Memorable Moments Magnets

Happy Wednesday Crafters!

Are  you looking for a great gift to give your child’s teacher as a sweet back to school gift?  If so, look no further than  your craft and laundry rooms!  What?  Really?!  Here’s a quick project that will make the teacher happy!

Here, I used the Memorable Moments Stamp Set (Wood #132039, $29.95 and Clear #126682, $21.95).

•I stamped the images in Versa Mark (#102283, $7.50) and

•Sprinkled on Black Embossing Powder (#109133, $4.75) and set it using the Heat Tool (#129053, $29.95)

•Then I punched out the images using the 1″ Circle Punch (#119868, $12.95)

•Then mounted it onto a bottle cap using Snail Adhesive (#104332 $6.95) with an extra Snail Refill (#104331, $4.50)on the side, just in case I run low!:)  As long as you have Snail Refill, you can easily switch out the adhesive cartridge instead of having to purchase a brand new Snail unit each time you run out. It saves you $2.45 by buying the Snail Refill!

Tricks of the Trade:  I mounted the bottle caps onto the small clothes pins using E6000 glue.  And glued the small earth magnets to the back of the pins.  Just a dab is all  you need to join wood and metal!  Hold in place for a minute or two to ensure it the elements are firmly in place.

•Then I finished if off by tying a piece of Linen Thread (#104199, $4.50) around each clothes pin.

Here are 3 different sets of the finished product.  I think the teachers will like them, don’t you?  Which set is your favorite?

 I hope this encourages you to use your supplies in different ways.  Look in rooms other than your craft room for inspiration.  You never know…you may just find something awesome in the laundry room!:)

Directions for 3-D Punch Art Camera Box

Happy Monday Friends!

Following are directions and lots of photos for the Punch Art Camera Box I posted last week.  When I made this at the LNS Pre-Convention events last month, it was one of my favorite projects of the week!  These may be a little different from my friend Kelly’s original design…but here’s what I came up with for the box itself:

3-D Camera Box

•7-3/8 x 9½ Basic Black Cardstock.

•Using your Simply Scored Scoring Tool (#122334, $29.95), place your cardstock so that the 7-3/8″ side is at the top and score at ½”; turn 90° and score at ½”.

•Then with the 9½” side along the top of the Scoring Tool, Score at 4½ and 5″.  Just cut up to the 1/2″ line in the middle of the box on both sides to create 2 center tabs on each side.Camera Box with 9-1/2 along top

Sticky Strip on Camera Box•Place Sticky Strip (#104294, $6.95 for 10 yards) along 2 (of the 4) 1/2″ scored panels as shown above.  Turn the side tabs in and place a small piece of Sticky Strip on the left and right tabs. (In the pic above, just place Sticky Strip on the side of the tab that you flip over.)

•Now to assemble the box, peel off the Sticky Strip from both tabs and adhere to the sides (without Sticky Strip) to form part of the box.Box assembly

•Then take the Sticky Strip off the side, fold in and adhere to make the base of the box. (Trick of the Trade:  Insert your scoring tool or bone folder into the box and apply pressure to where the box comes together.  This will allow the adhesive to make good contact with the cardstock.)

For the lid, cut Basic Black Cardstock 6-3/8 x 5-1/2″

•Again using the Scoring Tool, place the 5-1/2″ side along the top and score at 4″ and 4-1/2″Camera Box Lid

•Place Sticky Strip  along the edges as shown in the above picture above.  Get as close as you can to the edge of the cardstock and the edge near the 4″ score mark so that your lid will fit cleanly to the back of your box.

•For the camera strap, cut a 6″ (or longer if you like a long strap) piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (126872, $4.95 for 10 yards).  Apply Sticky Strip to the bottom 1-1/2″ of the ribbon and fold it over the ribbon until the two sides meet.  This should be a 3″ piece of Sticky Strip.Sticky Strip applied to ribbon for Camera Strap

•Now peel back one side of the Sticky Strip and fold in half (make sure to tuck it under so the raw edges don’t show).  Now pull off the rest of the Sticky Strip and adhere to the left of the box, close to the score lines.  Now peel off the two pieces of Sticky Strip and adhere to the back edge of the box.  To secure the lid in the front, you may use a bit of Velcro.Placing the Camera Strap on

•For the Punch Art Camera, you will need the following punches( right to left in the picture):

•Postage Stamp Punch (#122344, $15.95), from Basic Gray Cardstock

•1″ Square Punch (#124094, $15.95), from Basic Black Cardstock

•Petite Postage Punch from the Little Labels Punch Pack (#126881, $16.95 for the set of 3 punches), from Whisper White Cardstock

