Get Well Soon Tissue Holder

Hi Stampers. As you know, I’ve been working on items to sell at upcoming craft fairs and figured since cold season is upon us, tissue holders may be a good idea.
get-well-tissue-holder I started out with a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock 4.5″ x 10″.  I scored it at .5″, 3″, 4″, 6.5″.   To soften it a little I rounded the corners that will be the top with the Stampin’ Up! Project Life corner rounder. I then cut designer series paper (the DSP in the photo is from the Stampin’ Up! All Abloom paper stack) 4.25″ x 2.25″ and 4.25″ x .75″ for the bottom and a strip 4.5″ x 1″ for the top.  I used the same DSP to punch out a butterfly with the Stampin’ Up! Elegant Butterfly punch.  I then cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock out with the label framelits (framelit # 3 counting from smallest to largest). I inked up the tree branch with blooms from the Stampin’ Up! Thoughts and Prayers stamp set by coloring onto the stamp with my Mossy Meadow and Melon Mambo markers, huffing on it with my breath (to moisten the ink) and then stamping onto the card stock on the upper left side.  I allowed some of the stamp to hang over the edge and stamp onto the scrap paper below.  I then stamped the Get Well Soon sentiment from the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set onto the lower right side of the label in Mossy Meadow ink.  I finished this off by sponging a little Mossy Meadow ink around the edge of the card stock.

It was now time to assemble.  I adhered the DSP to the base with snail adhesive first and then used the Stampin’ Up! oval punch to punch out a hole in the center of the top, where the tissue would pop out.  I then used a strip of sticky strip to adhere the 1/2 inch side to the back, giving me the slot to insert the tissue packet into.  The 1″ strip of DSP and label were then added to the top with snail adhesive.  For the butterfly, I used a glue dot in the center of the butterfly, none on the wings.  This allows to wings to stick up a little as if the butterfly could float away.  I then added a little sparkle by adding a few rhinestones to the middle of the butterfly as his body.

Go ahead and pop over to my store and pick up the supplies needed to make a few of these for your friends and family that may catch a cold this year and need a small give to remind them that you are thinking of them.

It’s National Scrapbook Day!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

In 1994, Creative Memories (which is now Anhi & Zoe), declared the first Saturday in May, National Scrapbook Day.  Anyone who know me, knows I’m a big time Scrapbooker.  I have been since I had my son, Troy, in 1991.

I tired to turn my mom and my mother in law onto scrapbooking too.  But, all it did was convince my mom to pull all her photos out of the photo albums that were turning the photos all yellow. She got them all mixed up and way out of order in the process and then got frustrated and split the photos between my brother and I. Now we each have a very mixed up (incomplete) set of photos of our childhood.

This gave me more drive to do the scrapbooking for my kids.  Note: this was all in the pre-digital age.  I had all my photos printed in duplicates and scrapbooked everything twice.  Once for Troy and once for Kristina, my daughter. The extra hiccup in my plan is that I’m a big time photographer.  I photographed EVERYTHING!  This made scrapbooking a huge process.  Most of my scrapbooking got done at scrapbook retreat weekends and most of my pages are pretty simple.

Fast forward 23 years and despite my best efforts to keep up, I’m several years and hundreds of photos (if not more) behind!  So imagine my excitement when Stampin’ up! decided to partner with Becky Higgins and bring us Project Life by Stampin’ Up!

This layout was so simple to put together and didn’t require nearly as many supplies as I’m used to carrying to my scrapbook retreats!  I got a two page spread done really quickly and didn’t have a mess to clean up!  I love it!  I think I’ve just got my second wind on scrapbooking!  I may get caught up yet!  

Who wants to join me in getting caught up on their scrapbooking or simply learning how to scrapbook?  As of yesterday, May 1st, 2014 – Project Life by Stampin’ Up! supplies can be purchases in my online store!
