SCS Shop Hop Day 2

Good morning all!

Today is Sunday, and our church’s annual Burning Bowl ceremony, where we write down something we want to let go of in the coming year (physical, emotional, material, it doesn’t matter) and it gets burned away so we are able to begin anew.  It’s something we look forward to every year and I can’t wait!  What are your favorite traditions as you look to begin a New Year??

We’ve got 4 Flavors of the Day:

1) Heart Breaker on sale for $5!

2) All Embossing Powders are marked down to $1.00

3) A ton of new items are on SPECIAL PROMOTION

4) All MFT Paper Packs on sale for $4.50

And these prices are BEFORE your SCSHOP code to save an additional 25%!

Wednesday Stamp Club (12.23.09)

Hi all!  It is SO hard to believe that Xmas is just around the corner!  Who’s prepared?  Not me…Sigh.

I am back with another WSC challenge, featuring another FREE TEMPLATE, to make either a shaped Mushroom card or a Fairy Wings card!  Woot!  I think you guys are liking the templates, huh??  Anything to make life simpler…and avoid measuring.  I am SO NOT a math girl.  I abhor trying to figure out card measurements.  I {heart} printing something off and cutting it and having it turn out beautiful!

Isn’t she cute??  Oh how I love Pure Innocence!  They remind me so much of Emma!

Let’s get started:

Here I have gathered all of my supplies.  I used the Simply Spring DIGI Papers in Gingham, Fairy Girl PI set, Royalty Ribbon Nest and some wire.

I printed out two of the templates, cut one out at full size, and then cut the second, purple layer out at a smaller size so it would layer well with the full sized wings.

To make my antenna, I took two equal pieces of wire and curled them around my fingertip.  Then, I taped them to the back of my smallest pair of wings, before adhereing the two sets of wings together.

Here is a picture of both wings, with the antenna between them.

Here’s a close up on my sweet cheeked PI girl all colored and ready to go!

Here is the template as a mushroom.  I love how versatile it is!  I know there are a couple of other DT Members who’ll be posting samples as well, so make sure to check out the GALLERY and when uploading your creation, use keyword MFTWSC122309.

Here are the Scoop Specials, now through Thursday!

Need a quick gift card holder? Or 33% more for your money?

You’re in the right place for both!

First up, I created this fancy dancy gift card holder (following the SCS Color Challenge HERE) and wanted to share it with all of you.

There is a FREE Template for this project HERE.

This is my gathering of goods I’ll be using for my gift card holders.  I used kraft card stock, Summer & Spring Paper Packs.  I printed out the template on the kraft card stock and cut and scored where directed.

I used my Glue Glider to add tape to both sides of the small tab area.

When I fold it over, it creates a pocket to stash my gift card.  Isn’t that clever?  Hubster brought home a gift cert from Panera Bread (YUM) and I looked at it and thought “I can make that!” and so I did!

Here is my pair of gift card holders.  Each sheet of 8.5 x 11″ card stock will make two.  I used Cool Yule and Candy Cane Kisses ribbon.

Here is a pic of the inside, holding some iTunes gift cards.

Here is a close up of one finished gift card holder.  I’m thinking the person receiving this might like it ALMOST as much as the gift inside!

There are specials galore now through Thursday:

*Want 33% MORE for your money? Purchase any 2 Gift Vouchers and receive a 3rd gift vouchers of equal value FREE!  Your gift vouchers will be emailed to you separately.  You can forward them to all your favorite  Stampers or hoard them for yourself!

The gift vouchers can be used on ANY of YOUR Favorite Things from MFT.  Pure Innocence, Who’s That Girl, Flopsey and MORE!

*All orders OVER $25 receive 2 FREE DIGI Stamps!  Enter code 2HolidayDIGIs at checkout to receive the $6.00 discount.  You MUST add your 2 DIGI Stamps to your cart when ordering for the discount to be valid.

*Flavor of the Day is In The Background on sale for $10, a savings of over 40%!!

That’s it for now, be back tomorrow with the next installment of Wednesday Stamp Club, and I hope you’ll think it’s magical!

Cooly Yule Treat Box

I HAD to pop back with another picture of the Holiday Treat Box I made for this weeks Wednesday Stamp Club.  I added a gift card in the back of the treat box, and adhered it with a pop dot.  Then I added more pop dots to secure the candy cane to the gift card.

With the addition of the gift card, the Holiday Treat Box is elevated into something I’m absolutely thrilled to hand out, and I’m sure Emma’s teachers will love it!

You have until Tuesday to participate in the WSC this week, and two chances to WIN, HERE and HERE.

We have added a whole new category so you can easily see what’s on SPECIAL!  There are 5 fabulous WTG sets (and a PI girl you’ll need for next weeks WSC) on sale through the weekend, so check it out!

Question of the Day:

I mentioned yesterday that we have an annual tradition of choosing a new ornament for our tree each Christmas season.  What are YOUR family traditions around the Holidays?  Inquiring (nosy…) minds wanna know!

A peppermint TWIST on the Candy Kit

Happy Friday!  We have a busy weekend of last minute shopping and wrapping to do, and of course it’s the girls last day of school (figures, huh?) so we will be scrambling trying to get it all together before Santa makes his visit!

