Hearts Come Home Pizza Box Christmas Ornament - a case

When I saw this on Pinterest I thought "What a neat idea".  This ornament, was made by Monica Gale here using a Mini Pizza Box.

Although I used a lot of her ideas I did change up a few things.


I started  by sponging the open pizza box lid in Pool Party, and then die cut an aperture in it using the scallop square of the Layering Square framelits.

The die cut images were built on the scallop cut out.

After the houses were die cut, I coloured them with the new blendabilities and applied dazzling diamonds to the roofs and bases of the houses. To make the houses look like the lights were on, I placed some gold foil behind each house.

The house at the end was cut off from the strip and added in the middle and above the other houses. All were added using dimensionals.

The art piece was then added to the inside of the box using dimensionals, and the box was closed.


Above is a close up of the art piece after I adhered it to the inside of the box.

To fill in the space at the front of the box I added some embossing paste and added dazzling diamonds on top of that.

To finish off the ornament, I wrapped the box with  1/2" Powder Pink ribbon and tied it in a bow at  the top.  I added a green pine sprig and a mini ornament tied with silver trim.  I also added some embossing paste to the pine branch.

Supplies Used:
Inks:  Stampin' Blendabilites, Pool Party
Papers:  Thick Whisper White, gold foil.
Accessories:  Mini Pizza Box, Layering Square Framelits, Hearts Come Home Edgelit dies, Green Pine sprig, mini ornament, silver trim, embossing paste, dazzling diamonds, dimensionals, 1/2" Powder Pink ribbon




Woodlands Embossing Folder - a repost

This is a card I made using the Woodlands Embossing Folder after an announcement (2015) was made that this folder was about to retire.  However, a number of us petitioned Stampin' Up indicating that we would like this embossing folder to stay.  And stay it did.  It is our current annual catalogue.

The stamp set shown below did retire.


Here are some other cards made with this folder:












Hope you enjoyed seeing some of the cards I made using the Woodlands Embossing folder over the last  2 years.

Decorated Note Pad with Butterfly Basics

Today I am posting this note pad cover I made 4 years ago for a craft show. I still make similar ones.


I have a craft show next week, so I promised myself I would work on show-related stuff for the rest of the day.
One of my best sellers is the decorated note pad.  This one I chose to decorate with the Butterfly Basics stamp set which will be available Jan. 6, 2015

I have made other note pads that open from the middle, but I decided to make this one open like a book."
For a lot of my craft show items I used retired DSP and this is no exception.

I start with an 81/2 by 11 piece of cardstock and trim 1/4" off the bottom.  On the long side, I score at 5 1/2 and 5 3/4.  Then I decorate as desired.

Here are some other posts related to decorated note pads:
