Gift Box made with the Stampin' Up Punch Board

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for the month. WOW, can you believe it is almost Fall? Where did the summer go? Hi Sheila, thank you for having me :) Sorry in advance if this is a little picture heavy.

I decided to give my new toy a try. The Stampin' Up Gift Box Punch Board. I have the Envelope Board and love it so I decided to get the box one too. I wasn't going to, but I'm glad I did. It makes 15 different size boxes, according to the sizes. WOW, that's quite a few huh? The smallest is 1.75 x 1.75 x 1.75 using a 6 x 6 piece of paper or card stock, which I made just playing around to try it out. It is very cute and could fit small candies or earrings or a chained bracelet. The biggest one, which I made here is 4 x 4 x 4 using a 12 x 12 piece of paper or card stock. It's a very good size box for a gift.

We are celebrating my friend's birthday on Friday so I decided to make her this box and decorate it. I added some Shred Fill to the box, I'm going to put cash and maybe some Lindt Chocolates inside, this will also take the place of a card.

This is how I started out, with the punch board and a piece of blue card stock.

Here it is all punched, scored and folded.

For the boxes I like to use Scor - Tape or the red tape because it is stronger.

Here is the box, it is very easy to put together.

I used 3 stamp sets from Stampin' Up to decorate my box, Another Great Year, Perfect Pennants and Life's Adventure (which is a Hostess set). This side is from Another Great Year. I stamped it in brown and cut it out and adhered it with a tape runner. I added a rhinestone on top of the i.

This side is from Perfect Pennants, I stamped it in blue, used the 2" circle punch to cut it out, then stamped it again in yellow and punched out just the a with the 1/2" circle punch and used a pop dot to raise it up.

The sentiment, banner with candles and cupcake are from Another Great Year, her name is from letter stamps, I stamped them and used the 1/2" circle punch to cut them up and popped them up. The cupcake is also popped up and I added a rhinestone to the top. I colored the candles and the cupcake with markers. I stamped the candles with banner again and just cut out the banner and used a tape runner to adhere it on top of the stamped image. The sentiment was punched out with a punch but I left the top straight.

This side is from Life's Adventures, isn't that a cute cake? I stamped it in blue and just added touches of color with markers. I cut it out with the Ripple Paper Edgers scissors from Fiskars.

When you punch the paper or card stock on the other side of the punch, it makes these cute notches that locks the lid in place, isn't that cool? I love it.

Well, that's my project for you. I hope you like it as much as I liked making it. I think it came out so cute and I can't wait to make more. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thanks again to Sheila for this awesome opportunity.

A Business Card Holder

Hi Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here with my project for this month. I haven't been able to craft a lot lately, since I've been working a second job. I don't think that is going to last too much longer. I saw this darling project on It's a little box that holds business cards perfectly. I love it and it was so easy to make. I'm so sorry, I didn't take pictures of the process. I know we are supposed to but I goofed. Maybe in the next few days, I will make another one and take pictures from beginning to end. I made the base with orange card stock and added the designer paper from Stampin' Up. I cut a half circle out of the front and added a skittle in the middle.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Thanks Sheila for having me :)

A set of 3 x 3 note cards with envelopes

Hi Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here for my monthly project. Thank you Sheila for allowing me to be here again. I hope everyone is doing well. For my project, I decided to make a set of 3 3 x 3 note cards with envelopes. I cut 3 pieces of white card stock at 6 x 3 and then folded them in half.

I used a stamp set called For The Birds from Stampin' Up. The images are so sweet. I used a variety of markers to color the images, Stampin' write and the new Blendabilities from Stampin' Up and some Copics.

I also stamped an image on each envelope just to tie them together. I used a blue ink and stamped around the card and the envelope to add a little color.

This is the Envelope punch board from Stampin' Up that I used to make my envelopes. This little gadget is awesome, it makes all kinds of sizes of envelopes, it also makes gift cards.

 Here is the envelope completed. On the other side of the punch board is a slot to round edges. I hope you enjoyed my project. Have a wonderful weekend, see you soon.

Digital Scrapbooking

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all doing well, it's already too hot for me :) I've been so busy working, I don't have a "new" project for you but I do have a digital page that I created a while ago. I don't mind creating the digital pages but my first love is hands on creating because that is what I love.

Anyway, I thought this page turned out cute. I still have to practice but it is fun learning. Sheila thank you for having me again this month and I know where summer is upon us we do need to just keep it KISS. So thank you for that.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I promise to "try" to get more projects regularly posted.

A Birthday Cupcake Card

Hi Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here sharing my project for this month and a BIG thank you to Sheila for having me again. My friend's birthday was May 12th and since she is big into making cupcakes, I thought what would be better than making her a cupcake card. I started out with a piece of orange card stock, then added a piece of white card stock as a layer. I had those circle stickies so I punched out 5 of the size I wanted, the punch worked good, but not perfect, I just had to finish cutting them out with scissors but it wasn't too bad. I used twine to cover them up. I started in the middle and just went around and around. I cut out the cupcake holder free hand and ran it through my cuttlebug using a polka dot folder. I tied stretchy ribbon around the middle. I added brown and orange stickles as decorations. I cut out another circle and adhered it on top of the cupcake and used red stickles to make it look like a cherry.

Then I stamped a sentiment. I thought it came out great and she loved it.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great weekend.

Card in a Box

Hello, it's Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room sharing my project for this month. I love to search the web for ideas when I am stuck on what to do. I have been seeing these cards in a box and think they are adorable. I thought I would try my hand at making one. A friend from work is leaving to start another job, so I thought it would be cute to make this for her along with a gift. The box itself is pretty easy, it's the decorating the layers that is was a little tricky for me. For the base, I used a piece of green card stock from my stash. I used Stampin' Up products for the designer paper, the flower stamps, the sentiments and the rhinestones. The little branches are from a Martha Stewart's punch and the leaves are a die and stamp set called The Sweet Life from Paper Trey Ink. The inks I used are Chocolate Chip, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and Baja Breeze. I think it came out cute but I need to practice layering.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you Sheila for having me. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
