Our Adventures Journal with Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper Created by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! 2020 Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

OUR ADVENTURES JOURNAL!  This journal really makes the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper shine!  The Designer Series Paper pack really does a fabulous job tying all four of my creations together!  The color palette is one of my favorites.  

The Trimming the Town Suite does not include sentiments, but you have an extremely large selection of Stampin’ Up! sets that pair perfectly.  I used the Playful Alphabet Dies along with the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set to bring this journal to life. 

 

Step by Step Tutorial Button

Wrap the binding of a composition notebook with a 2 1/2 x 10 piece of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper, adhering with Tear & Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Adhere two 7 x 10 pieces of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper to the front and back cover with Tear & Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Trim the corners to match the curve of the notebook using Paper Snips. 

Cover the seams with Misty Moonlight 1/4″ Twill Ribbon, adhering in place with Tear & Tape Adhesive. 

Adhere Poppy Parade Cardstock to Foam Adhesive Sheets.  Zip through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop the Playful Alphabet letters.  Remove the protective backing and adhere to the notebook as shown. 

Stamp the sentiment (Peaceful Moments) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, tap to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool. 

Adhere to a Foam Adhesive Sheet.  Zip through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop with the largest Stitched So Sweetly Die.   Remove the protective backing and adhere to the notebook as shown. 

Use Paper Snips to cut two large and three small pine trees from the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper.  Adhere to a Foam Adhesive Sheet, then crop with the coordinating Home Together Dies. Remove the protective backing and adhere to the notebook as shown. 

Embellish with All the Trimmings Embellishments.

It’s not just for the holidays!  The Trimming the Town Suite also works well for a “Congratulations on a New House” card.  I used the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, which has so many options for tiny sentiments! 

Step by Step Tutorial Button

Begin by using a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4.

Adhere a 5 x 2 piece of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp the “congratulations” sentiment as shown with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a 4 1/8 x 3 piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

Adhere to a 4 1/8 x 3 piece of Misty Moonlight and to the card as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Stamp all images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White THICK Cardstock.  Color with Stampin’ Blends: Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Seaside Spray,  and a Color Lifter.

Crop with the coordinating Home Together Dies.

Adhere together and to the card as shown with Stampin’ Seal and Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Warm Wishes From Our House to Yours Slimline Card & Coordinating Envelope by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot!

SLIMLINE SPLENDOR!  I love slimline cards, they are so fun to make especially when creating a scene. I immediately imagined a slimline card when I saw the dies that came in the Home Together Set!  Have you tried a slimline card yet?  Sometimes they can be a challenge as there is a lot of canvas to cover….but keep them simple and they are not as hard as they look!

I love to make coordinating envelopes!  I admit that I hate to measure and cut…so I wrapped the Designer Series Paper around my card, made a few scores on where I needed to fold and cut, then assembled it from there.  I will do my best to give good measurements and steps so you can create one too!

Step by Step Tutorial Button

Use a Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 9 1/2 x 8.  Score and fold at 4.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, along with the Magnetic Cutting Plate, to crop a 9 1/2 x 3 3/4 piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock with the Home Together curvy die with trees.  It will need to be done in two-steps to cut all the way across. 

Stamp the images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Thick Cardstock.  Crop with the coordinating Home Together Dies.

Color with Stampin’ Blends: Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate, Pool Party, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Basic Black,  and a Color Lifter.

Adhere to the card as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Stampin’ Seal Adhesive. 

Stamp the sentiment (Poinsettia Petals) in Versamark Ink onto a piece of Basic Black Cardstock.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Tap to remove the excess.  Set with a Heat Tool. Trim to 2 x 5/8.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
