Birthday MVP Card

I’ve been enjoying my own personal retreat this week catching up on some scrapbooking. I’ll be missing out on the retreat I usually go on in January since I’ll be going to Disney World as a chaperone on my son, Nick’s Jazz Band Field Trip. Bummer right? hahaha… I’m not sad, but I couldn’t do both. So I’m set up in my craft room with photos all around me trying to get caught up a bit more on my boys albums. I really COULD use a whole month’s retreat, but I think that’s pretty common with us scrapbookers – we never feel caught up.

I bought the For the Win Stamp Set when the 2019-20 Annual Catalog first debuted because Nick loves to play sports. I thought it would be a great stamp set to scrapbook with. So far I’ve used it to make a few team birthday cards, though. I love that the new Come to Gather Designer Paper in the 2019 Holiday Catalog includes a couple sheets that look like lined notebook paper. So I brought the stamp set and this paper together and created this fun card.

I brought the For the Win stamp set and the Come to Gather designer paper together and created this fun birthday card. Click here for directions, measurements, tips, and a list of products I used linked to my online store. Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • Trim around the “HOO” and around the “RAY!” on the white scraps. Then add these words to the black sentiment using Dimensionals.

WORLD CARD SENDING WEEK
Did you take part in World Card Making Day this past weekend? My family was out of town for a wedding. But I made several cards last week and prepared a few customer thank you when I got home on Sunday night.
Stampin’ Up! would now like to assign this week (October 7-12) World Card Sending Week. They have sent out a challenge to our demonstrators to send 50,000 cards during this time—that’s about one per demonstrator, but of course our customers’ cards count too! So report back to me (by the end of the week) to let me know how many cards you’ve mailed this week. I’ll keep a tally, and then I’ll report our amount to Stampin’ Up! (Personally I think we can surpass this goal. I’ve send 30 so far!)

MY ONLINE PAPER CRAFTERS CLUB IS LOOKING FOR NEW MEMBERS
I’m forming a new Paper Crafters club that will begin mid-November (with orders due mid-month for December, January, February, March, April, and May). And we are looking for 4 more to join us. The commitment is to order at least $25 worth of Stampin’ Up! product in each of those 6 months.

Cracker Boxes

Here is a fun treat packaging idea inspired by the English Christmas crackers. These boxes resemble giant candy wrappers but can hold a lot more (depending on the size). I shared how to make these in my Facebook Live broadcast that aired September 24th. And now I’m sharing the photos, directions, measurements, and supplies here today.

The first ones I made with the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper I basically just CASEd from page 31 in the 2019 Holiday Catalog.

Products I used: See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Then I made a few the same size with the See a Silhouette Designer Paper.

Measurements for large cracker box:

  • Designer paper
    • 8-3/4″ x 9″ scored parallel to the long side at 1-3/4″, 3-1/2″, 5-1/4″ and at 7″
  • Ribbon for bows
    • 12-14″ (two pieces – one for each end)

Directions for large cracker box:

  • After scoring paper, fold on creases and connect the two end panels together with two long strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive to form the rectangular prism. (Flatten to connect evenly.)
  • While still flattened, fully insert small ornament punch from the Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack. Line up score line going through the center of the paper with the center of the ornament, and punch. Do this at both ends.
  • Open and flatten on the other crease lines, then repeat the step above.
  • Insert treat or candy.
  • Use Blends marker to color ribbons.
  • Tie ribbons around the punched areas of each end to cinch box shut. (There will be a small gap at each end, but don’t tighten ribbon beyond or you may tear the paper.)
  • Add any other decorations (stamped or punched images) if you wish.
  • Storage area of this box size is about 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ x 4-3/4″.

After making these large ones, I decided to see how I could alter these measurements to work with a 6″ x 6″ piece of designer paper so I could get 4 boxes from one full sheet of 12″ x 12″ rather than just one.

They are smaller of course, but still a good size!

You’ll notice that the ribbon length is shorter for the smaller box, but that’s only because I tied knots instead of bows.

