From the desk of....

Don't forget you have a chance at winning the entire release by playing in our Winter Thaw Challenge. As well check out Flourishes Blog today for your chance at winning the set of the day. Flourishes Power Hour Release Party is today Thursday at 9pm central in the SCS Forums! Don't forget about the release bundle for the new sets and save yourself a little bit of cash. PLUS there is more, don't forget the Gambler's Sale is going down in price again another 5% from last week. This is your chance to get the sets before the retire!!!

This is a gift I made for the boys teacher using From the Desk of. I used the Grand labels One for this box I created. Punched out the top and bottom of the box. Punched out one size smaller with the beautiful GCD paper I got a few weeks back for the design on the front. Then I took and cut an 8x8 piece of cardstock, scored at 1 inch on all four sides, cut and glued. On the bottom piece I scored the same size sheet at just shy of the 1 inch mark. This way the lid fits snuggly over the bottom. Adhered some scor pal tape to the bottom of both the boxes and adhered them to the lic and bottom. This is a photo of the lid with the cards inside.

Here is one of the cards inside. This holds 5x5 cards and envelopes. This is also for the Timeless Tuesday 104 challenge to use buttons. I am really getting used to using these more and more. Betty will be happy. ;0) hee hee


Here is a photo of one of the other cards in the box. I made several cards of the two you see here. I kept it fairly simple in a few of each. I know she is going to love this. The DP has some fancy sparkles to it but I couldn't get the photo to pick it up. If you click on any of the photos you can get a closer view of the detail. I adore this set!!!
