Handmade envelopes

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Canberra

I have so much work to do this weekend so I have to stop working on my project life album for the time being. I quickly made two envelopes to store the photos I already printed.

I used Best Birds stamp set and the matching Birds & Blooms thinlits dies to decorate the envelopes. I added also a few flowers using Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars framelits dies.

I may be able to do a bit of craft when taking a break from my work – probably a quick notebook!

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Mini notebooks

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Canberra

I made a mini notebook to carry around in my purse during my recent holiday trip to jot down places I visited, things I bought, favourite food I ate, etc.

mini-notebooks-a

I used six sheet of white paper size 5 ¾” x 3 7/8” folded in half for the inside, and DSP size 6” x 4 1/8” folded in half for the cover. I decorated the cover using Jar of Love and Everyday Jars framelits dies. When I came back the notebook was almost full. It will be kept in the album together with photos I took during the trip.

I find it useful to always have mini notebook in my purse to jot down ideas when they pop up. This other notebook is for writing down things I want done or changed around the house, what materials/tools I need and where to get them from. I decorated it with Always an Adventure and Love You Lots.

Birthday book – Part 3

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator

Birthday Book 15

On May index page, I used a banner stamp from ‘Amazing Birthday’ stamp set, a kitten stamp from ‘Made with Love’, Sweet Li’l Thing DSP and washi tape.

Birthday Book 14

I love most of the 2015-2017 in-colours, but didn’t like Delightful Dejon at first. After I used this colour in this project, I started to love it!

Birthday Book 16

For June index page, I used the letter and shape stamps from ‘Layered Letters Alphabet’ to spell the word ‘meow’. I always love alphabet stamps because I can use them to spell any words I want.

Birthday Book 17

Have I mentioned I love…love the ‘Writing Notes’ background stamp? Yeah, I love it very much and will soon try using it on cards.

Birthday Book 18

Shopping list fridge magnet

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator

My workshop today went well. Everyone who came was very nice and very appreciative of what I prepared. We had a lovely time crafting and chatting.

For the make and take, we made a shopping list fridge magnet and a matching envelope.

The notepad is 3 7/8” x 5 7/8”, the notepad cover is 4” x 6” and the envelope is 4 ½” x 6 ½”.

Here are the materials we used:

Cardstocks: Soft Sky, Real Red, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White

Ink: Soft Sky, Real Red, Pear Pizzazz

Stamp: Painted Petals, Butterfly Basics

Tool: Butterflies thinlits dies, Envelope punch board

Accessories: Doily, button, magnet strip

I have made also the other one in a different colour combination (Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe and Whisper White) just as an example. I like the first envelope better. This one looks a bit too busy in my opinion.

Notepad for my wish list

It is only about two weeks away from 2 June when Stampin’ Up! new annual catalogue (2015-2016) is live. I love so many things in this catalogue and need a notepad to jot down my long wish list (smile & sigh). I used an inexpensive notepad, found in many $2 shops in a pack of five, and dressed it up with cardstock, pattern paper (retiring ‘Flower Pots’) and a butterfly (Stampin’ Up! Butterflies Thinlits dies).

SU wish list notepad 1

I used little arrow post-it note (from Kikki K) to mark the different categories of my wish list.

SU wish list notepad 2

I also made a spare one. This notepad was made from scratch using unused pages of an old exercise book, cut to 4 1/8” x 5 3/4”, dressed up with yellow cardstock and retiring ‘All Bloom’ DSP stack. I also added flowers made using two sizes of circle punches (imitating the flowers on the DSP) at the bottom. I thought it looked a bit too busy so I added a piece of white paper with a message to cover a portion of the DSP.