Measurements for small cracker box:

  • Designer paper
    • 6″ x 6″ scored parallel to the long side at 1-3/8″, 2-3/4″, 4-1/8″ and at 5-1/2″
  • Ribbon for knots
    • 5-6″ (two pieces – one for each end)

Directions for small cracker box:

  • After scoring paper, fold on creases and connect the 1/2″ section to the last panel on the other end using a long strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive to form the rectangular prism. (Flatten to connect evenly.)
  • While still flattened, fully insert 1″ Circle Punch. Line up score line going through the center of the paper with the center of the circle, and punch. Do this at both ends.
  • Open and flatten on the other crease lines, then repeat the step above.
  • Insert treat or candy.
  • Use Blends marker to color ribbons.
  • Tie ribbons around the punched areas of each end to cinch box shut. (There will be a small gap at each end, but don’t tighten ribbon beyond or you may tear the paper.)
  • Add any other decorations (stamped or punched images) if you wish.
  • Storage area of this box size is about 1-3/8″ x 1-3/8″ x 2-1/2″.

3-Panel Scenery Z-Fold

I finally started creating with my MOST favorite designer paper in the 2019 Holiday Catalog…Feels Like Frost.

Feels like Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

As I was creating, I came up with a design that shows off the full 6″ span of this pretty paper. The photo images are stunning, and I wanted to use as much of the full design as I could. So I altered a z-fold card. Typically a z-fold this size would be scored at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4″. But I wanted less designer paper on the front panel of the card. This way when the card opens it’s even more of a beautiful surprise seeing the paper expand so much. So I moved the first score line to 1-1/2″ and I’m calling this the 3-Panel Scenery Z-Fold.

After making 24 of these cards (which I’ll be sharing tomorrow on my blog AND which you can see in the video below), I decided to see what other designer papers would work with this fun-fold. I demonstrated those cards this past Wednesday in my Facebook Live Online Paper Crafting class.

I then uploaded the recorded version of my Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products lists below the photos, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos and products lists for the Bird Ballad and Dinoroar cards. And then tomorrow I’ll be sharing photos, measurements and a product list for the original stack of cards I made that are my absolute favorite using the Feels Like Frost Paper. By the way, the Bird Ballad and the Dinoroar Designer Papers are part of the BUY 3, GET 1 FREE promotion going on this month. But hurry, this promotion ends September 30.

Monster Bash Pencil Boxes

I made more pencil boxes for anyone who is looking for a non-candy treat for Halloween.

I made more pencil boxes. This time I made them with products from our Monster Bash Suite. Oh! And that spider?...It’s made with the 1” Circle Punch and the Daisy Punch.

Aren’t these boxes fun? After I shared my Back to School Pencil Boxes on August 26th, I just had to create more. That is one of my “personal issues”…needing to make several versions of the same project or card. 🤪

Below are the instructions.

Measurements for the skinnier box:

  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock
    • 8-3/4″ x 4″ scored parallel to the long side at 3/8″, 1-7/8″, 2-1/4″ and at 1/4″ from the other end AND scored parallel to the short side at 3/8″, 3/4″ and at 3/8″ from the other end (see photo below)
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 7″ x 1-3/8″
    • 7-5/8″ x 1-3/8″ scored at 1″ from each end
  • Monster Bash Designer Paper
    • 1-1/4″ x 6-7/8″ strip

Products I used: See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

School is starting soon! Send them back with a fun and festive box of pencils. I decorated mine with the Dinoroar Designer paper, images from the Royal Peacock and the Make A Difference stamp sets, and some Leaves Trinkets. Click here for directions, measurements, tips, and a list of products I used linked to my online store. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Directions for the skinnier box:

  • Score and cut out tabs from the Terracotta Tile Cardstock as shown. Use a 1/2″ Circle Punch to make the thumb slot.
  • Assemble box using Tear & Tape Adhesive.
  • Adhere the designer paper to the 7″ x 1-3/8″ Basic Black Cardstock. Then add this to the box.
  • For the 7-5/8″ x 1-3/8″ Basic Black Cardstock, cut down the middle of the ends just to the 1″ score lines. Punch small holes at each end – one where the cut and score line intersect and two at the ends of the score lines.

