Fabricate Friday – Envelope Punch Board Match Box

Hello and TGIF to you.  I hope you are headed into a great weekend.  For today’s project I would like to share with you a quick and cute box that is my go-to quick box to make.  I have made larger boxes like this but this one is pretty small.  The video explains it all so I won’t chatter too much here.

Cardstock sizing:  4 3/4″ by 4 3/4″.

Place your paper in the Envelope Punch board and move the left corner up to the 1 1/2″ mark.  Punch and score then scoot your paper to the left and line up at 2 3/8″.  Punch and score there and then turn the paper counter clock wise and line up the score in your paper to the score guide and punch and score.  Follow the procedure until the square is cut.

Patterned Paper Wrap sizing:  2 7/8″ by 5 1/8″ with approximate score lines at 1″, 1 5/8″, 3 3/8″ and 4″.

Monday Makes – Cool Treats Card

Hi, it’s me again.  I hope you had a restful weekend.  Now to get into the groove of crafting for those summer birthdays don’t you think?  I used the Cool treats suite and I will be really honest here, I wasn’t sure about this purchase.  I was like…ice cream?  Really?  However, once I started playing with it I found that IT WAS SUPER FUN!  I am not joking, it’s crazy the things you can come up with.  I have to suggest that if you are on the fence with this one…take the plunge it’s a lot of fun.  Here’s the card.

Fabricate Friday – Sparkle Pockets

Hello.  I hope you are having a good Easter Friday.  If you are celebrating Easter I hope that you have a lovely weekend with your family.  At the time I am writing this post my plans are yet undetermined.

Last week I mentioned that I was attending a Stampin’ Up! event and that I had made some treats for the girls that are apart of the team that I am on.  So here is the project.  I thought it was so cute.  I tried really hard to use up most of my glimmer paper or else it would be all for naught and I would never cut into it.  I think there are many of us that are like that.  So by chopping into that stack of paper I was left with bits left over that will make for a lovely (but small) hoarding.  🙂

This project is made with the Envelope Punch board and I have to say that it is one of the most versatile products out there.  If you do not have one yet please get yourself one.  It’s not just for envelopes.  In case you want to see what the Envelope Punch Board check out my YouTube Playlist.   Of course only check that out after you see the project for today.  🙂

Show and Tell from Onstage Local

Hello.

Last weekend I attended Onstage Local in Calgary.  It was a big gathering of demonstrators to celebrate the new upcoming catalog and to share some ideas with each other.  Thought I would share with you some new products coming soon (SHOW AND TELL PART ONE) and also some design ideas for your future card making (PART TWO).

Remember the retiring list is out and you may want to do a quick shop to get the products you have been eyeing up this last year.  Once the products are gone, they are gone for good.

The retiring list is out…

What an EXCITING TIME!! New products coming means…. we need to say goodbye to some products forever…. So get them BEFORE they sell out as they will be gone FOREVER.

CLICK HERE FOR THE LIST

I have heard so many customers that have told me last year how they missed out on retiring colours and they are kicking themselves that they didn’t get some refills or cardstock of their favorite retiring colours in previous years.  It’s definitely a shopping kind of day right (well, it’s dreary and gloomy here in Kelowna) but really any day is a crafty discount shopping day! Click below to shop now. Remember the host code this month is UHEWQK6B.

If your retired order is over $200 it might be a great time to consider joining. There is the brand new Eastern Palace that you could even add to your starter kit so you can get some new things with the old. Plus our pre-order for the new catalogue starts one month early as a demonstrator (which means YOU could be the one who gets to buy those products first). So it is an AWESOME time to join. Who wants a discount on new catalogue items??? I know I do!

Fabricate Friday – Handy Notes

Hello, I hope you are all well and doing wonderful.  Today I am driving to Calgary to attend a Stampin’ Up! event called Onstage.  This is a gathering of demonstrators from across the western part of Canada to share in the crafty goodness that is Stampin’ Up!  I get to meet new people, stamp a little, learn about the new products coming out in the new catalog and altogether have a good time.  A usual thing that I do at this type of event is that I make little gifts for the girls that are on the team that I am on.  I know no one from my team will see this till next week so I don’t mind sharing with you.  The other gift I shall share with you next Friday after all the girls have gotten their gifts. So this little project is something that one can throw into their purse and use as a handy note pad.  Doesn’t someone always ask “Do you have any paper on you?”  Why, yes…yes I do we (paper crafters) should always say don’t you think?  I do.

So anyway, I will try to post as many pictures as I can on my Facebook page.  I get so involved that I sometimes forget to take a quick pic.  There are somethings that I am not allowed to share and some things that I can. I may even post a shot or two of me having a milkshake at Peter’s Drive in or the fancy dinner my sister is planning to have with me.  Oh, and don’t worry about the crafting kitties Molly & Quinn, they are being well looked after by the daughter who lives upstairs.  I even pay her very well so she does an extra special job looking after  the fuzz butts.  Enough chatter, on with the show….
