Organization Station by Project Life by Stampin' Up!

Many of my customers are excited about the new line of memory keeping products. Project Life by Stampin' Up! is the simple, efficient, and fun way to keep your memories with a minimum of hassle, supplies, and time. But what if your customers aren't scrapbookers? But Project Life by Stampin' Up! isn't only for scrapbooking and memory keeping! I love how the stylish designs, coordinating colors, stamp images, and embellishments can be used for all kinds of paper crafting beyond the obvious.

Here is my first version on using these supplies in a non-traditional way - AND I LOVE IT! This is an Organization Station. You can use it in a variety of ways. Here I keep all my dates, favorite pictures, to-do list and my l-o-n-g wishlist of Stampin' Up! products to order. I used Microsoft Word to create the lists. I'll be sure to send it to you when you purchase your Project Life by Stampin' Up! products at my store.

Project Life by Stampin' Up! Organization Station

In the above shot of my Organization Station I'm using the Design 1 12" X 12" Project Life Photo Pocket Pages. A package includes 12 pages of the same design of polypropylene page protectors. These page protectors are photo-safe and fun to draw on using the dry eraser pens. We also have a Variety Pack 12" X 12" Project Life Photo Pocket Pages with 2 ea. of 6 designs which would work well. I bought the same design because I'm going to make a few for my friends and famlily.

What I like about my organization station is I can move 4x6 pictures in and out during the seasons. I can also change the background cards based on the season as well. So it serves as a decoration and hard working tool in my house.

Here is another spin on the organization station. This one is using the Seasonal Snapshot Project© Life Accessory Pack to accessorize. Great fun for the kids to get involved.

This one would be great as your go-to station for fall and holidays. You could start making lists of activities to be done for each holiday. Isn't that cool? This version uses the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life Card Collection which was just released yesterday. It includes cards for fall, school, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentines. It's only $15.95 for 100 cards.

If you think Project Life by Stampin' Up! is just for memory keeping then I hope I have surprised you. Stay tuned for more suprises!

If you are in the Portland/Vancouver area, I would love for you to join one of my classes coming up that feature these products.

Yee-Haw - New Stamp Set Roundup

Can I Get a Yee-Haw?When I attended Inspire. Create. Share. Convention in July this set was displayed and ten lucky attendees even took it home (yeah...not me though). I'm thrilled to share it with you now. TA-DAH!

The Yee-Haw Photopolymer Stamp Set is Stampin' Up!'s latest photopolymer stamp set. It has a bunch of fun sentiments. Some feel the lasso is just too rootin’ tootin’ cute.

The sheriff’s badge is perfect for a child's birthday party - don't you think? You can personalize the gift tag with someone's name in the “sheriff” sentiment which was purposely left separate from the badge just for that reason.

Here are a few samples that show how the images can be used to make a soft, pretty card or a sweet little card for a baby shower, a fun thank you note for a friend, or a colorful celebration card.

These two are mighty prurdy!

Melody, the concept artist, had so much fun creating and then playing with this set. I hope that you will, too. Now mosey on over to the online store and buy yourself one . . . and one for a friend, too!

Easel Card Tutorial

Send a card that will be displayed like the work of art it is! Easel Cards fold flat for easy mailing and unfold easily to create a freestanding display. Easel Cards are a hit for holidays, birthdays, and makes great photo cards, too.

STEP 1: Score 4-1/4” x 11” cardstock at 2-1/4” and 5-1/2”. (Garden Green cardstock is shown) Fold cardstock in half on the 5-1/2” score line just as if you are making a regular card body. Fold the 2-1/4” score line back in towards the inside of the card.

STEP 2: Add Sticky Strip to the bottom of the 2-1/4” scored section leaving at least 1/4” from left, right and bottom edges. Add Sticky Strip to the same section just under the score line at 2-1/4” and at least 1/4” from left and right edges.

STEP 3: Refold the 4-1/4” x 11” cardstock in half at the 5-1/2” score line and lay flat on the work surface with the 2-1/4” section with Sticky Strip face up. Center 4-1/8” x 5-3/8” cardstock on card front. (Cherry Cobbler cardstock shown.) Adhere layer only to the 2-1/4” section using the Sticky Strip.

STEP 4: When the card body is folded at the 2-1/4” scored line the bottom of the Cherry Cobbler cardstock is adhered to it, but the top portion is loose allowing it to create the back of the easel card.

STEP 5: Adhere a cardstock strip or layers of cardstock about 2" from the inside bottom edge of the card body to create a stopper to hold the Easel card standing open. (Sample shows 2" x 4-1/4” strip of Designer Series Paper layered with 3/4" x 4-1/4" strips of Early Espresso cardstock and ribbon).

Finish card by adding a stamped or heat embossed image or even a favorite photo.
