Holiday Crafting Made Easy with Stampin' Up! Kits

This past weekend I had the pleasure to participate in a local vendor fair and was able to visit with several new stamping friends. In addition to some cute handmade items, I also had some of the Stampin' Up! holiday kits for sale. 

The interest people expressed about these kits reminded me that I don't really share much about the wonderful kits Stampin' Up! offers. They are amazing and offer a quick and easy alternative for holiday crafting. You can even use the extra pieces (which there are usually several) to make your own creations! 

For today's Simply Sweet Stamping Facebook Live, I shared how easy it is to put together 2 of the cards in the Joy of Giving Card Kit.

This all-inclusive kit has everything you need to make 15 cards with beautiful gold foil accents. A 7-piece stamp set, Mossy Meadow Stampin' Spot ink pad, and even adhesive are included!

 But there is SO much more! After making all the cards, I still had several full sheets of die-cuts. And, of course, I couldn't waste the leftover gold foil pieces! I made an additional 13 cards in 4 different designs and STILL have lots of leftover pieces! Whew!

The other awesomely sweet holiday kits...

Christmas Countdown Project Kit

This favorite is once again in this year's catalog for good reason. It's adorably cute and fun to use for little treats or sweet messages. You can also add your own decorations on the back side of each box for other occasions.

This fun kit makes 30 large size gift tags. No tiny writing needed on these for sure! Plenty of room to write a message on these tags.

Just add stamps, ink, and Stampin' Dimensionals to make all the tags in this adorable kit. Don't forget to add the Tag Buffet stamp set for a coordinated look!

Don't need 30 tags? Add some of the tags onto a card base with an accent strip of coordinating Designer Series Paper for a quick and easy Christmas card! 

This fun card design was inspired by my good Stampin' Up! demonstrator friend Heather Guerrero at Little Blue Paper Craft Designs. These cards are so adorable we are making them for this month's Tag Buffet class.

Make It Monday: Witches Treat Cauldron

I'm very blessed to be surrounded by creative people on my Simply Sweet Stampers team. Each has their unique style which helps inspire each other with new ideas. 

This week I'm excited to share with you a spooky fun treat holder using the Celebration Labels dies that my team member Nathan Speer created. He absolutely loves Halloween and is constantly designing amazing projects.

The Witch's Brew Kit Kat candies are perfect for this treat holder! 


To create the cauldron, die cut a Basic Black label with the 2nd largest Celebration Labels die. Cut in half.

Use the 3rd largest Celebration Labels die to cut a Granny Apple Green label and cut in half. Stamp sentiment from Celebration Tidings stamp set on one of the label halves. 

Adhere the label halves to each Basic Black label.

Now to create the box to hold the yummy treats! 

Cut a 5" x 6" piece of Basic Black cardstock. Score short side at 1-3/4" and 3-1/4". Score long side at 1-1/2" and 4-1/2".

Snip up side score lines to form flaps and assemble box.
