Larger Versions of Self-Closing Box

On January 5th I shared a fun box that I had demonstrated earlier in the week in my Facebook Live broadcast. In that broadcast – the video that I also shared on my January 5th post, I presented another version of that box made with a much larger piece of cardstock. So today I wanted to show you that larger self-closing box, another version of one that same size, and the measurements for each.

Here is the box I introduced in my broadcast.

All My Love Self-Closing Box

I’m so excited to share this fun self-closing box idea with you today! I’ve seen these odd-shaped boxes before, but getting one from my friend/fellow demonstrator, Nancy Reynolds as a gift at OnStage this past November gave me that extra motivation to start making them myself. And WOW!! They are easy! Click here to see the box Nancy made for me. (She CASEd it from the lovely Dawn Griffith. Nancy gave me the deep red one!)

All My Love Tri-Panel Cards

We are nearing the end of the 2018 Holiday Catalog and coming up on the January 3rd debut of the 2019 Occasions (Spring) Catalog. So today I want to share with you a peek at some of my favorite upcoming new products from the All My Love Suite by showing you another card we made on December 8th at the Silver Elite Retreat.

I’m calling this my Tri-Panel Card. Three patterns in the beautiful new All My Love Designer Paper are exactly the same but printed with a different color layout. So I used these three patterns to in such a way* where the design flows/connects from one sheet to the next. You can see it really well in this first card.

Click here to see four variations of this tri-panel card. I created them all with three coordinating patterns from the All My Love Designer Paper, sentiment images from the Forever Lovely stamp set, and the flower dies from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies – all new products that will be available in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. You can also find measurements, directions, and a complete list of supplies. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements

  • Crumb Cake Cardstock:
    • 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
  • Early Espresso Cardstock:
    • 4-5/8″ x 3-1/2″
    • Scrap for punching a layer underneath the sentiment
    • Scrap for die-cutting the accents (optional)
  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • 4-5/8″ x 3-1/2″
    • Scrap for stamping and punching the sentiment piece
    • Scrap for die-cutting the accents (optional)
  • All My Love Designer Paper:
    • Three coordinating (and connected) patterns cut to 1-3/8″ x 3-1/4″ each*

*To get the best results preparing the designer paper, stack the 3 coordinating 12×12 patterns on top of each other so they are all lined up in the same direction. Then cut them at the same time to get three matching 4-1/8″ x 3-1/4″ pieces. Cut these all at once again to get 3 separate 1-3/8″ x 3-1/4″ pieces. Then separate all the color layers out but keep the pattern connected and in order. Now mix them up and match them to make connected sets but with sections of three different color layers in each set. As you can probably guess, it’s best to make three cards at a time so you can use up all the sets of patterned paper. (Now that your designer paper is ready, follow the rest of the directions below.)

Directions

  • Adhere the 4-5/8″ x 3-1/2″ Whisper White piece to the inside of the card. Adhere the 4-5/8″ x 3-1/2″ Early Espresso piece to the front of the card.
  • Adhere the set of three designer paper pieces*. Start with the outside pieces first leaving about 1/8″ of Early Espresso showing around the outside from the matting layer. Then adhere the middle piece.
  • Stamp the sentiment onto the Whisper White scrap, then punch. Punch the Early Espresso scrap, then adhere to the underside of the sentiment to layer. Attach this layered piece to the front of the card (using Dimensionals) where it looks best.
  • Die-cut accent pieces with more scraps, adhere around the sentiment, and embellish with Rhinestones and/or Heart Epoxy Droplets.

Here are a few more card layouts. This one below is my favorite.

It’s a fun card to make. In fact I think this card be well received in a class setting as long as the designer paper pieces were all cut and matched up ahead of time. This photo of my mom and Cheryl Lee showing THEIR cards was taken at our Silver Elite Retreat.

Luke’s Valentines Are Ready

A few weeks ago I asked Luke if he wanted to bring Valentines for his classmates for his 5th grade year, the final year of elementary school. He said no. I assumed he wouldn’t want to since his brother is in middle school and had already strongly expressed that he is “too old” to bring them now.

