Moving Barn Door Birthday Card!

Hi,

Sorry I’ve been so busy this last couple of weeks with my gorgeous granddaughter and de-cluttering our home ready for putting it on the market!

I haven’t had much time to play but managed to fit in making this lovely card!  I used the amazing Barn Door Bundle from our Seasonal Catalogue (p43)!  It is such an amazing bundle and yes the barn door does actually move from side to side!  Just take a look at the pictures!

I’ve seen a few of these, using small washers for the moving mechanism, but I didn’t have any so I used the 1/2″ circle punch we sell instead with a dimensional between two of them (four in all need punching out).  This was so much fun and I can see this having so many uses, perhaps hiding a photo of your loved one behind the door, for an anniversary card, or a number to celebrate a milestone, the ideas are endless – perhaps you could come up with some.

I have decided to offer you a lovely free gift as well as FREE access to my own video which shows you how to make this amazing card.  Just order the Barn Door Bundle from me via my online shop using February’s Hostess Code and once your order has gone through(remember to allow me to contact you), I will send you a special gift and access to the video.

Don’t forget it’s also still SALEABRATION Time! So if you buy this Bundle and some cardstock, dimensionals etc, which total  £45 or more you can choose one of our amazing Saleabration products ABSOLUTELY FREE!!  How great is that, it’s a fantastic time to take up my offer of a free gift just from me, free access to my video showcasing how to make this wonderful card AND, spend £45 and get a FREE Saleabration product too!  Remember to use my hostess code!

Subscribe to my Website

Hi,

I am in the process of moving my business in a new direction, and I would love to have you all subscribe to my blog so that you don’t miss my gorgeous projects and can follow me and join me in my new venture!

As many of you know, I ran for many many years classes in my own home with a lot of absolutely amazing ladies, who came every month and made my classes an absolute joy!  I began to find that my classes were becoming so big and I was needing to do more and more classes each month, which in turn meant I had a lot more prepping to do for all the classes.  I kept getting more enquiries about joining my classes, so after a lot of thought and soul searching, I made the ?brave? lol decision that perhaps it was time to make some changes in my business and do it online!  I know every single lady from my classes was upset and didn’t want me to stop running the classes at my home, but I knew it was time for me to make changes.

So in the coming months you will see this blog start to change, but my name BB Card Designs will still be ‘me’ lol.  The picture above will be prominent on all my social media sites – youtube, pinterest, facebook, twitter, instagram, so if you see either or both you will know it’s still lil ole me! lol.

If you have already subscribed to this blog brilliant, but if you have subscribed but may be are not receiving notifications when I have put a new post up, it may be that you didn’t complete the 2-steps to subscribing.

Firstly, under the word ‘subscribe’ on my side bar there is a box.  Please fill in your email address and click submit.  You will then be sent an email to that address you entered, which you must open and click on the link within that email so that your subscription is then activated!  lol Honest it’s not complicated, lol.  You will then be told your subscription was successful, but I promise you I will not be bombarding you with spam, just honest to goodness amazing projects, products etc to get you crafting!

Now, again many of you know I have a Youtube Channel, well actually I have two! lol.  I noticed the other day, that I used to upload my videos I made to Sue Hall on youtube and I have hundreds of followers on there.  Now however, I upload them to BB Card Designs Channel, because my business is so big now I don’t feel I need to be known so much as Sue Hall lol.  Only problem is I only have about 8 followers to my BB Card Designs! boo hoo! lol.  Could I ask you, pretty please, if you can check which youtube channel you subscribed to in order to watch my videos and if it was Sue Hall, could you subscribe to BB Card Designs too?  That way, you will see ALL my videos, regardless of when I put them up!

Third Gift – pop up bin gift box

Hi,

Have you been watching my videos on the lovely gifts I’ve been making? Well, here’s the third gift, A Gift Box for a pop up bin I gave them all.

As a Stampin’Up! Demonstrator, as well as earning commission and discount on products we sell, we earn Flex Points.  We can use these flex points to buy some lovely gifts as well as products.  So I decided to treat my ladies to a mini pop up bin, made especially for Stampin up!  They were thrilled to bits with it! lol

Here’s the products/measurements I used to make the gift box:

FOIL FRENZY SDSP 9¾” X 9¾”

BERRY BURST CS 9¾” X 9¾”

½” BERRY BURST FINELY WOVEN RIBBON 15”

FAST FUSE ADHESIVE

SIMPLY SCORE BOARD/TOOL

PAPER SNIPS

BONE FOLDER

I used Berry Burst cs,in the video, but I also used Tangerine Tango, lemon lime twist and Tranquil Tide.  So just substitute the CS for your favourite colour.

