A Mini Notepad with "Heart"

Valentine-mini-notepad-giftToday's project is a heart themed mini notepad that would make a sweet gift for Valentine's Day without the calories!

This idea came from a request from a YouTube viewer who was interested in a different theme for a Halloween notepad that I made several years ago.

The Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies (148626) and All My Love Designer Series Paper (148576) made this project go together easily.  Here's the original video tutorial with the instructions.  Just change the designer series paper and add the hearts!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Cut designer paper for outside cover to 2 1/2" x 5 1/2".
  • Cut two more pieces for the accent banners at 2" x 1" and 2 1/2" x 1 1/2".
  • Cut copy five pieces of copy paper to 5" x 2 1/4".
  • You'll need scrap pieces of Crumb Cake and Lovely Lipstick to die cut the hearts.
  • Cut twine to about 15" in length.

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies used in today's project.  Just click the links to shop!

Handmade Cards for a Gift

My niece wanted to make her Mom's Christmas gift so my husband suggested a set of handmade cards. She did an excellent job using my supplies and coming up with ideas.

A set of handmade cards always makes a nice gift!

DIY Hostess Gift for Christmas 2018

Christmas-2018-hostess-gift-1Let's start the week off with an easy hostess gift that you can make for Christmas 2018!

I think tea towels and/or pretty dish towels make great gifts.  I mean, I don't buy these for myself, do you?

This oversized tag takes the place of gift wrap or a gift bag plus has a fun and different look.  You can even use designer series paper instead of the stamped cardstock and it will take less time to make.

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

Here's another example of this same project idea that was made for Thanksgiving last year.  Don't you love how we can make any gift look extra-special with our paper crafting supplies?

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Basic Black cardstock is cut 3 3/4" x 5 3/4".
  • Real Red cardstock is cut 3 1/2" x 5 1/2".
  • You will need approximately 4" x 4" pieces of Crumb Cake cardstock and glimmer paper for the punched pieces.

IMG_1523Getting this designer-look on cocktail napkins is fun and easy and will be a hit at your parties or gatherings this holiday season.

I've shared this idea before but had never tried it with our new Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  As you'll see in the video, you can get different looks depending on what embossing folder you choose.

Take a look at the video and see how easy it is!

You can also see the video here on my YouTube channel.  Did you know that there are over 750 paper crafting and tip videos on my channel?  Be sure to subscribe!

Here is a list of some of the embossing folders that I tried:

Product List

Lisa's Inklings:

  • As seen in the video, you can try embossing two napkins at a time.
  • Any of our Stampin' Up! embossing folders would work beautifully.
  • Gift idea:  Emboss a complete package of napkins, tuck into one of our cellophane bags and add a cute  hand stamped topper.

Make A Little Basket for a Halloween Gift

Hw-candle-basketOh my goodness....when I saw this adorable candle at Bath & Body Works, I knew just the packaging to make for a cute Halloween gift.  This particular style is called a berry basket.  It has open sides and is connected at each top corner with ribbon or twine.  It's tiny but just the right size for this little candle.

Let's take a look at today's video tutorial.

  • Cut designer paper to 2 1/4" wide x 1 3/4" tall.  You will need 4 pieces.
  • You'll  need enough of Basic Black cardstock to a 2" circle punch and approximately 3" x 11" to cut thin strips for filler.
  • You'll need enough Whisper White cardstock to punch a 1 3/4" circle.
