Timeless Blessings Keepsake box

Huge box that i created for a christmas present for someone special.  its a secret till after christmas lol..  Uses a ton of flowers from wild orchid crafts and I am roses.  Majority of the yellow flowers are from I am roses except for the big yellow ones. The Hinge handle i used on this box i received inspiration from a few girls on facebook who did that idea.  I love it since i am always putting door pulls on my projects.  This will be so much cheaper lol.. I used on the base of the box the green paper from websters pages park drive collection and the torn pieces around the sides of the box are from older websters collections.  Any way i hope you enjoy the box and I thank you for stopping by.  Much love and Hugs, Merry christmas and happy new year.


Perpetual Calendar

I love this idea i received from a very talented lady on Face Book named Kerry Schnitzer Duff.   They do make a fabulous christmas present because it is the gift that keeps on giving.  A Calendar that can be used forever and ever and even past on to a younger generation as a keep sake.  To me that is an amazing present to give someone.  Not only is it handmade but it keeps on giving and looks sweet on your desk at work or at home.

The papers i used for this calendar are by Websters Pages, PARK DRIVE.  I love this paper and i just want to keep ordering but i will just have to hoard the rest that i have for now lol.. i painted a wooden box that i got at micheals craft store white, inside and out.  I also got the little feet from micheals craft store in the wood section and painted them a light pink, then covered in Tim Holtz rock candy and put Martha Stewart white irredecent sprinkles on top to dry and give it a nice shabby girly feel.  All the letters and numbers are from THICKERS i had in my stash and i painted them all white to keep with the shabby feel.  I used chipboard for the number blocks, days of the week and months and painted all of that white before applying the papers..  All of the flowers are from Wild orchid crafts.  The title plate by Tim Holtz i painted antique white and the butterflies are from a martha stewart punch.  I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by.  Hugs carrie

the beautiful laces i used are from Sara Mcdowell in some happy mail she sent that i just love how feminine they make the project and of course some beautiful prima dangles for an added touch.
