More Covered Notepads

Notebooks

I’ve been working on covering more 3 x 5 notepads! If you place an order with me in April, I will send one of these out to you along with a thank you card! Use the hostess code below when you place your order and I’ll send your goodies off to you!

Hostess Code:  TE2QBSYT

I covered my notepads with paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Pack.  We have these paper packs in each of the color families.  The paper measures 12 x 12 and there are 40 sheets with 2 each of 2 double sided designs. My favorite design is definitely the dots!

In my supply list I’ve not only listed the Petal Potpourri stamp set but the bundles as well.  If you purchase the stamp set along with the punch, you’ll receive a 15% discount!

I used the Painted Petals stamp set to color the flowers on the note tag punch piece.  Using my Stampin’ Write markers, I colored directly onto the stamp. Not all of our markers are sold separately but Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry can be purchased individually.  I also used Bermuda Bay but it can only be be purchased in the Brights set (which also includes Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry).   The stems were colored using Garden Green, found in the Regals Collection of markers.

If you have any questions about the notepads or placing an order, please don’t hesitate to email me!

Quick and Easy Box

A quick and easy box to make is the 2, 4, 6, 8 box.  Its name comes from the fact that you score it at 2″, 4″, 6′ and 8″.

You’ll start with a sheet of cardstock measuring 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.  On the long side you’ll score at 2″, 4″, 6′ and 8 inches.

On the short side, score it at 2 inches.

Next,  cut up from the bottom of the paper, up to the 2 inch score line.  These will be your flaps.  Cut the small section out from the bottom right.

The picture below shows the inside of the box.  If you want a hole so that you can see inside the box, put it on the panel indicated.  Also, place adhesive (I recommend Sticky Strip or Fast Fuse for all of the areas where I indicate adhesive) on the flap shown.  Tip:  If you want to add DSP to your box, do it now BEFORE you cut a hole in the panel.  You should have (4) pieces of DSP that measure 1-3/4″ x 3-1/4″.

This is the outside of the box. I’ve shown which flaps you should add adhesive to as well as what order to fold the flaps in when you start assembling.  I’ve done it so that the last flap will fold towards the back of the box.

When putting the box together, I like to adhere the little flap to the opposite side first.  Then fold the flaps in!

Baby Sprinkle

Duck decoration

It was a busy weekend for me! As I mentioned last week, I threw a Baby Sprinkle for my daughter, Erin, on Saturday.  She is expecting her second child, a little boy in April!  I can hardly wait to meet my grandson! I haven’t had a chance to post to my blog recently as I’ve been busy preparing for the Sprinkle! Over the next few days I would like to share some of the items I made!

My first picture (above) has nothing to do with Stampin’ Up! but I thought it turned out so cute!  I placed ducks in small containers that I filled with blue pebbles.  I found this idea on Pinterest.

Here are the favors that I made!  We gave each guest hand lotion, hand sanitizer and a chocolate cigar wrapped up in one of our Tag a Bag Gift Boxes.  It all fit inside perfectly!  I used paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Pack in Pacific Point around each side of the box. The box comes with an acetate sleeve that slides right on so it isn’t necessary to use ribbon but I wrapped it up with a bow (non Stampin’ Up!).  Using the same paper that I used on the sides, I cut out a 2″ circle and used that as my base for the sentiment which comes from the set Painted Petals.

I also used My Digital Studio (MDS), digital software, for the Sprinkle.  I’ll share one of those projects tomorrow! Have a great day!
