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!

Art from the Heart for the Pals Blog Hop

2019 January From The Heart graphic for BLog Hop

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! January is all about making “Art from the Heart,” featuring projects for Valentines Day, Thinking of You, Get Well, or Sympathy. 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.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make 3D projects to give as gifts. (Did you see the other framed projects I made for Christmas?) Today’s projects are quick & easy using the Large Letters Framelits and a 4 x 6 picture frame.

My first project makes a great Valentine or anniversary gift for the love of your life. Who will you give the “key to your heart”?

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits and Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Framed Art Gift Ideas for Valentine's Day, Wedding, or Anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I started with a piece of 4 x 6 All My Love Designer Series Paper.  The beautiful heart is from the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies which is part of the All My Love Suite in the new Occasions catalog.  I cut the heart and die from thick Whisper White cardstock and adhered them to the DSP.  I made a matching bow using Lovely Lipstick Ribbon and adhered it on top with a glue dot.  The finishing touch was adding the key from the Classic Garage Metal Elements.

After 33 years I’m giving this “key to my heart” to my husband!

I couldn’t wait to make my next project as soon as I saw the gorgeous Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper! My beautiful niece got married last summer and the dress she wore for her engagement photo matched the fresh fig floral vellum design.

Stampin Up Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper is the perfect background for framed art for wedding or anniversary - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used another heart from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies and this one cuts out the heart in the center as well as the scalloped frame. I cut the photo and a piece of Fresh fig cardstock and adhered the photo inside the framed piece.

The soft elegant designs in the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper are perfect for weddings, anniversaries, and more. It is so easy to hand cut the vellum to use for accents like I did on the corner of my frame. Here’s a look at the other designs.  (It’s one of my favorite paper packs in the Occasions catalog!)

Sunday Showcase

Happy Sunday! I have a showcase of projects for you today! I haven’t posted much lately but, now that the holidays are behind us, I am looking forward to blogging more often! I am super excited about the offerings in the new Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration! I just found out that many of you have not received your catalogs yet! Oh my! I called Stampin’ Up! as I had them sent directly to you and it seems there has been a delay in delivery due to the holidays.  They ensured me that they were sent out the week of Dec. 10th but bulk mail takes a bit longer to arrive.  If you have shopped with me in the last 6 months, I sent you a catalog.  Please email me and let me know if you received your catalogs or not.  If your catalog has not arrived by Monday, a new one will be shipped to you! I sincerely apologize for the delay and please know that you can view the catalogs online while you wait for yours to arrive. Click on the catalog images on the right or in the drop down menu across the top. (If you are viewing this in your email, you may need to click on the blog title first to view online.) I will also include the links below.

The holidays just flew by and amid all the Christmas festivities, celebrations, and annual cookie exchange, I was busy creating! I made table favors, treat holders, cards, tags, gifts, and projects for family and friends.  Most went out the door before I even had time to photograph them or blog.  Here’s a few I did mange to snap a shot before I gifted.

Stampin Up Copper Tin and Joyous Noel treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love the Copper Tins!  I embellished with my favorite DSP and filled 16 of them with my homemade cinnamon candy!  If I showed up on Christmas Eve without this candy I do believe my family would send me packing!  LOL  After 25 years it has become a Christmas tradition!  I used the Joyous Noel DSP but you could easily use other patterns. These would be great to fill for Valentine’s Day!  I layered 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 pieces of DSP on 3 x 3 Copper Foil.  I was inspired by fellow Pal, Brian King  Here’s a few more  designs.

These tins can also be used to hold 3 x 3 note cards.  Check them out in the annual catalog and leave a comment below if you have another idea what you could gift in them.

My sisters are huge Scrabble players so I made each of them family frames with old tiles.  I like how it showcases our beautiful DSP.  You can easily change out the paper each season.  I chose DSP to match their home decor. I bet the new All My Love Designer Series Paper would look great as a background for Valentine’s Day!

I made several gift card holders for my nieces & nephews. This pop up gift card holder is really quick & easy to make.  Just change the DSP for different occasions!

Every year I make calendar cards and change them up a little.  The daisy punch and leaf punch made these quick & easy this year which was good because I made almost 50!

Every year I make 60-70 Christmas cards to send to family and friends. When we celebrated my daughter’s 21st birthday at Universal Studios this past year, I took the opportunity to snap a family photo. I thought this sentiment from the Snow is Glistening stamp set was perfect to go with our photo!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I got back last night from visiting my son, family, and friends in Massachusetts. We had a wonderful time but it’s always so hard to say good-bye!  My daughter flew back to Georgia this afternoon and I went back to school.  (At least my sweet little ones always bring a smile to my face!)

