Banner Blessings Friendship Frame

frame 1This is another project we will be creating tomorrow for my Banner Blessings Class.  You will receive the Banner Blessing Photopolymer Stamp Set, along with 4 other projects.  Please let me know if you want to RSVP at the last minute.  I have 5 openings, or 5 kits still available to sell.  If you purchase the kit, you can pick it up (if you are local) or pay an additional $5.95 to have it shipped to your home.  Please contact me and I will send you a PayPal invoice.

This is one of the easiest projects EVER……all because of our fantastic Stampin’ Up! punches.  I used SEVEN punches on this card!  You should have seen the mess on my desk, ha!  But I only used ONE stamp image and ONE stamp pad…….love how this turned out.  Lots of friends will be getting this for Christmas!  I removed the glass from the frame for this project, but you could attach the large flower on top of the glass, and still have a very nice project that is protected by glass.  Either way, it is a very inexpensive gift that just LOOKS expensive and time-consuming.  It is NOT!  I don’t have time for that in my life……and you probably don’t either!  I will send you ALL pieces including all the punch-outs to create all 5 projects if you purchase the $30 kit.

Wonderful Wreath Decorative Gift Boxes

These Decorative Gift Boxes were made at my club class earlier this week.  I appreciate other bloggers and Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who share their wonderful ideas, and Patty Bennett shared this idea on her blog HERE.  If you don’t follow her blog, I highly recommend you giving it a special spot on your list!

If you thought this wreath was ONLY for Christmas, you are so wrong!  Type this stamp set into Pinterest and catch a glimpse of all the uses for this wreath.  I am hoping that Stampin’ Up! will keep it in our product line in the Spring, as well.  This is truly a set for all seasons!  You will want to purchase the Framelits, as well, so that you can easily cut out these shapes, along with the other images.  I colored the tiny pearls with one of my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilites for a little added dimension.  It’s subtle, but I like it.

These boxes are packaged in sets of 6 for $4.95.  That’s right, less than $1 per box.  You can’t go wrong with these.  I plan on using them during the holidays for small food items such as Cinnamon Candy, cake balls, cookies, fudge, and Peppermint Bark.  I think it will be the perfect size for giving to all my neighbors and co-workers.

Gift Box Punch Board

I’m so excited to see my Stamp Club gals tomorrow night and show them how to use the Gift Box Punch Board!  We will make this small box with a little bow at the top — and they can create either version.  I have additional samples for various sizes that I will have on display, as well.  I really believe this is a tool that you will not be disappointed in — and it has a great price-point of $19.95.  I think you will enjoy the cute little boxes you can create in many different sizes up to 4 inches on each side.

Pleated Party Pouch

Hello friends!  I’m still alive and kickin’!  Sorry that I haven’t posted in awhile.  I’m not sure who I thought I was fooling to think that I could keep up with posting while I was in Orlando……and now this week has been consumed with “catch-up” from being gone from the office 10 days and having 2 Stampin’ Up! classes on the calendar.  Whew!

Tonight is my September Club Class and I’m thrilled to show you one of our projects we are making.  I try to do one 3-D item each month, so this is something I found online at Nancy Ferb’s Blog.  She calls this the Pleated Party Pouch and I love how well it uses the new “mini” Designer Series Paper Stacks that measure 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″.  Of course you can cut any piece of DSP or cardstock to create this, as well.   You can download her pattern on her blog.  It is super easy — score and fold — minimal time involved and super cute for holidays, too!  Here are the 3 versions that I created for my gals to give them some inspiration tonight.  I used some of the new Holiday Catalog stamp sets and had so much fun with this project.

First, here is a Fall/Thanksgiving version using Fall Fest and Holiday Home (words).



P1050858Next up is the Halloween version, also using Fall Fest, but I cut the DSP from the Back to Black paper pack. 



And lastly, I couldn’t resist a Christmas version using the Holiday Home stamp set and Framelits.  I think this is my favorite 🙂




Fall Blessings Sampler

no glare

Would you like to make this beautiful Home Decor item for yourself?  Or for a gift?  Have any friends or  family members with Fall Birthdays?  This would be a fabulous gift, made from the heart, and we all know those are the best kind of gifts!  In addition, kits are available, but you will need to purchase the stamp set “FOR ALL THINGS” in order to stamp the images.  This is the ONLY stamp set used on this project, and it is available for sell on August 28th.  My first class for this project is Tuesday, August 26th.  Depending on the response, I will consider an additional class date for those who can’t make it to this one.  In addition, I will do a class for YOU, at YOUR designated time, if you will gather 4 or more friends for the class.  You can have it at my house, or yours.  Contact me to arrange times for you and your friends.

Fall Blessings Sampler Class

Tuesday, August 26th

6:30 p.m.

$15 Class Fee (frame included)

$10 Class Fee (no frame)

Kits:  $10 for all pre-cut and punched supplies (but you will need to order the Stampin’ Up! stamp set  for $19.95)


For photo purposes ONLY, the glass was removed from this sampler above.  I couldn’t get a good photo without a bad glare.  However, the glass DOES fit, and it doesn’t crush all the details.  I was very happy with how it looked under the glass, as well as without.  The choice is yours.  This frame has an opening of 8 1/2″ square, and the outside dimensions are 10″ square.  However, if you wanted to frame this in a 12×12 frame, you could mat this project with a 12×12 piece of cardstock for a nice look.  It would just have a larger mat around the squares.  Hope that all makes sense.
