Just thought I would share with you all the gifts I made up for my ladies that recenlty  finished this round of Stamp Club. First I made them all this lovely box which was about 6 1/2 inches square.
The cardstock I used is now retired. 
Next I filled it was 6x6inch paper sheets of retired Stampin' Up! papers.
All the ladies loved their goodies boxes.

Lastly I decorated a notebook for them all. Most of the ladies have told me that they are using it to write down their Stampin' Up! wish lists in. I used last years Sale-a-bration papers to decorate them.
The rosette was made on my Stampin' Up! Simply Scored tool and I used the Elegant Butterly punch to finish them off.  I really hope all my ladies loved the gifts they received from me.
I will be seeing some of them a Card Class next week so I am sure they will all let me know then.
If you are interested in coming to classes I run both night and day time card class and scrap booking classes in the Newcastle Are. Click here for times and dates.

Welcome to Tuesdays, Tips, Techniques and Tutorial. Today we are lookin at Stampin' Up! Edgelits dies not only create expanded options for cutting the edge of your next project, but pair them with Stampin' Up! coordinating Textured Impressiions Embossing Folders and you have borders for all occasions. This video from the Stampin' Up! home office will show you what they are and how to use them.
A quick tip when using the edgelits. Use post-it notes on either side of the die, using them to stick the edgelit to your card/paper to stop it moving around. After you've cut your card simply remove them.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and tip, its like a double edition today hehehe.
