Stationary Box

Hi all! Sorry for the lack of updates - I hadn't been stamping at all over summer - but I'm back in the swing of things, expect to see some posts from me a bit more regularly from now on!

Awhile ago I saw a couple of these amazing stationary boxes while visiting Janine. She was kind enough to pass on the amazing template by Jackie Topa - you can find her amazing instructions here. I know these have been around for almost a year, but here's my take. I used all Verve stamps, they were perfect - simply elegant.

This is for my Grandma who is currently in hospice care - please keep her and my family in your thoughts.
The closed box. I went with the same supplies throughout to keep things simple and quick to put together.
The open box. I love all the surprises when you open one of these boxes.

I used the same layout for the greeting cards and just flipped the orientation.
I made a little post-it note holder.
The love note sized cards are really simple, patterned paper, a sentiment and prima flowers.

Just as excited as Beverley at seeing this blog updated too - I know you have all those *other* glorious supplies ;)
I was thinking of doing this kind of set for my mother's birthday - so we must have had the same idea round the saem time.....Scary!! Instead I chose a simpler card portfolio.... what can I say.... I'm a wimp!! LOL
