Let’s get organised

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

I went to Tokyo (work) in October 2012. On Friday night after work, we went for dinner and then walked along shopping streets nearby. The Minister Counsellor’s wife, who also loves crafts, showed me a shop called ‘Daiso’ where I can get a few craft supplies at cheap prices. I was still new to paper crafts at the time and hadn’t joined Stampin’ Up! yet. These were what I bought from ‘Daiso’ – each was 100 Yen (less than $2).

Punches & Brads

I used what I bought from Daiso, together with SU materials to make boxes/baskets to organise my craft materials.

Designer Series Paper box (This box keeps 6”×6” sheets of all non-SU DSPs I have. I am a DSP hoarder. Having a sheet of each DSP kept safe & sound in this box has helped me let go using the rest.)

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

I haven’t had much time to craft recently, so I will continue sharing pages in the ‘anniversary’ mini album that I made for Freddie, my husband, last month.

Anniversary mini album page 4

Yes, this was me several years ago – first year at university in Thailand. I remember that I couldn’t wait to finish my first year, so I could get rid of those white shoes & socks!

Stampin’ Up! items used: ‘Delicate Doilies’ stamps set, ‘Typeset Alphabet BigZ’ die, ‘Perfect Polka Dots’ embossing folder, ‘Itty Bitty Shapes’ punch pack, silver glimmer paper.

Anniversary mini album page 5

Yup! this was Freddie several years ago – at Mikumi National Park.

Stampin’ Up! items used: ‘Stylish Stripe’ embossing folder, ‘Typeset Alphabet BigZ’ die, silver glimmer paper, ‘More Amore’ DSP (retired).

Anniversary mini album page 6

Again, it’s me many years ago, but older than the one before. This was the year Freddie & I met, while studying in the Netherlands.

Stampin’ Up! items used: ‘Best of Brides & Babies’ stamp set, subtel designer series paper stacks.

Anniversary – mini album

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

I made a ‘anniversary’ mini album for my husband last month. Here are parts of the album.

Front page

Anniversary mini album - front 1

Anniversary mini album - front 2

Back page

Anniversary mini album - back

All the stamps I used in this album are from Stampin’ Up! I used ‘Heart a Flutter’ on the front page and ‘Trust God’ and ‘Kind & Cozy’ on the back page.

The majority of designer papers are from My Mind’s Eye ‘Indie Chic’ pack that I bought several months ago. I chose this pack because most papers look more masculine and the pack comes with matching journaling cards.

Some inside pages

Anniversary mini album page 2

‘Alphabet Typeset’ BigZ dies, ‘Small Heart’ punch, ‘Itty Bitty Shape’ punch pack and ‘Heart a Flutter’ framelit die were used on this page.

Anniversary mini album page 1

‘For the Birds’ stamp set was used on this page.

Anniversary mini album page 3

Although there isn’t much beautiful artwork in this album, I put a lot of thoughts and love into it. My husband loves it.

Thank you for stopping by & happy crafting!