Below is the video on how to make the gift box.  Unfortunately the filming is not great but I wanted to get it out asap.  Also in the video I stated the CS was 9 1/2″ but it ISN’T, PLEASE USE 9 3/4″ CS.

The images below once clicked on, will take you to my online shop to place your order.

Next Gift – Mini Treat Bag to hold Pendant

Hi,

Hope you enjoyed seeing the first gift I made my lovely ladies – the Pizza box pop up calendar, post it & pen holder.  This is the second gift I gave them.  The pendant was made by my lovely hubby, Mike, who loves making jewellery.  He asked if he could make something for each of my ladies to thank them too for their support to me and giving my life purpose. lol

So he made the pendant and I made the Mini Treat Bag to put it in.  (Think I got the easier deal lol)

Here are the measurements and products I used to make the mini treat bag:

MINI TREAT BAG THINLIT DIES

BIG SHOT

NATURALLY ECLECTIC DSP 6″ X 12″

EVERYDAY LABEL PUNCH

1x GOLD BINDER CLIP

4″ RIBBON (oops retired but can use any thin current ribbon)

TEAR N TAPE ADHESIVE or FAST FUSE or SNAIL

SILICONE MAT

Below is a video that shows you how to make the mini treat bag, and under that are images of all the products used, which, when clicked on will take you to my online shop to place your order.

These Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Dies are a great buy! Use them to make gorgeous Christmas Gift bags, using some of our lovely Christmas DSPs.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this gift, pop back again tomorrow for the third gift!

Farewell & Thank you gifts

Hi,

So I’ve taken a momentous step in my business,  in closing down my classes and doing more online, blogging, video tutorials, product shares and Team building.

I have been running classes, teaching like minded crafters as well as total beginners – well most of them were complete beginners lol, how to make some amazing cards and techniques for the past 6+ years.

Along the way, many of my customers have become great friends, so I decided I wanted to make some lovely Thank you gifts & cards to show how much it has meant to me to have them join me every month for my classes.  Some of them have been with me from the very beginning even before I set up the business, while I was learning my trade.

Over the next few days I will be sharing with you the gifts I made and how I made them.  I gave them out at my farewell lunch they organised for me as their way of thanking me!

The first is a Pizza Box pop up calendar, post it & pen holder.  It is primarily made from a pizza box which we sell and are in our Seasonal catalogue.  It is a great little box, food friendly, so you could use it to put homemade cookies in and gift wrap it for a loved one.  It will also hold our 3″ x 3″ envelopes so why not make some gorgeous cards and give it as a gift at Christmas?

 

Here are the measurements for the Cardstock (CS), inks etc I used.  There are images below the video with links to my Online shop for you to order any or all of the products. I used four different colours of CS to make 4 different coloured boxes.  So just substitute the coloured CS for the colour you like best:

1x PIZZA BOX (score box lid @ 2¾” from flap edge)

LEMON LIME TWIST CS 3⅜” X 3⅜” x2 (for top & bottom of box)

LEMON LIME TWIST CS 3⅜” X ⅞” x4 (for sides of box)

WHISPER WHITE CS 3¼” X 3¼” x1 (for bottom of box)

WHISPER WHITE CS 3¼” X 1¼” (for top)

WHISPER WHITE CS 3¼” X 6/8” x4 (for sides of box)

WHISPER WHITE CS 1⅝” x ⅝” (for Pen holder), SCORED @ ⅜”, ⅝, FROM BOTH ENDS

EASTERN BEAUTY STAMP SET

MARBLED STAMP SET

LEMON AND LIME TWIST INK PAD

TUXEDO BLACK MOMENTO INK PAD

TRIMMER/SCORER

BONE FOLDER

TEAR N TAPE ADHESIVE

TOMBOW MULTIPURPOSE GLUE

PAPER SNIPS

Click on the video link to see how it’s made.

Why not order some pizza boxes and have a go yourself?  Everything I used is listed below, just click on the image to go to my online shop and place an order.

If you like what you see, why not pop back tomorrow to see the next gift I made for my lovely ladies.
