Snowman Soup Warms The Soul…

I have another fun project to share today, I made some festive packaging for my SNOWMAN SOUP gifts this year.  These would make great Teacher gifts because when they have consumed all the contents of the box they can reuse the box itself with or without the little PUNCH ART SNOWMAN, isn’t he ADORABLE!!

Snowman soup warms the soul especially when adorable punch art decorates the package http://www.handstampedstyle.com

Making him was super easy I used the 1″ CIRCLE PUNCH for his belly and the 3/4″ CIRCLE PUNCH for his head.  I cut in half a LABEL PETITE CURLY PUNCH piece for the top of his hat and just cut a thin (about 1/8″) strip of black card stock to make the brim of his hat.  For his arms I used the branch shape from the BIRD BUILDER PUNCH and just trimmed off the leafy parts.  Then I hand drew on his eyes and buttons and his nose is hand cut from some PUMPKIN PIE CARD STOCK.

Snowman soup warms the soul especially when adorable punch art decorates the package http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I LOVE that these window boxes have an opening that work perfectly with the WONDROUS WREATH image.  I stamped the image onto Whisper White card stock and cut it out with the WREATH FRAMELITS and attached it to the box lid with some glue dots.  This adorable box is perfect for things like scarves, jewelry, candy, bracelets, hair ties… really anything!

In case you can’t read the poem, here is what it says:

Here’s a little Snowman Soup, Complete with stirring stick, Just add hot water, Sip it slow… It’s sure to do the trick!

Of course this little package has a pack of hot coco, a baggie of Marshmallows, and some mini candy canes (for stirring, LOL!!)  You could make a TON of these in no time flat.  These are just the right little gift to tell someone thank you or thinking of you this holiday season.  Give this project a go on your own and tell me what you think.  If you need any of these products to create this project just POP over to my ONLINE STORE and grab them…

One Week To Change Your Life!

I wish it was a magic pill that I was announcing that would cure all that ale’s you… but it’s not, OR IS IT??  I am SO excited to share this NEW promotion that Stampin’ Up! has just announced, and it just might cure all that ale’s you- it did pretty much that for me!

FOR ONE WEEK ONLY (Nov. 24th- Dec. 2)

GET YOUR STARTER KIT FOR LESS THAN $75 + EARN 5% CASH BACK ON ALL SALES (PURCHASES) MADE IN DECEMBER!!!

http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I feel like I should ask you, “What’s in YOUR wallet?”

But I digress… seriously, what better early Christmas Gift to you (or even for a creative family member or friend) than to JOIN THE STAMPIN’ UP! FAMILY AND THE HSS TEAM than NOW!!  If you have toyed with the idea of being a Demonstrator, now is the time… you can get SO many perks during this promotion.  For one you will be getting $125 worth of product (select anything you want!) for under $75 and NO shipping!!

Plus there are a TON of other perks, like the additional 5% cash back for all your sales/purchases made in December, that’s ON TOP of the instant income (flat 20%) that you automatically get as a Demo.  So for the month of Dec. you are already earning 25% back off your sales/purchases!!

AND… you also have the opportunity to EARN EVEN MORE $$, depending on your sales amount for the month you can earn up to an ADDITIONAL 25% commission of your sales.

You will also get the ability to see Stampin’ Up!s catalogs and publications BEFORE anyone else, AND you get to order product from those publications before the general public as well!!  Those are just a few of the MANY perks that Stampin’ Up! offers you…

I have a complete list of ALL the awesome PERKS that I, Erin Gonzales with Hand Stamped Style, offer my personal Team Members with as well.  You can see them ALL HERE and I have some helpful video Q&A for you too that will help answer some of the most commonly asked questions.

I know that some may think I would like to become a Demonstrator, but I could NEVER do what Erin does.  I don’t know technology, or I am not that creative, or I don’t know that many people, or I don’t have a place to have classes… have you ever thought of one of these reasons to talk you out of the idea of becoming your own boss?  Ever used one of these reasons to talk yourself out of changing your life?  Don’t do it again!!  I have shared my story many times, but what it comes down to is when I first started, youtube was almost non-existant, Facebook wasn’t around, Instagram was probably a fleeting thought in some 12 year old’s head… but I learned it, and you can too.  Believe me when I say I am THE dullest knife in the drawer, and if I can learn how to use these tools for my business you can too.  Weirdly enough, when I first became a Demo I wasn’t as business minded as I am now- NONE of us are!

We all grow and evolve and take different paths and avenues to get where we want to go in life.  For some getting some awesome product that you would have purchased anyway at a discount is the reason for JOINING MY TEAM, and for others it’s wanting to contribute to your families income potential, and for others it’s earning FREE vacations (which are AMAZE-balls by the way).  I would love to help you figure out what your reason is, and it doesn’t have to be the same as mine, or anyone else… it’s yours uniquely.

