Luv 2 Stamp Group Falling in Love projects blog hop part 2

 

Welcome back to another Luv 2 Stamp Group Occasions Catalog Blog Hop! Be sure to visit all of the blogs listed at the bottom of this post to see more great ideas featuring 4 Suites of products in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog!

Today's Bride and Groom gift bad idea features the Stampin' Up! Falling in Love designer paper from the 2017 Occasions catalog (page 51).  This was one of the projects that I demonstrated at our Saturday Luv 2 Stamp Group online event.  We have a great time at our online events!!  :)

 

Gift bag for bride & groom for your wedding card. Featuring Falliing in Love designer paper and Falling For You stamp set. Glassine bag from Stampin' Up!. Project by Patty Bennett

 

On Saturday, I shared THIS CARD and showed how to cut out the Sweet & Sassy heart from the Falling in Love paper for that card and then use the left over heart on this adorable bag!!  This bag fits a regular medium size envelope and makes the perfect way to give a card, money or gift card to the Bride & Groom at a wedding!! 

 

Gift bag for bride & groom for your wedding card. Featuring Falliing in Love designer paper and Falling For You stamp set, metallic and paper doilies and die cut Sweet & Sassy heart. Glassine bag from Stampin' Up!. Project by Patty Bennett

 

The fun notable design feature of this project is layering the new vanilla Lace Doily on top of the Gold Metallic doily!  I love the beautiful soft look this provides to the project! I stamped right onto the die cut heart and then layered the heart onto the doilies.  The stamped images are found in the Falling for You stamp set on pg 51 in the Occasions catalog.

Pieces of Falling in Love designer paper are also layered onto the bag and onto the strip of Soft Sky cardstock.

I scalloped a piece of the Falling in Love paper with my Best Badge Punch (see that idea here), and then tied it all up with the Gold Sale a Bration metallic ribbon!! 

If you watched the VIDEO HERE, you noticed that you can change up the look of a project like this by flipping the paper doily to the white side, layering it with the Silver metallic doily and using the white and silver Sale a Bration ribbon!!

 

I also thought you might like this bonus idea... when you have strips of designer paper left over, wrap them around the Glassine bags or Kraft gift bags and then embellish with doilies or die cuts or whatever you have handy.  It's a great way to send a little treat like these welcome packets recently sent to new Luv 2 Stamp Group members.  The polkadot glassine bags retired, but you can still get the regular glassine bags in my online store, just click any of the product photo links at the bottom of this post to shop online.

Valentine Glassine Goodie Bag

 

You know how I treasure those fun stamping days with the amazing Cindee Wilkinson and I always love to see what she comes up  :) ... so, last time we stamped together, she went above and beyond and created this project that just blew me away! Check out this great Valentine goodie bag she had prepared for us to make!!!  It features several of the Sending Love Suite products from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, pgs 14 and 15.

 

DIY Stampin' Up! Sending Love Valentine Glassine Goodie Bag created with Occasions Catalog stamps, paper, ink and embellishments.

 

We made the bag with new Stampin' UP! Sending Love Glassine sheets and the Mini Treat Bag thinlit die.

Then we added 6 layers of FUN die cuts, doilies and embellishments plus ribbon and sequins!! 

 

Suppplies for DIY Stampin' Up! Sending Love Valentine Glassine Goodie Bag created with Occasions Catalog stamps, paper, ink and embellishments.

 

Stampin' UP! Sending Love (Occasions Catalog) Supplies we used:

  • Sealed with Love Stamp set, pg 15
  • Love Notes Framelits, pg 14
  • Sending Love paper stack, pg 15
  • Sending Love Glassine Sheets, pg 14
  • Sending Love embellishments, pg 15
  • Real Red, Whisper White and Pool Party cardstock and ink
  • Lace Doilies, pg 51
  • Gold Binder Clips (annual catalog) pg 177

 

Using the Sealed with Love bundle stamps and dies makes it easy to create tiny love notes and envelopes as shown on the bag front!!!

 

You'll also want to grab your Sponge Brayer and a Stampin' Sponge and some ink... because you'll be able to change the color on your Sending Love paper and the Lace Doilies!!!

 

Amazing Stampin' Tip for Stampin' Up! Sending Love red and white paper: use a sponge brayer to change the color combo of this paper!

