If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog...you definitely want to make sure you see all of the amazing creations shared by the design team.
There's a little holiday coming around the corner next week; and it beckens that everyone show off their bit-o-green. I have a bit of Irish in me blood, so I love to enjoy a plate of corned beef and cabbage in celebration of St. Patrick's Day. If that's not your type of cuisine, then how about candies and chocolate bars? I was really excited to find this festive candy bar sporting a bit-o-green...it was begging for me to design a cute box to store it in, too. So, I started with Shaded Spruce cardstock (it was speaking to me) to score up a handmade box. Besides using Gold Foil paper, I found one of the 'gold-ish' patterns from the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series paper pack to be quite lovely when matted with Mango Melody cardstock. The critters in the Special Someone stamp set are so CUTE! Plus, the Special Day Dies that recently came out in February make it super easy for me to add dimension...I love adding layers that pop.
Since there are no stamp images or die cuts available in either current catalog related to St. Patrick's Day, I needed to 'think outside the box'. Who said the Heartfelt stamp set and Be Mine Stitched Dies were only for Valentines?!! Yep! The heart die produces several different sized hearts, and when you connect the bottom points of them, you will get a faux 4-leaf clover! I loved finding this sentiment as part of the Heartfelt stamp set...simply for the word 'lucky'...it was meant to be!
The closure was created with a couple of holes punched in the top and cinched together using 3/16" Braided Linen Trim...soft and dainty and won't steal the show from the overall layout.
Here's a sneak peek of my project included in the March Stamping Around The World Tutorial Bundle. It was my inspiration when designing my treat box...instead of balloons, my critter has a bouquet of 4-leaf clovers.
