Shaker Lid Gift Box Video Tutorial with Stampin' Up Products

Shaker Lid Gift Box Video Tutorial with Stampin' Up Products


We are hosting a small party for New Year this year. 

I'm not sure exactly how sophisticated it is going to be with 8 children under 6 years old in attendance but if it was to be a sophisticated then a little box like this would make the perfect favour don't you think?

I love the shaker aspect of the lid and the window sheet gives you a little sneak peak of the contents.


Of course I have a video if you would like to see how I made it, click HERE for a closer look.

Team Congratulations Card using Moroccan Nights by Stampin' Up


Today I want to share with you all a gorgeous card I made recently for one of my love team members but firstly I have a confession - I made a mistake in my last blog post - the fabulous Online Extravaganza didn't end yesterday (as I said), it actually ends today - so one more day to shop the sale!!

Click HERE to start shopping now.




Click HERE to see the full list of everything on sale!

Anyway - today's card is one that I made for Jodie, a lovely member of my Stampin' Up team who recently achieved her first promotion. I was so pleased to be sending out this card along with a little gift and the stamp set of the her choice - she chose Numbers for You.



Jodie is a hobby demo - she loves crafting and signed up with Stampin' Up purely to take advantage of the 20% discount on all the lovely things she was coverting.

The great news for Jodie is that now she has promoted, she now earns a 25% net discount - or as some people like to think of it - she can now buy an extra 5% for no extra cost!

I made a card and a matching gift tag to decorate a glassine bag - simple effective packaging using that gorgeous large medallion from Moroccan Nights. 

The very appropriate sentiment is from the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set. I love that font.

Well done Jodie - I hope you enjoy your new discount - it is my pleasure to have you in my team.




If your wish list is as HUGE as the discount list, remember you can get £130 of products for just £99 including shipping by joining Stampin' Up as demonstrator. There is absolutely no obligation to sell and you will earn a minimum 20% net discount on all future orders.

Wedge shaped gift box using Balloon Builder Stamp Set from Stampin' Up

Wedge shaped gift box using Balloon Builder Stamp Set from Stampin' Up



Firstly, I want to say that today's video isn't the greatest, I mess the stamping up quite badly but in a week when the entire house has fallen one after the other like dominos to a nasty sickness bug - then needs must!

Anyway - making the best of it, what do you think of the colour combinations I've used for today's project? They are bit crazy aren't they - but I think they just about work. Leave me a comment if you like them.

I've used Watermelon Wonder with Mint Macaron and Peek-a-boo Peach with Dapper Denim.


The balloons are all handstamped using the Balloon Builder stamp and the same colour ink as the card stock - I think it looks really effective, subtle but striking.

If you'd like to see how the bag is made, and just how badly I mess up the stamping(!) click HERE to view my video.

If you would like to order any Stampin' Up products click HERE and head over to my online store or get in touch directly, it would be my pleasure and honour to help.

Don't forget the wondeful Online Extravaganza is running until Sunday with some fantastic bargains.

Handmade Gift Box for two Jam Jars using Yummy Little Christmas by Stampin' Up - Video Tutorial.

Handmade Gift Box for two Jam Jars using Yummy Little Christmas by Stampin' Up - Video Tutorial.


If you are long term subscriber, you will know that I love to make things in the kitchen that can be given as gifts over the Christmas period.

Each year I always make up batches of chutneys, pickles and relishes. This year I am a little behind with the actual cooking - I have a small baby and an energetic 4 year old (who actually pops up at the end of the video today!) - but this box design has been swimming around in my head for a while and I am sure there are some people that are a little more organised than me!



Additionally, the stamp set I use in this video features in this week's Online Extravaganza - with 20% off!

Make sure you head over there to check out the huge number of bargains available until Sunday only.


Anyway, back to today's project, you can view my video tutorial HERE.



I hope you enjoy it - it is a little disjointed, I was honestly a lot more organised than I come across!

Gift Tag set using Tin of Tags and Stitched Shape Framelits from Stampin' Up

Gift Tag set using Tin of Tags and Stitched Shape Framelits from Stampin' Up


I wanted to mix up the colours from the traditional Christmas reds and greens today so have gone for Smoky Slate and Marina mist to make this lovely little gift tag set. If like me, you're still making stock for Christmas Markets, hopefully these will be a popular seller.


