Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hello
Happy Saturday morning, November 2, 2019! It’s bright and sunny here and heading toward the mid-80s in Mesa, Arizona. It hasn’t been difficult getting used to the weather here! I’ve been out and about attending networking groups to meet new people and make connections. I try to bring a fun item to share made with Stampin’ Up! products, and, of course chocolate.
These Ghirardelli treats are my go-to item. They are quick and easy and cute and can be dressed up in any way for any holiday or event. This one features the stamp set Harvest Hellos and the Apple Builder Punch with the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.
Start with a strip of your favorite Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/2 inches by just under 2 inches. Score at 2 5/8 and 2 7/8 inches. Trim both ends with Stampin’ Up!’s Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Fold on the score lines. Insert your chocolate. I usually add a little adhesive to keep the chocolate in place. Close the package with coordinating ribbon and decorate the front.
For my meetings, I package in a cello bag and include either a business card or a free class pass. Everyone loves a little chocolate!

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! Daisy Delight/#143669/$17
April showers bring May flowers! That’s the old saying, right? So, it’s nearly time for getting those flowers started! And, those seeds need some cute packaging.
Stampin’ Up!’s Daisy Delight Bundle provides the perfect product to create this springtime “treat” holder.
I started with a piece of Pineapple Punch card stock measuring 6 inches x 3 ¾- inches. I scored it at 3 inches, folded it in half, and stapled the side together. I then adhered a piece of 2 ¾-inch by 3 ½-inch square of Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper to the front.
I stamped the daisy image twice in Pineapple Punch ink onto Pineapple Punch card stock and then punched it with the Daisy Punch. With a glue dot, I layered the daisies together to create a flower and popped it up on the front of the packet. I topped it off with a Gold Faceted Gem Rhinestone.
So easy to create and so cute to give!
