Framelits Storage in Stamp Cases

DSCN1438Hi Everyone! My fellow demonstrators came up with this ingenious way to store the new Framelits line that Stampin' UP! launched in the Occasions Mini. While the framelits come in a storage pouch that snaps...who can resist paper crafting one's own storage! The Clear Mount Stamp Cases 119105 (4 per pack for $5.95)  and magnetic craft strips will allow you to make a basic storage case for the metal framelits.

I plan to make a storage case for each of my Framelits sets that the front shows me samples of what collection is stored inside. The Labels Collection 125598 are in this case and I used Sale-a-bration Everyday Enchantment Designer paper (I told you I was gaga about this! I should have called this Everyday This Week Enchantment paper!) The labels are made with Pool Party, Poppy Parade and Very Vanilla. The stamp is from Apathecary Art (125525 w, 125527 c). The stamp set has 4 label images that work with the Labels Framelits. This one worked perfectly to describe what's inside and make for a great journaling embellishment too.


 I was having a difficult time with the glare off of the insert of the case and used my SU Convention DSCN1439 Binder as a pretty well!

The stamp cases has a front sleeve that you can slide 7" x 10-1/2" paper into to make your own case cover. This is just like the note book case I showed in December. SU's double sided designer paper makes for such pretty covers. On the inside, I placed the instructions that come with the Framelits so I will always have it handy.

Happy Crafting!~ Dee

Adorning Birthday Card

DSCN1436Hi Everybody! Here's my mother-in-law's birthday card....Happy Birthday Marilyn!!! She just the best mom-in-law in the world:) and I'm very fortunate to have her in my life.

I used the new Adorning Accents Edgelit  Die 125595  as well as the coordinating stamp set and punch Mixed Bunch (w125535, c 125537) and the Blossom Punch 125603.

To make: Emboss the front of the card base (Very Vanilla) with Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. With Adorning Accents Edgelit, make edge. You will get the embosed 'extra' cut piece but don't throw away ;) Trim the extra piece by about 1/8" inch. We'll use it in a bit.

Cut a 5-1/2" x 4" piece of Everyday Enchantment Sale-a-bration Designer paper. Adhere to inside of card. Adhere the 'extra' strip to the right side of the inside of the card. Now when closed, you have this cool effect!

With Poppy Parade ink, stamp image and punch. Punch a flower with Poppy Parade card stock. With scissor snips, snip the petals inward DSCN1434and layer. With Beautiful Butterflies Embosslit, make butterflies and adhere with mini glue dots. Adhere Basic Pearl Jewels. With Very Vanilla, stamp sentiment (a retired Watercolor Trio sentiment used) and punch. Adhere.

Hi Everyone! Some Stampin' UP! news was announced at Leadership this past week and I wanted to keep you all in the know!
Changes in the Catalog and Mini Catalogs.In a nutshell, starting June 1, 2012, Stampin' Up! will release one annual catalog, comparable to (but smaller than) the current Idea Book & Catalog, and two seasonal catalogs, comparable to (but larger than) the current mini catalogs.

Annual Catalog

  • The annual catalog will run from June 1, 2012  through May 31, 2013.
  • The annual catalog will be reduced from over 240 pages in the current Idea Book & Catalog to 208 pages.
  • The annual catalog will be printed on lighter-weight paper.
  • While it will still be packed full of ideas, it will not be sold as an item for purchase but rather like any other handout catalog.

Seasonal Catalogs

  • The Occasions, Summer, and Holiday Mini Catalogs will be replaced by two seasonal catalogs called the Holiday Catalog and the Spring Catalog.
    • The first Holiday Catalog will run from August 1, 2012  through the beginning of January, 2013
    • The first Spring Catalog will run from the beginning of January, 2013  through May 31, 2013.
