas gift to you. HAPPY CHRISTMAS. I have a video to help you create it. It’s now on Youtube too. (Be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel too so you can get notified of videos I post).

This card is a Triangle Easel card. I have made a number of them over the years. They are really easy to make. I am using the Dove of Hope stamps and Dies. I am so sad these are leaving us.

I will add the measurements below too so you can follow along later.

ONSTAGE @ HOME TEAM DAY!

Last weekend was the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event @ Home. It was sad not to meet together but a few from my team got together which was a lot of fun.

It was lovely of Sarah to open her home up to us and we could watch the big TV screen together with all the sessions and chat about them. There is always lots of ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’. 🙂

We had a card display and I made up some gifts for my team.

Here are the little gifts. I included a Stampin’ Up! file folder with some Stampin’ Up! hand-outs, a clipboard (great for all those sessions notes), and I made up a little pack with a highlighter, sticky notes and a Stampin’ Up! magnet. These were all gifted in past Stampin’ Up! convention bags.

These were little table gifts for the tables. I made them up using some retired pillow boxes and decorated them with the new Dandy Garden suite. These are some gorgeous new products coming in the 2021 Occasions Catalogue starting in January. I thought this sentiment was good as we start out on a new Stampin’ Up! year.

Of course one needs to be hydrated at these events so I made up some bottle tags using the cute Zany Zebras.

Just some of the name tags. Sarah created these which were great!

And then you must have Prize Patrol right. We had drawings over the 2 days for some fun prizes. And that was in addition to the Stampin’ Up! giveaways over the weekend.

Some card displays with the Curvy Celebrations and the Curvy Christmas stamp set, the Dove of Hope and a few other stamp sets.

The Dandy Garden Suite. I will share closer views of the cards over the next couple of weeks and months. I think you will love this suite.

The Poinsettia Petals card samples created by Sarah.

Getting some creating going on with the Dandy Garden project. I will share those with you very soon.

Some of my JEN’s INK Team. (A socially distanced photo. 🙂 )

Recognition was announced. I was so pleased to achieve Sales and Team Building Recognition for this past year. Thank you to you all for your support and encouragement and Thank You to my wonderful team.

Thank you to you all for your support and encouragement whether you order from me or cheer for me from near and far. I appreciate you. Thanks for visiting my blog. And of course Thank You to my wonderful team.

If you would love to be a part of these fun get togethers then I would love to welcome you to my JEN’s INK team. I go on about the discount a lot but really being with Stampin’ Up! means a lot more. It’s connecting with so many “crazy” people like you who get excited about stamps and ink. You can find out more on my page HERE of 9 Reasons why you need to join the Stampin’ Up! Family.

Keep creating,

Jenny

SUNDAY SUITES – MAGIC IN THIS NIGHT SUITE!

We don’t really celebrate Halloween in Australia. There is more and more decorating and Trick or Treating over the last few years though. I don’t usually make Halloween cards. I thought it would be still good to check out the Magic In This Night Suite for Sunday Suites because there are some hidden gems that are great for other occasions.

Firstly, this is the full Magic in this Night Suite Collection. ($155 AUD)

This Collection includes:

Hallows Night Magic Cling Stamp Set
Halloween Magic Dies (10% off)
Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder
1-1/2″ (3.8 cm) Metallic Mesh Ribbon
Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper
Iridescent Pearls
Black Glitter Paper

See some of the gorgeous (or creepy) projects you can make with them.

Let’s look at the Hallows Night Magic Bundle.

Now this might be a Halloween set but check the dies. There are a number of them that can be used for any occasion like the frames and the pretty border. There is even a flower die and leaf.

You could make this table setting for any occasion.

Below we have the Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper. I love that some of these prints can be used for any occasion. The black/grey and white would make striking projects.

The colours in the papers are: Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Pretty Peacock, Whisper White.

Another fun product in this suite is the Metallic Mesh Ribbon. This ribbon is very light and adds that elegant touch to your projects. Why not wrap it around your gift boxes like in the projects below.

There are a couple of other products in this suite not to overlook.

The Black Glimmer Paper is so sparkly. I have seen some striking projects made with this for other occasions even Christmas. Sparkly black diecut Christmas trees look amazing!

Don’t miss the Iridiscent Pearls either. These would add some sparkle even in black.

What could you use for your next non-Halloween project??

Thanks for ordering with me. Happy creating,

UNDER MY UMBRELLA MINI CARD BOX

Yesterday I shared the swaps I received at our Team Recognition Day. Today I wanted to share with you our project we made.

It is a very cute mini card box made with the Gold Pizza Boxes and 3 little cards and envelopes. It was designed by our team leader Vanessa. I just have to show you.

This shows the mini cards inside the Gold Pizza Boxes. I love seeing them peek through the window.

To cut the window in the Pizza Boxes, use one of the circle dies in the Layering Circles Dies set. From the piece of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper cut the scallop circle then use the same size circle as used on the box to cut the centre out of the scallop circle to layer over the window. Place a piece of acetate inside the box window.

Here are the mini notecards. They had a piece of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) on the card front. The cute umbrellas from the Under the Umbrella stamp set were stamped on the pieces of DSP and punched out. The boots were hand-cut. A strip of the DSP lined the back of the envelopes. I realised now too that I forgot to trim the paper on the envelopes to curve them. I will fix that up but keep that in mind when creating them.

Isn’t this just a cute set. It makes a lovely gift.

Any of these products are available in my store to create them or if you need any other products.

TEAM DAY SWAPS!

Last week we had a Team Recognition Day for the Inky Fingers Team I am in. It was a lovely day of creating together especially as we hadn’t been able to meet together for so long. We chatted and created and were recognised for our achievements this year.

This was all the lovelies in our team who attended the day.

Clare our DDM (Demonstrator Manager for Australia) was there. It is always so lovely to see her bubbly self. 🙂 This is also with Sarah one of my team members who came along too. It was so great to share that with her.

Vanessa our team leader gave some of us a little gift. There were particular requirements to attend the day and those who achieved the requirements TWICE received this gift box with some special ribbon and embellishments. I was so honoured to receive one.

The boxes are the Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes. Isn’t it gorgeous!

Below are the swaps I received. I didn’t make any swaps. We only found out the day before and I really didn’t have time to get anything together but people were so lovely to share some of their swaps with me.

This is a little bar of soap in the little cellophane bags. It is a lovely idea instead of chocolate.

This one is created with the Dove of Hope stamp set with the World Map Dies. I love how these co-ordinate together.

This is a little treat bag. Another lovely gift. It’s a great size for a mini chocolate.

This card below was created by my friend Leonie. It’s the cutest mini Pop-Up card using the Warm and Toasty stamp set. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas.

The little tree inside is from the Most Wonderful Time stamp set.

Stop by tomorrow and I will share the cutest little gift box and mini cards we made as our projects.

Have a great day,

Jenny
