Last Minute Gift Idea: Christmas Jingle Explosion Scrap Box

I hope you are enjoying all of the last minute gift ideas this week!  Today's project is called an Explosion BoxWhen you open up the box, all of the sides will lay flat.  Just add a photo to each of the solid colored squares and you will have an instant keepsake album!  This would be a wonderful gift for a grandmother, godmother, or aunt.  The best part of all is that it doesn't need to be gift wrapped!   

The patterned papers and die cuts are from the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit. This lovely project idea came in the mail from Sally!  All I had to was adhere the pieces together and assemble.  Thanks Sally!









******************

Last Minute Gift Idea: Fancy Favor Box

The Fancy Favor Bigz XL die for the Sizzix Big Shot makes gift packages in a flash!  Add a tag to the front of the favor using Stampin' Dimensionals and place a few small holiday treats inside the favor box and you're good to go!  Or to step up your project as shown in the photo, use the Horizontal Slot Punch at the top of the box and thread 1-1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon through the slots.  Tie the ribbon in a knot to keep the box closed and the contents secure!  This lovely project idea was created by Sally Jercha.


Reminder

Tomorrow is the last day of the 12 Days of Holiday Sales Promotion! Don't forget to add Holiday Mini Catalog items and Retiring Dormant Stamp Sets to your order!  Time is running out for those items!  The Holiday Extravaganza Gift Giving Guide promotion will also be ending soon.

Last Minute Gift Idea: Wrapped Chocolates

This is another gift that was sent to me by Sally.  Eight mini chocolates were wrapped with Designer Series Paper and packaged inside a cute little box.  I love how the bow coordinates with all of the papers! 

Tuck a gift card underneath the chocolates and you have a quick and easy last minute gift for a family member or friend!

Our 7 Foot Christmas Tree!

Here is my first scrapbook layout with the Christmas Cocoa II (120880, $9.95) digital download for My Digital Studio! This fun digital kit has just about everything you need—Designer Series papers and lots of Christmas ornaments, tags, labels, and borders— to make beautiful holiday projects. Even better, the Designer Series paper in this kit coordinates perfectly with the Berry Christmas (118117, $5.95) digital download.  

Berry Christmas is also sold as a rubber stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog (116509, $22.95).  But don't delay if you want that stamp set because the sales period for the Holiday Mini Catalog ends on January 4, 2010! 




This is our first Christmas in this house!  We had so much fun decorating our home for the holidays.  But once the tree was up in our living room, we realized we had a small dilemma - - after his surgery, Chris can only lift a maximum of 5 pounds for a whole month.  How am I going to get this heavy 7 foot tree out of my living room by myself after Christmas?  I think we're just going to have to wait until he is fully healed So if you come over to my house in January and see a brownish tree, you'll know why!  :)

Video: Pop Up Cake XL Die

Just a quick post today because we are working on painting the master bedroom this weekend.  My husband is having minor surgery next week and since he will be spending a week in bed, we thought it would be nice to finally get the walls repaired and painted.

Since the Pop Up Cake XL die is on sale right now, I wanted to share this video with you!

Window Sheets ... and Sale Reminder!

Just a quick reminder that the 12 Days of Holiday Sales starts TOMORROW! Are you excited?  I know I am! I'll post again in the morning with all the details.

****************** 

Window Sheets
Our window sheets bring a whole new look to your creations. Use them on scrapbook pages, embellish them with Rub-Ons that you use as overlays, or layer them on card stock. Create shapes with the Big Shot die-cut machine, sponge the edges with Craft ink to color, or make see-through boxes. There are countless options! They come in two different thicknesses, as well as a printed option. Window sheets provide a lot of options, and Shannon West is only too happy to share those options with you in this video.

Fifth Avenue Floral Birthday Gift Card Holder



Fifth Avenue Floral Birthday Gift Card Holder


Today's project is a birthday gift card holder This is the same template as the Dasher gift card holder I posted the other day; I just rotated it 90 degrees! The card is held closed with the striped grosgrain ribbon.

I love this card because I used UCLA's school colors.  Go Bruins!


Supply List for the Outside of the Card:
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral (113734, $24.95), Hugs and Wishes (retired)
Classic Ink: So Saffron, Brocade Blue, Going Gray, Bravo Burgundy
Card Stock: Brocade Blue, Confetti White
Accessories: Corner Rounder Punch, Slit Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, 1/2" So Saffron striped grosgrain ribbon

The inside of the card uses some additional supplies ... but you'll need to sign up for the Gift Card Holder class to find out what they are because I don't want to spoil the surprise for the class attendees!

Need a Copy of the Holiday Mini Catalog?



Do you still need a copy of the Holiday Mini Catalog? I have just a few copies left in stock.  The ordering period ends on January 4 so there is still some time left! E-mail me your name and address and I'll drop one in the mailbox ASAP. Thanks!

Clear-Mount Rubber Stamps




Over the past few years, there has been enormous demand from demonstrators and customers alike for a line of repositionable clear-mount rubber stamps. Well, you asked for it, and now you have it! Starting with stamps in the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog and the 2010 Sale-A-Bration Brochure, Stampin' Up! now offers our exclusive stamp art in both traditional wood-mount, and the new clear-mount option.

Our new clear-mount rubber stamps are the result of extensive research with the intent to maintain the very best image quality in the stamping industry, while at the same time offering the ease-of-use and storability inherent in repositionable clear-mount rubber stamps.

