Fall Framed Sampler Home Decor

Hi Stampers. For my craft fairs this weekend, I made several framed samplers to sell.  Today I am sharing one of them with you.

Stampin' Up! 8" x 8" framed sampler home decor for Fall/Autumn by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This framed sampler is 8″ x 8″.  The base is Very Vanilla with Crushed Curry over that and then more Very Vanilla CS.  I used several stamp sets and dies to make this sampler.  Where I did not have coordinating dies – I used my Brother Scan and Cut machine. (I love that machine!) Most of my squares are 2″ x 2″ Crushed Curry with 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ Very Vanilla that I stamped onto with a 1/4″ border between squares.  Two of the Crushed Curry blocks are rectangles – 2″ x 4-1/4″. The 4-1/4″ was made by adding the 2″ plus 2″ plus the 1/4″ gap.  For the word “FALL”  I used my beloved (retired) Large Alphabet Dies and the Come to Gather DSP.

Stampin' Up! 8" x 8" framed sampler home decor for Fall/Autumn by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Figuring out the layout took a little bit of math.  I started with 2″ x 2″ blocks.  Since i wanted 1/4″ borders, I knew I could get three 2″ blocks each way.  The three 2″ blocks added to 6″.  The gap between blocks were two 1/4″ gaps. Which gave me 6-1/2″.  Eight inches minus 6-1/2″ left me with an extra 1-1/2″ – putting half on either side gave me 3/4″ each side.  The diagram may help explain what I am trying to say here.

I used the green squares as placeholders while I arranged the four corner squares. Then I centered the other squares between the corners.  After all my squares were attached I removed the green placeholder squares.

House Gift Bag

Hi Stampers. Christmas is coming and I have shared several cute ideas for small gifts to give people.  Today I’m sharing a gift bag designed like a house, made from some retired Designer Series Paper.  This was a great way to use up retired paper and create a super cute project to make someone smile!

Stampin' Up! designer series paper house gift bag by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I found an idea similar to this on YouTube.  <—- click to see her video. (That crafter did not use Stampin’ Up! supplies.) To make it my own, I tweaked it a bit and here it is!  As I mentioned before, I used retired DSP while I perfected my design, but this could be adorable using the Toile Tidings DSP or the Christmastime Is Here DSP.

Stampin' Up! designer series paper house gift bag by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The base used two 12″ x 12″ pieces of DSP.  Both were cut like this and then glued together by that 1/2″ strip on the right side.

The roof was made using two more pieces of DSP. To add the effect of snow and re-enforce the top where the ribbon goes through, I used some sparkle glimmer paper on top and bottom. The chimney is cut from Basic Gray CS and dry embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder.

Stampin' Up! designer series paper house gift bag by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The front of the house is made of just DSP cut to look like a door and windows with a Garden Green wreath on the door.  The cute little Christmas bulbs I found locally, but are similar to these on Amazon. Under the house is a piece of chip board (like the backing from a pack of foil sheets or glimmer paper) covered in Whisper White CS to add some stability to the bottom of the bag.

This is how the inside of the bag looks after it’s all finished.  How cute is that?!?!

Post-It Note Holder Set

Hi Stampers. As you are reading this, I am on my way to Las Vegas for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event.  I am so excited to be able to my hands on the new 2020 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure!  These won’t be available to customers til January.  If you are anxious to see and order new product you can always join my team – I welcome hobby demos!  Today’s blog post features a post it note holder with matching pen.  I have featured this before and it’s been one of my most popular YouTube videos.

I recently made an instructional video for this again via Facebook Live.  You can see that video by CLICKING HERE.

I covered the Mossy Meadow cardstock using Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. This Designer Series Paper is soooo pretty!

I used Tear & Tape Adhesive on the back of the post it note pad to adhere it to the inside.  Our Tear & Tape Adhesive is a wonderful – strong – adhesive.  I use it anytime something with be handled alot, such as boxes and 3D items.

I used a sticky back velcro dot as a closure. You can view them on my affiliate link HERE.

The Everyday Label Punch is great for a wide array of sentiments.  I chose to use a friend sentiment from the Love What You Do stamp set.

