I know that i don't normally post a tutorial on a Thursday but i just had to share this idea with you!!! I think it is soooo cool!! As you know i am rather obsessed with the laminate pocket thing at the minute :-) I have had my thinking cap on again and i have came up with a really cool idea. I have made my own die storage pockets!!! How cool is that???
It works the same way as the bookmark pocket i made and the dashboard for the Travelers Notebook!!! So easy to do and all you need is a laminator and some A4 pouches!
I am so pleased with this idea, you will never need to buy pockets for your dies again!! Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions.
Make your own die storage pockets!! GENIUS!! - YouTube
Welcome to my blog! When i made my Travellers Notebooks a couple of weeks ago, i said that i would do some more tutorials on accessories for them. So that is what i have for you today.
This dashboard is made in the same way that i did the Bookmark sleeve. It is so simple to do and such a fantastic idea!! I came across a few of these tutorials on Youtube. All you need is some A4 Laminating pouches and a Laminator!
The great thing is taht you can change the DSP when you like and also add photos or stickers etc. The list is endless really. I hope you like the idea and will give it a try. My mind is ticking away with other ideas i can come up with. I have a couple in my head already :-)

I decided to remake a sweet little box that i did in the very early days of my Stampin Up! journey. I love this little box and it really is so simple to make.

#2 Remake It Monday-Unusual Treat Box Using Foil Frenzy - YouTube
Welcome to my Blog & project number 4 of my Sale-A-Bration Sunday series. Today i have such a cool & novel card for you, i think you will love it!! Its called a pop stand card. It can be posted and sent totally flat! When the person takes it out of the envelope it pops up! So cool.
I have used some gorgeous new SAB items today which you can get for FREE with either a £45 or £90 spend. The products are truly some of my favoutites from the SAB catalogue. I used the Blooming basket bundle which consists of a stamp set & an embossing folder. The paper i used is the beautiful Springtime Foils.
Springtime Foils DSP, FREE with a £45 spend
Blossoming Basket Bundle, FREE with a £90 spend.
This pop card is very simple to make & apart from card & DSP, all you will need is a small elastic band. This is to create the pop up mechanism.
DSP FOR THE CARD 8 1/2" X 7" SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 4 1/4" SCORE THE SHORT SIDE @ 3/4" ON BOTH ENDS NOTCH THE LONG SIDE @ 3 1/2" TOP & BOTTOM ON BOTH ENDS NOTCH THE LONG SIDE @ 1/2" TOP & BOTTOM EMBOSSED PIECE 5 1/4" X 4" NOTCH THE LONG SIDE @ 2 5/8" W/WHITE BACK PANEL 5 1/4" X 4" NOTCH THE MIDDLE : 2 5/8"

I will be back tomorrow with #2 of Remake it Monday.
I am very sorry this Blog post is late. I have been very busy decorating and also had lots going on at home. However, i did put the Youtube tutorial up on Friday evening.
I was soooooo excited to bring you this tutorial as i think its so cool!! All you need is some regular Laminating pouches, a Laminator & some card/DSP. I am so happy with the way it turned out and when you try it you will be to.
I like making my own Bookmarks as they make great gifts and look so much better than shop bought ones, especially if you use Stampin Up! DSP :-) I used some of the gorgeous new DSP called Springtime Foils. OMG!!! it is beautiful. It is so thick, in fact the stampin blends did not even bleed through!!.
I know the Bookmark sleeves i bought a while back are not available to everyone. That is why i wanted to do this tutorial so everyone can make there Bookmarks look professional and keep them protected!
You can make yours any size you like but i cut my card to 2 3/8" x 7 1/4" I cut the pouches to 2 1/2" x 7 3/8"
You have to try this as its so cool. I love it and my little brain is working overtime thinking about what else i can do with this technique!!
As always i have listed the products i used to make this project and also the link to my YouTube tutorial!!.
I would also like to take the time to thank all of my amazing customers and followers for all your support and love!! I really can not imagine my life without you all and Stampin Up!. I love what i do and i am pretty sure you can all tell :-) Here is to many, many more years of Positively Papercraft :-)
Today i wanted to share with you this beautiful card i have made. Also to tell you that we have some NEW Sale-A-Bration items coming out for you!! They will be available for you to order from the 16th February. I do not want to give everything away now but i have used 2 of the new products on this gorgeous card. The Basket Weave embossing folder and the stunning Springtime foils DSP. OMG! wait until you see this DSP!! I am totally in love with it. The flower i used on the front of my card is cut out from the new DSP and coloured in with the Stampin Blends.
I love the embossing folder and i no you will to. I will be going over the items in my Sunday tutorial and we will also be using them and something else!!
I used Whisper white for my card base and Blushing bride for my embossed piece. The markers i used to colour my flower in were Old olive and Pink Pirouette.
I hope you like it and please pop by on Friday for another project!!
Thank you for visiting my Blog Today! Firstly, i want to tell you about some amazing news i had yesterday. I have been awarded one of the top 50 craft blogs in the UK!!! I can not believe it!

