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.
- Black base measures 11 x 4 1/2 inches, scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4
- Flower and Field DSP measures 5 1/4 x 4

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.

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.)
Pictured below: I created a number of these note pads and donated them to a local self-help organization.
Enjoy this short video showing how easily these handmade projects go together.

I’m showing you how to make a Snowflake Splendor Shaker Card. See the directions and video below.
Let it snow! Today’s shaker card makes that happen. Sometimes, shaker cards seem difficult to make. But this new technique is easy. It uses one of Stampin’ Up!’s Clear Envelopes. (I grabbed this idea from one of the presenters at our demonstrator gathering and made it my own.)
My class attendees loved making this card.
- It starts with a Night of Navy card stock base.
- The Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper is cut at 5 x 3 3/4.
- Sentiment — stamped in Night of Navy — comes from Snowman Season stamp set.
- Used Snowflake Sequins and retired Dazzling Diamond for the snow. (I saw another demonstrator use course sea salt as snow.)
- 20 inches of the Misty Moonlight/Silver Bakers Twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack.
- Coordinating bling from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
Be sure to watch the video for a step-by-step presentation of how this card goes together.
Extended through Wednesday, November 25, Stampin’ Up! is holding its Online Extravaganza. Almost everything in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog is 10 percent off.
