Mini Desk Calendar with Lift Me Up Bundle

Hi everyone,

I had lots of fun this week sharing on my Facebook Live video how to make these handy little desktop calendars, that are quick and easy to create!  I used the Lift me Up bundle to decorate them, combined with the stitched shape framelits (don’t you love how those framelits really add pop to your images and backgrounds!)

These are so handy to keep on your desk or by a phone for a quick reference for dates.  I managed to pick up some of these little calendars at a local Papercraft Show, but they can usually be found online if you are looking for some.

And you can get the gorgeous Carried Away Designer Series Paper (DSP) for FREE when you spend $90! That’s as easy as purchasing the Lift Me Up Bundle in clear mount and a pack of Night of Navy Cardstock! You can shop securely anytime in my online store HERE from ANYWHERE in Australia!

Below is the list and measurements of what you need to make your very own calendars and go to My Paper Oasis Youtube channel to see how to create it 🙂

What you need –

Base – Night of Navy Cardstock: a piece 8″ x 4″ and scored at 4″ and 6″ on long side; a piece 4″ x 3 3/4″ for top section; a piece 3 1/8″ x 2″ for under the calendar itself.

DSP (Carried Away) – a piece 3 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ for top section and a piece 3 7/8″ x 2 3/8″ for under calendar.

Scrap of Mint Macaron for largest square of Stitched Shape Framelits.

Whisper White for stamped image and cloud.

CTC112 – Cupcakes and Carousels

We are back this week for another CASEing the Catty Challenge!  We have had some fantastic entries over on our Facebook Page – so keep them coming – we are so glad you are enjoying the new way to play along!  This week for our challenge we are taking inspiration form the Cupcakes and Carousel section of the Occasions Catalogue on pages 8 – 13.  Remember, you don’t have to have any of the stamps sets to play along, you just use the images in the catalogue to spur your creativity! It may be the paper, colours used, images, designs or layouts that you use to inspire you to create your project!

I cannot tell you how much I love this suite (I know – I love just about all of them! Lol) – but this suite makes it easy! And it has a real vintage feel about it! I love the DSP paper stack (I just wish they were 12×12!), the colours that are used in the suite and the stamp sets! It made it so easy to create my projects…and I guess I took inspiration from it all!

The one thing that really caught my eye in this picture were the Rosette’s . I used to love making these, but had forgotten about them – until now! So I knew I had to use them for this challenge.

I set about creating a scrapbook page using the Carousel Birthday Set – it came together so quickly for me, which surprised me, because I am not a natural scrapbooker!  It just goes to show…when you have the right products its easier to create!

Do you see the stamped Carousel Horse Image on my page?  I took inspiration from one of the actual papers in the DSP stack- this one –

I love the way they looked, so I made my own.  Its easy to do – just stamp your image in the lightest base colour (in this case peekaboo peach) and the ink up other ares using a sponge dauber with your stronger colours (calypso coral and early espresso). See – easy and SUPER effective!

I didn’t stop there with this suite either.  I decided to have a bit of fun and made this 3D carousel, well, just because I could, using a large rosette for the roof! And if you are wondering how the centre is made – it’s from our empty ribbon spools – I never throw them out! Lol.

I hope you enjoyed these creations this week!  This suite is LOADS of fun, so I encourage you to have a play and join the challenge.  Simply upload a picture of your creation to the album on the Facebook page HERE.

Now it’s time to hop on over to the wonderful Julia Quinn and see what she has created for you all!

Keep crafting!

Christmas or Birthday Money Pouch Gift Pocket

A very Merry Christmas to you all!

So today I wanted to share with you all how easy it is to create a fancy gift pouch that you can whip up in minutes to give someone a gift of cash,  gift card or even movie vouchers.

 

So simple, so fast to create, but a gorgeous way to present your gift!  I even added a panel to write your message on the inside of the birthday one –

What do you think?

If you would like to make some of your own, here are the measurements –

Pouch – 7 3/4″ x 7 1/2″.  Score on long side at 2 1/4″ and 5″. Fold and burnish. Apply adhesive to each edge of small flap.

Christmas Sampler Shadow Box

Hi Everyone!

I absolutely love how this project has turned out so I had to do another quick share with you this week!!!

I had a special weekend class where the attendees got to make this lovely 12″ x 12″ frame to assist their Christmas Decorating this year.  It was a huge hit!  The ladies even starting embellishing with ‘tinsel’ around the tree, we adhered bells to just about everything, and a load of fun was had! And now it’s hanging in pride of place in my house!

It was sooo hard to get a good picture without the glare! And believe it or not, the sentiment is embossed with the gorgeous new glitter embossing powder! It adds such a sparkle!

