Geometrical & the Kaleidoscope Trend: Pop Up Box Card Idea

Geometrical Pop-Up Box Card by LovenStamps

Pop-Up Box Card: Video tutorial on making these fabulous cards simple, from LovenStampsCan I get a big “like” for Pop-Up Box Cards??  Usually I’m all about clean and simple, but these little box cards just make me happy!  In March I shared a Video Tutorial on making these little favorites, so be sure to check it out if you haven’t seen one in action.

(Or click the photo strip to the right to see a great pin-able graphic with quick tips on making these cards)

This Pop-Up Box Card features the Geometrical stamp set (134942) that I wasn’t sure I liked…until I had my hands on it at Leadership.  We made some super-cute bookmarks (check out the project photo at the bottom of this post) that are a huge hit in my sample basket at parties now.

And even funnier, I was thinking that I wasn’t going to like the geometrical trend.  And as we were walking out of the Leadership session on the geometric trend, a demonstrator stopped me to pay a nice compliment on the dress I was wearing. “I love your dress! You’re really on top of this trend!”  I had to look down and laugh out loud, because apparently Stampin’ Up! knows me better than I know myself!  Sure enough, my dress was all about the geometric shape trend (check out the dress in this post, too).

So do yourself a favor and check out this stamp set — turns out that Stampin’ Up! knows what we like before we even realize it!!

Geometrical: DIY Pop-Up Box Card with Video Tutorial link from LovenStamps

Love the little spiral bits?  They’re so easy!  Start by punching a 1″ circle, then start at the outside and cut in a spiral in towards the center.  They pop up automatically on their own, or you can tease them out by tugging on the free end.  Attach in the center with Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive (110755).  I use this stuff so much that I have the product number memorized :)

One other tip — the spirals curl automatically AWAY from the top as you cut.  So if you want the black & white side to appear like my sample above, you’d put the black & white side of the paper away from you as you cut.  Don’t worry about it too much though — you’ll figure this out the first time you cut one anyway :)

First Day for Convention Registration

convention-free-stamps-excitement

Want to join me for Inspire. Create. Share. – aka the Stampin’ Up! Annual Convention and then get a FREE Convention registration ($295 that you save!)??

Convention is just about the most fun you can have as a demonstrator.  Picture thousands of creative crafting women (and a handful of men) making new friends, being inspired by the latest trends and products and STAMPING!  It’s a barrel of fun — and an amazing experience!

You can attend without being a demonstrator, but only if extra registrations are available.  Plus it’s $395 if you pay to attend as a guest.  It’s so MUCH better to join my LovenStampfuls family by becoming a demonstrator, and then your Convention registration is FREE (extra special perk for new demonstrators this year who signed up after July 1, 2013).

Doing the wave for free stamps

Oh, and did I mention the FREE stamps? :)

Convention 2014
July 17-19
Salt Lake City, Utah

They Say April Showers Bring May Flowers…

We are off and running here with that old saying. The rain starts tonight! And with a puppy, rain leads to mud which leads to… Well… You can picture the fun!

Just thought I’d share a quick pic of how big our puppy, Pepper, has gotten this past couple of months.

Here’s her new puppy picture from August:

20140401-080141.jpg

And here is her “now” picture:

20140401-080243.jpg

Looks like I’m going to need to do some scrapping! My Digital Studio, here I come!

Speaking of My Digital Studio — I have been making some fun projects lately… a yearbook for my daughter’s ice skating team, tags for gifts for the demonstrators who help at our Spring Into Stamping event this coming Friday and Saturday, and just today, a graphic for a new challenge that I’m offering to my LovenStampfuls demonstrator family!

Want to see it?

April Showers Bring May Flowers - LovenStampfuls Demonstrator Challenge

If you’re a LovenStampfuls Demonstrator, be sure to hop on over to our Facebook Page for more details.  Or drop me an email with questions!

The graphic pieces are all from the New Heights Digital Download (129898).  Have you tried My Digital Studio lately?

  • If you want, you can try it for FREE for 30 days with limited artwork/images included (get the FREE My Digital Studio now – add it to your shopping cart and check out for free).
  • Or just go ahead and get the full version with all the basic templates and artwork in the package (get the $19.95 version – with no shipping cost if you just download it)

Envelope Punch Board: Card Box Tutorial

Envelope Punch Board: Make a Gift Box for Cards!  Video Tutorial by LovenStamps

Here’s another tutorial for one of my March Stamps in the Mail Club projects.  Did you see my Pop-Up Box Card tutorial last week?  Just like that project, this one uses elements from the Happenings Simply Created Card Kit (133329) and elements from my March Stamps in the Mail Club card kit, including the Says It All stamp set (133173).

Envelope Punch Board: DIY Gift Box and Card set with the Happenings Stamps in the Mail Club (March) from LovenStampsActually, if you purchase the March SITM kit, you’ll be making this Gift Box & Card set at home!  The Envelope Punch Board tutorial is for your information.  With Stamps in the Mail, you don’t need to own the Envelope Punch Board (133774) since your box will be pre-scored.

The finished box size from my video holds the Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes (131527) as well as the envelopes and cards from the Happenings Simply Created Card Kit (133329).

Here are my scoring notes for the Gift Box for Cards & Envelopes:

  • Card stock: 8 1/4″ x 8 1/4″
  • First score line: 3 1/8″ (and punch)
  • Second score line: 4 1/8″ (and punch)

Then repeat by lining up each score line with the score guide and continue to rotate and score along each side.  Use the corner rounder on the Punch Board to finish off your tips, and viola!

If you’re viewing via email subscription, click here to see the post & video directly on my blog

Pretty simple!  Cards make terrific gifts for friends, family, teachers… pretty much everyone!  And with a sweet coordinating gift box, they’re even better.  So grab your Envelope Punch Board and get started!  Or make your first one by getting your own March Stamps in the Mail Club Kit from me :)

Happy Stamping!

Pop-Up Box Card: Make It Simple – a Video Tutorial

Pop-Up Box Card Made Easy: Video Tutorial by LovenStamps

I’ve been seeing these Pop-Up Box cards around for the last couple of months.  But honestly, the first time I looked at one, I thought, “No way.”  I figured they were way too complicated for my tastes.  I’m a fan of simple stamping.  But then I finally saw one created in person at our demonstrator Stamp & Share event last month, and I was inspired!  I couldn’t wait to get home and make one myself!

I changed the dimensions a bit from what I was shown — again, simple for me, thanks.  Since then, I’ve designed several… you might say they are a bit of an addiction for me now! And I’m in love with this card, using elements from the Happenings Simply Created Card Kit (133329) and elements from my March Stamps in the Mail Club card kit, including the Says It All stamp set (133173).

Actually, if you purchase the March SITM kit, you’ll be making this card at home!

Pop-Up Box Card: Video tutorial on making these fabulous cards simple, from LovenStamps

Would you like to see it in action?  Here’s a video tutorial on creating this fun Pop-Up Box Card (made simple).  Because you know me… if there’s way to simplify, I’m all for it!

If you’re viewing via email subscription, click here to see the post & video directly on my blog

Need my Pop-Up Box Card dimensions again?

  • The main card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (yup, a simple half sheet).
  • The scoring is at 2, 4, 6 and 8″ (again, simple).
  • Turn the card sideways and score in the middle at 2 3/4″ (siiiimple…)
  • The insert piece is 2 3/4″ x 3″ and you’ll score at 1/2″ and 3″.

See?  It’s painless!  Believe me, if I can do it, then you can do it :)  And it’s even easier if you just get my March Stamps in the Mail Club Kit.

Happy Stamping!
