English Garden Pillow Boxes

HB Square Pillow Box

HB Blushing Bride Pillow Box

I LOVE the new Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies in the Holiday Catalog.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will be a product that carries over into the Annual Catalog.  It is so easy to make this pillow box and it’s very roomy inside.

I didn’t decorate the front too much as I feel the paper is the star of the show (English Garden Designer Series Paper).  It is a little hard to tell in the pictures above but when they are side by side you can see that they look a little bit different in size.  The ribbon on the blue one doesn’t hold the box shut, you can open the ends and leave the ribbon on.  The ribbon goes around the ends on the pink one and would need to be removed to open the box.  I might do this if I was worried that the box might open.

Stay tuned in the next few days and I’ll have a video showing you how I created my pillow box.  Here’s a PDF that includes a picture of the project and all of the supplies needed for both boxes that you can print or save for future reference:  Happy Birthday Pillow Box Card Recipe

HB Gift Card inside

I’m going to be giving some gift cards very soon so I thought I’d share some gift card holders with you.  I think I’m pretty easy to shop for because I LOVE gift cards!  It’s so fun to go shopping with your gift cards in hand (whether it’s online or in a store).  Guilt free shopping!!!

All of the holders are made using Bohemian DSP except for the one with the bees.  That paper is from the English Garden DSP.  My sentiments are from the same stamp set – Circle of Spring.

I’ll have a video later this week for this project!

Woohoo for You

As I’m writing this post, it is 5:00 pm and 108 degrees outside.  UGH.  It does get very hot where I live in California but we usually don’t hit three digits.   California is going through a severe drought and in my area we are only allowed to water our lawns twice a week.  Our beautiful lawn isn’t faring very well and this extremely hot weather isn’t helping. Tomorrow it is supposed to cool down to 106. Double UGH.  I keep hoping we will get some rain.  We need it so badly.

Onto my card for today.  I hope I’m not boring you with my Pinwheel cards.  I needed a card for a virtual swap and this is what I chose to create.  The paper is from the DSP English Garden and the sentiment comes from the new stamp set, All Boxed Up.  I stamped the flower on the inside in Crushed Curry with the stamp set Garden in Bloom.

English Garden Pinwheel

Feeling Special Pinwheel Card

Feeling Special Pinwheel Inside

I have another Pinwheel card today.  These cards are very addicting and it’s hard to stop at one! The one major difference between today’s card and the one from the other day is that I didn’t use a belly band.  Instead I chose to adhere my sentiment to the scallop circle and attach it to one of the flaps.  You do need to be careful when attaching it to the card so that it can still be opened easily.  I prefer this way but it could be difficult for the recipient to fold it back together.

For the inside I used a flower from the stamp set Garden in Bloom.  I chose not to use the outline stamp but I did use it for the butterfly on the front. I finished it up with several rhinestones on the butterfly!

There’s a picture and video tutorial over on Splitcoaststampers.  You can view it here.  Any questions, please let me know!

Online Stamp Club Sneak Peek

For You With Love

For You With Love

Today’s project is a very quick and easy card made with the Envelope Punch Board.  The pretty DSP is called English Garden and I used my favorite ribbon in the catalog – Delightful Dijon Dotted Lace Trim.

It actually isn’t necessary to use an envelope but if you want, it will fit snugly into one of our medium envelopes!  When you add ribbon, it holds the card together which makes it very easy to slip a gift card inside.

inside Just for You

If you already own an Envelope Punch Board, my directions will make sense to you.  If you don’t own one but would like to see a video tutorial, please email me and I’d be happy to do it!

1.  Cut your DSP to 6-7/8″ x 6-7/8″.

2.  Line your paper up to the 3-1/2″ mark, punch and score.

3. Turn your paper to the next side but line up the start line with the score line you just made, punch and score.

4.  Repeat step 3 with the two remaining sides.

Inside I used a piece of Crumb Cake that measures 4″ x 4″.  The Whisper White piece measures 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″.
