One Sheet Wonder–Sixteen Merry Cards!

Project 9 (1)

Hi Stampers!!

Today is December 15, and that means there’s only 10 more days until Christmas! If you haven’t started making your Christmas cards yet, you could be in trouble…BUT, you won’t be with the awesome project I’m sharing with you today! I’m going to show you how to make sixteen Christmas cards with one sheet of Designer Series Paper, and by following the quick and easy designs, you’ll have time leftover for everything else on your list!

*Join me at 3PM, Eastern, on Facebook, for a LIVE tutorial, or check back later for the YouTube video!*

Here’s a reference sheet showing all the cuts! Start with a piece of 12in x 12in cardstock, cut it into three pieces that measure 12in x 4in, and then follow the diagram below to see how to cut each strip! (The diagram below shows the original 12in x 12in sheet!)

Project 9 (2)

As you can see, you use the entire sheet of paper! Don’t forget…you’re not limited to Christmas cards! Once you have the patterns down, you can create cards using any DSP, and to fit any occasion!

Happy Stampin’! ๐Ÿ™‚


Berry Sweet Celebrate Card!

Card 56

Hi Stampers!

Today I’m playing with some items from the Sweet Soiree Suite, and the CELEBRATE YOU Thinlits Dies! The CAKE SOIREE Stamp Set, SWEET SOIREE Specialty Designer Series Paper, and Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon are all part of the Suite, and they’re available in the upcoming Occasions Catalog! The CELEBRATE YOU Thinlits are from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure, and you can get them FREE with a $100+ purchase in my store (before shipping/tax!)

*You can shop from both the catalog and brochure starting January 3!*

Chocolate Pizza Gift Box!

Project 8 (1)

Hi Stampers!

Today I’m sharing a super cute gift idea using the Mini Pizza Boxes from the Holiday Catalog! Luckily, these boxes are on the carryover list, but the MERRY LITTLE LABELS Stamp Set, and MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS Designer Series Paper are NOT, so order soon if you want either the stamp set or the DSP–many items on the retired list are “WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!”

Project 8 (2)

A couple quick notes about the box:

~The top piece of DSP measures 3.25in x 3.25in.
~The side pieces measure 7/8in x 3.25in.
~I used the 3/4in circle punch to cut the half-circle on the front side piece.
~I used the Everyday Label Punch to punch out two pieces of Cherry Cobbler.
~I adhered everything to the front with double dimensionals (one on top of the other) to allow space for the Library Clip to sit right.

Here’s a pic of the inside:

Project 8 (3)

Aside from the supply list below, you’ll also need six Fun-Sized Hershey Chocolate Bars! You can fit nine in the box without the DSP, but once they are covered, only six will fit in the box!

~The piece of DSP covering the chocolate is 3in x 3in.
~Use FastFuse to adhere the paper to the candy/itself, otherwise it will pop open/off.

That’s it!

These Chocolate Pizza Gift Boxes are super fun to make, and wonderful to give!

Hi Stampers!!

Just in case you (gasp!) didn’t watch Friday’s Facebook Live, I wanted to show you the note card set alternates I featured at the end of the video! As I mentioned in my last post, once you have the basics down, the possibilities are endless for this great gift idea! I even put the cards in one of our acetate boxes for those that don’t like the outer folder!

You can find all of the supplies for this project on Friday’s Post! Also, if you make one if these sets, I’d love to see your version! ๐Ÿ™‚

Monogram Note Card Set!

Project 7 (1)

Hi Stampers!

With the holidays fast approaching, here’s a quick and easy gift you can make for almost anyone on your list! I used to make and sell these note card sets at craft fairs years ago, and they always sold out! Once you have the basics down, you don’t have to limit yourself to monograms, either! ๐Ÿ™‚

Project 7 (2)

You can watch the LIVE how-to video on Facebook at 3PM, Eastern, or come back here later and watch the replay! (I always post my live tutorials to YouTube later in the day!)

Panda Love Card!

Card 55

Hi Stampers!!

I couldn’t resist playing with my new box of goodies yesterday–especially because this panda is so stinkin’ cute!! He’s part of the PARTY PANDAS Stamp Set, and starting January 3, you can get it FREE with a $50 (before tax/shipping) purchase in my online store!!

The heart background is part of the PAINTED WITH LOVE Specialty Designer Series Paper, available in the new Occasions Catalog (also releasing January 3), and it’s special because every sheet has gold foil accents on one side!! They are so beautiful, and I can’t wait to play with them more!

I stamped the “Love You” sentiment in Melon Mambo, and to finish this design, I used the Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker to fill in the little heart on panda’s envelope!

As always, if you have any questions about the new Occasions Catalog, or the Sale-a-Bration Brochure–or anything else Stampin’ Up! related–don’t hesitate to email me!

Let it Snow Bling Card!

Card 54 (1)

Hi Stampers!

Today I’m sharing a super-quick, super-sparkly Christmas card, and I have to say…I’m in love with how “blingtastic” it is! Not only does the MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS Designer Series Paper give off a shimmery vibe, but the added Mini Sequin Trim and Rhinestone Basic Jewels complete the ensemble for something amazing! Your friends will definitely think you spent more time on this card than you actually did! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s a picture of the background up close:

Card 54 (2)

I used seven Rhinestones in total…two on the sentiment, and five on the DSP, which you can see in the picture above!

Keep in mind, that if you want to make this card, and you don’t already have the supplies, both the MERRY LITTLE LABELS Stamp Set, and the MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS Designer Series Paper are on the Holiday Catalog Retiring List! That means that you only have a short window left to order these goodies, and many items are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! (NOTE: The Everyday Label Punch is on the Carryover List, and it will be available until May 2018!)

If you haven’t seen it already, you can find both lists on this post!

Happy Stampin’! ๐Ÿ™‚
