Gable box gift set

Hi all!!! I love the look gable boxes and believe it or not I had never made one! So for the latest round of UStamp "Oh My Word" I made a gable box, matching card and envelope. My color combo for this round is all blues and I teamed it with very vanilla! I loved how it turned out, I think it's the lace that I love the most! I will have to stock up before the latest mini finishes!LOL! I also made some Swedish chocolate balls to go in the box to finish off the gift, which I included in the tutorial for this round! The only bad thing about this idea was that I only needed a fraction of the sweets for the photo and I had to eat or the rest! But I didn't mind too much because they were yummoooo!!!! He he he! I have another fun project to share in the next few days once it has been on the live site!
So check back soon!

Calendar Page

How fast is the year going already! I have a group of friends and we get together every month to stamp or in some cases just chat and eat nibbles! LOL! Every year we do a group calendar and we do 2 months each and make 6 of each month, once they are all done we swap and end up with a full completed calendar! This year I got to create January and July! So this is my January. I will take some pictures of the rest and show you them all over the next few weeks!
Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by:-)
