Keepsake Box

Hello again everyone,

For my project this week, I have designed a neat little keepsake box.  I thought this might be a nice idea that a Bride and Groom could use to store some of their memories from their special day.


I started by making a traditional box where the top of the box opened and thought that it needed just a little more flair so I also added a drawer for some extra storage.   I used a magnet which I sandwiched between the layers of paper to keep the top of the box closed and the drawer is based on a match box but just bigger.  Once I  had both made I glued them together and then wrapped DP around both the hide the seam.

Here is a closer look at the top which I decorated using some of my favorite Cheery Lynn dies.  A full list of what was used can be found below.  The rose was created using the Build A Flower #3 die.  I thought the distressing on the DP made the rose look so elegant for this special keepsake box : )


Here are the list of dies used:

B143 – Tangled Hearts
B193 – Hummingbird
B227 – Love (Set of 2)
B235 – You (Set of 2)
B238 – Love You More
B241 – Rose Leaf Strip
B264 – Build a Flower # 3
B294 – Always (Set of 2)
XL-3 – Square Inverted Scalloped

On your special day ….

Good evening to everyone,

I recently got some new Memory Box Dies and I could not wait to use them.

To see what they looked like I cut them all out in white and that got me thinking about a Black and White card.

I also used a new Miniature Rose die from Cherry Lynn Designs and a bow.  I am looking forward to using these dies a lot more.  Hope you like it.

Thanks for popping by and have a great evening,

Pretty in Purples…

I wa feeling a bit violet today and glancing through some of my paper I spied these lovely spring colors.  Considering it was such a rainy dreary day here in Nova Scotia I thought this might lift my spirits.  These cards were pretty simple to put together.  I used paper from S.E.I Couture which has some lovely pastel colours to work with.  One of the stamps I used was from Heartfelt Creations called Classic Message and the other was just an Inkadoo stamp I found in the dollar bin that I thought was really nice and one I could use a lot.


Here is another view of one of the cards.

Oh, I also used the deco fan punch from Martha Stewart which is one of my favorites.

For this card I used my double arch punch around the page from Martha Stewart.  I am really happy with the way these turned out.

Thanks for visiting.  Until next time!
