CTC 128 – Favourite Kit

Hi everyone.  I seemed to have been MIA the past couple of weeks as I prepared for the Picture to Page show in Pakenham.  But I am back this week for another awesome CTC Challenge!  This week we get to CASE our Favourite Kit from any Catalogue!

I do have a couple of favourite kits in the catalogue – especially the Watercolour Wishes Card Kit. But for todays hop – I decided to try something a little different.  I have always liked the Perfectly Wrapped Kit on page 159 in the current Annual Catalogue, but it was one of those kits I never actually got around to purchasing!

I thought it was such a bright fun kit, and just a bit different to our usual kits with all its fun packaging.  I had so much fun creating for this challenge!  I had never thought to CASE a kit before!

So today, being Mother’s Day in Australia, I thought all that cute packaging may just come in handy for some lovely little gifts!

I used the Grateful Bunch stamp set and Blossom Bunch Punch to base my mini kit around.  I am just a bit sad this set is retiring! I loved the lace and the triple flowers that you could layer together were so quick and easily … not to mention that is my most favourite butterfly …. sob…

Anyway – here is what I came up with!

CTC 128 Favourite Kit Projects by Mel Pagano at My Paper Oasis using Stampin' Up! Grateful Bunch and Blooms and Bliss DSP

I created the gift bag by using our Kraft Tag a Bags (also retiring).  I simply stamped the bag, folded the base and adhered the corners underneath to create an open bag.

The Clear Tiny Treat Box was simply decorated with some hand stamped Whisper White card, scored and folded for inside the box, with a belly band wrapped around and a cluster of flowers popped on the top.

And instead of creating the cello bags – I CASEd the design and turned it into a card to suit the occasion!

The sentiments from this suite really do go well with the Mother’s Day theme.  I hope that where ever you are today, and whom ever you consider your ‘babies’, that you are having an amazing day! Every woman is fabulous and deserves to be treated special xx

Don’t forget – you can play along too by simply adding your photo to the CTC 128 album on our Facebook page HERE.

Now its time to pop around to see what the rest of the crew have created for you.

Next on the hop is the amazing Julia Quinn!

Happy Stamping!!!

Gift Box Punch Board for On Stage Roomie Gifts

Hi everyone.

I was back on Sunday Night for a Stamp It Sunday live Facebook video again!

It took LOTS of cups of tea to recover from the fun of our Stampin’ Up! 2016 On Stage Live Event from the 3-6th of November, but it was sooooo much fun!  There are lots of new goodies that I am going to enjoy sharing with you all over the coming weeks to get you creating!

The weather was gorgeous the entire time. And Southbank was buzzing in the evenings!

So for my Stamp It Sunday Video I decided to show you the pillow gifts I made for my room mates!

I had been to LUSH to source something to help the girls relax, unwind and invigorate themselves ready for the new catalogue and next year.  LUSH have the most amazing bath products.  I had come across one called ‘Dragon’s Egg’ in the past and it smelt amazing, all the things I just mentioned for the girls rolled into one delicious bath bomb! So I grabbed a few of those and headed off to my craft room, trusting that my punch boards would help me package these beauties just right!

So out came the trusty Gift Box Punch Board. I honestly have to say that I love how simple it is to create your own special packaging with these Punch Boards. A simple Belly Band and some ribbon later, and our bath bomb was all set to deliver!

Gift Box Punch Board Pillow Gifts for roomies 2016 On Stage Stampin Up event, by My Paper Oasis. Gift Box Punch Board, gift packaging, gift boxes, simple packaging, boxes for bath bombs.

The Irresistibly Floral Speciality DSP can be teamed with any colour Designer Paper, but I chose Blooms and Bliss for my Belly Band, a bit of Coordinating Sweet Sugarplum ribbon and a tag finished it all off beautifully. So simple – So elegant! And those Stitched Framelits set EVERYTHING off so well! They are a must for every craft room!

Here are the measurements so you can Make It To –

My gift box is a 10″ x 10″ piece of DSP to make the 3.25 x 3.25 x 3.25 box as written on the Punch Board.

The belly band is made my cutting 2 pieces of DSP 1 3/4″ x 7″ and scoring them both at 1/2″, 2 1/4″ and 5 1/2″.

Join the pieces along the 1/2″ end – joining right sides together. Punch the opposite end of both of the Belly Band pieces using the scallop tag topper punch.  Wrap around your box and secure with ribbon.

Take a look at the video at My Paper Oasis You Tube Channel to watch how its done.

Happy Crafting everyone
