Basket Bunch Tags

“Basket Bunch” is a hidden gem on the Retiring List.  The stamp set is discounted 20% and the framelits are discounted a whopping 50%.  They’re not just for Easter – I made these cute baskets of flowers for my gift tags with these products.

If you buy these items in the Online Store, buy them individually to get the discount.  The stamps will be $16.80 and the framelits $15.50.

Here’s a closer look at the tag.  I used a 2″ x 4 1/4″ strip of So Saffron, punched with the Banner Triple Punch.  The other colors are Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake.  I love how these colors show up against the Kraft Gift Bag.  The bag is stamped in Crumb Cake with the “Brushstrokes” Background Stamp.

Beyond the focal point of Basket Bunch, I pulled together a little of this and that to make it look finished.  This is the kind of project that you can make fabulous with just a few scraps.  I used “Thoughtful Banners” for the sentiment.

If you’re looking for another non-Easter use for this set, here’s one of my favorites…

Products used for the gift bag and tag are shown in the carousel below, but the discounted prices are not reflected there.  Click here to check out the online store for all retiring products and prices. Retiring products are only available while supplies last.

Order $35 or more, and I will send you my Featured Card (the Jar of Love pocket card, through the end of May).  Orders over $50 also qualify for a Buckeye Point in my Loyalty Rewards Program.

Have a great weekend!

Cool Treats Pocket Card

The Mini Treat Bag Thinlit makes such a great pocket for a pocket card, and it fits in our Medium (A2) envelope.  I used the Cool Treats Bundle for this fun birthday card.

The Pool Party pull-out card measures 3 1/2″ x 5″ with a 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ mat of Whisper White.  These are so fun to make, and don’t you just love projects that show off both sides of the designer paper?!

Party Animal Grad Card

Like its name says, the Party Animal Suite is ready for a party.  This time of year, our thoughts turn to graduations, but you could easily substitute another greeting.  I used several items from the suite – the designer paper, washi tape and embellishments. Having all of these coordinating elements makes a card come together so easily!

I cut a 3″ x 4″ banner piece from the striped designer paper, and I trimmed out a shallow “^” shape with my paper snips.  I punched a 2 1/2″ circle in it, and the greeting piece was cut with one of the Layering Circles dies.  The greeting is from the stamp set “B.Y.O.P.”, and the Tangerine Tango piece running behind the banner measures 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″.

Today is the last day to order my Weather Together Class To Go.  Click here for more details, or contact me at buckeyeinklingsorders@gmail.com to order.

OnStage Highlights Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers hop for April.  This month we are sharing highlights from our worldwide April 2017 OnStage events.  While I was not able to attend, I did send some swaps and treats to friends who attended.  Today I am sharing one of my handmade items.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog (Chris Slogar) or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the projects.

I covered and decorated a 5″ x 8″ mini legal pad.

The Sweet Sugarplum cardstock wrap measures 8 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 4″, 4 1/4″, 9 3/8″ and 9 5/8″.  A small piece of transparent velcro holds this folder closed – you can barely see it just inside the loop of Tip Top Taupe Mini Stripe ribbon at the far left in this picture.  It attaches to the opposite side of the Sweet Sugarplum flap that is open on the right side.

I used the Basket Bunch bundle to make the cute basket of flowers.  A length of 3/8″ Sweet Sugarplum ribbon from the Succulent Garden Ribbon Combo pack runs from top to bottom of the matted pieces.  The dimensions of the matted pieces are as follows:

Tip Top Taupe  4 1/2″ x 7 1/2″

Whisper White 4 1/4″ x 7 1/4″

Succulent Garden Gingham designer paper 4″ x 7″

 Thank you for taking part in our blog hop.  Remember that currently you are at my blog – Chris Slogar – so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next, and enjoy!

Tool Chest Stair Step Card

The tools from the Nailed It bundle are perfect for a Tool Chest card.  I used a greeting from “Suite Sentiments”, with TOOL added from “Labeler Alphabet”.

Here’s an end view of the folds.  We have made these before – let me know if you need help.  I will refer you back to the patterns included with these similar cards.  I used the folds from the second pattern, except I made the vertical cut at 2 3/4″ on my Tool Chest instead of 2″.

The top two drawers measure 3/4″ x 2 1/2″, and the lower two drawers measure 1″ x 2 1/2″.  I added a skinny strip of Silver Foil to each drawer as a drawer pull.

Click here to shop now, or click on an item in the carousel to go to a specific product.  Orders over $50 earn a Buckeye Point in my Loyalty Rewards program, and I’ll also send you my featured card.

Have a great day!

April Showers

“Weather Together” is a great set for any month of the year, but it makes a great seasonal card, too.  This one is a fun fold.

The Smoky Slate base measures 4 1/4″ x 8 1/4″, scored at 2 3/4″.  The Smoky Slate designer papers measure 4″ x 5 1/4″ and 4″ x 2 1/2″.

The folding Sweet Sugarplum piece measures  3 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.  The Smoky Slate and Whisper White mats are each 3″ x 4″.

The Weather Together Bundle is included in my current Class To Go.  The class includes the bundle and pieces for 6 cards at no additional charge.  Click here for more details.

Don’t forget to shop the Retiring List as soon as possible – tools and accessories are only available while supplies last, and there are some great deals.  Click here to go to the online store.  Order $35 or more, and I will send my current Featured Card.  Orders over $50 also qualify for a Buckeye Point in my Loyalty Rewards Program.

Easter Throwbacks

I found some cards that I made for Easter in my early days of papercrafting…

Do you remember any of the products from these days?  I think I made them around 2003, so I also found an Easter picture of me and my girls from 2003…

Jen is on the right – she and her dolls were inseparable.  Julia is in yellow – showing off Clifford and the Scooby Doo watch that was in her Easter Basket.  It seems like more than 14 years have passed, but then again, it seems like this was just yesterday.  Funny how time is like that.

Have a great day!

Weather Together Class To Go

I chose the Weather Together Bundle for my April Class To Go because I really like the range of events it can cover.  The cards in my class reflect this – a summery beach card, a stormy encouragement card, and a shower card.  Not only is it versatile in terms of events, it is great with all colors – brights, pastels, neutrals.  I think you’ll enjoy it!

For the cost of the bundle and shipping, you will have the supplies you need to make six great cards, two each of the three designs shown.

In order to comply with Stampin’ Up! rules, I must take orders before obtaining product for the class.  I will take orders through Wednesday, April 19, or until I reach capacity.  At that point, I will order product and create kits.  The kits will ship out to you no later than Friday, April 28.

Here’s what’s included:

Weather Together Stamp Set

Umbrella Weather Framelits

Materials to make six cards, pre-cut, scored, and embossed as necessary

Six Envelopes

Illustrated instructions with dimensions

You will need:

Assorted Ink Pads (I used Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and Archival Basic Gray)

Big Shot

Adhesives

The class cost is based on the retail price of the bundle with tax and shipping for me to receive the materials.  I have also added a $7.20 priority mail cost for shipping to you once I have added the class materials.  There is no additional cost for the card materials and instructions.

Weather Together Class To Go     $55.00

To get this bundle and class, please email me at buckeyeinklingsorders@gmail.com to receive a Paypal invoice for the Class To Go Kit.

Big Numbers

It’s great to have these big numbers to highlight milestone birthdays – especially when the number is high!  I also love the flowers that come with the “Number of Years” stamp set – I have done them here in Wild Wisteria, Rose Red, Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron.  I think they are perfect for the spring birthday of my dear friend’s Mother.

 Have a great day!
