Regional Swap

Stampin Ups Regional is coming up soon November 20th to be exact.

So last week I started thinking what I could make here is just some of what I will be taking to swap with the other loverly Stampin Up ladies

I am only doing about 20 and they will have a tag on top 'for You' with a gold brad on it.

Here are all the things you need to make them

This is made using a piece of black cardstock 12cm x 4.5cm. Score it at 1.4cm, 4cm, 6.6cm 9.3cm. And the new Petal Card Extra Lge Double Punch creates the ends, it holds an incentive stamp and Jelly beans!

Here is my next swap

Still to have a butterfly attached to it.

Here is what you need to make it

I also have a card done, but no photo yet. So I will post that later, Thanks

Card Box Tutorial

Back in early September I did the ESAD New Catty Blog Hop. This box we also made for my Launch. So here is how I made the box

Box - 1 piece of Real Red Cardstock - 27cm x 21cm. Scored on Short sides 2cm from both edges and Long side at 12cm and 15cm. Add Sticky Strip adhesive as shown on Photo - on the right side, put it on the edge not in the centre. Note: The left side only just covers up the sticky strip. Repeat for the other side

Lid - 1 Piece of Real Red Cardstock 18cmx15cm, Scored at 6cm and 9cm. Add Jumbo Eyelets and Real Red Grosgrain ribbon to make handle. On the inside of the lid stick down the ribbon.

Also for the lid you will need a piece of Real Red Cardstock 17cmx2cm. Add half a Dimensional on the each end and two in the centre. Stick it on the inside part of the lid over the eyelets and ribbon.

Now add Sticky Strip to lid, DO NOT GO TO CLOSE THE THE EDGES OF THE LID, as the lid is slightly bigger that than the box. Also DONT GO TO CLOSE THE THE FOLD LINE. Now stick base to lid, just this side of the fold line works best

Decorate the box. The additonal lines on the box are done using a bone folder, which is opitonal.

Scrapbook Album

Here is a Scrapbook Album it is so easy to make. The idea comes from another crafty lady and can be adapted to any Double Sided Paper and Embellishments.

Take 3 sheets of 12' x 12' Double Sided Paper, Cut to 19cm x 30cm

Score on the short side at 1cm and 10cm to make pockets and stick together.

Using the 1" Circle punch, cut half a circle out from each end of all three pockets

Fold Each Pocket in half and where the fold line is make two holes with the Crop-a-dile, add ribbon through and tie and double knot and a bow.

With the left of pieces of DSP - Make 6 rectangles 14cm x 8.3cm. Corner all four sides and staple on some ribbon in the centre of one end

Finish now ready to add photos and decorate. Journaling and Photos can also be added to the Pull-out tabs, but dont make it to bulky

 Thanks and I hope you enjoy making this album, they make such great Christmasy gifts for the Grandparents.
