Stamperia Garden Party in a Box Tutorial for Throwback Thursday

Hello, Friends!  This week’s Throwback Thursday project is a Stamperia Garden Party in a Box Tutorial.  After enjoying a short stroll last Sunday with my sweet husband (yes!  we are taking little walks!  Hooray!) I got this crazy idea in my head. Instead of taking a nap, I locked myself into the studio for a couple of hours so I could put the crazy idea to rest . Sometimes, you just have to give in to the voices in your head, right?

Now, y’all know I’ve made lots and lots of box pockets.  I’ve even made them on the outside of my cards before.  But this time, I wanted to create a box pocket from clear cardstock (acetate) so that it would look like a greenhouse window with a little potting bench inside.  See?  I told you it was a crazy idea.  But sometimes crazy works for me, so I go along with it.  Instead of figuring out what I was doing, I just turned on the camera and let it roll.  So this tutorial has a few fun twists and turns in it.  At the end of the day, I think you’ll find a lot of good inspiration and tips buried in it.

Paper Lollipop and Bookmark

Lollipops are sweet…and paper lollipops are sweet, too!  I’ll show you how to make one using a paper straw, scoring tool,  and a 12″ x 2″ strip of designer paper.  It’ s so easy, you’ll want to make stacks of these as embellishments for your cards.  We’ll also make a sweet stamped bookmark that I’ve embellished with beautiful lace from Reneabouquets.

Here’s a peek at all the treats tucked inside the clear pocket.  The chocolate is wrapped in the same bit of designer paper as the tea bag.

A Peek Inside

Learn how to use scraps, the paper cover from the collection, and magnets to make a neat flip page that’s actually a pocket.

Tuck this little note card inside the pocket as a sweet surprise.

There’s a little gift card wallet inside…or you can just tuck in a note.  Either way, it’s a fun addition to the card design.

Stamperia Life Began in a Garden Easel Card

Stamperia Life Began in a Garden Easel Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Have you had a chance to play with the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon yet?  I pulled them out to make this shabby chic Stamperia Life Began in a Garden Easel Card the other day.  Ooh la la!  I love these ribbons!

See what I mean?  These pretty ribbons are the perfect playmate for my 6″ x 6″ easel card.  Create a vintage style border by adding a row of Sunflowers on Kiwi Grosgrain Ribbon over a row of Crochet Lace.  I used a snippet of this same lace as a base for my vintage buttons.

Paint a metal butterfly charm and adhere it over the butterfly in the paper collection to add even more dimension.

Metal leaves are painted with Distress Paint, then tied through the long ends of the thread I used to stitch around the card perimeter.

There’s room inside to add your own personal greeting.  And of course, I had to create a couple of little pockets to fill with treats.

Here’s an itty bitty card where you can tuck in a teeny tiny note or gift.

And here’s a sweet little lavender magnet and sachet duo.  Aren’t they fun?

I love the versatility of this month’s ribbon club.  It’s great for end of summer and also great for fall.

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and techniques that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.
