When it's this hot outside 100-108, and still no luck with finding a new job yet, it's great to be inside stamping.
The first few projects I made using samples I found in the new issue of The Success Magazine from Stampin Up!. And can I say O.M.G. what great projects in this months issue.
The first project idea is from Julia Bettencourts sample using the Sizzix XL Box #2 die #114518 and the Match Box die #114890. I used Lasting Impressions cardstock, which I love. The center section holds six small bottles of bubbles, with thank you cards in each of the outside sections. The second project is the adorable FROG box using the Sizzix XL Scallop bag #114529 and various Stampin Up!punches. He's so cute! The third is the Sweetest Ever card. Very easy to make using Stampin Up! punches.
The next card is a project I saw online @ Just Rite Stamps several months ago using individually packaged Life Saver candies. In my card I have used the crushed curry cardstock #115319 and ribbon #115614 from Stamping Up along with Anna Griffith designer paper, and Die Cut with a View embossed cardstock. I have left the life saver in the wrapper, but for card giving I would take in out of the wrapper before adhering.
Next you will see my version of the copyright purse template from PaperTrey Ink website. They have such cute projects, various templates for purchase. I had to have this one. It has oodles of room inside. Great for a piece of delicious cake, nuts, or chocolates you're enjoying at a wedding, or baby shower.
The adorable Dracula and Frankenstein candy holders are projects from Angie Kennedy Juda-StampinUp aka Chicknscratch.com website.
Lastly you will find my Lady Bug Matchbox. I made this lady bug by using the Marvy 3" scallop punch and the Sizzix XL Match Box die. Included in the project are Rhinestone Brads #109110, and I used the Texturz plates - Backgrounds-1 #114512, basic black pad, pencil, crystal effects #101055, sticky strip #104294, punches, and misc black coated jewelry wire. It will hold Hershey nuggets or the premium Hershey chocolate squares.
Hope you enjoy the projects!
