I love to make gift tags for all my gifts. It takes no time at all making three at a time! Here’s a look at some of the different projects I made.

Halloween treat ideas using the Tags Tags Tags Bundle by Stampin' Up! - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These tags are perfect for treat bags and boxes. You can use the ready made Tiny Treat Boxes and Pillow Boxes from Stampin’ Up! or make your own little treat bag from a piece of 6 x 6 DSP like I did below.

Christmas bag idea using the Tags Tags Tags Bundle from Stampin' Up! - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This little bag is quick & easy to make! Score a piece of 6 x 6 DSP at 1 1/2 and 4 1/2 on one side then score the other side at 2 1/4 and 3 3/4. I used the Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Fold on the score lines then cut along the score lines and trim as shown below.  Adhere with Tear & Tape or Liquid Glue for a strong hold.

I pinched the sides and punched a hole at the top with a hole punch.  I thread the ribbon through the tag and bag  and secured with a bakers twine. I added the jingle bell before tying a bow. The adorable tag is stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

I had fun sponging the Halloween tags! If you look on page 56 in the Holiday Catalog you will see where I got my inspiration! The catalog is full of so many great ideas be sure to check them out and CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) away! This tag was sponged to look like the candy corn treat enclosed!

The Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon wraps it all up for a a nice presentation!

The Trip of Tags Dies has extra little dies for the holidays like these jack-0-lanterns I used on the tag for my pillow box.

How cute are these?! There’s a snowflake for winter and hearts for Valentine’s or other “lovely” projects! You’ll be seeing more of these soon as I have been having fun creating all kinds of projects! The pillow boxes are great for enclosing gift cards, treats, or small gifts.

These tags make sweet & simple 3 x 3 note cards too.  I made this adorable Halloween one to enclose with the Paper Pumpkin treat boxes I sent my daughter for her dorm residents. She loves books so this pattern from the Monster Bash  Designer Series Paper was perfect for her!

Stampin' Up! Tags Tags Tags Bundle and Monster Bash Designer Series Paper 3 x 3 Halloween note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I popped up the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added the raven from the Monster Bash Enamel Shapes to cover up the hole at the top of the die. My daughter is very familiar with ravens from the Tower of London. (I wouldn’t get that close!!!)


Here’s a look at the 48 Paper Pumpkin boxes from the September kit I shipped with her little Halloween Hello card. (*I adapted the boxes from the kit directions to make them easier to ship.)

I love the Paper Pumpkin kits for quick & easy all-inclusive projects! The upcoming November kit is all about Christmas tags.

T is for Tutti-Frutti Treats

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today it is all about family, friends, and fruit with the Tutti -frutti Suite.

Growing up I would go blueberry picking with my dad and 5 siblings.  My dad would tie buckets around our waste so both hands were free for faster picking! My mom would  bake homemade pie and all kinds of blueberry treats. YUM! I’m not much of a pie baker but I do enjoy making homemade breads and jam.  Strawberry season will be here before you know it and I love to make strawberry jam! The Tutti-Frutti suite makes it quick & easy to create tags and gift enclosures to go with homemade goodies (or store bought favorites)!

Stampin Up Tutti-frutti hello friend note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This little gift card is for Sister Corda’s roommate.  After Sister Corda passed away, I have been spending Monday evenings with her roommate.  We chat, have dinner together, and watch a few episodes of Longmire on Netflix. Sister Al loves blueberry jam and enjoys some with her bagel every morning.  I bought some of my favorite Stonewall Kitchen Wild Maine Blueberry Jam to give to her.

Stampin Up Tutti-frutti hello friend 3 x 3 note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make note cards to go with gifts. To make this simple note card start with a 3 x 6 piece of cardstock and score it at 3″.  I added a layer of Night of Navy cardstock that is a 2 3/4″ square. Then I added a piece of  2 x 2 5/8  DSP and some gingham ribbon. The sentiment is from the Fruit Basket Stamp Set, cut out with the new 1 1/8 Scallop Circle Punch, and layered on a 1 1/4 punched Night of Navy circle. I popped the sentiment up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Quick & easy!

