Squash Book with Stampin' Up!'s Geared Up Garage Bundle

Happy Friday! Can you believe there's only 11 days until Christmas?! Anyone else in a panic to get everything done? Well let's set aside that thought for the next few minutes or so and focus on something other than Christmas!

Today's Facebook Live was featuring a suite that will be available in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue (beginning January 3rd). It is a fabulous set for the men in your life. I've been having so much fun with it. I've shared a couple other projects using this suite on my blog earlier this week, you can find them here and here.

But today I switched gears, lol get it, and decided to do a fun fold called a squash book. This is definitely a blast from the past. I've created a few of these over the years.

This card looks very similar to this one that I shared with you the other day, but when you open it, it looks VERY different!

These cards can easily be converted into photo albums and you can attach multiple pages together so that it can go on for quite awhile. In the video (below) I shared a squash album I did years ago with photos of my daughter.

Back to the card, I could have tucked this into a medium sized envelope but I decided to create a little box for it instead. In the video I also share how I came up with the measurements. Knowing the process helps so that you can make boxes of any size!

This is going to be perfect for my dad for his birthday in March.

Remember these products will be available to order January 3rd, 2019. If you don't want to wait, you can always make them part of your starter kit by joining Stampin' Up! You can join my team for just $135 and choose $165 in product - no shipping and no GST! If you have any questions, let me know.

Have a creative day!

Stampin' Up!'s Geared Up Garage Celebrate Card

Sharing another card using the fabulouse Geared Up Garage stamp set - this one uses the fabulous coordinating framelits as well. These gears are amazing! This suite is definitely one you'll want to add to your shopping list for January 3rd when the Occasions catalogue goes live.

The card itself is very simple but there is a bit of a trick on this card - if you want to learn what it is be sure to join me for my Friday Facebook live at 11am MST.

Sorry for the quick post today, still lots of Christmas prep to get done. I'm hope your preparations are coming along nicely!

See you on Friday!

Geared Up Garage Sneak Peek

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Ours was wonderful but incredibly busy. I did lots of baking, cleaned the house, we hosted a Christmas party, spent some time skating on the neighbourhood pond, worked on my December album and spent a bit of time relaxing. It was a fabulously full weekend.
My heart is full!

Today's project is a little peek at a stamp set that will be available in the Occasions catalogue called Geared Up Garage. It's perfect for the men in your life! It does have a set of framelits that coordinate and allow for lots more versatility but I didn't use them for this particular card.

Sometimes it's good to just step back and create something simple and this card is definitely that. It uses our note cards - love those, they make things so quick and easy. then just a couple colours of card stock, the ribbon that is part of the suite and the adorable little trinkets that also coordinate.

I'll be featuring this bundle of products on this weeks Facebook live if you'd like to see it in use and what is all included in the suite, be sure to join me on FB at 11am MST on Friday.

Have a creative day!

Treat Holders Created with the First Frost Bundle

Happy Friday! This Friday's Facebook live featured the First Frost bundle. A beautiful bundle that can be used year round - not just for the holidays. 

We created two quick and easy treat holders. 

 This first one is what I gave everyone who is a member or attended my monthly card class. It simple but beautiful. And could be used for any occasion - Valentine's Day, St. Patty's Day, Easter, Birthday party treats - the list goes on. Simply switch out the patterned paper to suite the occasion.

The second project we created was a gift card/treat holder using one of our craft pillow boxes. Although this uses the same suite, it looks nothing like Christmas. I think this would be great for a wedding gift card!

Here's the replay if you want to check out the details on how to make these two projects.

Thanks for watching!
