Falling in Love with Card Candy! created by Buffy Cooper .
Go to Craft Project Central to see more information on how to get this great tutorial:)
Whether you need a gift for a crafty friend, want to help a new crafter get started with card making, or need to make a quick card yourself, this tote full of card candy is the answer. Using the Falling in Love suite from the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog, you’ll create several sheets of sentiments and embellishments that can easily be added to a card base to create a beautiful card in minutes. The adorable purse is perfect to hold the card candy and can be used as a gift bag later. An added bonus is a greeting card using some of the candy so the recipient can see how simple it is to create a card. This would make a lovely hostess gift or a fun class or stamp camp.
Don’t forget to play along with the Creating Pretty Cards Cards Challenge #67 this month:)

It’s my turn to share my Craft Project Central project for January!
I created a Falling Flowers 8-½” x 11” One Sheet Wonder!
In this tutorial at CRAFT PROJECT CENTRAL, you will be creating a seven card ensemble using an 8-½” x 11” sheet of Whisper White Cardstock that you’ll transform into a colorful patterned paper using with the Falling Flowers Stamp Set. You will learn how to cut that one sheet of patterned cardstock to create seven unique coordinating cards. Finally, you’ll get to package the seven card ensemble in a cute little book box that holds both the cards and envelopes.

Looking for a sweet little gift to give to those who touch your life? How about a calendar they look at frequently and know that you care for them! I made these calendars for my wonderful group of stamping friends. I picked a sentiment from SU Garden in Bloom that I wanted them to read a lot.
“Hope you’re feeling special today…because that’s just what you are!”
Of course, the little BEE is ME reminding them each day!
I am blown away by how blessed I am to have met so many delightful women through my classes…such dear gals I truly cherish! I look so forward to seeing them each month and keeping in touch in between- love you all bunches!!!
The flowers are from the SU Botanical Builder Framelits and the calendars are from TayloredExpressions.com.
These calendars are a standard A2 size (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) with a stand up mechanism adhered inside on the bottom the card. See the photo below for dimensions. I found it easiest to put adhesive on the inside bottoms of the card base and then adhere the easel mechanism one side at a time lining it up against the edge. I love how they stand up so nicely with the easel.
I even had a friend email me a pic of her calendar sitting by her computer:)
I packaged the calendar gifts in SU Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags stamped with the amazing SU Merry Medley Background stamp, SU Layering Ovals, and some retired Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler DSP punched with the retired SU Tree Punch. These bags are perfect for an A2 card- I even folded back the top 1″ of the pinked bag top so it is even a bit bigger to accommodate other treats!

A unique project from Michelle Wecksler this month at Craft Project Central.
Butterfly Basics Painted Tote Set
Learn how to get a double dose out of your photopolymer stamps by getting both a background and a detailed image from the same photopolymer stamp. This Painted Tote Set includes a paint-stamped canvas tote, a set of matching tote notepapers and a beautiful tag for gift giving. What a fun project to keep small hands stamping. You can add additional gifts to the totes such as stamps, stamping or scrapbooking treats. These totes make great gifts for the holidays and any special occasion!
