Tags for Bath and Body Hand Soaps

Hi Everyone! In a Sixth Sense voice ” I see Stampin’ UP!” (smile) I love using my Stampin’ UP! products to tie win with things to use as gifts. Here I found Bath and Body Works Hand Soap. When I spied the design I knew I could make coordinating tags to use in my craft fairs!.

I try to keep my craft fair items to around the $5 mark. But as most know, B&B Hand Soap runs about $5 each when you get the 6 for $24 plus tax cost. So I packaged in a cello bag and made a simple, yet cute and coordinated tag.

For both tags I used Lots of Labels Framelit Dies and a standard 1/4″ hold punch.

How to make the Lemon Tag: With Daffodil Delight ink, stamp lemon image. With Memento Black ink, stamp sentiment. With Wild Wasabi Ink, stamp leaf. Use Lemon Builder Punch to punch out images. Layer on tag.

How to make the Lavender Tag: With Memento Black ink, stamp sentiment and outline image on white label. Use Old Olive and Perfect Plum ink to stamp background color images. Note! Lots of Lavender stamp set is a FREE Sale-A-Bration selection now through March 31, 2018!

Covered Jr. Legal Pad – Springtime Foil Specialty Designer Paper

Covered Jr. Legal Pad – Springtime Foil Specialty Designer Paper

Hi Everyone! My crafting friends Beth (Click here for Beth’s Blog) and Mary Ann came over last Friday night to help me make items for a craft fair. In exchange for their help, they went home with samples made!

The design for this covered jr. legal pad was one the Beth showed me last fall!  Beth is part of my team, The Designer Paper Dolls!

You can find jr. legal pads in the office supply section of most stores. Here’s my  link to Amazon if you need to find it online.

I personally like the white paper vs. the canary but it’s creators choice!

Designer Paper: 9-1/2″ x 5-1/4″  Score along the long side at 7 “.The Jr. Legal pad is a 5 x 8.

How to Make:

  • Wrap designer paper so front is covered then over the top and along the back The score line will fall slighty below the pads top section where you tear off.
  • Finger press to create creases along the top.
  • With Mulit Purpose Glue – add glue to the front top section and top of the pad.
  • Add glue to the back section (follow the crease) of the designer paper and glue.
  • Add embellishments like ribbon and tags.

Springtime Foils Specialty Paper is so pretty and is a Sale-a-Bration selection – Free with a $50 or more purchase!

The Label me Pretty Bundle makes for a great stamp and punch set to use for projects and gift gifting like these covered notepads!

The paper has Gold, Silver and Rose Gold foil accents in the different papers within the pack. I found that the Copper Foil Sheets was a fairly close match to the Rose Gold.

Glitter Queen Hop – Easy Easter Basket with Video Tutorial

Glitter Queen Hop – Easy Easter Basket with Video Tutorial

Hi Everyone! Welcome to our Sale-A-Bration Hop. My project is a easy Easter Basket! It show cases the Sale-A-Bration Springtine Foils Specialty Designer Paper.

All you need to make this easy basket is the following:

Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Paper: 2″ x 12″  & 1″ x 12″
Copper Foil Sheets: 2-1/4″ x 12″ & 1-1/4″ x 12″
Very Vanilla Thick Card Stock: (2) 2″ x 6 ”
And 1 jumbo muffin/cupcake liner
Tear & Tape

Pretty awesome so little supplies, right!?

Here’s a video tutorial followed by some step by step photos!

Step1 – Optional – Use Stampin’ Blends to color floral images. Layer onto Copper Foil Sheets

Step 2: Add Tear & Tape to the short end of the 2-1/4 x12. Bring ends together to form circle


Step 3: Add Tear & Tape the short ends of the 1″ x 6″ Very Vanillas. Photo shows prescored, but I found scoring wasn’t really necessary.

Criss cross the strips and adhere on the inside of the circle to make a bottom section.
I had pre scored at 1″ but you can bring up ~ 1″ on each side – but not an exact science. Just end up with a flat bottom to your basket. The inside won’t be seen anyway!

Step 4: Add Tear & Tape to the short ends of the handle. Add to inside of basket.



Step 5: Add jumbo muffin/cupcake liner to inside of liner and add grass – I used Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie because the colors matched!


Add an embellishment and sentiment – Here I punched a 2″ circle from the Designer Paper and layered over a Copper Foil Sheet punched out with the Starburst Punch and added a copper embossing powder stamped sentiment.

So you could make several Easter Baskets out of a few sheets of Springtime Foil Specialty Designer paper and scrap Very Vanilla cardstock. AND plenty of this GORGOUS paper for other projects.

Up next is Beth!

Glitter Queen Blog Hop -Lindt Lindor Truffle Holder

Glitter Queen Blog Hop -Lindt Lindor Truffle Holder

Hi Everyone! Another fun hop brought to you by the Glitter Queens’ Group!

This month’s theme is TREAT HOLDERS. And 3D items are the best as they add versatility to your paper crafting supplies.

My treat holder today will hold a Lindt Lindo Truffle. I like to think of Lindors as “over indulgence without going over board”!

This is a grown-ups treat that is perfect for a holiday or thank you. I used A Good Day stamp set as it’s an AWESOME stamp set for treat holders. The set has a variety of images to use all year round!

You can make 8 treat holders out of (1) 12×12 designer paper or card stock. 

I like having projects like this in my treat holder idea file.

  1. It’s a super quick treat holder to make if you need a quick thank you.
  2. Along the same lines, easy to mass produce for a holiday or party favor
  3.  It helps to use up extra sheets of 12×12 Designer Paper stash!

How to make:

To make the outer strip, you need a 2″ x 8″ of Designer Paper. Painted with Love Specialty Designer Paper is a little thicker than most designer paper so it’s nice and sturdy for this product! Score along the 8″ side at 3-1/4″ and 4-3/4″. With Scallop Tag Topper – punch each 2″ end.

For insert: 2-1/2″ x 2″ coordinating cardstock (Me to your Designer Paper.
Along the 2-1/2″ side, score 1/2″ from both sides.
(not shown) with a 1-1/4″ circle punch, punch circle in the center section (1-1/2″ x 2 section in the middle of the scored lines.)
Add Tear & Tape to the 1/2″ score sections and place on the inside of the outer strip. Drop candy in! 🙂

I like to TIE my sentiment tag to the front tag loop and SECURE my treat holder with a clip. Why? So they don’t have to tear open the top to open! And (giggle) admire our handy work or possibly re-gift it! LOL

To make the sentiment tag, use Melon Mambo ink to stamp the sentiment on scrap Whisper White and decorative image on Melon Mambo scrap cardstock. Punch decorative out with the new 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and use the 1/8″ hand held circle punch to make hole for baker’s twine. Punch sentiment with 1″ circle punch. Layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals, add bakers twine (I used retired Calypso Coral but you could sub with Peekaboo Peach!) and tie to treat holder.

Tie a bow around the binder clip,

I hope you enjoyed my project!! Now lets keep hopping! Up next is my good friend Beth!

And the complete hop list!
