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!

Reindeer Christmas Card

This is a simple reindeer Christmas card we made in one of my classes recently. It’s a simple card, but it is so pretty. It’s even prettier in person.

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.

I have a video for you today that shows you how to use the Precision Base Plate and Die Brush from Sizzix and Stampin’ Up! I really like using these tools and think they make cutting out intricate dies a lot easier.

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!
