Christmas Gift Giving Idea – Chapstick Holder

Stampin Up Chapstick Holder Polar Party Gift Ideas

Hello Folks. .   Today I have a great Christmas Gift Idea.  I would like to share this cute Chapstick Holder.  I used our Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut at 5 1/2 by 4 and scored at 2 1/2.  I turned it around and scored again at 2 1/2.  My designer paper is Be of Good Cheer (126896) and my stamp set is Polar Party (w122675/c122677).  You will just love ths set, so cute.  My tag is from Beautiful Season (w122680/c122682).  The little gift tag was just perfect for this.  I used markers to color my image.  I used Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding to keep it closed.  I also used three (3) mini glue dots to attach my chap stick.  These are just too cute and great stocking stuffers and Secret Santa Gfts.

A Very Special Bonnet

Stampin Up Everyday Enchantment Bonnet Sale a Bration Occasion Mini

Hello Folks. . .  Welcome to another Monday.  I just love making craft projects and 3D items.  Today I have an adorable bonnet to share with you.  When I think of bonnets I think of Easter but this little gift could be for any occasion. 

First thing I did was cover a 4 x 4 thin coaster with designer paper from our Everyday Enchanment Designer Pack. FREE when you place a $50 order.   I put a very thin coat of Tom Boy #110755 glue on my coaster.  Applied my paper and let it dry for just a tad, then I ran it thru the Big Shot using our Scallop Circle Die #113468.  The top of my bonnet is an empty Stack and Store Container #103649 that buttons come in.  If you don't have an empty one you can find them on pg 226 of your catty.  I put sticky tape around it and attached my 5/8" Very Vanilla Ribbon #117291.  Our 2.5 Circle Punch #120906 fits the top of the container perfectly.  

Bonnet Box Stampin Up Sale a Bration Occasions Mini Easter Bonnet

My flower is made from our 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch #119854.  I punched eight of them.  Spray them lightly with a mister and crunch them up in your hand.  Now uncrunch them but be gentle.  I then stacked them on top of each other and inserted a brad in the center and began to bring each layer up towards the center.  Viola' you have a scalloped vintage looking flower.  I once again used some Tom Boy glue to attach it to my base.  Added some of the pretty green organdy ribbon from the SAB mini.  Fill the inside with your favorite candy.  I used some Skittles that I had on hand. 

This reminds me so of an Easter Bonnet but would make a wonderful gift for a special friend on their birthday.  This idea comes from one of the display boards that was shown at Stampin' Ups Leadership Conference.  Oh, so cute.

Something Yummy For The Tummy

Stampin Up Sale a Bration EEveryday Enchantment Designer Paper

Hello Folks. . .  Happy Hump Day.  I have something very sweet and yummy to share with you today.  While browsing our very own Stampin' Up Connection (site for Demonstrators Only, just one of the many perks as a SU Demonstrator) I found this lovely 6 nugget box.  What a great gift for family and friends on Valentine's Day. 

The template for this box can be found over at Splitcoaststampers.  There are many variations to choose from.  I chose the six nugget box .  I used a piece our new FREE  designer paper called Everyday Enchantment from the SAB mini.  It will be available on Jan 24thPlace a $50 order on line or thru me and this pretty vintage paper is yours FREE.  I then cut a strip of dp 3 1/8 x 1.25, attached some score tape and wrapped it around my Hershey Nugget.  My cello bag is a non SU bag.  You can find them at any store that sells Wilton Products.  Next I stamped my tag with the stamp set Occasions Alphabet (117090/123598).  You can find this on pg 171 of your catty.  I added some White Bakers Twine (124262) and attached it to my Poppy Parade Ribbon with a safety pin.  Easy Peasy.   

Kayleigh, my youngest granddaughter still enjoys giving little presents away to people she hangs out with, especially her teachers, so I will be making several of these for her.  She is a lot like her Nana, she enjoys the gift of giving.  I hope that never changes.

Oh, these little nugget boxes will be for sale for you guys that don't have the time to make them.  They will be $6. plus shipping.  I think I can fit them in a padded envelope so shipping would probably be @ $2.  Let me know if you would like one.  Paper may vary.  You can drop me a note here.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I truly enjoy your company and love sharing my ideas with you.  If you are ever interested in joining my workshop group let me know, we are always looking for new faces.

Enchanting Bird House


Stampin Up Sale A Bration Enchantment Designer Paper  Clearance Rack Blitz Holiday Mini Occasions Mini

Happy New Years Eve Everyone. . .  Tonight is a big big party night, so be safe out there and ask for a ride if need be. 

