I know some of you are focusing on Christmas but sometimes we need a distraction from all the hustle and bustle. Take a minute to see what’s on sale.

Last week I posted a teaser photo of a project being made for my recent Open House. As promised, I am sharing the outcome of the stamping and cutting! Being made were embellishments to attach to the new Kraft Pillow Boxes found in the recently released Stampin’ Up! catalog and I used one of my favorite new stamp sets, Animal Outing, to create the tag. It was fun stamping and coloring the giraffe with the Stampin’ Blends. In just thirty minutes, I had stamped and colored twenty-five tags.
Giraffe “Thank You Big Time” Kraft Pillow Box
The Kraft Pillow Boxes are the perfect size for holding a variety of treats. I added an individual size package of nut mix to each so there’s plenty of room for treats. I know you would like details on making tags for your Kraft Pillow Boxes so I’ve added a list of the project materials used and instructions below:
Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the giraffe onto the Whisper White Cardstock and color using the Stampin’ Blends. Cut using the 2 ½” circle punch.
Cut the Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock using the scalloped circle thinlit (the 2nd largest) and punch two sets of leaves from the Shaded Spruce Cardstock.
Assemble the Kraft Pillow Box.
Cut a 6” strip of Burlap Ribbon and using paper snips, cut between each of the strands approximately 2” on each end. Separate the strands. Attach to top of box with adhesive.
Using desired adhesive, attach leaves to the back of the stamped giraffe circle and layer onto the Lemon Lime Twist scalloped circle.
Attach assembled tag to the pillow box overlapping the burlap strip.
You can find all the products to make the the treat holders by clicking on the Shop Now tab.
Thanks for stopping by and have fun creating tags for your Kraft Pillow Boxes!
If you have not had the opportunity to look closely through the Occasions Catalog, be sure to set aside enough time to check out each page. You’ll find all sorts of hidden gems! One is the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). You can see snippets of the paper on pages 10-13 but you must really each of the pages to appreciate the beauty of the paper. I love that there is silver foil one of the sides of each page which makes any project look elegant. The Thank You card below highlights the Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP and though simple, it is still elegant.
Thanks for stopping by!

As promised in my last post, I am sharing the card designed using the Brusho Crystal Color applied to the stamped image from the Petal Palette stamp set. The color was applied using an aqua painter. Brilliant Red was used to color the flower and the leaves were first colored with Moss Green but I desired a brighter green color so mixed some of the Prussian Blue and Yellow Brusho to achieve a bluish green and applied it over the Moss Green layer. Which leaf color do you prefer?
