Latte 12 weeks Header

We are now up to Week 8!!! Today’s project is brought to you by Libby.  This is very cute!  Libby has made a bag with a shaker frame on the front, a Star Gift Box and two cards to pop inside the bag.This would make a lovely gift to give someone before Christmas. 

12WeeksChristmas_Week8

Here is a closer look at the bag.  What a great idea having the Shaker Star on the front!

The shaker frame is made using the Stars Framelit Dies, ‘Many Merry Stars’ Photopolymer Stamp Set, Confetti Stars Punch with Red Glimmer Paper and Frosted Sequins.

The bag itself is made using the ‘Under the Tree’ Speciality Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue.

The Star Gift Box has a small Kit Kat Chocolate inside it and would be great as a stocking filler or a teacher gift, teamed with a bottle of wine or a coffee voucher etc.

The two cards also use the ‘Many Merry Stars’ Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Stars Framelit Dies with the Big Shot.

This card uses layering of stars and Dimensionals to give depth and dimension. Both cards are stamped inside and the envelopes are also stamped.

The last card uses the nesting of the Stars Framelit Dies again to make a frame of Gold Glimmer Paper which adds some sparkle to this card along with the Frosted Sequins.

MORE CRAFT FAIR PROJECTS!

I am away this week but thought I would schedule a few posts for you – so you don’t miss me too much 🙂  The last couple of months I have done a few Fairs and School Fetes so I thought I would show you the projects I have made for these.  Previous posts for these on my blog have been really popular (and I will add the links at the end if you have missed those).  I know when I have done these I have searched around the internet looking for ideas so I am sure you might do too.

Here are some of the projects I have recently made.

Firstly, I made up some Gift Card Holders.  These are very useful at Christmas time I think as many people give Gift Cards as gifts.  I used the Envelope Punch Board and made it to the Gift Card size holder on the measurements.  These were decorated with all kinds of stars.  Some of the stars had been sitting around my desk so it was a good way to use them.

P1140680

Many people give money as Gifts too so I thought it would be nice to dress up the cash instead of just sticking it in an envelope.  I found this idea on a blog somewhere and I am sorry I am not sure where now though.  I did adjust the measurements to make a better fit for our size notes. I have the instructions just below.  Just check your own currency note size to fit.

P1140677

P1140678

MONEY HOLDER  (in metric).

Cut card to 18cmx18cm.  Score on one side at 8.5cm and 17cm.

Fold on the score lines. Punch a half circle on the front flap with the 1″ circle punch.  Add Sticky Strip or other strong adhesive along the narrow tab and fold up on the score lines and adhere together. Decorate as you like.

Insert

Cut card 8cmx16cm. Punch out 2 1″ circles from co-ordinating cardstock fold in half.  Staple one on each end towards the edge of the card to allow the note to slip in on either end.  Remember just to check the measurements for your own currency.  You can’t see but I stamped the insert front too.

Now how can you forget your furry friend.  These were very popular at my fairs.  I just cut the topper from the Top Note die and folded it in half.  The stamps are from the the set ‘D is for Dog’.

Stop by again in the next few days I have some more projects to share with you.

CURVY KEEPSAKES HANDBAG!!

I am sure you have seen all the amazing creations around using the Curvy Keepsakes Framelits. They are so clever.  I have been making some projects myself with them and I will show you these another time.  When I first saw the Framelits I thought it would make a cute little handbag. Recently I have seen some floating around the internet.  I thought I would show you my Christmas version – and it uses the set ‘December Wonder’ that I have been focusing on this past week.

P1140939

I am sorry I didn’t take a side-on view.  It would give you a better idea how it looks.  I will try and update this later. To create the bag I have used some of the Nordic Noel DSP.  I just cut the paper to size to fit half of the Framelit, the section with the curvy handle.  I cut 2 of these out.  Where the base is I trimmed off about 2cm (3/4″).  I added Sticky Strip to one of the bases and assembled the two together.  You can add some little chocolate treats and tie around some ribbon and add a tag.  For this tag I stamped the “Very Merry” in Garden Green and punched it out with the 1″ circle punch.  I cut one of the Oval tags that come with the Curvy Keepsakes framelits from the Gold Foil Sheets and layered them together with a little Real Red banner cut from the Bitty Banners Framelits.  I added 3 small pearls on the tag to finish and hung that from the ribbon with Whisper White Baker’s Twine. A cute treat bag in no time!!

