Good Morning, Stampers!

Check out this fun idea featuring the FREE Sale-A-Bration designer paper - Golden Honey and a little bit of paper scraps and ribbon. A great home decor gift idea for any bee-lover!

I created a simple box from a 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Baisc Black cardstock. Then, I scored it on
all the edges at 1". Finally, I snipped and adhered the flaps to form the box. The great thing about this is that you can make any size box by adjusting the measurements. Easy-peasy!

Paper: Golden Honey, Whisper White Basic Black, Gold Glimmer, Black Foil
Accessories: Detailed Bees dies, Hand Lettered Prose dies, Stitched So Sweetly dies, Basic Black satin ribbon

Control Freaks February Blog Hop - Outside the Box

Hello, Stampers!

Welcome to the Control Freaks February
Blog Hop where we were told to......

Whether you are just starting here, or arriving
this hop is sure to inspire you to think outside the box!

Well, what do you think?? I copied the lightbox idea! These were
so fun to make. What I love most is, there are so many possibilites
to create one-of-a-kind personalized messages!

I added a little Smoky Slate sponging just around the edges 
of the Whisper White panels.
Then, I took the light So Saffron Stampin' Blends
and followed along the edges to give the illusion
of an illuminated lightbox. I will definitely be making
more of these - they are so much fun!

Ink: Smoky Slate
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Basic Black
Accessories: Light So Saffron Stampin' Blends, Sponge, Stitched Stars dies, Hand-Lettered
Prose dies, Balloon Bouquet punch
