Great News!!!

Hey everyone!! I know I have been lazy with my blog all summer longgggg....BUT I just had to share some really exciting news!! I have been invited to design for my Local Scrapbooking Store!! It's definitely a new venture for me, and I am super thrilled to be a part of an amazing design team over there. I look forward to sharing and creating with them!!

My first design team project was made for August. I was given a really outdated wooden jewelry box to alter that was found at Value Village for super cheap. And let me tell you, it was just screaming to get made-over. It had this really bright red velvet lining on the inside with these plastic notches to hold things in. I couldn't wait to get started! I wish I had taken a picture of the before, but I just hadn't thought that far ahead at the time LOL :p

I had to sand the box down, then primed it with some gesso and painted the whole thing in "country maple" colored acrylic paint.
The Box was 14" x 12" and the paper I used for this project was Webster's Pages Country Estate, as well as some stickers - turned into chipboard pieces - from the same collection.

I took some alphabet diecuts from the G45 Times Nouveau collection and used glossy accents to accent the diecuts and adhered them with dimensionals and added black pearl trim above it to look like a necklace.

 I lined the inside of the box with black satin fabric and used some cream colored pearl trim. I also adhered some more of the Webster's Pages paper.

I wanted to make a mini to put inside the box, so I pulled out my brand new Bind-It-All and created a small 6 page Gatefold Mini Album.
 To keep with the theme of the box, I used the rest of the Webster's Pages Country Estate collection to create this mini album with. I LOVE this paper!!!

Here are some pictures of the inside pages of this album.

Happy scrapping!!!
