MDS Monday - Stampin' Up! European Convention 2014

Oh My!  What a wonderful weekend I have had in Brussels with my Stampin' Up! Team of Stampin' Super Stars and hundreds of our favourite Stampin' Up! Friends!  We had and amazing time at the Stampin' Up! Convention, we laughed until it hurt, then we laughed some more, we learned loads that I can't wait to share with you all and Stampin' Up! spoiled us with crafting treats as well as the sweet kinds.  Brussles was amazing too and provided us with some stunning weather to enjoy it all in.

As you can imagine I took hundred of photos too, but even before I have edited them I wanted to start scrapping the whole event - so many precious memories I don't want to loose, so it was a case of MDS to the rescue! Here are two cards I have made to go into a Project Life By Stampin' Up! Page - I think there will be lots of those to come about this wonderful weekend.

Flowers in the Window with Pictogram Punches from Stampin' Up! UK

Sometimes inspiration literally comes from the things you see around you and the card I am sharing today started when I noticed a pretty vase of flower in the window of one of the houses I can see from my craft room window.

I love the vase and flowers in the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set so decided to use those.  I love that there is a matching punch for the flower! The pretty blind was made from some Color Me Autumn Paper.

Scrapbook Saturday - Color Me Autumn Flowers Page

Today I have a start point page for you featuring the lovely Color Me Autumn Papers.  This page would make a lovely base for pictures of autumn flowers and other autumnal scenes but would also work well for a  number of other occasions.

Find Out About Friday - How to make a Desk Tidy for for Project Life Cards

I love the 3x4 inch Project Life Grid Cards and find that I use them for just about everything from writing notes I want to keep, lists of ideas, complement slips, messages inside cards or parcels to jotting down phone messages and contact details.  I have some in my handbag and a pack on my desk.

There was however one problem with having them on my desk - keeping the pile of them together!  So I decided to make myself a desk tidy for them and today I thought I would show it to you and share the instructions on how I made it.

Here is the holder all decorated and ready to sit on my desk.
How to make a Desk Tidy for for Project Life Cards - Free Tutorial Here
If you would like to make your own this is what you need to do.  Start with a piece of card stock measuring 5 1/4 inches by 9 inches.  

Score 1 inch in from each of the long sides and at 4 and 5 inches across the card, your score marks should look like this.

Next cut where the red marks are on this diagram.

Then use a die or a punch to cut an opening on one end ensuring that your cut stay inside the outer score lines.  I have used one of the dies from the Apothecary Accents Framelits from Stampin' Up!

Next add a piece of card measuring 3 1/4 by 4 inches to the end of the card you have not cut your opening into.  Make sure it sits just inside your score lines.  This will ensure your box is nice and strong and does not wobble too much when you use it.  Now fold up your box and stick it together.

  You can decorate it as much as you like.  I have used Blackberry Bliss Card, papers from the Moonlight Paper Stack and some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Of course mine is decorated with Butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the Elegant Butterfly Punch.  I also made some dividers by putting some card over three of the cards.

Your desk tidy is ready to use just pop in your Grid Cards.

Enjoy using your Desk Tidy
