Stampin' Up! CASE The Catalogue!

Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Gemma Clarke -

Hi everyone

By now most of you will be familiar with the new Annual Catalogue for 2016/2017. I must say it's jam packed full of exciting new products and a few firm favourites.
So today as I sat flicking through my catalogue I got to page 121 and realised that I have both of the stamp sets featured on that page so thought i would have a 'CASE'! For those of you that are unsure of the meaning of CASE it stands for Copy And Share Everything. which is a Stampin' Up! term for all of us demonstrators to pool our ideas and hopefully inspire you our friends and customers. Most folks are happy for you to CASE their ideas as long as you credit them as the designer. I think its a fantastic thing to share our love of crafting and after all I become a demonstrator so I could share my passion for paper craft with all of you lovely people!







Here is a picture of all the products I used. The stamp sets are Happy Happenings with is a great set of sentiments and a good staple set to have. The other is the Playful Backgrounds, which is a photopolymer set and one of my favourite sets. If you remember I used it in my last post for my notepad cover and mini box. In the catalogue Stampin' Up! used Rose Red ink, I don't have that so I used Watermelon Wonder in its place with the So Saffron and Emerald Envy. The card bases are made from Crumb Cake cardstock and they are 3" by 3". The Whisper White is 2 3/4" by 2 3/4".

Stampin' Up! Playful Backgrounds Notepad cover and tiny box

Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Made by Gemma crafts


Hello everybody

Today I have got a little project for you featuring the Playful Backgrounds stamp set. I have used it to create my own dsp to decorate a notepad cover and tiny gift box that I made for the people that attended my workshop back in June. There are so many tutorials out there for notepad covers etc but I have kept mine simple and easy to do so you can make a batch for chirstmas or to have in the emergency gift stash! 

The little box has a couple of chocolates in and some little sticky notes too. I got my notepads from WHSmiths but they are available in most supermarkets and of course online.

Inside the notepad cover I made a pocket and put the new In Colour bookmark that i made up in there. On the opposite side is the note pad itself.

Click on the picture above to watch the video tutorial. 

The little box is made form a piece of sweet sugarplum cardstock measuring 6 1/2" by 5 3/4" and scored on the 6 1/2" side at 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2" and 6". On the 5 3/4" side its is then scored at 1 1/2" and 4 3/4".  
The dsp that I stamped was then used to decorate the box and the cover. For the box you will need 2 pieces measuring 1 1/4" by 3".
The note pad cover is a piece of sweet sugarplum cardstock measuring 6 1/4" by 8 1/2" scored on the 6 1/4" side at 3" and 3 1/4". 
You will also need 3 pieces of dsp. One measuring 8 1/4" by 2 3/4", One that is 4" by 5" this is for the pocket inside and finally one that is 10" by 2 7/8" for the front of the notepad,
