Stampin' Up! Takeout Treat Box

These little takeout boxes are so cute.  They would make great little gifts or table favors for any event.  I know Valentine's Day is a ways away, but this is what I thought of when I saw it.  You need to die cut two of them and put them together with either Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Tear & Tape Adhesive.

The colors of the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper are so rich and vibrant.  A little goes a long way!, Stampin' Up!, Takeout Thinlits,

These other projects using the Takeout Box thinlit were displayed at the Share Fair on our Alaskan Cruise.  After seeing these projects, I knew I had to get this framelit.

Just click on the photos below to see the posts of other fun gist boxes:

Stampin' Up! Aimee's Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper

My daughter, Aimee, came up with this idea.   She took a piece of vellum card stock, several different ink colors and sponge daubers to create this rainbow effect, blending the colors together as she went. So many possibilities of color combinations!  Each card can be so different.  I chose to feature Berry Burst as the card base and ribbon.  

I hope you give this a try.  There are so many beautiful designs with this paper, the cards you come up with will be fantastic!

Stampin' Up! Holiday Gable Box

One of the new items in the Annual Catalog is the Lustrous White Gable Boxes.  They are great for gift giving.  I decorated this box with the Toil & Trouble designer series paper and Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the upcoming Holiday Catalog.  I love the sparkly ribbon because, well, it sparkles!

Halloween will be here soon.  It's nice to add a home made touch with cards, tags and gift packaging and Stampin' Up! makes it so easy!, Gable Boxes, Everyday Tags, Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up Seaside View

This is a fun suite.  My husband and I love the Caribbean and we love to snorkel.  I love being in and around water. We don't have any immediate plans to travel there, but we will definitely go back someday! 

My favorite part of this card is the little goldfish swimming through the coral.  The fish are a die. I started with doing the wash on the white card stock for the water.  After it dried, I ran it through the Big shot twice to make a larger school of fish.  I adhered a piece of Gold Glimmer paper behind it so the fish are gold.  The sand dollars are die cut out of Shimmer White paper.

I have always loved to read.  I am a true Bibliophile.  I am always reading a book (or two) and feel a bit anxious if I don't have a book or two on my nightstand when I finish the one I am working on.  I don't use an e-reader yet, I love the feel of a book.  

If you help out in your children or grandchildren's classroom, bookmarks would be a fun project to make with them., Stampin' Up!, Bookmarks, 2018 Holiday Catalog
