The Gang’s All Meer Stamp Set is a fun one to bring out the smiles and you can see its versatility with our projects here. To create a darling valentine, we paired the set with From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Heart Punch Pack, and the Stitched Be Mine Dies. The beautiful For You card shows how to pair sentiments with embellishments, in this case, the Peaceful Poppies Elements. And on our cute birthday box, we combined the stamp set with the Bonanza Dies. There are so many ways to share creativity—and Sale-A-Bration!

Today I created two fun projects for an upcoming card club! Since Valentine’s Day is a few weeks away, I wanted to focus and get a little head start.
My projects feature Stampin Ups new From the Heart Suite! This gorgeous suite can be found in the new 2020 Mini Catalog! The DSP is beautiful and several of the sheets have a foiled appearance! And best of all you can use the Heart Punch Pack to punch out several of the hearts on the paper!
The card was created using a sheet of Real Red cardstock cut to 5.5x8.5 and scored on the 8.5 side at 4 1/4. I added a layer of DSP on top that measures 4x5 1/4 next I took another piece of DSP and cut a frame using 2 different sizes of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I cut out several hearts using the Heart Punch Pack. On one of the red hearts, I stamped the dotted outline from the Heartfelt Stamp set in Real Red, the punches it out nd 2 of the hearts are punched out right from the DSP! So easy! The Happy Valentines Day greeting is from the Meant to Be stamp set, which is in the current annual catalog!
This card was so simple to make and so quick that I was Able to
create multiples fast.
Have you tried the Copper Dotted Treat bags?? They are such pretty bags! I don’t know why I waited to use them! Similar to the card, I punched out a bunch of different hearts from the DSP and cardstock and I used the same greeting! I added a little Valentine Cheez-it snack that I found at Target. They are mini bags but so cute!!! Depending on who I give the bags to I might fill with candy or cookies too!! These bags are a great size at 4 3/4x 6 1/2 and are food safe!! I used a retired twine to make the bow and I came across these mini clothes pins I had on hand! I either purchased these at Walmart or A.C. Moore.
What do you think?
Really cute and easy to make right??

I love making little treats to give teachers, family, friends. The hand sanitizers from Bath & Body Works are perfect for this! They are affordable, have cute designs, smell amazing and everyone loves them!
You can find many designs if you search Google or Pinterest. But I stick with this type of box to hold them! I like how it fits and you still have space to decorate!
To make the box, you will need a piece of cardstock that measures 3 3/4" x 4 3/4".
Score it on the 3 3/4" side at 1" and 2 3/4". Then turn the paper to the 4 3/4" size and score at 1" & 2"
Fold all the score lines.
On the sides that measure 4 3/4", cut the score lines to create tabs.
Fold the middle tabs in and adhere the bottom tabs on the outside to create the box.
The you going to cut at a diagonal from the top of the box side down to the top of the tabs. (My picture shows the completed box, but hopefully this makes sense) Contact me with any questions.
I chose to match up the box to the style of the sanitizer, this one was called Vampire Blood. So I used a pieces of Real Red cardstock (measure 1"x6" and 1 3/4"x2 1/2") and embossed the pieces with the new Stampin Up embossing folder called Stylish Scroll. I then sponged the edges with Basic Black to give it an old look. The Vampire stamp is also from Stampin Up the stamp set is Spooktacular Bash. I made a layer by cutting the Vampire out and the greeting using a framelit from Stampin Up's Ornate Frames Dies. Added glue dots to the top of the greeting so you can lift the Vampire up. I adhered them to another die from the same size! Love it!!
I also completed another set for the Ghoul Friends scent. I used the Stampin Up stamp set Spooky Fun & Halloween Scenes Dies. I think I prefer the witch flying across the moon, so I will up the rest of the boxes and finish them that way!!!
I hope you enjoyed this project!
Let me know what you think!
Happy Halloween & Happy Stampin'

Welcome to our Stampin Friends June Summertime Blog Hop. I am so excited to share this month! School is out and sports are over! So I was able to design a little more this month, than I normally have time for!
As you can tell, this month's hop showcases projects that have a summertime theme! Be sure to check out all our wonderful crafters and their amazing projects. Did you come from Maureen Rauchfuss's blog? Her projects were awesome! Be sure to continue to Barbara Welch's blog once you have finished viewing mine!!!
I am really happy with my project this month and I hope you enjoy! I made a travel album from brown paper lunch bags. Super easy! The projects feature products from the Come Sail Away Suite! Brand new in our Stampin Up Annual Catalog. I used coordinating cardstock colors; Balmy Blue, Basic Black, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Soft Suede and Whisper White.
The first thing you need to do is figure out how many bags thick you want to make your album. I used 5 brown bags.
Then fold each bag in half and make sure you burnish the folds so the bags sit flat! Lay them one on top of the other alternating top and bottom of the bags. Once they are stacked and folded (make sure they all line up on edges or when you punch your holes the bags will be off), use a heavy duty hole punch or Cropidile. I measured from the top and bottom about 1" in and punched.
Now for decorating I used the Come Sail Away Memories and More Cards, as well as the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. I basically looked through the cards to see what I wanted to use and then just went from there creating photo & journal layouts!
Now, let's not forgot that with the bags folded in half, the top of the bags (the open ends) become a pocket. You can leave them empty, but what fun is that! I created 5 cards for the 5 pockets. Each card is a 5x5 piece of cardstock. I used the Circle Tag Punch to create the tabs on the ends so the cards can slide in and out of the pocket easily! Again, some of the cards have parts that flip up or out!
You may have noticed on 3 of the cards there are pockets. I thought since this was to be a keepsake from traveling, you may want to have a place for some memorabilia. Creating the pockets was super easy.
Lets start with the black card.
To make the pocket, I took a piece of transparency (you can find these at office supplies stores) and cut it to 4 1/2x4 3/4. I cut a half circle at the "top" of one side. The reason I didn't cut it square is that you have a little more room to add things in and out. I added Tear N Tape to 3 sides and adhered to card.
To make the pockets on the Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow cards;
2- 3x6 Gussetted Cello Bags
2- small Velcro dots.
Fold each bag, on the opened side, about 1"-1 1/4" down. Cut along the fold, be sure to leave 1 side still on (this is the closure to the pocket)SEE PICTURE 2 BELOW. Add the velcro dots. I then took a different color cardstock than the card base and cut it to the size of the pocket (you could skip this step and just adhere it right to the pocket.
Some of the decorating throughout the album is from the Memories & More cards as well as a few stamped images from the Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set cut out with the Smooth Sailing Dies. The album is bound together by Binder Rings, you can find these at Walmart and other office supply store. The size you need will depend on how thick you made your album. I tied on some retired ribbon scraps to the binder rings to add a little more embellishment.
