WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #77 – GET A SCALLOP ON IT!

This week’s Wednesday’s WOW! #77 is a fun, versatile product that I have just noticed.  I thought you might like to see just how versatile this product is.

We are looking at the Scalloped Note Cards and Envelopes.

With these Note Cards and Envelopes you receive 5 each of 4 colours: Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Powder Pink, Terracotta Tile.

They make very quick cards that have that nice decorative scalloped edge.

And don’t forget to stamp the envelopes.

Don’t just think of them as the cards and envelopes though.

These are created by Stampin’ Up! artists.  Aren’t they sweet. Sorry I am not sure exactly how this treat box below is made but it is using the notecard scored and folded.

How clever is this treat holder? Just pop a little treat in the envelope and give it to someone special.

These are very inexpensive to have some quick cards and packaging on hand.

They are available in store now -> HERE.  $14 for 20.

What do you think of them??  Pop them in your next order.

Have a great day,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #76 – WHAT’S WITH THE NEW CLEANING PAD!

Wednesday’s WOW #76 we are looking at a cool new product today.  The New Stamp Cleaning Pad.  Perhaps you have seen it in the catalogue and was curious about it Or maybe you hadn’t even noticed.  (see page 182). I know it took a few looks before I saw it. 

What’s this Cleaning Pad about?

This cool new Stampin’ Up! Cleaning Pad is small in size, about the size of an inkpad, and is great if you are packing for a stamp day or a stamp camp.  It easily fits in your little tote.  Or if you are at home and not wanting to get your larger Stampin’ Scrub out.

It already has a cleaner on it so there is no need for additional spray mists or water.  When it dries out there is a Cleaning Pad Refill that you can buy very reasonably priced to re-moisten it.

Here is an information block with more information.  It is ready for you to PIN too for future reference.

Have a great day,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #53 – RECTANGLE STITCHED FRAMELITS SIZES!

Wednesday’s WOW! #53 – Let’s talk about those cool Rectangle Stitched Framelits.  Have you seen them in the Catalogue? I LOVE them.

I have seen a few posts around with the Imperial measurements so I thought I would work out the Metric sizes for those of you who use metric measurements.  This might help you when you are choosing which Framelits to use and how they might layer together.

Here you go.  I hope it is a ready reference for you.

I have to say it’s a cool pattern with the measurements isn’t it?

I will talk more about ways to use them in later posts but for now I hope this is useful.

You NEED these Framelits in your collection.  I tell you they won’t leave your craft desk.  There are so many uses for them.

For now, grab them in my store -> HERE.  They are $61 Aus  Please use the Host Code: Q6XB6QR6

Thanks for stopping by,

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #30 – DID YOU SEE THE THINLITS CUTTING GUIDE??

You know you go through the catalogue so many times and still discover things in there.  It is a wealth of inspiration and ideas.  I discovered this recently and thought I would share it for our Wednesday’s WOW! today.  Perhaps I am a little late to the party here and you already know about it but if you are like me then let me tell you…

On page 215 of the 2018 Catalogue is a Die cutting and embossing guide.  Here it is here for reference.  I hadn’t read it that closely previously.

The Framelits, Edgelits and Thinlits are coloured coded in the catalogue (page 215-221) to show which sandwich to assemble on your Big Shot platform when cutting or embossing.  Sometimes it can be confusing how to get the best result when you use your dies.

  • The grey shaded box is for the Standard dies to simply cut.
  • The Pear Pizzazz coloured box are for more detailed dies and it recommends to use the Precision Plate. (That is a personal preference I find).  You may like to use an extra shim from paper or card in your own platform.  Each Big Shot is calibrated differently so just trial that in your own.  Note too: the Thin Die Adapter mentioned is the separate piece you get with the new Big Shot Platforms.  Earlier styles use a “book” type platform with “pages” to open.  In this case, you will use the “book” closed.
  • The Coastal Cabana coloured box is how to use the dies for embossing but not cutting.  It is suggested to the use the Magnetic Platform to keep your dies in place when embossing.  (How fun is it that you can emboss with some of your dies!!). 🙂

So in the catalogue showing all the dies the boxes are colour-coded to help you.  (Ok, I thought at first it was all just pretty colours happening!!)

Here is an example shown on p217.

Now when you are using the dies you can refer back to the guide to see how to set up your platform. You could always print off the chart and have it near your Big Shot to remind you. When you use them often you will remember without referring back to it.

Is that helpful??  I hope I wasn’t alone here.

Ok, back to creating now. 🙂