While you ponder the opportunity laid before you,

Turkey Poop Is A Perfect Gift

I just realized this morning that I was meant to create and post a project for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge this week, and I TOTALLY forgot!! Ugh, one of these days I will pull out my head from where it’s lodged and get ahead of my schedule and get on the ball. SO I will be posting that project a little later today… please check back cause it’s going to be cute!

But in the meantime I have another FUN project to share with you that I offered at the Holiday Event I was part of this last weekend.  These are always one of my FAVORITE treats to give as gifts!!  Yes, partly because there is POOP involved- LOL!!

Giving Turkey Poop is even more tastey when it's dressed up with an owl punch turkey created by http://www.handstampedstyle.com

These pie boxes were from my November Paper Pumpkin kits… they are perfect for these little gifts.  The boxes were a breeze to put together and of course you can recreate the little owls by following the instructions I gave in THIS VIDEO.

If you can’t tell what the funny poem says let me share-

You invited me to dinner, with your family & your friends,

You didn’t say I was the main dish, for me it was the end!

You frightened me so badly, I knew that I’d been duped!

So I left you with my calling card- this bag of TURKEY POOP!

Bwahahahahahahahahhaaahhaha!! Aahhh, that gives me a big belly laugh each time!  I don’t know if I will ever grow up, who wants to?

I am SO excited to tell you about some things I have in the pipeline for Black Friday coming up soon- but no details just yet, but you will WANT to stay tuned and check back often so that you don’t miss out when I do reveal them.  I will be incorporating some FUN things with my PINTEREST PAGE as well, so if you don’t already FOLLOW ME ON PINTEREST then you will want to take a few moments and become a follower!!  I can hardly contain myself for what I have in store!!

Super Cute Holiday Punch Art Gifts

On Saturday I was able to be a part of a craft fair that my friend and fitness instructor hosted for her friends, family and followers!! It was SO much fun and the turnout was AWESOME!!  I made several holiday treat projects that would be great for Teacher gifts or a perfect stocking stuffer (of course my favorite ones are the toilet humor ones).  I will be sharing a few of them with you this week.  Here is what my set up looked like, I was confined to one table so it’s a little crowded-

hand stamped style's craft fair set up for holiday fair http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I made lots of fun festive treats for attendees to enjoy, check out one a variation of my GRATITUDE POUCH that I recreated for TURKEY TOES…

Adorable pouches make perfect Turkey Toes holders and Turkeys made from the Owl Punch http://www.handstampedstyle.com

I simply replaced the name tags from my gratitude pouch treats with the TURKEY TOES tag and they were done.  I normally fill these with the fall version of candy corn, BUT my store had none out… SO the next best thing…

Owl Punch Turkey Punch Art

I am so GRATEFUL for ALL my service men and women today, HAPPY VETERANS DAY!!  Today I am totally filled with gratitude and thanksgiving and I am sharing that in another TV presentation TODAY on the local show SA Live.  I am focused on THANKSGIVING and I have a fun project to share.  I have always gotten TONS of love for the little OWL PUNCH TURKEY I originally created years ago in a Stamp Camp.

creating alternative punch art using the owl punch is a snap and http://www.handstampedstyle.com shows you how

You should know that no holiday or season can pass without creating a project that has to do with POO… well Thanksgiving is NO different, so for this Stamp Camp I created an additional project using the same OWL PUNCH TURKEY

creating alternative punch art using the owl punch is a snap and http://www.handstampedstyle.com shows you how

So with that in mind I thought I should share a new version of this cute little OWL PUNCH TURKEY with the viewers today, and you too of course… so I was thinking that this year I would create a fun twist on the Fortune Cookie… with a Thanksgiving feel.  So I thought what better way to do that then with some adorable Gratitude Pouch!

creating alternative punch art using the owl punch is a snap and http://www.handstampedstyle.com shows you how

These adorable gratitude pouches (formally known as sour cream packets) can be filled with treats, toys, or with sweet sentiments on a strip of paper.  I filled mine with a few candy corns and 2-3 strips of THANKFUL statements that are specific to the recipient.  I have labeled the pouches for each guest that will be attending our family feast, and these will be placed on their place settings so they will know where to sit as well.

creating alternative punch art using the owl punch is a snap and http://www.handstampedstyle.com shows you how

I bet you are wondering why I used a different punch for the Turkey tails, well that would be because the original punch I used a few years ago has retired and I no longer own it and so the best substitute for this dilemma is the 1-1/4″ and the 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch for the tail.  Oh and I decided GOOGLIE EYES made these babies WAY more cute, so I used those!

creating alternative punch art using the owl punch is a snap and http://www.handstampedstyle.com shows you how

I have a fast and simple VIDEO TUTORIAL that shows you how to create this project, and I will be sharing that at 2 PM once the live demonstration is over.  I will post it here on my site and my YOUTUBE CHANNEL so be sure to check back here or SUBSCRIBE to my Youtube Channel and get notified as soon as I publish it!
