International Blog Highlights Teacher Gifts Teabag Gift Box using Share What You Love Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah International Blog Highlights Teacher Gifts!

Kylies International Blog Highlight banner

Welcome to StampinByHannah today for the August Blog Highlight! I adore taking part in these every month and was totally honoured to be chosen as a top pick in July! You can see the winners blog hop from last month HERE!

I think Kylie has set us a really tough challenge this month! It might just be me though… Teacher Gifts?! Now, for us here in the UK, this is a little late as the kids are all currently off school for the summer. But, I don’t have any children either… so the whole thing is a bit lost on me to be honest! However, I’m always up for a challenge…. so, Teacher Gifts it is, and Teacher Gifts you have got!

How to make a fun Teacher Gift using the Envelope Punch Board and Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

These are really simple little gifts, because I understand that you need something quick, and probably multiples of them for all those fabulous Teaching Assistants (I know about those… my mother and mother in law both work in schools!). So, I’ve these cute boxes are made in a snap using the Envelope Punch Board, and each hold 4 individually wrapped tea bags.

The Designer Series Paper is called Share What You Love, and because it’s a heavier weight than most of the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper it’s great for boxes and bags! I’ve even taken a sanding block to it for a fun shabby effect.

The sentiment and dies are taken from the Stitched All Around bundle. I am in LOVE with these stamps and dies! This sentiment is particularly special to me; as I used to sing this song to a resident every single morning… it always made her smile, and she would sing along to. I left that job back in April, and I know that that lady has since passed (not wanting to bring this post down!)… but it’s one of the reason’s why I LOVE my day job! I know that I’m a nurse, rather than a teacher…. but these would make awesome nurses gifts!

Love What You Do Divided Sweetie Box…

How to make a cute divided box for sweeties or stationary using Stampin' Up! Share What You Love Designer Series Paper

StampinByHannah Love What You Do Divided Sweetie Box…

So, today I thought I would re-visit a project I shared on this very blog about 3 years ago! I cannot believe that I have been sharing with you here for over 4 years now, I LOVE reading all your comments but I would also love to see if you have made something inspired by something I have shared too. You can share your work with me over on my Facebook Page or, if you don’t want the world to see it, drop me an email! You never know, I might even pop something in the post to you as a Thank you!

How to make a fun box with a cut out lid using Square Framelits and Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

For all I’m calling these Divided Sweetie Boxes they would also look super cute on your desk holding all those paper clips, elastic bands and other random desk junk (do other people have this… or is it just me?!). Both of these boxes actually use the same piece of Designer Series Paper from the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper Pack, don’t you love when you can’t decide which side of the paper you love more and have to make two of something just because?! Or is that just me as well!

Measurements:

Card stock for the box base: 6 x 6″ (15 x 15 cm)

Score on all 4 sides at 1″ (2.5 cm)

Designer Series Paper for the box lid: 5-9/16 x 5-9/16″ (14.3 x 14.3 cm)

Score on all 4 sides at 3/4″ (2 cm)

Card stock for dividers: 1 piece that measures 4 x 5-1/2″ (10 x 13.8 cm) and 2 pieces that measure 2 x 5-1/2″ (5 x 13.8 cm)

Score at 2″ (5 cm) on each end and then flip the card stock over and score again at 2-3/4″ (6.9 cm)

Cute divided box with lid using pattened paper from Stampin' Up!

The most special part of these boxes for me is the Square cut out windows. In the original box I cut these by hand because I didn’t have a square die, but for this version I used the Layering Square Dies to cut the window and made the cute Crumb Cake frames too. These frames are really easy to make; first cut the straight edged square from a piece of card stock, then cut a scalloped square out around that one to create a frame. You can see exactly how I did this in the video tutorial above.

I would love to see your creations this weekend, I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun blog hop with the InspireINK team, hope to see you then!

