Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Sale-A-Bration 2022 Catching Butterflies

We have a great blog hop for you this month. For our January Paper Crafting Blog Hop, we have 2 themes. They are Sale-A-Bration and birthdays. I can't wait for you to see all of the fun projects and design styles from this group of talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the globe! Be sure to stop at each of our blogs. You may have arrived from Mickey's blog. Didn't she have a great project!?


Sale-a-brating with Butterflies and Happy Hearts

When I saw the "You make my heart HAPPY" sentiment in the CATCHING BUTTERFLIES Sale-A-Bration FREE level 1 stamp set (with qualifying order), I just knew it would make a perfect pairing with the BOUQUET OF LOVE Hybrid Embossing Folder. This card would make a great friendship Valentine, or a card for any time of the year.


    
This hybrid bundle includes a 3D embossing folder and a fun set of dies. It's super special because the large heart die fits into the embossing folder and cuts out the heart shape at the same time it embosses---brilliant!

For my color choices I used two of the 2021-2023 In Colors: POLISHED PINK and PALE PAPAYA (both ink pads and cardstock) as well as SHIMMERY WHITE cardstock. I used the BOUQUET OF LOVE Hybrid Embossing Folder for the PALE PAPAYA layer and for the POLISHED PINK heart. (The ink color for the "You make my heart HAPPY" sentiment looks to be a darker pink, but it is actually the same color as the cardstock in person). 

I embellished with WHITE GLITTERED ORGANDY RIBBON and IRIDESCENT RHINESTONES BASIC JEWELS. And if you know me, you know how much I love using STAMPIN’ DIMENSIONALS to pop up layers and elements in my project. Take a good look at this closeup view and you will get an idea of which parts I “popped up.” 

NOTE: If you try to order, you will notice that some of the items I used are currently out of stock. These items should be back in stock and orderable in the next few weeks. Or you can just substitute with a similar item and put your own twist on your CASE (Copy and Share Everything) of my project!

    Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Gift Packaging - Scalloped Treat Boxes

    We have a great blog hop for you this month. Our December Paper Crafting Blog Hop theme is Gift Packaging. I can't wait for you to see all of the fun projects and design styles from this group of talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the globe! Be sure to stop at each of our blogs. You may have arrived from Terri's blog. Didn't she have a great project!?

    So Sweet & Scalloped

    Are you like me? Always looking for a quick and easy way to make a gift just a little bit more special? I found an answer in the SCALLOPED KRAFT TREAT BOXES by Stampin' Up!. These sweet little boxes hold much more than you think they will at 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" (8.9 x 8.9 x 6.4 cm). Watch my video below to see exactly how much I was able to fit in one of these boxes---with room to spare! And I love the pretty gold dots that accent the kraft box.


    These boxes are available in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog so you can decorate them for any occasion that you want to give a small gift or treat or gift card. For this one I used the ARTISTICALLY INKED stamp set and die bundle, the EXPRESSIONS IN INK Designer Series Paper (gold stripe) and a 3" x 3" (7.6 x 7.6 cm) card from the KRAFT 6" X 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Paper Pack.
    I also used RED RHINESTONE and CHAMPAGNE RHINESTONE Basic Jewels for the centers of the flowers.

    To see how easy it is to put together these boxes, and how I attached my ribbon for the ARTISTICALLY INKED box and the box I originally made for the holidays, watch my video below.

    For the holiday box shown in the video I used items from the GINGERBREAD & PEPPERMINT Suite of products. All products that I used from this suite---except the KRAFT 6" x 6" (15.2 cm x 15.2 cm)---is on the Last Chance list. Some of the items may no longer be available in your area. (I'm very sad as I loved this suite). Check the Last Chance list via the Stampin' Up! website. And get any remaining items before they are gone!
