Happy Tuesday everyone! I can’t believe that here we are, June 9th, I have the windows OPEN and it’s 70 degrees. It’s Iowa for goodness sakes…usually the humidity and the A/C have settled in for the long haul. I seem to start all my posts lately with some kind of weather comment.
OK onto my creation tonight. I am SO pleased with this..not because it’s any great stamping masterpiece…but because I made the box top and bottom all by myself! I didn’t download a template or follow instructions..it all came out of my head. For me this is pretty amazing (being math challenged…and me a home schooling Mom Ha Ha!) I picked up Papercrafts 225 Cards and Gifts Magazine the other day and was inspired by the little note set on page 20. The designer used a box she had lying around the house…so I came up with my own using kraft CS and acetate for the lid. Hope you like it…If you want the template or instructions drop me an email and I will gladly send you them. The cards are 4x4.
Supplies: Colonial white CS CTMH, kraft CS Hobby Lobby, Acetate Sheetload cards, Cocoa grosgrain ribbon CTMH, Treasure Life SS CTMH, Say It In Style SS CTMH, Olive and Chocolate inks CTMH.
I hope you are all enjoying your Tuesday. I have spent most of the day doing my spring cleaning, I know late as ever. The rest of the day was spent planning my kids up coming school year.
I have really enjoyed some blog posts recently. Especially Kathi’s Birdhouse and Jeanne’s Teapot. I can’t forget Mere’s post on Glenn Beck and Beth’s wonderful flower shots. Alanna made a gorgeous Bella card and Leisa a beautiful 4 U Bella card. Who needs TV?
Have a wonderful evening.