I was thinking of a fun and EASY way to hand something out to the kids in Em’s class for her party today, and then inspiration struck!  Why not transofrm the I Want Candy  Kit into TREAT boxes!

It was SO super simple that I was able to knock out many of these, without breaking a sweat!  I printed out a sheet of Simply Spring Stripes DIGI Paper, and cut 4 small pieces to cover each panel, leaving room for 1 white panel for my image and sentiment.

I then stamped my I Want Candy swirled candy image (and added 1 stripe so there were an even number) and colored every other stripe red, and filled the white ones in with Sparkling Ice glitter.

Then I lined up my To: and From: sentiments so they could be stamped rapid fire style on all the other treat boxes, and put a few different candies inside each box.  PERFECTION!

Have a happy weekend, and don’t forget, today is the last day for the FREE Cool Yule Scoop Specials:

* Every order over $25 will receive a FREE Single DIGI Paper Pack (I used Simply Spring Stripes for my project, above).  You MUST add your selected SINGLE DIGI PAPER PACK ($2.95 value) to your cart.  Then, in the COUPON/DISCOUNT area at checkout, enter code DIGISINGLE (cap sensitive) to receive your $2.95 discount.

Cool Yule Gift Tag

Happy Thursday all!  Apparently you guys LOVED yesterday’s VIP Kit since they were all snatched up by early afternoon, so I thought I’d come back with a little Cool yule love for those still struggling (ME! ME! ME!) with gifty stuff.

To make this tag, I used a Sizzix die, but a nestie would work JUST fine.  There’s all sorts of fun stuff going on in this baby, and since it’s made of chipboard, would also double as a sweet ornament!

Every year, each member of our family picks out a new ornament, but after seeing how easy it was to make this, and how adorable it turned out, we might be starting a NEW family tradition this year by MAKING our own!  Who needs $10 ornaments, right?  Especially when there’s a ROOM full of crafty stuff nearby.

Two things, well three really, I wanted to mention…

1) Take a look at the MFT Design Team links where we’ve recently unvelied 2 new DT Members joining us for the January 2010 term.  See any *new* names?  How about Megan Lock and Julie Dinn!  WOOT!  We’ve got 2 more members we’ll introduce you to during the January 6th release HOP, and you will be THRILLED with both!

2) I wanted to go over this weeks Scoop Specials again since there was so much going on yesterday!

This weeks Scoop Specials are:

* Every order over $25 will receive a FREE Single DIGI Paper Pack.  You MUST add your selected SINGLE DIGI PAPER PACK ($2.95 value) to your cart.  Then, in the COUPON/DISCOUNT area at checkout, enter code DIGISINGLE (cap sensitive) to receive your $2.95 discount. Valid through December 22, 2009.

WSC – Holiday Gifts in a Jiffy (Lip Balm Tutorial)

Hi all!  Welcome to another edition of Wednesday Stamp Club!

This week, we are all about Holiday Gifts in a Jiffy.  I needed some small, stylish gifts for friends, family and teachers, and here’s what I came up with:

This is one completed gift…

and here is all 8!

I started with the Simply Spring Stripes DIGI Paper Collection, and printed the pattern out on both sides of the paper.  Then, I printed the Holiday Treat Box template on the paper as well, and cut and scored as directed.

I stamped the penguin from Cool Yule and then masked him and added the ice cube.  (If you don’t already own Cool Yule, we are offering the set FREE with orders over $100 through Friday, December 18th.  Simple list COOL YULE in the comments section of your order.  You must list COOL YULE or it will NOT be added.)

Since I wanted these to be special, personalized little gifts but also wanted to make it easy on my schedule and my budget, I decided to make little Lip Balms using the Lip Balm Kit.

Here is my beeswax in the top of my double boiler.  If you don’t have an actual double boiler, nest two pots inside each other, filling the bottom pot with water.

A close up of coconut oil with my spoon inside, ready to scoop into my measuring cup.

I’ve combined the coconut oil with the beeswax in my double boiler.

My beeswax and coconut oil are all melty, and I’m ready to add my Peppermint Essential Oil.  Please make sure you are using an essential oil that is skin SAFE.  Seriously.

To fill your tins, lay them flat and spoon the melted wax/oil into each one.  These tin containers get VERY HOT, so DO NOT hold them to fill.  The Lip Balm kit makes enough for 8 containers, but if you’d like them a little creamier (and want to save some beeswax for refills) feel free to add more coconut oil and less besswax.  The recipe is just a guide.

Here is a pic of all 8 gifts!  So simple and SO STINKIN’ CUTE!

To personalize each Lip Balm, I used a 1/2 strip of the Simply Spring Striped Paper to wrap around the tin and then punched a 1 1/4″ circle of the same paper and adhered it to the tin lid top.  I used AlphaDOTS to personalize each tin so they would have something special, made just for them!  You know there are some sets you just find yourself reaching for constantly?  That’s the way it is for me with AlphaDOTS.  It’s so versatile!

Wouldn’t you LOVE to receive one of these??  I know I would!  And I might just have to save one…for personal use, ykwim? :0)

To play along, and for your chance to win, upload your project using keyword MFTWSC121609 by midnight December 22nd.  Enter below using Mr. Linky for a chance to win a FREE MINI set! ($9 voucher)
