Create Preview Project – Flower Shop Card Box



Wow!  Can you believe it?  Today is the LAST DAY of the Early Bird Special for Create with Connie and Mary Summer 2011 Edition!  Over the past two weeks each member of our Senior Design Team had a FREE special project and tutorial to share…I'm the LAST one!.  I am SOOO excited to be sharing my project AND BLOG CANDY…a FREE subscription to Create with Connie and Mary!!!  See details below!  And…did you like our SURPRISE GUEST DESIGNERS?  Aren't they a fabulous edition?  You can find a list of all EIGHT of the designers joining Mary and I this Summer Edition over on Create with Connie and Mary!


What do you get for your Create subscription fee?  You get a new Stampin' Up! ONLY project EVERY DAY Sunday through Friday (with FULL PHOTO TUTORIALS) and a fun challenge on Saturday to join and have the opportunity to win prizes at the end of the 5 weeks.  All 5 senior designers will share their creations using the sketch or color challenge!


BUT, today is the LAST DAY we will be offering a special subscription rate of $24.95 for 5 weeks of daily ideas using the stamps and products in the Summer 2011 Mini Catalog!  This is $5 off the regular 5 week price of $29.95.  Early Bird Pricing ends tonight, May 14th at 11 pm EST!  So DON’T DELAY!  Head on over to the Create with Connie and Mary site to subscribe or click on the right of my sidebar to purchase your subscription!



Card boxes are so much fun to make and the recipient LOVES to receive a stash of cards!  I turned Stampin' Up!'s Hello Blossoms single stamp into a Flower Shop on the front of my box!  And I made 4 all-occasions cards with decorated envelopes to go in it!


I’m not going to go into a lot of details on my project because, if you head over to the Create with Connie and Mary site, you will have access to a FREE FULL TUTORIAL with more photos on how to make my project.  This will give you an idea of the type of projects and how we present the tutorials to our subscribers.


EVERY project comes with a step-by-step tutorial (like I’ve put together for this project).  This makes it easy for you to print off the material to use either personally or in your classes!



So…do you like it?  Isn't it a FUN project?  OK…I know…you want to know how to get the FREE subscription, right?




Leave a comment HERE on my site for a chance to win a FREE SUBSCRIPTION to Create with Connie and Mary Summer 2011 Edition!  During this two week Preview Period, we gave away SIX FREE SUBSCRIPTIONS…I'm the LAST ONE today! 


So…here is what you need to do…


First, leave me a comment on THIS blog to be entered into my BLOG CANDY


Second, head on over to Create to Connie and Mary and download my FREE TUTORIAL for the Hello Blossoms Flower Shop Card Box!


Third, subscribe to Create with Connie and Mary Summer Edition during our Early Bird Special and receive $5 off the regular subscription price of $29.95.  That is $24.95 for 5 FABULOUS weeks of daily exclusive ideas!  And the tutorials stay up until the following Summer Edition starts so you can refer back to them as needed!


That's it!  Hope you enjoy my project and make one for yourself!