Here’s a quick 1 minute video showing how to make another quick & easy 3 x 3 card using products from the Tutti-frutti Suite!

I will be heading to Hartford, Connecticut in two weeks for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage convention. I can’t wait to get together with “my people”!  Six of us rented a historic home just outside of Hartford so we could be together for a little extended vacation.  We are planning to stamp, shop, sightsee, and I’m sure chat until the wee hours of the morning.  It is always so much fun when we get together! I made these little gifts using the Tutti-frutti Designer Series Paper for my “Stampin’ Sisters”.

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I got this idea from Sam Donald (Pootles.co.uk).  I changed mine up a bit and used coordinating DSP rather than washi tape. I bought several different fruit pens and had so much fun making these that I just couldn’t stop!  I wanted to try different color combinations and ribbons. I ordered the fruit pens from Amazon.  I love the way they coordinate with our DSP! I love the pens with the bauble fruit charms (above) but I also love the way the DSP and ribbon pictured below can serve double duty as a  bookmark. Two gifts in one!

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper bookmark & gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how they turned out! For the first set of pens (with the charms) I used a smidge smaller than 2 x 8 cardstock, 1 3/4 x 6 DSP  in the center, and (2) 1 3/4 x 3/4 strips on the top and bottom. These fit in Stampin’ Up!’s  2 x 8 Cellophane Bags.  You get 50 sturdy bags for just $3.00!

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used a sightly smaller piece of cardstock for the other pens (a smidge less than 2 x 7) and cut 3/4″ off the top of the cellophane bags.  The DSP measures the same. I used the 1/4″ hole punch to punch an opening for the ribbon. I fussy cut the fruit from the DSP.  (You could stamp and punch fruit using the Fruit Basket stamp set and Itty Bitty Punch Pack.) I used glue dots to adhere the fruit pieces to the cellophane bags.

Would you like to receive one of these Tutti-Frutti pens? I am sending one to everyone who places an online order of $50 or more with me in March.  It’s my “party favor” and will be included in my birthday party thank you kit for ordering this month! I appreciate each and every order and love sending little thank you gifts and card kits to show my appreciation. I will also be giving one away to a random winner on my blog.  Leave a comment sharing something you enjoy doing with friends or family members and you could be the lucky winner.

Yesterday I showcased all 7 suites from the Occasions catalog and asked my readers to share which one was their favorite suite.  If you missed that post you can view it HERE. From the comments it looks like Petal Passion is the most popular for it’s versatility and great sentiments!  I enjoyed reading all the wonderful comments about the other suites as well.  Like me, some of you liked several and have a hard time choosing a favorite!

I have been making so many projects lately using the products in the Tutti-Frutti Suite! You can view previous projects I have shared HERE or HERE.

Stampin’ Up! 2017 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peeks

I am so excited to share with you more from my weekend of fun in Atlanta!   I really enjoyed meeting and getting to know several of my fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.   We got to see and play with great new product coming out in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs (which you will be able to order from starting January 4th).  There are many new products which I know you are going to love as much as I do! (I suggest putting a Stampin’ Up! gift certificate on your Christmas wish list!  Tell your family and friends to contact me and I can help with that!) Here is a sneak peek at the new catalogs.


We made several cards at the OnStage event using some of the new products.

There were also photo ops and lots of display boards showcasing the new product and ideas. As I walked around each corner I said, “WOW!” again and again!

Susan and I posed in front of one of the displays.


My suitcase was packed full going home with all the swaps, new product gifts, and prizes. I actually had to ship some of my clothes home as I wasn’t leaving my new stamp sets behind! LOL


Our team, the PALS, gathered for a pizza social after the event. It was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and congratulate our fearless leader, Mary Fish, who was named the TOP Demonstrator in the WORLD! WOW!!!  I love this picture with my uplines. I am surrounded by greatness!

Lisa Pretto, Susan Itell, me, and Mary Fish

If you are not currently working with another demonstrator and would like to receive a copy of the new catalogs, send me an email (j.stark@myactv.net) and I will be happy to put you on my mailing list.

Thanks for stopping by!  I would love for you to leave a comment and let me know what you think of the sneak peeks.  Hope you have a wonderful day!
