since I have visited my own blog. I haven’t stamped AT ALL! To be honest, with not stamping, I was afraid to start up again. Would my work be the same? Do I remember my blog login info? Do I have enough new Stampin’ Up! items to complete a project? Do I know all of the new colors? I even forgot how to use Photoshop.
When I think of the SU! color Crumb Cake and Vintage-style, I instantly think of my dear friend Kimberly Van Diepen. I wanted to create some projects for her. These are way overdue….I wanted some projects to be waiting for her at her new home.
I am extremely pleased with the turnout. Like I said, I was afraid to stamp. It does help when the creative ideas in my head can be executed.
(PLEASE DON’T ASK FOR A TEMPLATE OR INSTRUCTIONS (smile). THIS BOX IDEA IS FROM A GIFT BOX I GOT AT A “v-secret” STORE DURING THE 2009 HOLIDAY SEASON. I DISASSEMBLED THE BOX TO GET A GENERAL LAYOUT IDEA. I DON’T HAVE DIRECTIONS TO PROVIDE).

You open up the top and place a small gift inside. Below is a birds eye view looking directly down on top of the gift box.
