Celebrate Today With A Quick Tag...

Just have a quick tag for you today.  It is using the "Celebrate Today" bundle.  Because even though it's the holiday season...people are still having birthdays and deserve to be celebrated!  So here is a quick tag...


And a close-up...


Then just take the tag and tie onto the package...easy peasy festive gift!


And P.S...I forgot to grab a basket to fit the gift.  So I just took a piece of chipboard, adhered a piece of DSP onto it...and used that as my base for the gift.  


Hope you enjoy!  Thanks for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions: designwithink@gmail.com.

Acorny Thank You Meets A Pillow Box...

I LOVE the Acorny Thank You Bundle available in the Holiday Catalog.  Swoon!  The acorn is adorable and a coordinating punch...yes please!  Just look how cute it is...


Love it.  I wanted to make a little gift for those that brought friends to my latest Christmas Card class.    And the wrapping just happens to be using this bundle!  Perfect for fall!  Check out what those that brought a friend to the class (as well as their friends!) received...


I kinda love this!  I used the Square Pillow Box, cut off the top flaps, adhered it together...and it makes this cute pouch!  The package of Metallic Gold Twine fit perfectly!  And HOW CUTE are those acorns?!?!?!  Here is the pouch...


And here is the view of the bottom...


And a close up of those cute acorns...


I think this is such a fun packaging idea for anything gift you need!  Let me know if you have any questions: designwithink@gmail.com.  Thanks for visiting!  Hope you enjoyed this project!

October Paper Pumpkin Perk...

Hey there!  Remember all the fun I had with the October Paper Pumpkin Kit?  See THIS POST if you missed it or need a reminder.   This was the amazingly fun stamp set that came with the kit...


So many options with this stamp set, even after the kit supplies are gone!  Here is the card I sent to my Paper Pumpkin subscribers (just one of the perks of being a subscriber through me...a fun bonus card in the mail each month!  Let me know if you have any questions about getting signed up!) ...


Love this fun layout.  The colors:  Pool Party, Hello Honey, Calypso Coral, and Basic Black.

I stamped  my images onto Shimmery White cardstock.  This cardstock is awesome!  Such a fun and subtle shimmer...


So fun and sparkly in real life.  Not sure you can really tell in the photo.


Love the shimmer paper...here I used just a little strip of the Silver Glimmer Paper.  And it adds just a  a subtle elegance to the card.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Letting me know if you have any questions!  designwithink@gmail.com

Grateful Gift Tag...It's That Time of Year!!

I realized I haven't shared the gift I gave to the gals that came to my last class.  I guess I better do that!  Here is their thank-you gift...



I am very grateful for those that take the time to come craft with me.  So I like to spoil those that come!  I thought this was a fun tag that represented this time of year.  And I basically took the idea from the home decor piece I made that I posted HERE.

Color Combo (that I LOVE!): Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon, Crumb Cake, and gold
Stamps I used:  Cheer All Year (feathers), Gorgeous Grunge (splatter on banner), For All Things (acorn background on tag)

Here is a close-up...


And in the cello bag... I put a little bottle of this Shimmer Spray I make.  I think anything shimmer is PERFECT for this time of year!  And it is so easy to make a little paper shred for the inside of the cello.  I just cut some coordinating cardstock into narrow strips, crumple up and add to the bag.  SO EASY!


I hope you enjoy!  Thanks so much for visiting!  Let me know if you have any questions!  designwithink@gmail.com

November Club Card...On a Sleigh Ride!

So I guess it's time for me to share the card we made at club this month!  I already shared the club project in THIS POST.  Now for the card...


This card may look familiar to you.  I got this idea right from Stampin' Up!  Thanks, Stampin' Up! :-) I made a few changes, but it's basically the same card.  I LOVED all that vellum!  (I did add a white layer behind the house layer...the original card didn't have that.  Well, how about I just show you the Stampin' Up! version...


Soooo cute!  See why I wanted to copy it?!  :-)

Here is just a side view of the card we made...


The sleigh ride edgelits are so fantastic!  They definitely make this card pop!

Hope you enjoy!  Thanks for visiting!  Let me know if you have any questions or want to know how my monthly club group works!  :-)  designwithink@gmail.com

November Club Project...It's a Cutie Pie!

Hey there!  It was club week this week!  So today I am going to share the project we made yesterday...


It's get ready for Christmas time!  So we used the Cutie Pie Thinlit to make these fun Christmas trees!  The box still opens (even though we added a little 1" cube for the trunk)...so it's the perfect wrapping for any small gift you give!

Here are a few more pictures...



