So Many Thanks

Morning all, I'm very excited today. I have a Sale-A-Bration Open House planned for this afternoon and can't wait to get crafting with new friends and old (not that they are old!!)

This is the final weekend of the gorgeous Sale-A-Bration sets (sob sob). They are just divine and I love them.

Do you want to get your hands on one of these sets before they disappear??

Well you only have until Monday, then they are gone - no longer available to order. Don't miss out, email me today.

Do you order 12x12 papers? Do you throw away the extra thick packing sheet at the back? Then STOP!! Don't discard this because look what it can make............

A wonderful gift box. I used the packing sheet and have decorated it up. This box measures
17.5 cm x 15.5 cm and is 3.5 cm deep.

Now this is going to be for one lucky person who comes to my Open House today. I can't show you what's inside - but I guarantee they won't be disappointed!!!!

The box is mat and layered with Basic Black card stock & Love Notes DSP. A bit of Cherry Cobbler to mount the sentiment on, which is coloured in with (yes you guessed it) Stampin Write Markers and no gift would be complete without a bit of bling.

I am, as they say up North, "a bit chuffed" with how this turned out :-) Although hubby was less pleased. I was still crafting away late last night and the bed was nowhere to be seen - I had hid it under my craft stash!!

Right must dash and clean up ready for this afternoon. Will let you know who the lucky winner was and how the day went.

Thanks for stopping by



  1. Gorgeous box...will certainly try it, never thought of using the packaging as well!! hope the open house went well Karyn xx

  2. What a brilliant idea for a sturdy box! And it's beautifully decorated too - I'm not surprised you were 'a bit chuffed' with it! Just going to the next post to see how the day went...
