2022 Blessing Box with Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat Bundle

2022-Stampin-up-gathered-wheat-mini-box-and-cardsThe Blessing Box has become a tradition for me to share with you and here's the 2022 version created with the Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat.

The idea behind the Blessing Box came to me when many would often tell me how much it meant to receive a card from me.  And, when my brother told me he'd kept every card I'd ever made for him.  It made me think about those who never receive a little "paper hug" in the mail.  How could that be changed even if only for just a few?

And, so, the Blessing Box was created.  A little box that holds 3 x 3 or smaller cards with a kind phrase, a verse from God's Word, or an uplifting message...just a random act of kindness.  There is no signature, no credit; just sharing in hopes that it will be a blessing in someone's day.

Below is the video featuring this year's Blessing Box. Here's hoping you are inspired to create one of your own.

Here is the list of supplies used for this Blessing Box.

Thank you for your support! Each time you place an order through my online store,  it supports my business and allows me to continue sharing!  I am grateful to serve as your demonstrator.

Now that you have the know-how, make your own blessing box like this one made with Stampin' Up! Gathered Wheat and make a difference!

Bay Window Fun Fold with Gathered Wheat Bundle


Today's project is a bay window fun fold created with the Gathered Wheat Bundle (English) [159843] that was featured during this week's LIVE video over on my Facebook business page and also on YouTube. 

This bay window fold is really easy to do. The biggest challenge can be the cutting and the scoring details but don't let that scare you. Just measure twice before you cut or you score. This card will be well worth the extra time and effort that you put into it.

The Gathered Wheat Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog has some beautiful gratitude sentiments. The fonts are also very pretty.  I think you would really enjoy using this during this season of thanksgiving.

Take a look at the video below. I've taken the liberty of starting it at the point where the demonstration of this card begins. Enjoy and then read on for a few details.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card base is cut 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 3/8, 1 7/8, 3 5/8, 5 1/8,  and 5 1/2.
  • Designer paper is cut 4 1/8 x 6 and scored at 1 3/8, 1 5/8, 1 3/8, 1/4, and 1 3/8.
  • Use scraps of other papers to stamp and/or die-cut. For specifics, refer to the video.

Stampin-up-gathered-wheat-thank-you-card-fun-foldThe simple wheat design is enhanced with two colors of ink...Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry.

It's your turn to try this fun fold with the Gathered Wheat Bundle so create your own and post it over in the comments under this card on Ink and Inspirations with Lisa Brown on Facebook.


Gift Tag or Card Idea with Stampin' Up! Framed Florets


You know how we love sharing gift ideas here on Ink and Inspirations and here's another one dressed up with the Framed Florets Bundle (English) [162407] that was released this week from Stampin' Up!

This time, we are creating a tag that you can use as a card front or embellish a simple gift. This little package was purchased for this project specifically in mind for the Thanksgiving season here in the United States. When you add a fancy tag, much like this one,  just a simple package of dinner napkins that can be used during the holidays becomes something special. It really makes for a pretty presentation.

Doing this also eliminates the need for gift wrap and is just very welcomed by those who receive it as it's such a functional gift.  This project was featured on my YouTube premiere this week, so I wanted to share it here in case you missed it. Let's take a look at the video tutorial.

Lisa's Inklings:


As mentioned in the video, these two gift packs are going to our granddaughter's teachers.  As a former public school teacher, I would have loved a little gift such as this one. These new products from the Fitting Florets Collection are beautiful. Here is another idea HERE.

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies used for this project.  When you order from me, it allows me to continue to share here on the blog and social media.  Thank you in advance!

Let me know if you make a gift tag such as this one and how you plan to use it in the comments below.  Thanks for stopping by today for this gift tag idea with Stampin' Up! Framed Florets Bundle (English) [162407].



Introducing Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Collection and a Birthday Card


Stampin' Up! has just released a new collection which is actually a sneak peek from the January to June 2023 Mini Catalog and it is called the Fitting Florets Collection (English) [163129].

This collection contains a bundle that will be featured in the new catalog and, in addition, to go along with the holiday season, Stampin' Up! is offering some limited-time products that you can use for your holiday crafting!  Included are some really pretty gold embellishments,  a beautiful collection of Designer Series papers, and a stamp set with Christmas sentiments that are great for Christmas cards, Christmas tags, and all of your holiday decor.

Pictured above is a card that was created on a recent live video on Facebook and YouTube. It's a birthday card that utilizes the Framed Florets bundle and the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper [161814]. The set of dies included in this bundle is just beautiful. They contain three oval shapes that you can mix and match for your projects.

Let's take a look at the recording of the video below.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Card Base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, folded in half at 4 1/4 then the front folded back in half at 2 1/8.
  • Add on card front is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

Fall Themed Gift Tag with Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest

Fall-gift-idea-tag-hello-harvest-1Yes, it's another tea towel gift with a Fall Themed Gift Tag using Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest!

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I love to give these as gifts!  When you watch the video, you'll hear all about it and my reasons why!

Upon seeing this particular towel at HL, I knew that it would be a perfect match for this Hello Harvest stamp set and coordinating dies.  Of course, at least two of a kind always go in my shopping cart and who can resist that little truck?  (Here's another truck-themed gift towel from a few years back.)

Now let's take a look at the video from this week's premiere on YouTube.

Lisa's Inklings:

Fall-gift-idea-tag-hello-harvest-2This pumpkin and sunflower combo makes an adorable tag, don't you think?  Even you are unable to find THIS towel or one similar, you are sure to find an orange or sunny yellow towel.  Just think of how this tag would really dress those up!

Are you ready to get started? Here's what you'll need...

2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween Series #5

Halloween-2022-stampin-up-5It's a special Saturday post for you today with our fifth in a series of 2022 Halloween projects.

This project is a little treat bag that is easy to assemble because... guess what? The treat bags are already made for you. You just have to dress it up a bit and we can do that with stamps, ink, and paper. Now, this particular bag is packaging for a teacher gift which is a cute Halloween bar of soap found at TJ Maxx.

Before we start with the how-to, there's an update that must be shared. The Witch Hat Builder Punch that coordinates with the Bewitching Cling Stamp Set (English) [159855] is sold out and no longer available!  But, no worries!  You can still use the stamp set and that little hat is super easy to fussy cut for this and other Halloween projects.

It's not too late to order to have some fun packaging and decorations ready for Halloween. So take a look at the video and see if it's something you can use. I'm all about doing something that's easy and quick and you can make this as easy as you'd like. These little bags are great. And they are special, not just for Halloween, but for any holiday occasion. The cut-out stars are just so cute. And, you can put any backing of cardstock or paper inside the bag as you'll see in the video. Now let's take a look and see how I put this all together.

Lisa's Inklings:

Here are the supplies that were used to create this 2022 Halloween treat bag:
