Christmas Gift Pillow Boxes using Stampin' Up!

I love making gift packaging for my Christmas presents and Stampin' Up! have the most fabulous Little Square Pillow Box Thinlits, which are perfect for just that job.  I used the super cute Winter Wonderland Designer Series Vellum Stack, which at 6" x 6" fits the thinlits beautifully, I didn't even need to cut the vellum paper stack down to size.

The vellum paper stack is on the Weekly Deals this week at £6.75 and has 36 sheets in each stack, and you need 2 pieces for each box so you could make 18 of these super little boxes with just one packet of the vellum. I think the vellum pack is great value.


    
    
I used the A little Something Stamp Set which co-ordinates with the Thinlits for the sentiment. The Thinlits come with lots of little extras die cuts for you to use to die cut super cute pumpkins, leaves, christmas trees and snowflakes. I cut some of the little snowflake from the Thinlits to decorate this box.


I made another box also this time in a stripped gold vellum from the pack and used the lovely little leaves die to cut out gold and dazzling diamond leaves to decorate the box.

They took no time to do and I love the way they turned out, and the great thing is that the Thinlits and stamp set come as a bundle so you save extra money. It's a win win.

If you would like to make these great little Christmas/present boxes I have added the items used at the bottom of the page.

More Crafting Fun Stampin' Up! Swaps from Brussels 2015

Hi I have just returned from a fabulous weekend at the Stampin' Up! On Stage Live 2015 where I meet up with lots of lovely other ladies and fellow demonstrators.  We all enjoyed catching up and sharing our swaps. They were too many for one picture so I had to take two!!




Aren't they fabulous I collected well over 70 swaps from other ladies. It's such fun going to these events and being able to share what you love with other ladies.  It gives you such a boast and reignites all those creative juices to come back and make more lovely cards and projects to share. 

I hope you have a fabulous day whatever you do and pop back on Friday to see a lovely Christmas project I'm making for a friend.

My Stampin' Up On Stage Live 2015 Swaps!

Hi thanks for popping by to my blog today, as you read this post I am in Brussels attending the Stampin' Up! On Stage Live 2015. The On Stage Live event is an opportunity for all the Stampin' Up! demonstrators around the world to get together and see brand new products, learn about new tools, and see new techniques. To bring home and share with all their customers. We also do something called swaps where we all make cards or 3d projects and swap them with each other.

This is my swap and I have made 75 of them to swap. I made them using Basic Black and Smoky Slate Card card stock, Basic Grey and Smoky Slate ink and Iridescent Ice Embossing powder. I wanted something with a little sparkly and I think you can see that they do have some sparkle.

I stamped the leaf from the Crazy about You stamp set first in the Basic Grey then in the Smoky Slate and then using VersaMark and a heat gun in Iridescent Embossing Powder. The little butterfly and the sentiment are from the stamp set Garden in Bloom.  
    


I'm so lucky to have the opportunity to work for such a great company doing something I love. I get to work with inspiring people who share their knowledge freely and see new products and enjoy the benefits of being a demonstrator.

I love sharing and inspiring other ladies to create beautiful cards and projects as well as having the chance share my love of Stampin' Up!

Easy Christmas Card using Stampin' Up! Products

I wanted to make some quick and easy Christmas cards to send out, and the lovely Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!, was perfect for the job.

 

You get 12 sheets 2 each of 5 double-sided designs printed with metallic ink on one side, and 1 each of 2 single-sided gold foil designs in each pack of paper. I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White using the stamp set "A little Something". I then cut this out using a 1 3/4" circle and then popped the sentiment on a 2" circle of black card stock. 

I coloured in the image on the stamp set using Write Markers in Basic Black and Real Red. If you use the markers you can colour the different sections of the stamp different colours just like I have done, and it's so easy to do.  I placed a Rhinestone in the middle of the sprigs of holly and the sentiment/topper was all done. 

To finish the card off I punched 5 stars out of Gold Glimmer paper using the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack and placed that with some of the super cute pompom trim down the left side of the card using a small stapler from Stampin' Up!  The card was super quick to put together and I used only a few things.

If you would like to make this lovely card and want to place an order your goods will be delivered straight to your door in only a few days. I have put all the products used in the table below. Just click the link to take a look. There is no obligation to buy.

I've made baby cards with them, new home cards with them and now a super cute Christmas Card. The possibilities are endless and I can't put them down..... There one of my favourite Framelits from the Autumn/Winter 2015 Catalogue.  


I love the way the window stands out in the red, and the little piece of Red Glimmer Paper makes the wreath pop with colour. Did you notice the background is the lovely new Brick Wall Embossing Folder the card just had to have that as the background. I inked up in real red the word Celebrate from the cute wooden elements doesn't it look cute.
