Please, with a cherry on top! - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the weekly Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!

Today the Artisan Design team will be sharing projects using the Cherry On Top products.

With the launch of the new Annual Stampin" Up! catalogue there was a change to the paper stacks ... they are now 6"x6"!! I think this is a fantastic size for cards and scrapbook pages! Did you know that there are 48 sheets in each stack for $10! (CAD).

Another amazing change is that you can now purchase Cardstock Packs that coordinate with all of the Designer Series Paper!!!
I have been dying to play with the new Gift Bag Punch Board. I found a few fun ways to use this board when I was creating ... first up is a gift bag, of course! 

I punched the cardstock according to the instructions included with the Gift Bag Punch Board. Before I assembled it I stamped the "Happy" multiple times. 

The bag filler is a sheet of Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper ran through the paper shredder and crumbled with my hands.

When I was using the punch board I thought that it would make a flap perfect for a match book card.

1.  Cut your card base to 4 1/4" x 11".
2.  Score at 2" and 7". Fold along the score lines.
3.  Use the Gift Box Punch Board to punch the top card flap as shown in the photo above.
4.  Staple the bottom flap of the card (staple at 1" up from the bottom of the card to allow the card top flap to tick into the bottom.

One more project .... I did a scrapbook layout! Can you believe that I have never done a Birthday Theme scrapbook layout before? Truth! 

I used the Gift Box Punch Board to create photo mats and journal squares. They have an index card kind of feel. You know, the ones that used to be in the front cover of library books? Oh dear, I am showing my age! Do you remember what I am talking about? They had an envelope in the front cover and tucked inside was an index card. They would write your name and stamp the date with a rotary stamp.

The Cherry On Top Paper stack is so colorful and fun! Keep clicking along on the blog hop to see what the Artisan Design Team has created with it! Next up is Lisa Harlow!
