Happy Monday my sweet dumplings. Here’s hoping it’s not another manic Monday. Cheesy right? Definitely! Anywho today’s blog post title comes to you from the Framelits Dies set I used, the Lots to Love Box set. I use three of the dies to make today’s project, an adorable box that can be filled with candy or a slender bangle bracelet. Well a bracelet I could wear, lol. I think it would hold a pair of earrings easily. I used Fast Fuse adhesive to put the box together. I used two different papers to make the box, both are from the Painted with Love suite. The top of the box was made using the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. The gold foiling on it is simply gorgeous. I use a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock from the Painted with Love cardstock pack to make the bottom of the box. I cut out a heart from the dsp and using the banner die from the set I cut out two banners, one Whisper White and the other in Calypso Coral. After stamping the sentiment from the Sure Do Love You stamp set on the Whisper White banner in Berry Burst ink I layered it on the Calypso Coral banner. I attached the resulting banner to the dsp heart with Multi-Purpose liquid glue. Then I adhered the resulting “embellishment” to the box using Stampin’ dimensionals. I love the resulting project and I’m sure you’ll like it too.
There are only 13 days left to get a gift by simply buying products you love or getting a prepaid subscription to Paper Pumpkin. That’s right my sweet dumplings Sale-a-Bration ends in just 13 days, roughly two weeks. I know I’ve been waiting to place an order so I could get several items from Level 1 or one from Level 2 and another from Level 1. It’s all part of a plan for me, why haven’t you placed your order yet? I’m putting a link below where you can access the Annual catalog, the Occasions catalog and all things Sale-a-Bration by way of my Online Store. You can browse, choose and order all in one place. You can thank me later.
I posted pictures of the beautiful vintagey cards from the awesome March Paper Pumpkin kit. I have a feeling April and May are going to be even better but if you dilly dally like you did with the March kit you’re going to miss out on the 50% off your first two kits deal. I can tell you now all the “Please Miss Hammie, please” won’t get you that deal if you sit on your hands and don’t subscribe. Truly cancelling it if you don’t enjoy it is probably easier than signing up, lol.
Finally, I can only say how great it is to be an Independent Stampin’ Up Demonstrator before I begin to sound insincere. I’ve admitted I joined for the discount, no shame in my game. However I’ve gotten so much more out of it than products. Here’s something I don’t think I’ve shared you. If you sign up now you basically have until the end of July to decide if being a demonstrator works for you. If you feel like “I thought this was right for me, but it isn’t” you send an email and it’s over. You end up with $125.00 worth of products for only $99.00 and two additional stamp sets and there’s no limit on how expensive those sets can be. There are a couple, that if you picked them would total over $100.00. Also remember there’s no shipping and handling on your kit. If you decide to place a few orders between now and July you get a 20% discount on those. Trust me joining now is a win win. As always there will be a link below where you can sign up. Well my sweet ones that’s it for me today. Make sure to come back on Wednesday for the InKing Royalty March Blog Hop. We’re going to be Walking in Sunshine. So for now my dumplings . . .
