Four Quick Cards

What is this you may ask and how do I use it?

These are a newer product that SU came out with. The official name is "Printed Window Sheets" I guess that really says it all. They are window sheets that are printed with beautiful designs. In this current catalog there are three different designs and two different sizes. They can be found on page 169 of the catalog.

The one shown above is called Clearly Thanks (8-1/2 x 11). Simply put: cut the window sheet into fourths and mount on some card stock and you are done. That is why I labeled this post four quick cards. Doesn't get much easier then that.

If you look hard enough at the pictures you can see how I adhered the window sheets to the card stock. For example: the rust card with the white ribbon is attached with the two rhinestone brads. The Yellow card is adhered with the yellow ribbon and so on.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue

Easy to make Book Markers

We made these book markers at my Open House in August Celebrating the release of Stampin' Up!s new Catalog/Idea Book What I enjoy about these book markers is they fit comfortably and snug on the corner of your book. There is nothing on this book marker to damage the pages of your precious reading material.

This is a great project for kids to make. Little supervision is needed and you really don't use a ton of supplies. If anything this is a great scrap project. Use all the scrap paper and card stock you have laying around add a little adhesive and you are done.

Supplies I used:

Paper Basic Gray 108692 and DSP Nouveau Chic 115670

Punch: 5 petal flower 109041

Corduroy Button: Kraft 114340

You will need a 4x4 or 5x5 piece of card stock. I used a 4x4 and therefore the measurements are from that format.

1) 4x4 piece of card stock

2) score at 2" both vertical and horizontal

3) as shown in Fig. 2 cut out one corner section

4) now fold in the other two sides and you have made your book marker!

Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by, Sue

It's all in the packaging

This container once housed strawberries from the grocery store. Now it will house cookies, cards, candy, lotions, or candles. Anything I want it to! It's all in the packaging, right!

This project was possible with the help of my Big Shot die cutting machine. The two dies I used were:

1) Top Note (the yellow and white paper)

2) Flower Daises#2

The center of the flower is our new Corduroy Buttons. They add a great texture to your artwork plus majority of these buttons are brads. Completly easy to work with!
