Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek - Birthday Blooms set

  Occasions-sale-a-bration-catalogs-pattystamps-stampin-up-sneak-peek

I am excited to share another Sneak Peek Sunday project with you, showcasing some upcoming products in the 2016 Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog!! (see the info at the bottom of this post for receiving this new catalog!)

These are some of the cards that I swapped in San Diego at the OnStage event earlier this month, and they feature a Sneak Peek of a new stamp set and new floral paper - we  received these in September at the 2015 Founder's Circle event.

Stampin Up! Birthday Blooms stamp set and Birthday Bouquet designer paper NEW from the Occasions 2016 catalog.  I made these cards for our OnStage event in San Diego. Birthday, friend and for you greetings included in the stamp set.

  • New Stamp Set: Birthday Blossoms, pg 9 Occasions catalog (used it to stamp the background, and the greetings)
  • New Paper: Birthday Bouquet Designer Paper, pg 9 Occasions catalog (punched circle in the center of the metallic foil doily)

This gives you a little sneak peek of the new set and Birthday Bouquet designer paper (punched with the 2" circle punch)... they may as well have just named it the Patty Bennett Flower Garden paper... I am in LOVE with it!  :)

 

Stampin' Tip!

Grab your pretty Sharpie Markers and color the Iced Rhinestones.. so pretty!

I just colored the centers so that the ring of rhinestones around the center stone are still clear and very sparkly!

Stamping Tip:  Color the centers of your Iced Rhinestones from Stampin' Up! with Sharpie markers for a custom colored embellishment on your handstamped card or handcrafted project.

I think the Banner Triple punch is one of my stampin' best friends.. I use it so often!  I love the birthday banner on this card!

Stampin Up! Birthday Blooms stamp set and Birthday Bouquet designer paper NEW from the Occasions 2016 catalog.  I made these cards for our OnStage event in San Diego. Birthday, friend and for you greetings included in the stamp set.

I made 4 different versions of this card.. the card below uses 2 different sizes of doilies from the Metallic Foil Doilies package.. both in Silver.. I love the pop and the way it works with the rhinestones!

Stampin Up! Birthday Blooms stamp set and Birthday Bouquet designer paper NEW from the Occasions 2016 catalog.  I made these cards for our OnStage event in San Diego. Birthday, friend and for you greetings included in the stamp set.

I shared 2 of the versions of this card at the top of my blog post, and here are the other 2 versions:

Stampin Up! Birthday Blooms stamp set and Birthday Bouquet designer paper NEW from the Occasions 2016 catalog.  I made these cards for our OnStage event in San Diego. Birthday, friend and for you greetings included in the stamp set.

All 4 cards had a piece of the In Color Lace on them.. I used Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder lace and cardstock on these cards.  I would not have thought to put them together but they are both featured in the designer paper pack, so I used them!! Cool combo, don't you think?

I am so glad I am a Paper Pumpkin subscriber!!  I have thoroughly enjoyed all the recent monthly kits!!  The November Kit is so timely.. I was excited to make up  a batch of QUICK Christmas cards with this kit.. and of course I put my own little twist on some of them...

  Cut Poinsettias out of the Home for Christmas paper from Stampin' UP! for great card and Christmas craft embellishments!

 I grabbed my wonderful Paper Snips and cut out poinsettia flowers from the Home for Christmas designer series paper pack (pg 9 in the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog).  I didn't even use up 1/2 a sheet and was able to add 1 or 2 poinsettias to each of the 5 cards with this design.

Stampin' UP! Paper Pumpkin Christmas Card Kit, November 2015.  Create 10 Christmas Cards with supplies in the kit including a great stamp set to use over and over.  I added cut out poinsettias from the Home for Christmas designer paper pack - Holiday catalog 2015 for this alternate design idea.

803 Photos from San Diego

 

Don't worry... I'm not boring you with all 803 photos from our trip to San Diego... but that's how many I took!  Surprisingly that was actually a really low number for me for a week, but I was really also trying to really live each moment on the trip and not live it through the camera lens.  My fellow photographers will get what I mean. :)

November 2015 San Diego Bennett Family Adventures:

So our amazing trip consisted of several days of wonderful sight seeing, a day at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event (like a one-day mini-convention), a 2 hour drive to visit with my family in Pasadena, and lots and lots of walking around downtown San Diego.

