Stampin’ Blends Holder

I’m loving my Stampin’ Blends and as my collection has grown I’ve needed to find a better way to hold them. And since I’m a very visual person I wanted to be able to see the colors easily too, rather than them laying in my drawer. Here is what I came up with after checking out my options.

Want to see how I made it? You’ll need just a couple of things: a package of our Acetate Card Boxes, Tear & Tape,  tag board (such as Designer Series Paper backing), and 12×12 Designer Series Paper of your choice

I will say I have a couple of things I would do differently. I used the white tag board from our Designer Series Paper. I found this was not stiff enough and would use our Glimmer Paper or Specialty Designer Series Paper backing the next time to give it more support. I would also add card stock strips to each layer so that see the color and so I know where to place my markers when I’m finished. (Since each shelf holds 3 combo sets I’d simply cut the 3 colors for each shelf and add them to the top of the heavy tag board to make them pretty!)

(I’ve given you the measurements I used for this project. Just know if you use the thicker tag board the measurements will change a bit so you’ll want to modify the measurements so that they work for you.)

Or if you make it like mine you could lay it on it’s side so the Blends stacked on each other which would help the sagging since the weight would be on the small edge of the Acetate Card Boxes.

Here is how I made mine:

  1. I cut the one flap end off of each box. I measured the box and cut my board backing. (4 1/2″ x 5 3/4″)

2. I repeated this for the number of boxes I wanted. I did the complete package so I had a bit of room to grow.

3. I added Tear & Tape to the tag board backing and then adhered them to each box.

4. I then assembled the boxes

5. Added Tear and Tape to the back side of the tag board backing and stacked them together

At this point I measured the tower of boxes.

5. Cut the tag board sides, and top and added more Tear and Tape. (7″ x 5 3/4″ for sides and 7″ x 4 1/2″ for back)

6. Cut another piece for the bottom and added it with Tear & Tape

So that now my tower looked like this

7.  I took some clear packing tape and taped the seams together on all the sides. This gave me some stability and finished the edges so they were clean.

8. I started to decorate my tower. (I chose some retired Island Indigo Designer Series Paper since it matches my crafting space and all of my storage items are that color at this point.)

9. I measured the back of the box with enough to wrap around it a bit. Adhered it to the back and sides and then the bottom and top of the tower. Trimmed the corners. Added some more Tear & Tape to the side flaps. ( 12″ x 6 1/4″)

10. And adhered things down.

11. Now that the back was done I could move on to the sides – Because I wanted the fewest seams to show I measured two side panels that would have a bit of over hang and wrap the side and top/bottom completely. (5 3/4″ x 12″ scored 1/2″ on one end)

12. So I added some tear and tape to the top section and started to wrap around my tower

scoring with my fingers as I went.

13. Then added a second piece. Adhering again only on the small flap that would be the bottom of my box.

At this point I could wrap the second piece around to make sure things lined up the way I wanted them too. Making sure that the seams were flat and the edges lined up.

14. Now I added more Tear and Tape along the edges where I wanted it and Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the center areas. Then I carefully adhered each side down starting the the bottom (since I wanted the top seam to look the best.)

15. Then I repeated the process for the top piece – added more adhesive  and began wrapping it.

 

Once everything was the way I wanted I wrapped a ribbon around the tower as a handle so that I could easily lift it to move the tower.

That’s it. I love the fact that this tower can be customized the way you want it – make it as tall or short as you’d like. Even make two 5 box towers and attach them to each other! The options are unlimited.

And a quick tip for you: Number your Stampin’ Blends – I’ve put a number on each cap with my Sharpie so that I can quickly see which ones go together. So for instance my Light & Dark Mango Melody has the number 26 on them. Mine happen to be in the order I got them – but you can number them any way you would like.

Accessories: Acetate Card Boxes (1446258), Tear & Tape (138995), and  Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755)

Blue Mountain Stampers Team Time

Yesterday I shared my special team event project with you and so today I thought I’d share some of the wonderful projects my team brought to share at our October meeting. The share time covered everything from cards to 3ds.

This first little project holds a few mini candy bars and was made using the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (147820) and the Candy Cane Season (147692) and Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp sets (142043) with their coordinating punches.

It’s topped off with our Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched Ribbon (144117) and Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine (147888).  Isn’t it adorable? I love the idea of combining the gingerbread cookie with the candy cane for this quick and easy treat.

And here is a beautiful box that was created with the Seasonal Layers Framelits Dies (143751). One of my favorites since it takes you through all 4 seasons.

And finally some bags and a box made with our Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (146926) and Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper (146338).

And of course we didn’t forget the Cards – This first one was made with the Daisy Delight stamp set (143669).

And this last one using the Accented Blooms stamp set. I just love the fall colors that were used on this card so I’m including the supply list for you below.

