The August 2019 The Gift of Fall Pumpkin kit. #onestopbox #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • A Treat Bag with a Window
  • Two Alternate Greeting Cards (plus one that I didn’t design)

Today I have three more projects to inspire your creativity and help you think outside the box.

  • A Circle Card
  • Thanksgiving Day Personalized Dinner Notes
  • and a Shirt Bag

All of these are super easy to make and only require a few extra tools and supplies. Products I used… See below for a complete list of extra products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

CIRCLE CARD

Circle cards are fun fold cards. They are made of circles layered on top of each other and connected with brads so the circles can rotate while the card extends open.

This is a fun one!!! When I saw the banner, I pictured it as a neck tie. And one thing led to another. This is the same technique for making shirt cards (which I just realized I’ve never shared with you… Click here to see my friend Julie’s tutorial). I just applied this technique to the bag.

Directions…

  • Remove the handles and the extra layers of paper inside the bag.

  • Flatten the bag. Measure one inch down from each of the top two corners and then one inch in. Draw a line on each side to connect these two measurements.

  • Adhere tie to the bag front..

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop July 2019: New Holiday Catalog

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Welcome to the August 2019 Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop! Follow along and check out all the other blogs in the hop (click on the names of the participants in the list below my signature) so you can see some fabulous cards and projects created by other demonstrators who also earned the Stampin’ Up!® Greek Isles incentive trip that took place in July.

This month’s hop features new products in the 2019 Holiday Catalog that will debut September 4. Click here to shop online and see all the fun Stampin’ Up! products that are NOW available. And then visit the store on the 4th to see new Holiday Catalog products when they become available.

One item that I believe will be a huge hit is the Christmas Countdown Project Kit. The kit includes a sturdy white box of 25 mini drawers, the decorative pre-cut papers and stickers to add to the white drawer fronts, and a direction pamphlet.

The box measures 11-3/16″ x 11-3/16″ x 2-3/16″. And each drawer measures 2-1/8″ x 2-1/8″ x 2-1/16″.

The Christmas Countdown Stamp Set is available separately and helps to add beautiful images to the drawer fronts. By offering the stamp set separately, those that want to get more than one kit will get just the consumables with each additional kit purchase.

Or you can make a Halloween “pick a drawer” game as I did below. 😃

If you want to make two variations, you only need ONE kit. I have one kit, but I flipped my drawers around. One side of my drawers are decorated per the kit instructions and with the consumables that come with the kit. The other side of my drawers are decorated with Monster Bash Designer Paper, another fun product debuting in the Holiday Catalog.

Here are the details.

Measurements…

  • Monster Bash Designer Paper (books on a shelf sheet)
    • Twenty-five “connected” pieces that measure 1-15/16″ x 1-15/16″
  • Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon
    • 6 feet
  • Whisper White Cardstock
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting warning sign
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 3-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ scored in the middle at 1-3/4″ and folded in half for die-cutting warning sign background
    • 1-3/8″ x 5/8″ scored 3/8″ in at each end as the supporting piece for the sign

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

Directions…

  • Cut five rows of five Monster Bash designer paper pieces and keep them in order after you’ve cut them.
  • Use one of the extra drawer front pieces from the kit (you’ll have 3 extra) as a guide to punch the half-circles in the top of each drawer front. Then adhere them to the drawers using SNAIL.
  • In the largest black spaces between the books in the designer paper images add Googly Eyes with Glue Dots.
  • Stamp the “Open if you Dare” image, then die-cut with the coordinating die.
  • Die-cut the folded 3-1/2″ x 1-3/4″ Basic Black Cardstock with the larger coordinating die making sure that the folded area of the cardstock stays just inside the die.
  • Fold the 1-3/8″ x 5/8″ Basic Black Cardstock into a U-shape, attach this to the die-cut black piece to form a “tent,” then adhere the Whisper White stamped sign with SNAIL.
  • Wrap the ribbon around the box, insert the tent (which I forgot to do before taking my photos), tie a bow, then wind the ends of the ribbon in and around as shown.
  • Finally fill the drawers with a variety of treats, goodies, and scary surprises. Each trick-or-treater can open a drawer if they dare.

