A Wicked Good Treat

I was born and raised in Massachusetts and “wicked” was a common term.  It brings back childhood memories when I hear it and I have to say the new Holiday Catalog is “wicked good”! Two of my favorite suites in the new Holiday Catalog are the Painted Autumn Suite and Spooky Night Suite. Watch this fun video showcasing the “wicked good” products in these suites.

How fun was that video?! I made some wicked easy nugget holders using the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper, some Kraft cardstock, and the Spooky Cat Stamp Set.

Hershey Nugget treat holder using Stampin Up Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and Spooky Cat Stamp Set. For directions and ordering visit www.juststampin.com

I started with a piece of 3 x 8 1/4 Kraft cardstock for this project.  I was thrilled Stampin’ Up! brought this paper back in the Holiday catalog.  It is part of the Merry Little Christmas 12 x 12 Cardstock Pack (Item # 144622).  I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score it at 1 3/8, 1 7/8, 3 1/4, and 3 3/4.

img_6910

The DSP from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper is so cool!  It reminds me of cutting paper dolls as a kid!  You can punch out the cats, cut out hats, or cut the 12 x 12 DSP into 3 x 3 squares for the moon and tree.  (You get 16 from 1 sheet of DSP!!!)

I used the Spooky Cat stamp set to stamp the owl in Crumb Cake, Basic Black, and So Saffron.  I love how this stamp set is photopolymer which makes it so easy to see with 2 step stamping.

I cut another piece of DSP 1 3/8 x 3 for the front of the treat holder.  I also cut (3) 1 x 3 strips to cover the Hershey Nuggets.  I used Glue Dots to adhere the DSP to the nuggets.

You don’t need any adhesive to close the treat holder.  Just wrap it around the nuggets and tie ribbon or twine around to hold together. I used the new Vintage Crochet Trim on the owl treat holder and Solid Black Baker’s Twine on the cat treat holder. These are such fun treats to give to young and old alike! I have been on a roll making a bunch! Here’s the view from the side so you can see how it stays together.

Here’s another look at each of these cute treat holders!

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!

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

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!

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 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.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Everyone who ordered from me in August will receive one of these bags with their THANK YOU KITS! Emboss it or embellish it…the choice is up to you! I love to spoil my customers and I appreciate each and every order! I send out card kits and more each month to my customers. My card kits make it quick & easy to create using your new stamps! Everything is included to make cards and/or 3D items…you just need to stamp and send!

Be sure to check back tomorrow as the new Holiday Catalog goes live. I will have a cool video for you!

Have a wonderful day!

Back to School with Coffee Break Suite

Today is the day teachers go back to school. It’s going to be a long day!!!  I am not a coffee drinker; however, many of my coworkers are, including my assistant. I made this little welcome back gift for her.

Coffee Cup Sticky Notepad and matching pen made with Stampin Up Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. For directions and more visit www.juststampin.com

I know she will get a kick out of this coffee cup sticky notepad. We have lists for everything (and then we lose the lists)! I found the sticky notepad at Walmart. The idea came from fellow demonstrator, Dawn Olchefske (DOstamping with Dawn).

The “coffee rings” print from the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice to decorate my little gift. (If you saw the paper “coaster” my assistant uses for her coffee cup you would agree! LOL) Here’s a look at the other patterns.

Coffee Break Designer Series Paper by Stampin Up. For inspiration and more visit www.juststampin.com
Coffee Break Designer Series Paper Item#144155

I used Dawn’s measurements to cut the DSP then changed it up a bit to decorate mine. Cut a 3/4″ x 8″ strip of wood grain pattern DSP and adhere it to the center of 2″ x 8″ piece of “coffee rings” DSP.  Wrap the DSP around the coffee cup sticky notepad and adhere together in the back. Next, I wrapped my ribbon around and tie a bow.  The sentiment from Watercolor Wings is stamped in Early Espresso ink and cut out with a banner framelit. I used some Linen Thread to tie it to the ribbon. Quick & easy gift!

I cut a 7/8″ x 3 1/2″ piece of the coffee bean print DSP to line the R.S.V.P. pen  These pens are easy to take apart.  Just roll the DSP around the pen barrel and insert inside. Love how it makes a matching gift set!

If you didn’t want to give a pen you could always add a treat instead.  I made another one and this time I added some coffee bean candy.  I was so excited to see the treat tubes in the Holiday catalog (on page 53)! These were in a former Paper Pumpkin kit and were a huge hit!!! I bought several refill kits and filled them with all kinds of goodies for Halloween, birthdays, Christmas, etc.  I can’t wait to start decorating and filling them again!

A Treat from the Sea

Treat Box using the Stampin Up Popcorn Box Thinlits, Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, and the Eclectic Layers Thinlits. For directions and ordering visit my blog at www.juststampin.com

My daughter loves sea glass and really has an eye for finding these gems at the beach. She hit the jackpot this summer when we were in Massachusetts. (One day alone she found over 40 pieces!)

On our way home from Georgia we stopped at a Cracker Barrel for dinner. I am always on the lookout for different little candies and small gifts. This bag of candy caught my eye and I knew it would be the perfect little gift to send to my daughter.

img_6778

I love to make little bags or boxes for gifts and the gem print from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper was perfect for my sea glass candy. I used the Popcorn Box Thinlits to make my treat holder.

Treat Box using the Stampin Up Popcorn Box Thinlits, Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper, and the Eclectic Layers Thinlits. For directions and ordering visit my blog at www.juststampin.com

I cut the die out 4 times…2 from Soft Sky cardstock, and 2 from the DSP.  I adhered the DSP to the cardstock using the bold tip end of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue before adhering my box together. I made a bow using the gorgeous Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon and cut the gem from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits. Check out this video to see how to put the popcorn box together!

As you could see in the video, you can make so many different boxes for so many occasions using the dies in this set. These dies are so versatile and make it quick & easy to create fun projects!
