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 added the little cut out for a sneak peek at the sweet treat!

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!

Did you know you save 10% when you purchase the bundle? The sentiments and fonts in this stamp set are one of my favorites this holiday season! And I love these dies! They cut and emboss. Here’s a little tip: Put a piece of removable tape (or sticky note) to to keep the petals and outline together to cut and emboss at the same time with just 1 roll through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine! It is quick & easy!Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Dies - for tips and inspiration visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I created a similar box for my Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet to go last month.  This was the 3D project included with the card kit.(*You’ll want to sign up for my special Holiday Kit this month. Details to come!)Stampin' Up! Flowers For Every Season Acetate Gift Box - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
I am having so much fun making these for gifts. I love how simple t is to decorate the acetate boxes for different occasions. Each box can hold 5 3×3 cards plus envelopes. And there is so much more you can put in these boxes! Check back to see what I’ve put in some of mine! (I made one for my daughter’s birthday next week and I don’t want to spoil her surprise.) I’d love to hear your ideas for what to put in the box. Leave a comment below and I will pick a random winner to send a kit to make today’s poinsettia box project.

Mini Post It Note Easel Holder

I’m back! I’m happy to be stamping and creating again! I’ve been helping my daughter move and get settled in to her new apartment. It was a challenge to pack all her stuff and both her cats and travel over 400 miles (with all the restrictions and safety precautions) but we did it! Stamping has been my therapy this week as I left a big part of my heart in Massachusetts!

Many teachers and students (my daughter included) are heading back to school this week.  It will certainly be a different learning experience for everyone! I have a quick & easy gift idea for teachers, students, coworkers, or friends.

Stampin' Up! Apple Builder Punch and Plaid Tidings Mini Post It Note Holder idea for back to school - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I would be lost without sticky notes! I use them all the time! Combine them with the new Plaid Tidings Patterned Paper and the Apple Builder Punch and you have a little gift that’s sure to brighten someone’s day! Check out all the different patterns in the Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Pack.

Stampin' Up! Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 Patterned Paper - for inspiration and ordering information visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I am having so much fun creating with these gorgeous plaids! I cut my paper in 2 inch strips so I could punch 6 apples from 1 (6 x 6) sheet. (I have many teacher friends I wanted to make these for!) I received one of these mini post it note holders from my friend, Susan Itell, several years ago.

I played around with the measurements and made mine a little different. You can check out Susan’s version and photo tutorial HERE. Here’s the measurements to make mine:

Fold and burnish the first 2 score lines forward then fold the last score line back.  Add adhesive just between the score lines where the flap will fold back. The Mini Sticky Notes will act as a stopper and hold the easel in place when open. Adhere the sticky notes close to the bottom.

I punched the stem and leaf from Pretty Peacock Designer Series Paper (2019- 2021 In Color Paper Pack) and adhered to the apple with Mini Glue Dots. I adhered the apple with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I couldn’t decide if I liked the apple with a bow from Linen Thread or Gold Cord. Which do you prefer? Here’s a closeup of each.

You can stamp any sentiment on the sticky note or write a personal message! I used the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set for my sentiments. You can make a bunch of these at a time! They really are quick & easy to do! I bet you can think of someone who could use one of these! Check back and see what else I made with this paper pack!
