Storing your Framelits

Framelits are some of my favorite new products in the Occasions mini catalog.  There are currently two Collections to choose from: Hearts and Labels.  Each set comes with 6 thin, wafer-like dies.  With this new type of die, you can see where you are placing your design.  Stampin' Up! has also introduced several new stamp sets that coordinate with the new Framelits.  The card above was made using Apothecary Art (125527) and the Labels Collection Framelits (125598). 

When you get your Framelits, they come in a plastic envelope.  I found that I prefer using Stampin' Up!'s clear-mount stamp case to store the Framelits.  While many different Stampin' Up! demonstrators have shown this idea, the inspiration for this project came from Janet Wakeland.

I took two strips of magnet sheet and adhered them to a Stampin' Up! clear storage case.  The strips hold the Framelit dies in place.  I then made the cover in My Digital Studio and added it to the storage case.  On the back of the case, I put the instruction sheet that comes with the Framelits. 

If I were to do this again, I would use thinner strips of the magnet sheet, maybe 3 inches wide instead of the 4 inches I used in the case in the photo.  

The stampin' supplies for this project are:  

Hearts Collection Framelits (125599) $26.95
Labels Collection Framelits (125598) $26.95
Clear-Mount Stamp Cases (119105 for 4) $5.95

Twitterpated Product Suite

One of the things I enjoy the most about Stampin' Up! is how they coordinate their products into suites.  I'd like to share some projects that use the Twitterpated Product Suite.

I loved this card that was on display at Stampin'  Up!'s Leadership Conference.  This card uses the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper (125406), the Adorning Accents Edgelit Die (125595) to make that great scalloped edge and the Apothecary Art stamp set (125527).  

Here is peek at all of the papers in the Twitterpated set.  The paper is 12 x 12 and double-sided.

This card is made with the Elegant Bird Bigz Die (125593), the Twitterpated paper, the Rue Des Fleurs stamp set (125487) and our Basic Pearls (119247). 

For my January stamp clubs, one of our projects was this mini treat bucket.  It uses one of my new favorites, pleated satin ribbon.  Here are all the colors that it comes in.
