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.

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.

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.  🙂

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….
