Jar of Love – card & gift

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka

Among the stamp sets and dies I have, the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars framelits dies seem to be the ones I have used the most. I shared how I used this bundle to decorate the post-it note set a few weeks ago. Today is a card that I made to match.

I stamped the Little Lime Twist cardstock using Marbled background stamp and using the negative of the scalloped square die cut as a mask to sponge the envelope. I placed the post-it note set in the black wooden crate and then in a cellophane bag.

Tabs for everything – labels

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka

I used the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set called ‘Tabs for Everything’ to decorate these plain white round labels. It was really fun to create and I am positive it will be fun to use too!

I used Memento black ink for the outline stamps, various colours for the solid stamps and Smokey Slate for the ground shade of some images.

Post-it notes in wood crate

I made the covers for a set of post-it notes of different sizes and colours as a thank you gift for a dear friend. I also made a wood crate to carry them, all fit in nicely!

I used Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight cardstock for the post-it note covers and black cardstock for the wood crate, and used ‘Jar of Love’ stamp set and ‘Everyday Jars’ framelits dies to decorate both the covers and the crate.

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.
