Photo Explosion Boxes

Last week I got my order of new Stampin’ Up! supplies and in it was the new Rockabilly Specialty and Parisian Breeze Specialty Papers.  They are beautiful!!!

I made some adorable photo boxes with them.  I’ll be teaching how to make these boxes at my Photo Explosion Box Class on Saturday February 21st @ 2pm.  Class members will choose whether they want to make the Rockabilly or Parisian Breeze box when the sign up.  If you’d like to join us, please be sure to contact me by Weds Feb 11th, as I’ll need to order the supplies.  (Class members will need to bring their own paper cutter with a scoring blade and their own adhesive.  Thanks!)  ETA:  Class fee is $20 ($18 for current stamp club members.)

You’ll take your box home all ready to add your photos. Plus, you’ll take home the instructions and templates. Photo boxes make a great gift to keep on a desk or coffee table!

Here’s the Parisian Breeze Specialty box.  I wish you could reach right through the computer to feel this paper!  It is textured, and much heavier than our normal designer papers- almost as thick as our card stock.  It is very nice!

And this is the Rockabilly Specialty box.  I love the glossy design on these papers!  What I also love is that on each sheet in the pack, on one side is a very classic pattern: either stripes or polka dots, and on the other side is a trendy pattern like skulls and crossbones or cherries.  I was initially going to go with just classic stripes and dots and my box.  But then I decided that I’d be using photos taken at a favorite ice cream parlor, so I used some cherries.  Too cute! 

When you make your own box, you’ll get to choose which sides of the papers you want to use and where in the box they will go.

I’ll be adding photos to these boxes soon, and will post new pics then.

  1. I work with Debi and hopefully she told you we are coming on Saturday? I am trying to pay but I’m having trouble finding the link for payment. Can you please send it to me or maybe I’m just missing it.

    Thanks and I look forward to meeting you and making something fun.

  2. Dianne,

    I tried to email you, but got a “failure notice”. But, yes, Debi did let me know that you two are coming on Saturday. I’m looking forward to meeting you!
