Ive been busy again!

I had the day off work today and got to spend the WHOLE day with my baby! We watched a million episodes of 'Dora the Explorer'. I cannot believe me 2.5year old can speak spanish! hehe While she was asleep I dived right into my Stampin Up! stuff. I am having so much fun with all of this! I am loving all these colours and being able to match everything up!

I spotted this box on splitcoast stampers a while ago but couldnt find the template for it! WELL I stumbled upon it today as a PDF file. (You know me- I'm hopeless with remembering where things come from! I did save the PDF file to my computer though so if anyone wants the template let me know and I'll email you!)

I have been trying to get some ideas for christmas. I usually try and do something each year but my Nana (who recently passed away) always gave something usually handpainted to EVERYONE in our family. So with her passing I guess the torch is passed to me to keep up the tradition. I like the idea of these acertate boxes! It was relatively simply and I think it will be quite quick to recreate 'on mass'. Cant you just see these filled with caramels or jaffas or some sort of candy! Yummy!!

GOD knows why, but I actually have like 100 pages of acertate lying around (have no idea where I got it from its obviously been there that long!! :)
Here's the receipe;

Stampin Up! Cardstock - Real Red
Stampin Up! Carstock - Wild Wysabi
Stampin Up! scallop punch & 1 3/8" circle punch
Stampin Up! stamp set- Tart & Tangy (cherry)/ Short and Sweet (thank you)
Ribbon - Frenchville

NOTE- the one thing I will mention with this is, because you are using acertate pretty much any of the adhesives I tried showed on the back flap. Maybe you could try a corner piece to hide it? But really when its filled you wont see it anyway. Depends on your preference.

Hope you like.
