Note Pad Holder

Here is the last item everyone made at the Christmas Class. This gift could easily be themed for any occassion. They make perfect back to school gifts for your child's teacher.
The New Concord Crush is right on for my daughters school colors. I am in love with the new In Colors so I paired it with Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride. The main base is 8.5x11 and scored at 1/2", 3/4", 6", 6-1/4". The not pad itself is 5x8 and I got at my local office supply place. You can easily change the dimentions to fit whatever size notepad you use. For this one the cardstock just touches edges, so the decorative strips were added to go over the seam. Both decorative strips were punches with the Eyelet Border Punch. I punch a couple of row with the word window punch on the back of the cover to slip the notepad into. A few slits in the sides and the ribbon helps hold the pen in place. I helped it close with a couple small pieces of velcro. They are not completely necessary, but felt they would help. The title is stamped in Concord Crush with the Jumble Alphabet and the flourish is from "Elements of Style" and stamped with a White Craft Pad.

Products Used:

Stamps: Elements of Style, Jumble Alphabet

Cardstock: Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Whisper White

Ink: White Craft Pad, Concord Crush

Accessories: Hobby Blade, Mat Pack, 5/8" Organza Ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch, notepad, velcro

Tres Chic Purse (gift card)

These are too cute. I found them on Becky Roberts Blog. Everyone at the Christmas in July class last week got to make one. Becky has tutorials for sale to make 3 different purses. I have two of them pictured today. They are about 5 inches across, the perfect size for a gift card or a few pieces of candy.
The colors of the purses are Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, and Island Oasis Designer Paper on an Old Olive base. Since Becky sells the tutorial I can't share how to make them here. Contact me and I will put together a class for you and your friends.

Gift Tag & Candy Box

I made this with the idea of doing it at the Christmas in July class, but we already had a lot of other things to do. Still I had it to show and think I will add it to the next gift class I do.
The box is made from Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and holds 4-- 3x3 Gift Cards and Envelopes. You could probably fit 6 card with tags, but I just happen to only do 4 this time. The cards were done with textured Basic Gray Cardstock, little strips of Cherry Cobbler and a small piece of Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper. I also wrapped the nugget candy in Jolly Holiday DSP.
The penguin is one of the images from this years Ronald McDonald House Stamp Set called "Tag Alongs." So cute and $2 from the purchase of each stamp set goes to the RMHC.
I don't have the measurements of the box for you today. I want to tweak the box a little so the candy fits differently. Maybe I just need bigger candy. I will work on that and post it in the future. I covered the box using the Medium Window Sheets.

Pinecone Ornaments

All of the participants at the Christmas in July class got to make a pinecone ornament. Here is a picture of two of them. These are simple to make and only take a few supplies. To learn how to make your own, keep an eye out for future classes or book a class with your friends today. Contact me for available dates.
Materials needed: 12x12 Designer Paper (Jolly Holiday used here), Ribbon (5/8" Old Olive Satin used here), pins, styrofoam ball, and lots of finger strength.

"JOY" Banner

Here is one of the projects I had for everyone to get decorating ideas from.
The penant banner is made using the Pennant Banner Die for the Big Shot. This is the larger of the two penants that come on the die. The Old Olive scallop circles are also on the die. They are slightly bigger than the ones made with the scallop circle punch. The letters were cut with the Big Shot using the Timeless Type Alphabet.
To hang the banner I punched holes and attached Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets with the Crop-A-Dile. The tassle at the bottom is 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon. When you cut the ribbon there is one end that will naturally unravel if you pull at the strings. The other end I cut the side of the ribbon off to make the threads easier to remove. The Designer Paper in the background is from the current Idea Book & Catalog. It coordinates with the Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Very Vanilla cardstocks. I cut it with the Pennant Banner Die to get the shape just right, then cut off the scallops.

