Pretty papers make pretty gifts

Happy Friday everyone, hope you've had a good week.  I thought the sunshine was too good to last.  We're back to rain again here! Oli and a friend headed off on a last  minute .com holiday in Tenerife earlier this week and has called a couple of times to let me know how great the weather is.  Come back sunshine, missing you already.   
I've been running up some new samples and a couple of gifts this week with the latest G45 papers.  I've used the Botanical Tea papers this time to alter this notelet box I've made as a gift, and have started to fill it up with notelets and envelopes made from the patterns and solids papers that compliment the collection   I'm loving my envelope punch board the girls at SirStampalot persuaded me to buy.  Envelopes are so easy to make with it to fit any sized card you want.  I had to add one of the easy to make ribbons inside the box too.  I love them :-) 

I'm at Pink Tulip tomorrow so if you're in the area and can call by to say hi and have a browse at all the new products just in it would be great to see you. :-) C


  1. Morning Clare, This notelet box is stunning, the papers you have used are gorgeous, I'm especially loving the bow, would love to know how you have made it !!
    Have a great day at Pink Tulip tomorrow, I'm off to NEC tomorrow, train tickets and show ticket all ready, it will be such a looooooong day haha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  2. This is such a beautiful project, love the papers and the pretty bow too. I have just completed my album with the botanical tea papers which I was inspired to make after seeing your demo at Sir Stampalot and I`m so pleased with it, thanks again for sharing all your lovely work and tips with us all, hugs Sara xxx
    p.s. glad you are enjoying your punch board ;)

  3. Good afternoon Clare,

    It's been a while since I last left a comment but what a beautiful project to come back to. The papers are just fabulous and as you say when you have such beautiful papers as Graphic 45 to work with you cannot fail because they make everything look terrific. Thank you for sharing this with us and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

  6. Hi Clare! What a lovely notebox. Great idea. And that bow. I have to echo everybody else's comments. How did you make that bow! Can't wait to see what you'll make next. As always G45 papers are the best to show off the art ideas. Have a great weekend at Pink Tulip!! :) Hugs, Ruth Ann xoxo
