Fry Box Bigz L Die by Stampin' Up! & Sizzix.

Fry Box Bigz L Die Stampin Up

This is another die I "needed" and why not get it while it is on sale!  You can see in this sample the one on the left they cut straight across the top and added a handle.  This die not only cuts but also puts in the score marks.  I use a bone folder to make nice clean creases on the folds. 

The box on the right was stamped with the coordinating stamp set called All about Sugar.

All About Sugar Photopolymer Stamp Set
Seems like an interesting name for a stamp set that coordinates with a fry box don't you think? But then again most of us will be putting something sweet in the boxes, Right?

Here are a few more great samples featuring the Fry Box Bigz Die.

I love the pop of the Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black together.  The stamp used for this paper crafting project is a single stamp called Blended Bloom.  If you enjoy water coloring this is a great stamp to watercolor once you have stamped it or just stamp itin black on colored cardstock as shown here.

Cutting the bag out of patterned designer paper is another option.

Ever Wonder?

Hello Stampers,

It's Border Buddies Saturday, Patsy Here!

Do you ever wonder what a day in the life of a Stampin' Up! demonstrator looks like?  Well it has changed drastically since we first started.  After all 18 years ago there were no stamping blogs, no pinterest, no YouTube and I even had to call all my orders in.

So in the "old" days the catalog was my only inspiration - and since I was not creative back then I copied and cased everything from the catalog.  As the years went on, I became more creative and now can sit down and come up with many of my own ideas.  But usually inspired by something I see. 

Today's cards are taking the same idea and just changing the orientation and colors.  It gives the card and entirely different look. Stamped with the Peaceful Pines Stamp Set and cut out with the Big Shot using the Perfect Pines Framlits.

Peaceful Pines BB Card Sketch 002
This card is a horizontal position with one of the trees stamped and cut out, the other two just cut out of card stock.  The patterned paper is the Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper.


Perfect Pines Framelit Dies #stampinup

This card is in the portrait position and I didn't stamp any trees just cut them out with the framelits.  The patterned paper in this card is from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper.

So back to a day in the life of a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator - I will share my typically day with you.  The beauty of my job is the flexibility so I can fit in my priorities of family, friends and life.

I start my day with checking my Emails and responding.  Then I check out what is new on pinterest and pin some of my favorite pins. 

  • Then if it is a blogging day I spend a few hours creating some blog posts. 
  • If it is a creative day I spend the entire day just stamping and having fun.
  • If it is a Newsletter day I create a newsletter for my customers and another for my team members.
  • Once a month it is card class day and I spend the afternoon with stamping friends.

I finish up each day with checking emails again and responding.  My day's are not 9-5 but I fit the activities of my business in between my life.   For me it is all about the flexibility - where else could I take off for 3-4 weeks at a time and travel with my retired hubby.   Of course I do work a bit on the road too!

If you think that this sounds like something you might like to do Alison and I are always looking for fun new team members no matter how near or far you will be part of an amazing team.  Getting started with Stampin' Up! is super easy.  Just $99 in the US  and $125 CA can get you a starter kit full of everything you hand pick.
