Festive Clamshell Gift Box

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a fabulous week! I’m delighted to be back to share another ScrapbookingStore DT inspiration project with you today, created with the amazing December 2022 Scrapbook Kit with Upgrades! I absolutely love the variety of papers and coordinating stickers along with the awesome upgrades in this month’s collection. I’ve mentioned many times before that I love making and giving practical gifts, so I created a sturdy clamshell type Christmas gift box that can be used for years to come. I’ve had handwritten instructions for this in my arsenal for quite some time but had never gotten around to making one until a similar box was featured in a recent Splitcoast Stampers newsletter! Sometimes all I need is a reminder to inspire me! ;)

I constructed the shell and box from CutCardStock Kraft Chipboard and used two coordinating papers from the collection to cover the panels along with some sheer red ribbon from my stash for the closure.

I die cut a rectangular element for the top of the box from Solar White cardstock using a Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Postage Edge Die and layered it on CutCardStock Pop Tone Wild Cherry cardstock. I added the chipboard Santa and a sentiment rub-on from the upgrades along with some Eyelet Outlet bumpy red bling which completed the box top.

Here are shots of the actual gift box, with the shell opened up. I used CutCardStock Pop Tone Wild Cherry cardstock to cover the hinge and inside of the box.

I Love Christmas Sticky Note Holder

Hey everybody! Happy Monday! It’s so hard to believe that this is the last week before Christmas! I’m delighted to be back to share another ScrapbookingStore DT inspiration project with you today, created with the amazing December 2022 Scrapbook Kit with Upgrades! You know how I love creating 3-D projects, and when they make practical gifts, that’s a definite win-win! This type of sticky pad holder has been around for a while but was recently featured in a Splitcoast Stamper newsletter HERE and inspired me to make one! It’s a fast project that could easily be mass-produced to make stocking stuffers or co-worker gifts!

I cut the easel base and panel from CutCardStock Kraft chipboard. Then the fun began assembling and decorating. ;) I used a pretty Christmas floral patterned paper from the kit and layered it on a panel of CutCardStock Scottish Highlands Green cardstock. I embellished the panel with floral, cardinal and sentiment stickers from the sticker sheet along with some Eyelet Outlet bumpy red bling. You can’t tell in the photo, but I popped the cardinal up on mini dimensionals for a little interest.

Like most easel-type projects, this sticky pad holder folds flat for gifting/mailing!

Glittered Ornament

Hey everybody! Happy Tuesday – I hope you’re having a good week so far! It’s turning out to be a busy morning here. I’ve popped in again to share a Kat Scrappiness Creative Influencer inspiration project featuring the Snowflake Ornament Shaker Card Kit which I used to create a stand-alone ornament. I love making ornaments even though we haven’t put up a Christmas tree for a number of years because of our feline rescues. We recently talked about putting up a tree (anchored to the ceiling and/or wall, lol) with cat toys as ornaments! How fun would that be?! We’ve been so busy with the cabin that we decided to start this tradition next year. Can’t believe we didn’t think of this sooner! Okay, okay, back to my project… ;)

I started by coloring the face of the ornament with alcohol markers, coated it with Art Glitter Dries Clear glue, and applied Stampin’ Up Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. I die cut a circle from CutCardStock Medium Blue cardstock with a Spellbinders Standard Circles Small die to use as the back of the ornament. Next, I adhered the shaker base and added Kat Scrappiness Mirrored Clear Confetti Dot Sequin Mix, 3mm Sparkling Clear Droplets and 4mm Sparkling Clear Droplets as the shaker mix.

I adhered the acetate and then the face. I adhered quite a few more 3mm Sparkling Clear Droplets to embellish the snowflake, and added a Really Reasonable Ribbon silver metallic string hanger and blue checkerboard ribbon bow, which completed the ornament.

Christmas Wallets

Hey everybody! Happy Tuesday – I hope you’re having a great week so far! I’m stoked to be back on the Printable Cuttable Creatables blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! This is definitely the time of year to be thinking about gifts, and I’ve made some more Christmas gift card wallets. These are the smaller ones and feature papers from the Christmas Treats Digital Paper Pack which I chose because of the variety of patterns! I love every one of the patterns in this pack!

I made all six bases the same, in assembly-line fashion, from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and rounded the corners on the front flap. I picked out six patterns from the Christmas Treats Digital Paper Pack, printed them on 65# Hammermill copy paper, and cut panels for each of the bases.

I cut the inside panels from CutCardStock Pop Tone Wild Cherry cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the STAMPlorations Christmas Reindeer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I adhered small disc magnets to each one with Ranger distress collage medium and added decorative punched circles as closures to the flaps.

Weekender Handbag

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great weekend and it’s not too awfully cold where you are… it’s pretty darn chilly here but we don’t mind it! I’m excited to be back to share my last project using the ScrapbookingStore’s amazing November 2022 Scrapbook Kit… and now we wait for the December kit! I love the versatility and vintage feel of the papers in this collection. As you undoubtedly know, I’m a huge fan of paper purses and have a growing collection, so I created a fun Weekender Handbag which definitely has more of a vintage feel than seasonal. See what I mean about versatile papers?!

