Good Neighbours Set

I got this Sale-A-Bration set a little while ago, but have been struggling to know what to do with it. I decided to come up with a little gift box and card set that I could use for house warmings, and this is what I came up with.

All the pieces in the Stamp Set - the trees, houses, roofs and clouds are separate so can be mixed and matched in whatever combination takes your fancy.

This little box is the 2.5 inch box that I have done many times before (very versatile). I stamped houses on each of the four sides. The brown lid looked a little plain, even with the scalloped edges so I sponged the top edges and added the Old Olive grosgrain ribbon.

Of course since doing this, I have found lots of inspiration on the web for this set, so may be back with more.

I was soo excited to have 3 (yes that's right 3) Stampin Up boxes arrive at my door this morning - YEAH. It is my pre-order for the next mini catalogue which is due out on 1st April. I can't show you what is in the boxes but I will be giving you some sneak peaks over the next few weeks. I can't wait to play.

Stay tuned.
