Grandma's Rocking Chair - August 31. 2014 - Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit

Grandma's Rocking Chair - Review of the New Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit.

As some of you know I am hooked on boxes and also on the Big Shot so when I saw the new Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit I had to get it.  I LOVE IT.

At first I just made plain boxes.

Then I saw a few other boxes people were making and I had to try something different.

So using the Tee-Hee-Hee set I made this box.

Then this weekend I went crazy and tried a few others.

How about this pumpkin isn't it great.
 Then this Santa I think I will give this at our Christmas Party.
 How about the Scarecrow?

I have about 10 others I want to do.  My youngest daughter loves elephants and I want to do one for her.

I just love these.  I have taken small ziplock treat bags and put M&M in them and some Hershey Kisses but they bounce around a bit.  Think I will go to the store and see what else will fit nicely in them. 

Here is all the information the Curvy Keepsake box Thinlit.
Price: $32.95
Make the package as unique as the gift inside of it with a curvy keepsake box, courtesy of this delightful die set. Use with Big Shot and Standard Cutting Pads. Finished box size: 2-1/2" x 2-3/4" x 2-1/2".

I also have a special if you order your Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit from me I will send you two separate Kits to make your own special boxes all you will have to do is cut out the boxes with your Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit and assemble your box.  I will give you a choice of which ones you can have.  So order now click here.

Happy Stamping

Stampin' Addicts Fall Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the great Stampin' Addict Fall Blog Hop.  As many of you know I love Halloween so for this Blog Hop I choose a Halloween Set.  This set is from the Holiday Catalog from Stampin' Up! you can order from it August 28 - January 5, 2014.  I really love this catalog and I think you will to.

You can start this hop any where but you probably got here from Holly the Rubber Redneck, didn't she do a great job! I love what she did with Halloween Street.

You can also find out more information and the entire list of participants on the Stampin' Addicts site just click here.

Well let's look at what I did with Tee-Hee-Hee.  I really love this stamp set.

My First project was also using Curvy Keepsake Box.  I really like this box and it is filled with a few Kisses.
I used one piece of Basic Black and one Piece of Pumpkin Pie.  So cute?

The next one I did I tried a new Technique called the quarter Fold card.  I love the saying "whether your a good witch or a bad witch it's all about the shoes"  I think this will be a great Halloween Card and I will be doing this one for my September Technique Class.

This next one is a fun one I did it can be used as an invitation I really like it so clean and simple.

My Last one is one I will be using for Halloween.  Instead of candy we give out bookmarks for Halloween and I will be using Tee-Hee-Hee for this year.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects.  Next stop on the Hop is Yapha and Making Spirits Bright.

Happy Hopping.

I remember all the times in between the good and the bad.

Good Luck Miss Kayla  I love you.
