Here's a little mini book I did for Peyton to put on his desk at work. It's very simple, but I didn't want it too elaborate for Peyton's desk. The 4x4 coasters are perfect for mini pages with wallet size pictures.
I created a little book to help keep me on track for sending out birthday cards. I found the month template on Splitcoaststampers.com under tutorials and then just made my little book from that. I used the backer board from the Designer Series Paper for a little more stability and then covered it in paper, bound it with my bind-it-all and added a Kiwi Kiss scallop circle, some Flower Fusion Too felt flowers and some Pink Pirouette striped ribbon and now I have a cute little reminder. If you want your name in my little book, let me know when your birthday is ;)
Here's a little book that I came up with because I had an odd sized piece of Kiwi Kiss cardstock leftover from another project. I used the scallop edge punch and put a piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock for the center page. The front is Bella Rose DSP and Riding Hood Red striped ribbon. I think it needs something else on the front, but I love how it turned out.
I personally don't know anyone having a baby girl, but I love the brown paper with the little pink polka dots and it just turned into a baby girl card. I'm going to make one in blue and brown too.
All products Stampin' Up! Pink pirouette cardstock and ink, chocolate chip ink and 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, whisper white cardstock, DSP (designer series paper) from the level 3 holiday happenings bundle, I used the coluzzle to cut the layered circles.
I'm so excited to announce that you can now order online, right on my website www.bethanyschouest.stampinup.net. The buy now button is in the top right corner. All of the catalog merchandise is on there. If you have any questions or need help with anything, please let me know, I'll be happy to walk you through it. Also, if you need some suggestions on where to start if your new to Stampin' Up! products, I can help you there too. I'm pretty new to everything myself, but I can certainly recommend the things that I feel I can't craft without.
So I was right in the middle of uploading the pictures for the previous post and blogger pooped out on me and then my whole internet went down. Very frustrating!! Hopefully it will work this time.
Here's a shot of everything.
My first attempt at a bag-a-lope. I'm pretty impressed with myself.
A post-it note holder (idea from Angie Juda, another SU! demo). I used my bind-it-all. I also included a couple of pictures of Susan's kids on the inside and covered a chipboard butterfly and put it by their pictures.
Pop-top fruit can. I got the idea from my upline Jenay, I'm not sure where she got the idea from, but it's such a neat gift. I used my Pampered Chef can opener, and after giving Caroline the fruit and cleaning the can, I filled it with crumpled paper and some of the Flower Fusion Too felt flowers. My kids are going to be eating a lot of fruit now. I can't wait to make more of these. I couldn't resist decorating the top, it looked a little blah. Giant paper clip bookmark. I got the paperclips from Staples, actually Peyton found them for me, he's such a great guy to "support" my habit, I mean hobby. Sour Cream container. I first saw the idea on Dawn Griffith's blog.
All the projects use the Holiday Happenings Level 3 Hostess paper and Seasonal Icons stamp (flower) from the same set. Colors are Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip. I used the scallop circle, 1 3/8" circle, 1 1/4" circle, 1" circle, 1/2" circle, word window, trio flower, and scallop border punches. I also used Pink Pirouette and Kiwi Kiss 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon and I also used Whisper White 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon that I dyed with the pink pirouette and baja breeze stamp pads (my first time dying ribbon, it's a little darker than I would have liked, but I think it looks nice.) Misc. I used the paper piercer, mat pack, crop-a-dile, paper crimper and dimensionals. I would love to make these little goodies into a kit, we'll have to see. If you're interested please let me know. Til tomorrow (hopefully)
Here goes to keeping myself on the crafty track. I wanted to start a blog specifically for my crafty side. There are so many stamping and scrapping blogs out there that are a huge inspiration for me, and now that I'm a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator I want customers and friends to be able to see what I'm up to and maybe draw some inspiration from me. I'm going to try my hardest to post several projects every week. This first upload of pictures are a "secret goody" package I'm sending to my cousin's wife in MS. She's possibly interested in becoming a demo, so I wanted her to see some of the cool and cute stuff that can be done with our products. Most of these ideas are not originally mine, but the designs are. Enjoy!
