In Color Labeler Alphabet Gift Card Holder!

Project 45 (1)

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!!

Today I’m sharing a simple–but FUN–gift card holder using the new 2018-2020 In Color Collection, and the Stamparatus!! (Watch me on Facebook LIVE at 4PM, Eastern, to see how to use this tool with alphabet stamp sets!)

I mentioned this gift card holder is simple, and it is, but that’s one of the things I love about it! It can be used for any occasion that requires some celebration, or you can change the sentiment to fit your needs! It’s awesome!

As a demonstrator, I can pre-order certain products from the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog (this catty goes live June 1!), and because I love the new In Color Collection, I had to get the new 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon in all five colors, and the 2018-2020 6×6 Designer Series Paper! *I already had the In Color Stampin’ Pads, and the In Color Cardstock Pack from my Pre-Preorder! πŸ˜‰

Anyway, one look at the cute, dotted paper, and I knew a celebration was in order! This design of the DSP is my fave, but there are three other patterns that are super-cute, too, so you’ll definitely want this paper pack in your stash!

Here’s a pic of the project inside:

You can’t order the Cardstock Pack, Ribbon, or DSP until June 1, but you can get the Stampin’ Pad Collection as part of the Share What You Love Early Release Flyer! (Check out the flyer, here!)

And don’t forget…Buy the GOTTA HAVE IT ALL Bundle, and you’ll get access to Bren’s Stampin’ Studio (my online classroom) for one month (starting June 1)–and four exclusive project videos!

With the exception of the Stamparatus*, here’s a list of the supplies you can’t order until June 1:

2018-2020 In Color Cardstock (#146973)
2018-2020 In Color DSP (#146963)
Lovely Lipstick 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (#146952)
Grapefruit Grove 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (#146954)
Pineapple Punch 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (#146953)
Call Me Clover 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (#146951)
Blueberry Bushel 1/8 Grosgrain Ribbon (#146950)

*The Stamparatus also has an order date of June 1, but I’ve listed it in the supply list for easy reference later!

Want to make this project with me? Watch me on Facebook LIVE today at 4PM, Eastern, or catch the replay on my YouTube Channel! (Replay is usually posted 1-3 days later!)

Happy Stampin’! πŸ™‚

Project 44 (2)

You guys! This Suite is filled with so many beautiful products, and we use a ton of them on this gift set! Do you see that cute little Grapefruit Grove paperclip?? It’s so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! In the pic above, I covered a snack size popcorn pack using the awesome Share What You Love DSP, and…

Project 44 (3)

Then I made a pretty 3×3 card to go with it!! (Don’t forget the 3×3 Envelopes!!)

This set is perfect when you need to say “Thank You” to that special someone, and with the Share What You Love Suite, you may want to say Thank You to lots of special someones! πŸ˜‰

I’ll be making this set today on Facebook LIVE at 4PM, Eastern, and I’d love for you to join me! Just visit my Facebook Page at 4PM, EST, and find the live post! πŸ™‚

Basket Weave “Fishy” Tackle Box!

Project 43

Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

One of my customers showed me an adorable pic of a tackle box she found online, and asked me if I could show her how to make it, so, of course I tried…and tried, and tried…LOL! Well, you see where this is going! πŸ˜‰

After several tries, I created my own version, and I love the way it turned out! This cute box is perfect for all the fishermen/women in your life, and it’s a decent size, too, so you can pack it with yummy treats, or even some (gummy) worms! πŸ˜€

I love the octopus on the fishing pole (from the MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE Stamp Set), but if you’d prefer to have a fish on your pole, you can find one in the SEASIDE SHORE Stamp Set! I listed both sets in the supply list below, and both are on the Retiring Lists, so don’t wait if you want to add either set to your collection!

You can make this box with me in the following video:

Note: In the supply list below, the BASKET WEAVE Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder has a price of $0.00, but this is incorrect. The folder will be $9.00 when the new catalog goes live on June 1! Also, the DETAILED TRIO PUNCH won’t be available until June 1. We use the 1″ Circle Punch in the video, but I’ve listed the Trio Punch as an alternate tool for those watching after June 1!

Check out how easy it is in today’s video:

Petal Palette Gatefold Thank You Card!

Card 99 (1)
Hi Stampers!

OMG! I’ve seen several gatefold cards that I just love, but I’ve never made one before…until today!! This card measures the same as a standard card size (5.5in x 4.25in), but instead of folding the paper in half, you fold in the two sides to meet in the middle! Then it’s just a matter of placing the sentiment on one half so it holds the other side down!

On this card, when you open the first flap, you see our stamped message:

Card 99 (2)
…and then the area under the other flap is blank with enough space for a handwritten note!

Cool Treats Bubbles & Fizz Birthday Card!

Card 98 (1)
Hi Stampin’ Peeps!

Isn’t this birthday card soooo cute? I used the BUBBLES & FIZZ Designer Series Paper–which is a Sale-a-Bration item–along with the COOL TREATS Stamp Set out of the Annual Catalog!!

Reminder: If you’re interested in earning the BUBBLES & FIZZ DSP, the SHIMMER RIBBON COMBO PACK, or any other Sale-a-Bration item…You only have until SATURDAY to make a qualifying purchase in my online Stampin’ Up! store!! Sale-a-Bration ends this Saturday (3/31/2018), and except for the CELEBRATE YOU Thinlits Dies, and the BASKET WEAVE Dynamic Embossing Folder, once the sale ends, everything is GONE FOREVER!!

Anyhoo! πŸ˜‰

I made a few different samples of the card above with different sheets from the paper pack! Check them out:

Card 98 (2)

Card 98 (3)
Honestly, I’m not sure which one is my fave, but the one we’re making in the video is the first pic at the top of this post! Check out the video here:

I’ve listed all of the supplies I used for the FIRST card below, but if you would like to make the ones in the other pics, then you’ll also need the following:

Tutti-Frutti Good Day Spring Box (& Video)!

Project 40 (1)

Hi Stampers!

Look at those cute boxes!! Do you recognize the print on the paper? I made these using the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure!! The Cards & Envelopes are a Level 1 item, which means you can get them FREE with a $50+ (before tax/shipping) purchase in my online store! You have to hurry, though…Sale-a-Bration ends March 31!!

For the stamped images, I used the A GOOD DAY Stamp Set! You guys, this set has so many small images, and they coordinate perfectly with the new Scalloped Circle Punches! (The punches come in two sizes, 1 1/8, and 1 3/8!) Both the stamp set and punches are available in the 2018 Occasions Catalog!! (Occasions runs until May 31!)

Here’s a closer look at the box:

And, of course I have a video for you guys:
