Punch Art Santa Curvy Keepsake Box Tutorial



This Punch Art Santa is quick, easy and fits Stampin' Up!'s Curvy Keepsake Box perfectly.  It can be a Christmas ornament, Secret Santa gift or a treat holder for that special someone.


In this video tutorial with Sharing Creativity and Company, you'll learn how to make the Santa face which will fit on other items too such as a star.  I'll also give you a tip on how to cut the Curvy Keepsake box from 8 1/2 x 11" paper.  Did you know that you can get 1 1/2 boxes from each sheet of paper?

We made this little Santa in my stocking stuffer class earlier in December.  It has been the most requested tutorial from that class.

Believe in the Miracle Christmas Card



This Believe in the Miracle card is the first in a series of quick and easy Christmas cards. If you have a lot of Christmas cards to send, this series of quick and easy cards is for you!  I first made this card for a demonstrator swap. It has been repeated many times since then by my demonstrator friends.

You can use a variety of stamps and it use very little designer series paper. Instead of a strip of paper that goes across the card, I used two 2 x 2 squares. The doily and sentiment hide the gap.


Here is the video tutorial with more details.  Enjoy!

Quick and Easy Christmas Star



Looking for a quick and easy Christmas decoration for your home or a gift for that special someone?  This quick and easy Christmas Star could be just what you need for your next crafting project.  I got the frame (including the stand) and paper mache star at my local craft store for just under $10.  Gotta love those Black Friday specials!  While the frame came with the glass and backing, I liked the look of the star against the open frame.

I covered the star with Stampin' Up!'s Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper.  That inspiration came from the December Splitcoaststampers Challenge.

The sentiment is from the hostess stamp set, Six Sayings, in the Holiday catalog.  For the red trim and bow I used Real Red Envelope Paper.  The light-weight paper was perfect for the folded banner.


This is the how the frame looks with the stand.

Botanical Gardens Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek



Botanical Gardens is a lush, tropical theme featured in Stampin' Up!'s upcoming Occasions catalog which starts on January 5, 2016.  As my time with the Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew wraps up, I used the Botanical Gardens theme along with two of the December Challenges.  This mini pizza box is one of my favorite treat boxes that can be decorated to fit any theme and only takes 1/2 a sheet of 8 1/2" x ll" cardstock.  You can fit a gift card along with a few treats in the box.  The sentiment comes from the Going Global stamp set (140748  $19).

I used the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies for both projects.  This is an easy way to cut intricate detailed flowers. 


The last challenge was to make a fun fold card.  I decided to make a quarter fold card using this Splitcoaststampers tutorial. Notice the black details on the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper?  Those are stamps from the Botanical Blooms stamp set that you can use to add details to the flowers.
