Hi Creative Friends,
First off, thank you all for your great participation in commenting on the blog posts to help me celebrate my 11th Anniversary online with my CLM Website. You are all so encouraging!
I noted the winners of the drawings on each day’s posts. If you won and didn’t receive your downloads or hear from me about getting a mailing address for the ones that need mailed, please make sure you have your email set to receive mail from my domain @juliabettencourt.com There’s still a few winners I haven’t heard back from.
Yesterday I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased a die for my Big Shot (die cut machine) I wanted. It was on clearance of course:) It’s the Sixxiz Take Out Box. I love it because of all the other little boxes and bag dies that I have, this one will hold more than all of them. I used a piece of Spring Feast paper from 1st Edition. Love the designs in that.
I also picked up another embossing folder, Tropical Paisly (on clearance too) so I ran off some flower shapes from the Blossom Party die and embossed those to put on top of my take out box. I ran of several flower shapes, cut a few slits in between the petals and played around with them to make it look full. I want to use the box for a little gift.
I have to tell you that I’ve used small take out boxes for my ladies events before and they make a really nice favor. The ones I got before when I needed a lot (too many to make myself) I ordered from Paper Mart. The ones I ordered were their White Wire Handle Take-Out Boxes which they normally have at a good price. They are plain white so you can add ribbon and decorate them anyway that you want. So if you need a good source for a lot of favors, Paper Mart is a good place to keep in mind.
If you missed some of the new things that I posted on the website during my 11th Anniversary, I’ve got all the new links posted over on the main page of the website today.
Also I’ve been asked a few times about a dragonfly devotional or theme. No theme for you, but I did put up a dragonfly related devotional today. You know how they have those big eyes!