 

ABOVE: Check out that AMAZING TIP!  Just grab your Sponge Brayer and an ink pad and roll color right on to the red and white Sending Love paper to create a whole new look!!! 

AMAZING!

 

BELOW: a closer look at the red and white patterns in the Sending Love paper stack, available HERE in my online store.

 

142733 Stampin' UP! Sending Love paper stack perfect red and white paper for DIY Valentines and other crafting projects

 

And here is amazing tip #2... color the new Lace Doilies ANY COLOR to coordinate with your theme, holiday or color palette!!!  Be gentle, they ARE doilies afterall, but just sponge by dabbing color straight up and down to add layers of color.

 

Amazing Stampin' Tip for Stampin' Up! Lace Doilies: use a sponge and ink to change the color of these gorgeous Lace doilies!

 

If you enjoy my Stanpin' Tips, you may want to visit my Stamping and Crafting TIP PINTEREST BOARD here for 291 other crafty tips!

 

All of the fun elements like the die cut envelope and love note, the heart, doily, and banner were glued together then just clipped to the bag, so that the recipient can get their treat from the bag without destroying the pretty packaging.

After brayering color onto the red and white striped paper, we punched the banner end with the Banner Triple punch.  We only needed 1/2 a doily, so those go twice as far!

Sneak Peek - Custom Tee Occasions Catalog stamp set Christmas Tags

 

Click for 18 Days of Giveaways!

Click to see Year-end Closeout products at up to 60% off!

Each month I package up 15 little gifts for the top sellers in my Luv 2 Stamp Group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  To celebrate the November top sellers, I bought them some Christmas ribbon and twine and packaged it up in a cello bag with a fun "Mrs. Santa Stamper" tee shirt tag! 

 

Stampin' Up! Custom Tee t-shirt stamps and framelits Santa hat tags for Luv 2 Stamp Group top seller gifts from Patty Bennett

 

The bags are tied up with the fabulous 3/4" Real Red stitched edge ribbon from page 5 of the 2016 Holiday catalog.

The tags were created with 2 new stamp sets:

Custom Tee from the upcoming 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog (page 30),

and Delicate Details from the upcoming 2017 Sale a Bration catalog (a free item you can select with your $50 order starting Jan. 4, 2017) (page 9).

 

I also used the Jolly Hat Builder punch with Red and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper for a Santa hat!

They are layered onto an oval die cut using the Fancy Frost designer paper, and red/white striped paper from the Designer paper stack, then on Real Red Cardstock.

Crafting Tip!

You can curve your photopolymer stamps on the clear blocks to create custom images... do you see how I curved the lace to match the bottom of the tee shirt?

 

Craft Tip: curve or reshape your photopolymer stamps to create custom stamped designs like the T-Shirts on these Stampin' Up! Custom Tee t-shirt stamps and framelits Santa hat tags for Luv 2 Stamp Group top seller gifts from Patty Bennett

 

To create the T-shirts:

  • die cut the t-shirt with the matching T-shirt Builder Framelit Dies
  • stamp the t-shirt outline image onto the die cut
  • (or reverse the order above.. both ways work)
  • curve the lace stamp (per above) and stamp it along the bottom of the shirt in Cherry Cobbler
  • die cut a white collar using the die in the T-Shirt builder framelit dies - adhere to shirt with 2 glue dots
  • Stamp happy Stamper onto the shirt using black ink and the stamp in the Custom Tee stamp set

 

Stampin' Up! Custom Tee t-shirt stamps and framelits Santa hat tags for Luv 2 Stamp Group top seller gifts from Patty Bennett

 

Punch out the Santa hat with the Jolly Hat builder punch and red glimmer paper and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

 

Stampin' Up! Custom Tee t-shirt stamps and framelits Santa hat tags for Luv 2 Stamp Group top seller gifts from Patty Bennett

I sponged just a touch of real red ink onto the collar so that it would stand out against the white.

Aren't these fun!?

Repurposed Paper Pumpkin Teddy Bear Box

 

I'm sending a box full of bear hugs to my niece!!  We were chatting one day and she mentioned that she cannot find her Snail adhesive after moving across country, so I knew that I had to send her a care package!!

I repurposed my November Paper Pumpkin kit box and filled it with a variety of Stampin' Up! adhesives for her! :)

 

Fa la la la friends bear hugs box by Patty Bennett. Stampin Up! stamps, ink and paper crafting supplies. Repurposed Paper Pumpkin kit box.

