Quick Mailing Cards with Peaceful Poppies

Hello Kre8tors, welcome to my blog! Today’s project is a super quick one! I had my gallbladder removed last Tuesday, so I’ve been away from my craft room the last week. I had this video filmed and just needed to get it ready to go, so instead of not giving you a Wednesday video this week, I thought you might enjoy this one!

I wanted to put together some thank you cards for some of my customers and I wanted them to be easy to mail. I went live in my exclusive Facebook group for my customers and team members to get their input in putting this card together. I made 12 cards in under an hour.

Want to join me next time? All you need to do is place an order with me, and I will e-mail you an invitation to join my Facebook group! I’d love to see you there!

Check out my video tutorial below and craft with me!

Jumping Boxes Tutorial

Hello Kre8tors, welcome to my blog! Today I’m sharing a SUPER FUN interactive project with you. Jumping Boxes! These are SO neat! I was a little intimidated at first, I didn’t know how they worked or how difficult they would be, but the truth is if you can use scissors and have a rubber band,
you CAN make these! Scroll down for a video tutorial, FREE PDF tutorial, and template!

My husband made a pair of beaded stitch markers for my mom for Mother’s Day and asked me to make a little package to put them in. Well, I didn’t want a plain ol’ boring box. I wanted something FUN! And FUN is exactly what I made! These jumping boxes are so neat, they just jump right out at you when you open the matchbox style box.

The boxes fold completely flat and once they are released, the spring open with the rubber band mechanism. Pretty neat, huh?! Not to mention, the Peaceful Poppies suite makes this box look good!

I used the Peaceful Poppies DSP, Elements and Sequins to decorate the outside of the box. The sentiment is from the stamp set A Wish For Everything. I really love how easy and quick the decorations came together. These products are perfect for fast creations! They are all retiring, so hopefully it’s not too late to grab yours if they are still in stock by the time this blog post goes up!

Along with my husband’s gift box to house his present, I wanted my gift to my mom to match, so I used some of our DSP and wrapped up my gift. I used the beautiful Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon to finish it off. Along with this matching card, which you can see here, and her gifts were done!

Check out my video tutorial below, download the FREE PDF Tutorial, and the coordinating Template and make your own jumping boxes! I would love to see your creation, so be sure to tag me on social media @mkre8tions

Kre8tors Blog Hop Sympathy Cards

Hello Kre8tors! Welcome back to my blog. Today is a special edition because it’s once again time for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Where a group of Stampin’ Up!®️Independent Demonstrators from around the globe get together to inspire you with beautiful projects! This month’s theme is Sympathy. I have experienced quite a few losses in the month of September, so I thought I would honor those people in my own way, by using my creativity to inspire and share with others.

For my Sympathy card, I decided to use Flourishing Phrases, a classic in the Annual Catalog. It is such a versatile set and so beautiful for a card like this. I wanted to use Gray Granite and Mint Macaron, and think this combination is beautiful with this stamp set.

I love using our Whisper White ribbons and baker’s twine because I can dye it any color I need with our ink! I used that technique on this card to match my ribbon with the Mint Macaron. I also used some of the gorgeous basic adhesive backed sequins to add a little bling. Check out my video tutorial below, and don’t forget to hop along to the other demonstrator’s blogs and see their beautiful, heartfelt projects.

Measurements:

Whisper White Cardbase: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″, Scored @ 4-1/4″
Whisper White Card Mat: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Scrap of cardstock for circle template

Blissful Blooms Alternate Paper Pumpkin – August 2018

Welcome back Kre8tors! I hope you had a lovely week! I’m ready for the long weekend here in the U.S. (Labor Day on Monday). And to celebrate the long weekend, I will be CRAFTING almost the whole time! I couldn’t be more excited! One thing I might do is dive into all of my past Paper Pumpkin kits and start assembling LOADS of cards for the upcoming Holidays and other celebrations.

I decided to dive into my August 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Blissful Blooms, yesterday in a live video for my VIP Group on Facebook. If you’re on Facebook, be sure to like Business Page here and if you become my customer or join my team, you’ll have exclusive access to my VIP Group where I go live, show sneak peeks, and just have fun! (You’ll get a taste of that in the video below!)

I really enjoyed this Paper Pumpkin kit, with the beautiful floral pre-printed cards and the Flirty Flamingo and Silver Baker’s Twine. Plus, the envelopes are AMAZING! I need the refill kit JUST for those beautiful envelopes! I put together two cards as suggested in the kit directions, and THEN I created two alternate cards using a few additional supplies. See all the details in my video!

If you love to package up treats for those special people in your life, the September Paper Pumpkin kit will not disappoint! This limited edition box will inspire you to get spooky-creative with your Halloween treats this year! You’re treats will be the best on the block!
