Good afternoon! We have been getting lots of downpours with thunder and lightning all day here in Upstate New York. I have been prepping the master bedroom for some fresh paint. It's turning out to be a much more involved project than I had anticipated. So, I thought I would take a break and post something quick to my blog. This cute little box/basket I made for a door prize at one of my recent stamp classes. I cut 2 box #2 dies using my Big Shot and stuck them together (back to back)with some sticky strip. I made the handle using the wide oval punch and then decorated it with the Bella Rose designer series paper. I filled it with some paper shreds, 2
ghirardelli chocolates, 2 incentive stamps and a basic black stampin' spot. This was a big hit and everyone wanted me to pull their name from the door prize bucket! This was a fun and easy project, so give it a try!
Here is the recipe: (all products are Stampin' Up!)
Paper: kraft, riding hood red, kiwi kiss, pink pirouette, whisper white, Bella Rose dsp
Stamps: Lovely Labels
Ink: kiwi kiss
Accessories: Big Shot, Box #2 die, circle punches, scallop circle punch, eyelet border punch, wide oval punch, ribbon
Okay, I've gotta get back to my other work. Thanks for stopping by. See you all soon!

OMG! I can't believe it has been over a month since my last post. I have been overwhelmed with feeling like I have so much to do and no time to do it all. My husband and I took our youngest son, Alex, to England in the middle of May so he could participate in a program where he is studying at Oxford. We spent about a week there and when we got home I wound up being sick for 2 weeks. I still have a little congestion that just keeps hanging on. Of course I am still working on our house, painting one of the 5 bedrooms we have at present. I haven't even been out to my gardens...Anyway, I was getting prepared for my monthly stamp class tomorrow and I realized that I never posted the projects from last months class. Here are some of the projects we did. My class was a Dads and Grads class. All products are Stampin' Up!.
Real quick here with my deets: For the Tool card I stamped the images on brushed silver cardstock and cut them out, I then stamped the handles on chocolate chip cardstock and paper pieced them.
