All Boxed Up!

Good Morning!
I soooooooooooo wanted to post this project last night when I finished but I had already done two posts yesterday and had unsubscribers...didn't want to tick anyone else off...lol
This took me much longer than anything I've done in quite sometime. Like TWO whole laundry loads from start to finish ;) rofl
I used all Papertrey stamps, paper and ribbon for this.
This is the All Boxed Up template from Lauren and PTI. I had some issues with my printer and cardstock. Instead of printing on cardstock I used the copy paper and then cut and traced it onto my Kraft and Poppy. The scoring was easy to do. Now that I've done one....I bet I could do another in just ONE load of laundry from start to finish!!
Stamps: Believe; Cardstock: PTI Poppy, White, Kraft and Vintage Holiday dp; Inks: Palette Noir; Accessories: Copics, Top Note Die, Oval Nesties, Poppy Ribbon, Stardust Stickles, Dimensionals, SU scalloped edge punch


Here is an inside shot which holds 4 cards/envelopes.

One of the cards....all four are the exact same...I don't normally mass produce(if you call 4 mass producing...lol) but thought it worked best for a set like this.

Stamps: Believe; Cardstock: PTI White, Kraft, Poppy; Inks: Palette Noir, Poppy; Accessories: Copics, Top Note Die, Oval nesties, Quickie Glue Pen and Glitter, Dimensionals
hmmmmm....now to find someone worthy of giving this to!

Ohhh THAT's what you were working on! I was wondering why a CARD would take YOU so long, but you went all out with this set - FANTASTIC! Whoever you deem worthy will LOVE it!

I'd say this was WELL worth the time it took! Awesome project!! I am working on something too that is taking me WAY to long (I think I'm my worst critic), but am hoping to get it done today and stop fretting over it. LOL!

Wow! Perfectly executed (as usual). Unsubscribe? Are they nuts? I may not comment every day, but yours is the first subscription I open! Don't change a thing! You are super-fantastically talented and I'm grateful to soak up any of it, if only through a computer screen! Thanks for all your time in posting!

Jessie/knightrone said...

I totally call 4 mass producing(I did 5 last night and loved/hated every minute of it...loved the card, hated making more than one, LOL)!! I worry about unsubscribers too, but I don't ever know why they have, so I just keep telling myself that they are looking through another reader or something...it kinda makes me feel better, LOL!! You are fabulous so don't change a thing girl!!

Pam Varnell said...

Love, love, love this Dawn. This was definitely worth the extra time I know you put into it.

Don't worry about posting too much. There is no feeling like the excitement of getting something done and wanting to show all your friends. You go girl!!

BTW, I left you an award over on my blog. Thanks for always being inspirational.