  • Adhere designer paper to the 7″ x 2-3/4″ Basic Black Cardstock.
  • Stamp sentiment the Highland Heather scrap, then die-cut with the Ornate Frames die. Die-cut the Black Foil scrap with the coordinating Ornate Frames die. Layer these two together and add to the box using Black Dimensionals.
  • Punch the 1″ Circle and the Daisy from the remaining Black Foil scraps. Cut the Daisy equally into four sections – two petals (legs) per section. Put SNAIL on the back of the 1″ Circle then attach these pairs of spider legs so there is lots of space where the head and abdomen will be. Add Googly Eyes with Glue Dots. Then add the spider to the box using Black Dimensionals.
  • For the 7-5/8″ x 2-3/4″ Basic Black Cardstock, cut down the middle of the ends just to the 1″ score lines. Cut down the middle of each of those two sections. Punch small holes at each end – three where the cut and score lines intersect and two at the ends of the score lines.
  • Add a rubber band to each end: loop around half of one of the halves of each end, then twist and loop around the other half.
  • Insert pencils. Put pencils into the box and close the box.

By the way if you are on Facebook and you prefer to watch “how-to” videos rather than reading through directions, join my Stamp Your Art Out Exclusive Group on Facebook. Once in the group, click here to have access to a video recording of me making these boxes. It’s a very casual video, so I’m keeping it exclusive to this group. Today at 12:30 PM Central Time I’ll be sharing how to make cracker boxes. Hope you can join in!

Paper Pumpkin September 2019 Bone Appétit – Alternate Ideas

Eek! Just as Stampin’ Up! promised us, the September 2019 Bone Appétit Paper Pumpkin kit DOES give new meaning to the word “handmade.” ☠︎It’s a fun one for Halloween fans and for those who just love skeletons in general.

As many of you know, I LOVE getting these monthly kits! This month’s kit included supplies to put together 20 food-safe treat boxes. And it included the supplies shown below.

The September 2019 Bone Appétit Paper Pumpkin kit. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

But I like to think outside the box…see what else I can come up with, and create alternate cards, scrapbook pages and more. So I added the extra supplies in the product list at the bottom of this post to the above kit supplies and created my alternate projects that I’m sharing with you today:

  • THREE fun fold cards
  • A non-halloween card
  • Wedding favors
  • A “house” Halloween treat box
  • And a tombstone treat box

Watch my video first to get to get measurements, directions, and tips (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog). Scroll down to see close-up photos, access the links that I mentioned in my video, and see a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) that I used to make my creations. Then be sure to visit my blog again soon, because I have many more alternate projects that I’ll be sharing in the coming week or so. 😁

Here are the treat containers that the kit instructs how to make.

Coffin Box Pirate’s Boat

Yesterday I shared how to turn that adorable Coffin Treat Box into a tombstone treat box. Well, did you know that you also can turn this box into a boat!? Yes!! Fun, right? With the help of the little duck image from the Birds of a Feather Stamp Set, I came up with a way to make a super cute pirate’s boat from that coffin.

I demonstrated creating this project from start to finish in my Wednesday, September 11th Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook. I then uploaded the recorded version of my Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products lists below the photos, and then let me know if you have any questions.

Amazing what you can do when you just start playing around with products. Here are the corrected measurements and a few close-up photos. Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements to start the boat…

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock
    • Scrap for stamping and cutting out pirate
    • Scrap for tearing sail to about 3” x 4”
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 2” x 7” – cut down the middle between 1” and 4”, scored down the middle, scored at the bottom in the other direction at 3/4”, then angle cut into a tall triangle
  • Coffin Box (lid)
    • Cut 2-1/4” from the wide section, then score this section down the middle
