All Dressed Up for Back To School with Plaid Tidings

It’s back to school for most this week and while some will be learning virtually our private schools are going in person.  It is certainly challenging times for everyone! I made this fun backpack (which holds a pocket size hand sanitizer or a pen and sticky notes) for some of my teacher friends. How cute is this?!!!!

I was on a roll awhile back making all different purses with these dies and love how you can use the same dies to make backpacks! I added the largest stitched oval die cut and a piece of velcro to close the backpack. Love these with the plaid patterned paper!!! This one actually looks like the school uniform! I even “monogrammed” it with the Playful Alphabet Dies. I might go back and dress it up even more with a flower or something. Any suggestions? I could slip a note in the pocket too!

These are not only fun to make, they are quick & easy!  Here’s a peek back at some of the purses I made with the All Dressed Up Dies. (*Click on the photo if you wish to view the original post.)

You Can Never Have Too Many Purses

Last week I posted some purses and cards I made with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley (as well as a special offer)! If you missed that post, you can view it HERE. I have been making a bunch of those purses because, after all, you can never have too many purses right?! This time I created some purses with cardstock instead of DSP.

I used two different embossing folders on these and love them both! Luckily, the Parisian Flourish embossing folders is sticking around for awhile; however, the 3D Tufted Embossing Folder is retiring and is AWSL.  I couldn’t resist making a fancy purse with pearls on the tufted one!  Navy and white is such a classic purse!

I love these little pockets you can add to them too! It’s like an added little surprise when you tuck a little note in the purse pocket.

The reason I am on such a roll making purses is because I have been having a little fun during this pandemic….when I just NEED to get out, my husband, daughter, and I drive around dropping off surprises in mailboxes. We grab the Clorox wipes & gloves and it has turned in to a fun little family activity. I just love bringing smiles to others.  I want to see how many I can make for Mother’s Day surprises. I am filling them with Ghirardelli chocolates, a note card, and these adorable lipstick pens I bought from Amazon. (Boy do I love online shopping now more than ever!!!) The 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags are the finishing touch to wrap it all up for a pretty presentation.

I can see making these purses for birthdays, wedding showers, and hostess gifts throughout the year. These can hold five 3 x 3 note cards & envelopes and would be a nice little gift for someone. You can also tuck in a gift card! The All Dressed Up Dies really are a good investment. You don’t have to buy the bundle, you can just get the dies. (I do own both and really like the sentiments and flowers in the stamp set. It’s great for sending cards to girly girls!) I feel like I’ve already got my money’s worth with all the gifts I’ve made for Mother’s Day! Here’s a look at what’s included in the set.

Stampin' Up! Dressed To Impress Bundle - for inspiration and ordering information, visit juststampin.com - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can cut 4 of the buckles at once because they include 2 dies.  Same for the buttons. You do need to cut 2 of the purse; however, if you use DSP you can cut both at once and it still does a great job with scoring and stitching. You will need to cut twice if you use cardstock though. They really go together fast. Just fold on the score lines, add Tear & tape or Liquid glue to secure the sides and bottom and you’re done.  If you purchase the dies I will be happy to send you my photo tutorial how to put the purse together.

Each month I offer my Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet to Go. It includes 3 cards (1 is always a fun fold) and a 3D project.  I sent out the April kits last week and my 3D project was (I bet you already guessed!) the purse kit with the All Dressed Up Designer Series Paper. I love the way you can see both sides of the paper with these purses.  The pattern on the inside looks like you lined these special purses.

I even included a BONUS card last month to go with the purses. You just have to stamp your own sentiment….everything else is included!

The Best Dressed 3 x 3 note cards & envelopes are also retiring and they are now 1/2 price! You get a set of 24 cards & envelopes for only $4!!

I ordered more of these note cards and plan to decorate them for the nursing home residents. My friend is a nurse and says they just love getting cards especially now that they can’t have visitors.

I’ll be posting information about ordering my May “Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet to Go” this week so be sure to check back. I take pride in packaging everything so it arrives safely and makes crafting easy for you! You get the tutorials with the purchase of the kit so you can always make more if you want.  It’s a great resource of ideas to have.  You can just change the paper and sentiment and you have a whole new card!

****The Stitched So Sweetly, In the Tropics, Garden Gateway, Painted Labels, and Poppy Moments Dies are BACK IN STOCK… again! These have sold out again and again, so grab them now before they sell out again!!! Check out my Free Tutorials offer below!

THANK YOU so much to all who left comments on my blog for my daughter’s graduation! It was so sweet of you and you made BOTH our days!!!

Have a great day! Stay safe! Stay well!

Everything is Rosy Gets All Dressed Up

I love a good sale! When the Everything is Rosy Product Medley showed up on the Clearance Rack (on sale for $44 /reg. $80) I couldn’t resist! I have to say the Designer Series Papers in this set are some of the most gorgeous I have ever seen and I couldn’t wait to play with them! I chose my favorite 3D die (the purse from All Dressed Up) to make some beautiful gifts.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I am planning to give these adorable purses to my mom, sisters, and friends. They are a great size and can hold 3 x 3 cards, gift cards, candy, etc. I made coordinating cards and envelopes using the leftover pieces of DSP after I cut out the purse.

The DSP, ribbon, die cuts, embellishments, and foil paper I used on all of these came in the Everything is Rosy Product Medley (along with a stamp set and dies)! Check it out!

You can fold the sides of the purse in for a slim look (above) or have them wide for a large purse or tote (below).

I embossed the pocket on this one with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.

I love the little pocket die on the front.  You can dress them up so many different ways. I even added a little pull out note inside.

The sentiment is from the stamp set included in the product medley.  I used another sentiment from the set on the inside of the cards. I love the saying and different fonts!

These are quick & easy to put together.  I can’t wait to make more! Can you guess what I’m going to fill them with?