For the pen, I like to use the Pentel R.S.V.P. Ballpoint pen.  They are so easy to open and insert the paper into!  A small strip (3-1/2″ x 3/4″) of the DSP rolled up using the bone folder fits perfectly!

I’m thrilled with how this one came out.  It’s such a great gift, doesn’t cost much and is easy to make!

Holly Jolly Christmas Wood Ornament

Hi Stampers. I have such a cute project for you today!  Did you know that you can stamp on wood?  You can!  Check out this super cute Christmas Ornament I made by using the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set to stamp on this wood round / wood slice.  You can get the wood slices on Amazon by clicking HERE.

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Christmas Wood Christmas Ornament colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

The Santa from Holly Jolly Christmas was stamped onto this wood round using Memento Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Christmas Wood Christmas Ornament colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Make note of the colors used in the supply list below.  The Stampin’ Blends appear darker on wood than they do on paper, so I used almost all “light” versions of the markers.  The white is colored in using the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker. (Careful, the wood can be harsh on the tip of your marker).

Stampin' Up! Holly Jolly Christmas Wood Christmas Ornament colored with Stampin' Blends by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

After doing the stamping and coloring, I covered the slice with clear versamark ink and sprinkled with clear stampin’ emboss powder and melted with the heat tool.

To finish it off, I threaded the Real Red Curly ribbon through the hole and tied it twice.  Once near the top of wood round and once at the top making the loop to hang it on the tree.  I then used the Shaded Spruce and Gold ribbon to make a bow at the top of the wood round.  Didn’t it come out cute!?!? I can’t wait to see if they sell well at my next craft fair. You should give it a try! I’d love to see what you create!

Here is a video of a Facebook Live I did showing how to make this cute creation:

Crafting Forever Post-It Note Holder

Hi Stampers. Today I am happy to share with you this create idea to hold Post It notes made by one of my team members – Melinda Matthews.  Melinda is one of the sweetest ladies I know.  She is always making little gifts like this to give to people she cares about.  I was lucky enough to be the recipient of one of her little gifts last time she came to stamp with me.

Post-It note holder by Melinda Matthews Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator for Queen B Creations

She personalized this post-it note holder for me using the Crafting Forever stamp set and the Follow Your Art Dies.

Post-It note holder by Melinda Matthews Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator for Queen B Creations

For the focal point, she stamped the sentiment and then cut it out with the layering circles dies.  The yellow scalloped circle was also made using the layering circles dies.  To accent that she cut a button using the Arts & Crafts Dies and tied a small bow using the linen thread.

The Arts & Crafts Dies are awesome – they cut and emboss at the same time!  How cool is that?!?!

Post-It note holder by Melinda Matthews Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator for Queen B Creations

This simple holder opens up to reveal a pad of post-it notes. This will come in very handy and can easily be stored in my purse or car for when I need to take a note. (The older I get, the more I need to make notes… LOL).

It Starts With Art Framed Sampler

Hi Stampers.  A few months ago I offered a class to make this adorable framed sampler.  I just love how it came out and hung it on the wall in my studio for all who enter to enjoy.  Today I’m sharing it with you, my blog followers!

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art Framed Sampler by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This sampler fits in an 8″ x 8″ shadow box frame.  The background is a fairly simple piece of Designer Series Paper.  I used the Crafting Forever and It Starts With Art stamp sets.  I also had a retired single stamp of the Stampin’ Up! statement of the heart. Most of the stamping wasThis is  done using Momento Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art Framed Sampler by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

While some images are stamped directly onto the Whisper White squares, some were stamped onto scraps of Whisper White CS and cut out with the coordinating dies or fussy cut with paper snips (or the Brother Scan n Cut).

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art Framed Sampler by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used an assortment of pretty colored cardstocks – Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Purple Posey, Pineapple Punch and Balmy Blue.  The “crafting forever – housework whenever” sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo ink and the “Do something creative everyday” is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink.

This is a closeup of the Stampin’ Up! statement of the heart and those gorgeous Glitter Enamel Dots – they match my logo, don’t  you think?!?

It was a little complicated to try to get photos of this sampler actually IN the frame due to the reflection on the glass.  But, here it is…
