The key to my color blocking technique?  Don’t toss the removable centers of your stamps.  They make versatile stamps, too!  The “stamp” used to color block the sentiment on the box is the “throw away” center of the Elementary Elegance frame stamp (available Jan. 24 as part of the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Promotion).


  • Everything (cards and envies) fits neatly in the bitty box. The belly band on the box slips on and off for easy access to the cards and envelopes.
  • Both the box and envelopes were created with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and the Bitty Box & Envelopes Bigz XL Die.  Use the Extended Premium Crease Pad to get clean scores.

  1. Mary,

    I am watching all your one minute to wow videos, but this video has no picture. Nor can I go back and rewind. Just thought I’d let you know.
