Seed Box

Today I have made a seed packet gift box for my Tutti Designs project, using my favourite, go to dies

I cut myself a piece of yellow card measuring 7 3/4" x 9 1/2"
I scored long side - 3/4", 4 1/2", 5 1/4", 9"
scored short side - 1/2", 1 1/4", 6 1/2", 7 1/4"
I burnished all the folds and cut away the parts I didn't need to form my box.

Using the 4th circle in I cut a circle in centre of what would be my front.

Inside I added tear and tape and adhered a piece of  acetate for my window.

I cut two pieces of patterned paper for the front and back of my box,
cutting the same size circle again.

I used one circle die bigger and one smaller than the first one to form my frame
using a piece of the yellow card.

I added this to cover the original cut on my acetate window.

I coloured some white ribbon to match the box and added as a bow.
I then stamped and coloured the little image and added
it to the box using dimensionals.
The box can hold about 6 packets of seeds and I went with yellow and orange to
match the first seed packet.

Hope you like it!

For my project today I have used
Yellow card
Patterned paper from my stash
Stamp is from Pretty Kitty

Seaside scene

After a recent trip to the seaside I was inspired to replicate the scene by these two gorgeous dies


I think it makes a great male themed card.
I started my card by stamping this lovely scene and colouring with my markers.
I roughly drew some gray bricks and added some green and yellow to make it
look water stained.

I used the Anchor die and some kraft card

and adhered it over the brick wall.

I tore some lovely sea blue sparkly paper to create waves
and added the first strip.

I cut the anchor using some silver card

and glued it over the first wave.

I continued layering the torn paper to create the sea
and then trimmed everything off.

I finished with some nice striped ribbon.

The dies I used for my project today are:


Definitely two great dies to have in your stash!

I also used:
Stamp - Papermania Urban Stamps, Michael Powell
Medium - promarkers and sparkle pens for sky
Embellishments - ribbon

Two rose heart!

Today I had a play with a few of my favourite dies


I started by choosing two papers to work with.
One floral and one plain.

On the plain one I cut part of a circle using my largest circle die.

I adhered the plain paper over the top of the floral.

I coloured the ribbon to match my papers
and added to top of my card.

Using same pen I added some faux stitching.

I cut the Two Rose Heart using the plain paper

and added some matching card to the back to fill in the roses.

I added this to the card but cut away part of the heart as shown above.
I finish the card with  a Love You sentiment and the cute little girl stamp
which was coloured with promarkers.

For my project I used:
Papers - Stampin Up
Card - Stampin Up
Stamp - Hero Arts Sweet Wonderful You

There is a brand new selection of dies now available!!

Butterfly garden

Today I am sharing a stair/stepper type card using two lovely dies called


So I started by cutting the Butterfly strip in white card twice.

I then scored a piece of yellow card for my base.
It measured 4'' x 4 1/2''
and I scored at 1 5/8'', 3 1/8'' and burnished the creases.

I then adhered one strip to the base as shown below.

Then one strip to the front as seen below.

I then cut 4 of the Flower Friends die, 2 in yellow, 2 in green
and cut away the flower from the green base so I could adhere it to the yellow ones.

I made two small slits in the middle of the base card
and slot in the Flower Friends.

I stamped and coloured the little girl image, which is from The Greeting Farm called Miss Anya Dressy,  and sat her in centre of back Butterfly strip.

And on the front I added a birthday sentiment.
A very quick and easy card!

For my project today I have used
Yellow and white card
Medium - promarkers
Stamp - The Greeting Farm - Miss Anya
