I sized it to fit a 1-5/8oz bag of David Sunflower Seeds and then some! It’s a great size for so many things! Think theater candy, sunflower seeds and baseball tickets, candy bars and gift cards… the list goes on!

I had fun choosing different woodgrain patterns from the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper! Here’s a look at the 3 versions I’ve made so far:

Love of Leaves Thinking of You

Today’s “thinking of you” card features the Love of Leaves Bundle paired with the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper!

This is a handmade card made with the Love of Leaves Stampin' Up! product suite and the sentiment says I thought of you today.

I absolutely LOVE the Love of Leaves Bundle! Fall is my favorite season, for one, but I am also in love with the Stitched Leaves Dies and how the stitching is on the negative cutout!

For this card, I first stamped the Shaded Spruce leaf directly onto the card base using the Stamparatus. Then I took a piece of Whisper White that measured 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ (same size as the folded card base) and stamped the leaf onto it. Then I removed 1/8″ from all 4 sides to keep the stamped image in the center of the layer. Now that piece will perfectly lay over the card base with the leaf peaking through.

I added a 1″ strip of Plaid Tidings DSP and tied a Braided Linen Trim bow above it. For the sentiment, I cut a 5/8″ strip of Cherry Cobbler, heat embossed the sentiment in white, and then trimmed each end to size, angle cutting the left side. The finishing touch is a rhinestone on one of the leaves. Easy, peasy!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day!

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Thick Whisper White card base – 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored and folded in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White layer – 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ to start, then cut down to size after stamping (1/8″ removed from all sides)
  • Plaid Tidings layer – 1″ x 4″
  • Cherry Cobbler layer – 5/8″ strip cut down to size after heat embossing

Flowers for Every Season Clutch Tutorial

This is a handmade flowers for every season clutch craft project created by the Paper Pixie using Stampin' Up! supplies.

Today, I’m sharing a tutorial for a paper clutch/handbag that I’m calling a Flowers for Every Season Clutch!

This is a handmade flowers for every season clutch craft project created by the Paper Pixie using Stampin' Up! supplies.

Here’s a pair of them with two different patterns from the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper:

I received a swap several years ago from a team member of mine that I instantly fell in love with and have held onto over the years in the hopes of making one myself! After doing some research, I found out that she followed Bibi Cameron’s tutorial!

I love to “pixiefy” things, so I got to work designing a different version using only one sheet of cardstock (plus a little extra for the handle). My personal handbag inspired this project as well! Here’s a side view:

And a closer look at the front:

It’s a really sturdy clutch and I love the closure – it holds itself together very well! You can use a magnet or Velcro dot to secure it! Here’s how it looks when you lift the flap:

This is a handmade card stamped with the Gorgeous Posies Stampin' Up! stamp set and the sentiment says let your faith be bigger than your fear.

I paired the Gorgeous Posies stamp set with another one of my favorites – Ridiculously Awesome! I am loving the sentiment “Let your faith be bigger than your fear” right now – such a timely sentiment, don’t you think? Both the sentiment and the flower centers have been heat embossed in gold – pictures just cannot do it justice!

There’s a little sneak peek product on this card – Brushed Metallic Cardstock! It will be available for purchase starting August 4 with the launch of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog! The gold brushed metallic cardstock perfectly matches the heat-embossed gold!

I stamped the posies in Pool Party and then fussy-cut a pair of them. I stamped the leaves directly onto the card front in Pear Pizzazz, and then layered the fussy-cut posies over them, popping up one of them with Dimensionals. Then I added a double-loop bow from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack.
