#1 Sale-A-Bration Sunday 6 Sided Male Gift Box

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog & the start of my new series, Sale-A-Bration Sunday! I did this series last year & lots of people loved it so i thought i would bring it back. I will continue this until the end of SAB which is 31st March 2018.

To kick the series off i have a gorgeous 6 sided gift box that would be great to gift to a male. I love the shape of this box & its also a really good size. I put some treats in mine but you can put in whatever you like. I hope you like it.





This would also be a great box for Fathers Day. It is very easy to make and considering the size of it you don't really need a lot of card. This box would look great in many other colours to.

Gorgeous Drop Fronted Storage Box For Cards/Envelopes

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog on this fabulous Friday!!
I hope you have all had a good Week. Mine was very busy i am changing bedrooms with my Daughter. Now that i have my own craft room my bedroom is sort of empty haha. My Daughters bedroom is a bit to small for her now so we are swapping!! I like her room, its lovely and cosy and now she will have lots of space in my old room. It will be all finished by tonight so we will be officially 'moving' in then.

Today i have a really cute little project that will look really pretty on your desk. It also serves a good purpose by storing cards & envelopes. Of course you don't have to use it for cards & envelopes! You can use it for whatever you like. It is not hard to make and i will be definitely making some more of these.

I hope you like it :-)





I think this is such a cute little box and will look great on your desk or shelf. Any cards that you make you can pop them in your little storage box!

I used the beautiful Painted with love dsp and Heart happiness stamp set, these are 2 of my favourite items from the new catalogue.

Please check out my YouTube video which you can find the link at the end of this post. I have also listed all the products i used for this box.

Change The Look Of Your DSP & Ribbon

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog. I can not believe it is Wednesday already! How quick is this week going ?? If you follow my Facebook page you will know that starting from Sunday 28th January, i will be bringing Sale-A-Bration Sunday back!! I just thought i would mention it on here in case you do not follow my page. I would love it if you did follow it though :-)

Sale-A-Bration Sunday is a series focusing on all the lovely freebies you can get your hands on! I will be showing you what you can create with them. I did that series last year & i know lots of people really enjoyed it. Please make sure you join me on Sunday :-)

Today i have been using the gorgeous Stampin blend markers. I LOVE these markers, they are so easy to use and create flawless & smooth coloring. Basically, i am showing you how easy it is to change the look of your DSP & ribbon using the Stampin Blends. Petal passion DSP is perfect for this. I hope you like what i have created.







How different does the DSP look once it is coloured in?? I think the card & Box look seriously beautiful!!I love the colours. As we have a good selection of stampin blend markers, you can colour your paper in any colour you like. The paper has just come to life!

This cute gable box & card would make a beautiful coordinated gift for someone. The box would be ideal for some chocolates or Nail polish, Lip balm etc Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions. you can find the link at the end of this post & also a list of all the products i used.

I will be back on Friday with another project :-)

Thank you
Love

Amazing exploding Gift Box With Pull Out Draws

Hi Everyone,

Sorry this post it late, i have been busy decorating and i have also injured my back :-( I was moving a chest of draws and when i went to stand up i couldn't! I am in so much pain, i hope it goes away after a good nights rest.

Today i have a really cool box for you. As i mentioned in my tutorial i got this idea from a Youtuber called Shrusti Patil, i have linked her tutorial in my description bar on YouTube. I love this box, however i did change the measurements as Shrusti used a very large piece of card to make her box and we do not do that size. I changed it to a 12 x 12" piece :-) I hope you like it.





This box is just so cool!! I really do love it. You can make it for so many different occasions too. The draws are very roomy so you can fit lots of gifts in them.

This box is also really simple to make. You do need lots of card and pieces of DSP but it is so worth it. I used the Tutti Fruiti DSP for my box. I have to admit i was not keen on that paper when i first seen it. I love it now! Its just a really cheery and happy paper.

I really enjoyed making this project and i am sure you will to. Please watch my YouTube tutorial for full instructions, i have put the link for the video at the end of this post.
