Flower Shop 'Thank You'

Hi there

Well it's been a full on day today starting with a 45 minute walk at 7:30am!  I know who gets up at that time on a Saturday morning.  We have been busy working in our rental property getting it redecorated so we can re-let it.  I've decided I don't want to be a painter - sanding ceilings is not much fun.

I did manage to get a card made during my 'lunch break'.  It came together very quickly which was great.



Supplies:
Stamp Set - Flower Shop, Petite Petals, Four You
Card Stock - Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Ink - Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette
DSP - Subtles Paper Stack (retired)
Other - Petite Petals Punch, Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Well I think I'll be heading to bed soon - my body is feeling a bit weary.  Catch you back soon with another creation.

Last of the work Easter Treats

Hi there

Here's the last of the treats I'm making for work.

It uses a 6 x 6" piece of DSP which means you can get four boxes out of one sheet of DSP.  It also uses the Envelope Punch Board like yesterdays treat.  You punch and score it at 2" and 4" on all sides.  The only difference is how you fold it.


This is yet another wonderful creation I've cased from Sam Donald's blog

Supplies:
Stamp Set - Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card Stock - Very Vanilla, Coastal Cabana
DSP - Retro Fresh
Other - Envelope Punch Board, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Early Espresso Bakers Twine

More Easter Treats

Hi there

Here's the third of my Easter treats that I'm doing for work.  I didn't want to make 60 of the same thing so I'm making a variety of boxes so I don't get bored!

Here's a side view
 And a front view

This box is another one made using the Envelope Punch Board and a 6 x 6" piece of DSP.  It has a flap at the back so it's reuseable :)

I have one more to show you tomorrow which is scored the same way as this one but just folded a different way to create another cute treat box.

Supplies:
Stamp Set - Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card Stock - So Saffron, Very Vanilla
DSP - Retro Fresh
Other - Envelope Punch Board, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Early Espresso Bakers Twine

Easter Treat - Tiny Gift Bag

Hi there

I hope you've had a good day today - mine was not too bad for a Tuesday :)

Here is another style of treat holder that I'm making for work.  This is again cased from Sam Donald's blog.



Isn't it cute - the second photo shows a sneak as to what is inside :).  You can get 6 of these bags out of a 12 x 12 sheet of DSP and they hold 8 mini Easter eggs.  I think in the original bag Sam had closed it shut with one of our hardware clips but as I need to make a few of these I used Bakers Twine to create handles.

Supplies:
Stamp Set - Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card Stock - Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla
DSP - Retro Fresh
Other - Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Early Espresso Bakers Twine, Envelope Punch Board

Don't forget to check back tomorrow morning for this weeks deals.

Work Easter Treats

Hi there

With Easter not far off I thought I'd better make a start on making the Easter treats for work.  I've chosen the Retro Fresh DSP and will make a variety of treat boxes and fill them with mini eggs.

Here's the first one I made.



It's called a "Bag in a Box" and is made using the Envelope Punch Board.  I got the idea from Pootles - I love her blog.

This little bag holds eight mini Easter eggs and is perfect to give to staff at work.  Check back tomorrow for another treat creation.

Supplies:
Stamp Set - Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card Stock - Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla
DSP - Retro Fresh
Ink - Baked Brown Sugar
Other - Envelope Punch Board, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Small Oval Punch, Early Espresso Bakers Twin

Thank You cards

Hi there

What a beautiful weekend we've had.  This afternoon Phil and I went for a long walk in Cornwall Park/One Tree Hill (or No Tree Hill as some call it).  It was so lovely and warm it felt like summer.  There were so many people up there - having picnics, BBQ's, walking the dog, kids on bikes - it's great to see the park being used.

Today's cards are little 3 X 3" 'thank you' cards I made to go in with my customers orders.


I wanted the card to have some sort of dimension as I've only used one layer of card stock - to achieve this I've adhered buttons as the flowers.  Another way to get height is to use Crystal Effects on part of the image - maybe I'll do that next time round :)

Supplies:
Stamp Set - Embellished Events
Card Stock - Whisper White
Ink - Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler
Other - Buttons (retired)

I hope you all have a good week.
