ALTOIDS Tins For All Occasions

ALTOID Tins for all Occasions

Hello Friends,

It all began with a pile of ALTOIDS tins and an October Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Sale.  Joe loves peppermint ALTOIDS.  He keeps a ready stash in his car at all times, so I found myself with bunches of these cute tins.  It's so, so easy to decorate and gift these tins for countless occasions with designer paper, plus Stampin' Up! is offering 15% a select group of designer papers for October.  Are you ready to see these thrifty recycled gifts?

Trimming the Town Gift Tins

With my Trimming the Town Designer paper I was able to make a Welcome Tin.  I'm imagining using this tin to welcome someone to the neighborhood, to my team, to my family, or to my church.  With Christmas just around the corner, I naturally needed to make a Christmas Tin of gift-giving.  Did you know that Gift Card quite easily fit in ALTOID tins?  Speaking of the inside, don't neglect to decorate the insides of your tins too!  My last tin in this set was repurposed to make a Congratulations gift tin.  I am imagining it as a Congratulations on your new home or graduation or any other accomplishment that deserves celebrating.

Whale Done Gift Tins

It was quite simple to make Gift Tins for Baby, Birthday, and "Whale Done" Occasions with the Whale of a Time Designer Paper and the Whale Done stamp set.

Recycled Altoid Tins

For my third trio of Gift Tins, I simply repurposed my tins with Forever Greenery Designer Paper, a quick tag, and some bows.  The tin in the upper left would make a beautiful Congrats on your Retirement Gift.  Even the bow was fashioned from designer paper!  For the Wedding Tin, I simply covered my tin with Forever Greenery Paper and dressed it with ribbon.  For the tag, I stamped my good wishes then curled my paper with my bone folder.  My Birthday Tin was wrapped with a belly band made of designer paper. 

Recycling Altoid Tins

What occasions do you have coming up?  Trim recycling your old tins with designer paper.  Stampin' Up! has made it even easier with their 15% Off Select Designer  October Paper Sale.  The Playful Pets Designer paper is calling me.  Can you imagine those cute pets on your handmade gift tins?  See Papers Offered

Sneak Peek Coming Home Bundle Stampin' Up!

Coming Home Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

I love the new August-December 2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog and I love Sneak Peeks!  Meet the Coming Home Bundle from the Trimming the Town Suite by Stampin' Up!.  While the Coming Home Bundle was definitely designed with winter and holidays in mind, it's also versatile enough to be used for many other occasions.  So for my Sneak Peeks of the Coming Home Bundle, I designed a Welcome Card, a Miss You Card, and a Welcome Gift of Homemade Raspberry Peach Jam.

Coming Home Stampin' Up!

Far Apart But Close At Heart Card

First, I die cut my red polka dot road using the Home Together Dies (item #153515) and Trimming the Town Designer Paper (item #153491).  At this point, it was only natural to add a little red card.  To make the card, I inked up my card stamp from the Coming Home Stamp set (item #153500) and then die-cut my card using the Home Together Dies.  The Mile Apart sentiment is a stamp from the Well Said stamp set (item #148796).  Note:  Thick Whisper White Card Stock (#140272) makes the best White Card Bases.

Coming Home Stampin' Up!

Welcome Home Card

This time the Trimming the Town Designer Paper covers the front of my card.  The little houses are so stinkin' cute.  Again I used the Coming Home Stamp set and Home Together Dies to fashion my card focal point.  I chose Poppy Parade, Old Olive, and Pool Party Card Stocks because they are colors included in the Designer Paper.  It so, so easy to choose project colors when they are listed in the Stampin' Up! Catalog and on the Designer Paper Pack.  Once again I snagged a stamp from the Well Said stamp set to stamp my sentiment.  The only additional tool that I used for this card was the Stitched Shapes Dies (item # 152323).  Inks used for today's cards and tags were Misty Moonlight and Early Espresso.

Bundle and Save 10%


The Coming Home Bundle (item # 155144) and the Trimming the Town Designer Paper will be available to order with the launch of the August-December 2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog on August 4, 2020.

So Sentimental Thank You

So Sentimental Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Paper Crafts involve s0 much more than just handmade cards and scrapbooking.  Paper Crafting also means gift packaging, home decor, party favors and more. Today's quick project is a  cute Mini Pizza Box made with the popular So Sentimental Bundle from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.  What an adorable way to say, " I appreciate you and I can't thank you enough".

About this Project

The focal point of today's Mini Pizza Box was made with a stamp from the So Sentimental Stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment with Whisper White Craft ink onto Basic Black Card Stock and heat embossed with Whisper White Embossing Powder.  Then, I cut the whole thing out with the coordinating Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Oh, how I love these dies!   I have been using these dies on so many projects lately including....

Happy Birthday to You Stampin' Up!

on this card which will be featured on my blog later this week.  The So Sentimental Stamp set and Stitched So Sweetly dies can be purchased separately or they can be bundled together to save 10%.

Free Small Blossom Punch

Besides the So Sentimental Bundle,  I also attached pretty little Purple Posies punched with my Small Bloom Punch which I received for free as a Sale-a-Bration gift.  Every year Stampin' Up! gives away loads of products from January through March.  With each and every qualifying purchase you may select a free gift from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  See the 2020 Sale-a-bration Catalog here.

See a list of all the supplies used to make today's Gift Box at the bottom of this post.
