I was playing around with my Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch Board and made this adorable basket. I got the idea from a very talented demonstrator from the UK... Pootles. She has some amazing ideas on her blog.

Stampers do not like to throw anything away... especially not their scraps. I keep all my DSP scraps (Designer Series Paper)... they are just too pretty to throw away. But what do you do with all those small scraps? So I came up with the theme "Stamping with Scraps". Below is a sample which shows a great way to use your scraps and create a beautiful card! I used various circle punches for this card, but it would also look great with squares!!

Reminder: from a previous post....
I like to store my scraps in 9x12 Clear Velcro Envelopes. I keep an envelope with each paper series pack. So I have the pack of DSP in the paper slot and on top of the pack is one of these clear envelopes and all the scraps for that particular DSP pack are in that envelope. Keeps everyone organized and together.

Today I am sharing the projects from my monthly stamping class. The main these was Father's Day... trying to stay ahead of the game.
DSP Gift Bag: Made these adorable gift bags with Stampin' Up! DSP (Designer Series Paper). using dark colored DSP makes them perfect for the "masculine" look.
Dimensions: 12 x 6 sheet of DSP, score at 4, 5 1/2, 9 1/2 and 11.
Monthly Coaster Calendar: July & August
Father's Day Hershey Bar: Made this using a regular sized envelope
Step 1: Seal the envelope, cut off one end... cut only a small piece, just enough to create the pocket.
Step 2: On the opening you just made, make a slit in the front.. aim towards the middle and cut about 1" down
Step 3: Fold down on each side to create flaps.. your shirt collar
Step 4: Decorate your shirt collar with DSP paper
Step 5: Cut out a tie using DSP paper. When I cut the pattern out of DSP, I cut top part and the bottom part of the tie in different directions to make it look like a tie knot. See the samples... the top of the tie and the bottom and you will notice the patterns don't line up. I sponged the edges to give it depth.
Step 6: I put dimensionsals under the color and added a greeting.... and of course the Hershey Bar.
Giveaway: Gave one to all the girls who came to class. I made these using the new Stampin' Up! Banner Framelits. Good for a Hershey Nuggets or any small candy.
These cards were previously posted, but they were part of my class projects.