Highlights were visits to:  The Hotel del Coronado, walking around and eating at Seaport Village, all day at the USS Midway aircraft carrier museum, several hours visiting museums and gardens at Balboa Park, and Eric and Jason joining me for my Million Dollars in sales recognition at the OnStage event at the convention center!

Day 1:

Flying Southwest Airlines from home (San Francisco Bay Area) to San Diego. 

I never tire of taking photos of the San Francisco bay from the plane.. we are blessed to live in a beautiful state!!!  The flight home was "quick" since I had my new Occasions catalog and Sale a Bration brochure with me from the OnStage event!! eeks!!  wait til you see it!! :)

San diego-pattystamps-flight-oakland-onstage-stampin-up

We enjoyed the week at the Embassy Suites San Diego Bay Downtown.. lovely, accommodating staff and upgraded corner suite room!  whohoo!  We walked across the street from our hotel to the Seaport Village area to shop and eat dinner.  We had not been there for about 18 years, so it was fun to revisit such a delightful area!  We had dinner with our friends Cindee and Dave!

San diego-pattystamps-seaport-village-lights-night

Day 2:

We could not have asked for better weather while in San Diego.. it hovered around 72 degrees, blue skies, and gorgeous!! yay!! 

Day 2 began with our wonderful free Embassy Suites breakfast (nothing like having someone make you an omelette, cut up your fruit and brew your coffee every morning!) :)  THEN.. I got to do something that's been on my bucket list FOREVER..

The Hotel del Coronado!  What a stunning place.. magical, and HUGE!

San-diego-hotel-del-coronado-pattystamps

Our rental car was a dreamy sports car - Dodge Challenger... let's just say it goes plenty fast (no, I didn't get a ticket). :) 

The Hotel del Coronado is an amazing place, built in the 1880's and added on to as the years went on.  I could have probably spent 3 days there just exploring it all!  With my background in architecture and engineering, places like this are really fascinating to me!  And to think of all the history and all the people who have been through those halls, shops, restaurants, walked on the same beach... amazing!

San-diego-hotel-del-coronado-pattystamps-2

Day 3:

We walked the 2 blocks from our downtown hotel to the USS Midway aircraft carrier museum.  What a super fascinating experience!! The docents there have hundreds and thousands of volunteer hours, and they are so happy to tell you all about the planes they flew, the wars they were in, and the ships they served on.  I was so thankful for each and every one of them!

San-diego-uss-midway-pattystamps-2

My favorite parts were the 2 presentations on deck telling all about the launching of the planes off the deck and the landings.. we heard all the details right down to the hand signals from the men on deck.  I could have stayed there another entire day! 

We were really struck by the cramped quarters, the small bunks, the low ceilings and of course the lack of windows.  What a sacrifice the men and women make when they serve on a ship like that!

San-diego-uss-midway-pattystamps-1

By the way.. .none of these photos have been edited.. .yes, the sky WAS that blue and the weather was that amazing! :)


Day 4:

We drove our sporty Charger a couple miles to Balboa Park where there are dozens of museums, gardens, exhibits, and miles of trails to walk.  I had done a little research ahead of time and wanted to be sure to stop in the Botanical building!
 

  San-diego-balboa-park-botanical-building-pattystamps

It was mostly ferns and palms, but I did manage to find several gorgeous orchids and tropical flowers to photograph!  We found a nice lady who took our photo, too!  She was actually from our area up here and had just moved to San Diego.. small world!

We toured a few of the museums.. we found it pretty pricey - $12 to $19 per museum per person.. if you go, just plan to buy the 1 day pass.  We enjoyed the Air and Space museum, where exhibits go from Kitty Hawk all the way to the Blue Angels and everything in between. I especially loved the Pan Am stewardess models.. sure brought back memories of the 60's and 70's!

San-diego-air-space-museum-balboa-park-pattystamps

Do you think I should enlist?  I am not sure if those fatigues are a good look for me...

We spent several hours walking around the grounds and taking photos of the beautiful Spanish architecture.  And yes, the sky was that blue!!

San-diego-balboa-park-architecture-pattystamps

That evening, there was a Stampin' Up! event for the leaders in the company.  Wendy and Cindee (Leaders from my Luv 2 Stamp Group) were there with me, and my upline Sandy was there as well.

  San-diego-centrestage-leader-dinner-stampin-up

The meal was amazing.. wonderful pear salad, chicken and rice entree and a YUMMO chocolate dessert!

