holy wow, chickens. LOTS going on in my personal life right now, and i've got some HUGE hurdles to clear, but i'm confident it's all going to work out as it should and i'll be okay. yesterday i received some big (and bad) news, but i also celebrated 10 years since the day my husband and i met. we're off to NYC in a couple of hours and i'm SO excited, but it's bittersweet coupled with the other stuff. still, i'm determined to enjoy myself, and his company, and it's going to be a nice little escape. :)
today, i've got a post that was shared on the Crafter's Companion USA Facebook page yesterday - yet ANOTHER little box created with my Ultimate Tool (and i just got another of the embossing boards, so there will be many more forthcoming!):
this one's a simple box, the perfect size for some little trinkety goodness. the nice thing about the box feature is that as long as the papers are the exact same size, you don't have to worry about the actual measurements. just score, snip and stick.
the floral stamp is from Sheena Douglass - "Lily of the Valley", stamped on Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. i colored this and select areas on my sentiment cut with my Spectrum Noir markers:
leaves - LG2, LG3, JG1
flower petals - TN1, GB2, LY3
flower centers - TN1, TN3, TN5
other (on sentiment panel) - GB2, CR7
some bits and bobs to fill the white space, everything coming from the Paper Issues Swag Bags, and voila! a cute way to give someone a gift welcoming them into their new home! or returning from a trip. or just finding a way to relax and enjoy some down time with loved ones.
