Occasions Catalog Kickoff Event

In January I held our Occasions Catalog Kickoff Event using new products from the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Catalogs. Carol’s sample box was filled with Dove Chocolates which fit and matched perfectly with their rose colored foil wrappers. The heart punched in the box front for the window was used inside the matching card.

Stampin’ Up!’s Window Shopping Bundle is Special!

I have fallen in love with Stampin' Up!'s Windoow Shopping Bundle.  It can be used for much, much more than just another box.  If your signed up for my monthly newsletter, then you saw the card and instructions using one of the dies from this bundle. Below is a box I created:

Window  Box Thinlits Dies Jeannine Tarrio Stampin, Up!


INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  First die cut 2 of the window box dies with Mint Macaron cardstock.  Then die cut the design on the box top.
2.  Using the box top as a guide, cut a piece of Island Indigo cardstock to fit inside the cover.
3.  I cut out 6 squares 1 /12" x 1 1/2" each from Blooms and Bliss DSP. Then die cut each square using one of the side dies.
4.  Glue DSP to the box. Note:  if using a directional pattern the side attached to the bottom piece is in the right direction.  For the sides attached to the top piece reverse the pattern, so when attached together all sides will be going in the same direction.
5.  Stamp scrap and die cut for tag.
6.  Trim side flaps off ends of box bottom ONLY.
7.  Assemble box and tie on tag with Baker's Twine or gold cord.  Watch video below for assembley directions.

Enjoy making your own special gift box.

Santa’s Sleigh – Oh, My!

Santa's Sleigh was the first bundle on my list from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday catalog.  I cased this tag directly from page 25 and all I can say is the picture does not due it justice. It is cute in the catalog, however, it is STUNNING when made.

I have so many ideas swirling in my head right now, can't wait to play with this set again. You can purchase this set on September 1st when the Holiday catalog goes live for customers.

Halloween Home and the Boiling Cauldron

Okay, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, after Christmas and Easter.  I remember the days when I was young and we lived in the project and it was beautiful, brand new, clean, large lawns, hills for sledding, and paved parking lots where I learned to ride a bike.  Also a brand new public school.  Across the street was a residential neighborhood with all single family homes.  As Halloween approached, we made our costume out of old clothes, and whatever else we could find, no store bought costumes – did they even have them then?


So, on Halloween we grabbed a pillowcase for a treat bag and off we went, first to the individual homes where they gave out whole chocolate bars, candy apples and popcorn balls.  Then home and empty our haul and back out into the project to receive smaller treats such as bagged penny candy, gum, popcorn and candy corn.  When we got home we could eat several  items and put our pillow cases in the closets, where we could eat some every week. It lasted for 6 months!! So that is why I remember Halloween so fondly, almost everyone participated and put their outside lights on.  We never went to a place without the outside lights on, nor did we think of playing any tricks.  It was all fun. Parents didn't have to worry about their children getting something nasty or dangerous in their treats.  It was not shunned in school, it was celebrated and everyone had an afternoon of playing games, wearing our costumes if we wanted, and sharing treats.

So it is with those thoughts in mind, that I placed my demo pre-order with Halloween sets included. I am going to #bringbackhalloween to remind me of the old days when kids could be kids, we minded our parents, and home was a safe and fun place to be.


Here is my Sweet Home for Halloween with a boiling cauldron inside, yes use your imagination!

Or watch my first video HERE.

I held my phone in one hand while I took the video and hoped it would not be too shaky. Let me know how it was, not enough speaking, lighting?, I tried get the feel of how it looks in a darkened room and in a lighter background so you could see the details. Hope you liked it.

For those who want to know what size the house is, I measure 3 1/2" from bottom to top of peak. Base is 1 1/4" square and slants out to about 1 7/8" square.  Hope this helps.  It really is the perfect size for treats.

Hope you enjoyed today's visit and this post brought back fond memories.

Happy 4th, Mother’s Day – You are totally awesome…

Once you read my post you will understand the title.  I haven't blogged much lately, so I am trying to catch up on my Stamping Up! project/card items.  All my pictures (okay, most of my items) have been photographed before I gave them away . So I will be trying to catch up and all projects will have some details, but not as elaborate as if there were only one project.
First, Happy 4th of July! I created my basket from a Stampin' Up! Whisper White envelope.  It is quick and easy to make.
