In the Box

I am thrilled, the first of my Sizzix goodies has arrive.  I didn't realize part of my winning Sizzix contest meant I was able to choose a ton of dies.  One of the dies I have been DYING to try is the Eileen Hull Candy Drawer!  I love making 3D projects so this was the first die I cracked open.
 
 
I used some 8x8 TH paper stash and within about 20 min the whole box was papered.  I then cut a tiny tag and added the numbers.

 
I added some of my tattered pinecone flowers and added some glitter. 

 
I cut some mini trophies and used the eroded metal technique. 

 
I wanted to show you the side of how I connected the trophies.

 
So stinkin adorable the inside of this 2 1/2x 1 1/2 box.

 
I popped my Pandora bracelet in the box to give you an idea how big it is.

 
I added the Idea-Ology pull for the drawer.

 
Some more glitter to the flower on the top.

 
It's my first attempt at making these great candy drawer boxes.  I have plans for this die!

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...

Basket of Blooms

May Flowers are this months theme for the Inspiration Team.  I am thrilled the snow has finally melted, the trees have leaves and the bumbles are flying around.  I created a Basket of Blooms For Sale.  Love these flowers!

I cut the Basket die with chipboard and sprayed.  All the Spring Leaves and Pansy cuts are done with watercolor paper.  Coated in Dylusions Shimmer Spray.  HOLY SHIMMERY COLOUR!
Did I mention it's messy!  WOOT WOOT!
I love these colourful blooms agains the dark stained wooden basket.



I hope your May Flowers are coming in and the Bumbles are happy.  Don't forget to check out with the team is up to all month long sharing their May Inspiration.
