Vanilla Lace Trim – How I love vintage

Vanilla Lace Trim – How I love your Vintage look

 

 

 

 

 

Very Vanilla Lace Trim is on page 179 of the Catalogue and is $12.25AUD/$15NZD with product no 141672. On the roll there is 4.6 metres and the  lace is 1/2″ or 1.3cm wide

It would look lovely on the vintage quilt that I am working on. Can you imagine what you could do with it? I would love to see what you make with it.

 

 

 

Very Vanilla lace trim is cute and sweet. While it isn’t handmade bobbin lace (another one of my craft delights),

It deserves a place in the Top 10 Must haves.

I just love the Vintage style and this lace fits my love! I picture many vintage projects and gifts with this.

Lace is an easy way to add style to your projects. Tie it, loop it, wrap it, cut it. Stampin’ Up has the styles you love in the colors you want.

Small But Mighty – The Adhesive Eraser To The Rescue!

Those that know me well know this is one of my favorite Stamping products and would be on my list for the top 10 Must haves. While it is not a new addition to the Stampin’ Up! range it is an essential item for your craft stash.

This easily overlooked tool is inexpensive and unassuming, but if you haven’t worked with Stampin’ Up!’s adhesive eraser, the Adhesive Remover on page 181, you are missing out!

This little square of………..nothing……..easily and quickly removes most stray adhesives with a few quick little dabs or rubs without damaging your project! It quickly “erases” the adhesive leaving behind nothing but fresh smooth card stock, designer series paper and most other paper-based materials. I can’t craft without it because I never know when I might change my mind, go a little crazy with my SNAIL or get some Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive somewhere I don’t want it.

TIP: ALWAYS let the Multipurpose Liquid Glue dry completely before using the adhesive eraser!

NOTE: This tool does not work well on Glue Dots or the adhesive in the Fine Tip Glue Pen. To remove Glue Dots, gently roll them into as small a ball as you can and again gently lift them straight up off the paper. The adhesive in the Fine Tip Glue Pen can be wiped away when wet but know that it WILL leave a clear coating on the surface of the paper.

At less than $7 this little workhorse of a tool costs less than cents per use, takes decades to run out and can be “cleaned” simply by pulling off the balled up adhesive or using an craft knife, trimming just the sticky parts. Don’t spend extra time trying to cover a mistake – grab the Adhesive Remover adhesive eraser and whisk those projects clean!

Top 10 Must Haves from New Catalogue – No 1

With the start of a new catalogue I thought that I should give you a run down of the top 10 must haves from the new catalogue.

 

In no particular order and I cant choose favorites. Let me show you the top 10 Must have products that are going to be living in my craft room.

 

Top 10 Must Haves - Tin of Cards 2016

TIN OF CARDS

Located on page 160 of the new catalogue at a price of $47AUD/$57 NZD – Product Number 141651.

My plan with this kit is to get the co-ordinating Designer Tin of Cards Stamp set (Sold separately) and spend an afternoon putting the 16 cards together.

You get 4 cards and 4 different designs.

The stamp set is cute on its own, which will allow you to make many different cards with a variety of greetings. You can use it with other projects as it has multiple words that are appropriate for many projects. It can be found on page 161 at a price of $45AUD/$55 NZD – Product Number 141739

You can break the rules and not follow the instructions. Change the designs to anything you wish and alter the greetings or change the stickers.

Envelopes are included – make sure that you stamp something onto those. This is reason alone to add it to your Top 10 Must Haves

The tin itself is super cute. It has little dividers in it, which will allow you to sort your greeting cards.

I am thinking I will take this to the office and sell the cards. The cute tin wont look out of place or messy!

This is an easy project for beginners and is a great workshop idea. If you wanted to get some friends over – you buy the kits and I will bring the stamp set!

As this suits beginners and experts alike I think its a well deserved item to kick off the Stamp A Memory Top 10 Must Haves List!
