 Hello everyone,

Monday today, busy weekend but no pics, just busy, had a busy morning too today so far, but now I'm shattered so thought I would pop up a post on something I made last week or so. and then could be afternoon couch time.

I have a lot of fun making these boxes, filling them up with stuff from my stash and just wish I could stop being so uniform on each panel, Ive tried hard here to mix it up a bit..


This one started off with being pink, but went on a vintage journey 
when I was picking papers, so vintage it is..

Resi frames and flowers..

and very old 3D stamps, they have even lost their sticky..

So got all that stuff together..

And this is the lid, an envelope from new die,
 a 3D stamp inside it, flowers lace and butterfly..

Bow open...

Added an apple because I could, and a floating butterfly. with vellum

This frame says Happy birthday..

This one says, "hope your day is filled with sunshine"..
Little strips of white lace to soften a bit and tiny rose buds..

And the box open with the lid close by..

And sold..
and there is a tiny tag inside which was personalised for the lady who bought it.

Thank you so much for stopping by

I'll see you tomorrow..


And a couple of recent wins..

I do love a nice exploding box and this one is gorgeous Chrissy. So many beautiful elements, it looks stunning no surprise it sold so fast. Got to say I love the little apple, very sweet.
Hope you have a nice afternoon on the couch, I may be doing that later as the sky is black overhead, not a good look for a day in the garden :)) xx

This is stunning! Every side is different, yet nicely matching. I have never made an exploding box and I imagine it would take me forever to coordinate everything.
