Shadow Box Curiosities

 
I have been busily working away on new displays for the LSS, Scrapbooker's Paradise!  Today I get to work on the Tim Holtz section!  YAY!!!  There's a few new goodies too.    I started by deconstructing this old shadow box and giving it a fresh look.  My way;)

 
The new letterpress letters are here!  The new frameworks dies and papers!
 
 
I layered foiled tape, embossed and painted.  I stamped on the Fluer de lis with the new Bird Feather stamp.  I love this one.  The picture wheel is distressed and some added film ribbon!  Did you Know; the film ribbon was given out at the 2014 Oscars in the goodie bags!
 
 
The new honeycomb FRAMEWORKS die just arrived.  It adds a great layer.  I used the new 8x8 Menagerie!
 
I filled the jar with this gauze fabric and added some rub ons.  Love the wood letterpress!
I love the window and pediments element.
Just a random box of numbers including a domino I painted.
These are the new Found Relative Portraits cards!  They are sooo cool.  I tore the ends off to fit the box then attached the torn edges to the outer box.  I gave the card a slight bend to fit.  Looks amazing!
This is my favorite one.  I stamped the random quotes script stamp onto water colour paper, vintage photo distressed ink and water coloured it.  More rubs on the ink well then I sanded it to further grunge it up.

I just love it!
 
 
Creating each box to tell it's own story!
 
I used TH Washi to wrap the edges.  I don't use washi that often but that was quick!
I kept the hardware from the old shadow box and used it for house numbers.
Pulled together this reclaimed shadow box has a new refreshed look.
If you live in the area and want to see this pop down to Scrapbooker's Paradise.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
