Wildflower Fields Fridge Mini Calendars - Blackberry Bliss

Good evening everyone. A few days ago, on my facebook page,  I’ve posted some fridge mini calendars I’ve made as a thank you gifts for my customers. But they were such a hit that I thought I will make a blog post, to show how to make them. Just a warning, it’s gonna be picture heavy 😉

I’ve bought these mini calendars on eBay while ago, but due to chronic fatigue I just couldn’t push myself to sit down and craft – maybe except for the cards once in a while. But I was wondering about customers gifts the other day and had a lightbulb moment – why not make cute magnetic fridge calendars?! Each calendar measures approx 2-7/8″ x 1-7/8″, and on their size, I’ve based my design.

The base for my calendar measures 3″x 4″ – here I’ve used Hello Honey. Designer Series Paper measures 2-7/8″x 2″ and Whisper White piece for stamping measures 1-1/2″x 2″. I rounded all the edges of my base, top edges of DSP and right top corner of Whisper White. I’ve used my Envelope Punch Board to do so, but you could use the corner rounder punch if you have one.

I stamped “a little something cute…” sentiment from Something To Say stamp set on my Whisper White pieces. Next, I stamped floral images from Flowering Fields stamp set. I just love this set! Don’t forget that this beautiful stamp set you can earn free with every £45 purchase during Sale-a-bration.


I’ve used Hello Honey for butterflies, Old Olive for stems and leaves, and Lost Lagoon and Calypso Coral for flowers. I’ve used ink pads as well as Stampin’ Markers to do my stamping. I have to say here, I love that all Stampin’ Up’s Designer Series Papers got all coordinating colours listed at the back of the paper pack. It makes creating so much easier if you don’t have to work out which colours to use. I also sponged stamped panels, so they stand out nicely from the background.

To embellish my Blackberry Bliss calendars I’ve used Silver 1/8″ Ribbon as it looked pretty neat on a dark background. But it didn’t work as good on the light one. So I cut “skinny” strips of cardstock in Lost Lagoon and Hello Honey, smooshed Versamark over them and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. I love this gentle shimmer.

I assembled my calendars using Tombow glue. I also added two strips of a magnet at the back of each one.

I really hope you like my little project and that you give them a go. Or maybe you have different ideas to use these little calendars for? I would love to hear from you!

Have a blessed day,

Extraordinary Faceted Gift Box Using Envelope Punch Board

Look at this beautiful faceted box I’ve made today! I absolutely love it! Feels so good to be able to do a little crafting at last. Some of you who follows me on facebook knows the reason I was absent, but some of you don’t, so I owe you an explanation. I had a relapse of Multiple Sclerosis. Yep I know :/ I couldn’t walk, didn’t feel my legs at all, same with arms and hands. I get to hospital and after nearly two weeks of painful injections and few doses of steroids I finally can walk a little. my hands are still a pain though. So while it’s really hard for me to stamp (but I will have a little card for you in a day or two) I’ve decided to try a little bit of papercrafting.  This idea isn’t mine. I followed a tutorial of Australian demo Leonie Schroder.


To make this box all you need is Envelope Punch Board, scoring board, Tombow glue, 6×6″ piece of cardstock and 6×6″ piece of DSP. For my box I’ve used stunning Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper from new Spring/Summer Catalogue and Baked Brown Sugar cs for the base. I know that the colour on DSP is Sahara Sand, but with Baked Brown Sugar they make very elegant combination.


First take your EPB and punch and score both pieces of cardstock at 3″ on all sides. Thats it! Now bring your scoring board.


Score at 3/8” (where the notch is) on each side. Remember you do exactly the same with DSP just for the teaching purposes I only show the cardstock. You wouldn’t see it clearly on DSP anyway.


Now you need to cut out these little corners. You can use scissors for that but as I mentioned my hands are affected so I can’t hold a scissors. I’ve decided to use square punch instead.


Barnish all of the score lines. And now the trickies part: assemble the box.


You need to adhere the flaps of one triangle from the top piece to the flaps in a gap between two triangles on the base. I hope that make sense if not check the picture below.


You can use any adhesive but I truly recommend using a tombow glue. It gives you more flexibility, while sticky strip adhere immediately so once it stick it holds, period. And trust me with this box you need that flexibility.


Leave last section (triangle) if the lid open, do not glue it as it’s gonna be your opening. Just tuck tabs in and they will hold your box closed. Also when you tie ribbon around the box make sure it holds the opening corner.

And Taa Daah! Your box is done! Easy hey?! 😉


Now just a little bit of decoration. And with such a bold deign on DSP less is more. I only used fancy folded Natural Chevron Ribbon.



Sentiment comes from Your Perfect Day Stamp Set. It’s brand new set from Spring/Summer Catalogue; same as DSP. And it’s absolutely gorgeous! I’ve stamped “cheers to the new mr & mrs” in Sahara Sand, punched it with Artisan Label  punch, and sponged the edges. That sponging came a little bit messy – my hands again – but I’ve decided to leave it this way (second time wouldn’t get better anyway)


I’ve layered the sentiment with piece of Baked Brown Sugar and attached it with dimensionals.

I really hope you like this project and that it tackle your creativity 🙂
