Just Add a Box or a Bag - JAI 62

I made a little 6X6 Bag ...


... from Love Letter DSP


... and my favourite Sale-a-bration set, Bliss.
(SAB Promotion has now ended)


It's just the right size for a lip balm or a little chocolate bar.


It was so easy to make and you can find the tutorial at
Stamp and Scrap with Frenchie


At Just Add Ink we've gone all 3D for our challenge this week to make a box or a bag. I first spotted this cute little bag at Splitcoaststampers made from a piece of 6X6 DSP and couldn't resist trying it out for myself.

I also had to use Bliss again as that little butterfly stamp was just the right embellishment for my 'Houndstooth' handbag. Sadly, Sale-a-bration came to an end yesterday but the good news is the brand new Australian Autumn/Winter Catalogue was released TODAY!! I've already shown you a couple of sneak peeks in previous posts but can't wait to share some more goodies with you.



Project Recipe for JAI 62 - 6X6 Bag
Stamp Set: Bliss (SAB/retired)
Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler Ink and Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Love Letter DSP, 1/4" Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Metallic Brads, Large Oval and Scallop Oval Punches, Dimensionals, Sticky Strip


So have you got a sweet little box or bag you'd like to make for this challenge? If so, head on over to the Just Add Ink site to link up your entry and check out some fabulous inspiration from the DT Members. We are also excited to have our first two Guest Designers join us for the month of April.

I'm really looking forward to browsing through all the entries and no doubt we will have lots of extra resources in the form of more links to fabulous templates and tutorials by the time the challenge has ended!

Happy Crafting,

Love this cute bag Bron♥. The houndstooth pattern reminds me of the uniform we had way back when I was a Tupperware Manager...ask your mum if she remembers that, I hope they still don't have them! It looks cute on the bag but I didn't like it as a jacket! LOL

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!
and ...

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink


1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.


This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.


2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.


3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.


4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).


5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
