Silhouette Cameo Lessons, Envelope Punch Board Calculator & a Thank you!

Hello Friends,

Last week I was pleasantly surprised when Jules, over at Always with a Heart, left me a comment on my Crafty Envelope Punch Board Calculator page, saying that she had posted news of this great tool, on her blog!  From her blog post, I have had lots more crafty people, check out this useful tool and a few new subscribers.  I'd like to thank Jules and all my subscibers, for joining me on my crafty journey.

After my frantic week of trying to make all those backgrounds and cards for the On-line Card Class, last week, I needed to catch up and get ready for a couple of Silhouette Studio Lessons I have booked in on Sunday and Monday.

I have three ladies coming to the lessons, so to save lots of Cameo cutting time, I've actually cut out all the bits ready for them.  To package them up neatly (and so they don't lose any of the smaller bits) I've made these envelopes using my Crafty Envelope Punch Board Calculator 



Sometimes, when making an envelope using my Crafty Envelope Punch Board Calculator, you just need a little extra measurement length, like I did this time!  Here is what I do.....


....it's a part of my Stampin' Up Grid Paper, stuck to a piece of card stock and carefully placed on the edge of the board with Washi Tape ;)!  I think the photo below shows it pretty well....


I keep this little measuring extension in the box with the Board!

I'd better get on...., still lots to do before my ladies arrive on Sunday.

Happy crafting and thanks for popping by.

Hi Carole

Many thanks for that .. .. I just knew that some of my blogging friends would love the calculator as much as I do!

Great tip for the extra measurement too! You are clever!

Those crafty packages look wonderful.

Enjoy your time with those lucky ladies.

Love Jules xx

Thank you for your link to Always with a heart and thank you for another great post. You really do look skilled (far more so than I) and one of these days, I'll get around to booking a class so that I start using all of the stuff I have!
