I am working on projects to sell at an upcoming Pop-Up shop for the spring. One of my focuses will be on Mother's Day! Sometimes it is tough when selling papercrafts, we have to be different and appealing for customers. I have always wanted to make tea box dispenser and the up coming shop will be perfect to display. You can search all over Pinterest and the internet to find all different instructions. This is super easy to make.
All products and supplies are Stampin Up! I used the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper on page 188 of the current Annual Catalog. This paper is retiring and is now on the while supplies list. You will need a 12x12 piece of card stock cut to 6x12. I chose Daffodil Delight as the box base. I used the Tea Together Stamp set from the Occasions catalog and the matching framelits. ( this stamp set will be carrying over to the new 2019-2020 Annual catalog. How exciting!!!
Using your Stampin Trimmer or Scoring Tool, and the 6" side of the paper at the top. Score at 1". Turn the paper so the 12" is now at the top and score at 3-1/16, 5-3/4, 8-13/16 and 11-1/2" So now we are going to trim, you have 5 sections that measure 3-1/16, 2-1/16, 3-1/16, 2-1/16 and 1/2". Chose the 2-1/16 *that falls in-between the 2-- 3-1/16, you need to score 3/4" above the 1" score line. Cut out the section once scored. Then, cut the 1" flap at the bottom of the 1/2" score line. Cut up to the 1" score line.
For the lid you need a piece of cardstock that measures 4-1/4x4-5/8" Score at 3/4" on all 4 sides. Cut and assemble. This may sound a little confusing so I have added this link to Heidi Baks who goes into detail on YouTube on to make the dispenser. To make the panels, I just measure 1/4" smaller than the box and lid. And decorated with the Tea Together images. The dispenser holds a small box of tea! Adorable!
My card was nice and simple! My card base is Coastal Cabana. My first layer is Whisper White 4x5-1/4" and for the next layer, I used a piece of Designer Paper from the Tea Room pack that measures 3x3-3/4" I stamp flower and Mother's Day greeting, from the Tea Together set and colored the flowers in with Blends (I used Bermuda Bay and Old Olive), I also stamped the same images on Whisper White cardstock for the inside of the card. Before adhering to the card base, I added the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green Reversible Ribbon and finished with a bow. At first I wasn't sure how the ribbon would look. But I was quite pleased! Very pretty in person!!!
Thank you so much for joining this month's blog hop. I hope you like my projects and all the other projects you have seen! I hope you were inspired to create as well! Be sure to visit Melissa's blog next and continue on!

Welcome to our Easter or Pastel Stampin Friends March 2019 Blog Hop!
Thank you for visiting my blog from Cheryl's site, thanks so much for continuing with the Blog Hop. Make sure to check out my blog and at the end click the Inlinkz button to continue with the hop. You will be able to view a list of all the hoppers!
My original sampler displays the 4 seasons. I am currently working on 4 holidays. (Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Christmas). The timing of the hop was perfect for me to finish and share my Easter Sampler. The products used are all Stampin Up and the shadow box frame can be found at Wal-mart under $10 also available in black.
Several stamp sets were used to make the sampler. Abstract Impressions, Beauty Abound, Sitting Pretty, Itty Bitty phrases, Picnic With You, Inspired Events and oops a couple that retired All God's Grace and Hey Chic. The DSP is Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stacks. The cardstock is Powder Pink and Soft Sea Foam. I used a 12x12 Whisper White cardstock and arranged squares evenly. The larger squares are 3x3 and then 2 3/4x 2 3/4. There are so many ideas for samplers on Pinterest. You can search to find designs that you like. My main focus was to make sure that Easter was the focus.. since I already have a spring sampler, I didn't want to make another. I am happy with the turnout! What do you think??
My next project for this hop is a card.
Thank you for joining us on our Stampin Friends Happy Holidays Blog Hop! Holidays? Wasn't it just summer??? For us here in New England we've had our roller coaster of temperatures and rain! I'm done with the rain....lets ask Mother Nature to send the rain to California and help end these horrigic fires! If you've been following along with the hop, you can from Barbara Welch's blog!! Weren't here projects awesome!!!!
During this time of year I begin my teacher gifts. I try to stay ahead of the game on this because, and I am sure you know, you blink and Christmas is here! I've been toying with this project now for over a month ........and I have finally started it! It's going to be one of things that will take some time to get done. My son's classes switch between 2 classrooms so there is 4 teachers total! I am working on a Monthly Calendar!!! So...ya I have to come up with a theme for each month and then X 4. I am also a vendor at our High School fair soooo I am debating making some for there too!!
After several attempts at different layouts I am happy with what I've done so far. AND THANK THE LORD FOR MY CRICUT....It's makes doing multiples so much easier!!! Well all except the snowflakes! This is a new die set from Stampin UP called Snowfall Framelits! I ordered the frames on Amazon, yeah Prime!! I ordered them Monday .....and they arrived today...perfect timing. So for the paper, I have used glitter paper I found at AC Moore, Pool Party, Whisper White and Blushing Bride Cardstock. The project keeps evolving as I continue to work on it. But I so happy with the results.
Ok first of all I want to apologize for my photos they aren't the best. I do have a designated area to take pictures so sometimes there's just a lot going when I need to photograph
My card is from the All is Bright Suite featured in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog. I got the idea right out of the catalog itself! The Designer Series Paper is absolutely beautiful and this card/photo does not do it justice at all! The photographic images in the DSP really makes the card pop! The Buffalo plaid is a new background stamp also in the Holiday Catalog.
I hope you enjoyed my projects and our Happy Holidays Hop

