  • Choose a stamp set, designer paper, and ink to determine your colors.  The details below are as used in the video.
  • Gray Granite 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock [146983] is one piece of card stock cut in four pieces at 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.
  • Whisper White 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock [100730] is one piece of card stock cut in four pieces at 4 x 5-1/4.
  • Cut a 2-1/2 x 6 piece of designer paper to cover the envelope flap.  You can accent with strips if you wish.  For this project, a 1/2" strip was used.

2020 Crafter's Gift Guide: Cardmaking Kits

Blank 2000 x 2000-4If you're shopping for a gift for a crafty person in your life, these cardmaking kits are all-inclusive with everything that is needed to make some beautiful handmade cards.

This first kit is one of my favorites!  The completed cards are awesome with beautiful gold foil accents...the Looking Up Card Kit.
This kit makes 15 cards, 3 each of 5 designs, using the included Looking Up Photopolymer Stamp Set.  Folded card size is 4" x 6".

It comes with a classy looking box and all you'll need to do is wrap a pretty red bow around it and add a gift tag. The printed cardboard box is 9-1/4" x 9-1/4" x 1-7/8".

LOOKING UP CARD KIT (ENGLISH)

This box also makes for great storage for the completed cards.  And, as you can see, the stamp set comes with some super sentiments.  You can even use sentiments on multiple labels.  Need more birthday cards?  Just use the birthday sentiment on more of the labels. 

Here is another kit that I thought would make a great gift.  It's the Simply Citrus Card Kit.

This kit has a fun and flirty feel. Included are supplies to make 15 cards, 3 each of 5 designs, using the included Simply Citrus Photopolymer Stamp Set which is also included.  The folded card size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".
The kit includes 9-1/4" x 9-1/4" x 1-7/8" printed cardboard box ready for gift giving...just add a pretty ribbon!

SIMPLY CITRUS CARD KIT (ENGLISH)

Just as in the other kit, this set of stamps is very versatile!

Shop for that special someone who loves crafts and choose the Looking Up Card Kit or the Simply Citrus Card Kit from Stampin' Up!

DIY Christmas Gift Tags with Stampin' Up! Tag Buffet

DIY Christmas Gift Tags Stampin' Up! Tag BuffetFor this week's Facebook Live, my husband, Jackie, and I teamed up for another "kit together" for some beautiful DIY Christmas Gift Tags. 

This kit from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog is called appropriately, Tag Buffet.  There is a coordinating stamp set sold separately but honestly, you can create these tags and use on your Christmas gifts without the stamped sentiments.

Originally, I had asked Jackie to just punch out the tags and images and sort them for me.  When he asked if I wanted him to put them together, of course, I wasn't going to turn him down.  Here's the video from the Wednesday Craft & Chat on Facebook. 

In the video, you saw that you can also use these tags to make Christmas cards. 
Here is a look at those cards which would be great for sending to family or friends!

Socks for Christmas? Unique Christmas Gift Packaging and Fun Technique Video

Unique-diy-christmas-gift-packagingGetting socks for Christmas is not always fun but with this unique gift packaging with a fun technique, the gift will be extra special.

Of course, after watching the video you may think of many other ideas and gifts that would be just as fun in the packaging idea. 

Let's take a look at the video which first aired last Wednesday on my Craft & Chat on Facebook.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Trimming The Town Designer Series Paper [153491] is cut with two pieces at  5-1/2 x 2-1/8 and two pieces at 2-5/8 x 2-1/8.
  • Cut coordinating strips of this designer paper with two pieces at 1/2 x 5-1/2 and two pieces at 1/2 x 2-5/8.
  • Be sure to watch the video for the technique with the 6" X 8"  Cellophane Bags [102210].
  • Ribbon to tie cello packaging is cut at about 8" for each of the four pieces.
  • I think it's best to wrap the ribbon around the carrier and partially tying the bow before cutting.  Better to have too much than too little and everyone ties bows differently.

Do you know someone who will enjoy receiving a gift in this packaging? Here's what you'll need.

I hope you enjoyed this gift packaging idea!  Check back tomorrow for another idea!
