Cloud 9 January Blog Hop

I have an honour to join the talented girls at the Cloud9 blog today, for a monthly blog hop. Woot woot!
You know I luv me some WPlus9!! Here's the provided inspiration... can you say SPLENDID??
I'm on a huge home/table decoration kick these days, not sure if I'm just nesting or it's one of these trends that come to me in waves, but I'll take that regardless, thank you very much.

I used the Super Star stamp set and a Silhouette cut file, to design this little gable box, for a treat and whatnot:

The stars were white embossed, the sentiments stamped in brown and black. Banner Trio die was used to cut one of my favourite shapes of all times - double ended banner.

I decorated the box with seam binding, brown baker's twine and a star leftover from Christmas packaging. Got to love re-purposing :)

We should have just arrived home from vacation by the time this post launches, but I'm sure to be fed up after a three-day-long return trip... I'm looking forward to what you've got to say about this little project, when I wake up from a hopefully restful night in my own comfy bed :D
