TEAM SHOEBOX SWAP – DAY 4!

OK, Today is my last sharing from our recent Team stamp day with Shoebox Swap cards.  I have a few various ones for you.

This one below is using that gorgeous Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper.  I have shown lots of cards using this paper recently.  For this card you don’t need much more than backing a section of the paper on to a strip of black card and adhering it to your white base card.  It makes it look so elegant don’t you think??  I think from memory the sentiment banner is a strip of white card and using the small circle punch to notch out each corner.

This next one is a fun fold.  Adhere a strip of the lovely paper, this one is the Nature’s Poem DSP, down the left hand side of the front of your card.  Punch a slit using the Classic Label Punch on the side of the card front.  You need to punch it twice to be sure that the dragonfly fits through. Punch it once near the top, then slide it down a little bit and line it up with the previous punch and punch it again.  A dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits was cut from Vellum and also from Cajun Craze.

This is the inside of the card.  The sentiments are from Better Together set.  It’s a cool card.

This card uses the lovely Love What You Do set, the Share What You Love paper and the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder.

This is a cute little treat bag below.  It is very quick to make up.  This is based on Pootles bag -> HERE.

I hope you have so enjoyed these little projects from our team day.  We are getting ready for another get together in the next few weeks.  Hopefully I don’t take as long to share those with you. 😉

Hope your weekend is going awesomely.

CHRISTMAS GIFT BOX WITH HOME SWEET HOME!

Not a lot of time left to get everything done for Christmas.  If you still need some quick treat boxes and you have the Home Sweet Home Thinlits then I have a very speedy box for you.

christmas-treat-box-_side

christmas-treat-box-_-front

I cut 2 pieces of the house Framelits shape from the Candy Cane Lane DSP.  It was then simply adhered together by folding on the score lines and placing your adhesive on the side tab and the bottom tabs to assemble.  I used Fast Fuse for this as it is strong.  Punch 2 holes in the top section and then you can thread some Real Red Baker’s Twine to close it.

I had a left-over detailed tag in the Merry Tags Framelits cut from Red Glimmer Paper. I could then quickly stamp a ’25’in Real Red from the Merriest Wishes set and I cut that out along with a circle from Early Espresso.  These were raised up off the box with Dimensionals.

You could easily make a few of these  in no time.  They might make nice place settings at your Christmas Dinner Table.

FRY GIFT BOX!

Just a quick one for you today.  I am heading off tomorrow to Sydney for the Stampin’ Up! Onstage event on Saturday.  Exciting!!! And the new Catalogue will be revealed.  More exciting!!!  🙂  Before I go though I thought I would show you another quick treat box I made for my markets last month.

This was the first time I have used the Fry Box after having it for some months.  I have used some retired paper for them. I have used the ‘All About Sugar’ stamp set to decorate them.

I thought they might be good for the boys.  What do you think??  Fill them up with some cool treats or small toys.

Thanks for visiting.  I will fill you in on what I can tell you from Onstage when I come back.

SKINNY MINI TREAT BAG HOLDERS!

A few weeks ago I shared the Easter Baskets I made for the upcoming Easter markets.  I made a few cute treat holders for the markets too.  I have been wanting to show you the project for a couple of weeks but with Easter and Sale-A-Bration there were so many other projects to show you. 🙂

These are really quick to make and you can use them for any small treats.  Here I have some little sherbet straws for the kiddies but you could add a chocolate treat or coffee sachet.  I have used some retired Designer Series Paper.

Aren’t they fun and colourful?? I have simply decorated them with some ribbon (retired) and cut the “enjoy” (which is in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set), from black card to add to the front.  Really they probably took all of one hour to make.  I didn’t have a lot of time but wanted something cute but inexpensive to add to my stall.

Do you want to know how to make them?

SKINNY MINI TREAT BAGS

1. Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) a little larger than the large section of your ‘Mini Treat Bag Thinlits’= 10.5cm x 15cm (4″ x 6″).  Cut the piece out on your Big Shot.

442

2. Score the large section in half vertically so at approximately 4.6cm (1 7/8″).  The photo below shows the DSP piece with the right side facing up. Cut off the left hand side on the bottom tab section.

Place your piece on your Paper Trimmer with the narrow side tab at the top.  Line up your zig zag edge at 2cm (3/4″) and score a line from the top edge and just to the score line in the middle.

444

Cut off the small tab on the top left with your scissors. (Which I hadn’t done yet in the photo). I like to taper the end of the long side tab to give a neater finish when you fold.

3. Fold on all the score lines and open out again. At the top cut down on the middle score line to where it meets the 2cm (3/4″) score line running across.

445

4. Fold again on the score lines so the folded flap piece is at the front and the taller section is at the back. Place adhesive on the right side (the outside) of the long tab and fold to adhere to the back of the bag with the tab section on the inside.  (It doesn’t matter too much if it is adhered to the outside. Just for a neater finish I like it on the inside).

Place adhesive at the back of the small bottom tab and fold over to the back to adhere down. (I wasn’t worried that this was on the outside at the back). Place adhesive under the front flap to adhere down.

Decorate as you like and fill it with treats you would like to give.

I hope this is easy to follow for you. Please let me know if you any questions.

Enjoy 🙂

YOU’RE SO SWEET TREAT BAG AND CARD!

