Craft Hoarders Anonymous – Challenge #20 Box it Up!

Craft Hoarders Anonymous – Challenge #20 Box it Up!

Hi there fellow Craft Hoarders!  I am once again super excited to be back  for my second guest design spot for  Gloria Stengel’s Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge.  Today is all about keeping true to the theme of this lovely blog!  Everything that I used for my project was from my hoarded stash of supplies 🙂  There are certain things that I hate to part with like some of my paper, ornate vintage embellishments but when I manage to create something like this Vintage Keepsake Box it actually makes it sooo much easier! I think this lovely little box is just perfect to give to my wonderful Grandmother for Christmas this year.

Love Mail

Hi everyone,  Happy Sunday!  Hope you are having a great day 🙂

I had a bit of time in my craft room this morning and once again found myself playing with some of the lovely Maja Designs paper (I just can’t seem to get enough of it… lol) so decided to pop on with a quick post for you.

For this project, I used the Samantha Walker Stationary Box found here to make a lovely little vintage storage note box which I thought was perfect to hold all of those special notes you want to keep!

The Warmth of Winter

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!  I just wanted to pop on today with a quick post for the fun little challenge from Frilly and Funkie where the theme is  The Warmth of Winter.

For this project, I am using the papers by Maja Design purchased from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.   I am just in love with these papers and can hardly wait for my next project so I can use them again!
