Petite Pocket Die Box AND Fabric On Sale!!

Here is a cute little box I made a couple of weeks ago using the Petite Pocket Die.  I think this die is my favorite to make little boxes and envelopes to go on cards.

Box open

box closed
I used Pool Party card stock and stamped a background all over the paper after die cutting it.  I put the box together using Sticky Strip (red line tape).  I distressed a small piece of Core'd'nations brown card stock to make a belly band.  Then I tore the edges of a small piece of Newsprint DSP to go around the belly band.   Next I tied some Bakers Twine around the belly band with a couple of Tiny Tags hanging off.  The finishing touch was to stamp a ticket from That's the Ticket to adhere to the front and added a punched flower.  Pretty shappy chic, don't you think?

I'm trying to get packed for my upcoming trip to Texas.  We were hoping for 80 degree days while we were there but it's looking like it's only going to be in the mid to high 70s for next week.  Anything is better than the cold weather we are having here!  Snow was even sighted this morning in Mooresville!!  Crazy!  I don't mind the cold weather but enough is enough!  I'm ready for spring!!

I have to brag on my wonderful daughter!  She called me a week ago and asked me if I'd like to go on a trip with her .... to Australia and New Zealand!!  Would I???  Is the Pope Catholic???  When and where?  Let me pack my bags!  Ashley and her friend, Courtney decided to take their mothers on this trip and make it a mother-daughter trip.  I can't wait!  We'll probably be going at the end of the year.  What a wonderful child I have.

I want to alert you to another special Stampin' Up is having this week.  If you like to create with fabric, this deal is for you!  All Stampin' Up's FABRIC is 50% off!  Quantities are limited so if you want it, you better run .... not walk .... to my store and put your purchase in now.  Click on Shop Now at the top of my blog.

Petite Pocket Die Card

Marianne and I had a great time in Greensboro Saturday at the Shoebox Swap.  We made 12 great cards and enjoyed the fellowship of some great ladies.  We left the house bright and early Saturday morning and got to the Shoebox Swap right at 9 a.m. - just in time! 

This is the card that Marianne created.  I was so proud of her!  She made her decision super quick Friday night.  It usually takes her forever to make a decision on what to create but this time, it didn't.  She used the Petite Pocket Die on the card.  This would be a great card to slip a gift card in or just a little note to slide out.  The cute flower is from Button Buddies and she used one of the new Dahlias for the center.

Cardstock:  Elegant Eggplant, Wild Wasabi, White, DSP In Color Patterns Stack
Ink:  Versamark, Wisteria Wonder
Access:  Petite Pocket Die, Elegant Eggplant Dotted Ribbon, Bird Punch, Dahlias, Scallop Punch, Corner Rounder

After I played bridge today, I stopped by Mom's to pick her up and take her to Physical Therapy.  I was so happy to see how good she was doing.  Maybe we have turned the corner on her back stuff.  She has slacked off a lot on her pain pills and she wasn't using the walker!  Hip Hip Hooray!!  Her birthday is next week so maybe this is a big gift for her!
