Valentine Packaging

Today I am giving you OODLES of ideas for Valentine packaging!!  Stampin' Up has you covered and order NOW to get your items in time to be ready for Happy Hearts Day!  The Pizza and Acetate Boxes are a carry over from the Holiday catalogs so I have given you those Order numbers below.  And YOU can MAKE these at my FEB. 3rd Class or Stamp a Stack of cards.  RSVP at my website to attend.


These 2 X 2 X 2 clear boxes are perfect for Kisses and Foil wrapped candy as the candy will shine thru the Box.  I cut a strip of Petal Passion Designer paper 2 inches X 8 1/2 inches.  I scored at 2,4,6 and 8 inches.  Then used Tear N Tape to adhere at the back corner of the box.


I cut Real Red Hearts and Iridescent Glimmer Hearts with the Sweet and Sassy Heart Framelits and Lots of Love Box Framelits.  3/8 Black Glimmer ribbon really adds more Sparkle!

 I used the same Sweet & Sassy Framelits to cut out a Heart in the top of this Pizza Box.  I added a 3 X 3 Square of Real Red Card stock to the inside of the lid.  You could add a Clear panel to SEE what is in the Box!  I added another Glimmer paper Heart and The Banner from this Bundle.


The Tiny Hearts from Heart Happiness were stamped in each corner.  And don't waste that White Heart you cut out......check out the next project!



To decorate this Acetate box I used the Sweetheart embossing folder on a 5 1/4 X 4 1/4 piece of Real Red Card stock.  This piece will float inside the Box.  Anything you stuff the Box with will show thru the other side and hold this piece in place.

I used Tombow adhesive to glue down the White Heart and Real Red Heart in position to fit in the inner embossed Heart.  I then popped up the small Conversation Hearts on the Outside of the Box.  I have seen some adorable Valentine socks that would really show well in this Box.  Or Candy is always a great gift for your Sweethearts!

Sure DO Love You and Lots to Love Bundle   145965  Wood $55.75,   145966 Clear $48.50

Orange Crush

This Weather has sure been Frosty and as a little girl I remember a Frosty drink at our Ready Mix.  Orange Crush!!  Oh that POP as we called it was so COLD and FROSTY.




The Ready Mix in New Windsor Illinois sold Concrete and was also the Grain Elevator with a scale out front to weigh the trucks of Corn and Soy Beans.  Farmers were always gathered inside and I was a bit timid to enter, but my Brother Kevin was usually with me.

They had one of those OLD Pop machines that has the slots holding the Pop Bottles on their sides.  You put in your NICKLE and you could then open the door and grab a bottle.  Kevin had to grab mine as I was not strong enough then to pull that bottle out of the machine.  WOW what awesome memories and those bottles always had ice in the tops, they were COLD!!  Loved that POP and we did not get Pop very often!



I stamped Pumpkin ink on Whisper White card stock for the Bottle bases.  I cut them out with the Framelits and also cut out Vellum Bottles to go on top for that FROSTY look!  I stamped Stars in Pumpkin Pie and cut out the Bottle decorations.  The Bottle caps were cut with Silver Foil.....love how these turned out!  And the Bubbles stamped on the Peak a Boo Peach card base really POP!!  Some Basic Black card stock and a scrap of Designer paper make a nice background for these Frosty Bottles.  This Bundle is so versatile, see the Beer Birthday Greeting....Beer Bottles coming soon!

Beautiful Peacock

This Peacock is all Blinged out!!  Glimmer paper, Shimmering White card stock and some Rhinestones!!  Beautiful Photopolymer stamps that layer together for a Beautiful Image!!


I LOVE this color combo.  Bermuda Bay card base, Iridescent Glimmer paper, Island Indigo mat and Shimmering White card stock.  I stamped the Bird Body in Island Indigo, Feathers in Bermuda Bay and Tail Feathers in Pool Party.


This is a Trick to remember when using Glimmer paper as a mat.......grab a punch and PUNCH out some Balloons, Butterflies, Hearts anything you can think of!!  Because once you add the mat to the back NO ONE will ever know!!  I just wish I had positioned my punch better as I could have gotten 4 Balloons instead of 3!  
And LOOK at this ribbon trick with the Sale-a-bration ribbon pack.  Cut a piece about 2 inches long and grab the Silver piece(see it all zig zag looking) and pull!  Brandi Barnard of SU showed us this at ONstage in November.  LOVE IT!



I added dimensionals to all 4 corners and popped up the entire mat.  The Sentiment is from the same Stamp set.

2 for Tuesday Pandas

These Little Pandas are too cute and today you get 2 cards!  Birthday cards!!


I love how you can fit 3 pandas across your card and this little guy is doing a cartwheel!  I colored the Party Hats to match the dots in the Picture Perfect Party paper stack.  This paper is so vibrant, I am on my second stack!  The Lemon Lime Twist card base and mat really make these Pandas stand out.


Happy Birthday was stamped on a Banner and popped up on the card.


On this card I used the "Picture" side of the paper.  Party Horns make a great background on this Berry Burst card base.  I cut Layering Circles in Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist.  Stamped the Panda in Momento Black ink.



The Balloons were punched from our new Glimmer Paper Stack, You will see a trick tomorrow on these Balloons!  I popped these up and tucked in a Banner under the top Balloon.

Lots of Love Valentine Box


Wow it has taken me a few days to get this post ready.  Making videos is not for the Faint of Heart.....Take 5 and it is far from perfect....but we are going to ROLL with it!!  And here are some samples and the list of ingredients!  Yesterday's Blog post also shows more Box Samples.


My original BOX which I have now created 5 more times!! Oh well I will be ready to hand out some treats for Valentine's Day!  2 Melon Mambo Pieces create the Box.  A 3 X 4 piece of Painted with Love Designer paper is adhered to the Front.


Rich Razzleberry small hearts decorate the back of the box.  Check out this Video for step by step directions!

Lots of Love Box Video



And here is what fits inside!   A Russell Stovers Heart, or I think 2-3 Ghirardelli Chocolates would also fit nicely.  The Conversation Hearts are a bit plump so your box top will not close tightly, but you may be able to find some slimmer packages!


And here is a picture of the Box created in the video using a different pattern of the Designer paper and a Gold Foil Heart:
