Layering Alphabet Friends Mini Photo Album

Hi Stampers. I’m mixing old and new for this adorable little photo book. The Lined Alphabet stamp set and coordinating Layering Alphabet dies are carrying over. This beautiful Bird Ballad designer series paper will debut in our new annual catalog. I combined the two for today’s project.

I cut each page for the book (measurements below) using the Layering Alphabet dies. Then stamped the letters from the Lined Alphabet stamp set in memento black ink. Since the stamps are photopolymer the are clear so you can see where you are stamping.

For the pages I used the following colors of cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow and Smokey Slate. These colors are listed as being used in the Bird Ballad DSP, so that made it easy! I started with the back page and reduced each page by 5/8″.  The measurements are:

  • 4-1/4′ x 6-5/8″ – F
  • 4-1/4″ x 7-1/4″ – R
  • 4-1/4″ x 7-7/8″ – I
  • 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ – E
  • 4-1/4″ x 9-1/8″ – N
  • 4-1/4″ x 9-3/4″ – D
  • 4-1/4″ x 10-3/8″ – S
  • 4-1/4″ x 11″ – back

This book is decorated using the new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper,  For the front cover I used a piece 4″ x 5-1/4″ and for the back page a piece 4″ x 10-3/4″. I used my Zutter Bind-it-all to punch the ends and add the coil. (It could use a smaller coil, this was the only size I had on hand.)

Happy Tails & Nine Lives “Pet Vet” Framed Sampler

Hi Stampers. Do you have a pet?  Chances are if you have a pet – you have a vet.  How cute would this be in a veterinary office? This framed sampler is made using the Large Letter Dies, Happy Tails stamp set and Nine Lives stamp set. I saw this quite some time ago (somewhere online), I believe the idea came from fellow demonstrator Dori Schneider. I have changed it up some and made it my own.  I plan to gift it to my Vet next time I take Sophie (my doggie) in for her shots.

Sophie is my constant companion in my craft studio. When I have classes, she is SURE that everyone is there to see her!!  She’s a love bug and everyone loves her back.  She makes me happy!  How could you not love that face??

It started with an 8″ x 8″ frame and an 8″ x 8″ piece of basic black CS.  I divided the 8″ by 3 and made miniature squares in Basic Gray CS to place over the base making my grid. (I had to be sure to allow for the spaces between the squares).  I then made a slightly smaller square in Whisper Whit CS.

I cut the letters from Basic Black CS using the Large Letter Framelit Dies. I am so sad they are retiring.  If you don’t have them yet, you need to hurry over to my store and buy them.  They are awesome and I use them for LOTS of things! I decorated around the letters and in the remaining squares using the Happy Tails bundle and the Nine Lives bundles.  Both stamp sets are photopolymer stamps with layers (the cat and dog have various stamps for stripes and spots) and have a coordinating punch, making it super easy. These two stamps sets will be carrying over, as well as the punches.  You can save 10% by buying the Happy Tails bundle from my store now. In the new catalog they will only be sold separately.

Tombow Liquid Glue Holder

Hi Stampers.  Do you love Tombow liquid glue but not not that it gets harder to use as the bottle gets closer to empty?  This small holder works great for keeping the bottles upright so the glue stays at the small end of the tube!  It’s easy to make one.  I give some written directions in this post, but I encourage you to watch my video below to see me make it.

Stampin' Up! Tombow Liquid Glue Holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I started with a 8-1/2″ x 7-3/4″ piece of Blackberry Bliss CS. On the long size I scored at 1/2″, 2-1/2″, 4-1/2″ and 6-1/2″.  The short side was scored at 1-1/2″ and 6-1/4″.  I then used my paper snips to cut in from the sides along the score line, up to the crossing score line to create the flaps and cut off the small 1/2″ parts and wedged the flaps (see video). Be sure to burnish all the score lines with a bone folder. Before assembling the box, I used the smallest scalloped circle from the Layering Circles Dies to cut 3 circles (over the top of the circles that were placed on my CS – see tip below).

Stampin’ Tip: I used the one inch circle punch to cut 3 circles from scraps of CS and placed them on the CS where I want the holes to be cut and attached them with a bit of snail adhesive. This allows me to place them evenly and be sure the holes will be in the right spots before cutting them. 

Stampin' Up! Tombow Liquid Glue Holder by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

You can choose to round the corners with the detailed trio punch before assembling the box.  I used tear and tape adhesive to connect the long side of the box and Tombow liquid glue to secure the end flaps. To pretty it up, I used some Designer Series Paper 4-5/8″ x 1-7/8″ on the front of the box. I hope this project helps solve a frustration in your craft room – remember crafting is supposed to be STRESS FREE!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  Please take a moment to leave me a comment below.  I love to hear from you!

If you are not already working with a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would appreciate the chance to show you how to create beautiful and fun project STRESS FREE!

I make the glue holder 17 minutes into this video:

April 2019 OnStage Gifts & Team T-Shirts

Hi Stampers. I can’t even begin to explain how exciting it is to attend a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Event. I’ve been attending them for years, but this was the first year that I had someone from my team join me in attending an event. For #OnStage2019, we traveled to Salt Lake City, UT. I was so excited that I may have gone a bit overboard.  But, we had an AMAZING time!  I can’t wait for the next event – in LAS VEGAS, NV on November 19th of this year.  I’m hoping to have more team members join me in attending that event.  I’m all ready to create more team t-shirts and pillow gifts!

Valentine’s Day Boozy Box

Hi Stampers.  Today I have a fun “Boozy Box” that was designed by fellow demo Erica Cerwin.  She shared how to do this last October using the Alpine Adventure bundle and the Festive Farmhouse plaid DSP.  I chose to change up her winter ski lodge style to a more Valentine’s Day theme.  I am thrilled with how it came out and gave away several of these as gifts.  The people I gave them to loved them!

Stampin' Up! Valentines Hot Chocolate Boozy Box By Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the base of this box, I used a piece of Blushing Bride CS 7-3/4″ x 11″. On the long side, I scored this at 1/2″, 2-1/4″, 4-1/4″ and 6″.   The short side was scored at 1-3/4″ and 6″. I used the Simply Scored score board because I felt that it gave me the most accurate measurements.  It can be done with the Stampin’ Trimmer, but you need to be careful on placement.

Next, I punched out a 1-3/8″ circle and two 1″ circles from scrap paper. I used these circles to figure out placement for the holes to hold the test tubes and the bottle. I attached them where I wanted them with a tad of snail adhesive and then punched over them. This is where the Hot Chocolate Mix, tiny Marshmallows and Baileys Irish Cream sample will be inserted.  (I purchased the test tubes at our local craft store in the jewelry bead department).

Next, I decorated the box. For the back, I cut a piece of Whisper White CS 4-1/8″ x 3″ and a piece of Tropical Escape DSP 4″ x 2-7/8″.  Then for the bottom front, I cut a piece of Whisper White CS 4-1/8″ x 1-7/8″ and a piece of Tropical Escape DSP 4″ x 1-3/4″.  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon around the bottom of the box and tied a bow on the right side of the front.

Stampin' Up! Valentines Hot Chocolate Boozy Box By Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For the sentiments, I used the Forever Lovely stamp set.  The “Happy Valentines Day” is stamped on a strip of Whisper White CS using Blushing Bride ink.  That is layered on top of a strip of DSP and a strip of Blushing Bride CS.  All three layers were flagged on the end using the Banner Triple Punch.  The “Love You” is stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and die cut out using the Layering Circles Dies. I also used the Layering Circles Dies to die cut the scalloped circle in Blushing Bride CS.  The white circle is adhered to the pink circle using a Stampin’ Dimensional. Glue dots were used to adhere both sentiment to the front of the box.  Just too cute!
