A Bookmark for Back To School Night

 

Tonight was Back to School Night.  I always enjoy this evening getting to know the parents of my Pre-K students and establishing our partnership in learning.  I made bookmarks to give to each of the parents. Parents often ask me what they can do to help their child succeed in school. My #1 answer is always the same…Read to your child!  I hope this will be a little reminder.

Stampin Up Basic Butterfly Bookmark Idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I had fun making these in many different colors! I used Shimmery White cardstock. Each one measures 2 x 5 1/2. You can make 8 from 1 sheet of cardstock.

They are quick & easy to make using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Butterfly Basics Stamp Set, Bold Butterfly Framelits, some ribbon, baker’s twine, and Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I stamped the fern twice in Pear Pizzazz ink without reinking. I love this sentiment!

Stampin Up Basic Butterfly Bookmark Idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to give books as gifts and enjoy making a handmade bookmark to tuck inside. There is plenty of room on the back to write a personal note. The Tag Topper Punch is the most used punch in my collection…a must have in my opinion.

Do you have a favorite book? Leave a comment and let’s see what everyone likes to read these days!

Have a wonderful evening!

A Gusseted Bag for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #13

Gusseted bag made using the Striped Treat Bags, Merry Little Labels with Everyday Label Punch , and the Holly Embossing Folder by Stampin Up. For tutorials and supplies visit www.juststampin.com

I love the gold and white Striped Treat Bags in the Stampin’ Up! annual catalog. You can use them for food, cards, gifts, or treats. You can stamp them, add texture by embossing, or go to town with all kinds of embellishments.  You can even turn them into a gusseted bag like I did on today’s project!

Here’s this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge Board that inspired the elements I used for today’s project.

No automatic alt text available.

It’s easy to pick 3 and create!  I went down the right side: sequin, lace, gold. Check out this video to see how to turn this flat bag in to a freestanding gift.

How cool and easy is that?! Just trim 1/8″ from the bottom then score at 1″ and score each side at 3/4″. Then it’s just a couple of snips up from the bottom to the 1″ score line and you’re ready to fold and adhere.  From flat to gusseted in just a few quick and simple steps! I scored my bag first then ran it through the Big Shot with the Holly Embossing Folder before making the cuts.  I just love how these bags are so versatile!

I used the Merry Little Labels Stamp Set and coordinating Everyday Label Punch to decorate my bag. You will be able to purchase this set as a bundle (and save 10%) starting tomorrow (Sept. 1st) when the Holiday catalog goes live! The Merry Little Christmas (Mega) Suite contains products for all your holiday crafting needs: gift packaging, cardmaking, memory keeping, decor, and more! Stampin’ Up! trainer, Donna, shows you products from the suite, as well as some fun ideas for your Christmas crafting.

I love making my own tags and gift packaging and the products in this suite are perfect for that! I heat embossed the sentiment from Merry Little Labels with Gold embossing powder. I punched Gold Glimmer Paper using the Everyday Label Punch and adhered it behind the embossed label. I used the Gold Mini Sequin Trim with a piece of lace to tie around the ribbon. I attached the label to the bag with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Feeling Crabby?…Seas The Day!

Yesterday didn’t start out so well.  I was really disappointed because my plans (that I had put a lot of time and effort into preparing for) got cancelled. So when my friend Paula called to say she was picking up crabs for dinner and asked if I wanted to come, I decided to “Seas the Day”! I needed a quick hostess gift to bring so I made this simple wine tag.

Simple wine tag using Stampin Up So Many Shells and By the Seashore Stamp sets, Seaside Embossing Folder, and Color Theory DSP. For more ideas and to order Stampin Up product, visit my blog www.juststampin.com

It doesn’t get much easier or quicker that this!  I cut a 2 1/2 x 6 piece of Color Theory DSP and stamped the sentiment from So Many Shells using Night of Navy ink. I ran it through the Big Shot with the Seaside Embossing Folder then punched a circle from the top with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. The crab is from a retired stamp set (By the Seashore); however, it will remain in my collection forever.  (I live in Maryland and I love the beach and seafood!) The technique I used to color the crab can be done with other stamps. I simply stamped the image then, while the ink was still wet, I used the blender pen to color it in a little. All I had to do was cut it out and adhere to the tag! No fuss, quick & easy!

 

It was the perfect gift to bring to our crab feast! Look at all those crabs! YUM!

img_6109

This was just 1 of 3 platters full!  This crew couldn’t even eat them all!

img_6114

We had such a fun evening! When one door closes, another opens! I hope you “Seas the Day” and have a wonderful weekend! Cheers!