Products Used:
Stamps: NONE
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Jolly Holiday DSP
Accessories: Pennant SU! Bigz XL Die, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets, 1/4" Old Olive Grograin Ribbon, Crop-a-Dile, 2-way glue pen, 5/8" Old Olive Grograin Ribbon

New Header

I thought it was time for a new blog header, so you get a bonus post today. If you receive this by an automatic feed, click the title of this post to go to my blog and view the header. I also changed the background and made a few tweeks to the layout.
I wanted to do something bright. What a great chance to use the NEW 2010-2012 In Colors. The mat color behind the entire header and the mat behind my name plate is Concord Crush. The decorative border strip at the bottom is in Pear Pizzazz. It is the border stamp from Vintage Vogue two times over. The flourish is from the same set and is done in Blushing Bride. The flowers on the flourish are Poppy Parade and the "Friends F" is Peach Parfait.
The entire header was made using My Digital Studio. SU! had been wonderful and gave all My Digital Studio users a free upgrade with the New In Colors. Thank you SU! I also added some courduroy brads in Basic Grey. Though these brads are no longer sold by SU! they will never retire from My Digital Studio. I sized them down to fit onto the flowers. There is some black stitching around the edge of the entire thing. By the creative use of some punches I was able to block out anything on the edges of the header I didn't want to show, such as the extra portions of the stitching or the flourish stamp.
Contact me for more on how to use My Digital Studio. I am available for a private training session or for groups. I will bring my computer along, hook it up to your TV and everyone can see all the great things that My Digital Studio can do. To order your own copy, contact me or order it online 24/7 at My Stampin' Up! Website. My Digital Studio is available for PC or MAC.

Christmas in July

Fun was had by all at Saturday's class. Here is one of the simple projects we did. It is a wine bottle tag. You could also make it as a doorknob hanger. The wreath could be used to embelish any number of projects.
BASICS: The Real Red Cardstock is 8-1/2" x 4". Score the tag at 2-1/2" and punch a 1-3/4" Circle. The Whisper White piece is 5-1/2" x 3-1/2" I decorated my tag with the "Sweet Season" stamp set. I received the stamp set for FREE at Stampin' Up! Convention last year. (Contact me to learn about the FREE things you can get from Stampin' Up!) I stamped the image onto the tag with Basic Black ink, then onto a scrap piece with Real Red. I punched just the house out with the Small Oval Tag and mounted it with a dimensional directly over the black house.
The wreath at the top was so fun to make. I got the instructions from Lynn Pratt here. You have to wait a bit for the video to load.
I made this wreath with some retired ribbon from last years winter mini catalog I had hanging around. We made them with 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon at the class. It takes a little bit to get the hang of it, but they are easy when you do. I embelished mine with a red 1/4" Grosgrain bow and a mini tag tied with some linen thread.

Blushing Bride Style

I have another card and scrapbook combination for you today. This one features the Blushing Bride In Color just released.
Blushing Bride in a nice color. The best way I can describe the is a matte version of the Pretty In Pink. Pretty In Pink looks a bit brighter. Pink Pirouette in a little more subtle. The Blushing Bride has a sort of small beige tint to it when I look at it. To get the best view of the colors, ask your demonstrator.
The color combination for thie project is Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, and Early Expresso. I cut the large circle with the Circle Scissors Plus. The Circle Scissors Plus is perfect when the punches just are not big enough. You can cut a circle any size up to 6". You can also cut through multiple layers at one time. Simple adhear them together, place them on your glass cutting mat, and Circle Scissors Cut away. I then stamped the large flowers from the "Elements of Style" stamp set onto the circle in Blushing Bride. The bird and sentiment is from the same stamp set. I stamped the bird in Pear Pizzazz, cut it out with my paper snips and then mounted it using dimensionals. The sentiment is stamped in Early Expresso directly on the Whisper White circle. I punched a 3/4" strip of Blushing Bride with the NEW Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border. A couple quick layers and a short piece of the Early Expresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and I am done.
The coordinating scrapbook page uses the same circle and ribbon strip from the card. I then added 3 simple boxes for photos on the side. The squares hold a 2x2 photo. There is plenty of area if you want to put a title or some journaling. I love the simplicity of the layout. Now to find the 3 perfect photos to use. (hmmm 3 kids, 3 boxes, I think I know what to do)
Interested in doing scrapbook pages based on cards with your friends, book your workshop now.

