Color Renovation

Hey everyone. We have some good news and some bad news!

Here's the news: Stampin Up! is doing a Color Renovation, which means they are getting rid of a bunch of colors, getting a bunch of new colors, and re-naming the color families!

The bad news of course is that they they are getting rid of a bunch of colors. This new change will take effect July 1st, which gives you some time to order all the things you want in any of these colors (until June 30th). This includes inks, ink refills, markers, paper, ribbons, brads, etc.

Here are the colors we are going to have say good bye to:

The good news is that we are going to be getting a bunch of new colors. Some of these colors you will recognize as "In Color" Colors from past catalogs. They are bringing back some of the most popular colors to replace some of the colors we are going to be saying goodbye to! And there are five new colors we have never seen before! This is going to be an exciting change!

Just remember you don't have to buy everything at once, you can take your time and buy the colors that are your favorites first and then work your way down your "fave" list

April * Mini Dresser

This month will be a crazy one!!! :) There will be a lot of cutting, big shotting, and taping.

Sarah and I were trying to come up with all of the different ideas you could use these for:

Office supplies
Candy (but then we figured that wouldn't work because it would always be empty) :)
little girls clippies and rubberbands

I'm sure you can come up with many more!

Sarah tried to tell everyone last month what we will be doing, but just in case you didn't get the info, here it is again:

You are more than welcome to use our paper to make these dressers. But if you want to make a set that matches a specific room in your house you might want to bring your own paper. You are also welcome to use any of our ribbons. The brads will be provided for you!

I will be giving all of the dimensions for the paper that you will need. This project is kind of a long one, so if you want to save some time you can pre-cut the paper to the right size before you come to the class.

Here we go!!!

Step 1:
For the top and bottom of the dresser you will make the same thing for both. So you will need two pieces of paper for the bottom and two pieces of paper for the top. Look at Dresser #1 You will need two of the brown papers and two of the flower papers. Look at Dresser #2 You would have two green papers and two strawberry papers.

The dimensions for these papers are 4 in x 5 in. (four pieces total)

Step 2:
For the six drawers you can either make them all different, all the same, or rotate the colors in different orders. Dresser # 1 has two different colors of drawers: pink and white. Dresser #2 has all the same drawers. The drawers are white with paper glued on to the front of the outside and the bottom of the inside.

The dimensions for the drawers are 6.5 in x 5.5 in. (six pieces total)

The dimensions for the plaid paper in Dresser #2 are 2.5 in x 2 in...and 2 in x 6/8 in. (12 pieces total)

Step 3:
Now we need to go over the little section of the dresser that holds the drawers in. You will make six drawer holders. Dressers #1 and #2 we have used the same color for all of this. You will need either 2 pieces of 12 x 12 paper or 3 pieces of 8.5 x 11 paper.

The dimensions for the drawers are 3 in x 7 in. (six pieces total)

To cover the outside of the dresser so you don't see the individual boxes you will need two rectangular pieces of paper which you will have left over from your 8.5 x 11 or 12 x 12 paper. (so bring your scraps!)
