I have combined two awesome items from the 2018 Occasions Catalog for today. Sadly both products are retiring. I truly love the Lots To Love Box Framelit. It is very versatile. And it makes a super cute little box. I have given it a more masculine look today and paired it with products from the True Gentleman Suite.
I used the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper for the Box and Belly Band. For the box, you cut two of the box shapes and adhered them together. The belly band is a strip of coordinating DSP that measures 8 X 2 1/2. I dry fit it and then creased it to fit snugly. It is only for decoration so I did not have to worry about allowing room for it to be slid off of the box.
The sentiment is an adorable stamp from the set Truly Tailored. It is punched out with the matching Tailored Tag Punch. The punch is the only item from this project that is carrying over. And I am thrilled. I do love my punches!! The blue punched shape is actually cut with my paper snips. Because the actual punched sentiment is all straight lines, it is very easy to simple cut the background piece. I adhered the punched piece to the Night of Navy and then simple trim around it.
I love the added texture and depth the Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon brings to the box. I wish it was carrying over, but at least it is still currently available.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you like the masculine version of this box.The Lots To Love Box Framelits are definitely a keeper. All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Another Paper Pumpkin Special: The March PP was so popular due to the special gift that it sold out. So Stampin’ Up! has offered a great deal to replace that. New Subscribers who sign up before April 10, will receive April and May for half price. So 2 months for the price of 1. A great deal. Use my link HERE, and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418
It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I would love to have you join my team. A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first. Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early. For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator. Of course, the discount helps! If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
