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.

Change as good as a rest!

That’s what people say ‘Change is as good as a rest!’  Well I didn’t want to rest on my laurels but wanted to change the way I did things with my business.  So I’ve taken the very brave (some of you may say fool hardy hehe) decision to stop running my classes!

I had my last class just over a week ago and whilst it was sad, I know I will keep in touch with these lovely ladies and perhaps we will craft together in the future.

This is the card we made:  They had a choice of either having the cute doggy or the pile of pressies being pulled up the card!  Each have a hidden christmas sentiment that gets revealed as they are pulled up.  Great Fun and everyone loved making it!

If you want to make one of these cards here’s the products I used, just click on each item to place and order with me on my online shop. (remember to use September’s Hostess Code if your order is less than £150).  Use the Hostess Code and get a gift just from me sent directly to you by me to thank you. (remember I need your details).

 

Now I thought I would give you a heads up on just one of the new things I will be doing in my new venture!  I am so excited and I really hope you will be too and will continue to support me and join me in my new venture!

Firstly, I will be doing a ‘Product Share’ from the New Seasonal Catalogue!  What does this mean you ask?  Well in a nutshell, I choose a Suite of Products from the New Seasonal Catalogue, put a sample of the products from this suite (not including Stamp Set, dies or punches) together, place them in a strong plastic box (which you get to keep) and post it directly out to you ready for you to use to make your own gorgeous projects! How cool is that!   Examples of the types of products you will get:-  6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Cardstock, Embellishments, Ribbon, things like that, depending which suite I choose.

At the moment this is in the planning stage, but I would love to hear from you if you would be interested in taking part in this Product Share.  I plan to choose a different suite every month, so you get the chance to have lots of products at a fraction of the cost!  This will also help you try many of the lovely products before purchasing a full pack of say Designer Series Paper or gorgeous Embellishments.  It is very good value and a great way to get your hands on lots of products.

The first Product Share will go live Monday 2 October!

Email me asap if you would like more information, but drop back next week for the details of the first Product Share and more information about other things I will be doing in my new venture!

August Class Projects

Hi,

I held my penultimate classes this weekend and they were great fun if not emotional.

As from October I will no longer be running my monthly classes at Sue’s Crafting Place, Bishops Cleeve but will be doing online videos/tutorials so I can reach a wider audience.  My hubby and I are also starting a new adventure together with our family so this seems the best time to make changes to my business.  I hope you will continue to support me and may be those of you who couldn’t come to my monthly classes will now be able to participate!

Here are the projects we made this month, I hope you like them and as ever if you want to order the products click on the various products which will take you to my online shop.  Remember spend £30+ with me and allow me to contact you and you will get unlimited access to the videos for these projects and the PDF tutorial will be emailed to you once the order has gone through.  Don’t forget to use the August Hostess Code in order to receive a FREE gift just from me!

My inspiration this month came from Dawn Griffith, a truly inspirational lady and fellow Demonstrator. Click on the two links below to see her projects.
