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.

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.  🙂

Fabricate Friday – Organizer Box

Hello there.  I have been working on a project that I thought you may be interested in.  I thought that maybe you may need something like this in your craft room.  The salon where I work offers clients tea while they visit and our tea caddy was looking a bit tired so I decided to make a new one.  Here’s what one of the boxes looks like.  I made 23 of them and then slipped them into a wooden crate I bought at Michael’s.  I show the full thing in the video.  Check it out.

Fabricate Friday – Fold Flat Box

Hello crafty friends.  I hope you are happy and healthy on this cinco de mayo day.  I am getting excited for the new catalog but I am trying to use up all my products that will soon be retired for good.  As much as I like hoarding paper crafting related things, it does not seem a wise business move to keep product that could never be used in a demonstration.  So, I have come up with a few projects to use up some of my papers.  This is one of them.

This project is such an easy build and I was inspired by a swap I got from a fellow demonstrator when I went to the Stampin’ Up! event in Calgary last month.

The Details:

Cardstock sizing: 4″ by 6″.

  • Long side scoring:  1/2″, 2 1/4″, 3 1/4″ and 5″.
  • Short side scoring:  1″ and 3″.

Fabricate Friday – Wood Crate Project

Hello my friends.  Today’s project is a cheat kind of so we will just call it a sneak peek.  What I mean by that is that the products I am using today won’t be available till June 2 when the catalog goes live.

I usually don’t do these sneak peeks but it was a project I got from when I went to the Stampin’ Up! event in Calgary this last month.  I thought I would save the project and share it with you.  If you like this 3D project make sure to jot the name down for when you get your catalog.  The name of it is WOOD CRATE FRAME LIT and it’s very cool.

That reminds me…have you signed up for your FREE CATALOG yet? If you have ordered with me in the last 3 month’s don’t worry about signing up as you are already on my list BUT if you haven’t chosen me as your demonstrator yet, and you are thinking about shopping with me…please click the picture or the link below to get on my list.

SIGN UP FOR YOUR FREE CANADIAN CATALOG

Obviously, if you already have a demonstrator please ask them for a copy as I do have to pay for these catalogs and the shipping to send them to you.  I don’t mind sending a complimentary copy to my existing customers or potential customers because I know that in order to have a loyal customer base one must invest to get them…however, I am not made of money (quite the opposite) so please be mindful of that.  I would very much like the opportunity to earn business the old fashioned way…hard work, great customer service and exclusive freebees, catalogs being one of those freebees.

That being said, there are some great advantages of being my customer.  I offer CARD KITS to everyone that shops online with me and uses the current host code.  This month’s host code is UHEWQK6B.  For more information about card kits, please click the picture or HERE.

One of the other big advantages of becoming my customer is my rewards program.  I have a whole page dedicated to this topic but what it boils down to is this:  If you consistently shop with me at a certain point you will get a FREE STAMP SET of your choice.  For more information about this program please click the picture or HERE.

 

I also wanted to mention to you that the retiring list has been out for a while now, and supplies are getting low on quite a few things.  I would like to remind you that if you are wanting to get some products at discounted prices you may want to pop by the online store and check out the retiring section ALSO new items have been added to the clearance rack and those items are going quickly too.  They have been discounted up to 60% off.  Ready to shop?

Ok, I don’t have a supply list today as this project was a cheat as the products will not be available until the catalog goes live.  So just sit back and think of the great projects you could create with this amazing new product.  Thank you so much for your subscription, your business and your friendship.  It really means a lot to me. Enjoy the show.
