Gifts, 3D projects – something other than cards and memory keeping.

Parisian Beauty Shadow Box Insert

I recently decided it was time to change the insert for this frame so I created this Parisian Beauty Shadow Box Insert for it! The first time I saw this bundle in the January to June Mini Catalogue, I knew that it was what I wanted to use to update this insert! The Parisian Blossom Specialty DSP (Designer Series Paper) from the Suite is amazing – the pool party, petal pink, and silver foil are beautiful when all put together! I added some bling and die cuts to complete the layout – I love the results!! 🥰

Now let’s see the products I used:

If you want to order, click on the image or the description and you’ll be directed to my online store! The Parisian Beauty Suite will not be carried over to the 2020 – 2021 Annual Catalogue so, if you want it for your craft room, be sure to get it now!


I thought you might like to recreate the insert so I’m sharing the instructions and dimensions for it. Of course, if you would like different colours for your decor you can always choose a different DSP and match it with the coordinating colours listed on the DSP package.

So here you go:

  1. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 9-1/2″ x 9-1/2”
  2. Basic Black Cardstock:
    1. Cut 1 @ 3″ x 5″
    2. Cut 2 @ 3-1/2″ x 2-1/4″
    3. Cut 4 @ 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
  3. Pool Party Cardstock:
    1. Cut 1 @ 2-3/4″ x 4-3/4″
    2. Cut 2 @ 3-1/4″ x 2″
    3. Cut 4 @ 2″ x 2″
  4. Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper:
    1. Cut 2 @ 3″ x 2″
    2. Cut 2 @ 9-1/2″ x 1-1/2″
  5. Cut Silver Foil Cardstock and Petal Pink Cardstock with Parisian Dies and the Big Shot.
  6. Use Pool Party Classic Ink to stamp background images and borders on Pool Party Cardstock.
  7. Use Tuxedo Memento Black Ink to stamp the greetings.
  8. Use Snail Adhesive to attach the DSP.
  9. Use Snail Adhesive and Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach cardstock as shown.

Here’s a look at the insert before I put it in the frame….

Gift Card Holder made with an Envelope

Gift Card Holder made with an Envelope

At our Monthly Card Club class this was the “most liked” project!!  And it was the quickest one to make!  As you can see, by using ribbon that coordinates with the Designer Series Paper, you can make a variety of different gift card holders.  I think we’ve found a great way to use those smaller pieces of DSP that we all have in our stash!

Here are the products used:

Here are the instructions and dimensions for this card:

  1. Fold Whisper White Envelope in half – score with Bone Folder.  Open the envelope flap, moisten with Aqua Painter and seal it inside the envelope.
  2. Cut 14″ of Mint Macaron 1/4″ Textile Ribbon.  Place the centre of the ribbon on the centre fold of the envelope.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach the ribbon to the front side of the envelope.
  3. Cut Mint Macaron Cardstock at 4-1/8″ x 2-5/8”.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach over the ribbon on the front side of the envelope.
  4. Cut Best Dressed DSP at 3-7/8″ x 2-3/8″.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach over the Mint Macaron cardstock layer.
  5. Punch out 1-3/4″ circle of Mint Macaron Cardstock.  (Note: The 1-3/4″ Circle Punch is retired but the Circle Dies are available.)  Use Snail Adhesive to attach over the DSP.
  6. Use Memento Black Ink to stamp the greeting on Whisper White Cardstock.  Punch out with the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the Mint Macaron Circle.
  7. Tie the ribbon to close the holder.

Shadow Box Insert For My Team Members!

Shadow Box Insert For My Team Members!

I love surprising my awesome team members every once in a while!  This is my latest creation that I sent to each of my 1st level team members – do you like it?  It can be displayed in an 8″ x 8″ Shadow Box Frame, in a page protector or on your desk using a stand.  The current Crafting Forever Stamp Set was perfect for my creation and I enjoyed using the Purple Tricolor Ribbon to tie it all together!
