Spring Treat Bag

In today's video demonstration, I show you how to make a cute party favor or treat bag perfect for your spring occasions - St. Patrick's Day, Easter, birthdays, bridal shower & weddings, and so much more. Or how about decorating one of these treat bags for a teacher or graduate and enclosing a gift card? No matter the occasion, people are going to love receiving one of these sweet treat bags. What occasion will you create these party favors for? What Stampin' Up! products will you use in making them? Let your creativity shine, then share what you create.

 

I've chosen 2 beautiful papers from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper for these two spring party favors. The stamped image is part of the Oval Occasions Bundle and is absolutely perfect for celebrating Easter and Spring.

This favor is actually a bag with a tent-like band that slides over the closed bag. The bag can hold chocolates and other sweets, a gift card, and even a piece of jewelry. I'm sure you can think of many other items to put inside these favors.

I used Stampin' Write Markers in Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Bumblebee, and Terracotta Tile to color the stamped image below.

Here is a St. Patrick's Day party favor also made with Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. The gold metallic accents make this paper truly elegant and rich. The Gold Foil Shamrock was created using the Heart Punch Pack.

Teacher Appreciation Day is May 4th

As a former teacher and mom who made sure our family showed our appreciation for our children's teachers, school employees, and bus drivers,  I can say a little token of appreciation goes a long way in helping people enjoy their jobs and stay motivated to do and be the best they can be. Tuesday, May 4th is Teacher Appreciation Day. I kept that day in mind when planning my April 28th Facebook Live projects. I created 2 sets of cards and a fun 3D gift tag that you can make quickly and easily and with limited supplies. All projects feature one of my favorite punches, the Apple Builder Punch. If you don't have it yet, I think you're going to want it after seeing this video demonstration. AND you'll want to order it quickly as this item is retiring on May 3rd and is only available while supplies last. AND if you can believe it, it is on sale for just $7.20 (originally $18.00). It doesn't get better than that. 

The projects you're about to see in this video are not only great for Teacher Appreciation Day, but for other reasons as well. How about as a Back to School gift, a hostess gift, fall harvest notes, a co-worker gift, or simply to surprise someone with a little pick me up or gift of cheer? How about using these apple cards to send notes and gifts to the "apples of your eyes" - grandchildren or students on summer break?

I used Real Red DSP from the 2020-2021 Regals Paper Pack for these card sets.

In the following sets of cards, I used the NEW 2021-2022 Regals Paper Pack Collection. I LOVE the tone-on-tone patterns of the new 6" x 6" DSP's in Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles, and 2021-2023 In Colors. These will be available for all to order on Tuesday, May 4th with the launch of our brand new Annual Catalog.Apple Builder Punch by Stampin' Up!

Who knew that a simple $3.50 product could give so much dimension to an otherwise flat shape? That's exactly what our White Stampin' Chalk Marker does for these apples. It's my best $3.50 investment ever! It also works great for coloring the center of small flowers and so much more. Trust me when I say, "Everyone needs one".

Video Demonstration - Popcorn Purse

As requested by so many who saw my original posts on my very fancy and very chic Oscar Night clutch, I did a video demonstration for my April 26th Facebook Live on how to make these fun party favors. They are great for Girls' Nights, bridal showers and bachelorette parties, little girls' birthday parties and tea parties, and so much more. You can also give them as "movie night" gifts. Perhaps, include and movie DVD or theatre gift card with this fun favor. One viewer even suggested using it as a "welcome to the neighborhood gift" with a movie and enough popcorn favors for the whole family. You could swap out popcorn for a chocolate bar and other treats or a notebook or journal. How about using it as a Mother's Day gift? Change up the paper for any occasion and the size to accommodate other treats or gifts. You can even make something more masculine - think wallet for Father's Day or a brother or an uncle or grandpa's birthday. So many possibilities!

 

Here's some individual photos for a closer look at my popcorn purses!

I also took 6 tags (1 of each design) and removed the white layer, then made Christmas Cards with them - card base in a coordinating colors plus Gold Foil Paper accents is all it took. I also tied the gold cord into bows for a finishing touch.

Tag Buffet Project Kit by Stampin' Up!
I used the white layers I removed from the tags on the cards above with the 5 extra pine tree die cuts you get in your kits to make 5 more gift tags. I had plenty of extra labels to stamp and gold cord in my kit so didn't need to add any other supplies to make these additional tags.

Alternate Projects for my favorite 2020 Holiday Kits

There's so much to love about our 2020 Stampin' Up! holiday kits. They're fun and festive with their holiday images in fabulous holiday colors. They include loads of die cuts and embellishments. They contain color photos and easy to follow directions for beginning paper crafters or for those who are pressed for time. AND, our kits are so versatile that they are also great for experienced paper crafters who are eager to think outside the box and do some designing and creating on their own using the kit contents. 

