I hope you like this sweet little Mini Pizza Box!!  It is one of the 7 projects I prepared and brought for my Luv 2 Stamp group to create today at our Holiday Catalog stamping day!   I hope they enjoy it!  The snowman is stamped in Memento Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock and colored with the new Stampin' Blend markers!  Demonstrators were able to preorder these new markers Oct. 1 - 15, and GREAT NEWS! the markers be available to customers on Nov. 1st!!  Watch the video below for more info about using these great new alcohol markers to shade this cute snowman!

Please enjoy the tips in my VIDEO TUTORIAL BELOW for shading the snowman with the Stampin' Blends markers.

 


 

If you are reading this in an email, CLICK HERE to watch the video, please.

 

Per my video above, you saw that I die cut the snowman with the matching Seasonal Tags framelit, but only used 1/2 of the stamp and framelit.  I just added the snowman "front" to my Mini Pizza box with Stampin' Dimensionals rather than die cutting the whole thing and making a folding tag.

What would you put in this cute Mini Pizza Box this Christmas to give someone? 

Leave me a comment below.. I'm going to pick my favorite idea and send this box to the winner next week!!  :)

 

The top of the Mini Pizza Box is a 3-1/4" square of Pool Party cardstock, embossed with the Winter Wonder snowflake embossing folder, and then I added Wink of Stella to the snowflake.

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!

Ghirardelli Chocolate Holiday Gift Ideas

 

Thank you for your super kind comments about my Year of Cheer Holiday Catalog product review and projects that I've been sharing with you this week!!!  Perhaps my favorite projects in this collection are the Ghirardelli Chocolate Holiday Gift Ideas featuring candy wrapped in the Year of Cheer specialty foil paper!!!

I'm highlighting 3 different ideas for you today, each featuring Ghirardelli chocolate!!!

 

Year of Cheer Stampin' UP! Christmas / Holiday gift giving idea featuring Ghirardelli chocolate and fun metallic snowflakes and embellishments and acetate gift box by Patty Bennett

 

Above: here are 6 Ghirardelli chocolates, each wrapped up in a scrap of Year of Cheer paper, and neatly snuggled into the new Clear Acetate Gift Box from Stampin' UP!  You'll be able to view the details of these great clear gift boxes on page 13 of the 2017 Holiday Catalog, or HERE in my online store.

 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!!!!

Below:  I had 4 Ghirardelli candy pieces left over, so I wrapped each one with Year of Cheer paper, put a glue dot in between each one, stacked them up, and tied them up with some Silver edged ribbon!!  how fun! How quick!  How Cute! :)

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

Year of Cheer Note Card set in Acetate Gift Box

 

One of the holiday gift giving ideas I featured in my Year of Cheer suite product review video yesterday was this Acetate gift box with set of 4 cards and envelopes inside.  The cards feature gold, silver, copper and champagne foil paper, accents and embellishments as well as other fun products from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday catalog.

These wonderful Acetate boxes are NEW in the Holiday catalog, and you might laugh at this, but they are hard to see.. not just because they are clear (LOL), but because there are SO many new products in this catalog, and there is just so much to grab your attention that you literally might MISS THEM!!  They are shown on the middle of page 13 in the catalog, #144628, or click HERE to see them in my online store.

Now, here is the exciting part.. you get 10 in the package for only $6.50!! whohooo!!

 

If you missed my video yesterday, watch my Year of Cheer Holiday Catalog product review video HERE

Year of Cheer suite from Stampin' Up!, 2017 Holiday catalog. Note card set in Acetate gift box, perfect for Christmas gift giving! by Patty Bennett

 

As you can see in this blog post and on my video yesterday, I put a set of 4 cards with envelopes in my box.  You could probably fit 5 or 6 if you had very few embellishments, but I think 4 is a really comfortable number, AND it makes a GREAT gift!!

I featured the Year of Cheer specialty paper (shown below) on each card.

