Hip Hip Hooray…It’s A Happy Day!

My daughter is home for the summer! Her first year of college went by fast! The last three days have been rough but, thanks to my wonderful husband who drove 24 hours through torrential downpours, everyone is happy to be home safe and sound (and drying out)! I had a few of her favorite things waiting for her when she arrived.

img_1997-1

There were fresh flowers in her bedroom along with a little gift wrapped in her favorite colors. I like to decorate the bags to go with gifts.  In this particular case I also wanted to cover up the design that was on the bag. I enjoy recycling bags and this one was especially fun!  I attached a slide out tag right on the bag.

img_1998

This is a fun way to give a gift and card. I used many retiring items to make today’s project.  The good news is they are still available and on sale from 30% – 50% off!! I started with a piece of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Confetti Embossing Folder (on sale for 50% off while supplies last).  I adhered it to the front of the bag and added 1/4″ strips of silver foil. I love the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and was sad to see it on the retirement list.  I cut the thinlit from a piece of Wisteria Wonder (my daughter’s favorite color).  The thinlit is intended to be used on the inside of a card to pop up when opened so it doesn’t cut out completely.  I just used my paper snips to cut the sides.

I cut a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock to layer behind and used the Project Life Corner Rounder to round the corners. I attached it with glue dots then popped it up with foam adhesive strips along 3 sides. Leave the end open for the tag to slide in and out.

img_1936

 

I embossed the pull out tag with the Confetti Embossing Folder before stamping the sentiment from the Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set.  I stapled a piece of Bermuda Bay stitched ribbon to use to pull the tag. It slides in and out easily!

Think of all the different sentiments you could use on this tag to go with this die cut…It works for graduation, birthday, promotion, sporting events, etc.  I added some organza ribbon and silver sequin trim to the bag to finish it off! (Both of these items are retiring.) Do you wonder what was inside the bag?  A candle in her favorite scent…lilac.  I added some ribbon the the jar and stamped the perfect banner to attach to the jar.

Here’a few photos of my daughter opening her gift.

I hope I have inspired you to reuse those gift bags.  There’s so many ways to just add paper and get a whole new look.  One of my favorite quick & easy ways is to adhere a clear envelope to the bag and slide your card right in the sleeve.  You can purchase the products used to make today’s project from my online store. Retiring items are available while supplies last.

C is for Card Tin

img_8394

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am sharing the Sale-A-Bration Card Tin which I embellished and added a Perpetual Birthday Calendar. I love this card tin and the best part is it’s FREE!  During Sale-A-Bration, you get a free item of your choice for every $50 you spend (before shipping & tax).

img_8392

I love to give a set of cards as a gift and I love how this makes a beautiful presentation.  I send a set of cards to my mom for Mother’s Day and as birthday gifts for friends & family. This tin is perfect to keep cards organized.  You can choose to organize them by categories (by using the Tin of Cards Stamp Set to label your dividers as pictured in the catalog) or make a Birthday card box and sort your cards by months like I did.  I used the Perpetual Birthday Stamp Set and stamped the months on each of my divider tabs.  The tin comes with 9 customizable card divider tabs. You can easily make 3 more using thick whisper white cardstock so you’ll have one for each month. This is really easy to put together. Cut the Happy Birthday die from the Party Pop-Up Thinlits using the Big Shot and Precision Base Plate. Adher it to the tin with mini glue dots.  Print out a perpetual calendar for each month, trim with your paper snips, and adhere it to the dividers. (I used Snail adhesive to adhere the calendars.)  Then just fill in the names of family members & friends beside their birth date on the monthly dividers. What’s great is you( or the person you gift it to) can use this year after year.  A special thanks to Lee Beulher and my husband for making the printable calendars for me (and sizing them to fit on the dividers).  I’ve included a print friendly version for you below.

The tin is a beautiful way to store handmade cards for birthdays or all occasions.  You can even customize your tin with die-cut letters and designs as shown below.

My daughter wants one to keep on her desk for the special cards she receives. (She claims she has run out of space to leave them all displayed on her desk.)  I like that she wants to keep them! I actually have a “memory box” in my closet with special items I have saved over the years…handwritten notes from my grandmother and dad (both have passed away) as well as special cards and letters from students, family, and friends.  I also have some handmade cards and drawings that my kids made when they were little.  I call it my “feel good box” and every once in awhile I like to pull it out and remember.  My husband has a basket (that was his mom’s) with all the cards and notes he received after his mom died. It’s amazing how such a simple gesture such as a card or handwritten note can make a difference.  This is why I love what I do! I hope the cards I make will put a smile on someones’s face or offer comforting words when needed.  I know how much I love to receive a card in the mail and these days everyone sends their wishes via Facebook, texts and emails so it’s even more exciting to get an actual birthday card in the mail. It’s just a bonus if it’s handmade!! So here’s my special for today…purchase $50 or more from my online store and I will send you the birthday card kit I featured yesterday along with the Happy Birthday die cut I used to embellish my card tin.  Be sure to enter the Hostess Code EPGDT3KF when you check out.

Happy 90th Birthday to Sister Corda!

Last week I had my monthly get together with my Paper Pumpkin Players.  Everyone put together their kits and made lots of alternative cards and projects (Thanksgiving table favors, boxes, etc.) but the fun didn’t stop there. After spending the afternoon crafting we surprised Sister Corda with a Paper Pumpkin Party in honor of her 90th birthday!  She is one of the most amazing people I know and she loves her Paper Pumpkin kits and crafting as much as I do!

Sister Corda

Before I share pictures of our Paper Pumpkin get together and surprise dinner party, I want to show you one of the cards and gifts I “wrapped” for Sister Corda. I had a special request to make a 90th birthday card for Sister Corda (and to order her a new set of the standard cutting pads for her Big Shot).  Here is the card I made.

Stampin Up Party Pop Up Thinlits and Large Number Dies Birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made a double z fold card. (Click HERE  for directions and to see the one I made previously for my daughter.) I used the Large Numbers Framelits to cut the 90 from Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I used the Party Pop-Up Thinlits to cut the Happy Birthday die then I cut it apart to go across the front.  The inside sentiment is from a retired stamp set and was the perfect saying for Sister Corda. I stamped the sentiment then punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch.

Stampin Up Party Pop Up Thinlits and Large Number Dies 90th Birthday Fun Fold Card Idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I wanted to wrap the cutting pads in matching DSP so I used the envelope punch board and a piece of 12 x 2 DSP to make a large envelope to hold the cutting pads. It was easy to make following the directions right on the envelope punch board. The standard cutting pads fit perfectly inside!

I decorated the large custom envelope by placing the card in a clear envelope and adhering it to the front of the package.  I added some Mint Macaron ribbon and it was complete and ready to deliver.

Here’s a few of the Paper Pumpkin projects we made. Pictures below is one of the alternative cards Sister Corda made with the leftover punched leaves from the kit. She sponged the leaves and embossed trees and added a sentiment from a past Paper Pumpkin kit.

I surprised Sister Corda with one of her favorite dinners (Maryland crab cakes) and an ice cream cake for dessert. Everyone popped their “pumpkin” crackers and adorned their party crowns.