Country Home Plastic Frame Post it Note Holder

Yesterday I shared with you a treat tent that I made as a special surprise for my Peak Princess Day. This event is a special one that I hold twice a year to pamper my team and I love that I can do that. So today I thought I’d share the project we made and I remembered to take pictures this time so I can share those too. LOL!

So here is my classroom set up and ready for everyone. We played Bingo, laughed, shared, had some goodies and stamped together.

I’ve got such a great team who inspires me every day! I feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful team.

Here’s the project we made.

It’s a quick and easy project using the Country Home Stamp set and a inexpensive plastic frame. I’ve designed this one to hold a small package of post it notes since I wanted to include the sentiment.

Everyone got to choose their images and colored the images with their choice of Stampin’ Blends.

I love seeing all the different color combinations they did.

And of course what is a party without a little something to nibble on?

I couldn’t resist making some Twinkie Torte when I found some Pumpkin Spice Twinkies on a shopping trip.  It’s a recipe I’ve had since I was in High School and one of my favorites. The cinnamon was a bit much in the Twinkies for me, but the torte was pretty good with this fall flavor twist. I’ve had some questions about it so here is the recipe so you can try it too. And I found a yummy recipe for Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Pinwheels I couldn’t resist sharing with the team too. Tasty and sooooo easy to make – which is my kind of recipe.

 

Twinkie Torte

1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips

1/3 c. water

1/3 c. sugar

6 eggs, separated

2 c. whip cream or Cool Whip

9-10 Twinkies cut in half

Maraschino cherries

In saucepan, combine chips, water and sugar. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until chips are melted. Remove from heat and add egg yolks one at a time, mixing well after each, and cool. Beat egg whites till stiff – gently fold into chocolate mixture. Place Twinkies, cream side up in 9×13 inch pan. Spread chocolate mixture over Twinkies. Top with whip cream and garnish with cherries. Refrigerate 12 hours before serving.

Enjoy!

 Stamp Set: Country Home (147678)

Trick or Tweet Folding Box

I love these little folding boxes that I shared with you the other day – so this time I’ve created one using the Trick or Tweet stamp set. After all we need to scare up some chocolate, right? And I couldn’t resist this little guy – he just makes me smile.

When you open up the lid and you’ll get a Halloween greeting and

Chocolate of course, (although you could put all kinds of things inside since it’s a pretty roomy box  if your guys don’t love chocolate.) I found these Russel Stover Carmel Brownie pumpkins at my local Ingles and couldn’t resist pickup up a few as gifts family.

(Sorry I think my photos are a bit off, it’s another rainy day here in Georgia which doesn’t my photo I hoping it’s just my screen.)

Trick or Tweet Treat Box

I love to make little treat items for family and friends and so when I saw the Trick or Tweets stamp set in the Holiday Catalog I knew it would be perfect for this year’s Halloween treats.

Check out this cute little box I made using the set

My fellow stamper, Pam gave this cute little box idea last spring and so I wanted to give it a try myself. Turns out these little boxes are sooooo easy to make, that they are kind of addictive once you get going.

Or at least I couldn’t stop – LOL!  The images and color combinations were just a lot of fun to play with once I got coloring with my Stampin’ Blends.

I thought you might like to try some too for your treats so I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial.

Take Your Pick Tool Box Tutorial

Have you seen the Take Your Pick Tool in the Holiday catalog on page 30? I’m so excited about this tool with all it’s features. I’m using it all the time!

Not only can you pick up small items with the Putty end, you have a spatula so you can  pick up adhered card stock layers, a paper piercer and stylus. As usual Stampin’ Up! has done it again – creating a high quality tool to make our paper crafting easier. What could be better?

A lovely box to hold it and keep everything together of course. I went looking for a way to keep all the pieces together and here is what I came up with.

These boxes are easy to make and will keep everything together for you in one place. I really like the way my first box turned out, so much so I decided to add a magnetic flap to it – so you’ve got two options when making your own.

Here is a video tutorial for you, the PDF so you can print your own Take Your Pick Tool label and a PDF tutorial with the complete supply list.

And I’ve given you cutting measurements in the PF for both the magnetic flap I’ve shown you and the non magnetic flap. Making it easy to create the version you’d like for your space.

Country Home Folding Box & Tutorial

Today’s project was one that I made for my Holiday Catalog Kick Off this past Saturday. It’s a great little box and it folds flat which makes it a lot of fun and super when you need to travel with something.

It uses the Country Home stamp set a fast becoming a favorite of mine and who can resist the Tile Tin Dynamic Embossing Folder – so perfect for a vintage feel.

I found these yummy little Russell Stover Pecan Delights as treats to go inside. I think the wrapper looks like Cajun Craze, how about you?
