Freebie Friday Warm Hugs

 WOW you guys.... I don't typically jump on the Christmas prep wagon so soon, but this pandemic and new-found Stampin Up adventure has me wanting to make this Christmas holiday extra special!  We NEED that, right?!?  So this week I'm featuring more Christmas prep goodness with two cards and an easy gift box featuring Stampin Up's limited edition holiday bundle:  Warm Hugs.  To be quite honest I purchased the WHOLE SHBANG.... the entire suite of products that includes DSP, dies, TWO stamp sets, embossing folders, paper cups with holders, ribbon, embellishments... you get my point.... A LOT!  Now, if you're making a crazy amount of cards and gifts for Christmas, this suite is SOOOO worth the investment, but today we're just featuring the bundle in the suite:  Warm Hugs Bundle.  As always, the link to the free PDF with all the products used and measurements will be posted below the last pic in this post.... check it out.  Remember, any order in my online store using Hostess Code 7FHHJEE2 will receive all three of these make n' take kits for free, CLICK HERE to go to my online store.  

So I've been focusing on keeping all the projects quick and easy as I figured with us being so disconnected from friends and loved ones this year, we'll be wanting to increase the number of cards and gifts going out.  Well.... if you're having to pound out 100+ of anything, you want to keep it simple and easy to "assembly line" it!  First up is the banner card:

There is NOT going to be an easier card!  hahahahaha!  Easy, straight forward and if you replace the embossed piece with the star sheet from the Wonderful Time Refill kit (that we featured in the recorded video) that saves you even more time!  But I DO love the pop from that Tin Tile 3D embossing folder.  BTW, because I replaced it with the star sheet from the refill kit, it mysteriously came up missing on the product list.  Just so you have it, here's the item number:  151801 and the price on that embossing folder is $10.00.

Okay... next up is the gift box made simply using one of the mini paper pumpkin boxes.  This thing will fit SO much!  I intend to fill it with holiday tags and gift it.  But you can fill it with candy, cards, I've seen hot cocoa fixins and s'mores fixins.... even a tool set!  Check pinterest for TONS of ideas!

Last up is this label card featured on the mini paper pumpkin box project above, this one features a tag from that oh-so-versatile Hippo Happiness Bundle!  Now, I'll be honest, when I first saw that set I thought it was a little too cutesy for my taste.  Turns out I was TOTALLY wrong and it is an AMAZING set with TONS of different labels and those cutesy images have been used way more than I would have originally imagined.  I mean, "when in doubt be a unicorn".... GOLD!  And I did put that Tin Tile 3D embossing folder to good use again!  I am IN LOVE with that folder at the moment!  Anyway, another simple card you can do a million of quickly!!!  Here's the link to this week's FREE PDF:  CLICK HERE, and if the hostess code looks familiar... that's because it is! hahahahaha!  Due to time constraints this week we're recycling from last week!  LOL!

Okay everyone, that about does it this week.... have a great one and be on the lookout for November's AWESOME Christmas class.  Schedule will be released next week.  I can hardly wait to show you all the goodies coming in this class..... DID SOMEONE SAY INTERACTIVE MINI BOOK????

Here's to Breast Cancer Awareness!!! My project for this hop is a reminder card..."Remember your checkups!" What a wonderful way to say "I love you" to a dear friend or family member. Now you may not be able to see it in the pic above, but I altered The Greeting Farm's Ebony so that her tee shirt reads, "Say YES to Mammograms!" So, today I wanted to share HOW I added the words to her tee. First I printed the words as small as I could and still be able to read the message using my laser printer onto the paper that I would be using to color in my i