I have dressed it up a bit more now with our mini jingle bells and twine! Its a great way to display all those christmas products you have on hand….and if you don’t, why not get together with a friend a share your supplies. But you had better hurry to get your hands on the Candy Cane Lane DSP – as it’s on the Year End Clearout Sale!

Have fun creating!

Twist and Pop Panel Cards – Wow for any occasion!

Hi everyone!

Well it’s definitely drawing closer to Christmas and the rush is definitely real!

Every year at Christmas, I like to have at least one ‘WOW’ card to give to special people – my nan in particular – she LOVES a special card and has requested that I make one for her daughter (my Aunty) this year.

Now I had seen quite a few of these Twist and Pop Cards for a while – they are currently very popular – so I set about finding a tutorial from someone who had made one.  I came across a few that used a full A4 piece cut and scored and inserted into the card.  But when you are trying to run a class, unless everyone remembers to bring their paper trimmers, its a little impractical and time consuming to have everyone take turns scoring and cutting  their cardstock.  I came across a tutorial from Sincerely Rina.  She made a card using 12″ cardstock.  The majority of my card is A4 size, so I altered my card to that so it could fit in a regular envelope for posting. I made one Christmas design and one birthday design, and my youtube clip is another birthday card design.

This first design was using our Blooms and Bliss DSP and Flourishing Phrases Bundle.

 

The Christmas design was using the Presents and Pinecones DSP and the Tin of Tags Stamp Set.

 

You can learn how to create your very own over at my You Tube Channel by clicking here.

Measurements are :

Card Base – A4 cardstock cut on short side at 4 1/8″ (4 1/8″ x 11 3/4″)

Card Panel – 3 1/2″ x 10″ scored at 2 1/2″, 5″, and 7 1/2″ and folded from the left – valley, mountain, valley (mountain fold needs to be in the middle)

Folding Mechanism – 3 1/2″ x 8″ scored on short side at 1 3/4″ and mark on long sides at 2 1/4″ and 5 3/4″

Card front base cardstock – 5 3/8″ x 3 5/8″

Card front DSP – 5 1/8″ x 3 3/8″

Insert squares Cardstock – 3 5/8″ x 3 1/2″

Insert Squares white 3 3/8″ x 3 1/4″

Original post from Sincerely Rina can be found here

Happy crafting!

Gift Box Punch Board for On Stage Roomie Gifts

Hi everyone.

I was back on Sunday Night for a Stamp It Sunday live Facebook video again!

It took LOTS of cups of tea to recover from the fun of our Stampin’ Up! 2016 On Stage Live Event from the 3-6th of November, but it was sooooo much fun!  There are lots of new goodies that I am going to enjoy sharing with you all over the coming weeks to get you creating!

img_1412

Here I am after check in – ready to get started!

img_1572

The weather was gorgeous the entire time. And Southbank was buzzing in the evenings!

So for my Stamp It Sunday Video I decided to show you the pillow gifts I made for my room mates!

I had been to LUSH to source something to help the girls relax, unwind and invigorate themselves ready for the new catalogue and next year.  LUSH have the most amazing bath products.  I had come across one called ‘Dragon’s Egg’ in the past and it smelt amazing, all the things I just mentioned for the girls rolled into one delicious bath bomb! So I grabbed a few of those and headed off to my craft room, trusting that my punch boards would help me package these beauties just right!

So out came the trusty Gift Box Punch Board. I honestly have to say that I love how simple it is to create your own special packaging with these Punch Boards. A simple Belly Band and some ribbon later, and our bath bomb was all set to deliver!

Gift Box Punch Board Pillow Gifts for roomies 2016 On Stage Stampin Up event, by My Paper Oasis. Gift Box Punch Board, gift packaging, gift boxes, simple packaging, boxes for bath bombs.

The Irresistibly Floral Speciality DSP can be teamed with any colour Designer Paper, but I chose Blooms and Bliss for my Belly Band, a bit of Coordinating Sweet Sugarplum ribbon and a tag finished it all off beautifully. So simple – So elegant! And those Stitched Framelits set EVERYTHING off so well! They are a must for every craft room!

Here are the measurements so you can Make It To –

My gift box is a 10″ x 10″ piece of DSP to make the 3.25 x 3.25 x 3.25 box as written on the Punch Board.

The belly band is made my cutting 2 pieces of DSP 1 3/4″ x 7″ and scoring them both at 1/2″, 2 1/4″ and 5 1/2″.

Join the pieces along the 1/2″ end – joining right sides together. Punch the opposite end of both of the Belly Band pieces using the scallop tag topper punch.  Wrap around your box and secure with ribbon.

