Ever since the catalog came out, I have been itching to make a frame using
the Stampin’ Up Hand Lettered Prose Dies.
I finally did it!!
My suggestion is to cut all your Rococo Rose letters, then your Pear Pizzazz letters, then your Pool Party letters, and then your So Saffron letters. The opening on this frame from Ikea is 5″ x 7″ just like in the catalog sample. I drew a pencil outline on my black cardstock of the opening. I arranged the letters so they fit and glued down the Z first. Then I lifted each letter one at a time and adhered it to the black cardstock. In the small spaces scattered throughout, I used the stitched felt embellishments from the Follow Your Art embellishment Kit.
My first time using the Stampin’ Up Hand Lettered Prose Dies- I love them!
The stamp set they are bundled with is super cute- it is called Praiseworthy Prose.
But the dies are a great value for stand alone alphabet dies with the addition of symbols, too.
I just love the NEW Scalloped Notecards tucked back on page 168 of the catalog.
I used the NEW Host Stamp Set called Time for Tags and the NEW Timeless Tag Punch to make this sweet ensemble. I also used the NEW Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out the sentiments.
A set of notecards needs a pretty little box to hold them.
Thank you UK Demo Gaynor Boyce for the instructions.
Here is a video showing how to make it:
I used the retired Subtles Designer Series Paper Packs but you can substitute any DSP.
DSP: I need to measure- will post later today!

Our Florida Stamping Group was delighted to have a new stamper join us last night! What a sweet lady Beth is- all prepared with whatever item you need in her stamping case! She brought me a lovely gift and delicious cookies, too! Isn’t this take out container just adorable that she made with the Stampin’ Up Best Bunny Bundle?
Beth totally inspired me to get my SU Best Bunny Bundle out this morning…
and I made a Happy Birthday Mini Pizza Box!
The Bunny Builder Punch is perfect for punching out those pieces of the bunny.
Looking at the pic, I noticed I have his paws a little wonky- he looks like I do when I don’t want to make an extra trip carrying things upstairs!
This bundle is retiring so if you are smitten like I am, be sure to grab it now!
(That bunny makes me smile almost as much as Robin’s trophy card did!)
I have a treat for you today that you can treat someone with for Valentine’s Day, a Birthday, or a Just Because…
And here is a video to show you how to make the trio of projects!
Please note: Use a strong adhesive when adhering the sides of the bag together and with the trim around the top that goes over the handles. I found my Snail did not adhere it strong enough after my video was done!!
The gift is a pizza box filled with a treat:
I filled this one with an EOS hand lotion.
I made a bag in a box to hold the pizza box with the gift.
A matching card slips into the bag easily.
Actually, the bag in a box is perfect for gifting a set of cards.
You can tuck at least 3 cards with envelopes, maybe even five, in a landscape position perfectly.
Thanks for buzzing by…
