Time for a little Stampin' Up Product review!
I know, I know, I'm not supposed to play with my new Spring Occasions 2018 Catalog demo-only pre-order stuff until I'm done with these last 40 Christmas cards!!! But when I saw this kit in the upcoming offering I had to have it... and had to put it together right away. Isn't it gorgeous? And so easy to stamp and assemble.
In about an hour and a half or so, I had the card box all set up and 16 beautiful cards ready to go. I'm keeping this one for myself, but what a great gift it would make, eh? Either made up already or left as a kit, I can think of all kinds of friends and relatives who would love this set.
The set-up is so handy. Each divider card in the box gets labeled with a month, and has a line for every day of that month. You add your friends and family's birthdates to the cards, and then when you get their card finished, tuck it in under that category. You can see at a glance who you still need to make cards for--and there's plenty of room to tuck the envelopes and sticky sheets of postage stamps or address labels inside, too.
The box itself is super study and glossy-coated to wipe clean, with heavy-weight divider cards and a sturdy elastic loop and metal button clasp. I was impressed with the little instruction booklet, too. Large, full-color photos of the finished cards with easy tips on assembly, a complete supply list (stamp set, Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive inks, a pair of scissors and adhesive) and detail photos of the few tricky parts help make assembly a snap.
The Perennial Birthday Box Kit coordinates with the sayings and flower images in the new Perennial Birthday stamp set, or you can use any stamps you have on hand to finish off the cards. Everything is die-cut and ready to stamp, pop out, and adhere. The pink card below is my favorite... great layout! I'll be using that on other projects, too.
Pretty sweet, eh? I'm so excited for the Spring Occasion 2018 mini catalog and I know you can't wait for it to start on January 3rd, either. Stay tuned for more sneak peeks (after I finish up those last holiday cards!) and let me know if you would like for me to be YOUR primary demonstrator and send you catalogs. I love to spoil my customer friends rotten--we're having so much fun! Join us! [email protected]
PS... if you're in my local Calendar Club on the 3rd Mondays of the month... we're making this entire project! I couldn't resist getting you all this adorable box and kit. See you January 15th for the first meeting of 2018!
