Stamp Club Projects

Each month since I became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - that's nearly 5 years!! - I have held a Stamp Club meeting. If you are new to the Stamp Club idea, it's a regular group of stampers that commit to spending a certain amount each month, for a certain amount of time, and in return, we get together and make 3 or 4 projects. I supply all of the products needed, they just come along and have fun! We try out different techniques, learn new ways of using current products, try out current products, and have some adult time. Each time we go home with usable gifts/gift packaging/scrap pages/cards and/or techniques. I encourage my girls to join in on the card challenge I set each month, and we have our own group facebook page where we can chat, ask questions, share our creations and our lives.
This month we learnt a new way to use the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes that are on pages 158 and 159 of the current annual catalogue. I love these boxes, so very versatile and they are food safe! Here are our projects:

And here they are individually:

This one measures 3" x 2.5" x 2.5".

This one measures 4.5" x 2.5" x 2.25".

This one measures 3.5" x 2.5" x 2.25" - what is suprising, is that inside the acetate sleeve are two little boxes....

....each one measures 1.75" x 2.5" x 2.25"

And here is our full-size box decorated similar to the cut-down one above. The belly band is actually one of our Tag a Bag Gift Bags with the bottom cut off and slipped over the acetate sleeve, with a small strip of sticky strip down one side, it fits perfectly!

Here is the video that Stampin' Up! put on their Youtube channel recently, it has all of the measurements and instructions on how to make these little boxes for yourself, but if you would like to catch up, I am happy to show you how to make them too!

To get the supplies to make these for yourself, head to my store or contact me and I will place the order for you.
Until next time,

Photopolymer Now Available!!

We've searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we've found it! We're excited to announce that with the release of the upcoming 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue, we will have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps. Our top-quality photopolymer stamps stick extremely well on our acrylic blocks, are durable, and the transparent nature of these sets makes it easier to line up your images without the need of a guide. This is a feature that is particularly helpful with alphabets, borders, and backgrounds! Photopolymer is clearly a great choice.
 Will you want to wait until the catalogue comes out to try this great new product? Of course not! So, beginning 1 May, we are introducing two exclusive photopolymer stamp sets: Show & Tell 1, and Show & Tell 2. These great new photopolymer sets are designed to be used together. Even better, you can order both sets in a bundle that comes with an amazing online class-featuring tons of great project ideas using Show & Tell 1 and 2.

Our online class, "Seeing the Possibilities," provides all the basics you need to make the most of our new photopolymer stamp offerings: Show & Tell 1 and 2 Stamp Sets. Purchase the bundle and discover how quickly and easily you can line up the stamped images for precision placement with the free online class. Achieve just the right ink coverage and combine images together exactly where you want them with photopolymer. The possibilities are endless!

Divided into six PDF documents, this class includes written instructions, step-out photos, instructional videos, and supply lists for 15 projects.
The following topics are covered in the class:

  • Backgrounds
  • Building
  • Layering
  • Versatility
  • Gift Giving
  • Memory Keeping
The class and the stamps are only available until May 31 - if you have ever wanted to try Photopolymer with Stampin' up!, NOW is the time to do it! This is an early introduction to our Photopolymer collection which will be available in our upcoming catalogue.
