SU Picture Perfect Explosion Box Video Tutorial

March 26, 2018

Oh, I have been busy with the SU Picture Perfect stamp set lately.
I absolutely love the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper!
I decided to make an Explosion Box with it.
The first time I made one, I used a 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock but this one uses an 8-1/4″ square.

How would you like to see a video of how to make one? I think I am hearing Yes?

SU Truly Tailored Gift Card Holder

March 2, 2018

I was challenged to make a card using supplies given to me by my upline last month for an online event. If I recall correctly, I was given card bases of Night of Navy and Very Vanilla cardstock, a panel of Tranquil Tide Cardstock, various 3″ x 4″ pieces of True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, some Linen Thread and a button. We were to use stamped images from our SU Truly Tailored stamp set on our card.

I have to admit….I did not do it in the time frame,
and did not use the Linen Thread and button but…
I did get it done!!!

I made a gift card holder as my project.
I just folded back the front of the card (in half at 2-3/4″) and trimmed off the end 1″ of the flap
before I adhered it just on the top and bottom so the gift card could slip in.


Super easy to do and used the DSP in a nice coordinated way…what do you think?
I really love the colors in this DSP especially the bold ones I chose on this card.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

SU Merry Little Labels Corner Pop Up Card

November 10, 2017

Have you noticed the cute Merry Little Labels Bundle in the holiday catalog?

It comes with the coordinating Everyday Label Punch.

And the other sentiments “Special Delivery” and “Eat Drink and Be Merry”

fit in the SU Layering Ovals and Layering Circles Framelits,

They are really cute little labels that are so merry!

I was given the task of using the stamp set for a card and ended up using FOUR of them on this gift card holder!

 

You slide a gift card holder or some cash in the snowflake triangular pouch

and slip a little ribbon around it to shut it with a bow! Add a few little rhinestones for some bling:)

Put a little name tag on the back, too!

Now how did I make this card?

  1. Start with a square- this one was 8″ x 8″. You can make it any size.
  2. Score it in half on one side and then turn it a quarter turn and score again in half. You now have a square with a plus sign dividing it in four quarters.
  3. Now take the scored square and turn it so two opposite diagonal corners are both in the groove of your Stampin’ Trimmer and score from one corner tip at the top of trimmer to the opposite diagonal corner tip at the bottom of trimmer. Only score once on the diagonal. You now have a square with a scored plus sign and one diagonal score from two opposite corners.
  4. Fold on all the score lines so the card closes with the triangle scores folded on the inside and two non-scored squares on the two outside panels.  You can watch Lisa Curcio’s video HERE to see the folding.
  5. The Special Delivery is on one of the diagonal scored quarters. On the other diagonally scored quarter, you will adhere the folds together where the “For You” is located. You will also adhere the bottom of the flap where the silver foil snowflakes are so the gift card can slip in the pocket.
  6. Place a tag on the back to personalize the treat!

SU Blue Ribbon

It’s a Graduation Celebration at The Friday MashUp #108 this week, and it was at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pa, last Saturday for my son, Aaron. He finished his undergraduate degree with Honors and is headed off to law school in the fall. Here’s a photo of the very proud parents with him. As you can see, I could not resist color coordinating Jim and I since he had that Primrose-y Petal/Melon Mambo shirt from a wedding last summer….