Shine A Light On Peace for the Pals Blog Hop

December All that Sparkles and Shines post graphic

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! December is time for glitz and bling with  “All that Sparkles & Shines”. Today we feature projects that sparkle or shine. Maybe even a little of both.

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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I live in Maryland not far from the Antietam National Battlefield. One of our family traditions is to visit the battlefield the first weekend in December for their Annual Memorial Illumination. It is the largest memorial illumination in all of North America and this year marked their 30th anniversary. Each luminary (over 23,000) represents a soldier’s sacrifice during the bloodiest one-day battle of the Civil War. (I’m a bit of a history buff.) There are no words adequate to describe the event…to see these hallowed grounds lit up is unbelievably surreal!

Antietam National Battlefield

I was inspired by my recent visit to create this set of luminaries.

Stampin Up Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are simple to make. For each one I cut a 5 x 8 1/4 piece of Garden Green cardstock and scored each at 2, 4, 6, and 8. I used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (available Jan. 3rd in the Occasions Catalog) to cut the shape out for my light to shine through. I was so excited when I saw these dies in the new catalog! You get 13 different sizes which feature stitching inside and outside the frame! How cool is that?!

Stampin Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I cut my vellum at 1 7/8 x 3 1/2 and adhered it to the back with glue dots. I cut the letters from the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper using the Large Letter Framelits and adhered these to the vellum. I used Tear & Tape along the 1/4 edge to secure together.

A battery operated tealight fits inside for a nice glow. I added some Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon to tie it together for that “sparkle and shine”.

Stampin Up Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and Large Letter Framelits Peace Luminaries for Christmas Home decor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can make these to give as a gift or decorate your mantle or bookcase. These make the perfect night lite for a child’s bedroom (you could spell out the child’s name) or any room (use any die).

Here’s a few more photos of the Illumination.

I am thankful for our men and women in the Armed Forces throughout the world.  My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives, so the world may someday enjoy world peace.

Stampin’ Up! released their retiring products and year end close out sale today and I was sorry to see the Spirited Snowman stamp set on the list.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog!  This was the swap card I made for my friends attending the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Convention last month.

I love this happy little guy and he was so much fun to color with my Stampin’ Blends.  I enjoy making this fun fold card. (You can view my photo tutorial for how to make it HERE.) Here’s a picture of it from the side.

I like the way this fun fold card stands up.  It can also fold flat to mail in a regular envelope.  I dressed is up a little with some snowflakes cut from the Blizzard Thinlits Die (also retiring) and the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  Here’s my attempt at an infinity shot of these guys all lined up.

Special Edition…Just Stampin’ Holiday Kit Buffet To Go

I am offering a special “holiday edition” of my Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet To Go this month! Take the stress out of the holidays with some ready to go handmade projects to make your gift giving quick & easy! The special holiday edition of my kit buffet includes 4 projects… a gift card holder, a box, some tags, and a calendar card kit (you can keep for yourself or give as a gift)! *My calendar cards have been very popular! You can view some past calendar cards HERE. (I change them up a bit each year.)

Holiday “Kit Buffet” TO GO cost:  $12 (plus $3.00 shipping and handling)

I have been as busy as Santa’s elves designing these projects so I can get them out to you in time for the holidays. Here’s how you can reserve your seat at the holiday buffet table:

Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) with “Holiday 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 December 5th.

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

Today I finally got around to doing the last Card Buffet.  I LOVED the 
fun fold card this time.  It is just too cool! Thanks for doing the Buffet.  Your ideas are so good and your printed directions are out of this world.  I know from experience that teaching little people makes you really, really good at specific directions.  You 
go, Girl!

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 Dec. 5th. You will receive an email when your kit is shipped (on or before Dec. 10). 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!

Thanksgiving Favors

Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for you and appreciate that you take the time to stop by!  I love to create and share with you! I enjoy making 3D projects and always love to have little table favors for family and friends for holidays and other special occasions. I made these for my Thanksgiving  table favors this year.

Stampin Up Pillow Boxes and Painted Harvest table favor idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin’ Up! Pillow Boxes are the perfect size for gift cards, small gifts, notes, candy treats, and favors! They are so versatile for year round use! You get 10 boxes for just $5 (which doesn’t break the bank)! Every year I’ve filled table favors with my Blessings Mix (*see recipe below) but I thought I would change it up this year and use an M&M poem I found.  My daughter is a math major and I know she will appreciate one of the verses on this one.
