Hello everyone,

A few more samples using this gorgeous suite.

Will be making these in class in May the 3rd Saturday 2017.
Stay tuned as there will be more samples to come of this fantastic suite, I just can't get enough of this.

I may even plan a full day class of this set yet as I have so many ideas to share with you.
If you would be interested just drop me an email as I would need a certain number to make it viable.

I would just be supervising the workshop and helping as needed.

Those who purchase the beginner bundle will need to pay a $20 fee for their class. This is still half my normal fee for classes.

Hello Everyone,

Trish Forward here with another project to share with you today.

I am so excited to introduce you to a fantastic pre - release of the stunning "Eastern Palace suite Bundles" that will be available to customers  from the 1st May - 31st May 2017.

This is just a stunning suite and I have had so much fun playing with this.
You really need to order these bundles as they are incredible.
There are two bundles available to customers,

I will see if i can post these here today.
 Didn't seem to want to co-operate with me today so posted it on my Facebook page for you to view.

I will also be emailing these out to customers today as well.

So if you live in Australia and don't have a demonstrator and want to order of have a copy of these two incredible bundles just email me today and I will send you a copy.

I have been so busy since posting here last that I just have to share with you what I have been up to before I share the project with you today. I will try and keep it brief for you.

Attended onstage in Sydney. Awesome came home with lots of free goodies there.

Attended a stamping day with a lovely lot of ladies in the lovely Pam Jorgenson's team and downline team members. What an incredible day that was. Will share our projects at a later date. A big thank you to Maxine, Pam and Shelley for sharing her onstage display projects with us.

Attended a market day in Horsham. great day.

Eastern Palace DSP for sides of box lid 7/8" x 4 1/8"

Layers for top of box
Very vanilla A4 thick 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
A4 cardstock Tranquil tide 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"
A4 Cardstock Fresh Fig 4" x 4"

To Assemble your box
Take your piece of very vanilla cardstock measuring 3 1/2 x 3 1/2" and layer your thinlets using the medallion flower outer petal shape and the 2nd die in from outer thinlet, centering your dies on your piece of cardstock and run through your big shot using the base plate and precision plate or the thinlet die adapter plates,either way will work.
Fold and burnish all scorelines on both base and Lid pieces or you can work on them separately if you wish.
You can adhere your dsp pieces now if you are confident enough to do it or you can cut up your scorelines as follows:
On the box base base cut and wedge to scoreline on left hand and right hand then working on opposite side do the same. Put tombo glue or fast fuse on all four flaps and fold up sides of box to line up and form corner of your box, repeat until all four corners have been adhered. Now adhere your dsp for those less confident to do so in previous step.

For your Lid:
Cut up first and second scorelines to the 2nd scoreline and take out a small wedge on either side on the right hand side, do the same for your left hand side. Then turn your card to the opposite and side and repeat the previous step. Now take a small wedge out of the longer pieces either side just to the first scoreline. These will be turned in later to reinforce your box lid.
Next, add tombo glue or fast fuse to the tabs and fold in and adhere to inside of sides of your box making sure you line up the corners. Repeat for all four corners.
Next add tombo glue or fast fuse to your longer pieces and fold inside your box lid, this will reinforce your box lid. Now you can add your dsp pieces for those less confident to do in the previous step.
Your box is almost complete. Just a few more steps to go.
next take your 4" x 4" piece of Fresh Fig cardstock and adhere to your box lid, centering it.
Next place dimensionals on your 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock and place on top.
For the next layer of very vanilla we are going to do some stamping on here first.
Stamp sentiment in centre of flower "enjoy today" in Dapper Denim ink, then stamp the circle of dots in Fresh Fig ink next stamp stretched scrolly heart design in Tranquil Tide ink. (this was the best way I could think of describing this stamp.)
Next add some small gold stickers to the corners.
Next place dimensionals on back and adhere to Tranquil tide layer. Using glue dots adhere tranquil tide tassels to top, take a piece of gold metallic thread and tie double bows to gold rings at the top of tassels. Now make a small gold bow from 1/8" gold ribbon and adhere with a glue dot to bottom section of top Layer Your box is now complete. Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also made other variations as well.
See photos below for those.
won't let me post images here so will put in another post.

I will be doing  video tutorials next week for this and the matching card. I think I will do it in two parts as it would make it a very long video if I did it all in one and I will also show how I did the other variations for the top as well.

I will post matching card next week too.

Sorry this post was so lengthy but I have been away and wanted to share my news as well as the directions for the box in as much detail as I could. For future posts like this I will try and do the videos first then just give the measurements and stuff you need to complete and you can refer to the video for assembly.

Bye for now.
