Stampin' Up projects

Last week I went to a Stampin' Up! workshop hosted by Jill Olsen (SU Demonstrator).  These are the projects we made.  They were all pretty easy, and super cute!  The thing I love most about doing workshops is learning new techniques and ways to do things, plus Jill is just so creative and awesome I always leave with some creative inspirations.You can see Jill's projects and learn more from her website: www.stampingjill.com

Here's a close-up of the things we made:

Using the glitter paper from Stampin' Up! we made the bow- it was pretty easy.  Cut 2 oval shapes with an oval punch. (folded in half that's the bow part) then take a strip of the glitter paper and insert one end through the inside going out of the oval punch so it will clip off the end giving a rounded end on one side and you cut in towards the middle for the other end. (the rounded end is what goes under the bow part and lines up well)

This was a fun one! Using 3 different size circle punches we punched out Green, red, and silver circles.  Then glue them to the white paper.  Once they are all glued on we ran the whole thing through the Big Shot (a cutting and texturing tool available through Stampin' Up!).  It gave the whole paper a fun zigzag texture and made it look like the circles were embedded.
 
 
This was probably my favorite one! So for the patterned background we put some double sided adhesive on white card stock, then attached strips of the patterned paper however we like, then used the Big Shot to cut out the shape.  The "Peace on Earth" tag was also punched out using the Big Shot, then holes punched on the ends to thread the ribbon through.  The background paper was textured through the Big Shot.
 


This Santa gift card holder was made almost entirely using the big shot to cut out and texture.  From there it was just a matter of layering things together right.



This was a cut out for an envelop using the Big Shot, we cut one side a little smaller, then glued 2 of them together to make a little gift box.

This was so simple but so cute! It's just a band to go around a gift box.  Then we added the tree & tag.