The two holiday kits featured in this video replay of my December 9th Facebook Live are the Tag Buffet Project Kit and the Joy of Sharing All Inclusive Kit. You'll see some examples of some alternate projects including gift tags, cards, and scrapbook pages I created with the Tag Buffet Kit. You'll then see me create 2 cards and a collage with the help of my Facebook Live viewers using the gorgeous Joy of Sharing Kit. I hope you'll enjoy watching this video and be inspired to create beautiful paper crafts for the holidays using our fabulous kits from the 2020 Holiday Catalog.

Both of the kits featured in my video replay are available at great saving as they are on the Year-end Closeout. The Tag Buffet Project Kit is just $15 at 50% off the original price of $30. The coordinating Tag Buffet Stamp Set is available for $18 or subsitute with one or your own for the sentiments on your handmade tags. The Joy of Sharing All Inclusive Kit is just $24.50 at 30% off the original price of $35. So why not consider giving yourself a little help this holiday season by purchasing a kit or two for yourself or giving a few for gifts. OR how about purchasing some kits at great prices now and holding on to them for your 2021 holiday paper crafting and gift giving. Either way, don't delay, though, as these kits and all items on our Year-end Closeout are available while supplies last only. Get them while you can.

I created 2 alternate cards with the help of my Facebook Live viewers using supplies from the Joy of Sharing Kit only.

As we continue to prepare for the upcoming holidays, please remember to treat yourself with grace and kindness. Sometimes we try to "do it all" and end up frazzled and exhausted. I wish you calm and acceptance. Calm from taking time to relax and destress and acceptance to realize it can be a wonderful holiday season for ourselves and our loved ones even without "doing it all". So be good to yourself. Your loved ones will appreciate you gifting yourself self-love and self-care.

Love and blessing!

Holiday Wine Bottle Tags

I've been making a few Wine Bottle Tags for holiday gift giving. Below are ones for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I used the Gilded Autumn Suite and a sheet from World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper for my Thanksgiving Wine Bottle Tag. The Christmas one was made with products in my October Paper Pumpkin Kit, Joy to the World. I always love to make a few alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin Kits. 

IMG_0150 (1)Each Wine Bottle Tag starts with  4" x 12" piece of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper or card stock. I score 3 1/2" from the top and fold gently. I punch a 1 1/2" circle to hang the tag. To create the "ring" that goes around the hole, punch a 1 1/2" circle in center of 2 1/4" square of coordinating paper. Then punch with 2" Circle Punch centering the hole in the 2" circle opening to and punch to get the ring.

Merry Christmas Tin

Have you seen the darling tins in our 2020 Stampin' Up Holiday Mini Catalog? They come in two shapes - rectangle and round - and both are fabulous! They're fun. They're versatile. They can be filled with candies, a decorated cookie, a gift card, cash, coins, personal notes, meaningful quotes, jewelry, and more. Or how about gifting your crafting friends a bolt of Stampin' Up! ribbon, a bunch of gift tags, or an assortment of embellishments. 

Today's post shows one way to decorate a Round Tin quickly and easily with the Wreath Builder Dies and foil paper in red, green, and gold. Whether I use this as a stocking stuffer, gift card holder, or table favor, I have no doubt the recipient will LOVE it. The question is, though, will that person want to share it and pass it on or keep it for oneself to use as a holiday decoration for years to come.

Arrange A Wreath Bundle by Stampin' Up!

Nothings says Christmas more than red, green, and gold and a holiday wreath. This Round Tin was fun and VERY easy to decorate. I can think of so many ways to use it which makes my heart happy.
Arrange A Wreath Bundle by Stampin' Up!

I stamped "Merry Christmas" in Real Red ink on Whisper White card stock, punched it out with a 2" Circle Punch, then layered it onto a 2 1/4" circle punched from Green Foil Paper.Arrange A Wreath Bundle by Stampin' Up!

These Round Tins are bigger than you'd think - 3 3/4" in diameter x 1 1/4" high. The window is 3".  These Round Tins are food safe and come in a box of 4 for just $12. What goodies or gifts would you fill these with?

Christmas Tins for Treats, Cash, & More

A couple weeks ago, I posted some Rectangle Tins I decorated for my Thanksgiving Table using Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper and Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set. If you missed it, be sure to check it out with this link: https://bit.ly/3kZgOoY.

Today, I hope you'll enjoy these tins I decorated using coordinating sheets of "Tis the Season Designer Series Paper. Each one is decorated uniquely, one looking more feminine and the other more masculine. These would be great stocking stuffers!
