Christmas Gift Bag

Create this perfect Christmas Gift Bag for the holidays this year.  Fill it with your goodies or small gifts and surprise that special someone.  It’s so much fun to create personal gift bags during the holidays.  I love creating personal hand-made packaging in addition to cards and gifts.  It’s a sure sign of joy and gift giving during the holiday season.  My heart is full of love for crafting.  Let them know how much you care.

You can find Santa’s Bags on page 19 of the Holiday Catalog.  They are perfect for crafting.  First of all, this one is decorated using the tree stamp from Timeless Tidings and Garden Green ink (you can also use any dark green ink that you have on hand).  Before stamping the bag, cut a piece of cardstock to insert inside of the bag to prevent ink bleed through and to provide better stamping surface. 

To create the tag, I used the Better Together stamp set in the Annual Catalog and Cherry Cobbler ink for the greeting.  I also used Garden Green ink for the tree.  Stamp off the image onto a different paper and then stamp over the sentiment.  Also, sponge the label edge with the Garden Green.  Finally, use Cherry Cobbler twine from the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine Trio and wrap around the bag drawstring.  The punches that were used are the Everyday Label & 1/8″ handheld. 

All of these products are available in my online store.  I know you will enjoy having this Christmas gift bag option for any last minute gift giving this holiday season.  I always enjoy the faces of everyone that receives my special holiday packaging.

Traditional Holiday Tag

Since Christmas will soon be here, I wanted to share this traditional holiday tag with you.  You can create this Into the Woods Gift Tag to use on a gift bag or wrapped package.  It’s perfect for all your holiday needs and can come together quickly.  I love the fir tree in the Winter Woods stamp set and with the coordinating In The Woods Framelits Dies, it creates a dimensional effect.  You can also get these products in a bundle and save 10%.

First of all, just stamp two trees and use the large tree and smaller tree Dies to cut them out.  With the tip of your Bone Folder, lift the tree boughs on the smaller cut piece and then attach to the larger tree with Mini Dimensionals.  Lastly, add that “little extra” touch, and use the Shimmery White Embossing Paste on the top tree layer boughs.  It’s great to see the effect on the tag.

The tag base is created by cutting two layering ovals using Old Olive and Whisper White cardstocks.  Stamp the greeting using Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin’ pad and add some gems around the base.  Also, add the various ribbons to complete the traditional Christmas look.  I hope these will help you to complete your final packaging and preparations as we close in on Christmas.
You can get all these items from my online store.

Year-End Savings

If you are like me then you are going to be very excited about the year-end savings.  It’s a time to take advantage of some retiring products and a few select ones from the annual catalog.  You can save on a selection of retiring products and surplus items. They will only be WHILE SUPPLIES LAST so make sure to shop my online store early to ensure you get your favorites.

There is also a flyer (which you can download below) for the year-end savings that you can download and keep handy.  This way you know what is on sale during this event.  But remember, all the products are while supplies last.  I know I always carry around my lists so I’m always prepared when I shop away from home.  You can always check my online store for the most updated information.WIth our bundles, remember they only last during the catalog time and when the products are first introduced. After that catalog’s period of time is over, the products might carry over but the bundle pricing does not. If you have any questions about this special year-end savings, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Catch a Snowflake Gable Box

The Stampin’ Up! Catch A Snowflake promotion is coming to an end this Friday, November 30th or while supplies last. This project highlights the Snowfall Thinlits Dies and the Snowflake Trinkets from the promotion.  Along with the dies, the coordinating stamp sets, Snow is Glistening and Happiness Surrounds, provide endless creative uses.

It is enjoyment to embellish gift boxes and bags. When I saw the various dies in the Snowflake Thinlits Dies set, I knew they were perfect for creating an embellishment to use on the Silver Mini Gable Boxes

Silver Mini Gable Box with Snowfall Thinlits Die Embellishment

To create the embellishment, select the largest snowflake die from the set to cut a snowflake from Whisper White cardstock.  This becomes the embellishment base.  Next, choose coordinating dies to cut snowflakes to layer from Night of Navy cardstock and Whisper White cardstock.  Refer to the photo above for a layering suggestion.  The fine-tip glue pen works great to adhere the snowflake pieces to one another.  With a mini glue dot, attach a Snowflake Trinket to the navy & white snowflake.   I recommend using multipurpose liquid adhesive to attach the layered snowflake to the base. 

