Freshly Brewed Projects with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Mini Pizza Boxes

Have you seen these Mini Pizza Boxes in the Holiday Catalogue?  Oh my gosh they are so cute and so easy to put together!

You can dress them up as much or as little as you’d like! Colour them with your brayer or Spritzers , add a belly band to dress it up or decorate with a square panel on top or simply just tie a ribbon around and add a tag.  The ideas are unlimited!

You can use them for gifting all sorts of things – cookies, candles, gift cards, jewelry – the list goes on!  The boxes have a coating inside so they are food safe – you could even make  a cookie that looks like a pizza and pop that inside!

Here’s one we made at a recent workshop and also made in Sundays Merry Little Labels class …

Mini Pizza Box Gift Box by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This little box was so fun to make and while it has lots of elements to it with the belly band, snowflakes, ribbon, bauble and tag it’s still quite easy to do!  It’s just a matter of layering the pieces.  It will make a great box for someone’s Christmas Gift and using the Belly Band means they wont need to rip it all open!

Here’s the same box with the coordinating card …

Year of Cheer

Good Afternoon and welcome to another Merry Monday! This week I have a little sneak peek into Saturday’s class using Year of Cheer Suite.

So what is Merry Monday?  well it’s my little bit of Christmas each week up until Christmas Day.  Each Monday I’ll bring you something a little ‘Merry’ to inspire you to start getting organised for Christmas.  I hope to have you all organised with cards and Christmas gift and gift packaging ideas so you wont be stressing out Christmas Eve trying to get everything done!

Year of Cheer Suite

Year of Cheer Suite from Stampin' Up!The Year of Cheer Suite is full of all sorts of gorgeousness with elegant foils, delightful metallic embellishments  and sentiments for all sorts of occasions!

In our class on Saturday we’ll be embossing the sweet Acetate Card Box and making some glorious cards to pop inside which will make gorgeous presents either before or even for Christmas!

Year of Cheer Gift Box Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

I love the Acetate Card Boxes!  They are the perfect way give cards and all sorts of gifts and for any occasion – not just Christmas. Year of Cheer Card of Joy by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

The cards I have to show you today are the same card with a couple of differences.  This first one has the banner on the left and a gold embellishement with the silver metallic ribbon.

This second card is same as the first just the banner is on the right and I’ve used gold metallic ribbon and a silver star embellishment.   These cards are quick and fun to do and whoever you give them to will love them!

Oh Happy Day

Welcome back!  It’s Friday and my last day visiting with my friend Libby.  We’ve had a wonderful couple of days but it’s time to head back to the tribe and sort them out!  Today I have my pretty Oh Happy Day card for you …

Happiest of Days - Oh Happy Day by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

Happiest of Days

This is the last card from my Happiest of Days Latte Card Club – you can download the tutorials for this class from my Latte Tutorial Shoppe.

I really enjoyed making this card as I wanted to share how you can use your stamps to make your own patterned paper or backgrounds.   The three present stamp is stamped staggered on the card in Powder Pink and I’ve used my blender pen to just drag the ink for some soft colouring.

Happiest of Days - Oh Happy Day by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator Australia

The navy was the perfect colour to go with the Powder Pink and really makes the card pop.  If I’d used another subtle colour the card would have looked washed out.

I love that using this sentiment with the presents & cake stamp is suitable for any celebration – birthdays, wedding, engagement or any occasion that involves cake & presents really!

I do hope you like today’s card and have a go at making your own patterned paper with your stamps.

Lots of Love

For my project to day I’ve used the Lots of Love Stamp set and I’ve also used the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper Pack which coordinates with the Stamp Set.

Lots of Love Gift Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

You can see how I made this set by watching this week’s Time Out Facebook Live Video (click here to watch)

Lots of Love Box by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This box is so fun and easy to make – did you see the video?   Did you notice I could get two boxes and two cards from one sheet of 12×12? I even had some paper left over for another project.

