….and the Hive

Hi!  Back today with another project featuring the Honey Bee Suite!  This time, it is paired with the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box!

Bees, Hive, Mini Curvy Keepsake, Honey Bee, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

Aren’t these adorable?  I got this idea from Demonstrator Doris Pichler and just had to make some!  The hive fits perfectly on the sides of the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box!  Cute, right?

Just stamp the hive on all 4 sides of the box before you assemble!  The big bee on top is cut in half and attached with a glue dot on each side of the handle so that the recipient can still open the box.

The hive is stamped with Crushed Curry ink.  The bees are stamped with Memento Black Ink and colored with the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Blend.  Three Hershey Nuggets or 5 Hershey Kisses fit inside.  I am sure Bit ‘o Honeys will fit as well, but I didn’t have any on hand.

Oh, and yes, the Mini Curvy Keepsake Dies – which debuted in the Holiday Catalog ARE STILL available for purchase!  Sweet, right?!

Just click on the product below to order your own set!

Don’t forget, a $50 purchase (prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE Sale-A-Bration item – like the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper.

A Little Winter Inspiration

Hi! This week I am featuring the Let It Snow Suite in the Holiday Catalog!  I hope you enjoy it!

To kick it off, I have this adorable Kisses Gift Card Holder for you!

Gift Card Holder, Kisses, Snowmen, Let it Snow, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #Holiday2019

I truly fell in love with this suite in the Holiday Catalog and I believe you will, too!  Who couldn’t use a cute way to present a gift card!  (And a little chocolate!)

The snowmen are from the Let it Snow Designer Series Specialty Paper.  The sentiment and snowflakes are from the Snowman Season Stamp Set.  The beauty of this bundle – it comes complete with stamp set, punch, specialty paper, and embellishments!  So many uses for this suite with the upcoming holidays.

The base of this project measure 6 3/4 x 9 3/4″.  Here’s where to score:

On the 9 3/4″ side, score at 2 3/4″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″, 7 1/4″, 8 1/4″, and 9 1/4″

On the 6 3/4″ side, score at 1″ and 5 3/4″.

Cut off the sides from the top to the 5 1/4″ score line.

Cut off the two small bottom tabs.

Cut in on the 6 1/4, 7 1/4 and 8 1/4″ score lines.

Here’s a template to show you what your card stock should look like when you are done, and the placement of the Tear & Tape to make the box:

I Am Over The Moon

to be back!  Sorry for the hiatus, but life was a bit crazy over the summer and I had to take a break from blogging.

Have you seen these cows? I am also Over the Moon for them!!  They are just adorable and so fun to play with!  Here’s a cute treat holder – thank you Kim Quade of Kim Plays with Paper for the adorable idea!

Treat Holder, Over the Moon, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019annualcatalog

And these Cow Tail candies are the perfect treat to go with this adorable guy!  The cow is stamped in Jet Black StaZon ink and the spots are colored with a Basic Black Marker.  To go with the candy, I added Pumpkin Pie for his bell, tail and the little tuft of hair on the top of his head.

The sentiment is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White card stock and punched with the Classic Label punch.  This is layered on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.   The topper itself is a 3 x 4 1/4″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock scored at 2 1/8″ and folded in half.

The treats are placed in a 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane bag.   These little guys are headed to a craft fair next weekend.

Animal Love

Hi! As promised, I am back today with a cute Treat Holder featuring the Animal Outing Suite in the Annual Catalog.

Valentine, Animal Outing, Treat Holder. Stampin' Up!, SU!

Is this little file folder not the cutest?  I saw this idea a few years ago by Becky Roberts but hadn’t yet tried it.  So happy I remembered it!  These are very easy to make and can be done quickly.

The File Folder is 3″ x 5″, scored at 2 1/4″ and 2 1/2″ on the 5″ side.   A piece of Designer Series Paper 2 1/4″ x 3″ is also needed.  To see how to turn it into a folder, watch this video – it is the second project shared:

The animals are from the Animal Outing Stamp set and are colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The Rhino and Giraffe were stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and die cut using the coordinating framelits.  Stampin’ Blends were used to color the animals – Smoky Slate both light and dark, Calypso Coral light and Pool Party light were used for the Rhino and bird while Daffodil Delight light and Crumb Cake light were used for the Giraffe.    You can order the stamps and dies as a bundle and save 10%!

No Adhesive Needed!

Hi!  A little spring cheer for you today with this No Adhesive Needed treat holder!

