I am a guest designer this month on Craft Project Central. My project was actually available on August 17th, but I forgot to post because my father ended up in the hospital and I had to travel to see him. This project is available at Craft Project Central.

You may throw away or recycle cereal, macaroni, or cracker boxes, but you can turn them into beautiful gift boxes for that next special occasion. See how to use Designer Series Paper and other stamping supplies to turn these plain boxes into gift wrap that is almost as impressive as the gift you are giving. You will learn how to wrap two different size boxes in your favorite patterned paper.

If you would like to learn how to make this project, you’ll want to subscribe for the month of August. With your subscription, you’ll get illustrated, step-by-step instructions for five wonderful projects for only $10! You can find out how to gain access to a bonus sixth project over at Craft Project Central.

Do you ever reuse your project designs? I created this card with the Oh So Eclectic Bundle, which includes the Eclectic Layers Dies, and the colors Powder Pink, Soft Sky, and Fresh Fig and I loved it. I used the same design to create the gift bag you can see down below.

My picture is a bit light, but I love the soft colors and the die cut Soft Sky butterfly. Just change the colors and you can create a whole different look with the Oh So Eclectic set. I am sure why they named the set Oh So Eclectic.

I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to create the following bag from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper. I started with a 12″ X 8″ piece of paper to make this gift bag and used the large bag instructions. You could use this gift bag give a bag of coffee beans or candy.

It is never a happy time when you need sympathy cards, but it is a time when you want a special card to send comfort. I need a few sympathy cards right now and decided to create a few different cards with the Rose Wonder stamp set and coordinating Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.      

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Sympathy Card. Find supplies at www.shopwithmystamplady.com

Both roses are die cut from Fresh Fig cardstock and backed with ink. For the card with two roses, I used the negative space around the die cut rose to mask off the Whisper White cardstock and sponged in the Fresh Fig ink. I then glued the die cut roses over the sponged ink.

For the second sympathy card, I used a sponge brayer to cover a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Sweet Sugarplum ink and then went over the ink with a Clear Wink Of Stella marker. The shimmer of the Sweet Sugarplum background does not show up in the photograph as it does in real life.

I stamped the leaf background in Sahara Sand and then covered it with a piece of vellum cardstock so it would be a little bit softer. You can use one stamp set for several different layouts.

You can find the Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlits Dies in my Online Store so you can create your own cards.

You can use the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and Layering Squares Framelits Dies to create a different kind of frame for your handmade cards. I love this Perfect Plum open frame behind the die-cut dragonfly. I used the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set to create this fun Thank You card. 

Scroll down to see a video tutorial on how to make this card.

Did you see how easy it was to make the open frame? You can use the same idea to make open circle and oval frames. Use the scalloped dies to make open scalloped frames. There is so much you can do when you layer two dies.
