November D’s Stamping Team USA Christmas

Hello everyone! Welcome to D’s Stapming Team USA Blog Hop! I am so happy to have you here, from either my very best friend Nichole’s blog or if you happen to be starting here.
I am so honored to be a guest hopper again this month. 

This month we are sharing some amazing Christmas creations. I love Christmas time and all the crafting fun to be had at this time of year. Today my project is a gift box that I created for our Team Inking Everything Christmas Party – happening right now!! At our team party every year the contents of the package are not as important as the wrap so we all try to go over the top when we can!!

This project was inspired by a box found in Becky Robert’s 12 Days of Christmas 2015. I love 3-D items so much and am always trying to find fun and creative projects to make, CASE and share! 
This box measures 5 1/2″ X 2 1/2″ when completed and is perfect for small gifts or treats.
 The glimmer paper snowflakes make a wonderful embellishment when attached to the silver cord on both sides with glue dots. I love the detail they add to this project overall.
Now – it’s time for my apology. I was in the crafting zone when I created this project and wasn’t thinking when I grabbed my favorite snowflake set to add a little design to the Designer Series Paper. Once I was finished I realized that it is a set that is no longer available for sale directly through Stampin’ Up! I am so sorry to do that to you guys! Please forgive my blogging faux pas! 
Thank you so much for stopping by today! It’s time to hop on over to Tina’s blog and she was she has for us. I would love to know what you think of my project, so please me some blog love in the comments!

Gifts for Teachers

Happy November everyone! I love this month so much. Fall leaves, pumpkin everything, Thanksgiving and Giving Thanks.  
Today’s post is one that I had meant to share a few weeks ago, and somehow it got missed. It is still fall related because we just started a new homeschool co-op this fall. I always love to give the other moms who teach my kids little treats throughout the year and this is what we started off with.
This project was inspired by a tutorial my upline created and as soon as I saw the little clipboards, I knew I had to make some of them. Are they not the cutest thing ever!!!
I packaged these back to back in a little cello bag and tied the top with some retired ribbon (oops! It was the only one I had that matched)
Thanks for stopping my today. I would love to know what you think of the project – leave me a comment! You can subscribe to the blog and never miss another post.
Have a great Monday!

October D’s Stamping Team USA Give Thanks

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be a guest hopper this month for Darla Robert’s team blog hop. Thank you so much for having me!
Today we are giving thanks for the many blessing we have in our life. I know for my family, we have so much to Give Thanks for.
For this hop, I really wanted to make a card that was quick and easy but also fun. I found these cute little punch art pumpkins on Pinterest (where else!) and knew that I needed to make some while it was still Fall. I found that they can be made with either an oval or a circle punch and go together in a snap. I paired them with the gorgeous plaid paper from the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper so they can really stand out as the focual point of the card. I made pumpkins in three differenct sizes just to show how easy ther are. I used two on my card and then created a cute little treat with the last one.

Now, it’s time to hop on over to Kay’s blog and see what she has made this month. Thanks so much for hopping by. Please leave me some love in the form of a coment andy You can subscribe to my blog so that you never miss a post

Tic Tac Tutorial

Hello friends! It’s been a busy 1st week of September around these parts. Birthdays, youth outreach events, getting caught up from vacation and then friends in town for the holiday weekend. I hope that things have been going well for you! 

In July, I participated in a Treat Swap at Convention in Salt Lake City. My treat holder was an original creation and I have had some requests for directions so today I present to you my very first tutorial!!!! Creating something like a tutorial was very overwhelming for me and I decided I just needed to face my fears and do it. So, without further ado…..
Start with a piece of card stock measuring 4.5″ X 6″
  Using your Simply Scored Scoring Tool, score the short side of your card stock at 3/4″ and 3-3/4″
 then score the long side of your card stock at 5/8″, 1-3/8″, 3-3/8″ and 4″
 Cut some coordinating Designer Series Paper so that you have the following
2 at 2-3/4″ X 1-3/4″
2 at 1/2″ X 1-3/4″
1 at 1/2″ X 2-3/4″
You will also need a piece of coordinating card stock cut to 3/8″ X 2-1/2″ and scored at 1/2″, 3/4″, 1-3/4″ and 2″

Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, adhere the designer series paper to the card stock, leaving the top side sections blank. These are folded in and never seen or cut away.
 Fold along all score lines and crease using your bone folder.

Using your paper snips, cut on the first and second horizontal score lines from the bottom up to the vertical score line and cut a small V into each to make folding easier. Repeat on the opposite side. 
Next, cut away the top two side sections on the score lines on each side of the box. 
When you are done, your box should look like this:
Using your Liquid glue you can now assemble the box, fold your handle and attach to the top.
Cut a 5/8″ Velcro circle into quarters

Attach the soft side of the velcro to the lid of your box and fold over to find the proper placement of the rough side. Press firmly to make sure that each half is securely in place.
 Voila! Your box is now complete!! Just add Tic Tac’s!

I hope that you love this project as much as I do. If you would like a printable version of the tutorial, click here

ICS Blog Hop – Tis The Season

Hello everyone and welcome to the monthly Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop! 
You may have arrived from Deb’s blog, or are just starting the hop here. Either way I am so glad you are here!

It is amazing how fast the Christmas season came upon us and now we are more than 1/2 way through it. If you are like me, you might be looking for some cute gift packaging ideas.  That is what I have to share with you today. My project was created using the Take Out Boxes, All is Calm DSP, some ribbon, a few tags and some pretty, pretty silver accents. 

The  ribbon and tags is designed to slide off the box easily and remain intact and beautiful! The belly band can then be gently removed and the box opened. I love these contemporary colors of blues, greens and silver at Christmas time. I hope you enjoy this project and it inspires you to create unique gift packaging this holiday season.

Now, you get to hop on over to Olivia’s blog and see what she has in store for you. I am sure it is going to be adorable! Thank you so much for stopping by. Be sure to leave me a note telling me what you thought of my project and please subscribe to my blog so that you never miss a post!
