I make custom boxes all the time. I didn’t even think to talk about them during my craft room tour. When my friend Barbara asked where I got the drawer organizers I realized I should make a video. These boxes are so quick, I’ll make them when I’m making lots of the same cards to hold elements until I’m ready for them. The same style boxes can be made to hold treats or whatever. You can make a top for the boxes using the exact same pattern, just allow an extra 1/16″ for the center section.

This card practically makes itself with the Delightfully Detailed suite of products. You can see the whole suite on page 38-39 in the 2018-2019 catalog.  Pick a card, add a layer of the laser-cut specialty paper, a tag, and a couple of embellishments and it’s done!

Our grandson is celebrating the end of his elementary school years. I love the sparkle and monochrome look with Blueberry Bushel, one of the new In Colors. I thought the greeting from Another Wonderful Year worked well too.

I just love this card. I love the color combination. I love the Hold on to Hope Stamp Set and coordinating dies. The clean and simple card on the left is very pretty. It does not require a Big Shot and is really pretty simple. You could step up the card by cutting out the stamped images. I guess you could do a simplified version with Paper Snips, but don’t they look beautiful with the detailed die cuts? And then cutting the Flirty Flamingo layer with the Window Box die and adding the detailed cross really makes a huge difference.

I designed, wrote the instructions, and demonstrated this card before the new catalog went live. You can still make this card with current products. The printable directions call for the 2016-2018 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers, but the Flirty Flamingo marker is now part of the Brights Collections. And the ribbon I used has been discontinued, but I listed two others you could use instead.

What will you fill your jar with? I filled it with a little bouquet of yellow and coral flowers. This card stands up on its own, a fancy fold with just one extra crease. So easy! The Stamparatus saves a lot of card stock and time. I show you how in the video.
