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!

I hope you enjoyed my “homemade holiday” showcase.  If you have any questions about any of the projects feel free to email me or leave a comment below.  I’m looking forward to a new year of creating fun cards and projects!

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.

Takeout Treats For Any Occasion

I love to make 3D Projects and these treat boxes are quick & easy to make and just stinkin’ adorable! I used the Takeout Treats Thinlits (and the leaf from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits) for a simple fall/Thanksgiving treat. I made these for card club yesterday in less than an hour before the event!

Stampin Up This Little Piggy and Paper Pumpkin Frights & Delights alternative birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp www.juststampin.com

This card reminds me of one of my favorite childhood books/movies, Charlotte’s Web. I saw this idea by Lisa Fast on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook page. I knew this would be the perfect birthday card for my pig loving friend, Susan Itell. Lisa didn’t give any directions so I played around, changed it up a bit, and added the cute spider trinket from the Toil & Trouble Suite in the Holiday Catalog. Here’s the card details:

  • Line the opening of the treat bag at 4 1/2 and cut off the seam on the bottom.
  • Cut a 3 3/4 x 4 1/2 piece of whisper white cardstock and stamp sentiment. Slide the cardstock into the bag sleeve.  It fits snuggly.
  • Adhere the sleeve to a piece of 4 x 4 3/4 Black cardstock.
  • Adhere the black layer to a Blushing Bride card base cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Stamp the pig on Shimmery White cardstock and color with ink and an Aqua Painter.  Trim around the pig with Paper Snips and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add Baker’s Twine from the Paper Pumpkin kit around the top of the card and tie a bow. Attach the spider trinket with silver thread and a glue dot.

As Charlotte would say, “Teriffic!”

Here’s a few ideas from Pinterest and Facebook I shared at my Paper Pumpkin get together using the Back in Plaid kit. You can emboss the stocking (iron first and spray with hair spray), make baby booties (roll the cuff) or a winter cap (cut the heel off and add a candy treat inside).

Last year I filled the stockings with gift cards for friends and family.  It makes a quick & easy gift presentation.  I bought extra kits to use the stockings for table favors for our Christmas Eve dinner this year. I’m going to fill them with candy and questions.  It’s fun to have everyone go around the table and read their question and answer.  It really sparks some entertaining conversation!

Kindness Rocks!

I love the beach!  We had a wonderful family vacation combing the beach, eating seafood, and just relaxing and chatting away as the waves crashed along the shore. (I think that was the best therapy for me!!!) As we walked along the beach path there was this “rock garden”.  It just made me smile as I read the weathered board and looked at all the different painted rocks.img_5208

How simple yet powerful! It hit me that this is something I could do with my students!  I go back to the doctor this week and I’m hoping to be cleared to go back to school. I would love to involve my Pre-K students in painting rocks and making a special Kindness Garden at school.  I teach my little ones that they can make a difference (even at 4 years old) and we role play ways to show kindness.  This would be something they could be involved in as well as the school community. I can just imagine the kids on their way home from school or church choosing a rock or adding one of their own to share. I’m excited!

The sentiment on my card today says it all.  A little kindness, whether it’s a card, a smile, or a painted rock can brighten someone’s day. I hope you are inspired to spread a little kindness today.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Thank you card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This simple card layout is one that would work with whatever Designer Series Paper and sentiments you have. I used the Abstract Impressions Stamp set with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circles Framelits. The ribbon is wrapped around the DSP layer and tied with Linen Thread. The DSP is from the retired Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack.

I have another project to share with you that ties in with today’s theme.

Stampin Up Darling Label Punch Box treat holder- Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I bought some Chocolate “Rocks” at a gift shop and knew I could use them to make little gifts for my team members. The sentiment is just perfect!

The stamp set and punch are from the Darling Label Punch Box.  It includes a beautiful tin filled with crafting must-haves…a versatile 6-piece photopolymer stamp set, clear stamp block, 2 ink spots, and a matching punch.

I hope you enjoyed today’s projects. I would love to hear from you!  Leave a comment sharing an act of kindness…either something you did or something someone did for you. I will pick a random winner to receive some blog candy! I am blessed with many wonderful people in my life.  I strive to pay forward the kindness shown to me. An act of kindness that will forever stand out in my mind was a beautiful handmade prayer shawl I received in the mail after my dear friend, Sister Corda, passed away. It was from someone I had never met that reads my blog.  I was so touched and comforted by her gift and thoughtfulness. I can’t thank her enough! I had the pleasure of meeting Nancy in April and she is truly a wonderful and special person!

Have a great day!

April Paper Pumpkin…You Are My Anchor

I love the beach and all things nautical so you can see why this month’s Paper Pumpkin is one of my all time favorites! Check out this video showcasing this month’s kit!

