Finally, There's Something to Share

Happy Sunday to you all! It feels like forever since I've had time to create and post something. Day camp was such fun but I'll talk about that and give you some pictures in another post. Today I finished a project that I started several weeks ago. It was a challenge project over at the Making Greeting Cards Yahoo Group. We could make anything but a card. Okay I cheated slightly. There are cards in this project but I don;t think anyone will complain too much.

I made a staionery box that I found on Splitcoaststampers. They used heavy double sided card stock. I didn't have any, so I used regular card stock and covered it with designer paper. The dp I used is from Target's $1 Spot. It was a package of birthday paper but these particular sheets weren't geared so much toward birthday.

When you take the lid off the box you see this. The box has several compartments. The empty compartment in the lower right is for stamps. I forgot to add them before I took the picture. There's a little notebook and a pen add. The top pocket has regular A2 size cards and envelopes. The left pocket has tags and the right pocket has 3x3 inch cards and envelopes.

These are the four cards I made for the regular A2 size cards. I used Gina K's Enjoy the Sunshine stamp kit for the sentiments and images.

The tags are very simple. I used a Quikcutz die to cut the tags and the flowers are punched with Stampin' Up's Boho Blossoms and tacked together with a brad. The ribbon is from Michael's.

The 3x3 cards are similar to the A2 size cards. Instead of an image I added the Boho Blossom flowers and a sentiment. This was great fun to make. I do wish I could have kept at it instead of stringing it out so long. But life got in the way.

Now that day camp is finished I hope to get back to a little more creating. I have a bunch of birthday cards to send so I really need to make some cards this week. Hope all of you are surviving the weather. It's steamy here; too hot to be out, IMHO! Thanks for stopping by. Hope you all have a wonderful start to your new week. I'm headed back to work. Take care.

Inky hugs,
