A Note for You - Just Add Ink Challenge #50

This week there is a colour challenge at Just Add Ink. Hope you can take some time out to join in the fun!

My PERSONAL CHALLENGE is to use all my owl stamps, dies, punches, paper, material etc. on some paper craft projects over the summer break! I can now tick off the owl from the Hostess L1 Set, Cute By the Inch!!

Cute By the Inch Sticky Note Holder

The Colour Combo

One of my most popular posts for 2010 was the Woodland Walk Owl Post-it-Note Holder so I thought I'd make another 'sticky note holder' (Aussie Lingo) to suit this week's colour challenge (different design of course).

Do you like the cute little square made from the Scallop Trim Corner Punch? I watched a hilarious video tutorial by the very funny, Bonnie Thurber, entitled, 'New Punches' (Border and Corner Punches). This scalloped square project works with a 2" square.

If you're a Stampin 'Up! Demonstrator in Australia or New Zealand, you can view the very entertaining tutorial on Stampin' Connection, HERE.

I have decided to post the metric measurements for the Post-it-note holder which I have converted from the original tutorial by Dawn Griffith.

Cut a piece of card stock 8cm X 19cm. Score along the long side at 8cm, 9cm and 10cm and then follow Dawn's tutorial instructions.

Project Recipe for Cute By the Inch Sticky Note Holder:
Stamp Sets: Cute by the Inch (Hostess L2), Sweet Little Sentiments (retired), Woodgrain
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Riding Hood Red, Elegant Eggplant
Card Stock: Pear Pizzazz, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Accessories: Subtles Button (So Saffron), 1 1/4" Square Punch, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Dimensionals
Non-SU: Mini Gel Pens from the Post Office and a pack of Sticky Notes from Officeworks

Thanks again, Rochelle, for introducing me to this very cute project idea.

Bron, great use of the colours. I love making these post-it note holders they are great market sellers. I will have to check out Bonnie's video tutorial as I would love to make one of those square frames. Have a lovely day!

Bronwyn, I have been wanting to make some of these but didn't take the time to work out the measurements so I could fit the little pens. I have bought them all ready to go!! Love your little scalloped square and your post it holder turned out so beautiful!
Jean McKenzie said…
Ohhhhh PS, I forgot to say a big thank you for posting those measurements LOL!!

Totally cute Bron. Love the way you have masked a spot for the sentiment to go.

You make these colours look effortless. Gorgeous little project. I too love how you masked an area for your sentiment.
Super cute! Thanks for the measurements ... might just have to try one for myself! :) Hugs xxaxxx

Love what you have done with these colours. The Scallop Square is great and I'm adding the Woodgrain to my Wish List. Cute button detail - I must use some buttons - I forget about them.

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
