Creativity Abounds Blog Hop – Ferrero Rocher Gift Box

Welcome to our Creativity Abounds Blog Hop. We are a group of very keen Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that are coming together to share our creative ideas with you. We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can Inspire your creativity.

If you live in Australia and shop with me you will receive this tutorial bundle FREE! This month’s tutorial bundle showcases Christmas or Gift Packaging. I’m sure you will get lots of use from this tutorial – change the DSP and you can adapt the packaging for any occasion.

Our blog hop each month is a project along the theme of the tutorial, but is a different design from the tutorial project. My tutorial project is a single Ferrero Rocher holder. Continuing with the theme, I have made a bigger Ferrero Rocher gift box for this blog hop.

It closes up to make a compact box that can be held closed with a bow

Join me at 10:00 on Sunday morning for my Facebook live and I’ll show you how to make this box.

Here is a sneak peek of all the projects in this month’s tutorial bundle:

You may be starting here or have come from someone else’s blog – either way there is a list at the end of this post to help you move around all the different blogs and see all the amazing projects that will be demonstrated at the Stamp Camp. We all have our country listed – so if you are looking for a demonstrator in your country, these demonstrators would love to look after you with your Stampin’ Up!® shopping or if you would like to join our Stampin’ Up!® teams.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – Pretty Pillow Box Wedding Favours

Thank you for joining us for another Stampin Dreams blog hop. The theme for today’s hop is “Anything But A Card”.
Sometimes life and blog hops line up perfectly – I spoke to a dear friend’s son over the weekend who is getting married in June. We discussed party favours for them to give away. This is a sample that I made as an idea for them

Most of the products that I have used for this are retiring (so if you want the heart punch pack, heart pearls, or matte black dots you need to order them ASAP). At the time of writing these products are available in Australia and are discounted to fantastic prices! The Pretty Pillowbox dies are moving to online exclusive while stocks last and are currently discounted to $24.00 (This is less than half the original price!)

Hop around and see what other fun ideas are being shared with us

Playing In The Rain Treat Pouch

It is amazing how fast time seems to go by. It seems like I have just finished making Christmas cards, and Easter is already here! If you missed my Facebook live on yesterday, I made these cute treat pouches for the Maltesers Easter bunnies

These are really fun to make and come together easily. You can make a whole heap of them in a very short time. I would suggest that you use non-directional DSP as this will make things a whole lot easier. I used the super cute Playing In The Rain bundle. The bunny is perfect for Easter (or any other occasion). The stamp set and dies are carrying over to the new catalogue, but won’t be available as a bundle. If it is on your wish list, be sure to place your order to take advantage of the bundle discount.

If you missed the Facebook live you can watch the replay below.

I do a Facebook live every Sunday at 10:00 am. Please come and join me and see what I am getting up to!

Framed Florets tag Gift Card Holder

Do you love giving gift cards to people when they need a present? If you answer is yes, Stampin’ Up! has a wonderful kit available called the Christmas Gifting kit. This kit come with everything that you need to make 9 tags with a gift card holder on the back which have a Christmas feel to them.

I decided that I really like these tags, but what if I wanted them for an occasion other than Christmas? I set about to re-create them – and I think that I succeeded. I used the Framed Florets bundle which will be available in the January – June 2023 mini catalogue, but can be purchased on pre-order from the 4th November. The DSP is Fitting Florets and will only be available during the pre-order period.

I made this is my regular Facebook live last week. You can watch the replay below:

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Gift Packaging

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is “Gift Packaging”. Whether you are still wrapping your Christmas presents, or giving a birthday or just because present, I am sure that you will find inspiration here.

This project was inspired by Debbie Blake, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Western Australia. All that you need to make this is a square piece of DSP (this one uses Beauty of the Earth DSP) and a library clip. To make it, all you need to do is fold your paper!

If you use Christmas paper, you can tie a ribbon through the library clip and it can double up as a Christmas tree ornament. These are photos showing the top and bottom of the bag

Here is a quick video which will explain how to fold the paper

Be sure to complete the hop to see all the wonderful ideas that we have to share with you. The next stop is Annette. I can’t wait to see what she has created this month.
