Count Down Sale-a-bration with Party Pandas

Did you know there are just 10 days left for Sale-a-bration – yep it ends on March 31st! So today I thought I’d share with you some fun cards using the Party Panda stamp set, one of our most popular Sale-a-bration choices! After all who can resist these cute little guys?

This first card also uses the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 147244) along with the Daisy Punch (143713) to create the fun movement behind the panda.

And how about this one done in Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist?

I  really really enjoy the Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies (143700) teamed up with our Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (144106) it makes this die soooo quick and easy to use!

And this final card is simple and sweet – done in the classic combination of black & white with a little pop of red.

Do you recognize the paper? It is part of the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper (144163).

These items are just a few of the fun Sale-a-bration products you have to choose from. Want to see them all? Click HERE

And how about this? Need a gift or just a quick crafting option?

St. Patty’s Day Ferrero Roche Gift Box Video Tutorial

I recently attending a DIY Retreat and received these yummy little Ferrero Roche Chocolates at dinner. Of course everyone at the table was on a diet right now, so I ended up with a little pile of them. LOL! As I lined them up on my table they made me think of little pots of gold – so I couldn’t resist making a little box for them for St. Patrick’s Day!

Of course I couldn’t resist adding a little shine to this project, so I pulled out the fabulous Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. The light green was perfect for this project!

These boxes are quick and easy to make so I whipped up a video tutorial for you in case you wanted to make some too!

So what do you think? Do you want to spread a little luck of the Irish and a little chocolate of course?!

If so I’ve also made a printable PDF tutorial with the supply list and measurements for you to go along with the video.

Sweet Soiree Box Video Tutorial

Love boxes? Here is a quick and easy one you can make to hold small items. I made this box recently to hold a gift that my Team received – a scissors charm.

The Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper is breath taking with the silver foil and one of my first purchases when I was able to do my OnStage Product Purchase Premiere that I shared with you back in November. The package has 12 patterns and each one of the 6 double sided patterns has a side with silver foil on it. So you’ve got lots of designs to choose from!

This adorable little box is so quick and easy to make that I couldn’t resist doing a video tutorial for you so you can make some too.

Sweet Soiree Box Video Tutorial

Easy? I’ve given you a complete supply list below for the box. And would you like to know how I made these charms?

Shrinky Dinks! Yes, you heard me right – a throw back to our childhood. I love watching them curl up and shrink. LOL!

Simply stamp the images from the Crafting Forever stamp set (143955/143958) onto the Shrinky Dinks using Basic Black Archival Ink and color them with Stampin’ Blends or Sharpies. (Be careful not to touch the line image or it may smear.)

I fussy cut the scissors and used a circle punch for the sentiments. After that I punched a 1/8″ circle using my Handheld Circle Punch. Heated according to the directions and then added them to a jump ring so that I could add them to the premade holder.

Quick and easy – since I made the scissors different colors we can all tell our scissors apart now!

Supplies: 

Stamp Set: Lovely Wishes (145924)

Inks: Old Olive (126953) and Berry Burst Classic Ink (144083)

Paper: Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper (145664), Old Olive (100703), and Whisper White Card stock (100730)

Accessories: Personal Trimmer (126889) and Silver 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon (144213)

Lots of Lavender Sachet Video Tutorial

I recently held my Occasions Catalog Kick Off the end of December and so I thought I’d share the projects that we made with you over the next few days along with the tutorials for them.  Today’s lavender sachet was their gift for attending.

Everyone was great about the fact I wasn’t able to finish assembling them myself due to a last minute procedure the day before, so it became a third project for them. LOL! I’ve got such a great group of stampers!

We had a lot of fun using the new products and stamping together. Everyone who attended not only made 3 fun projects, but also got to see the fun new products from them for the first time.

Want to see how they are made? I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial for you and also a printed tutorial too!

Team Holiday Fun

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I love to pamper my team! So for this month’s team meeting we had our Annual Holiday luncheon and enjoyed some time together where we laughed, shared, played and stamped.

Want to see some of the wonderful items they’ve been making since the last meeting?

Fantastic projects, right? I can’t pick a favorite – I’ve got such a great team of folks who just love to paper craft!

We had fun playing the dice game too. Have you ever played this game?

Fun, and fast paced! And of course when the clock runs out – the goodies are yours!

I made these fun Lots of Lavender Bags. The stamp set is one of our Sale-a-bration options and I couldn’t resist the yummy new ribbon from the Occasions Catalog.

Each bag was filled with a little something special from the NEW Occasions Catalog! Everyone was a winner!

And of course we made a couple of projects too- So we did some stamping too! I had so much fun designing for my Santa’s Workshop Class that I had too many projects for just one class. LOL! You know me I love gift items and 3ds!!! So we made some candle holders and learned a fun new technique while we were at it!

I found these yummy lemon candy canes at the Dollar Tree and couldn’t resist putting them with a lemon scented candle and using the Lemon Zest stamp set (143805/143808). This bundle has very quickly become one of my go to favorites! Lemons, oranges, and limes – oh, my!

I thought you might enjoy making some of these for yourself. With all the crazy flavored candy canes out there right now the options are endless, but of course I can’t resist anything lemon!

Here is my Blue Mountain Stampers’ Lemon Zest Candle Tutorial (printable PDF)
