CPC Bonus Project Tag a Bag Mini Album & Card

What is a CPC Bonus Project?  This project is available to you as a bonus when you do one of the following:

Subscribing to Craft Project Central for two or more months in a row
putting the Craft Project Central badge on your blog, 
refer a friend and when they subscribe, let Craft Project Central know.

Here's the Bonus project for the month of December designed by Laurie.

Tag A Bag Mini Album & Card

This project was made using the Tag a Bag Bundle.  This mini album is perfect for adding photos from just about any occasion, birthdays, vacations, retirement, etc.  Included are ten pages you can add photos, plus three decorated panels that tuck into the open pages.  You can journal or add more pictures to the panels, the possibilities are endless!  Pair this darling album up with a coordinating greeting card, and it makes the perfect gift!



Sneak Peek Blessed Easter

Just a few more sleeps until you too can order from the Occasions catalog!  Today's card is another sneak peek, Blessed Easter.  Like the Vivid Vases stamp it is a sinlge stamp in the Occasions catalog.  I cut away the words from this stamp and also the Vivid Vases stamp.   Now instead of being a single stamp I have an image and a sentiment!

Blessed Easter Modern Medley DSP

Stamps: Blessed Easter
Ink: Stazon. Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzzaz
Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Modern Medley
Big Shot: Window Frames Collection framelits
Extras: Aqua Painter, Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon 

The Window Frames framelits are fun to layer.  I previously posted  sizes of paper to use with the Window Frames framelits here. 

Hope you are enjoying the last few days of 2013! 

CPC Cork Coaster Gift Set

When I saw the project Angie designed  for Craft Project Central  it made me smile!  What a perfect choice to use the Perfect Blend stamp set to make coasters!

Cork Coaster Gift Set

Seriously, it makes me want to have another coffee get together just so I can make these coasters!  In this tutorial you will learn how to make these great coasters,  a pretty gift box for the coasters and a fun card.  All you need to do is subscribe to the month of December and you will receive this tutorial and 9 others!

Sneak Peek Vivid Vases

I hope your Christmas was a special one!  Today I have another sneak peek from the Occasions Catalog that will be debuting on January 3.   

Vivid Vases easel card closed

Stamps: Vivid Vases (Occasions Catalog), Papillon Potpourri
Ink: Black Stazon, So Saffron, Pear Pizzaz, Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral
Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla, Retro Fresh DSP
Punches: Bitty Butterfly
Extras: Coastal Cabana 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim,  Dazzling Details

I'm totally loving this new Retro Fresh  Designer Series paper. The patterns are fun and the color combination is so well, fresh!  I paper pieced the vases with the DSP and I think they look fabulous.  There isn't a  punch or die for the vases but the shapes are very simple so it is easy.

Vivid Vases easel card open

Guess what?  It's another easel card!  I just enjoy making these and love a little fun surprise.  I hope you have received your Occasions Catalog.  If you have not and do not already have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator feel free to contact me and I will send you a catalog.  I would love to be your demonstrator.

CPC New Years Memories Set

Yes, I am still chipping away at my list of things I want to get done.  How about you?  Here's a fun project designed by Michelle for Craft Project Central.  This is going on my list of projects I want to make after Christmas.  

New Years Memories Set

Included in this project is an envelope mini-book, coordinating card and a matching pocket to hold your pens.  I think I will have to make an extra to give away as a gift.

Best of Snow Gift of Chocolate

Are you in total Christmas panic mode?  I have spent the last few days head down just working through my list.  I still have one big project that needs to be finished but I am feeling pretty happy with where I am, especially  when I think about what my list looked like just 3 days ago.  

Here's a quick little gift that you can mass produce in  no time at all.

Best of Snow box
Here's a link to a tutorial I did to show you how I made the box.    The only difference in the measurements is I made the height of the box a little shorter-3-1/2" vs 4".  This little box holds 4 Ghiradellis chocolates just perfectly.  

I need to get back to my project and as soon as I am done  I will be back with lots of fun things to share!  In the meantime check out the Weekly Deal and the Clearance Rack Blitz!

CPC Winter Sampler

Today I am excited to share with you the project I designed for Craft Project Central.

Winter Sampler

This winter sampler of snowflakes, snowmen and snowy hills will decorate your home all winter long.  There's lots of glitter and glitz to brighten up the darkest days. Make one for a friend and one for you to enjoy.  You’ll want to make several of these to give away as gifts!
