Geared Up Garage Mini Pizza Box

Father’s Day is right around the corner and here is a cute way to give a gift card or other small gift to dad.

I made this little box with the Geared Up Garage Bundle (150610) from the Occasions Catalog – a perfect set for the guys in our lives! I meant to share this earlier with you since I made it back at OnStage, but the tutorial got lost on my computer and I ran across it the other day. Do you ever do that? LOL if I don’t see it… you know how it goes.

So anyhow here is a pdf tutorial for you today.

Happy Tails & More

Today’s projects were all made by my team members for swapping at our March Meeting. Sharing ideas is part of the fun when we gather each month, since we all have different styles of stamping. I love seeing what everyone has been up to crafting.

This first card uses the Happy Tails Bundle (150631) found on page 33 of the Occasions Catalog.

It has a cool fold that when open reveals the sentiment inside. The Classic Garage Designer Series Paper was used for the background and pulls the colors together that are used on the card. And since a lot of us have 4 footed family members this bundle is a great choice.

And this next card uses the Geared Up Garage (148590) and it’s suite of products. So we’ve got tons of products to choose from for the dudes in our lives.

I love the way Shirley used the punched out piece (from the Triple Banner Punch) of the wheel pattern to create the arrow design in the right hand corner. That would have been trash other wise – clever.

And how about this fun card using the So Hoppy Together (Sale-a-bration 149725) stamp set?

I really like the way that Cindy used the Dynamic Corrugated Embossing Folder (148026) to create the latch for the card. And how about those googly eyes? Fun!

And here is the final project for the day – a cute little 3d box that hold a couple of pieces of chocolate made with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (133324).

Do you have your 2017-2019 In Color Reinkers?

Team Winter Weekend Retreat Swaps

This past weekend I had the privilege of gathering with my team for our 7th Annual Winter Weekend Retreat – A full 3 days of fellowship, fun and of course stamping.

I love these weekends since it’s a chance for everyone to let their hair down and relax during this extended period of time together. We share, learn, and get to know each other a bit better. It’s like a big slumber party with your best friends –

On Saturday afternoon we hold our Shoe box Swap and I always love to see what everyone comes up with. So today I thought I’d share some of the cards with you that my team members did.

These first two cards use the Classic Garage Suite of products found on page 42-43 of the Occasions Catalog.

I just love this suite of products and the Geared Up Garage Bundle (148590) with it’s coordinating dies. Perfect for creating card for the dudes in our lives. After all does anyone know a guy who doesn’t like cars?

And this next card uses the Beauty Abounds Bundle (150617). If you love this bundle as much as I do why not sign up for my February Class? Not only will you be able to get this great bundle in the class we’ll spend the afternoon making projects together. Click HERE to learn more about my Beauty Abounds Class.

If you haven’t seen this Specialty Designer Series Paper yet in person – it is absolutely gorgeous! The Floral Romance pack includes two different Vellum patterns along with 2 double sided patterns. So it’s a great value since you’ll get multiples of each.

And how about this card made with the Sheltering Tree stamp set (137163) found in the Annual Catalog on page 140? We used this simple technique of stamping twice. Once onto the card front and again onto to the circles to add a pop of color.

And here is a fun technique card Daisy Delight stamp set (143669) and Daisy Punch (143713) from the Annual Catalog.

Do you recognize the sentiment? It’s from the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580). And the All My Love Designer Series Paper (148576) both can be found in the Occasions Catalog.

Watch some tutorials coming soon for these fancy folds – I hope to work on them in the next week or so.
