Welcome back to another month of blog hopping with the Seashore Stampers! How appropriate that our theme this month is 3D projects. As you know, I’m teaching a class on 3D projects this very day! (Thank goodness for the wonders of technology, allowing me to schedule this post ahead of time!!)

I love making 3D projects and small gift items. I often give them to my workshop guests and hostesses, and they are great sellers at the seasonal craft fairs I do as well. As we head into the autumn and winter season, there are so many occasions for gift-giving: welcome back to school gifts for students and teachers, hostess gifts for when we attend parties, stocking stuffers, table favours, trick-or-treat goodies … the list goes on! Here’s the gift I made for today’s workshop attendees.

The bag is made with a single sheet of 6″x 12″ DSP. I’ve used the beautiful Mosaic Mood specialty paper. It’s hard to see from a photo, but this amazing paper has a raised texture to it, and shiny accents.

Along the short side of the paper, score at 4″, 5-3/4″, 9-3/4″and 11-1/2″. Rotate and score along the long side at 1-3/4″.

Cut each short score line up to the 1-3/4″ score line to create flaps as below. Assemble your bag by adding Tear and Tape as shown, then decorate as desired.

I learned how to make this project from Nancy Forsberg at Stampin’ BAE (BAE stands Before Anything Else – how clever is that?!) who used the beautiful Come Sail Away paper for her project.

To finish off the bags, I added a shape cut from the Stitched Labels dies, and a stamped image from the Memorable Mosaic stamp set. I filled the bags with all the items my attendees will need for their workshop this weekend, plus a few extra treats!

If you love making 3D gift items like this one, you might want to purchase my 3D Tutorial Package! You can purchase the written tutorials, complete with colour photos, for $12. Or, you can purchase the tutorial package plus supplies – meaning, a pack of Designer Series Paper of your choosing, and co-ordinating cardstock, all cut, scored, and prepared for you – for $30. Just email me to make arrangements! Here are the projects you’ll get to make:

I hope you enjoyed learning how to make this fun and simple gift bag! Thanks so much for reading.

As usual this month I bit off more than I could chew and overcommitted myself, craft-wise. Not only am I teaching a class at my home this Saturday, I am also attending a demonstrator meeting on Sunday, for which I volunteered to teach a make-and-take project AND participate in the card swap. It’s going to be a hectic week to get everything ready, but if I’m going to overcommit myself, it might as well be doing something I love, right??

So, here are the swap cards I designed for this weekend. Card swaps are great fun: all the participants make a set of the same card, equal to the number of people participating (in this case, 14 people). Then the cards get sorted and organized by the amazing swap fairies, so that each participant goes home with 14 different cards, including one of their own. The theme for this swap is Christmas or Birthday, and I just had to go with Christmas.

This card features the wonderful new bundle, Perfectly Plaid, and the co-ordinating Designer Series Paper, Wrapped in Plaid. I’m crazy about this paper! Every sheet features gold foil accents, and the reverse side has delightful holiday designs that remind me of Christmas sweaters. This paper is fantastic and I’m excited to use it on cards, gift packaging and tags, and even items beyond the holiday season! Once I started playing with this paper, I wanted to make cards featuring all the different patterns … which one do you like the best??

The Perfectly Plaid bundle is one of several new stamp-and-punch bundles in the holiday catalogue. I’m so thrilled to see so many punches, because not every customer has (or wants) a die-cutting machine! If you’re a punch fan like me, you’re going to love the awesome versatility coming your way!

The holiday catalogue launches on September 4th, which is when you’ll be able to order the products used on today’s card. If you’re one of my customers, you may already have received your catalogue in the mail – if not, drop me a line and I’ll get one to you!

Happy Stampin’!

I held my second Fancy Folds class on the weekend and it was terrific!! Technically, I held the class twice, because what I learned from the first round of Fancy Folds is that a small class size is key – so I split the group of eight attendees into two groups of four, and held the same class on both Saturday and Sunday. Safe to say I am now super familiar with all these fancy fold cards!!

finished

The Pop Up Slider card is one I’ve been wanting to learn for a long time. The stitched rectangle framelits make it really easy to do, using the partial die-cutting technique to create the flap on the front of the card that slides up to reveal the stamped sentiment underneath.

Pop Up Stage Card

How gorgeous is the Pop Up Stage card? And yes, this magnificent creation folds flat to mail! This card comes together really quickly and is beautiful in person.

Shutter Card

This is the Shutter Card, definitely a challenging card to create. It took a bit of experimenting to make it look the way I wanted it to. However, the amazing effect is well worth it!

swing arm

And finally, the swing arm card. I first saw this card at a demonstrator meeting earlier this year. Again, it’s one that takes a bit of effort to create, but it’s worth it!

If you didn’t get a chance to attend the Fancy Folds class, don’t worry! You can purchase the written tutorials, complete with colour photos of each step, for $12. Or, you can purchase the tutorial package plus supplies – meaning, a pack of Designer Series Paper of your choosing, and co-ordinating cardstock, all cut, scored, and prepared for you – for $30. Just email me to make arrangements!

It was back in the beginning of June, after holding a workshop at the home of a brand new customer, when I realized I didn’t have a single stamp with any variant of “Get Well Soon”. It seemed too silly to be true …. but true it was! Fortunately, a quick review of the annual catalogue revealed the beautiful new Distinktive stamp set, “Healing Hugs”.

Distinktive stamp sets are so beautiful. These stamps are have a special texture that allows them to lay down the ink with varying levels of intensity, giving you photorealistic images with depth and dimension. Just look at these stunning floral images from the Stampin’ Up! catalogue:

You can find the Healing Hugs stamp set on page 80 of your annual catalogue, where you will also find a handy list of all the other Distinktive stamp sets. It’s easy to love this style of stamp, so be sure to look at all the sets to see which ones appeal to you!

In addition to the richly detailed floral images, Healing Hugs includes a terrific collection of “get well”-related sentiments, which is just what I needed last week when I got the news that two dear friends were both ill. It’s always sad to hear that a friend is unwell, but I was glad I could quickly make them some cards and let them know I was thinking of them.

I ended up making two similar cards, with only a couple of variations – using two different sentiments, and using a portrait layout versus landscape. I think the bright colours are a good choice to cheer up the recipients, and of course I am absolutely mesmerized by how gorgeous the flower images are.

These cards were so quick and easy to make, with just one layer and a few stamps applied. That meant I could pop them in the mail right away and get them into the hands of my dear friends. Hopefully these cards will brighten their day.

Do you have this stamp set? Or another Distinktive set? If you’d like to order, contact me today, or shop 24/7 at my online store.
