Christmas, Stampin' Up!, Tutorial

Project Make: Chocolate Orange Box from one piece of 12 x 12 Cardstock :)

This by far is my most favourite #ProjectMake using the Santa’s Workshop Suite Products. View my YouTube Tutorial to see how easy this project is to make – I recommend that you have access to a score board and paper trimmer.  I shall apologise in advance for shouting out to my husband to be quiet at 14 minutes in lol lol – I though I had paused it!!!  Anyway all measurements are detailed below – #happycrafting. Love T x

Turn paper once and score at 2, 6 and 9 inches

Round lid flap using corner rounder punch or envelope punch board
Flip paper over so that the lid is now at the top right side of your cardstock
Cut out your DSP panels  2 6/8″ x 3 6/8″ and adhere with pattern right way round
Cut out your DSP panel for lid 2 6/8″ x 2 6/8″ and adhere with pattern upside down
Punch out your Sentiment Layer and Label using the Everyday Label Punch
Choose and apply sticker sentiment to one of your labels – adhere to front of box using dimensionals
Choose and adhere Santa’s Workshop Fussy Cut images to your box front and back using dimensionals
(Now would be a good time to put your chocolate orange in the box 😉 before you close it)
Cut and apply ribbon to secure box – tie in nice bow
Punch small hole to other label and add small piece of ribbon
Tie to bow on top of box
As always, take a picture of your lovely creation and tag me in a photo of it!!

#StampinUp, Stampin' Up!

Santa’s Workshop DSP

As I have a few blog/tutorial ideas up my sleeve based around this suite I have just literally had to order more of the a) Santa’s Workshop Designer Series Paper and b) matching stamp set as stock inventory of these items over at Stampin’Up! HQ are very very low! Once they are gone they are gone gone. I don’t think I could cope with not having a supply of this gorgeous range of items lol lol.

If you want to get your hands on this suite I would recommend you order sooner rather than later…. Remember to use my hostess code (below) when placing orders under £150 XX

Also – remember there is an additional extra special thank you gift being sent to the next three customers who shop direct via my SHOP !! Santa’s suite range of products are listed below.for your convenience too x

Speak soon and happy crafting.

Stampin' Up!

Join my free Monthly Online Host Club

Join me in my Monthly Online Host Club for Free and receive extra goodies at the end of each month

 

Happy Mother's Day!.png

Well followers… I’ve finally figured out what this is all about…… the Online Host Code Club

What is a Host Code Club?

I like to reward my customers for shopping with me.  I send every online order a personal Thank You card to show how much I appreciate you shopping with me. The Online Host Code enables you to get even more rewards from me. If you use the Host Club Code when you order online, then you are in the club! Yep, it’s as simple as that. There are no commitments, and there is no requirement to order every month – you can order when it suits you. I am thee host! 🙂 🙂

20181006_173240

The Host code adds up everyone’s orders each month and the total order earns Stampin’ Rewards.  I want these rewards to go to my loyal customers. The rewards are based on how many orders are placed and the total amount of the order. At the end of the month, I will share these rewards between everyone who has ordered and will send these out to you the middle of the following month.  ie. order in November and you can expect your order from Stampin’ Up! as usual within the week and then around the middle of December, you will receive yet another goody from me! It’s super simple and I cover the cost of shipping the free gift to you along with your Thank You card.

The more customers that use the code = the more rewards for YOU!

How does this work?

Each month, I will publish on my blog,  the code for the month – it’s a new code for anyone shopping in my Online Shop. It is displayed on the right hand side of my blog and also in my customer newsletters. When you have your order ready, you will click through to shop in my Online shop – you will know you are in the correct place because you will see my name TRICIA SMITH in the top right corner of your screen. Once you’ve finished shopping, and before you click through to the checkout page, you will enter the current month’s Host code into the box at the bottom left side of the ‘Shopping Bag’ page and then you can continue to the checkout to pay as normal.

What do I need to do to get started?  Well, you will need to…

  • Go to my Online Shop 
  • Create an account if you don’t have one.
  • Grab a cuppa and start shopping – make sure my name is in the top right hand corner as show below.
  • When you get to the ‘Shopping Bag’ screen, enter the current code in the box as shown below and click ‘apply’.

    Untitled.png

What if my order is £150 or more, should I still enter the code?

  • No! If your order is £150 or more, then you qualify to receive your own Stampin’ Rewards and you can choose your free gift PLUS you will also receive an extra gift from me to say thank you!

Guest Checkouts and Selecting No ContactIf you choose to checkout as a guest or click to choose to receive no contact from me, unfortunately, I cannot include you in the club because your contact details are hidden from me.Anything else?
Nope…. What are you waiting for?  Go grap that cuppa and start browsing!

Feel free to contact me if you need any assistance or anything clarified x0x0x0

Love T x

p.s.  Remember that Hostess Code at Checkout – remember now, don’t forget (wagging finger) 🙂

Happy Mother's Day!.png

 

Christmas, Stampin' Up!, Tutorial

Tartan Reindeer Tree Decoration Tutorial Customer Thank you Gifts Stampin’ Up!

Good Afternoon my lovelies – This gorgeous project make (YouTube tutorial link below) was made last night and scheduled for you guys to enjoy today.  I have made three of these and if you spend a minimum of £25 (not including shipping) in my ONLINE SHOP the first three customers to order will receive this as an additional thank you from me (every customer receives a thank you).  I appreciate every single one of you who order from me as your chosen Demonstrator.

photocollage_20181114223635556.jpg

The main product used within this make is the Santa’s Workshop Suite Card Stock and Designer Series Paper as well as the Stitched All Around Clear Mount Bundle (direct links to products are at the end of this page).

Now, the Stitched All Around bundle is part of the 2018-19 catalogue however, the Santa’s Workshop Suite is not and items won’t be available to purchase after 2nd January 2019 – so if you want these lovely sets… you really should think about buying them just now. They’ve been so popular that supplies are running low.  Feel free to drop me a message if you have any queries smithscraftycreations@gmail.com

So, the measurements for this project are:

Card Base (Use A4 of 12×12 stock)
Cut to 4 3/4″ x 8 1/2″
Score at  1 1/2 ” for top section
Flap Layer 1 1/4″ x 4 1/2″

Embellishment
Layer 1 (Cardstock) – Punch out circle with 2″ Circle Punch
Stampin’ Layer (Cardstock) – Punch out circle with 1 3/4″ Circle Punch

Here is the online tutorial, I hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.  #HappyCrafting

Love Tx

Stampin' Up!, Tutorial

Quick and Easy 8″ x 2″ box from one sheet of 12×12 DSP!

Hi everyone!

Tonight we have an infographic blog rather than an online YouTube tutorial from a project I made a few days ago!   You will find the infographic further down this page.

And here it is – the beautiful box!

2018-11-07 20.27.23.jpg

It is absolutely gorgeous and is inspired thanks to one of Sams at pootles.co.uk blogs back in June 2018.

This box was made from one, yes ONE, piece of DSP and the finished sizes are (L = 8″, H = 2″, B = 3″) – I think I’ve written that correctly? lol.  Anyway – feel free to try this project make and be sure to tag me in any creations you make from this blog 🙂 smithscraftycreations.com.  I have linked all the products used below – feel free to visit my Stampin’ Up! online shop here and select me as your demonstrator before placing your order :).

Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
