Onstage Swaps November 2018 – Mini Exploding Boxes

Last weekend was Onstage Local where we celebrated Stampin’ Up’s 30th Anniversary. I was able to meet with lots of other demonstrators, got sneak peaks of future product releases and of course, took part in the time honored tradition of swapping!

I had so much fun putting these mini exploding boxes together as my swaps, and whilst the concept is nothing new, I never get tired of the element of surprise they bring!

My mini treat boxes are designed to hold one Ferraro rocher.

Such a fabulous onstage event, I’m already excited about the next one! Thanks for stopping by today 😘

Snowfall Takeout Treat Boxes – Sneak Peek

I had been wanting to use my takeout treats bundle forever and I’m so glad I finally got the excuse I needed by combining them with the brand new stunning and limited edition snowflake showcase!

Gray Granite has become a firm favourite for me so I decided to use this colour for my box base, with fresh fig, gorgeous grape and soft seafoam cardstock for my snowflakes and the panels behind them.

The snowflakes were cut using the brand new Snowfall Thinlits Dies, and I stayed with a tone on tone look for the snowflake decoration on the box. Once die cut, I sponged white frost shimmer paint onto the snowflakes. I’m so in love with the metallic/frosted look the cardstock takes on once the shimmer paint has been added – so beautiful and Christmassy!

Just love how these boxes turned out – so pretty and I think they would also work well at Christmas time for wedding favours or table decorations for Christmas Day.

The stunning snowflake showcase which consists of two beautiful stamp sets and the coordinating Snowfall dies will be available to purchase from my online store from tomorrow, 1st November for one month only! I will be bringing you more projects featuring this beautiful set in the coming weeks.
