Happy Anniversary with Falling So In Love

All the products in the Falling In Love Suite from Stampin' Up! are so soft and beautiful. #stampcandy

I thought I posted this card many weeks ago, but it somehow slipped through the cracks. But I had to share it with you, because I think it’s just beautiful, if I do say so myself. I used products from the Falling In Love Suite and the So In Love Bundle, what I’m calling the Falling So In Love Suite (on pages 51 & 52 in the 2017 Occasions Catalog) to make this soft and pretty Happy Anniversary card. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for some big news about Sale-a-bration! Here’s what I made:   Here’s …

Faceted Box is Deceivingly Easy to Make

A sweet little gift box using First Sight and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

I made this faceted box last fall, I think, and I’m just now getting around to posting it. It’s much easier to make than it looks. I don’t remember where I learned to make these – there are lots of different tutorials out there. And they’re all adorable! If I had to guess, I’d say it probably started with Sam Hammond, a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in the UK. She makes lots of little boxes.   Here’s what I made:   Here’s what I did: See diagrams below, and click on the images to see them full size. Cut and scored with …

Sweet Little Hearts from the Basket Bunch Bunny

Precious little bunny sending love. Made with Basket Bunch stamp set and Layering Circles Framelits Dies by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

I’m calling this little sweetie the Basket Bunch Bunny. There are actually two bunnies in the Basket Bunch bundle, but I call the other one Chocolate Bunny, or Very Startled Bunny, or even Uh-oh-I-just-remembered-I-left-the-iron-on Bunny. So anyway, back to Basket Bunch Bunny. I thought he (I gave him a blue bowtie, so I’m saying he’s a he, at least for today) would look perfect amongst some soft pastel colors like Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky. By the way, the Basket Bunch stamp set, which is also available in a bundle with the Basket Builder Framelits Dies to save you 10%!   Here’s what …

And it’s too late to order anything for today anyway (but you can go ahead and order Valentine’s goodies for next year!)

Hugs & Kisses

  I’ve had so much fun playing with the new love themed products in the Occasions Catalog! It’s always fun making a card for someone you love. Today I’m sharing a Valentine I designed for one of my classes.   Here’s what I made:   Here’s what I did: The card base is Real Red card stock (CS) – I used the edge die from the Love Notes Framelits to cut the front edge of the card base. I glued a piece of Whisper White CS to the inside, which helps the heart edge show up better. I glued a …

It’s a Sliding Treat Box with a Twist Pop-Up Panel Card attached. Here’s what I made:   2017 The card opens to show fireworks and a panel with 2017, and the box slides open to reveal the goodies inside.     I made the one for my presentation (above) to fit a package of Reese Cups. To simplify things, I made the one for our team meeting (below) the size of a standard …

Christmas Box o’ Tags

  Today’s project is sort of a meta-gift. It’s basically gift wrap for gift wrap. Everyone needs tags for their gifts, right? I decorated this little box full of Christmas gift tags to give someone with a lot of gifts to wrap. Here’s what I made:     Here’s how I did it: The White Gift Boxes in the 2016 Holiday Catalog are 3″ x 3″ x 3″, the perfect size for so many small gifts. For this project I left the box as is, and decorated the clear acetate sleeve. I cut a piece of Presents & Pinecones Designer Series …

Mamie’s Gift

  Our former neighbors have a little dog named Mamie. I get her a cute outfit each Christmas. This year I didn’t find anything I liked, except a little knit hat. I can’t wait to get a photo of her wearing it! Of course, the hat needed just the right gift wrap. Here’s what I made:   Here’s how I did it: For the box: The White Gift Boxes from this year’s Holiday Catalog are the perfect size for a small gift like this. They are 3″ x 3″ x 3″ and come with clear acetate sleeves. I cut 5 pieces …
