I held a similar class a few years ago and thought it was time to bring it back as it's just the best and most clever box of cards ever! I used our new, eye catching Bohemian designer paper.
It's a matchbox style box made from the thick white board in our designer paper packs. It will hold several A2 (or 4 1/4" X 5 1/2") cards and envelopes inside. Plus there's an separate area for tags on the side.
The reason for the separate tags is to give a few options for greetings depending on the need. The main cards are left without greetings on purpose. These little punched tags have dimensionals on the back so you (or the recipient) can peel off the backing and add the greeting! It's wonderful if I do say so myself and a fabulous gift, especially for a non-stamper.
This class costs $12 and is this Wednesday, June 24th at 4 or 6 pm but unfortunately it's full already. If you are local and would like to attend this class please let me know and I might schedule another.
***If you'd like the written tutorial please click hereand it will be emailed to you immediately upon payment. The tutorial includes the three templates to finish the box, measurements, supplies list and step by step photos in pdf format.
I also made another version of this unique box using the new Timeless Elegance designer paper. Holy cow; it this paper gorgeous! It is included in the tutorial above. Look:
It looks like a sepia or black and white photo doesn't it?! This designer paper is going to be a huge favorite for many of us; but especially if you like the vintage style. It's in Black, Vanilla and Sahara Sand colors; just soft and lovely.
Here's the front of the box:
I used a few of my brand new catalog products to finish it off. The new Stitched Satin ribbon in Black, the new Bold Butterfly Framelits and of course the pretty Timeless Elegance designer paper. All new favorites of mine!

Do you like getting pre-cut card kits where the measuring and cutting is done for you?
I've been offering these card kits to go for my local gals for awhile now and they're loving them! My goal with these kits is to give them easy to make cards they can finish at home quickly using products they already own. I know many people are intimidated by designing and cutting out their own cards so this solves that issue!
I create two cards using the same pieces of card stock but show them that there are a few ways they can finish their cards and that they do not have to use the stamps I did. It's really fun for me and fills a need for them.
I heard from quite a few of you that you would like this option also so I am going to offer it to my online or long distance customers too! You receive 3 kits of each set, or 9 card kits total. The kits include all of the pre-cut card stock pieces and ribbons. It does not include jewels or stamped images. The first and last sets will include pieces large enough to stamp and/or punch images as large as I used. The middle set includes the punched circles as shown.
Here are the three sets of cards this month:
I used Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon here. The patterned paper strip is from the Cherry On Top designer paper stack which is double sided and reversed on the cards. The stamp sets are Birthday Blossoms and You've Got This.
Here I used Night of Navy, Tip Top Taupe with Very Vanilla. The stamps are from Butterfly Wishes and I Think You're Great.
And lastly this is Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Tip Top Taupe. The stamps are Happy Birthday Everyone, Papillion Potpourri and Sprinkles of Life. The designer paper is from the Cherry on Top stack.
You have until June 24th to sign up for the kits.
I am sorry but I ran out of product to fill these card kits for June. They will ship out for those who have ordered them at the end of this week. The cost for long distance people is $12.50 which includes shipping. It's $8.00 for local gals for 9 pre-cut kits. Any extra kits are just $8.00 each.
I am loving the new Sprinkles of Life stamp set and coordinating Tree Builder punch! It's this year's choice of Ronald McDonald stamp set and SU will donate $3.00 with the purchase of each set. Did you know that so far Stampin' Up! has donated over $1,000,000 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities? Amazing!
Look what you can make with these two items!
I chose these two products to be my June Class to Go for many reasons; but mainly because of the versatility of the stamp set and punch. The large part of the tree punch can be the top of a tree, a cloud, basket topper, ice cream or cupcake! And I'm sure there will be many more clever uses people will find with it soon.

And on the right the flowers fit just right between the leaves below! This stamp set is available in either Photopolymer, Clear or wood mount.

It's been awhile since I created a new set of cards using my 5 sheet wonder templates. I thought Butterfly Basics would be perfect as it can easily be used for a collage style of stamping. Look how beautiful they turned out!
I used this color combination - Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon and a bit of Smoky Slate. Aren't they pretty!!
What is a 5 sheet wonder?? Well it's actually 5 templates I've created enabling you to create 10 beautiful cards without measuring or guessing at sizes. Really; absolutely no measuring! Just print the templates out and cut on the dotted lines!
The first and main template is for a sheet of neutral card stock that you stamp on, basically creating your own 'patterned' paper only you get to pick your colors and stamps. (Yes you can use patterned paper too). You will print out this template on a sheet of neutral card stock first and stamp on the opposite side. Then you just cut on the printed lines giving you perfect, pre-measured pieces for your 10 cards.
Then the following 4 templates printed onto 4 sheets of different colors of card stock. They will be the layered pieces you'll use to finish the cards! No measuring at all!!!
If you cannot run card stock through your printer you do have another option. Print out the templates on copy paper and take them and the card stock to your local office or copy store to print them for you. Here are a few of the cards I made:
The local class is on Saturday, February 21 at 1:30 pm. The cost is just $17. RSVP with payment to reserve your spot by February 17th.
Here is a link to my written tutorial for the 5 sheet wonder. It consists of the templates, directions and supplies lists plus 3 other card sets with color combinations. It's just $8.00.
