Cutie Pie Box

June 28, 2008 at 5:09 pm | Posted in Stampin' Up! | 1 Comment

 I found these photos of a cute little box I made a few months ago.  I made it for a sweet girl, Elizabeth, in my church class, who turned 13.

I used mainly the Cutie Pie designer series papers.  I suspect they’ll be retiring at the end of this catalog (Aug 10th) because the adorable matching stamp set, Two Cute, is on the retirement list.

I also used the It’s Your Birthday stamp set for the saying on the tag.


Stamp Set: It’s Your Birthday (retiring!)
Ink: Rose Red Classic Ink Pad & Marker
Paper: Cutie Pie Designer Series Paper & Rose Red, Bashful Blue Certainly Celery & So Saffron Card Stocks
Accessories: 1 1/4″, 1 3/8″ & Scallop Circle Punches, Tag & Small Tag Punches, Word Window Punch, 1/16″ Handheld Punch, Linen Thread, Dimensionals, Paper Cutter w/ Scoring Blade

I just heard from Stampin’ Up! about a new product line that we will be offering very soon!  And oh WOW!!  I am super stinkin’ excited!!!

I don’t think customers will be able to view the new items until July 1st, when they will be available to purchase.  But I plan on preordering and sharing them with you here on my blog.  Its a completely new line.

That’s all I’ll say for now.  I know, I’m such a tease. 

But let me just say, you will love this!!!

Craft Fair Items

The Park Your Art 2nd Saturday event was fabulous!  I hope to attend next month’s on July 12th as well.  I’ll have to see about rearranging some things on my schedule to make it work, though.

The parking lot was full of artists and crafters.  The weather was wonderful (after the sun set, anyway!).  A steady flow of art walkers kept things busy!  🙂  I was so busy, I completely forgot about pulling out my camera during the event. 

Another thanks to the generous McMartin Realty and employees for putting this on and being so attentive during the evening!!

Anyway, as promised, here are some of the items I had available at my tables (glad I took the photos before the event):

Tile Coasters


Tin Candles, Notepads & Small Notebooks



Cellophane Candy Bags, Gift Sacks & Cards

Here are some of the pages that we’ll be making at my *Bling* Scrapbook Class next Saturday.  (Please excuse the pins that are noticable in a few of the photos.  I photographed them while they were on my display board.)





And here are some sneak peeks at the other 2-page spread & single page that we’ll be making at the class:





(The class is full. However, if you get 3 friends together, I can schedule a private class just for you!)
