We had fun this month creating many projects using Stampin’ Up!s line of Designer Series Paper (page 170 – 173). Yes, the ones that are buy 3 get 1 FREE all during November. Wahoo. We love FREE Stampin’ Up! product. The chocolate holder is a mini version of the one from the recent Paper Crafts magazine. This one uses a 5 inch square of the Holiday Harmony paper. The criss cross card uses double sided paper from the Simply Scrappin’ – Winter Bright kit. The file folder card is an almost direct CASE from our October demonstrator meeting. (Thanks for sharing Sue!!!) I love the Purely Pomegranate card stock with the Holiday Harmony designer series paper. I ordered more DSP, #1 because it’s only available through November and #2) it is part of this month’s paper promotion. The paper gift bow was made using Stampin’ Up!s Blizzard designer wrapping paper, again available only through November. It looks good all by itself and on the wrapping paper itself. A tutorial for the paper bow by Jessica Crawford is available at SplitCoastStampers – Paper Bow Tutorial.
I am having trouble getting someone to save the Excel spreadsheet into a pdf format. I am posting three separate spreadsheet files with this post. If I can get the pdf format available in the future, I will re-post. The first file contains the cutting dimensions for both the Bashful Blue and Pretty In Pink textured card stock. One file contains the cutting dimensions for the Real Red textured card stock. The final file contains the cutting dimentions for the Wild Wasabi textured card stock. You can easily make 30 scrapbook borders from only 1/2 of the Simply Scrappin’ Winter Bright kit.
Here is the information on the two additional classes for the Red Lodge Mini Convention:
3 Gift Card Boxes by Rhea Hughes 11:00 am – noon
In this class you will complete 3 gift card boxes each for a different occasion. Occasions will include Christmas, birthday, and any occasion.
