Hello and welcome to Stampin’ Up! Saturday friends! Are you ready for some absolutely amazing projects from our friends at Stampin’ Up!? These demonstrators have really pulled out all the stops and have some fabulous projects to show us with the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life product line!
So if you know Project Life, you know that these products were originally created for pocket page style scrapbooking, and we love that! But do you want to see some out-of-the pocket ideas? First up is demonstrator Colleen Vassos. You’ll love what she has to share.
“Stampin’ Up!‘s Kraft Cardstock is perfect for making boxes. Do some decorating with gold embossing and add Project Life Card (yep that’s a Project Life card on the top of the box!) and you can turn plain tea lights into a dazzling gift of gold and glitter!”
“Stamping on candles is super fun and easy. After stamping, apply Sticky Strip around the tealight and roll in glitter. A wow gift and packaging, and Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating products make it so easy.”
“Wouldn’t this make a great hostess gift? Fill a Christmas ornament with dip mix (or spices, tea, cookie sprinkles), include the recipe, and you’ve got a spectacular gift! Stampin’ Up! has so many boxes and bags that are perfect if you are short on time like me, nurse by day, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator by night! And where’d I get the polka dot paper? I cut up one of the 4 x 6 Project Life Cards of course!”
“This mini album is sure to be a star! Project Life makes memory keeping so easy! Just pop the cards in to page protectors, add pictures and journaling and done! Here I used the Project Life cards to make a star shaped album.”
“Just open the album up and tie the ribbon to form a star shape. This album is all ready for photos to add from Christmas 2014. Wouldn’t this make a great gift? The album looks complicated, but it is actually very easy.”
“Are you a busy parent or do you know a busy parent? This gift is for you! Everything you need to set out for Santa (except for the milk) and a Project Life Card attached with a binder clip so you can easily detach the card and place in your Project Life album page about Christmas Eve! A straw with mustache for Santa’s milk, cookies for Santa and food for the reindeer (the reindeer food is actually oatmeal and colored sugar-just in case those little ones decide to taste it). And don’t you think the packaging looks Santa Claus-y? I am sure that is a real word…”
“I live in Saskatoon, so mitts are a necessity. And if you are like me, an extra pair or two are always welcome! It seems I misplace a pair every other week all winter. For a thoughtful gift, just tuck in some nail polish and a gift certificate for a manicure too. I used the Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set, and pieces of the Project Life Card and Accessory Pack. Doesn’t the red paper remind you of knitted mittens?”
Thank you so much Colleen for showing us some amazing ideas for all our Project Life by Stampin’ Up! products!
Up next is Cindy Major with some equally fabulous ides!
“This page shows what we could call ‘Project Life out-of-pocket scrapbooking’. The cards can certainly be used on regular scrapbooking pages for those who prefer to go down the more traditional road. I created a frame around my page using the Simply Scored and added a row of stamping using the Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set in between the scored lines on each side for some added detail.”
“The Project Life cards can be used as patterned paper or sentiments on cards. And don't forget you can cut them up to combine them on one project (cutting your first card is hard – it gets easier afterwards!). On this card, I added a strip from a snowflake-pattern card to the "Most wonderful time of the year" card, plus a narrow strip of striped paper from a third card. And the Project Life Corner Rounder punch is perfect to add a fun finishing touch!”
“Project Life cards make great tags! You can simply punch a hole at the top of the card itself to insert ribbon or if you want something fancier, you can add a strip of glimmer paper and punch the top using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, as shown here. Those cute stockings come straight from the Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set.”
“I turned a Project Life card into a shaker using the Stars Framelits Dies. I used a small star die to cut the opening in my Project Life card, then a larger star die to cut two pieces of vellum cardstock. I used one of our piercing templates to poke holes around all three stars, then stitched around the vellum pieces and the window and create the shaker. I slipped some Frosted Sequins inside the two pieces of vellum – they are silver, but from underneath the vellum, they look white! As for the colorful sequins added to the front of the card, they are from the Holiday Snapshots accessory pack.”
“I love the Fry Box Bigz Die because it can be assembled in 20 seconds flat, which is great for mass-production. I die-cut the box out of Gold Glimmer Paper and I lined the inside part with a Project Life card. Here's a tip: place the card on the die and after you've run it through the Big Shot, follow the score lines with your scissors to take of the sides. Then you get the exact shape needed to glue the card inside the box. The Santa belt in the front was created with a sticker from the Holiday Snapshots accessory pack.”
Thank you so much Colleen and Cindy for showing us the Project Life is for so much more than pocket style memory keeping. The possibilities are endless!
