Stamper’s Showcase 2019 Holiday Catalog Favorites

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop today! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

The project I decided to create is an adorable paper box from the gorgeous Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. These boxes are super fun and quick to put together! In my YouTube tutorial, I show you how to calculate your measurements so that you can make a variety of sizes!

I like to have options when creating my boxes and think they look so cute on the plates at a beautifully set table for the holidays. You can put in a couple of chocolates, maybe some lottery tickets, or just cute notes to your family and friends. What would you put inside?

The length and width of all the boxes I made here are 3″ x 3″ and vary in height, with the tallest measuring 2-1/2″. You can make them so you can’t see the bottom part of the box, or make a shorter lid and a taller base so you can see the contrast. There are just so many options!

I really hope you enjoyed this project, and would love to see your boxes after you give them a try! Tag me on Instagram (@MKre8tions) so that I can share your beautiful projects!

Ombre Heat Emboss Technique

Yes, today is Wednesday. I know, I normally air Melissa’s Kre8tions Live! on my YouTube channel. No, I am not going live today. I’m in the process of moving, so I’m bringing you a regular, good ol’ fashioned tutorial!

This is a technique I learned from watching our CEO Sara Douglass at OnStage in Brisbane, AU! No, I wasn’t actually there. But as a Demonstrator, I was able to watch the replays online! Woohoo! If you want these perks too, ask me how to get in on the fun!

This is such a fun technique, I’ve decided to call it the Ombre technique, though I don’t know if it has a real name. . . It makes such a gorgeous sentiment though!

2 in 1 Pop Out Card – Promo

Hey everyone! Yesterday I was working ALL day on this special project. I call it my 2 in 1 Pop Out Card, because there are 2 ways you can display this lovely handmade creation. I’ve uploaded a Promo video to my YouTube channel that will explain the details on how you can get your hands on this awesome PDF tutorial with coordinating video walk through!

IMG_1121

The VIP room on Facebook for my customers, as well as my downlines, already got a sneak peek at this great card and they get the PDF and video tutorial for FREE for being such great people and supporting me at what I love to do. If you’d like to get in on that action and be the first to see new tutorials, participate in weekly design challenges with prizes, and other great content, place an order with me at my Stampin’ Up! shop.

The PDF file includes a Supply List, Cutting Guide, and full color step by step instructions, plus a gallery of photos of this card, and the YouTube link to view the coordinating video tutorial. All of this in 10 pages!

Below you can see the Promo video I made for this amazing card.

There are three ways you can join in on this great deal!

  1. If you’re one of my existing customers that has spent at least $50 in my online Stampin’ Up! shop, you are already going to receive the PDF file with coordinating YouTube video! Congratulations for being so awesome!
  2. If you spend $50 in my Stampin’ Up! shop before shipping and tax, I will send you a copy of the PDF file! At the bottom of the file is the link to the coordinating YouTube tutorial.
  3. A digital download is available from my Etsy shop for $10. The downloadable file also includes a link to the coordinating YouTube tutorial for this great card.

Thank you all so much for joining me! I hope you enjoy making this card as much as I enjoyed teaching you how!
