Stars Class Kits

Hi there.

Had lots of South Hills Designs parties and events over the last few weeks which has taken up lots of my time but I had a 'eureka' moment today and just had to have a little play.

We had our Stars Class last weekend where I showed the ladies how to assemble and decorate the 26 stars in the Many Merry Stars kit. We talked about ways of making the stars into gift boxes and this afternoon whilst driving to see Sara at the Wortley Hall Craft Fair I suddenly came up with an idea.

Instead of assembling them using all the tabs on the side strip to each point on the stars I cut some of the tabs off before assembly and here they are.

These are the boxes closed.

And here they are open.

The strips already have the adhesive on you just peal off the adhesive tape. This is how I cut the tabs off the strips.

The opening is quite small but it does allow you to get items inside- I will probably pad out the boxes with some tissue paper when I put gifts in. But if your filling with sweets it probably won't need anything.

Hope your having a great weekend.

Commission for 40th Anniversary.

I had a commission to make a 40th wedding anniversary card last week and here is the finished card.

It is a 8x8" card blank from my stash and I used Real Red ink and cardstock to decorate.

I used the hearts stencil and a sponge dauber to add the red hearts to the card blank making the hearts at the top darker than the bottom.  Then I used crystal effects on the hearts to give dimension and shine.

The hearts were die cut from Real Red and White cardstock then the flowers from Bloom with Hope stamped in Real Red ink before matting them onto the card blank.  I was very brave and stamped the 40th Anniversary by 'eyeballing' it (I forgot where I had put my stamp a ma jig!!!).  The 'happy' was stamped on a scrap of card then punched out with the Whats up punch (arrows).

The ribbon is just some from my stash as I couldnt find any real red (memo to self, tidy up the craft room!!!).
Table built using Stampin' Up! Product Table Builder from The Crafty Owl.

I stamped the inside of the card (sorry, I forgot to take a photo of the inside (doh!) but you can see the stamped image on the envelope.

Don't forget, the early bird registration for the Stars Class (here) closes on Monday evening.  After then the class fee goes up £5.  Here is a reminder of the Stars Class project.
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
