Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. As promised yesterday I am here today with the tutorial for the exploding gift box i made for the InspireINK blog hop. I do hope you will watch the tutorial and give it a go. If you have not been on the blog hop I encourage you to do so.

I got the idea for this project from my team mate Heather of Stamp With Nellie, I loved her blue box Click here to see Heather's box , and asked if I could case it. I have changed the dimensions slightly for the 4 internal boxes so that all for bases could be made from one standard sheet.

Peaceful Poppies Covered Note Pad

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well.  Today I am sharing the customer thank you gift I designed this month. The Peaceful Poppies DSP sheet is perfect to cut up and make 6 card fronts from, but I wanted a gift so decided to turn it into a notepad. I had picked up some A6 lined note pads before Christmas thinking they would make lovely customer thank you gifts. I will keep one for myself I think as I love them so much.
