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.

It’s My Party Suite

Hi,

I hope you enjoyed my cards I showed in our recent Pinkies Blog hop, using ‘It’s My Party’ Suite from Stampin’Up!  This suite is amazing and I LOVE IT! The stamp set has so many lovely stamps including lovely sentiments, everything you need to make gorgeous cards, whether for younger children or adults. There is also gorgeous Designer Speciality Paper (DSP) which is 12″ x 12″ so plenty to make lots of cards, boxes and gift wrapping.  Then there is the cute little Party Punch Pack which when you see them you will fall in love with them.  The great thing about them is that the stamped image is slightly bigger than the punch so when you punch them out there is no white area surrounding it – so much more realistic.

Here’s the first card I did in my blog hop participation, a Slider Card.

slider card pulled up slider card inside slider front

I taught this in two of my classes this weekend and everyone thought it was amazing. They said that even though it took concentration to make lol they really enjoyed it and would be making more.  This will be easier for them as I have made a video and a written tutorial for them lol.  You too can have access to the video and a copy of the written tutorial by placing a £45+ order with me by clicking on the products from the listing below. As soon as it goes through I will email you the video link and tutorial. Remember don’t tick ‘NO contact’ when placing your order, as I won’t be able to access your details so won’t be able to send the tutorial or video link to you.  Don’t forgot also for every £45 you spend between 5 January and 31 March which is Saleabration time, you can choose a FREE Product from the Saleabration (SAB) Catalogue. There’s stamp set, gorgeous DSP, embossed vellum and Project Life Cards.

Here are the products I used to make this gorgeous slider card.

We didn’t have time to make the other card, so we will make that one in next months class. Here it is though along with the products I used to make it. Again click on the products below to order from my online shop and if the order is £45+ you not only get to choose a FREE SAB product, but I will email you (once the order has gone through) a link to the video and a written tutorial.
