A Birthday Gift……..

Good Morning Dear Reader; hope that this finds you well? Today i am having my chimney swept so that we are ready for when the now inevitable awful winter weather arrives.  We are very lucky that Mr.C has access to a large pile of season free wood each year so we can cut our fuel bills by using our fire.  Plus who doesn’t love a roaring fire crackling merrily away in the grate?

Today i am going to share with you the packaging that i made for a friend’s birthday present;

Cute packaging for a birthday gift Check it out at Created by Charlie-Louise Camp Images Stampin' Up! © 2013 21-08-2013 09-59-10

I really love the sand-able Co’ Ordinations range of cardstock that we stock and even more so now that it is available in ALL our colours! On this project i have used a band of Pistachio Pudding Co’ Ordinations  cardstock which i lightly sanded on the edges and topped with a crumpled band of Baked brown sugar DSP from the amazing value in colour paper stack; you get 40 sheets for £19.50 that is 4 sheets of doubled sided DSP in 5 colours! Brilliant value!

I sponged and popped a folded doily under the band and then topped it off with a flower in Crisp Cantaloupe Co’ Ord’s which i punched with the Blossom punch sanded quickly and topped off with a vintage button and a pearl. A quick project that really takes a gift from lovely to special.

You can see a sneak peak of the gift through the clear box that i wrapped it in i will share that with you in a later post.

If you would like to make any of these projects then head over to my shop where you can purchase everything that you need.

Until Next time
