This week I went to Target to see if I could find some fun candy to put in the new Baker's Boxes from the holiday catalog.  Do you remember last year when I did two cute packages with fun apple shaped candy?  If you missed it, click on Fall Friday 2017 Week #5     I didn't find that candy but I did find the delicious Werther's Pumpkin Spice soft caramels.  They are so good!  I am glad I needed them for this project or I might have eaten the whole bag!

I used one of the Baker's Boxes on page 49 in the holiday catalog.  These boxes are the perfect size to put candy or a baked goodie in them (they are food safe).  I wanted a designer series paper that had a fall color and found this one in the Festive Farmhouse designer series paper.  Yes, I found it in a Christmas pack!  It is amazing to me at times how versatile Stampin' Up! products are.  I am so happy they are!

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow

  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 4 at 2" x 4 1/8"

When you put the strips that go around the box you are going to need to do a little bit of trimming.  You can see in the pictures below where you need to trim your paper.

I used the 3/4" circle punch to cut the designer series paper on the front of the box that is overlapping the cut out already on the box.  

I used the beautiful Detailed Leaves thinlits to cut out the leaves.  Did you notice on the green leaf there is embossing on it?  I used our Embossing Mats to make it.  You can take any framelit and make it an embossing framelit.  I used Linen Thread and made triple bows on each set of leaves.  On the leaves on the front I added one of the copper Leave Trinkets that are in the annual catalog.

Fall Friday 2018 Week #1

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Takeout Treats stamp set #147858, Toil & Trouble DSP #147531, Layering Oval Framelits #141706. 5/8" Burlap Ribbon #141487, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
Welcome to my Fall Friday's!  Every Friday from today until October 26th, I will have a new fall project to share with you.  I will be making 3D projects, cards and a scrapbook page.  I am so excited to share these projects with you.  

Last weekend I was out looking for some new fall decorations for my house and came across these Belgian chocolate drenched Oreo cookies.  They are wrapped in cute foil papers.  I wanted to make a box for them with the new designer series paper from the holiday catalog.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Takeout Treats stamp set #147858, Toil & Trouble DSP #147531, Layering Oval Framelits #141706. 5/8" Burlap Ribbon #141487, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Aren't they so cute? It is really easy to make this box and it only takes one sheet of cardstock.  Here are the directions:

  • cut paper at 8 1/2" x 9"
  • on 8 1/2" side score at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8"
  • on 9" side score at 2 1/8", 4 1/4", 6 3/8" and 8 1/2"
  • see diagram below on how to cut your paper

Here is another picture of what it will look like once you have cut the score lines and cut off the dark squares and how to put the box together.  

StampinUpOreoBoxStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

I used the Toil and Trouble designer series paper to decorate the outside of the box. 

  • cut 2 pieces at 2" x 2"
  • cut 2 pieces at 2" x 4"

To make the tag I used the Takeout Treats stamp set and stamped it with Cajun Craze ink.  I cut out both layers (Early Espresso and Whisper White) with the Layering Oval Framelits.  I used one of the pieces I cut off from when I made the box for the Early Espresso piece and tied it on with a piece of Linen Thread.   I love to save paper when ever I can.  The bow was made using the 5/8" burlap ribbon.

Falling For Leaves Bundle (CT #161)

 

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Falling For Leaves stamp set #147680, Detailed Leaves Thinlits #147921, Bundle #149938, CASEing Tuesday #161, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stmapinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
Happy Tuesday!!! It is time for CASEing Tuesday!  Today I am showing you a sneak peek to one of my favorite stamp sets in the new holiday catalog. 

Fall time is my favorite time of the whole year.  I love the smells, especially bon fires, the cool weather and the colors of the leaves changing and sweatshirts.  The Falling For Leaves stamp set and coordinating framelits are so pretty.  I can't wait to show you this bundle and play more with it more.

Here is our inspiration picture for this week.

34397549_10213553043914848_8261193912513724416_n

Did you notice the embossed leaves on the card?  I made those with the framelit that is meant to cut out leaves.  How did I do it?  I used our new Big Shot Embossing Mats.  You can take any framelit and use it to emboss your paper!  How awesome is that!  I can't wait to try it with other framelits.  

To make the card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Cajun Craze

  • cut at 5 1/2" x8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 3 3/4" x 6 1/2"

Blackberry Bliss 

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 6 1/2"

Mossy Meadow

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Very Vanilla

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Falling For Leaves stamp set #147680, Detailed Leaves Thinlits #147921, Bundle #149938, CASEing Tuesday #161, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stmapinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

On the Mossy Meadow paper I stamped the leaves with the Mossy Meadow ink.  I then took my bone folder and ran it back and forth on the edges to make them roughed up a little bit.  When I put my adhesive on the back of the paper, I made sure I didn't go all the way to the edge.  I wanted the edges raised up a little bit.  Once it was adhered to the card base I raised the edges up by running my finger under it and bending it up a little.

