Decorating a file folder

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Canberra

I have to do some work this weekend plus lots of house chores. During a few minutes break I decided to quickly decorate my work file folder.

Decorating file folder bI did very little, just cut a piece of plain-ish pattern paper to fit the front pocket of the folder. I typed the name of the file on a small strip of the leftover piece, attached it on the main piece and added three die-cut leaves, and a button with twine bow.

Now I can work with a big smile on my face!

Personalise my Kikki K notebook

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I have loved pretty stationery since I was young. I got this pretty blue A5 notebook from Kikki K, one of my favourite stationery shops. While it is already pretty, I decided to personalise it so I can see from far that it is mine.

I used various Stampin’ Up! dies to make a butterfly (Butterflies thinlits dies), flowers (Botanical Builder framelits dies), and leaves (Stylish Stems framelits dies). I attached these shapes on linen thread and then threaded this through holes in the notebook.

Basket Bunch Notepad

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I wanted to make a little gift for one of my team members, Shabana, who often brings traditional food for us to try. I decided on making a notepad for her. I made two notepads, one in brighter colours than the other. I used the Basket Bunch bundle to decorate the notepad.

I chose the brighter colour for Shabana and made a mini treat bag to carry this notepad. I used white printing paper which is thinner than cardstock but thicker than photocopy paper to make the bag. Again I used Basket Bunch bundle to decorate the bag.

Personalised notebook

I decided to do one more craft item today before I go back to work tomorrow. I chose to decorate a notebook to use at work.

I didn’t do much, just piling up a few pieces of patterned paper I like at the front and adding cutie images on the inside and at the back. This notebook will cheer me up when work gets too busy.

Shaker bookmark – for my planner

Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all a year filled with lots of happiness and good health (and fun crafting too!).

I have started my 2017 with organising my new planner, first by making a bookmark for it. I used a very thick notecard (with letter B) that I got from Kikki K (free), Cherry on Top DSP and lots of sequins. On the back, I added flowers and leaves made using Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars framelits dies.

…and here it goes into my planner. I love that every page in this planner is made of thick paper so I can stamp, stick and colour etc. – yay!

Cool Treats Notepad

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I intend to be more organised next year and have started making a notepad for a fresh start of the year 2017. As January will still be quite warm in Canberra, I decided to use the new Stampin’ Up! product suite called ‘Cool Treats’.

cool-treats-notepad-a

I used white copy paper that is slightly thick (120g) for the notepad itself and Pool Party cardstock for the cover.

I wanted to place this notepad in my new planner, but didn’t want to punch holes in them so I decided to use a page protector to hold it. The notepad was a bit too long for the page protector and I had to trim about 1 inch off.

October notebook

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Canberra

I carried some office work to do at home this weekend. I was happy with what I have achieved today so I took a long break to do some crafting – but still work related. I made a quick & easy notebook to help me organise work items that need to be progressed or finalised this month. To me, a pretty notebook also makes work more inviting and enjoyable.

I used various stamps and stencil to decorate adhesive labels and placed them in a clear front pocket.