Most of the time I use the contents of the kits and make my own cards but this month I could have easily followed the directions and made them exactly as shown in the kit and been thrilled with the result. The kit includes supplies for 20 cards and 4 boxes! I love the 3 x 3 note cards and gift boxes and I thought about keeping a set for me and giving the other 3 sets as gifts. The 3 x 3 cards are great for gift enclosures and/or notes to tuck in lunchboxes and briefcases; however, I decided to play around and turn some of them in to cards I could send in the mail.  I love the stamps and the dies included in this kit! I recommend Paper Pumpkin subscribers purchase the note cards & envelopes so they can continue to use the stamps sets and ink included in their kits to make more cards. They are a great deal for 20 cards and envelopes! Each month I send my Paper Pumpkin subscribers exclusive alternative projects ideas using the products in their kits.   I know there are others like me that may not want to make multiples of the same card. I like to change it up a little. Here is an adorable matchbook treat holder I made using just the supplies in the kit. Perfect for a lifesaver candy!

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin You Are My Anchor Matchbook Treat Holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are not only fun, they are quick & easy to make!

I cut 1″ off the 3 x 3 note card so it measured 2 x 6.  Then I turned and cut 3/8″ off one end so it measured 2 x 5 5/8. I lined it up on the score board so the 3″ score lined up at the 3″ mark and then I scored it at 1/2 and 3 1/4.

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin You Are My Anchor Matchbook Treat Holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Fold the score lines and staple an individually wrapped lifesaver under the 1/2″ flap. Stamp the sentiment above in Island Indigo Ink and tuck in the top flap.  I followed the directions in the kit to decorate and adhere the life preserver using glue dots, twine, and mini stampin’ dimensionals. Adhere to the front and that’s all there is to it!

These little treats are great to have on hand to give out as you go through the drive thru to pick up your morning coffee or give to friends, hairdressers, “helpers” throughout the day, etc.

I is for Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m sharing a bundle from the Occasions catalog that includes the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. I love punches and this adorable punch pack coordinates with the Fruit Basket Stamp Set. Here’s a look at the bundle.

Stampin Up Fruit Basket Bundle - For inspirational ideas and ordering visit my blog, www.juststampin.com -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love fresh fruit!  We have several orchards nearby where you can pick your own apples in the fall as well as blueberries and strawberries in the spring. We also have a Peach Festival and other “fruit” events in the area so I knew I would get a lot of use out of this bundle. I found some smoothie mixes at the grocery store the other day and picked up a few for my my family and to give as little gifts. I made some fun “envelope cards” to hold the smoothie mixes.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle card ideas to hold treats - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s so easy to make any size envelope using the Envelope Punch Board!  All the directions are right on the board (for 66 different sizes) so you never have to worry about what size paper you need or where to punch and score. I started by measuring my smoothie mix package which measured 4 1/2 x 6.  I checked the EPB (Envelope Punch Board) to see what size paper I needed (8 1/2 x 8 1/2) and where to start to punch & score (3 3/4).

After I punched and scored all sides I was ready to embellish. The Tutti-frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper was perfect to go with my fruit smoothies. It is so easy to pick my cardstock colors from the DSP. I adhered my DSP to a layer of cardstock then popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the front of the envelope card. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Ovals Framelits for the sentiment layers. I stamped the sentiment close to the bottom to leave room for my ribbon in the middle.  I stamped the fruit twice, once in each color, then punched them out with the Itty Bitty Fruit Punches. I wanted the add the leaf layer on top with a Glue Dot to give it a little dimension. I wrapped the ribbon around the envelope and tied a bow.  The ribbon keeps the envelope closed and just slides off to open. I added a stamped layer on the inside which is a hidden surprise under the smoothie mix.

This is a fun card to make even if you don’t have a drink mix to add.  I stamped and cut the sentiment “treat yourself” from the Picture Perfect Birthday set and attached that to the drink mix for an added touch.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle birthday card idea with a special treat - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My son has a birthday soon and he loves fresh pineapples. The smoothie mix calls for fresh fruit, water, and ice so I thought I would include a pineapple to go with it.  The tag was attached to the pineapple so rather than cut it off I made a tag to coordinate and adhered it on top.

I love making little gifts like this! The pineapple and card would be a nice welcome gift for a new neighbor or even a treat for Easter. Simply change the sentiment and you are good to go for any occasion.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle birthday card and tag idea to hold a treat - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My daughter will be home for spring break soon and she loves strawberry smoothies! This little treat will be waiting for her.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle envelope card idea to hold a special treat - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The strawberries were fun to stamp and punch. I used both Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist ink for the stems. I love this gingham ribbon.  It is easy to work with and really makes the card pop! Here’a a photo showing the back of the envelope card.  You can see how the ribbon keeps the envelope closed.

Stampin Up Fruit Basket Bundle card idea with Tutti-frutti designer series paper and the Itty Bitty Punch pack - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This sentiment is perfect for my daughter! This set would also make a great hostess gift, thank you, or just a special treat for a friend or coworker. Who wouldn’t enjoy fresh strawberries and a handmade card?!

I have one more treat to share with you today.  My sister recently moved to Virginia and she is going to visit this weekend.  My family refers to our home as the local Bed & Breakfast. (My husband is a great cook!) I always like to leave little pillow gifts for overnight guests so while I was punching strawberries I made this quick Ghirardelli treat holder for my sister.

