Pillow Box Die No. 3

I have been trying to upload this for a while but my blog has been misbehaving - sorry.

This pillow box has been made using acetate and it was full of mini eggs until Summer found it!

It is so quick to make and so effective. If you have a go, please post a link in my comments section so I can go and have a look.

Have a great weekend

Pillow Box Die day 2!

As promised this is day 2 of fab uses for the pillow box die and not a box in sight!! Just this gorgeous basket.

This is the inside of the basket. It uses 3 pillow box die cuts and is a really good size.

I decorated it with the springtime paper again and used the baby blossoms stamps with the easy to use stamp a majig.

Let me know what you think and I'll see you soon for another idea for this fantastic die!

Have a great day

Pillow Box Die

I wanted to show you how versatile the new exclusive dies are from Stampin UP! Over the next few days I will show you what you can do with one of my favourite dies - the pillow box.

I got the instructions for this box from this very talented lady here StampinT

The top and bottom are made from the Springtime papers from the new mini catalogue and the pink bias binding is from the same catalogue.

The bottom is decorated with the bis binding in baja breeze and one of the gorgeous new bitty buttons This is the box opened.

You can close it as small as you need and it fitted the earrings I had bought as a gift perfectly!

You can buy all the items I have used here from me. There is a link to both current Stampin UP! catalogues on my blog and I would be more than happy to help you with any stampin UP! purchases or projects you would like.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

The Owl Punch!

Just a quick post today.

How cute is the owl punch?? I just love it and it's SO versatile. I was asked to make an anniversary card for some friends and I created this! I love the googly eyes.

I just couldn't resist writing this on the inside.

What do you think?

Have a great day

Baby Blossoms

I love the new mini catalogue and I thought I would show you something I created using the Springtime Designers Series Paper and the Baby Blossoms stamp set.

This is called a Box in a Bag and the instructions can be found over at splitcoast stampers
I used the designer papers to create the box in a bag and then used Rose Red cardstock to crate the bottom

I used Rose Red cardstock again to punch out frame and then I used Baja Breeze to stamp the flowers.

I used the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set together with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch pack to create the "buttons" around the bottom.

I used the gorgeous Seam binding to close the bag.

The card is almost a complete case from my Stampin UP! moms page here I'm sure she won't mind.

I just added my own little touches to the card.

I hope that you all enjoyed the Royal Wedding and the long weekend. The house seems very quiet since the girls went back to school. Hopefully though, that will mean more time for crafting.

Have a great day
