Personalized Bone Folders in pretty Gold Striped Bags

 

It's been busy around here.. over the past few weeks, I decorated, stuffed and mailed 300+ gold striped bags with 600 die cut Christmas trees, 300 metallic doilies and 300 foil snowflakes for my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and filled them with a personalized bone folders as my Christmas gift to each of them!

 

Assembly line for 300 gold striped bags for the Luv 2 Stamp Group - Christmas gifts 2017 from Patty Bennett

I decided to work on the coffee table in the living room so I could enjoy the Christmas tree and all the trimmings while I worked.

Personalized bone folder Christmas gifts for the Luv 2 Stamp Group

I thought I had die cut enough trees, but ended up going back to the Big Shot many times to cut more trees!  600+ trees is a LOT!!  I used the tree in the Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh thinlit set and the Naturally Eclectic and Coffee Break packs of designer paper, mixing and matching the trees on each package.

 Debbie Adams of  Advanced Custom Embroidery & Graphics in NY engraved the Stampin' Up! bone folders for me.  She was terrific to work with and if you need any personalized gifts, I'd highly recommend her!

I layered a metallic doily and a foil snowflake, gold on silver, or silver on gold, for a little extra bling behind the stamped die cut circle.

The gold striped bags are so pretty and especially festive for the holidays!  Find them on page 195 in the annual catalog or here online.

I was celebrating each little step along the way.. like 300+ stamped, die cut circles...  :)

Mini Pizza Box Christmas Gift Idea

 

If you joined me here yesterday you saw the results of our girls crafting day "Be Merry rosette ornaments" creations, and today I'm sharing a fun thing you might like to do with them.. put one on a Mini Pizza Box for a great little neighbor gift, teacher appreciation gift, co-worker gift, etc.!

 

Stampin' UP! mini pizza box gift idea with Be Merry rosette ornament on top. Perfect for gift giving: cookies, candy, gift cards, jewelry, notes, photos and more! by Patty Bennett

 

This is one of the 7 projects we created last month at our Luv 2 Stamp Group event.  We made the rosette ornaments from the Be Merry kit and hot glued them to a pizza box!  It's the perfect little container for some holiday candy, treats or gift card!

We found that a hot glue gun was a great help in securing all these layers together.

In addition to the contents of the Be Merry ornament kit, we added a Foil Snowflake, punched circle from the Quilted Christmas designer paper stack, a stamped greeting from the Christmas Happiness stamp set, tag border from the Labels to Love set, and the Everyday Label punch. We also added an adorable stitched felt red star from the Stitched Felt Embellishments package, topped off with the Quilted Christmas 1/4" ribbon bow.

Final touches of gold: Faceted Gold Gems and Gold Metallic enamel shaped stars.

Perfect Thanksgiving Hostess Gift Idea

 

We're so excited because my sister-in-law invited us to her home for Thanksgiving again this year.. we love and appreciate her hospitality!  I think this will make a sweet hostess gift to take to her!!  I used the Stampin' UP! Painted Harvest stamp set to stamp the sunflower image, leaves and thankful greeting, and the Gourd Goodness stamp set to stamp the pumpkins.

 

Painted Harvest and Gourd Goodness sunflower and pumpkins Hostess gift idea for Thanksgiving. Stampin' Up! supplies available online: click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

Helpful Resources:

 

This jar is actually a candle holder jar from Michaels (see THIS post), but I took the candle holder part out, and filled the jar with candy, and then covered the hole in the lid with the stamped sunflower on the punched out circle!

 

Painted Harvest and Gourd Goodness sunflower and pumpkins Hostess gift idea for Thanksgiving. Stampin' Up! supplies available online: click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

To take out the candle holder portion, I just wiggled the piece back and forth and it eventually broke the weld.  Easy.

I tied it up with the 3/8" Crushed Curry Mini Chevron ribbon.

The pumpkins are stamped with Peekaboo peach and Pumpkin Pie ink. I love the photo-realistic images in this Gourd Goodness set.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to add them to a die cut Stitched Shape Whisper White oval piece. I stamped the greeting from Painted Harvest in Cajun Craze ink.

 The leaves are stamped and punched using the stamps in the Painted Harvest bundle - SAVE 10% when you buy the bundle including the stamp set and leaf punch! See the bottom of this post for all shopping info!

