Decorated Hand Sanitizer Gift Box – Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I love little gifts, both giving and receiving them is a thrill! – just a little something wrapped up prettily, given unexpectedly or placed on a holiday or celebration table – just lovely.

When Stampin’ UP! 2020 Aug/December Mini Catalog came out earlier this year it had the Little Treat Dies, perfect for creating and wrapping a little gift. I experimented and found I could get a mini hand sanitizer in one or a couple of those famous chocolate squares! I am sure there are lots of other goodies out there that would fit in as well.

Pretty Blue Snowflake Christmas Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

We have had some unseasonally warm weather here in North Texas, just last week we were out walking in shirtsleeves musing that it would never have been possible to walk without coats in November when we lived in our native UK! Well the weather has started to cool now and by all accounts we are due a cold front in the coming days, so it is time to think of some seasonal cards.

I am using the Snowflake Wishes Stamp Set for today’s Christmas Card along with some blues and greens and a twist of Snowflake Splendor Ribbon which has a very pretty iridescent effect.

So we did a card for the guys on Saturday – today we turn to a pretty floral one for the lassies in our lives! This is a great card to make as all the hard work is done with the pretty ‘Flower for all Seasons Designer Series Paper.

While I have used a birthday greeting, change it out to create a thank you, thinking of you or best wishes card – it will work for any of these!

Thanksgiving Z-Fold Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and my card today would be perfect to send to friends and family members to celebrate this year. We might not be able to get together in person as we have in the past so a beautiful card will show them they are in our thoughts.

I have used the Celebration Tidings Stamp Set along with my very favorite Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen, to color the pumpkins, leaves and berries.

Fall Themed Thank You Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Well the leaves are falling from the trees thick and fast now, yesterday morning my husband spent half an hour raking the leaves in the back garden – 2 hours later it looked as though he had never even started as there was a thick carpet of them again!

Today’s card, made using the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set with the coordinating Autumn Punch Pack (available as a bundle for 10% discount!!) It kind of reminds me of the autumn leaves falling.

Guy Card using Decorative Paper Layers

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card uses up some scraps of the World of Good Designer Series Paper (DSP) – I had been using this paper pack for another project and could not bear to waste scraps of this beautiful foiled paper.

I love to make these ‘panel’ cards – I simply take the DSP scraps and cut the background layers about an 1/8 larger (or sometimes a 1/4 larger if I want a wider boarder) I hear groans when I suggest cutting 1/8’s but with the Stampin’ UP! Paper Trimmer it is so easy to do because the marks are so clear for cutting.