Here’s the quick Instructions …

  1. Cut your Designer Series Paper 8 1/4″ x 6″
  2. Along the long side score at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″
  3. Along the short side score at 2″, 4 1/2″ and 5 3/4″
  4. Burnish score lines and snip bottom tabs and corners (as shown in the video)
  5. Assemble your box using Fast Fuse (check out the special offer for Fast Fuse)
  6. Stamp Flower & Sentiment and cut out with square stitched shape framelit and affix to box with dimensionals
  7. Use Gold Library Clip as box closure and adhere a small bow to box with a glue dot.

Of course you’ll need a matching card and envelope …

Lots of Love Card & Envelope by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Do you love the note cards & envelopes?  Did you see they are 15% off until 10th October?  Yep you’d better stock up on them now!

I’ve made my card and envelope to match the Gift box using the Notecards and Envelopes.  It matches my box perfectly with the same paper and flower panel.  The envelope has been stamped with the flower to ensure it matches.

World Card Making Day

Would you like to make more cards like this?  then maybe you need to pop along to my place on Saturday afternoon and make a bundle while enjoying some coffee & cake ..

RemARKably Creative Blog Tour – Anything New

Welcome to the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour for May!

RemARKably Creative Blog Tour with Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This month our theme is ‘Anything New!’   How cool is that – so anything from the New Annual Catalogue starting 1st June – have you got your copy yet?  No?  Contact me today to get yours – or better still come along to my New Catalogue Crafternoon this Sunday!

Now something new … everyone knows I love Coffee but did you know I love Daisies too?  So when I was asked to do a presentation at On Stage in Sydney last month I was over the moon!!

Daisy Delight Boxed Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

 

I love making boxed sets of cards and it’s so easy when you use our awesome Stamp Cases!  There’s no scoring and folding of cardstock to make a box! You simply slip in a piece of Designer Series Paper and the box is done.  It’s always nice to decorate that box with a flower and ribbon too!

Daisy Delight Boxed Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Of course our A6 cards fit perfectly into one of these boxes! One will always need a pen handy to write in the card and on the envelopes!

Daisy Delight Boxed Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

My gift set contains 4 cards. Two of each of the above cards plus envelopes.

First we have an Old Olive base with a Pool Party layer and the stamped white layer on top.  I love this set for it’s 2 step stamps and how easy they are to stamp.

Daisy Delight Boxed Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Second we have a Calypso Coral base, Pool Party layer and white for our stamped layer.   With the set being photopolymer it’s super easy to line up to do your 2 step stamping as you can see exactly where you are putting your stamp. Daisy Delight Boxed Set by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

This whole suite is a must buy from the new Catalogue. The bundle includes the Stamp and Punch its priced for any budget.  The set includes flowers and sentiments so it’s going to be a great set for anyone starting stamping as well those who’ve been stamping for years!

Baby Cards with Bookcase Builder

Good Afternoon!  Do you ever go through a catalogue and see something new each time? or maybe you see a stamp set you wonder why you havent seen it before? Have you noticed the Bookcase Builder Stamp Set in the Occasions Catalogue? It’s one I love and think gets overlooked. Dont think you’d use it?  Well I hope what I’m sharing with you today changes your mind.

I have some friends who recently had a baby after many years of trying so wanted to make them a card.  I made this card using the Bookcase Builder Stamp set …

This card was so quick and easy with the Stitched Shape Framelits and our Notecards.  You can still order the Stitched Shape Framelits even though they arent in the catalogues and they will be in the new Annual Catalogue that comes out in June!

I loved this card so much I decided to make a bundle of matching thank you cards for them to use …

I did use the “Thank You for being my friend stamp” from the Bookcase Builder and just used my Island Indigo Stampin’ Write marker to colour just the Thank You and it worked a treat!

The colours I used for the blocks are Tangerine Tango, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry.

I do have some more ideas jotted down in my planner for the Bookcase Builder Stamp Set so stay tuned for those over the next few weeks.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this project …

Freshly Brewed Projects – Gift Packaging

Good Afternoon and welcome to another week of Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls

fbpbanner

This week we are sharing ways to package gifts for Christmas so I hope you find these ideas useful for your gift packaging.