For the sentiment I stamped it with Blackberry Bliss ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  On my envelope and inside of the card I stamped the leaf in Blackberry Bliss ink.

My Thanksgiving Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings stamp set #144790, Painted Harvest stamp set #144783, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
 

I just love the Count My Blessing stamp set!  I am excited to say that it is one of the products that is being carried over to the new Occasions catalog.  It is now being offered as a bundle in the Holiday catalog, but will not be a bundle in the new catalog.  So, if you want to save 10% now is the time to do so. 

This year I did the triple stamping technique on my Thanksgiving cards for my family.  This is a fun and easy technique that is so striking once you put it all together.  

To make this project you are going to need the following products:

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"
  • cut at 3 3/8" x 4 5/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
  • cut at 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

To do this technique you will want to put your three white pieces together (you will need one of each size above) but only with a little bit of adhesive.  What I do is put maybe a 1/4" piece of snail adhesive on the back of each piece and then tap the adhesive with your finger to get most of the stickiness off.  You want them to just be held together while you stamp and then you will take them apart.  

Once you have your three pieces together you can begin your stamping.  I stamped my sentiment, from the Count My Blessings stamp set, first that way I could see better where I wanted to put my flower.  A little tip for you for the green ferns is that I rocked the stamp from side to side while keeping it firmly in place.  This will help get the image on all three layers of paper.  I know, I just told you to rock your stamp!  LOL  The reason you don't want to rock your stamp, that you can get shadows around your stamped image. 

2 more days until Black Friday!!!  Are you a person who goes out and shops on Black Friday.  We sure are!  To help you with your shopping Stampin' Up! has their Online Extravangza going on now through November 26th.  See all the details below.

As you may have already figured out, this post is coming out a little bit later than normal.  I have to admit that I have been spending time with our daughter, Emily, who is home from Texas.  We haven't seen her since July, so I am enjoying as much time with her as possible.  

Are you baking today for Thanksgiving?  We will be making our pies today!  I love to bake and we are going to try a new recipe this year.  A pecan pie cheesecake.  Doesn't that just sound delicious?  I can't wait! 

We go Black Friday shopping every year and have a lot of fun.  This year will be very different as Erica won't be able to come home for Thanksgiving because she has to work.  We are missing her so much.  Tomorrow morning Mr. Wonderful will go get a newspaper so we can look at everything that is on sale and make a game plan from there.  I know you can get everything online, but it just isn't the same.  We always have all the ads spread out on the family room floor while we watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and make our list.  

One thing we do ahead of time is go out the weekend before and look for things, try on clothes, so we can go and just get what we want and not have to worry about that.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fantastic day!

Thoughts and Prayers and Jar of Love Fall Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Thoughts and Prayers stamp set #127805, Jar of Love stamp set #141587, Layered Leaves Embossing Folder #143704, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3 D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

One of my customers and dear friend, Stacy, had a workshop with me and wanted to use the Jar of Love stamp set for her cards we made.  As soon as she picked the date I had an idea on how to use this stamp set with a fall theme.  When I started making this card it didn't have any texture and I really didn't care for it.  I kept thinking, how was I going to make this better?  Then I thought about embossing it with one of our folders, but I already had the strips on the left taped down onto the card base.  Why not do it with the strips already there.  Either it was going to turn out good or really bad.  Thank goodness, it was good!   Yay!  I love how it turned out and so did Stacy.  I have used this technique quite a bit since.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Crushed Curry Cardstock #131199

  • cut at 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Pumpkin Pie Cardstock #105117

  • cut at 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Wild Wasabi Cardstock #108641

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 4 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I am not sure if you noticed that I used a piece of the Cajun Craze cardstock the same size as the front of the card.  If you would like, you can emboss the front panel of the card instead of adding an extra piece of paper.  

When you are stamping the stems, the one on the left is stamped using the whole stamp.  However, on the right I didn't ink up about 1/2" of the stem on the bottom of the stamp.  This will give you two different heights of the flowers and still keep them within the jar.  The water in the jar was made using Soft Sky ink and  stamping it off first on a scrap piece of paper before stamping on your card front.  You want to make sure that it is light, but that you can still see it.  

I stamped one stem of the flowers in the inside of the card on the bottom left hand corner and on the envelope.  I used Stampin Dimensionals to pop up the stamped image and the Wild Wasabi cardstock. To complete the card I added a triple loop bow using the Linen Thread.

