Pals “Cut It Out” Blog Hop

Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out.”  Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Stampin Up Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies 3 x 3 Holiday Cards Ideas - Mary Fish StampinUp

Check out what fits perfectly inside the new Mini Pizza Box (bottom right) that I shared with you yesterday. Details on the pizza box here.  The pizza box accommodates the three 3 x 3 holiday cards and three envelopes above. The Mini Pizza Boxes will be available for purchase when the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog begins Sept. 1.  

Here’s a wish list to print and track your favorite holiday products.

I love hearing from you. If you have a question or thoughts to share about today’s post, please, COMMENT HERE.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Each “tree” on the 3 x 3 note cards was cropped from one of the patterns in the Quilted Christmas Designer Series Paper Stack (available Sept. 1).  Print and enjoy my FREE Updated Designer Series Paper Coordinating Color Chart.  It includes colors for the new holiday designer series paper!

  • I used the coordinating dies from Quilt Builder Framelits Dies for the tree (triangle), tree base and star. Purchase the Christmas Quilt stamp set (not shown) and dies together as the Christmas Quilt Photopolymer Bundle (#146026) and save 10%!

  • They’re back!  Envelopes for 3 x 3 cards will be available for purchase in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog on Sept. 1  Three envelopes and three note cards fit neatly in the box!

  • Each envelope flap received a coordinating pattern from the Quilted Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  Watch my video for tips on how I did this.

  • Each tree is dressed up with Real Red 1/8″ Solid Ribbon (new in the Holiday Catalog, #144631).  A Glue Dot on the back of the tree keeps the ribbon in place and makes tying a bow much easier!

  • Both sentiments are from Cheers to the Year Stamp Set.  Wood-mount #144925 or Clear-Mount #144928.  Available Sept. 1.
  • Paper Crafting Must-Have!  Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies were used to crop and add the sweet dashes to the square and circles (sentiment) on the 3 x 3 cards.

Mini Pizza Box Delivery!

Stampin Up Mini Pizza Box Holiday Christmas Gift Idea - Mary Fish StampinUp

Stampin’ Up! has delivered an adorable Mini Pizza Box in the 2017 Holiday Catalog (starts Sept. 1).  The  eight boxes in the pack (144645, $6) are cut, scored and go together in seconds.  No adhesive needed!  

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Put it on your holiday wish list!  Each assembled box measures 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ x 1″.  They are food safe (cookie-friendly) or great for small gifts.  In tomorrow’s post, I’ll share what I created to fit perfectly in the box!

  • The Real Red 3″ x 3″ stitched tree pattern is from the Quilted Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stack (available Sept. 1).
  • The felt tree is from Stitched Felt Embellishments (available Sept. 1).  I love the stitched details – an instant WOW! factor on a gift.

Pretty Petal Garden Mini Treat Bags

Stampin Up Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies Petal Garden - Mary Fish StampinUp

On Monday’s post I shared a Mini Treat Bag using new products from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog (starts Sept. 1).  Today’s post focuses on the pretty Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack currently available in the annual catalog.  It instantly brings these treat bags to life.  They are for the same rose-themed party I made the Ferrero Rocher roses for on yesterday’s post!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • When I’m using Designer Series Paper, I like to use my Designer Series Paper Coordinating Color Chart to grab coordinating Stampin’ Up! card stock, stamps, embellishments and more.  
  • Print and keep handy.  Here’s my FREE Designer Series Paper Color Chart with all the current designer series paper (Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog).  For those of you with lots of retired paper, check out this chart with most of the Stampin’ Up! designer series paper and colors listed from 2008 to now.

  • Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack colors include Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White.
  • It just fits!  The 6 x 6 size of the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack works with the larger of the two Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.  You’ll need a second sheet (but won’t use all) for the smaller die that fits in the back.

  • Must -Have!  Tear & Tape Adhesive is your “go to” when putting together envelopes and 3-D items.
  • Yummy Whisper White 3/8″ Classic Ribbon is the perfect way to wrap up the design.  I will be tucking in receipts for donations I made (in lieu of gifts) to our local animal shelter.  
  • My inspiration for this layout is from the uber talented Shannon Jaramillo, a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Virtual Community.  You can visit her blog and see more of her pretty creations here.
