Blessings of Home in Soft Pastels

The holidays are over and I’m back ready to share lots of project ideas with you!  Today, I’m am sharing the Blessings of Home Bundle from the new Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog.  Additionally, I am using a technique for coloring with the Soft Pastels.  It’s a technique that I saw when the pastels were released and I finally gave it a try.  The stamp with the large floral spray from the Blessings of Home Stamp Set is perfect for the technique.  Below is the card photo is the list of materials and an assembly video.  Also, be sure to check out my To-Go Kit offerings!

Elf Christmas Gift Tag

This cute Elf Christmas Gift Tag uses the Delicate Baubles Dies.  The idea for creating an elf using the dies is from Connie Babbert at www.inkspiredtreasures.com. She has an array of cards using the dies for holiday characters.  When I saw the elf on the card she created, I knew it would make a cute gift tag. Just so you know – the Delicate Baubles Dies are on the Last Chance List and will be retiring soon so don’t hesitate, place your order ASAP.  In the video below I show you how easy and fun it is to create a gift tag using the dies. 

Elf Gift Tag

Materials for the Elf Gift Tag:
  • Delicate Baubles Dies (use arabesque shape)
  • Granny Apple Green Cardstock 3” x 8-1/2”, score & fold at 4-1/4”
  • 3 stripes of 1/8”Real Red cardstock, scrap of Real Red cardstock for collar
  • Gold Foil (scrap)
  • Ornate Frames Dies
  • Basic Black 1/2” x 3-1/4” & 1/2” x 3/4”

“Cute Halloween” Hand Lotion Package

Halloween will be here in a few days so I’m sharing a quick gift idea – a “Cute Halloween” Hand Lotion Package.  It uses the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up! July-Dec Mini Catalog.  This is one of my favorite “go-to” packages for small hand lotions (approx. 1 ounce size).  The packages are very easy and quick to assemble using designer series paper.   Carrying through with the Halloween theme, I’m using the coordinating Cutest Halloween Bundle and the Tailored Tags Dies to create simple tags.  Friends and family members will enjoy these “non-caloric” Halloween treats!!!  

Hand Lotion Package

Below is the project information for the “Cute Halloween” Hand Lotion Package and a video on how to score, cut and assemble the hand lotion package.

Cute Halloween Hand Lotion Package Cutting, Scoring & Assembling:
  • Cute Halloween 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper: cut 4-1/2″ x 6″ 
    • on the 4-1/2″ side, score at 2″ and 4″
    • rotate 90 and score on one 6″ side at 1″ (NOTE: if paper has a vertical design, be sure to score so that pattern will be running vertical and score line is at bottom of the paper.)
    • turn paper again and with the horizontal 1″ score line at the top of the score board and the 1/2″ vertical score line to the right – score at 1″ and 3″ just up to the 1″ horizontal score line (this is demonstrated in the video below)  Alternate Size:  if your hand lotion tube is slightly longer, instead of scoring horizontally at 1″, score at 3/4″ – all other measurements remain the same.
    • Fold & burnish on all score lines.
    • With paper snips, cut along all of the vertical score lines up to the 1″ horizontal score line.  Cut and remove the 1/2″ panel piece below the 1″ horizontal score line. (This will form the bottom of the package.)
    • Fold along the long vertical score lines and insert the top into the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and punch to create top of the box.
    • With a strong adhesive such as Tear & Tape, Seal+ or Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive, create a “tube” by sealing the side of the package. Place the adhesive on the 1/2″ side flap and fold other side to meet – press firmly to seal.
    • Next, form bottom by folding the flaps and sealing with strong adhesive. 
Tags for Hand Lotion Package:
  • Tailored Tags Dies
  • Layering Circles Dies
  • Basic White Cardstock 
  • Cutest Halloween Bundle
  • Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper
  • Memento Black Ink
  • Flirty Flamingo Ink
  • Cute Stars Adhesive-Backed Sequins
  • Basic Black Cardstock (scrap for cutting circle)
  • Highland Heather (scrap for cutting circle)
  • Ribbons to coordinate

Diaper Fold Halloween Treat Holder

Whenever I need a quick and easy treat holder, I like to create a diaper fold treat holder.  It’s the perfect size for holding a small treat.  Best of all, multiples can be created quickly.  Even though we no longer have visits from treat or treaters, I like to give small treats to family and friends.  So, I am am making some diaper fold Halloween Treat Holders using the Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper and the Cutest Halloween Bundle.  Since the designer series paper pack is 6″ x 6″, there is no cutting necessary making the project even easier!  Add a Halloween sentiment, some embellishment, then fill with a treat and it’s done: easy-peasy!  I demonstrate how to make the diaper fold Halloween Treat Holder in the assembly video below.

Diaper Fold Halloween Treat

Materials for the Diaper Fold Halloween Treat Holders: 
  • Cute Halloween Designer Series Paper Pack
  • Cutest Halloween Bundle
  • Basic White Cardstock (good time to use your scraps!)
  • Basic Black cardstock or other color cardstock to coordinate
  • Layering Circles Dies
  • Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (or other coordinating ink color)
