The Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog Starts Today!

It's finally HERE!  The Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog is LIVE!  To view the online version of the Occasions Mini Catalog and the stamping supplies, please click the link below.





As I promised, here is the Holder for my Petite Pocket Mini Scrapbook I shared with you yesterday.  I love the new Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I love it even better with the coordinating stamp set (Bordering on Romance) and embossing folders (Adorning Accents)!!! 



I used the bracket edge design of the Adorning Accents Edgelits die in two different ways.  I wanted to have an easy opening inside of the holder, so I cut the opening with a part of the die to have a curved edge (see top of the photo).  One tip I shared with my Scrapbooking Club girls was to tape the die onto one cutting pad so that it will not move when making the sandwich.  We even marked the center of the die and paper so that it was easier to position the paper. 



For the front flap of the holder, I ran it through the Big Shot using the die and then stamped the edge with the coordinating stamp set (Bordering on Romance).  The Edgelits dies use the same thin wafer-like design as Stampin' Up! Framelits, so you can see where you are placing the design before you cut.  Plus if you use the Stampin' Up! clear-mount stamps, you will know where you are stamping too. 


Here is another new technique that I shared with the girls.  Did you know you can color the Stampin' Up! Silver Glimmer Paper to create your own custom colored glimmer paper?  If you have Classic ink refill, a sponge dauber and a heat tool on hand (I'm sure you do!), you can do that in a few minutes! 

Here is How to Color Stampin' Up! Silver Glimmer Paper:
  1. Using a sponge dauber apply Classic ink refill (we used Pretty in Pink) onto a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper.  (If you have your Classic ink pad, just squeeze a small amount of Classic ink refill in the back of your pad.)
  2. Heat your Glimmer Paper with a Heat Tool to set the color.
Please note that different colors may have different results. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  Hope you have a wonderful day.