See how it still opens...


This project was a ton of fun to make!  Hope you enjoy!  If you want to join my club (you can live anywhere in the United States!)...let me know!  Would love to have you join!  Get two free projects each month!  (With instruction sheets!) designwithink@gmail.com.

September Paper Pumpkin Perk...

I have mentioned this before, but will say it again...I LOVE my Paper Pumpkin box!  (This is a fun craft box monthly subscription program that comes to your mailbox each month.) The projects are SO much fun!  BUT...when you have made the projects...you still have an amazing stamp set that you can use again and again!  Yay for stamps!

I have a couple additional perks for my Paper Pumpkin subscribers.  One of them is that each month I send them a card...using the stamp set they get that month.  I don't use any of the consumable supplies that come in the kit.  I just use the stamp set.  This gives them a fun alternate idea they can make with their stamp set.  And I forgot to share September's card!!  It's past time for me to do that...so here goes!

This is the stamp set they received in their kits...


HOW CUTE?!  Right?!?!? So many fun uses for this stamp set!  But here is the card I made...


I had fun with this layout and can't wait to use it over and over.  Washi tape is such a fun and easy way to add some fun texture to your projects...and that's what I used here.  I layered three strips to make the striped piece.  Then just added some fun stamps to the card.  Kinda love it.  :-)

Close-Up...


Hope you enjoy!  If you aren't a Paper Pumpkin subscriber and want to be...let me know!  I would love to get you signed up or answer any questions you have!  designwithink@gmail.com.

Flashback to Halloween...

I forgot to share this notebook I made for Halloween time.  I helped plan this party (I posted about it HERE) for Halloween.  I felt like all of the planners needed a place that we could keep our To-Do lists and such.  So this is the notebook I made for us...


And some close-up's...


I embossed some spider web's on the black cardstock.  LOVE this effect!  


And the best thing about this project...it's so quick and easy!  I just took a Jr. Size Legal pad.  Then just made a cover for it with cardstock.  It wraps around to the back, and adhered to the cardboard backing of the notebook.


Hope you enjoy!  Sorry Halloween has passed, but you could easily make these for any holiday/event/occasion!!!  Or just for every day fun!

Let me know if you have any questions.  designwithink@gmail.com  Thanks for visiting!!

I'm Grateful for Home Decor!

Today I spent some time putting up some fall home decor around my house.  'Tis the season!  I love this time of year...where everyone is focusing on what they are grateful for.  I think that's an important part of every day life, and I am grateful for a holiday that focuses on that.  But back to decor...I'm grateful for home decor that puts me in the holiday mood when I am surrounded by it.  And I am SUPER grateful that I can make my own decor with my Stampin' Up! supplies!  I had a spot where I needed something a little more festive.  So down to my craft room I went.  This is what I made...


Here are a few pictures of some details...


LOVE these feathers!  They are from the "Cheer All Year" stamp set.  The colors I used for this project were: Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey, Wild Wasabi, and Lost Lagoon.  


I just stapled the glittered "grateful" word onto the Lost Lagoon banner so that it would have some movement to it.  

Do you need your own home decor for the holidays?! Make it yourself!  Let me know if you need ideas or if you have questions on anything!  designwithink@gmail.com.  

Thank you for visiting!  I hope you enjoy this project!

October Paper Pumpkin Craziness...

I went a little nuts with this past month's Paper Pumpkin kit.  It was such a fun and versatile kit.  The kit was designed to make 9 cards...3 each of these 3 designs...


How fun, right?!  But I made one of each of the cards and still wanted to play with some different ideas.  So this is what else I made with just ONE KIT!!!!


I made a little treat box/pouch in each of the card styles...




Then I also made a banner with the smaller card pieces...

 

A notebook (I did add just some plain printer paper to make this notebook)...


And then also a frame (I pulled a sentiment from another stamp set to use for this.)...



Seriously...all of this from ONE KIT?!  YES!!!  Kind of impressive, don't you think?  I just want to say...think outside the Paper Pumpkin "box" and see what you can create!  :-)  I LOVE my Paper Pumpkin surprise box I get each month!  Are you a subscriber?!  Let me know if you aren't and want to be!  I have some special perks for my Paper Pumpkin subscribers!  (Like a FREE card each month in the mail, made with the stamp set that came in your kit, a FREE stamp case holder every 4 months you are a subscriber, etc.) designwithink@gmail.com  

Here is a reminder of the cards/envelopes the kit made...




Hope you enjoyed these projects!  Thanks so much for visiting!!!  Go create something today!  It does a soul some good!
