Project Inspiration 7-18-15

Still trying to adjust to the 5:30 mornings and 2 hour commutes!  I'm just happy to be working again but sure wish I was working closer to home!

Going to try and catch up on inspiration posting.  I have been pinning a lot of great stuff to share with you.  Just needed to blog it.  I hope everyone is having a great summer so far.  The weather is been very nice here in northwest WI.  Got our first steamy day yesterday.

Project Inspiration 7-6-15

I hope you all had a fun and safe holiday weekend.  I stayed home and set off some fireworks.  I'm glad I avoided the traffic home on Sunday night!

My new job downtown gives me a lot of time on the commuter bus.  And of course, that's just more time for me to spend on pinterest so I can share all of the fun finds with everyone!

Hello All, it was a long week!  Back to work, taking the bus downtown for the first time in my life.  Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but I'm spending 2 hours a day on my commute.  Not what I'm used to!!  Sorry I haven't gotten around to sharing more links until now....  I will try to keep up.  By the time I get home at night, sometimes I just too tired.  LOL

Project Inspiration 6-19-15

I'm planning a fun weekend at the Dells with my daughter.  My last week off before I start my new job next week.  It will be exciting (but rather confusing at first) to be working downtown. I will try to schedule my posts ahead so there aren't gaps between posts.  I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful summer.  So far, it has been perfect with sun, temps and rain when we need it.

I really need to get my studio cleaned up!!  Can't get anything done with such disorganization.  I admire all of you with beautiful immaculate work spaces.  It definitely boosts your creativity when you have a nice clean space.

Speaking of creativity.....

Mini Nugget Gift Box Tutorial

Hi all, this little nugget box is so easy to create and you can get 2 out of a single sheet of card stock!  The box holds 4 wrapped Hershey Nuggets perfectly.  Following are step by step instructions to make the box.  You can decorate the box any way you want.  I have included suggested layer sizes for the top and sides of the box in decorating.  All products used are Stampin' Up! (some are not current).

MINI NUGGET GIFT BOX TUTORIAL



Step 1:
Cut card stock 5-1/2" x 8" (Baja Breeze used here)
On the long side, score at 3/4", 1-1/2", 4", 4-3/4", 7-1/4"
On the short side, score at 3/4", 1-1/2", 4", 4-3/4"
Clip away the sections as shown.


Step 2:
Sharpen the score lines.  Add strong adhesive (Scor tape or sticky strip) to the 4 small tabs.  Add decorative panels of designer paper, if desired (5/8" x 2-3/8" Twitterpated papers used)


Step 3:
Secure small tabs on the inside corners to form a box.  Apply adhesive to the 3 side pieces and fold to the inside and secure.


Step 4:
Wrap 4 Hershey Nugget candies with 1" x 3" designer papers.  Close box lid (tabs to to the inside).  Design box top.  I used a floral panel 2-7/16" x 2-7/16", cherry cobbler panel 2-1/8" x 2-1/8" and shimmery white 2" x 2" punched with butterfly.  Greeting is from Petite Pairs stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

Long time no post

Hello all, it has been a few months since I have posted.  Seems my life has been in a constant upheaval.  My company decided to contract out our entire accounting department so I have been spending all my time applying and interviewing for jobs.  I kind of lost my desire and mojo to create.  Thank you to my readers that have stuck around and for those of you that sent me a personal note to check up on me.  I appreciate all of you!

I recently created some stuff for a craft show and it lit a creative fire under me!  I'm excited to share some ideas with you.  I created a little nugget box and am working on the step by step instructions for you.  Watch for it this week.  It can be adapted to any design you want.  All you need is a paper cutter and score board and you are set!

To jump start the day, I wanted to share some cool ideas I discovered while surfing the net recently.  I see so many of you are still diligently creating.  I recently purchased new punches from Stampin' Up!  They retired some of my favorites and I'm pretty bummed, but this just forces me to create some new ideas with the new punches!
