Among The Branches Christmas Gift Set ~ Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another week of inspiring projects from the Artisan Team. We're featuring the Among the Branches stamp set and Woodland embossing folder. Hope you have fun hop hop hoppin'...

Here's a little gift set I made. Slip the cards inside the bag for a gift as it is or use one of the card designs and pop a present inside the bag. Super easy and super fun. Don't you love our Balloons Framelits as baubles?? The Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper was great for that!

These cards are made to fit our notecard size envelopes, by the way.

A Little Something Double Slider ~ Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Here's a fun way to use the Square Pillow Box Thinlits! The size and shape of the pillow box had me sold from the get-go AND as it turns out I love it just as much when it's flat.

I made a Christmas party invitation with a fun twist. Those of you who've been around for a while might remember the double slider trend?? Well I'm breaking it out again with fresh new products...

Hello to friends who've clicked through from our September Artisan Facebook Showcase :)

A Little Something + Pillow Box Thinlit Double Slider ~ Susan Wong




Want to make your own? Here's how...

You will need:
Two pillow box cut outs - Smoky Slate
One inner mechanism - Thick Whisper White 3 15/16 x 4 7/16"
Two sliders - Whisper White 3 7/16 x 4"


1) On your inner mechanism piece cut along black lines as shown. They're 1/2" down from top and 1/4" in from side. Add a strip of plastic bag through the slits and tape to make a plastic loop. Not to tight not too loose. 



2) Attach your sliders. One will attach at bottom and one at top on the reverse side as pictured.


3) Stick pillow box together on one egde. Adhere white insides to the Smoky Slate at very edges of the long sides only. Test that it slides and then close remaining pillow box flap. Decorate.

Altered Sweet Hauntings ~ Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

We're in the second week of September and therefore the second week of showcasing lots of cool new products from the Holiday Catalogue! Hope you're enjoying it as much as I am!!

This week as you blog hop, feast your eyes on lots of inspiration with the Sweet Hauntings set. I've made an everyday card using our Note Cards and Envelopes pack. I love how versatile the Happy Haunting papers are too. This card sort of became like a rocket flying past the moon in space!

Howl-O-Ween Treats + Boo to You Goodie Bags ~ Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

If you need something you can quickly reproduce for Halloween, this is it! A few rolls through the Big Shot and a bit of sticking together is all it took for this owlish treat bag. How great would they look en masse with different patterns from the Happy Haunting papers?! Thanks Stampin' Up!

[There are a whole heap of great new goodies in the Holiday Catalogue. Have you got your copy yet? Contact your local demonstrator a.s.a.p if not!]

I added a dot of Crystal Effects to the owl's eyes and snipped the exclamation mark off the 'BOO'. Love the black glimmer paper!

And now it's time to see what Teneale and the rest of the team will freak us out with...