Hershey Kisses, Butterfly Gala, Gingham Gala, Occasions 2019, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I demonstrated how to make this cute box in last night’s Wednesday with Teresa Facebook Live.  It is the second project in this video:

The size of the Designer Series Paper is 4 1/2″ x 5″.

Score on the 4 1/2″ side at 1″ and 3 1/2″.

Score on the 5″ side at 1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″.

Then in the second and forth square on the top and bottom, score diagonally.

Here is the template with the score lines showing:

It is pretty easy to make.

The Butterfly is colored using sponge daubers and Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist ink.  (Ok, so I did use Glue Dots to adhere the butterfly to the ribbon)…  But no adhesive was used to make the box itself or to keep it closed!

The ribbon is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and is FREE when you place a $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) order in my on-line store.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!

Trick-or-Treat Halloween Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the Team Stamp It Halloween Blog Hop!  You are sure to find tons of inspiration for Halloween Fright!

My project today is this adorable mini milk carton!

Halloween, Treat Holder, Mini Milk Carton, Stampin' Up!, SU! #stampitbloghop

Isn’t it adorable?  I love the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper – perfect for all your Halloween crafting!  In this project, I’ve paired the paper with the Seasonal Chums set in the Annual Catalog – don’t you love when you can use new products with existing ones already in your collection?

To make the Mini Milk Carton, you need a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ piece of cardstock or Designer Series Paper.

  • Score on the 8 1/4″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″.
  • Score on the 5 1/2″ side at 1 1/2″, 3 1/2″ and 5″.
  • Along the 5″ score line, make a tick mark at 1″ and 5″ along the 8 1/4″ side.
  • Use a ruler and a stylus to score diagonal lines between the 5″ and 3 1/2″ score lines from the 1″ tick mark to the lower left corner at the 3 1/2″ score line and the lower right corner at the 3 1/2″ score line.
  • Repeat above step for the 5″ tick mark.    See picture for clarity: (Dotted lines are score lines, solid lines are cut lines)

  • Cut off the lower right corner that is 1/4″ by 1 1/2″.  (Already removed in picture)
  • Create angle cuts on the top and bottom of the remaining part of the tab.
  • Cut up from the bottom to the 1 1/2″ score line at 2″, 4″ and 6″.
  • Fold on all score lines.
  • Place Tear & Tape along the tab and close the box.
  • Use Tear & Tape to seal the bottom.
  • Decorate as desired and use Baker’s Twine, Linen Thread or a Galvanized Clip to close the top of the box.

For the decorations, I used the pumpkins from Seasonal Chums.  It is stamped in Jet Black StaZon on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  The stem is colored in Crumb Cake, the leaves in Old Olive and the face in Basic Black.

Here’s a closer view of the front and back:

Halloween, Treat Holders, Mini Milk Carton, Seasonal Chums, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghop     Halloween, Treat Holders, Mini Milk Carton, Seasonal Chums, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghop

On the sides, I die cut bats using the coordinating Seasonal Tag Framelits from Basic Black card stock and colored with Clear Wink of Stella:

Halloween, Seasonal Chums, Mini Milk Carton, Treat Holder, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghopI used one of the new Galvanized Clips to keep the top closed after filling with Halloween Treats such as Dove Milk Chocolate Caramels and Reese’s Peanutbutter Ghosts.   The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black ink on Crushed Curry cardstock and punched with the Classic Label punch.  Black solid Baker’s Twine ties the tag to the clip.

I just love how this turned out and will be making a few more to give out to family, friends and co-workers.

Toil & Trouble

Fun with the Cauldron Bubble bundle and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper!

Halloween Treats, Cauldron Bubble, Toil & Trouble DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This past week’s Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live featured the Cauldron Bubble bundle and coordinating Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper to make these fun Diaper Fold treat pouches!

To make the holder, you need a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper!  And then you can embellish any way you choose!  I used the coordinating Cauldron Bubble Stamp set and dies to make these.  Did you know, the dies cut some of the images perfectly from the Designer Series Paper as well as the stamped images?  How cool is that!

Here’s the video showcasing this fold:

Throw Back Thursday – Halloween Style

Hi!  Today I am showcasing a treat pouch made using some retired Halloween Products.  I am working on some goodies for a craft fair and decided it would be good to use up some retired Designer Series Paper I had laying around.

Diaper Fold, Halloween Treat Pouch, Cookie Cutter Halloween, Stampin' Up! SU!

These little guys are from the Cookie Cutter Halloween Set from a year or two ago.  I loved this set – they are just adorable.  The diaper fold pouch uses a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper and is pretty easy to put together.  These little guys will hold a mini candy bar – perfect for giving coworkers, friends and neighbors.

Here’s a closer look:
