Retiring IN-Colors and Easter Treats

Posted on

Another annual catalog is almost here so what exactly does that mean for us? Every year Stampin’ Up! comes out with another 5 brand new In-Colors so unfortunately these 5 will be expiring. Did you have a favorite from the 2016-2018 In-Colors? Mine changed throughout the last two years but I’m ending with Peekaboo Peach. It goes with everything!

The reason I’m already talking about the new catalog is because when the new comes in, the old goes out and that means getting them while supplies last! That means cardstock, ink pads, ink refills, and ribbons or embellishments are all gonna be going, going, gone very soon and I don’t want any of you missing out!

I made these adorable favors that I CASEd from Pootles. Here is a link to her video.

The measurements are:
Cardstock or Designer Series Paper: 11″ x 3 1/2″

Score on the LONG side at 1/2″, 1 1/4″, 9 3/4″, 10 1/2″

Score on the SHORT side at 3/4″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/4″, 3″

These are super easy to make multiples of and they are perfect for filling up with chocolate Easter eggs and putting into Easter baskets.

I used the Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Heartfelt Blooms to stamp all over the cardstock and also for the sentiment. The Sale-a-Bration freebies end on March 31st.  Stock up on your favorite in-colors and then get a FREE Sale-A-Bration item.  Stampin’ Up! has added even more items for FREE below.

Global Stamping Friends – Festive Celebrations

Posted on

Happy December!  December! Already!  Where has the year gone?

Welcome to this month’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop featuring Festive Celebrations!  These ladies never cease to amaze me with their creativity and the projects they come up with every month.

For my project, I’ve come up with a card and tag idea with a coordinating box.  I made it less feminine because it will be for my husband’s friend.  Coming up with manly ideas is very hard for me.  Do you struggle with that?

I coordinated them all using the Colorful Seasons Designer Series Pack.  The Christmas tree came from our timeless Lovely as a Tree stamp set.  It’s been around forever!

The Happy Christmas banner stamp is from a newer stamp set called Labels to Love.  You can find a list of everything I used down below.

These boxes are really easy to make.  They are very convenient for gift packaging year round, making them any size you need.

To make this box I used:
Thick Whisper White cardstock – 8×8 scored at 2 inches on all 4 sides.
Designer Series Paper – 6×6 scored at 1 inch on all sides.
Fold all the score lines. You will have 4 square corners on both pieces.  Cut one side to the line and adhere it together.  I like to use tear & tape so my box won’t dare to fall apart even with heavier items inside.

I CASE’d this card from a card in our Annual Catalog on Page 141 for the CASEing the Catty Sunday Challenge #156.  I love challenging myself to come up with something new while also making it easier by using something already done! Does that make sense!  LOL.

I hope you got some inspiration from my card and gift packaging idea today.  Thank you for hopping along.  Click on the NEXT arrow to check out the talented creations by Marieke Bart.  There is a Roll call of everyone hopping today below for your convenience.

Your BFF,

Jenn

Pizza Box project

Posted on

On Saturday we had a Stamp Camp and it was so much fun! I love when all of our friends can get together and create. We had a couple first timers this time and it’s exciting to see their reactions to what they can make. We made a cute little pizza box that holds 4 notecards and envelopes.

So I promised on Periscope to share the dimensions of the box. It’s a 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ box. Perfect to fit 3×3 notecards inside to give away or keep for yourself.

The crumb cake piece starts as a 5 1/2 x 10″ piece.

I’ve scored it longwise at 1″ and 4 1/2″.

Then I flipped it and scored it at 1″, 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″ and 9″.

Then cut the lines as in the diagram.

I punched a half circle out for a finger spot to open the box easier.

I used tear and tape to hold the box together. I put the tape on so the tabs would be on the inside of the box and not showing. Also, you want to make sure your lid has the half circle cut out.

Here’s everything from Stamp Camp. Feel free to CASE!