You can whip this treat holder in no time at all!  Start with a piece of 4 x 4 designer series paper. Use the Envelope Punch Board to punch and score at 2 inches on each side. Put your candy inside and tie close with ribbon and twine.  I used my circle punches to punch the layers for the sentiment and attached it to the ribbon with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Quick & easy!

I hope you like today’s projects. For more Envelope Punch Board ideas and a video click HERE.  Check out this video showcasing the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and the Fruit Basket Bundle I used in today’s projects.

So which do you prefer: Ghirardelli chocolate, strawberry smoothie, or pineapple smoothie? I would love to hear from you! FYI…I prefer milk chocolate to dark and would rather eat fresh fruit rather than put it in a drink.

R is for Reindeer

Welcome to my ABC Holiday Series! When my kids were little we always sprinkled food for Santa’s reindeer on Christmas Eve. Even though my kids are grown I still make magic reindeer food for my students.  The Seasonal Chums Stamp Set and coordinating Framelits make it quick & easy to make these adorable little gifts. I had so much fun coloring them with my Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin Up Seasonal Chums Treat Holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made this free standing holder for the treat tube when Paper Pumpkin had the tubes last year.  I love that Stampin’ Up! brought them back but they will be retiring with the holiday catalog at the end of the month so stock up now!!! You can fill these tubes with so many things…bath salts, candy, money, etc. The holder idea was from Ellen Hutson and I adapted it for my “Magic Reindeer Food”.  It is quick & easy to make! Start with a 3 x 9 1/2 strip of cardstock.  I used 12 x 12 Cherry Cobbler from the Be Merry Cardstock Pack in the annual catalog.  (You can get 4 from a sheet which is great if you are making them for a classroom.) Use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and score along the 9 1/2″ side at 1 1/8, 4 1/4, 6 1/4, 7 1/2, and 8 5/8.

Fold along the score lines.  Next, punch 2 circles from scrap paper using the 3/4″ circle punch.  Adhere these where to the cardstock where you need to punch the holes for the treat tube.  (See photo below.) *When punching the hole on the right side you will need to fold the end under and punch through both layers because the punch will not reach far enough.  Here’s some photos to show you.

 The part on the end will get tucked under when you adhere the holder.  Apply adhesive on the back of the end piece and fold up and under to form the stand.

I added a piece of 2 7/8 x 2 Reindeer DSP from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper.

I love the adorable Seasonal Chums Stamp Set and coordinating Seasonal Tags Framelits. Both the stamp set and dies will carry over after the holiday catalog retires but you will no longer get to save 10% when you purchase the bundle. So if this is something you’ve been thinking about ordering, get it now and save 10%! You can use these for tags, treat toppers, cards, etc.  I know it is something I will use year after year because I love to give little treats! (I haven’t even played with the snowman yet!!!)

I filled my treat tubes with oatmeal and glitter. I colored the reindeer with the new Stampin’ Blends.  I love to color and these markers just glide and do all the work for you! I used Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette, and Cherry Cobbler Blends to color then cut out the reindeer with the matching framelit.  I attached it to the treat tube with a glue dot and I was done! My students are going to love these!!!

A Sweet Chocolate Treat

Stampin Up Year of Cheer Lindt chocolate treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

During our weekend away my friends and I visited the Lindt Chocolate Outlet in Pennsylvania.  I thought I had died and gone to heaven! They had bins and bins with every flavor filling you could imagine.  You could pick and choose to fill a bag with different flavors. My mind was racing …I saw Stampin’ Up! colors everywhere and couldn’t wait to make these adorable mini cracker boxes to color coordinate.

Stampin Up Year of Cheer Lindt chocolate treat holder idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

The Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper was the perfect choice for these gold and copper foiled truffles. These are really quick & easy to make with one of my favorite “must have” tools, the Envelope Punch Board.  Susan has been waiting patiently for me to post the measurements for these so Susan, this is for you!!!!

Start with a piece of 4 1/4 x 6 piece of DSP.  Use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool (another favorite well loved tool!!!!) to score along the 6″ side at 1 3/8, 2 3/4, 4 1/8, 5 1/2.  Turn and score (with the 4 1/4″ side across the top) at 1 3/8.  Fold along the score lines.

Next use the Envelope Punch Board and with the short side across the top, line up the DSP at the 1″ mark and punch. *The 1 3/8 score line should be off to the right. You will fold and punch along each score line at the 1″ mark. *You will be punching through two layers each time except the one on the end which will just be one layer.

Next, cut up on the score lines at the bottom to the 1 3/8 score line.  Cut off the small rectangle along the bottom and apply Tear & tape on the end as shown below. Fold and adhere the sides of the box then fold the bottom flaps and adhere with Multipurpose Liquid.

Fill with a chocolate ball, pinch the top to close, then tie with ribbon. This is a quick & easy treat for table favors, coworkers, or to give out as you go through the drive thru to get your cup of coffee, etc. I had so much fun making these to go with all the different chocolate flavors.
