Welcome to the March Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop. You may be visiting me after stopping by Leonie Stuart’s site and seeing her beautiful project or a regular subscriber to my blog. Whatever the case, I am so glad you are here to take a look at what I’ve made.
Cardmaking comes naturally to me. 3D projects I do have to think a bit more for as it’s not something I create regularly. What to create for this hop was a challenge. Pinterest always provides inspiration. After scouring through Easter baskets, I decided on a box!
This is no ordinary box.
It’s a cute stationery box which I couldn’t resist as I just love stationery.
I started by following a tutorial from StampARTic but I changed and added things as I went. I’ve had lots of fun creating everything to go in it as well.
It’s filled with a note pad, note cards, gift tags, regular sized cards and a little pocket for stamps (make a card, send a card!). You could even put a pen in one of those pockets.
Regular sized cards and gift tags
I will get the measurements out for this early next week and my newsletter next week will be having a PDF for this project.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. I hope you have enjoyed this fun project and look forward to you visiting back here soon.

Day 24 of the #30DayChristmasCardMaking Challenge brought along the colour combination of Old Olive, Purple Pumpkin and Rich Razzleberry. Although, together it’s a lovely combination, it wasn’t the regular Christmas colours one would put together. It actually has a bit of an autumn look to it. So the challenge was to make this card look Christmasy.
I initially wanted to use the bow from the Gift Wrap bundle to create a multi-coloured bow but then decided to keep it simple and elegant with some gold heat embossing. Then I coloured it in Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends. The gold in the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP ties in with the heat embossing and adds the Old Olive element to this card.
The stars were stamped in Pumpkin Pie with the embellishments coloured with Stampin’ Blends to coordinate.

Day 18 of the #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge is a Colour Challenge using Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron and Sahara Sand. A scarf and beanie in these colours seemed festive so I chose the Snowman Season stamp set for my card.
This snowman is such a happy chap and even with minimal colouring, he really creates a cheerful card. I added some Shimmery Crystal Effects for the snow. Once applied, this needs to be left to dry so this is best done at the end. The Sahara Sand matte label has been cut in half for layering.
The Gold detailed Mint Macaron paper is from the Ornate Garden DSP and it adds a lovely festive touch to this card. Some elements from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card Pack in Cherry Cobbler bring this colour palette together. The Poppy Parade buttons were coloured with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to coordinate with the card.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend.
