Hello Stampin’ Friends ~


I’m off to our Annual Spring Retreat nestled on the shores of beautiful Green Lake …


I thought I would share this fabulous post by one of our Artisian Team members. This is such a cute idea,  I couldn’t help but share. This post is copied from the Stampin’ Up! blog “Get Inspired”.  Anyone can follow this blog – check it out!

Mini Album in a Box

Lots of my friends are expecting little girls and boys this month, so recently I’ve been involved in a series of “baby projects,” creating little gifts which my friends will be able to use during their first year as moms of newborns. I hope these gifts will allow  them to keep memories of this year full of changes and emotions!

To make this project, I created a box using the Gift Box Punch Board (item 135863); the final box measures 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ x 1-3/4″. (Start at line “L” and fold on the “S” diagonal line.)

I used the 2-7/16″ square from the Squares Collection Framelits Dies (item 130921) to create a little window at the bottom of the box.

Then I created a mini album by cutting 3″ x 3″ squares from the following: Night of Navy Cardstock (item 100867), Whisper White Cardstock (item 100730), Window Sheets (item 142314), and Vellum Cardstock (item 101856).

I created one page for each month and decorated them with images from different stamps sets : Number of Years (item 140653), Project Life Hello Baby (item 138672), Made with Love (item 138662), and Be the Star (item 135731). I added supplementary pages so that they can add extra pictures or memories of those unforgettable moments.

Since I’m totally in love with Stampin’ Emboss Powder, I used it a lot in different colors, including Cherry Cobbler (item 122949) and Whisper White (item 109132).

Finally, I decorated the box with a nice little “ribbon” and a perfect bow that I made using the Bow Builder Punch (item 137414).

I really hope that you liked this tutorial and will enjoy this little project. Of course you can adapt it to your liking for any occasion or special event in your life.

Now, it’s your turn to have fun!
