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.

And of course I’ve included a complete supply list on my PDF tutorial for you.
Why not leave me a comment and let me know which combination is your favorite?
Plaid evokes memories of when my children were young in the fall and winter for me – there isn’t anything better than a soft warm plaid and sitting around a fire on a crisp evening.
Well I’m off and hoping to get some videos of some fun fall projects done for you today – I can barely see my own back yard this morning the fog is so thick, so I’m hoping I’ll have enough light. It’s a perfect day for stamping here in the mountains.
This bundle is so much fun to work with and makes elegant cards for the holiday season. Check out these three cards all using the die cut as the focal point. Done in both foil and card stock you can’t go wrong!
This first card uses the Silver Foil (132178), Swirls & Curls Dynamic Embossing Folder (147923) and the elegant Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon (144213)
And you’ve got to love our Metallic Pearls (146282) which contains both gold and silver pearls, they’re so rich looking and perfect for our holiday cards!
And here is one using the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper (147816) with it’s copper accents.
The vellum adds a bit of interest and texture to this card.
And how about this card? I love the feeling of a silhouette this card creates.
And done in Gray Granite with the wood tones from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (147820) it’s quite striking.
Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more cards using the Dashing Deer Bundle with you
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.
The printable label is in both Blackberry Bliss and Basic Black so you can choose. And there are two sizes too for the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies or Tailored Tag Punch. Simply print on Whisper White card stock.
Today’s card is the final project we made during my Holiday Catalog Kick Off and it is a fancy fold. I love the fact that we can create 3d cards using just ink and card stock! For me it’s one of the things that make paper crafting so much fun!
The Dashing Deer Bundle of products coordinates with this month’s Host Special – the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper which is perfect for projects like this since it contains multiple sheets of the same patterns. The images in this set are lovely, but when teamed up with the coordinating Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies your options are endless.
This card uses a fancy fold called the Easel Fold and I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial show how this quick and easy fold is created for you along with a printable PDF.

After watching the video do you want to make one too?
Well you’re in luck since I’ve created a PDF for you with step by step instructions to create this card along with a complete supply list too.
And today I thought I’d share some photos from the event with you.
Of course there was lots to see since we had a table with all the Designer Series Papers and some of the products you could touch and feel.
A table where you could see my upcoming Holiday Extravaganza Gifts & More projects. I’ll be sending out more information about this class room – make sure you are on my Newsletter List HERE so you can get all the details.
And of course some stamping fun!
Want to see more photos including my display boards with tons of cards? Why not stop by my Stamp with Jini’s facebook page and check it out? And while your there why not like my page so you’ll see projects & more that I share on facebook?
Enjoy! And if you love this card you’ll want to be sure to stop back next week when I’ll be sharing more cards made with this bundle!
I’ve got another project from my Holiday Catalog Kick Off for you – and a couple more Tutorials too! I originally designed this card for my Team Retreat in August, but couldn’t resist sharing it with you too!
This card is a wow with it’s texture and shimmer, that are created with a Copper Shimmer Mist, torn edge and Corrugated layers. And it’s so easy to do!
I’ve created a couple of tutorials for you. The first is a PDF for the card so you can recreate it for yourself it includes both a complete supply list and directions.

Check out this short little video where I show you how you can create your own Shimmer Mist.

Once you play with the Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon you’ll want some too – it’s to die for. And the Copper Shimmer Paint! So many ways to use this stuff – you can even use an Uninked Stampin’ Spot (141822) to create your own little Copper ink pad! How cool is that?
On to a couple of things you’ll want to know that are time sensitive:
Did you know that Fast Fuse is back? But it’s only While Supplies Last!
If you’re like me, you thought the days of Fast Fuse were done at Stampin’ Up! (You know . . .since Stampin’ Up! retired the product and everything!) However, our vendor reached out because they manufactured a surplus of Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and they offered to sell their excess Fast Fuse inventory to us. Stampin’ Up! took them up on their offer and purchased 2,500 Fast Fuse applicators and 72,000 Fast Fuse refills.
Whoo! hoo! So you won’t want to delay in ordering yours, since it while supplies last!
Items Approaching Not-Orderable Status
Here’s what Stampin’ Up! has told us.
Sales for the following holiday catalog products have exceeded Stampin’ Up!’s forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of back orders. It will be at least 30 days before these items are back in stock.
147905: Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack 147807: Chicken Wire Elements
These products will remain available until Wednesday, September 19 at 10:00 AM (MT); they will then be placed in not-orderable status. After that you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when these products are back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when the status changes for these items and they are again available for purchase.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Explanatory note: Costs incurred by backorders can be in the tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars; therefore, after weighing the variables, we occasionally must make the decision to temporarily turn off an item number rather than permit back orders to accrue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, putting a product in not-orderable status while we wait for the stock to replenish allows the company to hold costs down.
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?
I’ve made a video tutorial for you so you can make some too. Why not take a few minutes and check it out?

And how about a printable version? It includes a complete supply list and instructions to go with the video.
I chose today’s stamp set, So Santa since I’m thinking about our family, friends, and neighbors to the north in the Carolina’s who are waiting for Florence. Praying they’ll be safe. Living close to the beach has got to be wonderful, but it sounds like Florence will pack a punch. (The day here in North Georgia has been over cast and it’s been raining off and on so we can feel Florence getting closer even this far away.)
So Santa (147824/147821) is a fun set with quirky little images and sentiments for the holidays and you’ll find it on page 23 in the Holiday Catalog. These two cards happen to use the beach themed image. This first card teams the set up with the Tropical Chic stamp set (146750/146753).
And how about this card? I love the look of the surf board. I wish you could see it. I’m not sure my photo does it justice – colored with Stampin’ Blends, a quick swish of Wink of Stella and then a bit of VersaMark Ink Pad and Clear Embossing Powder.
The sand dollars and net were created with the Under the Sea Framelits Dies (146334). Too cute!
Well that is it for today since I’m a bit late posting – I’m sure my son will be looking for food soon, and since I’ve been playing in the classroom this afternoon making little treats for my Holiday Catalog Kick Off this Saturday I don’t have anything planned. LOL, so I better get going before he starts digging through the pantry!
