Treat Week 2020 #1 - WITTY-CISMS Gift Bag

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with the first project for my Treat Week 2020!  I am going to be sharing a new treat project with you everyday this week using new products from Stampin' Up!.  Today, I am going to share with you a super cute project using the Witty-cisms stamp set (inspired by Million Dollar Sales Achiever Lisa Fast), the super cute Printed Gusseted Bags, along with the Tags & More Accessories Kit to make a super quick & easy Treat Bag.  Here's a look at my treat bag.


You can make a a ton of these with the everything that I listed above.  I picked the Witty-cisms stamp set for it's fun little play on words and super cute images that could be easily colored.  I `started out by picking my designer series paper and cutting it in half.  Which was super easy since the Brights Paper stack is 6 x6.  I scored both pieces at 1 1/4" and 1/2".  The 1/2" piece was attached to the 1 1/4" section.  When inserted the other 1 1/4" piece becomes the folded over topper.    I then picked one of the coordinating tags and label from the Tags & More Accessory Kit.
Once I had the designer series paper inserted into the gusseted bag and added the candy I folded over the excess of the bag and then closed it with one of the copper clips from the kit and added a tag.  I then stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black ink and colored it.  The Lookin' Sharp image I colored with Granny Apple Green Blends.  For the Thanks Berry Much image I colored it with Granny Apple Green and Calypso Coral stampin' blends.   The dark Calypso Coral marker is very close to Terracotta Tile, so it matches great.

Boo to You Werewolf Gusseted Treat Bag by Rick Adkins

Hello and welcome to my blog; today Halloween is just around the corner and it's time to start making super easy and quick but cute treats; I am going to share with you one that I made and it's super easy to recreate.   Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year and I love to get ready for  them.  I was thinking the other day I may actually get organized and make some treat boxes and bags this year super early and actually fill them with candy.  It helps that I got my September Paper Pumpkin since I know that makes 20 treat boxes, so I was feeling inspired and came up with this little cutie using the Boo To You Stamp Set.  Here's a look at my project.

Tips & Tricks: 

The first thing I did was cut a piece of the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (#150447) down to 
3" x 10".  This designer series paper was roughly scored at 2" & 6 1/2" on my Simply Score Scoring Tool.  So, you can get 4 inserts for your bags from one sheet of /designer series paper.  Which means if you used the entire pack of DSP for this project you would get 48 treat bag inserts.  Once I had the treat insert folded and scored it was time to put it into my 3" x 6" Gusseted Treat Bag (#141704).  Just a little side note if you don't have a scoring tool you can totally just measure it out with a ruler and fold the paper on those measurements, the papers so easy to fold it's not a big deal.  This is the method I prefer.  The 2" part of the designer series paper is the bottom of the bag.  You can place it in and put it on the bottom you may have to do a little work to get the gussets to sit down or you could add a little tape to the bottom.  I found that once it sat for a little while the bottom flaps were just fine.  The top flap folds over; you will want to fill the treat bag and then press in the gusseted sides flip the top part of the Designer Series paper over that and punch two holes.  You are punching through the gusseted bag and the designer series paper.  Make sure that your holes line up with the folded sides of the treat bag and then secure close with your ribbon.
Once I had the Designer Series Paper inserted into the bag I could then fill it with treats.  It was time to dress it up just a little.  So I stamped the werewolf from the Boo To You Stamp Set (#150550) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of whisper white cardstock that I cut out using the largest stitched oval die from the Stitched Shapes Die set.  I then colored him using my Stampin' Blends.  You can find a full list of the colors that I used in the Stampin' Up! Shopping List below.  I then stamped my greeting at the top in Old Olive and added a couple of the Googly Eyes from the Assorted Googly Eyes pack using just a little Liquid Glue.  I then popped the oval up on the front flap with a couple dimensionals.  And, that my friends finished off my cute little treat bag.

OSAT September Blog Hop: welcome to Our Holiday


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the projects I've created for this months One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring products from the Holiday Catalog.  For my projects I created a really cute card and treat holder featuring the Harvest Hello Bundle.  The Harvest Hello bundle features a both an apple and a pumpkin in it and they both match the Apple builder punch.  Here's a look at my projects.
The changing the apples into both candy apples and caramel apples was really really easy.  It was done with the addition of a little more cardstock.   I used Cajun Craze cardstock for the caramel ones and real red for the Candy Apple on the card.  I also used the Shimmery Crystal Effects that's on page 41 of the Holiday Catalog.  This is not the same as Crystal Effects that we used the have a long time ago by the way.  This has small participial of glitter in it; that add extra shine to your projects.  You see the little bit of glitter in this photo here.  For the sticks in the apples I used a bamboo skew and cut them off and attached to the card and to the apples with mini glue dots.
For my treat holder I used the same elements I did on the card with a few additions anyway.  I added a little bit of granny apple green ribbon to the top of the sucker stick that's coming out of the treat holder.  The treat holder actually is made up of all scrap cardstock.  You can see exactly how I made the treat holder in the video below.