To complete the embellishment, create a tag by using Night of Navy ink to stamp the “For You” from the Snow is Glistening stamp set. To attach the Snowflake embellishment and tag onto the Silver Mini Gable Box, tie through the box handle using Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine and 1/8″ Sheer Whisper White Ribbon. 

Just a reminder – this promotion ends on Friday, November 30 or while supplies last!  Place your product order here – Snowflake Showcase by Stampin’ Up!

A full list of project materials is listed at the end of the post.

Happy creating!

Snowflakes are Falling

Today’s card, Snowflakes are Falling, is one of the projects from the recent card class.  Products featured are the Snow Is Glistening Stamp Set, Snowfall Thinlits Dies and the White Velvet Paper.  All items are a Limited Time Offer for November or While Supplies Last and the White Velvet Paper supply is already Sold Out!  You’re  going to love this set and another benefit is the versatility if offers.

Snow Is Glistening  Stamp Set and Snowfall Thinlits Dies from Stampin' Up!

Steps to recreate this Snowflakes are Falling card:
  1. Base is a Silver Foil-Edged card.  
  2. Select three sizes of snowflakes and Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Pad to randomly stamp the 5″ x 3-3/4″ Night of Navy cardstock layer.  Allow to dry for a few minutes and attach to the Foil-Edged card base.  You’ll find that the Night of Navy layer fits perfectly to allow the foil to create a frame.  Time Saving Tip:  Use a block size D or larger so you can place all three snowflake stamps on the block for stamp the three sizes randomly at the same time.
  3. For cutting the three different sizes of snowflakes, choose the dies from the Snowfall Thinlits and use Whisper White cardstock.
  4. Stamp sentiment onto strip of 1/2″ x 3″ Whisper White cardstock using Night of Navy Stampin’ Pad and adhere to 3-1/4″ x 3/4″ Silver Foil strip.  Add to card using dimensionals.
  5. Adhere die cut snowflakes to the card using dots of Tombo multipurpose glue and to add additional dimension, just glue around the snowflake centers. 
  6. Finally, complete card by adding Basic Rhinestones to center of each Whisper White snowflake so it enhances the snowflakes.

Because this is a limited time only offer, make sure to place your order before the products are gone.  Remember, the white paper is already sold out.  The Snow is Glistening stamp set and Snowfall thinlits dies will provide you with unlimited winter craft creations.  Also, the coordinating Happiness Surrounds Photopolymer Stamp Set works well with the products for more creative options.

Products Backordered

There are a few products backordered from the Holiday Catalog.  Unfortunately, these products have exceeded Stampin’ Up!’s expectations and supplies. Therefore, there are a large number of backorders. Because backorders will take weeks to fulfill, Stampin’ Up! has made the decision to shut these items off effective immediately.  The orders that are currently backordered will be fulfilled when the new supply arrives.

Consequently, the products cannot be sent from the manufacturer in time for the holidays, so these item numbers will not be reactivated.

147816: Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper
147890: Festive Farmhouse Elements
147811: Santa’s Workshop Enamel Elements

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.  In order to provide you with another holiday option, Stampin’ Up! has an idea.  They will bring back the Dashing Along DSP (item 149903).  This holiday paper is from our promotion last month.  It’s beautiful and a traditional Christmas paper that has a festive feel.  Coordinating colors are Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, and Whisper White.

Although, there is no fulfillment date for the current back order of products.  So, all backorders for Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper, Festive Farmhouse Elements, and Santa’s Workshop Enamel Elements will be filled as soon as they arrive.  You can still order any of the other products from the Holiday catalog.    

Be sure to visit my store and get any other Holiday Catalog products you want.
