At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I love to give homemade gifts and my project today is one that will last year after year! What a pretty reminder who to send birthday cards to each month!Stampin' Up!Oval Occasions Perpetual Birthday Calendar Box - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I plan to gift these to my family and friends for their birthday this year. I had fun creating these with different colors and designer series papers.

This one showcases the lovely patterns in the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper Pack. I even punched the dragonflies from the DSP using the Dragonflies Punch. For the birthday sentiment I adhered Basic White to Stampin’ Up! foam adhesive sheets and cut it out with the Well Written Dies. Each month showcases some of the different designer series patterns.

The months were printed on Basic White cardstock and punched using the Double Oval Punch. I love punches and this one is on the list of My Favorite Things. It is available as a bundle with the Oval Occasions Stamp Set which I used to stamp the sentiment on the box below.

This box is striking with the black & white True Love Designer Series Paper and Magenta Madness. The flower cluster is fussy cut from one of the patterns.

My next box features the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper which you can get for FREE with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration.

I used the Pretty Perennials stamp set for the sentiment and punched the flower using the Daisy Punch.

Which one do you prefer?

You can view the complete list of products I used to create these boxes below.
Check back tomorrow and I’ll have the tutorial and a PDF to print the calendar and months.

Berry Delightful Strawberry Treats for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I really like making little treats and gifts for my friends and family! Delivering treats has been a much needed “get out of the house activity”. I look forward  to driving around town and leaving little surprises in mailboxes. I made two different versions of today’s project. One stands upright and the other folds over to reveal the surprise treat when opened. This little treat can be given any time of year or you can make it to give out for Valentine’s Day… just change the sentiments.

One of my favorite treats is chocolate covered strawberries. (Oh yum!) While this isn’t the real thing, it’s a fun alternative with a much longer shelf life. Both versions have a slide out box which holds 3 chocolate hearts/strawberries.

I made the stand alone version first then decided to tweak it so it would fold over and open like a card. All inclusive! You can add a message on back of the stand up version if you want. Here’s a look at each project.

This version is just 1/4″ shorter and has an extra score line.

I used the Berry Blessings Stamp Set and the lovely Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. This exclusive bundle is FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. It was top on my wish list!!! Here’s a look at the set.

This set coordinates with another stamp bundle in the new Mini Catalog, the Sweet Strawberry Bundle. I love that this bundle includes the Strawberry Builder Punch!

The Sweet Strawberry stamp set is the sweetest stamp set ever! Full of plump strawberries and all-occasion sentiments, the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set is perfect for handmade cards, scrapbook pages, and more. It’s a set you can use year-round—change the colors of the foliage images to match the season, and use the sentiments anytime. This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set; it allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. This is a Distinktive** stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images. Here’s a close up of the realistic looking strawberry!

I hadn’t intended to create my own box for today’s project as I was planning to use the new Love You Always Treat Boxes (#154285) found on page 11 in the new Mini Catalog. However, those boxes were much larger than I realized!  While they are great and would be perfect to hold 2 (large) actual chocolate covered strawberries (they are food safe!), it took about 20 of my little “strawberries” to fill the box! I wanted to make several of these treats to give so I opted to make my own box. I’m going to be totally honest here….While I love how these turned out, it took me several attempts (and a few wasted sheets of cardstock) to get the measurements and scores just right for what I wanted!!! That being said, please check back tomorrow and I’ll have the measurements and photo tutorial for you (and possibly some of my “other” versions. LOL).

Which one do you prefer…The stand up or fold over version? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below!

Snowflake Wishes for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects showing “My Favorite Things” from any of the two current catalogs or the upcoming catalog in January. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

One of my favorite things to make is fun fold cards. I used the gorgeous Snowflake Wishes Bundle to create a lighted easel tent card for Christmas.Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes light up fun fold Christmas card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
This card would look great on a mantel or end table. It could also serve as a great little nightlight in a kids room or bathroom. I embossed a piece of vellum for the center piece using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. When the card is closed you get a peek at the sentiment on the inside.

Here’s a few more photos showing the inside.

I stamped a snowflake on the inside where the tea light goes (just in case the recipient wondered where to place it. LOL) I cut a strip from the foam adhesive sheets to pop up the sentiment. The sentiment is cut using the stitched rectangle die from Ornate Layers. (That’s another set with some awesome dies!) I added the die cut snowflakes using mini glue dots and accented with Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I think this card looks pretty even when it’s not lit up!

The Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set and So Many Snowflakes Dies are not retiring; however, the bundle is retiring so if you want to save that extra 10% (and of course you do!!!) you need to purchase it by Jan. 4th.Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes Bundle - for inspiration, exclusive tutorials, and more, visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
The sentiments in this set are great for Christmas, friendship, thank you cards, and more! The “appropriately named” So Many Snowflake Dies are so unique (just like snowflakes)! I shared another card I made with this set yesterday. You can view it HERE.

Check back tomorrow for more details! Another one of my favorite things is a SALE! Don’t forget to check out the Clearance items and Year-End Closeout Sale. The Winter Snow Embossing Folder and Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper I used on today’s card are retiring and on sale while supplies last! You can view the list of products I used below.
