Stampin' Up! Boxes and Bags 2018 Crafty Cupcakes Team Blog Hop

Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Gemma Clarke

Hello everyone

Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for March 2018. Each month members of the Team take part in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! products. You are currently visiting my blog, Made By Gemma CRafts and below you will see the full list of everyone taking part. To move to the next blog just click the name after mine in the list. This month our theme is Boxes and Bags, which of course are my favourite things to make! Thank you for visiting my blog today.

For my project I have made a handbag that contains some small cards and envelopes. This would make a great little gift for someone or maybe just for you to keep!

My original idea for this months blog hop was to use one piece of 12x12 dsp and make a box and bag but as I was planning out the measurements for the box this idea came to me so then it became a bag with cards.

The main box is made with a piece of 6" x 12" DSP. I have used the gorgeous Springtime Foils Speciality DSP, which is a Sale-A-Bration product. There are still 2 weeks to get some of the limited edition Sale-A-Bration products!

For the cards inside they are 3" x 3", I have used the Garden in Bloom stamp set. I used a combination of Smoky Slate, Basic Grey and Powder Pink for the cards. The sentiments came from the Rose Wonder stamp set. I made the envelopes using my envelope punch board and also stamped them to coordinate with the cards.

The outside of the handbag is decorated with some ribbon and die cut circles. I stamped the large flower image and fussy cut it then layered it onto the ovals with dimensionals.

The Team have worked really hard on our Blog Hop to bring you a variety of creativity and inspiration. Make sure you click the next name on the list to carry on through the Hop.
