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.

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!

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

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!

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