DT Challenge – St. Patty’s paper!

Hello! Today’s project is for our DT Challenge this month. I sent each person some Green Day Stripes paper and some coordinating ribbons, including white glimmer ribbon. I used my supplies to make a little acetate treat box. I used thin acetate for the box and some coordinating green cardstock for the top and bottom and was able to put this together in a snap using my Scor-Pal. I have the new Scor-Buddy on order and will be carrying them as soon as they’re available. They’re perfect for cardmakers and for smaller projects when your full sized Scor-Pal is just a little too big.

I used my circle scalloped Nesties to make the tag and created my sentiment with my Just Rite Small Letter Set, stamped in Palette Landscape and finished off with some yellow/gold gemstones. The box is all held together with our exclusive i {stick} papers redline tape (60 yard rolls, comes to 23 cents a yard…you can’t find a better price!)

Please go visit everyone else and see what they came up with:


In store news, I have decided to discontinue carrying Just Rite so my remaining inventory is deeply discounted and when it is gone, it is gone. You can check out the sale page of the store to see what is remaining.

CHA goodies have started to come in. I’ve been updating daily on our Facebook fan page so if you’re not a fan, go join us and you’ll get the latest news as soon as it is available! So far these things have arrived:

  • Flower Soft Ultra Fine
  • Our Craft Lounge (more still coming…a few sets weren’t available with the rest of the release)
  • Stampendous
  • ribbons and embellishments from Alexx Kesh including pompom trim, jute and some luscious herringbone ribbon
  • paper piercing templates
  • Graphic 45 8x8 collections
  • Unity February Stampin’ Store Kit of the Month
  • Unity CHA releases, which will NOT be for sale on their own site – only through retailers like me. (*BIG GRIN* I love when manufacturers support their retailers instead of trying to compete with us by selling their own products. One of the many reasons I {heart} Unity.)

There is PLENTY more coming. I think I’ve gotten 4 or 5 shipments notices for this week alone and there will be LOTS of goodies and some surprises…I promise!

You can always check the new page of the store. I’ve recently changed the way things are listed so that the newest items added/edited are at the very top of the list. Hopefully this will make it easier for you to find things.

Thanks for popping in!
