Decor Elements grow on you – Growth Chart ideas



Decor Elements grow on you – Growth Chart ideas

Growth Chart - Decor Element

As part of Stampin’ Up’s current Just for Kids promos (see the side bar buttons for details) a very fun Growth Chart was temporarily added to the Decor Elements line. 

Available until September 30th,  I thought I would share with you what a number of people have chosen to do with it.  From crafters to teachers to parents wanting to measure their kids – quite a few creative uses have been found. 

SU was good enough to share these ideas with demo’s on the demo website  ( Just another benefit to signing up! ) so I thought I would share them with you as well.

Whether you have children or not the following ideas will hopefully spark your own ideas of how to use this terrific new product in new ways.

If you are interested and would like to order this Chart or other Just for Kids promo items please call or email me before September 30th.




I’m still trying to figure out some fun ways to incorporate the cats with this fun piece but no inspiration just yet.  After all they are pretty much done growing (except for out in Sandycat’s case!).  My first thought was to create a set of platforms that float in front of the Growth Chart so it would look like they were climbing the tree.  Hmmm…have to give that some thought.  Anyone have any other ideas?  


In the meantime here’s what other demo’s and their customers have come up with:



You Can Take It With You!

Mom and demonstrator, Anne Warman from Barrington, Illinois, has her house on the market, but that didn’t stop her from using the Growth Chart! Her husband trimmed and painted a piece of plywood to place the vinyl on so when they sell their house they can take the Growth Chart wherever they go!




 Crushed Curry Creativity
Grandmother and demonstrator, Gail Beezley from San Antonio, Texas, recently bought a new (old) house with a separate studio. In true Stampin’ Up! style, she even painted the walls Crushed Curry! Gail says, “I fell in love with the Growth Chart and had to have it for my studio. I can’t wait until my granddaughter comes to visit so I can take a picture of her with it.”


  This Idea Really Measures Up
Lisa Clark thought beyond the traditional use of the Growth Chart and created a ruler for her craft room.  She cut out the ruler, then cut out the inch marks and adhered just the measurement marks to the edge of her counter. She then added the foot and half foot markers back in. Lisa uses this unobtrusive ruler to trim ribbon lengths, make quick measurements of scraps, visualize layouts, and more. 


When asked about the other pieces of the Growth Chart that she didn’t use, she says, “I may use the tree and birds elsewhere in my craft room for fun.”


For more exciting ideas and pictures check Monday’s post.

And don’t forget that starting Tuesday you will be able to download the new Holiday Mini and begin ordering.  For inspiring Holiday mini projects check out the Stampin’ Addicts blog hop that started today and continues until Monday at midnight (though you can also find the links on the Tour page at the top of my blog if you miss the live version)!  The first stop on the tour begins here.

Have a happy and fun weekend everyone and don’t forget to find some time to stamp!

Hugs and Blessings – Jean
