Dragonfly Dreams Gift Box

Dragonfly Dreams Gift Box

Hi Friends.  Today I want to share this adorable project with you using the new stamp set from the Spring Occasions catalog called “Dragonfly Dreams“.  I created these super simple boxes just using a few pieces of cardstock, my Stampin Trimmer and stamps/ink!  If you don’t have a catalog yet or a Demonstrator, please email me so I can send you one.Dragonfly Dreams

The larger box measures 8 x 8″ for the bottom piece and 8 1/8″ x 8 1/8″ for the top.  The bottom cardstock is Rich Razzleberry and the top is Whisper White.  In hindsight, I probably would have used Very Vanilla instead because the color is more rich- but it’s still a super cute project don’t you think?

To begin with, you are going to use the matching ink and stamp the Dragonfly randomly on the White cardstock.  The stamp set has so many beautiful stamps as well as a matching die cut!

Okay, it’s so simple to create this, you are going to LOVE it.  Here it is.  Score 1″ on all sides of your cardstock.    That’s it.  No, seriously!!  Cut a slit on each corner so that you can fold up and glue the sides together to form the box lid and bottom.  

Do the same thing with the top, but score the cardstock at 1/2″ and then again at 1″.  This way, you fold in the 1/2″ to reinforce the lid, and it is also a smidgen smaller than the bottom so that the bottom cardstock shows through.

Then, you can go ahead and do this with ANY SIZE paper you like.  Here is a smaller version of the same box:

Quilted Cards

Quilted Cards

Hi Friends.  Every Thursday morning at 10 a.m. EST, I am on Facebook LIVE to do a new project with you. This week I wanted to do Quilted Cards and I had to move it to Friday because we had  a snow storm and then my kids had a 2 hour delay getting on the bus the next day and my washing machine broke and it was chaos.  Ya- just a typical day in the Carter household 🙂

 

Quilted Cards

 

Of course, I am using ALL Stampin’ Up products to make these quilted cards.  It’s a great way to use up your scraps without having to spend more money!  You can see the video below as to how we created these cards.

Balloon Adventures

By | February 8, 2017

Balloon Adventures

Hi everyone. Today I’m sharing a project created with the new stamp set, Balloon Adventures!  I saw a similar one posted online (I apologize for not writing down the originator) and wanted to re-create it.

Balloon Adventures

What I was drawn to on this card was the background.  It’s so smart, don’t you think?  Using the stamp to create an entire background.  I’ve done this before with other stamps, but not usually using an entire layer like this 4 x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White.

If you look, below, you can see a close up of the balloons.  I started in the middle and worked my way to each side from there.  I didn’t use a ruler or anything, but you could if you wanted it to be exact.  Or even a post-it note would work too!

Balloon Adventures

Imagine the possibilities with colors on this card…. You could easily stamp out a ton of these cards in in so many color combinations.  If you have trouble putting colors together on your own, make sure you check out my facebook page where I post weekly color combination inspirations like the one I have here:

Hi Friends.  Every Thursday morning at 10 a.m. EST, I am on Facebook LIVE to do a new project with you.  This past Thursday, we created these gorgeous tissue holders!  Aren’t they adorbs?

Tissue Holder

You simply slide a small “to-go” pack of tissues in the bottom box here and then the whole box slides into the one shown above.  It’s adorable.  My best stampin’ friend Marilyn received one of these as a gift, and I had to re-create it!  So stinking cute!!  I saved the video so you can watch it again below.

Balloon Adventures

By | January 16, 2017

Well, have I got good news for you today!  The Stitched Shape Framelits are BACK!  They were so incredibly popular, they went on backorder and then we weren’t supposed to be able to order them again until the new catalog comes out in June.  But alas… the craft gods have heard our pleas.  Woo hoo!

Click here to go grab yourself this awesome package of dies!  They are my absolute FAVORITE!  Like, EVER!

