Handmade Christmas??

If I had my way, I'd have oodles and oodles of time to stamp-out and craft-up each and every Christmas gift I give, but somehow time has gotten away from me again this year, and this might just be the only hand-stamped-crafted gift I'm giving for Christmas 2009. The ensemble pictured consists of a covered PTI notepad and box full of hand stamped labels for my friend who owns and operates King Bee Apiary, thus KBA.

Stamps are from Cornish Heritage Farm and Papertrey Ink. Colors are inspired by this awesome tag box tutorial by Val Stangle on SCS. The box was made using Val's tutorial with a change-up in dimensions to suit my labels.

Here's a shot of the box "half open", so you can see the acetate sleeve. Don't be intimidated by the acetate sleeve...just read the tutorial and follow Val's instructions--easy peasy!

Thanks to Val for a great tutorial and color combination! Hoping to be back tomorrow with a TCP Tuesday sketch card and my Christmas cards...
