Good Afternoon and welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls Blog Tour! This week we are sharing projects using the gorgeous Mini Pizza Boxes
Mini Pizza Boxes
Have you seen these Mini Pizza Boxes in the Holiday Catalogue? Oh my gosh they are so cute and so easy to put together!
You can dress them up as much or as little as you’d like! Colour them with your brayer or Spritzers , add a belly band to dress it up or decorate with a square panel on top or simply just tie a ribbon around and add a tag. The ideas are unlimited!
You can use them for gifting all sorts of things – cookies, candles, gift cards, jewelry – the list goes on! The boxes have a coating inside so they are food safe – you could even make a cookie that looks like a pizza and pop that inside!
Here’s one we made at a recent workshop and also made in Sundays Merry Little Labels class …
This little box was so fun to make and while it has lots of elements to it with the belly band, snowflakes, ribbon, bauble and tag it’s still quite easy to do! It’s just a matter of layering the pieces. It will make a great box for someone’s Christmas Gift and using the Belly Band means they wont need to rip it all open!
Here’s the same box with the coordinating card …
Now let’s head over and see what the other Latte Girls have created for you today ..
Hello and Welcome to another Merry Monday! Today I have a lovely little gift idea for you using the Year of Cheer Suite.
Year of Cheer Suite
This is one of our sweet A6 Acetate Boxes I’ve embellished to create a sweet gift box with some cards in it for a gift.
This gift box is super quick and easy and is done by running it through your Big Shot with the Wonderland Embossing Folder. Then to dress it up I’ve simply tied the gorgeous new Metallic Edge Ribbon around it.
This gift box will hold 4 cards and envelopes so it makes the perfect gift!
This card is quick and easy and just uses a few circles pieces of Champagne Foil, Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder and some Shimmery White Cardstock.
This card is fun and sparkly and just what you need for Christmas! The sentiment comes from the Add a Little Glitz stamp set and goes so well with the gorgeous foil paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper pack and a gold foil snowflake. I’ve also used the wonderful Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape.
I love this card! I’ve embossed the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder onto Champagne Foil cardstock then layered with vellum, specialty Year of Cheer Designer Series paper and Gold Foil cardstock.
The fourth card in my boxed set is this Joy card I shared previously. How sweet is that paper from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series paper pack?
Maybe you’d like to dress up your gift box a little differently to the one above?
Simply use a strip of the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper to make a belly band and tie the Metallic Edge Ribbon around and add some Gold Mini Sequin trim and you are done!
How about a special bundled price for the products you’ll need to make this set?

Good Afternoon! It’s time for another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls and this week the theme is Christmas Trees
The thing about Christmas is we all celebrate it different ways yet we all have a Christmas Tree and sometimes we dont all have Christmas Stamps but most of us will have a stamp set that includes a tree image in it. So I thought I’d use a regular stamp set to do a Christmas Tree card …
My card today uses the super versatile Vertical Greetings Stamp Set. I love this little tree and it really wasnt hard to turn it into a Christmas Tree with the help of In Color Glitter Acrylic Shapes and the Iridescent Sequin Assortment. Those little sequins really make that tree sparkle!
Stampin’ Up! On Stage
Today is the day we left for our Road Trip and are hopefully are settling into our Apartment in Melbourne as this post goes online. I will be checking the blog and email for messages over the next week but not as often as I would when I’m home. So if you do need to ask anything or need me for anything else please email me here and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. You could also text me on my mobile if it’s important.
I will be back late on 15th November so back working at my craft desk from the 16th November.
Now lets head over and see what Libby and Sandie have made for us this week …
Good Morning and welcome to another Merry Monday! Today I have two super quick and easy note cards using the Merry Mistletoe Stamp Set
This is a super quick and super easy card done using your Stampin’ Write markers to colour your stamp so you only have to stamp it once!
I’ve then used a couple of left over strips from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper Pack to pop behind my Stitched Oval. This would make a great card for Christmas as it’s so quick and easy to put together.
More leftover strips for the background on this card. It’s a great way to use up all those cut-offs that we all seem to have!
This one has the tree stamped off 2 times before stamping behind the Christmas Wishes Sentiment. I’ve used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out the sentiment and the scalloped circle layer. Then a length of ribbon folded like a bow behind the sentiment panel gives this card more depth.
The Merry Mistletoe set is such a lovely set and so versatile for many of your Christmas Projects and with 9 stamps in the set they work out at less than $3.70 per stamp!
I know you’ll love creating projects with this stamp set too!
Now I have a special deal for you today …
Purchase the Merry Mistletoe Stamp Set & the Be Merry Designer Series Paper Pack and you’ll receive a pack of Notecards (valued over $10) for free!
this deal is good till Monday 13th November – so go grab it now!
Good Afternoon! I hope you had a lovely weekend and having wonderful Monday! It’s time for another Merry Monday and I’ve got a sweet card using the At Home with You Stamp Set.
At Home with You
At Home with You Stamp Set is such a gorgeous stamp set and can be used for many different occasions. You can also get this in a Bundle with the At Home Framelits and save yourself 10% – gotta love that!
This stamp set has so many stamps – 25 actually – and lots of different sentiments to cover Christmas, New Home, Happy Birthday, Surprise, Congrats, thanks for the Hospitality and even has a welcome mat!
The Merry Monday card I wanted to share today is a Christmas Card using the gorgeous little Box Wreath Embellishments …
The door was ‘painted’ using the wonderful new Stampin’ Blends Markers which will be available to purchase on 1st November!
I love the new Stampin’ Blends! They are so easy to colour with and you can do such varied colouring from full depth colours to the light ones like I’ve done on the door.