The gift wallet holds 6 layered gift tags. I've used the Layering Circle framelit dies which work beautifully with the new Stitched Shapes framelit dies.

Now a little word of warning about the Stitched Shapes framelits - as you know SU launched these early as they are so gorgeous. Well, it turns out everybody thinks they are gorgeous and we have sold several months worth of stock in just a few weeks!!!

Stampin' Up therefore need some time to replenish their supplies so after Monday 21st November it will not be possible to order these dies for a unknown period.

We're not sure how long it will be but it could be a while before they can be ordered again. If you want to get your hands on these dies, I would recommend you order them before Monday or you could be in for a long wait.


Anyway - back to todays project. The sentiments are stamped using my ever favourite set, Tin of Tags. I just can not get enough of this set, it is so versatile and lots of the sentiments will work all year around!

I love it even more at the moment as there is a fantastic 25% off until the end of the month. 


I hope you like this project and of course, I had to put a little video together for you showing how they are made.

1st Anniversary Celebration with Number of Years by Stampin' Up



One of my lovely Stampin' Up team members celebrates one year as demonstrator this month and of course I had to send her a little something to celebrate. 

Number of Years and the matching Large Numbers framelits made for the perfect card and gift. 

My colour combination is Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron - I would never have thought these would go so well together - but they really do!

Congratulations on your anniversary Sim - so pleased you choose to join my team.

Oh! Christmas Tea - Fun Tea Bag with Stampin' Up Products



I am a big tea drinker, I just love curling up with a bucket sized mug of the stuff, or even better, a whole pot, just for me! Today's project is right up my street.

I just think this is a really fun idea that will inject a can't wait to start serving tea to friends like this next month.

I saw a company advertising sets like this for sale - and of course I knew I would be able to make my own version.


I use quite a few products on this project but my favourite is the brand new Stitched Shape Framelit Dies I have used for the square on the belly band.

These only launched on 1st November and ever since they arrived, I haven't stopped using them! They aren't in the catalogue - yet! You have to be in the know to be able to buy them!
They will be in the next Annual Catalogue, which launches in June, but Stampin' Up thought they were so fab they have released them early. I am so glad they did - expect to see them featured in lots of new videos coming up!


Of course, I have a YouTube video of the project for you.

Click HERE to watch it.

You can shop 24/7 at my online shop HERE, or email me at craftycarolinecreates@gmail.com and I would be delighted to help.

Star of Light Flip Lid Box, Video Tutorial, October Customer Thank You Gift

Star of Light Flip Lid Box, Video Tutorial, October Customer Thank You Gift



I really do appreciate every single customer that chooses to order Stampin' Up products from me. 

As a little way of showing my appeciation, I send out a little thank you gift each month and always make some special packaging. 

This month I came up with this box to house a roll of washi tape which I sent to each customer along with the Merry Medley stamp set.


I've used my favourite Star of Light stamp set here but I don't think it looks overly Christmassy because of the colours used, Rich Razzleberry and Mint Macaron. What do you think? Christmas or not Christmas?


If you would like a closer look at the box, and to see exactly how it is made, click HERE to view my YouTube video.

If you would like to recieve a gift like this through the post next week, just place a Stampin' Up order selecting me as your demonstrator. 

You can shop 24/7 at my online shop HERE, or email me at craftycarolinecreates@gmail.com and I would be delighted to help.

BonBon Style Sweetie Wrapper with the Envelope Punch Board - OnStage Swaps

BonBon Style Sweetie Wrapper with the Envelope Punch Board - OnStage Swaps


Yesterday I shared with you all of the swaps I was lucky enough to recieve at On-Stage last weekend - read all about it HERE.

Today, I am sharing with you the project I made as my swap.


Each one holds a single Lindor by Lindt chocolate.

My idea was to make a wrapper for the chocolate that mimics the shape of the chocolate inside. They seemed to go down very well at On-Stage and I hope you like them too.

I've made mine using the Moroccan DSP which is really gorgeous. The sentiment is from a very special set, I Stamped This, it isn't shown in the catalogue but has so many great sentiments.



As you can see I made a lot - not quite as many as I had hoped though as a few of the chocolates needed to be 'tested' during the manufacturing process!


If you recieved one of these swaps from me, I really hope you liked it.

If you'd like to see how they are made, and maybe make a version of your own, click HERE to watch my YouTube tutorial.
