The past couple of months have been a blur of wonderful holidays, seeing friends and family, and a very busy work schedule.  I’m so happy I had all the wonderful Stampin’ Up! products to help me through the holidays.

Here are some of the Kraft Gift boxes (124106) I used for gift cards.   I used Digital images from My Digital Studio downloads for the box fronts and sides.

This box highlights a sneak peek of one of the new Bigz XL Dies, called Designer Rosette, from the new Stampin' Up! Occasions mini catalog, which many of you have already received from me if you’ve purchased from me in the past year.  This new catalog has over 24 new stamps, several new Designer Series Papers, new jewels and trinket hearts, and several wonderful, new Sizzix Dies, like the one on the top of these boxes.  You can begin ordering from this catalog on January 4.

Gently Falling and Frostwood Lodge

I get a little thrill every time I work with the Frostwood Lodge designer series papers. This project pairs one of the wood looks from Frostwood Lodge Designer Series Papers with the Gently Falling two-step stamp set. 

I stamped the leaves in Soft Suede using the leaf outline from the 2-step stamp set.  Then I stamped with More Mustard as the second step of the Gently Falling stamp set.  Then I used a sponge dauber and ink from the Cajun Craze ink pad around the edges of each leaf.  I tried edging the leaf two different ways.  First I sponged the edges before cutting out the leaf.  Then I tried it where I cut out the leaf and then held the leaf in my hand to sponge the edges.  Both worked equally well and gave about the same results.  Then, after cutting out each leaf, I used my bone folders and slightly curled the edges of the leaf to give them even more dimension.  It made the leaves look much more life-like, in my opinion.  I added one of the Spice Cake designer Buttons in the fun jumbo size.  There were so many sentiments that would look good on this card.  "Grateful" form Always Thankful, or "Give Thanks" from Hand-Penned Holidays. I used Thank You from the Perfectly Penned sentiment set.
Here's the recipe for this card:

I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool from the Holiday Mini Catalog and pleated my topper at 1/4".  I grabbed 5 punches--including my largest circle punches and scalloped circle punches--and quickly formed the  center base to showcase the Jumbo Spice Cake Designer Button.

On the sides of the box I layered Soft Suede, Pool Party and and Very Vanilla.  I used more leaves from the Gently Falling stamp set and added a label and sentiment to the front of the boxes.  These boxes are less that $1 each and come in a four-pack.

Stamping on a Budget

Be sure to check out the Clearance Rack at Stampin' Up! for Valentine products that will really save you money.

I was so pleased to see the little Valentine Bot Treat boxes on sale.  I used several dozen of these last year.  Now you can buy them for a fraction of what they cost by visitng the Clearance Rack at Stampin' Up!.  They come flat and already die cut, 30 to a set.    You simply fold them together and seal them with a seal, which is also included in the kit. 

They are cute as is.  I added  punched hearts out of the left-over paper from the pre-die cut sheets and added ribbon to decorate each box. Look for item 118080 for the girl bot set in Pretty in Pink.  Clearance items are limited quantities and once they are gone, they are gone.

You can also turn the boxes inside out for a more sophisticated look.  One side is plain and is a perfect surface for adding your own creative ideals, or just a little bit of ribbon to dress it up.

The other side includes a To:  From:  section.  I filled my completed boxes with chocolate candies and set them out on my desk at work last year.  Needless to say, my office had a lot of visitors!  Come back later this week and I'll show you what will be on my office desk for treats this year.

You will also find that may of last year's designer papers were also on sale in the the Clearance Rack .  These are a few projects I made last year from the Sending Love Designer Series papers, item number 117153!  Look how cute the treat box is with the card.  Clearance Rack items are only good while supplies last.  Treat yourself to some of these great bargins before they are gone.

Here is another sample card made from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper, 117153. I used two different patters from the 12 X 12 paper set along with Very Vanilla card stock.  The bottom boarder is punched with the Eyelet Border punch, 119853.  Let me know if you have any questions about these project.

 The little treat box was made using the Fancy Favor (115965) Sizzix Bigz XL die and the Big Shot Die Cut machine from the regular Stampin' Up! Idea book and catalog.  I used the Riding Hood Red 1-1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon through a handle I created using the Stampin' Up! World Window punch, 11985.  I used the Pretty in Pink Stamp Writer pen on the ribbon to turn the Very Vanilla strips pink to match the box.  I created the dotted heart by die cutting a Pretty in Pink and a Whisper white heart using the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die, 117332, and punching out the Pretty in Pink heart  with the Full Heart Extra Large Punch, 119883 and framing it with the Whisper White die cut heart.  The wide Red Riding Hood ribbon is held together with a bow of natural hemp twin, 100982.

On this card, I used one of the images from the Girl Bot Treat boxes, shown above, as an image on my card front.

Another great find in the Stampin' Up! clearance rack are these Chocolate Chip treat boxes, 115690.  I decorated this one with Sizzix Swirley Sizzlits Decrotive Strip die, 113456 using the Big Shot Die Cut machine.  In fact, the plain treat box was the perfect size for gift cards or small candy treats and I found myself using them for Christmas gifts, Valentine's Day treats, and even Mother's Day!

Check out other great finds on the Clearance Rack that will add so much to your Valentine's Day projects.
