Can you believe this is my last Merry Christmas Monday project? This week I have a money (cash, check, money order, etc) holder. If you need one, this one is very easy to make.

I made two different styles. One of them has a belly band and the other one I put Velcro on it to help keep it closed. The pictures to show you how to make this project will be of the above money holder, without the belly band.

To make this project you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Real Red or Evening Evergreen

  • cut at 7" x 8 1/4" 
  • score on the 8 1/4" side at 2 1/4" and 5 1/4"

Belly Band (I used Real Red)

  • cut at 1 1/2" x 6 1/2"

Evening Evergreen (for the sentiment)

  • cut at 2" 3 1/4"

Basic White

  • cut at 1 3/8" x 2 5/8"

Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper

Burnish on score lines and add one of the 2" x 6 3/4" pieces of Painted Christmas designer series paper to the top section. This paper is retiring on January 3rd and has low inventory. If you want it, I would order it right away. Once it is gone, it is gone for good. I rounded the corners of the top section of the cardstock and the designer series paper with the Detailed Trio punch. Add Tear and Tape on the bottom section, making sure it is on the edge so that there is enough room for the money.

Do not adhere this section yet. I used my 1 3/4" circle punch, you can use the Layering Circle dies, to punch a small section of the circle in the middle. This will help make it easier to open the pocket. Now, you can adhere this section together.

The arrows are where I put the Velcro circles. If you are doing the belly band, wrap it around the holder and adhere the ends together with Tear and Tape.

Cut out the rectangle for the sentiment with the Scalloped Contours dies in Evening Evergreen cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas To Remember stamp set with Real Red ink. I am so excited that this stamp set and coordinating Christmas Pinecone dies are going to be carried over. That means that you will still be able to order both of these until the Stampin' Up! 2022-2023 annual catalog comes out. 

I hope you have enjoyed my Merry Christmas Monday series this year. I had a lot of fun creating projects to share with all of you. 

I got an early Christmas present this year, Emily came home for 4 days! It is so wonderful having everyone here together. It will definitely be different this year on Christmas day, when she is back in Texas. I am enjoying every minute I have with her, Erica and Mr. Wonderful.

Have a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year! Sending lots of love and hugs to each and everyone of you!

Happy Stampin!

Until I saw it on Pinterest on a card created by 2 Big Gals Crafting. I had to check it out and make one myself.

I used the beautiful Tidings of Christmas suite in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. The sentiments are from this stamp set and stamped with Sahara Sand ink on the front and Cherry Cobbler on the inside. I used the Tidings of Christmas designer series paper to create the Twisted Ribbon Border. I love how Stampin' Up! puts a coordinating color on the back of the designer series paper. It makes it so much easier when doing a card like this.

It is the beautiful Gingham embossing folder. I thought it was really pretty in the catalog, but wait until you see it in person. It is absolutely gorgeous. You know what else I noticed with this embossing folder? Once you emboss it, both sides are beautiful. This was the first time that I love both sides of the paper once it is embossed.

One my list of products that I used to make this project, I can't add the Gingham embossing folder as it won't be available until January 4th.

I know some of you are probably wondering when you will get your new Stampin' Up! mini catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure. If you ordered from me in the last year, you will receive one in the mail from Stampin' Up! I had them send them out as it is less expensive for me than to mail them out myself. You should be receiving it soon.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a terrific day and week. 

Sending lots of love and hugs to everyone!

Happy Stampin!

Ho Ho Ho! it's Merry Christmas Monday! Today I have a fun Santa treat holder to share with all of you. When I saw these adorable Santa hat chocolate kisses at the store, I knew I wanted to make a Santa suit treat holder for them. These would be great for stocking stuffers, coworkers, Secret Santa or to give to someone in the service industry.

Cut away the sections that you don't need as in the picture above. Add Tear and Tape to the same places as I did above. You don't have to put on the middle piece of Tear and Tape. I put it on there as I wanted to make sure it would stay together as the chocolates are heavier than other chocolates I usually use. 

Round the corners with the Detailed Trio punch and then cut out a section in the large end flap with a die from the Rectangle Stitched dies. Both of these products are available in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog.

I added Tear and Tape about an inch long on the back side of the paper to stick the ribbon to. It was easier to add it now than when I had the box all put together. This is also when I added the Window Sheet, with Mini Glue Dots, to cover up the area I cut out with the Stitched Rectangle dies.

I used the Black and White Gingham ribbon from the holiday catalog. I am happy to say that this ribbon is being carried over. What that means, is you can still order it even though it is not in the catalog. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink and then cut it out with the Tailored Made Tags dies. I added velcro circles on the flap to hold it down.

Merry Christmas Monday! I have an easy project for you featuring chocolates that I purchased at a wonderful coffee shop in our town called Winan's Chocolates and Coffees.

StampinUpMiniPaperPumpkinBoxMerryChristmasMonday2021Week5StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2

When Emily and Jeff were here for Thanksgiving, we went there to get coffee, of course, and I saw these adorable chocolates. Immediately, I thought I have to make a box to put them in! I went home and created a box using the mini pizza boxes. Then I realized that they were retired. GRRR. So, I quickly created this box last night using the Gingerbread and Peppermint designer series paper.

To make this project you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

I added the silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog to complete the look of ornaments. I didn't add a sentiment to this project this time. I really like the simplicity of just the ornaments.

When you score the designer series paper, don't forget to put a shim (I used a small piece of Basic White Thick cardstock). This will give you the little bit of room you will need for the top to fit on the bottom of the box perfectly. One tip I have for you is that when you go to put the top of the box together, only make one end of the box. Then slide the top on the bottom of the box and make the other end. This will make sure that your top will fit perfectly every time.

I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in either Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz or Real Red ink. I tied each box with the Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon and then added either Basic Jewel Rhinestones or Red Rhinestones.

I have a beautiful sampler to share with you today. I can't take credit for this wonderful project.  My friend, Susi Brunk, created  this sampler and I fell in love with it. Susi was so kind to let me copy her project and make one for myself.  I asked her if it was alright for me to share it with all of you and she said "yes!"

I put it in a white picture frame that I had. I have it sitting in my craft room on a shelf. Every time I look at it I think of Susi. The picture of it in the frame is not the best as I had to take pictures multiple times to get a decent picture of it. Between the glass on frame and the shiny foil paper, it was hard to get a good picture. I was trying it to look as good in the pictures as it does in person.

Susi used the fabulous Whimsy & Wonder suite in the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. I love the designer series paper in this suite. For some of the squares she used the Christmas Tree dies, others she used the designer series paper to shine. Then on two of them she used the Wintry embossing folders. For embellishments Susie used the Polished Pink Open Weave ribbon and Blue Adhesive Backed Gems. 

Thank you so much Susi for sharing your gorgeous project with all of us! I love it!

It's Merry Christmas Monday! Today I have a Christmas card that I made using the Merry Snowflakes stamp set along with the Wintry embossing folder from the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. On Saturday, we had our team meeting and I demonstrated different ways to use the Stampin' Blending Brushes. I love our blending brushes, they are so much fun to use. They are so soft and easy to handle.

To create the look on my card, I used the blending brush to add ink to the Wintry embossing folder. We want to put the ink on the side that has the Stampin' Up! logo. I then ran it through the Stampin' Up! Cut & Emboss machine. You get this beautiful embossed and inked piece of paper that is so beautiful. Since there snowflakes on this, I wanted to make them sparkle so, I added Wink of Stella to the whole image.

This is a close up picture so you can see the embossed image better and kinda see the sparkle. It was hard trying to get the camera to capture the sparkle this time. I stamped the image with the Night of Navy ink and then cut it out using the Tasteful Labels dies.

For the bow on the card, I used the Glittered Organdy ribbon and a Night of Navy ribbon that I thought was still in the annual catalog, but realized when I went to look up the name of the ribbon, that it was discontinued. I am going to have to go through and double check all of my ribbon and make sure that I have only current ones in my holder.

Welcome to my Merry Christmas Monday series! I am so excited about my first project that I have to share with all of you. It is called an accordion fold card. We made a smaller version of this card in my creative fold class last week. It was a big hit!

When I started this project I wanted to use a stamp set I hadn't used before. I looked at my stamps and kept going back to Tidings & Trimmings, so that is what I used. This was one of my first stamp sets I bought for the holiday season, but kept putting it off to the side. I have a feeling you are going to be seeing this stamp set more.

For the panel on the left hand side I used the beautiful Merriest Frames Hybrid embossing folder. What is unique about this embossing folder is that it comes with dies! Guess what else is so awesome?! You can cut and emboss at the same time!!! That is how I made the Evening Evergreen layer. The flowers were cut out using the dies that are also included with this embossing folder.

For this panel I used the Christmas Trimmings dies and Copper Foil Sheets. I do have a tip for you if you use these dies. For the intricate dies (copper stars), I highly recommend that you use the Adhesive Sheets. It makes it so easy to adhere them to the solid stars.

On the back of the card I put this so you would have a place to write. I embellished it with Holly cut from the Christmas Trimmings dies and used Red Rhinestones for the berries.

This is what the card looks like when it is folded up and bow is tied. I used the gorgeous Evening Evergreen Chevron ribbon from the annual catalog.

This is definitely a card that you could use as a decoration in your home. I wanted to make a box to put this in, as I don't think it would fit in any envelope, but with Halloween yesterday and other commitments, I didn't get a chance to make it.
