Stampin' Up! Farmer's Market Lidded Box Tutorial

I love DSP. It’s a well known fact that I’m a paper girl. But that doesn’t mean I love all paper patterns.

I really want to like all of the patterns on the Farmer’s Market paper, however I don’t (and you know me and my honesty). There are 4 that really don’t do it for me. But that means there are 8 that do! Whoop whoop!

I’ve always maintained that if I like half the pack then I’ll buy it. Well, I like 2/3rds of it, so I’m on a winner right there!

So today’s project is a simple lidded box, but showing off 2 of those gorgeous patterns that are very me. The Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla spots and the Blackberry Bliss and Vanilla gingham.

I love how they work prettily with toning ribbons too. Thick Baker’s Twine is definitely my star this year, but I love the new In Colour ribbon too.

With the Cottage Greetings stamp set being used on the Extra Large Oval punch out, I love how these look and I hope you enjoy my video showing them too.

    I for one appreciate your honesty. And truth be told, it is rare that I have loved every single piece of DSP in every set. You made me realize that 1/2 or more is great. And sometimes I surprise myself. The Best Year Ever DSP from Sale-A-Bration had a sheet I thought looked awful until I used it to make an adorable French fry box. Voila, I was in love. So, I try to keep an open mind.

    Hi Sam
    I like most of the papers but I must admit the Bohemian paper is not my cup of tea. The patterns are too big and bold. Thank you for all your lovely daily projects.

    Hi Sam

    This is such a perfect little box. The lid fits so beautifully. Looking forward to the 6 x 6 projects!! Thanks for all you share. xx

    You are always honest Sam and say when you don’t like all the papers. Love the cute boxes and I will use my DSP shares to make something similar to yours.
    Looking forward to next week’s tutorials, you are so inspiring.

    Hi Sam,

    Love my “Daily dose of Donald Demonstrations”. What joy! You are so conscientious!! Who else is as generous with time, inspiration and honesty?

    Big thank you and every blessing,

  11. I love your videos and have pinned many of them. I do have one suggestion.
    I have trouble understanding and hearing you. Could you please try to speak louder and slower?
