Art from the Heart for the Pals Blog Hop

2019 January From The Heart graphic for BLog Hop

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! January is all about making “Art from the Heart,” featuring projects for Valentines Day, Thinking of You, Get Well, or Sympathy. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make 3D projects to give as gifts. (Did you see the other framed projects I made for Christmas?) Today’s projects are quick & easy using the Large Letters Framelits and a 4 x 6 picture frame.

My first project makes a great Valentine or anniversary gift for the love of your life. Who will you give the “key to your heart”?

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I started with a piece of 4 x 6 All My Love Designer Series Paper.  The beautiful heart is from the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies which is part of the All My Love Suite in the new Occasions catalog.  I cut the heart and die from thick Whisper White cardstock and adhered them to the DSP.  I made a matching bow using Lovely Lipstick Ribbon and adhered it on top with a glue dot.  The finishing touch was adding the key from the Classic Garage Metal Elements.

After 33 years I’m giving this “key to my heart” to my husband!

I couldn’t wait to make my next project as soon as I saw the gorgeous Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper! My beautiful niece got married last summer and the dress she wore for her engagement photo matched the fresh fig floral vellum design.

I used another heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies and this one cuts out the heart in the center as well as the scalloped frame. I cut the photo and a piece of Fresh fig cardstock and adhered the photo inside the framed piece.

The soft elegant designs in the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper are perfect for weddings, anniversaries, and more. It is so easy to hand cut the vellum to use for accents like I did on the corner of my frame. Here’s a look at the other designs.  (It’s one of my favorite paper packs in the Occasions catalog!)

Sunday Showcase

Happy Sunday! I have a showcase of projects for you today! I haven’t posted much lately but, now that the holidays are behind us, I am looking forward to blogging more often! I am super excited about the offerings in the new Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration! I just found out that many of you have not received your catalogs yet! Oh my! I called Stampin’ Up! as I had them sent directly to you and it seems there has been a delay in delivery due to the holidays.  They ensured me that they were sent out the week of Dec. 10th but bulk mail takes a bit longer to arrive.  If you have shopped with me in the last 6 months, I sent you a catalog.  Please email me and let me know if you received your catalogs or not.  If your catalog has not arrived by Monday, a new one will be shipped to you! I sincerely apologize for the delay and please know that you can view the catalogs online while you wait for yours to arrive. Click on the catalog images on the right or in the drop down menu across the top. (If you are viewing this in your email, you may need to click on the blog title first to view online.) I will also include the links below.

The holidays just flew by and amid all the Christmas festivities, celebrations, and annual cookie exchange, I was busy creating! I made table favors, treat holders, cards, tags, gifts, and projects for family and friends.  Most went out the door before I even had time to photograph them or blog.  Here’s a few I did mange to snap a shot before I gifted.

Stampin Up Copper Tin and Joyous Noel treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love the Copper Tins!  I embellished with my favorite DSP and filled 16 of them with my homemade cinnamon candy!  If I showed up on Christmas Eve without this candy I do believe my family would send me packing!  LOL  After 25 years it has become a Christmas tradition!  I used the Joyous Noel DSP but you could easily use other patterns. These would be great to fill for Valentine’s Day!  I layered 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 pieces of DSP on 3 x 3 Copper Foil.  I was inspired by fellow Pal, Brian King  Here’s a few more  designs.

Stampin Up copper tins treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These tins can also be used to hold 3 x 3 note cards.  Check them out in the annual catalog and leave a comment below if you have another idea what you could gift in them.

My sisters are huge Scrabble players so I made each of them family frames with old tiles.  I like how it showcases our beautiful DSP.  You can easily change out the paper each season.  I chose DSP to match their home decor. I bet the new All My Love Designer Series Paper would look great as a background for Valentine’s Day!

I made several gift card holders for my nieces & nephews. This pop up gift card holder is really quick & easy to make.  Just change the DSP for different occasions!

Every year I make calendar cards and change them up a little.  The daisy punch and leaf punch made these quick & easy this year which was good because I made almost 50!

Every year I make 60-70 Christmas cards to send to family and friends. When we celebrated my daughter’s 21st birthday at Universal Studios this past year, I took the opportunity to snap a family photo. I thought this sentiment from the Snow is Glistening stamp set was perfect to go with our photo!

Shine A Light On Peace for the Pals Blog Hop

December All that Sparkles and Shines post graphic

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I live in Maryland not far from the Antietam National Battlefield. One of our family traditions is to visit the battlefield the first weekend in December for their Annual Memorial Illumination. It is the largest memorial illumination in all of North America and this year marked their 30th anniversary. Each luminary (over 23,000) represents a soldier’s sacrifice during the bloodiest one-day battle of the Civil War. (I’m a bit of a history buff.) There are no words adequate to describe the event…to see these hallowed grounds lit up is unbelievably surreal!

