Lindt chocolate box using Stampin Up supplies

Hi guys

Hope you have all had a great weekend...I went to the caravan with my mam, Auntie and little legs. It wasn't the best weather but that didn't spoil good quality family time.

Anyway today I'm back to share this lovely little chocolate box, it holds a box of Lindt chocolate thins. I just love making presents extra special with some handmade packaging.




I just love the simplistic elegance of these colours together.

Here is what I've used:

Very Vanilla card (for the base) measuring 9" x 7 1/2" score on all 4 sides at 1/2" and 1 1/2"
Early Espresso card (for the lid) measuring 8 1/8" x 6 5/8" score on all sides at 1/2" and 1"
Gold foil measuring 5 7/8" x 4 1/2"
Early espresso card measuring 5 5/8" x 4 1/4"
Eastern Medallions thinlets
Eastern gold vinyl stickers
mini tassels assortment
gold 1/8" ribbon
metallic enamel shapes

I have done a video tutorial on youtube and I will add the link below if you would like to watch it. On the video I forgot to add the stickers on the sides of the lid, so I added them after.

I hope you like this project. All products can be purchased on my online shop just click on the 'shop now' tab at the top of my blog.

I just want to share with you all this birthday card I've just finished...most of the items I've used are from the 'party animal' suite in the spring/ summer catalogue.


This card is part of a weekly challenge on Facebook...the group is called Scrimpy's Stampin Up Forum you should check it out. Every week they upload a new sketch for people to put their spin on it. A great place for inspiration from a lot of different people.

You gotta love a freebie.
Make sure that enter the codes for the items from my previous post.

Anyway here I what I used

Whisper white card measuring 8 1/2" × 6 1/8" score at 4 1/4" on long side to create card base
Emerald envy card measuring 5 7/8" × 4"
Whisper white card measuring 5 5/8" × 3 3/4"
Balloon Adventures stamp set 
Party animal DSP
Emerald envy 1 /8" taffeta ribbon
Emerald envy ink pad 
Crushed curry ink pad
Stitched shapes framelits
Crushed curry enamel shapes (from regals colour family)

I hope you like how it turned out.

House style storage caddy



Hi everyone I'm so excited to share with you this project I've just finished. I was inspired by a project in an old magazine and I've adapted it to make it my own.

Items I've used are

Thick whisper white cardstock
Pool party cardstock
A little foxy DSP
1/8" HOLE punch
Tear and tape 
Tombow 
Brands for drawers are from my stash but not Stampin Up

Here are instructions
Thick whisper white card measuring 11 1/2" × 8 1/4" score on all sides at 3 1/2" then cut as shown below


Then turn it over and place adhesive as next picture


I attached the flaps to the outside of the box (this is too keep the inside smooth so whatever we put in doesn't catch) place to one side until after the next step.

For the drawer sleeves you will need thick whisper white card measuring 8 1/4" × 3 1/2" score on long side at 1/2", 2", 4 3/8" & 5 7/8" place adhesive on thin strip and glue together.
You will need 3 of these.
Then I used tear and tape to adhere all 3 of the drawer sleeves on top of each other and then attach these to the previous box we made.

Drawers you will need thick whisper white card measuring 6 1/4" × 5 1/8" score all sides at 1 3/8" and assembly as we would any other box base. I used DSP panels measuring 2 1/2" × 1 1/4" to decorate the front. Again you will need to do 3.

I cut 2 pieces of whisper white card to 3 1/2" × 4 1/2" covered with DSP and attached to sides. Then I cut a piece of card to 3 3/4" × 4 1/2" covered with DSP and attached to the back.

Inner roof section you will need whisper white card measuring 7 1/2" × 3 1/2" score on long side at 2" & 5 1/2" cut both end sections into triangles and attach as shown in picture below.


For the roof tiles
Thick whisper white card measuring 3 3/4" × 3 1/4" and cover with desired DSP. 
Piece of DSP measuring 1 3/4" × 3 3/4" score on short side at 7/8"
Now we need to make 2 hinges for one side of the roof. White card measuring 3/4" × 1 1/2" score on short side at 3/8". Attach to each of the triangles on the inner roof section, the other half in one of the roof tiles. 
Then attach the DSP we cut to one side of the remaining roof tile lining it up just under the score line. Line it up and when you're happy with the placement attach the other half of the DSP to the other roof tile. 

Finally I put the project on a base 
Pool party card measuring 4 x 4" I cut 3 pieces at stuck them all on top of each other then I used tombow to fix our house caddy to the base.

I really hope you like what I have done. All products can be our purchased from my online shop just click on the link here on my blog. Please don't forget to use the hostess code featured on my blog if your order is under £150 to enter you into my rewards club.
