Photo fridge magnets

I have just had a chance to organise the photos we took during our recent holiday, starting with our last destination, Dubai. I love the photos of our daughter, Amy, jumping in the dessert when we went sand bashing, and decided to put them in fridge magnet frames.

The pattern paper used is still ‘Everyday Enchantment’ – love it a lot.  Paper I used as the base of the frames are Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, Primrose Petal and Pool Party.

I decorated the frames with hearts, candy dots and twine ribbons. Glossy accent was added to the hearts to give it some dimension and shiny look, but I haven’t mastered it well so it is a little messy and not thick enough – need more practices!

I also made some flowers using pattern paper and Stampin’ Up! scoring board, scoring at every quarter inch.

Everyday Enchantment Post it note holders

I got Stampin’ Up! paper pack called ‘Everyday Enchantment’ early this week and love it so much, couldn’t wait to use it. I started with making three post it note holders.

Although the paper pack is already retired, it is now available on Stampin’ Up! clearance rack (more than 50% off – how good is that!). If you like the paper, it’s good to order it quickly as it may not stay on the rack for long. I ordered mine through Deb Fearns.

I love the look of the scallop edge underneath the tear edge that I have seen on Pinterest, so I tried it on all the holders.

I used Stampin’ Up! ‘Really Good Greetings’ for all the words.

His & Her Christmas cards

Today I pulled out a beautiful Stampin’ Up! old hostess stamp set called ‘Four Seasons’, which I have never used, and made two cards.

His & Her Christmas cards 3

I started with the blue one (Stampin’ Up! Midnight Muse) and think it would be good for a male recipient. It is a one layer card, hence low-cost and post friendly. The bottom of the card was embossed with Stampin’ Up! ‘Stylish Stripe’ embossing folder. The sentiment is from another Stampin’ Up! old hostess stamp set called ‘Mixed Medley’. I used versa mark ink and silver embossing powder.

I modified it just a little for the red card (in Stampin’ Up! Raspberry Ripple), using silver glitter paper behind the sentiment, embossing the bottom of the card with Stampin’ Up! ‘Scallop Texture’ embossing folder, and making it a two layers card with Raspberry Ripple card base.

Craft box

While tidying up my craft room, I felt I needed a few more boxes to keep things together. I found a box that came with my husband’s blood pressure monitor, which is of good size and very sturdy too. I dressed it up a little. Here are the ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos.

The papers used are from various sources that I have been hoarding in the past two years, including the tan cardboard with corrugated ridges that came in the tin of Japanese biscuits!

Craft box 2

I sponged the edges of the papers with Stampin’ Up! crump cake ink to make it look a bit old, then decorated the box with a few flowers. The ‘God is Love’ stamp is from Stampin’ Up! ‘Trust God’ stamp set.

At the moment I use it to store my plain journaling cards.

Joy to the world

Christmas is not far away and I haven’t prepared any gifts to family and friends. I almost panic, but tried to convince myself not to. Well, at least I have made some Christmas cards (two so far, three including this one).

Joy to the world 1

I wanted this card to be a cheerful one and these are what I used:

  • Penny Black ‘Creative Dots’ dies to create holes on the blue background (Stampin’ Up! Island Indigo)
  • Lawn Fawn ‘Scripty Joy’ dies and ‘Harold ABCs’ stamps for the sentiment
  • Memory Box ‘Cosmic Star Set’ dies

Wishing you a lifetime of love & laughter

A wedding card & a gift bag for a friend of mine.

I chose to go with white on white (thought it is a safe option for wedding related items). I used ‘Taylor’ embossing folder from Couture creations to give texture to the centre piece.

Coloured butterflies (made using Stampin’ Up! ‘Beautiful Wings’ embosslit) were added to the card to brighten it up a little. The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! ‘Love & Laughter’ stamp set.

And flowers were added to the gift bag.

Be Merry

Today’s card is a Christmas card in non-traditional Christmas colours. Be merry 1

On the background piece, I first stamped a few circles randomly in pink (Stampin’ Up! Brushing Bride) then stamped over the top using Hero Art ‘Line Dot’ background stamp in brown colour (Stampin’ Up! Baked Brown Sugar). Be merry 2

On the little tag, I used the retired Stampin’ Up! ‘Warmth & Wonder’. (No any craft products in my craft room will ever be retired though.) The sentiment BE MERRY is from Lawn Fawn ‘Peace Joy Love’.