•2-1/2″ Circle Punch (#120906, $16.95), from Basic Gray Cardstock

•2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch (#118874, $16.95), from Basic Black Cardstock

•1-3/4″ Circle Punch (#119850, $16.95), from Whisper White Cardstock

•Petite Curly Label Punch (#129405, $12.95), from Basic Gray(cut in half) and Whisper White Cardstock. Assemble as shown (back view):Back of Petite Curly Label

•Modern Label Punch (#119849, $16.95), from Basic Black Cardstock

•1-1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch (#127881, $15.95), from Basic Gray Cardstock (only half needed)


Put together as shown in the picture, using Stampin’ Dimensionals as desired.Camera Box Punch Art Pieces

3-d Camera Box for Summer Travels

Greetings Crafters!

Here’s a 3D Punch Art Camera Box that I re-created from a fabulous idea that I got from my LNS friend, Kelly.  I am in the process of making it into a pull out scrapbook holder so that it could hold a small scrapbook for 4 x 6″ pictures from our summer travels.  But the original design is hers.  I think it is adorable!

Included in the camera box are 4 note cards that can be mailed on the trip itself…then when you get home, simply replace the note cards with a pull out scrapbook for your pictures.  My monthly Hostess Group loved it!

3-D Camera Box

I think this camera box and note card set is perfect to use with any of the line of fun travel themed stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!:

Framelit Cardstock Purse with Matching Note Cards

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

Today, I am posting a recent project that I made with my hostess group last week.

 We used Pool Party Core’dinations Cardstock (#129321)Cardstock Purse from Framelits  and Tea For Two Designer Series Paper (#129311)

Here are the supplies so you can re-create this cutie at home:

-12″ x 6″ Core’dinations Cardstock

-5-½” x 7-½” Matching Cardstock

-½” x 3-7/8″ Matching Cardstock, scored at 1″, 1-½”, 2-½”, and 3″

2 pieces of 4″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper

-4 Matching Brads, 2 pieces of 11″ Ribbon and ½ of a self adhesive Velcro circle.

-Adorning Accents Edgelits (#125595, $9.95)

-Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (#125601, $8.95)

-Stampin’ Trimmer (#126889, $29.95), Simply Scored Tool (#122334, $29.95), Big Shot (#113439, $99.95), Sticky Strip (#104294, $6.95 for 10 yards)Paper Piercing Tool (#126189, $3.95) and Cute Clips-Elements(#129939, $4.95)

1. Cut the Cardstock for the purse base (6″x12″), and then score at 5-½”, 6″ and 6-½”.

2.  Cut your other cardstock pieces at (5-½” x 7-½”) and (½” x 3-7/8″), it will look something like this (below) with the leftover piece on the bottom right:

cardstock for Framelit Purse3.  Fold the 6″ x 12″ cardstock in half along the 6″ score line.  Place the free edge (not the folded edge) on the actual cutting line of your Stampin’ Trimmer.  Hold in place.

4.  Then place the folded edge on the 5/8″ line on the outside of the cut line.  Then cut off that small triangle that will make the bottom of the purse a bit smaller than the top.  Flip over and repeat on the other side. (See cardstock placement on the Stampin’ Trimmer  below.)

5. While still folded in half, place the Adorning Accents Edgelit along the free edge (not the folded edge).  Carefully line it up and run it thru the Big Shot. (See pic below)

**Trick of the Trade-Place a sticky note on either side to hold the Edgelit in place to prevent slipping as it goes thru the Big Shot.

Alignment for Edgelit

6.Use the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder underneath the Edgelit cut.

7.  Cut 2 pieces of 4″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper of choice.  Stack both pieces together and run the thru the Big Shot using the Adorning Accents Edgelits (and a piece of sticky note to hold in place).

Placement of DSP on Purse8.  Adhere DSP to the purse base using SNAIL adhesive.  Using your SNIPS, cut off the overhang even with the cardstock. (see pic on the left)

9.  Using your Paper Piercing Tool, make 2 holes along the top edge of your purse. (for the brad to go thru to attach the ribbon handles) Repeat on the other side.

10. Use SNAIL to adhere the edge of the ribbon onto itself.  Poke the brad thru the bottom of ribbon and insert into the hole you made in Step 9.

11.  To make the box to hold the note cards:  Take your piece of 5-½” x 7-½” cardstock that you already cut and score it at 1″ and 4-½” (with the 5-½” side at the top of your Simply Scoring Tool.

