Make A Card with Stampin' Up! Morning Star

Morning-star-stampin-up-cardToday's cardmaking project and video feature this beautiful stamp set from the January to June 2020 Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up!, Morning Star.

It's hard for me to resist cards with stars since my Stampin' Up! team name is the Ink and Inspirations Stars.  This particular card was made for one of my team members and I love the combo of the morning glory with the stars!

Here's the video so you can see the process.  Thanks in advance for taking the time to watch. And, if you haven't subscribed to my YouTube channel, please consider so you won't miss a single video!

Last Minute Valentine Treat Pouch

Last-minute-diy-valentine-giftValentine's Day is tomorrow and if you've waited until the last minute to get a treat or gift together?  Grab a piece of 12 x 12 paper and create this pouch created by a simple origami fold!

This makes a nice size "pouch" that you can fill with treats or even a small gift.

Last-minute-valentine-giftI "sliced" some thin strips of Real Red card stock to use as filler and just tucked a gift inside wrapped in designer paper.  You'll see in the video below (the Halloween version) that there is quite a bit of candy tucked inside. 

Here's the video with the basic how-to.  Just look at all those goodies in there!

You can embellish your pouch however you'd like! These are fun and super easy to make!

Try making this project with any of our 12 x 12 Designer Series Papers that you can find in the Online Store HERE!
