Freshly Made Throwdown
Are you like me and buy, buy, buy then put it away, and than FORGET you have them? Well, if not, good for you - me on the other hand -- slap my head! I am so happy to use my new Verve goodies - and yes, I forgot about them... :(. There were even DIES now you tell me [who loves dies] how I could forget that! Kinda ridiculous I'm thinking!
Anywoo, I used the 2 Verve dies for my tag with sentiment Every Season, a sizzix bird die [that I really have had forever] and PTI leaf die, along with the triangle border die. It's simply a dyin card! :). I entered this for the Freshly Made Sketch #4 and the Color Throw Down 161; coral, chocolate, green and poppy.
I wanted to share how easy it is to make a box.
[Thanks to my friend Karen over at Studio at the Lake] who made box making so easy for me!!]
BOTTOM: Size you want plus 2" all around - gives you a 1" edge. [My biggest bookmark was 3x6. My box bottom cardstock was 5x8]
TOP: same size cardstock plus 1/8th" [My lid cardstock was 5 1/8 x 8 1/8]
Final box measures 6.25 x 3.25 - perfect to hold the bookmarks and what great re-usable packaging.
Oh yeah - just FYI -- I found my photos from my Watermark Tutorial!! I have reinstated my watermark directions at the [tab] top of my blog. If you want a watermark for your cards I have made the directions very easy!! If you create a watermark, I would love for you to let me know how the directions were for you.
Thanks for stopping by!
