Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Team won’t be making cards. In fact, we’ll be focusing on ANYTHING BUT A CARD!
I’m excited to show you a project that will help you organize your life! My birthdays are all over the place… my computer, calendar, on scraps of paper. Now I have a system to remember birthdays as well as a place to tuck the cards away that are perfect for a special person!
This project was CASED from 2 people: Vicki Wizniuk, who has the calendar inserts on her blog,and Erika Cerwin who came up with this great idea!! They each have tons of great ideas!!
So each month has a pocket for the calendar inserts. Turn the group over & you have the last 6 months of the year!
I’m offering 2 classes next month so that you can make your own Birthday Boxes!
Sunday, August 20 at 3 pm or

I want to show you the projects we’ll be making in the February Cards, Etc. Classes.
Quite a variety! A Masculine Card, Sympathy, All Occasion, and a gorgeous new box that I want you to try out.
The box is called Window Box and it’s the size of a large cupcake. So pretty!! There are so many ways you can embellish it and I’ll let you decide how you want to decorate it. You’ll have different colors to choose from and a variety of ribbon.
The Baker’s Box is the perfect size for a stack of cookies or a cupcake or handful of chocolate (my favorite!)
I just love this sentiment & think I’ll use it a lot! It’s meant to be used on the inside of a card, I think, because it actually starts with the word “because”. First I inked up my stamp & tried to erase it using a blender pen. I still saw a shadow when I stamped it, so I had better luck just inking the stamp using my marker.
Hope you are inspired to get some of those Embellishments! They’re so much fun to work with!
Be sure and check out what the other gals on the SSINK Design Team have created! You’re sure to get some great ideas!!
Today’s post at Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration is all about 3-D!! Cards are wonderful, but I especially love creating 3-D items!
I started with 3 items that I gave to my downline, The Maui Big Shots!, for their September challenge: Halloween Night Specialty DSP, Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper, and orange sequins left over from My Paper Pumpkin. Everyone is supposed to create something using these items (& whatever else they want to add). Here’s what I came up with:
A Baker’s Box! I plan to fill this with something very special for my newest recruit, Helen! She’s just the sweetest person and enthusiastic & full of ideas! You’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to see what the others did for this challenge.
In the meantime, be sure & take a look at what the SSINK Team has come up with! I’m always inspired by their creativity!
You’re in for a treat today! The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team Members are focusing on their favorite bundles from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.
The first thing I knew I was ordering was the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set & Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Bundle! This set comes with Santa, a bear, an Eskimo, Gingerbread Man & a Reindeer…and all can be punched out with one punch! Love it!!
Stamps: Cookie Cutter Christmas, Oh What Fun
Inks: Crumb Cake & Early Espresso
Paper: Crumb Cake Base (5 1/2 X 11, score at 4 1/4), Real Red (5 3/8 X 2 3/4), Candy Cane Lane DSP (5 3/8 X 2 1/2)
Details: Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, Mini Jingle Bells, Candy Cane Lane Baker’s Twine, Layering Ovals Framelits Dies
After seeing how cute this came out, I decided to decorate a box to go along with it. To be filled with goodies! I found these White Gift Boxes (3 X 3 X 3) in the Holiday Catalog that are sturdy & food safe & they have an acetate sleeve that slides on! That is so cool because you can make these ahead of time & fill them later on when you’re done baking.
Don’t you love it?!! Perfect size for my white chocolate peppermint fudge!