Let’s Be Friends Forever

Stampin Up gift tag using Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Eastern Beauty and Birthday Blossoms stamp sets. For more gift and card ideas visit www.juststampin.com

My friend Caroline loves to garden and she is always there with dinner and/or a pretty flower bouquet for anyone who needs it. She also appreciates and sends homemade cards. It saddens me that she is moving…her presence will be missed at our monthly birthday dinners and book club meetings as well as the many sporting events she attends supporting and cheering her children and friends. I made these tags to go with the favors for her going away party. img_4612

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stampin Up gift tag using Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Eastern Beauty and Birthday Blossoms stamp sets. For more gift and card ideas visit www.juststampin.com

The sentiment from Eastern Beauty stamp set was the perfect choice to go with the “Forget Me Not” seed packets. I stamped it on a piece of 2 x 4 1/4 Very Vanilla cardstock in Wisteria Wonder ink. I also stamped some flowers from Birthday Blossoms.  I cut a piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock the same size as the Very Vanilla then punched the top of both pieces with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and sponged the edges with a sponge dauber. I offset the pieces and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals then added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.

I wrapped the seed packets in clear cellophane bags and tied the tag with Very Vanilla ribbon. Here’s a photo of Caroline with her “Forget Me Not” floral cake.

Hip Hip Hooray…It’s A Happy Day!

My daughter is home for the summer! Her first year of college went by fast! The last three days have been rough but, thanks to my wonderful husband who drove 24 hours through torrential downpours, everyone is happy to be home safe and sound (and drying out)! I had a few of her favorite things waiting for her when she arrived.

img_1997-1

There were fresh flowers in her bedroom along with a little gift wrapped in her favorite colors. I like to decorate the bags to go with gifts.  In this particular case I also wanted to cover up the design that was on the bag. I enjoy recycling bags and this one was especially fun!  I attached a slide out tag right on the bag.

img_1998

This is a fun way to give a gift and card. I used many retiring items to make today’s project.  The good news is they are still available and on sale from 30% – 50% off!! I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Confetti Embossing Folder (on sale for 50% off while supplies last).  I adhered it to the front of the bag and added 1/4″ strips of silver foil. I love the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and was sad to see it on the retirement list.  I cut the thinlit from a piece of Wisteria Wonder (my daughter’s favorite color).  The thinlit is intended to be used on the inside of a card to pop up when opened so it doesn’t cut out completely.  I just used my paper snips to cut the sides.

I cut a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock to layer behind and used the Project Life Corner Rounder to round the corners. I attached it with glue dots then popped it up with foam adhesive strips along 3 sides. Leave the end open for the tag to slide in and out.

img_1936

 

I embossed the pull out tag with the Confetti Embossing Folder before stamping the sentiment from the Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set.  I stapled a piece of Bermuda Bay stitched ribbon to use to pull the tag. It slides in and out easily!

Think of all the different sentiments you could use on this tag to go with this die cut…It works for graduation, birthday, promotion, sporting events, etc.  I added some organza ribbon and silver sequin trim to the bag to finish it off! (Both of these items are retiring.) Do you wonder what was inside the bag?  A candle in her favorite scent…lilac.  I added some ribbon the the jar and stamped the perfect banner to attach to the jar.

img_2001

Here’a few photos of my daughter opening her gift.

I hope I have inspired you to reuse those gift bags.  There’s so many ways to just add paper and get a whole new look.  One of my favorite quick & easy ways is to adhere a clear envelope to the bag and slide your card right in the sleeve.  You can purchase the products used to make today’s project from my online store. Retiring items are available while supplies last.

I Think I Can with Designer Tee Stamp Set

Today’s project showcases a stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog, the Designer Tee stamp set. You can earn this stamp set for FREE with a qualifying order of $50 or more.  As a Pre-K teacher, there was one stamp in particular in this set that I knew I had to have!  Every year I read The Little Engine That Could to my students the first week of school.  This story sets a positive tone for the year.  Often when my students are learning something new I will ask, “What do you say when you’re trying something new?” They love to chant, “I think I can!” I love both my jobs…teaching in the morning and creating cards to inspire and share in the afternoon/evening.  I made these little tags to share with my students throughout the year. They can hang these on their book bag, use as a bookmark, or showcase their award.

img_0595

I made a bunch of these in no time at all! I started with 2 x 4 1/4 pieces of Whisper White and Pacific Point cardstock. I punched each with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and Project Life Corner Rounder.  I stamped the images using Pacific Point ink.  I cut 10″ strips of ribbon and tied them together with 1/8″ silver ribbon.  I can write a little handwritten note on the back of the whisper white piece.  Quick & simple!

img_0597

Check out this video showing some other ways you can use the Designer Tee Stamp set.

