The video will show… Read more »

Today’s Tip Thursday will show you how to make a Gift Card Holder with Belly Band, however it has a little ‘pop-up’ Gift Card Holder apeture inside which leaves you space to stamp and write your greeting.

I have lots of these spiral bound note books from various places so decided I should make them Stampin’ Up! pretty. This one was from Ikea and had a plain Kraft coloured cover which wasn’t very strong. So I covered it front, back and inside as well, all with It’s My Party Designer Series Paper. What do you think? I did remove the spirals from this note-book and clamped the pages with bull-dog clips to keep them in place while… Read more »

The other day I shared a briefly description on how to make these Candy Cane Reindeer Boxes with the Envelope Punch Board. I got this idea from a tutorial by Dawn Griffith. I had a couple of comments which indicated the picture I shared of where to punch made the instructions incorrect. So I decided to make this video. Measurements: Cut your card to 5 1/2″ x 6″ On the 5 1/2″ side score at 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″, 3 3/4″… Read more »

I just love our Envelope Punch Board which makes any size envelope you need. Wouldn’t you like such a product? Over the weekend a friend asked me to share some ways I use envelopes. I had seen our little Baby Bumblebee stamp used as a baby stamp, so I decided to start there and then make an envelope as a cocoon or pouch. I trimmed the wings and stinger from the body of the bee and coloured the stripes using… Read more »
