December 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative

I absolutely loved the December 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit – it made a bunch of little boxes (perfect for cash or gift cards). Take a look at the projects as they were designed: Here’s a close up: The colors are so fun!! And do you know what the best part was? Each box and overwrapContinue reading “December 2022 Paper Pumpkin Alternative”

January 2023 Stampin’ Up! Updates

How was everyone’s New Year? Ours was quiet (well, except for the fireworks). Here is to 2023 – deep breath and no comments – moving forward! I wanted to just hop on and give you a few updates for January. The new mini catalog (and Sale-A-Bration catalog) launch this Thursday, January 5th. If you haven’tContinue reading “January 2023 Stampin’ Up! Updates”

You know that I love a good gift card holder – the more creative, the better. If you are running towards the end of the week and need to make your gift receivers squeal with delight when they open that gift card – check out some of these designs from the past year: Phew! That’sContinue reading “Gift Card Holder Round Up”

Tag Roundup

With Christmas being less than a week away, I can imagine that some of you (definitely not me – I’m just guessing here) are running around, buying last minute gifts and trying to get the wrapping done. Here’s a quick tag we made at an event I held this past weekend. I named the gatheringContinue reading “Tag Roundup”

Timeworn Thanks

I thought I’d jump back to my favorite black, white, and gray color scheme for a card. I’ve been knee deep in Shaded Spruce, Real Red, and Garden Green for my Christmas crafting – I needed a break. This thank you card uses ink but no stamps – just an embossing folder. I saw aContinue reading “Timeworn Thanks”

Pop Up Gift Box Card

I saw this adorable gift card holder and had to give it a try – what do you think? Super cute. I saw this from another paper-crafter, Tanu – her video is here. I made one, too – my measurements are in inches if that is more helpful. To make this project, you’ll need theContinue reading “Pop Up Gift Box Card”

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Holder

You may be asking yourself at this point in the week, “Why is Jen using retired products?” Because I have so much of them! And this was for a craft fair! If I have to be honest, I bought the Buffalo Plaid stamp when it came out (how many years ago?) and this was theContinue reading “Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Holder”

Love Treats Kit

I’ve typed it here before – and I’ll type it again; I love treat boxes! Check out the latest addition to the great Kits Collection from Stampin’ Up! This month’s kit includes:  Who would you give these out to? I can think of a few people (or 20 or 40) I’d hand these out to!Continue reading “Love Treats Kit”

Kit Kat Holder

What’s square, adorable, and has room for both a Kit Kat and a gift card? This treat holder! This little treat holder is perfect for giving something sweet (aka Kit Kat) with a little extra (aka gift card, cashola, etc). This design is based on something I found on Pinterest (don’t you love Pinterest?). AContinue reading “Kit Kat Holder”

Hershey Nugget Sleeve

I was lucky to have been a vendor at a wonderful craft fair hosted by St. Frances Cabrini Church over Thanksgiving weekend. There was something for everyone there. I had a great corner spot and was able to share my absolute love for paper crafting with those who passed my tables. I thought this weekContinue reading “Hershey Nugget Sleeve”