Fall Friday Week #9 Final Project

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! shadow box, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I finally made my fall shadow box!  I have been wanting to make one of these for the last couple of years, but time just kept getting away from me.  I took a day or two and worked on just this and it was so much fun!  I haven't just played in my craft room for a long time and it was so nice.  I am usually crafting with a purpose, which I truly enjoy, and with this I just started making little squares to see what could I come up with.  

I used a lot of current product, but also some retired stamp sets.  The acorns in the upper left hand corner are colored with the new Stampin' Blends markers that will be available on November 1st.  All the printed paper paper is from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper in the holiday catalog.  

Every time I look at this I pick a different square that is my favorite.  Which one is yours?  

Last December I shared with you the other two shadow boxes I had made for the Christmas season.   Here they are again, so you can see them all together.

It is so funny to go back and look at how I edited the photos and my old watermark.  Nothing like going right up to the edge of the projects.  LOL

Thank you for stopping by every Friday to check out my Fall Friday series.  I have had so much creating projects to share with all of you.  It means so much to me that you would take time out of your day to stop by.

On Monday, November 6th I will begin my Merry Christmas Monday series.  

Have a great weekend!

Fall Friday 2017 Week #8

 

 

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Spooky Fun stamp set #144749, Painted Harvest stamp set #144783, Mini Pizza Boxes #144645, Everyday Label Punch #144668, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman
 

I can't believe it is week #8 already of my Fall Friday Series.  I have had so much fun creating projects to share with all of you.  Make sure you check back next week for the final project.  I have been wanting to make one of these for the last couple of years and finally made it. I can't wait to share it with you.

This week I decorated the pizza boxes that are in the holiday catalog. I haven't really played with them until this week and I am not sure what took me so long.  They are so stinkin' cute! For this project I decorated one as a halloween box with chocolate in it and the other one is more fall with eight 3 x 3 note cards and envelopes.  Stampin' Up! brought back the 3 x 3 envelopes, which I am so happy about.  

Did you notice on the box with the sunflowers on it, that I stamped right on the box!  It was so easy as the boxes come flat and then you fold them as you want to use them.  With them coming flat it is great for storing them.  You know what else is great?  They are food safe! So, you can put any homemade little treat inside the box and your food will be save.

To make the Halloween box you will need the following products:

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut 2 at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Pumpkin Pie Cardstock #105117

  • cut at 3 1/8"x 3 1/8"
  • cut 4 at 7/8" x 3 3/8"
  • cut at 3" x 4" to punch out two labels

Spooky Night Designer Series Paper #144610

  • cut 2 at 3 x 3" one for the top and one for the inside
  • cut 4 at 3/4" x 3 1/4"

Whisper  White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 x 3"

The pumpkins on the front are from a piece of the Spooky Night designer series paper and I fussy cut them out.  

The tag is from the Spooky Cat stamp set and punched out with the Everyday Label Punch from the Holiday catalog.  Below is a picture of how I did the orange pieces behind the tag.  I finished the tag off with the new Black Rhinestone Jewels that are also in the Holiday catalog.  I sure hope they carry these over to the annual catalog next year.  The tag and pumpkins are adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals and everything else is adhered with the Snail Adhesive.

StampinUpEverydayLabelPunch2017HolidayCatalogStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

 

To make the Painted Harvest box you will need the following products:

Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272

  • cut 8 at 3" x 6" score at 3"

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut 8 at 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" 
  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Soft Suede Cardstock #115318

  • cut at 1" x 11"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 8 at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
  • cut at 3 1/8" x 3 1/8"
  • cut at 2 1/2" x 8 1/2" this is for the flower and leaves on the front band

To give the flower on the band a little bit of sparkle I used Wink of Stella on it and the leaves.  I used Fast Fuse to adhere the band together and the flower and leaves on the band.  I wanted to make sure they stayed together as the band will be taken off and on.  

Here are some more pictures of the projects

It has been a wonderful week for me this week!  To start with on Tuesday I was promoted to Silver Elite with Stampin' Up!  I have been working really hard to get the promotion and I still can't believe I did it.  I was so happy I was crying and Mr. Wonderful asked why do women do that, cry when they are happy.  I told him that it was because that is the way God made us.  Now, I will be the first to admit, I cry at everything and I mean everything!  

Then on Wednesday night I had my first team meeting.  I would not have been promoted without these wonderful ladies.  I can't thank them enough and am so blessed to have each and everyone of them on my team, but more importantly as my friend.  They mean the world to me!  

