Stationery Box

This is a stationery box I created using the template from Split Coast Stampers.

This is the view when the box is opened

And this is the view taken from above
I created a little notebook on the inside and then a little pocket for stamps. There is also room to add a pen when I can find one that matches the colour scheme.

I then created 4 little note cards to go in the back pocket using Kraft card stock and the My Sweet Pea stamp set which is available from the mini catalogue at just £9.95!

I used the Sweet Pea designer series paper stack for the inspiration for the cards and the box itself only took 2 sheets of the paper and you get 48 sheets in the pack for only £19.50! Think how many boxes you could create!

This is the Lovely as a Tree stamp set from the main catalogue

I then created 4 tags using the Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie and Kraft card stock and the Pumpkin Pie ribbon

and finally I created 3 little note cards using the bird stamp from the My Sweet Pea set again.

I REALLY enjoyed making this set and I am planning on making 2 more for my friends who are going to be doing me huge favours over the coming weeks.

Unfortunately, the pain in my arm has turned out to be more serious than I first thought and I have somehow managed to prolapse a disc in my neck which is pressing onto my spinal column and effectively trapping the nerve to my arm! I have to go into hospital next Friday to have my neck fused which I am not looking forward to, more so because I will be unable to drive for 6 weeks!

Hopefully I will be able to carry on crafting though!
