Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home Lip Balm Holder
When people come to my classes and events, I always like to treat them with a little packet created with Stampin’ Up! products. Mostly, it’s candy or chocolate, but I changed it up this time and made lip balm holders featuring the Sailing Home Bundle of products.
This started with a piece of Night of Navy card stock cut at 5 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. It’s scored (on the longer edge) at 2 1/4-inches from each edge.
The center piece measures 1 inch by 3 inches and is scored at 3/4 inches on each side. I used a bone folder to loosen the fibers on the paper so it has a little bend where you can place the lip balm once the edges are attached. I used Stampin’ Up!’s Tear and Tape and applied a little piece on each of the 3/4-inch pieces. I matched up the score marks and adhered the center piece to the inside middle of the card stock. I’ve included a photo below of the finished inside.
I decorated the front, back, insides, and back spine of the holder using pieces of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. I recommend using the Tear and Tape here again, to ensure the paper is stuck down well. I decorated the outside with a verse from the Sailing Home stamp set (stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Sahara Sand card stock and die cut with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits).
When the holder is closed, I punched a small circle through both sides and tied a piece of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine to close the packet.

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Suite
For each class or event I hold, I love to surprise the attendees with a treat packet — usually filled with chocolate! This last week, I held a class featuring products from Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalog. One of the brand-new suites is Come Sail Away. It’s filled with a great variety of coordinating products including the Sailing Home stamp set, Smooth Sailing Dies, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Sail Away Trinkets, Baker’s Twine, and more.
This package starts with Stampin’ Up!’s Clear Tiny Treat Boxes. They measure 2 x 2 x 2, so they are great size for small favors. And, they are a blank canvas. You can decorate them any way you wish. And, they’re a great value. You receive 16 boxes for $7.50. They make great favors for weddings, baby showers and birthday parties.
I used the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to decorate the outside panels of the box. They are square, and are cut at just under 2 inches each. (These pieces were actually scraps from another project, and I was able to find a great use for them!). I decorated the front of the box with the anchor from the Smooth Sailing Dies cut from Silver Foil Sheets. I added a bit of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine on the front. Inside the box, I added shreddie and a fun chocolate treat. I wrapped it all up with the Linen Ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack.

Stampin’ Up! Mini Gable Boxes, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, Timeless Label Punch, Beautiful You
Each time I hold a class or event, I love to treat the attendees with some kind of treat packaging — with chocolate inside, of course! Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Gable Boxes are fun to decorate with Designer Series Papers, ribbons, and sentiments. They are perfect for baby shower and bridal shower treats and would even work well for wedding favors. These boxes are retiring from Stampin’ Up! catalog and won’t be available after June 3. You receive 12 boxes for $8.
I decorated the boxes with the 12 x 12 Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (this paper is retiring). I used four pieces: 2 cut at 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches and 2 cut at 1 3/4 x 4 inches. The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Day stamp set and is punched out the new Timeless Label Punch.
Be sure to check out the retiring products. Stock up and get your favorites before they’re gone (or have to pay inflated prices on eBay!)
Last Chance Retiring Items

Stampin’ Up! May Baskets
Do any of you remember May Day? Did you bring treat baskets to the neighbors’ houses, ring the bell, and run? I’m not sure if anyone even does that anymore! I’ve made these for a class and have a few leftover for our neighbors. I’ll ring the bell, but I probably won’t run!
I used Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Cups available in the Occasions Catalog. You get ten cups for $8.50. These will be retiring, so you’ll want to grab a package a two. They’re very fun to decorate for a variety of occasions. A couple of months ago, I made one for dog treats. See that post here.
I added a handle using a strip of Pineapple Punch card stock measuring 8 1/2 inches by 3/4 inches. I glued that strip to the inside of the cup using Tombow Glue. The Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper worked well for the May Day theme. I used the template provided by Stampin’ Up! I’d love to send one via email, if you’re interested. Then, just fill and deliver!
Thanks for stopping by today. Happy May Day! To see a list of products used, scroll to the bottom of this post. Each photo takes you directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.
Stampin’ Up!’s Fable Friends Easter Trio
I just love to get packages in the mail, especially when they’re from my talented team member Beth Doty. She loves to make treat packets and fill them with chocolate, and she even includes my husband.
Here’s the trio of goodies I received a couple of days ago. She’s paired Stampin’ Up!’s Fable Friends stamp set with the spring-like Gingham Gala 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.
Good news: The Fable Friends stamp set will be carried over and will be available in Stampin’ Up!’s new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog (you can order from it beginning June 4). The Gingham Gala 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper is still available, but it will be retiring soon. If you like this palette of pastels, order soon.
Thanks for stopping by today!
