Quick & Easy Massive Thanks

Today I'm show you now to  create a Quick & Easy Massive Thanks!  Now that Christmas Day is past I'm sure there are several individuals you'd like to thank for their kind thoughtfulness during the holidays. But you are busy still, right, so we need something awesome but quick& easy....here's a fun fold that is bright and cheery....best part it just takes a couple of minutes to create!

Thank you card

Inside

Don't recognize the designer paper? That's because it's FREE...it's from the new Sale-a-bration Freebies that will be available January 5th. It's a new set of paper called Flowers & Field.

This card has a fun mid-card opening that gives it a bit of pizzazz--while still being quite simple to execute but will be delightful to the recipient when they open it up!

I'll give you the step by step directions below followed by the Supply List. If you place an order online through my store & use this month's host code (RGTCRZFN) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product (I choose) from me for each $50 in product that you order.

The Spring mini (January - June mini) and the Sale-a-bration mini are due to arrive in your mailbox any day...some of our lucky stampers have already received theirs! If you don't receive one by 1/1/21 and you don't have a demonstrator, contact me & we'll get one to you!

Directions:

1. Cut Daffodil Delight cardstock 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score the long side at 2 and 6" (card base).

2. (I used the new Flowers & Field DSP from Sale-a-bration--you can use the currently available Flowers for Every Season DSP) Cut two pieces 5 1/4 X 1 7/8; adhere to the top & bottom of the front pieces. On top flap bring the mid-card long edge of the designer paper all the way to the edge of the card opening; close the flaps (top over bottom--adhere bottom paper so that no yellow shows at the midline closure This will leave a small bit of yellow cardstock showing around the other 3 edges.

3. Punch Label Me Lovely from Daffodill cardstock; punch 2 Daisy punches from Whisper White cardstock. With your fingers you can curl the petals up for one and down for the other. Layer these (downward petals on bottom & upward petals on top) with glue dots. Adhere this to the middle of the label punch out with liquid glue.

4. Cut a small flower from Daffodil cardstock using the small flower die from Wreath builder dies); adhere to center of daisy; add a large Daffodil sequin (Artistry Blooms) to the center of the small flower.

5. Add 3 dimensionals to the top of the back of the label--adhere to the top card flap so that it is approximately over 1/2 the top & 1/2 over the bottom card flaps.

Dimensionals

6. Cut 3 3/4 X 5 Whisper White cardstock. Stamp "Massive Thanks" in black in (e.g. Memento) in center; adher to inside of card with liquid glue.

Your card is ready for senting!

The Last Quickest & Easiest Christmas Tag This Year!

Today we're making The Last Quickest & Easiest Christmas Tag This Year

Tag - snow

By now, you are really running low on time and so this one is the fastest one yet---very little to do and it's a dynamite tag--probably my favorite of this set of 3 tags we've created in the last few days.

If you create scrap pages with photos as gifts or for yourself--these tags make totally awesome embellishments. If the person to whom you are giving the gift does photo pages--you may want to let them know that this is a wonderful way to keep the love going by using the tag in there memory pages.

This time we are using the snowfall background and simple white die cuts that are beautiful focal points and require just seconds to create. Add a couple of rhinestones and you tag is complete.

Quick & Easy Christmas Tag Time #2

Today it's Quick & Easy Christmas Tag Time #2! What do you think of this cutie?

Tag house

Again, the Trimming the Town designer paper (could be my favorite pack right now) lends itself to a beautiful creation AND you can get even more creative by using multiple houses (like my tag--I just layered the small on over the larger one), you can change colors, mix colors...there are many variations so none of your tags need to be the same if uniqueness is what you enjoy--everyone on your gift list can have their own unique tag.

Check out that tiny wreath on the door--yes, a die and the designer paper made that happen!

Another fun thing about these tags is that they can be taken from the package and added to your Christmas tree or hang them in the window to enjoy longer than just receiving the gift!

I'll give you the simple directions below followed by the Supply List. If you already ordered the Trimming the Town designer paper--you are ready to start creating..there are a ton of options to choose from. Stop back by next Monday and check out one last cute tag you can create quickly.

Another Easiest Quickest Christmas Card

Today I'll show you Another Easiest Quickest Christmas Card....

Card 2

This little cutie has a woodsy background--a very simple background because it's designer paper! Look how those die cut trees (from the designer paper) coordinate perfectly with the woodsy background.

The house is red this time but you can choose the color and style you like--or make several with different houses...the choices just go on and on.

Check out that adorable wreath on the upstairs window--again, a die cut from the designer paper and a dimensioal!

If you already ordered your Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper---you are halfway done now. This pack of paper is an awesome (almost limitless) array of stuff to create--AND, to create it quickly and easily--doesn't get better than that, right. There's nothing better than making something that looks fabulous and only took a couple of minutes to complete!

Keep watching the next few days---there's still more after the cards we're creating!

Am I right, does it get any easier or quicker? Or cuter? Plus the designer paper is on sale right now!

Easiest Quickest Christmas Card

Today I'll show you the Easiest Quickest Christmas Card!

Blue house card

Isn't that adorable? And, you don't get much faster--the only stamping is the verse--the rest comes from the Trimming the Town Suite of products...

The designer paper with the snowflakes creates an awesome backdrop for the primary focus. The dies in the set create the snowbank with white trees behind the "scene" and the Christmas home and green trees are simply die cut from the designer paper.

If you take a look at the "homes" sheet of designer paper you'll discover an array of home styles and colors...use any of them (or all of them) for your card....it's so simple to die cut them, pop them up on dimensionals and add a couple of trees from that same paper...you are done!

Am I right, does it get any easier or quicker? Or cuter? Plus the designer paper is on sale right now!

Let me show you the Easiest Quickest Christmas Gift Decoration #2!

Monday we use the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper to create a framed beauty...so look in that same pack of DSP and find the hill of houses...plus this time we're doing a bit of 3D to jazz it up...

House hanging

What you cannot really see with a head on picture is the dimension that's been added...using the dies in the Coming Home Bundle, cut out 3 of the houses (see below). If you don't have the dies--use your Paper Snips--these are very easy cuts). Then we pop the up with dimensionals so you gain some definite interest.

Blue house

Green house
Red house
Also, if you like more red houses, or green houses, or blue---just die cut those and overlay the other colors--you can have a blast changing the color focuses...for example, I placed the red house over the green one because I thought it brightened up the picture more (I like red!).

Again, you can add a red bow at the top or bottom, you can add Wink of Stella to the trees or other areas for a dab of pizzazz. Also, you can use some of the trees in the designer paper to pop up along side the houses....the variety is endless.

If I were a better photographer I'm sure there's a better way to display this for dramatic effect--but you can see the popped up houses from the individual pics.

 Tune back in next week for another use for this DSP--we'll be doing something else that's fun with this pack of DSP.

There's still time to order and get this well before Christmas (remember December 9th is the last day to place an order and be fairly sure to get it by Christmas).

If you place your order online and use this month's Host code (J2AMZZ9S) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! products (selected by me) for each $50 in product that you purchase. I'll be happy to place an order for you but I can't use the host code if I place it.

Also, The January - June Mini catalog and the Jan-Feb Sale-a-bration catalogs will be out soon! If you need one, contact me and I'll get them to you if you don't already have a demonstrator.
