MORE Curvy Keepsake Boxes...an apple, pig, pumpkin, turkey, jack-o-lantern and Christmas ornament WITH MORE TO COME!!

WOW!!! I am IN LOVE with the new Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die in the new Holiday Catalog!  I just can't stop making things with it....and I have so many other things I should be doing...need to be doing!  Like getting ready for my workshops that are coming up, working on some SWAP cards, doing a little scrapbooking...BUT NO!!!! I AM COMPLETELY OBSESSED and here is why!

Could this apple be any cuter!  I added some leaves from the Bird Builder Punch and the ABC's are made with the Little Letters Thinlits Die.

For the pig you simple use your circle punches!  The nostrils are made with Basic Pearls that I colored with my Blendabilities and the pupil of the eyes are candy dots!

A basic pumpkin...but wouldn't it be a beautiful at each setting on your Thanksgiving table.  The sentiment is from the For All Things stampset and the leaves are stamped in VersaMark with the Fall Fest stampset and then cut with the Fun Fall Framelits Dies.

The turkey just might be my favorite.  I used the Feathers framelits to cut out three colors of leaves....Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey.  I used the triangle punch to make the nose and the heart punch for the wattle.  Again I used candy dots for the pupils of the eyes.  The sentiment is from the Gratitude For Days stamp set and the acorn is from the Autumn Wooden Elements set.

As an afterthought...I should have dry embossed the feathers!

Wouldn't this Jack-O-Lantern be cute to give to the students in your kids classroom?   I think my nine year will be able to make them herself.  She already knows how to use my Big Shot...I just need to teach her how to heat emboss that ghost which is from the Fall Fest stamp set and cut out with the Fun Fall Framelits Dies.  The BOO is stamped with the Blockhead Letters stamp set.

This Christmas ornament is so nice....kind of elegant with all the shine and glitter!  The JOY is from the Trendy Trims stamp set.  I heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  I then cut it out with the oval ornament in the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits die and I cut another out of a scrap piece of Silver Foil Sheet!  I then added a new embellishment from the Holiday Catalog....All Is Calm Snowflakes.

I still have in the works...a reindeer, a horse, a cow, a chicken...and wouldn't a baseball, basketball, tennis or bowling ball be cute!  I have to put it AWAY for a few days...and get busy with some other projects...but STAY TUNED!  There's more to come!!


  1. The possibilities with this die are endless.. Thanks for sharing. Great job!

  2. How did you attach the feathers to the back? The turkey is just too cute!!

    1. Hi Dixie...I attached the first layer of leaves to the box with score tape and then the rest I attached with dimensionals. I am finding that the score tape is stronger and doesn't come apart in warm or cold weather. I will always use my red sticky tape for ribbon though!

  3. Where is the "Trendy Trims" stamp set from? I can't find it in the Holiday Mini or Regular Stampin Up catalog...is it even a Stampin Up stamp set?Barb


  5. i LOVE them all, but I REALLY love the turkey.. Is there a chance we could see the back? Did you cover where the feathers meet? or just leave it. I am doing this project with my 6 year old grandson for Thanksgiving.. can't wait!!

  6. The Cristmas porjects mentioned and picured above look incredible! I think that you are so creaive and smart! May God Bless You!

  7. I truly value this superb post that you have accommodated us. I guarantee this would be helpful for a large portion of the general population. Black pig backpack
