Elegant Soiree Tissue Box Cover

I was so happy with how my Blueberry Crisp Tissue Box Cover turned out I decided I’d make another one for a gift I needed. Instead of making it the same though I chose to use the Elegant Soiree DSP along with the Awash with Flowers stamp set.

This is how it turned out.

I’m happy with how this one turned out too but I still think I like my Blueberry Crisp one more…….

Stamp sets: Awash with Flowers, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree DSP
Inks: Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Jewels – Basic Pearls, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Snail Adhesive, Nestabilities (non-SU)

So which one do you like the best????

Another Greenhouse Gala Gift Idea.

I’ve probably said this before but when I first saw the Greenhouse Gala DSP it didn’t really grab me. If it wasn’t for the fact that it was 1 of only 2 choices of DSP we could purchase in our pre-order I probably wouldn’t have bought it. Not right away anyway. However, I’m sure you’ve gathered by now, that is if you are a frequent visitor to my blog, that I actually really like it.

So today I have another project which would make a great Christmas Gift also using Greenhouse Gala DSP, but it’s one of the other prints.

This idea came from Carla Brasher who is doing a 12 Weeks Till Christmas Free Tutorials of gift ideas. Carla’s project is done using a Christmas theme obviously, but I thought I’d remake it using non-Christmas papers & stamps so it could be used all year round. So I used Greenhouse Gala and the Friends Never Fade stamp set again.

When I purchased my candles I thought I’d selected the same size that Carla had used but it wasn’t until I was making up the box that I realised mine were that little bit larger. Seeing that I used different stamps I was happy with the size I’d purchased in the end and it wasn’t too much trouble to adapt my box size to fit.

This is my finished project.

This is my project class for November which will be held on Wednesday 24th at 9:30am or Thursday 25th 9:30am or 7:30pm.

Cost is $20 with all materials supplied.

You can book into this class by email or phone on H: 02 9620 9092 or M: 0418 218 467

I’m happy to bring the class to you if you have a group of 5 or more.

Till next time….