Antietam National Battlefield

I was inspired by my recent visit to create this set of luminaries.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are simple to make. For each one I cut a 5 x 8 1/4 piece of Garden Green cardstock and scored each at 2, 4, 6, and 8. I used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (available Jan. 3rd in the Occasions Catalog) to cut the shape out for my light to shine through. I was so excited when I saw these dies in the new catalog! You get 13 different sizes which feature stitching inside and outside the frame! How cool is that?!

Stampin Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I cut my vellum at 1 7/8 x 3 1/2 and adhered it to the back with glue dots. I cut the letters from the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper using the Large Letter Framelits and adhered these to the vellum. I used Tear & Tape along the 1/4 edge to secure together.

A battery operated tealight fits inside for a nice glow. I added some Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon to tie it together for that “sparkle and shine”.

Stampin Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can make these to give as a gift or decorate your mantle or bookcase. These make the perfect night lite for a child’s bedroom (you could spell out the child’s name) or any room (use any die).

Here’s a few more photos of the Illumination.

I am thankful for our men and women in the Armed Forces throughout the world.  My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives, so the world may someday enjoy world peace.

Thanksgiving Favors

Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for you and appreciate that you take the time to stop by!  I love to create and share with you! I enjoy making 3D projects and always love to have little table favors for family and friends for holidays and other special occasions. I made these for my Thanksgiving  table favors this year.

Stampin Up Pillow Boxes and Painted Harvest table favor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin’ Up! Pillow Boxes are the perfect size for gift cards, small gifts, notes, candy treats, and favors! They are so versatile for year round use! You get 10 boxes for just $5 (which doesn’t break the bank)! Every year I’ve filled table favors with my Blessings Mix (*see recipe below) but I thought I would change it up this year and use an M&M poem I found.  My daughter is a math major and I know she will appreciate one of the verses on this one.

I love to make 3D Projects and these treat boxes are quick & easy to make and just stinkin’ adorable! I used the Takeout Treats Thinlits (and the leaf from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits) for a simple fall/Thanksgiving treat. I made these for card club yesterday in less than an hour before the event!

A Magical Birthday

Stampin Up Magical Mermaid and Star of Light 3 x 3 heat embossed birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My daughter is turning 21 next week! We like to give birthday “experiences” and this year we surprised her with an early celebration.  We sent her the confirmation for her plane ticket for Fall break however; instead of a ticket to fly home, we sent her a ticket to Orlando!  She did not know that was her destination until she went online to check in 24 hours in advance and thought her dad had messed up the flight.  LOL  Needless to say, she was thrilled when she found out she was going to Universal Studios (the Wizarding World of Harry Potter) and we would be meeting her there.  We are HUGE Harry Potter fans and I can still remember reading aloud all seven books to her. Our son lives in Massachusetts and he took off from work and flew in to surprise her. We had a wonderful time!

We had a few other surprises for her too!

I found a “golden snitch” bracelet and made a special holder (which could also be used to hold a gift card).
Stampin Up Detailed With Love and Broadway Bound 21st birthday gift card holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love that you pull the ribbon to reveal the gift/card inside.

Details:
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Gold Foil scored at 1 1/2 and 4. Punch a hole in the center using 1/4″ circle punch. Adhere with tear & tape on back.
Cut ~12″ ribbon and loop around cardstock (Gold Glimmer Paper) and slide inside.
Insert ribbon through hole and tie a knot.
Decorate front as desired.  I used Broadway Bound DSP and Gold Metallic Ribbon.
Pull ribbon to view/open.

We love to play family games and I found this fun idea on Pinterest.

Happy Halloween Happy Mail

Happy Halloween! It feels more like Christmas this week with happy mail, surprise packages, and treats left at my doorstep! Here’s a look at some of the unexpected blessings I received.

Stampin Up Halloween Sampler idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Made by Liza Stucker

This Spooktacular Halloween sampler was sent to me from Liza Stucker.  I can not even imagine the hours that went in to creating this awesome project! It will be framed and treasured for years to come! I love all the 3D and details on each!

My friend Susan is the queen of gift wrapping and always does an amazing job with her presentation.  This sweet surprise was left on my doorstep. What a treat to come home to delicious homemade ginger cookies after school! Yum!

My friend Paula and I filled treat bags this week for our local shelter. Sister Corda used to volunteer there and would bring them her homemade candy and treats.  We put special stickers on the bags in loving memory of Sister Corda. The workers at Reach and the homeless that come through the doors miss Sister Corda too!

I enjoy Halloween! My kids come dressed in costumes and we parade all around the school.  I get to dress up every year too! Usually I am a storybook character but this year I changed it up a bit and decided to go as a character from a nursery rhyme my students just learned. Can you guess which one?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is filled with kind people and may your blessings be “three bags full”!

Kindness Rocks!

