Welcome one and all to my little world! What will you find here, you ask? Well, you will definitely see a lot having to do with my favorite hobby - scrapbooking (both traditional & digital) and paper crafts. I also like to post tidbits about my life every once in a while to keep it "personal." The biggest stars in my world are my son, William, and my hubby (and biggest fan), David! I hope you enjoy it here, and please feel free to become a follower (Click "Follow this Blog" below to the right!). I'm constantly adding new ideas, great deals I may find on craft goodies and you may even run into a tutorial every now and then! Happy Blogging! :o) ~Vicky Jo

My Latest SB in a Box

Here's my latest SB in a Box (yes, I LOVE making these things!). This one was for my mom's birthday.

For the first time, I opted for a larger size (4") and used (almost) exclusively SU products. The paper is their Parisian Breeze specialty textured paper (man, this stuff was THICK and sturdy!). I also went for four levels instead of my usual three.

I used the new oval stamp set ("Oval All") and the new oval scallop punch from the mini catalog to make the date labels. However, I left the phrases in the stamps out by just coloring what I needed with markers and then stamping.

The flower in the middle is from prima (the blue flower behind it is also prima):

Also new - I tried using a different edge punch for the top of each "page", and I love the way it came out!

Here are 2 tutorials I've found out on the net to make these boxes:



The main difference between the two are how the box tops are made. I prefer the deeper, sturdier version I made here, but I've also made the shallower version when I needed to show more design on the box sides.
