Paper Stuff

I leapt into paper stashes in October and typically I am still surrounded by paper projects.  I find that once I have moved over from sewing to paper, it is difficult to leave and go back to sewing.  That same struggle is true when I am sewing.  I want to sew forever and ever and ... well, you know. Right now I am determined to use up paper.  There are shelves and drawers and stacks so I am just slam dunking cards and boxes like a mad woman. 
I LOVE making boxes.  The 8x8 size uses up two 12x12 sheets of paper and that is a head start on slimming down the stacks.  I love sharing these boxes with friends.
 More boxes...  That orange and black Halloween box sure takes center stage, doesn't it?
 Boxes and boxes.  Years ago (and I mean years ago) I bought some cardstock packs at Tuesday Morning.  It is a lovely weight and this cardstock makes awesome sturdy colorful boxes.
 Now onto the cards.  These are card toppers with a few little punch outs in the mix.  I get these sheets at my favorite Scrapbook store, Scraps of Love, ... they can create a cute card in no time.
 More punch outs.  So quick to make, so cute in the end result.
Thanks for your visit.  Hugs to all.

You are so awesome Carole! Between your sewing projects and then your cards and boxes, I so amazed! YOU amaze me!! I love, love your boxes, but how do you know what size to start with to get all these different sizes?! Or do you just make them and whatever size they end of is the size you go with? I love them that is for sure. I also love, love your beautiful cards. I just can't believe how elegant they are. Like I said, you amaze me!! Hugs, Brenda
