Blog Hop: Women In Our Lives

Box-cards-trio Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Blog Hop.  This time our theme is Women In Our Lives.  Very timely with Mothers' Day approaching. 

Our friendly, funny team has demonstrators from all over Australia and a fabulous team forum where we all connect and share ideas, encouragement and lots of laughs.  Remember as you're hopping along, that if you'd like to become a demonstrator and join a warm, welcoming crew - you can get in touch with one of us and we'll send you some more information.

Previous Blog Hop:

You may have arrived here from the blog of Kristine Thompson, or perhaps you are starting your hop from here.  There are 14 stops today and a prize to be won for leaving a comment at each lovely project.  Details below.

Time To Get Hopping:

My contribution today is a little gift box, containing some matching little gift cards and envelopes.  I think it'd make a lovely Mothers' Day present. 

(Inspired by a gorgeous one I saw when I visited Sue Bayliss.  Sue is not blogging just at the moment but she's still creating exquisite papercraft items.)




The box base is 8cm x 8cm which is just the right size to fit the little Love Notes that come in Very Vanilla or Whisper White with envelopes.  Just waiting for you to get creative and decorate them.  They are a great size for a little gift card.

The Recipe:

Colours:  Not Quite Navy, Blue Bayou  oops no it is Baja Breeze (thanks Christine for being a good proofreader - you missed your calling!), Whisper White

Stamps: Vintage Vogue

Tools:  Big Shot, Scallop Envelope Die, Little Leaves Sizzlits, Trimmer with Scoring Blade, Sponge Daubers, Small Oval Punch

Other: Pretties Kit Half Pearls, Pretties Kit Rhinestone Brad, Whisper White Love Notes/Envelopes, Urban Garden DSP


Thanks for visiting my patch of blogland and an early  'Happy Mothers' Day' to all the mums out there. 

Prize Draw:

Leave a comment on all 14 stops before 6am May 3rd and email Nikki at [email protected]  for a chance to win some blog candy.  (Non SU demos eligible for blog candy.)

Next Stop On The Hop:

The next stop on the blog hop is a big hop skip and jump over to Western Australia for the talented Gayatri Murali.  Have fun!!

We Art With Heart girls do a blog hop at the end of every month.  Hope to catch you again at the end of May for another fabulous hop.

Cheers,  Sue

Cute little box of cards you have there Sue. I love how you used the envelope die scallop section to make the "frame" of the box lid.
