Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop - 'Gifts from the Garden'

Hello, and welcome to the July 'Creation Station Design Team' Blog Hop! This month we are creating beautiful projects using Garden Themed Stamp sets and coordinating products. You will not be disappointed with the talent of my fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and their creations.
To make sure you get to see everyone's amazing projects, click on the 'BACK' & 'NEXT' buttons at the bottom of my post.


We are in the middle of Winter in Australia, and I managed to get some 'Summer' time colour and warmth with my projects by using the absolutely divine 'Fruit Stand' Designer Series Paper & coordinating 'Fruit Stand' A4 Cardstock!

My little Gift Boxes turned out better than I imagined. I used different ribbons and twine to pretty up the packaging, and of course they coordinate beautifully. 
I want to share with you the tutorial I found.
Click here to be taken to Christina's blog and get ready to make your own cute boxes & lids. 
All you need is: a 'Stampin' Trimmer' to cut & score your 'DSP' for the lid and 'Cardstock' for the bottom, 'Paper Snips' and 'Multipurpose Liquid Glue' or an adhesive of your choice.

Inside the boxes; filled with coordinating treats! Did you notice the packing paper lined inside the boxes? It's a perfect fit: 2 strips criss-crossed at 6.5cm x 19.2cm (2 9/16" x 7 9/16") and enough to cover the treats before popping the lid on. How's that for recycling?

I also made some cards to go with the boxes... The sentiment is the same on all the cards as I purposely made a bunch for any occasion using the 'Perfectly Wrapped' stampset. All you need to do is add an appropriate sentiment inside the card. Or not. 

The 'Hardwood' Background stamp was used to make the wood panel circle and I used the '2" Circle Punch' for the backing cardstock circle and 'Layering Circle Framelits Dies' for the 'Hardwood' circle.

This card & gift box remind me of Fruit Salad. Yummy, yummy!

And the strawberry patch.

I love the 'Fruit Stand' Designer Series Paper. It's so pretty and colourful and I couldn't wait to use it!
And here is something wonderful; you can buy a Cardstock pack of 24 sheets (8 sheets of each colour) of the 'Fruit Stand A4 Cardstock' consisting of: Pear Pizzazz, Peakaboo Peach & Watermelon Wonder, to coordinate beautifully with the 'Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper'. How clever!!!

I hope you get a chance to purchase yourself the 'Fruit Stand Suite' of products. I didn't use the 'Fresh Fruit' stampset but that doesn't mean you need to miss out on this gorgeous stampset.

Get yourself ready to keep on hopping... the lovely Holly is up next, or you can go back to see the lovely Sara.
Thankyou so much for being here. D x
