I Thank you - Part 2

So I am on a bit of a mission to promote small acts of Thanks that do not involve an email or a Facebook Post, but an actual thoughtful small act. I am not proposing that we all dash off and spend huge amount of money, just that we take a few small items that someone may like or enjoy, and gift package them. Or you could just make a card that is heartfelt, just something that actually tells the recipient that you appreciate what they have done, how ever small.

Today I have a little box of lip balm to share with you. We all seem to have these in our handbags, so why not gift one to someone in pretty packaging; and it take such a small piece of paper. Just a piece of 5 x 5" Designer Series Paper, some ribbon and a few scraps and you have turned something everyday and mundane into a special gift.

I used Blooms and Bliss with Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and Stitched Satin Ribbon for the original, as well as the 2016-2018 InColour Enamel Shapes. The paper and ribbon are no longer available, but the Glimmer Paper is, and reduced from £4.50 to £3.60, as are the Enamel Shapes, which are reduced from £8.25 to £4.13, so now is the moment to grab yours. The 'live' version is in Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper with Very Vanilla Stitched Satin Ribbon, both of these are still available, the paper is reduced from £11.75 to just £8.23. They both use the Blossom Bunch Punch, which is still available and reduced from £16.00 to £11.20.

The stamp is from the Jar of Love, which will be in the new catalogue, but if you want the Bundle with the dies you MUST get it before the end of May if you want the 10% discount. I mean, if you want to pay more, then please wait until the new catalogue launches, I really won't mind!

I am currently offering additional FREE product to anyone who places and order of at least £25 and uses the Hostess Code below. This offer runs until the end of May 2017.

  1. I love this little box...def going to try this one. You have such good taste Liz. Thanks for sharing. If I email you a picture of something would you do a tutorial on how to make a cover or little box for them? Its just for scented drawer sachets that they sell in 3 different scents and colours in home bargains but they are a fab little gift for someone (female teacher gift) (think they would sell well at your craft fairs). I was thinking of doing them in stampin up colours stamping own DSP as uve shown us before. Thanks Liz. Xm

    1. Hi Maire. I would be happy to have a look at this for you. if you email me a picture and the dimensions (in inches or metric), I will see what I can sort out for you. Lx

    2. Thanks Liz. I will email you. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Its great to have some sunshine for a change up here. 28 degrees 3 days in a row tho think we are due some t storms later today! Xm

  2. Meant to add that saying thank you is something we don't all do enough of these days yet we are all very quick to complain. Its a really lovely idea. Thanks xm

    1. I totally agree. It is almost like we are encouraged to complain, but not to thank! Lx
