As with many of our catalogs, the Occasions catalog has it’s share of project kits from Stampin’ Up!. The Made to Bloom Kit makes it possible for you to bloom all year long. In the kit, you will also receive pre-printed elements which allows you to add beautiful color to your cards. The kit also contains a stamp set, accents, stamp pad, stamp block, adhesive backed pearls, card bases and envelopes. Once you complete all the cards, you can store them in the acetate box included or, give them away as a gift.
I love being able to have a box of cards for any occasion. Stampin’ Up! adds new project kits to every catalog each year. When you are new to stamping or have limited time to craft, these kits are a life saver. Being able to have all the products in one box saves time and helps you improve your crafting skills.

Happy Friday! This week I am sharing another of the recent class projects, a First Frost Baker’s Box. The Baker’s Boxes are a great size for adding a treats or other small gifts. One of my favorite embellishments for boxes is to make a belly band and add embellishments so naturally, I decided to use one for this project. For embellishment, the First Frost Bundle coordinates beautifully with the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP).
To decorate the Baker’s Box, cut a 1-3/4″ wide strip of Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create the belly band. Since the DSP will not fit completely around the box, cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock using the large Layering Ovals Framelit to connect the DSP and to act as a base for the embellishments.
The stamped floral uses the Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Markers to color the stamp, then “huff” by blowing your breath over the inked stamp to keep the ink moist and stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock. Cut using the Floral Bouquet Framelits. Also use the Framelits to cut Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Vellum images. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock using the large oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Stamp “enjoy” (from the Takeout Treats Stamp Set) using Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin’ Pad on the right side of the oval. Attach to the Blackberry Bliss oval on the baker’s box belly band. Layer the cut embellishments onto the left side of the oval. Finish by adding a doubled Linen Thread bow and scattering Basic Rhinestone Jewels around the paper.
When I received my order with the Eastern Medallions Thinlits a few months ago, I knew they would be perfect to use with the Window Box Thinlits so I came up with a design that was used in a recent class. What is great is that you can create a variety of looks on the top and/or sides of the window box just by varying which thinlits you select and how much you layer the various thinlits to create a design. After selecting the pieces and cutting the top portion of the window box, a circle was cut using the Layering Circles Framelits and adhered to the inside of the box lid to help showcase the medallion.
Gift Box using Stampin’ Up! Window Box Thinlits & Eastern Medallion Thinlits
The window box is the perfect size when you want to give a small gift or treat. If adding treats that are not prepackaged, I recommend using the food safe Cellophane bags.
Thanks for stopping by and check back soon for more project ideas!
