Magazine Style Storage Box - Ideal for DSP Stacks - Video Tutorial with Stampin' Up Tempting Tulips

I love today's project, it is both practical and pretty - win win win.

You may have noticed that the new DSP stacks from Stampin' Up no longer come with the pages stuck together. 

Great - no longer do you have to worry about ripping one when you tear it off but storage is a little harder.

Step in this gorgeous magazine style storage box. 

I have decorated the box using Tranquil Tulips - this set is causing quite a stir and I can absolutely see why - it is so pretty!

This is a hostess set - which ordinarily means that you have to spend £150 or host a workshop with sales over £150 in order to get your hands on it. 

A lot of you have been in touch to ask if there was an easier way to get your hands on it - or if I might consider making it one of my thank you gifts.

Well - you asked and I listened - shop with me in July and this stamp set will be winging its way to you along with another little something in early August as a Thank you gift from me. 

There is no catch, it isn't a competition, everybody that shops with me in July will recieve a set!

I normally keep exactly what I am going to send as a Thank You gift a secret but as so many of you asked for this set, I didn't want anybody to miss out. 

Back to the box - well it is a really good size, mine is holding 4 pretty full DSP stacks right now but there is probably room for at least another one, if not two more. 

I have made some very cute little dividers to help me keep each stack separated. It also gave me the perfect excuse to try out the new tab punch - doesn't it make them look so professional.
