4 Cs and a bit of Sugar
It was a cold wet day here in Leeds today, hope the weather was better for you.
A BIG HELLO to Georgina, a lovely new follower, thank you for joining us.
I've been wanting to make this gift box for quite a while but couldn't find the time.
As Gracie started nursery this week i've got every morning now to play!!!
There are a few challenges this will fit into 4 of them starting with 'C' hence the title.
Cupcake Craft ~ Don't be Square, anything but a square card
A Spoonful of Sugar ~ 3D something
Crafty Creations ~ Make your own paper
Cute Card Thursday ~ Make your own
Charisma Cards ~ Girly with Flowers on but not just on your dp
Papertake Weekly ~ Do something new that you haven't done before
Paperplay Challenges ~ Pretty Pastels
It started as a digital download template from My Time Made Easy designed and owned by Lauren Meader. Check out her site they do more than just templates.
This box is from the Pretty Packaging and is called Card Catch All.
It's really easy to make and went together in no time at all.
I made a note book using my Bind it All, first project I have made and a first for using the template.
That is the Papertake challenge.
The lilac card is from The Paper Mill in York, white card from my stash. I stamped the background with Magenta swirl K0537 from Whichcraftuk and lulu lavender ink by momento.
The sides and back are done in the same way and decorated with faux pearls, sparkling Swarovski crystals and a sakura stardust pen. The photo doesn't really show how sparkly it is!!
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment stamps by Stampin' Up oval all and curvy verses sets from Victoria
There is also an add on template to make cards and envelopes to match and category cards, called Pretty Pieces cut file
I didn't decorate them just tied them together with ribbon from my stash.
Look out for more of these as they are really gorgeous and I have others to try watch this space.
Will be posting more from now on so hope you'll come a long for the ride.
thanks for stopping by
Love Cherie //*.*\\
