Mom's Birthday Present

I saw this neat-o stationery box on Splitcoast Stampers a few weeks ago, and decided to give it a try.  Unfortunately, the Parisian Breeze DSP paper used in the original is no longer available (why, oh why, Stampin' Up??? It was my all-time fave!).   This is my mom's birthday gift from me this year.  She's going to be 75!  She'd shoot me if she knew I blabbed that to the world.  Lucky for me she isn't savvy to the ways of the Internet, lol!!!

I do like the Greenhouse Gala paper on this, but it isn't the heavier, textured weight of Parisian Breeze *sigh*.  The box really needed something sturdier, so I used regular textured cardstock and adhered the DSP to it.  There are six customizable cards included, two each of three designs, and a variety of greetings ready to be attached as needed with Stampin' Dimensionals already on the backs.  Just peel and stick!  There is also a covered Post-it note pad next to the pocket with the labels.  Here's a shot of the cards inside:
I sure hope Mom likes it!  HERE is the link to the instructions for the stationery box.


  1. Super Fabulous! You knew I would be asking your for the instructions. I am so glad you included them.... Is work over yet?

  2. Love the project! Also love the new blog look!

  3. What a terrific gift for mom! I'm with you on the whole Parisian Breeze thing - and I'm almost out of it! Wish SU! had brought it back since they brought back Baja Breeze!!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
