Good morning and happy Friday to you all. I am so glad that the weekend is so close at hand! For today’s post I somewhat cased a project from this month’s Stampin’ Success. That’s the magazine that Stampin’ Up! sends out to us Demonstrators every month. It’s packed with tips, projects and suggestions for your business. I love it and look forward to it all the time. The Workshop project this month is Post-It holder matchbooks. I love when you can make something that is so simple but looks so nice and serves a purpose. The first one that I made is the butterfly one. I used Crumb Cake Card Stock for the base. The butterfly is from the Butterfly Prints Stamp Set and is stamped in Perfect Plum on Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used the Butterfly Punch to punch it out and then stamped the sentiment and the antennae on the So Saffron Card Stock. I used a Neutrals Collection Brad to secure it and then mounted it on some Perfect Plum Card Stock with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch along the bottom lip and placed a piece of So Saffron 3/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon (Retired) around it. The flowers are punched out using the Boho Blossoms Punch and fastened with another brad. For the second one I used Real Red Card Stock for the base. The stamped image is from the Easy Events Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Black Classic Stampin’ Ink. I used an eye shadow applicator (like a mini sponge dauber!) to shade in the tree and grass with Lucky Limeade Ink. I then colored in the heart with Real Red and the trunk with Soft Suede Markers. The backing is Lucky Limeade and that is adhered to piece of Soft Suede that I ran through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The lip of this one is punched using the Eyelet Border Punch. I punched out a piece of Lucky Limeade with the Scallop Oval Punch and placed some Soft Suede 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon round it. I’m loving these little matchbooks and they would make great gifts for co-workers or just about anybody! Thanks you so much for stopping by and have an awesome Friday!
