Everybody loves treat boxes, and especially with the holidays coming (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas) there are PLENTY of occasions to use treat boxes! Well, Stampin’ Up! has you covered with the Parcels & Petals Bundle! I’ve been playing with the parcel box die and want to show you now to make your own parcel box!
I continue to be amazed at how versatile this bundle is! The dies in this set are out of control ~ 9 very different dies! I love the box die, but I also love the lacey die, and the stitched label die!!
So what would you put in your box? I’m just crazy about chocolate kisses, but I’d love to hear some other ideas. I did think of tea bags … And of course you could make an orange box and tie it with a black ribbon and put some candy corn inside 🙂
Please leave me a comment below with your ideas!

Today’s project is a fun fall banner created with a brand new stamp set called Gather Together! This stamp set, and coordinating dies, will be available in the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog starting next week: September 4! This bundle has EVERYTHING you want in a fall bundle: leaves, pumpkins, a bouquet of wheat, and fabulous sentiments! There’s even coordinating designer series paper!
Each “tag” hanging on the banner was made using a 2″ x 4-1/2″ strip of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. The top of the strip was punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and the bottom of the strip was punched with the Banner Triple Punch. The new Cajun Craze Linen Thread was threaded through the top of each tag and then tied onto a long piece of Mint Macaron Nature’s Twine.
Each tag was decorated differently, using various die cuts and paper that show off the beauty of this bundle! There’s even a stamp with splatter dots that I’ve used all over 🙂
A bit of the new Golden Glitz Delicata Ink was added arbitrarily with a paint brush. You are going to LOVE this ink! I’ve just started playing with it and find I’m using it everywhere! Woo-hoo!

Today’s project is a darling 4th of July 3D Heart. It’s a fun decor item for this time of year; and, it’s easy to make! I was inspired by a bigger wood and felt piece made by Michelle at TealandOrange. She has an Etsy store where she sells her fabulous products. You can also find her on Instagram @tealandorangehandmade. When I saw her 4th of July heart I fell in love with it and had to make one with paper!!
The entire project uses the Woven Threads designer series paper. Instead of the traditional red, white and blue 4th of July colors, I’ve used Terracotta Tile, Whisper White, and Pretty Peacock. These are the colors in the dsp and I was so surprised at how much they appear like red, white and blue! The heart was cut with the Be Mine Stitched Dies. The flowers are all punched with the new Medium Daisy Punch. For the tiny flowers I simply cut down the petals all around. The little heart centers were cut using a multi-heart die from that same die set.
The ribbons and papers hanging from the heart are all 1/2″ x 4-1/2″ strips. The ribbon is Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon, and the papers are various pieces of the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.
Now you know I had to try this cutie on my wreath! I love to redecorate my wreath for various seasons 🙂 But I’ve only made one heart so far, so the wreath looks a bit bare. When I have time I hope to make more hearts so the wreath is balanced!

Welcome to the Pals’ June Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects using “Anything with Wings” You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
My “winged” project is a sweet little box and a tag or box topper, depending on your preference! The box was created with the new Perfect Parcel Dies – and I almost missed these in the catalog! Oh my gosh I love this little box!
The box was made using two 6″ x 8″ pieces of Terracotta Tile card stock and one of the dies. There is one die which creates the box and you run both pieces of cardstock through the Big Shot separately, so that the score lines show through very clearly.
The box topper is cut to the size of the box, 4″ x 2.” It slides right on top of the box to give it a pretty top. The box and the topper are created with Terracotta Tile card stock and covered with the new Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. This designer series paper includes all of the new 2019-2020 In Colors.
If you prefer to make a tag, use a 4-1/2″ x 2″ piece of Terracotta Tile card stock punched at the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.
The new Scalloped Lace Trim was added around all sides of the box and affixed with tiny dots of multipurpose glue. This is new lace trim and I might just use it on everything!! 🙂 The box itself is tied up with a pretty bow of Call Me Clover 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon.
Both the tag and the box topper are decorated with some Call Me Clover Leaf Ribbon. The Well Written Dies have this tiny bird die – he’s so darling! I cut him out from Seaside Spray cardstock. I also used the dies to cut the “thanks” sentiment out of Terracotta Tile card stock. A few sequins from the Woven Threads Sequin Assortment added a bit of bling!
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, July 10, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Mixing It Up” projects. Don’t miss the fun!
Magnolias are all over the new Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, and the Magnolia Memory Dies actually create 3D magnolias! I’ve been having fun making lots of paper magnolias and adding them to a wreath that I have in my craft room. Would you like to know how to create these gorgeous flowers? Watch the Stampin’ Up! video below to find out how.
Below is a picture of the completed wreath. This is an inexpensive wreath I picked up at a big craft store. Every so often I change out the decor on the wreath. You may notice that I attach the flowers to the wreath with mini clothespins. That’s because I want to be able to take them off later and replace them with something else! I do try to hide the clothespins 🙂
The Good Morning Magnolia Bundle is going to be very popular. The new catalog goes live on June 4th, so as you see sneak peeks and previews, it would be a good idea to keep a list of what you want to order.
Here’s a Wish List for you to download and keep handy for June 4th. I’ll be showing you more sneak peeks over the next few weeks, so get ready!
Banners are easy and fun to make. I like to make smaller banners, not big ones, just sweet little banners to hang in my craft room 🙂 And today’s banner highlights some pretty new designer series papers that I’m so excited to show you!
Each paper on the banner was cut with one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies, that’s what makes this so easy!. At the bottom of each rectangle, a piece of lace was adhered to the back so it peeks out on the front giving it a bit of a shabby chic look 🙂 The rectangle above, the first rectangle on the left of the banner, was cut from the new Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper. Aren’t the mosaic roses beautiful? The paper also has some pretty butterflies. I cut one out and used a glue dot to adhere to the rectangle. A bow was tied with some brand new Petal Pink ribbon. All of these items will be available in the new annual catalog on June 4.
The next three rectangles were cut from the new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. The birds on these papers are just adorable! The rectangle below shows the back of one of the bird pieces. It’s Petal Pink with little white dots. The daisy was punched out from both Petal Pink card stock and Whisper White card stock using the Daisy Punch.
A hole was punched in the top center of each rectangle and some Whisper White Baker’s Twine was slipped through the hole and used to tie the rectangles onto the banner’s ribbon. The banner is held together with a piece of Calypso Coral 3/8″ Satin Ribbon which has been intwined with some fun Leaf Ribbon. It really carries on the theme of birds and flowers and leaves!
The rectangle below is made from more of the Bird Ballad paper. I like this piece with all the bird cages. This is topped with a bird punched from the same paper using the Starburst Punch.
It’s fun to get a closer look at some of these new items, isn’t it? I’ll be sending FREE new catalogs to all my customers who have ordered from me in the past six months. If you have never ordered from me, please place an order today to get on my customer list 🙂
