Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies from Stampin’ Up! – A Thank You Gift

Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies from Stampin’ Up!  – A Thank You Gift

It seems like such a long time ago, that I held a kit card class on a Saturday morning, but it was only about a month ago in reality. There were only a few of us but we had a great time chatting and crafting. I made the ladies a thank you gift for taking the class.

I love the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies from Stampin’ Up! It’s a keeper that’s for sure. I’ve been using it a lot, as you may have noticed, if you follow my blog. I’ve not even gotten around to any of the Christmas project ideas I have for it yet either! Watch this space! 🙂

Would you believe it’s the first time I’ve used the Corrugated Paper, even though it was on my first order in July when the annual catalogue went live? Oh and the Cotton Paper I used to make the flower, I bought on the preorder in June! Thinking about it, there’s a few other bits and bobs I have bought but never used. Do you do that? I don’t think I’m the only one who does that… am I? Noooo surely not! 🙂

I love the pop of colour the flower brings to the project!

Stampin’ Up! Handmade Gift and Card

Handmade gift and card using Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper, Inks and Stamps!

Good morning peeps, another scorcher here in London today. A complete contrast to yesterday with the rain – very typical that it happened to be on the day my youngest and I bunked off and spent the day at Legoland with our friends. The two boys were dizzy with excitement  and a little hard to keep from running riot and rampaging through the park! They had a great day though. We won’t be going in the summer holidays though as my son does not do queues – oh no not in the slightest!

Anyways, on to today’s project. I love, love, love how this turned out. Don’t look too closely as it’s not perfect as this was the first time I’ve done this. It is a handmade gift, for my friend’s little girl, for her birthday this week.

I bought some cardboard letters from a local craft shop and covered them with the Subtles DSP stack. At first I was going to alternate Spotty then Stripey patterns only in Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette but decided I would mix the spots and stripes on each letter and also use other colours. I am really pleased with how it turned out.

So now all my friends know what to expect as gifts for their children’s next birthdays or Christmas (whichever is first)! Sorry folks! x

For the card I decided to CASE the catalogue, as I liked this card so much. I substituted some elements for what I had available, but it’s very close to the original.
