Stampin' Up Decorative Window Box with the Halloween "Best of " Stamp Set

The below Article was posted yesterday (August 7th) on the stampin' up blog; it was written by Stampin' Up concept artist, Christina N - I LOVE the boxes she made!

Give the Littles Something Sweet!

Every year at Halloween I love to give all of my nieces and nephews a treat, and it’s always wrapped up especially for them. Since the August “Best of” stamp set is “Best of Halloween,” it’s the perfect opportunity for me to get started early this year.

I love that there are three main images, a border, and a greeting in the stamp set. Since the main images are about the same size, it was easy to come up with a design that worked for all of them.   I used the new Decorative Window Gift Boxes since they are small and all of my nieces and nephews are still very little.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween!

2013 Holiday Catalog Snowflake Framelits Video, Expressions Thinlets Video, and Envelope Framelits Video - so much GREAT stuff!!

The Festive Flurry Framelits video below shows you how to assemble the great snowflake tags shown here.  Carrie Cudney at Stampin' Up gives you a great tip on how to make the snowflake have dimension; you'll love watching the video!

Festive Flurry Framelits, Item # 132193 $24.95 or buy them
as part of a Bundle with the Festive Flurry Stamp Set
(wood) Item # 133284 $54.95
(clear) Item # 133285 $46.95

Here's a Stampin' Up Video showing how easy it is to use the Expressions Thinlets Dies.  I tried using them before watching this video and I wish I hadn't!  The wax paper and tapping are great ideas that I didn't try.  But I can tell you that the die cut words are beautiful and graceful; you'll really love them!

Expressions Thinlets Dies  Item # 132171    $24.95

And finally, below is a video showing you how to use the new Envelope Liner Framelits.  These framelits were designed to work with Stampin' Up's medium envelope, note card envelope, and small 3x3 envelop.  You'll notice that the liner doesn't go all the way to the top of the envelope, that's because they were designed to not cover up the "lick strip" to seal the envelope.  I can't remember what that strip is really called!

Envelope Liner Framelits   Item # 132172    $26.95

Don't forget to click over to my blog to watch the videos if you're an email subscriber.  Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
