3D Thursday - New Home Gable Gift Box

Hey everyone!  Today we have a cute little altered gift box for you.  Do you know someone who is moving into a new home?   Sara Wills over at Sarah's Ink Spot has created a cute box to hold a gift for the new homeowners.  Maybe a gift card or some yummy little chocolates?  Be sure and read through the whole post as you will find a link to the FREE printable directions at the end of it.
Sarah altered on of our little Gable Boxes so the front looks like a house using on of Stampin' Up!s new stamp set with matching framelit dies called Pop On By.  This set make for a super cute pop out card but Sarah has put her thinking cap on and come up with another way to use it.
 A Congratulation banner sits atop the roof.
 The bright cheery curtains hand in the windows along with a bright flower bed in front of the house.  I love that the door even has a little door knob and it's own mail slot.  Shrubs are stamp on both sides as well as on the back.
Sarah also has stamp a little banner that explains what the congrats on the front is for.
I love the bright and happy colors that Sarah used on her house.  If you would like to recreate this cute project then click on the link below to print your FREE directions.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a crafty day!

Hand Delivered - Hostess Set

Hello everyone!  Today is another hot and humid day here in southern Illinois.  Today is a good day to stamp.  I've been playing around with the new Exclusive Hostess Stamp set called Hand Delivered.  Fun, fun, fun stamp set!  However you do have to be a Hostess or have an order totaling $150 to get the stamp set.  What I like about the Hostess sets is the retail on them is higher than what the Hostess has to pay.  Let's take a look at it.
Isn't it C U T E !!!
Here is the card I created using the stamp set and my Stamperatus.  I didn't feel like coloring all the balloons with our Blendies so I used the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and it worked great.  The balloons are a little bigger but hey that's just fine.  The colors of cardstock I used for my balloons were Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, and Berry Burst.
Thanks for looking and have a crafty day!

3D Thursday - Puppy Dog Pizza Box

 Hello!  I do not know where this week went but I totally forgot about it being Thursday until a friend ask me where my post was.  So I apologize for my late post.  Anyway I hope this cute project will make up for it.  Jenn Gulch over at Twins and Twine wasn't able to hop with us last week, but she did have a super cute idea for a box.  This week's project is then her cute little Puppy Dog Pizza Box.  Further down in the post you will find a link for FREE printable directions.
and here it is!  Isn't it adorable! I love her sweet little puppy dog eyes.  Who wouldn't love to have some fun treats inside this cute box!
Jenn used punches and framelits to create this one of a kind box.  Using the Berry Burst Metalic Ribbon really give the box that extra little pop of color to make it stand out.  The mini pizza boxes are just about 3 1/2" in size and I guess if you really loved your pet you could put some doggy treats in one as well.  Want to make one of your own puppy boxes?  Then you are in luck because we have FREE printable directions for you.  Just click on the link below.
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a crafty day!

3D Thursday Blog Hop - Altered Stampin' Up! Pizza Boxes

Surprise!  Since May has 5 Thursdays in it, that means an extra week of craftiness for you!   Our 3D Thursday Team has prepared a fun little Blog Hop featuring Stampin' Up!s Mini Pizza Boxes.  The four of us each have come up with a different way to decorate or alter the boxes.  (Jenn was unable to hop with us, so there are 3 stops.)  We have included dimensions, products and tools used so you can recreate each one.
So on with my project.
C is for Cookie!
I chose a Cookie Monster Theme for my box.
 This box would be just as cute without the added hand with cookie, but I wanted to add a bit more to my basic Cookie Monster.  The hand worked out just as I had envisioned.  I added a mini velcro dot to hold the hand w/cookie to the box.
The boxes are food safe with nice slick insides.  However, I decided to put my cookies in a small cello bag before placing it inside my box.
Using the "Seaside" Embossing Folder, I thought gave a little texture to Cookie Monster.  After running my cardstock through the Big Shot with the folder, I used the backside emboss of the paper, that way the emboss didn't stick out and was more subtle.  I love how the Velcro dot gives dimension and depth to his hand.
Thanks for visiting today and I hope I have inspired you to think "outside" the box.  Debbie Henderson over at Debbie's Designs is your next stop. Make sure you finish out the hop to see all of the creativity.  Click on the NEXT button below to visit Debbie.

Here's the supplies and measurements:

Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Box, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch,  1" Circle Punch (for bite out of cookie), 3/4" Circle Punch, Paper Trimmer, Big Shot, Seaside Embossing Folder, Paper Snips, Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Velcro Dot

Pacific Point - cut (2) 3 7/16" x 3 7/16", (4) 15/16" x 3 7/16" (Emboss each piece of Pacific Point at an angle.)  This gives you the basic box coverage.  I freehanded his arm so there is no pattern for it.
Whisper White, Basic Black, Crumb Cake

Remember today is the last day to order from the 2017 - 2018 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog and Occasions Catalog.

3D Thursday - Easy Origami Treat Holder

3D Thursday is here with a super simple little Treat Holder made from one piece of 6" x 6' Designer Series paper.  Be sure to print off the FREE directions for this project at the end of my post.  This week it's my turn to be crafty.
I fell in love with Stampin' Up!s new Garden Impressions 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Pack as soon as I saw it and wanted to find a way to showcase it.  This was the perfect little project.
The treat pouch can hold a cookie or other fun treat and goes together in minutes.  Since the project uses the complete piece of 6" x 6" piece of DSP there is no cutting involved in the basic project.
 I use one of our Clear Envelope Bags and the seal off of the top making it a cello bag to add my cookie to.  I used some of our pretty new Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to close the top of my bag with.
I hope you've enjoyed my quick and easy project for this week.  Now if you would like you can print the FREE directions below and make your own Treat Holder.
Have a crafty day!

The treat basket that Jennifer created actually has four little pockets in it so it will hold lots of goodies!  Jennifer used some new Stampin' Up! goodies available to customers June 1st.  But if you are a demo you can purchase them now.   (A perk for being a demonstrator)
Here is a top view of the basket so you can get an idea of all the pockets.  Don't you just love that paper shred?  It's called Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie and it's available in our Occasions Catalog.
The sides are decorated with shapes stamped and or cut out using the Sea of Textures Stamp Set and Matching Framelit Dies Under The Sea.
Here's another side view.  And what about those fun little Tranquil Texture Sprinkles!  Gotta get some of those for sure.  It's the perfect finishing touch.  Don't you think.
