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!

3D Thursday Is Here With A Cute Snowman Hershey Bar Wrap.

Hello! and welcome to another 3D Thursday!  Today's project was created by me.  I've been working on craft fair treats and the Hershey Bar Wraps seem to be one of my best sellers.  Today's project is the Snowman Wrap I created.
What a fun stocking stuffer this would be.  This little cutie was very simple to make.  Cardstocks I used for this project were: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Lemon Lime Twist.  Punches are a crafters best friend when it comes to making things like this.  So I grabbed my Cookie Cutter Punch and Holly Berry Punch and went about making eyes, buttons and a mouth.  I used a scrap of Red Fleece for his scarf that I had left from another project.
I used the little tag die from the Crate thinlit set to create a sweet little tag and stamped Merry Christmas in Black from the stamp set Seasonal Chums.  I hope you've enjoyed today's project.  If you would like to make your own Snowman Hershey Bar Wrap you can download the Project Sheet for FREE below.
Have a great day!

Stampin Friends - Happy Holidays Hop

Hello!  Welcome to this month's Stampin Friends Happy Holidays Blog Hop.  I hope you have enjoyed the hop so far and have gotten some inspiration for some crafty fun.
Now it's my turn to inspire you.
I decided to have some fun with a couple of the "Ho, Ho, Ho" stamps and created a Santa Suit Card and a Hershey Bar Wrap to match.
Focusing on making buttons from the stamps, I used our 3/4" Circle Punch for the sayings and the 1" Circle Punch for the black background behind them.  The "Ho, Ho, Ho" stamp is from the stamp set "Labels To Love".  Using the "Seaside" Emboss Folder gave the Whisper White Cardstock a fur like look.  Cardstock used: Real Red for the Santa Suit and Basic Black for the Belt and Crushed Curry for the Buckle.  I popped up the buttons and buckle with Dimensional.
A simple "Merry Christmas" stamped on the inside finishes the card.
For the Hershey wrap I used the stamp set from "Oh, What Fun", the 1/2" Circle Punch and the 3/4" Circle Punch.  Since the Hershey Bar was a bit longer than the card I though a beard might be good to add to the top.  Using a "Heart" Framelit from the "Sweet And Sassy" set I embossed it with the "Seaside" Folder and trimmed it before adding dimensionals to it and adding it to the top of the wrapper.
Since I wanted to add a saying to the inside, I tied a piece of Stampin' Up! Gold Trimmed Ribbon around with a tag saying "Merry Christmas".
I hope you have enjoyed my fun little projects and will try some of your own.
This month's Give-A-Way is the stamp set Merry Patterns.
