Sending Sunshine

Box of Sunshine banner

I was so excited to get my June Paper Pumpkin kit, Box of Sunshine! I have been putting together boxes of “Sunshine” to gift to friends & family as well as essential workers. I knew I wanted to give lots of sunshine gifts so I ordered the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes (Item #153069) from the new Annual Catalog (found on page 152). You get 10 boxes for $7.50 – that’s just 75 cents a box! You can fit a set of note cards & envelopes in the box or fill it with treats like I did for my “Sunshine Boxes”.

The bigger yellow box is what the Paper Pumpkin kit came in.  I used the stickers from the kit on the top of the box and left room to address it to send it in the mail. I reused the tissue paper and filled the box with a cosmetic bag and some essentials for the bath. Stampin' Up! June 2020 Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used one of the card fronts to make a little box to hold a hand sanitizer. How perfect is that pineapple sticker on the front?! *UPDATE 7/18/20 – Click HERE for the tutorial to make this mini hand sanitizer box.

I used the stamp set and extra items in my Paper Pumpkin kit to dress up the gifts inside. I cut the cards to 3 3/4 x 5 1/2 and used them on the front of the mini boxes. It’s fun to play with the different elements in the kit and come up with some alternative ideas. Here’s a peek at two of the mini boxes I made.

All I did for this box was add some of the gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and cut the sticker strip with the Triple Banner Punch. I put gum, M&M’s, Tic Tacs, Honey candy, lemonade mix, and Lip balm inside.

I’ve made 8 of these so far using the items in the kit! Here’s another one that uses the retired sunburst die. I cut the die from one of the card fronts.

I also made some tags to go with the Sunshine & Lemons Hand Soap I ordered from Bath & Body Works! It was a perfect match!

I made the tags with the leftover pieces from the cards I cut for the boxes. I cut them 2 x 4 and snipped the leftover black & white sticker strips to decorate the edges. I punched the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. The lemons & leaves were fron the kit and I added the white flowers I cut with the Cherry Blossoms Dies. I love the bumblebee gingham ribbon with this! The sentiment is from two stamps sets that I combined, Under My Umbrella and Itty Bitty Greetings. Here’s a close up of the tag.

I did actually make one card from the kit. A pineapple is the emblem of welcome and hospitality.  I used the Well Said stamp set for the welcome greeting. I love the gold foil and watercolor image as well as the coordinating envelopes!

I love your kits. Your attention to detail is amazing. Instructions are fantastic and precise so that each item is quick and easy to put together. The pictures are a big plus in following the instructions.. Thank you so much for making these kits available to us.   Bernice P

Oh my goodness, thank you! I so enjoyed the last kit! Kept me occupied for a week! And this set is equally as beautiful! You do such thoughtful and intriguing projects! Please know that your talents and creativity are appreciated! (And your directions are a retired teacher’s dream!)  Nancy B.

I love Jeanie’s kits – they are are like getting a beautiful gift when you open the envelope! Her directions are clear and I have loved what I have gotten. Because I am away from home for the winter I have limited supplies with me, so these kits make it much easier for me to continue crafting while I am away!  Nancy H.

Your photos and instructions are great. Christmas was just too much fun. I was able to whip up some extra gift card holders using your measurements which was so fast and easy.  I will send you an email to reserve another fun kit! It is fun to use papers and stuff I don’t have yet too.  Chris R. from Iowa

Please count me in! Besides being great cards, it’s the BEST value out there and I’d do this even if you charged more–your time is worth more than you are charging!
Thanks, Jeanie. Excited to see the new things you’ve come up with.
Susan

I worked on your Card Buffet this afternoon. What a delightful way to

spend an afternoon! Your directions and photos really are EXCELLENT. I
think that part of the reason that you write such good instructions is
because you are programmed to teach little kids; it makes you really
good at spelling out every step. Well done!  ~M~

My kit arrived today and I’m so excited!  What great cards and I love the flexibility.  They’re beautiful.   Thanks, Susan

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M

A Fun Fold Farewell to the Retiring In Colors

Stampin' Up! Stitched Labels Dies and 2018-2020 In Color fun fold card ideas for friend, get well, thank you, birthday, and more - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I couldn’t resist one last nod to the 2018-2020 retiring In Colors.  I love the bold colors and will miss Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick the most. This is one of the cards that was included in my Just Stampin’ Card Kit To Go for May. I always include at least one fun fold card in each monthly kit.  I made 5 different versions to show the versatility of my card kits.  I create them so that you can use any stamp set you already have to add a sentiment.  All you have to do it stamp and adhere! Everything you need to create is already cut, scored, and ready to assemble. Plus you can refer to the tutorials to create more on your own!

This fun fold design can be used vertically or horizontally.  There’s so many possibilities for adding the flower depending on whatever sentiment you use.  Here’s a close up look at each card.

Which color will you miss the most? Make sure you have ink refills, and your favorite color cardstock so you can keep creating with these bright colors!

Here’s what you need to do to order the card and tutorial:
