Hello Summer Mini Catalogue!!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkkk! I'm so excited to share with the Summer Mini Catalogue! Which will be available from today until the end of the August!


Anyway i MUST show you a project i made a couple of weekends ago with some Stampin' Up! demo pals of mine using some of these fab new products:a lovely giftbox (designed by Diane) using the new tool 'Simply Scored':  

It is quite simply a fantastic tool that helps you to score evenly and precisely. It is the ideal tool for making boxes, embossing cards, mini books and handmade embellishments. So here you are... the beautiful 'pizza box' we made:

This type of box is known as a 'pizza box' and there are lots of tutorials online with various dimensions if you want to make one. The great thing about these boxes is that it has been made from one piece of card ('Blushing Bride' cardstock') that has not been cut at all just carefully scored and folded using the 'Simply Scored' tool!!

Before constructing the box we randomly stamped all over it a flower image from the beautiful 'Bordering on Romance' stampset (see page 11 of the mini catty) using 'Blushing Bride' ink. We also punched an opening tab using the '3/4" Circle Punch'.

We constructed the box using 'Red Sticky Tape' and then placed a square of 'Island Indigo' card on the top - which we ran through the 'Big Shot' using the 'Perfect Polka Dot' stampset.

Next up we stamped a stamp from the beautifully vintage looking 'Apothecary Art' stampset (see page 17 of the new Summer mini catalogue) using 'Island Indigo' ink and coloured in the flowery image using a selction of 'Stampin' Write Markers'.  Heres the 'Apothecary stampset in full:

The great thing about this stampset is that you can purchase a set of 'Labels Collection Framelits Dies' which coordinate completely with this set! and this is what we used to cut out the label!! Perfect for all you scrapbookers out there!!
Before gluing this label onto the top of the box we inked on the sentiment from the 'Just Believe; stampset carefully using the 'Stamp-a-ma-jig' to ensure it was nice and straight!
Finally we made a 'belly belt' for the box. Made from a strip of 'Island Indigo' card (scored accurately using the 'Simply Scored' tool) and a strip of the beautiful 'Twitterpated DSP' (See page 13 of the mini catty) edged using the 'Scallop Trim Border Punch'. We cut two butterflys from this 'DSP' using the 'Big Shot' and the 'Beautiful Butterflies Die' and glued them into place embellishing them with a few 'Basic Pearls'!! Here's a :
