Welcome back to my From the Heart Suite series. Today I have two containers, the first is based on a projectby Sam from MixedUpCraft and the second is the Mini Curvy keepsake box. The bag is made from two 6″ x 6″ pieces of paper so the pattern direction can remain upright, you can’t really tell in these photos unless you look very closely at the inside. You can also squeeze the sides of the bag together and fold it up. So cute!
I love the Northern Lights technique. I was inspired to create this card when I saw one by Mitosu Crafts. You can see in the photo more than in person that you really want to allow the Silver Shimmer ink to dry before rubbing over it. 🙂 The stars in the sky are Frost White Shimmer paint that I splattered on the background.
Here is the first of two treat containers I created for Demos Galore, I followed the video over at CreateWithDee.com. One change I would make to her version is to use the Tear & Tape next to the folds and not the edges of the sides, it doesn’t gap then.
I needed to get treats for the basket and since I was only going to Costco before Demos Galore, I have a really big bag of Ghiradelli to work through. 🙂
My fellow demonstrators are just such generous people. I received the following gifts in Milwaukee (#OnStage2018) and I wanted to share them with you. Tomorrow I plan to show you the swaps I received. Fingers crossed because the shelf that holds my dies above my Big Shot fell down and I need to get that fixed. 😦
This first one is from Cheryl Lee (my direct upline) for my promotion to Silver.
Cheryl also gave me these gifts.
This was from Rachel Tessman (Cheryl’s upline). There are chocolates inside. Yum!
On Tuesday night I got to go to Rachel Tessman’s house for a Stampers With ARt gift exchange. I always have such a fun time with this group of stampers.
Here is what I made for the gift exchange, on Tuesday I’ll post what I got there.
I followed the instructions for the explosion box from here.
For the Santa bag:
Cut the Real Red Cardstock to 7 3/4″ x 12″. Score along the long edge at 3″, 5 3/4″, 8 3/4″, 11 1/2″. Score along the short side at 5″.
I created the belt buckle with the Everyday Label Punch. For the gold foil piece, I punched out a lable and then stuck it back in to shorten it. For the basic black piece, I started with a 1″ wide piece of cardstock and lined it up with the interior points on the punch. The gold foil is again left over from the Watercolor Christmas kit but you can use gold foil sheets also.
I used the 1/8″ circle punch for the ribbon holes but the 1/16″ would be much better. I had to use some beads to keep the ribbon from coming out. I don’t remember which circle punch I used to hold the Eos but it was a little too small. Also, I added a 1/2″ to the Eos holder part so I could fold the cardstock under and adhere it to the box.
The Holiday Catalog goes live tomorrow but here are a few more previews to get you excited.
This past Saturday I was at a gathering of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and we made these fun projects. Susan Campfield always has great gatherings for her demonstrators.
This first card uses the Two-Tiered Eclipse technique. Check out Susan’s post about the technique here.
These cute little guys come from a new stamp and framelit set in the Holiday Catalog. Check out Susan’s post here about them. Just a note on them, if you don’t stamp a clean image, this is one time you can’t just flip the paper over. Check out my snowman. 🙂
And for the last project, it’s using some of the new Quilted Christmas paper from the Holiday catalog and is a fun fold.
We used an 8″ x 8″ piece of Whisper White cardstock to make this. See below for scoring info. The diagonals are made using a ruler between the score lines at 4″. The blue lines fold mountain style and the others are all valley folds.
