For those of you in NZ I hope you enjoyed your long weekend. It was great to have an extra day off work and enjoy the sunshine. I managed to get out into the garden for a bit and have some crafting time. I will try and post my creations soon now that I have my camera back (it went on a short trip to China with my brother!).
Here's a card I made a couple of weeks ago. I don't know about you but I often forget to use the previous years In Colours so I thought I'd get them out to create this project. I've used all five colours - Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit, Garden Green and Midnight Muse and a set that I haven't used much - Papillon Potpourri.
I also used the new Trimmer Rotary Blades to create the scalloped border edge on the mat - don't you love new toys? Now speaking of new toys - Stampin' Up! have just released another great tool - the Envelope Punch Board.
- It creates totally customisable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different colour and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
- It’s super easy to use; it will go over as a huge wow when you demonstrate it at your events and your customers see it in action. It looks intimidating at first glance, but when they see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score they’ll go crazy (in a good way).
- It’s small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to take it to your events and show it. It’s also a great selling point when you show your customers how it’s super portable and easy to store. It’s small and light enough that they could use it while watching a football match, at a park, at a friend’s for craft night—anywhere.
- It even has a clever scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
- It’s easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don’t have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won’t lose them!).
- The price is terrific--especially for a tool that does so much!
- It will be in next year’s annual catalogue, so it’s here to stay.
I've had a play with it over the weekend and it's so much more than just an envelope board. I've made a box using a 12 x 12 sheet of DSP and a chocolate holder - there are so many other uses for it so watch this space.
Check back soon to see my projects using the new Envelope Punch Board.