Because I Care

"Because I Care" is one of this years Level 1 Hostess Stamp Sets. Anyone who places a $150 order or collects $150 worth of orders (before tax & shipping) can select this stamp set for FREE! I stamped the main flower image in Marina Mist onto Whisper White Cardstock. It is layered on Daffodil Delight and Marina Mist Cardstock. I tied a piece of Pretty In Pink Satin Ribbon around the panel and put in two strips of 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. The criss cross paper on the left is actually a specialty paper found in the Summer Mini catalog out right now. The various 12x12 papers are embosed with designs. When you put ink on the paper the embossed area repells the ink and shows the white embossing. You can roll ink, sponge ink, spritz ink, dag ink, dribble ink, spray the paper with smooch, or cover it in any other way with a water soluable solution. You can put as much or as little as you like. Use a clean tissue or clean sponge to help wipe off the unneeded ink and make the white shine. I used a Stampin' Spounge. I cut my spounges into smaller pieces for various colors.

Be sure to book your workshop and earn your very own "Because I Care" Hostess Stamp Set. You can pick from clear or wood mount. Want to stock up on all these wonderful new colors, order $150 online at My Stampin' Up! Website and you can select this as your Hostess Free Stamp Set.

Cards as Inspiration

I have another card and scrapbook pair for you. They feature some of the NEW FABULOUS COLORS. I am not normally an orange fan, but this Tangerine Tango just Tickles my Toes. I paired it with Daffodil Delight and one of the New In Colors, Concord Crush. Again I got the color combination from the Color Coach I talked about yesterday.
For the card I embossed the front base with the new Finial Press Embossing Folder. I simply put the front only into the embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot. The "Vintage Vogue" stamp set has been one of my favorites since it came out in the Occassions Mini Catalog. I was very glad that it carried over and is in the new Idea Book & Catalog. This stamp set has so many uses. One of my favorite types of cards to make is one with a use for everything. I used one of the sentiments from the stamp set, but you could just as easily put any sentiment on this card. I cut the flower out with my paper snips and mounted it on a dimensional. I then tied a piece of the New 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon (Daffodil Delight) onto a ribbon slide from the Silver Hodgepodge Hardware Kit. It is again mounted onto the flower with a dimensional.
Again I carried over the layout of the card to the scrapbook page. The long strips and diagonal square are featured. I stamped the branches a few times across the bottom strip. Since the embossing folder is only big enough for a standard card front, I didn't enboss the entire page. I also like my photos to be the star and generally keep my scrapbook pages simple. I added a large photo mat for a 6x4 photo. This layout could easily be turned on it's side or made into a larger 12x12 layout if you so wish.
Thanks for looking and come back soon for more projects featuring the new colors.

New Color Coach

This tool is fabulous!!
The New Color Coach (#121620) ....
■ Includes 55 double-sided cards with removable metal post fastener
■ Includes color theory cards and individual color swatch cards
■ On individual color cards, one side shows color, the other side lists coordinating colors
■ Card size: 2-3/4" x 4-1/2"

The cards have a nice sized sample of each color making them easy to use for designing projects. You can take the fastener off and use the cards individually or change the order. Some may like to have the colors in rainbow order, others may like them in Color Collection order. With the new fastener the choice is yours.
MY FAVORITE PART is the back of each card.
The back shows two color combinations for each color. With 40 colors plus 5 In Colors, that is 90 wonderful new color combinations to get your creativity started.
I tried to take pictures of the new colors against continuing colors. The photos didn't do them justice. The best way to appreciate the new colors is in person of course. Another FUN way to check them out is in the store of My Stampin' Up! Website. Click on "Explore Color" from the menu on the left of the store. Then click on "New Collections". You can then explore them all.
Each color collection has a card layout to play with. You can click on any of the colors at the top of the page and put them on your card. Need a starting place. Click on "Creative Combinations" below the layout. Two options will come up to get your started. There are two combinations for each color collection.
Want to see more of the New Colors, order variety packs of cardstock OR book a workshop with your local demonstrator.

