Honey Bee Desktop Calendars

Happy New Year my friends! I've been busy making lots of desktop calendars the last week or so. I'll spend a few days showing the different versions. I'm sending them out as New Year treats to all my customers who spent over $150 with me in 2019 as well as all my first level downline. 

The calendars were purchased here. The Honey Bee stamps and dies as well as the  Golden Honey Designer Series Paper will all be available on Friday, January 3rd! 
I'll share how to make these in the coming weeks.

Merry Moose Gift Card Holder

Hello everyone! We've only got four more days until Christmas! Ack!! So, the time has come to tie up all those loose ends. This week I've been a gift card making machine. I've got got cards for all the teachers, my hair dresser and my mail lady. To keep them simple, I've made them all the same type of holder (see yesterday's post for measurements and video) and am using up scraps of Christmas DSP to decorate them. 

Today's gift card holder features the Merry Moose- I love him! And yes, that punch sold out earlier in the sesasojn, but not to worry- it will be back in next Fall's Holiday Catalog! Yay! 

Inside I used the Christmas Time Is Here DSP along with a label cut with new dies coming in the Spring Catalog in January. They are called Stitched So Sweetly Dies. (On the front, I also used Poppy Parade DSP from the Brights DSP Pack. )

Hopefully, this helps you get your to do list checked off this weekend! I love getting gift cards as gifts and hopefully all my recipients do too!

Christmas Gleaming Stamp Club To Go Scrapbook Page

Hello everyone! Today, I want to share this month's Stamp Club To Go Scrapbook page and alternate card. Each month, I send my club members either all the completed components for a Scrapbook Page or an alternate card for my non scrappers. This month, I used the Christmas Gleaming bundle to create the main elements. 

I used the Snowman Season DSP (Sold Out) as well. And then, I created a little tag at the bottom with Hearts Come Home stamp set. The trees match the paper perfectly!! 

For the alternate card, I tried to copy the page exactly. But, when I was done, I felt like it was too busy. 

So I removed the bottom DSP but now that I look at the photos, I think maybe I liked the first one better. Uh well, this one is cute as well! The bough is from the Peaceful Bough Dies and the words are from the Word Wishes Dies. 

As I mentioned, this projects were for my Stamp Club To Go program. It's a 6 month program where I send you three complete projects each month (like the one above) and in turn you place an order each month.
 One month, you receive Stampin' Rewards, usually between $25 and $35 in free product of your choice!! 

If you are interested in Stamp Club to Go, you can find the details here
You can see the past projects by scrolling through all theses posts. 
I have a group starting in January- just in time to start the new Spring and Sale A Bration catalogs. If you join Stamp Club to Go in January, you will get the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog SPIRAL BOUND in June! Those are exclusive to my club members.  It's really great time to join because you'll get free goodies during Sale A Bration (Jan-March.)

Gift Card Holder

Hello everyone! Can you believe Christmas is only a little over a week away!? It's crush time! This week, I've got to make a buck of gift card holders. I plan on using this fun design I found on Pinterest. I created this gift card holder for my downline Kelly. We had a team Secret Santa and this is what I sent her! 

She said her favorite color was blue, so I went with Night of Navy DSP from the Neutrals DSP Stack. On the front I added a wreath cut with the All Around Wreath Dies. In the center, I added the deer from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies.  The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas.  The Navy piece on the top is embossed with an Embossing Folder coming out in the Spring Catalog on January 3rd. 

The front flap folds over the bottom flap. I held it in place with a small button magnet.  I love theses magnets and they are very inexpensive. You can find them here on Amazon (affiliate link).

And here is the inside. I created a small pocket by folding the paper. I plan on filming a video for this gift card holder later this week, once I have made more of them! 

I sent her some other goodies including one of our Sweet Treat Cups (retired) with a dome on the top. 

On the top of the box are more of those beautiful Snow Glob Scene Dies. I also added a bunch of Snowflake Sequins.  It makes for a great little shaker box! Inside were Candy Cane Hersey Kisses. Yum! 
And lastly, you can see all the goodies I sent here. I added some fuzzy socks, a fun Santa pen and Peppermint Chapstick. I hope she loved it as much as I loved making it! 

Stop back by later this week for more Gift Card Holders!

Facebook Friday- Last Minute Treat Holders

Hello everybody! It's Friday and that means another Facebook Live! 
This week I'm going to show you three last minute treat holders. I decided not to stick to one stamp set like I usually do because I have so many stamp sets I haven't used yet and I just wanted to play with everything! 

 In case you've never joined me for Facebook Live, I go live every week, (typically on Friday at 2:00 CST) on my Pink Buckaroo Stampers Group page with three projects. Everyone is welcome to join! 

If you are unable to join me live, I will upload the recording here afterwards.

First we'll make a Hostess Cupcake Box. I love this skate die from the Free Skate Bundle and wanted to use it as the focal point. 

For the next project, I'm going to show you this fun table gift I had at my retreat last month. It's based on a design by Amy Storie. I simplified mine a bit and am going to show you how to make this unique mini soda can gift holder.    

And last, I'll show you how to make this simple gift bag from gift wrap! Inside is my famous Crack Corn! I've been making this for years and it's SO addicting, we've named it Crack Corn!! You can find the recipe here. This year, I've found the Puffcorn at Target. It's not always easy to find. Here it is on Amazon, although this is a box of 12 bags, which is about how much I make every year! 

They have all the products I used and measurements for each project. 

***Remember, if you put in an order ($35 minimum) by 
Monday, DECEMBER 16th, 2019 at midnight, 
I'll send you all three make and takes for free! 
But, your order MUST be in by Wednesday at midnight!! 
You must use Hostess Code FFZQ7GYY.

Prize Patrol!

This week, I'm giving away two Christmas Crowd stamp sets along with two pairs of Stampin Blend each.

And if you're looking for a last minute gift or you just don't know what to buy a friend, I have a great deal on my Gift Certificates!
