Everyday Enchantment

Sale-A-Bration* comes but once a year …… I however am still enjoying using the Everyday Enchantment DSP, ribbon and brads and the Elementary Elegance stamp set.

The colours in the Everyday Enchantment DSP are from our current In-Colour range and are simply gorgeous.  Very versatile for either cards or scrapbook pages.  Here are a couple of 8 x 8  pages showcasing Elementary Elegance DSP. The inspiration for the pages came from Shelli Gardner (Founder & CEO of Stampin’ Up!) www.soshelli.com with a few changes here and there.

I have also used Everyday Enchantment DSP to decorate a journal.  This literally took a few minutes to do.  Inspiration for the journal came from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.  I chose to simplify the design and use it as a demo at my Sale-A-Bration workshop.  My workshop guest were quite suprised to see how quickly this came together and how effective the finished product was.

More than Cards and Scrapbook Pages

Stampin’ Up! products are so versatile and while the coordinating product makes beautiful cards and scrapbook pages, if you let your imagination go, the possibilities are endless.

Using a canvas, ink, a brayer, ribbon, brads and a staple gun I created a hair accessory organiser for our daughter.  The only items that were not from Stampin’ Up! were the canvas, staples and pink hinged ring (to hold the hair ties).

Using an 8 x 8 Canvas and my Pink Pirrouette Inkpad and Brayer I covered the canvas in ink to achieve a subtle almost white washed effect.  I then used So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo and Ice Cream Parlour ribbons’ to achieve the top and bottom borders.  Securing each piece of ribbon to the back of the canvas with staples.  To hold the hairclips in place I have used Melon Mambo Polka Dot and Icecream Parlour Ribbons secured top and bottom with Rhinestone Brads.  To hold the hair ties I have used Certainly Celery Ribbon, looped through a pink hinged ring (so that it open to slip the hair ties on) and secured at the top with a Rhinestone Brad.

Little Miss 3 thinks it is lovely and we no longer loose as many hairclips as we once did.
