Craft & Chat Live with Lisa on Facebook will take place on Wednesday (today) at 12:00 PM (Noon) Central Time (1:00 PM Eastern, 11:00 AM MT, 10:00 AM PT). I will be going LIVE on my Ink and Inspirations Facebook business page.
You will see a cardmaking project made with some of the new In Colors from the NEW Annual Catalog!

As a paper crafter, do you enjoy making gift bags from patterned paper? If you have not ventured into creating gift packaging with your crafting supplies, you just might give it a try after seeing how easy it is! And, talk about a great presentation! Who wouldn’t love to receive a gift in unique packaging? That’s half the fun of giving and receiving.
The size of this gift bag made with patterned paper is just right for a small gift or a bundle of sweet treats. You can switch the paper and color scheme and it would be perfect for a baby gift with little onesies or a sleep sack. For the graduate, this World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper [152491 is wonderful...that is,
if it’s still available. It’s on the Last Chance List and is only available while supplies last. Here's another project idea made with this beautiful paper.
Here’s a quick video so you can make one (or, more) yourself.
Here's a quick video for this clean and simple cardmaking idea.

You are probably wondering about this tip regarding futurecasting and card making.
By futurecasting, I am referring to planning ahead for some event or special occasion in the future. There may be certain supplies or stamp sets that are will be just what you need that is available now but may not be available at the time of the occasion or event.
It will be more clear once you see the video below.
That particular set that was shown in the video has been retired for a while. I am so glad that I made that investment...I've used it on several occasions! And, this isn't the only set or supply that I've purchased because I felt that I would want/need it at some point.
Here are some other examples of futurecasting for cardmaking:
This has been a very popular stamp set and the coordinating paper is wonderful but at the time of this writing, is in very low inventory status. So, if you love it, check now (Dandy Garden 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper ) to see if it's still available!
This particular card design was my "mystery stamping event" for our April Stars Team virtual gathering. Since our team is scattered across the country, we love gathering virtually on Zoom to stamp together. You are getting to see the finished project first but the Stars had no idea what the finished card would look like. All that was presented to them prior to the "gathering" was the recipe with cutting and scoring directions. Everyone used their own supplies. Two shared photos of their projects. Take a look at Kristen's and Carol's cards!
Now that you've seen these samples, you must be anxious to make your own! Here is the video!
This 2021 graduate gift card holder was created on Craft & Chat Live with Lisa on Facebook (April 14, 2021.) The somewhat edited recorded version is below with lots of chatter from me as I interact with my viewers. Here's hoping you find it fun while seeing the process of putting the card together!
Now that you've seen these products in action, hop over to the Online Store so you do not miss out! Thank you for tuning in for this 2021 graduate gift card holder and until we meet again, let your light shine! Mt 5:16
Let's kick off Tuesday with an easy technique video for handmade cards using Gilded Leafing from Stampin' Up!
The Gilded Leafing is a jar of beautiful golden flakes, lighter than a feather, that works magic on your paper crafting creations. You've seen a demonstration and sample of this gilded leafing on another project but I have to admit that I LOVE this method and the secret to the "easy" is using our Adhesive Sheets.
Here's the video so you can see how the easy gilded leafing technique is done!
Now that you've seen the video, grab some Gilded Leafing and Adhesive Sheets  and create your own magically gilded card! Thank you for stopping by today for the easy gilded leafing technique video for handmade cards.
It's Tuesday and today we have an easy DIY project with the Stampin' Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley.
I am always on the lookout for tea towels or dish towels that coordinate well with our stamp sets and designer papers. The cactus-themed towel used in today's project is from Dollar Tree! Here's one from last year with an Easter theme.
The color scheme in the Flowering Cactus Product Medley is different from the bright colors on this towel. As you'll see in the video, it was easy to coordinate other Stampin' Up! Colors to match the towel. Watch the video to see the process of this easy DIY gift with Stampin' Up! Flowering Cactus!
Cut coordinating cardstock layer to 2" x 5".
Cut designer paper to match at 1-3/4 x 4-3/4.
You will need a piece of Basic White approximately 4" x 5" to stamp and cut your image.
For the sentiment, a 3/4" strip of Basic White was used and cut to fit.
Today's feature is an Easter card and Easter basket video so you can make these for the little ones in your life.
These Easter projects were first shown on my Facebook LIVE this past Wednesday. I am planning to give these to our granddaughters for Easter. The card has an easy fun fold element when you open the inside of the card. Let's take a look at the video to see the process.
Lisa's Inklings: Card-
Basic White Cardstock  card base- 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, a piece for stamping and fussy cutting, and a 1 x 8-1/2 piece for the fold inside. Score at 2-1/4, 4-1/4, and 6-1/4.
This little Easter basket and card will be perfect for our little girls. Here's another basket design...a tad bit smaller and made from Designer paper. You can see that this basket holds more fun trinkets and treats!
Here are the supplies used to create both of these projects...
Thank you for your support of my small business. When you purchase Stampin' Up! supplies from me, it allows me to continue offering videos and project ideas for you!
Thanks for tuning in today! Now that you have all the details, create something fun to be the light to someone special. I hope you've been inspired to make an Easter card and basket for the little ones in your life.
With St. Patrick's Day coming up, it's a good time for an idea for this fun little treat box.
This is a simple one and a good size for some fun candy treats or even a gift card! Going through my supplies, I found some stamp sets and dies that would be just right to wish someone "top of the day" on the 17th.
There are many shades of green in this Stampin' Up! color realm but this spruce matched my treats, Andes Mints, so that was the deciding factor.
Here's the how-to video so that you can put one of these together quickly.
I think this version with the sentiment from the game on stamp set is just right for my better-half! Those hearts from the kanga dies make a cute shamrock, don't you think?
St. Patrick's Day was always a fun day for me growing up. I was eager to attend my school that day to see all the wearing of the green. Making these little treat boxes and decorations each year brings some of those fun memories to mind.
Hope you have been inspired to try this paper crafting project so now that you've seen the video, give it a try! Have some fun on St. Patrick's Day with these treat boxes that you can create yourself and until next time, let your light shine!
