Family Gift: National Popcorn Day + Retired Lists


Hello, hello lots of stuff going on for us around here sorry been missing in action. April is my normal crazy hectic month worse than Christmas (how is that possible even lol) Hubby and I went to Wisconsin and I attended Onstage were I got the New Catalog!! I had a blast! It was AWESOME!!! I'll have more about that this next week.

After getting back we started working on a lot of projects and they are taking way longer than we thought they would. lol Then I had several teeth break apparently I didn't have a good dentist, that lead me to a new dentist and some very not good news. Ughh I've had to have lots of major work done the past two months which has resulted to lots of pain, not being able to eat much and some pretty nasty migraines thus why I've been missing. Make sure you have a good dentist!!


I have so much to share with you all! That I will be breaking up the info over a few days of blog posts so it's not so much at once! So be sure to stop back I plan on doing several blog posts a day or subscribe to my blog so you don't miss out on anything.


Stampin' Up! released the Retiring List: It's that time of the year. Out with the Old and in with the New!! The Stampin' Up! Retired List has been released. Lots of items going so you'll want to get them before they are gone forever. Remember these items are while supplies last ONLY. Retiring stamps will be available at least through May 25, 2018.  Retiring accessories (designer series paper, dies, punches, ribbon and more) are ONLY AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.Some of the bundles are retiring however some of the product is being carried over to the new annual catalog (starts June 1). They will only be offered individually and no longer available for the 10% off the bundle so I recommend if there is a bundle you want on the retired list get it to save the 10%.

Ready to Pop Stamp Set
Ready to Pop Stamp Set

  Today's project features 2 of the items on the retiring list the Ready to Pop Photopolymer Stamp Set & Popcorn Box Thinlit. I love these two items and I am sad to see them go since I really thought they were very versatile. I also used them to create one of the gifts I made for our family.


Did you know there is a National Popcorn Day? I sure did not! lol When I saw it listed, I knew I wanted to do it immediately because I owned this set and die and because I LOVE popcorn. I actually pop it like how my family did when I was a kid on the stove in a pan. I just use Olive Oil instead of vegetable oil sometimes we melt butter and put it on there too. This was one of the family gifts for our year of gifts. If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE or visit my pinterest board  Rubber Redneck Year Gifts to see them all in one spot.

The popcorn bowl came from Target's dollar spot. I walked in and there they were exactly 5 on the shelf left. WOW and too funny, they were $5 a piece but we both thought they were cool and wanted to included them. They were heavy and nice well worth the $5. I found read clear jars from the dollar spot at target and filled them with popcorn seeds. We also add microwave popcorn and some butter sprinkle stuff. I decorated the microwave popcorn with a bell band.


Here is a top view to see inside the bowl better.


Using the Ready to Pop Stamp Set I stamped the images then die cut them out using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, Popcorn Box Thinlits and Layering Ovals Framelits. Is this not stinkin cute? I then created the popcorn box out of Whisper White card stock again using the Big Shot Die cut Machine and the Popcorn Box Thinlit. I cut strips of Real Red card stock to make it look like the old time popcorn container. I had some left over red straws from the christmas gifts so I added them to the gift to. Overall the gift cost us around $15 per family not to bad if you would like to make this as a gift idea down the road.

Here is one that Stampin' Up! made using the Popcorn Box Thinlit.


See so versatile would work for anything! They used the You've Got This Stamp Set which is another retiring stamp set this year too.
