A World of Good In Your Hands

 

The Annual Catalog Inspiration
My husband and I were supposed to go to Germany last month…a dream vacation we had been saving for years to take! While that trip is on hold now until 2022, I’ll take comfort in the World of Good suite to do some armchair travel or document past adventures.

This suite has an antique, old-world elegance and includes the Beautiful World stamp and die bundle, foil accented World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper, a coordinating Memories & More card pack, and antiqued embellishments that will make your projects rich in detail.

Get your adventures started with an out-of-the-box creation using a new Mini Paper Pumpkin box!

————————————————–

World of Good Suitcase Box

World of Good Suitcase Box
Cover the box with a piece of the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper, then use coordinating products to embellish.

TIPS:

*Use a Bone Folder to curve the card stock strip used for the handle. The Bone Folder will stretch and bend the paper fibers without creasing, giving you a smoother handle.

*Store treasures from a trip in this box: It fits nicely in a bookshelf and you can open it whenever you want to return to the memories it holds!

What’s New at SU! Sale-a-Bration Showcase

Whats new (2)

We are celebrating the final fling of Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration (ends March 31st) so our international group of demonstrator friends are squeezing the most of it for you today! You’ll find many projects to inspire you to get (at least) one more FREE S-A-B product (while they last).

I’m using three co-ordinating Sale-a-Bration products today: The Lovely Lily Pad stamp set, the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper and the Lily Pad Dies to create an illuminating gift for a friend:

IMG_4784-(W)

This little bag contains a tea-light holder and will express how much you appreciate someone who has shined a light in your life! I found the perfect sentiment in the Strong & Beautiful stamp set, though I forgot to add it to my supply list…

The measurements for the DSP inside the bag are 2-5/8″ x 12″ and scored at 3/4″, 3–5/8″ and 10-5/8″. I also made a small box for the bottom of the bag (sits inside the DSP to hold the candle) from card stock: 4″ square, scored at 3/4″ on each side. It takes a bit of patience to work the DSP + box into the bottom of the bag, but it works!

Now you’re off to see more pretty Sale-a-Bration projects…next up is Heather (or bounce back to Diane’s blog) and a full list of participants is found at the end of this post!

The Gang’s All Meer for Sale-a-Bration

sabheader.jpg

Sale-a-Bration 2020 is is FULL SWING and today I’m sharing a few projects made with the coolest Kats: The Gang’s All Meer stamp set was the first stamp set I chose for free with my initial S-A-B order! meer.jpg

Yesterday I demonstrated this card on my Lunchtime Crafting Live that happens each Monday on my Creative Juice Facebook Page:

IMG_4678-(W)

Isn’t that adorable? And it’s super simple to make.

I though it would also be fun to make a gift pouch from the Stampin’ Up! Pillow Boxes with these cute kats:

IMG_4069-(W)

It’s the right size for a gift card and candy bar, or jewelry and other small gifts!

Download the Stand Up Friend Birthday Pouch tutorial here

The Gang’s All Meer stamp set is only available during Sale-a-Bration 2020 and is FREE with a $50 purchase from my Stampin’ Store. There are many options for S-A-B rewards in addition to this stamp set, and remember that they are while supplies last, or until March 31, 2020! It’s the perfect time to stock up on your stamping supplies.

Thanks for visiting and take the time to create something beautiful today!

What’s New at SU! Birthday Dies

Whats new (2)

Paper crafters love nothing more than Co-ordination: We swoon for ribbon in Stampin’ Up! colors, we sigh over designer series papers that match our punches and we are head-over-heels when we have dies for stamped images so we don’t have to cut them out!

It’s February and our group of demonstrator friends from around the world are showcasing the NEW SU! Product Coordination release items and we are hoppin’ with excitement to share these projects with you!

The Birthday Dies were designed to coordinate with the Happy Birthday to You Sale-a-Bration Stamp set (which you could choose free with a $50 order before March 31, 2020). Notice the leaf dies: There are TWO leaves on ONE die! This is a great improvement, as tiny dies are too fiddly for me and having two of them together makes them much easier to use!

IMG_4637-(W)My project is a remake of one of my favorite gift packaging because our Acetate Card boxes are perfect for holding a mug cake mix. It’s sort of a “bake-your-own-birthday-cake” gift!

IMG_4640-(W)It’s a pretty, frilly & feminine project, and even though I did end up fussy cutting the sentiment, the dies helped the rest of it come together quickly.

IMG_4639-(W)These are products you will NOT want to wait to order because they are only available while supplies last and since they match some of our most popular items from the current Mini Catalog and Sale-a-Bration 2020, they are sure to fly off the shelves.

The supplies I used are listed below, and I’d love to hear what you think of this birthday box so before you hop along to the Anke’s blog next (or back to Diane’s project),  leave a comment then keep hoppin’ for more product coordination inspiration!

What’s New at SU! ~ Bird Ballad Lanterns

Whats new (2)

Greetings, friends: I’m glad you are here for our “summertime stamping” themed blog hop! The What’s New at SU! group is comprised of demonstrators from around the world who are excited to share the latest Stampin’ Up! ideas with you, and I know you’ll find inspiration to create your own versions (or borrow one of ours).

I love thinking of ways to use my paper crafting supplies for projects that are unusual, and when I think of summer, I think of barbecues and picnics with family and friends! So why not a little tabletop decor?

