UStamp with Dawn and Friends Blog Hop!


Welcome to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! World Showcase Blog Hop.  Glad you decided to join us.  There are twenty three stops for you to make along the way.  This is stop #11.  You'll have from Friday thru Sunday to hop, so there is plenty of time to see them all!  If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Tracey Old's box and card set. Didn't you love how she made that box using the Envelope Die??

 If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the super projects we have for you.
The project I am featuring for the hop is a set of coasters with matching gift box.  You are going to be amazed at how fun and easy these are to make.  The best part of the hop of course is there are FREE PDF's for all the projects you see on the blog hop!  Yeah!
After looking through my Stampin' Success, (which is a monthly magazine for demos)  I knew I just had to make some.
Here's the full set of four.  Now if you want to make them super simple just leave off the initial.  Items used to make the coasters:  Big Shot, Clear Circle Die, Alphabet Die, SU DSP Beyond the Garden, SU Cork Sheets, SU Permanent Adhesive Sheets, SU Medium Window Sheets.
Here's a view of the set of coasters in the gift box.  What a great gift for a friend or family member.
and one final shot of the box open so you can see how pretty the inside looks with the coasters in it.  Thanks you so very much for hopping along with us this week-end....and.....here is the GOOD PART!
