AWESOME Cardstock/Ribbon Cutting Calculator

I would like to thank Julie (justjulier on SCS) for making up this very cool Dynamic Cutting Tool Excel Spreadsheet Click on the very first post and there is an attachment.

This handy little calculator lets you enter in the size of the layers of your cardstock and it will tell you how many you can fit on one sheet. You can also tell the spreadsheet how many projects you want to make and it will tell you how many sheets of cardstock you need, as well. This is awesome for when you're making a ton of cards or projects!

Thanks Julie!

You put da Lime in da coconut....

I made this card as part of the gift box I am making for Bethany's teachers. I will post the rest of the box and cards a little later. I used SU!'s Tart & Tangy Set that is in the Occasions mini catalog. It is such a fun set especially when it is matched with the Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper!

I want to first start by saying that I saw the layout and even the color combo on another blog (I'm sorry I can't remember the name but if you email me, I will be more than happy to link your blog and give you credit).

For this card on For this card I started with a Whisper White base and topped with a layer of Old Olive. I stamped the wording in WW craft ink and added the silver brads using the paper piercing tool (great for getting the spacing right) for the lime image, I did a OSW (one sheet wonder) because I was also using it as a swap card for my stampers 10 group. I love the clean "refreshing" look to this card. It could be flowers, or it could be limes....hmmmmm.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

InKredible Swap Box Information

I registered for the Stampin' Up! Convention last week and am soooo excited! It is SU! 20th Anniversary and it should be a BLAST! Which leads me into the realization that if I'm going to convention, I am certainly going to need to have something to get all of my swaps there in one piece.

In March at our Stamp Share, this swap box was introduced. We got to try it and look at it up close and personal. Please read more about it HERE

I know I am going to order one!!! It comes with a sleeve to keep it from spilling your swaps all over the place and can hold 300+ swaps.