I will admit I was so nervous about the meeting, I wanted everything to be perfect for them.  It went perfect and was so much fun!  We already have our next two meetings planned and  I can't wait!

Last Saturday was our 29th wedding anniversary, but it didn't work out for us to celebrate last weekend.   We are going to spend the day together and finish it off with going to a hockey game in Columbus. We both love to watch hockey, so I am really looking forward to it.  

Thank you for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

You are not going to believe where I got the inspiration for this scrapbook page.  I was in Kroger getting groceries and thought I would go check out the Halloween/Fall section.  You never know I might find something I just couldn't live without.  Oh My Goodness, I found exactly that.  Sitting there were two coffee cups with leaves on them.  What is so special about that you ask?  Let me tell you!   They were the same leaves as in our Vintage Leaves stamp set and in Stampin' Up colors!!  I almost shouted out loud with excitement when I found them. I think my husband at this time thought I had lost my mind.  LOL  

The colors were Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry, Tranquil Tide, Chocolate Chip and Cajun Craze.  I just couldn't believe it.  My first thought was, that would be such a pretty scrapbook page with all of those colors. Then my mind went crazy with ideas on how to use those colors together on other projects.  Below is a picture of the coffee cup.  Of course, I had to buy one.  You can never have too many coffee cups.

I wanted a fall saying on this page so I went to Google and read a bunch, I mean a bunch and this one caught my eye.  All the things I love about fall, right there.  It was perfect.  Here is a close up of the poem so you can read it better.

Fall Friday 2017 Week #7

stampin up, Stampin" Up! Sweet Home Stamp Set #140936, Labels To Love Stamp Set #144967, Spooky Cat Stamp Set #144749, Home Sweet Home Thinlits #140279, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Look how cute this Halloween layout turned out!  Every quarter I have my Scrap Along class where we make 3 two page scrapbook layouts with different themes.  Our themes at my class last Saturday were Halloween, Fall and Thanksgiving.  I always have so much fun creating pages for these classes.  

To make this layout I used three different stamp sets, Sweet Home from the annual catalog and Labels to Love and Spooky Cat from the 2017 Holiday catalog.  All the products I used on these two pages are in the current catalogs (annual and holiday), except the paper I used to make the house.  The paper was in the 2016 Holiday catalog called Halloween Night Speciality Designer Series Paper.  You could use Smoky Slate paper and if you wanted our Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  Do you see the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape on the bottom of each page? How many ghost do you see peeking around the corners?

To make this page you will need the following products:

Pumpkin Pie 12 x 12 Cardstock #145483

  • you will need 2 sheets

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut 6 of 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"
  • scraps for the bats (7), door, window, cats, oval and 2 punches from Pretty Label Punch

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #1119683

  • scraps for the windows

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • scraps for the ghost (3), Happy Halloween, Trick or Treat and the label on the bottom right hand corner

Did you notice the roof on the house?  It is not a piece of paper, it is a stamp!  For this part I laid my house where I wanted it to go and then I stamped my roof.  It is much easier to stamp the roof first then adhere the house.  The house, window, ghost, and bats are cut out using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits. 

The cats were punched out using the Cat Punch that coordinates with the Spooky Cat stamp set and the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper.  If you buy the stamp set and punch as a bundle, you can get it at a savings of 10% off!

For the sentiment on the house and the top right hand corner I used the Spooky Cat stamp set.  The sentiment by the cats came from the Label to Love stamp set and I used the coordinating punch, Everyday Label.  To get the black layer behind the label, you are going to punch out 2 black pieces.  One piece you are going to cut it in half horizontally and the other one have vertically.  On the piece you cut horizontally you will also trim off the edges.  Adhere these pieces to the stamped image and you have made a background label for the white label.  See picture below.

I adhered everything with snail adhesive, except the ghost by the house and both sentiments on the right hand page.  For those I used Stampin Dimensionals to give them some dimension on the page.  

Here are some additional pictures.

Now that we have the kitchen finished we are working on finishing the upstairs.  We are going through everything as if we are moving, which we are not, and Mr. Wonderful is painting the closets as we empty them.  He only has two more to go, but one of them is the master walk in closet.  Yep, that one is going to take us awhile to go through.  We have new carpet coming in a few weeks and we have to get rid of a lot of things so we don't have so much to move. Thankfully they are going to break it down into 3 days so that will be a big help.  

I am very thankful that all of this will be done before Thanksgiving and before when Emily comes home.  We are sad though because Erica will not be able to come home for Thanksgiving this year and we are not sure about Christmas.  This will be the first time in 22 years that all four of us will not be together.  I know our kids are suppose to grow up and go out on their own, but do they have to move so far away?

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
