Some More Stampin’ Projects

At my Stampin’ Up! retirement party last night, I had two make-and-take projects for my guests.

One was this scallop box:

Instructions can be found on SplitCoastStampers resources page (a link to SCS is on the right of this page). I used Roses in Winter – another great set that is retiring – what am I going to stamp with in July!?!?!

I also showed how to include a little three dimensional rose on the side of the box. You just stamp the three different size rose images (once each) onto white cardstock and cut out the images. Then you spritz them with water, roll the edges and adhere them to each other. You can also add in a few more layers if you want a fuller rose.

The other project was a little scrapbook/photo album made from Stampin’ Up!’s clear envelopes:

I used Sparkling Summer (need I say it again? RETIRING!) and A is for Adorable to stamp the cover and added a strip of Au Chocolate and some ribbons as a binding.

The inside is a stack of clear envelopes adhered to each other by the tabs and attached to the two covers with the ribbon bindings:

I just threw in some photos of my family at the beach, but I could change them out since the edge of the envelope is accessible.

This inspired me to create another little scrapbook for our church secretary who is retiring this week. My pastor gave me some notecards (just 3X5 index cards) on which parishioners had written down messages for the retiring secretary. She asked me to put them together into a book and I thought I would use the same basic idea.

I took 2 pieces of chipboard and adhered some patterned paper to the fronts and backs. I cut the chipboard pieces just slightly larger than the width of two sets of envelopes. I added a chipboard monogram colored with Chocolate Chip ink to the cover and used ribbons to keep it together. Here’s the cover:

The paper is from Scrapbook Walls, I think.

Then I took the notecards and matted them onto standard card-sized pieces of Cameo Coral and Old Olive cardstock. I added just a strip of patterned paper to each one to make it a bit more detailed, but still keep it simple.

I also stamped the notecards with Mixed Bouquet in Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip to make them pretty.

For those notecards with writing on the back as well, I folded the notecards about 1/4 inch from the left side and then adhered them as a ‘hinge’ inside the page so that the back is accessible.

I think this turned out really well – I hope she likes it!
