The Crazy Crafters July Blog Hop - New 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Catalogue


Hi Everyone

Welcome back for another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! July is the month to celebrate the NEW and wonderful 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. If you have just left Teena Maher at Stamping With Teena then you are in the right spot.  Enjoy the tour around The Crazy Crafters blogs, I hope you find our creations inspirational, fun and you may even learn a thing or two.  

Please leave me a comment below and you will automatically go into my draw to win a sample pack of some NEW papers and In Colour Ribbons. Winner will be drawn 10 pm, Wednesday 16th July 2014.

Enjoy!

I honestly couldn't decide on just one new product from the new catalogue - they're all my favourites! So I have been a bit cheeky and used them all, to create these really cool Hamburger Boxes! But there's a suprise inside! Just before I tell you what it is, I'll share with you what I used to create the box.  
The NEW Hamburger Box Die is sooooooooo cool! Just a few days ago I posted one I made and decorated with the Blended Bloom stamp, I have 2 more posts coming soon that showcase the box again!  These gorgeous boxes feature 2 of the NEW In Colours - Lost Lagoon & Tangelo Twist.  I stamped all over the box with the matching In Colour ink and the NEW Photopolymer Epic Alphabet Stamp Set - the sketchy look is so trendy.   
The main images on the top are from the NEW Stamp Set 'Boys Will Be Boys'. I was instantly drawn to this set and I've made these special boxes for my 2 boys, Gabriel and Marco.  I coloured the Yo-Yo and Lego Bricks with my NEW Blendabilities - Coastal Cabana & Pumpkin Pie. A bit of Silver twine and VOILA!


Inside.......drum roll please... Memory cards! Lay them out face down, turn them over 2 at a time. Can you remember playing this as a child? 
Assembly of the Hamburger Box is made so much easier if you cut along one edge of the corner foldy bits, explained and shown here Box Assembly Technique courtesy of Tanya Bell.

These little cards measure 2x2" each, then I used the 1 3/4" Circle punch to decorate them.

Taa-dah! The other side - stamped with Epic Alphabet Stamp Set. The Yo-Yo set is for my Marco. Bright and colourful just like him really!
The really cool thing about this personalised gift is that it can be educational as well as being a really cool thing to create! I've only used the letters in Marco's name, plus a few shapes that come in the stamp set.  Such a great way to teach my child the letters in his name.
