Slimline Candy Bar Shaped Gift Box - Video Tutorial

The style of this box really caught my eye a little while back when I saw my first one which had originated from Samantha Clayton at Mixed Up Crafts.

I have admired all the different variations in size and design that I have seen popping up since then, and decided that I would like to have a go at downsizing the design to make a slimline version to hold a bar of Galaxy - and this is it:-


The beautiful DSP (Designer Series Paper) that you can see here is from the Magnolia Lane 12 x 12 DSP which will be available to order from the new annual catalogue from 4th June.

I have made a step by step video tutorial, just in case you feel like you may like to have a go at making one yourselves.



Thanks for looking.   I would like to wish you a Happy Weekend and ..........."Happy Stampin!".

Bye for now.

Pretty Cubed Inserts for Clear Tiny Treat Boxes in Bird Ballad DSP - Video Tutorial

Take a clear tiny treat box and dress it up !



I decided to make some pretty cubed inserts for Stampin' Up!'s clear tiny treat boxes and chose to use the beautiful new Bird Ballad DSP which will be available to purchase from the new Annual Catalogue on 4 June.   It is by far my favourite pack of 12 x 12 inch DSP in the new catalogue.   I love the soft colours and all the pretty designs and illustrations.

I used a gorgeous floral design for today's project.

Of course, if you don't yet have the clear tiny boxes you could just make up a cube like mine using card stock instead of paper, and then jazz it up with some pretty DSP.   It's a fold flat design - so perfect for making up in batches and storing away ready for tiny gifts.

The cost for a pack of 16 Clear Tiny Treat Boxes is just £6.75 !



I used the Darling Label Punch Box to stamp and punch the sentiment on the front of my finished project.  The stamps, coordinating Darling Label punch, acrylic block and two little ink pads come in a really attractive tin box.  My box got dented during my craft room revamp, so I am not a happy little bunny !!

My inserts/cubes measure 1-7/8" inches square.

If you fancy having a go at making up some of my cute fold flat cubes,  I have put together an easy  step by step video tutorial for you to follow:-



These finished and dressed clear treat boxes would make great packaging for things such as bath bombs, wax melts, etc and would make great little Crafty Fayre items too.

I do hope you like today's project.

Thank you for looking, bye for now and ........."Happy Stampin!"

Free as a Bird Bundle - Coming Soon !

For yesterday's post I shared a card which I made using the Bird Ballad DSP (new in the upcoming Annual Catalogue).  It is part of the same suite of products called the "Bird Ballad Suite".

Today's card has been made using the bundle in the Suite which comprises of the beautiful Free as a Bird stamp set and also the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.



I have seen this branch of little birds coloured up in so many ways to reflect all the different beautiful breeds of wild birds.   Well I have a huge fondness for Robins, and chose to use my Stampin' Blends alcohol marker pens to create a row of the cuties.

I have kept it all nice and simple and think that this card would be suitable for both male and female recipients.  I just love the sentiment.

I hope you like today's project.   I cannot wait until the new Annual Catalogue goes live and have a feeling that Free as a Bird Bundle is going to be hugely popular.  Not long to wait now .................

Thank you for looking and I do hope you will pop back.

Bye for now and .................."Happy Stampin'!"

A Crafty Little Sneak Peek - Pretty Bird Ballad DSP Makes a Simple and Gorgeous Focal Point for Your Cards

Being a demonstrator means that I get to enjoy choosing from a select list of items from the upcoming catalogue before it goes live to my customers.

Well I can tell you that it is jam packed with goodies this year ...

First thing on my list was a pack of the absolutely beautiful Bird Ballad 12 x 12 inch DSP (Designer Series Papers).   If like me, you are a lover of birds and nature then you cannot fail to be drawn to the fabulous papers in this collection.  You will find these papers on page 92 of the new Annual Catalogue, which customers who have shopped with me during the last six months, will find dropping through their letterboxes in a couple of weeks.



For today's card I used my Detailed Floral Thinlits, Rectangle Stitched Framelits and Shimmery White card stock to make the base, the intricate cut background panel and a stitched frame.

Then I took my scissors to my gorgeous papers ..... and I have to admit that it was hard cutting into such pretty paper.  But I selected one of the cute little birdies and cut out the piece which forms the focal point for today's lovely little card.



I finished by adding some Pool Party card for the background, embellishing with some pearl accents, shimmery Pool Party ribbon and some punched leaves which I shaped to add a little dimension.

The sentiment is from the new Free as a Bird stamp set (also found on page 92 of the new Annual Catalogue.

This project has really inspired me to find more ways to use and promote the gorgeous Bird Ballad papers, so do watch this space.

Thanks so much for looking and I hope you will pop back.

Have a super Sunday and ............"Happy Stampin!"
