Stampin’Up! Super Quick Treat bags

Stampin’Up! Super Quick Treat bags

I love my daughters classmates and have a great time planning absolutely amazing things in my head, then reality sets in and I remember that they are about 8 years old and much more interested in whats in the treat bag than how it’s decorated…lol… so I reign myself in a bit and save my elaborate creations for an ending that will be a bit more cherished.  I can’t resist doing something fun though, so I keep it VERY simple and cute, and Stampin’Up! makes that so easy to do! 

Stampin'Up! Super Quick Treat bags

Here I just used the treat bags from holiday mini, the Snow Festival DSP (126908), The Ornament Punch (119847),  the Pool Party Bakers Twine (125574), and the Petite Pairs Stamp Set (wood mount 122495, clear mount 122497) popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and using Marina Mist Ink (126962)

Stampin’Up! Christmas Matchbook Album

Stampin’Up! Christmas Matchbook Album

I attended a friends stamp camp recently and made the cutest matchbook album.  The finished dimensions are 4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″. Although we made this in our monthly club I wanted the opportunity to share with those who didn’t create one. It’s such a fun and easy project that you can add photos, journaling memories, or recipes inside to really personalize…

Stampin'Up! Christmas Matchbook Album

To make the outside cover

score a piece of Cherry cobbler cardstock (4 1/4 x 12 ) along the 12″ side at 4 3/8″, 4 5/8″, 9 7/8″, 10″ and 11″. Fold 1″ 2 times to create the bottom of matchbook.  Fold and tuck in front piece.  Adhere snow Festival Designer Series Paper (DSP) (4″x4″) to front of matchbook. Tie a firm knot with primrose petals ribbon over bottom fold This will hold the top flap closed when tucked inside. Stamp Merry with Tiny Tags, punch with jewelry tag punch, attach to ribbon with mini safety pin from vintage trinkets (118764)

6a017616fca8e0970c017ee5ea2504970d

Adhere Gumball Green Cardstock (3 3/8″x 3 3/8″) to inside flap. Adhere snow festival DSP (3″ square) on gumball green square. 

Now for the inside cards:

6a017616fca8e0970c017c344675fb970b

Attach strips of Snow Festival DSP (1″x 5″) to Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, and Primrose Petals cardstock (4’x 5″ each).  Two on the left side, 2 on the right side to even out the thickness.  Stamp images on Shimmery White Cardstock and use the bigshot to cut using the framelit dies.  Use the Mitten Punch for the mitten!   The stamp sets, inks, paper, framelits, etc.. are listed below…

6a017616fca8e0970c017ee5ea3332970d

Be creative with your stamps and bakers twine, there’s not a right place to put them.  Have fun, pop them up with dimensionals, etc…  These are pics of mine, and I was a rebel and didn’t follow my exact instructions. Express yourself, make it yours!!

Stampin’Up! Ornament Keepsake Vases cards

Stampin’Up! Ornament Keepsake Vases cards

Playing with stamps is incredibly fun, and it’s cool to discover new ways to use them…it extends the life of your stamps like being able to use the Christmas ones year round,  and adds variety to our stamping supplies.  Here are some fun ways to use the Ornament Keepsakes stampset as vases…bonus:  does anyone remember the holiday ornaments we turned on their side and made into kissing fishes?

Stampin'Up! Ornament Keepsake Vases cards

I love the rich colors of the International Bazaar DS paper (126920)

6a017616fca8e0970c017d3e410953970c

This is another card created with  the Ornament Keepsakes Vases grouped together. To add some texture and depth to the vases I used versamark and the clear embossing powder for the stamped images then cut them out using the Ornament Framelits and our Big Shot…add a little trimming with paper snips and voila- instant vase!
