I love Monday mornings! How many of us can say that and actually mean it?
I can and do for a whole host of reasons. Firstly, as I run my own business, doing something I am passionate about, why wouldn’t I want to be doing it? Because most of what I do is based at home, it means I don’t have to worry about the weather and the trains running late, I just walk across from my front door to my workshop, which takes me an average of about 20 seconds, including unlocking; just a slight change from the 2 hour slog into the office I was doing last year.
But another reason that I like Mondays is that it means there is another Global Design Project Challenge waiting for me in my Inbox, which is a great way to get the creative juices running at the start of the week. This week the challenge is for a 3D Project – basically anything that isn’t a card.
I had great fun doing the stamping, trying out different colour combinations. Cutting the bugs out was not nearly as fiddly as I thought it would be – just remember to move the card, not the scissors. Then I stamped some ants running around and crawling up the box, tied the top with some of our Natural Trim and I was done.
I hope you enjoy this fun project. I think it would be a perfect box for the small boys in your life, who seem to relish collecting bugs.
Of course, as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I am lucky to get all my products at a discount, which does mean that my money stretches a lot further than it would otherwise. Yes, I run this as a business, but I know as many people who are Demonstrators just so they get a discount off their stash, as ‘Business’ Demos.
