Hello crafty peeps, life has been even more full on than normal, although it has been Easter holiday here in the UK, the few days off have been in part spent looking after my ageing parents. Still I have had a little time to both craft and video – although there have been a few issues with my timings…apologies if things have appeared and disappeared!
I’ve also had some time with my fellow demonstrators both preparing for and then attending OnStage. This is the bi-annual event where SU demonstrators get together and get some business training, get our hands on new products and (the most important bit for me) get to spend time with friends. It is pretty full on and I was exhausted at the end, but it was worth it.
In the meantime I have been having some training on the lovely Neal’s Yard Remedies for which I am also a consultant. I love these little ‘Yes Please’gifts that I give my hostesses when they book a party, they are such a useful size to pop in your handbag and as with all Neal’s Yard products they are not only organic but smell divine. I cannot resist dressing them up a bit too – especially when I can combine them with my papercrafting. The box is a straightforward construction, but I forgot to say in my video the reason for the tag topper…~I hang them as part of my display:)
Petal Palette is a pretty set and the floral images come from there…. if you like the sentiments that I use from the Birthday Blooms set – make sure you buy it soon – as it may not always be around! Also, we may see some of the Stampin Up ink colours changing in the near future, so if you like Rose Red….get it now 🙂
The construction is pretty straightforward as you can see from the video and the overall box is 2 x 4 x 1-1/4 inches (5 x10 x 3cm). Here are the measurements for you…
11-3/4 x 4-1/2 inches (29 x 11 cm)
Score short at 1-1/4, 3-1/4 inches (3, 8 cm)
Score long at 3/4, 4-3/4, 6, 10, 11-1/4 (2,12,15,25,28 cm)
Rose Red Card 3-7/8 x 1-7/8 inches (4.8 x 9.8 cm)
