Enjoy the Beauty of the Season Cute gift Box. number 25 of #100things

Happy Sunday Everyone,

I hope you have had a great weekend and have some exciting plans for today. I will mostly be hidden away in the craft room. Dave is an absolute Golf Geek, and it's the last day of the Ryder Cup so he will be glued to the TV for most of the day.... perfect chance for me to craft. Hoping to get some projects all ready for next week for you all.

Today I have this really cute Christmas Box. I wanted to keep this simple and unfussy without using a heap of supplies.

Take a piece of Real Red cardstock that measures 8" x 6". Score on the long side with full scores at 1", 2 3/4", 4  1/2"  & 6 1/2". Now part score at the 1 7/8" & 5 3/8". So, score down at these two measurements to approx. 3" mark, this will help the sides fold in neater and give you that crisp triangular close. Score on the short side at 4 1/2".

Fold a burnish all the full score lines with your bone folder, gently tease around the part scores to create the shape above.

Add two DSP panels using the Under the Mistletoe paper which you have cut at 4 1/4" x 1 1/2", adhere and below then cut away so you are left with the following shape.

Add liquid glue to the flap and adhere to the opposite side, you may have to hold it a second or two until the glue grips!

Fold in the base flaps and again using liquid glue stick them all together, now the base flaps don't fully cover each other, so don't be alarmed if they look short. Once all glued together, it will be sturdy enough to hold all sorts of goodies.

Finally stamp the sentiment onto a scrap of whisper white that measures 2 x 1 1/4" and then layer onto a piece of old olive that's 1/4" larger. Add this to the box with dimensionals and close the top with a gold library clip.

Daisy Delight Thank You Notecard. Number 24 #100things

Hiya Everyone,

Today I have another project using the Daisy Delight Stamp Set, I wanted to show how versatile it is. This card is a complete contrast to the cards I made yesterday.

I have a super quick and simple card which I have case'd from the Annual Catalogue. Usually I follow the 'Copy And Selectively Edit' terminology, but I loved the style and the colours so much, mine is like for like.

This is one of the designs I used to pop into my new catalogue packs I sent out at the beginning of the Month.

I loved the speed in which these came together, making them Ideal to batch make, and by using the notecards, it minimises the time spent as the card bases are all ready to go.

Take a whisper white notecard and stamp the thank you sentiment towards the right hand side. I thought the colour was too bright fully stamped, so I stamped off first.

Next, stamps a daisy in sahara sand, again I stamped off to give a lighter shade to the side of the sentiment, then on a scrap stamp the daisy again. Punch out the daisy and pop to one side.

Stamp a leaf outline in between the petals,once on the right hand side and one on the left then bring n a post it not or masking paper and stamp the image on there, then cut out. Make sure if you re using a post it you stamp over the sticky.

Take this mask and cover the leaf outline you stamped on the right hand side.

Ink up the outline again and stamp a leaf next to the masked one, overlap it slightly, like this:-

Remove the masking take and then add the solid image to the inside of the leave, again I stamped off.

Add the centre to the daisy punch out you have with the Old Olive and then add to the card using a glue dot. Off set the petals to give  fuller flower head.

In Colour Daisy Thank You cards and Box. Number 23 of #100things

Hello Everyone

Happy Friday, I hope you are all ready for the weekend and have some great things planned.

Now, today my project is a little longer than most, and that's for a good reason - we are technically we are doing two projects in one.

I have this awesome Thank You box which hold five 4" notecards and envelopes - perfect for 1 each of our beautiful in colours for 2018-2020. The box measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" x 1 1/2" so its a great size for all sorts of goodies if you didn't want t pop cards in.


Create a card base from a piece of card stock that measures 4"x8" scored at 4".  for each card cut two pieces of whisper white that measure 3 1/2" x 3 1/2". Layer one piece inside the card.  Take the second piece and place it in your simply scored. Add four score lines, rotate 90 degrees clockwise and do the same again, to create the design below:-

Stamp the thank you sentiment in the top righthand corner and then glue the panel to the card base.

On a piece of coordinating cardstock, stamp the daisy stamp twice in the same colour ink and punch out using the daisy punch, offset layer these together to get  full flower head and add to the card over where your score lines meet. Add a faceted gem to the centre.

Repeat this process and create a card in each of the in colours.


First of all create a panel exactly like you created the card front but on a piece of whisper white and then put to one side.

Take a piece of cardstock that measures 8 1/4" x 12" and score on the long side at 1/2",  4 3/4", 6 1/4" & 10 1/2" then on the short side at 1 1/2", 5 3/4" & 7 1/4". Fold and burnish all the lines well and then cut away the various sections to create this shape. 

Add a blueberry bushel piece of cardstock at measures 3 5/8" x 3 5/8" to the right hand panel and then adhere the thank you panel you created earlier. Take the 3/4" circle punch and place a small notch in this panel also.

Run tear and tape over the flap and adhere to the opposite side, fold in the flaps at the bottom to create your base.

You will need to carefully wedge slightly into the flap at the top, I made a small diagonal cut and made sure it was even at both sides. this just helped the lid close flush. 

Now you just need to fill the box with the cards and envelopes and you are done!

Share What You Love Fun Fold Card with a Stand. Number 22 of #100things

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe it is Thursday already? Saying that I start my working week on Tuesday this week!! hahaha.

This weeks DT Challenge on Stampin For All is Full Folds and I remembered watching a tutorial on a card with a stand so today I have a card, that was inspired by a YouTube video from Scrimping Mommy.

Amanda Charlesworth is a very talented crafter who continues to create amazing Projects, and the one I have chosen to CASE today is no exception.

Here's the link for Amanda's Video Card With a Stand - Lily Pad Lake  and here's my interpretation:-


Old Olive Card Stock

1pc - 8 1/4" x 6"

Share What You Love Designer Series Paper
2pc - 3 3/4" x 5 3/4"

Whisper White Card Stock
1pc - 3 3/4" x 5 3/4"

Take the piece old olive and score at 4 1/8". Then in you trimmer line up your card along the track as below.

Trim a diagonal line from one corner to the edge of the score line at the top of the card, repeat on both sides and you will be left with this shape:-

Using the same method, cut the share what you love DSP into triangles as well as the whips white cardstock. So you have the shapes below:-

Layer these triangles onto the Old Olive cardstock. Place all the DSP triangle on the front, and add the whisper white to the to central triangles on the back - this will give you somewhere to write your message.

Using a ruler, place a small pencil mark at the two inch mark running up the diagonal edge from the bottom on both sides. Create a small slit either side - this will provide a ledge in which the front piece can sit.

Angle the two loose triangle to create the shape as displayed in the top photo. Add a little bit of adhesive to keep the two triangle together. It will give them a bit more strength and it will be a little more sturdy.

Bring in your big shot and using the stitched shape framelits cut an old olive square with the second largest die and a whisper white square with the next size down.

Stamp the sentiment onto the whisper white square positioned as a diamond, then adhere this to the old olive square. add this to the centre of the card.

To finish it off I fussy cut a few flowers and leaves and adhered these to the sentiment panel.