But then the 5th grade class list was sent home last week. Obviously the excitement was being built up by his teacher and peers, because Luke had changed his mind and was in the mood to bring Valentines. Luke told me he wanted to give Smarties candies to everyone. Of course the only bag I could find was at Costco in a $10 mega pack – which I figured out later was fine since I could share the leftovers at my upcoming stamping event in a few weeks.

I worked on these Valentines during the last couple days, and this is how they turned out. Luke didn’t help make them at all this year, but he was “into it” and contributed his opinion for how they should look.

Quick and easy Valentine treats made with Painted With Love designer paper, an image from the Magical Day stamp set, a few punches, vinyl gold stickers from the Painted Love pack, Gold Foil paper, and 2” x 8” Cello Bags.

When out of the bucket, here is what 29 of them look like spread out a bit more.

Well…enthusiasm is contagious, and now my middle schooler, Nick wants to hand out a few Valentines to HIS friends. Thankfully he is good with that same candy. I have enough of it! So he wrote up a list of his friends, we designed how the Valentines will look last night, and he’s going to help me make them during the next couple days. I’ll share them soon.

  • Treats for Valentines: Pixie Sticks, rulers, pencils, mini Hershey bars, Ghirardelli chocolates…

 

*** Sale-a-Bration is the best time to purchase prepaid subscriptions  because you get perks…  
You get a Sale-a-Bration item for every $50 you spend in ADDITION to the savings with the 6 and 12-month prepaids. Many dedicated subscribers purchase their 12-month prepaids at this time of year. And not to worry if your subscription is automatic and you already have a credit card in the system. The code that you will get after purchasing your prepaid (once added into your account) will override your credit card each month for the time frame of your prepaid. Your card won’t get charged during that time period. EVERYONE can take advantage of Paper Pumpkin prepaids! So I encourage you to consider purchasing a prepaid that during Sale-a-Bration.
You can get free Sale-A-Bration items with a 3, 6 or 12-month prepaid. You always save money on the 6 and 12-month ones, but from January 3 – March 31, you can earn freebies. You just pay the additional $6.95 shipping if there is nothing else you are adding to your prepaid order. So if you get a 12 month prepaid, you’d pay $215 plus tax. And then you’d get 4 SAB items and $21.50 in stampin’ rewards (free items of your choice) for the additional $6.95 shipping. If you added other merchandise to your prepaid order, the shipping costs could change. So if you ordered a 3-month for $59 US and then added another $91 in product, then you’d pay $59 + tax and $91 + $9.10 s/h + tax and you’d get 3 SAB items because you have $150 in merchandise, AND you’d get $15 in free merchandise. If you only purchased a $59 3-month prepaid, you’d get to choose one SAB item and pay the additional $6.95 shipping. Every order in the US has a minimum $6.95 shipping if there is product other than the Paper Pumpkin prepaids included in it.
And if you are purchasing the 12-month, I would recommend bumping the order to $250. Then you would get an extra $25 free so a total $50 free plus 5 Sale-A-Bration items!

Painted With Love Merci Chocolate Candy Wraps (with video)

Need an easy yet elegant Valentine treat idea? How about these pretty Merci chocolate candy wraps?

I shared this candy wrap idea here on my blog back in December (click here for the written step-by-step directions). But one of my blog viewers requested that I share the process of putting these together with a video. So this time I used a fun new set of designer papers – Painted With Love from our 2018 Occasions catalog.

Click here for measurements AND to watch my quick video to see how I made these Merci Chocolate Candy Wraps featuring the beautiful new Painted with Love Specialty Designer Paper in the 2018 Occasions Catalog...#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Then I recorded this Facebook Live how-to video this past Wednesday and uploaded it to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video, check out the measurements below so that you can recreate these fun candy wraps, and then let me know if you have any questions. If you ARE on Facebook, I invite you to “like” then “follow” my page so you can get updates when I share and when I go live every Wednesday afternoon at 2 PM Central Time.

These are really quite quick and easy to put together. Here are the measurements:

  • Painted With Love Specialty Designer Paper: 3″ x 6″
  • Coordinating Cardstock: 1-3/4″ x 5/8″ scored 3/4″ in at each end
  • Coordinating Cardstock: 1″ tall strip
  • Gold 1/8″ Ribbon: about 10-11″

And here are some helpful photos.