While I did concentrate most of my Year of Cheer projects toward Christmas and the Holiday season, these products are not just for the holidays... check out the wedding (or anniversary) card I created with these products below!

 

Wedding Card idea featuring Silver Foil paper and Gold Foil Snowflake. Year of Cheer suite from Stampin' Up!, 2017 Holiday catalog. Note card set in Acetate gift box, perfect for Christmas gift giving! by Patty Bennett

 

I decided to try out something fun with the Gold Foil Snowflake.. I punched a circle out of the center of the snowflake and added it to a Very Vanilla stitched shape framelit circle, then attached the outer ring of the snowflake to the back of the die cut circle... nobody will ever know.. oh .. well, just those of you reading this :)

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!

Cute Sunflower Pizza Box featuring Painted Harvest set

 

Thank you to so many of you who have commented on the cuteness factor of this Mini Pizza Box from my Painted Autumn Suite Product Review Video!  If you missed it.. I'll include it below, at the bottom of this blog post.

I love the adorableness of these new Mini Pizza Boxes in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog!!  Find them on page 44, and purchase them starting 9/1/17 HERE online #144645.

Mini Pizza Box project tips:

  • Cut Designer Paper or cardstock to about 3-1/4" square for the top of the box
  • Fussy cut the printed sunflowers from the Painted Autumn paper
  • Decorate the center of the sunflowers with Black Rhinestone Jewels (#144639)
  • add a stamped tag featuring the Painted Harvest stamp set and Pretty Label punch
  • finish box with bow - Pear Pizzazz 3/8" shimmer ribbon

I wanted to use a second pattern from the Painted Autumn designer paper pack, so I cut a strip about 3/4" wide and wrapped it around the box.  I used Fast Fuse to make sure it would stay put.

And what would you fill this cute box with?

How about:

  • 3x3 note cards (see 3x3 envelopes on page 44 of the Holiday catalog, #145829)
  • candy
  • wallet size photos
  • gift card
  • cookie
  • pumpkin muffie (that's the muffin top from Panera) :)

Painted Harvest Sunflower Gift Bag & Tranquil Tide card

 

Did you watch my Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog video review featuring the Painted Autumn suite? 

If you missed it, you can see it HERE.  I featured the beautiful gold striped gift bag and the Tranquil Tide card below in my video, and I'd like to share the details with you here!

 

DIY Gift Bag Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Gold Striped Gift Bag decorated with 2017 Holiday Catalog Painted Harvest Suite paper and Painted Autumn sunflower stamp, by Patty Bennett

 

The lovely gold striped gift bags are found in the annual catalog on page 195, and I've decorated it with the Painted Autumn designer paper, and a stamped sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set.  I love all the warm fall colors and the glitz of the gold foil doily and mini gold sequin trim!

 

DIY Gift Bag Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Gold Striped Gift Bag decorated with 2017 Holiday Catalog Painted Harvest Suite paper and Painted Autumn sunflower stamp, by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the sunflower on a die cut Stitched Circle framelit and mounted it onto the Gold Foil Doily.  I stamped and punched leaves from the Painted Harvest bundle in Lemon Lime Twist and Cucumber Crush and tucked them in behind the flower for added color and interest.

The flags are 1-1/2" wide pieces of Painted Autumn paper punched with the Banner Triple Punch.

Thankful card featuring Stampin' UP! Embossing Paste and Painted Autumn paper. Stamped and punched leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

Above & Below: As I continue to show you the versatility of the Painted Autumn paper, I wanted to highlight yet another pattern in the package.  This pattern features blues and greens, so I went with Lemon Lime Twist embossing paste in the background, and Tranquil Tide ribbon, as well as Tranquil Tide and Pear Pizzazz stamped leaves! 

I think my mom would have liked this card.. she was a lover of blues and greens.

Did you notice the new punch tucked in there behind the leaves with the stamped greeting?  It's a new punch in the 2017 Stampin' UP! holiday catalog, called "Everyday Label Punch", it's on page 12.

