It's Apple Harvest time!

Who's ready for fall and apple harvest season??? I recently spent a day in Cincinnati with my daughter Emily. She was talking about how much she was looking forward to fall and wanted to look for a few fall decorations for her apartment. She also said she wants to go to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch on one of her next visits here in Columbus. I love doing that! Our whole family loves these fun fall activities. That conversation is what inspired me to get out my Apple Harvest Stamp Set as I had not used it yet. AND, this stamp set is part of the Stampin' Up! Perfect Pairings Promotion September 1-30. Stampin' Up! has created 6 die sets that coordinate with 6 of our current stamp sets. These new Perfect Pairings are only available in September while supplies last. Click on the link below to view all 6 Perfect Pairings and get your shopping list ready. Note that you can purchase just the die set if you already have the stamp set it pairs with or purchase both using the bundle price.

He's the Man Gift Box with Hinged Lid

I love to create fun gift bags and boxes. Today, I'm exited to share one of those with you. I received this Gift Box with Hinged Lid from my friend and SU! team member at a recent girls' craft weekend. I immediately thought of ways I could make and use more of these. The possibilities are endless!

Stampin' Up! - Mary Knabe (6)

Enjoy this this Replay of my August 15th Facebook Live then make note of or print the template so you can make these fabulous gift boxes on your own. What a great way to package little gifts or gift cards!

 

Templates for Gift Box with Hinged Lid

  • You'll want to make the bottom of the box first, then the top. Be sure to watch video to see how the box is put together once you've cut and scored your card stock and designer series paper.

Below are a few of the gift boxes I made with the He's The Man Designer Series Paper.

Remember that mistake I made in the Live demonstration? Yep, I had my template upside down when I glanced over at it. Ever do something like that? Well, it happens. BUT, look what I did here? I used the opposite side of the DSP and was able to make it work for another gift box.

With a new school year starting for many, the thought of using this gift box with hinged lid for teacher appreciation gifts. Chocolates, gift cards, paper clips & office supplies are just a few of the many items you can put in these for your favorite teachers, classroom aides, and school staff. The Apple Harvest Stamp Set and Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper were used to make the gift box below.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you found some creative inspiration and helpful tips in today's post. I look forward to sharing more with you here on Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe.

Techniques with Amazing Thanks & Other Word Dies

We all love word dies for making fabulous cards, scrapbook pages, collages, and more. In this video demonstration, I'll introduce you to a fun technique using the Amazing Thanks Dies and all our word dies. Watch, then put your word dies to use in a new way!

Stampin' Up! Amazing Thanks Dies - Mary Knabe (2)

Cutting Dimensions for Fresh Freesia Thanks Card:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" on long side
  • Card stock layer on front = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

 

Below you'll see additional ways to use the Amazing Thanks Dies. I love having several ways we can use our Stampin' Up! products.

 

For this card I used both the Amazing Silhouette Stamp Set and Amazing Thanks Dies. Stamping in Shaded Spruce ink directly onto the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper really adds a lot of interest to this card. Card stock colors used were Shaded Spruce and Basic Gray.

Cutting Dimensions for Tree Thanks Card above:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" on long side
  • Card stock layer on front = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • DSP = 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

Cutting Dimensions for You Are Amazing Card above:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score and fold at 4 1/4" on long side
  • DSP 1 = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • DSP 2 = 5 1/4" x 2"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"

 

Making one card is fun but making two is even better. You can die cut once and make 2 cards by using both the negative and positive pieces from your die cutting. As shown in the pair of cards below, I die cut the word Thanks from Pattern Party DSP. I used that large piece of DSP with the words cut out for one card front and and adhered the die cut word itself to the front of a second card. Card stock used to make this card is Granny Apple Green and Basic White.

  • Basic White layer on front = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • DSP or Basic White layer = 4" x 3 1/2"
  • DSP strip on 2nd card = 4" x 3/8"
  • Basic White inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Die cut 'thanks' from DSP. Use the DSP with word hole on 1st card. Use die cut 'thanks' on 2nd card.

Marbleous! Simply Marbleous!

I am thrilled to show you my Simply Marbleous 6" x 6" DSP One Sheet Wonder x 6. In this Video Replay of my January 10th Facebook Live, you'll see me use 6 sheets of the Simply Marbleous DSP, one sheet of each color, all cut the same way. I call it my "One Sheet Wonder x 6". It makes 2 sets of 6 cards each plus a Slimline Card and Gift Tag using all 6 colors. It's easy. It's fun. And the cards are so pretty and work for just about any occasion. Use this method when you need to make several cards at once or when you want to build up your stash of cards to have on hand and use as needed.

