Making The Most Of The Bank Holiday!!

I can't believe it, the Easter hols are almost over, just this bank holiday left to enjoy and then back to work, but only for three days and then another long weekend!! So not really that bad!!

I have been playing some more with the Springtime Vintage DSP after being inspired by Cate's crafty designs. I went to Squire's (a local garden centre to me) and brought several small boxes. So with this project i simply wrapped up this cute little box with a sheet of DSP.

I've used a stamp from the 'Four Frames' stampset, inked in 'Early Espresso', and then used 'Blender Pens' and 'Pear Pizzazz' and 'Rose Red' ink to colour in the roses. The 'for you' sentiment is from the 'Clearly for You' set from the mini catalogue, for exact precision i have used my faithful 'Stamp-a-ma-jig'! I used my new 'Decorative Label punch' which coordinates perfectly with the 'Four Frames' set!! This box was finished off with some lovely 'Rose Red Binding Ribbon'!!

Hope you all have a lovely bank holiday!! If you have no plans then why not get your craft kit out and have a play!!


  1. Now there's another stamp set I neeeeed! I've just got my hands on the seam binding ribbon, it is just gorgeous.

  2. The four frames is so useful!!! And I just LOVE the ribbon (so far) I have it in rose red and baja breeze, but just made an order for the other colours!!!
