Stationary Box~ Thanks Jackie!!

Happy Wed.!!

Hi~ya All!!

A very happy hump day to everyone as this week is moving right along. I wanted to share with you a stationary box I created a couple of weeks ago using some of my SU designer paper. The original tutorial is by a SU demonstrator and very talented lady name Jackie. She created this gorgeous box and stationary set a couple of years ago 2008, if I recall correctly. I had some of the same DS paper which is a little heavier cardstock than normal and is perfect for this box.

I purchases some extra DS papers because I loved the color combinations, you may remember seeing it on a card I made for my sons birthday last year. The original tutorial is
HERE, and there is also a video on SCS by Beate if you are interested. I will be creating a few more of these for gift items.

I used my "Nellie Snellen" flower punches, which was a gift from my dear friend
Kelly, "thanks again girlfriend". Aren't they just too cute? I love that you can punch and emboss your flowers in any colors you need. I don't always have the right color prima flowers, and when I saw this punch set, I figured it would save me some $$$$$. Use it on thinner cardstock, I actually used it on SU, but it is a little more difficult to punch, and you can damage your punches with the heavier papers.

Stampin' Up! has some new designer series paper in the 2010-2011 catalog. If you are in need of a catalog and don't have a demonstrator, please feel free to contact me or purchase one HERE.
Have a great rest of the week everyone. Catcha soon!

Hi, Lillie! Thanks for dropping by! I really did miss visiting and seeing all your wonderful creations while I was spending time with our families -- I've got some catching up to do, LOL!!!

Wow, this stationary box is amazing!!! I haven't did one of these in a while but yours is absolutely fabulous!!! Mine always seem a bit plain to me.

Well, I'm truly glad to be back. After I check out what else you've crafted while I've been away, I'll head over do some more visiting with others and then start crafting -- can't wait!

Hugs, girlfriend!!!
