Handy Pocket Tissue Box Video Tutorial using Stampin' Up! Supplies

Hello there, 
Sorry I'm a little later than planned today but we have another busy start to our "weekend off" lol!!
I do have a super simple video tutorial for you today, as promised.  Just a little cutting, scoring and stamping to make a cute tissue cover for your handbag. 
These were originally designed to go with the road trip goodie bags I made a few weeks ago and coordinated with the Lip Balm Box and the Wet Wipes Box I shared over this last week. 
Let me start by showing the version I made in the video using both new supplies that we received at On Stage in Telford and the retiring Six Sided Sampler, sadly the hexagon punch I used in the video has sold out :-( This background was stamped using a new set called Playful Backgrounds and will be available in the new catalogue after the 1st June...
 These are the original holders I made in Crumb Cake and using Timeless Textures stamps and English Garden DSP, to match the the rest of the goodie bags.
 More Words of Truth sentiments :-)
 I used Timeless Textures and Versamark to make the backgrounds on these.
TIP: You don't "need" every colour of ink pad, use versamark on any coloured card (it doesn't show up on white or cream) to create a light, watermarked tone on tone effect
 So, how about I share the video with you now!
And for those who like written instructions here you go:
Card 6cm x 29.8cm (full length of A4) or 2+3/8" x 11"
Score at: 8cm, 10.5cm, 21.5cm, 24cm or 2+1/4", 3+1/4", 7+3/4" and 8+3/4"
Belly Band: 3.5cm x 19cm or 1+3/8" x 7.5"
Score at: 5cm, 7.5cm, 13.5cm, 16cm or 2", 3", 5+1/4" and 6+1/4"
As always, please do watch the video for full instructions and tips along the way :-)
 and one more picture to finish today of the sweet sentiment from Six Sided Sampler stamps
Well, that's all from me for today. I'll be back tomorrow, but probably later in the day again as I have another busy day, this time it's cricket, with the littlest child tomorrow morning ;-)
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed todays post!

Silver Promotion Card using Birthday Blooms by SU! for a Monochrome Look

Hello there,
I have a card today that I made for my lovely downline Angel for promoting to Silver with Stampin' Up! I am so proud for her for achieving this goal and this is the card I made for her in a monochrome silver colourway, of course! Have a peek...
 I stamped this lovely flower from Birthday Blooms using versamark and heat embossed it in, yes, you guessed it, silver! Then coloured it in using an aqua painter and my Smoky Slate ink pad.
 I love how this changed this image completely from vintage and shabby chic to classy and elegant.
 I used some of the silver glitter tape from SaB down the side (but you could swap it out for glimmer paper if you don't have this) and topped it with a silver sequin strip.
 Wouldn't this make a fab silver wedding card too?
 Angela chose a PL album and pages for her promotion gift and I wrapped it to match
 with some of every silver ribbon I had ;-)
OK, I'm going to finish today with one last picture of the card. I really hope you liked this? It's one of my faves ;-)
Just to let you know I'm closing this months hostess code on Saturday evening so if you'd like bonus gift in the post from me in May then please use the code below with your order before then :-)
Thanks for looking today.

Tuesday Tutorial, Handbag Sized Wipes Box using SU! Supplies

As I promised on Saturday's post (where I shared with you my Lip Balm Box) I have a new video for you today with a little box for a handbag sized box of wipes. These are more gifts from our Telford road trip ;-) I'll start with a few pics first for you. These first pics are of are the ones I gave to my ladies and the papers all matched the other gifts I gave them ;-)
 Inside is a standard pack of hand wipes and I managed to get two boxes from just one A4 sheet of card :-)
 I love these sentiments from Words Of Truth, I knew I should have used them more and now they are being retired! Doh!
 And here's the boxes I made for the video :-)
 Want to see how they are made? Cool! Here's the video for you...
And those all important measurements for those who prefer written instructions are:
Card: 21cm x 14.8cm or 8+1/4" x 5+3/4"
Score along long side at 2cm, 9.5cm, 11.5cm and 19cm or 3/4", 3+3/4", 4+1/2" and 7+1/2"
Score along short side at 2cm and 13cm or 3/4" and 5".
For full instructions please watch the video :-)))
And one final picture to finish today.
Well, that's all from me today,

Thanks for looking today,