I hope you enjoyed the projects this past week with the ‘December Wonder’ stamp set.  It is a fun set.  This is available in the Holiday Supplement Catalogue but these products are only available stocks are limited.  So get in soon for any of these items.  You can order directly from me or from my store HERE.

I hope you can join me again this week.  I will be away on a Family Holiday but I have some posts scheduled so don’t forget to stop by,

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 7!

Latte 12 weeks Header

It is my week this week to bring you the 12 Weeks of Christmas project.  I am excited to share this project with you.  Today I have made some Christmas Ornaments that you can make to hang on your Christmas Tree this year, or to give as a gift to someone special.

P1140933                P1140754

These were really hard to take photos of and I apologise for the reflection.  I would have spent an hour and a half taking photos inside and out trying to get the best ones.  These turned out the best and I liked them being outside hanging off our bushes as I hadn’t got our Christmas tree up yet – and didn’t want to do that just yet!!! 🙂

I have been looking out for these clear Ornaments for  the past few years but never able to find them but I came across these a few weeks ago. (Thanks Lynda for the tip!)  For locals these were from RIOT Arts and Crafts.  For other people you might be able to get them from your local craft store.

I discovered how to create these from a little blog surfing getting ideas from a few different blogs so today I thought I would show you.

CREATING YOUR CLEAR CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS

1. On a piece of Acetate draw a circle in NON-PERMANENT MARKER. (This is really important so you can wipe this off afterwards).  Add a little square tab piece at the top.  The size of your circle will depend on the size of your ornamment.  These ornaments were about 7cm (just a little less than 3 inches).  The circle I drew was about 6cm (just over 2 inches).  To draw your circle you can trace around a circular object or a circle die.  I used the base of a container.

P1140730

2. Once you have drawn your circle you can cut it out and then wipe off the marked circle with a tissue.

3. Stamp your image in Staz On on the acetate circle.  This image is from ‘Get your Santa On’.   Now you can’t colour this on this surface with the Blendabilities as it reacts with the Staz On.  Turn over your circle and colour your image from the back with your Blendabilities.  You might be able to see too on my image I added some dots of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details on the wreath circle and hanging wreath on the chimney to add some sparkle.  This was added on the front of the circle.

P1140696

For the snowflake Ornament I stamped the image in White Staz On.  This snowflake is from the stamp set ‘December Wonder’ from the Holiday Supplement.  (It is marked as a Project Life set but don’t just dismiss these if you don’t do Project Life.  There can still be some great images in these sets).

4. To insert the acetate piece in to your Ornament you need to roll up the piece in to a tight roll and squeeze it in through the top.  Be sure to have the tab piece at the top and hold that as it gets further in to the ornament.  This piece will sit in the top of the ornament to keep the piece in place.  As the circle unrolls you many need to give it a little spin around or you may have to get a pen or the Paper piercer down to jiggle it around in place.

P1140735

You can add some little embellishments in the Ornament as well.  For the Santa one I punched some stars with the Confetti Stars punch from Real Red and Gold cardstock.  For the Snowflake one I added some sequins (snowflakes and silver sequins) from the Frosted Sequins Embellishment pack in the Holiday Catalogue (p 22).  I also added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and shook that around in the ornament.  This stuck to the sides of the Ornaments giving it a “snowy” effect I guess.  Then you can replace the cap and tie some ribbon around the top and a ribbon loop for them to hang off your tree.

Now if you are giving this as a gift to someone it would be nice to dress it up a little, so I have a Gift Box for you.  This is using the Kraft Gift Boxes in the Annual Catalogue (p 200).  These Ornaments fit just nicely in them.  You would need to check the size of the Ornaments you are using though.

P1140809

I decorated the sides and top with Designer Series Paper. This is from the Nordic Noel DSP pack from the Holiday Catalogue.

P1140815

Finish this off with some Red Satin Ribbon and a tag.  This makes a nice gift to give someone.

P1140823

Here is a close-up of the tag.  I used ‘December Wonder’ stamp set again.  The JOY is punched with the oval punch on Real Red.  I cut a label in Garden Green cardstock from the Chalk Talk Dies and then ran that through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. Then I layered these together. I finished it off with a Frosted Sequin snowflake and a Rhinestone.

P1140821

I hope you like these and can get hold of some ornaments to create your own.  Now as with our other projects I have put together a Bundle for you. (Not available to order as a Bundle through my Online Store).

This weeks Bundle includes: 

December Wonder Stamp set (Photopolymer)        136562      $27.95

HEXAGON DECEMBER WONDER!

