Gift Bag Punch Board Project

Gift Bag Punch Board


I created this gift bag at my upline’s, Lisa Pretto, Catalog Kick-Off event today.   The bag was made using the new Gift Bag Punch Board.  So many luscious  new products on this project!  What would you put in this cute bag?  Chocolate? a Gift Card?  The bag measures 3-3/4″X 2-5/8″ X 2″.  The Gift Bag Punch Board allows you to make bags that are wider and taller too.  Please leave a comment with what you would put in this gift bag.

On Tuesday, June 2, 2015, all of the products will be available to order after the new 2015-2016 goes live at approximately 2AM (MT)  or 3 AM (CST).

“Big News” for a Sketch Challenge


Big News smaller size

Stamp Set – Big News
Ink – Island Indigo
Cardstock – Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Adventure Bound DSP Paper Stack
Accessories – Basic Black Baker’s Twine

Do you have a hard time creating a masculine card? I LOVE the Adventure Bound Paper Stack!  It has wonderful prints that are perfect for masculine cards and outdoor enthusiasts.  Thes papers are great for Father’s Day and Graduation cards.

The top sheet in the photo below is almost a card in itself!  Notice the design that is grass? one that is birch bark?  There is a design that looks like a brick wall and one that is woodgrain.  The flip sides are just as wonderful.

Here is what the Stampin’ Up! catalog says about this paper stack.

 “No delicate flowers and soft colors here–these designs are bold and spirited, making them the right choice for Father’s Day, graduation, or masculine projects. Great for card fronts or backgrounds. 48 sheets in each padded stack: 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″. Coordinates with Basic Gray, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Mossy Meadow, Sahara Sand, Whisper White.”

 The Adventure Bound Paper Stack is only $6.95.  At this price, you might want to buy 2!   But they are only available for purchase from the Occasions Catalog until June 2nd, or while supplies last.  So don’t wait too long….

Below, you can see the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge 253 which inspired my card.

One of my customers showed me a photo of a screen card and asked how to make it.  I had never made a screen card before but she inspired me to try my hand at one.  I found out that they are easy to make and a new way to use my Decorative Label Punch.  This card turned out so well,  that it will be featured at my card classes next month.  My customers are going to love it!

Did you know that you can sign up to attend one of my card classes on-line?  Check out the Events tab above and it will take you to my Calendar where you can see my upcoming classes and RSVP if you  are able to attend.
