Hey Boo! Cutest Halloween Card & Treat Box

Well, I put it off as long as I could…I had to bring out the Halloween stamp sets I bought last month and get busy with some new projects. I showcased a couple new projects today during my YouTube Live using these stamps sets. These bundles were so popular that they quickly went on backorder – but you can still get the stand alone stamp sets.

I purchased the Cutest Halloween Suite Collection which sadly is on backorder now because it was so popular…but it came with these adorable tomb stone treat boxes that you can decorate and fill with spooky Halloween treats.

Here is the final one that I designed. I took a die from the tasteful labels die set to cut out the window of the front of the box before I assembled it. Added a piece of clear cellophane for the window and secured it to the inside. Then decorate! So easy!

In case you missed me on my weekly live – you can catch the replay here. See you next week!

Paper Pumpkin – Time for Holiday Cards!

It’s hard to believe, but if you are going to make your own holiday cards this year, then it’s probably wise to start planning for it now. I love how Stampin’ Up always has our back with lots of new products for the holiday season. The October paper pumpkin kit is already teasing us with lots of holiday inspiration and seasonal goodness!

The kit for this year’s holiday season just happens to coordinate with the Peaceful Prints designer series paper that you can get RIGHT NOW during Sale-A-Bration. Here is a look at this paper that won’t want to miss out on – especially if you are going to get this kit.

I can’t wait to see what comes in this month’s kit, but here is a preview of what will be coming. Better order now!

  • The kit contains enough elements to create 10 Christmas cards—5 each of 2 designs—and coordinating envelopes. This all-inclusive kit includes printed card bases, die-cut paper pieces, embellishments, adhesive, and more!
  • October’s kit arrives in a cute collectible box covered with enchanting evergreen trees. Use this special, limited-edition box to store your holiday handicrafts, or transform it into a well-wrapped package for a present!
  • The kit’s contents pair perfectly with the Peaceful Place Suite Collection (item 156277). To continue your Christmas crafting, combine the kit’s components with the suite’s patterned paper, shimmery sequins, and more!

Shaded Summer

Hello and welcome to my blog! If this is your first time visiting, WELCOME! And for those return viewers, so happy to have you back. THANKS so much for stopping by again.

For my project this week, I wanted to share the card I made using the Shaded Summer stamp and die set. I paired this up with the Harvest Meadow paper and it turned out SO pretty. I love it.

There is a subtle but elegant touch to this card with the white background. I dry embossed it with the Pretty Flowers embossing folder. I love to add just a bit of extra dimension to my cards with embossing folders. They are so economical too…this one was just $7.50 and is available in our annual catalog.

If you’re interested in re-creating this card – or as we like to say in the biz…”CASE” it. (Case stands for Copy & Share Everything) here are the details and dimensions.

Also – don’t forget to set a reminder for 11am PT tomorrow (Thursday Sept 9th) to watch me create this card live on my YouTube Channel.

Here’s the card recipe!

Happy Fall Y’all!

Hello everyone. My gosh it’s SEPTEMBER already!!! Wow.

Today’s card is another squirrel card…I told you…I am a little obsessed with my squirrel friends and I just couldn’t stop making cards with this set. I think I might be done for now and ready to move on but I wanted to share this one last squirrel card with you.

You will find all the dimensions and products used for this card listed below. I also have a video that walks you through step by step on how to create this card.

Don’t forget – I go LIVE on Facebook every Thursday at 11am PT. So come back on September 9th to see my latest project unfold. Here is the replay from today’s Live sessions. Happy stamping!

Paper Pumpkin – Hope Box

Hello friends. Thanks for coming back to my blog, or if you are new, welcome! I hope you bookmark this page and check back often.

Ok…today I have a bunch of great cards to share with you that I created using the August Paper Pumpkin craft subscription kit called the Hope Box. This was a very colorful and whimsical kit with unique sentiments that offer such great encouraging messages of hope.

I did deviate from the kit card examples by adding a couple of sentiments and other card stock colors that I used to embellish my cards. But…the kit all by itself makes a beautiful set of cards without adding anything more to it.

Here is a quick look at all of the cards I made…and I hope this gives you some inspiration for you own kit! If you’re interested in seeing my video, scroll down to find the YouTube link.

I made a video that walks you through how I made each card…and I hope this helps. Thanks so much for watching!

Oh…one more thing before you run off… If you have not yet subscribed to Paper Pumpkin but would like to, please jump over to this page and check out the current kit details. This one is themed for fall harvest with maybe some Halloween elements as well and it makes a bunch of fun treat boxes. Go check it out!
