I held a similar class a few years ago and thought it was time to bring it back as it's just the best and most clever box of cards ever! I used our new, eye catching Bohemian designer paper.
It's a matchbox style box made from the thick white board in our designer paper packs. It will hold several A2 (or 4 1/4" X 5 1/2") cards and envelopes inside. Plus there's an separate area for tags on the side.
The reason for the separate tags is to give a few options for greetings depending on the need. The main cards are left without greetings on purpose. These little punched tags have dimensionals on the back so you (or the recipient) can peel off the backing and add the greeting! It's wonderful if I do say so myself and a fabulous gift, especially for a non-stamper.
This class costs $12 and is this Wednesday, June 24th at 4 or 6 pm but unfortunately it's full already. If you are local and would like to attend this class please let me know and I might schedule another.
***If you'd like the written tutorial please click hereand it will be emailed to you immediately upon payment. The tutorial includes the three templates to finish the box, measurements, supplies list and step by step photos in pdf format.
I also made another version of this unique box using the new Timeless Elegance designer paper. Holy cow; it this paper gorgeous! It is included in the tutorial above. Look:
It looks like a sepia or black and white photo doesn't it?! This designer paper is going to be a huge favorite for many of us; but especially if you like the vintage style. It's in Black, Vanilla and Sahara Sand colors; just soft and lovely.
Here's the front of the box:
I used a few of my brand new catalog products to finish it off. The new Stitched Satin ribbon in Black, the new Bold Butterfly Framelits and of course the pretty Timeless Elegance designer paper. All new favorites of mine!

Welcome to the Control Freaks Blog Hop! This month we're featuring all new products from the brand new Stampin' Up! catalog.
You may have just arrived from our talented Wendy's blogbut don't stop now! You won't want to miss any of it! Click on the icon at the bottom of each post to get to the next blog.
First I want to share a pretty card I made for my friend (and new downline!) Becky for her workshop last weekend. She had a wonderful party with lots of her best stamping friends.
I used the new Wild About Flowers stamp set and two of our new In Colors. Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, and Pink Pirouette with Whisper White. The greeting is from the 'You've Got This' stamp set. I'll be posting a video next week on this card.
When I received the new Cotton Paper assortment in my pre-order my first idea was to make a punched 3d flower with it. I added it to a one of our treat boxes along with our new In Color Lace ribbon and gold 1/8" ribbon.
I used our Medallion punch to punch out 10 flowers from the Watermelon colored Cotton paper This paper is similar to tissue paper but it's strong! It doesn't tear or rip as easily. I poked a hole through the center of all of the punched layers and inserted a brad. Then I started at the top layers and pinched and crimped them tightly. I loosened the pinching as I got further down to the the base of the flower. This is what I got!
I wanted to create a tag with the new 'You're So Sweet' Bundle that includes the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit dies. A photo of my sweet granddaughter Eliza fits perfectly behind the die-cut window. I stamped the tag with Gorgeous Grunge and Watermelon Wonder ink; stamped off first.
I have a video coming up soon showing you a few other Cotton paper flowers with the new Gift Bag punch board so stay tuned!
You won't want to miss Deb Currier'sprojects; you'll see why I love her style!
It's that time again; time for our big annual rummage sale. 38 of us are parting with some of our paper crafting supplies to make room for more!
It's Friday night for my customers and on Saturday it's open to everyone else from 9-3 pm. If you're within driving distance it is worth a road trip to Minot, ND!
First is a note to you long distance folks who would love to be here for the sale. I am so sorry to tease and tempt you! I do like to share and brag a bit about my 'committee' of worker bees though. They volunteer many, many hours of their time to sort and set up all of this. I just have to organize the sellers and they come and take over the huge project and do it all. Am I lucky or what!!!!
I think we have more than ever this year.
We have a lot of fun selling our old and then turning around and buying new.
Again I'll apologize to you long distance customers who would love to be here! And I am sorry but I can not take requests for stamp sets or other products that may or may not be at the sale. I just do not have the time to find and ship them out.
Here are the three cards we're making at my Card Addiction class on the 21st.
Each are so different; you've got a fun and bright birthday card using the Build a Birthday set and Cherry On Top washi tape on the top. On the left is a pretty floral card in the new Watermelon Wonder using the Best Thoughts stamp set with watercolor paper. And last is an eye-catching artistic card using Everything Eleanor and Work of Art sets.
I only have one or two spots left at class this Sunday at 4 pm. It's $10 or free to new stampers and free with a $30 order at class.
I colored this pretty flower onto watercolor paper by using the ink from the lid of my Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush ink pads with my favorite coloring tool; the aqua-painter. To get the ink on the lids you can squeeze the ink pad lightly while it's closed.
My best tip for great water coloring like this is to fill in a petal at a time with a very light color of ink. Then go back in to pick up darker ink and drop bits of color to the areas you want darker. The colored ink spreads evenly and gives a water colored look since the paper was slightly wet from your first pass.
Do you like getting pre-cut card kits where the measuring and cutting is done for you?
I've been offering these card kits to go for my local gals for awhile now and they're loving them! My goal with these kits is to give them easy to make cards they can finish at home quickly using products they already own. I know many people are intimidated by designing and cutting out their own cards so this solves that issue!
I create two cards using the same pieces of card stock but show them that there are a few ways they can finish their cards and that they do not have to use the stamps I did. It's really fun for me and fills a need for them.
I heard from quite a few of you that you would like this option also so I am going to offer it to my online or long distance customers too! You receive 3 kits of each set, or 9 card kits total. The kits include all of the pre-cut card stock pieces and ribbons. It does not include jewels or stamped images. The first and last sets will include pieces large enough to stamp and/or punch images as large as I used. The middle set includes the punched circles as shown.
Here are the three sets of cards this month:
I used Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon here. The patterned paper strip is from the Cherry On Top designer paper stack which is double sided and reversed on the cards. The stamp sets are Birthday Blossoms and You've Got This.
Here I used Night of Navy, Tip Top Taupe with Very Vanilla. The stamps are from Butterfly Wishes and I Think You're Great.
And lastly this is Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Crushed Curry and Tip Top Taupe. The stamps are Happy Birthday Everyone, Papillion Potpourri and Sprinkles of Life. The designer paper is from the Cherry on Top stack.
You have until June 24th to sign up for the kits.
I am sorry but I ran out of product to fill these card kits for June. They will ship out for those who have ordered them at the end of this week. The cost for long distance people is $12.50 which includes shipping. It's $8.00 for local gals for 9 pre-cut kits. Any extra kits are just $8.00 each.
The New Catalog is out and there is lots to love and even more to want. If you have a nice long wish list why not get some of it free? If you're already ordering more than $50 why not bump it up a bit and get lots more the less expensive way? It's a fabulous time to join Stampin' Up! and my Flowerbug's Team!
