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,

3D projects, Christmas, Classes, Stampin' Up!

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.

ELEGANT CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE!

You have read about the Christmastime Is Here Suite.  I have posted about it a little.  It’s a limited edition suite available now until the supplies are out.

I received the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper recently and just had to try it out.

With this gorgeous paper you don’t need to do too much.

One side of each print has beautiful Gold embossed lines. I cut around one of the larger images on one of the designs of paper.  Layering this on another of the gorgeous prints and layering that on some Mossy Green card.

The sentiment was heat embossed in Gold and diecut with a rectangle from the Rectangles Stitched Dies.  I showed a post or 2 back how you could layer this sentiment on to one of the diecut frames in the Ornate Frames Dies.  I just love that effect.

Grab this Suite – or the items individually – now while supplies last.  Find out more about it all -> HERE.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny
