Just Add Ink Challenge #5

JUST ADD DIMENSION - Think out the square, 3D object.....
Yep I want to make a box but what type of box.....I have spend 2 days thinking and thinking it has been hurting a lot...... Did you know there is a ton of Templates and instructions for boxes. Well do you think I could decide, NO. So I went back to the beginning, My very first box was a pizza box, YEP I am going to make a pizza box. Last night I spend 2 hours watercolouring flowers and then cutting them and not liking them at all. So I kept it simple but happy with the colours Kraft, Baja Breeze, Basic Grey and Pink Pirouette. The stamp Set is Pocket Silhouettes and Vintage Labels (still available for FREE until the end of March).

Until 28 February, 2010, Stampin' Up!® will set aside $2 from the sale of every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set and donate it to the Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development Fund.
In order to sell as many of these sets as possible and hopefully raise lots of money I will be removing my demonstrator discount. That brings the stamp set including postage to $41.09.
Don't forget that on sale-a-bration is on now and this set can count towards your $100 order. If you order I {heart} hearts stamp set as part of an order over $100 will not need to pay for postage.