Here is another card using the set ‘December Wonder’.  I thought the Hexagon ’25’ would work well with the Hexagon Punch.  I did find a card similar on Pinterest that inspired this card.

P1140934

I punched out some Hexagons with the Hexagon Punch from the ‘Nordic Noel’ DSP and lined them up on the Lost Lagoon piece.  To get the ’25’ in the right position I punched a Hexagon from scrap paper, added some 2 way glue to the back and let it dry a little so it was repositional.  Then I placed it in position in the centre, removed the DSP hexagons and then punched out the shape over the scrap paper one.  The stamped ’25’ was placed behind the Lost Lagoon card using Dimensionals to raise it up a little.  I adhered the rest of the Hexagons in place and stamped the Snowflakes over the card.  This piece was adhered to Whisper White card with Dimensionals and then adhered to the Lost Lagoon card base.  I finished it off with some Rhinestones and Silver Ribbon bow.

Thanks for stopping by to visit today.  Do say ‘Hi’ and let me know where you come from.  I love to hear from you.

Christmas, Classes, Stampin' Up!

DECEMBER WONDER CHRISTMAS!

I was playing around with a new stamp set last week ‘December Wonder’ from the Holiday Supplement Catalogue.  At first I dismissed the set because it was marked as Project Life – and well I don’t do a lot of Project Life and certainly not Christmas. (Did you think that about the set too???).  Then I had another look at it and thought it is still such a great set for your cardmaking. There are some really great images.  I will show you a few projects over the next few days with the set and you can see what you think.

Here are the cards I first made.

P1140726

These cards were inspired by a card on Pinterest that used ‘Endless Wishes’ but I don’t have that set.  (Yes really!).  I stamped the small and large snowflake on the bottom of Whisper White card. Stamped the greeting from the set and then pierced holes around the card with the Paper Piercer and mat.  I tied around some ribbon, added a snowflake embellishment from the Frosted Sequins Embellishments in the Holiday Catalogue and added a Rhinestone to the centre.  Quick cards that you could reproduce in a hurry.

The colours I used were Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake with the Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon and then for the second one Lost Lagoon and Crumb Cake with Lost Lagoon Satin Ribbon.

Here is the stamp set for you to check out if you haven’t already noticed it in the catalogue. 🙂

Stay tuned for some more exciting projects with this set this week.

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 6!

Latte 12 weeks Header

We have another great project for you for Week 6 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas.  Today’s project is this very cute Advent Calendar by Narelle..  It is such a clever idea!  

Advent Calendar

Now this Advent Calendar is a little different to your normal Advent Calendar that is filled with sweets and small treats. This one is made up of little pouches, each with a tag inside. You can write anything you like on the tags, or you could add Gift Vouchers etc into the pouches. Now because there are little pegs to hold the pouches onto the bakers twine, you will need to make sure you don’t put anything heavy in them.  And for the big day, Christmas Day, there is a gorgeous box which can contain a small gift.

Advent Calendar box

In my Advent Calendar I have written something on each day that corresponds to the day number. The idea is that the child takes out the tag each day and on it is written things they can experience and claim throughout the year. For example, the tag may have on it “10 trips to the Movies”. They keep the tag and throughout the following year they can claim these 10 Movies. They simply keep count on the back of the tag how many times they have claimed it already.

Advent tags

I love this idea as it is a gift that keeps giving throughout the year and it isn’t all about buying gifts. A lot of the tags are about experiences and spending time with the child. And let’s face it, it also eliminates a lot of sweets that children really don’t need at this time of the year with all the extra treats around already.

Advent bags

Advent tags 1_2

Advent tags 10_11

Advent tags 19_20

Aren’t these little pouches cute that Narelle has made.  And what a great idea to have little “gifts” that aren’t sweet treats??  I know that this is not how Narelle wanted it displayed as there was sickness in her house this week but I think it is a cool idea – and she has done an awesome job 🙂

If you would like to get instructions on how the different elements were created like the box and the little bags, then just drop me an email or comment and I will get that to you.

If you want some ideas of some “non-sweet” gifts then here are some ideas. Narelle tailored these to her daughter and include a lot of her favourite things but they might just work for you too. 

