Ink.Stamp.Share May Showcase Blog Hop...


Stampin' Up!, Beauty of Friendship

Good afternoon and welcome to the Ink.Stamp.Share May Showcase Blog Hop.  You may be joining me from the lovely Tricia, or starting the hop here.

It is a very wet dreary day here in the UK so sit back and enjoy some crafty inspiration. I hope to get into my craft room later today once I have finished all the 'jobs'!

I have been teaching papercrafting for nearly 20 years and am celebrating my 10 years as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator this very month so, as you can imagine, I have a rather large back catalogue of projects and ideas so recently I decided to dig out some of the favourites and share them on a Tuesday evening at my Crafty Drop-in.

This week we made this angled box from several years ago but gave it an update with some new products. I used the gorgeous Beauty of Friendship bundle and the co-ordinating Beauty of the Earth DSP to create my project.

Stampin' Up!, Beauty of Friendship

I love the shape of this box and you squeeze the top so it opens up like a JUBBLY!!!  Do you remember Jubblies??

If you don't remember them, they were drinks in a triangular pack which would be frozen to create an ice lolly.  They were brilliant, provided you didn't press the bottom too hard, when they would pop out and escape the packet!!!  I had many a 'Jubbly' moment!

The gift tag is cut using the new Tailor Made Tags Dies which have the brilliant reinforcement pieces to ensure the ribbon doesn't snag the hole and they offer up a whole new decoration opportunity!  The tags come in two styles in varying sizes with a dotted decorative edge.

Tailor Made Tags

The tree is stamped in Soft Suede and the 'leaves' are stamped using the dotty stamp in Beauty of Friendship in Misty Moonlight, Merry Merlot, Bumblebee and Soft Suede.

I hope you like my project, you can purchase all the products I have used to make it by clicking on the links below.  Spend £45 and receive an exclusive male inspired tutorial bundle direct to your inbox!

I am now going to pass you on to the lovely Tracie who I know is going to have something gorgeous to share with us today.

Happy Weekend
