Shabby Chic Trinket Box

Hello everyone, for today I will share with you a trinket box I made for my swap partner Wendy, we joined a swap in the Chic Craftique FB group. One of my favorite things to create is off the page art, from decorating boxes and frames to altering clocks and mousetraps. For this swap we had to make a Trinket Box. 

I bought a plain wooden box at AC Moore, painted it, glued decorative papers to it, heat embossed it, added flowers, pearls, lace and some bling. I used the papers from Authentique's "Luxe" collection and Echo Park"s "Be Mine" collection.

I had so much fun putting it all together, I really hope she likes it.

Enjoy...








 Have a great day!!!

Hello Summer Card

Hi everyone, today I'm here with a quick post for my DT project for Timeless Twine. This week I decided to make a card, I used "Hello Summer" stamp set from Bella Creationz and "Raspberry Lemonade" twine. The patterned papers and the bee's are from a couple of Echo Park's paper collections from the last year or two. 

The banner die set is from Craftin Desert Diva's, the pink banner is actually the smaller banner cut in half which I then adhered to the top and bottom backside of the larger die, to make it appear longer. I put foam tape behind most of the layers, cut out some photo corners and voila, the card is complete!

Happy Birthday Box of Letters

Howdy, back with a project for my DT post at Timeless Twine. We were to create a project using the colors of the inspiration photo posted below....blue, orange, red and yellow. July is a very busy month around here for birthdays, one of them being my husband's. So I came up with the idea of making this birthday box "instead of a card" for heartfelt letters from myself and the kids, they are light enough that I made a twine handle to hold the box. 
 
I bought the svg file from svgcuts.com "Country Market", in the video Mary gives the option to add lights to the arrow, in this case I did not. The twine that was used is the Cherry Red, Pumpkin Orange, Lemonade Yellow and Aqua Blue. The papers used are from K&Company and the brads and eyelets are from Recollections.
 
Enjoy...