So as well as having one of the top 100 craft channels in the world! I now have one of the top 50 craft blogs in the UK! Totally amazing.
Ok so today i have one of the cutest projects ever! This adorable little matchbox holds a box of TicTacs but also has the most cutest little pop-up. It really is so easy to make and you only need a tiny bit of card stock. I love it, its so cute and novel and would make a great kids party favour.
One of my lovely team members Chrissy sent me a little video the other day of a cute little pop-up matchbox she had made. There were no sweets in just a little pop-up dog picture. I loved it and asked if i could try one. Then i came up with the idea of putting TicTacs in mine. It is so cute.
I made my matchbox to hold the Tictacs and it fits perfectly! I hope you like it to. I have listed all the products i used at the end of this post as well as the link to my YouTube tutorial.
DIMENSIONS CARD FOR THE BASE MEASURES 3 1/8" X 4 1/8" SCORE ALL 4 SIDES @ 3/4" CARD FOR THE LID MEASURES 2 11/16" X 5 5/8" SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 3/4", 2 7/16", 3 3/16" & 4 7/8" DSP X 2 2 1/2" X 1 1/2" 2 X 2 1/2" X 2 5/8" 2 X 1 1/2" X 5/8" ACETATE PIECE 1/2" X 1 1/2"

Welcome to my Blog! I am so excited to be bringing you this new series & this also means that i will be doing 4 tutorials a week on Youtube!! I am really looking forward to making some of my 'old' projects as it will be great to see them in current products.
As i explained yesterday, there is a few projects that did not get transfered to my new blog and i get lots and lots of messages from people asking if they can have written instructions etc. I really hope this helps a lot of you out and also new subscribers have not seen some of my old tutorials.
I decided to start with the most requested project! This is a lovely fun fold card that i made last year. I was having a clear out the other day & i found the original card i had made. To be honest i really thought i no longer had them so i was really pleased i did!
I am so thrilled with the way this card turned out & i much prefer it to the original one. I love the colours & the DSP, it looks so elegant. The silver heat embossing gives it that extra special touch i think.
DIMENSIONS CARD BASE MEASURES 10 X 5" SCORED IN THE MIDDLE @ 5" TOP FLAP MEASURES 5 X 5" SCORED @ 3" EMBOSSED PIECE MEASURES 4 1/2" X 4 1/2" WHISPER WHITE INSIDE PIECE MEASURES 5" X 9 7/8" SCORED @ 5" ON THE LONG SIDE INSIDE DSP PANEL MEASURES 4 3/4" X 4 3/4" TOP OUTSIDE DSP PANEL MEASURES 4 3/4" X 2 3/4" VELLUM ENVELOPE MEASURES 8 1/8" X 8 1/8" PUNCH & SCORE @ 4 1/8" USING THE ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD.

I really hope you have enjoyed the first in my new series & i am looking forward to sharing another remake project with you next Monday!
