Envelope Punch Board

Hi Stampers!

What a clever little tool this Envelope Punch Board is and I am learning new things all the time about what to make with it. Here is a wee look at how easy it is to make your own envelopes...

You can also make your own co-ordinating envelope liners like this one I made for a friends 60th Birthday card

Here I used the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper (DSP) from Page 19 of the Occasions Catalogue and is oh so easy.

I will be running a class on how to make 3 x projects using the Envelope Punch Board as well as a quick demonstration on the envelopes and matching liners. Here is a sneak peek of my 3 projects

If you are in Brisbane check out my Class schedules on my Stampin' Up! website here
and send me a quick email if you wish to know more

Happy Stamping!

Hi Everyone

I have been seeing a lot of these "Cards-in-a-Box" lately and simply loved them.  There are many videos out there showing how to make these and I found this one by Brianna Thompson from Gettysburg, PA in America. Thanks Brianna.   It is super easy and you can make so many different wonderful creations to suit the person you are giving them to.

 I have made a couple in the last 2 weeks for different friends and will be doing a class on how to make them at my next WGs & Friends Gathering this weekend.  If you are in the Brisbane, Australia area and would like to join us email me here ,with the subject Card-in-a-box Class, for more information.  The class costs $10.00 per person and all materials are supplied.

Here is one of my creations for a male friend having a birthday this month.  I used Baked Brown Sugar Card for the box and decorated it with Coastal Cabana and the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper from the new Occasions Catalogue - Celebrate the Every day.  I chose the Simply Stars Stamp Set on Page 124 of the Annual Catalogue, and cut these out by hand and also the "Celebrate" is from the Sketched Birthday Stamp Set on Page 13 of the Annual Catalogue. The greeting is from the Best of 25 Years stamps -  Best of Birthdays shown below.
