Matchbook Mini

 Happy Wednesday everyone, here is a little Matchbox Mini that I created with a matching booklet inside.
 This is the smaller version of the matchbook boxes from Graphic 45.
 The paperline is Graphic 45's Place in time. And this is using the March paper.

 The inside is decorated and the actual box is painted with Inka Gold by Viva Decor. This beeswax based cream goes on so smoothly and covers amazingly!! And the tool that I used to apply it.... was my finger! After I covered the box, I rubbed  it with a paper towel and it's so shiny and smooth I love it!!
 This is just a simple foldout with a few pockets for tags, and blank spaces for a couple of photos. I'm thinking of making a little board book later tho?

 The tags are cut aparts from the paper, and I added ribbons on them.

 A little fussy cut of the birdys and they make a welcoming cover.
You can actually see the shine on this little box!
Well everyone, have a happy scrappy day! Hop over to Scrapbooker's Paradise to see the complete supply list. Thanx for dropping by :-)

Honey Pop **Giveaway**

Hello Everyone, here is a Valentine page to get you in the spirit. We have a new Feature Item at Scrapbooker's Paradise, Honey pop paper. It's fun to play with and you can win your own by leaving a comment on the blog. 
Between Jan 16 and 31 you can purchase Honey pop paper regular price $6.99 for only $5.99. Also if you order online the coupon code is FIHP. Just type that in the comment section. 

The first step was to chose a color of honey pop paper from the many choices. 
I drew a heart on the paper making sure the arrow was running in the right 
direction so my heart opened properly.

The mat I chose is the sparkly paper from Best Creations,
my adhesive of choice was fabritac, and then I rolled the photo
so the glue got a good contact with the paper.

I cut a shape out of cardstock with my lucky 8 punch.

The white lace is cut out of paper, to give it dimmension  
I dabbed liquid pearls across the top and it almost looks real now!

Cupid was cut out using the Sizzix die Word Play.

My cute little honey pop heart.

A little glitter...

Hello all :-) Happy January and 2013!  
 Here is a little page with big bling!
 First step was to cover the chipboard pieces. For the first one I used smooch and covered the flourish with Cappuccino color. 
 Then I needed a center for the rosettes and as hard as I looked I could not find a brad I liked, so, I dipped a glue dot in the same glitter that I used for the second flourish, and now they match :-)

 This is the second flourish. I used the Ranger "Sticky" embossing powder. First step is to cover the item with "Emboss it"  then sprinkle on the "Sticky" now with your heat tool, heat the Sticky, once it is heated it gets sticky, hence the name, and now you can sprinkle the glitter on top of it. Now heat it lightly again, not too long you don't want to melt your glitter, or flock or whatever you have chosen, just lightly to reheat the glue.  This is the piece that matched the flower centers.

 For the smaller flourish I tied the ribbon around the center of it. Then I added 2 keys to a jump ring, and fed the ribbon thru the ring, then I tied another knot to hold the keys in.  Depending on the photo, I could tie the ribbon on any part of the flourish. 

 The striped piece under the photo was cut with the interchangeable American Crafts edge punch.
Before it's glued down, you can see where I cut the corner of the frame. I loved the paper but I wanted a border of the contrasting brown, so I cut out the edge, snipped it in a few places, and repositioned it a bit smaller so there is room for the brown to show. I used fabritac to glue it down, I don't think much else would stick to the glitter. Added a few layers for the photo mat, and I have a finished page. Have a Happy Scrappy day.