And what's a box of bear hugs without some cute bears!?  :)

I stamped and die cut these adorable bears using the Fa-la-la-la Friends stamp set (pg 30 in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog or HERE in my online store), and die cut them with the Bear Hugs framelits (pg 193 in the annual catalog, #140275 online), and of course I had to make them some cute plaid sweaters and jammies using the Warmth & Cheer plaid papers from the Holiday catalog (pg 13, or #141991 online).

Don't you love them!?  I do!  I hope Jenny loves the box of treats!!  Love you Jenny!!

I covered the top of the box with some Presents & Pinecones paper to hide the mailing label, but the rest of the box is perfect because it has sweet holiday wishes printed on the sides!

Do you Give Gift Cards at the Holidays?

 

Gift Cards... do you give Gift Cards? We probably all do, right?  Family, Friends, Mailman, UPS guy, co-workers, teachers, grandkids, etc.

Well, here is a creative way to present an otherwise boring gift card!

Merry Tags Gift Card Holders featuring Stampin' Up! bags, paper and embellishments by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

All I did was to fold a bag in half, in this case I used the Glassine Gift Bags, but you can use the Kraft Gift bags, too, as shown in the video below.  Purchase either of these bag options in my online store and find on page 176 in the 2016 annual Stampin' Up! catalog.  See all of the supplies used for these projects listed at the bottom of this blog post.

 

Watch my video below from last year.. different supplies, same concept:

 

Click here to watch the video on YouTube if you are reading this in a email!

Click here to see more ideas using this design idea.

Or, maybe you just want to tuck in other goodies like candy, family photos, a note, theater tickets, etc., .. fill the 2 pockets with whatever you'd like!

Each of these gift card holders was embellished with the "This Christmas" designer paper and die cut images from the Merry Tags framelit dies.

 

Merry Tags Gift Card Holders featuring Stampin' Up! bags, paper and embellishments by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

As you'll see in the video, simply wrap a 10" to 12" piece of designer paper around the folded bag and decorate.. could not be any simpler!! :)

The bag itself creates 2 pockets for you to fill!

Wink of Stella Gifts for Luv 2 Stamp Group

 Special Notice! 

CLICK HERE for Online Extravaganza Sale Starting Tomorrow, Nov. 21!

------------------------

 Each month, I love to recognize and celebrate my Luv 2 Stamp group (Stampin' UP! team) who have excelled in sales, recruiting and promoting.  We celebrate these accomplishments on our private Facebook group.  I also send out gifts in the mail for promotions and top in sales!

These are the fun gifties I mailed to the top 15 in sales for October!

 

Stampin UP! Petite Cafe Gift Bags with Christmas trees and Wink of Stella for Luv 2 Stamp Group top sellers, by Patty Bennett

 

I used a Stampin' Up! Petite Cafe Gift bag, cut the top closure off, and stamped it with snowflakes and my White StazOn ink pad.  Then I added some "snow" - simply a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper cut with a wavy edge and my paper snips. After that, I added pine trees, die cut with the Santa's Sleigh thinlits and Presents & Pinecones designer paper.

Inside each bag is a Clear Wink of Stella as a little gifty for each of the top 15 sellers in the Luv 2 Stamp group.  You can NEVER have enough Wink of Stella.. trust me!

 

Stampin UP! Petite Cafe Gift Bags with Christmas trees and Wink of Stella for Luv 2 Stamp Group top sellers, by Patty Bennett

 NOTE: it probably wasn't the best decision to use StazOn on my photopolymer snowflake stamps... so if you have a wood mount or clear mount snowflake, I'd recommend that instead.

Embossed Goodie Bags - So Pretty!

 

I was packaging up welcome packets for my new Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrators and I had a brainstorm moment... I decided instead of just putting little gifts in plain Kraft Bags, why not emboss the bags first!?   OH MY>> I love them!  These Kraft bags are embossed with the Holly embossing folder and the Pine Bough embossing folder from Stampin' Up!

I decorated the welcome gifts with the Holly embossing folder and Candy Cane Lane designer paper, and then just kept decorating bags, using Presents & Pinecones paper and the Merry Tags thinlits, THEN I decided to add die cut pinecones, holly berries and pine boughs with the Pretty Pines thinlits!!

