Some Tags for your Christmas presents!

Christmas is coming so fast! Are you ready?  Make these last minute tags for really special gifts! I used the Scalloped Tag punch topper to create these tags in only a few minutes!

I used the Under the Tree Specialty designer paper for the first two tags. This printed card stock is perfect for tags and to create boxes with the Gift Box Punch Board! It’s already printed with nice Christmas pattern so it’s really fast! I used the Cheerful Tags set for the first tag. The snowflake stamp matches the card stock pattern… I think that’s pretty cool!!! For the second tag, I used the Festival of Trees and matching Tree punch. The last tag was made with Crumb Cake card stock, a strip of Trim the Tree DSP stack and the Merry Everything stamp set. I used the little star punch from the Itty Bitty Punch pack to cut 3 little Gold glimmer stars.

The Christmas catalogue is coming to an end really soon! If you want to order anything, make sure to so it before the end of the month!

Make and Take from the Abbotsford Stampin’up Conference

I had the pleasure to be chosen by Stampin’up Canada to be the designer of the make and takes for the Abbotsford Stampin’up Conference, that took place this week-end.  For the Friday night, I was given the “Christmas Bauble” stamp set to use and I was asked to use the Blendabilities markers. Well, that was great because that stamp image  is perfect to color with the Blendabilities!!!

For the Friday Make and Takes, demonstrators made a Shaker Card, a gift Card holder, a mini card and a Gift box.

Make and Take Friday2

Here’s the Shaker Card, which features the Christmas Bauble stamp. The bauble was colored with Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Crumb Cake blendabilities markers. I used the new Confetti Stars punch to cut the tiny little stars that I put in the center of the ornament to make the shaker frame. The background is embossed with the Lucky Stars embossing folder.

Here’s a close-up of the shaker frame before assembling it behind the Bauble.

They also made a Gift Card holder made with the new Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Dies.

The gift card holder was make with Cherry Cobbler card stock stamped with the little stars from “Be the Star” stamp set. The front was made with 2 bigger stars cut with the Star Collection Framelits and the tag from “Merry Everything“.

They also made a 3″ x3” mini card. The card was made with Old Olive card stock with some “Watercolor Wonder” Washi tape and Gold Glimmer paper little stars. The “Merry Christmas” was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold powder.


Last item was a Gift box and tag made with the Gift Box Punch Board and Merry Everything stamp set. The stamp set has a matching “Note tag” punch. Buy them together as a bundle and save 15% on both! A beautiful Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen ribbon was tied on the box.

Gift Box punch Board #135863 $24.95

Here’s 2 boxes that I created with the Gift Box punch board:

Gift Boxes

The biggest box is an 4″ square and the other is 3.25″ x 1.75″. I used the new “Under the Tree” Specialty Designer Series paper to make the box. This paper is cardstock-weight kraft sheets with color print on one side and white printed pattern on the other. It’s acid free and lignin free.  It’s perfect to make these cute boxes in no time!

I also used the new “Merry Everything” stamp set that coordinates with the Note Tag punch.  Get it as a bundle and save 15% on the stamp set and the punch!

If you want to try this wonderful “Gift Box punch board”, I invite you to my Stamping Club night, Monday September 22, at 7:00pm. Please email me at julie_olivier@hotmail.com to register for the class. (Registrations end on Sept. 19).
