Cute Camera mini album gift box tutorial using Stampin Up UK Retro Fresh products

My cute camera box would make the perfect keepsake for the forthcoming summer holidays - and before you think that's ages away it's only 9 weeks until Midsummer! (And just 36 weeks until Christmas ;)  


I've used a mixture of Retro Fresh designer series paper over a base of Coastal Cabana cardstock with a hint of Soho Subway paper in for the trims. 

To make the camera base simply cut a slim box size to suit your project needs (my camera box is just about big enough to hold a small mini album for photos & journaling which I'll be sharing another day with you :) 

My box is 6" wide and only 1" in depth and 4" in height and the lid is made from a separate piece of card which measures 1.5" wide and 6 1/4 " wide and sits snugly on top of the camera box.


I've decorated the box using the grid papers from the Soho Subway collection which I've punched both side with the scallop edge punch for interest & detail measuring 1" wide. 

The centre piece is a strip of Retro Fresh measuring 2" wide and has a new wood circle embellishment and calypso coral button as a embellishment.


There's another cute wood embellishment on the top of the box too! I'm really enjoying having the wood embellishments in my Stampin Up stash :) The top lid is also decorated with Retro Fresh Stampin Up paper. 

To finish I've used some leftover Sweet sorbet bakers twine from the now retired Sale-a-bration free products (if you missed out on the freebies this year I'm sure it will return next year!)

Easter chocolate treat box basket tutorial using Stampin Up products

Just a couple of days to go now before Easter and my DIY project today is a collection of Easter treat baskets all containing a delicious selection of chocolate eggs, bunnies & chicks. 

With 4 daughters crafting for Easter has been fun but I've realised today I've only actually made 3 of these baskets so back to the studio I go in time for Easter Sunday! Luckily they're simple and quick to make so why not whizz a few up for yourself!



To make, simply cut a square from cardstock measuring 18cms x 18cms then score at 6cms & 12cms on both sides. Remove the outer four corners all bar a 1cm strip beside the score line - these will become your tabs to enable you to glue the sides of the basket together. 

Once complete you be have left yourself a cross shape which can be folded up on all sides to make the basket (it'll resemble a little like a open box!) 

Cut a strip measuring 20cms x 1cms and bend over to make a handle. 

To decorate, I've used some Stampin Up blushing bride stitched grosgrain ribbon, my favourite Eggstra Spectacular stamp set and my of my all time put to good use punches - the Stampin Up boho blossoms punch :)




Just one more Easter theme project to go but in the meantime from all of us at Vintage Celebrations Towers, we hope you have a great Easter weekend!

Stampin Up Easter chocolate exploding gift box tutorial

Today's Easter theme project is one of my favourite easiest papercraft gift projects - an exploding box. 

I've filled today's exploding box with Easter chocolate treats and decorated with stamped images from Stampin Up's Easter theme stamp set Eggstra Spectacular which is the perfect set for Easter crafting.


For details on how to make the exploding box check out one of my previous exploding box projects here. The Easter box was crafted in Stampin Up calypso coral cardstock and decorated with Crisp Cantaloupe in colour designer series paper with added glamour panels of the gorgeous gold foil cardstock.


The chocolate treats all nestle inside waiting for the box to be opened to spring out!

Tips & Techniques - 5 Stampin Up Write Marker pen tips & techniques

Stampin Write marker pens are an inexpensive way to massively expand the ink colours and shades you have available to use in your cardmaking, scrapbooking, journalling and papercrafting projects - and here are 5 tips & techniques to make the most of your markers!




To conclude - the tips are:


  1. Breathing - "huff" on your stamps after you color them to moisten the ink right before you stamp
  2. Tapping - after coloring your image, just tap the image with another marker, and you get a cool two-toned effect!
  3. Markering your stamps - if you color outside the lines, you can always remove any unwanted ink easily with a Blender pen.
  4. Spritzing - you can do this when using an ink pad too. After you are finished markering the image, just give it a spritz with water and it changes the way the stamped image looks. It gives it a softer, water-colored look :)
  5. Watercolour technique - cover your acrylic blocks with layers of different ink marker colours - spritz with water for a fabulous ombre effect like this!

3D Stampin Up Easter Bunny treat box

This gorgeous little Easter bunny gift box was CASE'd from a fellow SU demo Tami White with a few alterations. 


I used the Stampin Up Ovals Collection framelits dies for the body, hands, ears & feet along with the small heart punch for the nose and then a handmade oblong box measuring 3" x 2" to fit across the back of the bunny to give him stability to stand plus somewhere for the treats to hide! 

His ears were decorated with soft sky designer series paper and his spots were made by dipping an eraser top pencil into crumb cake ink and dotting all over!
