We have a fabulous new challenge at A Vintage Journey this month
Sandy is our host and she is challenging us to use our beautiful scrapbook papers we have hoarded over the years. You can find all the details of the challenge HERE at A Vintage Journey as well as some fabulous inspiration from my Creative Guide team mates.
I have had fun using some of my favourite Stamperia papers and combining them with Eileen Hull's Dies.
I can't tell you how difficult I found it to use these papers! I thought I was going to need counselling after I cut the first piece! The problem is they are double sided and are absolutely fabulous on both sides. In fact it took me ages to even decide which piece of paper to use!
I have used Eileen's Trinket Die to make the outside box. I really love this die and you can cut the paper quite economically. I have left the aperture open and and filled it with one of the most gorgeous tags in the whole set.
Inside the box is a small notebook and I have used another of Eileen's dies, the Needle Book, to make this. Again I have cut a large tag from the papers and placed it directly over the die to get the most from the paper.
I have used the title plate from Eileen's Box Storage Die as well for the cover.
A little bit of paper decoration inside using another tag ..... along with tea stained papers.
I am hoping that my gorgeous grandaughter will love this box and book in a couple of years time as I certainly had her in mind whilst making it. But in the meantime I will just keep on drinking in these lovely papers!
As always thank you so much for joining me for this new challenge and I hope we can encourage you to join in and use some of your lovely paper stash!
Have a lovely weekend.
