Christmas Notelet Holder

Todays project is cased from  a fellow demo in New Zealand you can find her set at yellowbear stamping i love notelet holders and had to have ago so here is my take on it hope you like it Paula.

you will need a full sheet of DSP to make the notelet folder.

  1. Score your DSP at 1 7/8″, 5 3/4″, 6 1/4″.Turn 90˙ and score at 2 1/2″ and 8 1/4″.
  2. Fold and burnish  score lines.
  3. Fold each corner in at 1 7/8″ line to form a triangle see template at the bottom of the post.
  4. Refold the 1 7/8″ and 10 1/8″ inwards
  5. Turn the DSP over and horizontal score lines towards the centre.
  6. Tuck the bottom panel under the top flap and burnish.
  7. Fold the centre   to make your case.
  8. The notelets are 7″ x 5″ scored at 3 1/2″

All Hearts Come Home

This was one of my Favorite stamp set from Stampin Up! last Christmas, I was so pleased when it made it in to the annual catalogue this year.

I was digging around in my store cuboard and found some MDF hearts and as soon as i saw them I new i had to make this.

The MDF heart is 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ aprox

I cut down a peice if Night of navy card stock down to 5″ x 5″ for the background layer.

I then but a thin lay of PVA glue all over the frount of the heart and layed the card stock over the top and then i used a nail file to rub away the extra card stock to give me a nice finish to the heart.

Next i cut out the house with the Hometown Greeting edgelits set,i then layed the church on the heart to see where i wanted the moon and stars to go ,i then stamped them in versmark and added embossing podwer. Before sticking my village down with foam pads i added the sentiment stamp and add glitter to the tops of the houses.