I like how Holly shared how to use this stamp set with the coordinating Custom Tee Bundle from the occasions catalog as well as That’s the Tag Bundle.  The images in the set are so versatile to use for other projects too! In my recent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator magazine, Ashley Van Camp shared how she used the Designer Tee stamp set to create cards for many different occasions. Love the envelopes to match made with the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper and the Envelope Punch Board.

Here’s to Cheers and Cheerful Tags

The Here’s to Cheers Stamp Set and Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies combine to create cute tags to embellish a bottle of wine, gift card, plate of treats, or pretty much any gift. This set is so versatile and can be used year round for hostess gifts, birthdays, etc. Here’s one I made for New Years.

img_7957
Ring in the New Year with the Here’s to Cheers Stamp Set and Cheerful Tags Framelits from Stampin’ Up!

I love how elegant this tag looks.  And it was so quick & easy to make with the Cheerful Tags Framelits. I heat embossed the sentiment from Here’s to Cheers with gold embossing powder and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I thought the stitching tied in with the new metallic ribbon that is so soft and gorgeous!  (You can earn this ribbon for FREE during Sale-A-Bration starting January 4th!) I layered the sentiment on some gold glimmer paper I cut from the Layering Squares Framelits.  The gold bow paper clip adds that touch of elegance.

Elegant wine tag in gold and vanilla made using the Cheerful Tags Framelits from Stampin’ Up!

Here’s another version I made for individual little wine bottles.  These would make great table favors for a dinner party or little gift for a friend.

img_7976
Use the Cheerful Tags Framelits to make a wrap for a bottle

For this bottle wrap I used the same die but I cut off the part of the tag that has the hole to go over the top of the bottle.  I wanted to make it wrap around the bottle and this was easy to accomplish by threading some gold ribbon through the openings in the die cut.  I tied a simple knot and embellished with some gold foil I cut using another die in the set. I heat embossed the sentiment and punched it out with the 1 3/8″ circle punch.  I really love this sentiment…it can be used for birthday, anniversary, wedding, graduation, or any special occasion.

Check out this short video from Stampin’ Up! showcasing the stamps and dies.

Here’s a few more ideas using this stamp set and dies.

W is for Warmth & Cheer DSP Stack

Welcome to my ABC’s with DSP series. Today I am featuring the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack. This paper stack has 48 sheets: 4 each of 12 double-sided 6 x 6 designs…perfect for lots of projects!

I was planning my upcoming workshops this weekend and decided to make some tags for my Boxes, Bags, and Tags class next month. I love to make tags for the gifts I give and I also like to give tags as a gift.  It makes a great little hostess gift for your holiday parties.

Handmade tags using Stampin’ Up! Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack and Perfect Pines Framelits

The patterns in the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack have a warmhearted, homespun feeling.  I like to layer my tags so I can write a little note on the layer underneath or just stamp to and from.  My tags measure 2 x 4 1/4 (you get 10 from a sheet of cardstock).  I punched the cardstock with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I  cut the trees and stars using the Perfect Pines Framelits.  The stars are cut from scraps of Delightful Dijon. I adhered the trees to the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals and used a glue dot for the star. The sentiment from Flurry of Wishes is stamped using Basic Black ink.  I tied the Burlap Ribbon with some Lined Thread and made a bow to complete the tags.  These are simple and quick to make!

Here’s another idea for quick and easy gift giving using Stampin’ Up! Gift Boxes.

Wouldn’t you love to give or receive a card like this? I love to receive handwritten notes and cards and I have a special “treasure” box where I save them.  I like to go through them when I need a “pick me up” or just want to remember the moment.  I have a couple of cards and letters from my dad and grandmother who have passed away and I love seeing their handwriting and rereading their letters.

Sharing handmade kindness makes a difference!

Let me know if you want to order a set and I can add it to my order. (You will save on shipping.) I love the sweet edging the dies create and classic shapes that coordinate with Stampin’ Up!

T is for This Christmas DSP

Welcome to the ABC’s with DSP!  This month I am featuring projects showcasing Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper. Today I am showcasing This Christmas Designer Series Paper.

One of the things I love about this paper pack is you get 4 of each of the designs.  That’s great when you want to make multiple cards using one design.  You can get 6 4″x 6″ pieces from each 12 x 12 sheet…that’s 24 from each design.  Great for making Christmas cards!
