bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Sale-a-bration 2019 products. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to spotlight buzzing butterflies using the Botanical Butterfly Sale-a-bration 2019 designer series paper and coordinating Butterfly Duet punch. The “a little note” sentiment is part of the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

Paper Crafting Packaging Blog Hop

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring gift packaging. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from the United Kingdom and Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The leftover custom designer series paper I created for this blog post was still on my table when I started to gather supplies for my project. So I grabbed by scoring tool and an acetate box to quickly create a custom belly band. The whisper white cardstock measures 4.5×11 inches with scoring at 4 1/2, 5 1/8, 9 5/8 and 10 1/4 inches as marked on the photo below. Use a strip of tear and tape to secure the band after wrapping around the acetate box.

The paper and ribbon belly band are not secured to the acetate box so the box can be reused for a different occasion. Use our epoxy dew drops and clear faceted gems generously since this box is intended to be hand delivered. The white flax ribbon is a new spring catalog product.

Happy Birthday Aunt Dollie!

My Mom’s sister celebrated 80 years of good living with a surprise party at her favorite neice’s house. Aunt Dollie likes to color images for focal points on her greeting cards. Since I have stacks of stamp sets, I decided to stamp 80 images that she can color to her hearts content.

There are 2 of each image stamped with Memento ink pad, a mix of retired and current images. If she does not like the color combination she picked for the first image, she can change up the colors for the second image.

I used a card exchange card and color coordinated with a Paper Pumpkin box to gift the images in. A simple and complete package that was quick to assemble.

Grapefruit Grove Tiny Treat Box

Yesterday I participated in a New In Colors blog hop. I created this tiny treat box during the design session for the blog hop. Then decided it was too many photos to share on the hop. So today I am sharing the how to photos for the tiny treat box.

The top of the box has a grapefruit grove butterfly cut using the Springtime Impressions thinlet. The butterfly needed a resting place. So a 1 1/2 inch circle punched whisper white circle was attached to the box using a dimensional. Our new Faceted Dots in 3 sizes create a 3-D body.

The polka dot tulle ribbon was attached with tear n tape to the grapefruit grove belly band.

Create a 1 x 8 1/2 inch belly band by scoring it for easy wrap around.

Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project for You Are My Anchor

I’ll be a hop stop tomorrow for an alternate Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop featuring the April kit, You Are My Anchor. Today, I am sharing a project I designed in a few minutes with the help of this kit. The gift note makes a perfect gift bag tie on with enough space inside to write a personal message.

The gusseted cello bag is a roomy 6×17 inch bag that can contain a nice array of goodies. I designed this bag with the intent that this could be a bon voyage bag for a trip across the state, country or day outing too. The glare from the cello makes this photo out of focus but wanted to share the ruler scale for perspective.
