More Mini Milk Cartons

These are some more mini milk cartons for my upcoming class. I used the Elegant Soiree DSP and Greenhouse Gala DSP. The little flowers were the same as the ones on the Elegant Soiree Tube Boxes, using the Boho Blossoms punch.

Mini Milk Cartons for Christmas

I love the Mini Milk Cartons, they are oh so cute. I have been preparing for a Mini Milk Carton class which will include 6 mini milk cartons, for gift giving and Christmas.

For the Christmas ones I made a little set of Christmas Mini Milk Cartons and a little holder for them to sit in. The flower was made simply with 3 scallop circles from Designer Series Paper.

The new Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper is perfect for Christmas and I love the new Cherry Cobbler teamed with Very Vanilla and Old Olive (very traditional for Christmas).

The little Merry Christmas is from the Delightful Decorations set.

Watercolour Class

The wonderful girls who attend my classes requested a watercolour class, so I decided to refresh some cards that I had previously made (see here). I made the cards a bit larger at 4 1/8" square, used some of the new Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, and added a co-ordinating SU button and 'VOILA'.

Stampin' Up! don't have 4 1/2" square envelopes (although they do now stock 5 1/2" and 3 1/8" square envelopes), so I decided to make my own. I had seen a video by Angie Kennedy Juda (see here) where she had converted a normal size envelope into a 4 1/2" square. I used some Rich Razzleberry Designer Series Paper from the Brights Patterns Stack to create the flap.

I have been on a roll this weekend creating so stay tuned for more.

Elegant Soiree Tube Boxes

I was checking out some blogs recently of some very crafty people and found that the talented Petronela had made these gorgeous tube boxes (see here). She always inspires me and so I decided to give them a go. If you want to see how to make these tube boxes check out the fantastic tutorial by Andrea (see here).

I made them out of the new Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper, I am loving this paper it's stunning. But I had a bit of trouble with the original flowers so came up with my own using my Boho Blossoms punch. They are a bit cute.

Do an Owl and a Milk Carton go together?

Of course they do when they are both from Stampin Up - he he he.

This wee little project uses the Two Step Owl Punch and the Milk Carton Die - I LOVE THEM. The little milk carton is oh so cute, and the die cuts and scores it all for you - how awesome is that.

I used the Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper (another one of my must haves from the new catalogue).

Can you see the "TO OPEN" on the carton, that comes in the Got Treats stamp set which is designed to match perfectly with the milk cartons. The clip is a Stamin' Up Library Clip, I am waiting for an order with my Mini Library Clips to arrive, they are going to fit perfectly.

I am preparing a milk carton class and I think this little guy is going to have to be included.

Whoot Whoot

I am not really sure if that is the sound that Owls make, but I am in love with the cutest little owl.

I needed to put together (very quickly) a gift for someone at work who is having a baby, and decided to use the Two Step Owl punch to decorate - perfect. I made a simple box from 2 sheets of retired Specialty Designer Series Paper, and added the little owl in the corner. He is sitting on a branch from his cousin, the Two Step Bird Punch.

For the card I simply punched a 1 3/8" circle from the front panel of the card so that I could place the little owl on the inside. The Congratulations sentiment is from the new A Word for You stamp set.

I am been very busy over the last few weeks playing with all my new goodies from the New 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalogue and preparing for some new classes coming up.

If you are interested in attending any of my classes, and live in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, email me.