Using the Concord & 9th Weekender Handbag dies, I cut the handbag pieces from two coordinating patterned papers in the collection along with a scrap of CutCardStock Basis 110# Natural cardstock. I assembled the purse and added a small Inky Stamper Papercrafting Velcro closure.

Here’s a shot of the back. Paper purses can be used as is for collections like mine, or they can be used as gift bags to hold a gift card, cash, jewelry, or candy! The possibilities are endless!

Book of Spells & Potions mini album

Hi everyone! It’s Hump Day and I hope you have a good one! I’m happy to be back today to share another DT inspiration project for ScrapbookingStore, created with the amazing October 2022 Scrapbook Kit with Upgrades! Have I mentioned that I really like the coordinating papers and stickers in October’s kit?! Sure makes creating projects a breeze! Mini albums are at the top of my list of loves, and I made a super cute Halloween mini album. Each page has a tag tucked into a pocket so there is plenty of room for photos and journaling!

I created a 3” square mini album from a sheet of 12×12 American Crafts Black cardstock and adhered a 2-3/4” square panel cut from a variety of patterned papers from the collection to the front and to each page, with an additional piece cut for the spine. I added a ‘Book of Spells and Potions’ sticker to the front and a sentiment sticker to each page. Using the Stampin’ Up Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and American Crafts Dandelion and Key Lime, Neenah Crest Solar White, and CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Aquamarine cardstock, I created a tag for each page and tied twine to the top of each.

Assorted Gift Card Holders

Hey everybody! Happy Tuesday – I hope your week has started off nicely and you’re not still too full from your Thanksgiving meal(s)! I’m stoked to be back on the Printable Cuttable Creatables blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I absolutely love creating gift card holders – there’s nothing easier than giving the gift of cash or gift cards because the recipient can buy what they want! I’m sharing a set of three awesome gift card holders today which includes one that’s super versatile and could be used for any occasion. I created Christmas versions with the Christmas Tree and Christmas Stocking Gift Card Holder SVG Files, and a birthday version with the Christmas Present Gift Card Holder SVG File!

Using my Scan N Cut and the Christmas Tree Gift Card Holder SVG File, I cut the Christmas tree pieces from several different patterns of green cardstock in the Keep It Simple Jade 12×12 Collection Pack. I also used CutCardStock Bright Gold Foil cardstock for the star along with Brutus Monroe pink, blue and orange glitter sheets for the ornaments.

Next, I used the Christmas Stocking Gift Card Holder SVG File and cut the stocking pieces from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and a red plaid pattern cardstock from the Keep It Simple Ruby 12×12 Collection Pack. I lightly inked the edges of the pieces with Ranger Hickory Smoke archival ink, then used a piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Festive vintage ephemera (popped up on foam dots), a twine bow, and some Eyelet Outlet red bumpy bling to embellish the stocking.

And last but not least, I used the Christmas Present Gift Card Holder SVG File to create a birthday version of this gift card holder. I cut the present pieces from several different patterns of pink and orange cardstock from the Keep It Simple Mango and Rose 12×12 Collection Packs. I also used Brutus Monroe orange glitter sheet for the bow, and stamped a birthday sentiment from The Cat’s Pajamas Sassy Birthdays stamp set in Memento Rose Bud ink.

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday to you all! I hope you are having a great week so far! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #158 – Anything Goes! You know how I love me some mini albums, and I created this pretty floral one using the Sizzix Bigz Mini Album and Sizzix Mini Album Thinlits. As I always say with projects like this – the assembly is the most fun part! ;)

I die cut the album and pages from STAMPlorations Spring Florals A2 Card Fronts and Darice Dots and Stripes cardstock. Using a variety of Sizzix and CUTplorations dies, I die cut elements from Solar White cardstock, CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Amethyst cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Dark Purple cardstock and Darice Dots and Stripes cardstock to embellish the pages. Several of the pages inside have pull-up tags. I added an arrow and gemstones to the front which completed the album.

And one more overhead angled peek… I sure do love how this turned out! There is plenty of room for photos and journaling!

Mason Jar Treat Box

Hey everybody! A very Happy Saturday to you! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today as a guest designer with another fun inspiration project! I had a large time playing with my Scan N Cut (as I always did) before the touch screen malfunctioned, and created a mason jar treat box featuring the Santa & Deer Brads along with a sentiment flag created from the Christmas Holly Washi Tape! OMGoodness, I’m so smitten – I LOVE treat boxes!

I cut the pieces from Neenah Classic Linen 100# Solar White, CutCardStock Pop Tone Wild Cherry, and CutCardStock Bright Silver Foil cardstock, assembled the mason jar, and tied green twine around the top.

I applied a strip of Christmas Holly Washi Tape to a scrap piece of 80# Solar White Linen, cut it into a flag, and adhered it to the front of the mason jar. I decided it needed some green, so I adhered very narrow strips of Basis Green around the edges of the flag. I then die cut an oval from 100# Solar White Linen cardstock using the Cottage Cutz Double-Stitched Oval die, added Santa & Deer Brads, and adhered it to the top of the flag with Scrapbook Adhesive 3D Foam Squares.

Here’s one more angled shot. So cute! Wouldn’t it be fun to make several of these for a Christmas dinner table filled with treats?!
