Technique Class Binder

Technique binder

This is my Stampin' Up! 6×6 Real Red Ring Binder that I use for my techniques.  If you would like to see pictures of my other pages, post a comment below.  Each person that attends any of my technique classes receives a 6×6 page with printed instruction for each technique that is covered during that class.  As you can see, I am using a different color card stock for each technique to give my class attendees a chance to see all the wonderful Stampin' Up! card stock colors.  Another item that you will notices is a sample of the technique on each page.  During my class I make a sample of a particular technique that is ATC size (for the most part) and each person makes a sample for their reference page.  After everyone has completed their sample, we make a card using the technique that was just learned.

Punchy Techniques

image from www.jillsstampingcorner.comWe got punchy yesterday at my technique class.  What do you do at a technique class? 

Of course, have a lot of fun and enjoy friends.  Let's see what else is going on…Julia is starting her wish list after being shown how to do the first technique.  Tawni is working on her sample of the technique.  Terri has finished her sample and is putting it on her 6×6 technique reference card.

 

At this month's technique class we worked on 3 different techniques using various Stampin' Up! punches.  I love the punches.

image from www.jillsstampingcorner.comThe first technique that we did was a ribbon flower.  For the sample on my 6×6 reference card I used real red card stock, 1/8" hand-held punch, 1/16" hand-held punch, very vanilla taffeta ribbon, and a rhinestone brad.  I learned how to do this flower from a tutorial made by Jennifer Thomas, one of my UDI Sisters.  You can see the full tutorial by clicking on the link.

Since Stampin' Up! has the great Fresh Cut Sneak Peek special going, we used the Fresh Cut stamp set and Note Cards for a cards.

Card Stock:  Sage Shadow, Lovely Lilac

Ink:  Sage Shadow, Lovely Lilac

Accessories:  Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, 5-Petal Punch, Scallop Punch, Rhinestone Brad.

image from www.jillsstampingcorner.comThe second technique that we did was a 5-Petal Daisy that was created by Judi Harvey, who is also one of my UDI Sisters.  You can see Judi's 5-Petal tutorial by clicking the link.  The card at the bottom of her tutorial is the card that she sent me for my birthday.

I just receive my One of a Kind stamp set and HAD to play with it.  I also think this set goes well with this technique. 

Stamp Set:  One of a Kind

Card Stock:  East Coast Prep Designer Series Paper, Whisper White

Ink:  Tempting Turquoise, More Mustard, Real Read

Accessories:  5-Petal Punch, Boho Punch, Tempting Turquoise Brad

Please don’t leave your Stamping Bag unattended.

If you are like me, you have to have some type of a stamping bag.  If you ever plan on going somewhere to do a little stamping, having some type of a bag to carry your supplies is essential.  One of my bags that I carry on a daily basis is my "Stamping Is My Business" bag.  This bag I use to carry my business supplies. 

SIMB Bag

I usually have a copy of the current catalogs, some order forms, my calendar, just to name a few items.  Most of the time I know exactly where this bag is and usually it is not too far away from me.  However, there was on day I put my bag on the love-seat when I got home from work.  I don't worry about my bag when I am at home…I am at home, it is safe, nothing is going to happen to it.  Just a little warning, from experence I might add, if you ever leave your bag unattended, you might find something in your bag that you don't remember putting in, something a little unexpected.

SIMB Bag 2

SIMB Bag 3 In this case, everything turned out to be just fine.  This is the newest addition to our family and he joins me, not only in my stamping bag, but also in the stamping room.

So I just ask, be careful with your stamping bag.  I guess I will need to check mine for any freeloader before leaving the house.

Please don’t leave your Stamping Bag unattended.

An Idea for Home Wine and Beer Makers, and of course…stampers

My husband and I have recently started to make our own wine and he makes his own beer.  Why am I posting about wine and beer?  Well, we had a friend come to our house to help with a project and as a “thank you” to him my husband wanted to give him a bottle of our wine, and he asked me if I could do some kind of a label for the bottle.  This is what I came up with, and I decided to do labels for our remaining bottles.


Wine Label I used 4×2 mailing labels to do the actual label, but did use Stampin‘ Up!Taken with Teal card stock and ink.  I used the little wine, cheese and grape stamp from the Voilà stamp set.


When I was making the labels, to help the label fit the bottle better, I curled the card stock after I put the label on.  I placed the label at the edge of my table and pulled it down and toward me to make the card stock curl. I did this process a couple of times.  After curling it I applied my adhesive and put the label on the bottle.


Label curl


Well, since we were giving the bottle as a thank you gift, I had to make a little thank you tag.  Since I was making tags, I thought I would make one for my dad for Father’s Day, and make an extra Thank You tag.  Yes, I am one of those girls that calls her father…Daddy.


Wine bottle tags


For the tag I still used Taken with Teal card stock and ink.  I use the retired Stampin‘ Up! Designer Label, Terrific Tags, and Euphoria Alphabet & Numbers stamp sets.  On my tag punch tag I wanted to add a little color by using a flower from the Accents & Elements with a silver brad.  I cut a piece of the 3/8″ Twill Tape (big enough to slid over the neck of the bottle), used the 1/16″ circle hand held punch and used a brad to hold it together and used the snail adhesive to put the tag on the tape.  I hope this will give you ideas for other things that you could put labels on.

Teacher Gift Idea – Post-It-Notes

image from www.jillsstampingcorner.com

I was speaking with my cousin Crissie early this week and she was asking me
about ideas that her daughter Ashley could give to her teachers as gifts.  Well,
they live about 7 hours away from me which would make it a little difficult to
get together to work on this project.  So, Crissie sent me a picture of Ashley's
school colors from Upthegrove Elementary School, and I got busy stamping and creating.

What better colors to work with.  For these post-it-note holders I used Real
Red, Brilliant Blue and Whisper White.

I really had fun working on this project for Crissie and Ashley, and we are
working on a date this summer to get together so both Crissie and Ashley can
have some hands-on play time.

image from www.jillsstampingcorner.comThe stamp sets that I used are retired sets:  Canvas background, Stars &
Swirls, and Star Studded Stampin' Around.  Let's see, what other fun things did
I use?  I used some Real Red Prints Pack Designer Serise Paper that is a Level 1
Hostess gift.  I also used the star shapes from the On Board Simon Upper. Other
accessories were Chunky Blue Glitter and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Bold Brights
Brilliant Blue and Real Red Brads, and Red Rhinestone Brads.

I have added pictures of each holder so you can get a better look.
