For the last few weeks, we’ve been in hardcore Creating Keepsakes University (CKU) planning mode around here. For me, that’s meant developing my all-day album workshop, Geek for Technique. What a blast I’ve had coming up with cool techniques and products to include. Not wanting to limit all of the fun to our events, I’m going to share special guest blog posts from some of my class sponsors here on our blog in the weeks leading up to our fun event. And each post comes with a giveaway. Bonus!
Today we’re kicking things off with Susan McShirley, the incredibly passionate person behind SRM Stickers. I’m thrilled to be using their new glassine bags in my class, but she’s here to talk about their many amazing container options. Take it away, Susan!
What a treat to visit the Creating Keepsakes Blog today. I’m Susan, owner of SRM Stickers, and I’d like to share with you some ideas using container products from SRM.
First up is our very first container, the Tube. Tubes are clear plastic and come in five different sizes. Here’s are newest member of the Tube family, the Tiny Tube.
Tubes can be used for storage, party favors or as gift containers.
Check out this set of Mini Tubes from SRM Design Team member Deana Boston as a clever way to store her Twinery Twine. Don’t you love the rainbow effect?
SRM added clear Pillow Boxes in three sizes to our line in January and they are too much fun! Again, you can use them for storage, party favors or even as gift boxes. And I love that you can emboss them and ink them too!
Now let’s see some of the fun things you can do with them! Here’s a lovely birthday box created by Clare Buswell that’s been embossed and inked and embellished with SRM’s Labels and Border stickers.
This small Pillow Box was created by Guest Designer Tessa Wise as a container to hold nail polish. Love this idea! Tessa embellished her little box with SRM Border Stickers and just a touch of twine.
Melanie Jarocki on the SRM Design Team just discovered that crayons fit perfectly into the large Pillow Box and she created this darling teacher gift. The Pillow Box is embellished with SRM’s Teacher stickers and a touch of The Twinery Shimmer Twine. YUM!
And for our last, but certainly not least, container, we show you SRM’s new Glassine Bags that come in five sizes. There are so many different uses for these beauties! Just to name a few….
• Gift Bag
• Treat Bag
• Party Favor
• On a Card (decorative, gift-card holder, etc.)
• On a layout (photo pocket, journaling pocket, a spot for memorabilia, etc.)
You can emboss them, ink them, stamp them, punch them, and the list goes on and on. Here’s a few projects using these bags. They are sure to become a staple in your crafting stash!
On this beautiful layout, Deana Boston used a small glassine bag to hold a journaling tag. She embellished the bag with SRM Wedding stickers.
Clare Buswell likes to use her Glassine Bags as envelopes for her beautiful cards. I love how she embellished the bag with stickers to coordinate with her adorable card!
And Tracey Taylor loves using her SRM Glassine Bags in mini albums. They are perfect for tucking special mementos into your book.
