Luxury Box using Forever Greenery Suite from Stampin’ UP!

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s project is inspired by Scrimpin’ Mommy – a UK Demonstrator. I was in the mood to do a 3D project with a bit of a challenge and came across the video for this really sturdy and attractive gift box.

While Scrimpin’ Mommy’s sample has a Christmas theme I chose to use the Forever Greenery Suite of products, along with upcycling the chip board that comes with the metallic foil sheets.

Center-Step Card with Prized Peony Suite ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I so love fancy/fun fold cards, even after nearly 10 years as a demonstrator I still am in awe on what you can do with a piece of card stock!! Center-Step cards have been around for a considerable while but I think it is always nice to dust it off and update it with new colors and products.

The Peony Garden Suite of products have been very popular since its release in June, I have used the 3D peony as the as my focal point and paired it with Daffodil Delight and Cinnamon Cider Card.

You will have either arrived from Heike’s  post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME.  This month we have a choice of theme Halloween or Autumn  ~ I have chosen Halloween. As an expat Brit, it is a holiday that was not particularly popular when I left nearly 19 years ago, but it was the first holiday that we experienced when we arrived in October of 2001 and I soon learned how popular it is here in the States!!

Once again I have chosen to use a 12 x 12 page – mainly because Stampin’ UP! has 12 x 12 card stock in all its colors which gives me a fantastic choice.