 

Day 5:

OnStage event/San Diego

Stampin' Up! tried out something new this year.. they had a big 3 day event live in Brussels and then they had 1-day local events all over the world for local demonstrators to attend.  We opted for the San Diego event, (thus our week in San Diego) and I knew ahead of time that they were going to be recognizing my recent $1 million in sales achievement, so they invited my hubby and son to come in for that portion of the morning.  Jason and Eric are on stage with me here as Chad announced my accomplishment!  That moment meant the world to me to have them by my side!!!!!

San-diego-onstage-2015-stampin-up-pattystamps-samples

The rest of the day consisted of lots of information and samples showcasing the upcoming 2016 Occasions catalog and Sale a Bration event, both going live for customers on Jan. 5, 2016.  You can see lots of sneak peeks here as well as one on my blog last Sunday (here).

San-diego-onstage-2015-stampin-up-pattystamps-friends

Members of my Luv 2 Stamp Group who attended this event in San Diego: ChrisAnn, Kim, Cindee, Carrie, Bonnie, Wendy, Holly, Darlene, Diann, Lorita, and Marlene.  After the event, 16 of us (included some spouses) went to dinner in Seaport Village.. it was a fabulous day... oh.. did I mention they gave us a copy of the Occasions and Sale a Bration catalog!?  EEEEEKKKK!!!! :)

Day 6:

Since we were only 2+ hours south of Pasadena where I was born and raised, we made a quick trip up there in our fun Charger rental car to see my daddy and his wife Joan.  My brother, his wife, 3 of their kids and their 2 grandkids came up too and we had a great day of visiting and meals out.

San-diego-pasasdena-pattystamps-dad

You may know from my previous blog posts that my dad is an amazing watercolor artist.. the painting above is one of his recent masterpieces!

OK, whew.. I told you I wasn't going to bore you with 803 pix, but that WAS a lot.. thanks for sticking with me!  Hope you enjoyed the travel log of our San Diego adventures!

I have a fun Video Tutorial for you today!!  See below for the Note Card Holder Video!

I saw this fun project on Di Barnes blog and wanted to give it a try.  It uses one 12x12 sheet of cardstock, you measure, score and fold and you get this adorable little folder to put whatever you want inside... photos, gift cards, note cards, tickets, Project Life cards.. you name it!

So I made this one using her instructions and the Season of Cheer 12x12 paper:

Make a Note Card Holder from one 12x12 by scoring and folding! No Cutting Required! No Glue Required! Christmas Cuties stamped image colored with Copic Markers.  Stampin' UP! Season of Cheer paper is from the 2015 Holiday Catalog.

I made a tag with the Christmas Cuties stamped image that I colored with my Copic Markers.

I wanted to fill it with note cards, but it only really holds 2 note cards:

Use Stampin' UP! Season of Cheer 12x12 paper to create this Note Card holder featuring Flurry of Wishes stamp set and Snow Flurry snowflake punch!

So, you can watch the video below and see how I made the holder a little differently to hold 4 note cards with envelopes!

 

If you are unable to view the video, watch it HERE on my YouTube channel.

I decorated the note cards with some Season of Cheer paper and stamped snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set.

I wanted a holder just like this but with "thickness" to it so that it would hold a set of 4 note cards.. so, I adapted Di's instructions and instead of the score mark at 6", I scored at 5-3/4" and 6-1/4".. that gave it a 1/2" thickness!! Voila!! :)

Check out Di's blog post and download her instructions HERE and then you'll see what I mean about scoring it in 2 places instead of at 6".  I also explain it in the video above.

Create a Note Card Holder from one 12x12 piece of designer paper or cardstock.  Holds Note Cards, photos, Family Christmas letter, gift cards, tickets, project life cards, etc.

You can see the "thickness" in the photo above.. that is how I altered my version of this project.

Create a fun gift package to hold note cards, photos, letters, tickets, gift cards, etc., out of one 12x12!  Stampin' UP! Home for Christmas and Season of Cheer paper are perfect for this project. Grab your Simply Scored board and bone folder too!

Isn't that little reindeer and tree too cute??  It was actually a sweet little 3x3 card from Eva Davalos and I mounted it onto my note card holder!!! :)

So now the holder easily holds 4 note cards and 4 envelopes!

For the sets of 4 note cards in each holder, I used the Stampin' UP!

