New Catalog Debuts Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Ombre Gift Bags

Tuesday, May 4, 2021, can’t come soon enough! Stampin’ Up!’s new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog debuts that day! My wish list is long.

New Annual Catalog Debuts Tuesday, May 4, 2021

As a demonstrator, I was able to preorder from a selected list of products. This list included these In Color Ombre Gift Bags (get twenty bags — four each of five colors — for $6). They feature Stampin’ Up!’s brand-new 2021-2023 In Colors (from left): Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent, Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen, and Fresh Freesia.

In addition, I:

  • used the Brilliant Wings Dies to die cut coordinating butterflies from the new 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum. This stuff is gorgeous! I am in love! (Purchase the stamp set and dies as a bundle and save 10 percent.)
  • stamped the bags with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set;
  • embellished with the coordinating Open Weave Ribbon; and
  • added an embellishment from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Hint: I used the Stamparatus to stamp the image on the bags. This allowed me to stamp the whole stack in a short period of time.

Daisy Lane 2021 Calendar

These 2021 desktop calendars make great gifts. Easy to make, they can be adorned and embellished with any number of stamps, papers, dies, and/or punches.

These calendars make use of the Daisy Lane stamp found in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I l love that this set also coordinates with the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch. Also, the calendar on the right uses the Playful Alphabet Dies.

Both feature the Flower & Field 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper which is a free item you can earn from Stampin’ Up!’s upcoming Sale-A-Bration promotion. Beginning January 5, this package of 12 sheets (2 each of 6 double-sided) designs is available free with a $50 purchase. Look for a host of other stamp sets and papers available free with minimum $50 and $100 purchases before tax and shipping.

  • Flower and Field DSP measures 5 1/4 x 4
  • Bumblebee is cut at 5 1/4 x 4 for both the top and bottom pieces

Easy Wine Bottle Tag

Easy Wine Bottle Tag

The holiday countdown begins! Just 10 days until Christmas Day of 2020. You may still be purchasing and wrapping gifts. Or, maybe you’re finished. You might be baking, and you might be creating and sending holiday cards.

And, you might receive a last-minute invitation. Or need a last-minute quick gift. Wine, liqueurs, and sparkling water make great host or spur-of-the-moment gifts. A quick and easy wine bottle tag spruces up the gift. Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating products make this quick, fun, and festive.

Today, I share two different tags. Many of the products can be found in Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog or the holiday mini Be sure to watch the video for visual instructions.

Easy Wine Bottle Tag

  • Basic card stock color of your choosing: 8 inches x 3 1/4 inches, scored at 2 1/4 inches on the horizontal side.
  • A piece of coordinating Designer Series paper cut at 5 x 3 inches. I used Heartwarming Hugs for the tag on the left and Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper for the tag on the right.
  • 1 /2 inch circle punch to create the hole for hanging.
  • Detailed Trio punch for rounding the edges.
  • Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch (left) and Christmas Gleaming and Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (right).

Please note: Many of the products in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog retire. Stampin’ Up! announced a Year-End Closeout Sale last week. Check the list which includes some products up to 50 percent off. But supplies are limited, so some availability may be limited.

Check out the video for visual instructions.

Easy Handmade Sticky Notepad Holder

Are you looking for an easy-to-create teacher gift? Or stocking stuffer? This easy handmade sticky note holder fits the bill perfectly. I list directions below. Be sure to watch the video at the end of the post for visual reference.

Easy Handmade Sticky Note Holder

Start with a piece of card stock measuring 8 inches by 3 1/4 inches. Score at 2 inches, 2 1/2 inches, 5 1/2, inches, and 6 inches. Fold on the score lines. Stampin’ Up! offers 50 different colors of card stock. Imagine the possibilities! Choose a coordinating Designer Series Paper or vice versa.

Place the sticky note pad in the middle of the card stock using Stampin’ Seal+ or Tear and Tape.

Adhere the Designer Series Paper pieces measuring 3 inches by 1 3/4 inches to the front card stock flaps.

Select a stamp set sentiment to adorn the holder. For the above holder, I used the “Smile” sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set and the Boho Indigo Designer Series Paper.

Use self-adhesive velcro dots to create a closure for the pad.

The holder below features Stampin’ Up!’s Christmas Gleaming stamp set, the coordinating Gleaming Ornament Punch Pack, and the Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper. These three products retire at the end of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog period. This means you won’t be able to purchase them from Stampin’ Up! (Just a note: At the time of this post Wednesday, December 9), the punches and Designer Series Paper are discounted during the 2020 Year-End Closeout Sale. (The Year-End Closeout is while supplies last or through January 4.)

Easy Handmade Sticky Note Holder

Pictured below: I created a number of these note pads and donated them to a local self-help organization.
