I have been a bit busy lately creating in a different way, I have been making a couple of storage units for my desk. I have posted an update to the My Creative Space page with my woodworking creativity.
Now that my desk is more organised I wanted to jump in and do another challenge. I love the new challenge site "Less is More" as sometimes I think it's easy to get carried away with trying to put too much on a creation. This is the first time I have joined in with their "3 Squares" challenge and I have taken it a bit out of the box so to speak. I have created a cute little box from a video tutorial from Chick n Scratch the 3 Squares are 1) the 6"x6" square the box is made from, 2) the 1 3/4" square of DSP on the sides, and 3) the scallop square on the front. I love the new little For You Flower stamp in the Sale-A-Bration Punch Bunch set. This is usually a round stamp centred in a scallop circle, however I wanted to use just the centre of the stamp and put it in the middle of a scallop square instead - I love, love, love a versatile stamp! The other reason I wanted to use this stamp was because it fits with the Stampin' Up Only Challenge (SUO) which is to use one of the Sale-A-Bration stamps. Versatile stamps are great, FREE versatile stamps are even better and that's what Sale-A-Bration is all about, so contact me if you are interested in learning more.
The little box is perfect to hold a single Ferrero Rocher I took the picture of this little box and then gave it to my daughter who was feeling a bit down. Sadly I didn't check the photo before giving it to her and I realise now you can't see the chocolate. I would take another picture but the chocolate vanished rather quickly lol.
I used the In-Colours Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla, and Daffodil Delight in the centre of the flower.
