Mixed Medallions Gift Box

Hello Friends!  Today I have a fun little gift box idea that was inspired by the Mixed Medallions Card kit. Yep, I said card kit.

The Mixed Medallions Card Kit is one of this year’s Sale-a-bration items that caught my eye right away. The kit comes with 8 trifold cards. There are two different card designs so you get 4 card bases for each design. I am always looking for fun things to do with kits and as soon as I saw the tri-fold design I knew exactly what I wanted to make…a Gift Box.

By adding a few simple score lines and a few cuts to the card bases, you can easily create an adorable little gift box!

The gift box can be used to package up some small items, candy and even your handmade cards. I was excited to learn that the gift box holds 4-5 standard cards (5-1/2 x 4-1/4 inch size) and envelopes. How cool is that? So you can make a few gift boxes and a make a few cards with this kit, package them up and give them away as a gift. Or make all of the cards into gift boxes and use them to package up your own handmade cards.

It’s super fun and simple! Check out the video tutorial for more info >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-EoWZsZChc

 

Saleabrate with Sweet Soiree

Lately I have been drawn to the fun little Memories & More Card packs. These card packs are perfect for scrapbooking and memory keeping types of projects but they are also fabulous for creating cards.  They are super fun and a great way to make a lot of cards in a short period of time. Just look at how beautiful these finished cards are! And they required very little effort.

These projects showcase some of the beautiful images in the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack. This card pack is one of the items you can choose for FREE when you shop during Sale-a-bration. Each card pack comes with 72 double sided cards:  52 cards that measure 3 x 4 inches and 20 cards which are 4 x 6 inches. Only the larger cards require a bit of trimming if you plan to use them on a standard 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 inch greeting card. The 3 x 4 inch cards are perfect for layering together to create some pretty designs on your cards. The most time consuming part of creating these cards is deciding what sentiment to stamp on them.

Here are a few of my favorite cards created with this pack:

Bubbles & Fizz

Sale-A-Bration is in full swing and it’s been so fun to play around with all of these fabulous new products!  Today I want to share a few fun projects created with the Bubble Over Bundle and the fun new Sale-A-Bration paper called Bubbles and Fizz.  This is really an adorable suite of products! It is so versatile! You can create cards for a variety of different occasions so let’s take a look!

Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I decided to make a fun little love themed card for the hubby. The card showcases the new Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items that you can choose! The paper is so adorable and it coordinates with the Bubble Over stamp set and framelits. So that means that I could use the framelits to cut out the bottles (I didn’t have to cut them out but hand).  How cool is that? The framelits work with the designer paper and with the bottle stamps in the set!  To create this card, start with whisper white cardstock for the base of the card.  Cut a 3 x 5-1/2 inch piece of the heart patterned paper from the Bubbles & Fizz DSP pack and a 3-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch piece of Basic Gray cardstock. Adhere the two pieces together and then adhere them to your card front. Add a doily and some of the bottles from the DSP. Then embellish with a little love sentiment a a heart.

This card was also created with the Bubbles & Fizz DSP. For this one, I started with a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock for the base of the card. Then I cut a few different patterns of the DSP to create the background on the card. The Lemon Lime Twist pattern is cut to 3-3/4 x 5 inches and the bottle pattern is cut to 3 x 4-1/2 inches. I embellished the card with one of the bottles and a sentiment cut from the Celebrate You thinlits. These fun thinlits are also a free sale-a-bration item that you can choose with a qualifying order.

I am just having a blast with these new products!  I hope that you enjoyed the little projects I shared with you today!

Inside the Lines ~ Dragonfly Dreams

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  It’s the start of the NEW Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration!  Wahoo!  My favorite time of year!  Today I wanted to share a little project that I created for my new catalog open house!  The project showcases the Dragonfly Dreams bundle of products and the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  I have to admit that I wasn’t really fond of the DSP when I first saw it as I thought “Wow, it will take a long time to color all of those images!” But then I found a really quick and fun way to use that DSP.  Let’s take a closer look.

To make this card, start with a piece of whisper white cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of the flowery pattern from the Inside the Lines DSP. Note: This DSP is FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration!

Grab some sponges and the following ink colors:  Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Mint Macaron. Sponge each of the colors across the DSP as shown. Stamp the dragonfly image on a scrap piece of white cardstock, using blushing bride ink, then cut it out with the coordinating framelit. Cut a detailed dragonfly, using the coordinating framelit, out of a piece of vellum. Adhere the body of the vellum dragonfly to the blushing bride one with a few glue dots. Adhere a delicate white doily to the center of the DSP. Adhere the dragonfly with a few stampin’ dimensionals.  For the finishing touch, add a little sentiment banner and embellish with pearls. Enjoy!

Yippee Skippee

SAB birthdayHere’s a fun little celebration themed project with bright and bold colors.  The project can really be customized for any type of celebration…just switch out the sentiments. Of course there are a variety of fun new products showcased on this card along with a freebie from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  Let’s take a look…

To make this card, start with a piece of so saffron cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of calypso coral and emboss it with the Lucky Stars embossing folder. Cut one 2 x 4 and two 1 x4 inch pieces of your favorite patterned pieces from the new Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack. Secure the pieces to the center of the calypso coral cardstock. Cut a 2 x 3 inch piece of whisper white cardstock and fancy up both ends using the scalloped topper punch. Stamp your favorite sentiments on the tag using night of navy and calypso coral ink. For this project I used the fun little sentiments from the Yippee Skippee stamp set and the free Sale-a-bration stamp set called Big Day. Run a piece of yellow ribbon, a Sale-a-bration freebie, through the tag and around the entire calypso coral piece. Just a little tip…I secured the tag to the cardstock with dimensionals BEFORE trying to tie my little bow. Add a few candy dots to embellish. Enjoy!
