Fabricate Friday – A Funky Triangle Box

So let me tell you a story.  I have a wonderful friend named Lee.  She is very helpful and she is very kind.  One day she came into get her hair done and was so proud to give me a box.  It was really unusual but looked amazing and she said it was from a Chocolate shoppe in Las Vegas.  I was totally impressed and was excited to open it and receive a Las Vegas Chocolate.  Alas, there was no chocolate…none.  She had eaten it but saved me a box so I can remake it for you.  I shall now console you for not having a chocolate as well.  I hope your disappointment will fade as mine did when I discovered how really cool this build is.  PS Lee, if you are reading this.  Please don’t bring a chubby girl a chocolate box without a chocolate…this diet is killing me.

On with the show…

Fabricate Friday – Card Pack Box

Hello there.  I have made it my mission to really create with the “and More” part of the new Memories and More card packs.  I do not do pocket memory keeping and that is what part of the card packs are made for the other part is for…well, anything you would use paper on.

I really like using the paper for boxes and 3D items as it has more strength than patterned paper.  Today’s project however is not showing that particular quality, rather, I’m sharing the beautiful smaller pages and how they can be easily added to a rather dull box to brighten it up. Check it out.

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.