Basket of Sunflower Note Card Set

 

I'm wondering if you would have guessed that these sweet sunflower baskets were stamped with images from the Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set!? 

Sunflower Basket ovals on cards and gold striped treat bags.  Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set and Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  by Patty Bennett

I stamped these sweet "sunflower baskets" on Whisper White Stitched Shape oval framelits, and then added them to cards and a gift bag!  I love the new Gold Striped Treat bags from Stampin' Up! (find the bags on page 195, #144255)

Each basket and sunflower bouquet is stamped with the Bike Ride stamp set (pg 20, #143716) in Archival Black ink onto a Whisper White stitched shape oval and layered onto a scalloped Layering Oval die cut in Old Olive cardstock.  I stamped "Thanks a bunch" in Pumpkin Pie ink from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (pg 93, #143666) onto each oval.

 

  Sunflower Basket ovals.  Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set and Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  by Patty Bennett

 

Tip for the sunflower centers ... color the White Perfect Accents with your Black Sharpie marker and add one to each flower center!

Below:  On the first card, I added a little Old Olive 1/8" sheer ribbon bow to the basket, and then added the entire oval onto a card that I embellished with some embossing paste bricks... the REALLY cool thing about these bricks is that I added Gold Glitter to the embossing paste along with the Cajun Craze ink refill.. it gives the "brick wall" amazing texture!!  CLICK HERE to learn how to use embossing paste!

I tied up the card with some 1/4" Copper Trim and "frayed out" the ends to create more neat texture on the card.

Craft Tip: add glitter to your embossing paste with reinker for unique textured brick background.  Pattern Party masks from Stampin' UP! & embossing paste available online. click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

I mixed Gold Glitter (#133457)  and reinker with my embossing paste to create these bricks with tons of texture!!!

For the card below, I was using up 2 different colors of embossing paste.. did you see my Instagram video (<< click!) when I was doing that fun technique?

Above:  I mixed Lemon Lime Twist reinker with my embossing paste and spread it on Basic Black cardstock using the Palette knives and Pattern Party Masks for this dramatic background for this sunflower basket card.  I added just a small strip of  Delightful Daisy designer paper to the bottom of the card, then tied it off with Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon in 2 places.

Above:  with my 4th sunflower basket oval, I decided to layer it onto a Gold Striped Treat Bag, and use a strip of Gold Foil paper that I had punched with the Decorative Ribbon punch, plus a gold metallic doily to dress it up a bit.  Then I added some Pear Pizzazz 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon to bring out the green scalloped oval.

Happiness is a cup of coffee card

When a new Stampin' UP! catalog debuts do you ever feel like there are just not enough hours in your week to play with all the fun new goodies!?  That's how I'm feeling right now! I'm bouncing around playing with each suite as quickly as I can!!

Today I am sharing a card and cute treat holder project featuring the Coffee Break Suite, found on pages 30 and 31 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog! 

  

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I created a cute side-fold card featuring the green and brown colors found in the Coffee Break Designer paper, and used the cute coffee cup stamps in the Coffee Cafe stamp set, then cut them out with the Coffee Cups framelits.  I embellished with the adorable Corrugated Elements heart and some Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon.  (all found on pg 31 or HERE online).

Although it's difficult to see in the photo, after I stamped the "whipped cream" in Soft Suede ink, I used my Clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer and color the topping just a bit.. it's pretty in person!!   And the straw... the straw.. I'm telling you.. what a cute addition to this set!!

 

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I thought the coffee cup would be cute layered onto an oval, so I die cut the Coffee Break paper with the Layering Ovals framelits, then layered that onto a Crumb Cake scalloped oval layer, also die cut with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Would you like this card?  I want to send it to someone who really wants it.. comment below and let me know what you think of the adorable Coffee Break Suite if you want this card. I'll pick a winner in a couple days and contact you for your mailing address.  U.S. addresses only, please.
