5 November 2012 – Wish List

Back to Christmas!!!  I needed to get a wish list up on the fridge so that I could let Craig, my husband, know what to get me for Christmas and vice versa.

Did you know that Stampin’ Up! have On Board Sheets of chipboard?  They come as 14.6cm x 35cm pieces and you get 6 in a pack for only $11.95.  You can cut them using the Big Shot or just with your paper trimmer.  I cut one in half and covered it in my favourite DSP, you guessed it, Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP!!

I created a word document of just lines and printed it out and trimmed it to fit.  I mounted it in Real Red and Gumball Green respectively and stamped a couple of images from Bells & Boughs stamp set.   I also printed out the heading for each one on Whisper White cardstock and used my other favourite framelit (Apothecary Accents) to mount it.  I did cut a couple of extra shapes to create an edge.  Then pop a magnet on the back and it’s good to go!!  Let me know what you think!

Stamp set:  Bells & Boughs

Ink:  Gumball Green, Real Red

Paper:  Whisper White, Gumball Green, Real Red, Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP

Accessories:  Big Shot, Apothecary Accents framelits, On board sheets, rhinestones.

28 September 2012 – Christmas Gift Box

There are lots of interesting new items tucked away in the new 2012-2013 Catalogue.  Each time I look through, I find something new!  I recently discovered the Kraft Gift boxes on page 161.  They are $4.95 for 4 boxes which is a great price!

I watched Patty Stamps video here as inspiration for my box.  I have used one of the new sticky rounds to attach the rosette to the top of the box which made it really easy to stick it firmly to the box.  I have stamped the box using Snowflake Soiree stamp set.  The greeting on the front of the box is Heart of Christmas and I have used the Apothecary Accents framelits for the shape.  You can’t see it well in the photo but I have put a Vintage Faceted designer button and place a pearl jewel in the middle.

Stamps:  Heart of Christmas, Snowflake Soiree

Paper:  Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP, Very Vanilla

Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green

Accessories:  Simply Scored, Kraft gift boxes, Scalloped Tulle Ribbon, pearls, vintage faceted designer buttons, Big Shot, Apothecary Accents framelits.
