Swivel Top Box

Do you love to coordinate your cards with your gift wrap? I sure do but sometimes I can’t seem to find the right stuff at the local shops so, I create my own. This month’s tutorial teaches you how to make a 4″ x 4″ square swivel topped box that is 1″ high but this type of box can be any size you need for the gift you are giving! You use the same designer series paper stack to create both your card and to decorate the box and WhaaaaLaaaa, coordination at its finest…just makes my heart happy!  The designer series paper used to decorate this box is the Twinkle Twinkle DSP from the 2018 – 2019 SU! Annual Calendar.

Happy Valentine’s Day with ALL My Love

Well Valentines Day is just a few days a way, do you have big plans? If you’re in need of a quick card, this Happy Valentines Day using the All My Love Suite from Stampin’ UP!s 2019 occasions catalog will help you create the perfect card for all the special loves in your life. I am especially loving the Lace Dynamic textured embossing folder for creating a wonderful and interesting texture on the front of the card.

The great thing about the style of this card is that you can change out any of the elements to create cards for all types of occasions throughout the year from birthday, Easter, Mother’s Day and more, simply choose different card stock, designer series paper, ribbon and whaaaaalaaaaa, a whole new card!! To make this card, click Happy Valentines.

Non-Traditional Valentines Day Card

Happy New Year!

What do you all think about Valentines Day? Personally, while I love the idea of showing my tribe lots of love, I’d rather do this everyday instead of one day like a Valentines Day. My guy sure appreciates that sentiment as well as that gets him off the hook from trying to plan anything special for February 14th and in all honesty, gets me off the hook too…LOL! Buuuuut that doesn’t mean we can’t make some beautiful cards to share!

So, I was walking into my local Target the other day (well truth be told – I’m there everyday) and noticed that the Valentine Card display was up and 99% of the cards are reds and pinks. Well, just coming off the Christmas holiday means my red card stock has been depleted so why not make a non-traditional Valentines Day card? Click on the wishing you a lovely day to download today’s tutorial.

In today’s tutorial, we use some products from the new 2019 Stampin’ UP! Occasions Catalog, which you can download below as well as the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Sale-A-Bration is Stampin’ UP!s best sale of the year…for every $50 you spend, you can chose a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure! So many amazing products!

Wishing You a Lovely Day

Christmas in July Pop-Up Envelope Cards

For a July 2016 challenge, we were asked to create a “Christmas in July” themed “some-thing-or-other” (no one ever says you have to just make cards). While spending time brainstorming, my 7 year old grand daughter popped in and asked if she could help me and this project was born!

For full instructions, click here: Mini Envelope Cards

My grand daughter made the penguin and the snowman!