Firstly … our Stamp Cases …

fbpgiftboxcase

Our Stamp Cases make the best ‘gift boxes’.

You can buy a pack of either half wood mount, full wood mount or clear mount cases and you get 4 in each pack starting from $9! That makes for very affordable packaging.

You can cut a piece of patterned paper to slip inside the cover and so that keeps it clean and the paper doesnt tear and all you need to do is tie it up with a ribbon and pop a tag on it if you wish!  You can customise each cover just by choosing a paper that reflects the persons likes in designs or colours – too easy.

fbpgiftboxcaseopen

You then pop in the customised gift for the person and you’re done … wonder who’ll be getting our new Watercolor Pencils, an Aqua Painter and Blender Pen for Christmas this year – makes for a very cool gift and also and sweet box to keep the pencils and tools in!

It’s Christmas so we have to have Bon Bon’s dont we?

fbpbonbons

These sweet Bon Bons were made from a piece of Designer Series Paper 6″ x 4 1/4″ and with a few scored lines and some punches from the Envelope Punch Board these babies are done!

It’s the perfect way to gift one or two pandora beads this year!  Simply tie a piece of thing ribbon into a bow at each end and whack on a tag and you are done – perfect way to use those tags from the Tin of Tags Kit dont you think?

I do hope you like what I’ve created this week – it’s Christmas so they need to be quick and easy and a hassle free as possible and I love that these items can all be reused!

Now why not pop over and see what Libby and Narelle have created for this week’s hop.

Freshly Brewed Envelope Punch Board Projects

Good Afternoon!

It’s Wednesday so that means more Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls …

frshlybrewedproject

This week we are creating projects using the Envelope Punch Board ..

Too often we forget about all the awesome products we’ve had for a while when there’s new stuff to play with and I thought it would be great to remind ourselves about this great tool – which would also make a very cool Christmas Gift for your favourite Crafter or Crafters!

You could even add a packet of Designer Series Paper and you’d have a great gift for around $50 – plus when you purchase it from me I’ll include a couple of tutorials and guides to use it!

Now you can make all sorts of projects with our Envelope Punch Board from envelopes and envelope cards to boxes, bags and treat holders but for today I wanted to share some projects there were (or are) a little different …

fbp1116set

Today I’ve made a Gift Card Slider Box, a small tea cup and and a mug or as my daughter called it a Japanese Tea Cup – I prefer to call it a latte cup!

fbpgiftcardbox

The Gift Card Slider box is one I made following a Tutorial from Stamping T! – one of my Latte Girls! It’s  the perfect size for a Gift Card!

fbpgiftcardboxopen

So dont pay up to $10 for the metal ones the stores try to sell you – make one yourself – it’s quick and easy and Tanya has a video tutorial here and it takes less than a sheet of cardstock or patterned paper!

My next project is the small Tea Cup …

fbpteacupsmall

I’ve stamped the Water Lily from Remarkable You in Versamark, embossed in Silver then water coloured with Melon Mambo.  I’ve then flicked the clear Wink of Stella Pen over the cup for a little extra glimmer.  It is so sweet and literally the perfect size for a votive candle & holder.

fbpjapaneselattecup

Last, but no where by the least, is this ‘mug’ … if you are a tea drinker maybe you prefer to call it a Japanese Tea Cup or if you are a coffee drinker (like someone else we both know) you may prefer to call it a latte cup.  It’s pretty much the same tutorial as the Tea Cup just with different measurements.

I stamped the flowers from Awesomely Artistic in Versamark, embossed in Silver and then just added some flicking from the Gold Wink of Stella for some added charm and elegance.  You could fit some lovely treats inside – I’ve popped some of the gold gumballs we got at On Stage inside a cello bag and tied it up with the gorgeous Silver Glimmer Ribbon.

Both these cups are quick and easy and I followed an easy tutorial from Linda Parker – a demonstrator from the UK.

I hope you like what I’ve created for you today and can see just how very versatile this Envelope Punch Board is.   Now I’m sure Narelle and Libby and some more gorgeous projects to share with you today using the Envelope Punch Board so be sure to pop along and visit their blogs.
