Peace Gable Box


Happy Wednesday! Thank you for all of your comments and well wishes on my last post. My, I never dreamed I would have so much competition for my Edward though! A few replies on some of your comments: Megan, yes, they are VERY addicting, so don't start reading if you have anything else you might have to get done (like feed your children or take a shower!)...Jen made the comment about using a receipt for a bookmark and I used a Marshall's one, glad I'm not the only one!...Chelle, I agree, book 2 was a little boring to me too because it had a long, lack-of-Edward part in the middle and it was making me SO mad!...and the rest of you, I will be the only one running away with Edward! hee! hee!

Okay, back to stamping...sorry for the detour (well, not really!). This little gable box I started on last night for our 2nd stamp club project. It's not *exactly* like I had envisioned, but I hope the girls still like it. I had a bunch of these gable boxes left over from when SU sold them, and they really do make nice gift boxes, this is the largest one. I stamped some several years ago for famly members, and it's nice to see them get reused and passed to someone else every year.

I used the Ski Slope DSP and the Join in the Cheer die with the Big Shot (Vina's request!). I bought the snowflake dies last month with the intention of using them, but it didn't end up that way, sigh. Maybe next month, right?! I just couldn't resist using the BIG felt flurries, they were perfect for this box. I find the big ones a little hard to use on cards, they're probably best for scrapbook pages and gift packaging or home decor projects. Have you made anything with the big ones yet? Do share!

Okay, I'm off to blurf a bit, I'm still way behind and I'm dying to check out some super cute stuff out there! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

So, now I will add the twilight series to my ridiculously long reading list. I have been ignoring that series, but I see I can no longer.
