Little Spring Gift Boxes

Hello friends, I have a post today with my project I made for

I am so feeling Spring (feeling not
that I have been having fun using gorgeous digital
products from Crafty Secrets.

There are many, many  wonderful digtal papers
that print beautifully!!  I decided to make a little box stack
using these a few of these papers.

 The bigger box on the bottom was made using a digital paper from 
this CD is packed full of wonderful vintage goodness.
You will me using several images from this Cd next month!

The smaller box was made with a digital paper from 
digital Sewing Papers, this has a collection of 34 papers to choose from!

Both boxes were constructed using my 
WeR Memory Keepers gift box punch board.

I added some newly purchased hemp twine and an adorable little gift tag

I was asked recently about what printer I use to print my digitals.
Nothing glamorous, let me tell you, it is and OLD Epson Stylus NX415.
I have another new printer sitting here in it's box never opened.
Two years ago, my hubby overheard (or so he thought) a phone conversation
I was having with my sister that I needed a new printer.
It wasn't that I needed one, I had just found one that prints 12 x 12 papers
and it was recommended for scrap booking.  
So he bought me a new printer for Christmas that year.  
I guess I should hook it up and at least have it as a back!

Mark your calenders, as

You make the prettiest things with your Crafty Secrets stuff! It does print beautifully on your old printer. When I got my new computer I had to get a new printer as my old HP wouldn't work with it The new printer doesn't hold a candle to my old one. Very frustrating. It was nice of your hubby to get you a new one, though.

Beautiful Diane! Lovely project, now what are you going to put in the boxes? :)

Lisa said...

Wow, this is gorgeous, Diane!! The boxes are a gift themselves...they don't need anything inside!! The tag is so beautiful!! What a presentation this is...someone will be very happy to receive this!! I don't even want to talk printers...I bought a new one because the ink for the old one cost as much as a new printer!! Not kidding!! Tried to hook it up and it wouldn't work with my laptop. Took it back, got another, different brand, same thing. Tried to hook the old one back up and no such luck. I hate with a capital H Windows 8.1. I've had nothing but problems with it. So at the moment, I'm printerless. So anyhoo...gorgeous project my friend!! Have a great day :)
