Stampin Friends Blog Hop - Life's Special Occasions

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop for January! 

This month's theme is 'Life's Special Occasions'. 

If you are following along with the Hop, you may have arrived from  Maureen's Blog. 

Be sure to read through my post, comment below and then continue on to Steph's Blog. 

If you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of all the participants at the end of each of their Blog Posts.

Here are the projects I created for this month's Hop ...

I used the Honeybee Home stamp set and coordinating Honeybee Blooms Dies together with paper from the Brights 6" Designer Series Paper pack to create an Impossible Box and card.

The images in this stamp set are lovely ... especially if you love Bees!

Despite its name, the Impossible Box is very easy to make. I show you two different ways to do this in the Video below.

To open the Box you just pull up the lid ...

... and the top opens out.

The card uses more images from the stamp set. There are outline dies for all of them in the die set as well as additional dies that I didn't use today.

The White panel was embossed using the Honeycomb folder. The sentiment comes from the Celebrating You stamp set.

Here is the Video ...
