Fabricate Friday – Lilac Box

Happy Friday to you.  This is the last project of the “Bonnie Inspired” series that I have been sharing with you for the past month.  I really have to say that I had a lot of fun replicating the projects that my customer Bonnie from Vancouver Island has shared with me.  Even though we have never met, she has made an impression on me.  I hope that she feels the same.  It’s very nice to meet people who share the same love of paper crafting.  Bonnie is very talented in the way of making paper flowers and I am so honoured to have one of her works of art.  So, thank you one last time Bonnie for the inspiration and the friendship.  If ever I am in your neighbourhood I shall look you up for a lesson on how to make those beautiful flowers.

My project for today is a wee box, that is so sweet.  Before I get into the project I do want to make mention that I really appreciate all my customers and the folks that have deemed me as their team leader.  I am very blessed to be making some strides in this industry.  Stampin’ Up! has incentive trips for their demonstrators to try to earn and I want to say that I have been trying very hard to earn the next incentive trip.  My last real holiday was in 1999 when I went to England for a week.  For the last 18 years I have just done a few road trips around Canada and just slightly over the border to the States.  The furthest south I have been is Portland,  the furthest east I have been is Vulcan, AB (look it up…it’s a real place for Trekkers) North would be Edmonton and West would be Victoria BC.  I have dreamed about going to Greece.  It’s on my bucket list.  I mentioned in my news letter recently that the stars have aligned a little for me this year with having some amazing gals who are on my team who have not only joined Stampin’ Up! but also have advanced in title.  Stampin’ Up rewards leadership and sales goals with special points called Flex Points.  This point system is how one earns the incentive trip.  The trip takes 160,000 points.  I have 93,000 (ish).  I have until September 30 to make up the rest of the points and I am going to hustle.

For the next 3 months, I will be releasing time sensitive product based online classes.  I am hoping to give as much value to my classes as possible with exclusive video tutorials, FREE Paper supplies & materials to make a whole bunch of cards and the Stamp Set & Die with a new ink pad (substitutions can be made) mailed right to your door!  Watch for details and more information the beginning of July.  ALSO big Monthly VIP GIVEAWAYS… July customers will be entered into a draw to win A BRAND NEW STAMPARATUS!  The following summer months will have amazing giveaways as well.  A whole lot of things happening this summer so don’t miss out on my “Stampin’ ~ FOR GREECE ~ Summer”.

    Hi Susanne,
    Cutest box ever! I never thought of making a little box for the perfume – spoiler alert Pacifica no longer makes the solid perfume BUT they do sell a cute skinny roll-on purse size bottle. Hmm may need to design a new box. Note I have no association with Pacifica – just love their product. Glad you like the scent.

    in terms of geography Gibsons is on the Sunshine Coast not Vancouver Island. No worries – everyone makes that mistake as the only way to get here is by BC Ferries or float plane. We are 10.5 nautical miles from West Vancouver so we sure feel like we’re on an island..

    Cheers – Bonnie
