Xmas socks gift box with acetate front




Hi everyone

I'm back today with this beautiful gift box. I bought a pair of cosy socks from my local pound shop and decided to make a gift box for them.
I really love how you can take something so little and turn it into something beautiful with the right packaging.

I hope you will agree that this box gives a luxurious feel and I'm so pleased with how it turned out.

I have used the Merry Music DSP, foil snowflakes, gold foil, black shimmer ribbon and the gold faceted gems...all of which are available from Stampin Up.

I have done a video tutorial showing you how I made this project...please find the link below.

Quilted Christmas biscuit gift box


Hi everyone

I hope you are all well. Today's project is this lovely gift box that holds a tin of shortbread biscuits.

I don't normally use red and gold together as I prefer using silver. I have to admit though I love how this box turned out, especially with the little pop of Emerald Envy too.

I've used the Quilted Christmas DSP, The Little things stamp set and the ribbon is the crinkled seam binding ribbon.

I hope you like this project as much as I do. I will leave the link below to my video tutorial for all of you that would like to see how I made it.

I have uploaded a tutorial on youtube showing how I made it. If you would like to check it out I will leave the link below for you.

Merry Music window candle box using Stampin Up supplies




Good evening everyone, I hope you are all well.

Here is my latest project for you all. These beautiful heart shaped candles I got from a shop called Tiger, I got 8 in a pack for only £2! What a bargain. They had them in this lovely pink colour and also in a red. I decided to opt for non traditional xmas colours by bringing in Melon Mambo.
I'm so pleased I did as I love the black/ pink colour combo. Let me know what you all think in the comments.

I used the Merry Music speciality DSP from Stampin Up as well as the Sweet and Sassy Framelit dies.

I've uploaded a tutorial to youtube for those of you who would like to make one of these boxes, here is the link below:


I just want to thank all of you that follow my blog or have subscribed to my youtube channel....it means so much to me.
I know I've been a bit MIA lately but I'm going to try my best to be around more often.

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day wherever you are.

Huge Advent calendar

Hi everyone

Sorry it's been a long time since my last post. It's took me a while to get into a routine with my new job. I'm loving it though so all good.

 Hope you are all well.

Today's project is one I shared with you all last year but this time I've used current products and I've also uploaded a video tutorial.



The 1st picture is using retired products and the one below is using current products. I made these for an order that someone wanted and luckily she loves them.

It is really easy to make although it can be time consuming.

You will need to make 25 individual boxes the measurements for each box is below:

cardstock measuring 8 1/2" x 6 1/2" score on the long side at 2", 4", 6" and 8" score on the short side at 2", 4" and 6".

matts to go on top measure 1 3/4"x 1 3/4" for the cardstock layer and 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" for the DSP layer.

Please find the link below for my video tutorial:

Card and matching gift box using hand stamped DSP

Hi everyone

The team that I'm in had a challenge this week to make a couple of project using our own hand stamped DSP.
This is not something I do very often as I'm always sure I will mess it up haha.

Anyway I thought I'd share with you all what I came up with...I'm actually really pleased with the results and I hope you like it too.



I hand stamped a full sheet of A4 Whisper white card to create my DSP. I used the Blooms and Wishes stamp set and Smoky Slate and Powder Pink inks.

Here's what I used to make each project:

Card:
Smoky Slate card measuring 11 3/4" x 4 1/4" scored on long side at 5 7/8" to create a top folding card base.
DSP Matt measuring 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"
Pretty Label punch
Blooms and Wishes stamp set
silver metallic ribbon
1/8" silver ribbon
scraps of whisper white and smoky slate for the sentiment

Gift Box:
Smoky slate card measuring 9 1/8" x 5 1/8" score on the long side at 1 1/8", 4", 5 1/8" and 8". Then score on the short side at 1 1/8" and 4"
cut up the score lines on the long side and make tabs from the squares, then fold up to create your box.
DSP matt measuring 2 5/8" x 2 5/8" and then 3pieces measuring 2 5/8" x 7/8"
Blooms and Wishes stamp set and scraps of whisper white and smoky slate for the sentiment
1/8" silver ribbon

Coffe Cafe thanks a latte card

Hi everyone

I'm back today to share with you some thank you cards I've made.

I left my previous job last Thursday and I wanted to make some cards to give out to the amazing staff who quickly became friends over the years, to express my gratitude to them all.

I used the new Coffee Café stamps and matching framelits as well as the new In colour bitty bows. I saw a similar idea on Pinterest by a lady called Lisa Pretto and changed it up slightly.
I'm so pleased with how they turned out and just hope the recipients loved them as much as I do.


I used the 2017- 2019 In colours for these cards.

I've done a youtube tutorial showing you how I made them, I'll leave the link below for you all.


I hope you like how they turned out.

Vertical Greetings tall milk carton style box

Hi everyone

I'm back with this beautiful gift box that holds a reed diffuser set. I got mine from the local £1 shop with a view to make a gift box myself.

I love the effect of heat embossing, it's like magic haha.



The version on the left is in Early Espresso cardstock and I've used gold embossing powder, gold glimmer paper, scrap of very vanilla, classic label punch and gold 1/8" ribbon.
The one on the left is made using Basic Black cardstock, silver embossing powder and silver 1/8" ribbon.

I really do love it, I hope you do too.

I've uploaded a video tutorial to YouTube and I'll leave the link below. I'd really like for you to go and have a look and if you like it, show your support and subscribe to my channel.


I'll be back with another project next week.

Mini album gift box holds 4 albums and room for adhesives

Hi guys

I'm back with another project today for you all....this time I am making sure I post it on the day haha.

I've designed this myself to specifically fit 4 of the mini albums that I done on my last video tutorial. Inside the box is another box which I'll put some washi tape and glue, the idea is that the recipient can start adding pictures to the albums straight away.

The finished dimensions of the box are 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 5" so it's a great sized box.





Here are the measurements of card that you will need:

Base of the box
Early espresso card measuring 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" score on all 4 sides at 1/2"

Sides of the box x 4
Early espresso card measuring 5" x 5" score at 1/2" on 1 side on all pieces

Inner box
crumb cake card measuring 9" x 9" score on all 4 sides at 3"

Lid
crumb cake measuring 6 5/8" x 6 5/8" score on all sides at 1/2" and 1"

I hope you all like this project. I have uploaded a video tutorial...I will leave a link below.