Botanical Gardens Sneak Peek Sunday with Patty

 

 (reminder>> Online Extravaganza Sale

Starts tomorrow, Monday, Nov. 23. CLICK for info)

 

Occasions-sale-a-bration-catalogs-pattystamps-stampin-up-sneak-peek

Hands Down, Jumping Up & Down, Happy Dance, and all that jazz, this Botanical Gardens suite of products in the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2016 Occasions catalog is my FAVORITE!!  We saw this wonderful stamp set, matching dies and drop-dead gorgeous printed designer paper at the OnStage event in San Diego in November and I got to preorder it as a perk for attending the event!

Stampin' Up! let us die cut the larger flower and gave us the piece of designer paper to stamp on (see below) and then I came home and created a card out of the pieces, adding the gorgeous leafy vine die cut on the right, and a few more flowers with Candy Dot centers.

After I die cut the leafy vine portion on the right side of the card, I sponged some Mossy Meadow ink with a sponge dauber on it.. i love the 2-tone contrast!

So did you catch that above... the stamps actually coordinate with the designer paper, so you can add more detail to the leaves and flowers if you want to!! WHAT A COOL CONCEPT!  "Cool Beans" as my friend Collette says!!

Below: Check out the cool feature of this flower framelit... it actually does a "double cut" and the petal centers are die cut out of the larger petals... so pretty!!!

When you get your catalog, be sure to jump to the Botanical Gardens "centerfold" and linger for a moment over the suite of 6 coordinating products on those 2 pages!

More Gift Card Holders - Home for Christmas Stampin' Up! paper

 

Are you tired of my "folded paper bag gift card holders" yet?  If so.. I'm sorry... I can't help myself.. I LOVE making these out of the Stampin' Up! Tag a Bag gift bags!

Make Gift Card Holders using Home for Christmas paper and Kraft bags from Stampin' Up!. Holiday Gift Packaging idea from Patty Bennett

Isn't this Santa paper just perfect with the "from Santa" greeting!!??  eeks! I loved it when these 2 just fell together so well!

  • Stamp set: Oh, What Fun #140386, pg 5 Holiday Catalog
  • Paper: Home for Christmas #139592, pg 9 Holiday Catalog
  • Bags: Kraft Tag a Bags #138315, pg 151 annual catalog

Gift Card packaging "from Santa" featuring Home for Christmas paper and Oh, What Fun stamp set from Stampin' UP!

I cut the "insert" to 4" x 4-1/4" and then punched the top 2 corners with the Curvy Corner Trio punch!  Other fun embellishments include Enamel Dots, glimmer paper and ribbon. I have posted all of the supplies at the bottom of this post and in the free project sheet below.

WATCH THE VIDEO tutorial for this Gift Card Holder project on my YouTube Channel.

We made these at a recent Luv 2 Stamp Group stamping day and also at my workshop for Rita.  I had to explain that I didn't do a very good job.. did you see what happened?

Home for Christmas reindeer paper design on a gift card holder.  Stampin' Up! supplies. Project by Patty Bennett

I ended up with the back end of the reindeer!!! eeek!! So... my advice to you is... adjust the paper before you glue it down if you are trying to capture a certain part of the design!! LOL

Project Life by Stampin' UP! Bookmarks with Fuse Tool

 

We are home from San Diego...  My hubby and son and I flew to San Diego last week for a week of R&R as well as the brand new Stampin' Up! OnStage events on Friday night and all day Saturday!  I'll have a little photo recap for you in a day or 2 but wanted to share this cute project with you that I took with me to swap with other Demonstrators..

One of the little projects I brought with me to San Diego to the Stampin' UP! OnStage event were these sweet little bookmarks!  I made them with Project Life cards from Stampin' UP! and clear bookmark sleeves (info at the bottom of this post).

Fun DIY Bookmarks featuring Project Life cards and sequins from Stampin' UP!.  Fuse with the Project Life Fuse Tool.  by Patty Bennett

I used the 2"x3" Project Life cards, trimmed down to 2-1/2" wide for these cute bookmarks.  They are inserted into a plastic bookmark sleeve, loaded up with cute Stampin' UP! sequins, then fused shut with the Project Life fuse tool.  I added all sorts of pretty ribbons and sequin trim at the top.

Supplies needed to make Project Life bookmarks featuring Stampin' Up! PL cards, sequins and trim.  Project Life Fuse Tool and bookmark sleeves - link in my blog post.

Stampin' UP! offers a huge variety of Project Life cards, so you'll have endless options for the style of bookmarks you make.. make them for many occasions as party favors, bookmarks for your library books, teacher gifts, co-worker treats, showers or weddings, etc.

Here is a Step by Step tutorial for you so you can make your own Project Life Bookmarks!
