Shadow Box

Here is a shadow box I made from spellbinders dies and chipboard.  I used to have a tutorial on Instructagram on how to make you own shadow box but when I went to link it I realized it was gone, so I will make another using step by step photos.  I also layered the flowers by stamping them multiple times, cutting, and then layering  various pieces of the flowers but its so hard to get the dimension of this in a picture.  First I was fighting with a reflection and shadows from the frame and then second trying to get a good shot of the inside bits it really tough but it is very dimensional and nicer in real life.

Supplies used: Unity Stamps, Shinhan Touch Markers, Enamel Dots, Spellbinders Scallop Squares, Squares, Floral Flourishes

Sigh Where does time go

Sigh... I know its a cliché but where does the time go.  I can't believe that my little girl is growing up.  I was scrapbooking on a retreat and brought some pictures that were three years old and I got a bit misty eyed when I saw the pictures.  They are growing up so fast, and the little girl in this picture is a lot bigger and a lot cuter (okay I may be biased on that one).

Supplies used: Simple Stories I am, American Crafts Cardstock, Doiley, Foil Paper, Sizzix dies

Quick and Easy Mini Album

I just wanted to share a quick and easy mini album I figured out how to make. A friend brought one to a crop but couldn't remember how to make it so once I had the pattern figured out I made one for myself. I think this is a nice one that would make a great gift and since it has pockets I put some photo mats in them and stamped a journal box on the other side and added some washi for a cute touch.