I can't create fast enough to show you just how awesome the new Stampin Up Holiday Catalog is! I could go on and on about the contents! But ….I'd bore you I know! Take a look at this video that highlights some of the really cool products!
Let me know what you think??
I'd love to hear from you - leave a comment
It might be a little warmer today than yesterday! But I'm enjoying the much cooler temperatures. Yesterday on Facebook I shared my projects that were a revisit of the past.
And the last project, which is the candy wrapper, was from an older project...I think I attended the event as a guest and made it! This also uses Howl-o-ween Treat and the Toil & Trouble DSP! I think my favorite part is the googly eyes on the Owl. So easy to make.
First, the measurements will depend on the size of the candy box you are wrapping. I purchased some M&Ms I found at the Dollar Tree.
Choose your wrap, I used 12x12 sheet of Basic Black CS. 3x12 on the 12' side score at 2 1/8, 2 3/4, 9 1/8 and 9 3/4.This will sit lengthwise on the candy box, it will not cover the whole top, we will create belly band.
Again the size of the belly band depends on the size of the candy box. I cut DSP to 4x9. Wrap the DSP around the box, gently creating score lines at the creases. Do not adhere together.
I used Layering Circles and Stitches Shapes for the embellishments. I stamped the owl in basic black and colored the eyes in with Daffodil Delight......do not add the googly eyes until you have cut the belly band.
I added to pieces of ribbon, folded in half to create a loop under my circles. This will allow your to pull the belly band open. Adhere your embellishment to the center of the creases. This will be the top of the belly band. Line up the DSP in your trimmer and cut in have to 2x12. I made sure to choose an image that would cut in half nicely. Then wrap each half of the band around the box and adhere.
Easy as that! Then I added the googly eyes and let them dry.
Here is the original project. Too cute right!! The googly eyes are the best!!!
I hope you try these projects too! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

Welcome to our March Stampin Friends Easter Like Blog Hop! We have 11 talented crafters involved in the hop, including 2 Guest Hoppers.
Please, make sure you check everyone's blogs out. After reading my blog, scroll to the end, and please leave a comment for your chance to win a little blog candy from me!
If you have visited my blog from Twila Davis's site, thanks so much for continuing with the Blog Hop. A full list of Blog Hop participants are listed at the end so you can continue along the hop!
This Month's Guest Hoppers are:
he March's Blog Hop is a bit of challenge, I do not typically make many Easter projects. In my house we have Easter baskets for the kids and we color eggs. But, I usually don't have the need to give gifts or cards. With that said, I do not own a lot of Easter stamps. Sometimes I good challenge is all I need to get motivated to think outside of my comfort and get more creative.
The card I chose to make uses all Stampin Up products.
This card somewhat evolved while I was creating, I have added, removed and changed this along the way! I am happy with the results. I hope you enjoyed it.
The stamped images are from the Sale-a-bration Avant Garden and All God's Grace.
I kept the cardbase Whisper White and I used 2 sheets of DSP from the Serene Scenery paper stack. I cut out an oval on the front of the card using the Stitched Frameleits and did the same to the DSP, making sure it lines up.
I adhere another piece of DSP on the inside, I added the oval left over and adding the cross on top. As you can see from the pictures below I stamped and colored in many flowers before fussy cutting them out. I arranged them like a bouquet overhanging the over cut out!
I added Gold Wink of Stella around the edges of the cross and in the blank spaces between the flowers and leaves. Also on the cross I added strands of gold floss.
My project is something that I had in the works or awhile. I was an avid scrapbooker before kids and that slowly dwindled after each child was born. I've mostly worked on digital as its a little accessible. I haven't dabble in Project Life, frankly because I have so much stuff on hand. But I have decided to try to incorporate a little more traditional scrapbooking back into my crafting.
Most of the page was designed to use the fringe scissors and the Spring image that I printed and cut with my Cricut image. Such a long time ago.
So, I apologize the lighting in my basement is a little off. The colors I used was Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Smoky Slate and Whisper White.
The words has sprung, was printed from my printer and I used a circle punch to cut them out, The banner was cut out using a Cricut cartridge called Pretty Pennants.
The Whisper White was cut using a Creative Memories Cutting template. The grass on the bottom was used but cutting the edges with the Fringe Scissors. I added some bakers twine and rhinestones to finish the pages off.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the projects I shared with you. Leave a comment and I will make sure to choose a winner of some blog candy!!!