IMG_2303 (W)

The beautiful new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (DSP) was a fine choice for these paper lanterns and they were super simple to make!

IMG_2311 (W)

For the small round lantern, you’ll need a piece of 6″ x 12″ DSP. Score it at 1″ along the top and bottom, then cut vertical lines at every inch between the two score lines. Cut two strips of contrasting DSP 1″ x 12″ to reinforce the top and bottom edges, if desired, and a 1″ x 10″ strip for the handle. Wrap the paper around and attach the sides together at the back.  I inserted the handle between the lantern and outside reinforcement strip using Tear & Tape adhesive. I also curled the paper with my bone folder a bit to keep the round shape. Then I set it over a small jar with a battery-operated candle!

IMG_2309 (W)

This tall lantern is easier (if possible)! It’s a piece of 9″ x 9″ DSP and you score it at 1″, 4.5″ and 8″, then fold at the 4.5″ line and cut at 1″ from the fold just to the edge of the score lines:

IMG_2293 (W)

When you unfold the paper, it looks like this:

IMG_2294 (W)

Follow the same instructions for finishing this lantern. You could make them any size: I simply suggest measuring the jars you are going to wrap them around and cut the width to 1″ longer.

Now you are ready to party on to the next blog which is Terry’s (or back to Margriet’s blog)!

Your comments are welcome and appreciated! You can order the supplies to make your own lanterns from your demonstrator, or if you don’t have a demonstrator, please shop from my Stampin’ Store!

Spooky Sweets

It’s really an oxymoron, isn’t it? Spooky Sweets? How can something be scary AND yummy? I guess it’s the paradox of the whole Halloween season!

The Baker’s Boxes in the Holiday Catalog got me thinking: What could I fill them with? It’s so much fun to give something a bit bigger than a card!

bakers

The boxes are nice and large (4-1/4″ square and 2-1/8″ tall) and they are coated on the inside so your goodies don’t leak through. You can wrap the boxes with Designer Series Paper, spray them with a few drops of ink refills mixed with rubbing alcohol in the Stampin’ Spritzer or color them with ink using a sponge brayer, as I did with this one:

Watermarked1(2018-09-19-1342)

We actually made these boxes at our Fall StampFest events last month as one of the eight projects prepared for our guests…if you missed it, make sure you plan ahead to come to our Spring StampFest in either St. George (February 23, 2019) or Spanish Fork Utah (March 9, 2019).

You can make your own at home with these supplies:
Product List


Back to the question of “what can we fill the box with?”, I found a few fabulous treats that would be perfect to bake and fill for a gift:

 

Halloween Oreo Brookie Bars

Spooky Chocolate Vanilla Oreo Fudge

Monster Mash Brownies

I had to share all three because I couldn’t make up my mind!

Give a sweet treat for every season in our Baker’s Boxes: Here’s a Christmas version of the box using the Santa’s Workshop product suite!

Color Your Season: What’s New at Stampin’ Up! Blog Hop

whats new at su header

Have you ever been shopping and found something you love, but you hesitated and by the time you went back, it was gone? Don’t let that happen to you with the limited-time Color Your Season products! Join me as a talented group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world share why you NEED these products in your craft stash as we hop from blog to blog today featuring:

color_your_season_header

Here’s a classic example of the versatility of this bundle~ A pillow box gift: Perfect for a wedding gift or favor, or for a New Year treat!

Watermarked2(2018-07-31-1232)

The Kraft Pillow Box makes this project so simple! My favorite thing about the Color Your Season bundle has to be the labels: They come in 3 sizes (this is the smallest) and the stitching is on the label AND on the negative space (not shown in this example but you’ll see it along the blog hop).

Watermarked1(2018-07-31-1232)

While you could use the new watercolor pencils to color your projects, I chose to pull out my Stampin’ Blends. Did you know the Rich Razzleberry blends match the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon? It’s our color co-ordination shining through.

It took me less than 5 minutes to craft this project: Can you imagine? What a wonderful use of your creative time 🙂

Tell me how you like to color in the comments before you hop along to the next blog!NEXT

Fold-Flat Box

I have a great excuse for being MIA over the past 6 weeks: WE MOVED! Just to a new house in the same city, but downsizing was a big effort (one that we are continuing to work at…hoping I will be able to park in the garage before Halloween!)

July has TWO awesome promotions ~ I’ll share them with you just in time to take advantage of either or both:

DSP_SALE_ENG

Each Monday in July, I’ve been sharing ways to use Designer Series Paper in your crafting on my Facebook Live Lunchtime Crafting broadcast! Today I showed how to create this amazing Flat-Fold Box:

WARNING: You won’t be able to stop with just one box: These are addicting to make and you’ll want to make a whole bunch to have on hand to pop open and put together when you need them!

Along the long side, the score lines are at 1-3/4″, 5″, 6-3/4″ and 10″
Along the short end, score at 1-3/4″ and 6-3/4″

I used the Tropical Escape DSP for the top of the box and the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set:

You can mix and match Designer Series Paper during the sale so you can stock up on pretty patterns to compliment all your paper crafting.

Finally, how would you like to choose $192* in Stampin’ Up! products for just $99?

That’s what you get when you join my Stampin’ Team in July!

* $125 in products plus a collection of 10 ink pads
