I have a third Christmas Planner for you that can again be adapted as a Wedding Planner, Trip Planner, Family Reunion Planner, etc. I just completed teaching this class at Scrapbook Essentials BC, and can now post the instructions for sale!
These are the photos of the planner made for a class (see my post from my Aspiring to Creativity blog).
To create the written instructions I used a different paper to create a Trip Planner, so you will not see these papers in the instructions.
To purchase these instructions -
Thank you for stopping by to check out the new 2016 Christmas Planner!
Many of you know that I like to create cards that fit into the size 10
business envelopes as a different size and shape for a card. My samples
on the size of card was building up, so I thought why not make a box
that will hold a few of them! I have six cards in my box, but then some
of them have one or more popped up layers to them. If you don't do that
then the box will hold a few more than six cards.
It has a magnetic closure (three magnets).
I had fun stamping the top piece using the Stampin' Up! stamp set "Number of Years" in neutral colours.
If you are wondering about the corner protectors, I purchased them from ButterBee Scraps.
On the inside of the lid I used the Stampin' Up! stamp sets"Number of Years" in the corners, "Layered Letters" and "Tin of Cards" stamp sets.
To access the cards in the box, just flip open the flaps!
This box uses three sheets of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock, and 1 or 2 sheets of 12 x 12 DSP, depending on the pattern.
CARD BOX - BUSINESS SIZE 10
Here is the box created for the instructions, without any stamping and embellishing.
Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you all will find a little time
for yourself to papercraft this weekend! I know the weather is beautiful
out there now, but maybe you can set up a little station out side to
These and other instructions can be found on my "Project List & Links" page at the top of the blog.
I've been working on several albums of late, and am enjoying the
projects. The one I'm showing you today was a bit of an experiment using
only neutral colours in Basic Gray, Sarah Sand, Crumb Cake, Very
Vanilla, and a black cover using a non-Stampin' Up! product called Kraft-Tex.
Its a paper/fabric which doesn't tear or crack with use, as cardstock
can. That's why I used this product. I did learn a few things in using
this product, and will have to adjust thow I use it for an album cover
Any way, let's get to having a look at the
album, shall we. As you can see I left the cover plain with no
embellishment, just the ribbon closure.
When the album is opened, this is what you see.
will notice the 'Botanical Builder' dies were used in the album.
Everything was cut from Crumb Cake. I love how it looks! Who'd have
thought that it would look great in Crumb Cake of all things! But then
it is a fabulous die set.
you lift the top flap you see this. Oh, I should mention that I used
another couple non-Stampin' Up! products through out the album, some
older Project Life (pre-Stampin' Up!) cards because they coordinated
with the colours of the album. Some of these I cut down or punched. The
others are some chipboard laser cuts that I had purchased a few years
ago form the store where I used to teach classes at.
The square on the upper right corner I created with several different Stampin' Up! Project Life stamp sets.
Close up - see the subtle Versamark text stamping...
Close up of the stamped square (sorry it's not real clear).
Another gate fold section to the album.
you open that up, there is a place on the left for a larger phtoto
(left), a place for a 4 x 4 photo to slide into a frame, and a booklet
that opens up when you untie the twine.
When you open this booklet you can either journal inside or place additional photos.
to the center, when you open up the larger booklet, there are pages
with sections for journaling, and places to make up a mini layout of
photos, or use one very large page sized photo.
Turn the page...
Turn the page again...
when you flip the page that the book is attached to, you find this.
There's a place for a 5 x 7 photo. Oh, I guess I should have mentioned
that all these Botanical Builder parts are attached so that the photo
can slide in behind them, have a part of the floral arrangement over the
corners of the photos.
when you flip that last flap in the album, there is room for another 5 x
7 or and arrangement of smaller photos within the designated areas.
Close up for detail.
Last close up.
I wish the photos showed more what the album really looks like, because it looks much better in real life. I hope that you enjoyed seeing this any way, and are inspired for the next album or scrapbook page you create.
All these albums I'm currently making will all be for sale at future classes, crops, and markets.
If you are interested in buying this album before I get it out in the public, don't hesitate to contact me (email@example.com).
you are interested in knowing more about Kraft-Tex, here is a video I
found. It's great stuff with many applications and uses.
Thank you for stopping by today, and happy creating!
I will begin today with an apology. I am sorry to say that due to my circumstances I will not be able to create instructions for more projects, including the one that I mentioned in the last post. I am sincerely sorry, but health issues keep me from being able to do that for you. I still create projects, and maybe will sell the completed projects rather than instructions. I miss being able to have instructions for you and am hoping a time will come when I can once again provide instructions for you.
In the mean time I am going to share some
photos taken of a very special gift set that I made.
I took an empty CostCo Christmas treat box that has front magnetic closures and covered the box inside and out with Stampin' Up 'Timeless Elegance' DSP.
I used the 'Ornate Tag Topper' punch on both ends of the black cardstock to create the box label. From the side you can see the secondary exterior paper.
this next photo you see the interior, and the fact that I had to add
magnets to the flap because with the store paper layer and then my own
on top of it, the magnets needed some help to close the flap. In
the center I created a long box dividing the space into two sections.
This box is meant to hold pens and such. At the back end of the pen
compartment you'll see a tiny box. I created this to hold stamps, a roll
is the little stamp box. It measures 1 3/4" square, by 1 3/4" high. I
used the Word Window punch to make the little 'stamps' tag.
you see a dozen 3 x 3 cards made for the Card Box Gift Set. (I'm not
showing them individually, but if you click on the photo, you can see
the image a little larger to get a better look at them.)
Here are 14 tags that I made real quick to try and coordinate with the cards made for last year's card classes.
are 14 cards in this gift set, so I had to split the pile into two. You
will recognise these cards from last year's classes and postings.
The first seven cards...
The next seven cards...
all of the cards out of the box, you can see that rather than make a
box for each section, I wanted to see the DSP without having to cover
all the boxes with more DSP. So I decided to hold the cards in their
sections by just attaching ribbon on the bottom and tying them around
each stack of cards.
A closer look at the ribbon ties.
