Today I’m taking a day off to go shopping for some new clothes to take to Thailand with me next week! YAY!
video I uploaded this morning was planned to be one of those that would
be published while I’m away.
Unfortunately, when I made the video I had
planned for today, it was shortly after I’d had a migraine!
I’m lucky that mine are aura migraines and only last half an hour, the
effects on my speech lasts quite a bit longer!
I’ll re-do what should
have been today’s video tomorrow, and will schedule it to publish while
Envelope Punch Board (EPD) Box is the 3D project we made in class last
I made the boxes this size so I could fit some perfumed sachets
I received the sachets from one of the young Scottish
demonstrators, called Maire, who’s in my Stampin’ Up team. Many thanks,
have one of these boxes sitting on my desk here as I’m writing
my blog, and the perfume is divine!
I used the Bundle of Love Specialty
Designer Series Paper (DSP) for this project as it’s thicker than our
This has meant the box is beautifully sturdy, and is very attractive, too.
There is a smoothness to this
DSP which makes it almost feel like fabric!
In this pack of DSP there
are three designs and each design comes in Blushing Bride and Soft Sky,
with the design in Very Vanilla.
On the reverse of each sheet is the same
pattern as on the front, but in gold foil on Very Vanilla.
It’s an absolutely stunning pack which I’m sure I’ll use more than one pack before the life of this new annual catalogue comes to an end!
made the lion tags using the A Little Wild Stamp Set and co-ordinating
Little Loves Framelits Dies.
I started by stamping with Archival Basic
Black Ink and then colouring using Watercolour Pencils.
To get the
gingery colour for the lion, I gently coloured over using the Early
Espresso Watercolour Pencil, and then gently coloured over it with the Pumpkin Pie Watercolour Pencil.
I blended the colours together using a Blender Pen. Every tag I make comes out a slightly different colour, but they’re all a gingery colour, so I’m happy with that!
I stamp the inside of the tag with the To: From: stamp that’s comes in the A Little Wild Stamp Set. I’m hoping Stampin’ Up! will bring some Christmas related animals we can use with these dies.
If not, I’ll do my own by adding antlers or Father Christmas hat! Watch this space! That’s about it for today. I wish you a happy Sunday and until tomorrow, happy crafting.

Very, very cute little box, Jan. You always have such lovely paper projects. Appreciated you showing the trick for nice corners and edges using the watercolour pencil box. I also liked your colouring treatments on the wee lion, incl. opening his eyes! Lovely video and thanks so much again!
Hi, Geraldine. The EPD is such a great way to make boxes and it's so easy too. I'm so pleased you've picked up some hints and tips from today's video. ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
