Make A Small Gift Box for a Candle

Diy-small-fall-gift box-stampin-upLet's start the week with a fun project...a gift box for a candle from the Target Dollar Spot! (I think it's still called by that name!)

Anyway, if you are a Target Shopper, then you are familiar with this area of the store which is usually near the entrance.  Our daughter, Kristen, and I went shopping the other day and I had to check out all the fall goodies in this area.  These candles came in several colors with several sentiments and scents...cost: $3.  As a former classroom teacher, I know that I would have loved a little gift like this so I purchased two for Mia's preschool teachers.

Of course, there needed to be a sweet box to hold this candle and the Pretty Pumpkins Bundle [156478]  would make the perfect accents.

Below, you can see the how-to video which is a recording of my Craft & Chat with Lisa LIVE broadcast on my Facebook page.

Who do you know that would love this gift?  I am thinking that I should have purchased more than two!

2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Gift Coupon Folder

2021-Stampin-Up-Christmas-gift-coupon-folder-1Today's project is a 2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Gift Coupon Folder that made its first appearance on my YouTube premiere this evening. This idea came to me when thinking of Lyla and Mia, two of our grands, and how much they appreciate experiences and special "Honey and Papa" time. 

Since I did not have the Penguin bundle and it's not available for order, I thought that this designer paper that was earned for FREE as a Sale-A-Bration item would be perfect for this project.

Watch the video then make a list of all your young and young at heart family and friends that would appreciate this little gift!

Simple Spotlighting Technique for Card Making

Simple-spotlighting-cardmaking-technique

Here's a sweet project with a simple spotlighting technique for card making.  This card and video have been ready to share for quite some time and the linen thread is no longer available.  I'll share an alternative during the video.

About the technique...

There is a spotlighting technique that is a little more "detailed" but this method is really easy and I think you will enjoy it for your cards.  Here's a close-up look...

Simple-spotlighting-cardmaking-technique-2Let's take a look at the video tutorial so you can try it!

Alcohol Marker and Vellum Technique for Cardmaking

Sept-16This week's YouTube Premiere featured an alcohol marker and vellum technique for cardmaking.  This is a really fun technique and you may find yourself doing it over and over.  There will be a supply list below but it's important that you have 99.9% Isopropol Alcohol.  This link takes you to the brand that I purchased from Amazon.

Alcohol-vellum-technique-stampin-up-1There's just a touch of this technique on the card above.  Can you spot it?

The second card was a remake of an anniversary card that I made for Jackie.  You will see the comparison in the video.

Christmas Treat Cone with Peaceful Deer

Christmas-treat-cone-peaceful-deer-1Today's project is a Christmas Treat Cone with the Stampin' Up! Peaceful Deer Bundle (English) [156391] and a remake of 2021 Stampin' Up! Halloween project, as promised.

I've always said that you can take almost any project and re-create it for any occasion.  I love challenging myself to do that!

This cone is super easy to create and would be fun at each place setting for your Christmas tablescape.  Fill it with mints or nuts or even a tiny gift.  Just change the paper or color scheme for a more elegant look or to match your decór. You could even add some twine and hang from your Christmas tree.

Let's take a look at the details...

Christmas Treat Cone with Peaceful Deer

Christmas-treat-cone-peaceful-deer

Aren't the glittered horns a fun accent?  Sometimes just the smallest detail can make a big difference.

A bit about adhesive... On this type of project, it is best to use a strong adhesive because you are rolling the paper and want it to "stay put" quickly.  I recommend Tear & Tape Adhesive [154031] and Stampin' Seal+ [149699].

Here is the Stampin' Up! Supply List for this project:

Product List

The Peaceful Prints Specialty Designer Series Paper [156628] can only be earned as a Sale-A-Bration choice for FREE with a $50 order in product by September 30, 2021.

Thanks for tuning in today for this Christmas Treat Cone with the Peaceful Deer Bundle and I hope you will create your own version for this holiday season.
