Tutti Designs - Fall is in the Air

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

This week I'm back to share another die from the August Release.
This is one of the gorgeous Fall dies.
It's called "Leaves Background" die.
You can find it right HERE.

A die like this makes it so easy to create a beautiful card!
I simply cut it out of my favorite Fall papers, 
and backed it with a coordinating paper.
It's then been adhered to an A2 card base.

All I added was a pretty bow.

Here you can see some of the detail this die gives in the veins on the leaves:

A quick and easy card...but oh, so pretty!

Other Materials Used:
Papers: Basic Grey - Indian Summer;
Ribbon: Celebrate It.

I'll be back next week with a new project.

Tutti Designs - Where Did It Go?

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

This is my first share from the August Release,
and I have combined two of the new dies on my card.
I have used the Spiderweb Window Die,
and the Spiderweb Corner Die.

Most of you know that I don't do Halloween, 
and I know many of you don't either.
So I got a little bit creative with my project.

Here's the front of my card:

I cut the die once in white.
Then I cut just the spider again in black, and adhered it on top.
I added Stickles to the spider web to make it sparkle.

Here's a closer look at the die:

Here's the inside of the card:

Finally, here's a closer look at this die:

Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Sentiment: The Nickel Nook;
Ribbon: Offray - Picot Edge;
Bling: Stickles - Star Dust.

Swedish House Crafts - Vintage Photo File Box With Pion Design Images

Hello, my friends!

I'm back today with a new project for Swedish House Crafts!

Do you LOVE all the gorgeous vintage images from Pion Designs as much as I do? 
I just love to look at them! 
I decided it was time to come up with a pretty project 
that would help me to enjoy looking at them more often. 
So I came up with this little photo file box. 
Here it is:

I found a simple little unfinished wood box in my stash 
but it could easily be made from chipboard or heavy cardstock. 
Since the photos are tinted with a pretty pink, I painted my box in a soft pink colour. 
I trimmed the photo down, inked the edges, and matted it with kraft cardstock. 
Then I adhered it to the front of the box. 
Here's a closer look:

 I chose another photo and repeated the process for the back of the box.

To fill up the sides of the box, I used a decorative punch with some kraft cardstock. 
I adhered it in place and then added some pretty pink rhinestones. 

When everything was in place, 
I inked all the edges of the box to give it an aged look. 
Suha has some fabulous sets of Bronze Box Feet in the shop. 
They come in a set of four feet, along with one handle, and they come in several sizes. 
I used the small set and added the four feet to the bottom four corners of the box. 
Don't they dress the box up beautifully?

I then added the handle to the top of the front of the box. 
If you are using a chipboard or cardstock box, this handle can be added with brads. 
Since my box was made of wood, I adhered it in place, 
and then added pretty pink rhinestones into the brad holes. 

You may have noticed that I have something in my box. 
I cut tags of both kraft and soft pink cardstock. 
I made them just a little bit taller than my box, and rounded the top corners, 
so they would extend a bit above the box. 
I chose more of the beautiful photos with the soft pink tinting, matted them, 
and adhered them to the tags. 

Isn't it a fun way to be able to enjoy these beautiful vintage images? 
It's so much fun to make too! 
Why not pick up some of these goodies from Swedish House Crafts, 
and put together your own Vintage Photo File Box? 
Experiment with your own stash box in a different shape or size. 
I'd love to see what you come up with! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'll be back again soon with another fun project! :o)
