Hello Everyone! I have been M.I.A lately from blog land and haven't crafted in weeks ..sigh :( My kids birthdays in heaven just passed and I haven't had the mojo to do anything. But I did some retail therapy to help me get back into the groove and I am helping that will help with some of my new crafty goodies!!
This week over at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge blog we have a super fun challenge for you!! We are asking you all to make a project by creating elements used in wrapping a gift. Ideas for elements are: tags, gift wrap, gift card holders, and note cards etc.
I decided to do a Stationary box for a friend of mine. She never gets Christmas cards out because of lack of time & she complains about the price of stamps. So as a little gift and a bit of a chuckle I am sending her this box filled of stamps, cards, tags and little cards as well as a little note pad. After seeing this pic I am gonna spruce up the inside a bit with some personalizing for her but in case she is reading this I don't want her to know it is for her!
This box contains 4 of each style ~ A6 sized cards, 3X3 cards and tags. The little pocket on the bottom right is where I will put the stamps. To make the image on the front of the box I used PK-019 What's so Funny Snowman. I took the tree & snowflakes from that set also to do the 3X3 cards. For the A6 cards I used the snowman from PK-327 Winter Peekers. I just love how cute those images are!!!! It is hard to see in the pictures but I used dimensionals to give it some depth.
The other supplies I used are:
Paper - Figgy Pudding by Basic Grey
White Gel Pen
Stampin Up Ink
Tinsel Glitter by Marth Stewart
Twine from Papertrey Ink
and a few other items I am not sure of the names
I hope you come along and play with us over at thePeachy Keen Stamps Challenge blog with this super fun & cute challenge! See you there!!