Recently I showed you a card made with the ‘You’re So sweet’ set.  If you missed that just pop back 2 posts.  Today I have a gift bag and card I made with the set.

P1160816

I saw the Treat Bag on Pinterest initially and just changed it a little.  The paper is from the paper stack ‘Cherry On Top’.  I made the bag with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets.  The little star is in the set which I could cut inside the stamped star.  How neat!!  I just added a star strip cut with the star die in the set in Crushed Curry and a DSP banner.  The greeting label is cut with of the little dies in the Thinlets set too.

Then I made a card. Using some more of the ‘Cherry On Top’ Paper Stack I added a strip down the side of the Cucumber Crush base card.  I stamped the greeting banner from the ‘You’re So Sweet’ set first on Crushed Curry in Crushed Curry and then on Whisper White in Bermuda Bay.  I cut the white one out with the banner framelit in the Treat Bag Thinlets and cut the Crushed Curry one out by hand.  It needed something else under the banner so I cut a strip of Watermelon Wonder card and flagged the ends.

P1160817

See the cute balloons?? I made them with the 1″ circle punch and the owl punch.  I punched out the bottom part of the owl and trimmed it and adhered that piece under the punched circle.  I added some White Baker’s Twine underneath.  Cute hey!! Sorry I think so anyway 🙂

I think they  make a cute gift set what do you reckon?

Here is the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets.  I like all the “extra bits” that come in the set.  They are so versatile.

CATALOGUE LAUNCH REVIEW!

I thought I would share some of the things from my launch on the weekend.  It was such a fun time and I am sorry if you couldn’t make it. 🙂

Firstly, I have to show you my butterfly wall.  It is a bit hard to photograph.  The lighting is not the best.  It is a bit overcast today when I took these photos.

P1160845

I will show you some close-ups. I have used the Butterflies Thinlets and the cute new Incolor Blossom Accents.

P1160830

P1160832

P1160848

These are some of the treat bags I made for my lovely guests.  Sorry I didn’t take photos of all the flower colours.  These were last minute things as my order didn’t arrive until the 11th hour. The glue was still drying when the first guests arrived 🙂

I used the large Cello bags. I added some of the sheets from the ‘Cherry on Top’ DSP stacks and added a doily.  I cut some Balloons and banners with the Balloon Framelits and added a chocolate treat and some post-it notes.

P1160822

It is hard to tell in the photo but I ran the bag through the Big Shot with the Boho Chic Embossing Folder.

P1160866

Here is a close-up of the pegs for the bags.  I punched out a flower with the Petite Petals Punch and adhered a flower onto it with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  This was then adhered to a little peg.  It was a simple, cute idea.  I got the idea from a lovely friend of mine 🙂

P1160877

I thought I would share the Colour Comparison chart for the new Incolors.  It’s a good way to see how they fit in with other current colours.  (Once again sorry about the lighting!  I really have to do something about this). 🙂

P1160833

Next post I will show you the Make and Takes we did.  I think that is enough photos for one day. 🙂

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,

GOLD IS IN!!

Gold is the new HOT colour at the moment.  It is very in vogue.  Did you know that???  We have lots of lovely gold products in the Occasions Catalogue.  I played around with the new Gold Fancy Foil Vellum a couple of weeks ago.  It is available in silver too.  There are 9 sheets per pack (12″x12″ size sheets).  There are 3 each of 3 different designs.  They are just beautiful to use on their own or as a little addition to a card or project.  One of the projects I made was this cute little bag.

P1110208

It is always hard to tell the size by a photo.  So check it out against an Embossing Powder pot.  Isn’t it just the cutest???

P1110209

They are the easiest little bags and can be made up in no time. I have tied the bag off with some of the gold cord that comes with the ‘Good as Gold’ card kit from Sale-A-Bration.

These would make nice little wedding or party favours.  If you would like to make this bag you can get the instructions from Sam’s blog here.

Thanks for stopping by. Now go and get your gold on!!

CHOCOLATE EMERGENCY KIT!!

I can’t believe that we only have 2 days left for the Autumn Mini Catalogue.  These past few months have simply flown by.  When I was going through my photos I discovered I hadn’t shown you this little treat bag.  I made these up for all my lovely guests at the Autumn Mini Launch way back in April.  (See I am dragging the chain here!)  I just have to show you these because I thought they were really cute and a fun project to make up for a friend. Of course, you would probably add a few more M&M’s!!!  This is the ‘Chocolate Survival Kit’.

This is using the ‘Eat Chocolate’ set.  I have stamped it in Chocolate Chip (what else would you stamp it in!!!).  This was punched out with the wide Oval Punch. Then it was adhered to a tag from ‘Lots of Tags’ die using the “Autumn Spice” Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I just added it all to a bag topper from Chocolate Chip Cardstock.  I discovered this verse on SplitcoastStampers and just had to add it to the back.

I think we would all be suffering these symptons all at once just so we can eat the whole bag!!!

Now don’t miss out on any of the goodies in the Autumn Mini Catalogue.  Time is running out.  If you haven’t got a local demonstrator then you can contact me.  Also, finishing on Sunday is the Ribbon Bundle Special.  This is the Ice Cream Parlour Ribbon and co-ordinating buttons that you can receive for FREE when you place an order of $100 or more.  So hurry get your order in!

Have a good weekend.  I think the sun is meant to shine all weekend here which will be a nice change 🙂

Thanks for visiting!
