Aren’t these a wonderful mix of colors?  We could also use Very Vanilla, Whisper White and Basic Black as our neutrals.

A color challenge is great for Lisa because she has a difficult time mixing colors.  She chose to create a traditional scrapbook page layout for today’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop.  Using all of the colors, except Cajun Craze, she created a beautiful “Love” page.  She utilized the Stampin’ Up! card stock to show case the colors Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Real Red and Early Espresso.  By adding a little splash of ink in the background with the  Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, it added just a bit of texture.

At least 3 of these colors reminded me of fall so I went ahead and made up some Thanksgiving themed items for our dinner table.  The first item was made using the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes.  They are so tiny and so cute!  I thought they would make a great place card/favor box for a Thanksgiving dinner.  I put trail mix in it but you could put candy corn or reese’s pieces or anything really.  The band just slides off the box so you can get into your goodies and then close it back up again.

I decorated it using the Vintage Leaves Stamp Set and Leaflets Framelits Dies.  I left the Delightful Dijon leaf without a stamped image so I could write my name for the place card.  The tiny open leaf is from the Flourishing Thinlits.

I love the little copper pinecone.  Just a great addition to the leaves.

Then I made a utensil holder using the Mini Treat Bag thinlit die.  I wrapped it with a piece of embossed Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I embossed it with the Woodland embossing folder and then sponged it with Early Espresso to really pop out those tree trunks.  The greeting is from a stamp set for the Holiday Catalog called Paisleys & Posies.

I did not have a punch or die that fit my greeting and fit nicely onto my utensil holder so I used a trick I learned to use your labels and get them to fit.  If you trim your paper to fit into the die exactly, you can put one side under and cut only that one side.  Then take out the paper and do the opposite side.  It’s a little confusing but hopefully the pictures will help.  I love this technique and use it often now.

I looped some copper wire behind the sentiment.  Here’s a picture of how we do it.  I’m glad I learned it this way because before, it was just a tangled mess and I didn’t like the look.

I hope you enjoyed this project and can get some use out of it.  Those clear tiny treat boxes really are uber adorable!  They are in the annual catalog.  What a nice matching set for the dinner table.  We always eat at my sister in law’s house so maybe I’ll surprise her this year 🙂

Tin of Tags Project Kit by Stampin’ Up!

I hope you had a wonderful three day weekend. I finally got a date with my hubby that was long overdue. We went to go see the new DC comic movie, Suicide Squad and we loved it! We are definitely a Marvel family but we really do like any superhero movies, villians or good guys.

Now onto my very first love, papercrafting (lol!). I love this new Christmas tag kit that was released in the new Holiday Catalog on September 1st. It is so easy to put together and it’s adorable! I also think this tiny tin is just something I can not live without! The Tin of Tags stamp set that you purchase to coordinate with the kit has the perfect font. I would have bought this stamp set whether it went together or not. It has all the most perfect sayings for Christmas tags.

One thing I really like about our kits is that Stampin’ Up! provides YouTube videos of how to put the kits together along with the instructions that comes in the kit. So whether you are a visual learner or can just follow directions on paper, this will be easy as pie! Pumpkin pie? Is it time yet!?

Here is the video from Stampin’ Up! to show you how easy these tags are to put together.
