Did You Say "Thank You?"

Over the holidays I'm sure someone did something nice for you---Did You Say "Thank You?"

Thank you

Here's the easiest way to do that...it doesn't take much time and the design is worked out for you...so why not whip out a few of these and say "thanks" for all those nice things that someone did for you over the holidays!

I"ll give you the simple directions below and at the bottom is the supply list--order what you need by clicking on the Shop Now button or on one of the product images...if you use the current month host code (V99NJSRW) you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! product for each $50 in product that you purchase.

One last reminder....the Holiday mini catalog retires on January 2nd....if there are items that you want...order them now...some are already out of stock and you want to get those wanted items before they are gone. Also, even if the item is not retiring (it is being carried over---NO bundles are being carried over--that means you will not be able to get the 10% off bundle price after January 2nd.) Attached is the retiring items list--you can check it twice to make sure you are not missing something you really want. Download Year End Closeout-US

New Occasions Mini and Sale-a-bration Mini news:  I phoned Stampin'Up! on Christmas Eve and they assured me that the minis were mailed bulk mail on 12/10 as they promised. They think the delay is because of the holiday volume....if you have not received your mini's by 12/31---let me know and SU will re-send them.  However, if you are attending the debuts (Jan 4-6) you will be able to pick one up then if you haven't received them by that date. Sorry for the delay.

Tune back in next week for some sneak peaks of new products!

Super Quick Gift Wrap with Stampin'Up! Gable Boxes

Today you'll get the instructions for Super Quick Gift Wrap with Stampin'Up! Gable Boxes.

If you've been to one of my events in the last couple of weeks you may have won a door prize of chocolate--yes, that's awesome in itself....BUT, the chocolates were presented in this super cute gift wrap.... Gable bo Side

I used the Stampin'Up! Lustrous White Gable Boxes--- a package of 12 boxes is $8.00!  These boxes require no adhesive, just fold on the score lines and fold the bottom together...you are done.

Here are the measurements for the designer paper on the lower box:  two pieces of 3 7/8 X 1 7/8 & two pieces of 1 7/8 X 1 7/8---use liquid glue to adhere to bottom sides of the box.

Then:
*Cut approximately 18" Poppy Parade ribbon - tie around the box handles at the top (fill the box first with your gift).
*Stamp a candy cane (Candy Cane Season stamp set) in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock, punch with Candy Cane punch. Punch a 1/8" hole in the top and loop through 12" Garden Green twine, tie in a bow Tag

*Punch a bow (Candy Cane punch) in a scrap of Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper and adhere to candy cane with a dimensional

AWESOME! Your chocolates or other small gift is now looking like a million dollar gift...presentation is always the most important part of a gift...which would you prefer
*receiving a handful of chocolate  dumped into a grocery bag
OR
*receiving a handful of chocolate in this awesomely cute box?

You can quickly adapt this to any occasion by changing the designer series paper you choose to cover the bottom of the box--birthday, anniversary, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Just Thinking of You Day...etc.

Note: the Santa's Workshop Designer Series Paper is no longer available--there are several alternative papers to choose from in the supply list below.

Below is the Supply list that you'll need to re-create this terrific gift wrap--I've given you several designer papers to choose from for Christmas but you can select any designer paper for all occasions!

Remember
*The Holiday mini catalog is good until 1/2/19--HOWEVER, the products are only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! The retiring list will be published Wednesday (12/5/18) and when that list is published the supplies will be going quickly. My advice is to order now!

Quick Gift Holder for co-worker, teachers, friends!

Here's a great Quick Gift Holder for co-workers, teachers, friends! I used it for Hot Cocoa Mix and a candy cane...but you can use it for any small gift or a small gift card...what makes it so great is that you can make two of them from a single acetate box. That's right, I just cut one into two and I can make two super gifts--love the easy wrapping as well as the inexpensive but awesome acetate box holder! Cocoa holder

Take a look at the tag--we used that same neat technique as we used Tuesday to create a fun quick double backing. Label closeup

Snowfall Thinlets meet Silver Edged Cards & Envelopes

Still having a blast with the "November Only" products -- today Snowfall Thinlets Meet Silver Edged Cards & Envelopes! These silver-edged cards are gorgeous, elegant and ready to stamp---no prep work needed. AND....wait for it....the envelopes match the silver edging! You start with a professional look and it just gets better!

Here's today's card... 11-20-18 Snowfall meets Silver edged cards

This is a closer look at those cute tiny snowflakes... 11-20-18 corner

I used the small snowflakes in Snow is Glistening stamp set with Smokey Slate ink...the "white" area just needed something to spruce it up. Then I cut the super large snowflake flake with the die in Snowfall Thinlets (these are to die for...20 dies...ok, ok, I hear ya...LOL). The snowflake is attached to the card front with small dots of liquid glue. Then I stamped the lovely verse in Stazon Jet Black ink on a white banner; attached the banner to the snowflake center with dimensionals. 

These 2 stamp sets, thinlets, and trinkets are only available in November (after 11/30/18 they are no longer available for sale). You want to place your order now so you won't be disappointed if supplies run out. Stampin'Up! advises that these products are only while supplies last or Nov 30th--whichever comes first.

The Silver-edged cards & envelopes also come in Gold--so if you prefer Gold edged cards/envelopes (item #147901) you can pick the one you want.

*Place your order before November 30th
*If you use this month's Host Code (437B9C7T) when you check out, you'll receive $5 in Stampin'Up! products for each $50 in product that you purchase.

Fastest Gift Tag using Stampin'Up! Snowfall Thinlets

Today we're going to create a gorgeous gift box with the Fastest Gift Tag using Stampin'Up! Snowfall Thinlets!

 I just purchased a cute scarf as a gift and wanted to create a classy package for it...so I started with a Baker's Box (they are white so a great canvas to start the project), added some Poppy Parade ribbon and....wait for it....the fastest most sparkling gift tag ever....here it is: Bakers gift box

The Baker's Boxes come in packs of 8 white boxes (food safe too!) with the clear window on top...so sponging with your favorite ink is quick and easy (I used Granny Apple Green). I used one of the snowflake stamps in the Snow is Glistening stamp set to give some interest. Note: since the box surface is a bit slick and shiny...take care when stamping not to let the stamp move on the box surface. Stamp straight down and lift straight up for best results.

Baker's box stamped side

Tied the box with the Poppy Parade Textured Weave ribbon and then used the medium size snowflake thinlet  (Snowfall Thinlets) to create the base tag.

I added a banner stamped with "For You" (Snow is Glistening stamp set) in Garden Green ink--popped it up with dimensionals and looped it onto 12" Garden Green Baker's Twine (tied this around the Poppy bow). Gift tag

The stamps and thinlets are part of the Stampin'Up! November Only products--these products are only available through November 30th--or as long as supplies last! And they are selling quickly! My advice....order soon.

    *Snow is Glistening stamp set
    *Happiness Surrounds stamp set
