Hello again and welcome to the Social Stamping Blog Host where I am joined by a group of talented crafters from around Australia and New Zealand.
The group was started by my lovely friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator Kelly Kent as a way of keeping connected, creating and sharing while we are all being socially distant.
You may have arrived from seeing Nicole's gorgeous creation but if you started here, click the 'Next' button at the bottom of this post to continue hopping.
My favourite class this year was the Box Of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin Kit. With many people in Isolation and Lockdown, Stampin' Up! created a special Paper Pumpkin Kit which was also available here in Australia. The kit came with extra products to decorate the box and and then fill with treats and goodies to gift to someone. My ladies came to class with all the yellow/sunshine-themed goodies they had collacted and we filled our boxes after we had made the cards in the kit. We had so many laughs and such good fun!
I really loved the idea of sending someone a 'Box of Sunshine' to brighten their day. After I had gifted my box, I realised that there were lots of others who were deserving of a little sunshine in their life, so I started to make mini boxes of sunshine!
I have made various outer decorations and used whatever papers I could find in my stash. For this one I used a sponge brayer to colour the box and then I used used a very old mask for the sunburst which I sponged with Daffodil Delight. For the sentiment, I used a piece of Shimmery White cardstock which I sponged with Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral and then splashed some drops of water to create a textured background for the sentiment.

I am still enjoying making up boxes and thinking of new treats I can put in them.
