page plans with a twist

Good Sunday morning everyone! Sorry I didn't post yesterday..I've been feeling a little under the weather the last couple of days so I took some time off.

Most of you know that today is Page Plans sketch day here on my blog and today is no exception. You can see the sketch we were to follow below and I did follow the sketch but I tweaked it a little bit. I wanted to make one of the neat origami boxes with cover that I saw on Lynn's blog, Stamperosity so I used the sketch to decorate the top. FUN!!

To put this together I used Lynn's directions with SU!'s Candy Lane DSP, Riding Hood Red textured card stock, a Tilda image (isn't she adorable?), a sentiment from Unity, some fabulous chocolate satin ribbon and Chocolate Pearls. Ahhh...this box just makes me happy! If you can't tell I made the heart old fashioned style...folded the card stock in half...started the cut in the folded corner and went up and around. Easy. I would guess it is about 5" across as the box is about 5 1/4". I'm not sure what I'm going to put in this box for the intended recipient (but maybe it should be something baked, huh?) but I'm pleased with this for the presentation.

Don't forget that if you entered into the contest to win The Slice from Page Plans that today is the day the winner is revealed so RUN over there right now to find out who the lucky crafter is!

On a personal note I wanted to let everyone know that I have stepped down from both the Belli Challenge Team and the Created by Courtney Challenge Chicks. I was getting to the point where I was saying...I have to stamp...instead of...I get to stamp...and I just decided to let a couple of things go off my plate. I love each of the ladies that I worked with and will miss them all!

So, you guys have a super Sunday and I'll see ya later!

Absolutely adorable! I love how you used the sketch to top off your box.

You will be missed on the DT's for sure. Sometimes we get ourselves so involved with "life" that we find ourselves on 'overload'. Do what is best for you and everyone will understand.

Hugs to you, my friend!

This is so darling! I love that Tilda too. Hope you feel better soon!

Fabtastic box!! love the Tilda...so scrumptious! Well, those 2 design teams will really miss you!! But it's no fun when stamping becomes a burden not a treat.

Hey girlfriend! Hope you are feeling a little better today. This card is just ADORABLE!! And I totally understand about letting go of some stamping challenges. Now "I" feel better cause I won't feel guilty if I can't do those with you. WHEWW!! THANKS! ;)
