Merry Monday: The Sincerely Santa Project Kit

For this week’s Merry Monday project, I made a set of five gift tags using the Sincerely Santa Project Kit!  The kit comes with supplies to make 30 tags and includes the following:

  • 30 printed tags: 6 each of 5 designs in 2 sizes, 4″ x 2″ (10.2 x 5.1 cm) and 3-9/16″ x 3-1/4″ (9 x 8.3 cm)
  • Cardstock
  • Gold foil
  • Silver foil die-cut elements
  • White Baker’s Twine, 10 yards (9.1 m)

  • Printed Garden Green/white candy-striped tin, 4″ x 4″ x 4-3/4″ (10.2 x 10.2 x 12.1 cm)
  • Full color, step-by-step instructions

 

This kit is not an all-inclusive kit, meaning it does NOT include stamps, ink, or adhesive.  In order to complete the kit as shown, you also need the following:

  • Sincerely Santa stamp set
  • Cherry Cobbler Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Garden Green Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Snail Adhesive
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Here’s a peek at the Sincerely Santa stamp set! The stamp set comes in your choice of wood mount or clear mount, and includes 6 red rubber stamps:

Check out the close ups of each tag below:

For my version of the tags, I made a few minor changes from what’s written in the instructions, but for the most part, they’re very close to the original designs.  That’s the great thing about kits though!  You can make them as instructed, or you can switch them up to make them the way YOU want to make them!

This kit is perfect for holiday crafting!  Why not buy a couple of kits, a set of the other supplies, and gather some friends for a craft night?  The kit can be found on page 32 of the Holiday Catalog, or in the online store HERE.

Here are close ups of each of the four cards this kit makes:

And check out the gorgeous color palette in this kit!  I just love the mix of pinks, greens, and purples against the black and white.  These colors are just so pretty together:

There is also a separate REFILL available for this kit too!  So if you need to make more than 20 cards, you can buy the extra supplies to do so.  The refill includes everything that the full kit includes except the stamps, ink, clear block, and box!

 

 

Sometimes it’s nice to just be able to sit down and make some pretty cards without having to think too much about the design and prep work.  This is when kits come in handy, as the designing is all done for you, and everything is pre-cut and ready to go!  You just have to sit down and get right to the fun!

Using the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit to Decorate Projects

Sometimes you need to make a card fast, and having some pretty, pre-printed, die cut pieces ready to go could come in handy!  The Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit is a great item to have on hand for just such a situation!  It includes colorful, pre-printed die cuts, ribbon, mini clothespins, and more to help quickly create beautiful projects.  It includes everything shown below:

This kit includes:
* 3 sheets vellum/silver foil die-cuts
* 3 sheets printed cardstock/silver foil die-cuts
* 1 sheet white cardstock/silver foil die-cut numbers
* 6 one inch (2.5 cm) mini paper/silver foil tassels with jump rings, 2 each of 3 colors (Flirty Flamingo, Marina Mist, white)
* white/silver foil 1/8″ (3.2 mm) washi tape, 1 yard
* 12 one inch (2.5 cm) white mini clothespins
* Marina Mist 3/8″ (1 cm) Scalloped Velvet Ribbon, 1 yard

Coordinating colors: Berry Burst, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Marina Mist, Old Olive

For this card, I used one of the floral die cuts from the kit, as well as some of the vellum die cuts, to decorate the front of the card.

This kit perfectly coordinates with all of the other products in the Sweet Soiree Suite!  You can either use this kit as an add on with other products in the suite, or use it as a stand alone item!  To view the full suite of products, please click HERE.

For this card, I used a strip of the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper, along with coordinating colors from the suite for the base and other layers.  The sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set, which I stamped and then cut out with a die from the Layering Circles Framelits.  The sentiment piece and the floral piece are adhered with Dimensionals.  And of course, I added a couple of silver Metallic Enamel Shapes to give it a little extra shine!  Hope you like it!

Soft Sayings Card Kit

With all of the excitement surrounding the Holiday Catalog, it’s easy to forget about the Annual Catalog for awhile! But there are still plenty of birthdays and other everyday occasions that need to be celebrated during the holiday season as well!  Always have a card on hand for these occasions when you have the Soft Sayings Card Kit. This kit makes 20 beautiful everyday occasion cards (2 each of 10 different designs) including birthday, thank you, friendship, and more!

The colors on these cards are stunning!  I love the combination of greens, yellows, pinks, and more on the softly watercolored backgrounds.  The kit includes everything you need to complete the cards (with the exception of scissors and adhesive).  To complete this kit, I recommend using glue dots, snail, and/or multipurpose glue.

The kit also includes 20 mix and match envelopes, watercolored to match the cards.  And the cards are fast and easy to assemble.  Full color instructions are included, so even if you are new to cardmaking, you can still easily complete this kit!

Need more than 20 cards? There’s a refill available! The refill includes everything in the full kit, except the stamps, ink, block, and box. For more information on this beautiful kit, please click here.
