Stampin’ Up!’s Idea Book and Catalog is filled with great ideas, like this fun favor bag created from the Stampin’ Up! Pinwheels on Parade Simply Scrappin’ Kit. It’s the perfect gift bag for a summer time party!

Simply Scrappin’ Kit: Pinwheels on Parade (pg 168, item 126929)

To make box – use 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of cardstock and score along the long edge at 2″, 5″, 7″ and 10 “. The turn card stock long ways and score 2” across the bottom, then snip flaps to make it easier to fold in. Fold, adhere sides and bottom flaps with sticky strip.
One of the fun things about Stampin’ Up convention is swapping cards with other demonstrators. Here’s the 3×3 card I created to swap – check back later to see what great cards I received!

I’m having a great time playing with my pre-order from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog and trying out the Triple Layer/Triple Time Stamping Technique! Check out this fun triple layer stamped card that I made as one of my swaps for convention!
This card features the stamp sets available August 1 from the Holiday Mini Catalog: Toxic Treats and Googly Eyes as well as tangerine tango card stock and staz on black ink.
This technique works with just about any stamp set and looks great in monochrome, too!
Making a triple layer stamped card is easy and fun! Cut out whisper white card stock (or whatever color you choose to stamp on) in the following sizes:
5 1/4 x 4
4 1/4 x 3
3 1/4 x 2
Layer using removable adhesive and stamp. You will see some gaps at the edges but that’s ok. Next card stock for the background layers:
5 1/2 x 4 1/4
4 1/2 x 3 1/4
3 1/2 x 2 1/4
Line up layers with stamped pieces and you’ve created a great card! Share your creations here!