Colour your Rhinestones!
I even used my Stampin’ Blends to colour my little Christmas Tree, the Lantern and the Rhinestones on the Wreath!
With the new Stampin’ Blends you can now have pearls or rhinestones in any colour to coordinate with your projects! How cool is that?
I do hope you liked today’s Merry Monday card and dont forget my weekly Facebook Live Session tomorrow at 11am on my Stamp A Latte Facebook Page – I may be sharing some more Stampin’ Blends tips
Due to my being unwell on the weekend I’ve re-scheduled my Stampin’ Blends class to Sunday 5th November at 2pm – click here to RSVP
Welll … this has been a project I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I decided this past week to get stuck in and get these pages for the Love Today Planner designed. I am just a wee bit excited to share them with you today!
Love Today Planner
Now I will admit I’ve had this planner since it was released in June and I have used it somewhat but not to it’s potential! I mean you can use it like a diary or your can use it like a diary, journal, memory book all in one! Then add some extra pages designed specifically for organisation, goal setting and direct selling and well it’s just become your life line!
The beauty of this planner is that it can be what ever you want it to be. You dont have to wait till January to start it either! As the pages come undated you can start it whenever you wish and just keep revolving the months – too easy!
You can even dress up your pages and stamp in it with our Classic Dye Inks and they wont bleed through the page! Here’s what I’ve done for October …
How fun is that planner now? I even started on dressing up November! As we have the Blends starting November 1st I added strips of Just Add Color Specialty DSP and I’ll colour bits of it during the month with my new Stampin Blends …
Now I mentioned I’ve been busy creating some extra pages. Originally it was going to be like 4 or 5 pages and I think at last count I’m up to 18 pages! Each time I sit and design a page another one pops into my head! I have them all available for you today and I even have a way you can get your pages for free!
Printable Planner Pages ..
Now I’ve designed some pages for general everyday Planner users.
I know these will come in super handy for personal use as well as those using their planner for their business or work. Here’s a close up of a couple of pages for you …
Being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I’ve made quite a few specific to my business
Now since taking this photo I’ve added more sheets which will be included in your pack. I know these sheets are specific for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators but they could be easily used in other businesses.
If you love the look of these and one (or two) of my pages could be easily adjusted to suit your Direct Selling Business please be sure to contact me and let me know what changes would work for you. I’m happy to look into doing that for you depending on how many changes would be required.
Now I did also sit down and make a video to share with you how I’ll be using it from now and a quick look at the pages. I would love for you to take a look and share any feedback you have or even ideas for more sheets.
I’m planning to do an updated video each month which wont be as long as this one today. My apologies for that but there was just so much I wanted to tell you and share with you – mind you the original video was twice as long as this one!
I do hope you like what I’ve done and here’s how you can get your hands on the printable pages …
All files are in pdf format and all you need to do is save them then print them to your hearts content. I’ve even placed a box around the sheet for you so you know where to cut so it fits perfectly in your planner!
Love Today Perfect for Christmas …
The Love Today Planner will make the perfect Christmas gift for anyone with a schedule and who doesn’t have one of those? Planners are really big now and yours would be the favourite present this year for sure when you give the Love Today Planner!
Remember, the pages aren’t dated so they’ll be perfect for any year! You can also just by the refill kits as well so no need to buy the full planner each year!
I hope you enjoy my new Planner Sheets and I’m looking forward to bringing you the next instalment in November!
Good Afternoon and welcome to another “Merry Monday”. This week I’m using the Watercolor Christmas Stamp set.
Watercolor Christmas for Merry Monday
Recently, at a party, I demonstrated this stamp set and the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit. I was asked why you’d need that particular stamp set if they had other Christmas stamps they could use with it so I had to make a card to show why you need the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set.
Dont you love how this card came out? It’s even all embossed using the Classic Ink Pads which means your embossing can be any colour we have an ink pad for!
To heat emboss with dye inks you simply ink up your stamp in Versamark and then immediately ink in your chosen Classic Ink Colour – for this card I used Tranquil Tide. Then sprinkle with clear embossing powder, shake off excess and heat till it’s all melted. It works like a treat!
I then just watercoloured my trees with the Tranquil Tide Ink pad and my Aqua Painter. The metallic edge ribbon finishes off these cards beautifully.
So dont overlook the Watercolor Christmas stamp set as you can make some really lovely cards with it – not just for the kit!
Hello and welcome 🙂 Today I have a sweet project for you using the Merry Little Labels Bundle and the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper pack.
Merry Little Labels Tags …
These tags really were heaps of fun to create and all you need is the Merry Little Tags Bundle, Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper, a couple of ink pads and a couple of markers!
Having the punch in the Bundle make these tags quick and easy and while I was making the tags I thought how easy it would be to turn the tags into cards!
Merry Little Labels Cards
I converted two of my tags into cards using the gorgeous Note Cards from Stampin’ Up!
I love this little tag stamp with the trees and the deer. Now I know Christmas in Australia does not include snow but that stamp is just so pretty! When choosing the patterned paper for this one I opted for the tree design and it’s like a continuation of the trees in the image.
I am loving this one! I love the wreath behind the tag! Those wreaths are so much fun as they have wire in them so they are easy to manipulate and shape to whatever you want them to be!
These were so quick and fun I made them in this week’s Project Video …
I do hope you enjoy the video – I know it goes for over 10 minutes but I show you how to create a couple of tags and the cards plus I’ve included a couple of stamping tips for you!
If you like the look of these little tags and cards why not join me on 5th November for my Merry Little Labels class? We’ll start at 2pm and have some fun created some gorgeous tags and cards for Christmas! Click the button below to register!
