Oh Monday why must you be so mean! LOL! Nah, it actually wasn’t too bad for a Monday. Work was the usual crazy and when I got to my parents for dinner my brother, his wife and the baby were there. Oh, and my child was there too! Little Daniel is a cutie, I love his hair and he smiles for me all the time! I posted a picture of him to Instagram last night and it was over on the right on the feed on my blog but for those of you that missed it here he is in all his cuteness!
And if you look at the pictures in the background they are of Taylor when she was little, she was a cutie too, oh alright she still is!
Before I get to today’s post I was over on Mary Fish’s blog yesterday and I noticed that her supply list was quite neat and cool looking. At the end it said try Stampin’ Buddy free. I clicked on the link and came to a very non-descript page with Demo ID and Product Number spaces. I typed them in and it created a clickable supply list. I’m trying it out and you’ll have to let me know what you think of it!
Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our Boxes, Bags and Baskets challenge. I haven’t made a box in a long time so I was quite happy to get to work! My box is made from Wisteria Wonder and Calypso Coral Card Stock. I used my Simply Scored, Paper Snips and Sticky Strip to assemble it. The belly band is a piece of Whisper White and on top is a piece of Wisteria Wonder that I punched out with the Curly Label Punch. I finally got to use my Spiral Flower Bigz Die with some Calypso Coral. The flower is quite easy to make, a run through the Big Shot, some rolling and a bit of hot glue and done! The Easter egg is from the Eggstra Spectacular Stamp Set and is stamped in Wisteria Wonder and punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. Some “Vintage” Wisteria Wonder Bakers Twine holds it in place. I couldn’t just have the box, it needed a little card too. The card is a piece of Whisper White Card Stock with a piece of Calypso Coral embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. The stamp is also from the Eggstra Spectacular Stamp Set and is stamped in Wisteria Wonder and also punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. My little flowers are Wisteria Wonder punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with some Basic Jewels Pearls in the middles. The box would make a great place to put some jelly beans which I would have done but I finished the bag the other night! LOL! I hope that you enjoyed my project for the SUO Challenges Boxes and Bags challenge. Head on over to the blog to see what my fellow Design Team members have done and enter your project in the gallery for us to see! I hope that you all have a great Tuesday and thank you, as always, for coming by! 🙂
