Team Retreat Swaps – Part 1

Hi Everyone,

I had an amazing weekend crafting with my Stampin’ Sisters at our annual team retreat. We had some marvellous make & takes too which I will be sharing soon.

Part of the fun is making “swaps”; little gifts we exchange to share creative inspiration.

This was my swap… I made 50 in total, 10 each in the five 2018 In Colours. They hold these cute little bubbles.

I don’t make many 3D projects, so these needed to be simple.

Start with a 1-1/2 inch strip of card stock cut from the short edge of an A4 sheet.

Score the strip on the long side at

  • 4-3/4
  • 5-3/8
  • 7-1/8
  • 7-3/4

For those using 8-1/2 by 11 card stock, the scoring will still work, but will create a larger piece at the end for gluing.

Fold and burnish the score lines.

Cut a 4-3/4 by 1-1/2 inch piece of coordinating In Colour DSP and adhere this to the end of the card stock. Use the Tag Topper punch to shape the end.

Flip over the card stock strip and add more DSP to the 1-3/4 by 1-1/2 section.

Punch 1/2 inch holes in the last but one section of the strip.

Fold the card stock and glue in to place.

I used a sentiment from Wood Words and punched this out.

Don’t they look great all together like this!

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Wood Words Gift Set

Good Morning,

Those of you who follow my blog will know I am most definitely a card maker, but today I have stretched myself and made this simple matchbox to hold a tea light.

I have used Tempting Turquoise as the colour theme. This is a retiring colour. Of course, this can be made in whatever colour you wish… There are plenty to choose from in the Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

I used the large floral image was stamped to create a background.

The topper was made with a combination of circle punches and layering circles dies.

The sentiment was stamped first, adding the stars over the top with second and third generation ink.

The final piece was added to the card with dimensionals.

To make the gift box, I began by constructing the insert for the tea light.

A piece if card stock was cut to 3-1/4 inches square and scored on all sides at 1/4 inch. A die was used to cut the aperture.

The tray was made next. Card stock was cut to 3-3/4 inches square and scored on each side at a fraction under 1/2 inch. The insert was secure in place with a little multipurpose glue.

To make the sleeve, a strip of card stock 2-13/16 inch wide was cut from the full length of an A4 sheet. This was scored at 2-13/16. The next score was made 9/16 from the first. Continue until three squares have been created and cut away the excess.

The centre square was decorated in the same way as the card.

The end squares were adhered together with fast fuse to form the sleeve.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator! Be sure to check the latest deals on the clearance rack and the list of retiring products…. When they are gone they are gone!!

There is also an exciting early release bundle which is truly stunning. See below.

On Stage Swaps

Good Morning!

I had an amazing day at the Stampin’ Up! On Stage event. This is such a privilege; as a demonstrator I get a chance to see what’s new for 2018. You guys are in for a real treat when the new annual catalogue goes live in June!

Part of the fun is to swap little hand made gifts with other demos. I made these cute nail file pouches.

I used Fresh Florals DSP in Berry Burst. This was cut in to 6 by 1-1/4 inch strips.

These were folded in half and then punched with the Envelope Punch board.

Berry Burst Metallic Edge ribbon was tied around the neck of the pouch.

Really simple, cute little project.

I hope you enjoyed it.

Crafting Celebration – Team Swaps

Hi there,

Yesterday was a very special day. I spent time with my Stampin’ Up! family celebrating our successes and crafting together.

It is traditional to swap hand made goodies.

I gave away these nail buffers which I decorated with Tutti-Frutti DSP.

The paper was cut to 3 by 5-1/2 inches and wrapped around the file.

The Tailored Tag was used to cut Crumb Cake card stock.

The sentiment from the Fruit Basket set was stamped with Memento ink and adhered to the tag.

Strawberries were stamped with Real Red and Wild Wasabi inks. These were cut with the coordinating mini punch.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Petal Passion Sweet Box

Good Morning,

I don’t make many 3D projects. I find them quite tricky to do, but this turned out really well.

The box itself is a pizza style box made with full A4 sheet of Powder Pink card stock.

The card was scored at 1 inch and 2 inches on all four sides.

The long side was also scored at 5-3/8 inches and 6-3/8 inches.

The score lines were folded and burnished.

Each corner has four squares. The three outer squares were cut away. The remaining square was cut to form a tab.

The centre score lines were also cut in to tabs.

The Petal Passion paper was coloured using a brayer and Flirty Flamingo ink. Whilst flat, paper was added to the lid and the inside panels.

The box was constructed by forming the base first, then the lid.

For a snug closure a belly band was made with Powder Pink ribbon and some flowers from the Petal Palette stamp set.

The flowers were stamped with Memento ink, coloured with Stampin’ Blends and die cut the the coordinating framelits.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Foiled Gift Boxes

Good Morning!

I made another box, and this one is huge. The finished item is 6 inches long, 4 inches high and 3-1/2 inches wide.

The box base was made using two pieces of A4 Whisper White card stock cut down to 11 by 7-1/2 inches.

Score the long side at 4 and 10 inches. Cut away one of the skinny rectangles to leave a tab for assembly.

Score the short side at 4 inches. At the 5 inch mark, score only up to the first horizontal score line. This 1 inch section will form a tab.

Adhere the two panels together by overlapping the base sections. Fold up the flaps a secure with strong tape.

The lids used 12 by 12 sheets of Foil Frenzy designer paper. Cut one side down to 9-1/2 inches.

Leave a 1/16 inch gap when placing the paper on to the Simply Scored tool, then score all four sides at 3 inches.

The boxes were then tied with complimentary ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Triangular Treat Box

Good Morning,

These boxes are really easy to make in short space of time. No tabs or wedges to cut!

The only thing to work out is how big the final product needs to be which might require a little trial and error.

For my project, I started with a 10 by 6 inch piece of DSP.

The long side was scored at the halfway point, 5 inches.

A mark was made on the short side at the halfway point, 3 inches.

Using a straight edge and scoring tool, add 4 score lines by connecting the centre score line with the mark. The end result will create a diamond shape. Fold and burnish the score lines.

To assemble the box, bring together the sides and secure with adhesive.

Punch a small hole on both sides of the opening to allow ribbon to be threaded through. Pulling the ribbon tight will pinch the box closed.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked below.

Pretty Boxes

Good morning,

I thought I would share these boxes I have made to house some Christmas gifts. So pleased with them.

Sadly, the Year of Cheer DSP has now sold out, but the dimensions can be applied to any other card stock.

The box has been designed to be 3-1/2 inches cubed when complete.

For the base I cut card stock to 10-1/2 inches square and scored all four sides at 3-1/2 inches.

Each corner was cut away, leaving only a tab for adhesive. Bring the sides together and secure with strong double sided tape.

The lid is reinforced and used a full sheet of 12 by 12 inch DSP or card stock.

To ensure the lid fitted over the base, leave a small (about 1/16 inch) gap next to the left hand butt bar of the Simply Scored tool.

Each side was scored at 1-3/4 and 4-1/4. Cut away three sections, (an ‘L’ shape) from each corner and form a tab for adhering the box together. The lid was assembled by bringing the sides in first to make each corner. The additional tabs were then folded in and secured with strong double sided tape.

Copper Trim and Gold Natural Trim were wrapped around each box.

Matching tags were cut from the waste card stock using the Everyday Label punch.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Also check out the sale, some products have already sold out. The clearance rack has also been updated with some items significantly reduced.
