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.

Take Your Pick Tool Box Tutorial –

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?

I’ve made a video tutorial for you so you can make some too. Why not take a few minutes and check it out?

2018 Annual Catalog Kick Off & More

Saturday I held my 2018 Annual Catalog Kick Off and so I thought I’d share some information and photos from the event along with one of the projects too. After all who doesn’t love a tutorial?

These first photos are of some of the classroom displays, my son recently built this new cabinet for me. It’s still a work in process, but I’m loving it!

And everyone had a special treat at their place too. These were quick and easy to make with our 2″x 8″ Cellophane Bags (141703)

This sweet little nugget treat was made using our NEW 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper (146963) and the Love What You Do stamp set (148042). It’s tied up with a quick little bow made from our Call Me Clove 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon (146951).

Here is what everyone’s spot at the table looked like

Everyone received a sweet treat, 2018-2020 In Color Book Mark, a Color Revamp Inventory Sheet in addition to a Shopping List, Catalog Corrections sheet, Catalog, and of course their Project supplies.

I thought you might want a couple of these things too. You’ll want to be sure to check out the Catalog Correction Sheet so you can mark your catalogs since there are some wrong prices listed in the 2018 Catalog.

Here you go – So you can print them off for yourself

2018 Annual Catalog Corrections PDF

2018 Color Revamp Color Collection Inventory Chart PDF

This chart includes Ink pads, refills, markers, blends, spots and card stock of both sizes! Simply print this off on a piece of Whisper White Card stock (double sided) and then score at the 3 5/8″ and 7 3/8″ marks along the long edge. It will fold easily into what you see above that way, and you can carry it along with you or tuck into your craft bag.

And of course – everyone got to stamp with the new colors and stamps!

It was a fun afternoon. Everyone seemed to enjoy the projects so much I thought I’d share them with you.

This NEW In Color just makes me smile-

Done in the bright and cheerful Pineapple Punch! How can you not love this cheerful In Color? This card is quick and easy to do. Why not check out my tutorial below and make some yourself?

Petal Passion Personalized Photo Albums

Today’s project is a personalized album using the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. I chose this paper because since it is black & white I could customize the albums with my team members favorite color. I think they turned out pretty cool.

I love to pamper my team at OnStage and I thought it would be a fun way for them to keep their memories of the event and the fun they had together. I also made a coordinating bag tag for everyone with charms to go on their key chains later.

I used some Shrinky Dinks for the OnStage piece – fun, right?

I think the team were pleased when they found them in their rooms.

Want to see how to make one of the Photo Albums for yourself?

I’ve made some personalized photo albums by simply changing out the OnStage image and adding a letter using our Large Letter Dies. I also made some quick modifications to the inside – that’s the beautify of this album! You can add pages, change the cover or color, journaling areas – the options are unlimited!

I’ve created some for family and friends too – so I’m all set for my upcoming gift giving needs – got to love that, right? lol

Here is my Petal Passion Personalized Photo Album Video Tutorial

And since you’ll need the supply list and measurements I’ve whipped up a PDF too – I’ve included lots of pictures for you so you can see all the pages finished.

Quick & Easy Easter Treats!

Check out these quick and easy Easter Treats I whipped up yesterday using the We Must Celebrate stamp set – I really love this little bunny.

And the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (128748/127802) is one of my favorites since it has a ton of sentiments and gives you something for every occasion!

I used our 2″ x 8″ Cellophane Bags (141703) and filled it with Hershey’s Nuggets that I wrapped strips from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (144185).

A quick wash with my Aqua Painter (103954) in Smoky Slate (131179) and Blushing Bride Classic Ink (131172) completed my bunny. For the topper I was inspired by the colors in the paper and used my Layering Circles Framelits Dies (141705).

And how about this little Treat Pouch filled with a Ghiradelli Blueberry Chocolate Square? Got to tell you these chocolates are yummy!

I used the Petal Garden Designer Series 6×6 Paper Stack (144168) since it is perfect for this project – no cutting and of course teamed it up with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies (141705) so I could get the full body of this little guy. A quick sentiment done in Old Olive Classic Ink (126953) and voila! done and ready for giving out this weekend!

You can see my video tutorial on how to make these little Treat Pouches CLICK HERE.

Enjoy! And then why not stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more projects with you?

We Must Celebrate Easter Merci Chocolate Box Tutorial

I just received my We Must Celebrate stamp set and couldn’t wait to get started creating with these fun little animals. I knew I would love using the little bunny for creating Easter gifts for family and friends.

I knew just want I wanted to do with them after making this chocolate box for my team members (Click HERE to see the video tutorial). So today’s project is one I whipped up a bunch of for those attending yesterday’s card class as a little surprise.

And of course it holds what else? Chocolate of course! I’m really finding these Merci Chocolate quite yummy and fun to work with and am asking myself how I’ve over looked them for so long!

I love the soft spring feel of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper when I ran across the package – so I used it to help choose the colors I used.

Wonder how I got just the bunny image? You could color it with Stampin’ Write Markers, or even mask the other section of the stamp off, but I cut the stamp apart. Yes, you heard me correctly – and for those of you who know me you know just how hard this was for me. LOL!

But I did it and am glad I did now, since it makes using this image so much easier AND when I want to stamp the group together I simply put it together on my clear block.

It didn’t affect the image at all when I stamped it, which made me very happy. The only thing I would do differently is cut the label before I apply it to the back of my clear mount stamp.

I’ve made a quick tutorial for you so you can make some too!
