August Monthly Jems Blog Hop

Well hello and welcome from me, Amanda Bates at The Craft Spa to the Jems Blog Hop ...

The theme this time is Boxes or Bags - or indeed any type of Packaging project...
So since it has been a long while since I made a Handled Cantilever Box... and my Affectionately Yours papers were still out desperate to be put to use again...
The box is made from Kraft card and I faux stitched everything with a marker pen...

I kept the decoration really simple as there are enough lovely flowers in the papers... just a copper embossed Love & Affection flower, Botanicals Blooms leaves and small Blossom Blooms punched flowers. And an admittance... the brads and candy dots are retired stock... but I had to have brads for the project!!
I do still have the Imperial and Metric pdf Tutorials for sale for this box. Reduced to £3  - OR  - if you are in the UK - free with a £25+ Stampin' Up! order (before P&P) - for the next week.

But PLEASE do remember to tell me whether you want the Imperial (inches) or Metric (centimetres) tutorial. 
The easiest and quickest way is to send £3(GBP) by Paypal to me at thecraftspa@gmail.com  stating CANTILEVER BOX and whether IMPERIAL or METRIC. Paypal does any currency conversion necessary if you select GBP as the currency to send so you don't need to worry about that.... I will send the tutorial through to your Paypal email address (unless otherwise advised on your payment notes) within 24 hours of your payment.

OR click here and EMAIL ME to request a Paypal invoice …  Please advise your Paypal account email address and state CANTILEVER BOX and whether IMPERIAL or METRIC. You will then receive an invoice via Paypal for payment. The tutorial will be emailed to your Paypal email address (unless otherwise advised on your payment notes) within 24 hours of your payment.

Or  (option for UK residents only) - place an online order here quoting the Current Stampin Rewards/Host Code (see Top Right for code).  Please make sure you can see my name (Amanda Bates) at the top right of your screen so that you know you are shopping with me…! Please then email me at thecraftspa@gmail.com quoting your order number and whether you want the IMPERIAL or METRIC version. The tutorial will be emailed to you within 24 hours. Your Stampin Up! goods will be with you direct from Stampin’ Up! in 4-7 days.

If you have not heard back from me within 24 hours... please check your Spam email folder first but then contact me if email communication has not been successful!
And so back to the Blog Hop...and without further ado...  I will now pass you onto the lovely Karyn who has something lovely to share with you... just press the Next Blog button!