Click here to get yours!Balloon Adventures

Today’s project features these framelits.  I can’t get enough of the stitched edging.  It adds so much to each project without overwhelming it, don’t you think?

Balloon Adventures Stamp Set

And, I’m using the new stamp set Balloon Adventures, which of course has lots of regular balloons, but I like the fonts and the sentiments most in this set.  And although this paper was not “made” to coordinate with this set (it goes with the “Lift Me Up” stamp), I love the colors and images for all occasions!  The best part about this paper is that it’s FREE!  With every $50 you spend, you can grab yourself free product from the new Sale-A-Bration brochure!  You can see the brochure here.

Balloon Adventures

See this stinking cute ribbon?  Yep, that came from the matching Balloon Pop-Up thinlits to this stamp set.  Sweet!  You will love these die cuts as well because they create a pop-up effect on the inside of your card.  I didn’t create that with this card, but you can click on the product below to see some great examples.

All I Want For Christmas is…

By | December 22, 2016

I mean, can we get real for a moment friends?  How often do we really get what we want for Christmas?

For example I would like everything in the new Stampin’ Up! Spring Occasions Catalog. (It goes live January 4th). As usual, gorgeous gorgeous stuff!!  What’s a girl to do?

It’s easier than you think.  Especially starting January 4th!!! When you purchase the starter kit, you grab yourself an additional $30 in free goodies.  PLUS- you get to join my team 🙂  Read more about that here!

This past weekend was my team Christmas party.  We shared food, drinks and lots of stamping!  Take a gander at some of the pictures!IMG_9067

For those that live near me, we celebrated by each making something to eat for our potluck!  We shared eggs, sausage, cranberry bread, hashbrown casserole (THE most delicious I’ve ever tasted), fruit, yogurt and granola!  It was YUMMY!!

IMG_9070

IMG_9071

Once the girls came, we sat down to eat and share conversation.  Then, we moved into the dining room where they were surprised with little gifts from me.  I made them tissue holders and gave them each an ornament.

IMG_9068

We each brought a shoebox swap.  This is where you design a card and then put all the cut paper and embellishments in a shoebox for everyone to re-create!  It’s so fun to see everyone’s designs.  Those that couldn’t make it, sent in their swap cards and we created their cards for them.

The Legend of the Candy Cane

By | December 5, 2016

The Legend of the Candy Cane

Okay folks, apparently there are stories to Candy Canes that I was totally in the dark about!  Have you heard any?  As I was crafting today and looking through my designer series paper, I had one with Candy Canes on it.  I wanted to create a beautiful Christmas card but also wanted it to have some meaning.  As I browsed “The Google” as my kids call it, I came across stories about Candy Canes.  I was intrigued to keep reading.

To completely abbreviate the story I liked, Candy Canes were designed to remind folks what Christmas is really all about.  (Besides shopping and stuff) According to legend, this candy was designed back in the 18th century where in Europe, it was forbidden to show any signs of Christianity.  A Candy Maker wanted to make a candy as a way to teach children the real meaning of Christmas without getting in trouble and that’s how he came up with the Candy Cane.

Whether you are Christian or not, whether you believe the story or not- it’s still very interesting so I wanted to share how the Candy Maker supposedly came up with the Candy Cane.

  • The shape is supposed to look like a Shepherd’s staff- Jesus was a shepherd. It’s also in the form of the letter “J”.  (for the man himself)
  • Jesus is a rock- so the candy is hard to remind the children that “Jesus is their rock”
  • The stripes- White for purity and holiness, red for the crucifixion.
  • Peppermint was chosen because it was very similar to “hyssop” which was used for sacrifice and purification in the Old Testament.
  • It’s to be given as a gift- representing the love of Jesus when he gave us the gift of salvation.

Isn’t it interesting?  I hope you enjoyed my little research project today.  And that brings us to today’s card, which has Candy Canes on it 🙂 I decided to use the Tin of Tags Project Kit and the matching stamp set ‘cuz they’re so stinking cute!
