Announcing: Print Poetry Stamp Camp & Class by Mail!

I recently had the idea to put on a joint stamp camp with a couple of the fabulous gals in my Fun n’ Crafty team.  So, we got together, designed some projects, figured out the details, and now I’m super excited to share what we created with you!

Everything Eleanor Card Box

If you can’t tell, I love making cards. 🙂  But between class samples and playing around with my stamps and tools, I often end up with more cards than I need at a given time.  Which means I need a way to store them and what better way than a cute box on my shelf?  So, here is a new box I’ll be using that I made recently with the Everything Eleanor stamp set.

 

This was super easy to make (just a single piece of cardstock scored and folded up into the box); but my favorite part is the ribbon flower in the middle of the front.  It is just sticky strip laid down in the middle of the scallop circle and then twist the Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon to look kind of like a rope as you spool it around into a circle on top of the sticky strip.  Doesn’t it look perfect in the middle of the circle stamp from the set?

 

We’ll be making this as part of my card stash class on Friday July 6th.  So, if you are in the Seattle area and want to come make it, let me know at jennifer@nwstamper.com and I’ll get you all the details!

Stamp-a-stack door prize!

So, tonight is part 2 of our holiday stamp-a-stack.  It should be a laid back evening where folks can leisurely finish up their cards and have the chance to play with any of my supplies.  Tonight is also when I hand out the door prize!  The door prize for tonight is a box to hold all of the cards and envelopes we made!  I was taking a guess on some of the measurements but after I had it complete it looks like it is exactly the right size!  I made it more generic so it is useful not only for the holiday cards but to also store any cards made in the future.  So, without further ado, here is the prize:

     

This box is 4.5″ wide x 6″ long x 3″ tall.  It takes two 12×12 sheets of paper to make plus any accessories you want to make it look neat.  In my case, I used ribbon, dazzling diamonds giltter, the enjoy every moment stamp set, and the BigShot with the TopNote die.  If you are interested in the template to make this, leave me a note and I’ll get it posted. 🙂

Check out my calendar of upcoming events to join in the fun and possibly win your own door prize!

Make your own card holder box

So, I had planned to publish by this morning, the cards coming up for my Holiday Stamp-a-Stack.  However, when I started sketching out my 5 designs, the next thing I knew it was late and I had 16 designs on paper!  So, tonight I’ll be actually making up the samples but until then, here is another project I created when my mom was visiting.

  We customized the sizing from a different box template to fit the 4.25″x5.5″ cards we normally make.  The lid of this box is just a flap that folds over the top of the box to cover the opening.  We used the flower trio punch to make blue flowers for where the ribbons come through the eyelets.  I also thought it needed some more visual interest on the front so I took a strip of paper, ran it through the crimper and then glued it around the bottom of the box.  I think it turned out well!  Let me know if you want me to post the template.

Recipe:
Paper:
Old Olive CS, Green Tea Designer Paper
Accessories: Flower trio punch, eyelets, ribbon, crop-a-dile, crimper

Here are a couple views of the original sized box that my mom made but with a lid that actually covers the sides.  It still has some kinks but I think I’ll try it next time.
