It’s been a busy day so I’m a bit late with today’s blog. At Step Inside tomorrow it will be our last one until January. We’ve made lanterns to decorate the tables, and gifts to give to the patrons. I’ve also made some small decorative boxes to give to all the helpers (with rather nice chocolates inside).

Mini curvy keepsakes boxes.

These have been made using the Stampin’ Up! Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Die. It’s a fantastic little die and fits perfectly on a piece of 6″x6″ paper or card. I’ve used up some of my old Stampin’ Up Christmas DSP, but they would be great for any season. I can see me making some of these for Valentine’s Day treats next year. It comes with several small tag dies too.

Our son and his girlfriend are staying with us over Christmas and I got both of them helping me to put them together. Teresa did the very neat bows. They live in Portsmouth and Michael is doing a second Master’s Degree in preparation for going on to a PhD.

I’ve got everything ready for Step Inside tomorrow – Christmas dress, necklace made of fairy lights, Christmas tree earrings, Christmas Deeley Boppers, and some clip on decorations to go in my hair….. Nadolig Llawen i bawb! xx


  1. Hi Camilla, Sorry I am late visiting. I’m doing flying visits round desks, as I’ve been AWOL for so long and wanted to catch up and wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Oh I do love the little boxes – I think that box size would be perfect for little gift boxes at my daughter’s wedding next year. Have a lovely week Heather xx #31
