New 3-D Club's Free Tutorial

Anyone who knows me as a Stamper and Paper Craft Artist knows that my favorite things to make are 3-D items. Since the classes seem to be wildly popular, and everyone asks for the directions to my projects, I thought I would start a 3-D Club! This club will meet once a month on the 3rd Wednesday of each month to create a new 3-D Project. Space is limited to 6 people, but additional clubs are always possible.

Tutorials and the materials to create your own sample project will also be available by mail each month for those club members who can't attend in person.

Each club member will receive a basic kit containing a 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog, a role of Sticky Strip, a Glue Stick and a sheet of Stampin' Dimensionals as my gift to you for joining.

In addition each club member will take turns reaping the Hostess Rewards, which will include a minimum of
*$15 in FREE Stampin' Up! Merchandise
* a Level 1 Hostess Set from current catalogs
(free products and Hostess Sets may be increased with additional orders)

The cost of belonging to this club is a minimum order of $25 per month before shipping and tax for the 6 months the club will run. Join me for a barbecue dinner and first club meeting on Wednesday August 18th at my house @ 7:00.

Please call me at 413-388-3022 if you are interested or want more information! Hope to see you there!

Here is the Free Sampler Tutorial for my upcoming 3-D Club.

Supplies needed:
(1) piece of 6 x 9 1/2" Card Stock or DSP
(2) pieces of 4 1/2 x 7" Coordinating Card Stock
(1) piece of 3 1/2 x 6" Coordinating Card Stock

Bone Folder, Sticky Strip, Ink Pads and Stamps of Choice

Outside of the Book:
Begin by scoring the 6 x 9 1/2" at 4 1/2 and 5 as shown in the picture

Inside Pockets
Score each 4 1/2 x 7" Piece of Coordinating card stock at 1/4" and 1/2" on each of the 4 1/2" sides and one of the 7" sides, and fold on the scored lines. These are the two sides and the bottom.

Use a 1 1/2" Circle punch in the center of the pocket on the top side lining up the edge with the notches at the center point.

Cut away the two bottom corners as shown.

Stamp and embellish the pockets as desired.

Attach the bottom and sides of the pockets to the inside of the book, lining them up as shown in the picture below, using 1/4" Sticky Strip.

Cover Flap:
Score the 6 x 3 1/2" AT 1 1/2" and 2"
Use your Corner Rounder on one side of the flap as shown.
Embellish as Desired and attach to the back of the Outside Book.

The top pocket will hold 4 finished 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" greeting cards, and the bottom will hold 4 envelopes.

Have fun trying your own!
