Summer Home

I made a couple of these stationery boxes at Christmas time, using different Simply Scrappin kits. These were designed by Jackie Topa, and I watched a great video tutorial by Dannie Graves before I attempted my first one. They look like they should be difficult, but were pretty easy to put together and looked really nice (I think) when they were completed. This first one, with the now retired Summer Home Simply Scrappin' kit uses great "in colors", baja breeze, kiwi kiss and riding hood red, in addition to chocolate chip.
I also used some of the printed paper in the kit to make a cute pin wheel for the bag decoration. I learned how to do that on Sandy Hancock's blog.
You sure can learn a lot from all the great demonstrator's out there who are willing to share.