Here is a photo of the intended projects from this month’s eclectic kit – 9 cards (3 each of 3 designs).

The July 2019 On My Mind Pumpkin kit. #onestopbox #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I’ve already shared a few other alternate projects using the contents of this kit on yesterday’s post: Three Self-Closing Tube-Shaped Treat Containers, THREE 12×12 Scrapbook Page Layouts!, and Five Greeting Cards. CLICK HERE to check them out for more ideas.

Today I am sharing how to triple the cards in your kit! 😁Yessiree! I took the kit supplies, added a pack of Gold Foil-Edged Cards & Envelopes, 7 Whisper White Medium Envelopes, and two extra ink colors (Old Olive and Night of Navy), and came up with new card designs so you can get 3 times as more from your kit.

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). Then scroll down to see close-up photos, access the links that I mentioned in the video, and see a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) that I used to make my cards.

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

Here are the cards the kits instructs how to make.

And here are close-up photos of the nine alternate cards that I made and shared in my video. Remember to watch the video first to get measurements, tips and directions.

Keep in mind… I “stretched the supplies” from 3 to 9 cards, so my alternates are less layered. But I feel like they still have a very finished appearance. Those gold foil-edged card bases really add a lot.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop June 2019: New Annual Catalog

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Welcome to the June 2019 Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop! Follow along and check out all the other blogs in the hop (click on the names of the participants in the list below my signature) so you can see some fabulous cards and projects created by other demonstrators who also earned the Stampin’ Up!® Greek Isles incentive trip that will take place this July 2019. This month’s hop features new products in the 2019-20 Annual Catalog that debuted June 4. Click here to shop online and see all the fun Stampin’ Up! products that are now available.

I’m giddy because my sister and I leave for this trip in just two weeks!!! I can’t believe this fabulous dream-come-true trip that I earned just sharing what I love is almost here!

This is the swap card I’ll be bringing with me. It’s an arrow fold card.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop June 2019: New 2019-20 Annual Catalog Products! This is my swap card for this trip. It’s an arrow-fold card that I made with the Mosaic Mood Designer paper and the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set. Click here for directions, measurements and supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Since I learned how to make these arrow fold cards last month and adapted the measurements to work with our A2-size envelopes, I’ve already made a few different ones with our new products. Click here to see the one I made with the Magnolia Lane Suite of products. And click here to see the one I made with the Garden Lane Designer Paper and Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set.

I love this sentiment in the Woven Heirlooms stamp set and felt that it went well with this card design. Plus sad to say, but I’m in need of sympathy cards lately.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop June 2019: New 2019-20 Annual Catalog Products! This is my swap card for this trip. It’s an arrow-fold card that I made with the Mosaic Mood Designer paper and the Woven Heirlooms Stamp Set. Click here for directions, measurements and supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It’s a pretty easy card to make as long as you can measure and fold accurately. Here are the details if you would like to give this arrow fold card a try.

Measurements…

  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
    • 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and folded in half
  • Terracotta Tile Cardstock
    • 5” x 4”
  • Mosaic Mood Designer Paper
    • 4-1/2” x 3-3/4”
    • Scrap for fussy-cutting the flowers and leaves
  • Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon
    • About 8″

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

Directions…

  • Mark the bottom front of the folded horizontal Very Vanilla card base at 2-3/4″. Mark each of the sides of the front of the card at 2-1/8″.
  • Connect the 2-3/4″ mark to each of the 2-1/8″ marks with score lines. Connect the 2-3/4″ mark to each of the upper corners with score lines.
  • This card is harder to explain with just written directions, so I encourage you to watch my video that I made for the Magnolia version of this card to catch all the tips and directions for making an arrow fold card.
  • Fold the outer score lines forward. Then fold the inner score lines backward to create the arrow. Use a Bone Folder to make the crease lines crisp. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the folded over sections of the arrow in place.
  • Mark the bottom of the Terracotta Tile Cardstock in the middle at 2-1/2″. Then follow the directions in the video for cutting from this point diagonally to each of the top corners to make three triangular pieces. Adhere these to the front sections of the card base.
  • Mark the bottom of the Mosaic Mood Designer Paper in the middle at 2-1/4″. Cut from this point diagonally to each of the top corners to make three triangular pieces. Adhere these to the Terracotta Tile sections of the card.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the inside of the card.
  • Fussy-cut the flower and leaves and adhere to the front of the card with Dimensionals.
  • Tie the bow and add below the flower with a Glue Dot.

