I know this fabric is retired (Tea for Two) BUT you can still get it in the Clearance Rack so hurry and nab some before it's gone.

I found this tutorial on Pinterest and HAD to make it.

I am completely in love with the High Tide Designer Series Paper!!!
hello sailor close photo 201404Artisan2acopy_zpsdde018b0.jpg
I'm also super in love with belly bands on gift boxes.

This belly band has some small details that make a big difference.  For instance, the scallop top on the blue paper...  This is the negative image from the Large Scallop Edgelit.  It's PERFECT!  I also made sure the placement of the fish was perfect.  A bit much?  Nah.

Also, I stamped and cut out the little flag from the "hello, sailor" stamp because it needed a pop of color.

I really love how this box turned out.

Paper:  Whisper White, High Tide DSP
Ink: Calypso Coral, Early Espresso
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Large Scallop Edgelit, Silver Baker's Twine, Wooden Elements Embellishments, Paper Snips, Liquid Glue, Sticky Strip, Dimensionals

I also thought a simple little card was in order.

There's nothing crazy or difficult about this card.  Maybe that's why I like it so much?  I just distressed the edges with a bone folder and squished and crumpled the edges where I felt it needed some love.

To get your rhinestone blue, simply color the entire rhinestone with a Sharpe.

Sometimes you just need to recreate a cute stamped image with paper, glitter, and twine.
 photo 201404Artisan1acopy_zps2c8c369c.jpg
Know what I mean?

Is this card super simple?

Yes.
 photo 201404Artisan1bcopy_zpsb31d12dd.jpg
Is there a sentiment on the outside?
 photo 201404Artisan1ccopy_zps9d5bf1e6.jpg
No.  I think the present speaks for itself.  It says,"Hi, you're getting a present."

Am I right?

Are you dying to open the card?
 photo 201404Artisan1dcopy_zps57e41039.jpg
You bet.
 photo 201404Artisan1bbcopy_zps1ba0ec69.jpg Mission accomplished.

Did you notice that I've been updated my blog?

I have been.  It's not completely updated.  It's kinda a bit ugly and mis-matchy still.  Hang tight.

It takes forever.

It hasn't been updated for 5-6 years so...

It's time.

I've told you before how I'm not really a fan of flowers but it's hard to resist making them with the flower punches.  Just punch, crumple, and assemble.  Easy!

Does anyone else thing of Slurpees when they see Yippee-Skipee?

Just me.

Anyway...
