Chocolate Money Wallet

I love chocolate! I mean, there really is a reason why I am overweight, and right now, its Christmas and chocolate is everywhere! (I WILL loose weight in the new year – have to fit into that wedding dress! eeek!)

I found chocolate coins and notes in Tesco’s last week, and just had to make a project for them! There are loads of tutorials for chocolate coins, but the notes?! well, I’d never seen them before!

These are just so tiny!

The original uses the Trim the Tree DSP, but the one in front is the gorgeous All is Calm paper (so sad to see it leave us soon!), and its that Scalloped Tag Topper Punch again!

 

Measurements:

Cardstock = 6 x 3 1/2″ (9 x 15.5 cm) (the metric version is slightly bigger)

Score on the long side at: 1/2, 2 3/4, 3 1/4 and 5 1/2″ (1.5, 7, 8.2, 14 cm)

Score on the short side at: 1/2, 2 and 2 1/2″ (1.5, 5, 6.5 cm)

 

Before I go today, it just had to pop in a picture of the box I used to store these chocolate in (that was before they were all eaten of course!)

Tiny Tealight Box

Hello!

Welcome to another little box post!

This time, I have created a teeny tiny box for two tealights (ikea ones), ready for your Christmas tables / party favours etc.

Stampin' Up! UK Tiny Tealight Box

 

They are just so sweet!

Both boxes use the Trim the Tree designer series paper stack, I love these paper! I have used this stack for so many things (including my advent calender!). Each sheet measures 6 1/2 x 4 1/2″, and the stack contains 48 sheets, and 24 different patterns!

 

Measurements:

Sorry the metric measurements are so exact, but its all down to the tealights 🙁

Cardstock = 6 1/2 x 4 1/2″ (thats one sheet of the dsp!) (11.4 x 16.5 cm)

Score on the long side at: 1 1/2, 3, 4 1/2, and 6″ (3.8, 7.6, 11.4 and 15.2 cm)

Score on the short side at: 1 1/2 and 3″ (3.8 and 7.6 cm)

Work of Art Card Process

Trying something different (yet again!) and thought I’d turn the camera on while I was crafting last week, and this is the outcome!

Work of Art Card Process

I really do LOVE the Work of Art Stamp set. I know some people find the big black images on the cover a little intimidating but once you look past that, and think thats not black – its possibility! its creativity! its wonderful!

I have a bit of a thing at the moment for layered stamping, I will blame Stampin’ Up! for that, 2 layer stamping in all over the new catalogue (still need to get my hands on that flower patch stamp set! Yum!)

So, this card didnt work out exactly as planned, and it definately has that ‘handmade’ look about it (something to do with the stamping halos I think) but I do quite like it!

Let me know if you’d like to see more ‘direct from my craftroom’ style videos (or anything else really!)

Sticky Note Holder

Here we are, a lovely little sticky note holder, a quick and easy project for a friday evening!

Sticky note holder stampin up

This project is super simple, using one piece of cardstock and a bit of DSP! I Love the new In Colours, Blackberry Bliss inparticular, and the MoonLight DSP Stack shows it off so well I had to use it too….

The trick is to measure your sticky notes!

I’ve attempted to explain in the video, however, I do like written instructions for fiddly projects like this….

You need to measure your notes, across the width and height (this will give you a square measurement, the front of your holder), and then measure the depth of the pad. Then, you need to take the height of the front and the height of the back (hopefully this is the same number!) and add them together, along with the depth. I’m hoping I’m making sense here ….. maybe time for a diagram.

sticky note measurements

So, to get the lenght of the cardstock you need: 3″ for the font, 3″ for the back, and 5/16″ for the depth. Now, if you can accurately cut to 5/16″ great, I cant, so I’ve cut mine to 3/8″. This gives me a piece of Cardstock 6 3/8″ by 3″.

The DSP is a 1/4″ shorter and narrower than the front of your sticky notes eg: 3×3″ notes, 2 3/4″x2 3/4″ DSP

The rest of the cover is decorated with petite petals cut from that gorgeous Blackberry Bliss, and a sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts, punched with the Modern Label Punch.

Thank You …….

Mass production of cards can be difficult. I find that producing a small number of the same card makes it easier, doing say 8 of each colour for example.

3x3 Thank you note cards

Recently I have been making Wedding Invitations (150 of them actually) and although I have broken them down into batches, there are a number of other ways of making the ‘batch cardmaking’ process a little easier.

1. do all of each step all at once eg: cut ALL the pieces for ALL the cards, then do ALL the scoring, ALL the stamping etc.

2. do it in smaller batches. I found that once I’d made about 40 invitations I was ready to give up all together, so instead, I did 30-35, and stopped for a while (admittedily, this only works if you have plenty of time!)

3. Change it up. Generally I do 6-8 of the exact same card before I change something, either the colour, or placement of the stamped images, use a different punch, etc.

4. Grab your nearest and dearest to help! not something I have ever tried, but thats more because James is not crafty at all, and I’m not sure if Freda the Cat is much good with a paper trimmer!

So, here’s my offer to you: place an order of £20 or more (there are many ways to order, use the contact me page if you are stuck), and get one of these super cute thank you notes, plus a special little something! (I’m not telling you what – you’ll have to order and find out!)

What could you get for £20? take a little look below (click on the image to go to my shop from where you can purchase!)

Thank you

🙂