Simple Summer Mini Cards

I have two more summer mini cards to show you and then I promise to show some new catalog things tomorrow.
For the first card, I used the "Tropical Party" stamp set and the "Island Oasis" Designer Series Paper again. I stamped each of the images onto Whisper White cardstock and cut them out with my paper snips. I mounted them on a square of whisper white punched with the ticket corner punch and matted onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock. The striped squares are from the Island Oasis DSP. The other side has small palm trees in various colors coordinating to the DSP. The palm branch is adhered directly to the white square. The flowers are up on dimensionals to give the card a little something. The sentiment is from my favorite saying set, "Teeny Tiny Wishes". This stamp set is perfect for year round cards. I could have just as easily put "Happy Birthday" or "Thank you" on this card.
The second card uses the Punched Posies" Stamp Set. The color combination came from the NEW COLOR COACH (will talk about that tomorrow). It features Pacific Point (returning In Color), Melon Mambo (returing In Color) and Pumpkin Pie. All of these colors are part of the New Brights Color Collections. I randomly stamped the images onto a piece of Whisper White in order to make my own designer paper. The sentiment again comes from "Teeny Tiny Wishes". It was punched out with the small oval punch and layered onto cardstock punched with the oval punch and scallop oval punch. The bottom edge was done with the scallop trim edge punch. A quick piece of Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon tied around the middle and done.
These layouts has many possibilities. A simple image stamp set, your favorite DSP, a quick sentiment and you are done.

Aloha Scrapbook Page

Yesterday I showed you a card using products from the Summer Mini Catalog. Today I have a coordinating scrapbook page for you. I used the layout from the card as a guide for the scrapbook page. The colors are the same and several of the technics are the same.

I used the scallop edge punch to do the So Saffron piece on the left side. I used the same sheet of Designer Series Paper, this time turning it over to use the flowers on the other side. I switched the ribbon to a wider grosgrain ribbon in Old Olive.
The "Aloha" title idea came on inspiration from another Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. She used the coconut stamp for the "O" on one of her projects. Again I used markers to color the coconut before stamping onto Whisper White Cardstock. I played around with the tree image to create the "A". The other letters were cut from cardstock using the Simple Letters Bigz Dies and the Big Shot.
I encourage you to look through your cards and see which of them can easily be used for a scrapbook layout. Be sure to check back again this week for more cards and scrapbook pages.

Summer Mini

I found some time over the last week to make a series of cards using new products from the Summer Mini and/or Idea Book & Catalog. The first one I wish to show you is using the Tropical Party Theme items from the summer mini. The colors used are carry overs from the old Color Families to the NEW Color Collections. In each catalog below the name of the Designer Papers it lists the names of the colors used. This makes creating your projects all that more easy. The Designer Series Paper "Island Oasis" lists Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Rose Red, and Old Olive. I used Rose Red for the base of my card and main image mat. The So Saffron strip was punched with the Scallop Edge Punch. Using Stampin' Write Markers, I colored in the Coconut drink stamp from the "Tropical Party" Stamp Set before stamping it onto Whisper White cardstock. I cut out the flower with my paper snips and mounted it using a dimensional. A quick piece of Pumpkin Pie ribbon tied around the piece of "Island Oasis" Designer Paper and we are done.
The items in the summer mini are only available until the end of August. All available Stampin' Up! products can be ordered by contacting me or online at my Stampin' Up! Website.