The May 2019 Hugs From Shelli Pumpkin kit. #onestopbox #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I shared a 12×12 scrapbook page layout and how to double the cards in your kit just by adding a pack of Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes on May 21st. And my son, Nick and I shared a couple more cards with this kit yesterday.

Today I have a sweet gift box made from one of the note cards and a gratitude book made from eight pretty kit envelopes.

Both of these are super easy to make and only require a few extra tools and supplies.

GIFT BOX

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

Measurements for the box…

  • Blue note card from the kit
  • Pretty Peacock velvet ribbon from the kit
    • About 10″

Directions…

Position the open blue note card (print side up) horizontally with the solid blue to the right and the printed blue to the left. Then score vertically at 1/2″, 2″, 3-1/2″ (the score line already there), and 5″. Then trim off the last 1/2″ (at the 6-1/2″ mark). Now rotate a quarter turn to the note card is vertical and score 1-1/2″ in from each side. With the floral print up, cut along the bottom three horizonal score line on each side up to the vertical score lines. The cover of the box will be formed by the portion above the last cuts. So reduce the sides by one inch. Then trim from the top down the small vertical score lines just to the the horizonal score line. Angle cut the sides of the two outer tabs.

Bring the bottom sides of the box together and adhere. Then bring the top tabs in to connect to the front flap to create to cover/lid. Do the adhering of the cover/lid with Glue Dots with the box is in a closed position.

Fill with treats. And add a bow.

ANNUAL CATALOG NEWS
Due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer are retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the opportunity to research and explore replacement options. But there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. You will not see these items in the upcoming 2019-20 Annual Catalog that debuts June 4, 2019. Click here for more information.

The New 2019-20 Annual Catalog!! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is being able to order products early. So of course I’ve been having a blast playing around with my new goodies.

The card I’m sharing today is one that I mailed out to a few achieving demonstrators in my group. I’m in love with it! AND…it’s quite simple to make. I used new products from the Bird Ballad Suite: the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards, the Bird Ballad Designer Paper, and the Free As A Bird Stamp Set and coordinating Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop May 2019: 2019-20 Annual Catalog Peeks! This card was made with products from the new Bird Ballad Suite… Laser Cut Cards, Bird Ballad Designer Paper, Free As A Bird Stamp Set, and Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Click here for directions, measurements and supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store. Again many of the products are not available quite yet. Those links will not work until June 4.

Measurements…

  • Very Vanilla Cardstock
    • Scrap for die-cutting 2-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ Stitched Nested Labels piece
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting inside sentiment 1-3/4″ x 7/8″ Stitched Nested Labels piece
    • 3″ x 5/8″ strip for front sentiment piece
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • Scrap for die-cutting 2-3/8″ x 4-5/16″ Stitched Nested Labels piece
  • Bird Ballad Designer Paper
    • Scrap for die-cutting 2-1/16″ x 3-13/16″ Stitched Nested Labels piece
  • Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon (retiring soon)
    • about 7″

Directions…

  • Stamp sentiments onto Very Vanilla pieces. Die-cut the inside sentiment. Trim the end of the outside sentiment strip.
  • After all pieces are die-cut (using the dies listed in the measurements section above), attach the designer paper to the Basic Black layer using SNAIL. Then attach the outside sentiment strip using a Dimensional at the “banner-cut” end and SNAIL at the other end. Trim up off the excess Very Vanilla that extends beyond the layered Nested Labels.
  • Add SNAIL Adhesive to the back of the large Very Vanilla 2-5/8″ x 4-7/8″ Stitched Nested Labels piece keeping the adhesive at least 1/4″ away from the outside edges. Open up the card and attach this piece so it is centered and straight. (Do not worry about the adhesive showing through on the front side. It will be covered by the front layered piece.)
  • Attach the layered piece to the front of the laser-cut card using more SNAIL.
  • Tie then add the bow to the front with a Glue Dot.
