Pouch Boxes

Hi all,

Well just wanted to post a few pouch boxes that I made earlier this week that I haven't been able to upload to my blog until now.

Just wanted to show you how you don't have to just make cards with SU products, it can be layouts or 3D items, and I'm going to try and make more non-cards for my Open House Day to show you that from a stamp set, ink and paper the possibilities are endless.

Below is a picture of two pouch boxes I made using all SU products:

On the left hand side
Loads of Love (2008-09) - Set of 7 stamps. Available to buy in the current UK Idea Book & Catalogue 2008-2009 - P.27. I have used the pickup truck, Loads of Love! sentiment and pile of hearts from this stamp set.
Loads of Love Accessories (2008-09) - Set of 12 - P.27. I have used the lady as the driver :) I could have put a man in the front seat instead.
SU Cardstock - A4 Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Real Red - P68-69.
SU Ink Pad - Basic Black - P.67.
SU Brad - Bashful Blue - P.82.
SU Dimensionals - To pop up the hearts and have a 3D effect - P.87.
I have coloured in with Letraset Promarkers, as I haven't yet bought the SU Write Markers - it's on my wish list!

On the right hand side
Fast & Fun Notes (2008-09) - Set of 8 stamps. Available to buy in the current UK Idea Book & Catalogue 2008-2009 - P.30. I have used the birthday cake and sentiment separately.
SU Cardstock - Textured 12x12 Cardstock in Basic Black - P.67.
SU Cardstock - A4 Whisper White - P67.
SU Ink Pad - Basic Black - P.67.
- Circle and scalloped circle.
Promarkers - For the hearts.

Thanks for looking, I hope you like the cute boxes - to be filled with various goodies of course!

Bye for now,
