WELCOME!


Welcome to Squirrel's slightly nutty world of rubber stamping, papercraft, cats, Formula 1 and a variety of other off-the-wall topics. It's fabulous to see you and I hope you enjoy your time here. Please do pop back and visit me again soon!

August Already?





Hi All,

Strange things happen to your mind when you are out of your normal routine! My last day at work was 16th April and, in a way, it only feels like a couple of weeks ago instead of fifteen weeks. I have lost the plot completely with birthdays (to all of you who grumbled, I am sorry - but I think I had a valid excuse this time!) and what month of the year it is.

Anyhoo, I am determined to cram in some crafting before I get dragged kicking and screaming back to work in a couple of weeks. My bestest mate, Julie-Pig, is hitting the big 40 this month and I wanted to do something that little bit extra for her soooo I had my first ever attempt at a Treasure Box.

I used Bazzil Basic pastel card in three shades, pink, soft green and cream. Although the photos don't show it, I have painted the box using H2Os so there is a little bit of twinkle in the sunlight.

Well hunny, I've not got a clue how you made it but it's amazing! Is it a template? Beautiful! xxx

Squirrel x said...

Hi Mand, no hun, not a template, it's a stamp. You can made four, five or six sided boxes from them. Trust me to attempt a six on my first go. There are two sizes, this is the taller one, and there are about six floral designs. I think they are made by Creative Expressions. I bought mine from Sir Stampalot.

Fabulous Squirrel! I made one of these ( a six-sider) a couple of years ago and was thrilled with it, but you are right they do take some time. I'm feeling inspired now seeing this - perhaps I'll try another one!

This is gorgeous Squirrel - the colours are fab.

I've been dying to know why you call Julie 'Julie-Pig' ??? (I can't be the only curious one surely!)

Squirrel x said...

Heheheheheh, Carol, you are not alone. Between me and himself, we know four Julies so they get their own designation. Julie-Pig got hers from a really terrible but incredibly funny pig joke she used to tell, frequently, when she was a little bit intoxicated! No one else has managed to tell that joke with quite as much enthusiasm!
