Stampin'Up Party Treat Tags

Hello and Welcome to my Blog!
Today I am sharing these Party Treat Tags made with some of my favorite Stampin'Up accessories and ribbons. The Blushing Bride 1/4" Cotton ribbon, the Pool Party 3/8" Glitter ribbon and the Honeycomb embellishments along with the Ornate Tag topper are retiring and are only available until May 31, 2016. This idea was inspired by Nadine Koller a Stampin'Up Demonstrator in Germany, I just made a few changes to the tags I needed for my treats.
I used one of the Sale-A-Bration 2016 free stamp sets called Honeycomb Happiness which coordinates really well with the accessories and the treats!
The treat tags are super cute and very easy to make, also they are so versatile as you can use them for Birthday Parties, Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, First Communion, Easter, Etc.

These ribbons are so unique, soft and easy to work with, even the glimmer ribbon has a soft texture and they make any project look so glamorous !

Paper Pumpkin April 2016 Lovely Little Wreath Alternatives

Hello and Welcome to my Blog,
Today I am sharing the Paper Pumpkin April 2016 Lovely Little Wreath project alternative. But first here is the video tutorial for this project kit.

 I really love the way the little wreath looks just as they designed it, however I wanted to add just a little color by using the minimum extra supplies, so this is what I came out with.

The kit includes supplies to make 6 gift tags and 4 frame tags, I decided to make a box to store the tags, see below for instructions to build this box.

The Box finished size is 3-3/4 wide X 2-1/2 tall and 1-1/4 depth

Box instructions:
I used the Envelope Punch Board first 1) Trim your paper to 7″ x 7″ and line up the top left corner of your paper to the 3″ mark on the board (DON'T PUNCH) Score your paper  and rotate it counter clockwise 90 degrees. Line up the score line you just made with the score guide and score. Repeat this until you’ve score all four sides of the paper.
2) After you finish scoring the fourth side, scoot the top left corner of the paper to the 2″ mark on the board and score. Rotate the paper 90 degrees counter clockwise, line up the score line you just made with the score guide and score again. (Be sure you use the newest score line and not the previous ones when aligning your paper with the score guide.)
3) Repeat the scoring process until all four sides are scored. You should now have 8 score lines on your paper.
 Cut your scored paper as shown in the photo below to create a box template. Round the corner of what will be the top panel (the panel without any tabs).
Now is time to stamp your box template then place adhesive on the tabs and assemble the box.

This month's Paper Pumpkin included an extra set of Stamps for Subscribers called "All About Everything" , please come back and visit my blog to see what I have created with this stamp set :)
I hope you like this project as much as I do.  If you would like to Subscribe to Paper Pumpkin and join the Fun please click HERE. Chose a demonstrator or I will be so happy if you can pick me as your demonstrator: Olga Cavanaugh.

Stampin'Up Mother's Day Gift Set

Hello and Welcome to my Blog,
Today I would like to share with you a Mother's Day Gift set made with the Stampin'Up Have A Cuppa Suite. This collection has all you need to create amazing and unique gift sets to celebrate Moms, Sisters, and Friends!
The Tea cups and kettles as well as the little spoons and tiny lemon slices are super cute and perfect to embellish any project. I created a gift set that includes a Tea towel, Assorted Tea packets and a set of 4 Note Cards with Envelopes.
This is a square box with lid that measures 6-1/2 X 6-1/2 finished. You can watch a video tutorial by Pootles HERE to learn how to make this box. On my box I just changed the scoring to be at 2-3/4.

I added dividers to separate the items and to have them more organized. 
Top Divider: Cut a piece of card stock 5-1/4 X 9-1/2 and score on long side at 2-1/2, 4, 5-1/2. 
Bottom Divider: Cut a piece of card stock 4-1/2 X 6-1/2 and score on short side at 1/2, 2, 3-1/2.

The Tea holders were made with the Envelope Punch Board. My tea packets needed an envelope size 3-1/4 X 2-3/4. I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper 5X5 inches and scored it at 2-1/4 to build the little envelope.

The following are the 4 note cards. I kept them as simple as possible but yet showcasing as many of the elements in this collection, also they fit perfectly fine in the envelopes.

Supplies Used:
A Nice Cuppa Bundle #141074
Have a Cuppa Designer Series Paper # 140567
Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched ribbon # 140569
Have a Cuppa Embellishments # 140570
Have a Cuppa card stock pack # 140568
Note Card and Envelopes Whisper White # 131527
Sequin Trim Bermuda Bay # 137910
White Embossing Powder
Whisper White Bakers twine
Oval Collection Framelits # 129381
Gift Bow Bigz # 129977
Rhinestone Basic Jewels # 119246
Bermuda Bay Ink pad

I hope you liked this gift set and found some inspiration to create your own. I am planning to make more sets like this using other coordinating colors and I hope my recipients like them as much as I do :)