This was one of the 7 Holiday catalog projects the Luv 2 Stamp Group created last Saturday at our stamping day event.  We used the Year of Cheer Holiday catalog paper to wrap around the Ghirardelli chocolate squares, and also to decorate the 1/2 boxes.  Each box is finished off with a gold or silver Foil Snowflake, and a stamped sentiment from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock, and punched with the Starburst Punch.

Creative Pizza Box Birthday Gift for my dad's 85th birthday

 

 

Jim Burns 85th birthday cake, celebration Sept. 2017We recently had the amazing pleasure of celebrating both of our dads 85th birthdays!

We celebrated with Eric's dad a few weeks early when they came up to the Bay Area to visit, and we celebrated with my dad in So. Cal. in September. Eric's dad also had a big family celebration while we were gone on our cruise last week.

We are So blessed to have both dads turning 85 in the same month!

I will be sharing the card/gift I made Eric's dad in a future post, but today I am sharing a fun gift I made for my dad!

Our family gathered at a restaurant in Sierra Madre in early September to celebrate my dad, Jim Burns (yes, he's the artist). 

I wanted to do something with $85 since it was his 85th birthday, so I came up with the idea of putting 85  $1 bills into mini pizza boxes from Stampin' Up! and I came up with this fun way to package it.  I hope it gives you some fun ideas for doing something similar!

 

Stampin' UP! mini pizza box stack - special 85th birthday gift with photos and $85 inside by Patty Bennett

 

I stacked 4 Mini Pizza Boxes, and decorated the top one with the Happy Birthday framelit die cut in Island Indigo cardstock,  as well as with pieces of the Year of Cheer paper and some gold and silver edged ribbons. 

In the top box, I made an accordion fold out of a bunch of 3x3 photos... and die cut 85 with the large numbers framelits and silver foil paper.

Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin kit gifts

 

Hi friends!!  If you follow me on my Business Facebook Page or Instagram, you probably know that we were away on Vacation last week... we took a cruise to the Caribbean!! It was wonderful and relaxing and just what we all needed!!  I think it's been 2 years since we took a week off, so let's say we thoroughly enjoyed the time away!

We cruised on Royal Caribbean to the Western Caribbean on the Liberty of the Seas on a crafting and stamping cruise hosted by demonstrator Jenn Gulch.   She had tons of Stampin' Up! crafting projects for us to create, and you can see some of them HERE. If you are interested in attending the 2018 cruise hosted by Jenn, scroll to the bottom of this post for a link.

Today I am going to share the little cards and gift boxes I brought with me to give to our cabin steward, our waiters, and other special people on the ship.  We like to leave a little something on the bed for the cabin steward each night, and also treat the waiters on the last night. 

I used the "Layered Leaves" September Paper Pumpkin kit and a few other supplies to create the little gifties.  For all the supplies, scroll to the bottom of this post, please.

We put money in them and I think they enjoyed each treat!

 I decorated my box with a foil snowflake, stamped stitched shape circle (Snowflake Sentiment set, pg 35), Silver Tinsel (pg 21), Banners punched from Year of Cheer paper (Banner Triple punch), and Year of Cheer embellishments (pg 37).  You might ask why I stamped with Cajun Craze ink?  I think it looks great with the Copper paper and accents!

The Year of Cheer paper, is easy to miss.. check out the bottom of page 37 to see it.  I am telling you.. EVERY person I've shown these projects to has said, "Wait, where is that paper??"... I do think it's easy to overlook it in the catalog!  (see it HERE online).

 

Below: this is what the back looks like. If you wrap the Champagne foil belly band around and put the seam under the embellishment in the front, you don't see the seam on the back.

You can see here that the 6 medium size Ghirardelli chocolates fit PERFECTLY into the clear acetate gift box!!!!

My 3rd Ghirardelli candy holiday gift idea for you today is simply to take a large chocolate bar and wrap the Year of Cheer paper around it, and add an embellishment.  I used a Silver Foil Snowflake, and punched/die cut elements from the Year of Cheer paper and Whisper White paper.   The for you stamp is found in the annual catalog in the Birthday Blooms stamp set #140655 / 140658

A glue dot under the ribbon at the midpoint of each side is a perfect way to ensure the ribbon won't slip off, and, by tying it around the circumference of the box, the recipient doesn't need to untie the ribbon to get the treats out of the box!
