It's time again for that much anticipated Papertrey Release! I'm always blown away with what amazing things the other ladies come up with... Amazed is really an understatement!
I thought it would be fun to create something Elegant using Spiral Bouquet. When I see fine lined images like this I think Technique and Crayon Resist came to the front right away! Prism has great Polished White cardstock for this!
Ella helped me with this one. She saw me stamping and said "Can I stamp with your tree Mommy?" I looked over puzzled at what she was talking about... there's no tree in this set... And there it was... sweet girl was seeing out of the box! I was considering making just some tags... but went ahead and worked it into a simple mini note card. My thought is that I could insert a gift card on the inside then hang it from the tree as a surprise present for someone!
Now... I just fell in LOVE with the new Monogram sets that Nichole came out with... Sweet AND Elegant all at once! Creating with these is EASY to do and they lend themselves well to ANY pattern paper! What FUN!
I Used WeR's fantastic White Out Line Paper and trims. I love being able to curve clear sentiments!
I also seem to be creating a lot of party ensembles lately so I thought I would make a little baby shower favor...
now at the time I didn't have anything really yummy in house to stuff in there... but this smartie will give you an idea of size. I actually think a little Almond Roca would look pretty cute in there! Ito create the word "girl" I simply stamped the G first the inked the "irl" on the clear stamp... easy peasy with clear stamps to line those up and just make it happen!
Finally I created this Christmas Keepsakes box. Every year we end up getting cards and photos...and I hate to throw any away. I typically just put them in a little pile and store them away with the decorations. This box will act as a keeper of those items. That way when New photos come every year we can pull that box out and compare to see how each family has grown!
I used Webster's Pages Lovely Christmas Line for this box. There are a few details that I had fun creating... the suspended Monogram center and the outer paper frame. these little details took time but I think they really add to the finished project. Also sanding helped define the edges on this box...adding to the rustic, yet elegant feel I was looking for. Now... if you haven't already ...check out Pine's box.... HOLY COW! Her designs just take my breath away!
Thanks for stopping by... Hope the rest of the day brings a smile to your face!
