Trimming The Tree - Peace & Joy


The Trimming The Tree stamp set is one of the sets that Stampin' Up! have released a new die set for.

There were 6 different die sets released this month that coordinate with existing stamp sets BUT they are only available for this month only! So you only have a couple more days to get them if you are interested.

I used some of the Tree Trimmings dies for this card.


The die set is awesome because not only do you get outline dies for all the images in the stamp set - but you get lots of other dies too! AND you get multiples for the images you will use more of - the star, bow and decorations!


You also get two additional Tree dies that you can use with the stamp set or on their own. They add little cuts all over the foliage of the Tree. You can leave these flat or push these up to add dimension and interest to your projects.

Tea Boutique - Fold Flat Gift Bag


In my previous post I showed you how I created these little Gift/Treat Bags.

During the Video, I briefly showed you this sample set that I had made and thought I would show it in more detail today :o)


The Bag measures 3" wide, 3" tall and 1½" deep. It's a great size for sweet treats or a small gift.

I used papers from the Tea Boutique 6" Designer Series Paper pack for both the front and back of the Bag and for the images. 

I used Orchid Oasis card for the sides and base of the bag.


The Bag folds flat, so it easy to store.


The sentiment comes from the Go To Greetings stamp set.

The mat it sits on has been cut using one of the Stylish Shapes dies - but I shortened it. I showed you how I did that in the Video in my previous post too.


The Twine comes from the 2022 - 2024 In Color Baker's Twine pack - I used the Sweet Sorbet one :o)

Stampin Friends Blog Hop - Say It With Sentiments


Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop for September! 

This month's theme is 'Say It With Sentiments'. 

If you are following along with the Hop, you may have arrived from  Jo's Blog. 

Be sure to read through my post, comment below and then continue on to Jean's Blog. 

If you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of all the participants at the end of each of their Blog Posts.

Here are the projects I made for this month's Hop ...


I used the Trimming The Tree and Brightest Glow stamp set to create these super sweet Gift/Treat Bags and coordinating cards!

All the papers are from the Lights Aglow 6" Designer Series Paper pack.

This sentiment is just perfect for me. I like simple sentiments in a gorgeous font and that's what you get with the Brightest Glow stamp set.


Cherry Cobbler is the main colour used for this first set. I paired it with Gold Foil card for the Gift Bag. 

The sentiments are stamped using Versamark and embossed with Gold Powder.


These Bags measure 3" wide, 3" tall and 1½" deep. They are perfect to hold sweet treats or a small gift - jewellery perhaps :o)


I'm very happy with how the card came out. I wanted the sentiment to really stand out and having it on this angle certainly makes that happen.


I used one of the dies from the Stylish Shapes set to cut out the sentiment, but I made it smaller. I show you how I did this in the Video below.


I chose a different contrast colour for this next set - Evening Evergreen.


This is a lovely little bag to present a small gift in. It's strong and has a beautiful quality about it :o)


The Bag also folds flat so you can store lots easily until they are needed.


I hand cut out the images for the little Tree - but if you have purchased the Tree Trimmings Dies (available for this month only) then you could use those to cut out your images.



Here is the Video for the Gift Bag ...
