Cut It Out Fun Fold for the Pals Blog Hop

Blog Hop August

Welcome to the Pals August, 2018 Blog Hop. We love to cut it out so this month our creations feature our favorite “cuts” using punches, Framelits and Thinlits from the current Stampin’ Up! catalog.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I have a fun fold to share with you today inspired by Dawn Griffith!  I love fun folds and this one is quite simple and can be used for a variety of occasions!

Stampin Up Detailed With Love Fun Fold friend card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Do you recognize the stamped floral image? It’s from the Make A Difference Stamp Set and it coordinates perfectly with the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper! I stamped it in Memento ink and colored it to match using the Stampin’ Blends.

It takes just a few quick cuts and this fun fold card is ready to assemble! Here’s the measurements:

Card Base (Crumb Cake): 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Layer 1 (Rich Razzleberry): 3 3/4 x 5 1/2
DSP Layer: 3 1/4 x 6 Score at 5 9/16
Whisper White Layer (inside piece): 3 1/4 x 5 1/2

Circle Punches:
2 1/4″ : Glimmer Paper
2″ : Punch from Layer 1 cardstock
1 3/4″ : Whisper White (for stamped layer)

Layering Circles Framelits:
Cut from Layer 1 cardstock with 2 3/8 straight & 2 3/4 Scallop
Cut from DSP with 2 3/8 straight

Fold the DSP layer along the score line and adhere to the back of the Rich Razzleberry layer before adhering the Rich Razzleberry layer to the card base. Adhere the Whisper White layer to the Rich Razzleberry so it is hidden under the DSP layer. Adhere the scallop circle piece to frame the circle cut from the DSP. Wrap ~12″ ribbon around the DSP layer and tie in a simple knot. Adhere the stamped layer to the cardstock and Glimmer layers and attach inside the opening using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Make A Difference with Personalized Place Cards

I love to entertain, especially over the holidays.  I’m not much of a cook (my husband does most of the cooking in our family) but, I am all about the presentation! I am getting a head start on some personalized place cards using the Make A Difference and Blended Seasons stamp sets.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons and Make A Difference Personalized Name Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are really fun to make! Yesterday I shared two Christmas cards I made with the holly from the Blended Seasons stamp set. (If you missed that post you can view it HERE.) While I had everything out on my desk, I cut a bunch of 2 x 3 Thick Whisper White cardstock and stamped the holly using Memento ink. We usually have between 20-25 people for Christmas Eve dinner (that’s just our immediate family) so I thought it would be a good idea to get a head start. I plan to take these with me when we take my daughter back to college next week and color them at the hotel at night. Adding the names with the Make A Difference stamp set is a breeze as it is a photopolymer stamp set so its easy to see where to stamp the letters.

Just think of all the possibilities with this stamp set…you can make any sentiment you want! Check out this short video as Brandi from the Stampin’ Up! home office shares some more ideas with this stamp set.

I have used candy canes on a holiday buffet table before to label different food items but I think the personalized place card is so special! I used a rubber band to hold the three candy canes together then covered it up with ribbon tied in a bow. Quick & easy!Stampin Up Blended Seasons and Make A Difference Personalized Name Card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Blended Seasons Stamp Set will be available August 1 -31 while supplies last.  It is a limited edition bundle that I know you will love and use year round! Plus Bonus Days is coming in August where you earn $5 coupons for every $50 you purchase! Get your wish list ready. I’ll share all the details next week.

I really enjoyed reading everyone’s comments yesterday about your Christmas cards.  I am amazed at how many some of you make!  WOW!  I make between 60-75 (all the same) to send to family and friends.  Of course I play around and make several cards each year until I decide on “the one”.  I always seem to find people to give the “extra” cards to each year.  You can never spread too much cheer!!

I promised to pick a random winner from the comments to send a little gift to along with one of yesterday’s cards. The winner is…….. #4 Mary Grunder!!!  Congratulations Mary!  Email me ( your address and I will put your goodies in the mail.  Thanks to all who left comments.  I have missed you!!!

Have a wonderful day!
