Packed For Everything
OK, I got some of you confused. Yes, there are 4 stamps in the 'Packed for Everything' bundle. I should have said 'bundle' to begin with. That would have eliminated most of the questions. In the new Occasions mini, there are 4 single stamps. Each stamp has several images on it based on the theme. Packed for birthday has things you might find at a birthday party and such. Packed for Dad has things a dad may use: watch, grill tools, remote, pocket knife, etc. Packed for Mom has mom things: purse, makeup, jewelry, shoes, etc. Packed for Baby has baby things: teddy bear, bib, bottle, ABC blocks, etc. Each stamp costs $9.95. You can buy just the one you like and will use the most.
You can also choose to buy more than one. You can get all 4 in the bundle for $29.95. Which is why I said that if you buy 3, you get 4. It should have read; if you buy 3 then you should get the bundle and get all 4. Why have all 4? Glad you asked. Maybe mom is more of a handyman than a dressy gal. She might have a screwdriver, pocket knife or baseball cap on her card. Perhaps dad is the crafty one. He might like scissors. Maybe baby needs keys. Could be dad or mom's birthday. Keys as a hint for a birthday gift....or wishful thinking anyways. Think of the possibilities. I plan on it. New cards to be posted in the next few posts.
I signed up to do the Blog Hop for vc_rocks. It's all about using fancy folds and 3-D items. Here's a couple things I did recently. Be sure to click on VC_Rocks blog to see all the blogs with great ideas.
This is the card closed. It's 4 inches by 4 inches all folded.
This is the inside. The Happy Birthday stamp can be found in the Age Awareness stamp set #135381
It's a photopolymer set (clear and very sticky) $15.95. You can purchase it from June's Stampin' Up! website
I call this card a box fold because it folds like you would close a box when you don't have tape.
Be careful when tucking in the last corner. Since this card doesn't have open edges, it would be a great place to add confetti to surprise someone.
Here's a cute candy box that you can add a gift to. It's the perfect size for some tootsie rolls, other small candies, chap-stick, lipstick, etc. I made it with the envelope punch board. I started with a piece of the All Abloom paper #133…
Wanted to tell you about the birthday party I did. The party was for a girl just turned 10, her friends and siblings. They each used the Butterfly Basics stamp set, our kraft notebooks and washi tape. Most of the tape came from Stampin' Up! but I picked up some locally too. I have to say that I won't be doing that again. I got 3 rolls from Stampin' Up! for $5.95 and they coordinate with each other and our colors. I did pick up the newest set from the Occasions catalog. 5 rolls (5 yards ea) for $7.95 Sweet Dreams Designer Washi Tape Colors include: Basic Gray, Crisp Cantaloupe, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Sahara Sand # 137787
Here's the sample I made using the Sweet Dreams Set:
When I stopped by the local drug store, I found that their rolls had 5-8 yards each but they were $3.99-$5.99 per roll. I was super disappointed that I paid that much (total without tax- $14.97) for 3 rolls just so I could have some bolder options. The girls had fun though and I did too. In add…
Remember the last Treasure Hunt? You saw my post, collected the clue, went to the Late Night Stampers (LNS) list and viewed other blogs on the list, collected clues from those, made a list, gathered 50 clues, and emailed me your list of clues. I then put your name into the drawing and some people won free stuff. I also offered blog candy on my blog and drew a name for a free roll of ribbon. This time will be the same but we'll draw for something else. I love giving away free stuff! Don't you love getting it? Here's the image for the Treasure Hunt.
You will find this image on each of the clues. Your list of clues will include the clue and who's blog you found it on. As a bonus, you will get to see lots of great samples and techniques. My clue for the Spring Treasure Hunt is the Simply Scored. I have owned other scoring tools in the past but this is the best one I've tried. I own the basic Simply Scored which has score markings every 1/8th inch, uses a stylus with …
