Envelope Punch Board Jumbo Tealight Box - Christmas Countdown Project No. 4

I do like dinky and you don't get an awful lot dinkier than this one !

This is my Jumbo Tealight in a not quite so jumbo box.  Its small and neat and great because, again, like my last Christmas project, you can get four of these babies out of one sheet of 12 x 12 DSP/card stock.

Made using the Envelope Punch Board, this project is quick and really easy.

How you dress it up is up to you.  I opted again for super stylish Gold and Very Vanilla, this time with a little touch of pretty lace and a sparkly shiny Year of Cheer Embellishment.  There are 24 sparkly embellishments per pack in gold and silver metal in the form of either stars or what I think is a mistletoe branch.

I even dressed up the outside of the tealight with some matching Bundle of Love DSP.  I bought my jumbo tealights from George at Asda.  They are scented with Jasmine and smell devine.

These are fabulous little treat boxes - hope you like them too.

Here is my video tutorial giving you step by step instructions :-

So I am keeping it short and sweet - small and neat today.

Thanks for visiting  - I hope you pop back again.

Have a lovely day.

Something to Celebrate !

Out of the blue I received a really lovely and polite email from Matt at Dotcomgiftshop

Matt wrote that they were writing a post for their Blog about their favourite greeting card designs in Blogsphere and whilst researching they had found one of my Blog Posts

He asked if I would mind them mentioning it ?

Would I mind ? !!  Seriously - I was just so very pleased to hear that they liked it enough to feature it in a post highlighting ways in which sending cards for any occasion can "make someone's day".

The post features 16 different cards by different designers for occasions such as birthdays, good luck cards etc, and highlights techniques used for some of the cards.

This is what they chose to post about my humble little card

"Tell them how you feel – you’ll make their day!
Know someone amazing who deserves to be told?

Well Linda Parker of Papercraft with Crafty has designed the perfect card for the job.

We love the heart motif, banner cut-out and the gold gingham background of this creation. What a lovely way to tell someone how you feel! "

I was chuffed that they got what I was aiming for - that it is good to tell someone they are amazing. In doing so, they really made my day.   Its great to know that out there somewhere in Blogsphere, someone does like what you are doing and what you are creating.  Makes it all very worthwhile.

So its a huge "THANKS" from me to Matt and his team at dotcomgiftshop for the boost and the mention.

Why not hop over and take a look at what the dotcomgiftshop is all about - its a cracking concept with ideas and gifts for all occasions and so much more !   You will find Life Style links, Interior Design, Hobbies, Competitions.

Thanks again Matt for making my day xx

Hello Friend and Thank You x

Well I just had a couple of weeks leave with my hubby.

We have been decorating - and its been very tiring but rewarding.  The kitchen has been brightened up and refreshed with a new colour scheme.  Kitchen cupboards have been emptied and completely re-organised and now .............. its back to doing what I really enjoy !!

My customer Thank You packs are first on the agenda for me this week.  Catching up on a little backlog.  Pleased be assured you have not been forgotten and you are very valued and I shall be popping a little something in the post to you.

Here is a little work in progress - I have made so many Christmas and foiled projects that it was nice to get out my Fresh Floral DSP, Detailed Floral Thinlits, Stitched Shapes and Layering Ovals as a nice change.

I saw a card in the Annual Catalogue which inspired my cards today (on page 95).

So I have been die cutting like a demon.

Hope to have these out in the post later today.  Got some covered notebooks to prepare first though. More about those tomorrow.

Happy Monday everyone and thanks for stopping by today.

Linda xx

Christmas Countdown Project No 3 - Ferrero Rocher Christmas Bonbon Wrapper/Box with Labels to Love !

Christmas Countdown Project No 3 is a week early !   Only because the video tutorial I was supposed to be sharing here today ran into problems !  I deleted part of it in error.

So it's two Christmas Countdown projects from me in one week.

I bring you my Ferrero Rocher Christmas Bonbon Wrapper/Box.

These are lovely and really very quick and easy to make........and added bonus is that you can get four out of one sheet of 12" x 12" paper.  The Bundle of Love Speciality Designer Series Papers from the Annual Catalogue are brilliant for Christmas projects and also all year round projects.   I used my Envelope Punch Board for these Wrappers.

The Labels to Love stamp set and the Everyday Label Punch create the perfect size topper for these Wrappers.  I added some Christmas glamour by die cutting some little Mistletoe branches in Gold Glimmer Paper using the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.  This pack of dies has a lovely assortment of Pine branches, Pine cones, and Mistletoe to choose from.

Super stylish, they are great little treat holders for chocolate and sweetie treats, bottles of nail varnish, table decorations or even make great little Christmas tree decorations too !   So versatile.

Hope you like them - I did a video tutorial to talk you through the process.

That's 3 Christmas projects down, so I make that 9 left to go.

Thanks for stopping by - and I would love you to pop back for my next project.

Happy Friday everyone.

Linda xx
