There's a new baby on our street! I got to meet him at about 10 pm last night as he and his parents were walking home from visiting his grandparents, who also live just a few doors down from me in the opposite direction. He's absolutely beautiful. But he's three weeks early, so I was caught off guard with my new baby crafting I had planned.
This #CraftySaturday Card-in-a-Bag takes no more than 20 minutes from start to finish. The bag uses 2, 12" x 12" sheets of matching Twinkle Twinkle designer series paper. So, break into your stash and start crafting.
Hmmmm...now that I have the card and the bag, I guess that means I need to go shopping to find something to put in it!

August 2018 - Christmas Card Club Begins in August!!! Watch for Holiday Product Share information!
It's time for Christmas in July I'm tired of the heat and find myself longing for cooler temps, Christmas carols, the smells of cinnamon and apples, and what else? Christmas Cards! Today's Facebook Live #CraftySaturday showed you how to make a 3-panel card, a gift bag, and an envelope -all from just 1 piece of Under the Mistletoe 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper and the Stylish Christmas Stamp Set.
Did you know the Under the Mistletoe 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper is part of the Buy 3/Get 1 Free sale? Now through the end of July, buy 3 of the below paper stacks and get 1 free. You can mix and match, or buy all 4 of the same. I know I'll be stocking up on Under the Mistletoe 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper because I'll be using it for a class I'm teaching in Boston in August and for August's Christmas Card Club! (Details coming soon!)
Measurements for the card and bag are located right below the video. Happy Stamping!
Begin with a 12" x 12" Sheet of Designer Series Paper, and cut at 5 1/2". The small piece will make the card and the larger piece will make the bag and envelope flap.
Base: 5 1/2" x 12. Score at 4 1/4" and 8 1/2"
Outer front panel and first inside panel:
Cut remaining sheet of designer series paper into 6 1/2" x 9 1/2"
Envelope flap: Remaining Piece of Designer Series Paper

Who said pretty paper is just for cards and memory keeping? You organize can make your craft room pretty in no time, with just cardstock and designer series paper. And the best part...it's inexpensive, and easy to change out when you get tired of it!
Today's project was featured on my LIVE Crafty Saturday Facebook broadcast. You're welcome to join us every Saturday morning as we craft together over coffee. Actually, you drink coffee while I do the crafting. That way, you can craft when you want! Come on over to my Facebook Group every Saturday at 9 am. And it's not too late to catch today's post. Pop on over, and leave me a comment on my Facebook Live post for a chance to win your own Embossing Folder Holder. Share my post for two chances! Comments and shares must be made by midnight Sunday, 6/17 and a random winner will be select on Mon day, 6/18.
I hope you have wonderful and crafty weekend! I'll be filming videos for next week's 16-Card Extravaganza and learning how to use the Stamparatus! I know...I haven't used it yet. But my goal is to get it out of the box and actually use it!

August 2018 - Christmas Card Club Begins in August!!!
At my classes, I like to have little place setting gifts, a little box or bag filled with goodies. They make a fun "thank you" gift and it's a fun way to show the versatility of the Stampin' Up! products, and show that you can do more than just make cards. This month, I have a dilemma. Not a bad one, it's very good! I have more people taking my Sweet & Simple Sunday Class "To Go" than I do in person! Sending boxes in the mail is not only costly, but they tend to get smashed in the mail. The solution? A fold-flat box that I can tuck right into their package and not worry about it getting ruined.
I love making boxes. At first, it was intimidating, and seemed so complicated. But, that's were videos like the one below come in. Step-by-step directions and someone who breaks down all the steps makes all the difference in the world. I don't ever mind sharing directions or measurements. To me, nothing is more frustrating than wanting to learn from someone else, but they don't give any measurements. I can't learn from that, can you?
And if you'd like the directions for the card in the back ground, you can find them on this blog post from earlier this week.

July 2018 - Get Ready for BINGO!!!
Yesterday, I shared with you my Hey Chick Note Cards that I'm packaging as a collection for the fundraiser for Chatham Trades. (Read that blog here). I also promised that I'd share a video about how to make the box. Now...off to go make some more projects for Friday night.