Notebook Cover with Pen Loop using Tea Room Designer Series Paper…

Jotter sized note book cover with pen loop DIY using Stampin' Up! products

StampinByHannah Notebook Cover with Pen Loop using Tea Room Designer Series Paper…

Today’s project was inspired by my fabulous stampin’ buddy Angelina…. I am a bit of a stationary hoarder, and I need a little encouragement to actually use my notebooks, pens, sticky notes etc. sometimes! These notebooks have been hanging around in my office for a while, and I’ve covered a few in the past, but it’s time that they moved on and the best way to do that is to make them pretty and gift them to someone! So, who wants one?! I always sent notebooks and things to my team members… so who’s gonna be the next person to join my team and bag one?

How to apply a cover to a jotter pad using Tea Room Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

These both use the Tea Room Speciality Designer Series Paper to add a little something to the front of the covers, and while one I have added the stamping directly onto the paper, the other has some extra layers and details. Both are designed to hold these pens, they were gifted to us at a Stampin’ Up! OnStage event… these fabulous events are Demonstrator only entry, but I wanted to let you know that the registration for the next one (held in Birmingham this coming November) will open in August, and while we have the fabulous Stampin’ Pad Family joining offer it would be a great time to come and join my team!

Card stock: 6-1/4 x 8-1/4″ (16 x 21 cm)

Score on the short side at 2-3/4 and 3″ (7 and 7.5 cm)

Cute Stamped Vellum boxes for Yankee Candles

How to make cute Vellum boxes for Yankee candles with Stampin' Up! products

StampinByHannah Cute Stamped Vellum boxes for Yankee Candles

 

I love to craft, I make more cards than anything else…. but every once in a while I like to try something 3D. I bought a pack of Yankee candles ages ago, and they’ve sat on my ‘inspiration’ shelf ever since…. until now!

Fun stamped vellum box using Painted Harvest from Stampin' Up!

My friend Sally made a really cute box wrapped in Vellum a few months ago… and took the idea as inspiration here. The vellum is stamped using one of the leave stamps from Painted Harvest. I LOVE the look of stamped vellum… it’s one of those techniques that looks tricky, but is actually super easy. Just remember that Vellum can take a little while to dry, give it some time, and then hit it with your heat gun!

Measurements:

Card stock; 8-1/2 x 7-1/2″ (22 x 18.5 cm)

Score on the long side at 2, 4, 6 and 8″ (5, 10, 15, and 20 cm)

Score on the short side at 2, 4-1/4, and 6-1/4″ (5, 10.5 and 15.5 cm)

Vellum; 8-1/2 x 2″ (22 x 4 cm)

Stampin' Up! In Colours 2018-2020 Lovely Lipstick Pineapple Punch Grapefruit Grove Call me Clover Blueberry Bushel

This week I am sharing a whole weeks worth of inspiration featuring the new Stampin’ Up! 2018-2020 In Colours… which happens to tie in quite nicely to this weeks Inspire.Create.Challenges Colour Challenge…

Inspire.Create.Challenges In Colour Challenge using Stampin' Up! colours

One of my most favourite times in the Stampin’ Up! calendar is the release of the new In-Colours…. and this year certainly did not disappoint! These 5 fun, bright colours are going to be awesome to use during the summer, and I can see some fabulous Christmas crafting coming with Call Me Clover too!

Today’s project is a fairly simple one… borne from the need to update my Office decor! I’ve had this frame in my craft room for a couple of years, I shared the original creation HERE…. but it was starting to look tired… and I could not pass up the chance to use the Exclusive Statement of the Heart stamp before it retires Tomorrow! The frame is THIS one from IKEA (I LOVE IKEA… don’t you?!)

Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart Craft Room Home Decor Frame using Share What You Love Designer Series Paper

Today is Grapefruit Grove day in my week long celebration of all things ‘In Colour’ and I just HAD to use this piece of the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper and the Statement of the Heart Stamp Set from the Share What You Love Bundles, along with some of the pieces from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit, Pearlised Doilies and a hint of Vellum too!

This week I am sharing a daily PDF download of each project with my Email subscribers, feel free to subscribe HERE.

Do pop over to Inspire.Create.Challenges to see the work of the fabulous other members of the Design Team have made with these fun In-Colours…
