12 Weeks of Halloween 2017- Week 9- Spooky Cat Treat Box

Spooky-cat-halloween-treat-box-2Here's Week 9 of our 12 Weeks of Stampin' Up! Halloween Projects with this adorable little treat box.  The Spooky Cat Bundle and Spooky Night Designer Series Paper collection have been my go-to supplies for our Halloween creations this season.  I just love that black cat silhouette!

This particular box is just the right size to hold a small treat size Kit Kat bar but you could stuff it full of any sweet goodness you'd like.  The jack-o-lantern is fussy cut from the designer paper.  I cut an entire 12 x 12 sheet to have these ready for any of my Halloween projects.

Let's take a look at the how-to video below.

Click here to view this Halloween Spooky Cat Treat Box on You Tube.

Here are the supplies used in today's project:

Product List

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Cut Foil Frenzy for box at 4 1/2" x 3 1/2".  Score on long side at 1 1/2", 2", 3 1/2", and 4".
  • Turn and score at 3" for what will be your box bottom.
  • Fussy cut the jack-o-lantern from the Spooky Night DSP.
  • You'll need approx, 3" x 3" of Basic Black for Cat Punch.
  • Cut a strip of Cajun Craze at 1" x 4" for stamping and punching the sentiment.

Back to School Notepad Gift

Last night on my Facebook LIVE broadcast, I made two cute back to school notepad gifts for teachers or friends.  Did you see it?

If not, why not join us there?!  Many of you are on Facebook daily, right?  I know that I love seeing so many cute photos of my family and friends there.  

This group was created as a place for us to gather where I can share what's going on in my crafting (and, sometimes, family) world.  It's a "sister" to my Ink and Inspirations with Lisa Brown page...another place you should be! ;)

These are the back to school notepads that I made...

Back-to-school-notepad-1These were designed for a 3 1/2" x 7 1/2" x 1/4" notepad that I found at Target.  It's a good idea for a teacher gift, co-worker gift, or even a stocking stuffer. 

Back-to-school-notepad-2I think this Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper (above) is just right for this project.

Back-to-school-notepad-3The notepad cover above features the Whole Lotta Lovely Designer Series Paper collection.  It's a little more on the frilly side but just as cute!

If you'd like to see the process and are on Facebook, hop on over and join the page HERE!

Another "don't miss out" is my email list!  I'll send emails weekly with project ideas and first notice of specials.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek at this back to school notepad and I hope you have a great weekend!

Tuesday Tip- Clustering Technique

Tip-clustering

For today's tip, here's a fun technique that's easy to do with your clear photopolymer sentiment stamps.  Create an awesome background or partial background for a unique, one of a kind look.

For best results, use a bold color and a lighter shade of the same hue.  Let's take a look at the video...please forgive the static in a couple of places.  I can't seem to figure out what's causing that!

 

See the clustering technique video here on You Tube.

Rubber-stamping-technique-clustering-1Lisa's Inklings:

  • Easier to do this technique by looking down directly over your card stock.  (Recording did not allow me to do that!)
  • Odd number of rows is more pleasing to the eye. 
  • The two rhinestones at the top covered two oops! ink spots. 
  • Try this technique at an angle on your card front.

Makeover Monday Video Tutorial- 2017 Stampin' Up! Graduation Card

2017-stampin-up-graduation-card

It's that time of year again and today's Makeover Monday is a remake of a graduation card/money or check holder.  This is an easy fold that will make a nice presentation if you are going to a graduation party or reception.  Want to put it in the mail?  Make an envelope with the Envelope Punch Board!

The stamp set used for this 2017 graduation card is retiring from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog.  There is only one week left for ANY of the RETIRING stamps to be guaranteed.  Don't miss out on these sets! This one is called "Placed You'll Go" and the sentiments are not the traditional "Happy Graduation" or "Congratulations" but convey the same wishes with fun and adventurous sentiments.

Let's take a look at the video tutorial that inspired today's card.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card stock for base is cute at 6 1/2" x 9 1/4".  Score at 3" and 6 1/4".
  • Cut designer paper for outside and Whisper White for inside at 2 3/4" x 6 1/4".
  • Whisper White is used to stamp main image on front and die cut with large circle from Layering Circles Framelits.
  • To accent the image on the inside and outside of card, an image from the retiring Gorgeous Grunge set was stamped over top in Crumb Cake.
  • Belly Band is  cut at 1" x 7 1/2"
  • About 15" of Linen Thread is twisted and adhered behind die cut circle before attaching to belly band.
