Wishlist booklet with a free PDF download!

Wishlist Booklet

Today I have a free download for you! The new annual catalog is about to come out, and everyone is sure to need a wishlist to keep track of all the new items they can’t live without! A single piece of paper as a wishlist is great, but I thought there must be a way to make a cute wishlist that can hold lots of items and is less likely to get lost. So, I created a little booklet with pages inside that you can fill with all of the items your heart desires. Make one for yourself, or if you are a demonstrator, make up a bunch for your customers.

I’m featured on Splitcoast Stampers!

I was so honored and excited to be asked to write a guest post for Splitcoast Stampers. I designed and created a project I’ve been thinking about for a while. It is a mani/pedi gift box. It’s a fun gift for teachers, teenagers, moms, daughters….pretty much any lady in your life. If you want to make this box for a man, or someone that isn’t in to doing their own nails, you could fill the box with mini note cards or candy or a variety of other things.

Check out the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers here and please let me know if you make this project! I’d love to see what you come up with!

Demonstrator Christmas party and paper poinsettia wreath

Last weekend I got to go to a local Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Christmas party. We heard some tips from some successful demonstrators, made a couple of projects, then played dirty Santa. We each made a handmade gift that we would be proud to give to our best friend, wrapped it up, and brought it to the party ready to exchange (and ooooo and ahh over). If you are a demonstrator near OKC and want to come to our next get-together, let me know!

There were so many cute gifts. I made a poinsettia wreath. I started with a 12″ chipboard wreath base from the craft store, then looped a roll of deco mesh over the base. I tied the deco mesh on with pipe cleaners. Next I made several paper poinsettias I made based on this tutorial I found on YouTube. I attached pipe cleaners to each paper poinsettia and attached them to the wreath with the pipe cleaners. It went together fairly quickly once I figured out what I was going to do. Let me know if you have any questions!

Nail File Holder

Nail File Holder by Stamp with Stephanie

This is a finger nail file holder I made to sell at my craft fair. I think it would be a great stocking stuffer for Christmas! I sold out of them at my craft fair and will definitely be making more for my family and friends.

The original idea came from something I saw on pinterest by Kersten Kreis, and her blog post can be found here: http://scraparound.de/6519/inspiration-art-bloghop-ausgefuchst/

Here are a couple of other colors and designs I made.

Sweetheart Candy Heart Box – Paper Pumpkin Alternative Project

The idea of a candy heart box for a Valentine’s Day project has been swimming around in my brain for a while. When I got this month’s My Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail, I knew exactly what I would attempt to make with it!

Candy Heart Box from My Paper Pumpkin Kit

There are a ton of paper hearts in this kit, and they are the perfect size for a candy box. After some experimenting, I found a way to make, what I think, is a super cute version of the traditional candy heart box. Below is a video tutorial for how to make this box.

A 3 month subscription to My Paper Pumpkin is available at a discounted price of $55 through the end of Sale-a-bration. This means that you can pre-pay for a 3 month subscription and ALSO get a free Sale-a-bration item! Click here to learn more or to purchase a 3 month My Paper Pumpkin subscription.

If you subscribe now, your first kit will ship next month. That means you won’t get this valentine’s kit. However, when you subscribe, you will have the opportunity to purchase past kits, so it’s very possible you can still order the January 2016 kit if they are still available. At the time of this blog post, the January kits are still available as “past kits” to purchase.

Sweetheart Valentine Candy Heart Box

2015 Freaky Fridays – Halloween Pencil Holder

2015-10-22-21.52.29

Here is the final project for my 2015 Halloween video series! It is an idea for a non-candy treat for Halloween. But if you need candy, you can fill it with pixie sticks instead.

(Click here if you can’t see the video above)

Supplies

Measurements
Start with a 12 x 1-1/2 piece of DSP. With the 12″ side at the top of your scoring tool, make a small mark at 4-3/8. Score at 8 and 8-1/8. Turn the paper so that the small side is at the top of your scoring tool and score at 3/8 and 1-1/8. Assemble box, then adhere to a 8-1/4×1 piece of black card stock for stability and extra decoration.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my Halloween series. Check back soon for my Christmas video series!

Sweet Hauntings Self-Closing Treat Box – 2015 Freaky Friday Project #1

selfClosingBoxHalloween

It is time for the first of my 2015 “Freaky Friday” Halloween series. This is a self-closing box that is all gussied up for Halloween treat-giving. I’ve started to see these types of boxes popping up on Pinterest and other photo galleries. They are great because they can easily be opened and closed without tearing up the box. Here is the video tutorial:

Supplies Used:

Christmas Tag Top Note Bag

This is a project I made for a class I had when the holdiay catalog launched. I think this would make a great and practical gift for friends or coworkers around the holiday season.

I sandwiched a trimmed down small paper bag between 2 top-note die cuts. I then used the small oval punch to make the handles.
