No one likes to be sick…


…and I have the flu.  Bah Humbug and all that.

I’m feeling pretty sorry for myself, and although it took me nearly all day to get it done, I made a little something to cheer myself up.  It started when I had to go find a fresh box of tissue.  It was an ugly box.  I knew if I was going to get better, I needed more than an ugly box of tissues:

Maui Stamper Mosaic Madness Tissue Box sideThe new 2013-2014 catalog has LOTS of suites of products, and some of the suites have sweet bundles so that we can save a little extra.  The Mosaic theme has stamps, a TIEF, AND a punch.  Stampin’ Up! is known for coordination, and this catalog brings it to another level!

Now I just need to get healthy again so the creative process doesn’t take so long.

  1. LOVE how you used the new product suite! I have never thought to pretty up a Kleenex box before – what a great idea! Did you make an entirely new box for the Kleenex of did you cover an existing box in card stock?
