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".

Happy Earth Day with Beauty of the Earth Suite

Happy Earth Day!Earth-tree-900x620

 

I thought I'd take the opportunity to share a project featuring a brand new suite launching with our new Annual Catalog on May 4th - Beauty of the Earth - today in celebration of Earth Day.  The Beauty of the Earth Suite includes the colorful Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set and coordinating Beautiful Trees Dies, Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper, Bark 3D Embossing Folders, and colorful Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper. 

Beauty of the Earth Suite by Stampin' Up!

For today's post I made 8 slimline cards quickly and easily and with just 1 sheet of Designer Series Paper. You can too! Simply follow my cutting dimensions and assembly instructions below. Easy peasy, I guarantee it!

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card bases = Cut 8 measuring 7" x 8 1/2", score at 3 1/2" on short side, fold in half. (I cut 4 Night of Navy & 4 Merry Merlot.)
  • Basic White layer = Cut 16 measuring 3 1/4" x 8 1/4". (You'll use 2 per card - 1 on front & 1 inside.)
  • Card stock layer on front = Cut 8 measuring 3 1/8" x 8 1/8". (I cut 4 Night of Navy & 4 Merry Merlot from left over card stock that I had when I cut the card bases from my 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of card stock.)
  • Designer Series Paper = Use the Beauty of the Earth DSP with watercolor tree prints at the top and bottom of the paper with white space in the middle. Cut it at 6" (in half) through the white space. Then cut each of the two 6" x 12" pieces into 4 pieces measuring 3" x 6". 
  • Wood Grain DSP (also from Beauty of the Earth DSP) = Cut 4 pieces measuring 2" x 3".


Beauty of the Earth Suite by Stampin' Up!

  6. Adhere Basic White card stock to inside of card.
  7. Die cut 2 Night of Navy birds and adhere to card front as shown using Glue Dot.

Make 9 Gift Card Holders Fast

'Tis the season of giving. If you're like me and many people I know, you probably have a list of people you'll be giving gift cards to. Gift cards are great for so many people - teachers, postal carriers, delivery drivers, hairdressers, babysitters, pastors, colleagues, and so many more people. If giving gift cards is in your holiday plans, this post is for you.

You can make 9 Gift Card Holders quickly and easily with a limited number of supplies, 1 sheet of 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper, and my video demonstration from my November 23rd Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live. I made mine with a sheet of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper; card stock in Poppy Parade, Misty Moonlight, and Old Olive; and sentiments from Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. Take a look at the video, then get started creating your own set of Gift Card Holders for the upcoming holidays or for birthdays or any occasion you plan to give a gift card for. These make up so quickly, why not have a stash on hand for various occasions?

Autumn is just around the corner. As I look forward to the changing colors of the fall leaves here in Ohio, I am reminded that with change comes beauty, and like the leaves on our trees, sometimes it is ok to let go. 

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

 

 


Flowers for Every Season One Sheet Wonder

I can't get enough of these 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonders. They make card making quick, easy, and fun. One Sheet Wonders are also a great way to build up a stash of cards to have ready as you need them. The one I feature in the following Facebook Live video replay makes 4 cards. I made all of mine vertical cards, but you could easily change things up a bit to make them horizontal cards if you prefer. This One Sheet Wonder is also quite versatile. I think it could work with most, if not all, Designer Series Papers and stamp sets. I hope you'll give this 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder a try!

 

I started out my FB Live demonstration by showing these 4 cards I made using only a 6" x 6" piece of Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.

Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper One Sheet Wonder

 

The next two photos, show you how I cut my 6" x 6" DSP.

I first cut at 1 1/2", then cut the remaining piece at 3" leaving 2 pieces measuring 1 1/2" x 6" & middle piece measuring 3" x 6".
Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper One Sheet Wonder

 

Next, I cut 1/2" off the bottom of the first piece. That tiny bit of DSP is the only part I did not use.

I cut the center piece so that I had two 3" x 3" squares. I then cut the second square into three strips measuring 1" x 3".

The last piece I cut into four 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" squares.
Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper One Sheet Wonder

 

The following photos show the 4 different cards I made using the 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder above. I did switch out the Bumblebee card stock in the samples with Just Jade card stock and added some embellishments, but the card layouts are exactly the same.