Clear-Mount Rubber Stamp Features:
  • Nine different sizes of clear blocks available individually or as a discounted bundle.
  • Blocks have ergonomic grooves on all four sides for easy grip and traditional wood-mount feel.
  • Stamps and blocks are durable and easy to clean with your Stampin' Scrub and Stampin' Mist.
  • Optional image labels on stamp backs let you decide if you want to see the image through the block or not.
  • Tight die-cutting for easy image positioning.
  • Large clear blocks can be used to create collages or spell words with alphabet sets.
  • Stamps store easily in standard, DVD-type cases with artwork on front and spine, making organization easy. 
Are you excited yet?  I know I am!  Mark your calendars: these new products will be available to order starting on January 5, 2010!

Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas

There are only 17 days left until Christmas! Do you still have loved ones to buy gifts for? Here are a few suggestions!
  • My Digital Studio is a great gift for teens! They'll love making scrapbook pages, cards, and calendars for friends using the simple software. Plus when you order this exciting software suite, you'll receive a free Décor Elements piece valued up to $16.95!
  • Simply Sent card kits are a great ready-to-wrap gift and have everything you need to complete 10 cards. This is the perfect last-minute gift for card makers or people you think may like making cards!
  • Anyone who has a Big Shot will want the Alphabet Simple Letters Bigz die. It can cut through a variety of materials including vinyl, chipboard, and felt. This makes a great gift for a seamstress who would like to sew custom appliquéd pieces on her projects, someone who wants to create their own vinyl phrases to personalize her home décor, or any paper crafter who uses letters. And when you purchase this item, you qualify for a free Décor Elements piece valued up to $16.95!
  • Add the final touch to your gift that says "I was thinking of you when I bought this gift" by personalizing it with Décor Elements. Add an Upsy Daisy Décor Elements to a laptop or cut it apart and apply it to a cell phone. Put all of the toys from Santa together in one container and add the So Many Toys Décor Elements to it, or use individual letters to add monograms and names to your gifts. These extra special touches won't go unnoticed. 
Stampin' Up! recommends ordering your gifts by December 15 at 10:50 PM (Pacific) so that they arrive in time for Christmas.  Delivery times will vary depending on where you live; if your personal experience indicates that it takes longer for packages to reach you, you will want to allow a little extra time for shipping during the holidays. All orders we receive by December 15 will be picked, packaged, and delivered to our courier in plenty of time to arrive by December 24. But as you know, we cannot control delivery times; holiday mail volumes are high, so please order as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Mark your calendars - - the 12 Days of Holiday Sales starts on Friday, December 11!

Dasher Christmas Card (PPA19 - Inspiration Challenge)



Dasher Christmas Card


Supply List:

  • Stamp Sets: Dasher (116816, $8.95), Holidays & Wishes (retired)
  • Classic Ink: Soft Suede
  • Card Stock: Soft Suede, Kraft, Very Vanilla
  • Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions Folder
  • Big Shot Machine
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
This is one of my annual holiday cards!  The embossing from the Petals-A-Plenty folder adds an elegant touch - - without adding a lot of extra work.  (I try to keep my holiday card designs as simple as possible.)  I am making at least 40 of these cards but since I am limited by the amount of Soft Suede card stock I have on hand I'll probably end up having multiple Christmas card designs this year!

Just a heads up: The 12 Days of Holiday Sales promotion begins on Friday!  Demonstrators have not been given advance notice as to what will be on sale; however, Stampin' Up! did say there will be "many never-before-discounted items!" How exciting!


Have a wonderful evening!

Tips on Making Your Holiday Cards

When you are designing your Holiday cards this year, you can manage your costs by minimizing the number of layers and embellishments used.  Keep in mind that adding layers adds cost not only in terms of card stock, but also in the amount of adhesive used.

Some things to note about these designs:
  • I used a 2" piece of Sleigh Bells ribbon (folded in half) as an accent.  A roll of this ribbon contains approximately 10 yards, so I can make 180 cards with just a single roll!  Cost per card: $7.95 / 180 cards = $0.04 per card.
  • I used two Stampin' Dimensionals behind the Old Olive circle.  A package contains 300 dimensionals, so I can make 150 cards with a single package.  Cost per card: $3.95 / 150 cards = $0.03 per card.




The technique I used to draw attention to the sleigh portion of the image is called Spotlighting.  Here are the directions for this technique:

  1. Stamp the entire Santa and reindeer image in Soft Suede ink on Very Vanilla card stock. 
  2. Stamp only the sleigh portion of the image using Real Red ink on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Punch out the stamped sleigh image using a 1-1/4" circle punch.
  3. Punch out a 1-3/8" Old Olive circle.
  4. Adhere the 1-1/4" stamped circle onto the 1-3/8" Old Olive circle.
  5. Add Stampin' Dimensionals behind the Old Olive Circle.  Line up over the Soft Suede image.

Supply List:

Stamps: Wandering Words (Holiday Mini)
Classic Ink: Soft Suede, Real Red
Card Stock: Old Olive, Real Red, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Sleigh Bells cotton ribbon (Holiday Mini), 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stapler

That's all for now!  By the way, I ordered the mini catalogs for you this evening!  I can't wait to show all of the new products to you.  I know you are going to love them as much as I do!

FAQs

Q: Are sale items only while supplies last?
A: With the exception of the "Ultimate Stampers' Starter Bundle," all sale prices will be honored through the sales period, even if items go on backorder. Please note: The "Ultimate Stampers' Starter Bundle" is only available in a limited quantity; if we run out of any of the products included in this bundle, the bundle will no longer be available and the sale price will no longer be honored.

Q: Do you anticipate running out of any of the sale items?
A: While we try to accurately predict what will happen during a promotion, sometimes there are unanticipated outcomes. We have run forecasts and built supplies to prepare for this promotion, but just as is the case with any product, sometimes the forecasts don't predict actual behavior and items do go on backorder. With the exception of the "Ultimate Stamper's Starter Bundle," all sale prices will be honored through the sales period even if items go on backorder.
