I set to work a few weeks ago making a whole host of paper crafting items to showcase everything you can do with the wonderful Stampin' Up1 products.
These butterfly pegs were based on a swap I received at Regional Training in September. I modified them slightly by getting smaller pegs as I thought they would make great memo board clips. You can't see, but I also added a small round magnet on the back to they will stick to a fridge.
I stamped the Parlour Prints background stamp onto Whisper White in Island Indigo, Perfect Plum and Old Olive, then cut to the size of the peg so I could cover the front and back.
I then stamped the circular image from the new stamp set called Delicate Doilies in each colour and punched out the centre section with a 1 3/8" Circle Punch. This was mounted onto the peg and topped with a butterfly created using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and Big Shot.
I used a 2-Way Glue Pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds to the embossed area. I love a touch of sparkle!
These will now be adorning my notice board to keep all of my letter and reminders in place :o)
I decided I also wanted to show off the lovely new Designer Series Papers, so I covered some notebooks.
The bottom notebook is covered with one of the patterns from the Timeless Portrait pack. This is the gorgeous new In Colour - Island Indigo and Very Vanilla. There are 11 other patterns in this set and all of them have a vintage feel. The other colours used in the pack are River Rock, Basic Black and Cherry Cobbler. It is part of the Timeless Portrait Suite that includes a stamp set and fabric!
The middle notebook is covered with one of the pattern papers from Just Add Cake. It such a versatile DSP pack which uses eight different Stampin' Up! colours.
The top notebook is covered in DSP from a pack called Cheerful Treat. This is a pack you can only get as a hostess. The new Hostess Pounds really allow you to get much more of what you want for FREE. The hostess pounds come into effect with a workshop total, or individual order, of £150. You get £25 hostess pounds for this size workshop or order, and this pack of DSP is only £8 hostess pounds, so you would still have £17 to spend on other goodies! How great is that?
I did line the inside of the cover with a co-ordinating piece of card to cover the folds and stuck down edges, but forgot to take a photo of that.
These are really quick to make and would be brilliant in different sizes to add in as stocking gifts this Christmas.
