Travel Memories Tag Wallet

It's that time of year again - Travel Time!  And just in time...Stampin' Up! has a line of travel products in their Summer Mini Catalog.  Today, I'm sharing a cute little photo wallet to share your Travel Memories, showcasing Stampin' Up! Travel Journal Designer Series Paper.

This little Tag Wallet only measures 3" x 4-1/4".  But open it up and WOW... it will hold up to 12-13 pictures!

Tag-Wallet-Cover

NOTE:  This project uses a couple of punches that will be retiring.  The Tag Corner punch (used on the front and inside flaps, as well as the inside tags).  The arrows are created with the My Way punch.  I'm gonna miss these punches!  As of 6/19 - they are still available for purchase.

Dawns Stamping Tips
1.  For the arrow (My Way punch) - I punched the largest arrow out of both Pumpkin Pie and lightweight chipboard.  Adhered the two together and then attached it to the wallet with a brad.  It swings back and forth to open the wallet.

2.  Lookie here...the word "travel" was stamped using the new set "Rough Type Alphabet" (from the Summer Mini Catalog).  I lined them on a clear block and stamped it all together.  LOVE IT!!  Huge time saver!

3.  When placing the letters on your clear block, start right to left.

Watercolor Trio Flap Card with Scallop Square Die

I received a great Watercolor Trio swap card from Natalie Swartout last month at our Bi-Annual MN Leader Stamp & Share event.  Our theme was the Summer Mini Catalog.  I loved her card layout/design and even her color combo.  BUT, I had to use up some of the Dusty Durango cardstock I had on hand.  So I changed the color combo and here is what I came up with. 

This was one of the cards we did at my Summer Mini Stamp-a-Stack last month.  See supply list below.

Grads & Dads: Go Graduate

Today is the last day of  Grads & Dads week.  I'm sharing a shoebox swap card that I made that was designed by Ann Hennen.  Actually - I wasn't in her swap group, but she had one packet left and I SO loved her card, she let me make it!  Thank you Ann!!

AnnHennen

Shoebox Swap card designed by Ann Hennen.  Love the way she stamped the words from Go Graduate and "overstamped" the star image from the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set (both from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog).

Grads & Dads: Motorcycle and Bargello Technique

Stampin' Up! shared an awesome paper technique in our demonstrator magazine (Stampin' Success) last month.  I make it a point to take at least one creative or business idea from each magazine and incorporate it into my business.  Love that Stampin' Up! provides TONS of ideas/tips for us demonstrators in running our businesses!

The technique was called Bargello.  Which is an embroidery technique that uses long stitches to create patterns.  But of course, we use paper to replicate the technique.  I was instantly drawn to the technique and had a TON of fun playing with it.  We did it at my Technique Tuesday class this month and everyone loved it!

Flag-Motorcycle2

You need striped paper for this technique - which is always one of my favorite patterns anyways.  So dig out your scraps and watch the BARGELLO video below for 3-4 different ways you can use your striped Designer Series Paper for some amazingly fun and cool looking patterns.

If you are unable to watch in your email subscription, then click on Paper Bargello Technique to watch on YouTube.  (I was having a little bit of trouble doing this video, so be kind - thanks!)
