Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet TO GO – January 2019

Do you like making cards and 3D projects but don’t have everything you need?  Do you find you have limited time to craft and wish there was a way to make it quick & simple? Well, if you answered yes to either of these questions, my “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” to go is just what you need!

“Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” TO GO cost:  $12 (plus shipping and handling)

Here’s how you can reserve your seat at the buffet table:

Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) with “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” in the subject line. Include your full name, mailing address, and email address.  I will send you a PayPal invoice. *You do not need a PayPal account in order to make your payment. Upon receiving my invoice, you may choose the credit card/debit card option instead of using a PayPal account. Instructions are given and the process for payment is simple. Orders need to be placed by January 28th. (*Please note I can only accept a limited number of orders each month. I may reach my limit before the deadline.)

Just Stampin’ Buffet TO GO Kits include:

  • Pre-cut supplies for four projects (stamped images not included, in accordance with Stampin’ Up! policy)
  • Envelopes for non 3D projects
  • Pre-punched items and/or Big Shot items, such as die cuts and textured embossed
  • Ribbon and/or embellishments

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit!  You just need to stamp and adhere.

If you have ordered my card kit buffet before, I would love for you to leave a comment. Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

I love your kits. Your attention to detail is amazing. Instructions are fantastic and precise so that each item is quick and easy to put together. The pictures are a big plus in following the instructions.. Thank you so much for making these kits available to us.   Bernice P

Oh my goodness, thank you! I so enjoyed the last kit! Kept me occupied for a week! And this set is equally as beautiful! You do such thoughtful and intriguing projects! Please know that your talents and creativity are appreciated! (And your directions are a retired teacher’s dream!)  Nancy B.

I worked on your Card Buffet this afternoon. What a delightful way to

spend an afternoon! Your directions and photos really are EXCELLENT. I
think that part of the reason that you write such good instructions is
because you are programmed to teach little kids; it makes you really
good at spelling out every step. Well done!  ~M~

My kit arrived today and I’m so excited!  What great cards and I love the flexibility.  They’re beautiful.   Thanks, Susan

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

*Please note… I can only accept a limited number of orders each month. I may reach my limit before the deadline. I will send out PayPal invoices on or before January 28th. You will receive an email when your kit is shipped (~first week in February). It will include an attachment with the project samples, supplies, and directions. You can substitute different stamps and sentiments using what you have or just copy my samples. The choice is up to you!

Have a wonderful day!

Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

It takes just a few simple cuts and to make these adorable tote bags!

I love punches and the Daisy Punch is one of my favorites! Punches make it quick & easy to create and this project is all about quick & easy! I am a teacher so August means getting ready for back to school.  These adorable totes would make great little gifts for teachers or students.  (They would also make great favors for a bachelorette party or wedding shower!)

I started with a new product that will be available in the holiday catalog (Sept. 1), Acetate Card Boxes.  You get a set of 10 for $6.50.

These boxes are great for holding a set of cards to give as a gift. This month’s blog hop is all about “cuts” so I decided to think outside the “box”. I cut the box in half (at 2 7/8″) to make these totes. Each card box will make 2 totes which makes this project not only quick & easy but inexpensive too! Just fold and close each end and you are ready to decorate. *I put a glue dot on each flap to help keep it closed so it would stand up easily.

The Designer Series Paper insert measures 4 3/8 x 6 1/4.  Score at 2 7/8 from each end. Fold and slide inside the clear box.  Cut 2 10″ pieces of ribbon for the handles.  Adhere to the tote with Tear & Tape.  *I adhered the Tear & Tape directly to the box on each end then removed the backing to attach the ribbon. (Repeat on the back side.)

I used the Daisy Punch to punch 2 daisies from Whisper White cardstock and adhered one on top of the other.  I cut a circle from Daffodil Delight using the 1/2″ Circle Punch. I attached this to the front of the tote using a Stampin’ Dimensional. That’s all there is to it. I told you it was quick & easy! There are so many gift possibilities for these totes! You can fill them with a gift card, tissues, lipstick, gum, candy, sticky notes, etc.

Here’s the view from above with some of the different items tucked inside.

Changing the DSP, ribbon, etc. can give it a totally different look.

For this tote bag I used the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper, Metallic Edge Ribbon, and the Bow Builder Punch. Wouldn’t this be a beautiful favor for a wedding shower?!

Quick & Easy Monogrammed Tote Bag made with an altered Acetate Card Box, Designer Series Paper, Ribbon, and Stampin Up Large Letters Framelits. For directions, supplies, and more visit www.juststampin.com

I love monogrammed bags, etc.  The Large Letters Framelits are perfect for personalizing this gift bag! I also added a Mini Tassle embellishment. I love how Stampin’ Up! color coordinates everything! The In Color Ribbon selection matches the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! has so many patterned papers, punches, dies, and ribbons to choose from! The Wood Textures DSP would make a great brief case for a masculine look. The Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper would be great for a child…put a box of crayons inside and let them color their own. (Little snack bags would be fun to put inside too!) I am making a bunch of these to give as gifts and some I will sell at my Holiday Open House. Do you have a favorite?

Thanks for Being You for Tic Tac Toe Challenge 03

Today is Thursday which means it’s time to play Tic Tac Toe.  Here’s this week’s challenge board.



Here’s a card I altered for this week’s challenge.


I made a T for Tic Tac Toe by using elements across the top row and down the middle: blue, butterfly, bow and butterfly, twine, stitching.  It’s easy and so much fun to create using the challenge board. I just realized I also made tic tac toe going down the far right side without even trying: bow, scallop, rectangle. I hope you’ll play along! Just pick 3 (or more) and create. Then go to http://www.tictactoechallenge.com and enter your card.


Stamp Set: All Things Thanks Ink: Night of Navy Papers: Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy, Whisper White, Glimmer Paper, DSP Tools & Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Ovals Framelits, Butterfly Thinlits, Whisper White Twine, Stampin’ Dimensionals