I love the beach!  We had a wonderful family vacation combing the beach, eating seafood, and just relaxing and chatting away as the waves crashed along the shore. (I think that was the best therapy for me!!!) As we walked along the beach path there was this “rock garden”.  It just made me smile as I read the weathered board and looked at all the different painted rocks.img_5208

How simple yet powerful! It hit me that this is something I could do with my students!  I go back to the doctor this week and I’m hoping to be cleared to go back to school. I would love to involve my Pre-K students in painting rocks and making a special Kindness Garden at school.  I teach my little ones that they can make a difference (even at 4 years old) and we role play ways to show kindness.  This would be something they could be involved in as well as the school community. I can just imagine the kids on their way home from school or church choosing a rock or adding one of their own to share. I’m excited!

The sentiment on my card today says it all.  A little kindness, whether it’s a card, a smile, or a painted rock can brighten someone’s day. I hope you are inspired to spread a little kindness today.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This simple card layout is one that would work with whatever Designer Series Paper and sentiments you have. I used the Abstract Impressions Stamp set with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits. The ribbon is wrapped around the DSP layer and tied with Linen Thread. The DSP is from the retired Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack.

I have another project to share with you that ties in with today’s theme.

Stampin Up Darling Label Punch Box treat holder- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I bought some Chocolate “Rocks” at a gift shop and knew I could use them to make little gifts for my team members. The sentiment is just perfect!

The stamp set and punch are from the Darling Label Punch Box.  It includes a beautiful tin filled with crafting must-haves…a versatile 6-piece photopolymer stamp set, clear stamp block, 2 ink spots, and a matching punch.

I hope you enjoyed today’s projects. I would love to hear from you!  Leave a comment sharing an act of kindness…either something you did or something someone did for you. I will pick a random winner to receive some blog candy! I am blessed with many wonderful people in my life.  I strive to pay forward the kindness shown to me. An act of kindness that will forever stand out in my mind was a beautiful handmade prayer shawl I received in the mail after my dear friend, Sister Corda, passed away. It was from someone I had never met that reads my blog.  I was so touched and comforted by her gift and thoughtfulness. I can’t thank her enough! I had the pleasure of meeting Nancy in April and she is truly a wonderful and special person!

Have a great day!

Make A Difference with Personalized Place Cards

I love to entertain, especially over the holidays.  I’m not much of a cook (my husband does most of the cooking in our family) but, I am all about the presentation! I am getting a head start on some personalized place cards using the Make A Difference and Blended Seasons stamp sets.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons and Make A Difference Personalized Name Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are really fun to make! Yesterday I shared two Christmas cards I made with the holly from the Blended Seasons stamp set. (If you missed that post you can view it HERE.) While I had everything out on my desk, I cut a bunch of 2 x 3 Thick Whisper White cardstock and stamped the holly using Memento ink. We usually have between 20-25 people for Christmas Eve dinner (that’s just our immediate family) so I thought it would be a good idea to get a head start. I plan to take these with me when we take my daughter back to college next week and color them at the hotel at night. Adding the names with the Make A Difference stamp set is a breeze as it is a photopolymer stamp set so its easy to see where to stamp the letters.

Just think of all the possibilities with this stamp set…you can make any sentiment you want! Check out this short video as Brandi from the Stampin’ Up! home office shares some more ideas with this stamp set.

I have used candy canes on a holiday buffet table before to label different food items but I think the personalized place card is so special! I used a rubber band to hold the three candy canes together then covered it up with ribbon tied in a bow.

The Blended Seasons Stamp Set will be available August 1 -31 while supplies last.  It is a limited edition bundle that I know you will love and use year round! Plus Bonus Days is coming in August where you earn $5 coupons for every $50 you purchase! Get your wish list ready. I’ll share all the details next week.

I really enjoyed reading everyone’s comments yesterday about your Christmas cards.  I am amazed at how many some of you make!  WOW!  I make between 60-75 (all the same) to send to family and friends.  Of course I play around and make several cards each year until I decide on “the one”.  I always seem to find people to give the “extra” cards to each year.  You can never spread too much cheer!!

I promised to pick a random winner from the comments to send a little gift to along with one of yesterday’s cards. The winner is…….. #4 Mary Grunder!!!  Congratulations Mary!  Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) your address and I will put your goodies in the mail.  Thanks to all who left comments.  I have missed you!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Just Add Color Guest Stamper

My daughter, Ariane, is on the board of her Hall Council at Georgia Tech. When she was home for spring break she wanted to make some thank you cards for the people who helped out throughout the year. Just Add Color Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice for these “housing” thank you cards.

Ariane used Stampin’ Blends to color the different houses and then fussy cut each one out.  She loved using the new Stamparatus which made adding the sentiment a breeze!  Here’s a few photos.

The Whisper White note cards & envelopes made putting this project together a breeze.  The cards are prescored and ready to go. Ariane used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the houses to her cards.  Here’s a look at all 13 of her colorful cards!
