Stationery Box Gift Set

Hi there!
I got down to some serious crafting today. I wanted to find a tutorial for a Stationery Box Set and I came across this fabulous one on YouTube. I was a little intimidated when I first saw it thinking it would be quite challenging, but the opposite was true - it is SUPER easy and quick!! So easy in fact I made two!
I used a cardstock with a colour co-ordinating dp from my stash. I also used the same papers in making up the 6 matching cards that fit into the back pocket.

Here are the 6 cards I put together for this set. I essentially made 2 each of 3 designs. I wanted something quick and easy so there are no coloured images in here at all. I went for very simple and elegant. The cute bird stamp is Hero Arts. Border punch is Fleur de Lys from EK Success. I added a calendar for 2010 (my mum sent me a bunch from WHSmith) instead of a little address book. A nice way to keep note of birthdays & occasions throughout the coming year.
Well, that's it. I will show you my second set either later today or tomorrow. As much as I don't want to do it, my house cleaning has been put on the back-burner to my crafting recently so a good clean-up is needed today before Christmas! I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful day and are wrapping things up (literally, lol) before Christmas!
Thanks for your visit and the time to leave a much appreciated comment. On an extra note before I leave, I am thrilled to have reached 200 followers so I think I will be spreading the joy in the New Year with some candy! So be sure to watch out!
