Simplify Your Christmas Gift Wrapping!

Have you seen the cute Festive Designer Kraft Paper Rolls on pg 10 in the Holiday Mini Catalog? I totally missed them the first few times I looked through it! I am so excited that we have this adorable wrapping paper that is so versatile and can really be used all year long, not just for wrapping gifts but also as background paper on your cards. It is 18 inches by 5 yards so it will last a long time! Check out this quick video from Stampin Up that shows you  some great ideas!

Fifth Avenue Floral

 

Here is a great card created by my so very talented upline, Melissa Ellis. The Fifth Avenue Floral sets is one of my favorites. I really wanted to do a class with just this set and the Urban Oasis paper but I ran out of time. I think I will have to plan one for next month with some of our new papers.

Quilt card


I am doing a quilt card class this week and this is one of the cards we are making.

 

I used the Bella Rose designer paper for the quilt piece and then stamped the rose from A Rose is a Rose set and cut that out. Then I added the organza ribbon and the jumbo grommet.

Flower pot card

 

I had my shoebox swap the other day with my demo friends and this project was designed by my friend Lorrie. I am so glad she brought this one because I had been wanting to make one of these flower pot cards for a couple weeks now and just hadn’t gotten around to it. These daisies totally make it look adorable. I love the daisies #2 die for the Big Shot.  It adds pizzazz to almost any project.

Polished stone technique

 

Here is another card from my shoebox swap the other day. This one was done by my friend Colleen. I hadn’t done the polished stone technique in quite a while so it was fun to try it again. For those of you who don’t know what that is, you need a piece of glossy white cardstock, cottonballs, alcohol and ink refills. You take the cotton ball and get it wet on one side with the alcohol and then drop about 2-3 drops of each refill color onto it. For this one, we used baja breeze, pacific point and the silver. Then just dab it all over the glossy cardstock…do not rub it on…just dab it. The ink will start to run and spread and it looks really cool (like marble). If you are using any of the metallic inks like gold or silver, just spray a little hairspray or acrylic sealer on it when you finish to set the ink.  There is also a step by step tutorial on splitcoast here but I did mine slightly different. I actually put the metallic ink on the cottonball instead of on the paper.

Here is an adorable gift that my friend Gina Dygert made for my friend Lorrie’s birthday. We had a get together to stamp and eat lunch here the other day and Lorrie got some cute gifts. This was one of my favorites. Gina made this with the petal card die and cut 2 opposite sides off to make the flip flops. How cute is that?? That petal card die is good for so many cool projects. It makes the perfect heart too by folding 2 adjacent sides down. She also used the set Crab and Company with the matching wheel.

Gift from a friend….

 

My good friend and Stampin’ UP convention/ leadership roomie Terri Mongeon sent me this adorable gift. It is a cute tote bag filled with the Season of Friendship cards and matching envelopes. There was one card for each season.  I just love it! I am so sad to see this set go. I am really hoping it will make it into the big catalog later this month but I won’t find out til Wednesday when I get the new catalog at Leadership! I am so excited to go to Orlando to see all of my friends from all over the country. It is like a family reunion every few months when we all get together. I met Terri at the Stampin’ UP Leadership conference several years ago and we became instant friends.That is my favorite part about being a Stampin’ Up demonstrator….all of the friends I have made over the years.

These are the matching envelopes!
