I hope you are enjoying summer. I am! I wanted to have some little berry boxes to use in projects but it was hard to find ones that were not stained by berries (and I didn’t want plastic ones) so I made my own:
To make them sturdy I used a sheet of kraft cardstock and a sheet of printed cardstock to make the box!
I have been loving the trend of chalkboard art (not that I’ve mastered it) so I wanted to try stamping some. I made this card that looks like a sandwich board that would be on display on a sidewalk in front of a cafe:
You can get my printable templates & SVG cutting files here. I designed the printables to be printed right on your good cardstock so you don’t have to trace. You get two cards on one sheet of cardstock (2 different sizes) a box and tags. The project makes up in minutes perfect for summer crafting!
Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
Let me be the first to wish you a happy Valentine’s Day! I love Valentine’s day, I always have, I mean what’s not to love? Also since it is February 14th that means that this (the shortest month of the year but in the North it feels like the longest!) is half over and I don’t know about you but I am ready for March to roar in and bring with it some spring! This has been the snowiest winter I can remember-and living in Maine that says something! Anyway, back to Valentine’s Day, here are some gifties for my peeps:
Happy Monday!!! For all of you stay-at-home moms out there putting your kids on the bus after Christmas break it’s a really happy Monday LOL! There is some exciting stuff happening in the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff Shop; first of all we have a new designer joining the team & a customer challenge (details below) and we are now offering SVG files to cut with your Cricut Machines (I know a lot of crafters found a Cricut under their tree this year!) SVG files can be cut with a Cricut die cutter and SCAL software, it is very easy:)
I made the Folio large to hold 5″x7″ cards and envelopes. To do this I used a piece of Strathmore Art Paper (12×18″) on a large mat in my cricut Expression and cut it at 15″ wide. make sure the keep proportion box is checked if you want the same shape box, or keep it unchecked if you want a narrower or wider box…I love the options of SVG files and SCAL software! Here is the open box, this would be great for selling card sets in craft shows I think!
Another cool idea would be to make a tiny box to hold Business cards or ATCs, I even heard that calling cards are making a comeback! Oh, how about little gift card boxes, think of all the options! The Recipe Card and Folio SVG set comes with 4 tabbed recipe cards too so you can also make a recipe box, here is a look at the set:
Here is another brand new Template in the Lindsay’s stamp Stuff Shop, this Mailbox comes in SVG, Printable and a png clipping mask all for $3:
***Just a Reminder that you have until Thursday to enter our Recycled Challenge: make a card with a digital stamp and a recycled item then post a link to your card on my blog or in the What’s digital Stamping yahoogroup.

Now on to the fabulous Design team, I must say I missed not seeing their projects last week but they are rested up and ready for another week! I am sad to say that the talented Joy Stagg is leaving the team, this is her last week but I am thrilled to introduce you to Tanya Johnson how will be filling her shoes on the team.
