Boxed Card Set

I was up in my wee shed today preparing samples for a workshop that I am doing with Stampers Grove on Saturday 5th December 2015..

In the workshop we will be making a box set of cards, so that will be 4 cards, 4 envelopes and a cute little box to put them in, great little gifts ideas for friends and family

This little sample is a clean and simple version using a cute little scotty dog stamp made by Crafty Stamps, this is Stampers Grove’s own make of stamps πŸ™‚


We will be using the envelope punch board by We R Memory Keepers to make the envelopes and box


There is a cute little belly band that keeps it all together..


The box holds 4 cards and 4 envelopes comfortably


They make such a great gift too.. I put several different sentiments on the inside for different occasions..

If you fancy joining me to make these, here is the link to Stampers Grove Website, where you can find the workshop schedule, workshop times, prices and also contact information.

As always, thanks for popping round

I still had a few bits n bobs to finish off, and did that today, I beaded the hanger, placed a beaded dangley bit from the denim pocket (bottom right).


It was a great day out and if you ever get the chance to go to a workshop with Darcy, i recommend you go for it as there is so much to learn and the projects are fun to make πŸ™‚
