Alternative Lots To Love Box

I have another alternative for the Lots To Love Box framelits.  There are quite a few varieties out there.  Mine is very simple, and easy to make.  I dressed it up as a masculine gift.  Although after you look at it, think of a baby crib.  I cannot get that thought out of my head and will have to give that a try next.

Lots to Love Box Framelits, 145653


My little box fits four of the Merci Chocolates.  It is  made from one cutting of the Lots To Love Box.  To make the intended box you need to make two cuts with the framelits.  I used the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper and the Tailored Tag Punch to create the belly band for my treat holder.  The sentiment is from the Southern Serenade stamp set.




  • Cut one of the Lots To Love Box
  • Cut off 1 1/4″ from the straight end of the box
  • Score at 5/8′ from the same end (straight end)
  • Fold and burnish on the score line, EXCEPT the one closest to the rounded end
  • Cut the flap pieces at the straight end to match the ones on the rounded end.
  • Tape box together.


  • Belly Band is 8 X 2, and scored at 2 78, 3 1/2, 6 1/2 ,7 1/8.
  • Fold and burnish the lines and dry fit it around the box.
  • Secure the ends on the back since the front decoration is not large enough to cover the seam.
  • Decorate as you like


I hope this is easy to understand.  If not, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I am definitely not my friend Julie DiMatteo when it comes to 3-D items!!


I hope you have an AWESOME rest of your day!

Birthday Brew

This is my first time using the Bubble Over Bundle.  I really wish I had played with it sooner.  It is perfect for layering.  There are dies for almost every piece of the stamp set, plus a few extras.  I made a simple card with a little twist to the fold.  It is sort of a side/gate fold card.

Please excuse my finger!  The card did not want to stay closed to have it’s picture made.  It is propped up and was misbehaving!    I made the card pretty plain, with the bottle as the focal point.  I had intended to clear emboss the bottle label, but then glued it down before I remembered to do it.  Duh!!

I have the measurements for this off center fold further down in the post.  I used several products, but they are not necessary.  The Ticket Tear Border Punch could easily be a straight piece of card stock.  I added it to mimic the edge of the bottle cap.  That was my thoughts on using the scalloped ovals instead of straight ovals.

If you have any questions about this card, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I love to hear from you!  And I would especially like to talk with you about joining my Stampin’ Up! Team!!  There are great incentives right now.

You Are Awesome

The sentiment on today’s stamp set is what first caught my eye when I was exploring the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  You’re Awesome!!  It is from the set “Epic Celebration”. Who wouldn’t love to receive a card with that sentiment as the focal point?  It was just too perfect to pass up.

You’re Awesome, 147236

This card uses almost the entire stamp set.  I love creating with one stamp set and showing the versatility.  This one would be great for a kid, or musician.  The background is the new Scattered Sequins Dynamic Embossing Folder.  But instead of having the dimension raised up, I turned it over so that it is an impression.

The background splatter is the flicking of the SU Marker created by my friend Julie DiMatteo.  The black border around the sentiment is my method of using the SU Marker to go around the edge. This gives some depth without having to hand cut a matching layer for underneath. HaHa….Juie and I are both getting rich over these ideas 🙂

This unique shaped punch I used is from the masculine suite of products named True Gentleman.  You will definitely want all of these items.  They are wonderful and great for all cards.  The punch is named Tailored Tag Punch.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the post.


During Sale-A-Bration is the best time of year to join as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  There are so many perks to this.  We call it THE ULTIMATE BUNDLE !!  Please contact me and let’s discuss all of the possibilities.

Three Treat 3-D box

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! We have a fun Blog Hop theme today – Wrap it Up! The hop is filled with projects that are perfect for this time of year – everything from gift-packaging ideas to bundling up to stay warm. We are excited to share our creations with you today.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Thank you for joining me in this blog hop!  My wrap it up project is the 3-D gift I made as a gift.  This is my first post on a 3-D project.  I feel like I was channeling my inner Julie DiMatteo when I made it.  HaHa!!!!!  Julie is the 3-D Queen, and a great friend.  Although this project is from another SU Demonstrator’s YouTube video,

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished product.

Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer, Jackie Beers

Year of Cheer DSP, 144640

I used the same DSP as the demonstrator did in her video.  It was just perfect for what I needed.  Any of SU’s thicker DSP would be wonderful.  I changed the inner part to just Thick Whisper White card stock. I have already made a few in different colors as gifts.  They really are easy to make. I cannot wait to give them out.

I have also made templates for the top and the bottom.  I have not braved making a video tutorial yet, but this is one I would love to do.  I found a few tricks that worked for me.  I also used the 1 3/8″ circle punch instead of the Layering Circles Framelits that the other lady used.

Here are the templates I made.  Hopefully they will make sense.  If not, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Shawn de Oliveira at Shawn Stamps. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Fall Acorns

Here in Atlanta it actually feels a little like Fall today.  That is a welcome change for us.  So I have a super cute Fall card to show you.   I have used the much overlooked Count My Blessings stamp set.  At first glance this set may say  Fall, but I believe most of it can be used any time of year.


Stampin' UP! County My Blessings, Jackie Beers, stampinup, County my blessings, jackiebeers

County My Blessings, 144790



My color inspiration was from the acorns and I chose fairly traditional Fall colors.  I did use my Aqua Painter with Pumpkin Pie for the tips of the leaves and then feathered that into the old olive.  The background is Soft Suede ink stamped onto Soft Suede card stock,  I sometimes forget to do the simple things to make our own DSP, so to speak.  It really is quick and easy.

This card is not at all difficult to do, even with the water coloring.  More layers sometimes make it look like more I do believe.

A quick tip for the ribbon accent:  I cut a strip of ribbon and tape each end to the back of my panel.  Then cut a smaller piece and simply tie it around the attached strip.  I get a pretty close to perfect little knot and do not need extra fingers for attempting to tie the ribbon pieces in front and yet keep it tight around the panel.  I never could do that very well!!

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I love hearing from you and I hope you will try a quick project like this one.  The measurements I used are below and the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.  I hope you have a great day!


  • 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 Old Olive folded in half for the base
  • 4 X 5 1/4 Whisper White
  • 3 3/4 X 5 Soft Suede

  • 2 1/2 X 2 5/8 Shimmery White for watercoloring

Coffee With Friends

I don’t even drink coffee and I am in love with this new Coffee Cafe Suite!  Everything in the suite is just wonderful.  And it’s the little things!  The Designer Series Paper is beautiful, the matching framelits are a must have.  I have used the little tag,( I actually think it may be a tea bag!), several times to attach a tag to a little card or gift.  And I know we have had coffee sets from Stampin’ Up! before, but this one is just at at the top of the scale.  So enough of that, here is the card I made.


Coffee Cafe Bundle, 145331


My color inspiration for this card came from this DSP.  As I mentioned in my comments above, everything in this suite of items is wonderful, and the DSP is no exception.  This paper I used is probably my favorite of the DSP pack. And gave me the color combination.

I did this card with my Stamp Club on Sunday and one of the ladies commented that she would have never put these two colors together.  I responded with “I would not have either” it was the DSP’s fault!!

To give some extra color to the open portion of Soft Sky card stock, I used the coffee mark from Timeless Texture stamp set and stamped in Soft Sky Ink. The coffee cup is stamped in Soft Sky with the lid stamped in Pear Pizzazz.  They were cut out with the matching dies in the Framelits set.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso.  The one thing I would change is the little heart stopper in the lid.  I cut it out in Soft Sky card stock and you really cannot see it.  As a redo I would use the Early Espresso or Crumb Cake for that.

The products I used to day are listed at the bottom of this post.  You can click on any item and be taken directly to my online store.
