Pretty Spring Gift Bag!

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love Bag - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup
Sometimes I just want to create something different! The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is SO totally gorgeous that it has to be used as much as possible. Today I decided to make a sweet gift bag using an entire 12″ x 12″ sheet of this pretty paper and my trust Envelope Punch Board!

The pattern for the bag is from Sam Donald (Pootles) and can be found here. Her tutorial is so good there is no need for me to reinvent it 🙂 It’s a darling fold-over bag and looks so fabulous made in this designer paper.

To decorate the front of the bag I created a daisy using the Daisy Punch and the backside of the designer paper. Each side of this paper is a gorgeous hand-drawn design and one side has a pearlescent finish. The daisy is placed on a pearlized doily and I’ve added some leaves punched using Lemon Lime Twist card stock. It’s truly easy to create with these coordinated products!

Quick and Easy Framed Art Gift!

Stampin' Up! Hold on to Hope Project - Prettypapercards - stampinup

Framed art makes a beautiful gift, and the Hold on to Hope stamp set makes beautiful framed art!! Today’s project is something you can put together quick. It’s easy but looks like you’ve spent hours creating it! 

Stampin' Up! Hold on to Hope Home Project - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This is such a nice verse from the Hold on to Hope set – it’s perfect to feature in a frame. Stamping the verse in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink makes it crisp and clear. After stamping, the verse was cut with a die from the Layering Circles Framelits and then layered on a Tea Lace Doily.

The background behind the verse is one of the sheets of the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. It’s a lovely understated floral pattern. Do you see the sweet little butterfly? It’s a stamp in the set and has a tiny matching framelit! 🙂

To finish it off, place it in a cream frame and tie it all up with some pretty Stampin’ Up! ribbons and a tag! The tag was cut using a die from the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies. I added a bit of the designer series paper and another stamp from the Hold on to Hope set.

You Are Loved Spring Gable Box!

_Stampin' Up! Spring Gable Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

So I just can’t stop having fun with these Silver Gable Boxes! They are great for spring get togethers! Just fill them with a few different candies and decorate the outside of the box.

_Stampin' Up! Spring Gable Treat Box - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I covered the sides of the Silver Gable Boxes with 2″ strips of the Springtime Foil Designer Series Paper (FREE until March 31st with your $50 order!). Some pretty Smokey Slate 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon and Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon were used together to tie a bow on the top of each box. _Stampin' Up! Spring Gable Box - Prettypapercards - stampinup

A pretty silver foil butterfly was cut using the Bold Butterfly Framelits. Mini Glue Dots were used to adhere the butterfly to the knot part of the bow. It looks like the butterfly is landing right on the bow 🙂  The sentiment is from the new Blossoming Basket stamp set (FREE with a $100 order now through March 31st). It was stamped in Lemon Lime Twist ink on a 1/2″ strip of Whisper White card stock, then the end was clipped with scissors to form a flagged end. The sentiment strip was then attached to one of the tails of the bow with a mini clothes pin!

These Silver Mini Gable Boxes are the perfect containers for all your spring gifts and treats!

I love these boxes! I’m having an event at my home later this month and I’m going to make one of these for each guest!! I’m planning to put wrapped Easter candy inside 🙂

Stampin' Up! Silver Mini Gable Box - Prettypapercards - stampinup

To add a bit of bling, I’ve combined the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon with the 1/8″ Silver Ribbon, All I did was tie a bow around the top of the handle and pull it tight, leaving some long tails. Then I placed a Bitty Bow on top of my bow. These Bitty Bows are just adorable, and they come with glue dots already on the back so you can stick them anywhere!

Little Valentine Gift Boxes!

Stampin' Up! Valentine Treat Boxes - Peggy Noe - stampinup

So I had a ladies brunch to go to yesterday and I decided to take each person one of these adorable little treat boxes! I filled them with candy hearts and set one box on each place. They loved them!

Stampin' Up! Lots to Love Box Framelits - Peggy Noe - stampinup

For the boxes I used the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. The boxes were cut with the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies. I’ve shown you these boxes before and really like them ~ they are for way more than Valentine’s Day!! You can use them to hold lots of small gifts or treats. I’m thinking a tea bag would fit really well too!

Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies
Item No. 145653

Stampin' Up! Valentine Boxes - Peggy Noe - stampinup
This beautiful color I’ve used for the hearts is Berry Burst, one of my current favorite Stampin’ Up! colors. And the ribbon, oh my gosh, I love it, Metallic Edged no less 🙂 These boxes are seriously a snap to make, and I like being able to make a gift quickly, like a hostess gift. You will love them.

Easy DIY Valentine Wreath!

Stampin' Up! Valentine Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Do you like decorating your home? I love decorating the inside of my home, and my front porch. I usually keep a wreath on my front door, and for the past year or so I’ve had a wreath with leaves and little soft white buds. They look like tiny cotton buds. For each season I’ve added some special trim to my wreath. 

Stampin' Up! Lots to Love Valentine Banner - Prettypapercards - stampinup

For Valentine’s Day I decided to hang a small heart banner across the center opening of the wreath. I cut the hearts using the large heart from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies, and I used the fabulous Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper for the hearts.

Stampin' Up! Lots to Love Box Framelits - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I cut out several hearts (one is from plain Melon Mambo card stock) and clipped them onto some of the pretty Gold Love Mini Tinsel Trim with Gold Library Clips. Bling bling!! I simply tied the ends of the trim onto branches of the wreath. Easy!!

Stampin' Up! Valentine Banner Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

When we moved into our home we painted our front door black. It was a bold move but now I’m so glad we did it. It looks good, and everything I hang on my door looks great against the black!
