Box Card - English Garden by Stampin' Up!


Hello and thanks for stopping by

Today I have a box card to share, I have made this type of card so many times and I think they are brilliant to add a gift card or even some money as it will stay secure in the box

The Designer Paper is retiring soon ..... boo hoo .... I've not used it enough but that's nothing new for me as I don't use my paper enough even though I keep telling myself to......


Here it is open and the belly band on the side

I used the matching Stamp Set Garden In Bloom for the inside and the outside sentiment is also a retiring stamp set You're Lovely - I think (I've already set my set aside)


Hope you get to create today

Until next time ......

Split Top Box - Wonderful Wreath Framelits

Happy Monday

Last week on Splitcoaststampers there was a tutorial for this Split Top Box to hold A2 Cards

Well as I'm here in the UK I wanted to make the box to fit our A6 cards so did some sums (maths) and created this one


I used the Wonderful Wreath for the top and added a die cut using the Flower Fair die and stamped the sentiment from Endless Thanks


Here is the box open, now to set out and add some cards


Hope you get to create one for yourself

Until next time ...........

Double Pleated Card and The Queen


Happy Thursday and Happy Birthday to ME, tee hee

Happy Birthday to Her Majesty the Queen too, when I was younger my Dad used to take me out on my Birthday if it fell on a weekend and we used to walk to wherever he took me and generally that was the local Social Club.  On the way we used to walk past a building that flew the flag for the Queen's Birthday but Dad told me it was for me, I always believed him.  Memories are just the best of when I was younger and of my Dad.

Too many years to think about and wish I was 26 again (that was my favourite year)

Anyway onto today's card

A couple of weeks ago I made this pleated fold card

I have made the one sided pleat and thought I would have a go at a double one


Thanks for looking and have a lovely day!

Until next time ........

Stampin' Up! Bird Punch and Wax Resist



Well as we found out the Bird Builder Punch is leaving this current catalogue I thought I would share a couple of cards I made recently

I used some wax paper and the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder and sponged over the first piece using Crumb Cake and the other with Pool Party

The Black Ribbon is also retiring 

I'm happy to say the Gold Metallic Doilies are staying as is the embossing folder

The butterfly is from Papillion Potpouri and that's staying too


Thanks for stopping by and just click over there on the top right or my Peg signature below to go and see the latest list (it changes daily)

I used the Large Number Framelits from Stampin' Up! cut out from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and all the little flowers (some stamped with Pictogram Punches Stamp Set) punched using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack

Had to share the #I'mBringingBirthdaysBack Stamp Set as we all need to send more cards
