Favorite Holiday Bundle!

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!!

Details:

  • 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.

I think they add so much to the project!!  Hope you get some ideas and get your stamps out this weekend!

Be sure & go over to Stylin’ Stampin INKspiration to see what their favorites are!

Baker’s Box for Easter

This club’s projects will all center around Easter!

Lamb Baker's Box Createwithcheryl.me

This cute little box (idea is from Mickey Roberts) is simple to make using the Baker’s Box Thinlits.  The size is perfect to hold a handful of Easter treats (it’s a bit smaller than a cupcake).  And don’t you love that lamb?!   I colored him in with my Blender Pen using ink pressed to the lid of the ink pad cover.  I actually separated the “happy easter” from the lamb to make it easier to use for baby cards.  I’ll show you how to do this at Club.

March Club will be Saturday, March 12 at 2 pm at my house in Haiku or Sunday, March 13 at 1 pm in Pukalani.  Guests are always welcome & just need to place a $25 order or pay $10.

Here’s another project I just love:

Work of Art Easter Egg Createwithcheryl.me

This pretty egg is decorated using Work of Art!  My favorite thing is the sentiment embossed using Melon Mambo Embossing Powder!  You can’t see it, but the Daffodil Delight stripes are sparkling with Wink of Stella!

Hope you can join us this month!

Creative Escape Weekend!

It’s been 2 weeks since I returned from a wonderful weekend spent with some dear stampin’ friends on Oahu.  What a fun, relaxing time I had with all of you!  I’ll share some pictures…

Spent Friday swapping, stamping & eating!  Perfect day!!IMG_8799

On Saturday we headed to the Marriott to attend an event called Birthdays & Blessings that was a fundraiser for ACS Hope Lodge.  It was like a mini convention, with the excitement, swapping, and speakers, and Make ‘n Takes!

(8 cards & boxes included!)

IMG_6534

I found something to fit into this adorable Curvy Keepsake Box.  This was the first time I’d used it and I’m in love!  Quick.  Simple.  Adorable.

Everyone is going to want one of these!!  I opened up my Feather Framelits & love them, too!

IMG_65363 X 3 card to match.

IMG_6537Here’s the whole gift set.  I usually don’t use DSP as wrapping paper, but I was using up the last of this batch & it’s so simple to tie everything together.

Thanks for checking in!

Christmas A La Carte…Nov. 8th

I’m excited to finally be able to announce this big event:  Christmas A La Carte!  Crystal, Anne, and I will be hosting this class on November 8, 2014 at the Maui Masonic Lodge in Kahului.

This will be Open House style…come when you can and make what you choose!  The hours are 9am – 2pm.  You do need to prepay by October 22nd.  And bring your own adhesive (or purchase from me at the event). calc_flyer-001As an added incentive…if I receive your payment by October 4th, you’ll receive a cute gift from me!!

Can’t wait to see you at the fun class!!

Making boxes!

Can’t wait to show you the Gift Box Punch Board!!  It’s simple to use & the best thing is…IT REQUIRES NO ADHESIVE! You just punch/score & close the box by attaching opposite sides into the slits!

IMG_6343This fall DSP is called Color Me Autumn DSP. 

autumn dspThe fun thing about making boxes using DSP is that the inside is decorated, too!  But you have to be very careful when you score not to press too hard.  Takes a little practice.

IMG_6342The top 2 boxes are made using Under the Tree Specialty DSP, and it’s perfect for box making!  It’s made of heavy card stock, but it’s beautifully decorated on both sides!  under the tree

If you’re into Halloween, you’ll love the Motley Monsters DSP!!Motley Crew DSP.jpg bigIMG_6344Thanks so much for looking!!  Have a great day!
