Candy Cane Lane Mini Cup Treat Holders

A big hello to you all!

I don’t know about you, but the madness is ramping up and I am soooooo busy this time of year at my house!  As December approaches, I like to try and give my class attendee’s a little christmas gift that they can take home with them.  So seeing as it is so busy – my aim is to find ideas that are quick, simple and well…….gorgeous!

I came across these cute little coffee cups and a quick search on pinterest helped me find exactly how to create them, thanks to a UK demonstrator called Heidi Smith.  I loved them, so whipped some up for my class attendee’s for this week and demonstrated how to make them on my Stamp it Sunday live Facebook video.

Gift Box Punch Board for On Stage Roomie Gifts

Hi everyone.

I was back on Sunday Night for a Stamp It Sunday live Facebook video again!

It took LOTS of cups of tea to recover from the fun of our Stampin’ Up! 2016 On Stage Live Event from the 3-6th of November, but it was sooooo much fun!  There are lots of new goodies that I am going to enjoy sharing with you all over the coming weeks to get you creating!

The weather was gorgeous the entire time. And Southbank was buzzing in the evenings!

So for my Stamp It Sunday Video I decided to show you the pillow gifts I made for my room mates!

I had been to LUSH to source something to help the girls relax, unwind and invigorate themselves ready for the new catalogue and next year.  LUSH have the most amazing bath products.  I had come across one called ‘Dragon’s Egg’ in the past and it smelt amazing, all the things I just mentioned for the girls rolled into one delicious bath bomb! So I grabbed a few of those and headed off to my craft room, trusting that my punch boards would help me package these beauties just right!

So out came the trusty Gift Box Punch Board. I honestly have to say that I love how simple it is to create your own special packaging with these Punch Boards. A simple Belly Band and some ribbon later, and our bath bomb was all set to deliver!

The Irresistibly Floral Speciality DSP can be teamed with any colour Designer Paper, but I chose Blooms and Bliss for my Belly Band, a bit of Coordinating Sweet Sugarplum ribbon and a tag finished it all off beautifully. So simple – So elegant! And those Stitched Framelits set EVERYTHING off so well! They are a must for every craft room!

Here are the measurements so you can Make It To –

My gift box is a 10″ x 10″ piece of DSP to make the 3.25 x 3.25 x 3.25 box as written on the Punch Board.

The belly band is made my cutting 2 pieces of DSP 1 3/4″ x 7″ and scoring them both at 1/2″, 2 1/4″ and 5 1/2″.

Join the pieces along the 1/2″ end – joining right sides together. Punch the opposite end of both of the Belly Band pieces using the scallop tag topper punch.  Wrap around your box and secure with ribbon.

Take a look at the video at My Paper Oasis You Tube Channel to watch how its done.

Sweet Stack Project Kit

I have had the Sweet Stack Project Kit sitting around here for AGES just begging to be made, and then when I finally pulled it out to complete it, my Early Espresso ink pad needed reinking – alas – it was one of the few reinkers I had not purchased, so it had to wait a bit longer.

I have been caught out a couple of times – so I vowed never to have to wait to craft again, and have all my reinkers now tucked safely away ready to use when needed!

When I finally got to sit down and complete the project, I was thrilled with the final result.  The kit has everything you need except the ink pads and matching stamp set (highly recommend it) and was super easy to follow and complete! The boxes even have the adhesive already applied for you!

I changed my colours up from the kit and used mint macaron on all my cake edges.  That meant I also had to make my own banner pieces – but I think it was well worth the effort!

And I haven’t added the candles as I want to be able to use it for all occasions.

I also have the Cutie Pie thinlets die so I can make more cake pieces whenever I need to.

Fantastic for birthdays, christmas, gifts…any occasion!

Retirement List Blog Hop

Hello all and welcome to our Eureka Stampers 2015 Retirement List Blog Hop.

You may have hopped over from the talented Carly Middleton, or you may be starting here. Either way, hop on around and take a look at what our talented group has made to say a fond farewell to some of our favourites from the Annual Catalogue.

The great news is that the brand NEW Annual Catalogue is on its way. So make sure you sign up to follow my posts by email (left hand side bar) and / or like my page on Facebook, so you can keep up to date with all the latest news – that way you won’t miss anything!

My project is inspired from another in our team – Maureen Crameri.  She made these adorable little boxes for our team day swap back in February. You can see more of her work here.

Fast forward a few months to my daughters birthday – she wants a Red Carpet Party – these gorgeous boxes immediately came to mind!  A little birthday present where you pull out all the party details on a ‘red carpet’!  I tried to talk her (my daughter) into using Baked Brown Sugar or a similar colour – but she was having none of that – so Strawberry Slush it is! One of our 2013 – 2015 In Colours that is retiring.

I teamed that with our Silver metallic Ink to add some extra sparkle to the numbers from the Memorable Moments Stamp Set!  All the important party information is created using our MDS program…all of which are retiring :'(  I did add a little embossing powder in the end to brighten up the silver a bit more.

These boxes are the smallest boxes using the Gift Box Punch Board, with the folded corners simply trimmed to make a simple box fold.  I attached the ‘carpet’ to one of the inside flaps of the box.  The box is turned upside down for this project to work.  I must admit – getting the folding right was the trickiest part of the box for that bow to sit just right!  The bow is of course made with the Bow Builder Punch from the occasions catalogue, using silver glimmer paper.

Here is the finished product!

This is what the pull out looks like. Its attached to the one of the flaps at the base of the box, and the bow is what you pull to ‘drag’ the information out.  I had to add a white strip to the red carpet so the information could be read clearly. Nothing worse than Party Date confusion!

The box is made using the smallest measurements on the Gift Box Punch Board.  I then added a small ‘slot’ in the middle square using a craft knife.  Then trim off the ‘corner folds’ that help create the box, but leave approx 1/4″ extra from the score line on the left and right sides opposite the slot.  I have completed one side in the picture below – you need to repeat it on the other side.  Those 1/4″ flaps is what you will use to join your box together.

Pictured below are the folds that hold the party information.  For privacy -This is the back view 😉
I used a piece of our real red yardstick and trimmed it 1 3/8′ x 11 1/4″ (long length of card stock).
I then scored it at 1″ intervals.  I needed to trim off excess at the top end that joined to the bow.  The main thing to watch for is that you can see all the information when you extend your strip from your box.

I hope you enjoyed this.  Don’t be too sad with all the retired products….just think about all the brilliant things that will replace them…..I CAN’T WAIT!

Now it’s time to hop on over to the amazing Rebecca Scurr by clicking HERE to see what she has created for us!  I have added all the links below so you don’t get lost along the way 🙂

Happy creating everyone!

Embossing Folder Boxes

I had a lot of fun making these today to ‘pretty’ up my craft room and store my embossing folders and framelits.  These are from ‘Pootles Papercraft’ and you can watch her You Tube how to video by clicking here.  I made mine from smokey slate cardstock, made it a bit stronger by adding an extra piece of coastal cabana card stock, then used Eastern Elegance DSP to pretty it up, and finished it off with some ribbon that I had lying around. So have some fun and Get Crafting!