Take a look at the video at My Paper Oasis You Tube Channel to watch how its done.

Gift Bag Punch Board – bags for any occasion!

Hi everyone,

Today I wanted to pop by and show you just how easy it is to use our Gift Bag Punch Board to create bags for any and all occasions.

The Gift Bag Punch Board is one of those tools that I have found I cannot live without.  It has helped me out on many occasions when stuck for a quick packaging idea.  They make great party favour bags, bags for jewellery, makeup, lollies, chocolates, little thank you gifts, christmas gifts…..you get the idea! I have even made minion party bags using this tool where the kids for the party decorated their own bag as a minion before filling it up with goodies to take home! It was a HUGE hit!

And one of my favourite things to do when I can, is making a matching gift bag and card! Such a cute idea.  And imaging, you can create personalised cards and bags that suit the individual! Its all in the decorating and paper choice!

Here was one I created for my video – because I love the Pop of Paradise Stamp Set and my daughter LOVES flamingos, so I know it will come in handy shortly for a little gift of makeup, nail polish or jewellery!

Gift Bag Punch Board tutorial by My Paper Oasis, Stampin Up Pop of Pink Paper and Pop Of Paradise stamp set, Gift bags, wrapping, presents, packaging, christmas packaging

Of course there are lots of other ideas you can create, not to mention all sorts of sizes! The possibilities are endless.

Gift Bag Punch Board tutorial by My Paper Oasis, Stampin Up Pop of Pink Paper and Pop Of Paradise stamp set, Gift bags, wrapping, presents, packaging, christmas packaging

You can even create boxes with this tool by omitting to score the 3 lines to create your side fold. Instant box!

You don’t have to punch holes to thread ribbons. You can close the bags using any fancy clips or pegs you may have on hand.

You can even create a flap to fold over on your bag like this one.

Gift Bag Punch Board tutorial by My Paper Oasis, Stampin Up Pop of Pink Paper and Pop Of Paradise stamp set, Gift bags, wrapping, presents, packaging, christmas packaging

Take a look at my Youtube video to see how to create a fast and simple gift bag at My Paper Oasis.

Here’s how you cut your bag to create that flap.

  1. Score your card stock as normal.
  2. Turn your cardstock / DSP so the straight edge is now against the punch on the board. Move the card stock/ DSP edge along the board until your large scored area that is along the right hand edge of your card stock / DSP is under the punch, with the edge of the cardstock / paper in line with the punch point on the board.  Punch the corner.
  3. Move the cardstock / DSP along to the next score line and punch and then score along the horizontal line.
  4. then move the rest of the cardstock / DSP along the punch board just scoring along the horizontal line. Refer to image 1.
  5. Then trim along the score line up to the punch mark. Refer to image 2.
  6. Fold and adhere as normal.
  7. You just need to make sure when creating this type of bag, that you allow an extra 1 1/2 inches in length for your bag for the top fold too.

I do hope you have a chance to create some of your own special and unique gift bags to give to friends and family. They will love the personal touch! If you have any questions just leave a comment and I will be happy to help 🙂

Serene Scenery Framed Picture and card

 

I absolutely love our new Serene Scenery DSP.  It is so versatile and has so many images to use as backgrounds.  So I decided to base a class around using this product. I didn’t want to make just a card for this project.  I really wanted to make something for my house too.

We started class creating this card.  It’s my CASE of the little bag in the catty on page 102. I also wanted it to tie in with my other project – so I added the starfish from Picture Perfect too!

serene scenery, my paper oasis, stampin up, scenic sayings, card, picture perfect

But we didn’t stop there for this class! When I was looking through the DSP the ‘beach’ page really caught my eye! I mean there are so many pretty backgrounds – but I LOVE the beach!  So I set about creating something for my home. A pretty framed project that would literally take me there!  Here’s what I came up with –

serene scenery, my paper oasis, stampin up, picture perfect, by the tide, beach scene, beach frame

It’s sooooooo pretty and makes me want to go straight to the beach! I stamped some gorgeous grunge on the sand background, and then added an extra piece of crumb cake card stock with an image from the timeless textures stamp set that I clear embossed, to give a texture of sand.  By tearing the edge of the card and sponging it with crumb cake ink, it adds extra dimension to the page.

By using a 3D box it allowed me to add some extra shells (I found a bottle of various shells in spotlight) which I glued using tombow, directly to the frame itself. I added a couple of pearls and a sprinkle of our gold glitter to the rest of the scene and it was completed!

I love the look and now have a pretty piece that inspires me at home!

What do you think?

Mel xx

PS – For this post, I have included the instructions on making the card for you 🙂