 

 Quick Look at the supplies:

  • Kraft gift bags, pg 176 annual catalog, #138315
  • Pine Bough embossing folder, pg 20 of the 2016 Holiday catalog, #141831
  • Holly embossing folder, pg 195 annual catalog, #141634
  • Candy Cane Lane designer paper, pg 5 2016 Holiday catalog, #141981
  • Presents & Pinecones designer paper, pg 18 2016 Holiday catalog, #141986
  • Pretty Pines thinlits, pg 19 2016 Holiday catalog, #141851
  • Merry Tags bundle, pg 21 2016 Holiday catalog, #143520 / 143519

After embossing the bag, I put the gift inside, then cut a 2"x12" strip of designer paper, folded it in 1/2 then folded it around the bag and stapled at the top.  This "belly band" can slip off the bag so the recipient can regift this bag if they want to.

The doilies and other embellishments are added to the belly band, so nothing is stuck to the bag.

They are pretty cheery little gifts, don't you think?  My friend Cindee has shown me by example over the years that the packaging is 1/2 the gift... so I have been trying to dress up the packaging when I send a little gifty :)

I used both the Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon and the Red Stitched Edge ribbon to add a little extra pop of color to these bags.

I also added In Color Doilies and Gold Foil metallic doilies and either stamped focal images, or tags from the Merry Tags framelits and stamp set bundle.  (Save 10% when you buy a bundle!)

 Above: this bag features a piece of paper from the This Christmas designer paper package in the annual catalog.

When you are "building" these medallions with pine boughs, I found it easiest to use either Glue Dots or Multipurpose liquid glue and build the whole thing while holding it in my hand, then add it to the package.. see below for picture description:

Isn't the Merry Tags embellishment pretty when it's die cut with the Gold Foil paper!!??

 

After adding all those fun pine bough layers, I added some of the Mini Pinecone copper embellishments with some Linen Thread.  Just the perfect finishing touch!

Matchbook Style Cards

 

I truly hope you enjoyed the Matchbook card style video tutorial yesterday!  I had so much fun making a few extra cards with this design. It's so easy to make and just something a little different!!!   If you missed the video and instructions, click here.

 

Halloween Night & Jar of Haunts Halloween card - matchbook style goodie treat bag project by Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' Up! products

 

A few fun finds on this project:

  • did you see how cute the Glitter Silver ribbon looks on this project!?  A fun find for a sparkly addition to a Halloween project!!  3/8" glitter ribbon combo pack, pg 37 Holiday catalog #142015
  • check out the darling tassel!!  I tied it to the Halloween baker's twine.. how fun!! Baker's twine is on pg 51 in the holiday catalog, #142027, mini tassels are on pg 55, #142024
  • metallic foil silver doily... um.. why not?  Halloween can have doilies, right!? :)  Find them on pg 175 in the annual catalog, #138392

 

This Halloween Trick or Treat goodie bag holder, is the same Matchbook style and it holds a cello bag with treats inside!  Who wouldn't love to receive this little cutie!?  :)

 

Halloween Night & Jar of Haunts Halloween card - matchbook style goodie treat bag project by Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' Up! products

 

I used a 4-1/4x11" piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock for the base and scored it at 1-1/2", 6-1/2" and 7", per the VIDEO here.

Stamping:

 The Jar is stamped with the Jar of Haunts stamp set (pg 55 holiday catalog, #142247) and the banner is stamped with the Spooky Fun stamp set (pg 52 Holiday catalog, #142236) and the Birthday Banners set (annual catalog, pg 15, #141506).

Paper Goods:

Tangerine Tango card (cut/scored per info above in this post), and Halloween Night DSP, cut to 1"x4" and 3"x4".

 --------------------

 

Christmas Matchbook project idea:

 

Presents & Pinecones matchbook style card project by Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' Up! products

 

Another idea for you ... use the same cutting and scoring dimensions and use a different color scheme, and different paper for a Christmas holiday gifty or card!  I used Emerald Envy cardstock and Presents & Pinecones paper (pg 18, #141986, part of the BUY 3 GET 1 FREE sale going on until 10/31/16!).

I used the layering ovals in Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler for the greeting.

Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape adds a fun accent, as well as the Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy 3/8" Silky Taffeta ribbon!

Again, you can see the dimensions and watch the video tutorial here

 So now you have 3 ideas using this design..  the Candy Cane Lane ideas shared yesterday, the Halloween idea shared above and the Presents & Pinecones idea here, too! yay!
