I have so many new things to show you that I am resulting to bullet point to organise this blog!!!! I haven’t blogged for a while so I’ve built up quite a little backlog of projects I’d like to share with you!
- More Autumn Harvest Cards, Candle Wraps and Scrapbooking
- Dazzle You with Razzleberry
- Lots of Bots Party Cards, Gift Box or Birthday Favour Box
So to get started… Here is my favourite of the Autumn Harvest Candle Wraps I have created…
and I am hoping My Mum doesn’t check out this post – here is the Mother’s Day card I have made for her…
And a Scrapbook Page:
I love the layering effect of all of these fabulous coordinating papers… Am I ever going to tire of this colour palette? I just love it so much!
General Project Recipe

And Now for those of you who haven’t been introduced to the dazzling properties of our Rich Razzleberry Colour…
This basket is so easy to make and is adapted from a basic one square favour box I have used for the Lots of Bots Party Favour coming up so keep scrolling if you are interested to find out the details…
Isn’t this THANKS Embosslit just gorgeous? Again using my baby Big Shot…
This card features the beautiful new Very Vintage Stampin Around Wheel from the AWM – I’ve rolled onto Opulent Orchid in Razzleberry Ink. For the flower I have rolled onto Kraft and one layer of Opulent Orchid to create the coordinated feel. Then I have stamped the large bloom from the Embrace Life stamp set to make the Kraft “DSP”. Don’t these colours look great together?
And using my Embrace Life Stamp set (I find this goes really well with the vintage feel):
For this one, my friend sentiment is from the Simply Said stampset and I find it SOOOOOO true… I also really lovel the whimsical font of this sentiment…
And now for our beautiful new MELON MAMBO:
Combined here with the Pony Party stampset – HOW CUTE IS THIS??? Oh to have given birth to some pink ones…(sigh)
This stamp set gives you the ability to build your own scene – a party pony, unicorn etc and it has lovely little accent stamps like the grass, flowers, butterflies, clouds, stars etc – it really is great fun and a must for birthday cards for little girls!!! Ive created a really simple favour box here for a birthday party – a basic grid with each corner square cut out – if you are interested, just let me know and I can post the template for you.
The button you can see and the base card colour is our beautiful new Melon Mambo – it woul dlook even cuter with the matching melon polkadot but i had to settle with the Rich Razzleberry – still looks great though!
And more Melon Mambo for a cut Baby Card using my Two Step Bird Punch:
I’ve used the sentiment from the Best Yet Hostess Stampset – I rarely stamp without it these days!
OK – next my favourite Boys stamp of the moment – Lots of Bots:
I have created a Birthday card and Gift Box, as well as a smaller Party favour Box – I plan on using this for Laurenz’s 6th birthdya coming up and my invitation will feature the Robot stamp too – just need to order the Please come invite stamp set so keep your eyes out for that post!
My colour scheme is Yoyo Yellow, Tangerine tango and Taken with Teal. I have used Stampin Pastels and Blender Pens to colour my images.
Gift Box – this uses an entire piece of 12×12 card
Smaller Party Favour Box – this is created from a 21cm x 21cm square (cut from A4)
Birthday Card 1
Square Gift Card
Now did I mention that these are my first foray into Clear Mount Stamps? I only needed 4 small acrylic block sizes for this stampset and beauty is that every stamp set I purchase from now on will cost less as I have already invested in these acrylic blocks!
The little nuts and bolts are a small stamp which I have repeat stamped turning slightly each time and it looks like a wheel doesnt it? I love it!
Now are you ready to see how easy it is to make these boxes?
This is not a printable template – just an indication for measurements and cut lines. One you have scored your grid and cut along the 4 cutlines, you can fold it all the way up for a square box, or fold it to your desired angle and secure with a staple for an angled favour box like I have made. A great tip for quick results with the least “fuss” is to angle the sides and place your handle on the inside – securing all with one staple per side – yes just one staple holds each side and the handle together!!!!
I am going to be conducting a workshop for birthday favours in May at my lovely friend Trishy’s house. If you and your friends would like to learn how to make these favour boxes, why not book your own workshop? Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gosh that was quite a parade of projects wasn’t it? I will be back next week with a feature on the Fox and Friends Clear Mount stampset – so be sure to pop back then!
Happy Anzac Day Long Weekend!
