Three Days Away

Happy soon-to-be-Halloween! My boys have their costumes, they’ve planned with whom they will go trick-or-treating (Nick says this is his last year so he has four friends joining him), the house is decorated, and there is a lot of candy in the house (that I keep having to replenish for some reason). The boys carved their pumpkins, too. This year, Luke (my scary movie fan) did NOT make a scary pumpkin. He made his pumpkin into a little house with windows and a door. He plans to put a rock path up to it and decorate it up a little more.

And this weekend we attended the Anoka Halloween Grand Day Parade which we’ve done pretty much every year since my boys were babies. Nick was in the marching band for the Anoka Middle School for the Arts, and like last year played the quads (a set of drums) while he marched. (proud mama here!)

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Do you need some last-minute creative Halloween treat ideas. Designer paper and a simple stamped image can be your friend. These two items can decorate your sweet treats quickly.

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

This first one is a Ghirardelli chocolate wrapped with a 4-1/2″ x 1-5/8″ strip of See A Silhouette Designer Paper. I stamped, die-cut, colored, and adhered this vampire image from the Spooktacular Bash Stamp Set.

Three quick ideas made with the Monster Bash Suite of Products: a thank you card, a Halloween RX Bar wrap, and a Halloween Ghirardelli wrap. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

My second one is a cardstock wrap on a slightly larger treat – a Chocolate Sea Salt RXBar. The cardstock measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and is scored parallel to the short edge at 1-1/4″, 1-5/8″, 3-7/8″, and 4-1/4″. It’s decorated with a 4″ x 2″ piece of Monster Bash Designer Paper. I then added a stamped, die-cut, and colored mummy image on the front and a stamped and die-cut sentiment on the back – both from the Spooktacular Bash Stamp Set.

Three quick ideas made with the Monster Bash Suite of Products: a thank you card, a Halloween RX Bar wrap, and a Halloween Ghirardelli wrap. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I recommend using Tear & Tape Adhesive to secure the cardstock or designer paper wrapped around the treat.

After Halloween is over, don’t put away the Ornate Frames Dies and Monster Bash Designer Paper. This simple thank you card with a sentiment from the Magnolia Blooms Stamp Set can be given at any time of year. I added a 4″ strip of Black Scalloped Edge Ribbon peeking out from under the right edge of my 4″ x 2″ strip of Monster Bash Designer Paper and added them to Whisper White Note Card. My swirly frame is cut from a piece of Black Foil Sheet. I don’t see “Halloween” at all when I look at this card.

Turning the Magnolia Lane Cards into Pocket Cards

Some of you may not be aware that Stampin’ Up! has this adorable 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ note card pack available: the Magnolia Lane Small Memories & More Card Pack. It can be found on pages 8 & 9 of the Experience Creativity Brochure or by clicking here to see it in the Online Store.

The Magnolia Lane Small Memories & More Card Pack. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Instead of just making sweet and simple note cards though (which look great!), I had to put my creative twist on them. I came up with this alternate card idea. I kept the base card unfolded and cut to to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, layered it with designer paper from the Magnolia Lane pack, put the envelope on top of that as a pocket, and then decorated around flap of the envelope to make it the focal point layer on the card.

The Magnolia Lane Small Memories & More Card Pack can be converted into some fun pocket cards with a little added cardstock and Magnolia Lane designer paper. Click here to see two cards I created AND get the measurements, directions and links to the products I used. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

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

Measurements…

  • Whisper White Base Card cut into two pieces
    • 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”
    • 4-1/4″ x 1″
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 4-3/8″ x 3-3/8″
    • 4-1/4″ x 3-1/4″
  • Magnolia Lane Designer Paper (or Magnolia Lane Designer Bulk Paper)
    • 4” x 5-1/4″ with a 2-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ piece cut from the middle

Directions...

  • Cut the 1″ strip off a base card from the Magnolia Lane Small Memories & More Card Pack.
  • Cut the middle from the designer paper piece by cutting just 3/4″ inside from the bottom and the top and 1″ from each side. Layer the larger “frame” piece onto the 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ Whisper White piece using SNAIL.
  • The smaller designer paper piece will pair up with the 4-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ Basic Black, and the Memories & More card will pair up with the 4-3/8″ x 3-3/8″ Basic Black. But don’t adhere these yet.

  • Add adhesive to the outside closed flap of the envelope, and attach the 4-3/8″ x 3-3/8″ Basic Black to the top of the closed envelope so it’s centered.

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

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

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″.

World Card Making Day is this Saturday, October 5th. This is a special day of the year to celebrate and create. Stampin’ Up! would love for our paper crafters to be a part of this special celebration by then making the following week (October 7-12) World Card Sending Week. They have sent out a challenge to our demonstrators to send 50,000 cards that week—that’s about one per demonstrator, but of course our customers’ cards count too! So report back to me to let me know when you’ve mailed out a hand-crafted card during that week. I’ll keep a tally, and then I’ll report our amount sent to Stampin’ Up! (Personally I think we can surpass this goal.)

Make and send handmade cards! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com #stampyourartout #stampinup

The commitment is to order at least $25 worth of Stampin’ Up! product in each of those 6 months.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

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!
