2019 Adventure – January Scrapbook Page

Earlier in 2018 I added some memory keeping back into my Stampin’ Up! business.  I used to have a regular monthly scrapbook class but had gotten away from it and I missed it.  So I decided to add a scrapbook page to my monthly stamp club.  Each month we make one 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page in our monthly meeting.  It’s ready to just add photos.  Everyone has been enjoying the pages.  So now I’m trying to start regular Facebook Live videos and plan to include a scrapbook page once a month.  For January I decided to take the page for stamp club and create a second page to go with it.  Be sure you watch my Facebook Live video from Sunday, Jan 27th and you can see both of these pages. 

Watch the video here – Facebook Live Jan. 27th.

The January 2019 Stamper’s Club scrapbook layout is a New Year’s celebration layout – Gold Foil, Basic Black, Whisper White, and Basic Gray are the colors I used.  Watch the video to see the trick on getting the Baker’s Twine added, the little flowers added, as well as some tips on the numbers and the detailed word dies.  Below is a list of supplies that I used.

Supply List

  • #147003 Neutrals 12×12 card stock (Basic Gray)
  • #100730 Whisper White card stock

  • #150609 Well Said Bundle = stamp set + Well Written Framelits
  • #101406 Jet Black Stazon ink
  • #143263 Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

Cut strips of Designer Paper to 2-1/4″ x 9″, and also cut a strip of white.  Then center four strips on each piece of Basic Gray card stock.  Use the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine to cut the Black rectangles wit the new Rectangle Stitched dies – don’t miss them in the Occasions catalog on page 28 – these are the photo mats.  It’s hard to see the stitching in these photos. 

The “hooray” is from the Well Said Bundle. Use the Adhesive Sheets for detailed words like this.  Add the adhesive sheet to the foil sheet before running through the Big Shot.  Next remove the backing and attach to your page.  The Well Written die set will be a great for all kinds of paper crafts – it has so many words and you can combine with the stamps for endless possibilities. Try cutting words apart and combine different letters or parts of the words – I checked and almost the whole alphabet is included in these words.

Just for You with Lovely Foil

I shared one more card in my FB Live video from Jan. 21, 2019 that used the same suite of products as the projects in the Made to Love Class.  You can see the video here.  This card was one of the cards available in my Quick & Cute card class this past week.  It has a glimpse of the Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets that are available through the Sale-A-Bration Promotion.  Don’t miss out on these foild sheets – they have been very popular already and are likely to sell out before we get to the end of March!

One trick on this card was that I mounted all three of the little hearts from the Meant to Be stamp set on one block.  Then I could stamp the whole group at the same time on the Crumb Cake layer of my card.  I just randomly stamped the grouping all over to create this layer.  Next I added the piece of Lovely Lipstick Foil sheet and then a strip of the All My Love Designer Series Paper. 

To finish the card I tied some of the 1/8″ Sheer Whisper White ribbon on my layer before adding it to a Thick Whisper White card base.  The greeting is stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink and adhered with dimensionals over the ribbon. This card doesn’t have to be for Valentine’s Day even though the colors and hearts suggest that.  

Supply List

  • #148626 Meant to Be stamp set
  • #148576 All My Love Designer Series paper

Tons of Hearts

The last project from the Made with Love class was a Valentine’s Day card featuring the Meant to Be Bundle.  Included in the bundle is the Meant to Be stamp set and the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.  When you see this set of dies in real life it is a huge difference from seeing them in the catalog – it makes a ton of different hearts.  There are so many possibilities with this die set.  There are a total of 16 different dies including two stitching dies to add stitching to a background or the cut out dies. You are going to want to order this set of dies – just look at the tons of different hearts you can get from it!

If you would like to see all the projects from the Made to Love class watch my FB live video from Jan. 21, 2019.  You can see it here.  Today I’m sharing more details about the Valentine’s Day card.

Happy Valentine’s Day

I used a 4″ square piece of the All My Love Designer Series paper and cut off a 1″ strip to give me two pieces.  One was for the front of the card and one was for the inside of the card.  Adhere both pieces to a layer of Whisper White card stock.  Use the 3″ piece on the top for the front of the card.  Add the 1″ piece (using the opposite side) to the bottom for the inside of the card.  Next on the front layer stamp the sentiment in Crumb Cake ink – I used Happy Valentine’s Day, but there are others in the set that you could use. 

Cut a long piece of Linen Thread – about 36″ – and wrap it around the layer 3 times and tie in a knot.  After that add the Balmy Blue scalloped heart on the Linen Thread before tying a bow.  Then to anchor the bottom of that large heart I added the small scalloped heart (cut from Lovely Lipstick card stock) with mini dimensionals. Be sure to watch my video you will see exactly how I did this.

Mini Cakes in a Bakers Box

At the Made to Love class Heather showed us how to make these mini Red Velvet Bundt cakes.  And they are just the perfect size to fit inside the little Baker’s Box.  These are a carry over item from the Holiday Catalog.  She filled the pans and put the cakes in the oven, and then showed us the truffles (I posted those yesterday).  Then everyone came into my studio and I showed them all the stamping projects.  When they finished all their stamping they decorated their cake and put it inside the box.

I showed everything we made on a FB live video on Jan. 21, 2019.  You can see it here.  Here are some more details about the Baker’s Box project for the mini cakes.

I cut 2″ wide strips of the All My Love Designer Series paper and a 2″ x 4″ long piece of Crumb Cake card stock.  The strip of the Designer paper won’t quite fit all the way around the box to create the belly band.  So I used the Crumb Cake piece to bridge the gap in the back.  Glue the designer paper to the card stock, then you can slide the band on and off to get inside the box.  If you watch my video you can see what I’m talking about. Then decorate the front – I used the hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies and the Braided Linen Trim.  The stamp set in this photo is Label Me Pretty but some of the girls used the Meant to Be set instead. 

Supply List

  • #150587 Meant to Be Bundle = stamp set + framelits
  • #148576 All My Love Designer Series paper
  • #147899 Baker’s Boxes
  • #147808 Braided Linen Trim
  • #148578 All My Love Card stock pack (use Crumb Cake & Lovely Lipstick)
  • #147116 Crumb Cake Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #100730 Whisper White card stock
  • #146927 Share What You Love Artisan Pearls
  • #143715 Pretty Label Punch
  • #138995 Tear & Tape
  • #143861 Label Me Pretty Stamp set (optional)

I told everyone to choose the greeting based on who they would be giving it too.  So everyone had several choices.  The little bitty hearts come from inside the decorative heart die cut piece. 

Yum! I hope you enjoyed this project. If you’d like to order any of these Stampin’ Up! products to make your own Valentine treats please see my link below.
