Gusseted Cello Bag Insert & New Video!

Today's project features a great way to dress up our Stampin' Up! Cello Bags with any designer paper. I even show you how in my brand new YouTube video and this is perfect with Christmas just around the corner! Take a peek at both projects below, using the exact same designer paper sheet from the That's Christmas Designer Paper:




All I did was turn one sheet over to the opposite side. And isn't my coordinating tag adorable? Here's a side-view so you can see what the bag looks like with the designer paper inside:




I also used a Blender Pen to add color by using the inked Cherry Cobbler lines as my color palette:

Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!



Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly, Fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la.....Guess what our theme is today for our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary? If you guessed Christmas Song Inspired then you are correct! I've used the Merry Mice stamp set quite a few times in the past few months and every time I do, I come up with something different. What a cute stamp set!




This time I opted to color only selected areas of the image and I only used two colors to coordinate with the designer paper and cardstock colors. There is enough color there to make this card beautiful.




I added a solo bow at the bottom of my banners and notice the dry embossing? The embossing folder I used is the Festive EF. I love the little line of dots and the embossing is so crisp! I also stamped the sentiment 3 times without re-inking my stamp so that it showed up lighter each time I stamped.



Here is the card recipe:
  • Card Base: Dapper Denim 11" x 4-1/4". Score in the center at 5-1/2" and fold.
  • Layer #2: Marina Mist Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". Emboss using the Festive Embossing Folder and glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Create a banner with the designer paper measuring 1-1/2" x 4-3/4". Snip one end into a "V" and glue to card front about 1/2" from the left.
  • Layer #4: Create a banner with the designer paper measuring 1" x 4-1/2". Snip one end into a "V" and glue to card front by overlapping about 1/2" on the first banner.
  • Layer #5: Cut a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock 2-3/4" x 3-1/2". Trim all 4 corners with the Project Life Corner Punch. Stamp the mice image at the top using Dapper Denim Ink. Add a little bit of color using the Blender Pen, Dapper Denim Ink and Mint Macaron In. Stamp the sentiment using Dapper Denim Ink 3 times without re-inking the stamp. Glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Bow: Cut one bow using Dapper Denim Cardstock and glue below the stamped layer.
Card Supplies:
  • Stamps: Merry Mice
  • Inks: Dapper Denim, Mint Macaron
  • Cardstock: Dapper Denim, Very Vanilla, Marina Mist
  • Tools: Project Life Corner Punch, Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies, Festive Embossing Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals, Blender Pen
  • DSP: This Christmas

Craft Fair Desktop Easel Calendars!



This is a close-up of one of the Desktop Easel Calendars of many that I created for the craft fair last week. They make such great gifts for Christmas and I always sell out each time I make them. I had a stash of retired cardstock and retired designer paper that I wanted to get rid of so I used them up with this project. The photo below shows you how the easel calendar stands:



The neat thing about this calendar is that it uses half a sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock so you can create two of them with one sheet of cardstock. Here's how:
  • Calendar Base: Cardstock cut at 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score at 1/2", 1-1/2", 2-1/2" and 5-1/2". Fold on all score lines and glue the small tab under the front as shown in the photo.
  • Layer #2: Add a layer of cardstock to the front measuring 2-1/2" x 5". I used white to show off the colors of the designer paper.
  • Layer #3: Add a strip of designer paper measuring 1-1/2" x 5" and glue centered. 
  • Press the self-adhesive calendar in place to the left and decorate the right side as you like!
I purchase all of my calendars from Vippies and it's the largest size available. Thanks for visiting me today!

Craft Fair Magic Reindeer Food & Santa Keys!



My granddaughter Kaitlynn is 8 this year and yes, she still believes in Santa. So each year, whether I participate in craft fairs or not, I have to come up with a new design for my Magic Reindeer Food packets. She loves to go outdoors on Christmas Eve and spread the food for the reindeer, anticipating the arrival of Santa's sleigh.




Inside the bag you will find some oats and sugar sprinkles. I remember when this idea debuted years and years ago, people were using glitter. If this is sprinkled on the ground and ingested by real critters, glitter is not a good idea so please use color sugars or sprinkles if you are going to create some of these for your children or grandchildren.





I used the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set to create my reindeer and cut him up with the Cookie Cutter Punch. So perfect to add to the topper of my cello bag.




And finally, the cute little poem that goes on the topper. I typed up sheets of these on Whisper White Cardstock. It's fun to read these to your children right before you open the bag to sprinkle the contents. Now what about those kiddo's that don't have a chimney for Santa? This is another great idea to make sure Santa can visit and come in the home to leave presents:



I started making these when my daughter & granddaughter lived in an apartment and Kaitlynn uses her key each year. She leaves it for Santa on the outside of the door so he can use the key to come in.


 

I purchased the keys on Amazon at a great price. Just search for Skeleton Keys and you'll find them. Thanks for stopping by to visit today!
