If you’ve got a new baby in the family, or a friend has had a baby, then you really should make this mini scrapbook for them. This mini scrapbook is a great little keepsake for the baby’s first year. There is room for a picture of the baby for each of its first twelve months, along with two pockets to put little keepsakes in. This scrapbook shows a new way to use the Project Life Baby Girl Card Collection and Hello Baby Accessory Pack. It also features the Hello Baby Stamp Set. It can be customized for a baby boy by using the Project Life Baby Boy Card Collection instead. This would also make a great Project Life Class.

Do you love to sew and to do paper crafts? If so, then this is the project for you! In this project you’ll sew a gift box and some great cards to go in it! Give the set as a gift (tag instructions included too!), to a crafty friend who will appreciate the time and creativity that you’ve put into this fun gift!
It’s 10 a.m. on a snow day. The snow is piling up outside and doesn’t look like it’s going to stop, and then you hear those three dreaded words – “Mom, I’m bored.” Keep your children entertained with this Snow Day Fun set. Use the Stampin’ Up! Snow Place bundle to create mix and match elements that will cling to the scenic background board. It’s simple enough for older children to create for younger siblings or neighbors, and smaller children will enjoy mixing the pieces to create cute snow scenes. Best of all, it’s durable enough to stand up to hours of use by tiny fingers. If you don’t have children, you can create this project for a friend who does and make a young child’s day. Instructions for a storage/gift box and a coordinating card are included. This would make a fun class for moms so they’ll be ready for that first snow day!
This project includes two cards and two gift packaging ideas that are quick and easy…and no bones about it…they’re super cute, too! The No Bones About It Stamp Set is featured and provides the dinosaur theme for each project…and Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper provides fresh, fun colors and patterns. Those colors and patterns also bring the versatility that allows you to create for either the special little boy or girl in your life! For a final finishing touch the matching envelopes are a cinch using the Envelope Punch Board.
Everyone needs some pretty colors and flowers to get them through the cold winters, and this card set would definitely cheer them up! The cards are stored in a cute little handbag with pretty Antique Brads on the handles. The handbag can hold eight cards and envelopes. This tutorial includes two card designs made with the Remarkable You Stamp Set, and four of each design can be made to fill up the handbag. This would make a perfect gift, and a great class project.
Have you ever wanted to try your hand at watercoloring but thought you couldn’t do it? Here is your chance to give it a try using the masculine set The Wilderness Awaits and an Aqua Painter. The step-by-step instructions will show you how to make a wonderful set of four masculine cards with envelopes that fit right in the box that showcases your water colored creations that you can give away as a gift or keep for yourself.
This gift set is a mini spa day packaged in a coordinated kit. This set includes a nail file holder, a nail polish caddy, and chocolates that all fit inside a unique gift bag. There is also a matching gift card holder to add a little something extra. This spa day kit is perfect for that special person who deserves an indulgent gift. There is also a bonus recipe for a sugar scrub to add as an optional gift!
Need a fantastic, useful, and attractive gift for someone special? You will enjoy making this project, and the recipient will cherish it! Create six pockets to hold an assortment of cards, a box to hold the pockets, and this tutorial also includes instructions for six assorted—coordinating—greeting cards to start filling the pockets. Once you give this box of cards to a special someone, don’t forget to replenish the cards throughout the year on holidays, special occasions, or just because. This ensemble would be great for a stamp camp.
This sweet and sparkly little gift set is sure to please! Learn how to quickly, and elegantly, turn a battery-operated tea light into an everlasting décor piece. Then you’ll learn how to make the coordinating gift box that is the perfect custom size to fit the three tea lights. And the simple, but sweet card will make this the perfect hostess gift for those holiday drop-ins!
Punch art is a fun way to create images that you may not have stamps for, as well a great way to get extra mileage out of your punches. In this project we will create punch art images for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s Eve. Each of these images is part of a cute tag, and all of the tags fit nicely in a decorative box. Includes a matching card for gift giving. These fun punch art designs are great for a club or a class, or just a fun winter afternoon of crafting.
