Stationery Box

Hello!  I have another tuto­r­ial to share with you and it can be found by step­ping over to the Pion Design Blog here where it is being fea­tured today.  The tuto­r­ial is for this Sta­tionery Box. When the box is opened, the right side has an open box that holds cards and envelopes. I attached a light­weight clip­board clip to the left side and this can serve as a writ­ing area.  The box is sup­ported by Sil­hou­ette pieces of light­weight chip­board.  I made the cards and dec­o­ra­tive trim using the Spell­binders 5X7 Reflec­tive Moment die.  The gor­geous papers are from Pion Design’s My Pre­cious Daugh­ter. This sta­tionery set is fun and easy to make and makes a won­der­ful hand­made gift for spe­cial peo­ple in your life.

Back in May, I posted a wed­ding cake made of paper on my blog.  I men­tioned that I had made it for a ladies lunch at my mother’s church planned for July, and that lunch was today!  My mom had a “wed­ding” theme for her table and I’m enclos­ing pic­tures below of her table. I only had my IPhone to take the pic­tures with, so the pho­tos aren’t that good, but you can get an idea of how things looked.  There were about 12 tables with dif­fer­ent themes, each seat­ing 8 ladies, so there were close to 100 in atten­dance I would guess.  My mom’s table fea­tured the wed­ding cake along with match­ing place cards made with Pion Design’s Flax from their Vin­tage Gar­den col­lec­tion.  The place cards were also made with the Spell­binders Reflec­tive Moment die.  As you can see, the ivory card stock and blue Flax paper exactly matched her beau­ti­ful china!  Her table was so lovely.  My sis­ter Gina was able to be there so we enjoyed this time with our won­der­ful mother.

Lay­outs are not my strength when it comes to paper craft­ing, but these lovely pink papers of Pion Design’s My Pre­cious Daugh­ter have inspired me to make this lay­out. The lay­out can be found on today’s Pion Design blog here.  Taras Studio_Box_20140617_2

The beau­ti­ful papers of My Pre­cious Daugh­ter are avail­able in my shop.  The tinted photo is from one of my favorite Pion Design image sheets, “Fam­ily — From Grandma’s Attic” and is avail­able here.  I also used sev­eral Dusty Attic chip­board pieces — “Vine Bor­der,”  “Word Pack #1,” and “Ornate Fence #2″ — which are all also found in my online store.  I love chip­board as it adds great dimen­sion and dec­o­ra­tion to projects!  
Have a great week­end!

I cov­ered this chip­board Melissa Frances minia­ture house with the sweet My Pre­cious Daugh­ter papers from Pion Design.  The project is being fea­tured on Pion Design’s blog here.  I now have this amaz­ing paper col­lec­tion avail­able in my online shop.  Cut­ting the paper to fit the project was so easy as Paz­zles has a cut­ting file avail­able here to fit this house.   I love mak­ing projects with pink and the lovely pink shades in this col­lec­tion are irresistible!
