Upcycle Paper Pumpkin Boxes Do you have a stack of empty Paper Pumpkin boxes cluttering your craft room? Today, I’m going to show you how to upcycle your Paper Pumpkin boxes! It’s fun and so easy! Once again, I’m showcasing the beautiful Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper that will be available to order in the upcoming 2017-18 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. This piece of paper coordinates with the fabulous new Berry Burst In-Color for 2017-19. It’s gorgeous! To upcycle your Paper Pumpkin boxes, just trace the box onto the opposite side of the paper. I use clear Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the box. Come back tomorrow to see the fun cards that I created to put inside the box. I used fun new items that you are going to love!!!!
Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper Projects Before I move on to the next collection of projects that I created for the Savannah OnStage display boards, I wanted to do a quick recap of the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper projects that I created with the Soft Sky coordinating card stock and embellishments. Soft Sky is a color that I often overlook when I’m creating projects; however, the Foil Frenzy Designer Series Paper and the Island Indigo Ombre Ribbon make the Soft Sky card stock so regal and beautiful that I can’t ignore it any longer! I tried to pick a favorite, but I can’t! I used the World’s Greatest Nephew card for my nephew’s Easter card and it was a hit! The Island Indigo Ombre Ribbon is beyond gorgeous! The Mini Gift Bows are really versatile and will be showing up in a lot of my projects over the next year. Wait until you see the fun colors! The sayings in the World’s Best Trophy Stamp Set will expand your card-making potential because of all of the words/combinations you’ll be able to make. The sturdiness of the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper is the perfect strength for gift boxes. For the rest of the week, I’ll be showcasing projects I created for the Savannah OnStage Display Boards that center around the fabulous new Lemon Lime Twist In-Color. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!
Ombre Ribbon from Stampin’ Up! You guys! The new Ombre Ribbon from Stampin’ Up! is absolutely gorgeous! You are going to want to buy it in all the available colors! Today’s card features the Island Indigo Ombre Ribbon from the new upcoming 2017-18 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The Ombre Ribbon will also be available in Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist – another new 2017-19 In-Color!!! Take a look at the dramatic effect that the ribbon adds: Notice the silver ribbon? It’s a Mini Gift Bow that I unraveled and added to the card for extra bling. I love all of the new ribbons and embellishments that will be available in June!! The sentiment I used for this card are sayings from the new World’s Best Trophy Stamp Set. I used the unique Bunch of Banners Framelits to die-cut the words. I need to make two of these cards. I have two daughters, and they are both the best daughters in all the land! FYI…I still have plenty of projects to show you from the samples I created for the display board for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event in Savannah. I’m taking a break on Monday to post my last Stamp Review Crew post for this season. You won’t want to miss that post! Be sure to come back on Monday for the SRC post. I’ll resume my display board posts on Tuesday, April 18th, which also happens to be our 30th wedding anniversary!! Woo Hoo!!