So enjoy this video, then give my "One Sheet Wonder x 6" a try. FYI...you can get this Simply Marbleous 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order. Why not purchase some new punches, build your inventory of ink pads, or stock up on card stock? Or purchase a couple of stamp sets or a bundle you've got on your wish list. Whatever you choose for your $50 order, the Simply Marbleous DSP is a fun choice of a Sale-A-Bration freebie!

Stampin' Up! Simply Marbleous DSP  - Mary Knabe

Flowing Flowers Cards

Happy New Year, Stampin' Peace Friends! 

With the holidays behind us, it's time to start thinking about writing our Thank You Notes. I'm sharing what I'm using as my birthday and Christmas thank you notes. They feature the brand new Flowing Flowers Stamp Set and Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes. I love using our Notecards & Envelopes of quick and easy thank you cards or when I need to make several of other kinds of cards. They're very affordable at just $7 for 20 pre-cut and scored note cards and envelopes in either Basic White or Very Vanilla. The folded size is 3 1/2" x 5", and yes, they are mailable.

This Video Replay of my December 27th Facebook Live includes a demonstration of the Simple Stamping I used to make all these cards. Remember, Simple Stamping means we use stamps, ink, and paper only. It's fun and easy but still allows you to make pretty cards. So watch now then do some Simple Stamping cards of your own.

I chose to use Merry Merlot ink on these cards, but so many of our colors look amazing on the Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes. FYI...you'll want to use some Grid Paper or other scrap paper as you will be stamping off the edge of the note cards.

Get Your FRI- YAY GIFT

Happy Friday! It's Halloween Weekend! Trick or Treat in my neighborhood was last night. For the third year in a row, it was rainy but not nearly as cold as the last two years. We don't get many trick-or-treaters here, but it's still fun to see who comes out, watch the little ones having fun, and chat with the parents. Neighbors on both sides of me sat out together along with my Emily who is going back to Cincinnati today. She's been here the last few minutes doing a Physical Therapy Clinical with OSU. I'll miss her, but she's doing great things, enjoying her chosen profession, and looking forward to graduating with her DPT in April. As next door neighbors, we said sitting on one of our porches for trick or treat is now a tradition. I love it. How fortunate I am to be blessed with such nice neighbors on each side of me.

PS...My favorite part of the night was seeing a little green gecko who walked up each driveway saying, "I gecko". And I love seeing kids who were here last year and have grown taller!

I'll be doing some Stampin' Up! work this weekend, having an early lunch with friends Rosie and Mark Saturday as they will be in Columbus, and then, of course, watching the OSU vs Penn State Saturday evening. Andrea and Jon will be joining me. It's sure to get a little loud here as we cheer on our Buckeyes.

No matter what you have planned for your weekend, I hope you're weekend is filled with fun, laughter, family, and friends and a bit of rest and relaxation too. And if you're up for a little crafting, here's a FREE PROJECT SHEET to inspire you!

Halloween Sliders just in time for Trick-or-Treat

Monday was such a fun day. During my Facebook Live I demonstrated making my Halloween Sliders with 2 different kinds of treats. Then I spent some time making several more of each Late in the day, my daughter Emily and I took the Halloween Sliders to my nieces and their roommates at The Ohio State University. Avery is a freshman studying business and living in the same dorm where her parents met. Her sister Alison is a senior in nursing and living off campus. It was fun to see these girls, hug them, and see where they're living and enjoying their college days. How fun it was for Emily and I, both OSU alumni, to spend a little time on campus. And just to note...big kids like Halloween treats too.

So if you're for still looking for something to make and give for trick-or-treat, take a look at the video below for a demonstration of making these "sliders" with candy bars and single serving cookies. These sliders can easily be adapted for any holiday or occasion. The sliders are so simple to make & use minimal supplies allowing you to whip up a batch in no time! Just by changing up the size of your paper, you can make sliders for microwave popcorn packets and so many other candy bars and treats. What's your favorite and what holiday or occasion would you make these treat sliders for?

 

Hershey Bar Sliders, so fun to make and give!

Hmmm...I didn't even think to take a picture of us 4 OSU Buckeyes together. I guess because I live in the moment. But, I'll always have this fun memory.

 

Thanks for visiting Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe. I hope you'll make some fun "sliders" for Halloween or perhaps another holiday or event. I'd love to know what treat you'll use to make these fun favors!

 

Happy Halloween and Happy Stamping!
