Fabricate Friday – Lemon Lime goes with everything…

Hello there.  I have decided that the new In-colour Lemon lime twist goes with everything.  It’s like the colour that compliments almost everything.  I have not tried it with purples yet but that may be next.  Lol.  So, here is my sweet little project today and I used lemon lime twist as the base for the box.  The patterned paper is delightful daisy and, as I say in the video…it does not have any lemon lime in it but that colour sure goes well with the paper.  Check it out.

Fabricate Friday – Deck ‘o’ Cards(tock)

Hello there.  Just thought I would shine a little light on one of the tools that I use for design.  Years ago, Stampin’ Up! used to have a similar product called “The Colour Coach” and it was similar to what I use today except I use real card stock and I tend to pull the cards out and check to see if I like the colour combinations together.  Many times I take my cues from the patterned paper where the colours are listed but sometimes I just want to do my own thing.  That’s where this deck of cards comes in.  However, I needed something to house them all in so I thought that you may be interested in something like this as well.  Check it out.

Late Friday Fabricate – Rewards Package

Hello there.

This is my second attempt at this post.  Good grief, when stuff goes wrong it can really cause a panic.  I had a really busy day at work today and I couldn’t get home to fix the problem fast enough.  Thank you all for your patience.

So…anyway.  I hope you are well and that your week wasn’t too tiring. I did a quick video today showing how I decorate the FREE STAMP SET my customers get when they keep track of their online purchases with me using the Loyalty Program Tracking Sheet. Of course the paper and decorations change but this is pretty much what I send out. I thought that this may help you if you wanted to gift a DVD or a stamp set as well. Check it out.

The Details:

Cardstock sizing: 10 3/4″ by 10 3/4″

  1. Using the envelope punch board line up the left side of the patterned paper at 4 1/4″ then punch and score. Slide the paper to the left and score at 5″.
  2. Rotate 180 degrees.
  3. Punch and score at 4 1/4″ and again at 5″.
  4. Flip the paper and rotate one turn so you have your diagonal score lines on the right and punch and score at 4 1/4″ and again at 5″ (this is basically so you have the punches on all 4 sides and the scores all the way along the paper.)
  5. Line up the score lines with the score guide and finish scoring the square…no need to punch here.
  6. Rotate the paper and do the same on the bottom of the paper.
  7. Fold, burnish, and cut following instructions in the video.

Monday Makes – Blooms and Wishes One Layer Card

Hi there.  I am on a one layer kick lately, as you may have seen from my last few cards.  I do tend to really enjoy clean and simple cards and that usually is a one layer card (not always but mostly).  The thing that i love best about one layer cards is that anyone can create one if they have the stamp and the ink.  No other tools necessary.  I thought I would feature some new embellishments in this card as well so if you want a closer look at the brand new glitter enamel dots check out the photo.

Fabricate Friday – Love and Hugs Box

Hello there.  It’s Friday again and that means project time.  Don’t you just love that we can make our own little gifty boxes that we can use to brighten someone’s day?  I do.  I do try to announce when one of these boxes you can make ahead and then store away until the need arises.  This one today isn’t really a fold flat box.  However, if you omitted adhering the bottom flaps together it would be…so there’s that.  Anyway, I am excited to share this with you as it’s using one of the new cardstock colours that have just arrived.  I really like all of them.  Honest.  I would tell you if I didn’t.  I really didn’t like cucumber crush and I am kinda glad that it’s gone.  But this new cardstock colour I am using today is gorgeous.  Can you guess which one it is?  Check it out.

That’s a bit of tranquille tide right there for you AND the new patterned paper called delightful daisy.  I hope you like the video it’s down below.  🙂
