Timeless Elegance Milk Carton

Pin It
Here is a another project using the Gift Bag Punch Board.
I'm so in love with this board it is so versatile.
Libby Dyson an Aussie demo has the video tutorial for this on her Blog found HERE.
I have used the Timeless Elegance DSP, I love this DSP.
The colours in the DSP are Basic Black, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla.
I sponged the roses with Watermelon Wonder Ink.
I decorated the milk carton with tag of Watermelon Wonder, Basic Gray and Very Vanilla using the Triple Banner Punch.
The stamp set is Words of truth.
The rose is made using Spiral Flower Die which I dipped into Dazzling Diamonds.
The ribbon is 1/8" Silver Ribbon.

Happy Birthday Joy

Pin It
Yesterday was my friend Joy's birthday.
I used one of the bags I had made for the WOW at The GLAMS team meeting.
 I filled it with some ribbon and other embellishments and of course some chocolate.
 The flower is another variation using the Decorative Label Punch.

Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Pretty Petals DSP Stack.

I also used Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz which is retired.
I made this card to match.
On Wednesday at our meeting Gail Ruddle gave us Card Maps and Challenged us to used them in a card/page/project.
When I looked at them, the second from the bottom on the right jumped out at me.
I swapped the sentiment and embellishment.
 I love these 2015-2017 In Colour Blossom Accents, which I added Gold Metallic Thread both above and below the centre panel on the card.
 The Stamp Set is Fabulous Four, stamped with Watermelon Wonder and I added Basic Pearls to the dots between the words.
Then I wrapped Gold Metallic Bakers Twine around the card.
This the inside using happy birthday from Butterfly Basics.

Mojo has been found

Pin It
 I have been missing my Mojo for paper crafting, I think a lot of it is that I still need to sort my craft room.
I was on the brink of not continuing with Stampin' Up.
At 11th hour I decided that it was okay to be a hubby demo and enjoy the benefits of a discount on my product.
I have struggled with myself mostly about not getting my business up and running since moving here to Christchurch nearly 2 years ago.
Just after I had placed my order to stay current as a demo and my BBB (big brown box) had arrived, I was asked by 2 demonstrators if I would do the WOW for our Team Meeting last night.
So I agreed and had to first find my craftroom, then my mojo.
I decided to show case the Gift Bag Punch Board, which I really hummed and hared about buying which I'm so glad I did, it is so versatile you can bags as it suggests to boxes etc.
Here's a large box that I made to our our standard size cards (14.8cm x 10.5cm).
 I have used Mint Macaron, Pacific Point Card Stock and Pretty Petals DSP Stack.
 The flower is made using the Decorative Label Punch.
Bibi Cameron has a video on them here.
 I made 6 cards to go into the gift box.
I cased them from Dawn Griffith.
 I have used the Hello You Thinlits.
I made 2 birthday cards.
 2 Hello Cards.
2 thanks cards.
Recipes for the cards
Stamp Set: Crazy About You and Gorgeous Grunge.
Cardstock: Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Pacific Point, Very Vanilla,
 Gold Glimmer Paper and Pretty Petals DSP Stack.
Ink: Mint Macaron and Pacific Point.
Extras: Big Shot, Magnetic Plate, Hello You Thinlits, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Gold Sequins, basic Pearls, Handheld Stapler. and Staples.
I will be back tomorrow with some more of the boxes and bags I made.
