Jumping on the Card in a Box wagon!

Hello!  Today is a beautiful day in Bunbury.  We’re getting some lovely ‘Spring’ type weather (even though it’s Autumn).  A pleasant 28 degrees, sun is shining – oh and the kidlets are NOT HERE!!!  The big one is at day care and the little one is spending quality time with Nanna and Grandad.  Woo hoo!!!  I love them dearly, but am a much better Mummy for having time away.  So, today I am writing a blog post for you, making birthday cards for some lovely friends and treating myself to lunch at a local café by the water.  Doesn’t get much better than that!

Last night some of my wonderful customers joined me for a Card in a Box workshop.  We used the tutorial available on Stamping T’s website which provides all the measurements needed to make a Card in a Box that fits into a C6 (standard) envelope when flat.  I was so impressed by the creativity of Anne, Gayle, Glenda, Cate & Sheila.  I guided them through making the box base, but after that, it was up to them.  We had flowers, mosaics, cupcakes, bikes, and everyone took home a great unique design.  I should have taken some photos, but got caught up in the process and it was home time before I knew it.

These were my samples for inspiration.  I had such fun making them.  You can see how they become addictive.  Like so many things in life, the first one I ever made took me ages, but with some practice, you become quite quick at filling the box up.  Kelly x
