The round table.

The Round table- The best storage unit.
One of the best things of having a really well stocked scrapbooking shop in your
own town (scraping 4 keeps) is the classes you can attend.
After collecting the tins I wanted to use I arranged and attached the tins on the board. The board spun around so I could choose the tools I require while scrapping.

Most of the paper I use was Graphic 45  "Steampunk spells collection" range . I am totally in love with Graphic 45. I also made tin embellishments using my Big Shot and ink stamps.
This project is on my work bench and is used all the time.

Hello Bloggers.
I had the great pleasure to work with these lovely papers which inspired me to create a gift box for my valentine. The lucky recipient was my husband who appreciated the chocolates but seem to get more enjoyment from the gift book.

I started by painting the suit case with smoke blue paint and edged the corners with silver ink. I used the butterflies collection to cover the outside. I then fussy cut some of the butterflies gluing them down in the centre and lifting the wings up to make them appear they are sitting there.

I used silver and blue glitter glue to highlight the flowers and butterflies. I placed small crystals
beside the flowers as I was trying to catch the light.


Inside I  placed some yummy chocolates and a valentine voucher book made from the butterfly collection paper.
The inside lid I continued the silver glitter and used a lace love heart to represent the valentine theme.

 I had fun using the papers to make the voucher book. I found the papers worked well for small projects like this one. Some of the Vouchers were "Get out of yard work for the day" or "Control of the remote."Don't worry there was a use by date.

  I used the round silver Diamante trim as a strip of embellishment and cut each individual ones as the studs for the suitcase.  

Thank you for having a look at my project and I look forward to creating many more creations with megs gardens wonderful scrapbooking treasures.

Recently my amazing daughter graduated from university and I wanted to display the photos in a eye catching way. This is what I came up with. On the outside of the box is the cover of the programme with the Charles Sturt University emblem and the date. The lid is suppose to represent the hat worn (mortarboard) when graduating. When the lid is removed the pages flap out. (Explosion box)
I was able to display many different sized photos and a cute chalk board school easel in the middle.
