Patriots Day Gift Boxes

A very special recognition for a very special group of people.

My daughter’s teacher asked me to make up some gift boxes for veterans who would be attending their Patriots Day Celebration.  Here’s what I came up with.

I made up 12 boxes and put just a few little goodies and treats inside.  I tied the cellophane bags with a wired ribbon and stuck a small American Flag in the bow.

I made post it note holders using square coasters and binder clips that I had covered with Patriotic Papers.  I found some Hershey Kisses in blue and silver star wrappers for Veteran’s Day.  I made little baggy toppers.

I made covers for the popcorn bags to coordinate with everything in the gift boxes.

The tags were made using the 2-tag die and the big shot.

This was such a fun project to put together!

Happy B*Day Simply Scrappin’

I love simply Scrappin’ Kits — although they make really cute and fun scrapbook pages and projects, they’re not just for scrapbooking!
Just think outside the box and the options are limitless!

Here are a few samples of cards I made using the Simply Scrappin’ Kit Happy B*day….

I’ll be doing a class in June making this cute little box with 8 cards and envelopes–all using the Simply Scrappin’ Kit.

Enjoy your day and Happy Stampin’!

Portfolio Project for August Classes……


We’ve really enjoyed doing this beautiful card portfolio in my classes this month.  I have a couple of more classes before the end of the month, if you’re interested in coming and making your own, let me know by sending me an e-mail.

Out of town?  Not a problem, this can be a “class by mail”, send me an e-mail for the details!

The original design came from Andrea Walford. Check out her website at  Sunny Stampin’ Inc. She has lots of great ideas and fun tutorials.

This project uses Stampin’ Up!’s Simple Friendship Stamp Set.  And features 4 matching note cards with a place to put the envelopes and postage stamps.

The Stampin’ Up! colors used are Chocolate Chip, Kraft and Very Vanilla, with Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper.

I’ll post pictures of the 4 cards tomorrow.

Until then…..Have a Happy Day!  🙂

Stamp Camp Projects…..

I wanted to share with you a few of the stamp camp projects we did last weekend.  This was most definitely a team effort!  We have a great team of very talented and creative demonstrators.  We met on a couple of different days planning and designing these projects.

These projects were truly a group effort!

Here are 3 of the 5 projects we did.

This card uses the “Yummy” Stamp set that is available free!  For details, click on the Sale-a-Bration catalog in the left column.

The ceramic pot is decorated with a piece of decor vinyl, it was die cut using our Big Shot and the little leaves sizzlet die.  Teri Wells is our Decor Elements Expert!

The tumbled marble tile is stamped with classic ink using the “Rose is a Rose” Stamp set.

This card was designed by Lucy….using the Sale-a-Bration Yummy Stamp Set.

It’s a little difficult to see in the picture, the night of navy strip is rolled with “Bella’s Border” Stampin’ Around Wheel and Versamark.

  • Classic Ink Pads:  Old Olive, Night of Navy, Versa Mark
  • Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Night of Navy, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Textured Baja Breeze, Urban Garden Designer Series Paper
  • Embellishments and Accessories:”Flower, Daisies #2 Bigz die, Big Shot, Jumbo Eyelet (Pewter), Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, Flower Fusion (Baja Breeze), Metallic Eyelet, Scallop Edge Punch, Color Spritzer, Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker

This was a fun card.   There are a lot of elements to it, but nothing really difficult.

I’m loving all little Birds, the new on board products and the new ribbon originals!!

This card uses the On Board “So Tweet”, and orange rick rack from the ribbon originals Pig Tails.  After experimenting with several different methods of coloring the bird and the flower, we actually found that we liked the look of the classic ink on the on board the best.  We used sponge daubers with the ink pads to apply the color.

Here’s a picture showing the inside.

  • Stamp Sets:  Cheep Talk, Sweet Serendipity
  • Classic Ink Pads: Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Summer Sun, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip
