My dear sweet team member, Helene Hebert, shared this fabulous interlocking treat box with me. She is so talented. As soon as I saw it, I asked for the details, so that I could share it with you guys. Because Helene is such a generous paper crafting artist, she granted me permission. Are you ready to be blown away?

WOW! Okay, first, it’s not hard. I promise. Get out your score board and paper trimmer and of course that gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  If you haven’t added that to your stash, be sure to do so before November 30. 

Interlocking Treat Box, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

This one really packs that WOW factor. Just lift the box lid, slide the front panels open and the interlocking treat box is revealed. The box holds six of these very fancy Ferrero Rocher chocolates. This would make a great hostess gift. What about your hair dresser, nail tech, UPS driver, teacher or special friend?

Can you see how the smaller top boxes slide over the bottom box to create that interlocking feature? By using thick Whisper White card stock for my base, my box is super sturdy and ready to decorate.

Using multiple patterns from the Christmastime is Here paper pack, made my box super special. Did you know the papers include gold foiling. Can’t get too much fancier than that. Time to tie things up with the pretty Cherry Cobbler ribbon. Coordination is never an issue with Stampin’ Up! products. No worries, everything matches!!

Toile Tidings Christmas Gift Set

Toile Tidings Christmas Gift Set

It’s all about the packaging! At least that’s what I think. Nothing makes a gift more special than taking time to create your own packaging.  My beautiful sweet sister will be hosting her WOW Club Night Party this week. I always give my hostesses their choice of project. Kathy wanted a Christmas gift bag and card. The Toile Tidings suite came to mind and I got busy.

Toile Tidings Gift Set, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

This Toile Tidings Suite can be found on page 6-9 of the Holiday Catalog.  I knew I wanted to use the cardinal in the design because our Mom loves them. I knew Kathy would want to give her a special gift in a special bag.

Toile Tidings Gift Set, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because I embossed the cardinal with our black embossing powder it gave it a rich look. The Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend was my color medium. Quick, easy but very dramatic. And did you notice, I colored all the way to the edge of the paper. I really like that look for this image.

Toile Tidings Gift Set, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

And that gorgeous wreath was the perfect little “nest” to create for my cardinal.  I cut that using the All Around Wreath die set. I cut one wreath in Garden Green and the other in Gold Foil. I just offset them giving them even more dimension and interest.

Toile Tidings Gift Set, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

To highlight the top edge of the focal image I added some foilage cut from with the Beautiful Boughs die set. All the foilage on the bag was inked with the Golden Glitz Delicata Ink. I love the richness it added to those elements.

Toile Tidings Gift Set, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

And every gift bag needs a tag, right? I created mine with the Scallop Tag Topper punch. Adding a little sentiment decorated with the leaves from the Christmas Cardinal dies was the perfect touch. All I needed to complete the gift set was a matching card.

Toile Tidings Christmas Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

WOW, this card came together very quick and easy. The gorgeous Toile Tididngs Designer Series Paper in the background set the tone for both the card and the bag. You only need one sheet of the 12″ x 12″ to complete both.

Winter Sampler Featuring Let it Snow

Winter Sampler Featuring Let it Snow

I LOVE creating samplers. Are you ready for my Winter Sampler? I’m going to feature lots of the products in our Let it Snow Suite. You can find all those on pages 18-21 in the Holiday Catalog.

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Ok tell me, does this not make you smile? It’s just such a happy  piece. And you know what, if the cold weather we’ve been having is any indication, this might be the year we see some snow flurries in Louisiana. So, I’m ready!!

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The Let it Snow suite include the cute Snowman Season Bundle. That one includes the stamp set and the snowman builder punch. There has been some very popular items in the suite. First off, the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint has been a BIG HIT!!! All you have to do is apply it, heat it up with a heat tool and watch the magic happen. 

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

One of the “sleeper” die sets, (in my humble opinion) you may have missed, is the gorgeous Stitched Brightly Dies. Those can be found on page 29. That’s what I used to create that lovely star image. Because they are so beautiful, I decided to isolate one of the Christmas trees on the other die to create the square with the lone Christmas tree.

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The swirly images that accent the top and bottom corners of my Winter Sampler, are die cuts from the Stitched Stars Dies. That set will take you long past the holiday season.

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Are you wondering how I created those sparkly snowflakes? First, I cut three sets of the images, using the die in the Christmas Layers Die set. Then I applied a coat of our new Shimmery Crystal Effects, sprinkled on some of the Ice Stampin’ Glitter and let it dry. The effect is dramatic and was the perfect touch to my icy Winter Sampler.

Winter Sampler, Let it Snow, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Be sure to pick up a pack or two of the Let it Snow Specialty DSP. Those stinkin’ cute snowmen came from the paper. One can be punched while the other two easily fussy cut. Want to create a sample for yourself or to give as a fabulous gift? Not only do I have a FREE video tutorial for you, but a full PDF instruction file.

Random Acts of Kindness Countdown

Random Acts of Kindness Countdown

Have you seen the Christmas Countdown Project Kit on page 38 of the Holiday Catalog? It makes a great Advent Calendar and countdown to the big day. 

Christmas Countdown Project Kit

But, the opposite side, of the little boxes, can also be decorated to your heart’s desire.  I decided that the flip side of mine would become my Random Acts of Kindness Countdown. What better way to commerate the month of thanks? 

Random Act of Kindness Countdown, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

And as my little Random Acts of Kindness for you, I’m gifting you the two files I created for this project. Because you’ll need numbers for the little box drawers, I created a numbers file that you can easily punch with a 1″ circle punch. Random Acts of Kindness Numbers

The second file is a 2-page PDF with a Random Act of Kindness for each of the drawers. I used the Everyday Label Punch to punch these out. Random Acts of Kindness Verses

During the design process, my first task at hand was to choose my papers and layout for each.  To make things easy for you, I’ve grouped each paper design with the corresponding numbers.

Using the Come to Gather DSP was an easy decision. I think the colors are calming and just bold enough for the Fall season. In that suite, we also have the Gather Together bundle. I used that to stamp and die cut the cute little pumpkin images.  Here’s a closup of each of the 7 designs.

Random Act of Kindness Countdown, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

I’m going to give my grandchildren a box and I’m going to keep one. We are going to have a Random Acts of Kindness challenge.  I think this is a great teaching moment and a chance for me to communicate a lesson of service.
