Here's a sneak peek of  both the bud and the open one! :)

 I really love these! So, I've got 3 colors and 2 different versions for sale now in packs of 4 and 6!! You can see them all HERE in the "Handmade" category of my shop!

Thank you so much for your support and encouragement:) It seriously means so much that you come back and help support my little shop. It has become my love and my only source of income. If you refer your friends and family who you think would be interested in any of my products, it would be so very much appreciated!!! So again, thank you so much!

Sale! Sale! Sale!! 3 days only!!

Hello everyone!

You're INVITED to a 3 day sales event!! Please read this post thoroughly:)

"The Jule Box Shop"!! For this 3 day event you can save 30% off your total purchase! Shipping is always separate!

I'm hosting this 3 day event and it is open to all US and International customers!!

"TJBS" 3 day sale is coming up this weekend only!! From Friday thru Sunday (Midnight to midnight PST), January 17th, 18th and 19th of this new year 2014!!

Everything from every post listing at "The Jule Box Shop"! From Die cut sets to charms! From laces to kits and everything handmade too!!! EVERYTHING!! No other special will be valid during these dates, only the 30% off sale!
**IMPORTANT: no refunds, exchanges or credits on anything.  ALL SALES FINAL** Shipping is separate.

Since my blog shop is not a traditional online shop, I do not have the luxurious benefit of adjusting the paypal buttons with one easy command (I would have to change every single paypal button), so they all will stay the same with the same prices listed on each button. The only way I could possibly do this where it's easiest for me is this....
~Your total price will be adjusted once I receive your order via email. I will deduct the 30% off your total order.
~Once your order is received and adjusted, the shipping fee will be figured then deducted from the 30%. I will package, mail then refund you the difference. I'll do all the footwork for you!

Example: You place your total order of $100.00, 30% off this total brings it down to $70.00 leaving a $30 balance I owe you. Using a medium flat rate box to pack your goodies will cost $12.35.  $30.00-$12.35= $17.65 I will refund back to you the day I ship off your items!! The pricing and figuring will be written on your paypal packing slip enclosed in your package and signed off by me!! If your shipping cost is more than the amount you're saving, I will email you a shipping invoice for the difference explaining the costs, so please check the email you're using to make your purchase. Thanks!!

and now......

I need to make room for new goodies!! "The Jule Box Shop" is a lil' shop but you'll benefit from this because not only are you saving money  from the sale but if you've shopped with me before, you'll know that my prices are always below retail, so you will be saving more because my already low prices are not changing one bit!!! So you see? You'll benefit all the way around!!

So take advantage of the 3 day sale this weekend and support this lil' shop. I appreciate you!! Thanks so much!

 Please share my sale on your FB, YT, Twitter and Pinterest, anywhere!!

How to get to my here!

Have a fabulous day and I'll see you soon! Please let me know if you have any questions! :)

They make some of the best products of paper and embellishments! I use something Prima in almost every single project!! No, seriously, I do!! :)

Shabby Burlap, Doily and Lace Banner!!

Hello everyone! 

Just sharing a banner I made for my studio:) Recently I made a "SALE" banner for my friend Paula's store at "Elm Street Antiques" to put in a corner with items that are 30% off!! (If you live near or are passing by Hermiston, Oregon sometime you are welcome to stop by and you'll find it a treat to walk into this place!).

It was very simple......I think the only complicated thing was cutting the letters out by hand:) After gluing them down, I had wished I would have stitched it, but I'm not that good at hand stitching so it's really ok!  I used some fabric strips, my handmade tea-stained muslin and some of my laces from my shop!

Using left over burlap, fabric and laces I decided to create a banner for me....I've always wanted to make one for the studio, so I did!! Here's the video of my sharing it then pictures to follow!

Thanks for watching! :)

I really love the white, creams, browns and pops of's so shabby chic and adding the textures of the laces and doilies and then cardboard...I think make great layers of texture! I hope it inspires you to create! Here's my shabby banner!!:)

Mixed Media "Us Girls" Prima layout!

Hello and Happy New Year to you all! 

I've got a 12x12 canvas layout to share today. I was going to submit it for the Prima build-a-page for December, but I sent this gift out late and I didn't want to spoil the surprise for my BFF Laurie, so I couldn't submit it, BUT, I could still share it with you all! 

My BFF Laurie is on Youtube and she's got a cool online shop on "Artfire", please visit her shop and YT channel!! You'll be inspired when you see her projects!!

I love this LO! Not a perfect picture...our hair was everywhere.... well Laurie's and Melissa's was, but eyes were squinty and my chin was tucked down so I had a double chin!! LOL.....but the sentiment and memory of it was sweet, that weekend was so fun and that's why I used it!

Prima shares a sketch every beginning of every month for anyone to join in and submit their project, here's the link for December and the sketch below!

This is my LO! The product list is at the end of this post.

Aren't these the cutest glasses!!!?

I try to remember to add a personal note on my projects for the person who is receiving them because it's so sentimental to me when I make something for someone! So, I add white card stock to some of the same designer paper i used on the project, distress the edges and use some liquid glue to tack it on!
