Cake Soiree Shopping Pad

Afternoon All

Well today I decided to make a cover for some of the thing shopping list pads.  I love the Cake Soiree DSP and because of the size of the pads you can see lots of it.

The shopping pad I used is an 8 1/4" x 3".

I used the same technique for the post it note holders.

The measurements are as follows

Calypso Coral = 
7 3/8" x 8 1/4", score on the short side at 3 1/8, 3 1/2 and 3 7/8
on the centre score line and make two slits to the next score line, this is for the                                      pen holder.
Then fold the other two lines in the opposite direction and poke out the pen holder                                part, once this is done, use tear and tape to stick down the flap to the back.  I find it                              easier to put the pen in the holder first, or I always end up sticking down the wrong                              part lol

Marina Mist =  3" x 8 1/8"

DSP = 2 7/8" x 8"

I then die cut a label, from the Lots of Labels and also the Tag from the Cake Soiree.
I die cut the smallest stitched circle and stamped with the For You stamp from the Cake Soiree and the twig.

As always thanks for looking.

Eclectic Drop Side Candle Box

Afternoon All

What a week, but now time to relax and enjoy my craft room for 2 whole days.

Today I decided I wanted to used some small candles that I bought forever ago, so I start off by stamping the Oh so Eclectic Poppy using Soft Suede and Lemon Lime Twist ink, I then heat set that onto the candle and added some ribbon.

I then decided it needed a box to sit in, I was going to use a plastic bag but it just needed something else.

I used the matching colour card and DSP to form the drop side box. 

The measurement are:
Lemon Lime Twist - 81/2" x 8 1/2" score on the long side  at 2",4",6" and 8"
                                                          score on the short side at 4", 41/2"

Berry Burst = 41/16" x 4 1/16" scored at 1" on all four sides.

DSP - 5 pieces at 1 7/8" x 3 7/8"

The piece of Lemon Lime on the lid is 1 7/8" square.

I die cut the flower and punched out the leaves for the lid using the punch and dies from the bundle.

As always thanks for looking