12.  Turn the cardstock so that the 7-½” side is at the top and score at 3-¼ ” and 4-¼ “.

13.   Fold all score lines well using a Bone Folder.  Cut just the center score lines up to the 1″ score line on the sides.  Cut a small triangle out of the side that is to the left of the center flap.  Turn the box and repeat on the other side.  This makes for a nice fit once the box is assembled…without the extra bulk.

score lines and sticky strip

14.  Apply Sticky Strip on the right top flap and bottom left flap.  Turn the middle flaps up and place Sticky Strip there, too.

15. Peel off the Sticky Strip and assemble one side of the box making sure to tuck in the flap that has the triangle cut out of it.  Square it up and press together.

16.  Repeat on the other side; however on this side you will now insert (toward the middle…picture below was a trial and error!:) ½” of the strip of cardstock into the side flap and press down to seal.  Wrap the piece along the score lines and adhere with a piece of Sticky Strip on the outside of the box.  This will hold a pen in the purse.

side of pen holder17.  Apply Stick Strip to ONE wide side of the box (near the top) and on the bottom of the box.  Then, peel off the red liner of the Sticky Strip from the bottom of the box and adhere in the center of the purse.   Next, peel of the red liner from the back of the box and adhere to the back of the purse.

**Trick of the Trade**  Put 1/2 circle of Velrco on the front of the box (with both sides of the Velcro attached to each other).  Then close the purse, adhering the other side of the Velcro to the front inside of the purse.

18. Now decorate with a coordinating flower and a cute Clip.  Insert a piece of matching Designer Series Paper into the Pen and screw it back together.  Insert the pen into the slot!  Insert matching 3×3 note cards in the box and give away to a special friend! (see the matching note cards on tomorrow’s post)

Mother’s Day Gifts and Gift Card Holders

Happy Early Mother’s Day Friends!

I wanted to wish you all the best a couple of days early, just in case I’m not able to send the message this weekend.  Today, I thought I would show you what I made for the mother, mother-in-law, and grandmothers-in-law in my life.

Gift Card Holder PurseDo you ever wonder what to get these special women in your life, especially if they don’t live close to you?  Maybe you struggle with it because you want to shower your mom with the BEST.  Maybe you want to show up your siblings (LOL!:) or maybe you want to make up for anything rotten you’ve done this past year.

Here’s the perfect little purse to make to hold a gift card.  It’s perfect because:

-It is easy, it fits inside a medium A2 envelope, and best of all…you can get it in the mail today!:)

You will need :

-6×6″ piece of Designer Series Paper (a.k.a DSP) (here I used the sneak peek paper from the upcoming 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! catalog (let me know if you need a copy!:) called Gingham Garden #129310, 12 double sided sheets for $10.95).  Fold in half.

-Top Note cut out from the Top Note Bigz Die (#113463). Scored at 1/4″ on both sides of the mid point.

-Large Pearl (#125577, 40 for $4.95), Medium Envelope (#107301, 40 for $6.50) and 8 inches of matching Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (#126872, 10 yards for $4.95)

-Sticky Strip (#104294)Small Cellophane Bag (#102757, 50 for $4.50), a small piece of cardstock (to stamp your sentiment on; I used Delightful Dozen Stamp Set, which has sentiments for lots of holidays)Inside Purse and 1/2 circle of self-adhesive Velcro.

Take the fold of your DSP and place it on the cutting line of your trimmer.  Angle the free edge and place on the 1″ mark of your trimmer and cut.  Repeat on the other side which will cut off 2 small triangles from the purse.

Then cut off 1/4″ off on either side of the fold.  This will allow your purse to fit into a medium envelope because it should now measure 5-1/2″ long.

Punch out 2 holes for the ribbon handles.  Feed the ribbon thru the holes and tie a nice knot on the inside to keep it in place.  Adhere your top note piece to the purse using Sticky Strip across the back.

Cut your small cello bag in half and adhere to the bottom of the purse using sticky strip. (your gift card will fit perfectly inside the bag!)  I inserted a piece of cardstock (in Melon Mambo with a Daffodil Delight punched out circle) so that I could place the gift card on it.  It can be pulled out with ease!

Add a small piece of Velcro to seal up the purse.  Trick of the Trade:  I like to cut off some of the loops (from what some call the “furry” side) so that it isn’t too hard to pull apart when closed.  To adhere it perfectly to your project, put the 2 sides together, pull off the backing from both sides and put it on the one side where you want it.  Then close the flap.  The other side will be perfectly aligned exactly where you want it!:) 

I hope you make lots of these adorable purses!  I’m sharing this with you because my mom shared it with me.  Thanks Mom!:)
