3D Thursday - "Pop-Up" Box of Love

3D Thursday is here with a cute little pop-up box that I created.
This week is my turn to design a 3D project.  I wanted to do something fun for Valentine's Day.  I came up with a fun little pop-up box and of course it holds chocolate!  Further on down in my post you will find a link to download and print off directions to make your own little Panda pop-up box.
Here is my project...
I love this little panda! and his little love note.  As you pull open the box he pops up to greet you with a sweet message.  For the pop-up part I chose to use the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration stamp set called Party Panda.  It'a a great little set that has 3 panda stamps in it.  And best of all you can receive it FREE with a $50 purchase now thru March 31.
The little box holds 3 Hershey Nuggets and is a sweet surprise along with the cute little pop-ups when opened.  The sweet little hearts are cut out using the heart framelit from the Wood Crate Framelit set.  The sayings stamped on the hearts are from the stamp set Ready to Pop and are a perfect match.
The box shut, is just as cute as it is opened.  I used the Pop of Pink Specialty DSP (found on Clearance Rack) for my box cover.  Using the bigger of the 2 new Scallop Circle punches, (1 3/8") adds a little frill to the top of the box.  
Thanks so much for checking in today to view our team project for the week.  If you have any questions, please feel free to message me.  I'd also love to hear what you think of my pop-up box. If you would like to order any Stampin' Up! products used in the making of this project or other fun crafty stuff please visit my website to place your order.

Time to Sale-a-brate with my Inky Friends - Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Today starts a great Hop with my Inky Friends featuring products from Stampin' Up!s Sale-A-Bration flyer.  Sale-A-Bration is my favorite annual event where there are special products that can be received for FREE with the purchase of $50.  This year there are 2 products that can are FREE with a $100 purchase.  If you are hopping in order then you have just arrived from the very creative Sara's Blog - Lily Ink Pad.  What great inspiration!
So now it's my turn.  The product I chose to feature is the stamp set called "Happy Wishes".  It's FREE with $100 purchase.
What a great stamp set with so many possibilities!
 For my first card I chose to showcase the "Happy" stamp.  Using the "Petal Garden" DSP Stack for my base, a simple and quick card comes together very fast.
 For this card I used the Memento Black to stamp my main image and colored the flowers in with our Stampin' Blends.  Again using the "Petal Garden" DSP Stack.
 For my last project I wanted to showcase some of the beautiful phrase stamps.  I altered a little jar from Target with a band of Pool Party with the two phrase "I love having" and "a friend like you".  I added a label to the front and decorated the lid.
 Another view of the jar.  Filled with Hershey Kisses makes for a perfect little gift.

3D Thursday is Here with a Cute Castle Treat Box!

Happy Thursday everyone!  Today's adorable project was made by the very talented Sarah Wills from over at Sarah's Ink Spot.  She has created such a fun and whimsical little treat box for us!
the castle itself is made with just a piece of cardstock that has been scored several times and pieces cut from the top layer.  All the character pieces are from the new stamp set "Magical Day" from the new mini "Occasions" Book.  This is just way too cute!
As you can see from the top view, there is a little treat inside.
One of our tiny treat boxes is perfect for the treat.  The box measures 2" x 2".  Adding a wizard to her box completes the look.  Sarah used our new Stampin' Blends markers to color all her images.  Please click on the link below to view and print off the FREE Project Sheet to make your own little magical castle.  Perfect Valentine treat for that little someone special.

Sale-A-Bration 2018 Blog Hop

Hello!  Welcome to our first ever Blog Hop featuring products that you can receive for FREE when you order $50 or more worth of Stampin' Up! goodies during our Sale-a-bration event going on now! Who are we?  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that have no active upline and have come together to form a Facebook group for "orphaned" demonstrators.  If you are following the hop in order then you have just arrived from Terri Stewart's blog - Stamping Hare.  She did a fantastic job!  Be sure after viewing my creations to click on the "next blog" button to hop on to Teri Stewart's blog.  Now it's time to show you my creations using the FREE products "Bubble & Fizz Designer Series Paper"and a stamp set by the name of "Amazing You".  I thought they went together very well.
Let's get started!
I LOVE bright and cheery paper.   When I saw the fun Designer Series Paper in the Sale-a-bration Flyer I knew I had to have some of it.  (I might have even got more than one pack.)  Not only is it fun paper but it also corresponds with a stamp set "Bubble Over" and set of framelits called "Bottles & Bubbles". 
For my first project I chose to use the star DSP from the pack.  I wanted to add some shooting stars as well as some bigger stars.  I fussy cut my words to make them stand out a bit more.  And on the inside...
 A fun spiral of stars!  This kind of card is fun to open as well as fun to make.  Super easy, just punch out a 2" circle and cut it into a spiral and attach to both sides of the inside of your card.  I used some of our Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper to make it more sparkly.
This is my favorite project for the hop.  As soon as I saw the bottles paper I thought that it would make a cute holder of some kind.  I used the larger of the bottle framelits to cut the images out of the DSP.  Wish I could have found some Limeade Chapstick, I will keep looking!
My last project is a little Valentine Card.  The saying again is from the FREE stamp set "Amazing You"  I added some fun layers with punches and framelits to add some depth to the card.
 and on the inside I used the shooting spray again and fussy cut the word "amazing" and added it over the top of the stamped area.  I hope you have enjoyed viewing my creations as much as I have enjoyed creating them for you.   Now it's time to Click on the button below and hop over to Melanie Coverston's Blog- Stamp With Melanie and check out her fabulous creations!

3D Thursday Is Here With A Great Little Organizer

Welcome to this week's 3D Thursday.  Today we have a great organizer for your Stampin' Blends.
Today's fun project is brought to you by the very talented Debbie Henderson and you can find more of her great work over at Debbie's Designs.  Further down in this post you will find a link to the FREE downloadable project sheet.  Here is her project.
Debbie used a sheet of our designer paper and then cut part of the front page to our Stampin' Blends flyer and attached it to the designer paper and slipped it into one of our plastic stamp cases adding another layer afterwards.  I love it anytime something gets reused instead of thrown away!  
Debbie tied a beautiful Crushed Curry Ribbon around the box to keep it safely closed during travels.
What a great project.  Can't wait to make one of my own.  This is a fun and quick project.  
Hope you will give it a try.  Below is the link to the FREE Printable Download Instruction Sheet. 
Supplies are listed in the PDF and can be purchased from my online store.
 Happy Organizing!

3D Thursday - Clear CD Case Calendar

Hi there! and welcome to 3D Thursday.  Where every Thursday I post a project from one of our team along with a FREE PDF that can be printed off with instructions.  Today it's my turn.  I decided it was time for a project for the upcoming year.  What better project to make then, but a calendar.
I purchase some blank CD Holders a few years ago so I dug one out and decided to use it for this fun project.  I purchased my calendars from Vippies.  The more you buy the more you save.  What I love about these calendars is the Holidays and Sundays are highlighted in Red and also they have adhesive already on the back.  They do cost a little bit more but for me it's worth it.
For my color pallet I went with the colors that accented the Designer Series Paper that I used called Petal Garden DSP Paper Stack.  Colors I chose were Calypso Coral, Old Olive, & Whisper White.
The saying is from one of our new stamp sets coming in January called Waterfront.  This calendar was so easy to create that I hope you will decide to make some as well.
Click on the link below to access the FREE printable Instruction Sheet.
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
Since it's almost Christmas let's give one of these away.  Please leave me a comment for a chance to win!  Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Merry Christmas!