Today I have a simple project to share with you.  This cute birdhouse ornament was found at Papertrey Ink blog site by Nichole.  You can find it here.  To find the birdhouse you will need to search for the birdhouse templete.  It's not hard to find just be patient.

For supplies, I printed my template out on Crumb Cake and cut it out with Paper Snips.  Next I made a template out of copy paper for the birdhouse front, then cut a piece of the new designer paper Everyday Enchantment.  You can get this dp for FREE in the Sale A Bration Mini when you place a $50 order come Jan 24th.  Sale a Bration is Stampin' Ups most anticipated promotion of the year and is coming to your house very soon (Jan 24th). 

Next I measured my birdhouse roof and cut a piece of Crumb Cake 1.5 x 3 1/8th.   That fit exactly, so next time I will make my piece a little longer, say 3 1/4 or 3 3/8.  I scored it in half and pierced a hole to insert some Linen Thread for my holder. 

Next I cut a hole in the middle for my opening with a small nestie, I found trying to use a punch was a little more work than necessary in trying to center it.  I went the easy peasy way.  LOL  Added some fern in Pear Pizzazz.  My stamp set is Best of Everything (123534/123536).  If you don't have that one I found a cute bird from Season of Friendship.  Both can be found on pg 102 and 103.  My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370) punched with the Word Window Punch.

Thanks for stopping by on this big party day.  May the new year bring you nothing short of happiness.  To order any Stampin' Up supplies please shop in my On Line Store 24/7Thanks for all of your support during this trying year and I look forward to inspiring you again next year.  Pass the word around for our love of papercrafting and just maybe we can see some new sales and faces in the upcoming new year.  Toodles

Spice Cake Fall Wreath

 SUO Simply Scored Spice Cake Fall Wreath Stampin Up Holiday Mini

Hello Everyone.  OMG I finished it.  Isn't is just beautiful?   I've had it done for a few days but couldn't decide on my leaves.  I don't have Gently Falling and that's the one that everyone is using, but I did have French Foilage, so I decided to go ahead and use it.  What do you think?  I'm so very happy with it.  These little flowers are called Accordian Flowers and they are scored with our new Simple Scored Tool found in the Holiday Mini.  It looks very grand but it's easy peasy.  Here is a video that I found on line.  Click here and she will show you how easy this is done.  For the wreath base I cut a piece of the heavy cardstock from our designer paper packs.  The circle is 7.5 " round.  (I hunted around my kitchen until I found something I could use.)  Scientific isn't it.  LOL    Then I centered a 5.5"  saucer in the middle and drew around it and then cut out the center and viola' you have a wreath base to place you pretty accordian flowers one.  I did cut two and glued them together for extra support.  Arrange them as you like using the different colors of paper.  My bow is a piece of Choc Chip  1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.  I used a hot glue gun to assembly my flowers.  TIP:  Hot glue is sensitive to changes in weather.  If it gets too hot or too cold the glue gets brittle and pops off, so be aware of where you display and store your wreath.

Adorable Cup Cake Holder Using The Petal Cone Die Cut

SUO Cupcake Holder Stampin Up Petal Cone Idea Stampin Up Holiday Mini

Hello My Stamping Friends.  Welcome to the start of a brand new week.

Today I am featuring one of our new Big Shot Dies.  It's called the Petal Cone Die and boy it can do a lot of different things.  If I remember correctly this die was introduced at last year's convention.  Since then many people have gotten a hold of it and have come up with many ways in which to use this die cut, but today I'm showing how you can make a cute cup cake holder or gift box.  Like I said this was the rage at last years convention.  My colors are Pretty In Pink and Chocolate Chip.  For this particular look I had to cut 3 different cones.  Of course one for the outside (PNP) and one for the inside (CC) and another if you want to use designer paper to decorate the outside of your cupcake box.  Some of my other cool tools are the Big Shot, Embossing Folder Elegant Lines #119277, 2 2/3 Scallop Circle Punch #118874, Small Oval Punch #120908 for the Cherry, Small Circle Punches to support my Red Bow   My sentiment comes from the Hostess Set Happiest Birthday Wishes #122617.  There's lots of pretties on this one, I'll just name a few 1 1/4" Striped CC Ribbon, Victoria Crochet Trim, Random Real Red Button, and Real Red 5/8" Ribbon.

This idea comes from Diana Gibbs over at Stamping With Di but she is not the originator.  You can get all the directions to make this cute cup cake holder from Robin Merriman at her blog here.