1  trip to the Zoo
2  friends sleep over
3  favourite restaurant visits
4  trips to the drive-in
5  dates with Mum
6  dates with Dad
7  pizza cooking nights
8  trips to the beach
9  bowling games
10  baking sessions with Mum
11  trips to the local pool
12  trips to the Movies
13  shopping days with Mum
14  popcorn and movie nights at home
15  sightseeing drives
16  Youghurtland frozen youghurts
17  stories read by Mum
18  stories read by Dad
19  games of UNO
20  Ice Cream Sundaes
21  craft sessions with Mum
22  trips to the Library
23  family board game nights
24  trips to the park

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 5!!

Latte 12 weeks Header

The weeks are flying by! We are up to Week 5 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas now.  This week’s project is brought to you by Virginia.  Today we a have a project to show you how you can use My Digital Studio (MDS) to create your own projects. This is great when a stamp set you are after or one that has retired it may be available in MDS. You can print these out  and colour them using your Blendabilities.

PartSnipOfLO1a

Virginia has created a Hybrid Scrapbook page.  She has used the Poinsettia and Leaf from the ‘Joyful Christmas’ digital stamp Brush set (#135269).  You can print these out using your Microsoft Word programme but you need to print them out using an inkjet printer on Whisper White A4 card stock.  Virginia worked out how many she wanted to colour in and printed a number of them at a time.

     JoyChristmasBrushStampSetDigital                                         49325592b

Colouring is so easy using the Blendabilities  to colour in the Poinsettia  in two sizes and the leaf in 3 sizes. These were coloured using the Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate Blendabilities alcohol markers. The lightest of the Smoky Slate being used to help give more shading and depth to the colouring.

BlendiesColouringSnips1a

Next after colouring them in, Virginia cut them out with a small pair of paper snips.  Or you may use an electronic die cutting machine if you have one and you are comfortable using it’s print and cut functions.  After she cut them out, she gave the backs of the coloured and cut out image a bit of ‘burnishing’ with the stylus using the scoreboard and bone folder. Doing this makes them more 3d looking.  Just a tip: put the Stampin’ Piercing mat underneath as cushioning.  

To Create the page:

Wirg _ scrap photo

Virginia took three rolls of washi tape (Watercolour Wonder set, main catalogue) and put a strip of each along two edges of the 12×12 so they crossed over in the bottom left hand corner.  These three different rolls of Washi tapes are perfect for any occasion but really shine on a Christmas layout. She layered the black and white photo onto Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Using the ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ stamp set you can stamp the paint splatter with Cherry Cobbler ink to create a background. The coloured in images were then placed around the sheet of 12×12 Whisper White card stock and were adhered using Dimensionals and snail adhesive.

The year 1994 is from the cork stickers from the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot Accessory pack. Using the finest of the Project Life journaling pens, Virginia did a little journaling between the lines of the washi tape.

If you would like a full copy of how Virginia created this layout including how to print out from either MDS or Microsoft Word then send me a message or comment and I will send it out to you.

Now for this week’s special, how about this:

For $70.00, purchase the Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight sets of Blendabilities, the Color Lifter and get the Watercolour Wonder Washi tape pack FREE!

That’s $70 plus postage with Free washi tape (valued at $8.95)  Contact me to place your order!

12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS – WEEK 4!

Latte 12 weeks Header

We bring you another Christmas project this week for our 12 Weeks of Christmas – and today it is my turn to share a project.  I do hope you like it.  Today I have a Tiny Treat Gift Holder for you.

P1140690This little Treat Holder will fit a variety of treats all together for you to give someone special this Christmas.  Really it is just so simple.  I have used 3 of the Tiny Treat Boxes available in the Holiday Catalogue.  These are a bargain at $11.95 (AUS) for 24 boxes.  They are so cute and there are so many different ways you can use them.  This would be a really cute gift to give someone as a little extra or for those “Hard to buy for” people.

For this I have adhered 3 of the boxes together with Sticky Strip and then decorated them using the Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper.  I have added some stars from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and cut with the Star Framelits. Additional stars were cut from Gold Foil Sheets with the smallest Stars Framelits.  The gorgeous Red Satin Ribbon finishes the box off.  Of course, you can decorate these boxes however you like.  Fill some Cellophane bags with treats and tie them off.  I used the Gold Twine for this.

If you would like a detailed tutorial to create this project then just drop me a message or email.  If you need any products to create the project then let me know or you can order directly at my Online Store Here.

And of course, we have a special bundle for you this week to help you create this project. These are the items you will receive in your Bundle AND receive 10% off!  

Bundle Price is $44.80 plus Shipping and Handling.

I hope you like today’s project.  I would love to see your version when you create it so make sure you drop me a photo.
 
Happy Christmas creating!!
 
Jenny
