Onstage Excitement and Sneak Peek at the Occasions 2017 Catalog!

Posted on

Good morning BFFs!

Well, we’ve just come back from Stampin’ Up! Onstage, and we’ve brought back some stamping goodness!  I have a lot to share with you – from our Stampin’ Up! family photos to new stamp sets, so let me begin!

First, I want to take a moment and congratulate our SU mom, Natalie Travis on achieving #94 in the Stampin’ Up! Global Top 100!  This is a well earned acknowledgment as she provides support and leadership to our wonderful team of SU demonstrators!  We are so happy for her!!

img_1712img_1695As for our little part of the Stampin’ Up! World, it was really awesome to meet the other demonstrators that are part of our group.  We are all Independent Demonstrators that run our own businesses, but at the heart we are a family that support each other! Meeting them in person was a highlight of my time at OnStage!

Pizza Box project

Posted on

On Saturday we had a Stamp Camp and it was so much fun! I love when all of our friends can get together and create. We had a couple first timers this time and it’s exciting to see their reactions to what they can make. We made a cute little pizza box that holds 4 notecards and envelopes.

So I promised on Periscope to share the dimensions of the box. It’s a 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ box. Perfect to fit 3×3 notecards inside to give away or keep for yourself.

The crumb cake piece starts as a 5 1/2 x 10″ piece.

I’ve scored it longwise at 1″ and 4 1/2″.

Then I flipped it and scored it at 1″, 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″ and 9″.

Then cut the lines as in the diagram.

I punched a half circle out for a finger spot to open the box easier.

I used tear and tape to hold the box together. I put the tape on so the tabs would be on the inside of the box and not showing. Also, you want to make sure your lid has the half circle cut out.

Here’s everything from Stamp Camp. Feel free to CASE!
