Joanie’s Stationery Box

I was finally able to give my mother in law her birthday gift on Saturday, its also a stationery box like the one I made Lila 🙂 Here are the pictures!


Last days to order from the Summer mini catalog!

Hurry quick and let me know if you’d like to order anything from the Summer mini catalog as the order will have to be placed today!  There are many items that will not be available after today!

Here are some of my favorites that aren’t in the main catalog:

Razzleberry Stationery Box

I made this cute stationery box, from the instructions on Splitcoast.  I have a lot of leftover designer paper from last catalog and I love the design and colors.  This paper has actually been recreated for the new catalog with blue hues.  I made this for my friend Lila’s birthday gift 🙂

Favorite Thoughts

Here are the love notes cards that fit into the favor box that my hostesses will make at the hostess appreciation event on Aug 28.  I used 4 of the new in colors (the box uses the 5th, blushing bride, to color the taffeta ribbon and the magnolia flower). clockwise, the colors used are Poppy Parade, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, and Pear Pizzazz.  The sets used, Favorite Thoughts and Watercolor Trio are only available through the end of August, so if you like them, contact me today to make sure you get them before they’re unavailable!!

Magnolia Flower Box

The instructions to make this beautiful flower are floating around on the internet and I saw it demonstrated at our demonstrator group’s Spring Fling event.  I fell in love!!  It uses the ornament punch and is just amazing.  Those attending my Hostess Appreciation event will make their own 🙂  I’ve attached it the the fancy favor box (from the Big Shot).

For the Guys

Here are a few cards that are very rock and roll and for the guys 🙂 The first is pretty psychedelic and the paper is inked with a cotton ball, rubbing alcohol and a few different colors of reinker drops.
