N is for Night Before Christmas

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Today I am showcasing the Night Before Christmas Suite. Check out what Santa is up to in this fun video…

The Night Before Christmas Suite is showcased on pages 24-26 in the Holiday Catalog. You can use the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & Envelopes with the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and have instant Christmas Cards! Talk about quick & easy!  Today I’m sharing how I used the Night Before Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper to make some fun little Christmas treats.

Stampin' Up! Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper sweet treat gift ideas - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Take a look at all the different fun patterns in this short video!

This candy cane treat is quick & easy! The DSP makes a nice presentation for a sweet little holiday treat. (You could even put it on a gift as a tag!)

Stampin' Up! Tiny Keepsakes Bundle sweet candy cane treat idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The DSP measures 2 x 6 and is adhered to a Real Red 2 x 7 layer. I use a hole punch to punch two tiny holes on either side of the candy cane to thread the ribbon through and tie a bow. I added a couple of glue dots to secure the candy cane in place. The tag is from the Tiny Keepsakes Bundle. I stamped the sentiment in Pretty Peacock and cut it out with the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies. I used White Bakers Twine to thread a jingle bell and tag and tied it around the candy cane. Quick & easy!

For my next project I made a fold over box.

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright fold over box gift idea for friends - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The sentiment I used is from the stamp set, Making Christmas Bright (in the annual catalog). I got the dimensions for the box from Sam Donald (Pootles.com). The light bulbs pattern from the Night Before Christmas DSP was perfect to go with what I put inside the box.

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright fold over box gift idea for friends - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I host a cookie exchange with my friends every year and these will be perfect for their table favors. I got the bulbs from Hobby Lobby and filled them with mini M&M’s for a little treat or ornament to hang on their tree as a reminder of our special friendship!

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright fold over box gift idea for friends - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the measurements to make the box:

  • Very Vanilla or Crumb Cake cardstock: 7 x 6 1/4, score ont he long side at 1 1/2, 3, 4 1/2, 6. Score on the short side at 1 1/2 and 4 3/4.
  • DSP Panels: (2) 3 x 1 1/4, (2) 3/4 x 1 1/4, (1) 3/4 x 3
  • Very Vanilla: 1 x 2 3/4 to stamp sentiment in Delicata Golden Glitz
  • Scraps of Real Red, Old Olive, and Early Espresso to punch bulbs with Christmas Bulb Builder Punch

Fold and burnish the score lines. Cut, notch, and trim as shown below.

Stampin' Up! fold over box template - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Add adhesive to the notched pieces on each end and in the middle on both sides and assemble the box. (You can view the video from Pootles.com to see how to put the box together HERE. *She put tealights in the box.)

I can’t decide which color box I like better, Very Vanilla or Crumb Cake? I need to make 10 more. Leave me a comment and let me know which color you think I should make for the rest of them.

So what do you do the Night Before Christmas? Every year our family gets together at my sister’s (~24 people ) for dinner on Christmas Eve.  (I love making the table favors for everyone!) After dinner we play “Yankee Swap”. Everyone brings a wrapped gift (~$25) and we draw numbers to see who goes first and so on. The first person opens a gift and then the next person can choose to take their gift or open a different one and it continues on so you never know what gift you will end up with til the very end.  It is always so much fun and every year there seems to be a “hot gift” that everyone wants. As our family has grown it is a fun way to have a little gift exchange without breaking the bank!  The best gift of all is just being together as a family and remembering the reason for the season!

Have a wonderful day!

K is for Kits

Welcome to my ABC Holiday 2019 Series! Throughout this series I will be sharing all kinds of cards, gifts, and ideas to help make your holidays as easy as ABC! Kits are great to give as gifts or buy for yourself to make your holidays stress free and easier than ever! Here’s a look at the new Christmas Countdown Project Kit.

This kit is amazing! It includes enough supplies to create 25 mini boxes, plus a sturdy outer box to hold them all. When my kids were little I always had a different handmade advent calendar with activities for each day. I love how these sturdy hand-crafted boxes can be used year after year for a great holiday tradition! You could fill the boxes with small treats or do what I did and put a note in each box with a special activity to do each day.  (We would be doing most of these things anyway but this made it something special to look forward to each day.) My kids were always so excited to get up and see what fun thing we were going to do that day. Here’s a few ideas to get you started.

  • read a Christmas story (I always had a new book for them to unwrap.)
  • pick out (or make) a new ornament for the tree
  • write a letter to Santa
  • visit Santa at the mall
  • go to the tree farm to pick out the tree
  • decorate the tree
  • choose an “angel” from the angel tree at church
  • shop for child/family in need
  • bake cookies
  • make Christmas tags
  • play Christmas music and wrap presents
  • watch a Christmas movie together (either a new one or family favorite)
  • go for a drive to look at the holiday lights
  • do a random act of kindness

Here’s a little secret from me to you….I would fill the box with blank notes and just write on it the night before.  Let’s face it, who wants to predict what will work two weeks from now?! Shhhh…don’t tell my kids I did that! LOL

Here’s a quick video showcasing the kit. (*You do not need the stamp set to complete this kit! IMO)

This would be a great early holiday gift to give to friends, family members, or teachers (Imagine the joy the kids in school could enjoy as they anticipate a fun fact or activity each day)!

You can get even more bang for your buck by turning the boxes around and decorate the other end to use for another countdown activity throughout the year….days til the end of the school year, family vacation, etc. Or use the boxes for storage of small items…embellishments in your craft room, jewelry, hair ties or bows in a child”s room, nuts & bolts in the workshop, paper clips, brads,etc. in the office…. The possibilities are endless!!!!

That’s why Stampin’ Up! is excited to announce the first annual World Card Sending Week from Sunday, October 6 to Saturday, October 12. We’re setting a goal to send 50,000 cards that week! I would love your help in reaching our goal. I hope you will find some time to create this week.
